Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

This month's edition of the Tandy Newsletter carries some excellent information on making backups of disc files and information. As a rule, it is always a good idea to make a backup of everything so you don't lose it due to the various problems that crop up with magnetic media.

In order to make a backup of a machine language tape, you need to use CSAVEM, but you also need some other information that isn't always easily available.

In the case of the Graphics Printer Driver we mentioned last month, you need this information to make the backup. That information, as in all CSAVEM's is the program's start, end and transfer addresses. To save you the trouble. of looking for it, the proper command for the 16K Driver is CSAVEM"FTFX16",15744, 16576,15744.

If you use that, you can make backup copies of the Driver.
