I received this offer as well, in answer to my last email to him
describing my prlink setup. I declined, because transferring lots of
8250 disks is really boring, and I still have about 50 left from my last
batch :-( I told him to buy a PC64 cable from Joe Forster's X1541 Shop
and transfer the disks himself, which is undoubtedly a lot cheaper and
more fun for everybody. At last it is a good experience to see data
being transferred between your 8bit and the PC, but it's no fun to make
it as a job. I'm willing to help him configure prlink as well, so this
shouldn't be a problem.
