It is once again time for the Program of the Month Results for last month and voting for this month. You can view the March POTM Results. When you are done with that please visit the April 2000 POTM voting page.

Looks like TI-Chess blew everyone away...

April's selection doesn't seem too fair for the z80 calcs; too many damn good 89/92+ programs :)

There would have been more programs in other categories besides the 89, if they would have bothered to put them in. There was way more than 2 82,83,83+ programs released last month. Knights Of Time v1.1 and TSE were both featured programs for April. And TxtView v1.52 was in a news post, but surprisingly, they are not in the voting list.
There truely were not many releases for the 85/86 last month so I have no complains about that section. :)

You guys should stop complaining because the TI-89 and TI-92+ are getting so much attention! If you are so worried, you should go and get one. I should know, I have a TI-89 and a TI-86.

You should know what???

Well anyways, I wasn't complaining about the attention that 89/92 calcs are getting. Reno said that there was "too many damn good 89/92+ programs" so I was pointing out that a few other good 83 programs were released last month, had publicity and yet still were not put into the list to vote on.

If I truely wanted a 89, I would get one, but seeing as that I haven't even used my 83 since I graduated a few years ago, I think it would be a waste of resources otherwise spent on something worthwhile.

Regardless of what is released, the stuff for the 68k calcs always wins.

They really should have 2 seperate groups. Z80 and 86k. Then you pick 1 or 2 out of each group at there discrepency, depending on how many are entered.

Another solution (and probably the best) would be to just pick one for each calc. This gives a better portrayal of which programs are good for which calc.

TI-Chess definately deserved that - it's an amazing program. If only I could figure out how to get loading/saving to work right, get castling to work (switch king/rook - what's the key combo?), and learn to beat the computer on the lowest dificulty more than 1 in 100 games - even WITH cheating. . . pr0ps to Thomas and the TI-Chess team

There isn't a "key combo." Simply select the king and move it into its position (c1 or g1) and TI-Chess automatically knows that you want to castle and moves the rook to its position (d1 or f1, respectively).

I think fact maxmem might be the only utility to win the POTM. I mean, any program that gives me 200 K more of archive is something that I like.

then again, what good is archive space if you don't use it for anything :)

Ever.

Probably another example of *normal* women being more logical and intelligent than *real* men...

People are always complaining about how the categories are all lumped together. I personally think that this is unavoidable with the number of possible selections, as many categories barely have any programs. One possible idea might be to increase the selections for the vote or to even make make the vote every other month. Although, when you think about it, most of the programs that make it to the vote are already some of the month's best, so it seems that it is a little redundant to have a vote on those very few every month...

Thanx to everyone who have voted for TI-Chess as POTM. My motivation to keep on with that project "makes a high leap" =8-)

Come on! Put back the old one! There is no point in voting! Now it's just a 89/92 voting, no other calculators have more than 2 programs to vote for!

It was nice to see a BASIC program on the list. Especially a TI-83 one at that. Way to go, SiCoDe.
