Nah I don't think they signed up on forums. Girls playing calc games were definitively common for a while, though. Remember: I graduated from hi school in June 2003.

They more easily get addicted to games than sign up in forums and post. Although I know some girls that wandered for a while in forums (without posting much). :)
It is so much easier to find girls in MMO Strategy games than in calc community. *runs*
Hobbing in calculator projects.

Wow. Not only did I never think I would see a girl on the internet, but I certainly never thought they would also play Calc games. That is epic.

But it's probably fake because it's too good to be true.

Also I doubt they would spend time making a calc video if they didn't care about them. That's unless, of course, this video was a school project.

That's cool.  It's neat that you want to learn why Eeems is so interesting in something that not many people are interested in. ;D

The trick is to not start too huge with projects, if you start any. Also don't go too far in tutorials at first. You can check of course, if you are curious, but it's always best to start with the rudimentary stuff at first. Even if TI-BASIC is easier than many other programming languages, it can still be hard to start with if you never programmed before. It was my case several years ago, and for my very first calculator game, I had to do a very small role playing game with one dungeon split in two parts and only one kind of enemy and magic spell. It lasted about 15-30 minutes of gameplay and was very broken. It took me about 6 months until I can manage to do something that is complex enough.

In my first game ever, which was called Labyrinth of Illusions, there were no graphics in battles and full of errors x.x. Game was absolutely massive too, for what it can do. Later the game had an intro animation added as well as battle intro animation and graphics in battles. Errors were fixed too, game made smaller, altough game is still big compared to what I could do now. I renamed it to Illusiat once battle graphics were added in September 2001.



Keep in mind that back when I still programmed for calculators non-stop, I had no internet access at home, so all I had to learn was the huge TI-83+ manual. Even if I had internet, though, the only TI-83 BASIC tutorial avaliable back in the days was Basic Guru and it only has half of the tricks we know today on TI-BASIC Developer. It also didn't show how to make games, if I remember.

I have girls playing mario and other asm games on calc all the time. more than one time, my school's math teacher told me not to transfer games to their calculators -_-;; I usually don't give them big BASIC games, because they will get confused on how to archive/unarchive it, how to play them, etc., so I just give them mirage os and bunch of easy-to-play games


Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*
