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.

Actually, we now have to get up to 417 to tie, or 418 to win. This unfortunate fact is due to the following article, which was added on July 20, 2000 to the anarchy board, which increases its size about the "traditional" value of 416.

Only because Americans (in general... I'm actually American) refuse to learn other languages, so if anybody wants to do business with America, they have to do it in English.

-----------------------------

But of course it doesn't matter, as there are now 410 comments on the board, victory should come within minutes. It isn't really fair to number comments, as in saying "this is number 411" for example, since the board is only updated every 5 minutes. If 7 others were posted previously in this period, this comment itself might be #418 which puts us over the top. Or maybe not. In any case, it won't take much longer at all.

Oops. Sorry. This one balances everything out, so it's like I didn't make that post, as far as the numbers are concerned.

Actually, I just noticed that the first comment page for this article is .../38229.html, then .../38229.1.html, then .../38229.2.html, and so on. So then I just changed it to /38229.10.html, saw there was still more, changed it to /38229.12.html, and here was the last page. Of course, by now, if enough comments are posted earlier on, it could change to /38229.13.html.

I shall take it further and (quite possibly) get the honor of 'last post.' It's also been > a year since the post I'm responding to, surely some sort of record.
