    Wow...learn something new every day...

    Can the chat/console calculations also be used to store variable values? I rarely use this function in the calculator function I have, but it is sometimes useful.

    Does anyone have an answer to the second and third parts of my question? (The part about Fubar for Stalker and about writing your own Fubar addons.)

    posted a message on Looking For Fubar Addon
    I was wondering if there is a calculator addon out there for Fubar? I am currently using GnomeCruncher. I love it, but it kind of just floats out there in my screen without a home. It'd be great to hide its frame until a click of a button in Fubar unhides it.

    If an calculator addon for Fubar doesn't already exist, is there a way to do the above? That is, hook GnomeCruncher into Fubar like BartenderFu does for Bartender?

    Same question for Stalker--can it be hooked into Fubar?


    Finally, I know I've seen it somewhere, but I just can't find it again: Where would I go to find information on writing your own Fubar addon?

    posted a message on What do you do on Tuesdays?
    It's always bugged me that Blizz does their stuff on Tuesdays, in the middle of the day. Why then? Is that truly the optimal time to do maintenance? It seems to me like it would be better to do it on a Tuesday in the early A.M., like 1 AM. This is from a customer point of view, and albeit, just one customer. I'm sure others out there would disagree with me, and some would agree.

    From a business standpoint, I'm sure there are reasons. Server loads have probably shown to be lower on average at their chosen time. Development flow is probably based on this Tuesday cycle: Wednesday through Friday/Saturday, work on projects assigned from last week; off for the weekend; Monday morning, come back and have meetings to discuss and finalize projects from the week previously; and spend Tuesday releasing and emergency debugging before opening the servers back up and starting the whole process over again. I'm sure it's cheaper for Blizz and nicer on Blizz employees to work during the day versus at night, so that might be a reason, too.

    I made all of that up, but it sounds feasible. Point being: I'm understanding that there are reasons (and very credible and important ones) for doing it the way they do. I'm not throwing myself on the ground like a two-year-old in a screaming tantrum. However, if Blizz was listening: Why exactly Tuesday, day time (US)? If it could be moved, would they consider it?

    World of Warcraft is not my life, but it is one of my main hobbies. I also build/launch model rockets, and fly small aircraft recreationally. (Thus the reason for my username.) But when money is tight and/or the weather isn't cooperating, I revert to Warcraft.
    So, when Tuesday rolls around and I don't have to work that day, weather is bad and there's nothing needing done around the house, I get creative. Until about 3PM Eastern...

    That's what I do on Tuesdays...
    What do you find yourself doing on Tuesdays?

    Not sure what your asking, but Pitbull and X-Perl show 3D portraits...is that what you're asking? Personally, I find PitBull 4 the easiest to setup...

    Thanks for the info!

    I currently don't need to reuse the name; I decided to change the direction of the project entirely, including its name.

    Good to know though that I could use it again later. Thanks.

    posted a message on WowAddon Studio: Abandoned?
    Has anyone tried this one?:

    http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info4222-WoWUIDesigner.html

    It, too, appears abandoned, but it's more specific to frame design than an entire IDE. It also uses XML. Is the general consensus that using XML is bad or something?

    That's a shame, because I liked the ability to graphically draw my frames...

    Is there any other application out there that is being kept up to date that can do the above? Would you recommend it and does it mesh well with Ace3?

    No, it's more to it than that. Is there a way to delete projects you've created?

    posted a message on WowAddon Studio: Abandoned?
    The last release of WowAddon Studio was back in February. Anyone know if this is still being developed further?

    As a side note, anyone know how to implement Ace3 into an addon being developed in WowAddon Studio? Used to be a "Create a new Ace2 project" option in it, but it's not there anymore and Ace3 never has been.

    posted a message on Ace3 and Defaults
    Nev:

    Got it - keep it separate from the defaults table. In this case, I must handle the adding to (if item exists in table already, set key-value pair to true, else tinsert)/removing (not truly deleting, but setting the key value pair to "false") items from the list. I'll also have to handle resetting the list on profile changes.

    Supporting profiles is where I get confused...some questions in no particular order to try and help clear it up for me:

    1. If defaults is meant to be to set default settings, and the default settings are applied in the mix-in statement, how does AceDB know whether or not to rewrite the defaults to the saved variables? Or does it?
    2. If it doesn't, then how does it know when not to apply the default settings on load and instead, pull the last active character/profile settings?

    I better stop there; little bits at a time...

    posted a message on Ace3 and Defaults
    Okay, this should be a quick and simple question:

    I'm planning an addon where the user can add/remove items from a list of items (a table)--sort of like the Snatch utility for Auctioneer Advanced. The addon will come with a pre-defined list of items already included that the user can remove and/or add to.

    Would including this list in my char/profile/global defaults table be a good place to have this list? Would changes the user makes get overwritten and returned back to the defaults if I did it this way? Or should I include this list separate from the defaults table and put it in its own table? I ask because it seems like the defaults table would be a convienent place since I can have Ace semi-automate the above-mentioned adding/removing. I'm just concerned those changes would get overwritten the next time the addon is loaded?

    Forgive me...my head is feeling really cloudy right now and I'm probably not thinking straight...

    posted a message on Private Pastes
    Well, crap. I would have thought they would be accessible in the profile page when I log in or something like that.

    Allow me a feature request for this web site then: Is there any way to associate private pastes with user accounts on this web site, and thus making them accessible?

    Having to remember the URLs for pastes is about equivalent to just remembering the code I pasted in the first place...lol.
