My favorite TI exploit was a TI-86 program which ran continuously in the background (like one of those old DOS TSR programs...). It made it so that if you tried to clear the memory, it would write "Mem cleared. Defaults set." and dim the screen, but not actually clear anything. Very useful for gaming after math tests.

I had to wikipedia TI. Here in Australia, it seems every calculator is a Casio.

I would have to disagree. All the calculators at my school are currently TI-83+, but they are slowly being fazed out in favour of TI-84s. It still annoys the hell out of me that pretty much every student has a phone with more power than a TI, yet we're still forced to pay $100 for a second hand one bought from the school's hire program, and it has the mental capacity of a chimp. Surely an update is required by now, considering that the technology is now so updated....
But anyway, blah blah blah etc.
