Its not much, and not near finished.
I still need to make it look really nice and do a few optimizations, But the core is finished and completely playable!

I would love all comments, complaints, suggestions.

Computer Programming / Queueing problems in Data and Structures class [C]
« on: January 26, 2015, 03:27:31 am »
I don't really understand these, nor how to utilize google for help so if any of you have an idea where to start, I would appreciate it :)

Q1. If an array holding a queue is not considered circular, then each remove operation must shift down every remaining element of a queue.  An alternative method is to postpone shifting until rear equals the last index of the array.  When that situation occurs and an attempt is made to insert an element into the queue, the entire queue is shifted down, so that the first element of the queue is in position 0 of the array.  What are the advantages of this method over performing a shift at each remove operation?  What are the disadvantages?
Q2.  Given that jobs are serviced at a rate of 30 jobs per hour, determine the arrival rate in jobs per hour which will achieve the expected queue length to be 9.
Q3. Jobs arrive at the rate of 20 jobs per minute, and each job requires 2 seconds of service time, on the average. Determine the average waiting time in the queue. What is the probability that at a given time the system is not empty?
Q 4. Given that on the average 2 customers can be serviced per minute, determine the average arrival rate of the customers that achieves the average waiting time in the system (including the service time) to be 5 minutes per customer.


Computer Programming / Free C textbook.
« on: November 24, 2014, 02:58:52 am »
Hey guys, my professor wrote his own textbook for C and I find it very good for beginning/intermediate C programmers.
Some chapters are lacking, but it does an extremely good job compared to other books I've seen.

On Page 437, it talks about Huffman Compression, and i thought it was cool and applicable :)

Miscellaneous / Quick Survey About You and Omnimaga.
« on: November 06, 2013, 04:09:02 pm »
Hey everyone, I hope you're having a good day so far.

In a recent essay for English Class, I wrote an essay about my experience in a "discourse community"
Spoiler For Spoiler:
"A discourse community' is a group of people who share a set of discourses, understood as basic values and assumptions, and ways of communicating about those goals. Linguist, John Swales defined discourse communities as 'groups that have goals or purposes, and use communication to achieve these goals'" -Wikipedia

Anyways, we've been assigned a follow-up essay about the communities as a whole and include views of the other members as well.  If you wouldn't mind, I request that you reply with answers to the questions, and not look at others' until you have submitted yours.  (Feel free to send as a PM if private, or ignore questions)

1) How did you first learn about Omnimaga and what aspect influenced you to stay?

2) Do you feel as if we have similarities outside of programming naturally. If so, what are they? (i.e. MLP fans)

3) For what reason(s) do you frequent Omnimaga over other sites like Cemetech or TIPlanet? (Or vise-versa)

4) Do you consider the community of Omnimaga to have a main goal(s)? (if so, what are they?)

5) How do you feel your relationship is with other members?

6) Do you find that Omnimaga (and calc programming) has helped you in the outside world?

7) What is your favorite inside joke/lingo?  (i.e. Holy Necropost Batman!  or Welcome peanuts etc.)

8 ) What country are you from?

If you have any questions or ideas for new questions, feel free to ask or let me know :)

General Calculator Help / Broken Calcs
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:21:26 am »
Hello everyone, I am currently in possesion of three TI-83+'s that I have failed to fix.
All three have hardware issues that renders the screen useless.

Any of you think you got a chance to fix them or want to try?
I'll ship within the US for free (atleast for one calc), but outside will probably be too much for me.

Computer Programming / Help with converting text to data.
« on: November 30, 2012, 11:25:02 pm »
Hello everyone.

I was hoping someone here could give me a hand.
I have about 420K of data for a program. I am able to cut it down to about 250K by using nibbles instead of bytes per character.

I have it set where:
Code: [Select]
Page 0
0 - special case
1 - go to page one
2 - go to page two
3 - go to page three
4 - go to page four
5-15 Use corresponding characters.

Page 1-4
0-15 use corresponding characters

anyways, I have no idea where to start out in turning my text file into appvar's.
Can anyone help? It'd need to be able to write one nibble at a time.

If you don't feel like writing code or anything, could you please point me in the right direction?
What language I should use etc.

Math and Science / 8 Balls
« on: November 27, 2012, 08:02:17 pm »
Ok, after seeing Builder's awesome riddle, which I solved (ok, not really), I figured I could be nice and make you think of two at once. >:D.

