The sad part of my weekend was that my good friend my TI-89 Calculator has passed away. I got it in the 9th grade for an outragous $200 they are now down to about $120 or so and going to go pickup a new onen for my summer math class. That calculator was like the coolest shit ever. It predated cell phone text messaging. Writing Notes in the notepad and passing them back and forth in the Pre-Calc in 11th Grade. Trig was awesome. I remember the other people that had a TI-89 in my classes in high school were working on a theory of a hub to setup a multiplayer game of Tetris. Those were the days. People called us geeks then. But for some reason I think we are a bit more apprciated. We always mocked those with the TI-83. What you don’t have the solve() feature? That sucks to be you! Wait you don’t have the factor() feature? What a shame. I remember we would take notes with the text editor and have a leg up on those with the older calculators. I remember many nights up coding on my calculator just so I could run a program that would instant split screen to the Table and the Graph so I could input what the value I wanted for X to be and have all the possible variations. They have since changed the tool so you can program on a computer and upload to the calculator.
But anyways hope everyone had a good weekend. As I work out the kinks and bugs with Ubercaster me and Mike have a Podcast to do. Lots of cool news to talk about. The blogosphere and the podosphere will collide and we will have an explosion of sexiness all around the internet universe.
