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)

Where am I??

You probably know you can make multiple saves to tape simply by enclosing the CSAVE command in a loop. And, it’s a good idea to do this because there is no way to verify a tape write and if there is a tape problem, your copy can be lost.

Sometimes, though, those saves are long and you just sit there wondering "where am I?"

Here's a way to figure it out: Just put a counter in your direct command. Then, you'll know what CSAVE you are on. The direct command line looks like this: FOR X=1 TO 3:PRINT "ON SAVE"X:CSAVE "filename":NEXT X

If you want to save more or less than three programs, change the three in the X-loop. If you want to put space between the individual saves, add the following after the last colon above

MOTOR ON:FOR Y=1 TO 750:NEXT Y:MOTOR OFF:
