    From a user standpoint, I can say that because having to navigate through a website to return to a previous location is slower than simply clicking the button assigned to my browser's "back" function. Regardless of what technological advances are made in the future, this will never change as long as dynamically scripted websites do not obey standard browser controls.
    Actually, there's libraries like jQuery that lets browser history function as intended, but they're sometimes cumbersome to implement.

    To be honest, browsers should adapt to AJAX rather than the other way around, IMO.

    "Shaving a few milliseconds off page load times" is hardly the only reason why AJAX is a good idea; users who have disabled browser cache drive bandwidth costs up by constantly re-requesting images, to mention one thing.

    I was the only one who got a decrease so I'm wondering if the points awarded would've been kept the same if I hadn't come first?

    I'm sure the dude simply hates you. :p

    I'm going to have to go for Holiday Fun, because Seerah offered me nude pics... eh I mean because it had the most options.
    Yes. Options.

    In seriousness; I liked the variety of options in Holiday Fun, and while it's not as flexible in the snowfall module as Let It Snow, the other options made up for it.

    Good luck to all contestants :D

    Huh. Could have sworn I saw somewhere it would work kind of like Diskeeper's features...

    Background. It's why people don't defrag in Win7 anymore.

    Though I do agree that there should be a vote once there is a wide selection of good themes to determine the default one.

    The problem with doing a vote is that the people with visual impairments will vote for the theme that suits them best, which is dandy in general except that visual impairments themes usually look like garbage to those without said impairments.

    I for one would hate having a theme with giant fonts as the default for any site, even though I run 1920x1200.

    My project will eventually be commercial, and as such I really can't also host it on GC as open-source :p

    Non-troll version of the above: http://opensvn.csie.org/

    I think it's hosted in some faraway land because it's quite slow to commit, however I consider it worth it since Assembla no longer allows free repositories to be protected, and OpenSVN offers both.

    I use it for the development of my vBulletin RPG script, and I've yet to run into any problems with it :)

    That is unless people are still programming add-ons with punch cards.
    I lol'd IRL.

    Maybe compiling it into a CHM file will reduce its size? I have no knowledge on how this is done or if its searchability is sufficient for your (and your potential "client" base's) needs, but if it is, it could be worth looking into to avoid having to use a full webserver.

    YOU FREAKS! :O
    :p I jest, I kid.

    My eyes are sort of fubar'd too, my left eye sees close stuff fine but blurs stuff further away than 30cm, and my right eye is the other way around.
    I don't know the fancy terms for those two things XD

    Quote from Xinhuan
    Disable "Superfetch" and "Windows Search" services (run "services.msc"). Run the Resource Monitor (run "perfmon.exe /res") and check for excessive disk/memory accesses.
    Neither of these services will have any noticeable impact on performance, since Superfetch is explicitly designed to relinquish resources whenever a running application asks for them and Windows Search not only doesn't continuously index (unless you were smart enough to index some temp folder or something :p) but it also doesn't index when you're running resource heavy applications.

    For what I just said to be correct, I'm assuming Vista (Superfetch) and/or Windows Search 4.0.

    I don't think they need to.

    And I don't know of anyone reasonable who thinks that's an argument Blizz would lose.
    That actually makes quite a bit of sense, but didn't I read somewhere in this thread that it's just guidelines and not an officially agreed upon ToS that you had to sign?
    Maybe they will introduce this in the next patch, who knows.

    Even so, would it still hold water in a court of law? I mean the ToS states you're not allowed to bot, but if you get caught you only get banned, not sued.

    My head hurts now :(

    I don't think most reputable addon hosting sites would have any problem removing addons that violate the new policy in obvious ways, such as code encryption.
    I meant addons hosted on separate sites, like Carb.
