Yeah, awesome if you can buy new calculators every time you use it. Basically, you get blue by overloading your LCD, which is such a good idea it's going straight to the top of this Routines list.

it doesn't!!! it switches the contrast between high and low which your eyes interpret as blue.

I dunno, according to the thread all you do is use xLib's contrast changer, which apparently does no harm... right?

Here, as an example of what this thread is supposed to prevent, I'll ask a question (that I really do want someone to answer):
"I'm too lazy to use the search button (but not too lazy to add in extra typing of asking this question), so, how do you get blue by overloading your LCD (not the contrast way)?" </Stupidity> ...okay, maybe not

Why would anyone ask any type of question relating to color about BASIC??? (We're assuming that they're slightly n00bish since they didn't search)

Sad thats mean. But, I actually did search, and all I keep finding about the blue scale is people saying switching contrast screws it up, and then people saying it doesn't. But I haven't seen one saying what really does mess it up, so I have to assume that the contrast does mess it up even though I don't see how...
but this is totally off-topic, so I'll shut up now

there are different ways of achieving blue. lcd test mode fries your screen. switching contrast quickly does not. end of discussion.

Thank you! we should probably add something about that to the "blue scale" links

About the blue, an easy way to flash the screen is like:
[font="courier new;font-size:9pt;line-height:100%;color:darkblue"]
For(B,1,X
For(A,0,39
real(5,0,A
End
End

where X is some number.

I went through the Math & Science, Miscellany, and Games categories to further reorganize the routine links, primarily replacing related post links in the same topic with just a link to the topic itself (*tip of the hat to Xphoenix*). In addition, I noticed some more duplicate sets of topics that should be deleted (Gamma Function, Displaying Fractions) and also removed Calculating Constants and replaced it with just the individual constants.

My list below is the routines that I changed the links for. When an admin sees this, can they please update the respective routines in the respective categories and then reply back. Thank you. (And if you see anything that I messed up on or could be improved further, please tell me.)

</div>


Math & Science

  • Quadratic Equation ( 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 )

  • Euler-Phi Function ( 1 )
  • Moebius Function ( 1 )
  • Rref with Work ( 2 )
  • The Sierpinski Triangle ( 1 )

EDIT: I forgot to remove Simon Says, Lightning, Making Sudoku, and Making Memory off the Games list. In addition, the link for Lingo should be just to the topic and then you can change the name to Making Lingo, and Guessing Game was changed to the more appropriate Guess The Number. Sorry for all the trouble. :biggrin:

There were mistakes aplenty. ;)

Following the logic of your edits, I was able to finish everything past the second half of the first list at full speed, only I probably have to go back and replace some missing links for showtopic=25 (a disclaimer would have been nice).

I suggest linking only to the first of the related posts instead of just to the topic itself. I've done the former for now.

Capitalization on these entries:

  • Calculating E
  • Rref with Work
  • Finding Sides Or Angles Of Triangles
  • Checking For An Integer
  • etc.
It just seems a bit off to me. I'd prefer to have the "E" as the constant "e", "Rref" in either all caps or none, and conjunctions in the lower case.

Finally, do you mind if I alphabetize the lists?

I tried to do my best reading through the respective links/topics, but after a while reading all the text just becomes like a blur (that's probably why noone else bothered with creating a routines list Very Happy). The mistakes and lack of "showtopic=25" disclaimer are the result. Sorry about that.

My goal with capitalization was to be consistent. I decided to capitalize all the text in the routine titles, including the insignificant text (a, an, of, etc.) and the symbols and commands with that goal in mind. I realized after reading through the list once it was posted, that capitalizing everything doesn't really look very good and actually hurts readability, so please do change it as you see fit.

Likewise with alphabetizing the lists, if you think that makes sense, change it. While you are alphabetizing the lists, some of the routine titles seem unnecessarily long or somewhat misleading, so if you can come up with something more concise and relevant, please do. Before I forget, I just want to say thanks for all the hard work you're putting into it, because I realize it's a rather tedious job.

A promise is a promise. I'll work on that next time I awaken.
