Music Showcase / Re: Ripples- comp #4

This is a pretty good song overall.  It actually reminds me of "I Gotta Feeling" - Black Eyed Peas. I personally would prefer a different tone for the guitar/main instrument sound though.

General Discussion / Headphone Recommendation
« on: May 15, 2011, 03:50:15 am »
I'm looking for a good pair of headphones that:
 - Have overall better sound quality than iPod earphones
 - Are fairly good for most types of music, including classical, dubstep, hip-hop/rap, and rock
- Can block out the typical noise level of a television
- Cost less than ~$40

I plan to be using these with my phone and my laptop, if that makes any difference.  I did a little bit of research and this model seems pretty good.

What do you all think?

Cool, that's also a nice song

Computer Usage and Setup Help / New Laptop for College
« on: July 15, 2010, 02:23:29 pm »
I'm going to get a new laptop for college, and I am looking for some advice.  I already talked to some professors and people at the university and they didn't list any specific requirements for the laptop.

Here are some things to consider:

- I'm going into computer science (I'm not completely sure how this would affect my laptop decision...but maybe you would know)
- I'd like to be able to have 5 windows open, including a browser window with 20 tabs, at least one of which is a YouTube video playing
- The laptop does not need to handle high-end 3-D games
- I'll likely use some distribution of Linux, but there is a chance I will use Windows 7
- ~$1000 is the maximum I would want to pay

Sorry if I left any important information out.

That looks really good.  TI calculator programming has entered a new era 8)

TI-BASIC / Re: Figure out if Ans is a Number or a String
« on: January 03, 2010, 08:34:29 pm »
I think it generally would, but:
- It would make the program be 31 bytes instead of 30
- The program would fail sometimes - for example, if A were a large value like 10^98 (E98) before the program ran

The character rendering and the dialog look nice.  I hope things went well with implementing the event NPCs yesterday (if you were able to get around to it).  :)

TI-BASIC / Re: Figure out if Ans is a Number or a String

Here's my 30-byte solution that works for any input:

DelVar AFor(B,1,1

One would probably want to close to have For(B,1,1:End instead if this routine were being used within a larger program.  Also, I was hoping I could get rid of DelVar A and set A and B to different values using just For( by defining B in terms of A, but I'm not sure how to do that in a small way that always works (for positive and negative values of A, etc.)

See the original post.

This is awesome.  Along with Goplat's emulator, calc84maniac's TI-Nspire built of TI-Boy, and all the other action in the calculator community, this has been a pretty exciting winter break for me. 8)  ...even though I don't actually have a TI-Nspire  :P

TI-BASIC / Re: String to Number... ONE Number.
« on: November 07, 2009, 02:46:44 pm »
Oh, sorry, I forgot to include the first line of my code.  The encoding one should be:

Code: [Select]

I'm going to update my previous post too.

You could do something like this:

Before you encode/decode:
Code: [Select]

To encode (input string in Str1, ouput number in Ans):
Code: [Select]

To decode (input number in B, output string in Str3):
Code: [Select]
" ->Str3
If Ans

Then you could do sub(Str3,2,length(Str3)-1->Str3 to get rid of the space at the beginning.

In For(A,2,12 ,12 would be the maximum length of the string you'd expect.  I don't imagine these strings would be very long, or else accuracy would be lost fairly quickly (and then you'd get overflow errors too if they were over 69 characters or so).  You could also do a While loop or have a condition that exits the loop if int(28fPart(B/28^(A equals 0 too.  It could be rewritten many ways, such as even (I think this would work):

Code: [Select]
" ->Str3
If Ans

This would make the loop exit as soon as the number is finished being converted, while still using a For loop and not a While loop.  In this case you'd do sub(Str3,3,length(Str3)-2->Str3 to eliminate the stuff at the beginning.

Again, the main problem with this method would be possible loss of accuracy when calculating these really large numbers (the root of this problem would exist for pretty much any other string <-> number encoder/decoder because of the limit of how many digits the calculator stores - there are other more complicated methods such as using complex numbers to increase the limit, but not extremely significantly).  You could use base 27 instead of base 28 if you want by subtracting 1 from inString(Str2,sub(Str1,A,1 before multiplying it by 27^A, but I don't think it would matter much.
