I'm having a blast as a software engineer with TinyCo. I help maintain the cross-platform engine behind our iOS and Android games.

In the past I was known for my contributions to the WoW addon community. I co-authored the book World of Warcraft Programming: A Guide and Reference for Creating WoW Addons.

comment limiting the hard drive read speed for a program c++
You could use OS facilities to reduce the processes' priorities. There are probably existing tools for the job.

It's definitely a problem with the computer itself. It's my boss's home laptop he brought in for me to fix. He has several other computers at home working just fine on his network, and it's still having the same problem here at work.

comment Why does IE block its own script for collapsing XML tags?
Fair enough. Still can't shake the feeling there's room for improvement though (e.g. directly implementing this feature in IE or having some sort of trusted locations for scripts)
