What year, to be exact, was the TI-85 discontinued?? 22.214.171.124 00:42, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)
TiCalc.org no longer points to a useful site, so I have removed its link in the TI-85 article. -Chrono 04:30, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

First to run assembly?
"This development made the TI-85 the first graphing calculator that allowed assembly programs."
I have one and it doesn't support assembly, at least not in an offical fashion. You can compile assembly programs and upload them to run on hacked ROMS, but that works on all of the calculators that allow you to upload new ROM.
EDIT: Sorry, that should probably be 'firmware,' not ROM, but you catch my drift. -Njyoder - 188.8.131.52 08:29, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
One of the worst things that can happen: loss of your programs and data painstakingly keyed in on that keyboard did happen. Not just to the loss off all battery power, but the very power saving mode turning off the Ti-85 during compilation would cause a nasty data loss crash.
The Computer link was a saving grace. The 1.1 link version did not allow you to edit things on your computer. The 2nd version of the link was gray in color and did allow you to edit your programs on the computer and then upload them to the Ti-85 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:45, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
TI 85 Quirks
The TI-85 does some strange things that probably deserve at least some comment in the article.
For example, implicit multiplacation has the highest priority in the order of operations (and how it applies to the temperature converter), only graphing half of a function depending on how it is entered, problems from power save auto off activating while compiling, and maybe some other things.
- Generally quirks, gripes, and common problems are to be avoided unless well known and cited in reliable, edited, and refereed publications. Common problems are encyclopedic as they usually are written as a result of personal experience rather than academic citation. Nicholas SL Smithchatter 19:06, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
