More information on the TI-84 Plus CE by Sorunome
January 13, 2015, 04:43:18 pm

TI-84+CEAs TIs official page about the new TI-84+CE states it will be released in Spring 2015!
Features that are officially mentioned include:
  • Lighter and thinner than the other TI-8x models
  • Backlit color display
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Different colored cases
  • Same key layout as previous models / same use of OS

Other features found on various sources online:
  • Use of EasyData 5.0 --> possibly OS numbering of 5.x? (as pointed out here)
  • Use seems "very fast", as pointed out in a deleted Reddit comment --> maybe TI decided to use a ez80? Or, maybe to save production costs, they are using an ARM and are merely emulating the z80?
  • The model doesn't seem to have a 2.5mm I/O port anymore
  • 150KB of user RAM and 3.0MB of archive, according to Vernier

Information taken from Cemetech's news article and the sites it linked to. (Also used their image)

In response to this, the channels are currently invite-only pending changes to the botnet. This change should not affect regular users, but if you find yourself blocked, please use /knock or /msg to contact one of the following ops.

Project Periodical - Edition 2 by pimathbrainiac
January 01, 2015, 12:02:57 am

Hello, and welcome to Project Periodical Edition 2! Instead of being semi-monthly and including z80 or non-z80 programs, this edition and all future editions will be on the 1st of every month and include projects of every platform, on every major, predominately english-speaking forum with a focus on TI. And also on CodeWalrus
What does this mean? Omnimaga, Cemetech, and CodeWalrus projects will all be listed here, in one place, with links to every thread on every site where the projects are hosted. Also this means no screenies in the thread due to the sheer number of projects being posted, sorry D:
Also projects made specifically for contests and joke projects/programs are automatically disqualified from being in Project Periodical for space's sake (read: pimath is lazy and there are a ton of Contest #13 entries).

Now that that is out of the way, to the projects:

All I Want For Christmas Is... by AngelFish
December 19, 2014, 02:54:42 pm

Merry Christmas everyone! Or, depending on your particular bent, glad Yule, merry Yalda, joyous Ashura, happy Hanukkah, and if you happen to be a time traveling Roman who has learned how to use the internet, merry Saturnalia!

As many people are aware, the administrative team has been discussing some major changes due to recent events. This post is the first of these, to announce the staff reorganization.

We'd like to welcome the following members as our wonderful new Coders of Tomorrow:

Unfortunately, promotions require room to be made. The following people have agreed to step into new roles as CoT Emeriti:

Our beloved administrator Shmibs will be stepping down alongside the latter group. She has decided to pursue her lifelong dream of opening a cupcake shop in Canada. Although we hate to see her go, Canada has long suffered without a proper cupcake industry. Let us wish them the best of luck in rescuing our favorite country from its cupcake woes.

Have a happy holidays!
