Alternate download locations for the WoW 1.11 patch

World of Warcraft patch 1.11 download link 1. World of Warcraft patch 1.11 download link 2. Unzip the files into the directory: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\wow-patch and run the game again. It should un-archive them and patch itself. (Note that this is the 150mb file which takes you from 1.10 to 1.11, not the other full 450mb beast which is floating around) Patch Notes here.Technorati tags: WoW, MMORPG

Some quick MMORPG related links

A few links, reposted from Heartless Gamer: Blizzard Possibly Patching 1.1 into WoW this week Joystiq.com celebrates SWG's 3 years of mediocrity, while some comment on the amount of lost potential in this game. Vanguard's June Newsletter, which describes a few upcoming features (and provides lots of info about how you can dob in people who breach the NDA!).

I've mentioned TiddlyWiki a few times before, but it looks like there have been quite a few updates since I last played with it. I just grabbed the latest updates and applied it to my todo TiddlyWiki which I haven't used since October last year. The upgrade worked without a hitch, and the layout is looking a lot slicker. There's also been a few more adaptions and modifications performed by other people, and most interestingly a few server side adaptions such as phpwiki and perlwiki. Is it time for a Domino and/or .NET implementation? Who can say. Tags: TiddlyWiki

Mentos + Diet Coke: An Illustrated Guide

Some people saw the Mentos and Diet Coke video and wondered how they did it. Here's an illustrated guide, presented in a Tabblo. Technorati tags: Amusing, Tabblo

In preparation for Summer

Pete H's home made air conditioner is perfect for those who don't want to spend a lot of money on a real A/C unit. I do however have problems getting that stupid episode of CSI out of my head, you know, the one where the dude gets an electric shock while using his white trash A/C. Maybe you've seen it, maybe not..

How to reduce base OSX install from 18gb to 10gb

How to reduce base OSX install from 18Gs to... excuse me, what? 18 gigs for the base install? Are you serious? Microsoft all is forgiven, I'll never throw another bloatware insult your way again for the rest of this month.

If you care what Smed has to say, then click here (it's pretty boring). If you don't want to read it then here's an ORLY owl to brighten your life.

Websites as graphs

Websites as Graphs pretty much does what it says. It creates a graphical representation of a website. This is Merauderweb: Somehow it looks more structured than I expected.

Mailing list ettiquete

If you're one of those people who sends out group communications often, please take note - it's good practise to send to one of your own addresses, and include the recipients in the bcc. It's just nice to not spread peoples addresses about. I'll excuse a lot of people from this, but when it's an IBM related communication containing a lot of useful names in a single list then I won't.

A good time to not be working with IBM products

This all sounds so dire, and all so believable at the same time. It's a good time to be retraining.

Surprised? No, neither am I. My reasons might be different to yours (getting in something of an altercation with a driver when he ran over someones foot, which ended up in him driving off at speed only to stop 50m down the road and get out of the taxi and 'talk tough' to me, while having one foot in the cab at all times ready to run off), but no doubt if you've spent any time in Auckland you've probably been ripped off by these guys at some point. So it's time to take a moment out and giggle at their...

Macbook Booboo

This reminds me of appliances which come with packaging which absolutely needs to be removed - normally these are heaters and microwave ovens and such like. Seems the Macbook pro is going to join that list of appliances with their latest slip up. Technorati tags: Apple, MacBook

Mt Ruapehu's interactive maps

Mt Ruapehu has been working hard on their website over the offseason, as well as working hard on their financing and future planning. Their new interactive maps are pretty cool, however they give you an insight into just how small the mountain skiable area of the mountain actually is. There you go Doug, I updated my wording just for you!

Pre-E3 MMO Roundup

E3 is long since over now, however the pre-E3 MMO roundup lists a lot of MMO games which are currently in development. Surely one of them will be worth playing?

How to Turn a CRT into a Trash Can

This post got so much outrage from people talking about how dangerous it was. I'd never really thought about it too much, and didn't realise that old CRT monitors can hold a charge for something insane like 50 years. Neato!

OpenLog for Notes/Domino

One of the recent editions of the Taking Notes podcast talks a lot about OpenLog which is written by Julian Robichaux. It sounds like a handy set of open libraries to help with code logging. One of the neat things he's done, is made the main call able to run without any paramaters. You can just call the single main function as part in your error handling block, and the error will be logged to a database, and all the relevant info will be extracted for you. There's code for both LotusScript and Java code in there. Check it out if...

Using a text file to manage your todo list

I do this. It works, and it works well. However, this is an example of taking it to the next level.
