ticalc.org Completes IPO
Posted by Michael on 1 April 2004, 00:50 GMT

As many of you know, it costs quite a bit of money to run a website with the astounding level of traffic that we receive. In order to raise enough funds to cover next year's bandwidth expenses, we are pleased (actually, overwhelmingly excited) to announce that ticalc.org has just completed its initial public offering of stock.

We are now traded as a nonprofit corporation on the electronic communications network Archipelago. This allows for 24-hour, real time trades under the ticker symbol CALCS. Our initial public float was 1,000,000 shares at a par value of $0.25 each.

Because of unexpected demand, as of the time of this writing, we expect Isaac to place first in the list of the world's wealthiest people, with a net worth of $76 billion. Magnus is second with a current worth of $43 billion. We have created a stock ticker (quotes delayed 15 minutes) with the current ticalc.org price:

CALCS: $

We thank all of you for investing in us, and hope to continue to serve the community for many more years now!

And then for the 89, of course... Who's in?

Alright, I'm going to write a program that deletes stupid programs like that one. I'll just search for the string "This program is a MUST-HAVE!!!" and then delete all results....it'll be great. It'll be a MUST-HAVE!!!

HTML is not a programming language. It is a scripting language. Difference is, a programming language gets compiled. A Scripting language is compiled as it runs (at runtime).

So, knowing HTML makes you a programmer, but it is not a programming language. ^_^

I wasn't really asking if it can be called a programming language. I know that it is scripting, I was just being sarcastic. However, in my opinion, knowing HTML alone does not make you a programmer...

HTML is not a scripting language, it's a markup language.

TI Basic is a scripting language, though. There are markup languages for TI too, like Nifty Markup Language. Asm is a programming language.

As I said in the poll, this would be an egregious violation of almost every tax code if it was true.
