ticalc.org is physically based in Sweden. Since we have an international team of staff members that spans two continents and six time zones, we use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to determine everything.

So quiet, you! :)

I just think it's too bad that the 89 port of the numbar game didn't make a featured program. I mean, it _did_ brush Nick's teeth...

...and you ported it.

Sorry, but we can only feature one version of a program for only one calculator, because otherwise it floods the POTM voting with multiple entries.

The fact that Wacky Fun Random Number Generator was nominated is an insult. So many unbelievably good games have passed into the archives unnoticed, and then this game (which is horrible on its own and horrible in relation to other guessing games) comes along and is featured. Hmm...I wonder if the author had anything to do with it. This not only shows how horrible the current POTM system is, but it shows that Ticalc is not very (for lack of a better word) professional.

Kudos, Detached Solutions, you've got a great shell there.

What's even more horrible is that it will probably be the first BASIC game to win an award.

Nothing's that exciting around here anymore with Nick being gone.

Way to drum up conversation with yourself.

I'm posting a news item in less than a half-hour. Simmer down. :)

And if you read this before voting, be sure to join my campaign NOT to vote for mirage. Since it's the obvious shoe-in, how funny would it be to see it come in LAST? Especially for those who know Jason and Dulce. . .

I voted for Mirage and, of course, my own program. :)
Of course, this shouldn't be a hint to sway opinion either way (as that would suck quite hard: I mean that), but I really do think that you're just talking about spite in its most raw, undiluted form.

Spite towards people who have broken their backs to get this program out towards the public is just plain wrong, no matter how you slice it. Especially considering what REALLY BAD THINGS(TM) Dulce and Kovacs have gone through before its release...

i miss the good ol' days when there were more people makin programs for the 86.... it almost breaks my heart to see only one program there for my favorite calc....... *sob*
naturally, i voted for it. i didn't vote for any of the 89, 92, or 92 plus programs coz i didn't feel like it. and i'm sorry to Steve Noveck because i did vote for MirageOS. i didn't read this first. oh well....

i'm working on commander keen for the 86 right now so sometime soon, like within the next eon, you'll have that. i am very surprised that lemmingz won, however. i can't imagine taking up such a huge chunk of space for something that doesn't do much for the space it takes. maybe people just voted for it because of the name.. interestingly yas, much more useful, is way down the list. that's rather sad. oh well.

Perhaps it was just me, but I thought Lemmingz was quite a nice game. Tons of potential, and good enough to play while we wait for the final version.

You stole the words right out of my... well, keyboard. I own a TI-83 and while I love the idea of Mirage OS, I couldn't care less about the 86 or 89 games that came out.
