Just wanted to introduce myself as the new kid on the block
« on: October 27, 2011, 12:14:05 pm »
Well back when I was in highschool (2004-2006),  I learned how to program in z80 assembly.  I did not make any extraordinary programs or games though.  Well I just recently found my TI-83 Plus and my silver link usb cable, when I thought of all the good times and memories this little calculator brought me.  I decided to look up the old scene and see what was going on.  Well there has been lots of progress in the past 5 years, but I also see the scene has died down a whole lot since I was active.  I have been looking at the axe parser as what I want to start out with and then maybe move my way into asm again.  I have been working some with the axe parser and I wish we had this thing back in the day cause I could have made some awesome games with the speed of it.  Well enough of me blabbing,  time to get a project started  ._..  Happy coding 8)

Hello gta,

Welcome to Omnimaga. Hope you enjoy your stay. ;D

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Awesome and howdy! Actually, there are some sites that have gotten really slow, but sites like Omnimaga have gotten very active!

Heya and welcome here. And to correct you I think the TI scene has actually picked up again over a year ago. It used to be much more dead around late 06 until early 09. I remember one year there were no major release for z80 calcs at all. In 2010 activity picked up again to levels close to 2004, but the activity shifted to different sites including Omnimaga, as the staff of other sites moved on in real life. Currently it's slightly less active than last Fall, though.

ANyway glad you came back and hopefully you stay around for a while. I myself was active since 2001 but only started participating in discussions around 2003. I don't code anymore since July 2010, though.
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still active in the TI community, but I left Omni back in 2015 for various  reasons. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new online home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.
