Thanks Alan,

Great news! The version of "filledt" on this floppy image works
perfectly with my 3B2 emulator! So the version on the disk image
"3B2-DIAG.imd" that's floating around out there is probably NOT meant
for a 3B2/300 or 3B2/400.

"dgmon" doesn't run, for some reason. Or, rather, it runs and then
just silently exits. There don't appear to actually be any diagnostics
on the disk (nothing under /dgn except the EDT data files), so I'm not
sure if that's why it's failing or not.

I borrowed a 3B2 from Ian Finder this weekend (upon pain of death if I
don't return it!) that came with three floppy disks that may or may
not contain diagnostics. I'll image them today and see if they work on
the emulator.
