Archives Partially Re-open
Posted by Magnus on 10 November 2001, 15:50 GMT


As our screening progresses, we have now created the scripts and programs we need to open our archives section by section, as they are screened. Right now, this means the Windows, DOS and TI-86 sections. An up to date list of which sections are open and which are still down will be available on our front page at all times. Sections that are down will result in a "403 Permission Denied" error from the server.

For the time being, only http (web) access will be open to the archives. Ftp will be added back on at a later date.

We have removed several programs from our archives in the screened sections. Our focus right now is on getting the archives back online, so we may in a few cases have removed programs that should not be removed. These uncertain cases will be reviewed once we have completed the screening of the rest of our archives. Feel free to report any such program to webmaster@ticalc.org, and we'll add it to our queue.

Once again, we are sorry for the trouble caused by this.

Update (Magnus): TI-83Plus and BeOS sections are now also opened.

File Ranking
Peter Martijn Kuipers  Account Info

Will the file ranking start from zero again for all files, once it's re-implemented, or will they continue with their original download counts?
Might be nice to get a new view of the download stats, without having old files ranked high (in top 10), just because they're around for so long....

I think they should all be reset. It would be interesting to see how well the old files do compared to the newer ones.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've needed programs for so long. I had fun going to sites like shiar.org, and chattin at Macross2000.org, and checking out all of the other sites.

My view towards people with an 89, is that it will probably take the longest to check, since it actually had porn and all that. Tons of files to check.

Yep. Nothing scared the hell out of me more than seeing one of my geekey friends try to show me greyscale porn on his calc. If someone needs porn that much then they have a psychological issue.

Re: Archives Partially Re-open

If the archives are open for a certain calculator does that mean that new files can be added to it, while your still screening the other calcs?

great job opening the archives (partially) again. but i found one little inconsequential problem: you can't view the text files and readmes in the .zip files. just thought i'd let you know.

Is it just me, or does the file archive status show up twice on the front page?

Yep, it's by design. It's at top and bottom of our news, just to make it extra-conspicuous.

Oh, I see, it's probably a problem with the handler for the settings. I guess it will happen if you have file archives on top and news at the bottom (like me).

why don't you make a new lay-out in the database where you can sort the programs on date etc... it would be very good!

Click the "Date" header in the file list. It's been there quite a while.

Remember back on April first when Calc.org, aka The OTHER calc page, made a false TiCalc.org? Well in case you don't they did. The most popular downloads, as they put it, were Pamela Anderson pics. Unless you never figured out how to transfers files to and from you calc you would know that these, until now, existed.
Just because TI makes a big stink abouty something doesn't mean that it is wrong. What ever happen to freedom of speech. Well that is my opoion.

As for them deleting my comment they can't. I didn't violate any of the rules which they plainly stated when trying to replt to a comment. The Calc.org version of TiCalc.org is still open I just looked at it. I didn't mean to come off as a porn fiend, but that was the only file I could think of a the moment. There is a RPG that uses adult language for the 82 and I believe a port for the 83+. That game was hailed as one of the greasted TI RPGs yet. If this site and TI were seperate, why try to combine them. Obvouisly TI people have been finding this site for years without the use of a cd.

ok, ok, i just checked it and it does work... but when i originally posted it it didnt...

but it's no surprise to ticalc that there were files in the archive that were 'indecent.' ooh, i bet they told ti that they were appaled to find this out or some crap like that.
