Calculator Chess, Anyone? Prologue

Calculator Chess, Anyone? Prologue

   Welcome back to DarthSirius394's blog!

   As you may have noticed, I changed my username from DarthCerius394 to DarthSirius394 because DarthSirius matches the letters from Nintendo DS. Just a little heads up!

   So, you might be wondering, what the heck is this guy talking about, calculator chess??? Well, I happen to own this TI-nspire CAS calculator that can do all sorts of nifty things on it. One of these features is a geometrey app, which can measure, create shapes, do constructions, and all sorts of other useful things. So one day, as I was thinking how I could get some more chess into my life, I had a great idea:

   Why not just create a chess board on my calculator?

   I've made other things on my calculator before, and I thought that with my knowledge of the calculator's abilities, I could probably create a chessboard, moveable pieces, and an algebraic coordinate system in order to record the moves done (I would use a Notes App to create a move-recorder).

   So, how am I going to do this? Stay tuned as I give play-by-play accounts on the progress of my chessboard every couple of days.

   e4 is awesome,
