So what is everyone up to?
« on: October 16, 2011, 11:21:09 pm »
I noticed that last week there was a giant (and unusually high) spike in forum activity but as weekend arrived it went like poof, like if all of a sudden lots of people could no longer access Omni altogether, although there are still a lots of guests online (and traffic) for some reasons.

Is it because people are busier this week and decided to spend all their time on the forums last week, is it that some people went inactive because the spam section is temporarily gone, is the OmnomIRC update an issue preventing people to post, is it the weather or are we expecting more progress on some calc projects soon? I'm curious what is everyone up to, since last year even at this time of the year a lot of people were still around, but I did see years where everyone was quiet right now but this year seemed weird as it went from an unusually high activity straight to about 3 times lower than last year O.O. Yesterday I can understand since the majority of our French users were on TCAP voice-chatting, but today was kinda weird since last year Sundays were usually the busiest days. Even Cemetech seems kinda quiet since the past few days.

I myself ended up on a weird schedule last week and next week and as a result I work 6 evening shifts in a row, add to that a daytime shift friday in addition to my evening one that day, so I had time to catch up on some updates last week, but then I got pretty busy and needed more sleep, so less posting from me D:

Yeah I like it to. Actually when does PSAT/SAT usualy occurs? I remember some people were talking about it in September or so, but is it supposed to be fixed in October or can it be anywhere in the first semester?  Also how do you work on 3 contest entries at once? O.o

Also yeah TCAP yesterday brought our French users there so that can be understood. I was more wondering about today, though, since Sundays used to be the busiest days last year. I also appended stats for about 10 days every year in my first post so you can compare. Last year it remained consistent, while this year it goes from higher to much lower.

Eeems: They have Rona outside Quebec? O.o

I haven't noticed any decrease in my own activity. For some reason right now I'm being drawn towards making a decent editor for BBC Basic.

PSAT is always in October; SATs are throughout the year. As for the contest entries, I'm translating my readme.txt for Reversi little by little into French, a language I hardly know (I really shouldn't have made the English one so long lol), and I'm actively working on Madness and a secret entry for the Axe/xBASIC portion of zContest :D

I'm working on homework, school projects, Minecraft, and sleep. Mostly the projects part. I've also been planning a tutorial that I may decide to write when my schedule clears up.

Full-time job, and stupid yard work on weekends
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

That seems nice Deep Thought and Willrandship. I hope you eventually announce updates on the forums once you got a lot done (assuming you didn't do so already).

Also that reminds me, does anyone think it would be a waste of time to convert my old grayscale tutorial to BBCode for the tutorials section? It's very outdated and the english isn't very good, but now that DoorsCS has Omnicalc compatibility maybe some people could still find it useful?

I am up to no good ^^ but honestly, my internet access is limited these days, and comp access especially so, so i cant update as frequently as I used to.

Do you mean parents have restricted it or because you are busy?
