WoW directly from the source, doing social media instead of developing an OS what a change for Spencer Shanson.
@Thor since you can have a look what part of the OS did he worked on? Graphics.library I guess.

The text is in the zip file from:
http://grandis.nu/eabsearch/search.p...=&httplinks=on

The properly typeset version (assuming Dan's was the same) looked like this the attached picture.

This is the result of lazy programming, and not following interfaces correctly, exactly the same problem that is created here in first place.


If programs want to cooperate, they need to follow the documented interfaces, this is exactly what I request all the time. That there is much incompetent programming, especially in the patch area, you don't need to tell me. But that shouldn't be the motivation to continue with even more incompetent programming.
No, but it stops other peoples incompetant programming interfering.
