WAIT is a program that allows you to reboot
your computer, and will allow you to Abort the Loading
of your BBS, and if no key is pressed, it will contine the
loading of your bbs software.

REBOOT was designed to reboot your computer nightly.

Reason For Creation of REBOOT:
Due to many sysops are having the problem keeping their
boards running when they take vacations, I decide to supply
this solution, and hopefully it will eliminate the problem.

Remarks and Comments contained inside {} do not include in your
.Bat Files.

@Echo Off
If Errorlevel 10 goto end {KEY WAS PRESSED}
If Errorlevel 2 goto bbs {KEY NOT PRESSED}
{Insert Any Programs You Normally Load}
{Ie. Memory Markers, Non-Bbs TSR's}

{Implementation In Nightly Maintaince File}

{File: Maint.Bat}
@Echo Off

It's free. If you like it use it. If you don't like it
then erase it from your disk(s) and forget all about it.
