I SEE SOME BBS'S ARE NOW CHARGING U TO BE REGISTERED TO USE THEIR SYSTEM. FIRST OF ALL I GIVE U FROM 4 TO 60 HOURS OF MY TIME AT NO COST TO YOU AND I DO NOT LOOK TO KINDLY TO SUCH BBS'S PUTTING ON MY PROCEDURES AND THEN CHARGING U TO GET ACCESS TO THEM. THEY DIDNT SPEND TIME AND COST (SAY 'X' HOURS * $40+) TO MAKE THE PROCEDURES AVAIL. , SO I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT SUCH BOARDS DID NOT USE ANY OF THE 'A.S.P'S' PROCEDURES, UNLESS THEY ARE WILLING TO PUT THEIR WORKS TRULY IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.. ENOUGH SAID.. THANK YOU. IF YOU HAVE A HARD DISK OR WANT TO CREATE A BACKUP COPY THAT IS NOT TIED INTO THE 'GRAPHWRITER' DISKETTE...IN CASE YOUR ONLY COPY GOES BAD .. THIS PATCH WILL REMOVE THE COPY PROTECTION COMPLETELY. AS ALWAYS THIS IS FOR YOUR PERSONAL PEACE OF MIND ONLY IT IS NOT MEANT TO BYPASS ANY COPYRIGHTS..YOU ARE BY LAW BOUND BY YOUR PURCHASE LICENSE AGREEMENT. IF YOU HAVE A HARD DISK AND WANT TO PUT THE PROGRAM ON SUCH WHY SHOULD YOU BE TIED TO A FLOPPY. YOU HAD TO GIVE UP A LOT OF 'BIG MACS' TO GET YOUR HARD DISK. 1).
