Abstract

Consider a computer calendar system which provides printer output in a traditional "time grid" format for a week. Refer to Fig. 1; this is typical of such a calendar page. There is little room to write contemporaneous notes on this page. Additionally, when this page's format is printed for a seven-day week, it takes three pages (Monday through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and Saturday and Sunday). If printed on both sides of the printed page, the odd number of pages causes the problem where the facing pages change from week to week when several weeks are consecutively printed. The current art normally prints a blank, or blank lined page as a separator between these consecutive weeks as necessary.

Week Note Pages

       Consider a computer calendar system which provides
printer output in a traditional "time grid" format for a week. Refer
to Fig. 1; this is typical of such a calendar page. There is little

and Sunday). If printed on both sides of the printed page, the odd
number of pages causes the problem where the facing pages change from
week to week when several weeks are consecutively printed.  The
current art normally prints a blank, or blank lined page as a
separator between these consecutive weeks as necessary.

      The proposed method provides a choice for the number and style
of the extra pages for the printed weeks.  Refer to Fig. 2.  This
screen is typical of a computer entry screen into which the
requesting user can type the choice for the number and style of the
extra pages.  The number of extra week pages is chosen by typing a
number (0-9 in this example, with "0" indicating no extra pages) in
the space provided.  The style of the extra pages is chosen by
selecting a top and bottom style from Note (lined), Quadrile (graph)
and three types of preprinted to-do item, phone call, or due date
pages, called, Todo, Call, and Due respectively, and by selecting the
percentage of the page to be used in the top style (the remainder of
