New Years Status Update
Posted by Magnus on 1 January 2003, 12:33 GMT

As the new year should start on the last parts of the globe in about 30 minutes, it's about time for a quick status update.

  • Hiring of news editor
    We're working on it :-) Down to a few candidates now, but we're currently waiting for a couple of our staff members to return from holidays before we make the final choice. Expect the result in the beginning of january.
  • Filearchive updates
    Yes, both our filearchivers are unavailable at the moment - out of town or very busy with studies. We expect this to be solved mid-january. Hopefully we can get some sporadic updates through before that.
  • accounts/webmaster mail
    Yes, we've neglected those. Basically, there have been issues as far back as end of september that has gone unanswered. We'll try to fix this now. But in order to avoid double-work, if you have an open issue, please resend it if you haven't received a response. And make sure you send to the correct address - see Contact Us for a list.
  • help@ticalc.org mail
    We currently do not have the resources to answer mail to this address. Please use our mailinglists instead. Or TI support if it is an issue with builtin functions in the calculator.
  • Site hosting
    We still don't accept new site hostings.

This is great! I'm so glad my favorite website is doing great! I'm hoping that the archiver people get done with their studies and whatever soon because there's proably a LOT of files that need to be uploaded.

Does anyone know how to RLE compress a bitmap in Visual Basic? (Silly question, but I would like to know). That is, convert a black and white 96*64 bitmap into .db statements under RLE compression. I would greatly appreciate any help! It is for my funky TiVid video format and would like to get the tightest compression possible.

I dunno, but in answer to his question: calcsoft broke up and now it's split into ccoderz.org and calcsoft.tk It just... happened. So, I'm in ccoderz and Polar is in calcsoft, if you were wondering, I thought it was kinda strange, how it just happened all of the sudden

Then where am I? I 'was' a member of calcsoft... Damn, leave the net for three weeks and it all goes to pot.

No, I haven't posted in a while due to the fact that there was noting to post on (as ticalc.org went down) and have been at home on holiday without an internet connection for the last three/four weeks. But hey, I'm back.

Hey, I just got this from calcnews.net...

TICalc.org Leaving the Web

Guest writes "I asked Magnus of ticalc.org a few questions, in private, and was told that ticalc was going to be leaving the internet.
"It costs too much" was given as the main reason. Then he would not talk anymore, but said the closing would happen "within a month."

Is it true? We will wait and see..."

So, Magnus, is it true? I mean, it sounds fake, but is it? I assume so, but rumors have been flying, please, set everything straight for the record.

I would like everyone to know that if they look in the comments associated with the "Ticalc.org is hiring" news update, they will see that I was the first one to post a new comment for the new year at exactly January 1, 00:00 GMT. The comment is toward the end...I think on page 7.

Hm.

Here's a summary of the past two and a half years of my life. Studied, got girlfriend, went nuts and spent an unbroken 96 hour period in Northwestern's library, dumped girlfriend, studied, started DJing, studied less, got girlfriend, didn't study as much, got bad grades, got cheated on by girlfriend, got dumped by girlfriend, found out about the cheating, went nuts, switched majors to Applied Math (minor's still English), studied, got a show on WNUR-FM (and you should listen, confound it!), got another girlfriend, got promoted to producer of the electronica program on said WNUR-FM, began writing a story. Now I'm going back on Sunday to study some more; preferably more than how much I studied when i had the previous girlfriend.

Things are weird here. We have a nice math department because the building is cool looking and old. I use this as a shaky justification for the $36,000 per year I spend to come here.

On the first day of school I told my dorm (science and engineering themed) that I worked at ticalc.org, and there was this hush of awe. That was kind of weird. It hasn't come up much since. This is good because it doesn't really matter, and I don't think my frequently posting news with Kaufmann-style charisma is any valid reason to idolize me either.

How are you doing, Joe? :)

Getting a bad grade is not the end of the world. I just failed a Spanish class, for goodness' sake. Of course, maybe if I had shown up for more than 8 or 9 of the 45 classes, I would have passed, but let's not dwell on the details ;-)

Yeah. The criteria are:
You must have all grades 93% or above (I had a 92%)
Your overall average must be 95% or above (I had 96.75% or something)

That is undoubtably true. Most people get B's as the school difficulty progresses, and peer pressure mounts. By the time she is a senior in high school, she will have probably gotten lower than an A at some point.

we are talking about GPA's. 4.0 is an A, 3.5 is a B+, 3 is a B, 2.5 is c+, 2 is c, 1.5 is D+, 1 is d, 0 is f.
You don't use GPA's over there? hmm, just use the normal percent stuff only? Oh yea, this is only used on the end of the nine weeks stuff, not on day to day grades. You can get a 5.0 in a class too though, if you are in an honors class, you get an extra point on that classes GPA, unless you fail...

