Nick Disabato Releases Random Numbar Generator
Posted by Nick on 19 July 2000, 21:19 GMT

Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00000069WORD! In another display of programming finesse that once again leaves the TI "community" in hushed awe, Nick Disabato has released Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator v1.00000069 for the TI-86.

Written in BASIC, this very well could be the absolute apex in random number guessing games for years - nay, eons to come. Though it's true that Nick borrowed the idea from Phil Genera, surely he borrowed the code from no source other than himself.

According to Steve Whittaker, file archiver at ticalc.org, "This could be the greatest game ever written. I've never had so much fun in my life. In fact, it's just slightly less entertaining than [censored]."

Added Steve, "This could, in some fashion, help a great deal to developing a new ROM image for the TI-89, as well."

Magnus Hagander, one of the creators of ZShell, was reported as saying, "That punk kid made something cooler than ZS!! I'll kill him!"

A ticker tape parade is planned down LaSalle Street in Chicago for Nick's contributions to humankind. Millions of tax dollars are being poured into the last-minute project.

Richard P. Feynman, professor at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY; was quoted as describing the program as "revolutionary to developing a unified field theory." Others have claimed it has caused them to learn Sanskrit.

I must say, this is one of the most amazing feats of our time. If I could only code as well as this "Nicky Disabato" can I'd be set for life already. It's truly amazing.

The next time you call me "Nicky," I will bonk you on the head with an oversized rubber mallet so that you go crashing through the floor.

Heh, ok Nickie, there, I changed it, now it's not only original, but also exempt from any rupper malleting going on in here. Oh, and btw Nick, I'm sure your program is the best ever written, and will win the POTM just because you wrote it, I would give everyone a first-hand synopsis of the program but didn't feel like wasting, umm, err, hoarding the bandwidth required to download a 1k file, that way other poor saps, err, programmers, can experience the joys of The Great Almighty BlueCalx's programming abilities.

Thanks Nick for brightening my day,
Ron!

When used sparingly and in context, yes, Patty. Alex, or should I say Aley, was a bit excessive in suggesting Nicole as another name for Nick. I just didn't want to see a bunch of people, including myself, waste time and energy in a flame war that would just be deleted, if it made it to the board in the first place.

OK, you've thought of one. But posting there is a very bad idea because it would make it take longer for this board to overtake it in number of comments (though we are very very close now).

Extrapolated from nickd.org 's history page: It used to be all images and javascripts with little pull of its own, but has slowly shifted to almost pure text, ideas, and gravity.

I just remembered that my school's network isn't exactly anonymous, but at least we don't use our id#s to logon. They can still track us down by who checked out the use of the computer though.

That's right! Its able to directly traverse the space-time continuum, eliminating that whole theory about it requiring faster-than-light travel to do that. Now all that we need is for it to generate an unrestricted amount of negative energy to create wormholes:)

Just checked the wormhole hypothesis. It works! I wound up on USS Voyager(NCC-74656) and narrowly avoided a plasma relay next to a Jeffries tube. I guess I made it back okay after that detour through the Borg home sector...

I realize that yours is Stuart, not Stewart. I was comparing two shortened versions of your name to homophones of them. It made a lot more sense to me 9.5 hours ago when I posted that. If this explanation seems discombobulated, its 3am and the only things keeping me awake are caffeine, altoids, and my mp3s.
