Polarhome ALPHA Graffiti Wall!

Postby papa » Mon Feb 20, 2017 12:03 pm

ATTENTION OpenVMS/ALPHA USERS:

Presenting a new way to have fun on Polarhome: the Polarhome ALPHA Graffiti Wall!

The Graffiti Wall is a communication/socialization/entertainment tool for Polarhome users (Graffiti Wall access is currently exclusive to users with log-ins on OpenVMS/ALPHA). Record messages, doodle ASCII art, spoof insults for the enlightenment, pleasure, or disparragement of your fellow Polarbears.

The system is anonymous, so sign "graffito" for which you are willing to accept the blame. :wink:

Hope to see your mark on the wall.

GRFFTI

The GRFFTI command procedure provides access to the Polarhome ALPHA
Graffii Wall for communication, socialization, and entertainment.

o Print all contents from the Graffiti Wall (GRFFTI ALL)

o Print new content from the Graffiti Wall (GRFFTI NEW)

o Post new graffito on the Graffiti Wall (GRFFTI [WRITE])

o Print this help text (GRFFTI HELP)

SET-UP

To use the GRFFTI command procedure, and check for new graffito at each
log-in, users should add the following lines to their LOGIN.COM file:

$ grffti :== @dka200:[home.p.papa.share.grffti]grffti
$ grffti new

Hi all,
I tried entering a short message on the Graffiti Wall, but when I hit Enter to start a new line
it closed on me.
Is there a more comprehensive Help anywhere?

Thanks Papa!

Welcome back, Mike!

Sorry, but the graffiti wall only support single-line input. But you can call GRFFTI multiple times to post a multi-line message as long as no one posts while you're writing.
