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 am quite impressed by this program. I wish that someday I could learn to program like Nick does.

Yeah, I know! This is *SO* much better than pheonix. I mean, I might as well just delete it from my calculator!

The Random Numbar Generator magically morphed his 86 into an 89. I've got an 89 now too. Wow, it's great!!

i for one was especially impressed with the unique features found when running the 81 port on VTi: I smell something cooking, so i look and suddenly I've got 2.5 gb rdram. Also, equally impressive, my k6-2 overclokked itself to 9GHz. But, the most innovative of all, is the sheer power this program releases when actually run on the 81. I'm hoping the college board don't find out, cuz i would've made a 7 on my APCAB if I had this baby 6 weeks ago. Mad props to Nick and all those who still believe.....DL

If you only get 9Ghz, you aren't using it correctly.

Without using the Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator, one should be able to safely overclock a GHz AMD Athlon to about 1.5 GHz by submerging the board in liquid nitrogen and using software overclocking.

That's an amazing discovery. Only about 525,600 minutes ago most people would have though it was impossible; but then again, that's before Nick's phenomenal accomplishments entered the world stage.

Quite obviously, he is holding a TI-89 to show how this program can transcend all of the differences between calculators.

So does that mean that all of my calculators except my TI-89 were a waste of money?

At least I didn't lose any money getting my TI-83. I won it at a district MathCounts competition in 8th grade (I got 3rd).

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: WOW!

You got a TI-83 for getting THIRD at districe MathCounts????? I didn't get anything other than trophies and certificates for getting first in my chapter, fourth in the state, or first in the CountDown round in the state! Of course, for making it to nationals, I got a TI-89.... But what state/chapter are you in?

I _was_ in the 3-county chapter just north of Atlanta that includes Cobb County. I have since moved on to bigger, better, and more stressful things, namely Mu Alpha Theta and International Baccalaureate, as I will enter 11th grade this August. I have also since moved to a different state.

I'm not trying to insult you, but I think getting fourth place in the state and being on the state team that gets fifth in the country is more significant than getting third out of three counties....

Yeah, it is. And on the TI-86 even!

Actually, um, I got an early version of the port to the 89... Somehow... "over the rainbow"...

I tried entering all the numbers in your message into the program, but not one of them was correct.

Actually haikus are really simple. Its just coming up with subject matter that makes sense in 17 syllables. I had a haiku about the Random Numbar Generator, but kind of forgot it.
