Postscript and how-to text on making stickers to put on COCOTs





Date: Fri, 28 Sep 90 09:58:40 PDT
From: dplatt@coherent.com
Subject: COCOT-in-Violation Label File
Organization: Coherent Thought Inc., Palo Alto CA


Here's the current version of my COCOT-in-violation label file.  It
was originally created on a Macintosh, using HyperCard and the "Print
reports" command.  I then ran it through Glenn Reid's "Distillery"
program, to remove all of the Macintosh-specific PostScript constructs
and convert it into standard PostScript.  The positioning and spacing
of the labels have been hand-tuned a bit.

The resulting PostScript program should be compatible with any Adobe
PostScript printer that can print on U.S. letter-sized paper.  It'll
produce a single page of output, which can be copied onto label stock
(10 labels per page ... Avery 5352 or equivalent).

You may wish to edit the text of the labels ... in particular, if you're
located outside of California, you may want to change the phrase
"California PUC" to something else ("FCC", perhaps)?

Happy stickering, all!

Subject: COCOT-in-Violation Label File - Comments and Help 


Dave,

Thanks for the "violation stickers". I have successfully printed it on
our Sun 3, using SunOS 3.5 and Transcript. However, this did require
some farbling, which may be required for other Transcript users, so I
am CC'ing the Digest...

If you are using SunOS and Transcript to print the labels, you may
encounter a situation where the file is spooled, but vanishes from the
queue without ever being printed. If this happens, there are two
things to try:

	1. Edit the COCOT-labels.ps file and change the postscript
	   version from 2.1 to 1.0, e.g the line should look like this:

%!PS-Adobe-1.0 debug version ((V 1.0d release 11 edit 4))

	2. If that doesn't solve the problem, then just cat the file
	   to the serial line where the lazer printer is installed.
	   I used "cat COCOT-labels.ps > /dev/lw", your printer name
	   may vary. Look in the /etc/printcap file and find the
	   printer description for your lazer printer. There will be a
	   string "lp=", whatever follows the "=" is your printer. If
	   there is no "lp=", but there is a "rm=", then the name
	   follwing the "rm=" is the host on your network where the
	   printer is attached. Rlogin and do the "cat" there.

Good Luck and happy stickering!

[Moderator's Note: 'COCOT-labels.ps' is the file I got after I first
did 'uudecode' against what Dave sent me, then uncompressed that file,
of the same name with 'z' on the end. If Dave can't help you with
this, then Mr. Perrine might be willing to help. 

Remember, there is no law against marking any mechanical,
coin-operated device out of order if in fact it is malfunctioning; and
it is courteous and thoughtful to do so, preventing the next person
from possibly losing their money in the device. Your 'out of order'
label should cover the coin slot, making the deposit of money
impossible without first reading the warning notice. The use of very
sticky labels will prevent vandals from ripping down your notice prior
to the owner of the phone having a chance to fix it so it complies
with federal requirements, the law in your state and hopefully, common
courtesy as well.  PAT]

CCMI stands for Center for Communications Management, Inc.  They are a
publisher, and were acquired by McGraw Hill a few years ago.  They are
in the business of maintaining an up-to-date database of all telephony
tariffs, throughout the country.  They publish them on paper, on
diskette, and probably in other ways, including a dial-in on-line
service.

The last time I looked, however, their service is not free.  You pay
for their services.  Their telephone number is (201) 825 3311.
