    Default FT: TI-85 graphing calculator

    Okay, I have my TI-85 from the college days... practically unused, sitting in original box and complete. It's back to school time, and if anyone wants it, it's up for trade...

    For reference, here is a recently completed ebay item (not mine):

    Seeking display quality copy of I Want My Mommy for the 2600... if you have one, PM me, I will pay/trade well.

    For those who don't know, you can play games on it. I've got tetris, dr mario, space invaders, breakout, and a few others on mine. It is a great way to get a gaming fix in at work. People see you plugging away at your calculator and have no clue you're playing a game.

    Yes. Just do a search on TI-86 and programs or games and you will find some links to walk you through it. One great site is:

    You will need to pick up the serial to TI programing cable. I got mine a few years ago at Target.

    Everytime I would plug away at my TI83 during trig class, people KNEW I was playing games. Maybe I just don't look like a worker, who knows?

    Or maybe it was the constant cry of "Dammit" and "Oh shit, gonna lose again."

    If only I'd known I could have played games on my TI-85 when I took College Algebra...

    ...if only I'd known.
    We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