Whoah! Your exams must be easier/marked higher than they are over here in the UK- 80% is roughly all you need to get an A*! (And it is not that we're stupid - I'm at one of the top schools in the country and only a handful of people get A* across the board at GCSE level). I only got 4 A*s and 3 As (with 2 Bs and 1 C). Had they been marked on your scale I would have got - what - all Bs, Cs, Ds and Es?

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: ...

Personally, I think that the reason that the UK is marked differently than the US is perhaps the examinations in the UK are harder than they are here, and the UK grading scale may have been intended to curve the score or to maybe give students a break.

Okay...
The 'file' register (or 'f') can be used for several things.
'f' in itself is a register, so you can store 8 bits to it (like the 'w' accumulator).
However, it is more commonly used to reference pseudo-registers which cannot be used for stuff like maths and other operations (they are things like the option registers or the GPIO register that controls the IO pins). To move a register (such as the status of the IO pins) into the 'w' register, one would say:
movfw GPIO,0
(The syntax is "movfw f,d" where 'f' is the register you are referencing and 'd' is where you want to stick the result: if d=0 it puts it in 'w' and if d=1 it puts it in 'f'.)

However, in a slash site, you can set your preferences to show all comments and disregard scores.

Mmm, well, if you ask me, I didn't like the book much. It dragged too much. But, the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jorden are awsome! Better than the best movie ever! The 10th one just came out!

Why have they chopped so much off the second book to stick it in the third film? That annoyed me, but still good film.

The only problem that I find in long movies without intermissions is that I have to see it twice because I can't hold it in (you know) through the entire movie, so I have to go part way through at a different time the next time I see it to see what I missed the last time.

Jabber is an instant message client, but it isn't run by a corporate giant such as AOL or M$. I like it, but there aren't any decent Windows clients (in my opinion).

OMG, today in class, this kid with a palm pilot, he turned the TV on the the middle of study hall! The teacher thought it was me for a while! It was so hilarious! Then we had this huge presentation that the whole school went to with these people from the Marines and it was this big projection thing, and I dared him to shut off the projection with his palm pilot... OMG, and guess what happened?

LOL there was a teacher there and when I was looking bored, she asked me if I'd rather be in 12th period doingn work. Since 12th period is a study hall, and I'd get to play on my calc (no homework) then, that obviously would be my choice, so I said, "Sure, I'd much rather do that" and she goes "Okay, I'll see you after school on Monday [for a detention]" I thought that was kind of dumb, but she forgot, so... I guess I'm free ;)

Colour!
benryves  Account Info
(Web Page)

I once worked on colour - a device plugged into the link port and shone onto the screen three different lights - red, blue and green, in sequence with three images that would flicker past on the display. For example, to get a red circle you would have a picture of a black background with a white circle in place when the red light was on but hid it when the green and blue light came on... it didn't work in practice due to the funny greeny backing stuff on the LCD - shining a red light on it didn't make it look red, but a muddy brown, and same with the other two... still, I had a go!

     14 January 2003, 09:14 GMT


Re: Colour!
JcN Account Info

That is why the kind of color that we want has the colors built into the LCD screen, like some of those Casio graphing calculators (remarkably cheaper than TI calcs, and with four colors with adjustible contrasts on each one. Unfortunately, their OS sux).

Re: Re: Re: Colour!
JcN Account Info

I don't really know US dollar to UK Pound conversions, but in America a Casio ColorGraph calculator can cost about $80.00. The only reason they are cheaper than a TI-83+ ($100.00) is because their memory and function catalog is significantly smaller (and more elementary), and their OS is very strange and does not resemble any computer program. TI-83+'s seem to resemble DOS prompts to me, but the ColorGraph OS consists of a homescreen consisting of nine icons which control different aspects of the calc. There is one for math functions, statistics, memory, programming, contrast, misc options, graphing, and a few other menus. The TI-83+ outmatches it in ability because it has much more of everything except display.

Oh, will QuickTime give me a lot of "Register Now!" or "Get New Version now!" pop-ups? Will it make me register after a period of days? (like a trial thinger?) If no to all of those, it's more than fine for me. :)

mp3 - it uses the MPEG-1 compression system (hence the 'mp'). It uses a certain type of MPEG-1 called 'MPEG-1 layer 3' - there is the three!
BTW, QuickTime is a piece of inefficient rubbish on the PC. (Choppy sound, low framerate even on a 266 - it works OK-ish on my new 2.4GHz though...). I suggest you download WinAmp from www.winamp.com. Download version 2 though - 3 is not very good (and is very very slow).
