Ample Notice Version 3.00
Revised September 27, 1992
(c) Copyright 1987 - 1992 by Mark Harris
All rights reserved.

The main programs on this disk are:

AN.EXE - the appointments calendar program,
ALARM.COM - the pop-up alarm clock,
OUTSIDE.COM - an envelope addresser which takes addresses from
screen or file.

To get started using AN and ALARM first make a backup copy of this
disk, then print the AN manual. The manual has about 46 pages and
can be printed in its entirety by entering
PRINTMAN AN.DOC
To skip the first 4 pages and print the rest of the manual, type
PRINTMAN AN.DOC 4
To view the manual on the screen use the /S option; e.g.
PRINTMAN/S AN.DOC 2

The documentation for OUTSIDE is in the file OUTSIDE.DOC. You can
print or view this file in a similar way:
PRINTMAN OUTSIDE.DOC
PRINTMAN/S OUTSIDE.DOC

Ample Notice installation is described in AN.DOC. The basic idea
is to put the Ample Notice disk in the default drive, then type
ANSETUP. If you are updating from versions 2.00 - 2.04 of Ample
Notice, see AN2TO3.DOC. You can use PRINTMAN as with the other
DOC files described above.

You are licensed to try out the Ample Notice period for a trial
period of 60 days. After that, you must register if you want to
continue to use the software. The file REGISTER.DOC contains a
registration form.

Granny's Old-Fashioned Software is a member organization of the
Association of Shareware Professionals and endorses its high
standards for Shareware distribution and support. If you obtained
Ample Notice from a disk catalog or bulletin board, Granny's does
not receive a cent from the amount you paid. We rely on your
registrations to keep going - please see details below.

If you are a registered user of a previous version of Ample Notice
you may obtain the new printed manual for $5 (foreign: $7) from
Granny's. Changes from version 2.04 include:

The program is fully 'moused'. While a mouse is not required,
you can perform many operations more efficiently with a mouse.

Pull-down menus are used, and command organization is improved.
(Quick keys still let you act immediately as an alternative.)

43 and 50 row displays are now supported.

The help system is much improved and includes examples of
appointment syntax.


Categories are easier to use. Ample Notice will remember which
categories were selected last next time the program is run.

Configuration file options are more intuitive. Several new
options have been added.

The screen territory has been redistributed to give more space
to appointments and less to the monthly calendar.

These changes and many more are described in the manual (printed
or disk version).

--------------------------------------------------------------------

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTS.

You may get an 'Out of Environment' message if you try to run
ANSETUP from a DOS box under Windows. In this case, exit Windows
and install Ample Notice from the DOS prompt. (Then you can run
Windows again with no problem.)

If you get an 'Out of Environment' message during AN installation
when you're just running DOS, you need to increase the size of
your DOS environment. With DOS versions 4 and later, you can
include the line
SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM /e:512 /p
in your CONFIG.SYS file to increase your environment size to 512
bytes. You'll have to boot your computer for the new setting to
take effect.

If you plan to run Ample Notice under DESQview or Windows, please
see the file TECH.DOC for recommended installation.

Also see TECH.DOC if you have problems with calendar borders on
printouts.

If you are unable to use the Help option in Ample Notice, modify
the CONFIG.CAL file to include the location of the help file
AN.HLP; e.g.
HelpFile C:\AN3\AN.HLP

If you have a laser printer (HP compatible) and enjoy REALLY
compressing your appointments, we have a font that will let you
print 25 characters per inch; with it, you can pack 176 lines by
200 columns onto a page. If you would like to obtain this font
and the directions for using it, please send your request with $3
to Granny. Also, we can provide instructions for printing in
landscape mode upon request.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW FEATURES NOT DESCRIBED IN AN.DOC (OR PRINTED MANUAL)

If you want to see Ample Notice automatically the first time you
turn on your computer each day, but not after subsequent power-up
cycles, there is a simple way to accommodate this objective.
There is a short executable file called ANTODAY.COM on the Ample
Notice disk which can be used in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file to run
AN.EXE (and any other programs you like) only if today's date is
different from the date stored the last time that ANTODAY ran.
Just include ANTODAY followed by the letter of the drive on which
you want to save the date (normally C: if you have a hard drive).

ANTODAY returns to the batch file that calls it the value 0 if the
date has not changed and 1 if it has. Here is how you might
include it in AUTOEXEC.BAT:

antoday c:
if not errorlevel 1 goto etc
an
:etc

The line(s) between "if not..." and ":etc" are executed only if
the date has changed. ANTODAY keeps the last access date in the
file ANDATE, so don't remove this file.

A new option for CONFIG.CAL has been added. If you have too many
appointments in a month to print a single month in Month Style
printouts, you'll get the message
Appointment won't fit in column - use wider/longer column.
If you haven't tried the 'Tiny' print style, select this style and
try again. If you still can't fit a month onto a page, add the
line
OneLine
to CONFIG.CAL and run AN again. The new OneLine option causes
only the first lines of appointments to be printed in Month
printouts (but leaves List printouts as before).

------------------------------------------------------------------

Fashioned Software for $5 or a registered package for $35.

SITE LICENSING

For five or more users at a single site the following
licensing arrangements are available:

Registration only: $30 for the first user, $15/user for the
next first four, $10 each additional after that.
Manual and disk: add $5.

For example, if you want to register 20 users and need only 4
disk/manual packages the amount would be 1 x $30 + 4 x $15 + 15 x $10 +
4 x $5 = $260.

For large sites licensing costs are lower; call us to negotiate.

Also available from Granny's is LQ, a program for the IBM PC
and compatible computers which will allow you to produce high-
quality text in a variety of fonts and modes on 9-pin dot matrix
printers. LQ can be 'locked' into memory to function
inconspicuously with your favorite word processor or other
program. The program includes a print spooler which can be set to
any length from 1 - 400K characters. The spooler has been
customized to work with LQ's long graphics sequences very
efficiently (using about 1/40 the space required by a conventional
spooler); you can continue using your computer for other tasks
while documents print in the background.

LQ is available from Granny's Old-Fashioned Software at $35
for the registered package or $10 for the distribution disk.
North Carolina residents please add 6%, foreign orders $3.
Foreign: MC, VISA or U.S. funds drawn on U.S. bank, please.

Granny's reserves the right to change the above prices in the
future.
