        Just got on this sig.
        What advantage is 4DOS over NDOS in Norton Utilities 8?
        Is the 4DOS company still in existence?
        Can 4DOS be bought off the  shelf? Or only direct from the company?
        Does the registered version come with a manual?

Can't get EXCEPT to work ndos v7

This may be a real newbie question, but I am presently stumped
with this one.  Can’t get any clues from the manual file & tried
this on 286 & 486 PCs…

I am running Ndos ver 7.0, not sure what 4dos ver this equates to.

Except works from the command line as below:

     except (*.btm *.txt) copy *.* a:

BUT using the following line in a Btm file:
  EXCEPT (*.COM *.EXE *.OVL -LABEL.* {LM*.*) COPY A:*.* C:\~UPD /S

File not found "*.com"
File not found "*.exe"
     etc. also for the other exclusions

then it starts copying *.com, *.exe etc.

Any light thrown into this shady corner will be thankfully

Special offer


Yes for 150 $ you can possibly buy a nice young tight boys ass for
1.5 hours.                      
This is in a district close to Rotterdam in Holland

The boys are 10-12 years old.
They have not been used more than 1 month at the most, some are
untouched. Most of them from Pakistan but they aren’t 100% black, the
sperm only shows better on coloured skin anyway.
For 150 $ you can use one of the boys 1.5 hours, that might not be long,
but a 10 year old ass doesn’t hold forever. You can use their mouth and
asshole as much as the boys can take, the ones that already have been
rented out all managed 1-2 penetrations in both the mouth and asshole.
They are all instructed before first trip so they know how to suck,
swallow the sperm and lick the dick clean afterwards. The assholes are
well greased with Vaseline and stretched a bit just so they can take a
dick. They can also massage you with oil and lick you in your asshole.

Urin stuff is not allowed, neither is SM, you must not hurt the boys,
then action will be taken.
What you have to do is reply fast, because we can only use the same
address a day or two. On replying you will receive a phone number. There
you will be given a new phone number where you can arrange the meeting.
Money is paid when the boy is delivered. If the boy has been beaten or
hurt more then one can do with a dick you will be held responsible
because we promise the boys protection against rapists.
Only pure sexual use is allowed.

Meet local people with similar interests! (HmCHpX)

     Do you want to meet people in your area that are into the same things you
are?  Then try Direct Connect!  With Direct Connect, if you choose to, you can
receive calls in your home from interesting people in your area who want to
meet you, without the callers knowing your home phone number!  It’s safe and
convenient.  You can meet singles or couples, of all lifestyles.  And our
WILDSIDE menu has special categories such as Erotic Talk, Bi Curious,
Bondage/S&M, CD TV, and others.

     Here’s how it works.  You can call and either browse voice personal ads
by local area and category, or record your own ad. There are up to three ways
to connect with people that sound interesting to you.  1) You can leave a
message in their voice mailbox.  2) You can call their home phone number if
they leave it in their voice personal ad.  3) If they’ve activated the Direct
Connect feature, you can connect with them by simply pressing a button.  Our
computer will transfer your call to their home phone so you can chat live!  
Then they can give you their phone number if they choose to. You can set up
you own voice mailbox with or without direct connect by calling today.  It’s

       There are so many advantages to voice personal ads!  You get to hear
the person giving a description of themselves and what they’re interests are.  
Just hearing the sound of their voice tells you more about them then most
printed personal ads.

     You can meet exactly the type of person your looking for.  The computer
will ask you to enter certain information (area, sexual preference, age group
your interested in, ect…), and play only the ads that apply to you. This
makes your call quick and easy.

     All you have to do is call 1-900-407-7072  ext. 672. ($2.95/min. 18+).
You could be talking to your soul mate in minutes!  And for even more ad’s in
your area, without Direct Connect/Wildside features, you can also call  
1-900-835-5182 ext.9826. ($2.49/min 18+)

     If you record your own ad, you can choose from different options such as
Direct Connect.  If you activate the Direct Connect feature, you can restrict
your incoming calls to the times of day you choose.  Otherwise, callers can
leave a message in your voice mailbox.  It’s so easy!  Call now.  The only
thing you’ll regret is not doing it sooner!

—Write this # down   1-900-407-7072  ext. 672
24 hrs.($2.95/min. 18+)  Touch-tone only.

—Or for an even greater selection of ads in your area,
without Direct Connect/Wildside features, you can also call
1-900-835-5182 ext 9826. ($2.49/min 18+)

Note: Extension numbers are for tracking purposes.  You must enter the correct
extension number to gain access to the system.

Financial Aid

If you are reading this now, you, like me, are
badly in need of money. Believe me, I understand.
If the United States had debtor’s prison, I’d have
been in it years ago. However, there is a way out.
All you have to do is use the follow program.

