What have you done for your Clan today? Here you can toot your own horn.. We want to know :)~



Feb 28, 2010--Ozz, a very new member has hosted his first event. What should of been an hour event turned up to be a 5 hour event. Donations to sim were
honorable and it was a great event. Ozz was the perfect host to a
perfect day. I feel Ozz will make a great addition to our Clan and he
has far surpassed the expectations of the event. Thank you Ozz for a
wonderful day, you made a lot of people happy and we are proud to have

LINUX READY FOR PRIME TIME-- ALMOST

Several years ago I experimented with Linux. While the operating system was powerful, the experience overall was less than satisfying. Compatibility factors, bugs, unfriendly interfaces... it just didn't rock my boat.



Over the years I've kept up somewhat with Linux-- and have watched it grow from fledgling product to full-bore industry standard. Today, Fortune 500 companies are recognizing immense savings by installing Linux instead of Windows. Second Life itself is in fact, run on a… Continue

FIRST REACTIONS TO VIEWER 2.0

Today Linden Lab released the BETA version of Viewer 2.0. Personally I don't consider it beta. It is more like Alpha software that has been released on the main grid for customers to test out and debug. It still has a long way to go before I would consider it an acceptable and useful product.



The most telling thing about this viewer is that in group discussions (not just Elf Clan, but other groups) the response has been largely negative. What I saw were not people who were angry… Continue

ELF CLAN DAILY BLIP

"Follow" this post for regular updates.



Sometimes we have something we want to share, but it doesn't really warrant its own blog page.



Twitter allows posting small chat-bytes. Problem: 140 characters waaay too short... and it's not permanent.



So I thought we'd start a special mini-blog here in the form of short-clip comments... items too short to warrant their own blog but still worth posting.

KILLING THE GOLDEN GOOSE

Elf Clan member Kylinn Leimes recently cited a blog page titled "WhoseTube", in which a member of a band explains how their record company for no reasons other than sheer greed, via legal paranoia dropped their sales right through the floor. In that article, I noticed a lot of correlations between that record label and Linden Lab, so felt it was worth writing a blog demonstrating how a company can be self-destructive by attempting to… Continue

IS LNDEN LAB RUNNING 8 SIMS TO A SERVER BOX?

Hey everyone, I was just handed a URL and would like to present it for examination and discussion. If this pans out to be true... this is quite alarming. It also goes a long way toward explaining the intensely increased lag over the past couple of months.



Claim: LL is now running EIGHT sims per server: …

MAKES YA THINK

Dwagonny Philosophical Stuffs.



Zauber sent me to the following jpg about video piracy. Now I not in any way condones piracy, but one has to wonder about companies charging $19.95 to $29.95 for what is basically some digital files on a 10 cent piece of plastic and some packaging. I personally think $7.95 to $9.95 is a far more reasonable fee... and even that prolly brings in some pretty hefty profit.



In additions, I has to wonder about a whole nation of people dat constantly… Continue

OPEN LETTER TO MARK KINGDON, CEO SL

I recently watched a short interview with Mark Kingdon, CEO of Linden Lab (Second Life). That interview is here:

My general impression of this interview was positive. As expected, Mark is somewhat charismatic and from visible appearances, a likable person.… Continue

WAYFINDER PREDICTIONS FOR 2010-- and beyond

I thought I'd have a little fun here and post a few predictions for 2010 in regard to Linden Lab, Second Life and VR in general. I did so back in 2008 and the predictions were eerily accurate. I have no crystal ball of course... but I have historically had the knack of pegging SL to the wall. So we'll see over the next year or two if that trend continues. : )



Fair note: don't expect this blog to be polite, politically correct or to pull any punches.… Continue

LINDEN HOMES-ANOTHER JADED BLOG

Linden Lab has announced the release of "Linden Homes"... pre-designed and pre-built homes available to Premium users on their 512m start-up land plot. LL has always included 512m of land with premium membership. But now they're throwing in a ready-made home with the package.



"We are providing Linden Homes because we want to help residents to experience the benefits of owning their own home in Second Life. Land can be complicated for new and existing… Continue

DA DWAGON FIGURES OUT HOMESTEADS

For long time I wunnered why it was Linden Lab taked nice, fun, OpenSpace sims an maked dems lots more spensive (from $75 a month to $125 a month) and losted thousands of sims and maked customers angry at same time. Dat just Dodo head thinkin.



Today I thinks I figure it out:



Full sim: $295 a month for 15,000 prims on 256m sq land



For $300, we could originally gets FOUR OpenSpace sims with 15000 prims and 512m sq land.



That means same price, same prim count,… Continue

THE END OF THE DESKTOP

I was visiting the local computer store today, and witnessed what I consider to be the beginning of the end of the desktop:



SONY LAPTOP

16" screen

Blu-Ray drive

8 gigs RAM

I-7 quad-core processor

Nvidia 340 graphics card (the new GeForce that runs much faster than existing graphics cards)

500 gig hard drive

Full-size keyboard with numeric pad

$1,350



The laptop computer described above is more powerful… Continue

IS XSTREETSL KILLING IN-WORLD SALES?

They should have left it alone. They should have let it continue in third-party hands.



Last year, Linden Lab bought the SLX web-based market and re-named it XstreetSL. There has been much controversy around that acquisition.



At face value it seemed like a wise move: set up a nice shopping area where people don't have to deal with lag, where they can shop quickly and hopefully-- profitably-- without having to skip from store to store in-world. Tie that in directly to Second… Continue
