Happy New Year!
Posted on 1 January 1999, 01:00 GMT

Happy New Year to everyone from the staff here at ticalc.org. Hopefully 1999 will be as much of a successful year as 1998 was. We have a lot in store for the site this year, stay tuned for more details.

That may be true, but all posts are measured by GMT, and not by your time. So it is New Years. To people in Australia, this came, what, almost a day late?

Happy New Year everyone! I'm a little buzzed right now so I apologize ahead of time for any spelling mistakes. Whoa! Three sentences w/out a mistake. I guess I'm just as good of a typist regardless of my BAC. Woo hoo! Have a safe year everyone!

on the head of a pin

yeah, and it'd fit on the head of a pin and have a little device called a VDR. (virtual retinal desplay) which sends an encoded beam of light to your retina stimulating the receptors and giving you a high quality screen that the teacher can't see. it'd have a dvd player that you could put in your backpack and a brainwave scanner. using an ultra narrow field audio stream you could watch a dvd movie with full sound and nobody would be the wiser.

and everybody would have one.

yeah, right.

but we'd sure as hell love to have one.

The problem with the encrypted beam directly to the retina would be if the calc was caught in an infinite loop, it could burn out your eyes, also, people would start to wonder why you held your eyes so wide open and didn't blink much. Oh well.

i was being serious about the VRD. there is really such a thing. but your right, suddenly Mr. Glabinskie has 39 kids bug-eyed at their calcs. hooohooo! now that's hilarious!

How about LCD encased in your glasses / contacts? (sidebar: why does everyone with a ti-calc also wear corrective lenses? has anyone else noticed this? is there some sort of "geek gene" that makes you A) get all sorts of electronic crap and B) have bad eyesight? Or is it just from squinting at the little screens? 8)) They'res plenty of unused space in your skull (mostly in the back, it's true) for a processor, and if you could somehow use actual brain cells for storage, who knows how many games you could have? course 'tho it would suck if it crashed...

one of these days, the word "graphing calculator" will be gone and people will just call them "palmpilots" or simply a "laptop" at the rate of technology, we may be able to go to the moon by pushing the (lift)off button! "Houston, we have a problem. My batteries are rinning low... Switching to Mario mode..."
