Welcome back - new ISP connected
Posted by Magnus on 23 April 2002, 10:37 GMT

If you're reading this, your DNS has updated, and you are now looking at ticalc.org through our new ISP. SolNet is in the process of switching to KPNQwest as ISP, and ticalc.org has been moved to the new networks. This move have caused a short downtime due to DNS expiry for some users - but if you're reading this, your DNS has now updated.

We hope this will give you even better uptime and better performance. Let us know at webmaster@ticalc.org if you have any problems due to the new connection.

while you were down, i was trying to find info about link cables.
using a phone link looks a good idea but i was wondering if a could build one end of the adapter to act as a graph link???
would this work???

(this is my first ever post!!! it is kinda relevant as i was looking whilst you were down, and this is about why you were down...)

Welcome to hell!!!...I am the local werewolf...allow me to show you eternal suffering and ludicrous stupidity cramed into a small screen. Throw that calc away and get yourself a weapon...preferably semi-auto and with large clip capacity...3rd burst is better, but forget full auto, just a waste of ammo. Having fun yet. ;=) AOOUoUOuOUUOuououooo WereWolf.com "...stuck in reality..." Muhahahaha

That's the most sense you ever said chickendude. ;=) i modified a line from that us marshal movie where the guy says "get rid of that gay chrome plated crap ass beretta (little exaggeration,,,don't totally remember) and get yourself a glock" of course i modifed the line extensively to include the full motif of what ticalc is all about and the fact that glocks are ugly as hell...;=)

Damn...did i right that...geez

owell, anyone see my post about German websites all being "gay" with excessive porn banners and zugang software that forces you revisit the same page with each attemp to leave before you delete the temp internet files...

Well looks like Germany knows how to kill people...Besides having the most sucessful gun manafuctororerer in the world, dare i say H&K, they also have the most accurate to hitting the killzone students in the world...hmm one step below me though ;=) Of course killing people is wrong...unless they try to kill you...then its party time Evil Dead style... ;=)

Wohoo...on a side note i have another monitor because my second replacement burned out...atleast it went in honor, after a completed succesful roguespear city street large training mission using the ump 45-sd and the hk .45 mark 23-sd...it went out like a slyvania bulb as the label signifies...last sat i went on my first turkey hunt(i was up for 21 hours that day)...we (my dad, I, my dads friend) called in a turkey...another hunter snipped it...i got to kill 3 ticks...a little one i pulled from my dads arm with my leatherman...a fat one on my glove cuff...and one crawling on my neck...i squished the one on my glove...i packaged the one on my neck in an empty soda bottle...hahaha die slowly!!! ;=) AOUOUOUOUouoUOUouououoo

O and i got a laser mouse cause i busted the connector on my old one for forcing it to hard...this thing is outstanding for multiplayer...my sniperrifle and pistol were never so precise...its a intelli explorer 3.0....6000dpi...hell of a lot better then the boomslang razor 2xxx dpi...computers suck...war games on the otherhand have potential. Agh i love the sight of a collapsing hostile target, real are better ;=)

laser mouse?

Just watch me continue this offtopic string

I am currently using an intelimouse explorer as well. It sucks, the buttons are too soft, and it is too big in some places (near the top) and too small in others. Personally I don't think that the dpi of your mouse really matters unless your hardware can handle it. I doubt that you have your refresh rate up high enough to experience any benefit. USB sucks. I like standards, and getting things to work in linux sometimes takes too much effort to be worth while. Win modems are bad. Get a hardware modem. Wait, they aren't produced anymore. OK, then get one with a lucent chipset. ... oh and while I am at it. Intel is bad.

back on topic, it seems that ticalc.org is having much fewer problems than calc.org , and although I have noticed some speed problems on occasion, they aren't as annoying as downtime.

your right,,,usb is crap,,,very slow crap,,,i use the ps2 adapter that came with it...and this mouse is wierd...but once you set the orientation up...its pretty nice...(orientation=adjusting what is up and down left and right by how you move it)...and the dpi rez is great and hardware isn't a factor as far as i see in the movement...i was picking off roguespear multiplayers with my hk 45 at long range...the chance of hitting was measured in pixels...i have no complaints. ;=) sat=turkey hunt day 2!!!!

It's an asm game that is sort of like avalanch. You have a ship (looks like a '^'). Lines from the top come down and you have to dodge them. there are two modes of play, one where you can go under the lines and one where the lines come down all the way, so you can't go under them. There is a highscore for both modes. Plus, there is an option for how many lines you would like to have come down at a time and one for the speed. I will also add more things in the future...

Hehe ... did you actually count how many there were?
Anyway, does it really matter? After all, getting a large number of programs is hard to do when you only program for one calculator ... besides, I'm over the image packs now. I'm going to continue with my original strategy of releasing high-quality programs.

Are we the only ones with our 'stats page' as our webpage link? Wait, I think 343Guiltyspark has that too.... speaking of which, where did he go? I have to finish cleaning the TI-82s.

i am in charge for the time he is away
so keep cleaning and dusting the ti-82's

B_CALL(_clrLCDfull)
B_CALL(_homeup)
ld hl,text
B_CALL(_puts)
ret

text:
.db "display this",0
.end

how do i do that in hex on a ti-83+?

show it peice by peice so i can understand and seperate the hex codes, seperate each one with a space so i can break it down

This is the output from my compiler:
0006 0000 .LIST
0007 9D95 .org 9D95h
0008 9D95
0009 9D95 EF B_CALL(_clrLCDfull)
0009 9D96 40 45
0010 9D98 EF B_CALL(_homeup)
0010 9D99 58 45
0011 9D9B 21 A2 9D ld hl,text
0012 9D9E EF B_CALL(_puts)
0012 9D9F 0A 45
0013 9DA1 C9 ret
0014 9DA2
0015 9DA2 text:
0016 9DA2 646973706C61.db "display this",0
0016 9DA8 79207468697300
0017 9DAF .end
So...
EF 4045 EF 5845 21 A2 9D EF 0A45 C9
64 69 73 70 6C 61 79 20 74 68 69 73 00

the 21A29D is ld hl,text
EF = B_CALL(...)
4045 = _clrLCDFull (defined as 4540 in the include file, so the 45 and 40 are switched)
5845 = _homeup (defined as 4558 in the include file, so the 45 and 58 are switched)
0A45 = _puts (defined as 450A in the include file, so the 45 and 0A are switched)
21 = ld
A2 = location being loaded (label)
9D = hl
64 69 73 70 6C 61 79 20 74 68 69 73 = these are the character #s (64='d' 69='i' 73='s' etc...)
00 = null terminator

note: to get uppercase letters, subtract twenty (sorta) from the lower case.
ex:
64 = 'd'
44 = 'D'
6A = 'j'
4A = 'J'

so if you add a ROM call, increase the A2 part by three (A5) and once you go above A9, it goes to AA,AB,AC...B0,etc.

At least ticalc finally uploaded my programs, they were sitting in the queue for two weeks.

It's not always "heavy". When I uploaded a few small TI-89 progs a couple of weeks ago, the queue was actually "minimal".

Oh no!!! lord_nightrose has 1000+ downloads this week and he's third!!! What are we to do?

I wish I got that many downloads in a week ... it probably helps to release programs for a calculator that most people actually have.