Mail a single dollar bill to each of the following
people, along with a note which says:

"Please add me to your list. My name
and address is (include your name and address)."

(1)     Ralph
        7439 Hwy 70 S. #268
        Nashville, Tn. 37221

(2)     Bob Sullivan
        4553 Atascadero Dr.
        Santa Barbara, Ca. 93110

(3)     Bill Gray
        8114 SW 104th Way
        Gainesville, FL  32608

(4)     Y. Yuksel
        1561 Mesa Dr. #123
        Santa Ana, CA 92707

(5)     J. M. Little
        Clemson University
        P.O. Box 3669
        Clemson, SC  29632-3669

Then copy this message, and re-post it to as many
newsgroups as you can, but with the following changes:

Erase the first person’s address.
Move each of the remaining addresses up one number.
        (#2 becomes #1, #3 becomes #2, etc.)
Add your name and address as the fifth one.

What will happen is this. Others who, like you, are
in need of money, will read your message, just as
you are reading this one, and decide that they need
the extra cash. They will send you their one dollar
bill, and repost the message, making the same changes
you did. You will still be on the list as #4. Someone
will read their message, send money to everyone on the
list, including you, and post another message, making
the changes. You will still be on the list as #3. This
will continue until you are off the list, but by the time
you are off the list, AT LEAST five people will send you
money. There’s the five dollars you sent. I cannot
confirm them, but there are continuous statements about
how people have made hundreds, thousands, and even tens
of thousands of dollars with this plan. Remember, the
more places you put this, the more money you make.

Does this seem unreasonable? It shouldn’t. There are
millions of people in the United States just like you,
who need money, and are looking for a solution.
Thousands of people are getting on the internet for the
first time, every day, and each of them wants to make
money. Is it so unbelievable that they, like you, will
follow this plan, hoping for a big return? At most, it
will cost you ten dollars:  one dollar for each person,
and five for the pen, stamps, and envelopes.

Is it impossible for you to imagine there are ten people
somewhere in America who want to make money?

If there are, then you’ve only lost a little time. But
in fact, there are MILLIONS of people who NEED the money,
and they are looking for ANY chance to make some. You
will more than make up for any time or money you spend.

Is this program illegal? No. There’s nothing illegal, or
even shady, about this. Do you want proof?

1.  The inclusion of the message "Add my name to your
        list." makes this a service, just like any TV
        advertisement or 1-900 number. Are those illegal?

2.  Does the federal government police the internet? No.
        Do they open your mail? No. THAT would be illegal.

3.  If this were illegal, do you really think I’d be dumb
        enough to give the police my address?

Please, support this program. There is the potential for
both you and I to make a LOT of money together. Thank you.

Need 4DOS Information

Could someone please post a basic summary of everything 4DOS allows?
Say extended filenames, etc.  I’m curious about 4DOS, I used it many
years ago but have completely forgotten what it was like.  The one
thing I’m really curious about: I remember 4DOS using extended
filenames.. can this occur (the displaying of long filenames) only
while in a 4DOS shell or can other applications, say for example,
Network Disk Manager for Windows 3.11 also read the long filenames?
Any information about the above and anything else 4DOS is capable of
would be greatly appeciated.  If you could email your responses, that
would be even better :)  Tim Williams – twilli…

Thank You!

fancy dir listing gone bad

What’s up with this batch file?  It *used* to work with 4DOS 4.x.  
Now, it pukes and I’m at a loss as to why… Of course, with Win95 its
not perfect any more since long filenames can get in the way, but
it’d be too slow to check filename length along with counting the
number of files, wouldn’t it?

@echo off
dir /ku/a %& >&>nul | set _files=%@substr["%@line[con,0]",23,9]
set _files=%@eval[%@substr["%_files",1,%@index["%_files", ]]]
iff %_files LE %@eval[%_rows-4] then
        dir /h/o/j %&
elseiff %_files LE %@eval[%_rows*2-8] then
        dir /h/o/2/j/v %&
elseiff %_files LE %@eval[%_rows*4-16] then
        dir /h/o/4/j/v %&
elseiff %_files LE %@eval[%_rows*5-20] then
        dir /h/o/w/j/v %&
        dir /h/oe/w/j/v/p %&

Equipartitioning the Harddisk

Could someone tell me how the hell you would use dos to equipartion your
hard disk.  Just say for example you wanted your hard disk in such a way
that you have both a C:\ and D:\ drive sharing equal amounts of storage
space, what command(s) would you use.  Also if you did manage to
equipartion it, what commands would you use to convert it back to just a
C:\ drive.

Try @fileseekl[%_handle,%_rand] or more directly,
without th _rand variable use @line[c:\file.txt,0]

Its all under the functions | files section of 4help.
