  1. I think it's high time to include a section here on the venerable TI 58/59/66/95 calculators as they represent an important legacy If you have an interesting program you'd like to share, please post it here. My favorite source of programs for them is the venerable French magazine Jeux & Strategie published in the 80's. I have all of the first 30 classic issues and you can find high quality scans of them here: http://www.abandonware-magazines.org/affiche_mag.php?mag=185&page=1 . I never go on a long flight without one of these issues in my bag along with the compact TI 66 to play with! Here's a game called Ricochet from issue 17 (Oct-Nov 1982) to get things started: You have to uncover 4 atoms hidden in an 8x8 grid by sending laser beams through the grid and analyzing the output. The beam can be either deviated or absorbed. The entry and exit points of the laser beam is given by their x,y coordinates. In the above example, beam one (0,11) is first deviated then absorbed. Beam 2 (0,15) is deviated and exits from (4,18). And so on. Study the image above closely to deduce how the deviation process works. To run the program, first enter a value between 0 and 1 then press A. After a bit of time 0 will appear on the display, indicating that the atoms have now been hidden. To send a beam, enter first its x coordinate followed by R/S, then its y coordinate followed by R/S again. It can take from a few seconds to several minutes for the calculator to respond. If the beam is absorbed, it will display 0, otherwise its exit point will be displayed as xx.yy. For example, if the exit point is (6,9), the display will show 6.9. Repeat as needed until you think you have uncovered all 4 atoms' locations. You can find out by using RCL 1 to 4, displaying all of the coordinates for the atoms. To try a new game, enter a new value between 0 and 1 then press A again. Don't forget to RST before running the program! I tested out the program on a TI 66 and it works great! There was a typo in the listing which I corrected in the image on top.
