I sometimes use Modafinal when I'm working late or need an extra boost. To me it's much more noticeable than caffeine; it keeps me concentrating all day and doesn't make me jittery. Not recreational though. Anyone else it whilst coding?
I switched from Windows 7 to OpenSuse and have not looked back. The community is great, the platform is stable and KDE is the most productive desktop environment for me. The new Dolphin file manager is reason alone to switch.
I read somewhere that twitter feeds were being used as seeds for random number generators. Found the page here http://pyevolve.sourceforge.net/wordpress/?p=631
This seems like a great approach. Could someone explain the benefits of this over the above, why it is needed and how can we be sure they are truly random.
You can grind gold (repeatably kill certain mobs) and sell their drops on the AH. You can make anywhere between 100-200G an hour depending on how good you are and how many mobs there are to kill.
I believe these guys were raiding SSC and TK (high level instances) for drops which can be sold on the AH for around 1000G. Also once you reach such a high level you don't have much to spend your gold on.
Normally people that farm gold live in countries where the national wage is low - And so the term "Chinese gold farmer" is used. I would suspect they make around $4-6 an hour.
