I am surprised Prosit did not make the list, I am sure I would have nominated Prosit, had the damn script put it up when I voted. Would someone please put Prosit on the list? Wait, damn, I already voted. Still, put it in.



PROSIT RULES!!!!!!!!!

Didn't Prosit win last month? :)

While this is a wonderful observation, and a correct one, I think Prosit should win every month until someone comes up with a program that would replace the TI-OS in the 89 (which would be nowhere near soon, unless you can break RSA encryption), or Street Fighter II TI comes out with better AI....

While the latest version of SF2 "afc" (whatever afc stands for) has had more than its share of crashes, I can attest to the weakness of the AI in SF2T v0.18.

I want to disagree with your opinion (that Prosit should win every month until...), but is there much else new? no...

And what the heck is up with three news items in one day? School's started for me this week and I didn't have time to drop by. Then on Wednesday night (I'm in PDT, so shup :P) I log in, and I see three news items: new 82/83 games/ports, a new site, and announcement of Kirk's CrASM. (BTW--remember, Kirk never retires. :) )

Anyway, I have to work on some shitty HOMEWORK (argh, grr, f***, those expletives), so ttfn.

There are so few nominations for POTM that I suspect ticalc.org members are no being able to test the posted programs.
I have a TI89, but I test programs with vti89.exe under Virtual PC (emulating the TI89 in an emulated PC in an iMac). I was able to test many ASM programs but few BASIC programs due to "Transmission Error." Down with file corruption! ...some file quality should be pursued. :)

AFAIK, all the programs submitted and approved were on the list of nominations. This list is NOT the nomination list, this list contains the top three nominations that were voted on.

As far as not being able to test the programs, you are absolutely right.

Hey Bryan, what does AFAIK mean?

AFAIK means "as far as I know". And as far as not being able to test programs, you are in no place to judge. We know what is happening in our staff and what is going on. You do not.

Sorry,

I didn't mean the staff when I wrote "ticalc.org members."

I really meant:

"ticalc.org members" = everyone who has an account on ticalc.org, like me. And I have had MANY "transmission error" messages, so I can't test most of TI89 programs.

I was not angry at you, I was talking to Bryan. We understand of course that not everyone tests all of the programs, which is why we say please vote for those you have tested. And restricting by the calculators they list in their profile is not an option, because then some idiot would just select everything and vote for everything.

Roberto, try changing your batteries. If they are low than transmitting files to the 89 is... difficult at best. :) I'm not sure why this is the case seeing that the 85/86 could transfer files if the only power they had was from a hamster running on a turbine but alas, you need to change the batteries and it'll work.

I don't think it's much of a surprise that Nibbles was nominated for TI89 game, it was the only choice available for a few hours, due to a bug.

But the staff said they would take that into account and adjust the results accordinly...

It was taken into account. Prosit has already won an award and is not eligible to win any more awards. Nibbles did not receive very many extra votes, based upon the time that they were submitted.

Prosit is eligible for the next POTM vote (September), because it's newest release is from September, not August

I (think) what Andy meant was, that even if it had not won, the latest version was in September and thus it was no longer eligible. I think we plan, at least at this time, that programs can only win POTM once.

Lets say, hypothetically. that Niklas made a really radical change on Prosit next month. Suppose it was earth shattering and completely new. Would it be eligible to win the POTM again? If not, I will be seriously disappointed.

No. However, he would get his screenshot which he displays updated if he wanted, and if there was a major change like that, it would be news. POTM is supposed to recognize the new programs...
