    posted a message on MailTracker
    I've been working on a similar version of PickMail that collects mail simply and prints a message when colelcted. I know there is MailChecker or something out there already Ace'd, but I wanted something that:

    1) when the shift key was pressed it would loot anything inside,
    2) when the control key was pressed: it would return the item inside,
    3) when the alt key was pressed and you click on an item, it would get auto-added to the send mail area. (This is part of a function with CT_MailMod, but I want to Ace CT_MailMod or something similar for multi-sends)

    I have suceeded in the first two. But the chat message is spammed 3-8 times per item. I will take what you all have here and see if I can't get a solidified version up soon.

    posted a message on Ace'ing an assisting addon!
    I use Sistor. I have found that it is the most user-friendly version around, and very simply written.
    As much as I hate to link to Curse, it's been abandoned a long time ago, but remains there in perfect health. It has worked flawlessly ever since it was written.

    @Industrial & Orione:
    Keep in mind that many people will not be skilled enough to make such a macro. Is there something that you can suggest (like what the macro might look like) to assist them with this?

    posted a message on Ace PvP timer?
    Thisis on my list to Ace. I will tie it into Timex for sure though, as the timer itself fails to reset properly upon such actions as new combat and logging out and back in (reloadUI). To fix this, I will need the help of Timex.

    My only hang-up for finishing this is that I don't want to work on more than 3 projects at once, and I have to familiarize myself with Timex more.

    Look for this to be done by me sometime in January of 2006. The other ones should be a state of BETA by then and I can begin on a new project at that time. :)

    Umm... WOW... you need to check this bar out... VERY VERY nice layout and good looking too...

    I was flat-out amazed at the smooth look, feel, and function.

    Perhaps some ideas and concepts can be utilized from this for our version?

    It's called..... BhaldieInfoBar over at WOWI...

    Bah! Rowne beats me fair and square to another addon. I was also going to Ace Aspected (i'm assuming that's what he did as well), and call it... ready? AspectUs (like Asbestos?).

    OMFGROFLMAOGeez! I kill me!

    Alright, so I suck. But it was a dream I had...

    Back to topic! Great work Devla! I find myself saying, "HOLY CRAPOLA-AUNT-JAMYMA THATS A LOT OF STUFF GOING ON THERE!!!11!1!", but I generally like the use of such a HUGE list of addons in such an organized way. Props!

    Aye, tekkub is correct. The feature turns the view off for everyone.

    However, due to server lag, distance from the person that is changing that option, party member updates, or just a damn slow computer - the effect of NOT showing the helmet or cloak can be delayed upwards towards 3 minutes (far beyond your desired purpose). I'm not saying that this is always the case, but I've actually indirectly tested this by sitting in the same room as my fiance' and clicking the feature on and off while staring at HER screen. Sometimes is was immediate, but other times it took a long time to register to her computer.

    Will something like this be rendered nil due to this? Nay. But I thought I'd offer some additional insight.

    My suggestion? If you are a user of such items on a common basis, then leave your helmet features turned off all the time. This will ensure that this situation of "pre-warning" never exists in the first place. :D

    I would LOVE to see something like that ATC!!

    So many times, I'm trying to figure out how to do something, so I will look at someone elses code to see how they did it. Many times this only raises more questions, compounding the issue into a brain meltdown. If there were commented peieces to reference, this would aide many of us in the writing process I feel.

    I am also in agreement that AceBar should be nothing more than the handler of all plug-ins. Leave it up to the coding community to create the plug-ins. /nod

    Thinking back, this is why I stopped using Titan. All the included stuff that I simply didn't use. The bloat. I hadn't really attributed the cause to that until Tekkub mentioned it.

    posted a message on Programming primer.
    To further agree with what everyone has said already - staring at code is my learning process. I do not have any books to recommend at this time.

    I would, however, suggest reading The Ongoing Classes and glance through topics discussed under Developer's Corner. Both of those have helped a lot of people get started with some understandings.

    Beyond that, DL the Development tools and example addon located on Ace's download page.

    There is also great sources for key LUA documentation located at LUA.ORG and WoW Wiki.

    A pound is 16oz... but a "#" is half of two pounds.

    But on the other hand.... she wore a glove.

    And if i have 6 of one and a half dozen of another, how many do i have?

    12 right?

    But you'll admit that in most cases it's 24....

    A case of beer for example. Which would be the case in point, right?

    But there is no point, the world is round...

    And if I take the world's largest AirForce Carrier and stand it upright next to the Empire State Building, what would happen?

    The planes would fall off...







    .. nuff said.



    WE ARE NOT *twitch* CRAZY!!!

    posted a message on randomly sort a list
    Just the fact that someone has 6 mounts to call upon disgusts me. Actually, I'm jealous as hell that someone could afford such a feat, so I lash out with anger instead of admitting my own suck-ness as a gold farmer. LOL :lol:

    That is amazing! And the fact that an addon has been written for this situation is equally amazing! Great job! :lol:
