  1. Weekend Project: Integration Testing for TSM

    It's been a while since I've posted here, but this weekend I've been working on a project which I've wanted to tackle for a while. Mainly, I just wanted to figure out how doable it would be, and use it as an excuse to learn more about Python and automation framework design. The project was to "bot" TSM, in the name of automated integration testing. Fair warning: this is going to be a long post.

    What does this mean?

    Well, as you may know, the TradeSkillMaster addon ...
  2. I'm Back!

    Real life devoured me pretty heartily at the start of Mists, coupled with the complete and utter dissolution of my primary guild. Disappointed with the state of things, I left WoW for a bit, only returning at the launch of Warlords. With the amount of insanity that weekend posed, coupled with the lack of flight after hitting level cap (yes, I'm one of *those* people), I wasn't any more impressed, and I took off again for greener pastures, namely where I wasn't required to pay out a monthly fee ...
  3. Closing Time?

    I've been putting off writing this post for awhile now, but honestly, it's come to the point of merely delaying the inevitable. I think it's time to close the doors on future development of the WoW-GPS project. Make no mistake, although this may seem abrupt, this has not been an easy decision to make. This is a project that I've personally invested hundreds of hours in, personal resources, and to not be able to see 2.0 come to full fruition is particularly disappointing. I'll try to spell out of ...
  4. WoW-GPS: Where to go from here?

    A few weeks ago, I outlined some tentative plans for the future of this project. Although I wasn't very specific, it's been something I've been thinking about a lot and really wrestling with the past couple weeks. I started playing D3 again last week, thinking it might help to rekindle some interest/motivation to get back into WoW. After put a lot of thought into it, here's where I'm at in term of WoW, specifically in regards to gold-making:

    Back when I first started getting into ...
  5. Scanning Even Faster

    First of all, I've talked about how extremely optimized TSM's scans already are in the past. I have no doubt that, when compared apples to apples, TSM's scan speed blows any other addon out of the water as it stands today. Comparing TSM to other addons is not the purpose of this blog post, just know that there are already a ton of optimizations in place in TSM's scanning code as I've previously described.

    At the end of the day, scanning fast comes down to scanning less pages. Nearly ...
