One million hits in one month and a Nspire NES emulator?
« on: September 25, 2010, 02:26:22 am »
For the first time in this forum history, Omnimaga received one million requests in a single month. Currently, we sit at 1032798 with still 6 days to go. This of course excludes the OmnomIRC refreshing script, otherwise the requests count would more than triple. In comparison, Ticalc.org currently has 7538234 for September 2010 (their busiest month ever was September 2004, with 20845547 requests, a few months after the TI-84 Plus, SE and TI-89 Titanium were released). With September 2010, we also got over 100000 visitors in a month 6 times in a row.

In the meantime, while we are judging the contest entries, several of our members are either finishing their respective game or starting new projects. In addition to that some of our staff projects are progressing, although some are busy with school, so don't forget to check the forums if you haven't done so in a while! With high daily posting averages and many active topics at once, it can be easy to miss stuff.



The above is an example of project on the forums: the proof-of-concept of a NES emulator for the TI-Nspire, by Goplat, in early stages, which is discussed at http://ourl.ca/7063/121018 .

As for the new download section, it has gone dormant for a while since I was overhelmed with my job, but hopefully work on it should resume after I am done with contest judging.

Indeed. I posted the million hits news then checked the forums again and saw the emulator: I couldn't resist adding a reference to it and the screenshot to front page (I did not post another news because it would have made 2 news within only a few minutes)
