85. Instead of writing "Let x=..." you write (BASIC) Define x=...,(C) int x; x=...;
86. You write out "5^6", with the "^" symbol (I have acutally done this one before)
87. Your teacher relies on you to teach them how to do things on a calculator
88. You can't sleep until you fix all bugs in your programs
89. You spend all of your free time in school programming
90. You can amaze people with stupid math programs (like a quadratic solver)

91. You can program 10 hours per day even with school and a job. (true story. I did this in 2002 and 2003)
92. When rounding stuff in math, you use round(0, and sometimes screw up and misuse int( instead.

93. your teacher yells at you for not paying attention, (while you were programing on your calculator ), then he/she asks you to repeat what the said. You repeat what they said verbatim, and then go back to programming.

94. Long ago the labels on the keys wore off. You have yet to notice, and keep on touch-programming, not even looking at the screen.

I'll put it online when it does something.

95. You are IMMUNE to the effects of a Rick roll.
96. You consider Rick Astley a deity.
97. You fear the day the lobster army will invade. >_>
98. When you visit a local electronics store you *ALWAYS* go and browse their graphic calculator section.
99. You know the native resolutions of all or most TI calculator models.
100. You daydream about how you are going to fix/optimize code when at work or at school.

*Edit* Awesome thread guys, I find too many of them true... O_o

101: You write absolute value signs with abs() instead of | |.
102: You use the calculator's randInt() function to help you make decisions.
103: When people interrupt you you silence them with di.

haha AOC I do 98 and 100

What sucks though is that sometimes at work I have full of motivation to work on calc stuff but when I come back home it's all gone

104: You steal your workplace wi-fi to access Omnimaga during every break
105: After Omnimaga gets 200 posts a day regulary, you think the board is dead when it gets 100-150 for a few others, even thought half a year ago there weren't even 20 in a day most of the time when you visited

107: When you want to tell someone to do something, you lay down a number in front of them and say "rst 28h"
108: When working with parametric functions, you absent-mindedly write 'X' thinking that it will turn into a 'T'

114 - You contributed several items to a list of signs you're addicted to TIs.
115 - You hacked your TI-89 Titanium to run the OS that was used by Apple 2 computers.

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.
