RE: Does a nibbler for a CBM 8250 exist?

If you want to try EMUTIL, it sounds like you can use your 2031 as a
go-between.  Download the program onto a PC -- transferit to a C64 using one
of the zillions of PC<->C64 transfer methods, then use a C64 and 1541 to
transfer it to a 1541 disk, then load it from the '41 disk using the 2031.  

I'm afraid I can't try it with my own C900 disks, because I don't HAVE any.
Heck, I'm still working on my power supply issue with my C900 -- building
that clock circuit appears to be my only remaining step to bliss.

Even then I'll only have whatever is on the hard drive. :(
