General Calculator Help / TI-Nspire System Error at Startup
« on: May 21, 2014, 11:43:29 pm »
My Nspire CX CAS (3.6 with Ndless and Nlaunchy) was running low on battery, so I plugged it in before school. I came back and it wouldn't turn on, so I reset it. It stopped halfway through boot with "System Error" and the warning exclamation point triangle sign showing. After about 2 minutes, the screen turns off and won't do anything until a reset, when the process starts over.

I don't think it's Nlaunchy, as it was working fine beforehand and didn't die during an intervening startup (AFAIK), but I could be wrong. I asked about it in #cemetech (EFNet) and KermM said that he had never seen that before.

TI Calculators / Reluctant Quadratic Solver Competition
« on: May 04, 2014, 08:53:11 pm »
After reading though the wonder paper Pessimal Algorithms and Simplexity Analysis, I thought of a wonderful idea: a reluctant quadratic solver! I'm not very good at these things, though, so I decided to bring it out to the Omnimaga community for everyone to have a go.

Goal: Make a quadratic solver.
· The program must always be progressing towards the goal.
Points are awarded for:
· Inefficiency
· Novelty
· Precision
· Style
· Humor
· Choice of language

Said points will be awarded per user, with a running count in the main topic. Users are free to improve any algorithm, and will get points for the improvement accordingly. Programs can be interactive or non-interactive, but the user interaction shouldn't cause repetition.

(Note: This doesn't have to be for a language on a TI calc, but I couln't think of a better place to put it. If a mod knows where this would fit better, feel free to move it.)

Coming soon!

TI-Nspire / [BASIC] slang - The Stack LANGuage
« on: December 23, 2013, 11:51:36 pm »
A project I've had for a while; now posting. Think Joy, but less complete. It is slow, I warn, but it works and has a cool module system. (I may overhaul it and make it faster if I get bored/interested.) It also houses a string find and replace function that I'm quite proud of. (Note: Wait for my next project, as it will probably be faster by then.) If you have any optimizations/recommendations, please post them.

Just put it in your MyLib folder. Have fun!

HP Calculators / Adventures with the HP 28S
« on: December 14, 2013, 02:29:04 pm »
A friend of the family gave me his HP 28S ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR about a month ago, and I've been playing and hacking around with it. I figured that I'll document my findings and programs here, for posterity's, curiosity's, and the open source spirit's sake.

HP Calculators / Prime Wiki Discussion
« on: August 08, 2013, 12:03:30 am »
Hey! We have a wiki! It's at Go do stuff there.

Spoiler For Old stuff:
Since there's no real place to get good Prime information (the manual included with the emulator is out of date), here's a thread where you can post things you found. Please try to keep it down to one post per person by editing in new content. Also, feel free to put in something found by someone else, as long as you give attribution.

Prime Emulator Download Link: (adriweb)
It can be ran with no issues in Wine, for those not on Windows.

Function information:
Use the on-calc help. Browse by pressing Tree and using the screen or the arrows, or by pressing Key and pressing the first key you use to get to a function.

When multiplying a constant by a variable, you have to use *. (2*A+2 instead of 2A+2) (DJ Omnimaga on IRC)

Text diplay:
To color text, you have to use one of the TEXTOUT functions with a RGB function as the color.
If you feed a TEXTOUT function a negative length, the text is italicized and underlined, ignoring the background color (if supplied).

Casio Calculators / Mass Storage for Prizm
« on: December 18, 2012, 10:19:15 am »
I was wondering if it would be possible to make the Prizm interface with a USB thumb drive or other mass storage device. It would be useful because the Prizm only has 16 MiB of storage available, and a project I'm working on would need more (at least the ability to mount it and use it mid-program).
