ticalc.org Update
Posted by Ryan on 28 August 2014, 20:44 GMT

A quick update from the ticalc.org staff:

We appreciate everyone's patience as we've been hunting down the source of the site's lag issues. Resident cogitator Magnus "Mad Dog" Hagander appears to have managed to track down the primary source of the problem, blast it to bits, squash it to smithereens, and pummel it into pieces. Thanks, Magnus! If you are still experiencing issues, please let us know via e-mail or IRC.

P.S. -- If you've got a better nickname for Magnus than "Mad Dog", let's hear it.

SimCitx for the TI-Nspire!
Posted by Ryan on 16 August 2014, 23:10 GMT

SimCitxLet's take a look at the facts.

  1. People enjoy simulations
  2. People feel that they could do a "better job" if they were in charge
  3. Graphing calculators are the greatest invention of all time
  4. OF. ALL. TIME.

Where does that leave us? After weeks of arduous calculations, board meetings, and impromptu operas involving monkeys and tragedy, we've finally generated a solution to the gnarly algorithm that includes these facts. The result is clear: SimCitx for the TI-Nspire is a triumph.

Ask any person who grew up in simpler times, and you won't be able to shut them up about their fond memories of creating (and destroying) masterpieces in the prolific SimCity 2000. The fantastic Linkwebmaster has done a fine job in recreating this experience in Lua. You can see for yourself the detail and accessibility in this release with the great use of color, cursor use, and menu layout. It is definitely a "must have" for you calc -- so says the great algorithm!

Admirable work indeed from Linkwebmaster. If you have an Nspire, you need to get this game right now. Please, don't let the monkey opera tragedy be all for naught.

nQuake!
Posted by Ryan on 17 July 2014, 03:20 GMT

nQuakeLast November, a certain Ralf Willenbacher came out of the blue and wowed everyone with what ultimately became the ticalc.org TI-89 POTY. Delsgolf was an impressive feat that grabbed the attention of the community far and wide. Presumably causing the Great AAA Battery Shortage of 2013 that our children's children will still be talking about, Ralf went back to the drawing board to create yet another smashing project.

I'll be blunt: if you have a TI-Nspire, you should also have nQuake. Of course, we've already seen the standard hardware litmus test question answered, but Ralf has clearly decided to take it one step further with nQuake. While you shouldn't need anything else to offer a giant "great job!" congratulation to the author, he has also released the source code and a lot of additional details for compiling should you get the build bug yourself. Awesome work, Ralf, and keep it up!

Cemetech Contest #12 / Doors CSE 8.1
Posted by Ryan on 17 July 2014, 03:02 GMT

As you might expect, our incredible calcs are an integral part (get it? integral? eh?) of STEM fields and, more broadly, learning and education. Given this, we're thrilled to see Cemetech's most recent contest that deals with "educational shenanigans". There's still no word if skullduggery, hijinks, or tomfoolery qualify. There's still over 10 days 5 weeks left for the contest, so there's still plenty of time to create new ways to drop knowledge on students! More details can be found within the official announcement. This is a great opportunity to polish up on your own skills and to help others learn as well!

In related news, we've recently seen the official release of Doors CSE 8.1 after some thorough release candidate tests in the past month. Naturally, this calls for an 84+ CSE celebration dance in honor of calc superhero Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell!
