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.

So I download this great program, and open the readme, and to my great surprise, I discover that the conspiracy of the .txt world. I mean, look at how numbar is spelled in the l33t ASCII pic, like some screwy word "number" or something. I would have to say I expect better in the next release (v2.00000069??). Well, just thought I would point out the buggy doc problem.

...but, but...

geez, don't any of you recognize what we have here? I for one am putting $77.02 into nickd.org.com, so when this news gets out I can ride the gravytrain that is Bluecalx all the way to zillionairedom. The DOJ, FCC, EPA, FDA, KGB, and FYP will all cry poo-poo, yet when the world gets its hands on this technical marvel, then and only then will the world finally grow into a peaceful post-post-modern de-evolved society. Glory to the 81 - DL

That is quite a dangerous step to take. After seeing this program in action, you should be aware that you're competing with forces far more powerful than you. If you don't back down soon you will certainly be destroyed.

Good point. Does he really want to face a wrath far worse than that of the KGB and its shadowy sibling the GRU? Anyone who inquired about joining the GRU (Soviet Military Intelligence Agency) was immediately executed as a spy by cremation while still alive. Again, does he really want to face a fate worse than this?

He obviously has no idea what he would be getting himself into.

no no no
I'm going to invest stock in nick's new b2b company
...and since there is no such thing as a dot-org zillionaire, we'll just have to be plain-jane dot-com zillionaires, becoming dickd.org.com At $.02 a share, my $77.02 investment will eventually set me and the entire nation of Lesotho up in mansions and yachts for life. YES!!!

No, unfortunately Regis is an unstoppable force (mainly based on the ammount of makeup he is wearing at any time during the day).

Yeah, right. I think you're jsut jealous because you can't program as well as Nick, and blamed everything on MicroSoft to avoid admitting your own inferiority.

I for one have had more trouble with trying to exceed notepad's allotted amount of ram than with wordpad.

Sounds like the start of a pyrotechnic conflict.

Maybe you should switch to using Random Numbar Generator as your preferred text editor.
