CONNECTING TO REACTION GRID

REACTION GRID is an Open Sim virtual world external to Second Life. It is not operated or controlled by Linden Lab. RG offers more powerful building tools and far lower prices than SL. It is a builder's paradise.



HOME SIM: Elf Haven



THE ADVANTAGES

Low cost, better building tools (such as megaprims), peace and quiet.



THE DISADVANTAGES

It's still in development stage so there are bugs. But then... there are bugs on SL too. So… Continue

LINDEN LAB MEASURING TOOLS MALFUNCTIONING

LINDEN LAB MEASURING TOOLS MALFUNCTIONING



With the advent of "Ghosted Scripts" (scripts that remain functioning on a sim when the prim is deleted) and talks at Linden Lab regarding limiting scripting on a parcel basis, I decided to start tracking script operations on our sims. What I've discovered is that the script measurement tools themselves appear to be unreliable, the results inconsistent. I present evidence of such here.



Only ESTATE MANAGERS can measure the… Continue

An Open Offer / Challenge to Linden Lab

I was chatting with a friend last night about the current deplorable state of Second Life, abusive customer policies, and continued degrading performance of the grid.



My friend suggested: "Why don't you make Linden Lab an offer to fix Second Life and see what they do?"



We both had a good laugh at that. But the more I thought about it, the more it became less laughable. I suppose it's somewhat humorous from the aspect of Linden Lab actually admitting anything is wrong or… Continue

Virtual Worlds Have Nothing on This

If any of us think we can't possibly live without our virtual environment, visit this site. It contains two LIVE cameras trained on an Eagle's nest. How often do you get to see something like this?



EAGLE LIVE CAM



There are lots and lots of things that RL has to offer. Sometimes SL causes us to lose track of what's going on around us. Things like this serve as good remiders. No virtual eagle will ever be this… Continue

Proof it COULD Have Been Fixed-- and Wasn't

Many people are well aware of the texture load issues on Second Life. We know these issues have gone on for years... and increased exponentially in 2008 when Linden Lab created a denial-of-service attack on their own servers-- and failed to fix it.



It is documented fact (admitted by LL's own Dan Linden) that some 80% of all textures on Second Life take more than 30 seconds to load. That is inexcusable performance. While Linden Lab has claimed that this is a "very difficult problem to… Continue

MAKING WISER INVESTMENTS

THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE

For quite some time now, I and others have pointed out that Linden Lab has ignored the essential elements that would help Second Life to grow and become what it had every right to become. Instead of core foundation issues, the company has consistently favored eye-candy toys and gizmos.



Recently I went on record here stating that-- unless LL cleans up their act and engages in some serious policy changes-- I don't expect them to last more than a year… Continue

Linden Lab Loses out on Education

LINDEN LAB LOSES OUT ON EDUCATION



As almost everyone is aware, several months ago Linden Lab shot themselves in both feet and both kneecaps when they raised the price on Open Space sims. We've discussed this here extensively. As of mid-February, more than 5,500 such sims had closed down due to a 27% price hike, a result of customers for once having the courage to stand up and say NO. (Elf Clan itself is shutting down 6 such sims, 3 of which have already closed). July 1, when a… Continue
