System Downtime
Posted by Magnus on 25 May 1999, 08:41 GMT

Last night at approximately 01:15 CEST (23:15 GMT), the ticalc.org server crashed for reasons unknown - either OS crash or temporary hardware failure. It is now back up again, since around 08:15 CEST (06:15 GMT), and no data has, to our knowledge, been lost.

We apologize for inconveniences that this may have caused.

except for the upgrade, i can't remember a time when ticalc.org has gone down (due to them). that's pretty impressive considering that this is really just a low end pc.

i'd say congradulations are in order.

200 MMX is a low end PC?... I don't think so. But i think the 486DX 4 seemed to be more stable...

the low-end controversy

i believe that low end has come to mean anything less than 233mhz. of course, this is open to debate, unlike the mac term low-end meaning anything less than an 040.

Hehe, at least you guys don't have to worry about people turning your server off :)

Hehehe...and it's practically a built-in security system, too.

"Oh, nuts! There's no power switch!"
"Quick! Jam something in the slot! Maybe we can turn it off that way!"
"But what do we use?"
"Here, try this fork!"

Well, that's all very nice, but the site's up again now, and I'm sure we're all happy... isn't it time for some real news? Half of the stuff here is about the site, or upgrades, etc. And that's good and all but I haven't seen any games coming out for a while and i think that's what most of us are looking for now... anyone else feel this way?

I haven't seen anything on here about new assembly programs in a while (besides Street Fighter II)

Also, can anyone point me to a good resource for M68K assembly for Fargo on the TI-92?

Well, I have just released yesterday a game called Bigdyna, running on TI92 and TI89. I guess there should be a new posted soon...

Cool, but where'd you learn asm, they don't exactly teach it in my high school (they try to teach C++, but don't do a good job, luckily I had already taught it to myself, as for the rest of the people in the class...). Does any one know of any resources on the web for it?

As many peoples, I learned 68K assembly by reading the file "68kguide.txt" by Jimmy Mardell. Look at the Don Barnes post for the corresponding url (a few posts below).

Check out the link above. 68kguide.txt is a particularly useful reference.

This might not be anything but your link software doesn't download.
