ticalc.org is hiring
Posted by Magnus on 8 December 2002, 14:45 GMT

Ok, so we're hiring. The post we are currently after is primary news editor. This means that you will be actively "hunting" for news to post on our site, both from outside sources and from our file archive. Secondary work expected if you have the time include surveys and maintaining static content on our site (it should not be quite as static as it currently is).

So, what's required of you? Mainly time. Doing news can take a lot of time - talking to a lot of people, reading a lot of sites... Naturally, a decent familiarity with "the TI scene" as it is today is also required, so you'd know how and where to find things to post. As for special skills, none are really required. You will need to be reasonably fluent in the written English language. While we happily accept staff members from outside the US (see our current staff listing for proof of this), English is the only language used on our site.

Sounds interesting? Let us know at newstaff@ticalc.org. Please include the following information:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Age
  • Current level of education (finished or unfinished)
  • Where you live (town/state/country)
  • Approximate amount of time you think you can put into this per week
  • Quick summary of relevant experience
  • A quick motivation on why we should pick you
  • If you have MSN or AIM or similar as means for us to contact you

We will accept applications until Dec 22nd.
Also, please note that we are looking for a long-term commitment. If you think you only have time or want to do this for a couple of months, we are currently not interested.

Update (22/12): Ok, no more applications. There were a lot though, so it'll take us a while to get through them all.

Thanks to all those who sent in applications. We may not be able to respond to each of you in person unless further questions are required.

Maybe they should get more people to focus on uploading the flippin' archives then on worrynig about news where over 50% has no importance. December 7th to the 19th still waiting. (by the time they update all those programs mine will be on their site in febuary! (No offense to the uploaders I'm just sayin now they've got lots a work to do)!

Yep :) Perhaps they should add a posting limit of like 500 or something, and if the limit is reached, the staff has the option of letting it continue (if it's on-topic or something) or making it read-only.

I'd work for no pay, but the thing I'd most want to do is become a reviewer! I could download games on the site, review them, analyze, etc. and then write a tiny summary of the game and rate it and stuff. Are you hiring anyone in that area?

It's BeowUlf, and no, it's not about wolves. It's an Old English (as in, the Germanic langauge that the average English speaker will never be able to speak) epic poem about a man blessed by God with superhuman strength who does battle with a demon, a demoness, and a dragon. It's actually pretty good. I'm using it as a tool to teach myself Old English. For example (my grammar here won't be perfect):

Michael is min nama. "Michael is my name."
Ic sprece Englische Ealde. "I speak Old English"
Cyning grete Biscope. "The King greets the Bishop" or "The Bishop greets the King".


and from the prologue in Beowulf:

HwŠt! We Gardena in geardagum,
■eodcyninga, ■rym gefrunon,
hu ­a Š■elingas ellen fremedon.
Oft Scyld Scefing scea■ena ■reatum,
monegum mŠg■um, meodosetla ofteah,
egsode eorlas. Sy­­an Šrest wear­
feasceaft funden, he ■Šs frofre gebad,
weox under wolcnum, weor­myndum ■ah,
o­■Št him Šghwylc ■ara ymbsittendra
ofer hronrade hyran scolde,
gomban gyldan. ■Št wŠs god cyning!

"Listen:
You have heard of the Danish Kings
in the old days and how
they were great warriors.
Shield, the son of Sheaf,
took many an enemy's chair,
terrified many a warrior,
after he was found an orphan.
He prospered under the sky
until people everywhere
listened when he spoke.
That was a good king!"

Yes, I can understand what that said.

Not having a go, but as far as old english is concerned, look at Tolkeins work, anything older just as well be german What you wrote looked more that way.

Tolkein uses words that really should be used today but aren'y, Twixt, ere, twain, etc.

they are proper words.

and refering to the comment about the average english speaker, well they are now completely different languages, Strange how society changes over time.

If you can't tell, I'm a real language geek. Surprisingly enough, I'm not an English major. I'm like this with every type of language; I'm a musician, a programmer, a multi-lingual speaker/writer, and mathematician. Anything even slightly language-esque is both entertaining and easy for me.

I have a feeling that whoever made the "fake" accounts either saw my post and changed them, or he didn't use "doorsxp" for all of the accounts. :(

That would be the problem, it benefits everyone. If it just benefitted the supporter, then there would be plenty of people looking for the job, but if it is a "benefits all" situation, then I figure you'll do it, and you figure I'll do it.

