9001 signs you're addicted to calcs and Omni
« on: June 19, 2010, 11:18:57 am »
I thought it would be nice to revive that thread :P

Rule: read the previous posts before posting, to prevent the same signs from being posted multiple times!

Anyway here we go with 1000 signs that you are addicted to TI calculators and Omnimaga:

1-You always forget to close your quotes and parhentesises in sentences
2-You are no longer afraid to lose the game.
3-You always prefix short sentences with .db
4-When doing maths in school, you think with 2 byte integers concept in mind
5-You are so paranoid about TI bugs that you back everything up before every math classes
6-You put your school essays paragraphs inside Output(1,1,"" commands
7-You end them with Pause:ClrHome
8-Whenever you hear the word lobster, you become like "OMG! They know Netham45!'
9-Whenever you hear the word squirrel, you do the same but with Cooliojazz.
10-You always say "Ninja'd" when talking to people IRL after someone said something you were about to say.

You can say as many as you want per post, just don't double-post without 6 hours between posts and don't put like 800 signs in one post :P

In case you are wondering where I went, I am still active in the TI community, but I left Omni back in 2015 for various  reasons. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new online home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

11 - Every time you watch a video, you expect a rick-roll.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

12. When you calculator batteries die, you get new ones from the nearest battery-powered object.
13. When you have to write "inspire" in an essay, you write "nspire"
14. Same problem as 13, you write "ndless", not "endless"

Also, DJ, don't forget to indent you paragraph in Number 6, it should be Output(3,1,"" :).

15- You write things like 1000 to E3 and 0.1 to .1 for using less ink.

That's handy. j/k But I have some and I was stopped in a metal detector on a museums with my pockets full of AA and AAA rechargeable batteries (for various devices like my calc, mp3 player, camera, etc.) AND the re-charger.

30 - If you were in a spelling bee, you would say {Str1+X}= before every letter as you spelled your word. (X being the number of the letter you're on minus one)

31- When the teacher uses the CBR or CBL you wait for an opportunity to get technical details about it (copy the firmware, log link transfers, document the protocol)
32- The I/O port of your calculator is used for headphones and you listen to music
33- The USB port is used for USB flash drive and bluetooth (or wifi)
34- You type faster on your calculator than in cellphone or even computer
35- Your calculator has a patched TIOS and multi-boots with a 3rd party OS with multitasking, grayscale and sound.
36- During exams you code TI-BASIC for solving or checking ALL questions

37-You manage to code so fast that after the teacher resetted both your RAM and archive, you manage to write all math programs you need during the exam and still finish the exam in time.
38-You do not look at your calc keypad when typing on it (I do this x.x)
39-Same as #37, but in HEX ASM instead of BASIC

40- You have patched your TIOS to resist all resets and blocks of your evil teachers OR switch to the 3rd party OS (and I do not have inspiration for the teacher reaction)
41- There is an automatic full backup to flash drive every time you plug it in your calculator.

42 - You know where every single TI Basic command is on-calc, so you can quickly access it by quick number presses inside the menus.
43 - You know it's faster to access sub( by pressing "T" and going up than by pressing "S" and going down in the catalog.
44 - You end all of your essays with C9
45 - Press-To-Test is disabled on your calculator
46 - Your flash drive spends more time plugged into your calc than your computer
