It is doubtful that it exists. The story is such an exact match
to the easter egg in TRS-DOS 2.x (that really DOES exist), that
the story is almost certainly a corruption of the TRS-DOS story,
unless Randy Cook got the idea from Gary Kildall?
There is also a [presumably apocryphal] story of the TRS-DOS
easter egg being used in court.
