SIM doubler?

    I seem to remember it was possible to get "sim doublers"? A friend has
    a machine with 2 SIM slots, with 256MB RAM in each and wants a gig.
    They would like to buy a 512MB SIM, and then use both the existing
    256MB SIMS.

    Any ideas? Thoughts?

    Thanks

    That was a while ago. Mostly SIMM savers were designed to let you fit 4
    x 30-pin SIMMs in a 72-pin slot, although I believe you could get them
    to fit 2 x 72-pin SIMMS into a 168-pin slot.
    Modern memory is DIMM, not SIMM. As far as I know there has never been
    a DIMM saver - I expect it would be difficult to implement because of
    the higher speed of modern memory, and not particulalry worthwhile
    because the price has come down so much. He'll have to get a pair of
    512MB and sell the 2x256MB, but make sure that the motherboard will
    handle it first. What does he do that needs a gig anyway?
