You cannot. You manually (by pressing buttons on your calculator) need to enter programs.

Please don't triple-post. There is an edit button on your posts.

To answer:
Unfortunately, you have to type out the program manually on the 81.
As Juju said above, you will need to type it in manually in the program editor on your calc.
The TI-81 does not have a link port.
You will manually need to copy (write) the programs on your calculator.
You cannot. You manually (by pressing buttons on your calculator) need to enter programs.

For the TI-81 (for the fifth time), you won't be downloading programs to the calculator.

I don't get the poll. The best way? or the Best way to learn?
And yes the TI-81 does not have a link port. even it if did (for the 6th time) you would still need a cable to connect to the computer which I doubt you have.
and stop the dam triple posting you have been warned more than once.
Maybe read the forum rules. It helps clear up things in general

Not sure if trolling, or new to the internet.  (all your meme are belong to us)

Lets give him the benefit of the doubt.  it says his email is hidden, but that may just be because i have a standard account here.  Maybe it would be beneficial sending him an email asking what language he speaks and such, then use Google Translate into the 5 main languages (German, japanese, english, spanish, french)?


Edit: I'm resisting the urge to double post :/

I believe link port came first with ti-82. So you'll have to type your program manually.
EDIT: 5 people already mentioned it O.o I really should learn to read the previous posts.

* DJ_O lost The Game from this post

Anyway when asking question it's generally a good idea to be patient and if you have to add anything new to your post you can edit them. It's also a good idea to write your questions clearly so people can help you easier. :)

@Xeda: He can't respond to PM's. He doesn't have enough posts.

@dl:If you have specific questions please feel free to ask. As many others have mentioned the TI-81 is old and there is no way to download games to it. If you want to put games on it you would have to find a copy of the game's code and type it in line by line using the program editor. The program editor can be found by pressing the PRGM button. Choose a program space 1-0 or A-Z and press the right arrow key to highlight edit. Press enter and this will open up the program editor. This is where you go to type in programs.

In the future please try to use better punctuation and grammar in order to make your posts as clear as possible. Give people time to respond to your questions. Do not continually post several messages in a row. This is know as double posting or triple posting(or more) and is not allowed unless you have something largely significant to add or 24 hours has passed since your last post. There is a "modify" button in the top right-hand corner of your post that allows you to change your post or add additional thoughts. Please use this instead of making several posts in a row. Thanks.

 -Art

*edit* I also changed your topic title. That way it is more clear what exactly you need help with.

It seems he suddenly stopped posting, although he might only get on at certain times.

I'm not too sure if he was just trying to troll, or just not reading posts.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...
