I own an 84+SE TI-84+ SE and a prizm Very Happy
my current project is a game like this
Welcome to Cemetech, Turiq! I had tried to hail you on SAX a few times, but it was in the pre-SAX highlight popup days, so I don't think that you noticed. You own a Prizm?? Are you considering doing any work on Prizm C programs here to complement the rest of our Prizm development underway? Smile I look foward to seeing what you come up with.

Short Intro

Started out calculator geeking with a HP-33e, I used that in high school for a while, and then replaced with a HP15C in college, followed by a 41C, as well as a Sharp PC1500 pocket computer, with the cool plotter/printer. Should have kept that one. Continued playing with HP calculators after graduating, and have accumulted a fair number of HP calcs. I also have a TI-85 and a TI-89. I've played a little with the Project Euler problems, solving them with HP calculators, seems like an interesting activity.
Very nice, and kudos on the HP background. Our HP users are few and far between.

I've just recently started playing around with Arduino's and XBee's, so I'm pretty much a newbie there. I saw the Calcnet mentioned in Hack-a-Day, and wandered on over.
Great, I'm glad to hear that our publicity over my projects generated a few new faces. Smile

I'm not much of a programmer, I'm much more comfortable building hardware. I'm sure I can put together a ti-serial <--> XBee hardware, probably powered by 2 AA's, but the software on the TI calculator side to drive it, I'm clueless...
I hope that you can indeed help with that, and I appreciate the feedback that you have been giving thus far. I needed someone to push me to make progress on the wireless aspect. At any rate, welcome, and be sure to post in Your Projects (or Electronics) about whatever of your own electronics projects you have going on!

Hello everybody!

I am very new to all forms of programming, but eager to learn all there is to know! I have done some very basic work with C in a brief project programming robots. I have no experience with BASIC other than what I have learned in the past week fiddling around with my TI-84 Plus. I am currently working on a game for my calculator (tantamount to some sort of text adventure), something simple to start to get my arms around basic logic and syntax. As I said, I am a beginner with this, but I would be glad to help anyone in whatever way I can.

Aussi, je parle fran├žais assez bien.
This sounds great! I look forward to you learning from us and teaching us what you can. We work in many many different languages, including of course C and BASIC, so I hope you'll stick around and participate in the dialog. Smile
Welcome to Cemetech, everyone! I hope you enjoy our forum and the people we have here, and I'm sure you will learn stuff about whatever languages you are learning. Granted some of that may be force-fed, but it is great info all the same. Also, and projects you are working on can, and should, be posted in the Your Projects section so we can Oooh, Ahhh at them. And there is the Programming section where you can ask for help Smile
Hi there people, I'm new to this site, and _player1537 talked me into making an introduction post Razz .

I'm a 17 year old guy from the Netherlands. I'm about to do my finals for something thats equivalent to High School (I think).
Next year I'll do a bachelor Electrical Engineering at the Technological University in Delft.

I got on Cemetech to compile a 83/84+ program. I had a local Compiler, but it messed up when using multiple spaces.
The program in question is this one:
http://sc.cemetech.net/?xpi=2d5f5b782080d9acdb71d13a375eba79
It's a Mathematics cheat-sheet, that uses some quite advanced rendering. The text is in Dutch though, so I doubt it will be very useful for you.The program reuses some work of other programmers, though its mostly my code.

I know quite a lot about TI BASIC, but not the really advanced stuff. (assembly, shells etc.)
Then I know a bit of C++, and sniffed at JavaScript and VBS.

Kerm, the founder, is also doing Electrical Engineering (if I'm not mistaken) and is done with one(?) PHD for it. Also, you are older than me by 2 years Smile

I think I've seen that compiler before, what was its name? Also, I know I mess up a lot, so it might not be called a "compiler". Don't take my word for it, though Razz

I'll have to look at it later, thanks for sharing. If you have any other projects you would like to share, they can be posted in the Your Projects subforum.

Another Dutch speaker Very Happy I think there are a few other native Dutch speakers, though their names escape me.

Quite a few people here know TI Basic, and many of us know Assembly. KermMartian is the one who made one of the best shells we have, DCS, so maybe you could ask him for some help if you need it. (Though there are others who make shells, his is just one of the most memorable.) Are you planning on learning Assembly? It is a great language to learn, imho Smile

Are you planning on learning more C++ or Javascript? If so, you could ask questions in the Programming > General subforum, as many people (myself included) have done Smile There are quite a few here who are very skilled with C++ and Javascript. What is VBS? Visual Basic Studio?

All in all, welcome here, Mippie Smile It is great to have you, and I hope you post about your projects and ask for help Smile

TI-coder 1.0, it's quite well known I believe.

For now, I'm concentrating on my finals. After that, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with regard to programming. I know that my bachelor includes a whole lot of programming(including learning several languages), so I guess that will keep me pretty occupied.

Thanks for the introduction!
Welcome to Cemetech, Mippie! I hope you have a great time here. Smile

For on-computer, off-line coding of TI Basic, I would recommend Merth's Tokens.

Also, good luck with finals Smile

TU Delft is a pretty good school. If you are interested in radio, see if Dr. R.B. Staszewski is looking for help. He's done some really groundbreaking work in designing Cellular radios in CMOS digital processes.

Excellent! I have two EE degrees, and it's a great field. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about it.

If SourceCoder is working well for you, then great. If not, feel free to post a thread in the SourceCoder subforum requesting assistance.

