There is also codewalr.us that is fairly active for TI calcs (mainly Axe, xLIBC and BASIC, though). Or there is TI-BASIC Developer and TI-Planet  but the latter is French

Yeah, there isnt enough traffic on this site for me to check in with any kind of frequency. May I suggest going to Cemetech.net or Omnimaga.org for your questions?

It bothers me that all the last stuff that happened on this site was September of last year...

unfortunately, that is used to help prevent bots from attacking. a good example of this would be Spud's forum.
right now, this verification is all we have.

I find the verification slightly annoying. Every time I post.

Luxen: yes, that's exactly the goal, it's the glue between each part of the site  ;D

Contra: good idea with the top navigation bar! it certainly helps you realize there is more to the site.

also, this is the wrong place to make a topic about "cemetech minecraft".

Princeton, I am glad you have decided to continue posting, but try making new stuff. besides, I havent heard of any new projects from you for a while. care to share?

Anyway, I don't want to simplify too much the homepage, because we need to be seo compliant and explain to boot what this website is talking about.

ok thank you Luxen. I think we could do something like this with html+css, why use flash? Anyway, what we could do is maybe to publish recent post and recent q&a on homepage...

I have a (google) site called Agranovisky with simple programming tutorials I wrote with T.Wang.

hey everyone. sorry about the continued delay with the flash project, but exams, classes, yada yada yada.
@Contra: I am well. I'm curious what has led to the surge of new members, and I press everyone to introduce themselves in the introductory topic.

Hey there, Princeton. I'm glad you found this site, its just me and Contra right now. don't be afraid to necropost at the moment while the site is still empty.

Interview : William White !
« on: November 08, 2013, 11:47:20 AM »
Hi William White, you're a great member of the TI community, thank you to answer our questions !


Let's talk a bit about your last project, qasm which seems very cool !

Why did you started this project?

Quote
I started the project several years ago when coding for several calcs at the same time.
Rarely do I release a program without porting to most models, so it was the sensible thing to try.

Do you intend to keep working on it in the futur?

Quote
Eventually I plan to have to program implement Kerm Martian's binpax8x and compile the code straight to program.
Also, I'll probably add in color bitmap conversions for the Nspire and TI-73 support. Also Flash App support for 73/83+/84+

What is possible/impossible currently with this tool? Could you program a complete game like mario or tetris using qasm?
Quote
QASM can be integrated into ANY TI z80 asm project. What's not currently possible, other than listed above, is .wav (sound) and .mpg (video) conversion. Both are being considered, but unlikely due to usefulness.
I'll probably include sound and video just for the ticalc.org green sticker.

What about the size of the resulting file (generated), you tell the word "optimized", so I guess it's more or less not much bigger than a program directly designed in assembly?
Quote
The assembly code could be smaller in many cases, but the aim was compatibility. Most possible improvements are on a case-by-case basis and not generally needed.
According to http://tistory.wikidot.com/parasoft-productions, I see you're a long time member of the ti community, tell us a bit more about these really old stories (the team, how you began, really bored production, parasoft...).[/b]
Quote
I've been programming since 2000/2001. Learned from MANY better coders: Levi Lansing, Morgan Davies, THE MAGNUS HAGANDER, Haroon I, Patrick Davidson, Sam Heald. Basically chatted with most of the "Golden Age" giants. With few friends in high school we started Really Bored Productions in 2001. As with most groups we struggled with staying active. So a revamp occured as RBP 2, which suffered the same issues. And a final attempt, RBPx around 2005/2006 but fizzled out as real life became busier. With Parasoft I was an honorary member. The community has really shrunk since the peak in 2001-2003. I blame smart phones. :-D
Please tell me more about you, what you do IRL, your hobbies...

Quote
Right now the focus is getting an Associates from ITT Tech while working 2 jobs and investing.
Hobbies: Numismatics, Coding, Texas Hold 'em, eTrade.

Why you started coding stuff for calc? Do you do some other stuff (computer side)?
Quote
Needed a creative outlet when cancer took my father. On the computer side of it I code C/C++ and web scripting (javascript/html/css/php/perl). I really need to learn ajax and am very interested in making short cgi films or helping on an mmorpg. So much to do, so little time.

Which kind of advice could you give to newbies?


Quote
Keep coding and try not to be dissuaded by those of us who can and DO make the greyscale/color games that everyone seems to be playing. Study, practice, and talk to us old salty guys. We don't bite LOL Setting goals and experimenting go A LONG way. @nspire coders: why aren't we seeing original art coming out? Or maybe a Paintshop program? hint hint Sonic/Zelda/MK3 would be nice another HINT HINT

And finally, tell us what you want, this is your part !!!

Quote
Finally. more about myself: to all coders new and old: facebook.com/seklorean I'm on occasionally, so feel free to add :-D
