   I bought one (that uses an interface card) attached to a Columbia
portable and an EPROM eraser for $100. I bought another new that
interfaces to a printer port for $25 at a hamfest.

   I had completely forgotten about having that Columbia until you asked
about the programmer. Anyone know much about this computer? I've never
used it for anything but EPROM programming, it boots and loads the
programming program automatically.
