Raid Rx: An unofficial look at patch 4.1 healing changes and trinkets {WoW}

Feb 25th 2011 3:51PM What Tom said is roughly correct. It doesn't matter what order you go in, you're going to get a fixed amount saved given X number of spells cast.

However, it's not a completely fixed amount of mana because the more spells you cast, the more mana you can save. So to truly optimize the mana savings from the trinket, you would want some known amount of haste to be able to pop off a continuous string of short casts, IE a priest going flash heal bananas for 20 seconds.

How to share files using a homegroup on Windows 7 {Download Squad}

Jan 19th 2011 8:04PM The last time I looked into HomeGroup, the major issue was that it couldn't work with computers on a workgroup (XP/Vista computers). You picked one or the other and there was no patch available to push HomeGroup access to older machines. Has anyone seen a workaround for this yet, as this is what I see is the main obstacle for wider adoption.

Balance is a challenging physics Time Waster {Download Squad}

Jan 5th 2011 5:09PM Seems to me that the physics of it are backwards. Surely it should start out near the hand and get longer as the game goes on?

Have we hit 'Peak Travel'? A new study seems to think so... {Autoblog Archive}

Jan 5th 2011 4:27PM The main impact of these statistics seems to be for oil demand/price prediction. That's going to be *heavily* influenced by the rest of the world, so it's crucial to get an accurate analysis of world traffic. While it's important not to oversample India & China, which would throw the estimate too high, leaving them out seems completely bizarre and must surely underestimate the value worldwide considerably..

That's a "send to other monitor" button from a utility like UltraMon.

Four places to find great online deals for computer e-books {Download Squad}

Nov 4th 2010 5:23PM If you live in a college town, checking unofficial bookstores can prove fruitful. The BookHolders store in Blacksburg, for example, sells a wide array of books for $1, some of which are computing manuals. Often these books aren't the most up to date, but if you're looking for a guide to get started in a new language for example, most of the content is still very relevant.

Aerofoil extends your Windows laptop battery life by automatically switching power profiles {Download Squad}

Oct 21st 2010 12:04PM Just thought I'd note: I'm pretty sure the default behavior of power saver is to have Aero Glass off.

Sep 24th 2010 1:07PM Also the accents, big giant map, currency, place names, overall vernacular, phone number, and website might be an indicator. Also where he talks about "drivers in the UK"

Gotta pick up on those subtleties.

Firefox finally gets "paste and go" in FF4 nightly {Download Squad}

Sep 23rd 2010 9:32AM As it stands right now, if you highlight the link, then right click on it, the context menu now treats it like a regular link: Offering open, open in new tab, and open in new window. Not quite as troublefree as the good ol' Linkification add-on, but an improvement nonetheless.
