REPORT: Holden to lose $1 billion annually if GM shutters Pontiac {Autoblog Archive}

Apr 27th 2009 11:46AM Here's the Commodore in Aus highway patrol car livery:

The design of the g8's nose had been such an afterthought and never suited the rest of the cars design.

Breakfast Topic: Playing at work {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 8:35AM I dual box quite covertly and successfully at work (when i'm not overly busy with anything of course)

Thing I found that makes it easy is a mod called bosskey, works a lot faster/more reliably than alt tabbing, and covers WoW with a terminal type screen when you press the tilde key.

If you have your windows taskbar hidden + use windowed mode and drag the top of the title bar off screen it's quite inconspicuous.

only recommended this if you don't work around a bunch of tech heads though.. fortunately at my work I am the IT department.

Preparing for Wrath Day 4: Addons for leveling {WoW}

Nov 10th 2008 12:15AM carbonite paid + lightheaded is possibly the best combo

lightheaded is still very useful for the few quests that carbonite misses (lightheaded coordinates are obviously useable as waypoints in carbonite).. it's also pretty handy for item use quests that aren't explained well by the blizzard quest log (ie. tldr)

the punks feature in carbonite is awesome for avoiding mid mob gankings whilst leveling and can often give you a chance to get out of combat/bandage/stealth etc. before engaging in world pvp

How to set up and use the Belkin Nostromo N52 {WoW}

Nov 6th 2008 9:48PM i've been using my n52 (non te) fine on my vista 32 laptop, perhaps this is just a vista 64 problem or they've updated the drivers since you tried?

Got to say I find the n52 indispensible for my desktop dual box setup, I have an n52te hooked up to my second PC which controls my healbot paladin on follow, then my razer tarantula controlling the first PC (have the n52 sitting just in reach to the left of my tarantula)

For dual boxing on my laptop I use my old model n52, but paired with keyclone which makes life a ton easier with the limited amount of free keys available on a laptop.

Addon Spotlight: New, old, and outdated! {WoW}

Nov 5th 2008 10:34PM pretty sure dominos can be configured to use the one bag button still, can't remember off the top of my head how I did it though.

I definitely miss the simple press alt + click then drag your mouse to create bars configuration of bongos though, the new system just seems very clunky, especially when you have to configure it for several machines and different characters (for which you might not use the same bar setup).

Despite all that, it's still to me better than the main alternative, bartender4. Yet to try macaroon, but being on the race to 70 with my two characters before WotLK I really can't waste any more time relearning bar mods =/

Addon Spotlight: TwoBox Toolkit {WoW}

Sep 7th 2008 11:46PM so anyone know whether this addon is 100% legal or not?

I thought having something so overly automated like this auto follow system would be against the TOS?

The roads of Azeroth: Now with biker gangs {WoW}

Jul 20th 2008 7:44PM You should jump off the pier of Theramore where there's sharks.. the irony would be fantastic.

Jokes aside, I think the introduction of bikes will pave the way for some srs RP biker gang guilds.

Wrath will have mounts with passengers {WoW}

May 13th 2008 12:22AM The passenger mounts are going to be quite good for us dual boxers. Will only need to pay for one epic mount and be able to avoid all the "stop following" problems you get sometimes due to lag/terrain.

If you plan of rolling a BK and dual boxing it to 80 (as I eventually plan to do paired with my shaman) it will be almost game breaking as you'll be able to chauffeur your BK around in outlands on an epic passenger flyer.

Wonder how they'd handle aggro range and forced dismount chance when pairing with characters of lower level though? Would suck chauffeuring a level 10 around only to both be knocked off by a level 8 spider.

Can WoW be beaten? {WoW}

May 2nd 2008 12:29AM actually there's two

another mmo from blizzard would have a decent chance of doing so

Gamers on the Street: Oceanic players persist despite performance issues {WoW}

Apr 14th 2008 8:00PM I'm in Sydney on Barthilas, been averaging around 2000ms latency between 6 and 11pm for the past 1.5 weeks and I seriously doubt lowerping would get my latency anywhere near playable on a single account, nevermind attempting to dual box (paying for 2 accounts sitting idle right now)

I'm also on cable, not shaped and don't have any problems with high latency to other games or sites.

QQ more? Damn straight I will. With enough QQing something will actually get done about the problem.
