OZ rephrases, how many Lindens use SL recreationally? A significant number. He says he constantly meets people that do. But, he has not made an attempt to quantify it.
In regard to priorities, the varity of interests in SL is so huge that no matter what the Lab works on someone will feel their important feature is being ignored. With Region Windlight Oz got equal email, IM’s, and note cards, saying great thanks and why did you waste time on that when we need … filling your fav feature.
01:19:30 – Before the mesh release you (Oz) were saying the release of mesh would push sdoption of the SL Viewer. That did not happen. Have you changed you thinking on that in regard to future feature releases?
Oz places his focus on being sure all viewers have the new features whether that increases the LL viewer market share or not.
01:22:00 – Question on getting better titles and comments on code in the repositories.
Oz asked Jessica to send that question to him and he’ll hang it on his wall. I suppose he’ll be talking some trash to the Lab’s coders to do better.
01:22:40 – are there any projects ongoing at the Lab that you can tell us about? Oz says there isn’t anything he can talk about. He did say there are some really cool things coming.
01:23:30 – Why would you break temporary texture upload? Oz says they haven’t broken temporary texture upload. I’ve been under the impression they had. But, the situation is the rumor is the avatar render pipeline is being rebuilt to stop bake-fail. The probability is that such the rebuild will break temp upload. It is not certain. If it does break it, it will be inadvertent.
The current temp upload is a misuse of a server feature. It never should have been allowed. If it had been implemented on Oz’s watch, he would have stopped it. He isn’t going to take any action. But he will not promise not to break it. However, if they do break it, he hopes they can provide a better alternative.
Oz goes on to explain how he would like to see the conversations proceed to develop an replacement for temp upload.
01:27:00 – Jessica trying to get Oz to commit to regular meetings. Oz open to the idea but not willing to commit.
There are a number of topics I would like to address. But, summarizing a 90 minute video is a burn out task. I’m ready for pizza and beer.
