Hey, it's me, Juju, four favourite admin in charge of funding. As you probably know, this site runs on a low budget (basically, we pay for hosting, the domain name and eventual contest prizes, it's not that expensive) and there's quite a few people who were asking me how they can help to keep the site alive. So, figures I'd make a post on how to do so.
One way to throw money at us, I mean, donate is the Subscriptions feature of SMF. Go in Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions and you will find a number of tiers you can subscribe to at various prices per month or per year. Currently, the prices goes from $0.50/month to $4/month (it's the same per year, but multiplied by 12, obviously). A PayPal account is required. If you have any problems, such as SMF eating up all your money, anything not showing up, you don't have PayPal or you want to donate a different amount, feel free to contact me by sending a PM or an email at juju@<the domain name of this website>.
What you get in exchange, you might ask? Basically, the satisfaction your favourite website will continue existing for a little longer while giving out fancier prizes for its contests. Oh, and a little badge in your profile saying "CodeWalrus Supporter" just so you can show it off. We don't really have any intention to give out any "premium" features, your experience should be the same for everyone.
Also, if you want some nice hosting for your website, DigitalOcean, the hosting we currently use, gives you a $10 credit for a VPS of your choice by clicking on this link. Once you spend $25 there, we'll get a $25 credit! Of course, you'll have to know some Linux basics, so it's not for the faint of heart. Another way would be probably selling some t-shirts and mugs of your favourite mascot, we can set this up once enough people would seriously be interested.
Anyway, we have one such contest coming soon, stay tuned!

Server upgrade, time to reboot. I'm gonna do it sometime today around 20:00 UTC, should be only a couple minutes of downtime at most so don't panic. IRC channels are still available in the meantime if you need them.
UPDATE (by DJ): The server reboot by Streetwalrus went on smoothly.

With just three staff members left and fear that I would have been forced to take a hiatus in a few months, the only way to continue keeping the website alive was to process into a restructure of our staff system. When I ran Omnimaga (which I founded in 2001), the main staff had some activity requirements to meet in order to ensure that we can maintain the website adequatly and keep its activity steady. That idea was transplanted into CodeWalrus when I co-founded it in October 2014. However, the TI community has mutated over the years, with changes in people's habits and priorities, reducing the amount of people who could contribute full time. In addition to that, some people might not necessarily feel comfortable with too many staff privileges. But then, what if those people still wanted to give us an hand?
This is why we are pleased to announce the introduction of a new staff group called Part-time maintenance and a position called Topic management! With the addition of the Part-time maintenance group, Streetwalrus is now able to stay in the team, at the server maintenance position! Besides those changes, Juju is now in charge of site funding. I am also now part of the Topic management group, although all its permissions are already available in the Forum maintenance group by default.
Now for the site itself, there have been quite a lot of updates since last week's events:
-There is now a forum navigation on the site front page portal, so you can access your favorite sub-forums faster! Thanks to SiNaN from SimplePortal website, this navigation is dynamic, so it will update itself automatically!
And finally, we are working on our first newsletter, which will be sent via e-mail soon for those who have them enabled. The CodeWalrus newsletter will have an edition at the end of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall and summarize major site events, updates and member projects and releases. Another surprise is coming soon as well.
Happy codewalrifying and thanks for the support!

People on Cemetech have analyzed TI-84 Plus CE Flash applications that Texas Instruments released a few days before. It appears that they contains a 2048-bits signature. The signature key is required to sign APPs and make them valid for use on the new ez80 calculator, and there is no sign that Texas Instruments have any plans to release a SDK to develop such software.
Since factoring an key this large is impossible with today's technology, could this mean that the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE will be locked down against third-party Flash APPs and be restricted to only a few developers such as TI themselves? ASM programs are possible to write no matter the outcome of this, so 3rd-party ASM development on those new calculators is perfectly safe, but in some cases, choosing a 8xp ASM file over a Flash APP is not the ideal situation, especially if TI decides also to add an executable code limit to that new calculator line, like the 8 KB limit on the TI-83+. Or could TI be planning a paid SDK? After all, back in the early 2000's, Flash APP development costed money before TI finally decided to make the SDK free of charge.
In conclusions, there is a possibility that for the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE, we might be limited to the Asm() command to launch native language softwares.
