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. My Random number generator went all the way to 1000 instead of the miniscule 30 numbers, Has the unsurpassed ability to give you hints as well as *GASP* Keep your best score! It blows this game away and it's for EVERY Z80 PLATFORM IN EXISTANCE!!!

Still not impressed? just wait until I release Final Fantasy Quadratic Solver. It makes every quadratic formula an Epic Struggle of good Vs evil!! It will Blow Every Quadratic solver *AWAY* for the Ti-89!!

If your prog is so great, then why no hype?

Because his is inferior to mine in the following ways: mine's _real_, mine works, and mine's available for download from the very server that this site's on.

> mine works

So does mine!!

>and mine's available for download from the very server that this site's on.

So is mine. If you dont believe me. go to Either the 83 or the 85 archive and download numbers.zip!!

I was referring to the quadratic formula portion of the comment.

well FFQuad doesn't exist. I can make it exist in about a day though. Not too sure if people would want to use a quadratic solver that forces you to go on an epic quest to defeat an insanely powerful boss just to get an answer to a quadratic equasion :P

Yeah, not many people would want to do that to solve a problem that could be done by hand in just a few seconds anyway.

I'm sure he knew that very clearly. He jsut seems to be trying to be obnoxious.

Unfortunately, those characteristics are the same ones that will prevent it from achieving the same level of fame as this program!

Because it's a conspiracy by Ticalc.org to corner the Market on Number Generators. They Want Their Inferior Product to be the Standard in Number Generation, and are attempting to crush the competition by hyping their Number Generator as a superior product when in reality in cannot hold a candle to Numbers and it's advanced features.

Oh really? How many foreighn languages are learned with your program? Not many! Has it ever been used to debug the space shuttle? I doubt it! And can it travel to Neptune? No way! Face the facts, your program just can't compare ....

Can I have my upcoming game hyped too?

Heh. You might, if it were as good as Random Numbar Generator. But, I doubt that's the case. Sometimes you just have to accept failure; like when you're competing with such brilliant programs as this one.

I have a "brilliant" idea: How about a Constant Number Generator? No matter how many times you run it and under any conditions, it ALWAYS gives the same number. It's like magic or something...

Of course! Maybe it would work better for answers for which I have no idea on scantrons.

After all of this crap about everyone leaving, and all the bull, THANK YOU NICK for finally coming through with the humor we all love :)

I think this will actually cause more people to leave. Once people see how wonderful the program is, they will realize that they can't possibly compete with it, and decide to quit.

Some of us know no such thing as failure. Victory can be found everywhere in everything!

Not everyone here has such an optimistic attitude. Consider the effect it had on TI; do you really think they would have released AMS 2.05 when they did if not for this program? This AMS obviously has no differences from the previous one; the only explanation is that TI realized they couldn't compete, so they're just re-releasing identical ROMs over and over again.

It can. You just need to press the right buttons.
