I like that last option... Can't forget about the Aussies. :D

...not that Aussies actually have projects...
I might do some more basic programs. Just random routines that would normally take the average user a few hours to think up the best way to do something (still can't get over how I got palindrome solver down to 1/3rd of the original code). =P

How big could a palindrome solver possibly be?

:Input "TEST WORD? ",Str1
:1-->A
:For(I,1,length(Str1)/2
:If sub(Str1,I,1) =/= sub(Str1,length(Str1)-I,1
:DelVar A
:End
:If A
:Then
:Disp "PALINDROME
:Else
:Disp "NOT A PALINDROME
:End

Maybe I should clarify my meaning of "Palindrome Solver" as being the method to get a derived palindromic number. I do regard your example as a palindrome solver but this is how I code:
######RAW 83+ BASIC######
ClrHome
Disp "PALINDROME"," SOLVER"
Input "INPUT NUMBER:",N
ú1üS
Lbl H
ClrList L
1üR
NüY
S+1üS
int(log(Y)+1)üD
Lbl N
(fPart(Y*10^ú1)*10^D)üX
iPart(Y*10^ú1)üY
XüL(R)
R+1üR
YüL(R)
D-1üD
If D=0:Goto A
Goto N
Lbl A
sum(L)üY
Disp N,Y
Pause
If N=Y:Goto F
N+YüN
Goto H
Lbl F
Disp "FOUND! STEP(S)",S
Pause
Stop
#######################
Regretfully I cannot find the other version where I used Lists where the inverse routine used L(N)*10:L(N)*100:L(N)*1000. Since that's limited to 999 numbers I couldn't use that method but it was a learning experience. After a lot of trial and error (hacking, per se) I decided just to use fpart ipart.
I also tried using strings but figured this method was better since it required less alteration to port to other calcs.

Heh. In my latest "Password Routines" I abuse the use of strings yet again. They're just not versatile enough.

why not just:

:For(I,1,length(Str1)/2
:If sub(Str1,I,1) =/= sub(Str1,length(Str1)-I,1
:Stop
:End
:Disp "NOT A PAL

Prolly have to agree with you there. I dont have "projects", I jsut do dribs and drabs on programs which i feel compelled to write every now and then. I've got a few programs in the works. Currently working on an astronagivation program, with a fairly large database too.

I would write hundreds of math, physics, chemistry programs but since I'm not allowed to use them in exams for my final year this year, there's no real point. :@ Next year yr12 can use a whole book for Math notes in the exam, this year it's 2 sheets double sided with cleared calcs. (not to mention that we're restricted to the 89/92/92+ for methods and 82/83/83+(not SE) for any other science subject WHILE next year they can use whatever calculator they like).
Talk about lowering the standards, or perhaps they just realised a lot of schools are using text books where half the crap isn't required to learn for the course; let alone all the time needed to learn what has to be remembered...

Or...you could just not use valuable time making one.

I'm not Tasmanian though :-) Not Aussie either. Lived in Sydney, Darwin, Hobart.

Not many people in Australia are Aussies =P
That may or may not affect the ratio of Aussies with calculator prgm projects this Winter. ;-)

I'll try to continue working on some of the many projects I started. It'll be nice to see some progress on projects I started a couple years ago. :)

I've made more progress on my Unix for the TI-92+ (Punix). Recently I've been writing the standard (POSIX) header files, which has helped me understand many of the standard data structures used in Unix systems.

A few days ago I upgraded my libc to glibc 2.3.2, so now I can run TIGCC "properly" instead of with a kludgey work-around (see /src/sys/kern/Makefile in the Punix project to know what I mean - see link). I'm so happy! It was really painless too. I downloaded Slackware 10.1 (I have 8.1 installed) to install, but I figured I could just upgrade my glibc now and not worry about the rest until later. I just had to do a "upgradepkg" and give it the name of the glibc package, and baaaaaaam! (it took a little longer than bam!) it's done. No sweat. Also, since it's not Windows, I didn't even have to reboot, even though it's a pretty essential library used by practically everything in the system.

That's enough of my rambling for now.

What distro are you using? Nevermind, Slackware. I use Debian.

I like not rebooting as well. But I do have to take the machine down every night, because I can't sleep with it on (in my room).

My computer is also in my bedroom, but it's not very loud (it's an old 300MHz AMD K6), so I can sleep with it running. I think white noise actually _helps_ me to sleep.

By the way, I have almost 188 days of uptime. Woohoo! Meanwhile, Microsoft recommends restarting their toy operating systems frequently.

I use hibernate in Windows XP & I only have to restart after I have had lots of misbehaved downloaded programs crash (or I run something that hogs all resources & I cannot kill it...).

Do you use a non-Administrator account? If you do, that's a pretty buggy OS you have.

Anybody know this?? I cant get my computer to Hibernate.. or standby for that matter.. when I go to Start>Turn Off Computer, and the window pops up, the standby button is faded out so you cant click it.. you cant hold shift and click hibernate either.. anybody know whats up with it?

if you've got XP SP2, it autodownloads updates in the background, partially installs them, and waits until you shut the computer down normally to finish installation. It could be not letting you hibernate for that reason.

That's actually one of the most convenient features of Windows I've found to date.

But I've been shutting it down normally for about 3 months!!!

speaking of computer problems I am having trouble running some software. Dont laugh, I know its an old one but when I go to run QB I get the an errror that says the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windowds applications. I have found the problem on line and I tried to fix it through dos but It didnt work. It worked at one point though. For further insentive I can also say that this error occurs whenever I go to compile and assembly program. Any body got any ideas besides wiping the c drive.

Replace whichever system folder is giving you trouble. There is probobly a copy of the file on your Windows disk.
