Yet another reason to get a CX. Gah.

There are so many awesome things for the ti nspire cx (cas). It is a must have. Would somebody take my "old" ti nspire cas with touchpad charge into a cx?
I've just said it works also for classic Nspires, what have I said wrong ?

This is why I love the calculator community.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Yes this is great! The ability of the TI-nspire to count seconds accurately enough can open up a whole world of game and program development where the program relies on a specific time frame pass for an action to be carried out for example. Eg: Wait 5 minutes until an item is ready to be used or something.

How frequently is it written to NAND? Writing it to frequently would wear it excessively.

When you launch nclock =)
It reads the config file where all the stuff needed is stored, as well as the backuped clock.
But when is it backed up?

The clock deficiency on the Nspire has been fixed.
And as fairly often, deficiencies of the Nspire platform were fixed by third parties, through the power of native code :)

But coloured games or utilities like nclock are look awful on the classic nspire, aren't they?

To me it looks like the entire program is black and white.
It should be fine :)

?

I have no idea how to be more precise than that =/
Maybe : nClock is a two-time program, you launch it a first time to install the permanent hook (on each reboot), and another time to launch the GUI, this is when the RTC is backuped, each time the user wants to display the big clock.

This is great! This way I can check the time during an exam! YAY! :D
