Corrections made 8/9

The main channel was updated with version # this morning, Tuesday. Last week the main channel was running version # Both of these are listed as having “internal changes”. Geek-speak for changing data reporting, debugging, and performance information… usually.

Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum were supposed to update to # tomorrow, Wednesday. But, Simon tells us that isn’t going to happen. There probably won’t be a restart as they restarted with last week’s update. The Lindens try to restart regions once every two-weeks even if there is no planned update.

No big problem, but enough of one the Lindens decided to hold the RC update back. It had to do with regions names not being applied correctly in the restart, so they never appeared to come online.

The Deploys thread is dying. There is very little discussion or information to be gleaned from reading the posts. They are basically a day, time, and link to release notes. So, I suspect fewer people are reading the posts. I expect the posts to go away at some point. Continue reading

Second Life – Having Problems?

Yes. You aren’t alone. The Lab is aware people are having attachment issues… instead of psychologists, they are using computer tech’s to find the problem. So, we will likely see a fix soon. No years of counseling…

Seems avatar-attachments are not attaching. In a world where genitals are an attachment, this problem could create huge gender identity issues…

Also, some scripted items are not working.

My first login about 8:40 AM SLT from California failed. I made it in with the Alex Ivy RC and then crashed. Five minutes later I successfully logged in with the same viewer. All my parts rendered. So, no gender ID crises for me.

Some think this is related to Grid maintenance performed yesterday. I don’t know. Possible. Follow Grid Status to see when they have the issue resolved.

PS: And they are having trouble with the web site too…

My main channel region did not restart today. No roll was planned. The main channel continues to run on version #

Blue Steel and Le Tigre and Magnum are scheduled to update to version # this Wednesday (7/26). It is listed as having ‘Internal Changes’.


The main viewer is version No change.

I’m running version Second Life Release (64bit) as my main LL Viewer.

Second Life Alex Ivy Viewer version – This is the version I got because I elected to run RC versions. This is the 64-bit Alex Ivy. The release notes now list 2 or 3 dozen fixes and improvements. The previous version was

Second Life Maintenance Viewer version – This one has updated since last week’s

There was a restart this Tuesday morning. My region restarted about 3 AM SLT. The Grid Status report shows restarts running from 3 AM to 9:19 AM.

The main grid channel is running # This change is the Operating System update for the servers. The Lindens say there are no changes to the simulator software in this update. It has taken some work to get the simulators working with this update. The only problem I know about is the broken song boards. It is to do with how HTTP requests are formatted.

So, most of us won’t be dealing with the change. Continue reading

The server roll this morning was canceled last minute. I think it was the Package on Magnum intended to roll out. The fix was to reduce problems with the system losing connection with the SL back end. But, something in the update was overloading the SL back end. So… next week… maybe.

The Lindens are unsure what they are going to do for Wednesday’s usual RC updates. The usual deploys thread is mostly useless.

From the Server-Scripting meeting we learn the Lindens are trying to get the package repaired and rolled to an RC channel tomorrow, Wednesday.

Today is Simon Linden’s 10th Rez Day!

BUG-9666BUG-100487 – These were brought up in the SS UG meeting asking for new features and data.


The main viewer remains No change.

Second Life Alex Ivy Viewer version – No change.

Second Life Maintenance Viewer version – No change.

Second Life Voice Viewer version – No change.

Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer version – No change.

There is work ongoing in the viewer-world. Expect to see a flurry of changes soon.

Second Life – Third-Party Dev’s UG Meeting 2017 w27

Very short meeting, 20± minutes. Nothing new. Just status updates.

The first subject was the JIRA spamming. For now, the JIRA is locked down, no comments. There is no idea how long it will take to build a spam block.


The Alex Ivy viewer is out as the main viewer. It will update soon as a couple of problems were found. The Lindens are working on the launcher that figures out if it should load the 32 or 64-bit version of the viewer. They are also adding a setting to allow the user to override the automatic detection and force install of one or the other. Continue reading

The main channel continues to run # But, they say there was a ‘bi-weekly’ restart. According to my ‘restart monitor’ in-world, the main channel region I live in was restarted 7/4 @ 08:05. So, they did. I think that is unusual for a holiday.

Blue Steel and Le Tigre continue to run # There were no restarts.

Magnum was restarted and now runs # This has the fix for the DJ song boards that stopped working. This is primarily an Operating System update.  Continue reading
