Second Life News Bits 2019 Week #28

General News

Linden Homes – Patch Linden warned the community that the Lab has throttled the ‘Homes Page’. In this case ‘throttled’ means there is now a limit on how often you can refresh the page. Refresh too often and you get a timeout. The server simply refuses to send you a copy of the page.

People are refreshing the page to catch the near daily release of Bellisseria homes. It is bad enough when people sit there poking the F5 and Ctrl-F5 keys. What seems to have become intolerable is the use of automation to do the refreshing. There are browser plug-ins that automate the task. Who knew?

Between all the interested people and the few resorting to automation the web servers are overloading. Thus, the throttle.
