I wrote this a while ago when I was going out of town for a few days. Since
I had yet to install my *REAL* burglar alarm system, and since I am a sincere
believer in the 'something is better than nothing' school, I wanted to dissuade
any potential housebreaker from running off with more than the microwave.
Included is my basic source so the program can be easily modified. Perhaps
you want to point out the twin dobermans, and automatically triggered 12-guage
shotgun installed at YOUR location!
The program is QB4.5, however the program would run nicely with BASICA if
line numbers were added. The SHELL to BIGECHO can easily be modified or totally
eliminated if one wished.
I altered the TIME$, assuming most burglars would not understand navy time.
I have included the full BIGECHO package that was written in 1986. This
package included WAITN.COM, written in 1983. ALL OF THESE PROGRAMS RUN FINE
on my PS/2 model 30/286 using DOS 4.0! I encountered no problems at all with
these great programs. Check the BIGECHO.DOC for further info.
One thing - make sure the BIGECHO.COM program is where the BASIC program can
find it (same directory, or path to it's location) otherwise you'll get a "Bad
command or file name" message. Because I SHELL to this program, it's as if you
key'ed it in from the command line.
If you make any changes to make the screen message scarier, or have any other
ideas along this line, I would like to hear from you.
Good luck, and enjoy.

  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:
