I may not be correct.
On my 84+ revision H, one second is For(A,1,1000
I believe on an 83+, one second is For(A,1,100
Test this out. My TI83 has the black screen issue and I can't test. Graphing Calculator
Below code is for a TI84+.

Code:
For(A,1,1000
Disp
End

For a TI83+, use this.

Code:

For(A,1,100
Disp
End
Keep in mind, the timing might be slightly different if you actually add the closing parentheses to the For loops. If I recall correctly, false conditionals are affected by that.

Also, welcome!
Ah, got it. I'd ditch closing parentheses to save a few bytes over timing. Makes things easier; you can have more RAM for other things.
You may want to use rand to make a timing delay, that command takes a bit of time and is only 1 byte, and it is often used to do just that, so I guess by very unofficial convention it would be preferred... so like

Code:
rand(50)

And then you adjust the number to get the desired delay. If you didn't know, doing rand(n) will create a list of n random numbers between 0 and 1
Also, it's important to note that on the ti-84PCE and ti-83 Premium CE, there is the "Wait" command, which allows you to insert a delay.

Code:
Wait 1

The above code waits 1 second and moves on.
There is also the Pause command which can support 2 arguments, the first being something you want displayed, and the second being a delay. If you set the first argument to an empty list, it will display nothing and simply wait for the delay.

Code:
Pause "",1

However, I believe this was added fairly recently and therefore, might not work if you are running on an older OS.
I quickly tried the rand( trick. It works beautifully. I also tried the Pause "",1 wait code. It threw syntax errors. Good to have a smaller wait loop. Thanks.

This is because Pause can take output arguments, but only one. Pause is a variant of Disp that outputs the argument and then waits for [ENTER]. However, Pause can only take one argument to output, whereas Disp can take practically infinite arguments. I think that replacing
Code:
Pause "",1
with
Code:
Pause ""
will achieve the desired effect.

Heh, OS 5.1.5 came out in January 2016, that's getting old Very Happy

On the graphing calculator timescale, that brand new Razz they are still selling the ti-83 plus that was released in 1999 Evil or Very Mad

In the past, the Pause command could only take one argument, however, in the past year or two, the newer OS supports 2 arguments. The first one for displaying stuff and the 2nd one for a delay.
Then again, I use a monochrome TI84. 2.55MP doesn't want to accept two Pause inputs.
