Great poll idea. I've always wanted to know this. And from looking at the poll results so far, apparently, people tend to download it more than once (as the statistics would imply).

As for myself, I've only downloaded it once. Wow. What a loser. ;-)

Only downloading it once is kind of hard to do! Well done. How much do you use it though? I have it going at least 4 days a week.

I used it pretty often, especially when programming. I don't have it on this computer (the one I typically use) yet because I was always under the impression that it didn't run properly under XP. However, I never actually tried it to find out, myself. If it DOES run on XP then I'll have two downloads, shortly.

Ooh... I'll need to copy all of my ROM images over to this computer, too... O:-)

I wasn't able to get it to work on ANY version of windows. For some weird reason it works on GNU/Linux.

98 worked fine for me. I haven't tried XP cause on this computer (the one with XP) I don't store any important files or do any important work (i.e. programming) so... Yeah.

Hmmm ok this is what you should do (supposing your're talking about the TI-83+ SE, that's what you told me at school).

1. Go to TI's website and d/l the Flash SDK and install it.

2. Use VTI 3.0 alpha; if you use VTI 2.5 beta, you'll have to use OS 1.12 and below.

3. In the Flash SDK directory, click on the "Exe" directory and run FlashSim.exe.

4. Click on "New" in the Files menu and select either TI-73, TI-83+, or TI-83+ SE.

5. Then, save the file to the SAME directory as VTI.

6. Run vti83.exe in the VTI directory and viola it should work!

7. To run apps and programs using VTI, you must load it in FlashSim.exe...look under the menu item "Load" and select Application for App and RAM file for program.

If this doesn't work for you I can always burn my copy of VTI and give it to you at school...

I've downloaded it once at everytime I reinstalled windoze in the last 5 years. I've installed 2K twice, 98SE a coupla times, and 95 on an old laptop. I'm sure I've downloaded VTI about 7 or 8 times.

I've downloaded it numerous times just to use it in school when I forgot my calculator...I had to do it every time because the computers delete everything you put on them when you logout... :(

So go get a floppy disk. You must have one with the ROM anyway.

Not really, since you can download every ti-rom from the web if you've been around long enough and know where to look

By TI roms do you mean operating systems? If so where can you dowload them?

You are not suppossed to download the roms unless you own that calculator and are incapible of getting the rom from your calculator, such as I do because I have a USB link and have not yet seen a program which will rip the roms off of a calculator hooked up to a USB link.

You can download them from www.ti.com/calc directly, but some of the OS's are "too advanced" for VTI, so you have to send an email to their customer service to get a previous version (I saved my email from them so that I can get the roms I need for VTI whenever I want). I believe the VTI readme has a section telling which ROMs are compatible, but I'm not quite sure...

Same here, I must've downloaded VTI dozens of times. I used it daily and took a week or two to bypass the logon script that wiped the only dir where I could write in the first place (it forgot to use /f, oops ;) ).
Besides, why bother searching through backups when experience taught you to type "start iexplore www.ticalc.org/pub/win/vti.zip" very quickly? LOL

School computers suck. At my school, they're so paraniod that FORTRES gets rid of the active window buttons (is that what they're called?). I have to use ALT+TAB to switch between windows. But, there's also a good side. FORTRES only blocks the folders from being clicked on in explorer, so I can give it a filepath and go wherever I want.

Your school uses FORTRES? 120d//!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our school used to use that. I don't know if it was the way they set it up or if it was the program itself, but that program was completely worthless. You could get around it and do just about whatever you wanted at any time. They set it to block almost everything on the computers (it was ridiculous), but it didn't take me long to figure out how to bypass most of the annoyances.

Like the one you listed--if you open IE and type in C:, then there you are. You have access to the C drive.

Hey, are you able to boot from a disk? If so, deleting Fortres isn't very difficult ;-) *whistles*

And another tip...if you have, like, 20 windows open (or some other big number) and accidentally pass the one you want, just hit ALT+SHIFT+TAB to go back...I could use a computer without a mouse with all the shortcuts I know...and probably a computer with ONLY a mouse too, but typing using copy and paste would be difficult... ;)

Well, you could always use the on-screen keyboard.

Actually, I'm using it right now, just to try it. :)

Start > Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard. (I think it's only in WinXP)

Ugh... typing with that is horrendous.

Wow...that IS bad...especially with the horrible "roller-ball" mice my school has...I get, like 2 keystrokes in 3 seconds...that means with an average of about four letters per word (five with the space) I would get...7.5 seconds per word, so...eight words per minute! That's horrible...I get like...120-150 (that's 120 through 150...not minus ;D) when I type!

Well, roller-ball mice suck anyways! :-D With a normal mouse, it's actually not that bad when I try the on-screen keyboard, but still nothing like typing using the real keyboard.

120 to 150? That's fast! I think the fastest I've gotten up to is 125, but I think I average around 100wpm or so when I'm not going for speed. I make a LOT of typos when I type as fast as I can, so I typically slow it down a bit to keep my accuracy up.

And I've said this before, but I think it's impressive... I've clocked myself to get 60wpm(!!!!) on my TI-89, using the text editor (no, not using the TI-Keyboard :)). It must be from writing all those notes in class with it. (It's _great_ for passing notes because if it IS confiscated, the teacher won't be able to read what you were writing (if you use a few tricks, that is) :D)

>> if you use a few tricks that is
What, you mean the "CLEAR" button? ;)
But yeah...I get 120-150, but that's with LOTS of errors. To type error free I usually have to slow it down to like...80 or 90

I like the UNIX style of copy and past -- simply select the text to copy, and middle click to paste. Once I got used to it, I really begain to love it. The only downside is that it is hard to select something, then replace it with what you had previously selected. 120d

I agree. That and enter-to-focus are two of the most useful features that Micro$oft hasn't co-opted yet. I guess they would confuse people too much (or so they think).

Other features: virtual desktops, focus-without-raise, etc. Haven't time at the moment.

Yeah... Back in Windows 3.1 it was typically easier to switch between windows with Alt-Tab than it was to minimize everything and look for their icons on the desktop.

Back then, the only icons on the desktop were for currently running programs which were minimized.

The 'task bar' didn't exist, but there were add-on programs you could use to replace / supplement Program Manager that gave you a clickable list of running programs.

Yeah, funny to say, I miss the 'old' Windows sometimes.

then you would die at the site of the 'new' windows. Microsoft is attempting to get rid of the old interface, keep the same search angine, leave the hidden accounts, and keep it so that even the guest account will be able to edit the registry keys, not to mention that they still woun't document the fact that you can give the guest account a password.
