Turns your mailbox into another bank, plus a whole lot more.

  • Shows a dialog with all items and money in your mailbox.
  • Allows you to take individual items even if they were all sent in one email.
  • Mark multiple items to take without taking all.

Basic Threat Bar image

A bar that displays your threat. Duh.

Quite customizable. I just use it for a slim bar. It helps me know when I've built too much threat and reminds me when I've caught it.

I'm uncertain if I actually need this. Either I've forgotten about it because it's second-nature, or because I don't actually use it.

Seems to work for Legion

World of Warcraft > AddOns >

https://github.com/TekNoLogic/tekErr

A simple error manager. When an error is caught it will blink a small minimap icon to inform you. Clicking the icon opens a panel listing all errors. Clicking an error shows a full stack trace, handy to copy/paste into a bug report.

You can also access the panel via an LDB launcher or by typing /err or /tekerr

_DevPadEditor

World of Warcraft > AddOns >

my update - https://github.com/spiralofhope/_DevPad.GUI

An in-game text editor and addon authoring tool (Lua).

Keep notes with it, write Lua scripts, or prototype addon concepts in its trimmed down development environment. Organize your scripts into folders and share them with other _DevPad users. Scripts can run automatically on login like mini addons, and can call each other like libraries or dependencies.

An absolutely spectacular AddOn that I'm not sure I can live without.

Git-Logo-1788C.png

git >

Provides a reasonable environment for working with git while trapped on Windows. A console window with bash, various everyday linux console applications, and git.

I love it, and use it regularly for sane scripting when trapped on Windows, via bash, as well as for git itself.

Star Wars - The Old Republic image

Yet another MMO, but this one is set in the Star Wars universe. Because light sabres, yo.

Conclusion: Amateur night.

This would have been great in the late nineties. Right now, the voiceovers are fantastic but the quest interactive cutscenes are ugly. The choices are sometimes vague and unforgiving. There is spectacular effort with all the rendered videos, but that just took away from resources for the game itself.

Final Fantasy 14 image

Entertainment > Games >

(on Wikipedia)
http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/

Yet another MMO, but Japanese and built on a huge franchise and the smouldering remains of an abysmal failure.

This plays just like any old console game, even when I was using the keyboard. It's painful. I don't know.. it just doesn't do it for me.

  • Properly named Final Fantasy XIV
  • Technically I'm looking at Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
  • aka ファイナルファンタジーXIV: 新生エオルゼア
  • aka Fainaru Fantajī Fōtīn: Shinsei Eoruzea

    • Apparently that's not a joke.
