comment What are some key ways for someone new to FPS games to improve their game?
On a PC game, definitely learn to use mouse-look effectively. Once you've got it down, you can change direction at the speed of your reflexes rather than the repeat speed of your keyboard.

comment Healer add-ons for end-game raiding in WoW?
I already use OmniCC (didn't list it above since it doesn't affect screen real estate...). Also, it looks like you use both Skada and Omen?

Out of curiosity, your first two links point to the same place... if that was intended? (Curse WebSense's irrational fear of BlogSpot!)

comment What is “wall riding”?
The basic idea is that you enter the corner at such a high speed so that normally you would lose control and wreck, but since your car is against the outside wall it basically slingshots you around the corner at high speed while maintaining control.

comment What is bunny hopping?
It was also useful in games such as UT to avoid/minimize splash damage from rockets and flak shells.

Correct - the different indicator lights can mean different things, from an unplugged cable to catastrophic failure.

comment What does the term “carebear” mean in Eve Online?
If you look up "carebear" (merge the words together) it shows both this general definition and the Eve-specific one.

comment How do I respec from DPS to healing?
I think the main reason we don't have more healers is that it's a casual guild that has grown in a fairly organic way rather than focusing on "what we need" to fill a raid team. We have less than 20 level 80s, and they're all over the board in terms of experience - 3 or 4 are regular PuG members (for other guilds) in ICC, with 5.5K GS and multiple raid achievements. The rest range all the way down to people like me, who are still fresh 80s with no idea what we're doing. :)
