Sun 18-Apr-93: I have updated to
"A simple calculator and pacer for a jogging enthusiast". Corrected
the midnight bug in "PACE.EXE Timer to pace your calisthenics".
Added FILE_ID.DIZ "Brief characterization of tsjog". Some BBS
systems scan for a FILE_ID.DIZ in uploaded packages and, if found,
use its contents as the description in their annotated file list.
Added a brief "TSJOG.INF A readme".

Sat 1-Feb-92: I have updated my average speed & time calculator
JOG.EXE. A user (Hamish Whittal [email protected]) suggested that
the one kilometer intervalling option is insufficient. I have
consequently extended the usage to be
JOG DistanceKm Time [ComparisonDistance] [/i[IntervalMeters]]
include Interval schedule -+
The jog program is part of me hence updated package

Sat 7-Dec-91: Updated my simple average speed & time / km calculator
JOG.EXE to include interval timing for each kilometer (optional
switch /i). It is available as

Sun 20-Jan-91: I have updated one of my oldest packages, the jogging
calculations to be /pc/ts/tsjog11.arc. It contains a simple jog.exe
calculator to give your average per kilometer speed and a comparison
to Cooper's test. The output of jog can now (optionally) be redirect
in the customary MsDos manner. The usage of jog is simple:
JOG distance [hh:]mm:ss [ComparisonDistance]
I have added a pace.exe program, which simply shows the elapsed
time to pace whatever calisthenics you may be doing. The time is
shown in really big figures taking up the whole width of the screen,
and changing text color once every minute.
These programs are not intended to be fancy as programs, but
to perform their simple tasks as practical aids to a hobby.

  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:
