Super Duper Pi Day Bonanza!
Posted by Ryan on 14 March 2015, 14:43 GMT

Great day in the morning! It's another fantastic Pi Day!

However, today is no ordinary Pi Day, no sir. As we mentioned last year, today is a very special Pi Day. Rather than our usual 2-decimal celebration of 3.14, this year we have the special opportunity to celebrate even more digits! If you're in one of those magical countries that operates on a 12-hour clock, you can even celebrate the special time of 9:26:53 twice today, bringing us out to 3.141592653! I can hardly stand it! In fact, if you're one of those people who really wants some serious precision, you can technically enjoy pi out to as many digits as you find useful.

Happy Pi Day to you all, and stay tuned for more ticalc.org goodness to come soon!

Slova for the 83/84+
Posted by Ryan on 16 January 2015, 20:45 GMT

There has been much to-do in recent decades regarding the issue of whether learning a second language affords certain mental advantages. While the findings regarding when a person learns a second language are still being worked out, and the results are still out on all of the specifics, there is good evidence to suggest that speaking two languages is associated with benefits in different domains, regardless of media hype and potential publication biases.

All of that aside, there are many, many places these days to help you learn a second language. And why not? Learning new languages opens the door to new works of art, cultures, and ideas. And you know us -- we're all about being worldly. We also know that learning a new language can, at times, be frustrating. What if the process could be, oh I don't know, turned into a game? Sure, people have tried. But, you know, most attempts have just been missing something. Something crucial. Something... involving calculators, perhaps.

Yes, that's it! Thanks to all-around smart person and calculator crackerjack Rickie "Hot_Dog" Malgren, your calculator can be a bastion of bilingual betterment. Slova is a side-scrolling platformer with language learning set as its central purpose. Run, jump, and nuke your way to lexical ecstasy as you pair up words with their second language equivalents, all the while dodging the baddies and avoiding injury. If your New Year's Resolution was to pick up a second language, you'll be pleased to know that Rickie has really gone all out with this release. There's exhaustive documentation, source code, plenty of examples, and a few different language packs included for your enjoyment. Want to help others learn a new language? Why, you can even create your own language pack! While you're at it, someone should go ahead and get a French pack completed. For you non-francophones out there, no more Google translations when browsing TI-Planet!

Thanks to Rickie for a fantastic release in the edutaining world of calcs. What a great way to start the new year!

TI-84+CSE POTY Tied
Posted by Ryan on 31 December 2014, 07:33 GMT

Woah-ho-HO! Hey there, calc fans! It has been many-a-year since the old and dusty calc mages of ticalc.org have seen the likes of a tie in a POTY contest, but here we are! In the tradition of the infamous Michael Vincent, we will be holding the 2014 Terrific ticalc.org Tiebreaker poll! This year, we have received an equal number of POTY votes in the 84+ CSE category for Ander D'nar's outstanding patience games and Kerm's kickin' Jezzball game. The thrills! The chills! I can hardly hold in the excitement! To refresh your memory, here are the two candidates for the current tie-breaking session:

This run-off tie-breaking bonanza will be running for one week, and the poll is located on the right-hand side of the home page. Call your friends, family, and neighbor's pets and make sure that they show up to vote! Uncle Ryan wants YOU to vote and help settle the score for the 84+ CSE POTY!
