Ah cool :D. Plus since people know you here if someone steals the code they'll already know where it came from if they notice it in action elsewhere. Not that anyone would do that I think here.

As for .tk, just keep in mind that 6 years ago, dot.tk used to have pop-ups and was down half of the time, so if it starts causing problems again you migth want to keep a backup solution in case. X.x
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

For the record, my bot code are here: http://code.google.com/p/atombot/source/browse/#svn/trunk
I'm writing a bot that is really awesome... but I'll save that for a very near future post/topic. ;)

I trust the community here and Cemetech to not steal code. It's just unethical, and wrong in so many ways.
Of course, outside that.... that's another thing. But I haven't advertised this project at all outside of this community, so
it's very unlikely to have copy cats. :P

dot.tk recently changed their model, since they realized that a .com/.net/[insert more common TLDs here] is better than their service, and so they've decided to be much more free with their domain names. It's unlikely that they'll change now.

Of course, freedns.afraid.org and co.cc are great alternatives.
If there's money to spend, https://domize.com/ can search out exotic domain names for our use. :)

ALso the community users are kinda close to each others in some way, compared to other communities, even though Cemetech and Omni got large userbases for calc forums. And I see about dot.tk. At one point they were so unreliable that people stopped using them.
