    You can try msysgit instead for windows.


    that's what I used... and it works fine on one box.. but on my other computer it often segfaults and I don't have a clue why ;)

    It's not possible to have a wrong account registered for instant payment, if you want to verify your bank account PP sends you a few cents and the subject of that payment contains a code to verify it's the right (and your) bank account.

    The fees for failed attempts because of bad balance could be a problem, though ;D Although I guess PP would not allow any more payments from that account until they get their money...


    well... I was an account manager for an mmorpg and have experience with bank transfer payments. You won't believe how many people change their bank accounts ... because they move to an other bank or to another city or whatever ... that's not a problem with one time payments but with subscription it probably is .)

    Same goes for payments made with credit card, depending on what your contract states, chargebacks are possible within up to 6 month.


    No.. with credit card payments you can dispute a payment.. but before the money is returned the cc company will contact the merchant and ask for additional information. If the merchant can proove deliverance or something like that the chargeback won't happen.

    As there are prepaid CCs, the whole thing is pretty stupid imho, as it doesn't really matter whether PP get's a "No money available" message from a CC company or my bank :P

    And I dunno about government run debit cards... but here in Germany you can pay nearly everything using your normal bank card (though it's an agreement between economy and banks rather than any form of law).


    Well.. it does matter. For creditcards the "clearing" of the transfer will be instant and free. For german bank transfer it will take time and if something is wrong with the bank account (wrong number or bad balance) the bank will even charge paypal some euros for the negative attempt.

    Another reason is that you can chargeback any merchant side initiated german bank transfer for six weeks without the need to provide a reason for that. Again the merchant has to pay some euros for that chargeback. If you can provide a reason there is no deadline for such a chargeback.

    The problem might be that you can't use all paypal payment methods for subscription based payments. Some are only useable for one time payments.

    WoW is a very CPU limited game which isn't surprising considering when it came out, GPU's weren't that powerful back then. WoW doesn't scale all that well with newer hardware at all, upgrading video card past the mid range ones tends to gain you almost nothing, upgrading from a dual to a quad core also gains you almost nothing, WoW depends almost entirely on raw CPU and memory bus speed.


    upgrading from dual to quad may even lower your performance because the cores on most duals run on a higher speed then in quad processor...
    (like switching from a 3ghz dual to a 2.64ghz quad)

    I think I7 processors automaticly overclock 2 cores if only 2 of the 4 cores are in use.

    And certainly I don't have an explanation for freezes when folks die, because that doesn't create particularly heavy CL traffic.

    When someone dies there is a message for every aura/buff he had .. and e.g. if it's a dranae/tree/moonkin everybody also looses an aura .)

    I think combat log parsing addons can be a culprit.. I was trying skada last sartharion raid and had some 5+ second freezes with it when I got attacked by little adds... never had any problems with recount.

    I don't think that you have much more animations in 25 man raids then in 10 man raids .)

    posted a message on Globals vs Locals newbie question
    does making functions local has no overhead at all ?

    I found something like that in an addon:
    local IsVisible, ClearAllPoints = _G.IsVisible, _G.ClearAllPoints
    local GetFramerate, GetNetStats = _G.GetFramerate, _G.GetNetStats
    local GetPoint, SetPoint, SetNormalTexture = _G.GetPoint, _G.SetPoint, _G.SetNormalTexture
    local SetWidth, GetWidth, SetHeight, GetHeight = _G.SetWidth, _G.GetWidth, _G.SetHeight, _G.GetHeight
    local GetText, AddLine, AddDoubleLine, ClearLines = _G.GetText, _G.AddLine, _G.AddDoubleLine, _G.ClearLines
    local EnableMouse, SetResizable, SetFrameLevel, SetMovable = _G.EnableMouse, _G.SetResizable, _G.SetFrameLevel, _G.SetMovable
    local StartMoving, StopMovingOrSizing, SetClampedToScreen = _G.StartMoving, _G.StopMovingOrSizing, _G.SetClampedToScreen
    local SetFrameStrata, GetScript, collectgarbage, SetBackdrop, wipe = _G.SetFrameStrata, _G.GetScript, _G.collectgarbage, _G.SetBackdrop, _G.wipe
    
    local string_format = _G.string.format
    local string_find = _G.string.find
    local string_len = _G.string.len
    local string_sub = _G.string.sub
    local string_gsub = _G.string.gsub
    local string_lower = _G.string.lower
    local table_sort = _G.table.sort
    local table_concat = _G.table.concat
    local tonumber = _G.tonumber
    local print = _G.print
    local type = _G.type
    local pairs = _G.pairs
    local math_modf = _G.math.modf


    I wonder if this really make sense for functions that are not called often :9

    hmm... I enabled cpu profiling in the menu (and get a warning about cpu profiling active on every reloadui) but the tooltip still only shows the memory column :( ( It only shows the Memory-Total Column )
