  1. It was a good episode, but felt a tad unfocused at times. Could be the amount of jokes vs amount of gold discussions. Awesome singing and the mullet part was hilarious. Cartman wtf roflol! Gimp came in and turned the episode into an awesome face melting session with good gold making principles. He brought the kind of information that lasts no matter what patch we're on. Good job, Loved it! Keep the guests/interviews coming.

    Answer to my fellow BDF EU competition (Ruz the MFC barker?^^):
    You don't need more alts, really. The only thing you need is to research the professions that fit your play style. Whichever professions you have can make gold. Google "Profession + gold" = Problem solved, especially if you use multiple sources. More alts means more work, so it all comes down to how much you enjoy gold making.

    The only time i'd say that you should get more professions is if you are an altoholic that would level alts anyway or if you're addicted to making more gold. You don't need every single profession to make "insert the amount of gold you want here". What you need is understanding, when you have that you can move between markets using other crafters and farmers as a part of your business. Tip them well and have them craft 3-10x of what you need (ie. leg enchants). That way you save the levelling cost and increase the profit margins.

    Only do what's fun and when things get boring switch things around. Since I began blogging (1 month ago) I don't play the game the way I used to. I'm switching things up weekly now.

    Cheers, bud.

  2. Hiya, here is some grammar foo from wikipedia:

    The letters ä [æ] and ö [ø], although written as umlauted a and o, do not represent phonological umlauts, and they are considered independent graphemes; the letter shapes have been copied from Swedish. An appropriate parallel from the Latin alphabet are the characters C and G (uppercase), which historically have a closer kinship than many other characters (G is a derivation of C) but are considered distinct letters, and changing one for the other will change meanings.

    I think you meant umlaut, but its actually something completely different. Another way to get the international characters is to enable the international keyboard.

  3. I used sldatatext, but at that time been having error popup messages all the time. Gonna try it once more. )

  4. Just finished getting through eps. 8, 9, and 10. Good stuff.

    Some feedback:

    I really enjoyed the interviews with some of the other bloggers - nice to put a voice to a name (if that's even a thing)

    The "what's been selling this week" section I'm not a big fan of. What if, instead of running through everything, you guys talked about your best item or something that surprised you and then get into some analysis/speculation about it instead. I think that would be helpful for people in order to have faith in following your methodologies - having some more "meat" behind it.

    Last suggestion/tip: there is a new TSM module called "accounting". You should check it out as a replacement for mysales. It tracks purchases as well, and gives you a 7 day total and a 30 day total. You can even import your mysales data so that you don't lose anything. It's a separate module, so you have to go and grab it from curse, even if you are using all of the other modules.

    Looking forward to ep. 11

  5. @sklyanka I had a similar problem. I turn off all the displays besides friends and guild. Seems to work fine for me like that.

    @Kathroman Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep in mind when we record Episode 011.

    I'll also give the TSM accounting module. I don't tend to use any of those reporting addons much but I know I need to.
