Advice on WoW files not copying into external drive?

I plan to return to playing World of Warcraft. However, I need to keep the game on an external hard disk, or at least temporarily transfer it from the computer's drive to that disk frequently. When I played before, the files (install files or the installed game) would not copy to the external drive, although I have never had any such problems with a non-WoW file. I am thinking of getting an install CD for the game, so that instead of transferring from the computer to the external drive, I can just erase and reinstall. Problem is, I would need to reinstall all patches each time I did that. Does anyone have any ideas about why the external disk doesn't like WoW or how I can get around this?

Does having a PowerPc processor cause programs to not respond?

Is it simply possible that, because I have a 4-year-old Powerbook - OS 10.4.11, one month old new hard drive, memory and RAM maxed out, only used 1/4 of memory, system checked regularly with Onyx (with no problem) - I keep getting "program not responding to, especially, my Opera and Firefox browsers, as well as programs like Word, iPhoto, and iTunes? Plus, more than half the time my Powerbook won't close down when I ask it to and have to do a hard turn off, which can't be good for it. I've asked a couple of Mac forums, a Mac Genius, and my so-far trustworthy Mac guy whether having a PowerPC processor, instead of the newer Intel one, should make any difference. I got a resounding no. Still, does anyone have a contrarian and, perhaps, right, explanation? Thanks.

How to make sure a multiple-recipient is not marked as spam?

I want to send an email to several hundred school principals and am wondering if it is likely to be spam-filtered, given the amount of recipients. The content of the email is a clarification of some points that appeared in an educational journal (it is not spam of any kind). Would putting the addresses in the BCC box make any difference (other than hiding all the other recipients)? I'm using gmail, but Eudora is an option (although I have never used it before).

Great homemade caramel corn in Seattle?

Is there a great place in Seattle that makes homemade caramel corn? In Minnesota, where I'm from, places like Candyland offer giant tins of popped corn divided into three flavors--caramel corn in one section of the tin, plain in one, cheese popcorn in the third. You can smell it all the way down the street. Surely Seattle must have a place like this, right? Extra bonus points if it's north of downtown, Ballard-Fremont-Northgate area.
