Okay, I'll PM Puppian tonight or tomorrow. I'd do it now, but I'm almost done with 3.0.1, so I want to wait until I get that finished and uploaded. About all that's left is going through G2's service pack for anything I didn't already do, and then some final testing.

I added a note to that old thread too, but I don't feel like constantly editing threads when I make new version. So what I'm going to do sometime is set up a page on my website for Pizzapup in general, listing all of them with information and stuff. Then that can link to the forum threads for each version. Then I'll just point to the appropriate page of that site rather than a forum thread.

you might want to add Gdmap with the large file support patch, if you already haven't ... i really don't know if there are any bugs in it or not, but it was a simple patch ... i like the version with the Exit button, but i compiled that on Puppy 108, i think it should be compatible with Puppy 2, but again, i'm not totally certain (well, it works on my machine)

i was thinking of adding Gdmap to SP214

also zcat, which you already know about

you might like the /etc/X11/app-defaults/XCalc file from this:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=16040
it just makes xcalc prettier, and easier to read for people with vision problems

i've been watching the Bugs forum, but i haven't noticed anything to put in SP214

maybe you would like to add a Startup folder to Pizzapup? http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=105182#105182

Thanks, I had intended to grab that Gdmap, but kept forgetting. The other stuff is cool too, but I'm going to hold off on putting them in 3.0.1. I'm trying to limit myself to just porting to 2.14 and fixing some bugs. 3.1[.0] might get them though, especially that startup directory idea.

I'll throw in the patched Gdmap in a couple minutes, and probably upload overnight (I'm at home for the week, so I don't have the "faster than Sonic with three power-rings" internet connection I get in my dorm).

Next I'm working on the web_215.sfs, which will hopefully be semi-compatible with Pizzapup 3.0.1 if you rename it web_301.sfs Twisted Evil

PostPosted: Mon 19 Mar 2007, 19:24    Post subject: Graphing calculator  

Is there a graphing calculator emulator for puppy like ti-86 or ti-89? They are they main calculators used at the colleges in NC. UNC-Charlotte and the Comm. College I am attending use them. is there an emulator with a simple interface? the emulators i have seen did not seem very streamlined or compact. Basically what I am talking about is an ti-86/89 emulator that focuses on the guts of the calculator and non of that sissy photographic quality Gui mess although a layout similar in arrangement would be nice.

I've got a hideous Twisted Evil Calc Lab this week as follows:
triangle formed by line with endpoints y=4 and x=3 find the max area of an inscribed circle. Now that is something to bend your brain around. anyhow I probably just missed something simple.

High hope for 2.15 CE

cb88,

I don't think strict emulators are 'legal', if you have your own calculator, you can get an image directly from the caluculator to use with the emulator. and then that would be legal

A nice (non-emu) graphing calculator program would be cool. I'll add it to my todo-list.

We got to borrow TI-89's last year in my AP Calculus class. I miss mine. It was so much nicer than my TI-83+. I have a sentimental attachment to my 83+ though, as that was the first thing I ever programmed, back in seventh grade.

Yeah I've had a TI-89 since Junior year of high school and have never looked back (i had a TI-86 before)

It is SOOO much better than the 83/84. It has CAS (computer algebra system). It seems like it should be possible to find a nice small app that does just about everything the 89 does, graphing, algebra, 3d graphing. I haven't heard of any. But I guess I haven't really looked hard enough.

If you're going into a technical major (i'm going into Electrical Engineering) I would highly recommend a TI-89 over a 83/84. There are some things that an 83/84 just can't do.

PostPosted: Tue 20 Mar 2007, 10:01    Post subject: Texas calculators  

I've got a TI-85, which is pretty good though the "daddy" of them all had to be the TI-92.

I still miss my old TI-57 though because unlike the modern Texas calculators you could run it directly off the mains, so you could run calculations to do with chaos theory and very slowly converging looped calculations that would take days or even weeks without running the batteries down.

Good luck with PP 3.01.

I thought that i had seen some gpl emulators on a few sites but i haven't tried any of then basically something like what the ntfs drivers do for linux microsoft didn't write them and they aren't perfect but they still work. I have a ti-86 which is the max I can use for my classes because the ti-89 is capable of doing too many things or so they say.
But seriously anybody that would use the emulator would also have a the real one otherwize they probably wouldn't know how to use it or even need to use it given that gnumeric and other programs are more suited for use with computers. whew gotta go.

I forgot about that. Thanks. Let's see... yep, I did add that to my "general ideas" list for the overall Pizzapup project (different from a to-do list for a specific Pizzapup, which I haven't made for the next one yet anyway).

But I don't plan to start another Pizzapup for at least a month, very possibly more. So when I clean up some of the loose ends I've accumulated I'll look into at least finding the program I want to use, and packaging it if it isn't already packaged.

I've tried your distro & its very good - I noticed especially that you got the FUN_game bubbles to work properly. Rolling Eyes
It doesn't work properly in puppy 2.16/.17 - better tell BK what you did, since it might give futher indications of 'whatever!'.

Your distro is the 1st one to be added to my library of 2 (so far). Very Happy

Actually, I didn't do anything at all. I based this puplet off Puppy 2.14, in which the games worked fine. So if they don't work on newer versions, it's something Barry did rather than didn't do. (I haven't used anything newer than 2.14, other than a quick test or four of 2.15 and 2.16.
