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.

Its much better than that annoying and painful *#$^*&@$%#%^##$#$@^**& drill! Apparently powerful lasers aren't in wide distribution.

My second two pennies fly off to ticalc.org's server

I'm sure that Random Numbar Generator can aid in the distribution of lasers.

Is there anything it can't do?

I doubt it can pyrolyze things, since that usually requires a *bit* more power than that contained within 4 AAA batteries. But, just about anything is possible with such a marvelous program as this, so it may:)

I'm sure the program can generate additional power as needed.

By pyrolyzing things, I meant blasting something under a plasma torch. Plasma torches use very high amounts of electricity to generate plasma from a gas, often air, which is so hot that anything that it touches is rapidly decomposed. It can be used to smelt metals or deal with hazardous waste. Metals are left behind as the only residue in smelting by plasma, and dangerous chemicals in hazardous waste are rapidly decomposed. Radioactive waste can be entombed in pyrolyzed matter because leaching is almost nonexistent from pyrolyzed matter, which is estimated to last for at least one million years, more than long enough for the radioactive atoms to decay.
A small section on plasma torches can be found at the link above.

Will you be making a version for the 89? I would hope you would and that is supports all the rom versions (all million or so of them).

Wow. As soon as I saw how amazing this program was, there was no doubt in my mind that it could help the other calculators as well. Truly, this is the final proof of Random Numbar Generator's great capabilities.

Or is it just the beginning of them?

Oh no, you have declared yourself superior to YodaToad! You had better be prepared for a long battle when he finds out about this bold statement.
