ET SHAREWARE PROGRAMS as of 03/22/91 (written by Charles Eglinton)

POSTAL91: DID YOU KNOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO ADDRESS MAIL IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS
WITH NO PUNCTUATION? Read all about it in POSTAL91. All the new 1991
postal information including new postage rates, what is needed for the
2-cent Postal Barcode discount, new addressing rules, and info about
a free postal service to convert your mail-list zip codes to ZIP+4.

BeepMe (Formerly FONECALL, since 1985) - BeepMe will call your pager whenever
someone leaves a message on your standard home answering machine. Also,
BeepMe can be used as an alarm clock/reminder system. Give BeepMe a
list of dates and times, and BeepMe will call your pager at those dates
and times. NEW! The registered version of BeepMe can work in the
background as a TSR-memory resident program, freeing your computer for
other activities. WHO CAN USE BeepMe? Consultants, Repairmen, Home
Office Professionals: BeepMe will allow you to respond to client
messages in minutes. If you have a pager, BeepMe is like having a
remote phone ringer in your pocket - wherever you go.

LAPTOP GASGAUGE: for battery-fueled laptop computers. This 10K TSR, estimates
the remaining battery charge by monitoring how long the laptop has been
turned on. The registered version of GasGauge has a LARGE VISIBLE
cursor option and can perform a "deep discharge" of the battery, which
maximizes charge capacity and negates the "memory effect." GASGAUGE was
called "one of the most popular files accessed on the the PC Board" by
On-Line Life Magazine (p.23, April 1989). The current GASGAUGE is
1/10th the size of the original version. Look for "LAPTOP*.ZIP"

IRSLOG: A 1.5K TSR program logs the date, time & elapsed time of every program.
Hey Managers- Night-Ridder News Service said it best: "simply [load] a
tiny memory-resident program on the office computers and in the wee
hours of the morning ... print out reports that show how long each
computer was used (including energy consumption), which programs were
used and for how long ... We loved running this little gem." Look for
IRSLOG*.ZIP

BARCODES: Prints UPC, Code 39, and Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes on any EPSON/IBM
compatible dot matrix printer from a command line. Also available are
barcode soft fonts for Hewlett Packard compatible laser printers. These
routines are proven in the Automotive industry. Look for "BARCODE*.ZIP".

REMOTE CONTROL: Software lets you use a modem and fax on one line, or a modem
and answering machine on one line. Use your existing modem host or
"co-pilot" software. Also, RemoteControl call your pager whenever a
call has been received by your answering machine. Remote Control resets
on false alarms and loss of carrier. (All this with only 1 phone line!).
Remote Control is only $35 + $4 s/h

* "cost effective approach to handling line sharing problems", says
PC Magazine, December 11, 1990, (p 370)
* "Best bet...for the Home Office", PC Computing, October 1990,p.330
* "It's useful, it works, and it's a lifesaver", Computer Monthly
* "Absolutely bulletproof", says David Abrahamson, CAR & Driver
* "Slick", says Ron Albright, writer for Computer Shopper

GOTTA_GO: Want to hang-up on that long-winded caller without offending? Simply
select one of the GOTTA_GO sound effects on your PC. While the sound
comes out of the PC speaker, use one of the excuses that appear on
the screen. Select from Police Siren, Phone Ringing, Office Paging,
Fire Engine, Hum on phone line, Birds loose and other sound effects.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
