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.

##### Happy Tau Day!
« on: June 28, 2017, 11:58:08 pm »
As of the day this post was created (June 28, 2017), today is Tau Day! This is like Pi Day, except this day celebrates the virtues of the true circle constant, tau (= 2pi).

Read The Tau Manifesto here.
Check out some more information here.
The following gif should give a geometric explanation of the number itself:

Please, tell me your opinion on the tau vs pi debate below!
Should we use tau? Should we stick with pi? Should eta have a say in the matter?

Regardless, a happy Tau Day to all! I'll be eating full circle-shaped foods today, instead of only half circles.
