Something: indeed, no Python for you on your slightly too old 83PCE / 84+CE.
Anyway, due to highly insufficient hardware, TI's implementation of Python for the 83PCE EP is pretty much the weakest one across all graphing calculator models, only good for relatively simple algorithmics-oriented programs.

Į\_(ツ)_/Į Well, I wouldn't have upgraded anyways. I'm assuming the ARM co-processor is what makes it so much faster.
Any other updates? What are we doing to try and come to terms with TI? What are people doing to try and spread the word? Is there any plan?

I've been doing my best, making articles, making a video, posting around reddit but I feel as though I'm doing it alone. Especially since I only made my reddit account a few days ago, my low karma and unknown reputation have made it exceedingly difficult to promote my video (I'm recognized as a 'website with a reddit account' right now; this got me banned from r/gadgets). When I create original articles, it gets taken down by low-karma-moderation bots. When the article is manually approved 26 hours later, dozens of new articles bury mine and it's never seen. This just happened to my article on r/education. I need help from those who have been around reddit longer, have more karma, and have a good reputation to spread articles and the news to educators!

I know we got our wave of press when the news finally got picked up by tech channels but I think we've been targeting the wrong people. Sure a lot of tech people saw this news but how many teachers and educators that actually have big influence over TI saw it? I believe we need to try and inform the teachers out there about this ordeal and explain why TI's action is unjust and what they can do to help us. But I need to know that there's people out there willing to help me; otherwise it feels like I'm fighting a lost cause.
Iím willing to help, I just donít know what I should be doing. A coordinated effort by people from Cemetech,
TI-Planet, TI-Calc, and other calculator websites could be a good idea.
TI-Planet is already showing a warning in the header of every page.

This was a great idea, and I think that it will work well for people who visit TI-Planet. The issue is that for people (mostly students) who donít, they will likely never receive the information and could make the mistake of upgrading. I donít know what the best way to combat this is, but it may be worth discussion.
CodeWalrus also started showing strong warnings on every page approximately at the same time as TI-Planet did, AFAICT.
And yes, many - probably most - students won't receive the information until it's too late for them, despite the community members' best efforts. Users will have to rely on exploits (when they're available), just like Nspire users have been doing for a decade.
