Re: Brass - 1.0.5.3 update [06/02/2014]

Brass is now open source and hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/benryves/Brass I've been loath to touch the code since switching development efforts over to Brass 3 as it was not very well written in the first place (it was my first project in C#) and I never used source control so didn't want to ...

[Staff] TIWiFiModem: Take your TI-83 Plus online

Ever since I first saw Telnet83+ I was intrigued with the idea of taking a calculator online, but never had the equipment (dial-up modem, phone line and "graylink" serial cable) to make it all work. Fortunately you can now get inexpensive WiFi-enabled microcontroller modules and there are ...

Re: Where did everyone go?

Hi Patori, good to see you're still around and I hope you're well! I work as a web developer but still dabble with programming older Z80 systems and hacking around with electronics for fun when I have the opportunity. Sadly I haven't done much on the calculator front for a long time after my TI-83 P...

That looks great! Very nice work and it's always impressive to see the creative ways you're able to make the most of the calculator's capabilities. :)

Source code release and "Demo 8".

I've dug around the dustier corners of my hard disk drive and uploaded the source code for this project to https://github.com/benryves/Nostromo After transferring to GitHub I cloned the project locally and tried building it; I was able to compile "Demo 8" which is a minor bugfix from the g...

Re: COVID-19 - Check-in

Long time no see, currahee, hope you've been well! My girlfriend's an optometrist and so also had her first jab last week (Pfizer) but only had a sore arm for a day or so afterwards. It's the people I know who've had the AstraZeneca one that seem to be more prone to feeling unwell afterwards, but fo...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

That's looking great, tr1p1ea, can't wait to see how it turns out! :) Would it be revealing your secrets too much to describe the algorithm you're using? I'm interested in how the resolution drops as you get further down the screen - is that a limitation of the algorithm or a concession to performan...

Re: The void of space ...

Nice to see that you've compiled what you had into an interesting repository, Timendus. :) Thank you for sharing that! I do like BBC BASIC (generally, not so much my calculator version) but in retrospect it was a poor fit for the TI calculator. It feels too much like a "computer" BASIC and...

Love the screenshot, DJ_O! :lol: Good to hear you're still around Timendus! :) Unfortunately I can't help with Vera and the only files I can find on my hard disk are a few test XML files output by veradoc and a screenshot of the SVN repository, sorry. I'm glad tr1p1ea was able to recover something m...

Re: Hi all

Ben, I'm unconvinced by your excuse as calculators are cheap on ebay! :-) (Still amazed that the ancient ti-83, which costs almost nothing to produce still goes for $100+... Talk about a cash cow for TI!) Oh, all right then, you convinced me. :) I hope you got your commission from the seller! 20200...

Re: Hi all

Glad to hear you're doing well and keeping yourself busy with interesting projects, Duck! My day job is still PHP web development, it keeps me busy but isn't particularly aligned with my interests in the more tangible or interactive side of computing. I still tinker with electronics and older comput...

Looks good, tr1p1ea! Are the tiles/character designs based on another version or are they original for this version?

Re: Other places to discuss TI calcs

Ah I see. Strange. But again, CodeWalrus also has a plugin that prevents anyone with zero post from posting external links. [...] If you had such plugin in addition to Stop Forum Spam, maybe it could help? We manually approve all registrations, and those are still clearly from spammers. The problem...

Re: Other places to discuss TI calcs

Yeah I remember that registrations were disabled due to spambots and lack of a proper anti-spam. I integrated Stop Forum Spam into the board registration system myself, but a few spammers still slip through and it was at the point where we had received no genuine registrations for months but lots o...
