/USERNAME blah blah Let's you WHISPER "blah blah" only to "USERNAME"
ACTIONS List of available action verbs
PAGE Let's you page any online BBS user

Actions: you can use these special verbs to do fun things. For example,
and assuming your System Operator hasn't changed these, and that
your name is Bill:

(you type) DRINK

Everyone will see:

Bill is chugging back another!

(you type) KICK FRED

Everyone will see:

Bill just kicked Fred!

Fred will see:

Bill just kicked you!

Please note that some actions must be used by themselves, others must be
used "at" another user, and others may be used either way. In the above
example, we assume that the user's name is FRED. A partial match is all
it takes: KICK FR will work just fine. Of course, if FREDERICK is also
signed on, RAP will match only the first occurence. Finally, the name
ALL is a wildcard and automatically refers to "everone" in the Pub.

TalkTypes: you can use these special verbs in two fun ways. If you use
them BY THEMSELVES, they function similarly to ACTIONS (unless disabled
by your sysop). However, TalkTypes were designed to, quite logically,
modify the way in which you appear to speak to everyone else. Here's an

(you type) cry boo hoo!

Everyone will see:

From Bill, crying: boo hoo!

If you type anything else, your text will be "broadcast" to everyone
currently in the Pub.

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
