You can find one for sale from time to time on the usenet. What I am
looking for is an expansion box called the Spartan which enable the C64
to run Apple ][ software. It was an emulator, basically.

On another note, has anyone ever seen (or have) a Basis-xxx? I know it
has a number in the name, but I can't remember it. It was an Apple ][
clone that also ran CP/M I believe? Something like that. I'm sure
someone knows about it. I only knew one guy who ever had one, but I never
saw it. It was a friend in high school back in 1989.
