10 Years!

I just realized a couple of days ago that in about 8 months’ time, I will have reached a milestone.  My earliest entry in my copy of otak is dated 22 Sept 2001, and if you were to have asked me if I would use a piece of software for 10 years, I would have laughed.

But here we are. otak is an essential piece of my life; it is still the first piece of software I install on any new machine, is the first directory I set my automated backup software to protect, is one of the first software I run every morning.

Believe it or not people are still sending me email on questions and feature requests.  I’m grateful to all my users, and am glad to hear all sorts of stories of how otak has helped in their daily lives.

I’ve just upgraded otakpim.com with a new look, after a move to a new webhost. I suppose it’s timely since we’re reaching a milestone, and I would want to commemorate this with something tangible.  Well, aside from a new release, that is. 🙂
