Moonlight 1.0 Brings Silverlight Content To Linux

You are correct. I can't seem to find any references to DOM2 being included in IE8, while they tout the inclusion of HTML5 support...

I use Konqueror, btw.

Review: Wrath of the Lich King

big_groo Re:My Review (545 comments)

I'm *glad* your multiboxing doesn't work. I think multiboxing should be banned. Totally unfair when it comes to PVP. Never mind when someone like this enters your zone, you don't stand a chance at questing anywhere near him(her). Think of it like the proverbial 'Bull in a China shop'. (He's on Aegwyn, incidentally...)

I don't care what argument you use, you're not in control of each of your characters. Proof? Your own words: almost always breaks "/follow" which means I have to stop and manually move my followers forward till my main appears then re-follow.

The argument for allowing multi-boxing has always been 'well, the players are in control of all the characters'. No they're not. Do you manually cast each spell (if you're a caster) on each toon set to '/follow'? No. You don't. All spells are cast from the main.

So, I can't say I'm disappointed that you're having problems with your multi-box setup. I also understand that this is the way you enjoy the game, but please understand that it takes the enjoyment *out* of the game for many others.

Bliz won't do anything about it as they're happily collecting revenue from each account.
