Nick Disabato Marries TI-89
Posted by Michael on 27 September 2004, 05:14 GMT

In what has become a major media event, former ticalc.org news editor Nick Disabato has married his beloved TI-89 graphing calculator. The wedding was originally scheduled for October 16, but Nick decided to adjust the date after hearing of the recent lack of news on ticalc.org. "It was horrifying," he said, "and since 89-snookums and I were ready, we decided to take the plunge and help out ticalc.org as well!" Nick and Ms. 89 have been engaged since late July, several years after their original meeting in the electronics section of Target. Ever since the departure of his 86, Nick has been searching for a calculator that would, well...complete him in life. Now that he's found that special something, the entire ticalc.org staff wishes him the best of luck and that years of happiness may follow.

Due to the secrecy, only the couple's closest friends were invited. Magnus Hagander served as best man; Joey, Morgan, Jon, the Voyage 200, and others were also in attendance. From within the spacious lecture hall in the college math department, Nick proceeded down the wedding aisle with his bride-to-be rolling by his side in her motorized wheelchair. Shortly thereafter, they entered into the sacred bond of holy matrimony while astonished onlookers wept with uncontrollable emotions.

[Oh sweet calculator love] Details of the reception are carefully being guarded, but we were able to obtain a picture of their first kiss. Immediately following the wedding, the reception began - guests danced to Nick's own techno remixes. Joey was observed doing the funky chicken after having one too many glasses of non-alcoholic champagne. When interviewed, he commented, "Nick is such a great guy. I'm very happy for him." Nick only exclaimed something involving calculus theorems as he and Ms. 89 left the building. She would not talk to anyone, but only flashed the graph of r = 8sin(2*theta).

[mmm baby! Do you want to integrate? I'd love to be the area under your curves!] We should announce here that the TI-89 has now changed her last name in accordance with the usual custom, and will hereafter be known as Mrs. TI-Disabato. Nick and his wife are hoping for offspring within a few years. "We're hoping for ASM programs, but if we get BASIC, that's okay too," Nick commented before vanishing with his new wife into his bedroom. They are rumored to be engaging in rather passionate activities at this time.

I tried telling my calculator that it loved me.
It didn't seem to respond to positively (click "Web Page" link)

Hehe;
I'll probably patch up the 8XP and stick it on ticalc.org. Currently you can type and type and type and write over your all your RAM ;-) (Not good)

We weren't invited to the wedding? No fair.

So, where can I buy one of these TI-Disabato's anyway?

Erm, as I've said, the 89 only crashes when you don't know how to use it.

Don't be anti-89, unless you know what it can do and how to operate it.

The TI-89 Titanium crashes whether you know how to use it or not, at least for now.

My 89 hasn't crashed in many, many months. It doesn't spontanously crash like the 83 series. If you know what you're doing, the 89 doesn't crash very often, if at all.

That's because you keep trying to break the calc. Use it wisely, and it'll never crash. *hugs his ti-83+SE*

Mine hasn't either. I've found the TI-89 to be _very_ stable. Besides, if you're paranoid about crashes, then you can just archive everything.

Maybe perhaps he was actually referring to http://www.ticalc.org /archives/news/articles /11/113/113258.html ?
