I would buy a T-shirt or an album.  If we sold Omni calculator cases, I would definitely buy one. :)

And I guess you huys can produce music till the end of yoir life. :P
Yes, this might work.(Although I must be honest and say that this isn't at all my kind of music)
Note that in the last year, some of my songs were totally different in style, though. An example is
. But if you don't like power metal or video game style music, then you might not like that stuff either. Also I wouldn't even have enough songs of that style to sell them in album format anyway.
Wow, I think we should do that.  Some interesting statistics xeda.  And then it's not like "oh, this is my 20th t-shirt, but I must support omnimaga!"
The latter is why I would like if I could offerent different t-shirt designs.


What I think is that we could have t-shirts, I could sell my music and we could have paypal donations. The latter might be for those who absolutely don't want to buy something, those who can't get something shipped from the Internet due to parents, but still want to help.
I would at least have to buy one song :P

I would help if I could but I don't have much money (well I'm 10 what do you expect I know that is kinda young to program and be interested with it but I am) and I would help If I had that much money

Well, the average starting age is usually 14-16, but we had a few 11-12 years old users for a while, although they did not code as much in overall. Personally if I got a calc when I was kid, I think I would have started trying to program it around 10-11, because I always wanted to make games since I was kid. I even drew SMB3 level tilemaps on paper when I was 8-9. Sadly I had no computer nor any game creation material back then.

UPDATE:

The hosting payments issue is being solved, same for contest prizes. We faced an extra problem, however, with OmnomIRC, because Netham45 might not be able to afford paying for his VPS for the next few months, meaning there will be extra contributions from other staff needed in short terms. Things should remain fine again afterward, though. (Although we're still thinking of a long-term solution to help a bit, for next years)

You could always try advertising on the site. Google adsense is relatively painless to set up.

Except that when ticalc.org added ads, they got like the equivalent of a couple of beers as revenues from ads in like 3 years. :P

This isn't to mention when Google Adsense is down, it kills the entire site.
