Isn't that like the "No, I've been voting in the ticalc.org survey for a long time" option?

The pictures wouldn't have to be very big - maybe just a 100 KB JPEG.

Then it's inevitable that somebody would post porn and we'd get blacklisted again.

(TI recalled the ticalc.org archive cdrom because there was some pornographic material on the site. That was about a month before the "report inappropriate files" option was added. That and all the red text above the "post comment" form.)

It would be nice to have a field on the user info page for when the person joined ticalc.org. I had to go to Google for the title of this post.

I wish we'd do something like that again.

Oh well, I still have the CD I got with a couple of my programs on it at least.

What about some more eyecandy? Not too much though...

Ticalc.org doesn't want that anyone has a TI-84 Plus SE. This calc isn't listed in the profile options. :S

Where's the "It's not the first but it just might be the lamest"-option? Anyway, if I get a good idea for a poll I'll suggest it (don't hold your breath though...).

I know really - and the options aren't very well-thought-out. How 'bout a survey for your gender?

There's no need to call people names like that, you idiot! :)

Seriously, maybe he just didn't know that, probably because he hasn't looked through the 256 or so past surveys already.

Just curious, are there exactly 256 previous surveys, or did you just randomly choose that number? Is it because it's a round number in hexadecimal?

Or maybe it's because it's 11111111 in Binary (I think that's what it is)... numb-nuts...*shifty eyes*

That would be 255. 256 is 100000000 in binary, 1010101000010.010001010101 (I think) in base phi (phigital, perhaps? phinary?), 400 in octal, & 100 in hex.

I believe he chose 256 because there are 256 other surveys.

Ya, that is very odd. Looks like we will overflow and the next post will be one.

---For the record I realize that, that won't happen :)

Actually, this survey is 1. The next will be 2.

Really, I doubt ticalc stores the surveys numbers in an 8-bit field. They probably use 9 bits or more.

Actually, this is the 0th survey.

(unsigned char)(255+1) == 0

This survey is number 257. There are 256 *previous* surveys, and they start with 1.

257 % 256 = 1

By the way, if you start numbering from 0, such as with array indexes in C and other languages, the *first* item is number 0. It's not the 0th. The second item is number 1, the third is number 2, and so on. The number or index of an item is the *offset* from the first item.

Then this would be the 1st survay, assuming the survay index is 8-bit.

Mathematically, however, 0 is the smallest, and therefore foremost, non-negative number on a 1-dimensional coordinate system (i.e. a "number line"). We have all been incorrectly taught that the first ten non-negative integers are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, but in reality they are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. 10 is just the beginning of the second iteration of the pattern. Therefore, the 0th element refers to the foremost element in a memory block (or the foremost element of anything, for that matter)--the element most people call the first element. The 1st element refers to the element after the foremost element--the element most people would call the second element, etc.

Math books occasionally (not sure how often) start numbering chapters, theorems, etc. at 0. Yay for 0 (which is my favorite number)!

Technically, you are right in saying 0 is non-negative, but it isn't positive either...it's kinda like the number one being neither prime nor composite...they teach that the first ten positive numbers are 1-10 which is true...

Or...

clr d0
clr d1
move.w #256,d0
move.b d0,d1
tst.b d1
beq d1_is_0

d1_is_0:
;this is the 0th survey because d1 is 0.

Well, this survey is number 257. The past surveys all seem to be numbered sequentially without any numbers missing between surveys, and the first is numbered 1.

Therefore I concluded that there must be 256 previous surveys. :)

Well, are you against posts being about posts? Because frankly, I didn't like your negativity in your previous post. Although the blue and light plue heading on your post is pretty cool...not so original, but still cool. ;)
