I am glad the project is still safe, it sucks about all other projects, though. I hope you also find more time to work on your remaining projects soon.
What happened, hard drive failure?
The hard drive failed because laptops sucks at lasting long enough, which is why I always recommend that people get desktops unless they absolutely need something mobile that is still a full computer they can work on for school.

That said it sucks that this happened, though. This is why I prefer to keep backups at multiple places as much as possible (example: Omnimaga database is backed up on this computer, on the webspace and my old computer.), in case. But often when those hard drive failure happens this often happens at the worst moments :(

auch, that is hard to deal. At least the 84+ projects backup was relatively recent?

Flash drives can be easily lost... but for recent stuff is ok. So backup in various computers and external hard drives is the best. My desktop computer is possibly what has more risks in hard rive failures due to his historic. (weird 60GB occupied and freed by reformatting plus some filesystem recovered somehow by Linux OS but unreachable from Windows) I can't complaint about the laptop because I use mostly on hard and plain tables.
Hobbing in calculator projects.

Wow, i'm awed at project m and f-zero... let's hope calc84's motivation is kept strong, and that these projects don't get abandoned... :)

Ohai andrepd, nice to see you around :)

Do you do any calc programming by the way?

Also I agree, I really hope this stays alive. I have been wanting those games for 2 years now (or almost) ;D

Yeah, i know what you mean.  Fzero and some of Calc84's other projects were what brought me originally to Omnimaga.  To see something so awesome, and a site that was so game oriented was excellent :)

Project M is what I'm currently working on at the moment. :) One of the most important things I'm doing right now is going through old code and adding comments.

Yeah, I discovered the new Omnimaga back when it had around 0 posts on it, and then left. Then a while later I discovered F-Zero, and that was what brought me back here.
calc84 is awesome :D

Haha yeah I was trying to trick Netham45 earlier, who now hosts a replacement to SpyBot45, in thinking the ques glitch was still occuring. XD

@Bwang I guess you probably found a link to the site and it happened to be around August/Sept 2008, when we just re-opened. It was before F-Zero was announced too.

@Calc84 I'm happy to hear :)

Is that for your sake, or for everyone's?  I know that for S.A.D., I had to add lots of comments to old code for my sake

For my sake, hehe. It could be so easy to forget what I was doing with that code.

*bump*

I made a new screenshot! Just messing around with the current version. Notable additions are Fire Flower and Fire Mario. Also, Koopa shell physics have improved (not shown in this screenshot)
