ticalc.org Pending Files Reaches 1,000
Posted by Michael on 1 February 2003, 19:58 GMT

This morning ticalc.org's pending file queue reached 1,002 files, attaining an entirely new level of bloat.

Users visiting the File Upload Form were stunned with the news. From the inside of his Idaho retreat, TI-81 fanatic Brent Medelsvensson was seen wearing a tin-foil hat and shouting, "It's a conspiracy! They've been planning this ever since the pending load was 'heavy'!" After locking himself in his parents' bedroom, he could not be reached for further comment.

ticalc.org news editor Michael Vincent commented, "I have no knowledge of the whereabouts of the file archivers at this time." Off camera, he mumbled something about Pago Pago and grapefruit. Magnus Hagander, residing a short distance from the ticalc.org server, reported, "We've been told that the earthquakes are extending all the way into eastern Siberia."

Corresponding with this event, overworked monkeys on typewriters were seen to mysteriously print lists of ticalc.org staff members in no particular order.

Stay tuned to your Emergency Broadcast System for further details.

Yo how about some stats for the queue. What percentage is 83+ basic?

Also I am wondering how hard it could be to update programs to ticalc? If each archiver spent 10 minutes a day and only updated/uploaded 10 files, that would be 30 files a day.

well, because the monkeys are keeping the members of ticalc.org members awake at night (see way above for details), each member could spend 20 minutes a day and double the number of posts

Like I said before, everyone should upload their files to Calc.org instead.

If you reach a certain rank on your files, they get uploaded automatically. I got mine posted the same day I uploaded them.

Calc.org is like totally user-supported now.

or calcgames.org... we generally have files updated 10 to 20 minutes after they are uploaded (unless we're gone, asleep, or busy, which is very rare), and that will go much, much faster once we finish our new upload script.

Do you use a program to check them? Do you even check them? Well, 10-20 minutes seems like an odd sorta number, hehe. Also, didn't calc.org used to not censor programs at all?

Barret, how long do you think it will be until you release an update of SAS? It sounds like you have a whole lot of free time. BTW you know me as Digital.

This is a sad day in history. Can't you folk at Ticalc.org really do *NOTHING* about this situation? It would be nice to see the pending files queue at a number of 100-200. Will I live to see this day?

I doubt...

Ticalc.org has been my favorite for having massive Ti data that nobody in the world can compare to. I've been with you guys since 1997 and alot has changed since then. Hopefully this site will not fall as calc.org did. Do what you can and be well! Woohoo! Ticalc.org!!!

Do you guys get paid to hear all of these bull crap from someone else? If not, I salute to you guys.

I highly doubt that they are gonna hire someone whos first post is please hire me, they would probably choose someone pre-30000 member number, who they know something about. And while yes, my number is 36000 something, I also have an older account (PolarDev) That is older than no_ones_.
