Boat Racing : OpenSim : 3rdRock Grid : Now Open For Public Testing

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Well we have been keeping this under wraps for a while during the building phase, don't get me wrong, as we are still involved with that process. However the time has come to open this new 3x3 Var Region to the public ( that's the equivalent of 9 standard sized regions in Second Life )  We have free to use sail boats,  catamarans and jet ski's, some free to copy jet ski's and a speed boat too. So if you are looking for something fun to do and you enjoy tooling around a huge lake in a virtual world, stop on by and help us iron out the few remaining bugs.




     You don't have to be a member of 3rd Rock Grid to enjoy the fun, Oh yeah I all most forgot to mention that  our servers have recently been upgraded with the addition of all Solid State Drive's so the place is very responsive. Don't worry if you crash or loose one of the free to use or free to copy vehicles, as that is part of the testing process. Here is the hyper grid jump,

once there you may contact me JayR Cela, or Kered Owl for any assistance you may need, we cant be there 24 hours a day, but you can leave a message, or even your e-mail address to me. ( JayR Cela )

    Looking forward to meeting you.

Dealing With Death In A Virtual World

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Oh boy, I don't even know how to start this post.

Death of an Avatar, or close friend.

It hurts, years of friendship simply coming to and end. Ya may see it coming, or it will strike ya blindside.

I guess ya just accept and deal with it.

My New Sim - 3 Parcels of Very Nice Complimentary Land : 1000 prims each : Are You Migrating From SL or INWZ ?

Hi there
    It's been a while since my last post, I have not forgotten anyone or abandoned Open Sim and the HyperGrid, just a busy RL schedule has kept me hopping, now I'm back, with lots of good stuff to share.

     If you recall, several months ago I had mentioned a new HyperGrid enabled Sim with complimentary land I was about to make available, that deal did not turn out as planned. However thanks to the nice folks over at the The Stitching 3rd Rock Grid Foundation  ( a non profit in Open Sim ) I have finally been able to open 3 choice 1000 prim parcels of land at no charge ( that's 0.00 $ ) for a limited time, and the opening just happens to coincide with the upcoming Rob Stock Music Festival ( an annual  fund raising event for Doctor's Without Borders, that last year  managed to raise $2000.00 US for a very worthy cause. )




                                 
                            All 3 parcels have room enough to build on the surrounding waters.




    I am looking for 3 people, possibly migrating or considering too, from SecondLife, InWorldz or another ( Walled Garden ) grid that enjoy building, landscaping and decorating, and the 1000 prim parcels are just the starting point. 3rdRock, one of the oldest and still existing Open Sim Grid's out there, has seen it's up's and down's over the years, however it is currently in a state of  unprecedented reliability, not a lot of bell's and whistles, or massive amounts of prim's per region, just rock solid stability.

    Currently looking for people to help with the redevelopment of 16 core regions. This is truly a wonderful opportunity for the right person(s). not only will you have free complementary land to develop for yourself on my own personal sim,  you may also be able to share your creative talents redeveloping up to 16 of the core grid regions.





















    The sim has it's own free-shop, and just about everything on the region is Full Perms.


    With this weekend being the 9th annual Rob Stock Event you will also be able to meet not only the Core 3rdRock Grid Team, along with the Stiching 3rdRock Grid Foundation members, but a lot of other nice people as well.


    We have a great line up of very talented people in store for your listening pleasure.






















    If you would like to stop for a visit and discuss taking up residence on 3rd Rock Grid with me, please feel free to do so. the hyper grid jump is listed below.

Microsoft One Drive Users Take Notice : Your free storage is about to be slashed !

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Although not directly related to Open Sim, a number of people I know of regularly use either MS One Drive or Google Drive to preserve or upload and share their OS picture's and other projects and or portions of their work. Well as of this coming Monday Feb.1 2016 your free 15GB of free storage on One Drive will be slashed from 15 to 5GB if you don't act quickly.



    You can read more about it from this link :

Wasted Money in RL

This post has nothing to do with Virtual Worlds, sorry about that.

Think about this for a minute or so, the amount of $$ spent on the  United States Politicians electoral process.

    This absurd  and ridiculous amount of money wasted is a disgrace to anyone with an ounce of intelligence.

OpenSim : HyperGrid : This My Grid is Better Than Yours Stuff Needs To Stop

By Avatar JayR Cela

      Another reason I do not promote any grids on this blog.  It is Open Sim, I not about to mention any grids by name, but let's face it is all open source, you do what you can,when you can to make things better.

     This Tit for Tat arguing about who did what and how great your grid or marketplace is compared to someone else's is ridiculous, and uncalled for.

OpenSim : HyperGrid : Complementary ( free ) Land : My plans Delayed

By Avatar JayR Cela

    A few weeks back I did a post promoting a new sim under development on an undisclosed OS/HG Grid. Sadly that deal fell thru to some of the usual disagreements  that can accompany joint ventures.

    Never fail I have made new arrangements , my original Idea is back on track, just the Sim Gran Opening date has been moved back about 30 days.

Stay tuned for some pictures and further details.

OpenSim : HyperGrid : Alchemy Viewer : Newest Release : Diving Back Into Debug Settings is a Good Thing :part 1

By Avatar JayR Cela

     Hey look, the newest Alchemy Viewer ( 3.8.5.36974 ) , ROCK's Big Time in a lot of area's, however it has a ton of ruff edges. Last night I took a trip back in time to the Debug Settings menu and tried my hand at tweaking the thing out, I telling ya right now it was a blast !!!

    The Camera Controls are superb with a level of fine tuning abilities, harkening back to the Kristen Viewer V1 series.

    I had so much fun, and once I actually figure out exactly what I did, I will fill ya in.

     So in the mean time I am asking anyone reading this old rag of a blog to go to

                                         https://alchemyviewer.org/   

     Download the viewer, play around with it, and most importantly JOIN the Alchemy Viewer Group, file bug report issues, make suggestions, and get involved.

    This is truly a Diamond in the Ruff.
