253 - A reminder...

Are you a machinimaker? Do you use WoW model viewer?

If the answer is yes,

REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR CURRENT WoW DIRECTORY BEFORE WEDNESDAY.

On the 15th of October, the pre-WotLK patch will hit the servers. It WILL cripple the current WoW model viewer functionality, so back up your WoW now.

The simplest way to do the backing up is to create a folder called "WoWold" (for example) and just copy the contents of your current game folder there.

It might take a while until a new, fully working, WotLK compatible version is released. Same thing with map viewer.

There is an "under development" version of a WotLK model viewer available, but reading the comments it seems quite buggy. I personally have not tested it yet. More info about it on WoW model viewer forums.
