Nope, never received any sort of monetary compensation for putting games/programs on any calculator. Though there are quite a few people who seem to have a high opinion of me now...

I'll admit I've made a dollar or two from a few people. I only charge if someone I don't know comes up to me and says, "OMG GIVE ME GAMES CUZ YOU'RE NERDBOY LOLOL KTHX". Since I don't have an 83+, which is what they typically are requesting games for, I have to take the calc home, download the games, and send them, which takes work. It's worth it to them to pay a couple of bucks to not have to pay attention in math any more. Close friends and TI-89 users get games for free.

That's a good point, I'd rather charge money from people who make fun of me and then add on, "Oh, by the way, can you put games on my calculator?" but I usually still don't. I'd rather just screw their calc up and leave it to them to figure it out. :)

There's this great fake virus scanner program I found for the 86 that tells you that it's "found" ~500 viruses and that you need to clear your memory. Anything like that for the 83+? :-D

I'll agree with that.

There is a lot of high quality freeware and charging for your distribution effort is petty when you consider how much effort authors put into thier software. If you really like certain programs, but charge others to put those programs onto their calcs I would consider that wrong.

But if you are asked to go out of your way to distribute programs you don't care for, for a calc you don't have that is not reasonable.

Good point...I might charge if some total idiot wanted me to load his calc with games or something. :-D

I thought it might be funny to start a trend...whenever someone says something stupid that was intended to be a joke, just say "lol" (pronounced "lawl") instead of laughing to make them feel good...or if they try REALLY hard, they might get a "rofl" ("rah-ful")...or maybe just saying "semi-colon close parenthesis" which is ":)"

That should have been ";)" unless you were trying to say "colon close parenthesis"

I was going to say "colon close parenthesis", but then I didn't so much like the word "colon".... :) BTW, is this a button: (: :) j/k ^o^

Why don't you like the word colon?

I never thought of it as being a button. It is meant to be two smiley faces... like a new set of parentheses. If you are going to put something in parentheses, instead of using "(" and ")", use "(:" and ":)", or ":(" and "):" depending on the situation.

Sad:
:( I'm sad...):

Happy or anything else:
(: I'm happy or anything else :)

(: I know it's corny. :)

What about the puckering emoticon :* ? It would be pronounced "colon splat". How do you like THAT? >:->

Pronounce these pseudo-emoticons too:
:^ (bent nose and no mouth?), pronounced "colon caret"
:# (brace face?), "colon hash" (smuggling drugs maybe?)
:. (small mouth?), "colon stop" (you get the idea)
:' (long nose?), "colon tick" (ouch)
:! (smoking a cigarette?), "colon bang"

Ok, I'll stop now.

Or if someone says or does something offensive or gross, you can just say "XP" (pronounced "ex-pee"). That's an emoticon going "bleah!". It's like that operating system I keep hearing about...

I agree with the part about WinXP, but let's NOT turn this into another windows vs. anti-windows flamewar.

No. We can turn it into a civil discussion about the technical merits of Windows. I do have to admit that XP as an emoticon is cross-eyed with its tongue hanging out. That is sort of funny.

"Experience the best. Experience Windows XP. (TM)"

Why must you be so contradictory? XP

I'm not being contradictory. It's the best, not the realization of the technical and interface potential of the PC.

I do that too! Even more sad, I've actually said "BRB" to my mom before. I think it went something like this: "Hey mom, BRB, I'm going to get a drink ... did I just say BRB? LOL" I also pronounce it "lawl" and say it in normal conversation, sometimes, without realizing it. :-\ This is a common one: "Yeah, lol" (and then my friend comments on how pathetic I am). I've even said "120d" in conversations before.

/me is sad

P.S. That just reminded me... I say "/me" [sometimes I don't say the slash, but I think it ;-)] quite a bit as well.

Last spring, I met a girl whilst on vacation. I was enjoying getting to know her. Then she said "oh-em-gee". This made me very sad. The end.

She actually said "oh-em-gee"!? That's hilarious...except for the fact that the only girl that has ever talked to you is probably cheating on you with some person in a chat room that says he's really hot, but really he's not, and whenever she asks him to send pictures of himself, he just searches in google image search "hot guy" and finds a picture to send...not that *I* do that...uh...yeah...:/...j/k ;)