You have 8 identical Blue Lobsters and one balance. Lets say it looks like this.

One of the lobster's weighs slightly more than the rest, but you can't tell by holding it or anything.  You are overcome with the sudden urge to know which one is the one that weighs more.  Warning though, you have only time enough to use the balance twice before Netham attacks you with a Banana Razor!  How can you tell which is the heavier?

Spoiler For In other words:
1) 8 lobsters. 7 weigh same. 1 weighs tiniest bit more.
2) 1 balance
3) You can only use the balance twice
4) Find the heavier lobster

Same rules apply to mine as his. There is no trickery.
You can't just say 'Oh! this one feels like it might weigh more.
Good luck.

General Calculator Help / Ti-36 help permutaions
« on: November 01, 2012, 09:47:23 am »

Miscellaneous / James Oldiges's Eagle Scout Project and update.
« on: May 23, 2012, 04:12:05 pm »
Hello everyone, I know I have been quite inactive for several months and I would like to do an update.

I got my calculators back (although Sabrina, my 84+SE, went through a complete memory clear).
School has ended.
My grandmother is deathly sick and is in the hospital.
and I am running out of time for the completion of my Eagle Project.  (including the paperwork D: )

*Link to my website with my eagle project stuff*
^ My website is run on my laptop when on windows 7, and I am currently on with Ubuntu.

If I do get everything done for my Eagle Project however, and it all goes well.  I will dedicate 3 days of 10 hour straight calculator programming to celebrate.

Humour and Jokes / 3 little noobs
« on: March 16, 2012, 06:45:39 pm »
Once upon a time there were three new players and the time came for them to leave the spawn chunk and seek their fortunes.

Before they left, their server host told them "Whatever you do, do it the best that you can because that's the way to get along in this world.

The first new player built his house out of dirt because it was the easiest thing to do.

The second little pig built his house out of cobblestone. This was a little bit stronger than a dirt house.

The third little pig built his house out of obsidian.

One night the big bad creepers, who dearly loved to kill new players, came along and saw the first new player in his house of dirt.
He said "Hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss!"
*"Let me in, Let me in, little noob or I'll hiss and I'll hiss and I'll blow your house up!"*

"Not by the hair of the default player skin", said the little noob.

But of course the creeper did blow the house up and killed the first noobie.

The next creeper then came to the house of cobblestone.

He said "Hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss!"
*"Let me in, Let me in, little noob or I'll hiss and I'll hiss and I'll blow your house up!"*

"Not by the hair of the default player skin", said the 2nd little noob.

But the creeper blew that house up too, and killed the second little noob.

The last creeper then came to the house of obsidian.

"Hiss hiss hiss, hiss hiss hiss" hissed the creeper.
*"Let me in, let me in"*

"Hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss"
*"Or I'll hiss and I'll hiss and i'll blow your house up"*

"Not by the hair on your mom's chin" said the final player.

Well, the hissed and hissed and blew up.

But the creeper wasn't powerful enough, and only broke the dirt around the house.

Axe / HBJ needs some string help.
« on: January 10, 2012, 05:43:50 pm »
Ok, so i have 152 strings in an appvar, and each is 10 characters (1-byte) long.
Well the names in them are between 3 and 10 characters long, but i only know how to call on them if their length is uniform.
for example... "natham____" (_ = space)

Is there any more efficient ways to do this?

Miscellaneous / Random Project. Come join in.
« on: December 13, 2011, 05:12:53 pm »
Ok, so i have been seeing lot of random topics lately, and thought of this.
Basically all you have to do, as a minimum, is add one line of code to the program.

You may make changes to previous parts of the program for obvious reasons, but don't change everything all at once ;)

oh.  and please have a comment next to every sprite.

Code: [Select]
:Repeat Getkey(15)

Miscellaneous / Harry potter light up wand.
« on: November 21, 2011, 08:03:14 pm »
After much frustration, I successfully made a harry potter wand that lights up!
I know it sounds easy, but when you are that cramped in space, also limited to size of internal hole for structural reasons, it is very difficult.
I had no real way to get my wires to connect to batteries, so for one side i used force and the other a magnet.  (is magnet + battery bad?)

So here is the vid :D  :hyper:  :hyper:  :hyper:   :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:
