Hi,

Over 7 years ago I joined this forum as a teen looking to learn how to program for my TI-83 Plus. Thanks to the help people gave to me on these forums I did just that. I want to say thank you to everyone who taught me! It helped me form a career path, and I am now a successful software engineer. If I hadn't of been so inspired to create games on the TI-83 Plus I doubt I would be in the position I am today. Some of you might remember me, I remember when desolate first came out, and how awesome it was. I remember when my close friend Calvin released his first game: "PaRappa The Rapper"

I remember most of the projects I worked on, and I remember not finishing even one of them. I had a short attention span. lol

Thanks for the good times, and for the great learning experience!

-Toaster

Hey Toaster! Very glad to hear from you and even more glad to hear of your success outside of the calculator world :).

Thanks for popping in to say hello, sadly this place is pretty quiet these days.

Good to hear from you Toaster, and glad to hear you've turned a hobby and interest into a successful career. What sort of development work are you doing? Are you still in contact with Calvin?

Sorry I never replied until now. Calvin just recently got married, and bought a house! He had a pretty nice wedding. He is also working as a software engineer. At the time of the original post I was doing some freelance web programming. Now I work for a small but really awesome company mainly do a lot of front end development. Very recently they have started to get into game development which is pretty nice. I've also been working on the side with a team called unearthly entertainment. They are making a voxel minecraft clone, but with spherical planets, which I've been programming from the ground up. I think they plan on releasing a video soon...

Hey TOaster, long time no see (I wonder if you remember me, since I changed nicknames often after you left, but I made The Reign of Legends 3 and Reuben Quest) :)

I am curious about the Minecraft voxel clone. You should post a video in the projects section when ready :) Tr1p1ea is also working on his own Minecraft clone, for Android.

I have only released one calculator game recently (I remember when I pumped them out every few week back then)
