I bought a new book yesterday. So, I'm going to work on yet another huge waste of time -- learning to write add-ons for World of Warcraft. I say it's a waste of time because I barely play the game anyway. In fact, I rarely enjoy it when I do. But I have friends and family there, and sometimes it's a good way to escape for an hour or two.
My dream add-on, and my initial impetus for wanting to learn to write add-ons in the first place, is Moron Filter. If I could just avoid seeing the chat from people who type in all-caps, type "lol" and its evil family members, and other pet peeves (numbers instead of words), I'd enjoy the experience a lot more.
This blog post is the first in a series which will eventually include my code as it takes shape. For now, I'll leave you with the interesting fact that Lua, the language used to script the game's UI, has been ported to the Lego Mindstorms NXT platform.
