  1. The Cost of Running TSM

    by , August 23rd, 2014 at 10:54 PM (//no comment)
    So, a few weeks ago I wrote up a monthly budget for TSM for the first time ever (now that our costs are stable with the new website). I thought it'd be a good idea to share an overview of our budget here, so people can see what it takes to run a project like TSM.

    Here are our current expenses (per-month) in descending order:
    • $85 - Servers (We currently run 6 individual VPS's of various power from Ramnode)
    • $30 - Email Service (based on our current rate of ~5k notification

    To be (a TUJ replacement), or not to be (a TUJ replacement) - is that the question?

  3. WoW-GPS 2.0 - How to Build a Better Shuffler

    by , July 21st, 2014 at 08:23 AM (WoW-GPS Dev Blog)
    So, I started a bit of a conversation the other day about the new WoWGPS shufflers via twitter: https://twitter.com/wowgps/status/489390770671988737

    I stopped after a realized I could probably go on forever about it, and decided to flesh things out a bit more in a blog post.

    A Brief History of WoWGPS Shufflers
    So far, I've built the equivalent of 5 shufflers for WoWGPS:
    1) Saronite shuffle

  4. WoW-GPS 2.0 - Data Progress

    by , July 19th, 2014 at 01:12 PM (WoW-GPS Dev Blog)

    As I mentioned in the comments of the last progress post, I had finished scaling up all the US realms and was starting to work on adding EU realms this past week. It wasn't too bad at first - sure, the extra frequency was quite noticeable, and the EU batches were quickly surpassing the US ones in terms of volume, even though I was still fetching fewer realms, overall.

  5. WoW-GPS 2.0 Stats

    by , July 11th, 2014 at 08:50 AM (WoW-GPS Dev Blog)
    Now that I've got a good chunk of data to work with on the back-end, I thought it might be fun to start running some item stats calculations - both to test response time from the Data server and to see how my alternative method would stack up against other data sources.

    For those of you who have been following along, you might recall that I mentioned I wanted to try a different pricing method in the comments of this post: http://stormspire.net/blogs/kathroma...api-first.html. I'd ...