Great! We have a lot of coders familiar with all those languages, and plenty of people who are trying to learn them as well, so I look forward to us being able to assist and accept your assistance respectively.
I go by richfiles online, my name is Richard, and I maintain "The Richfiles" webpage. My page covers some vintage (aka, 1990s era) TI graphing calculator hacks, and some simple robotics. I'm mostly a hardware guy, enjoying digital logic design and neural networks. I'll admit I don't have a lot of experience with modern software methods. I do know TI-BASIC, and have created a few pieces of software in the past for the TI-82 and TI-85.

I have been busy lately, but my most recent hobby is collecting vintage calculators. I have over 100 individual machines, and yes, I know I should be putting pictures and data up on my website someday. I have a couple from the 1960s, including an SCM Cogito 240SR, which has NO CHIPS at all. It relies on resistor diode logic for AND and OR logic, a diode ROM matrix, and transistors for inverters, buffers, and flip flops. It uses a magnetostrictive delay line memory, which is a coil of wire with a pair of transducers, one at each end. the sending unit generates a twist in the wire to represent bits, and that twist flows to the end of the wire as a wave, and is picked up by the other transducer. The unit uses a bit serial architecture, and displays results on a CRT. It handles overflows very uniquely, with decimal shifting and a pattern of "underline" indicators to indicate how many of the least significant digits are clipped off the result, the pattern loops, and you can effectively go indefinitely. As long as you keep track of the underline patterns, you can keep track of how many places to shift the decimal.

I've also been playing with the logic creation tools in the PS3 game Little Big Planet 2. A number of people have created ALUs, and one individual has assembled an entire computer. I'm playing with the logic to try to create a calculator, and personally, created some very nice LED dot style decimal and hexadecimal displays in game. I have also created an ALU myself in the game.

I have some ANITA calculator display boards, and hope to also build a Nixie tube adder using the boards (unmodified). I'll use rotary telephone dials for number input, and there will be a series of tubes (haha) as pulse amplifiers to handle carry pulses and dial pulses for incrementing the displays. The boards use neon thyratron tubes to create a decade counter.

So, yeah... I like old calculators.

I'm cool with that! Graphing Calculator
Hi! I'm jhgenius and I found this topic with the help of DoorsCS.
I'm a 16 year old Australian who knows a lot of calc languages, but I'm not exactly an expert on ANY of them.
Back in 2008 I got my cousin's old Casio CFX-9850. I self-taught how to understand the language and would print out codes for games from the internet to type onto my calculator (no link you see).
At the start of 2010 I got a TI-nspire as part of the school booklist and I began programming on that. I was quite disappointed that the programming capabilities of the new calc weren't nearly as flexible as the Casio. In a few months I had made my own TI-nspire BASIC game, Jason's TI-nspire Hold 'em which is available on ticalc.org. I began some other projects and then discovered omnimaga.org. I signed up in September 2010 and except for a period of relative inactivity between December 2010 and March 2011 I have posted over 500 posts there. I also discovered cemetech soon after omnimaga.org but was too involved with omnimaga.org at the time. Now I have come to cemetech.net and have officially signed up to be part of the great community here as well!
Also recently I have begun to try and learn Axe Parser for the TI-84+ Family in order to participate in Contest #1 this year at omnimaga.org. This is kind of hard as I don't actually own an 84+ and no keypad either, but I hope to submit a decent game in about 7 weeks so wish me good luck on that! It would be great if I got some advice or tutorials on Axe Parser across the calculator online community.

Oh that's right! Before recently I hadn't been on cemetech.net much, just a bit of a glance I guess. Then for Axe Parser I used SourceCoder a bit. I guess that reignited my interest

That's all I have for now. If I remember to put something else in I'll come back and update my post.

jhgenius Wink
Glad to see you here! The community looks forward to project updates! Feel free to make a topic about your contest entry as others from Omnimaga have done here, over in the "Your Projects" category.

Do you have any hobbies outside programming? Band, sports, etc?
Hi im dudes of power, I am taking a java class and am having issues with a program, I am slightly new, I used to come here somewhat often but then stopped.
Hello, dudesofpower! Very Happy What other programming languages and platforms are you interested in? And, enjoy your stay Wink
Well if you call html a programming language then ...html, anything really, i want to learn web languages to start doing web design however.
dudesofpower, HTML is a markup language, since it describes how things look rather than how things are manipulated, but it's still a step in the right direction. Smile

jhgenius, Great to see you introduce yourself here! I've tried to poke you a few times from SAX, our chat widget, but I don't think that you have noticed. Smile As comicIDIOT suggested, you should post a Your Projects thread about your contest entry (as well as about any other projects that you may currently have underway). Have you considered getting a Casio Prizm, since you have some experience with the very similar (but non-color) fx9850?

richfiles, it is absolutely superb to see you around here! Your pages and projects gave me tons of inspiration for my early hardware and hacking projects back in the day, and I hope you'll stick around and continue to tell us all about your modern projects. Smile
Hi, richfiles! I don't know you in person, but I recognize you from reading your messages on the ticalc.org mailing list archive years ago (back when it was actually public). It's really neat to see you still into calculators after all these years.

Collecting calculators is a cool hobby. I remember reading about the CRT/delay-line calculator you mentioned and even reading an interview from one of the designers once. Pretty fascinating stuff.

And hi everyone else who has introduced themselves. Smile
I'd be interested to see those articles if they happen to be online (or a vague remembrance of what periodicals might have contained said articles?), Travis. I'll have to take a look through the old mailing lists one of these days; although I started posting on ticalc.org in 2001 or 2002 and had definitely hung around there since 2000 at the latest, I never really participated in or read through the mailing lists. Sad
They've unfortunately been buried in some dark, non-public corner of the server filesystem under a six-inch layer of dust for several years now. I once asked Magnus about making them once again available as a static-content archive and he said he didn't see a problem with that, but nothing ever happened. Sad Maybe one of these days that can be something to revisit.
