First I'd like to congratulate Sam Heald. He doesn't get those downloads for nothing, his programs are trully great. (If you have a 8x, check the URL above for excellent games.)

Second, I'd like to congratulate the rest of the 'millionair club': congrats Patrick Davidson (a very small 'group' indeed Michael ;) ).

Third, post (Hmm, I must have mixed up the order somewhere ;).)

It's like a weblog, except it predates the word by quite a bit; it's a file you talk about your progress in.

Now that's an understatement :)

.plan:s predate *the web*. If memory serves me right, it appeared at least in 3BSD, which was released in 1979. It may have been released even earlier in non-BSD.

Congrats to Sam Heald, but there's one thing that interests/amuses me, and that is how many TI users have the time to play games on their toys.

It's called 'Maths lessons when the teacher thinks that you are doing some work'.

I do it more commonly during History or Study Hall ;-) Our school passed this little rule where if you're caught with any electronic device that plays games or music, then it could be confiscated... but, I think all the calc users could get away with it, because "it's for math" I did get my TI-82 taken away from me once. I was passing it back and forth with a friend, as a chat inside a program, well the teacher goes "PASS IT UP HERE AND DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING" If I was holding it when he said that I would have hit [2nd]+[mode]+[prgm]+[8] (CrASH) and could have argued that we were laughing about the fact that there were games on a calculator... but my friend wasn't as fast... he did get [2nd], though ;) Now, I'm going to be more careful doing that in Study Hall (meany teacher).

I don't quite agree with the language in this post, but I am annoyed that Mr. Vincent seems to have deleted the majority o fmy posts, including one that said "first post" but also addressed the issue at hand, complementing Sam on his success. I have come to the conclusion that these boards aren't what they used to be. It's a shame.

yes, my off topic post was deleted :) i put an offtopic post to see if the non constructive post rule would be enforced :) and btw, your first post thing, did you EVER READ THE RULES ABOVE THE POST MAKING BOX?????!?!?!?!? AND I QUOTE "Messages containing "first comment" boasts, requests for game ports, or criticisms of "newsworthiness" will generally be deleted."
AND AGAIN I QUOTE "Please be constructive and keep comment topics relevant to the article you are replying to.
"
THANK YOU FOR MY 2CENTS

I agree that the "first post!!!" should be deleted. I don't want to read the "FIRST POST J000!!!" every time I go into a topic.

Personally, first posts don't bother me, as long as they have some other significance to the post, but if it's just "FR0ST P0STZ! HAHAHAHA J00 5UXX0R5" then I think it definitely should be deleted.

Well, I don't mind, very much... :)
This is the first forum I came since michael is in charge, I didn't knew, because I hadn't the time to come over, because of school, I would like to congratulate michael, super mario is my fave game (after Zelda), the TI-83 version kicks ass, so congratulations to sam heald too, maybe you could update it with the new grey scale :PPP

Yeah, actually, to be perfectly honest, first post boasts don't really bother me. Even though they may be a waste, I don't really care that much. A post is a post. That's why the only censoring that I really 100% approve of is filtering REALLY bad comments, like with the f-word in every sentence. That's about it, though. Without any off-topic posts, the conversation seems to be almost stale. That's why the General Discussion board is a good idea ;)
