ti-cas.org Shutting Down
Posted by Eric on 19 February 2002, 22:28 GMT

This is a bit of old news, but I think it's worth mentioning that ti-cas.org, headed by Olivier Miclo, is shutting down due to conflicts with the French division of Texas Instruments. Read the page for a brief history and Olivier's thoughts on the issue. Sorry to see it go...

When I said "sounds neat" I meant the time, not the news item. A site that is shutting down isn't good.

Which site? Good thing it is shutting down, if it isn't a good site.

well, uhm, yes, but not that we see 'a' like 'q' or something, the only problems that could happen is when you forget to install the correct keyboard driver, so when you type something (ex: the windows login screen) that Windows uses the default qwerty keyboard layout, and that some keys are mixed up. But only when you type, not on websites or something :-)

How about irc? Does ticalc.org have an irc channel?

And another thing: does anyone else think that ticalc.org should have a meta-forum (like /.) where we can discuss the site itself and not any specific piece of news?

It used to have an IRC channel but it's now filled with a bunch of trolls and lamers.

And yes, there should be some kind of forum system alternate to ticalc, but they are probably too lazy to add one.

They used to have one. It was #ti on efnet. But now the ops hate anyone speaking of ti calculators. Any ticalc.org being the lazy bastards they are, have kept their irc page up on this web site. Now anyone thinking they are joining ticalc.org's channel, gets a kick ban. Yeah I'm sure those people think highly of ticalc.org after that.
The TCPA has a irc channel on efnet, #tcpa i believe it is the most frequented ti calculator channel.

Hey, I noted that some things were offtopic, I didn't note that there was anything wrong with it. :-) Thus I'm not a hypocrite.

All this offtopic chatter points to the fact that ticalc.org _needs_ a forum or discussion area where users can freely discuss topics of interest to them. This needs to be separate from the news discussions.

Most other countries do dates in DD.MM.YY format. Note the decimals used instead of slashes. I find it to be easier to understand. America measures everything differently from other countries, and most of our unit conversions seem to be completely arbitrary. 12 inches in a foot. 5280 feet in a mile. 360 degrees in a circle. It makes no sense.

I think both are used all over the world. For instance, aircraft headings are in degrees clockwise from North.

But then again, English is the international language of aviation, and, last time I checked, most of the world doesn't speak English.

Degrees are used all over the world, hence earth coordinates are in degrees. Why they chose 360 is a matter of making life easier. 360 has a lot of denominators, so you wouldn't always have to calculate with fractions.

About the other measure, they're indeed quite bizar, but they still exist because used in daily life. Scientists normally use the SI unit system and thus the metric system.

It is a bit close to the swedish way, YYMMDD. (wich actually also is covered by the ISO 8601 standard)
in 1998 I started to write all my dates in the ISO standard though, to be Y2K-safe :)

well...... any sane person who realizes that you don't write '0''s before other numbers if there's nothing before the '0' would write the 22nd of febuary, 2/22/2...or 22/2/2.....or 2222...... this is better than the '1' incident with 9/11

Hello!

For those which do not know me, you must know that Ti-cas is the only site to propose a

teaching support.
This site is very important, because contrary to U.S., in France, the mathematical level is

much more important.
For example, to become professor of mathematics in the large schools, one needs as many time than to become doctor.

In France, the integrated CAS and the CALCTOOLS application are not sufficients, and sites

like Ti-cas are thus important.
Since 1995, I bring ideas and councils.
I take part in congresses for TI-France, and am the editor of a review for the students.
Ti-cas is sponsored by TI-France.

I decided to close the site, because Texas Instruments reproaches me for having disseminated

confidential information concerning the TI-V200.
I am not at the origin of this diffusion.

So that all the visitors understand quickly, here a short history on information which you

found on TI V200:
- Texas Instruments carried out a considerable error while letting appear a code name on a

page of the official site: Sylvester.
- I had immediately contacted TI-France and TI-Dallas, which a few days later had withdrawn

this mention.
- This code name was thus known by certain visitors, and circulated on forums of discussions

and sites of students.
- At the time of the official advertisement of this future calculator, some sites

disseminated confidential information, like the name of the next operating system (v2.06)

and other rather precise details.
- to defend the interests of Texas Instruments, I had taken the initiative to warn these

sites.
- One week later, this information being unfortunately largely spread, I decided to make

them public.
- Error, since it is that which one reproaches me.

I'm worn, tired, of having to beat me with commercial which cannot evaluate with its right value what I bring since so many years.
I also do not understand really why these things (which do not have serious impacts) become such extensive.
Most important for Texas Instruments would be to maintain a privileged contact with characters like me, rather than to tire them.

Many visitors also point out to me that TI-France disseminates distort informations (page1: " TI-93 Plus", page2 : not brought up to date infos since 2 years, page3: false memory size ... ... ... ...)

page1 : www.ti.com/calc/france/france.htm
page2 : www.ti.com/calc/france/89appsf.htm
page3 : www.ti.com/calc/france/89f.htm


I would be happy to receive messages of support.
These messages are sent to TI.

It really is too bad the site is shutting down, it was a great resource.
