    posted a message on Some discussion on files.wowace.com/latest-noext.xml
    I thought that SVN checkouts were very taxing for the server (cpu time, not bandwidth), and one of the driving reasons behind the creation of the files page in the first place.

    posted a message on Why don't more DEVs use Jira?
    I read Tekkub's post more as:
    "It's more important that the developer like the bug report system than the user."
    While you could make the case that if no users report bugs, it's worthless, a bug report system that the developer hates to use is equally worthless.

    And generally, users who care enough to make well-researched and helpful bug reports will jump through an extra hoop or so to do so.

    posted a message on LoadOnDemand issue
    You have addon 1 set up as "Load-on-demand." The game sees this, and doesn't load it. Then it gets to addon 2, and sees that addon 2 demands addon 1 in order to load. Therefore, the game loads addon 1, and then addon 2.

    posted a message on Combat log
    You can just do /combatlog, which will write the combat log to a file on logout. I'm not exactly sure the reason that you want to see the combat log in another way, so I'm not sure what would be helpful for you.

    posted a message on Is there an addon to do auto focusing?
    I believe that setting focus is a protected action, and therefore can't be done in combat without user input.

    posted a message on Gathering Notifaction
    I don't believe there is any easy way to tell. I know that, a long while ago, somebody was experimenting with periodically shrinking the minimap, turning it invisible, dropping it under the mouse cursor for a split second, and reading the tooltip. I have no idea how well it worked.

    posted a message on [Pitbull] Castbar
    Looking through the code, lines 224 through 228 set the display value:
    if type(castData[unit].target)=="string" and UnitName(unit) ~= castData[unit].target then
     frame.castBarText:SetText(displayName .. " (" .. castData[unit].target ..")" )
    else
     frame.castBarText:SetText(displayName)
    end


    Try removing lines 224,225,226, and 228, so that it simply reads:
    frame.castBarText:SetText(displayName)


    Note: This is 100% drycoded by me, I'm not in a position to test this.

    posted a message on Incoming Gold Amount - Tax tracker?
    Natan_j, I don't think it needs to be that complicated. Just take a snapshot of your current gold when you hit the reset button (or when you donate, if you want to be fancy), and just output a message to the chat frame when you visit the guild bank. (You have made X gold since your last donation, suggested donation is Y at Z%).

    posted a message on Utilizing the Tab key possible?
    I believe that the alt-ctrl-shift modifiers are hardcoded into the game somewhere deep.

    posted a message on Effective bossblock, Bigwigs/DBM/evt. Bigbrother
    I'd put it in send chat message, especially if that sendchatmessage is specific to raid warning. That way, if the message is sent somewhere else (like to your screen, or a whisper), you don't need the ***message*** format. It's also easier to maintain if/when new messages are added.

    Quote from Moon Witch »

    On that account... I've actually learned more about econ in WoW than I ever did in freaking class.

    For my economics class ("Honors," but we were disillusioned college students so it didn't mean much) we had to write one 5-7 page paper analyzing _something_ about an economy. Yes, it really was that vague.

    I wrote mine on the WoW economy and pulled an A. ^_^

    posted a message on WowMatrix - WoW Addon Updater for Mac and Windows - 100% Free
    This looks pretty cool. A few questions:
    How does it handle externals?
    How does it treat new library versions?
    You say it automatically updates, does this mean that you run scheduled updates or that it's a one-click affair?

    For my own curiosity: what did you write this tool in? =P

    Also, one suggestion: You might want to link to the addon page in the addon list (the wiki in the case of WowAce addons, and the addon page for addons from another site).

    posted a message on [Idea/Req] RaidID Sync
    Just an idea, but you could probably make do without everyone installing the mod if you keep a database of players and the raids they're saved to. E.g. when you kill a boss in an instance (or just see the 'saved to this instance' message), you mark down everyone in the raid and in the zone as having the same ID as you.

    posted a message on List of addons that now use Rock
    Mods that don't use the Ace framework are still allowed to exist on the Wowace SVN server. (Which, by the way, is very generous, especially since all the increased traffic with the updaters).

    posted a message on good LCD widescreen monitor?
    I've been using a 19inch widescreen from LG. I know that's not in the 20-22 inch range, but it's pretty close. It's got a 2ms response time, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and no dead pixels that I can see. I love it, but I was previously using a 17 inch CRT, so it's not like I'm a monitor expert.
