Miscellaneous Tidbits
Posted by Eric on 12 December 2000, 05:56 GMT

I thought I'd take the time to mention a few things that have been cluttering up my inbox as of late:

  • Alex Roper has released TSE Compiler v1.07. I couldn't find much documentation on this, but check it out if you're interested in a development program for Ion, MirageOS, TI-OS, and/or TSE for the TI-83/83+.
  • Fission2 Labs has released their third-generation RadioLinc. The new version works at 900Mhz, meaning that it can now easily penetrate through walls, teachers, and the like.
  • Jack Swindell sent in an interesting link from the Smithsonian Instutution with historical information about TI calculators. It's not new or anything, but here you can find interesting information about old and antiquated TI calculators and computers such as the TI-99/4.

Update (Nick): Yeah, we had some unexpected system downtime yesterday. We ran into some troubles running a command as root which led to ticalc.org's box not listening to any network traffic. (This is where the laugh track would go, if we had a laugh track.) Everything is back up now; it was a short outage that led to no long-term problems. Yay for everything. I'll go now.

Well, based on what I've heard so far, the radiolink link things are crap. But it's a damn good idea. Just think of it: you'd be able to play multiplayer games with someone in another class, get test answers from someone who's already taken the test, send people games without them even needing to come to you (I can picture that every school would have a "phantom game supplier" who no one would ever see but would give everyone else games), and, and...

All without being questioned by the teacher over what that cord is connecting your calc to your buddy's!

Why can't there be one that works?

(OK, I'm done...)
