Re: [Raiding] World of Logs

Normally I do, but I'm sure that you've sat at your computer before sifting through 100,000 lines of a .txt file for crazy amounts of time trying to separate Tuesday from Wednesday or Majordomo from Al'Akir because you forgot to separate, extract, and delete your last log(s) when you logged off for the night.

I'm more than willing to help people understand, which is why I pointed out where the logs' default save location is on their drive. But, honestly some things that are or can be overly complicated tend to become more confusing with the more you *think* you know about them.

Granted, I'm one that wants to know the why behind the how, but now that I know about addon I described and the live logging option in the client, I don't care to know anything else about the coding of the WoL client, how it works, or any of the logistics of how my data gets from game to website. I log into the game, click live log on the client, and raid. That's it. When a fight is over, the data is there within seconds...and I don't have to log out to upload it.

Kind of like when I get in my car push the clutch and turn the key, it starts. I don't really care to know about air/fuel ratios, spark plug gaps, or internal combustion, as long as my shit works. Now, when it doesn't and I call Otto to come tow it to his garage for repair, I want him to explain the issue to me. More for reassurance that he knows what he's doing than for a thirst for knowledge.

WoL is mostly a pain in the ass, and rightfully so, it's an intricate and insanely complex program that I know is too much so for me to be a subject matter expert in without first suffering a ton of headaches. Why do you think people always forget to turn on or off their logs? Because its mainly a hassle to those who are selected or chose to log for the betterment of the group. I promise most people would be more than happy to cut out the extra steps and let the thing work by itself, without having to deal with */combatlog* or 50000 lines of text they're expected to upload after the raid when others are doing whatever they want.

This is just one of those things that "just works" and that enough explanation for me at this point, and is better left that way. I feel I know just enough about it to really frustrate myself.

Only if you've pegged 6th gear.

I've hit about 6000 rpm before...then the electronic limiter slapped my peepee @155.

I guess the speedometer reads 180 to attract douche bag buyers like me. At any rate, I can't wait to ditch this death trap for a pickup.

Sounds like a poser speedo.

I've pegged mine before, speedo only goes to 147mph, and its rare to have a road good enough to go there.

So if I were to do it again I hope I'd remember to bring my GPS to see how fast I actually got to.

H1 Point of View
H1 north of the airport was great for high speed runs. Elevated highway, well lit, and generally not alot of cops running radar. They mostly stay downtown for the night life at 3 a.m. hence, wide open GGGGOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

no idea, only 1/4 mi i've ever run was amost 8 years ago on my first bike, sv650s, it was 12.08s at 108.4 mph. on the duc I'd have issues keeping the front tire down in any gear below 4th. havent run the camaro; only challenge i've taken on in it is driving between augusta ga, and nashville, tn on a single tank of gas. now thats a feat of strength with the 6.2L.

after some research is seems 155mph is the fastes my car will currently go : /
