Bootstrapping Xmodem on a TRS-80

I recently purchased a circa-1984 TRS-80 Model 4P, and am slowly but surely figuring out how to use it.

While I decide if I’m going to invest in a FreHD hard disk drive emulator, I need a way to transfer files onto TRS-80 floppy disks in some other way, and for now that means a null modem cable and a connection to another computer…but without a reliable Xmodem client, how does one reliably transfer files?

I have ideas. Let’s see if I can bring them to fruition.

Also, be warned: I’m trying to figure out this blogging software, and things might be ugly and/or change significantly while I’m working on it.
