Now we just need a WFRNG OS for a calculator, to complement the one Michael Vincent wrote for the computer...

There's a WFRNG computer OS? :o I need to try that!

I think you need to boot from a floppy disk, CD or something, but I don't exactly remember.
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

A thumb drive should be fine, right? :) And while we're at it, this could replace RunOS...

Does it actually work, etc.  I mean, is your computer remotely functional after installing the OS?

yes, does this actually work, or is it a parody, to make you annoyed that you format your hard drive or something?

It's this file on ticalc.org.

It does actually "work". There are instructions to install it on a floppy disk but as a review said, it works on any bootable device. Use a program to write a disk image to the bootable device. It would, however, be a bad idea to install on your computer and replace your current OS... since it only consists of the WFRNG.

The userbars in my sig are links embedded links.

And in addition to calculator (and Python!) stuff, I mod Civilization 4 (frequently with Python).

Yeah what TC01 said. Do not install as lone OS on your computer.

I also used to have a mockup of a Nintendo DS box art cover 5 years ago, but it was on Earthforge, so...

im so sorry, i feel like SUCH a fool. thiis makes a whole lot more sense now and i was wondering why there was such inconsistencies in the readme and the whole tone of the text, it seemed very jokingly. hmmm... actually it seems funny. and i thank you for giving me some ti history. Im so sorry i acted like such a fool.

also i definititely agree that the older news was much clearer in stating the parody, it EMphasised that it was the best program several times, much clearer, the newer news only talked about 'raising' the status of the nspire which gets confused with the fact that it was PORTED to the nspire. thanks again for clarifying the WFRNG. You are a legend!

Yeah, plus the original program was made by a member of the ticalc.org staff for that very purpose :)

Anyway, a side question somewhat related to this (considering the dir the OS is in), I noticed that a lot of really useful stuff at ticalc.org is in the DOS folder. Do they all work in Windows?

Not to mention the staff that did it posted the news himself :P (self-promotion, much? ;D)
