Ticalc.org enter a new era (well, sort-of)
« on: December 07, 2009, 03:30:16 am »
Ok, so for those who don't know, before Ticalc.org, there was a site called The Unnoficial TI Calculator Home Page. This site opened around 1995, until Ticalc.org opens on 1996 Summer Solstice.

As you probably noticed, the TI community tends to get new members who are 13 years old when they start TI programming.

This means that Ticalc.org has entered, is entering or is soon going to enter a new era: The era of TI programmers who were not born when Ticalc.org started. :P

An historic curiosity I guess.

TI community without ticalc would be unrecognisable to who have seen it...

Before ticalc was founded, I think there was usenet groups (that can now be viewed on Google Groups I think) and there was a Calcs one I forgot the name of. I went there a year ago once and there were posts from 1991 I think

Wow, I didn't even realize that. Now I really feel old.  :o

It's kind of scary—the older I get, the faster time seems to go. I can hardly believe I've been on the ticalc.org staff for more than an entire year now. It really does not feel like it's been that long.
