Overclock your calculator

Old school calculator

Seems that someone has taken the time to write a HOWTO on overclocking your Texas Instruments calculator. An excerpt:

Expansion and upgrades are becoming more and more popular as knowledge about the internal workings of the TI graphing calculators continues to grow. Years ago I accelerated my own TI-85 (original instructions by Boris Lutz and Keith L. Miller). Curently, the TI-81, TI-82, TI-83, TI-85, TI-86, TI-89, TI-92,a nd TI-92 Plus can be accelerated. The 81, 85 and 86 can be accelerated to approximately 2-3x their normal speed, about 18 MHz. The TI-82 and TI-83 can also be accelerated to about 1.5-2x normal speed. They only about double their speed to around 12 MHz. The TI-89 and 92 can be accelerated to around 20 MHz!

My TI is just gathering dust at the moment. Could be a nice project for a rainy day.
