...and a strange one it was too. Apparently the boys are upgrading the wires and replacing the bits of chewing gum that hold all the servers together, so we shouldn't complain that things are absolutely horrible online ....well... they could at least say sorry.....on their status page...couldn't they??...
Last time I complained about the lack of info on the status page a certain Ari Blackthorne TM simply commented with the address of the status page, if you crashed several times today and looked...you would find....
"[Resolved] 1/29/2010 2:03 pm PST The issue with the regAPI has been resolved.
1/29/2010 12:35 pm PST
Some residents have been experiencing failures with the Second Life regAPI for certain requests. We are working on a resolution right now. Please check back to this blog for updates."
My previous complaint was that they only told you when stuff was allegedly fixed... (what's a regAPI anyway??)
Well, regAPI or not, things have been soooo slow loading.... the above photo is me inspecting sand at 0,0,0...hmmm.... immersive, I guess.
I have spent all of my time underwater this week when not dancing my spare time away with the lovely Nur in my local opium den.
Maeve and I are creating an Irish peat bog... photos to follow when things get more photogenic...
Frigg is currently busy so my Norwegian Village project has a few bits and bobs still to finish....but it is looking good..
Popped over to see Betty Rogan's photos (the above one is called "Watching you without me") at Raglan shire yesterday....always a nice place to visit...
...and Scarps sculpture garden too.... IM me for LM, if you don't have it...(sorry, no slurl)....
Also...I joined the newly acquired (by LL) Avatars United, which is a staggeringly forgettable social media site, for avatars. It has poor graphics and its hard to see it taking off to be honest. I thought...well...that's nice, this disproves my previous idea that everyone is out to get my Real Name and sell me junk.
However.....before I left the site, I was asked if I wouldn't mind answering a survey...for feedback. Now being the Public Spirited Being that I am, I agreed.
The first 3 things they wanted to know where.... age, sex, job...... now, I ask you..how is that gonna help their feedback, really. Duh!!
I have the terrible foreboding that SL is gonna become a 3D Facebook if some people have their way. Luckily I think it will be a fruitless exercise, this Mass StoopidvilleSL. Let's hope the pockets of creative anarchy don't all have to get on their life-rafts and jump ship to Reaction Grid or Open Sims.
And....absolutely brilliant, I thought, this video on Dusan's blog..... has to be seen...
....and his recent post is, as often, a must read.
Oh, and Dusan is gonna pour coffee over my head for complaining about the Lav... apparently picking the bits of pizza out of their keyboards is real tricky and I shouldn't complain...... they are doing a really good job, he says. Bloody well should be doing a good job when you think of the mountains of cash they take of their "community" of poor suckers... i.e. me.
...and lastly......., the Australian Open has finished, and I am now weaned off TV til the French.... watch out prims...I'm back.
