« on: February 08, 2012, 12:36:40 pm »
KermMartian posted this link on Cemetech which he found on casio's FB page.

According to the link, if you finish all the assessments, you will get a FREE Prizm!

To get a ClassPad you have to be a teacher though.

Computer Usage and Setup Help / Got new RAM...is it incompatible?
« on: February 01, 2012, 09:28:41 pm »
I just received 2 1GB sticks RAM I bought online for my eMachines T2482. I got it from pcprogress.com.

When I try to boot up my monitor does not come out of powersave mode, but beeps until I hard power off. Knowing a little bit of POST, I know this means there is no RAM recognised by the computer.

So, this makes me think that my RAM is incompatible, since its unlikely for 2 sticks to be bad. I tried putting them in one at a time in each slot, still no help.

OTHER INFO:

I currently have 2 sticks of 512MB RAM.

The new sticks' stickers look like this:
Code: [Select]
NETLIST NL9127RD12042 - D21JSB
       1GB DDR RDIMM
       PC2100 - 200436
       0197 - 97B - 255BDL

BARCODE

The par that says "DDR RDIMM" is what I'm wondering about. Is RDIMM different than DIMM or SDRAM? Will a computer that uses DDR DIMM/SDRAM be compatible with RDIMM?

If these stick are indeed incompatible, is it worth it to pay $60 from crucial for the guaranteed stuff? (I got these sticks for $9.98 from pc progress)


Thx in advance :)

Computer Usage and Setup Help / Overclocking the AMD athlon 2400+
« on: January 29, 2012, 10:10:12 pm »
Hi. I have 2GB of RAM being shipped to my house ATM and while I'm in the mood of upgrading an old PC... I thought it might be fun to overclock the CPU (If its possible without extensive cooling systems).

So...

MY SPECS:
eMachines T2482 with stock motherboard and fans
AMD Athlon 2400+ (2.0GHz)
512MB RAM (2GB on the way, the most my board will recognise)
510MB Swap/Virtual Memory

Ubuntu 11.10/WinXP Pro


Can I OC this without replacing the fans? Is there a linux program to check CPU temp at 100%? Will my BIOS let me OC?

Is it worth it?

I only want to OC it to about 2.3GHZ or so.

Humour and Jokes / Most interesting experience you have had
« on: January 09, 2012, 11:40:43 am »
Post the most interesting experience you have had.

Here's mine:

In august '11 I jammed my finger in a car jack and got the whole tip of it torn off. Had to go to the hospital to get a tetanus shot and to get it cleaned. It was Friday night and it had to be about the most interesting experience I had. There was a guy who got shot, but didnt want to file any charges, had no idea how he got shot, where he got shot or who shot him :D , a guy who got in a fight and had a different story every time he told it, and i guy on drugs. I got out at about 4AM. lol

BTW: I chatted on omnomirc with one hand anyway! :D

Casio Calculators / 9 Queens problem... PRIZM
« on: January 06, 2012, 03:57:28 pm »
I dont have a prizm, but if someone would like to post the seconds it takes for prizm to finish the 9-queens problem (code below) we could compare its speed to other calcs

Code: [Select]
10->J
Lbl 2
1.0000001->A
A->B
27->I
Lbl 1
A*A->A
B^2.01->B
Dsz I:Goto 1
Dsz J:Goto 2
"A=":A,
"B=":B,

Site Feedback and Questions / Code BB tag bug and work-around
« on: January 06, 2012, 11:59:46 am »
I have found that if you use code that looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[ code]some code[ /code]

or this:

Code: [Select]
[ code]
some code[ /code]

The numbers will turn out wrong. However, doing this type of code:

Code: [Select]
[ code]
some code
[ /code]

Makes the number aligned, but also adds a new line to the end of the codeblock.

Just thought that information would be useful ;)

Casio PRIZM / CalGUI -- A GUI library by flyingfisch
« on: January 05, 2012, 10:16:28 am »
NOTE: I am posting this in PRIZM projects, but since there is no LuaFX for PRIZM yet, it would be nice to have a LuaFX/AFX projects section ;)

I have been meaning to make a GUI library for a while and have only now found the time, so here it is in alpha-of-an-alpha :D

Available functions:

* Lua Classes (thanks to adriweb for code)
* Input text (missing in the originl luaFX)

Planned functions to be included:

* Buttons
* Window Manager
* EZ Menus
* Dialog boxes
* Radio Buttons
* Check Boxes
* More :D

Since this project is free and open source, and you are free to fork it if you want, here is the code: ;)

EDIT: Added a GitHub repo

Code: [Select]
-- locals
local line = graydraw.line
local wait = misc.wait
local setcolor = graydraw.setcolor
local text = graydraw.text
local exitprog = misc.exit
local print = nbdraw.print
local find = string.find
local setCursor = nbdraw.setcursor
local strsub = string.sub
local strlen = string.len

Does anyone know of a calc<=>PC transfer program that is native to linux? All I can find are windows programs, which don't detect the calculator.

Casio Calculators / LuaFX on-calc Program Editor?
« on: December 19, 2011, 01:05:46 pm »
I can't speak french, so, rather than post on Planet-Casio, I have decided to post here. Is anyone working on an on-calc editor for LuaFX (maybe even built-in to the luaFX addin). If not, is there anyone who would want to make one? Edit V1.1 doesn't work for this (some problem with EOF or something, I finally gave up).
