Oh ok phew O.O, that explains it (ON+CLEAR?)

But still, guys, backup.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I don't know if you guys know Kucalc over here, but that happened to him a few times. One of the worst things was Symbolix. The reason it hasn't been updated is because in 2009 his friends changed the code alot and he didn't have a backup.

P.S. I'm from casiocalc.org, so I'm talking about casio programs. And yes, casio calcs do crash. LOL

Does Casio calcs crash even without ASM/C too by the way? On TI calcs, it's possible to crash a calc without even a single line of code.

Indeed. For example make a huge matrix, store a 2 byte token in ans or a string such as a lowercase letter, fill the home screen with random stuff until you reach like 2 bytes of RAM or something, then recall the string. If by the time it tries displaying the 2 byte token you only have 1 byte of RAM left, then your calc freak out.

I think, more than 80% of the members already found out why it is good to backup the progress often!!
(me too...) :(

I think I recall a lot of mem clears/data loss indeed from him. Also some members here used to have it happen on a consistent basis, yet they wouldn't learn from it. X.x Same on other forums.

Of course I can understand if they have no way to backup, though, because of parents (like JustCause).

I just lost my progress on pong. It didnt really take long since its so simple, but I'm still pissed. I backed up a few hours ago on computer so at least I didn't lose anything else.

Don't you archive your programs ? Moreover those that are important for you ?

That's not really a helpful way of phrasing that, Hayleia. Losing progress is a lesson unto itself. I'd say he's learned, and it's a good thing too: losing a small project and learning to backup now is better than losing a large project that it's unfeasible to recode. ^^
See you, space cowboy...

Erm, yeah, sorry, that could seem a bit rude. It is just that I (personnally) have the habit to always archive everything and I was surprised that he could lose something, it was not meant to be rude, more like "you don't have this habit to archive everything ?"
Also, as I am French, I don't always have the better way of phrasing in my mind D:
