I have the FLEX disks here, and I believe I have images too.
One problem I found was that FLEX does not run on a Coco3. I've also tried
without success to run the image in an emulator, but even in the MESS coco2
emulator, it hangs at the time & date input prompt. I have not tried Jeff
Vavasour's coco2 emulator.
