Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

It all depends on the calc you own and where you are.
  • Calculators owned: None of them. :'(
Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."

So this isn't related directly to the jail/extreme punishment thing when falsely accused of cheating at exams with a TI-Nspire CX, but now here is something new this year: Certain French schools decided to ban the TI-Nspire CX entirely. All other previously allowed calcs are still allowed, even if they have similar features added via programs or even some superior ones. Also since it's only certain schools doing it, it can be hard to know it in advance and it sucks if you bought that calc in August, only to realize you won't be able to use it at the finals:  https://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=214385#p214385
