Thank you so much for the community you've created by putting forth the values that you hold close rather than by floundering at the hands of others who don't run sites to the same extent as you do, DJ.  It is because of you that Omnimaga is the nicest, and thus most active, calc forum anywhere.  We owe it to you that we have such a wonderful and thriving community.  Thanks.

And, on a personal note, thank you for interesting me in RPG programming.  Though I know I've never released a finished RPG yet, I have at least two in the works and much of the inspiration in them is from you.  I still stand by my claim that Illusiat 13 is my favorite calc-game of all time.  You made that, and that lead to me first talking to you on TIBD, shortly before you left there.  Soon after I came to Omnimaga because it was more active, and found you again.  You're an awesome person, DJ.  Thank you for the countless conversations, the limitless contributions, and for creating this site.  Thank you for everything.  I hope to see you online in the future, and I hope that everything goes well with you irl.  Good luck! :)

What a fascinating story DJ O, who could imagine (as Deep Thought said) that buying a TI-83+ on some random day would turn out to be the key to making hundreds of people happy (like me) with a fantastic community you founded. I understand you're not so interested in calc-stuff anymore, but you are still one of the most experienced TI Calculators User around here.

I have more things to say about this but I can only do so tomorrow.

Thanks DJ and good luck with whatever you dedicate your life to now :)

Thanks guys. It makes me happy that some of my work like the site made people happy. I kinda wish I would get the will to continue contributing like I did before, as it was fun.

On a slightly better note in the past few months I had a slight regain in interest for making music.
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

Even if you aren't staying much longer, you've come a long way and controlled a site where people meet. People who can talk and be entertaining or people who can break the security of a 90MHz calculation powerhouse. I wasn't active for my first year (or however long I was dead), but I got to see some pretty interesting people and things. I hope the site won't collapse without you.

Yeah your songs are awesomeness.

The thing is, I don't particularly need you to code or to work on projects, I'd like you to, but I know you won't. This is because what you've done so far has made my life (believe me this is a community I'll never forget). I've always liked programming, but I never had projects. TI Calculators gave me dozens of projects and ideas to work on both for computers and calculators.

The experience I gained here at Omnimaga coding and socializing will forever help me in life (both social and coding, again).

Here's a graph about DJ_O's decreasing activity. You can see the beginning of the current version of Omnimaga (2008-2009), its growth (beginning of 2010), highs and lows, a peak in the end of 2010 (one heck of a posting spree in October 2010) and finally DJ's decrease in 2011.

The red dots is the daily total without the spam sections, the blue ones includes the spam sections, the pink line is a 7 days moving average and the black ones are a 30 day moving average (with and without spam).

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?
