  You're a very perceptive man.

  Specifically, the machine was an IMSAI 8080 chassis with a CCS Z80
CPU board and 64K of static RAM.  A pair of Shugart SA-801 8" SS/SD
disk drives and CP/M 2.2.

  Shortly thereafter I obtained a very beefy DEC PDP11/34a system
which I adored.  I still have the IMSAI CP/M machine, but I sold the
PDP11/34a.  Now, though, I have a different one, and lots of other
PDP11s.  And a few PDP8s. :)
