Micro Cornucopia was a Kaypro oriented magazine, which also had some
MS-DOS stuff in later years. They offered several items for sale for
Kaypro's, such as a 4Mhz modification, and schematics of the system.

I thought I had some of these Kaypro Disks, but can only see a Pro-8
utility disk
at the moment. I wouldn't mind getting copies of the Kaypro disks, but
don't have
any place to host them.

These disks usually were programs without source code.

Micro Cornucopia also had several MS-DOS disks available, some of
which I have. These are (rough names only)
