Dimension-TI acquires domain name
Posted on 22 January 1999, 22:07 GMT

Dimension-TI has just acquired a domain name for its website. The new website, http://www.dimension-ti.org, has also moved from a Windows 98 server to a UNIX server. This continues the recent hot-trend of getting domain names and professional servers for websites devoted to TI graphing calculators.

The new domain name is too long. Dim-Ti would have been sufficient.

I don't really care tho. Just want to deprive some idiot of saying "first comment."

I agree that it's too long.. but think about it.. if you go up to a friend and say "go to dim-ti.org" then "dim" means absolutely nothing. Besides, Dimension-TI is the name of our site.

The name is kind of long, but usually people get URL's right just by guessing at the name of the company (i.e. www.micro soft.com, www.pepsi.com, etc.) Possibly the people can guess at the name coincidently by typing dimensions's url. (I did could not type dimensions' url because this message board won't allow 16 or more characters)

Yeah... I doubt many people know our name and will type it in randomly... but still, its the same idea. Possibly we should have registered a shorter name too, for convinience.

Yeah... I doubt anyone knows our name and will type it in randomly.. but the same idea. Possibly we should have gotten a shorter domain name in addition to the long on for convenience. And btw, ticalc.org, yet again you have prevented me from fitting something in your "15 character limit"... the URL isn't even displayed on the page now that you replaced it with "(Web Page)"... why do you have a 15 char limit for it?

The 15-character word limit was added because more than one wiseguy thought it was fun to post extremely long words to disturb the page layout on news article pages. If you're a third- or fourth-level reply, it's easy to post a long URL and cause the entire page to extend into the blue area. The same is true for the reasoning behind no longer displaying URLs and email addresses; we can't control the lengths but have to do whatever we can do make sure the layout holds.

I can say, however, that this restriction will be loosened up fairly soon. For now, put your URLs in the URL box instead of the text, and choose your words carefully. Blame your less courteous fellow visitors for the limitation...

Look very closly to the links on their main page. It's not a real domain name!! They just got a fake one. ticalc.org still rules!!!

Of course it's a real domain name. You think we stole it or something? It's just the dns server we use, does it like that. Sorry if it upsets you :P

Just don't sell out like TI-Files did.

what do you mean by sell out?

I have no idea either, but I do know that TI-Files' server is located at a university or something.

Yes, TI-Files is on a computer at Case Western... but what does that have to do with anything? By "Dont sell out like TI-Files" I believe he was refering to the desparate state TI-Files is in right now... they never update and the site is a mess... well that's just my opinion and the original poster's. We dont plan to make that happen on Dimension-TI.

I was reffering to the banners that ti-files.ORG has that are usually only found at .COM sites. I haven't really been paying attention to whether or not they've updated - I usually never visit there.

I figure this place is as good as any... I want to subscribe to the 86 asm newsletter. What's the difference between the normal list and the digest?

Re: Re: Ti stuff

the newsletter is sent individual from the person themselves. The digest is compile messages of that day.

So does that mean if I subscribe to both, I'd be getting duplicates?

Yeah... the Windows was only a temporary server while we were looking for a new one; now that we've found it the site is much more stable.

Get Linux...

(Web Page)

UNIX servers do rule .. however, you should put a version of Linux on it ..it's similar to UNIX, but slightly different.. a good version is at www.redhat.com .. and it's free for download; the price of a cd is very reasonable though. I use Linux and I love it!!

Yeah, but this is just a server. It's not on my own computer any more... when I get it for myself I'll get linux. I dont think it makes a difference for just a server. I dont have physical access to the server anyway.

Re: Get Linux...

Yah, I would have to agree, linux is pretty cool (I use RedHat 5.2). Anyway, it would be cooler if someone ported the 68k (for TI's 89, 92 and 92+) Emulator to it =).

Re: Get Linux... Why?
Justin Karneges
(Web Page)

Why get Linux when you have the real Unix? Linux is a freeware rewrite of the Unix OS. People who don't want to pay for Unix get Linux. Don't get me wrong though, Linux rocks. I'd much rather use Linux than go spend $1000 on a commercial Unix. But what I'm saying is, if you already have Unix, then there's really no need to get Linux since both are pretty much indentical.
