ticalc.org Merchandise Now Available!
Posted by Joey on 1 April 2003, 02:00 GMT

In order to cover the cost of moving ticalc.org to the new server, we will be selling merchandise with pictures of the original staff at the brand-new ticalc.org store. After the results of our recent survey, we expect this to be very popular. Although there are only a few items available now, we will add more once we can figure out the pricing. Pre-order now to get priority delivery. DOITGORIGHTNOW!

Update (Michael): Okay, so it's fake. But we know how much everyone wants a Magnus thong!

Really? I have to see this. I didn't think that poll would ever be of any use.

I have to pluck out my eyes with a sharp stick after seeing that third item.

I agree. Especially considering that a survey done a while back was what your sex was, and I think it was over 200 people who responded, one of whom was female. Come on guys, you have to be kidding about that thong!

And another thing, I think there should be a T-shirt with the ticalc.org logo, not just a bunch of different staff members' pictures... people will realize what your t-shirt means if it has the ticalc.org logo on it, but a pic of some random guy named Magnus with "All your base are belong to Magnus" is pretty lame and really has very little to do with TI calculators.

Another idea is to possibly make a sports jersey with the number 83 or 86 or 89 or 92 corresponding with your personal favorite calculator. You could also have a pic of the actual calculator on the front of the jersey.

To sum it up, get that thong outta there. The vast majority of users on this site are male, and even if they were to buy it for their girlfriends, who would want to give their girlfriend a thong with a pic of some random guy!? Get rid of the thong NOW.

I consulted with two of my ├╝berhot female friends before we started this project, and they both said they dug Magnus and would wear a thong with his picture. Despite the fact that they preferred nickd, Magnus only wanted the original staff. Perhaps he was jealous of nickd...

What do you suggest we sell? Or should be "accept donations. I bought a thong for my math teacher, she likes those kinds of things, I am hoping to get a special order and have the ticalc.org logo on it.

sell the old archive CDs, "inapropriot material" Ticalc archive CDa are probably collector items now, or just whole archive CD's, but it has to have ticalc.org on it, or a calc model, or something cool involving CALCULATORS. Maybe ticalc.org slide covers...? Woah, I think I actually had a good idea... or customized battery covers...

It's definitely an April fools joke. I think they told us they'd outline the fake news in red, just to get us to believe some other random bit of craziness they would think of.

Think about it: It's fake news...and the bigger joke is the new TI-V400...whatever it's called.

ok, I don't often reply to anything, but ALL red news items are jokes. What's the date agins? April 1? Last time (if I remember right) they said there were going to put up advertisements.

Earlier (before Midnight April 1st) the item was NOT red, so some people thought it wasn't fake

The graphics for the mug look fake. But either way, I know it's an April Fools joke ;) The thong one was funny, though! Oh, you should do Magnus boxers! Or whitey-tighties!

I agree wholeheartedly. The thong really ought to go. And I was going to also make the point about shirts with TiCalc.org on them. I would be much more inclined to purchase a Ticalc.org shirt than a Magnus shirt.

I have an ethics question for you guys (Staff). If you do not allow programs etc. that some people consider offensive, why do you allow things being sold that to some is obviously offensive? If it is at the users option to buy the thong,then it should be the users option to download those programs etc.

I've taken no sides in writting this post.

That is an exceptionally good point. As the writer of WEED4, I would really like to see it able to be restored.

unless you take it an offensive matter, which says you are quite offensive/childish and ought to be removed, (and in that simple statement I alienate half of ticalc.org) and maybe dope wars is meant as giving pain killers to poor old women with cronic pain who need marijuana to get through the day...

The context it is being used in can be offensive. Some people do not see anything wrong with porn...

The only times I've seen p0rn on the internet is a few times by accident. (Never type in girls names and add ".com" in the address bar)

And why were you doing this? :) j/k
Actually, I once went to the White House website, but I forgot it was .gov and typed in .com instead. I didn't particularly like the result.

well i guess that it is good that many of the viewers of this site do not look at porn since as determined previously, most people here are 16? and that would be ILLEGAL. I dont think that anyone would say that there is nothing wrong with that.

Yeah! There's nothing wrong with it!

Seriously, if you think there's NOTHING wrong with porn, NOTHING AT ALL, not even anything that your conscience (sp?) says to you, then you have some issues to work out (or you work at whitehouse).

He's probably hiding in a corner somewhere in shame because his face ended up on a thong. :)
