One Million for Patrick Davidson
Posted by Eric on 5 May 2002, 01:01 GMT

We're happy to announce that Patrick Davidson, #2 on our list of busiest authors, has passed the six-digit mark in total downloads. With 1,001,456 all-time downloads, Patrick is well in the lead as our most-downloaded author. Congratulations, and thanks for sucking up so much of our bandwidth :)!

wow how much bandwidth does the whole site transfer monthly?

what's cheap is that the number one on the busiest list has all basic progs whereas patrick d has all asm, though for each of his games there are multiple versions for different calcs so thats a little helpful.

i think this might be first post i never thought i;d get one

Sigh ... I was waiting for ticalc to make this a news item ... and lo and behold, I'm not home when they do. Oh well.

Congratulations, Patrick! Keep up your hard work ... I'm looking forward to more programs from you!

Dear Sir,
Thank you for the pointer. I am skilled in z80 assembly language
Operating Systems. The problem i am having is loading it onto the
calculator
and how to properly use the flash rom in the ti-83+ SE. I need to know how
to load the Operating system onto the calc and compile it into the ti base
code format. I need to know how to put the operating system onto page 0 of
hte flash rom. and i know how to code boot sectors and need to know how to
put the os onto the calc and the boot sector on the calc.

From the statistics, it looks to be roughly 18-20 GB or so.

It looks like they have been averaging around 150 gigabytes per month, or about 0.5 mbps, which might seem like a lot, but really isn't all that much.

Here's a suggestion.

Since some programmers tend to cheap their way onto the busiest authors list (I'm not saying that the #1 guy did, but the guy who programmed thousands of 83 "math" programs that just provided a shoddy front end for internal calc functions definitely was), why not have a couple extra categories. I realize it would be difficult to maintain something like one per calc, but their should at least be a separation between ASM and BASIC. Perhaps it would be good to also separate 68k from Z80. This wouldn't hurt legitimate programmers, and people who try to cheap their way on the list would at the very least have to make asm "pictures", or something else that takes a little more time than a 5 line basic program.

How about have a category where authors are ranked by the number of downloads divided by the number of files they have. So that programmers who release source code separately aren't "punished", files in the source code directories shouldn't be included in the calculation.
