Second Life Grid Down
Lindal Kidd has posted about the grid being down Friday night (5/8). I’m usually out shooting pool and drinking. So, I wouldn’t notice the grid being down on a Friday night. See: Grid Down! Residents Scratch Heads.
As to the cause… we don’t know. The grid status message appears to have been a standard canned message.
Lab Chat is the monthly, or so, meeting with the Lindens. Ciaran has coverage of the meeting. It is mostly about the format and nothing about what was discussed. Ciaran answers the ‘How’ not the ‘What’ of the meeting. See: Lab Chat Draws The Crowds And The Format Works
Drax has the audio up here: lab chat numero three

I would have to say the Bernie supporters have it.
I was surprised I made a little stir on Twitter with Bernie Sanders Protested by a Griefer. (Check the comments for links.) Hamlet and most of the media are still off in their agenda based wonderland.
For about five years Euclideon has been promising unlimited polygons in 3D real time rendering. Well, the equivalency of polygons. But, it has been mostly internal development without any product we could see. That changes this month.
For a months I have written about the Lab upgrading the viewer to use TSL 1.2 protocol for security of money transactions. May 4th the Lab announced that by June 15 both the viewer and our web browsers will have to have TSL 1.2 compatibility to do anything with money on the Linden Lab properties.
