From May 15-21st we celebrated and honored a TI Community Legend in old_cow_yellow!
The remembrances (like this project from Jan Cumps) poured in from Community Members around the world (see here) along with thanks during a special week where we celebrated and honored longtime TI Community Legend and Member... Old Cow Yellow (aka OCY). Even before there was an official MSP Low-Power Microcontroller Forum or E2E, Old Cow Yellow was active in online groups around TI MSP including a Yahoo! Group (as noted by Anders). It was great to pay tribute to OCY who has shared such a wealth of technical information and solutions to help others with TI MSP and microcontrollers over the years. Their knowledge sharing and collaboration with other TI Community Members has made them consistently stand out including their trademark with and humor. A friendly face and constant presence for so long we thank you OCY for participating and being a friend and valued member in the TI and MSP Community!

Old Cow Yellow remembrances

Glad to have such an experienced mind here on E2E - you're doing a great job!"

From Robert Chen (from this post):
"Thanks for all you do OCY. You are my idol."
From YiKai Chen (from this post):
"It's been my honor to meet you twice in Taipei. Since I start to active on E2E, you are already there to help people and keep moving until now. Thank you all for your contributions to E2E forum."
From Gautam Iyer (from this post):
"A True 'Legend'! OCY you've helped numerous members on the forum and are still continuing to do so.... this in itself is a Great motivation for all of us who try to help others. Thank you for being there and sharing parts of vast knowledge that you possess :)
Congrats! We all want you to keep continuing to do so for the decades to come."
From Markel Robregado (from this post):
"Thank you for all that you have done Old Cow Yellow ! ! ! "
From Anders Lindgren (from this post):
"I would like to join the chorus of people saying "thanks"!
I first came across OCY's insightful comments on the MSP430 mailing list hosted by Yahoo. Later, our paths crossed here at the E2E forum. Your level of knowledge is awesome, and it's clear that you are a person enjoying sharing it with others!
As a modern developer of programming languages, I'm amazed to see what people squeezed out of the 1970-era computer. Imagine running a full development environment, in addition to your application, on a machine hardly more powerful than a MSP430.
I tip my hat!"
From Tom Harper (from this post):
"Thanks OCY - when I am stuck I can count on you for a nudge!"
From Christopher Chung (from this post):
"A late entry as I only discovered this thread today.
I had a schematic error on my 1st MSP430 project (a LED clock), Mr. Wang had spent the time to study it and questioned the discrepancy which allowed me to correct it.
Many times I had questions and the answers are already there.
From Jens-Michael Gross (from this post):
"The celebration week is over, and I missed it (too busy to visit the forum at all).
However, kudos to you, old_cow_yellow, for what you have done during the last 7 years.
When I joined the forum, you have been one of the members I respected for their knowledge and the way they 'run the forum'. And even after I made myself a name here, I have always appreciated your comments and insights."
A final word and note of thanks directly from old_cow_yellow:
"Thank you everyone!I am honored and humbled by your kind words."-- Old Cow Yellow
