Dark Times Ahead
Posted by Ryan on 24 October 2012, 18:51 GMT

The End of All That Is...As we approach Halloween, we trend towards a fascination with fun frights, the macabre, and grotesque horrors. While our preoccupation with the grim and ghastly can be attributed to fun and intrigue, there are some true horrors in the world that are bringing us ever-closer to a cataclysm. Such evils cannot be ignored.

It is in these troubled times that I must caution you of recent transpirings that endanger the ticalc community, nay, civilization itself to the greatest factor. Resident malcontent and evil genius Travis Evans has been toiling is his secret underground island lair (skull-shaped, of course!), cloaked in darkness, operating out of the reach of international monitoring and sanctions. He has released an update to his nefarious software, sneering in raspy, goetic utterances of the end-times. I am referring, of course, to his release of The Nikky Simulator v0.10.01. Teeming with sarcastic opprobria, this simulator is spreading like wildfire. Proving to soon go sentient, I implore you to avoid combining this software with other TI-89 sorcery, lest you trigger the apocolypse by inadvertently creating Sky-Nikky-net.

This is the best program ever created. This will be the program by which all other programs, ever, will be judged. Also, first person who ports this to a functional and non-annoying IRC bot gets to put that bot in #cemetech to replace the real nikky.

I'll take that challenge!

Oh wait, it has to be non-annoying? Never mind, I give up.

Bonus points if we run the IRC bot off of a TI-89?

Absolutely, as long as you use CALCnet or the TCP/IP stack that Ryan pointed at.

Welp, I went ahead and did it anyway. You can find nikky_ on #cemetech, #tcpa, and #flood on Efnet.

Nice try, but it's too late. You're all doomed, and this is just the beginning. You have no chance to survive make your time. Ha ha ha!

This is on my calculater and it's pretty fun. In fact I made a review of it already. It just has to be still approved.

Hope I'll still be able to remove it though... :P

I'll just leave this right here:

http://nykida.net/nikky-ipsum/

It's basically a wrapper for the CLI version that Travis released with 0.10.0. Refresh for new and exciting content!

That's...surreal. Mind posting up the (probably Perl) source somewhere?

I made a Nspire port :D
See the link for a screenshot.

Converted the C code to Lua, so other devices using Lua can benefit too (Prizm for example).