Personally, my issue is that I'd rather do something local, as apposed to an internet collaborative project. If I work with local orgs, etc. I see the benefits more tangibly than via the internet.

The problem with free sites looking for free help is "must comitt to 12000000 hours of work each week" yet the work does not put bread on the table, so most people would comit like one hour. BTW: If there is a one hour job, I would consider taking it, but my time is limited these days.

I agree. w00t is almighty, and it is used all the time in ticalc.org, and it has never been heard at any school that I know of.

But, seriously...

I thought I read somewhere on an old comment (written around 1998) that w00t was an expression used by programmers and computer junkies because it is a numerical value that is equal to a significant number in our base-10 counting system. What is this number, and why is it important enough to express joy in the form of w00t? 10,000 programmers can't all be wrong about w00t.

I think I read it in a comment under Program Ideas and then under Game Ideas on this site. Someone else like me asked the same question, and the response was the significance when it is translated into Base-10. I think they even said that hackers use the term a lot because it breaks a firewall or something.

That's a lot of power for such a small number like w00t!

"w00t" is also the password for calclock! (prgm I made... needs some improvement)

All calclock does it turn off the calculator. (it's in C, so you can't use [ON]) It gives you 10 seconds to type in the password when turned back on. If you don't type in "w00t" by then, it turns back off. Great for keeping idiotic little cr33ps away from your calc :)

Don't bother. If you were here regularly within the past 2 months or so, you'd see the beginning of the "fakes." The keep on creating user accounts that look similar to those of others (me, for example) and post profane messages.

Yep, they are spelt the same way.
But the Original pronunciation was leftenent (??), and not leutenent. I'm not saying you yanks say it wrong, we say it differently, I was just stating it's original form.

Keep saying lieutenant. It sounds really wierd after just a couple of times.

Another example of bad pronunciation is router (with respect to computing).

This is something the 're-directs' something. It does not cut wood.
although they do have the same spelling.
the computing term comes from route and the wood wrking tool, I believe, comes from the word rout - to remove.

And, the final example of bad pronouciation is this.

A theory, by definition, is:

A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.

The definition is the same in every context. Therefore, in 'real life' as you call it (...), a theory is the same as it would be in math: something that holds true in every provable case.

A good way to improve your writing skills is to read as much as possible. Seriously. I read all the time - fiction, newspapers, textbooks, etc. Take note of the styles and techniques used by popular and successful writers, and incorporate them into your own. A Harvard vocabulary doesn't hurt, either. Read the dictionary! I did (in elementary school; and the Encyclopaedia Brittanica as well), and I can define nearly any word. Reading reference books, as bizarre as it may seem, really can help.

The main point: Read! Any time, any place - if you have nothing better to do, read something!

Reading anything

Also read old books--they tend to use better vocabulary than post-1950s books. I read things like Pellucidar by Edgar Rice Burroughs (see http:// www.geocities.com/ Area51/Shadowlands/ 6696/pellucidar.html ). Books from that time period are great for enlarging vocabulary without reading dictionaries.

A dictionary is a book filled with the definitions of many words. You can look words up by their first letter, and their subsequent letters if that's not enough to find them. ;-)

I kind of disagree with this. If you want to speak English, speak the queens english, not Harvard english... Oops sorry just a joke. But seriously, don't read a dictionary. Read loads of literature, especially old stuff. If you don't know the meaning of the word, look it up and learn it. If you can't spell the word, then look it up, and learn how.
The dictinary might be great for spelling, but some of it's descriptions are one-sided and inaccurate. Oh, and don't just trust our english teacher, they aren't normally intellegent.

And, yes English should have a capital E not lowercase.

Well, I'm not saying *only* read the dictionary. Read other things as well, of course. I'm just suggesting to those who have spelling difficulties that it's a good way to fix many of your problems. "They're/their/there", "two/too/to", "well/we'll", and so on.

Cheer up.

Programming skills build writing skills. The more you program, the better you are able to write, solve problems, do math, understand science, and apply many other useful talents that programming unlocks. Practicing a skill like programming stimulates other areas of your brain and makes you better at your abilities and talents (at least, that is the theory).

In your case, you can use your programming skills to relate to your vocab-building skills and writing skills. After all, if you are a programmer, you are an author. Both people write stuff, but the programmer writes more complicated works.
