So I have had this idea for a while and I know it will work but I, as of now am not as equipped as I need to be to start and I need your help ;). First of all what language should I learn to be able to communicate to the calc, and where would I get a wireless receiver for my prime? and also how would I tell when a new post has been posted.

Later I think I can connect it to IRC!

I will be using the messaging system for communication between computer and calc.

I have seen similar things done with the messaging system on the prime but have never done anything like it so I need your help :P

Hm good question. I know this is possible to communicate between a computer and the calc using HP PPL, but I don't know if there is any language for the PC end of it that is better. Do you know C? I also don't know if anyone would be able to help here, but we never know.

Another thing is that I don't think the wireless thing works on hardware A models. It only works on hardware C.

Maybe you can use the same way nRemote used to talk to/from the Nspire. Basically encoding stuff with pixels colors (done in Nspire Lua), to send to the PC (which would grab a screenshot and decode it), and from pc, it would be with remote key sending.
IDK if the Prime has such a protocol though.

There are HP PPL commands to read text from the computer to the HP Prime. I think the one who demonstrated it was Erwin Ried or something. There was a Youtube video about it, but I think it used his PrimeComm linking software, which supposedly no longer works on newer firmwares.
