For those who are unaware, RockComm, a library within the core Rock framework, has functionality enabled by default to send your talent data to other players. The functionality can be disabled via the framework's in game configuration menu.
Why is this functionality included in RockComm?
The basis of this decision involves the network effect: The more users sending out their talent information, the more useful the functionality is. RockComm is already embedded in a few popular addons (PitBull, Cartographer), so the decision was made to stick the talent sending functionality into RockComm to take advantage of that large user base. The end result is more people sending out their talent information.
Why is it enabled by default?
Simply put, to rely on user ignorance. Most users do not typically heavily modify their default settings. So they're less likely to discover that the talent sending functionality exists, and more importantly, turn it off. The end result is again, more people sending out their information.

Oct 3, 2007Part of a framework utopia is not caring what frameworks people use for forks of your own stuff :PPosted in: FuBar AddOns
So, how about FuBar-2.1 and FuBar-3.0? The only other logical thing I can think of is FuBar-2.0-Mikma or something like that.

[me=Tuller]wonders if that result is simply from a developer listing an optional dependency that's not used in the addon[/me]Quote from Speeddymon »
LoD doesn't work properly.. I can disable all libs, and then let ace load the ones that are needed, and they use way less memory than if I keep them all enabled and let LoD do it's thing (about 1mb worth, just so you know)..
Sep 30, 2007The change to a less ugly default window was a good idea. A minor, but effective tweak would be to increase the spacing between widgets. Right now, the main window feels quite a bit cluttered due to how close things are.Posted in: Rock
The color picker sliders...I just like the blizzard dialog for them much more than the ones implemented in RockConfig. The current version in rock just feels like there's too much going on.

Try to find an Ace2-based replacement for Cartographer and FuBar (except the pre-Rock old versions)... Happy hunting.
Sticking to the Ace2 versions until the Rock versions become stable is a valid solution. Not every one need to be an alpha tester :P

Sep 24, 2007tullamods posted a message on Need an opinion on which mod people prefer Mendeleev,KC Items or SellFish?I tell people to use ItemPriceTooltip because its updated faster than SellFish is. Its one of those times that the Ace SVN is a good idea :) Someone should totally LibStub ItemPrice, btw.Posted in: General AddOns
Valuation is also a valid option if you prefer the Blizzard style of money display. It uses significantly less memory than SellFish & even a little bit less CPU time.
iirc ItemPriceTooltip's data was mined from the armory so it should be(almost) complete and correct. And I remember sth like Farook said, too. I think Tuller even helped on ItemPriceTooltip's compress algorithm.
I don't recall helping on the algorithm.
SellFish will continue to be around, though. I plan on doing more regular updates after 2.2 is out.
Sep 21, 2007tullamods posted a message on Having several frameworks running at the same timeRunning multiple frameworks isn't a significant issue, except in the case of running multiple copies of heavy libraries because of it. That'll hopefully be resolved with the LibStub move.Posted in: Frameworks
