Art and Music
On June 10th 2002, I started making electronic dance music. Eventually, I released various albums, two of which were in cassette format and many others in digital download format. However, over the last 15 years, many people from Omnimaga, Cemetech, CodeWalrus, other websites and social media have requested physical CD copies of my 32-bits eurodance, trance, happy hardcore, UK hardcore and power metal work.

Tonight, the wait is over:

Thanks to Kunaki's on-demand, direct-to-customer CD printing service, you can now purchase all the full-lenght albums that I have released from January 2007 to present, many of which includes songs from as early as 2002. Here are the ten albums that are now available in physical format:
Epic Journey through the Galaxy (2007) EDM
Journey through the Moon Dark Side (2007) EDM
Enter the Dream World (2007) EDM
Angel in the Stars (2007) EDM
It's the End of Time (2008) EDM
Destiny Knight (2009) EDM & VGM
Tales of the Knight of the Moon (2011) Power metal
Ancient Kingdom of Omnimaga Special Edition (2014) Power Metal
In UK Hardcore and Dance we Trust (2017) EDM
Illegal Music Chemistry (2017) Experimental & VGM

Of course, as always, my entire discography, including two compilations and one DJ mix, are available for purchase in digital format at http://djomnimaga.bandcamp.com for much cheaper, but for those who have been waiting for physical collectibles for so long, head to http://kunaki.com/mSales.asp?PublisherId=147037 to grab them. Note, however, that shipping might take up to 5 weeks in USA and 7 worldwide, and that Kunaki doesn't accept returns, due to being essentially an automated service.

Thanks to @Juju for recommending this CD fullfilment service to me and to @p2 for convincing me very hard to put my music on CD earlier this year. Also thanks to everyone that supported my music in the last 15 years.

I will be doing server updates tonight around 2:00AM GMT. Expect a few minutes of downtime as I reboot the server.

Hopefully nothing will break. ._.

Notable Game and Software Releases
OMG! Starcraft is now Free to play! The game came out in 1998 and used to be paid, but just like Starcraft II, they have now made it free (although unlike SCII where the Free version has limited features, this seems to be the full game). So in other words, if you liked SC go download the original game now and maybe we could play some games together at some point like back in the days

In addition to that, the patch (version 1.18) improves Windows 8.1 and 10 compatibility, although I dunno by how much. It also adds a windowed mode and improves various other things.

You need to use "Run as Administrator" to apply the patch.

A 4K remaster is supposed to come out later this year.

Calculators in General
In the near future, Casio will release the Casio fx-CG50, the fx-CG10/20 successor. In France, the calculator will be named the Graph 90+E.

To our surprise, those two new calculators still have backdoors that allow third-party ASM and C add-ins to run on the platform, a big contrast with the locked-down Casio ClassPad II (fx-CP400), soon to be replaced with the fx-CP500. However, just like with the differences between the Casio fx-9860g/II SH3 vs SH4, TI-83 vs TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus vs TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition vs TI-84 Plus CE, it appears that most PRIZM add-ins cannot run properly on the new model. Until now, only three of the original add-ins ran properly (see compatibility list), with the others being riddled with glitches or crashing outright. Parts of the problem is that there was no official SDK for the Casio PRIZM series, so the risk of add-ins using undocumented code or working directly with certain memory addresses was higher, and doing so resulted into said add-ins to be dependent on the hardware they were designed for, not for its successors.

However, thanks to Critor, two games that had smaller issues on the fx-CG50 have been ported and now work properly: Gravity Duck and Cubefield!

As you will notice, there's also a noticeable speed increase. Hopefully other add-ins still have their source code available and can be ported without too much hassle.
