One that they lend? Wouldn't it be kinda unsafe, though, if other people can use it? Also it sucks about your link cable.

Well, it's for the school year. Hopefully I can get some stuff done in that time :P

Ah ok good :)

If they lend calcs, I do not recommend bringning yours at school when there are math tests, in case a teacher resets it.

Eh, my teachers never reset calcs (which is a good thing, considering I once made a pretty extensive set of math tools :D).

Same here.  In fact, I've never had a Math teacher that's discouraged programming.  My current one does have a no calc portion of the test to prevent this, though. :)

Mine actually showed the class how to make a program to calculate Riemann sums. Really, really unoptimized, but at least that means he accepts calc programming :D

In my case we could use our calc and programs as much as we want during tests, but the tests were written in a way that made programs useless, as you had to write down the entire solution to the problem (the answer would only count for 25% of the question score). On such test, if all your problem solutions were right but all your final answers were wrong, you would still pass the test with 75/100 mark. (the passing note is 60)

Oh, with us, he gave us full credit if we got the answer right, but partial credit if we showed our work and if it was wrong. So there was some incentive to use our calcs, but not much. Of course, there were tests where we couldn't use our calcs at all :P

There's a bug with the Clear button in OS 2.53. I'm trying to track it down and reliably duplicate it, but it doesn't appear to be replicable. Sometimes, when one attempts to clear an incomplete expression, the text will partially clear, the cursor will start running down the page, pushing the text to the top and not erasing the pixels. This will cause an infinite loop that requires you to pull out the batteries to exit. Thus, you're automatically given a RAM clear. It's fairly easy to see the bug, as it happens almost every other day for me, but I can't replicate it. Giving it precisely the same input will not always cause a crash after you insert the batteries again. This leads me to believe that it has something to do with previous entries in the memory.

EDIT:

And I suppose you pointed out how you could use a multidimensional array and several For( loops to optimize the code ;)

You wouldn't happen to be using omnicalc would you? ;)

That's a glitch when omnicalc tries to partially clear a line. It's really useful outside of mathprint, but whenever you press clear halfway through an equation in mathprint with omnicalc enabled, ram clear.

I have Omnicalc disabled right now. It's not installed, although the App is still there. But I'll see if that is what is causing it.

EDIT: Yep, it's Omnicalc. Good to know.

And that is why I no longer use OS 2.53 MP.

Oh I remember he mentionned that glitch before and could recreate it. I didn't knew he used Omnicalc. So I guess it must be due to Omnicalc, then.

When sending programs to the TI-Nspire running OS 2.54MP, after the transfer, sometimes, a "2" appears at the blinking cursor location. ???

haha, that happened to me before XD

I thought it was the amount of programs being sent `-`
