It was in the office of my school xD, they took it out of the lost and found so someone couldn't just take it so this morning I asked and they handed it over...

So it was sitting there for 4 weeks and I could have got it
Glad that it was safe and that you found it. I was a bit worried that it got stolen, since that is common. Never leave your calc outside your pant pockets by the way if possible, or if that's impossible, always keep it with you when you go see the teacher and stuff.

I've told on IRC about a friend losing his calculator and buying a new one. Well, it was laying on his desk at home the whole time. So, just don't leave it on a desk at all :P

Yeah, when I left it I was distracted so accidents can't always be helped <_<

What surprises me P4nix is how it would disappear from his home, unless someone broke into his home or that his parents were unable to use it and thought it was a broken electronic better off in the trash bin.


Also, while some students might not steal calculators that are left unattended in classrooms, I often heard stories about people who will do a full memory reset as a prank. Bye bye your programs.


EDIT: Also I'm glad I bought this game last year: http://www.ebay.ca/sch/Video-Games-/139973/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=bomberman+64+the+second+attack&_sop=15 (it used to be $80 but I got it for $60 and now it's $130)

Update on my collection:



Notes:
- The 3 transparent ones were not physically there, so I photoshopped them in...
- I meant CM-C* in the top left
- I think I'm missing one TI-Nspire non-CAS clickpad, as well, not sure where I put it...

Nice, I only have 5 calcs (and two are primes :P)

A lot of my calculators including TI-81/82/85 went to the oblivion where I can no longer find them.
My CX my brother lost ( >:( ), my nSpire (both v1 and v2) my brother lost ( >:( ) and my TI-89 my brother sold without my permission into a freaking flea market (brain implodes once again just remembering it)

Currently I'm buying another CX from ebay, so it'll soon be seven.

You should keep your stuff away from your bro O.O. Or perhaps make him pay them back. Btw was your bro the DualBDLR/BalancedFury guy from Omni who suddenly vanished off the face of the earth around 2012?

Also, out of curiosity, do you plan to do any programming on the TI-Nspire? Since you have been gone for three years, you probably missed out on the new TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and the TI-84 Plus CE. The CSE is discontinued now, but the CE is its successor and is much faster, so if I was you, then I would consider looking at the TI-84+CE before buying a TI-Nspire CX. It can do BASIC (with some libs coming soon, although one already exists), ASM and it even supports C. The TI-83 Premium CE is cheaper and is almost identical, but shipping fees might offset the cost and the keypad is in French.

While the TI-84+CE doesn't have the power of TI-Nspire ASM/C, it still can pull off some very good games and porting old monochrome games isn't as hard. We already have a 2D Portal game, Pac-Man, Tetris, Galaxian, Breakout, Snake, an ASCII-art RPG and if Silence doesn't use pictures, then you could probably even port it after adjusting the coordinates. The CSE predecessor even has xLIB and Celtic, but it's also coming to the CE in the near future (as part of Doors CE 9)

It is indeed him :P

I'm already getting my CX within a week so I'll probably wait a more for CE if I'm getting one. Programming on it though, I haven't thought about it yet.

P-EDIT: Silence uses "appvars" that are basically a picture files in disguise,

alexgt

Yeah, when I found out about the Nspire I rushed to buy it but then found the Prime, then saved $100 more and got it xD so be careful what you buy and poke around. But I am just saying this as a general statement though, so still get a Nspire I would say :P

Ah I see. I wonder why he disappeared, although perhaps when he sold your calcs he was ashamed and left the community in case of retaliation :P (or maybe he left cuz he got bored of calcs and sold yours to piss you off or something?)

And do you mean the hacked pics vars? Because that could cause problems then. The CE supports them (via some weird BASIC program for the 83 that happens to run fine on the CE), but I don't think TI-Connect CE will let you transfer them, and unlike on the 84+, you cannot group 8xi files on the CSE/CE, because they're archived by default like apps and takes 22 KB each.

GuyInFreezer

He just lost interest lol

Also it's kinda like a hacked pic file but it's in appvar format. It was made so that it is no longer a picture file but still has a same data as a picture file so that a pic loader that I made with axe can pick it up, read its content, and use it like a picture file. I could've smushed like 10 pic data together to reduce the # of appvar needed but I wanted as much RAM as possible.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah right. Perhaps the file could be disassembled and ported to CE/CSE ASM. But then you would need something to display the picture I guess (maybe someone could make a CE program that can display monochrome pics (or with 2 colors of your choice) that are in the same data format as on monochrome calcs, but zoomed up 3x on the color models?

As for RAM, couldn't you read the pic data from archive?
