Complete Guide to
for the
Computer Literate

Select your desired CPU and initiate your standard word
processing program to determine compatibility of this CPU
for interface.

(Helpful Hint: once CPU compatibility is established, you
may wish to determine a password which will initiate
immediate interface session signon. This avoids needless
future repetition of the word processing program).

Locate your CPU in a warm, comfortable location away from
drafts, dust, and unnecessary acoustical interference.
Place your CPU on a worksurface with sufficient support,
preferably at an ergonomically proper work height. It is
recommended that any surface on which you place your CPU be
covered with a static mat, or, if you choose to locate your
CPU on the floor, that the surface be protected by a carpet
with a static rating of 1.5KV or less.

Remove any software or peripherals from your mainframe and
that of your CPU (or at least remove software from the
lowercase mainframe) to expose the input/output devices. You
should fully monitor your CPU, preview its hardware and
locate input ports.

Decide upon the position in which your program session will
be executed: horizontal format or vertical format. (Note:
for horizontal format, determine which CPU will be in the
override position). At this time, it is helpful for both
CPUs to wrap tabs around the other to better accommodate

Center the output CPU mouse between the tabs surrounding the
parallel port of the input CPU and merge.

Repeatedly toggle your mouse between back-up and return. It
is advised to monitor your CPU display for any signs of
glare. It is also advised to maintain your baud rate at a
reasonable level to prevent breaks. If all hardware systems
continue to function properly, at some point you will
achieve macro, at which time input of data will occur.

Once data transmission is complete, remove your mouse and
log out of the interface session. You will now begin the
recover phase.

Remember: There's no on-line HELP function, so easy DOS it!

BACK-UP: reverse line feed, removal of the mouse from the
parallel port (also called REMOVE, BACKSPACE)

BAUD RATE: speed at which parallel interface occurs

maximum sensory overload; also when output CPUs input data
to input CPUs
