Second Life News Week #25

Other News

Today, Tuesday, was the Server-Scripting UG meeting with the quarterly music thing with Tukso this quarter.

TP/Crossing Disconnects – Lindens think they have most of the problem handled. They aren’t saying much as they don’t want to influence the bug reporting. I think additional fixes are in Blue Steel, but I don’t have any objective information to say so.

The Le Tigre and Magnum regions have the EEP fixes for legacy viewers… the ones we are using.

Facebook’s Bitcoin – Facebook is planning to get into the cyber-currency game. Their block-chain coin will be named Libra… free? Does anyone think they are providing a free service from the goodness of their heart? I don’t. The concerns being voiced are based on FB’s history of privacy invasion. Now, they will have access to your spending and earning information. A FB alternative is MeWe.com.

FaceApp – This has recently become is a small thing in SL. It is an app for mobile devices to edit portrait images. It is quite fun. I just wrote a how-to on getting it to run on a PC or Mac: The FaceApp and Second Life 

Be Less Like Barbie, More Like Elizabeth Warren – Hamlet has an article where the ‘Should’ people are telling us again what we should do or the world will end. The clueless continue to buy into the decades’ old theme of change the end is near. We’ll all starve when the population goes over 4 billion, the polar bears are going extinct – oops now we have too many, the polar ice caps will be gone by 2013… Quoting NASA 2014 “Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s.” which is when the fear was global cooling, … and Warren is not an American Indian no matter what kind of cheeks she has.
