  61. sloopy cooder says:

    Any chance LL will address the insane lag issues that cropped up in the past week? Places that used to have nearly no lag now have frame rates of 0.5 to 1. Teleporting is still a crapshoot with only about a 75% success rate. Still have a hell of a time dropping items on any other item (like a floor) – the only time it’s fairly reliable is dropping it on bare ground.

    Come on guys, let’s work on the real problems… Age verification won’t help if you can’t teleport, build, and are stuck in a world of molassas.

  62. Tateru Nino says:

    It’s 2008 in Melbourne, Australia. Too hot, but we’re celebrating quietly.

  76. Tillie Ariantho says:

    Didnt know what the guy above meant, but right now I got disconnected by TPing… again, I thought that was fixed (???) and then after logging in have FPS of like 0.1 or something, even on my home sim with no one in there except me. Textures loading quite slow.

    Seems SL died 2007. Maybe there is a rebirth 2008. I hope so.

    Happy New Year to all around the World ….

    In my first year in SL I’ve enjoyed ~translated~ conversations with ppl from all over the world. I’ve learned of others customs, traditions, and how our “slang”, even everyday words and expressions, can be rather uninformative despite our best efforts. What a great experience !!!! Where else can you do that !?!

    Ahhh…2007! I remember it well. Then came the Gambling Ban, Age Verification, Morals Police…

    2008 will be known as the “Year of the Burqa” in SecondLife as LL attempts to kiss up to every bluenose on the planet.

    Predicted 2008 Headlines:
    1. Linden Labs announces that all skins in SL must have underwear painted on them. Furthermore the attachment point at the crotch will be eliminated, obstentiously to prevent attachment from gathering there during TPs.
    2. Linden Labs announces today that the Teen Grid will be integrated into the adult grid. Robin announced that this will save server space and “the kids were coming here anyway because the teen grid is quite frankly dull.”
    3. The TOS has been amended to allow for permanently banning any resident who sits on a SexGen bed while wearing a furry avatar. This was done to prevent children from seeing animals copulating in any position other then dog style.
    4. Torley Linden produces a wildly popular video showing how to use a CopyBot. For reasons no one can explain mall sales decline precipitously.

    Happy New Year!

  123. Happy New Years to you all SL members….may 2008 be even better!

  124. A Happy & Prosperious New Year to ALL from the Ginsberg ARTS Center 😉

    Lets cut out the gratuitous remarks and get down to it! SL management needs to get real and get real at light speed. The most sophisticated of us will move to the next best thing immediately! Lag is horrific right now by standard of people who know what they are doing. We can recreate ourselves anywhere never forget that SL. Only the newton people will remain.
