What???????????????

Omega ( ) (literally, big O) is the 24th and last letter of the Greek alphabet. In the Greek numeric system it had a value of 800.

Omega is used to denote an end to something, the opposite being Alpha, beginning. For example, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." (Revelation 22:13, KJV)

Omega has been used as the name for a wide variety of other things, for example:

Omega is a Swiss watch company.
Omega is the name of the free 16-Bit (Unicode) version of the typesetting system TeX ([1] (http://omega.enstb.org/))
Omega is a fictional character from the television program Doctor Who.
a Roguelike game ([2] (http://www.win.tue.nl/~kroisos/omega/))
a fatty acid: Omega-3 fatty acid
the lowest ranking position in a group of animals (the omega (wolf) in a pack)
a line of Omega and Omegaflex roll film cameras
Omega was the first worldwide radio navigation system
The upper-case letter is used as a symbol for:

the best person in a group of people. The Omega person, the leader the most valued and accepted member.
Ohm - SI unit of electrical resistance.
In computer science, in notation related to Big O notation, also Chaitin's constant.
Codex Athous Dionysii, an 8th/9th century uncial Greek manuscript of the Gospels on Mount Athos.
Omega Point, a theory about computing at the end of the universe.
In mathematics, the first uncountable ordinal number.
Naoki Maeda's pseudonym for the Dance Dance Revolution song Max 300.
The lower-case letter is used as a symbol for:

In textual criticism, the archetype of a manuscript tradition.
In physics, angular velocity.
In mathematics, the first transfinite ordinal number

Thanks James but as you see, the part I quoted from your post is not to be seen in my quote! Weird!

the way wikipedia works is that its community driven, anyone can add something if they want, but it can be removed at the discretion of others. So what probably happened is someone added that, then a bunch of people said thats stupid, remove it, and so its gone. the reason it appeared for some people and not others is that the people that could still see it had already seen the site were drawing the page from the cache, im guessing.
