It was actually 10 years ago yesterday I posted the public announcement at...

(obsolete thread, please use guild, see base post) Math Trade Online Want List Generator (OLWLG) - Discussion, Problem Report, etc thread

Pieces of the OLWLG I started writing and using a little earlier than that but it was 10 years ago (yesterday, April 2nd 2007) that it was formally put together and announced.

I should at some point dig up some stats (probably need to write another script to do it) of the last 10 years.

I'm still surprised myself it's still kicking after 10 years... I had written the initial pieces just for myself since I didn't like creating a want list by the error prone by hand method. Also keep in mind the trade resolver at the time was TradeGenie which had a hard coded array/limit of 500 (or was it 600?) items. Hard to believe this tool has lived to support 6,400+ items and 600+ different users math trades.
