Nothing important... just sick of seeing "No comments"

People who program mostly BASIC consider themselves programmers?? =)

hey, as long as the programs have no bugs and are useful or fun...

All I've ever done on calcs is BASIC, and that was mostly stuff no one else would find useful. I find it much more relevent to my future career to learn computer programming languages as I am enrolled in Computer Engineering, and I doubt any future employer would hand me a calc and tell me to write a new database for it, as I don't plan to work for TI or HP.

Just because you do not find any relevence to learning TI-BASIC doesn't mean that it's not useful. I learned how to program because of TI-BASIC. (and QBasic) I am sure that there are a lot more people than me that use TI-BASIC to program in class or at school because they don't have a GL or any other cable. While it might not be relevent to your future, it's a good starting point.

I started and learned most BASIC on an Apple IIc almost ten years ago. Back when variables could only be 2 letters and you had to put line numbers on every line. I eventually learned GW-BASIC and then QBasic. Now I'm learning Visual Basic and Visual C++, but I still _have_fun_ programming my TI-92 Plus in the process. I have calculus and engineering courses in college that I actually _use_ my 92+ with.

BASIC is pretty useful lets say if you learn TI-BASIC then you learn some VISUAL BASIC and that knowledge of BASIC helps you out there and you will be better prepared. Most BASIC games suck playing wise, but the knowledge is useful in the future

Ha, ha, ha.
***ALL*** I program in is BASIC, and I consider myself more of a DieHard programmer than most (but definitely not all) assembly programmers. It takes a fair amount of skill to craft such an efficient program like PRIME6. It's a conbination of raw mathematical algorithm *and* implementation. And time.
