SL’s Top 10 Favorite Sex Places, according to Jessica

Jessica on Second Life Adventures went on a quest to find the top 10 popular places for sex. It isn’t a highly precise survey, but neither is sex highly precise…

★ Look 480

★ Look 480

You’ll find some interesting places to visit. Jessica points out an oddity in the capture-rape BDSM areas of SL, like Public Disgrace. Quoting her:

There is nothing worse than being on a capture / rape type of place and being asked for sex.

Being asked!

Hello guys, just fucking do it, don’t be kind, don’t be polite, don’t ask for consent. Just do it. That’s what a rape role play is all about. I was asked several times for sex. They actually did ask!

I have seen this happen… I think the Left’s anti-male propaganda is having an effect. If you think that is silly, rate THIS on your scale of the ridiculous. They, government, are moving right into our bedrooms…

Jessica has no idea why oRaGsMs is such a popular place. It does get the most traffic of those in her list. I think it is obvious that it is the name. The place is full of newbs… well, a high percentage at least. I think they find it easily in search. Continue reading

Second Life Bits and Bites… 2019 w11

Yes… bites.

Skin Fair 2019 is here.

Skin Fair runs to Marth 24. Visit here: Visit the North Sim and Visit the South Sim.

Word is it is busy and hard to get into. Yeah, expected. Remember. Peak SL usage is between 2 and 3 PM SLT (PDT). Minimum use is 12 hours later… 2 to 3 AM. I didn’t have a problem getting in. I did get disconnected trying to walk across the region boundary. My second day visiting the regions were working better. But I was chicken to walk across.

The regions are laggy, 35+ avatars in each of the two regions. The sim performance is decent stats-wise, but walking is a pain. I land, move out of the way and then flycam through the event. Continue reading

Second Life News 2019 w11

Something messed up in the blog. Seems the site got a roll back. Week 10 disappeared… not sure how long it was even up. Oh well…

So, I have reposted week 10 news in the previous article.

Servers

No server Deploy post as of Tuesday morning. There is a 16-hour old post this morning in last week’s that says no rolls this week… So, I guess no rolls.

OH… WAIT… The post appeared just after noon.

Main channel no roll. Remains on #19.01.25.523656.

Blue Steel and Le Tigre roll to version #19.03.07.525089. The changes are Internal Fixes (shocker) and fixes to EEP.

Magnum gets version #19.01.25.523656. Just Internal Fixes.

I am seeing a few more people post about being logged off at 15 to 20 minutes. Some European people are dealing with huge packet loss. Russians are protesting Putin’s isolating the Russian Internet net from the rest of the world. Many thought it impossible. But China has done it, Google is helping. So, it looks like Putin will do it.

There is an ongoing thing with region owners notice less available script time. An investigation is on the Lindens to do list after EEP rolls out. Continue reading

Second Life News 2019 w10

This is a repost. It seems to have poofed shortly after I first posted it.

We have some news… March 1 was the Third-Party Dev meeting. It ran 57 minutes… but, there was

Servers

Problems continue on the server-front. No updates on the main or RC channels. These problems are holding up viewer releases. EAM, EEP, and BoM are all waiting for server-backend stuff to update.

Any region that has run longer than 10 days will get a restart.

The server update that kills inventory UDP fetching is also held up until the server problems are solved. Actually, lots of stuff is delayed as people are pulled to work on the servers. Continue reading

Second Life: Is VR Likely?

VR for Second Life™? Hamlet just wrote about SL and VR. See Is Second Life Too Technically Limited To Create A VR Version For It?

One of the people that came to SL from Myst Online, Adeon Writer, is quoted and has opined in the article’s comments about what is technically possible.

i9-9900k – October 2018

Like most things, anything is possible. But that doesn’t say anything about whether it is likely or reasonable. Both likely and reasonable are generally matters of opinion and the answers are a matter of who you ask. And in matters of opinion, there is generally no final or definitive answer. So, it is a matter of understanding another’s viewpoint and reasons for their opinion.

So, will we have VR or can we have VR? The will and can questions have very different answers… probably. We know we can have VR because it has already been done. So, that answer is out of the realm of opinion. The Lab made a VR viewer for SL years back. Two more VR viewers have been made since then. One shortly after the Lab discontinued their VR viewer. Another just recently. So, can? Yes. As a fact, it has been done. Continue reading

Second Life News 2019 w09

Servers

Updates were planned. A problem was discovered last minute and neither the main or RC channels updated. Simon Linden explained at the Server-Scripting UG Tuesday. The Deploys post now reflects that change of plans.

[2019/02/26 12:02]  Simon Linden: Let’s see … well, for server news, our update this morning got cancelled by another last-minute problem we discovered

[2019/02/26 12:03]  Simon Linden: That stops tomorrows updates as well, but I believe we’re planning on doing restarts of all the regions on the RC channels

[2019/02/26 12:03]  Simon Linden: … and I’m working with another colleague as we speak helping to sort that issue out

[2019/02/26 12:04]  Simon Linden: That’s my excitement for the week, so the table is open for topics or discussion

One of the things to happen with the planned update was a channel with the UDP API disabled. This would test viewers to see if they were in some way still dependent on the UDP API. Those developing viewers or if you want to test can visit Mesh Sandbox 3 in Aditi. It has the planned update running.

You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry. Don't worry.

You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry. Don’t worry.

Some experimenting with whether or not their viewer is UDP dependent or not have seen some odd behavior. Whirly Fizzle did some testing and reports here.

It seems you inventory will load, the list. But you cannot fetch any of the assets.

So, Firestorm 5.0.7 users have about a week left before that viewer is totally crippled and then soon blocked. Update early. Avoid problems. Continue reading

Second Life Bits – 2019 w09

This is stuff I found interesting as I poked around the Second Life™ blogosphere.

Fantasy Faire 2019 – Yes, it is coming. The theme is “Builders of Hope!” April 18 to May 5. The official, I guess official, website where you can get a taxi, as of 4/18, is Fantasy Faire 2019.

Word is this year’s far will be open 18 days. Previous events lasted 11 days. There will 16 regions. So, lots to explore and time to do it.

For more details and contact points see Caitlin’s blog article Fantasy Faire 2019: Builders of Hope.

Raglan Shire Talent Show – This was a 2018 event. The edited video of the show came out in December 2018. Second Life Newser just published a piece on it, Raglan Shire Talent Show 2018.

I bring it up because it is just the cutest SL thing I’ve seen in some time. So, jump over and watch the 15-minute video. As Newser points out, the video is NOT the whole show. It is, however, about all I can take without going diabetic.

Adult NSFW – Heaven & Hell’s Pleasure – This is a new adult region run by the infamous people of Caroline’s Mansion. The Mansion (NSFW) is merging with Pleasure… (really NSFW) yeah, that is a double what’s it…

You can read the details on Caroline’s website Second Life Adventures (NSFW).

The TL:DR is H&H is a school for those that want to sell their SL Booty. The region looks like a massive adult playground. But it is a part of a region. It seems big because it uses vertical space.

You apparently have to belong to a group to get some doors to open and stuff to work. Some doors have the lockpick thing… click and wait.

I assume this is a mostly German group of people as no one is there during the hours I tend to be on.

Second Life Content Creation UG #08

Interesting meeting.

Simon Linden is busy investigating the problems causing a disruption in service last Saturday. So, no new news on Animash. We do have news on EEP.

CCUG Meeting

All the news is in the first few minutes. The rest is discussion.

You may notice the difference in panning between this video and the previous video. I’m not totally sure it is just this version of Firestorm. For now I suspect the viewer update is the reason for the improvement.
