1M Downloads and Github

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 29, 2012, 5:03 AM

This day marks a special milestone of achievement for the developers of Omnimo. A humble project that started almost two years ago reached one million downloads today. Most of you probably don't know that this project was supposed to be much smaller. When I came up with the early concept in the middle of March, I intended it to have approximately 12 panels and several text items.

Omnimo: The Beginning

Nothing more. However, shortly after the concept, Xyrfo joined the project. And with our combined passion and ambition, as well as with some help from others, we managed to create the biggest Rainmeter suite ever. Xyrfo did some amazing stuff for the project. Things without which it would just remain but a dream of a madman. But he did it! For that, he deserves no less recognition than I do.

And of course, we would like to thank the community for all the support! You guys are awesome! Nothing motivates doing a project better than to see people use and enjoy the product. We're glad that we had the possibility to work without constraints. Something that could be taken away from us in the future (ACTA/SOPA etc ).

I asked Xyrfo to give a statement for this grand milestone, and here it is:

"...Why did I get dragged into this?..."

Github Announcement
To mark this special event, we created a github repository for Omnimo. This will make it easier for us to track issues, keep our development in sync, as well as open up the possibility for others to join the project. Currently we uploaded the existing version of Omnimo. I'm already starting to list recent bugs to fix for the next version. If you are on github and interested in taking part in this project, feel free to submit a pull request and do your modifications.

Took a look at the GitHub, you did some stuff in AutoIt3 I see. I'm actually learning the language. Simple stuff compared to C++. :P
