The store in Bloomington where all us Apple ][ geeks would hang out, Data Domain, used to have one of these floating around.
While I wonder what happened to the owner of Data Domain - I recall there was some legal tussling on the demise of the business - and so many of the IndianAppleUs user group, I can contemplate (but not bid) on owning an available for auction Apple I.
Like I need more nonfunctional hardware here or in my attic....

Attic? What attic? Honey, you must have misspelled "in the living room."
Your loving wife.
Actually, I did mean attic. Wherein are stored at least two computers and numerous bits of CP/M software.
Mike will be able to verify these punk-rock-stickered items are of some historic value.
-e, building an RS232 802.11b interface in his copious dreamtime
you are KIDDING.
I even managed to place what I honestly thought was the last of my old Kaypros a few years back.
So I think what you must have there are my sister's old kaypro 2 and, um, my dad's kaypro 10?
Do you still have the acoustic coupler modem, too?
(Chris: you may have to check this out.)
Yes, those would be they. I think those model numbers are accurate. I'll letcha know in a week or so.
I'm not sure I even remember CP/M commands any more. Maybe physical memory will take over. And I think there's some docs there too....
(scroll to the bottom of the page for the REALLY distracting, but undeniably cute, site navigation)
I can't recall is this emulator runs in classic or osx; classic, i suspect - which is nice an' meta now innit?
c> pip foo.baz foo.bar
but the syntax is counterintuitive - destination first, or something.
The emulator was able to run all the cp/m binaries I have carefully hand portaged over the years, so that I was actually able to open all my college papers and even old saved games of ADVENT.
