TI Keyboard: More Information Released
Posted by Eric on 16 June 2002, 08:40 GMT

TI has finally released new information on something that should have come out many years ago, the TI Keyboard. The keyboard, which runs on 3 AAA batteries and contains many nifty features such as compatibility with Microsoft Word, will be available in the fall.

I know that this may be off-topic from this news item, but it's still on-topic within ticalc itself. With that out of the way ...
Why do people continue to upload 83+ images? Don't they know that they don't count in stats anymore? Like that Jeff kid ... he uploaded ANOTHER batch of pictures to the archives.

Not only that, but stupid people like him take up the archivers time, so they can't put my stuff out that's been pending for 2 WEEKS!

Okay, now it seems I've been waiting forever to get my files through. Are the ticalc archive people on vacation or something?

He meant to say "no one" not none. Most average people don't know that "no one" is actually two words. Just like people can't understand that "a lot" is meant to be two words.

PS: If I spelled any words wrong in this post then I've invalidated everything I just said.

You spelled "invalitated" wrong. ;) just kidding. Umm, you notice the j/k at the bottom of that other guys post? He's making a joke, he's (trying) to be funny.

I'm new to the boards so I did miss that one. On some of the forums I go to people use smiley faces to show they're kidding. Thx though.

I mean, how long do they really take to make?
1) Use paint package of your choice to scale down an image to 96x64.
2) Save it and load RIG Convertor.
3) Load the image, click 'Auto'
4) Output the image.
5) Put it on the net, getting in the way of eveyone elses uploads.

Okay, I have a great idea!!!!!!!

Lets remove the god damn directory called "images" and delete all the freaking images in this site!!!!! Those useless programs that no one download are making pending time take longerÂ….

I have like 60 programs on pending right now and i'm very eager to get them added!!!!! I sent like several programs two weeks ago and like 50 ported games this week. Finally i get 3 programs added to the site today, wednesday 19!!!!!

By the way, I have ported 47 asm games from the 83 to the 86 with the help of some programs and they are on pending right now!!! Nearly all of these games take up about "TWO HUNDRED TO TWO THOUSAND BYTES" less than the version right now in the 86/asm/games section ported by experienced asm programmers!!!!! Plus all of these ported games are fully tested with rewritten readme files and credit given to original authors and 83 porters.

Definitly agree about getting rid of the images. From Wednesday, at least half of the uploaded files for the 83+ were those stupid, (|2@ppy sports teams images - he seems to have gotten into minor league 5}{i+ now too. Its all freiking USELESS!

Looking at your program's list, it seems like you just program math stuff. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but even a large (with tact) math program would be a lot smaller than most of the good asm games.

well.. I dont program asm because I dont have enough time, but I do know that lots of times you can make an asm game that would be smaller than one that does the exact same thing, but it would also be way slower. AKA Ztetris (bigger) compared to Ztris (slower). So don't brag about these things here, because it does come close to talking about the TI-Keyboard.

Your right about smaller size games being a bit slower than the normal version, but this is not true for all of the games that I have ported.

Avalanche, blockdude, falldown, frogguts, tetris attack, dstar, insane game, the mad bomber, and yoshi are relatively fast even they are smaller than the version in the 86/asm/games section.

However, I have noticed that subhunt, duckhunt, centipede, elements, and lotus turbo challenge are a little bit slower than the other version.
