Hey, this is a great instructable and is very informative. Just one thing is missing... pictures! It really helps a lot when trying to follow directions so you should consider taking some photographs. Once you do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks! Thanks for the cool instructable and we hope to publish this soon!
This is good but why change * with (8) and (2) for @ The command can easily handle echo-ing these digits without a change<br><br>eg: msg * to type a message simply type msg *<br>and to echo @ we just echo @<br>no need for the changes but otherwise cool <br>happy coding
i kinow this is a late reply but i was offline for a while forgot about the site and moved to bigger things, but i figured i would do that to make it more clear to the person who is using it to learn, if you dont need it thats fine but i wanted to be clear and precise
