Disk No: 2650 Disk Title: BLANK-IT, PIK, and BOTHSIDES PC-SIG Version: S1 Program Title: Blank-It Author Version: 4.1A Author Registration: $10.00/$15.00 Special Requirements: Hard drive. BLANK-IT is a program that will black out the computer display after a certain "timeout" period to prevent screen burning. "Burn-in," not an uncommon problem, results from allowing a computer screen to display the same image for long periods of time, and can ruin a monitor. As long as the computer keyboard is in use, there's no evidence that BLANK-IT is even running. However, if the keyboard is left untouched for several minutes (customizeable from 1 to 59 minutes), then the screen will automatically blank. When the space bar is pressed, the screen will reappear and the user will be right where he or she left off. BLANK-IT contains several advanced features, such as a quick-blank "hot key" (sometimes referred to as a "Boss Key"), and the ability to enable/disable BLANK-IT while it's loaded. It uses only 528 bytes of memory, works during high speed communication, and has added support for graphics mode. Program Title: PIK Author Version: 1.20 Author Registration: $7.00/$15.00 Special Requirements: Hard drive. PIK is a useful little 32K utility which allows you to pick files from the standard DOS "DIR" display to mark for Deleting, Copying, Moving or Zipping into a Zip format compressed file. How many times have you typed "DIR" to examine the contents of a directory and seen several files which should be moved, deleted, or stored for later use in ZIP format. Typing the commands necessary to accomplish the task could take some time. By typing "PIK," you can select the files upon which to perform the necessary operation right from the display left behind by the "DIR" command. Once the files have been marked, you just press ENTER and you are on your way to keeping your files updated. Program Title: BothSides Author Version: 3.5 Author Registration: $10.00/$15.00 Special Requirements: Hard drive. As its name indicates, BOTHSIDES formats text files of any pagination method so they can be printed to both sides of your printer paper. The program can send your file directly to the printer. First it prints the odd numbered pages, then stops to let you turn the paper over and prints the even numbered pages. It can also format your text files by paginating them and printing a footer containing title line and page number at the bottom of every page. In addition, you can specify an inside margin to leave more room for binder holes! Imagine how much paper you could save and how much thinner your documentation will be from all the shareware packages you print out!
