Can't help but wonder tho...will it eventually be possible to use gCn/calcnet without the 3-or-4-page app DCS?  It's kind of a turnoff even for me...esp. when you consider the limited app slots in the 83 :P

Nothing against dcs, it's just kind of big

If he releases the source code, as far as I understand it Calcnet doesn't take up more than half a page. It's convenient to have it in DCS is all, since DCSBasic has support for it, and it was made by the same guy.

Maybe just a single installer, like xlib?

Hmm.....web browser? No image support, of course (Not nearly enough RAM) but that would make the idea possible.

Also, if Sir wasn't joking earlier about an OS....that seems like a nice group project.

Yeah, that is something I would like to see. It would be nice if there were multiple versions of DCS that have any number of these features removed: BASIC libs, CALCnet2.2, the GUI, and the Homerun hook. In these versions, the commands would simply be replaced with an EXEC ERR:NOT SUPPORTED, allowing us to have smaller versions of the app.

Yeah something like DCSLite would be nice. It would be like how Windows got multiple versions available. You would have to suggest that on Cemetech, though, so he sees it faster.

I doubt the homerun hook is so horrible for space. Really, what about a version that only has those? Then again, I can afford space for the full version on my nspire, so...:P guess I wouldn't be affected by the decision, either way

I just use calcutil, I guess that's what the homerun thing does (running asm and/or archived progs from homescreen...ion, dcs, mirage, no shell, w/e

I also like calcutil's [ON]+[#] hook to run a program from the homescreen just like that, and the ability to not save changes after using the TIOS editor ;)
Plus it's only one page :P

[offtopic]btw does anybody know what the "legacy tokens" are?[/offtopic]

Direct dl'ing from ticalc would be awesome ;D
Would it be possible to also allow access to archives from other TI sites ie omnimaga/cemetech/[insert major site here]?

Also there's casio calcs if at all possible...
Keep in mind that ticalc.org doesn't allow hotlinking, though. If I link you to a zip file from their archives, for example, it will forward to the directory listing where is located the file.

You can suggest that to Kerm, even though I don't really understand what you mean :P
