    posted a message on Windows 7
    Quote from Buio
    I thought that was about what I wrote, but yeah.

    And as for flashing forward 1 year, wouldn't Windows 7 be Microsoft's current OS? Which means it would be appropriate for them to start pushing for the x64 version more?

    Anyway I don't really have any big benefits from using x64 version, but it is somewhat more secure and there are no big problems from using it (except from Creative and X-Fi drivers not being very good).

    Here is a small test on 7-zip x86 vs x64:
    http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmy.opera.com%2Fdj.kure%2Fblog%2F7zip-test-32bit-vs-64bit&sl=cs&tl=en&hl=en&ie=UTF-8


    Ive read about some MS engineer guy saying they already wanted Vista as 64bit only, but they had to trash that quite early because the PC manufacturers and bigger companies complained alot.

    The point with 64bit is that its inevitable to use it at some point, the sooner you move on the better.
    Seeing PCs sold with 8GB ram and Vista Home Premium 32bit Version makes me cry :P

    The DRM crap is something MS mostly had to implement. Its as simple as that, not being able to playback HDDVD/BD while the fancy Apple System does it (with the same DRM crap) is just not an option.
    Ive used Vista now for quite some time and never ran into any DRM problems(well not using DRM protected content makes that easy I guess).
    The "increased" Hardware costs are not noticeable for the customers, every part got cheaper anyway and its not like if you run Linux/BSD/whatever your Hardware misses the parts needed to support the DRM stuff :D

    posted a message on UI art rework - Let me know what you think
    Camma I didnt mean that, sorry if you misunderstood, your Art is looking nice, but Skinner is on of the biggest junk collections on WoWAce as it includes 1 or more files for almost every AddOn even if you dont use 200 of them.
    If you plan to do it by replacing the Art in the AddOn Folder itself it certainly is better :)

    Ah well I got 2.0.1.0 but never saw the disclaimer because I already had it on alpha before I guess :D

    Why make it harder for people that specifically choose to get Alphas instead of Release Versions, which is the default option.

    Just because "these testers" can do it the more complicated way, there is no reason to not make it easier for them if it doesnt require alot of work :P

    But I agree that there should be something like a Warning if you alter the Global Release Preference to anything but Release which makes it clear that nobody will care if anything breaks because he updated wrong.
    (which is only partially true of course but I think you get what I mean :P )

    Maexxna works, Faerlina works, Anubrekhan works in 10man atleast so it should work in 25man aswell.

    posted a message on Gold in Excel
    Iam sure there is some overcomplicated way but just use copper only for internal calculations and in the end use 3 fields to display it like WoW which is pretty easy to do with Excel.

    =ABRUNDEN(A1/10000;0) =ABRUNDEN(A1/100-A16*100;0) =A1-(A16*10000+B16*100)

    This is converting a copper number from A1 into Gold(Field A16) Silver(B16) Copper(C16)

    As Iam using a german Excel and Iam unaware of the correct function names you will need to find them :P
    ABRUNDEN means always round down e.G:
    1,3333 = 1
    1,9999 = 1

    Wonder how long he needs to figure out that he needs to use his Curse Account(resetting PW helps alot)here if he had one before the WoWAce-Curse move instead of his WoWAce Account.

    posted a message on Sockets?
    You can however get the changed content of a file present in the AddOns TOC before you started WoW if you reload your UI(The file has to exist physically already before)
    That might be enough for your specific AddOn or not :P

    posted a message on Compression algorithms
    Stupid question, is it worth compressing at all?

    I mean sure it saves Memory but in the end I do you really care about memory?
    I care more about CPU usage tbh, and everyone that would care about memory should care even more about CPU usage I think :P

    And to answer your question yes there are some AddOns using compression the most often used is PeriodicTable but its only partly compressed I think.
