I'm unsure if teachers have the right to do that, but since they do it with the TI-Nspire in some areas, this means they could very well try with the 84+, although it would take longer to check, since with the TI-Nspire they just have to use the navigator.

The problem is that the people who know about changing the os are the people who know how to trick the teachers.  :\

Re: A patch to fix 2.71MP

I've been working on this all day and I think I've cleaned up the mess. This patch should fix 2.71MP.
Did you actually track down and fix each bug, or just run a differencing program, and then have the program patch the differences?

Let's just say I know what was changed.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

On an semi off-topic and humoristic note, I just saw the following in the post stats. Maybe this brought a curse on us which brought us this OS? O.O

This is for people who missed the actual 8xu copy of the OS and still want to see how bad it was. We weren't planning to keep a link to the actual 8xu forever, due to copyrights. :P

Anyway happy april 1st everyone. And yes, the randomness board title is fake too. I just had no idea what to name it to, yet. :P

Lol, actually that would probably be more of a Cemetech prank, though, although we could always do the same as one of our previous fake news and involve gCn ;D.

I still remember the 2005 joke got a lot of people too.

Zelda, the minish cap for the 83+SE and the 84+SE, a 94 page flash app port of the entire GBA game with 8 levels grayscale. Back then, people fell for it easily because animated GIF capture programs were very hard to find and very few people knew it was possible to allow CalcCapture to take animated screenshots from something else than VirtualTI. :P (The screenshot was taken from a GBA emulator)

Not nearly as convincing as this, though.  This was announced as if it were real.  The 2005 post is in brown.  (Though it may have been turned brown later.)

EDIT: This prank might be a bad idea.  We shouldn't give TI any ideas for their new os.  :P

EDIT2: The best thing about this prank was that you got everyone to follow along.  I feel so stupid gullible, now.   >:(

It used to be black. It was changed to brown only after I posted the news saying it's fake. kinda like last year with the fake DMCA notice from TI for Keyfont usage in Omnimaga banner.

And yeah a lot of people, including non-staff members, were playing along. :P (Although they didn't know about the prank in advance)
