Nick Disabato Releases Random Numbar Generator
Posted by Nick on 19 July 2000, 21:19 GMT

Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00000069WORD! In another display of programming finesse that once again leaves the TI "community" in hushed awe, Nick Disabato has released Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00000069 for the TI-86.

Written in BASIC, this very well could be the absolute apex in random number guessing games for years - nay, eons to come. Though it's true that Nick borrowed the idea from Phil Genera, surely he borrowed the code from no source other than himself.

According to Steve Whittaker, file archiver at ticalc.org, "This could be the greatest game ever written. I've never had so much fun in my life. In fact, it's just slightly less entertaining than [censored]."

Added Steve, "This could, in some fashion, help a great deal to developing a new ROM image for the TI-89, as well."

Magnus Hagander, one of the creators of ZShell, was reported as saying, "That punk kid made something cooler than ZS!! I'll kill him!"

A ticker tape parade is planned down LaSalle Street in Chicago for Nick's contributions to humankind. Millions of tax dollars are being poured into the last-minute project.

Richard P. Feynman, professor at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY; was quoted as describing the program as "revolutionary to developing a unified field theory." Others have claimed it has caused them to learn Sanskrit.

Dude! How k-reet of Chicago's number one FUN! member. The best part is the inclusion of an "a" in the word Number in the title. The program looks better than ass in cake and I shall download it immediately. Thanks Nick!

Love,
Stuart Bergstrom

/me wonders if this news item qualifies "Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00000069" to be a Featured Program and up for a POTM choice...

That'd be funny if it beat out all other 86 and 89 programs for the month.

It probably will if it qualifies because vaporware is incredibly popular these days, whether its supposed to be hardware or software.

Hey, Richard Feynman is dead. There is no way he could have made this comment unless, of course, this program can be used to bring people back from the dead!!! Amazing!!!

I am not Richard Feynman. I am an anonymous, well, almost anonymous, amateur programmer for TI calculators, specifically the 83, 85, 86, and 89. I have no idea who this Richard Feynman guy is/was, but I am not him.

Richard P. Feynman was a physicist who worked a lot with quantum mechanics and also wrote the book _Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!_ This book should be required reading for everyone, because it's great! It disproves the misconception that people have that scientists must be boring people. Seriously, you _need_ this hilarious book. Get it from your local library today (or tomorrow, if your local library happens to be closed today).

Doh! I should have known that, as much as I've read about quantum mechanics and other theoretical physics. By the way, the Tau Neutrino is now proven to exist, joining its bretheren the Electron Neutrino and Muon Neutrino in proven physics. There was an article about it on /. last thursday.

Yes, but with a few tweaks, it could be made into a random neutrino generator!

But then they wouldn't be just neutrinos, they would be a collection of random neutrinos!

Actually, they would just be neutrinos, because they are next to impossible to detect and even harder to contain.

I'm sure RANDOM NUMBAR GENERATOR can detect and contain them.

I have extensively tested for this result, and the only way to contain neutrinos is within a black hole. But then they are useless, because not even the immense power of the Random Numbar Generator can compensate for the distortions of space and time inside the event horizon. Within the event horizon, all paths out lead back in. That black hole might have explained why my alarm clock didn't go off this morning....

Unless you can type at like 50 words a second, its all neuroware (vaporware still in the designer's head only).

It appears that some people _have_ read either "The Dilbert Principle" or "The Dilbert Future." I figured this would have the largest concentration of such people other than, of course, www.dilbert.com

As you may recall (qouted from the introduction of "The Dilbert Future"):
There are two types of people in the world: the bright and attractive people like yourself who read Dilbert books, and the 6 billion idiots who get in our way. Since we're outnumbered, it's a good idea not to refer to them as idiots to their faces. A devious Dilbert reader suggested calling them "In-duh-viduals" instead. The advantage to this word is that you can insult someone without risk of physical harm."

That explains why there are too many induhviduals in the world. I hope that I have not just ignited a flame war larger than any found on the Anarchy Trial. (asbestos at the ready)

Yes, but it would take the shock wave from a 50 megaton nuke to put out all the flames from 6 billion angry induhviduals.

Only 50 megatons? That's net very much ...

True, but the shockwave from bombs of less than a megaton travel at the speed of sound (constant regardless of power) and create immense vacuums behind them (strength varies directly with power). Nothing can burn in a vacuum.

Things may not be able to burn in a vacuum, but their existence can still be nullified by RANDOM NUMBAR GENERATOR in a vacuum (after all, RANDOM NUMBAR GENERATOR exists throught the universe, even in a so-called "vacuum").

WELL, i heard from my covert MIT contact that Nick's numbar generator was instrumental in calculating the process necessary to store both antimatter AND photons at room temperature in the space of 3 nickels. Anyways, my -81 likely NEVER would've came out of that quantum singularity without having randnumgen pre-installed.

...Bah! 440 comments and counting

60 megatons is the most powerful ever detonated (Soviet test in Siberia in 1953). Any blast/impact of power greater than 100 megatons would do enough damage that it would cause another catastrophic extension such as the one that killed the dinosaurs, among other plant and animal species, 65 million years ago, and the mass extinction 245 million years ago that killed off over 50 percent of all species at that time.
