It was on ebay. It was for a CC40 with a 16KB RAM cart, a pen
plotter/printer, wide carriage printer, modem, the wafertape drive, and
some wafertapes. The main thing I was interested in was the wafertape
drive -- I already have the other items. It was originally an
open-ended auction, and nobody had bid on it yet, so I mailed the seller
and said: put a $120 buy it now price and I'll buy it. I should have
shot lower, because he agreed too readily. :-) In retrospect, it was
more than I really should have spent on it, but they are hens teeth, so
I bought it.
The timespan from listing until purchase was probably about an hour.
