Servers

The main channel is being restarted and updated with version #17.09.14.508549. The updated is described in the release notes as; Improvements to address some problems that could degrade simulator performance in rare cases. I think these are the fixes for some of the recovery problems we see after the SL system goes down. Users attempting to login in mass after an outage create a rare and unique set of problems for the system.

Server-Scripting UG 2017-09-26

Blue Steel and Le Tigre are possibly going to update, but maybe not. As of this morning as I write the Lindens have not decided.

Magnum is getting #17.09.22.508905. This is an update described as; Improvements to email verification logic. My understanding is a hand comes out of the screen, grabs you by the neck and shakes you, then compares your face to the one DMV has on file… The improvement is in the system response message being updated from ‘Yeah, it’s them’ to a stately ‘Verified’.

…Actually… I have no clue… But, from the Server-Scripting meeting today the word is this is part of the change that will eventually refuse to send email to unverified email addresses. For now, they are still sending. But, someday.

There also have been some glitches with the Glytch creatures. I suspect lots of people are playing the new game. So, this may be an overload thing.

It will be interesting to see if stores start adding Glytches to their regions to attract people.
