looking for TI 83/84 users
« on: January 29, 2012, 03:51:47 pm »
I'm a Review Editor with Manning Publications and will soon start a review of a book on programming TI 83+/ TI 84+ calculators. This is internal, technical review - sort of a peer review. If you are using these calculators or are planning to (experienced users and newbies are both welcome) and you would like to participate, please PM or email me.

Questions welcome!

Is this a spambot or actual request?

Just checked with Christopher Mitchell (A.K.A KermMartian). This was apparently posted by the company that will be publishing his TI-BASIC book. In other words, it's legitimate.

EDIT: heh, he beat me to the reply.

You would just reply by email to him if you're interested. Keep in mind that PMs are 5+ posts, so the guy from Manning can't reply.

And it is for Christopher's book?

You can send me an email or PM saying that you are interested. Please include your email and real name in both cases. If you feel like it you can add a few words about your level of expertise. After that - nothing much... I will send you the official invite when the review starts (probably in a week or so). You can also whitelist our domain so that nothing gets caught in the spam filter.

Oh, it seems I can't send PMs so please remember to include your email address when sending me a PM.

edit: thanks Juju!

At first I thought somebody was planning to write a book competing against Kerm's/Christopher O.O, glad I saw Kerm's post below, else I was actually planning to bring it up to him. :P

As for PMs you need 5 posts to send one, due to spam protection. People will need to include their e-mail as you say, or another solution could be Cemetech's PM system.

Also good luck for the book! Will it be available for sale to people living outside United States too?

I might check at the local book store when it gets released. Are your books translated in other languages, such as French?

Normally no, but if a foreign (French) publisher shows interest - why not?

Ok thanks. Most stores here sells French books, but if it's available online I'm probably gonna get my hand on it. (I don't mind if it's written in English)

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...
