Ten years--wow. Ten years ago, I was a six-year-old in a hospital with a teal gameboy color from my dad.
I feel like I just got to know the awesome, awesome DJ, and now he's being torn away. I <3 U DJ
That's unusual. Exactly ten years ago my dad gave me a teal gameboy color, but instead of being in a hospital bed I was on a flight. Anyways it's been a hell of a time with you DJ. I remember you welcoming me into Omnimaga after my first post announcing that I got a Prizm. Then in the months following I was promoted to ARS and then CoT by you. I thank you for not just providing the best calc forum ever and helping me succeed here, but mainly for being such an honest reliable friend that I will always miss  :'(

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

Wow, 10 years. Happy anniversary, DJ.

What about that is unusual?

I still remember the TI-82 I picked up and learned to program 7 years ago. Wow, I feel old too....

It'll be 5 years ago for me, I got my 83+ on my birthday (which is somewhat before school begins) and immediately started to try every single feature of it, eventually learned TI-BASIC by myself.

2 years ago I got an 84SE for school.  I remember trying to find the menu of commands for programming.  :P

Good luck in life DJ!  Hope you can stay for as long as possible.  ;)

I remember when I first got my calc as well..like 18 months ago
I didn't buy it or anything but I found it where my older sister had abandoned it in the hallway as she moved out.
I think the first thing I entered into the program editor was HI WHAT IS THIS without quotes or anything :P  Calc's the first thing I've programmed btw.
then I found the ti website, then calcg, spent a week or two in the tutorials at TIBD (didn't learn much), and through calcg ticalc.
Axe feature happened and I came here, lurked a lurked a week or two, then registered.  Been here ever since.

These are some great forums DJ, and hope you can stick around as long as you can :D

Wow, same for me. I must have gotten my calc at around the same time, too.

Long time, and DJ's had them for ten O.O

Wow, compared to you guys, I'm still a n00b. I got my nspire just over two years ago. I decided on an nspire because I looked at the hardware specs and thought "oh cool, I can run Linux on it" :P, not knowing how far away that was from happening. With ndless, though, Linux is now much closer. :) I remember messing around with TI-BASIC on the 84+ emulator, before ndless was around, and getting frustrated by the limited capabilities of nspire basic. Then, I came across the nspire hacking thread on United-TI, and followed it for a while, and then I must've clicked a link that took me here :D

I hope you can still stick around for a while DJ, and knowing you it will happen. With things like Axe, Ndless, and Lua to carry us into the next decade, you can feel reassured that the community isn't going to die out.

I've been programming since Sept of '09, which is when I got my calc. I floundered around for a bit, and then I went through TIBD's tutorials, and then, last February, I got Axe, and came here.

Wow, compared to you guys, I'm still a n00b. I got my nspire just over two years ago.
I'm an ultra-n00b: I got my first graphing calculator (the nspire cas) for school in august of 2010!
I think I first got here when googling "nspire lua games" in april.
I idled around for about a month before I finally joined here.
I've only been programming since February, and I can't even begin to imagine being able to do it for 10 years. That's just incredible.

I'm almost ready to cry IRL. I love you, and the community you've created. I love Omnimaga, it's not just because of the awesome games I can get and talk about, it's the nicest community I've ever been in. Ok, my nose is tingling and my eyes are stinging (I'm gonna cry :'() and I really don't want to you go! I wish you the best of luck, DJ_O, in all of your troubles and all of your hardships. I'm too sad to say anything else. :'(

Don't worry, hopefully I can stay around for a bit. I just don't know how active I will be except for the last two weeks of this month. My worry is that days where I do not post might become more and more frequent. As you noticed in June, often I wasn't even the top poster and sometimes, I wasn't even in the list.

@Deep Thought actually I only had my 83+ since 2001. In Feb 2002 I got a 83+SE, my bro got a 83+ in Nov 2001 which I own since 2008, but besides that, all my other calcs were bough between march 2007 and january 2011.
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

The amount of time you've spent with your calculator has little to do with whether or not you're a n00b.
