Excellent, I was just weary of this, the same way I get when a spider starts crawling towards me... what is that little guy up to?

I didn't mean to imply that the Curse Client was bad. I just didn't like the datamining part of it which is not described as optional unless apparently, you download it..

* Quest information, starting and end points, objectives, rewards
* Maps, zones, and locations
* Character profiles and statistics

A few years ago I was heavily Ace Addon based and I used the Ace Updater. This seems to have been replaced with the Curse Client but the Ace Updater didn't collect info, at least not that I was aware of in this manner. Cheers
