I thought Hagara was an orc, too. Then I read the dungeon journal. She's Undead.

Jan 2nd 2012 12:01AM Saying the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 is like saying the calendar on your wall ends on Dec 31.

The "Round Calendar" that most people think of when they imagine the Mayan calendar really only represents a cyclical time span of about 52 years (just like your wall calendar only represents a cyclical time span of 1 year). At the end, it simply starts over.

There is also "Long Count" calendar, which is actually linear and not round or cyclical. It uses a (mostly) base-20 system to describe dates, the fifth digit of which rolls over approximately every 394 years. Scholars refer to this span of time as a b'ak'tun.

According to Mayan mythology, we are living on Earth 4.0. There were 3 failed attempts prior. The last failed attempt was rebooted at the end of its 13th b'ak'tun, a date that's been calculated as August 11, 3114 BCE.

The end of Earth 4.0's 13th b'ak'tun occurs on...December 21, 2012. Symbolically, it represents making it further than the previous attempt. But, if marked with any kind of significance in their culture (which is debated), it would be a day of celebration, not dread. And the calendar certainly doesn't "end" on that day.

Sep 29th 2011 8:14PM To fix it (since the addon doesn't look like it's been updated in a while), follow these steps:

1. Navigate to <your WoW directory>\interface\addons\AutoLootMaster
2. Open AutoLootMaster.lua in your preferred text editor (vim, notepad, etc) (If you're not familiar with looking at/editing code, you may want to make a backup copy of the file first)
3. Delete or comment out (by prepending with --) lines 97 (print("googoo"); in almEventHandle) and 144 (print("gaagaa"); in almOnUpdate)
4. Save the file
