Yay! It's finally on the Nspire!

Haha true.

Also I am still waiting for the TI-85 Zshell port, as well as TI-81 ASM port :P

It's funny to see this is still going on after 10 years. Oh well, in some ways those jokes show to newer programmers they should maybe be more original.

Also I think this is the first time a non-ticalc.org staff gets featured in a fake news there. Even a member from the Omni forums :P

I'd also like to see a port to Flash. It'd be interesting to see how non-calc programmers would view something like that :D

I'd also like to see a port to MM Flash. It'd be interesting to see how non-calc programmers would view something like that :D

mm... microsoft mobile? :o that would be amazing!
also, i updated it on the archive, ill update it here as well..
Loved this place, still the best producers of power metal, and sparked my dreams of coding.

I meant plain Macromedia Flash, but I agree. That'd be amazing too.

Oh, and an iPod/iPhone/iPad app! :D

Microsoft Mobile?  You mean Windows Mobile?  I can do that.

One thing that sucks now is that the activity slump in the TI community that lasted from late 2007 to early 2009 on calc forums in general made it so the older users left faster than new users joined and new users were not transmitted the reasons for WFRNG existence, reasons that were transmitted from generation to generation (of calc programmers) over the years. As a result, today, almost all new TI users on ticalc.org won't get the joke anymore.

EDIT: On a side note, the quote in my sig spoiler is from comments on the 2004 WFRNG ASM port fake news. I think it was made up by the staff.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

It's more a sarcastic shot at the people who flood ticalc archives with useless games and programs that were done many times before and it became some sort of meme over the time.

Nice. Another port! Quick, let us port this to all available platforms! Make a z80 and m68k version of the WFRNG OS! ;D
Congrats on the feature though.

I would go with TI-81, 82 and 85 I think. However, they have no RandInt() function, so...

I actually mentioned the OS, but still :P

BEST. 84+ OS. EVAR!

And you can use int(N*rand, which functions closely to randInt( :)

Is it very close, though? I think it kinda needs to be as accurate as possible to be true to WFRNG :P

Ported to Nspire C!
The package also contains a useful console routine, making it the first edition of the Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator that has a serious practical use :D
