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.

Well, you've got it now. But if you really want very many people to read it, you'll need to put it closer to the beginning of the page. Try posting your comment as a reply to the first thread instead; you will get noticed much more if you do that.

Port?

Daammmnn this little proggie sounds good...
How about one of them ports to a ti-83+ sometime?
And correct me if I'm wrong...but aren't ports of programs written in BASIC not that hard to do?
But I dont think I could do it though...besides I dont have an 86...

I have ported it to the 83+, and uploaded it too. It's just that TICalcs takes a lone time to put new files up, which really sux.

471 comments is the number to beat, that shouldn't be too hard

What are you talking about ?!?!? The largest board, Anarchy Trial, only has 417 comments! Since we already have 300 and are still #2 on the front page, we should have no difficulty exceeding that.

Particularly since some of us choose to keep as much news as possible on the main page. I still have the infamous Rant on my customized main page.

Well, we're down to #4 on the front page now. But we are very very close to the anarchy trial in the number of posts (only 38 to go, and probably actually less due to stuff added since the last refersh).

What IS the Unified Field Theory? I know that Steven Hawkings tried but failed to develop it.

Well, it can be developed successfully now that Random Numbar Generator is available.

Unified Field Theory is a physics model that explains all interactions in the universe, specifically, electromagnetism, strong force, weak force, and gravity. All but the last have successfully been unified in a theory, but gravity seems to be a hydra crossed with pandora's box for this theory.

80% of the way !!!!!!!

Looking on the front page, you can see that this article has now gone past 334 posts, the 80% mark for beating Anarchy Trial. Only one-fifth of the way is left to travel before this becomes the largest board on ticalc.org! Of course, some people may be distracted by silly things like the new AMS (Sadly, not everyone realizes that Random Numbar Generator transcends all pitiful AMS details), but since we are already most of the way there, there is no doubt that this board will triumph soon.

I spoke to soon; we're now at the 90% mark. Only 36 posts to go until we achieve total victory over the 'anarchy trial' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
