WARNING: DO NOT UPGRADE your TI-83 Premium CE or TI-84 Plus CE to OS 5.5.1 and higher. It removes all compatibility with most games and removes ASM/C programming! DOWNGRADING IS IMPOSSIBLE. BE WARNED! Likewise, do NOT update your TI-Nspire CX past OS 4.5.0, else using Ndless and ASM/C programs will be impossible.

I'm not sure. I also had the same problem when I tried to plug something that isn't the router my ISP gave me. (Which is also your ISP.) I suspect MAC filtering, or maybe some weird unsupported or unconfigured feature the modem or the ISP needed.

In any case, it's not super secure to plug a desktop computer directly on the Internet these days, unless it's been configured correctly.
Oh, you plugged it directly into the modem, that might be why.
Okay, it looks good so far. What about this?

Code (bash) Select
ip addr
(edit: we're checking it out in dms, will post results)
Step 1: Identify your ethernet device

Open a terminal and type this:

Code (bash) Select
lspci | grep Ethernet
That would be easier to google if you know what it is, and if it's detected at all.

Step 2: Check if the lights on the ethernet port on both sides are on. If not, either the port or the cable might be dead.
So, comparing the specs, it's about 3000 times slower than it should?

You can transfer Python scripts without having to flash the firmware since version 1.4.0. That's what the workshop is for.
Oh, that's cool, then.
From what I understand, you basically only have Python scripts to care of, and apps have to be compiled into the firmware as of now, so memory management isn't super useful as you probably wouldn't fill your calc full of Python scripts. (But eh, knowing DJ he would xD) That is, until there's a way to do file transfers without recompiling and transfering the firmware again.
Remember back in 2016-2018 when we had ads? We made sure they weren't annoying and full of viruses, and as a result, that probably was the most hilarious experiment we've ever done on the site. Our members paid to have their "I lost the game" s***posts to show up, and even fellow forums Omnimaga and Cemetech joined in the fun. At one point, it probably paid for almost half of our operating expenses.

Unfortunately, all fun have to come to an end, and in 2018 Project Wonderful closed its doors due to social networks stealing the views away from independent websites. As a result, we had to turn the ads off, since it's the only ad network we thought made sense at the time.

Enter Comicad Network, who in 2019 built a new ad network out of Project Wonderful's ashes. I was kinda put off at first since they only seemed to allow webcomics and comic-like sites, but as I was setuping my webcomic this week (go read it!), I also applied for CodeWalrus (they allow video games sites, close enough) and sure enough it worked. And sure enough, we get the same kind of ads as we got back on Project Wonderful. This is gonna be fun.

So here you go. Ads. Have fun with them.

Also if you've read until now, we ran out of money to pay for the server again (life's kinda hard with this pandemic thing) so y'all should also click here and give us all of your money. Well, if you can.

Whew. Looks like they picked a specific set of requirements no open source licence can adequately cover. At this point they could create a new license.
From what I see, the code is under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license, which is kinda weird for code, but eh, it's legit.

Wonder what happened with KnightOS, though. The guy probably gave all of his time to his Linux window manager. Which I currently use as a daily driver.

Edit: I see a bunch of commits from this week, looks like someone picked it back up. Nice.
Been playing with this last night, that's pretty cool :)

It's on its own separate website now :)

Do it! I don't think I've heard about it yet, how long has it been around?

Yeah, I'm kinda out of the loop these days.

Buy, use, tinker and develop with platforms from other competitors that actually care: Casio, HP, NumWorks, SwissMicros... Spread the good word. Seriously, TI will never learn unless their bottom line hurts, so make theirs hurt.

Yeah, sounds like a good plan.

Quote from: Jean-Baptiste Boric on June 09, 2020, 07:22:05 pmThe main developer community around the NumWorks calculator is the Omega firmware, which is a fork of the official epsilon firmware. The biggest problem right now is the lack of manpower and the fact that unlike TI or Casio there is not a rich legacy to build upon. On the other hand, there's plenty of stuff to invent from the ground up if that's what you're after.

I'd like seeing some more love to NumWorks in here on CW, porting some games and stuff :) That ought to give a message to TI.
The huge problem is indeed the exam mode being required by governments. The original intent was to do anything you want outside exam mode and to restrict functionalities when it's on without the teachers requiring to delete everything on the calc. But since this concept came quite late into the design of current calcs, TI struggles to make it fit.

One thing I thought was to act as an official third-party provider of apps, I asked TI-Cares but they don't seem to have any official way to sign apps for their latest lines of calcs, recommending me instead to develop for their old original TI-83 Plus line.

In the meantime, supporting Numworks really seems to be a good idea, their ROM is open source last time I checked and if you know ways to improve it, well go for it :) I really wish they successfully launch outside of France and manage to take away a bunch of market parts in the USA.
