00:34.00Kirkburn|afkI ... don't think I can. But it's something you all want to know :P
00:34.12Sky2042Try again.
00:34.44pcj"oh hey guys i just found something out really cool but i can't tell you"
00:34.46pcjyeah what does that sound like
00:34.49pcjstop trying
00:36.20Sky2042there's like one thing I think you could possibly be thinking, and that would be the wrath release date. which is probably not set in stone anyway, so I doubt that's it either.

00:36.53Sky2042ie, you fail.
00:37.13Kirkburn|afkCome Monday, you will see (possibly before from other sources)
00:40.09Kirkburn|afkAnd now I have a way to prove it :P
00:40.38pcjthis better be good
00:41.56g0urracome monday where?
00:43.27Kirkburn|afkSeveral of our wikis, and possible other places
00:47.23Kirkburn|afkI'm mean, but I value my life. :)
00:47.45Kirkburn|afkAnyway, it's /good/ news
00:47.54Sky2042so tell us fool, and drop the charade.
00:48.02Sky2042or pm us, or something -_-
00:48.08g0urrajust PM

00:52.46Kirkburn|afkWe are talking about the "Where would you like to go?" page, right?

00:53.38g0urraI'll rip the secrets from your flesh!
00:53.46Kirkburn|afkFine, I can probably tell you this much: it's an ad buy.
00:53.59g0urraWHAT WHAT
00:54.14pcjah that answers my questions
00:54.22pcjyou're probably right sky

00:54.33Kirkburn|afkYeah, the interesting bit is what's /in/ the ad
00:54.40Adysblizzard porn
00:54.49pcji can now push every date in the next year through my MD5 hasher
00:54.50Kirkburn|afkIt won't be on WoWWiki though, it'll be on some other wikis
00:55.09Kirkburn|afkpcj, I'm not silly enough to not take precautions against that :P
00:55.10AdysSo kirk, did blizzard finally buy ads from wikia?
00:55.16g0urraI know it's going to be porn
00:55.20g0urraso that people will click on ads
00:55.32Kirkburn|afkAdys, we've run WoW ads elsewhere for a while
00:55.39g0urra"click here for draenei vs troll porn"
00:55.47AdysI dont doubt you've run every single possible ad
00:55.50Kirkburn|afkEven had wikis ask us to stop showing WoW ads on their MMO wiki :P
00:55.51Adyswith the range you got.
00:56.17Kirkburn|afkAdys, I don't recall saying I did?
00:56.27Kirkburn|afk*we did
00:56.28AdysIm just tro- er, kidding
00:58.31AdysSo anyway, is it something horribly obvious (as in a wow ad taken from the tv commercials), or is it actually something cool and NOT wow related?
01:01.43Kirkburn|afkNo, it's WoW related
01:02.19Adysnight weaky

16:52.16mxsprobably contains all of TBC
16:52.48Fisker-Do you mean like 1.1->3.0.1 or 2.0->3.0.1?
16:53.20mxs2.0->3.0.1, but without TBC installed
16:53.25Fisker-ah ok
16:53.28mxsnot sure whether it would work from 1.x
16:53.47Fisker-I hope they make a standalone installer sometime
16:54.20Fisker-Like TBC + Classic or WotLK + TBC + Classic in one install
16:54.50mxsthe Chinese got that

21:43.51llamuhanyone care to help me with installing a patch?
21:45.12llamuhive downloaded the most recent patch from a mirror on wowwiki and it only contains tome 2.mpq
21:45.30llamuhno exe..  ive tried using bnupdate but it does not find the patch
21:46.33kd3tome 2 gets put in ~/wow/Updates/
21:46.35kd3and that's it
21:46.56kd3there's no installable data with the background patch that was put out a few days ago
21:48.51llamuhoh ok
21:49.13llamuhwell thank you
21:49.26llamuhi was hoping to be able to apply this thinking if may fix the nvidia FPS problem
21:49.40pcjunless you're using windows vista
21:49.49pcjthen it doesnt go in your wow folder
21:49.51llamuhi am using vista.
21:51.44llamuhso where does it go in vista?
21:52.52llamuhthe launcher still thinks i do not have the patch, heh
21:53.06pcjC:\users\Public\Documents\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft\Updates
21:53.44llamuhi wonder if that folder exists for me
21:53.55pcjC:\users\Public\Documents\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft\ create folder updates
21:53.56llamuhi copied my wow installation from my XP machine
21:54.04kd3run the background downloader once. it'll create it. then move whatever your downloaded into that folder
21:54.40llamuhyeah im just wondering if i could have additional problems due to copying my wow folder rather than doing a fresh install
21:55.00kd3you won't
21:58.19llamuhthat seems like a strange place to put the files.. pub docs? hm
21:58.24llamuhwonder what their reasoning is for that..
21:58.46pcjcan't write to program files folder
21:58.51pcjshouldn't write to program files folder
21:58.58pcjrequires elevation
21:58.59llamuhoh really?!
21:59.14llamuhand i call myself a computer tech ;\
21:59.28llamuhi turn off all that stuff though so i dont notice it
21:59.34pcjthey should've put it in appdata tho
21:59.46pcjdocuments should only contain documents the user creates
22:00.50*** join/#wowwiki Norsken (
22:00.55llamuhhi norsken
22:02.59llamuhso this "patch" does not actually install anything?  its merely in preperation for the rest of the patch to be released?
22:03.57llamuhwill the rest of it be lich king?
22:04.07Norskenhey llamuh.
22:04.19kd3it's all patch 3.0.x data... textures, models, sounds... etc
22:04.54llamuhim just ready for a patch..  ready to finally be able to play wow again
22:05.06llamuhthe 2.4 patch has made it impossible for me
22:05.21kd3you bug tech support? what version of the nvidia drivers are you running?
22:05.35llamuhtons of people have bugged them over this
22:05.37llamuhi have not personally
22:05.41llamuhnobody has found afix
22:05.52llamuhive used proably 20 different drivers
22:06.04llamuhOEM and hacked
22:06.20llamuhtweaked settings, patched windows, disabled various other drivers, etc
22:06.37llamuhive seen tons of threads on various sites about the problem..  no resolution
22:07.37llamuhthe problem is, when looking or moving around, everything is great for a few seconds running at normal FPS then it drops down to like 5 FPS making evenything pause and laggy, then jumps back up to full FPS for a few seconds
22:07.44llamuhjust keeps going through that cycle
22:08.13llamuhi have a core2duo 1.83, 4gb DDR2, nvidia geforce 7600
22:08.21llamuhso it should be strong enough to play it
22:08.26llamuhive lowered the resolution and turned off all effects
22:08.30llamuhbarely helps
