 10000!

10000Ten thousand programs on Plus/4 World! What a milestone!

The last time we had an announcement like this was back in 2004, reporting 5000. That was a little over 12 years and 4512 days ago, so on average, we've added about one program per day since. What is the 10000th program you may ask? Well, it's a GTW: Lemmings - that ID has been reserved for it a long time ago. To rain on our own parade a little: the way we count things is a bit strange: we have 6 different cracks of ACE 2 lumped together as one "program", but we list Kichy's conversion of Storm +4 which has 3 versions as 3 separate entities. Well, it is what it is, not perfect, but it's still nice to step back, look at this nice round number and feel a little proud of ourselves.

With that, I would like to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who worked on the site, sent in programs, cover scans, TAP files, information, or used our forum to keep the site alive!

Oh wow! Seen from here now, I realize we should be paid for this job, but dunno why I feel myself as I would have just been remunerated in terms of satisfaction and passion. The more stuff we add, the rarest become all the unseen programs from the past, the harder the challenge will be: we will perseverebecause we love to.
Oh well, there should be a way to celebrate all this...dunno, just in order to jabber on it: limiTED3?

Wow, what an achievement! If we had these 10 thousand programs back in the day... how many floppy disks would it have consumed (my estimate is: at least 800 )? It's really mostly the two of you guys whose continuous and relentless passion made this a reality over these years, so a big thumbs up from me and, well, keep the counter going!

Congratulation to the 10000. entry. +4 World is really, really the biggest webpage for Commodore 264 (16/116/+4) stuff!!! And, i'm proud to be a member.

I hope +4 world will existents min. the next 10 years and we 'll get more news, updates, new stuff like games and programms. U, the +4 world team, make a wonderfull work, respect!

WOW, a great number considering how low faith was in the 264 range even by Commodore management (I do not count Bil Herd and the development team).

Thank you for the hard work and the commitment/engagement you all showed in the last years CONTINUOUSLY!
I cannot express the importance of this site to keep C16/+4/C116 fans active.

OFF
I do not know, if there could be any way of motivation we may provide to TCFS to dust off the disks and finish the Lemmings? It could be a great hit with his qualities, certainly if the discs are lost, then now way.
It could be a BRILLIANT almost 10.000th release.
(BTW the pictures show, how much better TCFS version would be than the C64 version, the lemmings itself look 50% bigger and much closer to the originals (15 pixel height VS C64' 9 pixel height)), not to mention the animation phases, walking is 4-5 phases on C64, and seems 8 phases on +4)

Dear Admins!

Is there any way to create a Donate button to able to contribute to the cost of the server, or what? If you want.
(I know there was no cost involved last time we spoke about that, but it was 3 years ago...)
