OpenSim : HyperGrid : Complementary Land : How Much Is Enough ?

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok lets get down to the nitty gritty here.

     You got a sim or perhaps a grid, and you have free  (  complementary  ) land intended for new residents, many of them attempting a migration from Second Life.

     So here is the problem or issue, call it what ever you like, but the fact remains that most of the new folks don't have a clue about numerous things oldtimers take for granted.

     When ya get people  taking the opportunity to develop a relatively small parcel of land, and they succeed  in making the place look nice, then by all means you should offer them a larger parcel of land / now before any one get's harping on me --- I talking Complementary  Land

    You may be surprised by the number of SecondLife people   coming here to OS/HG

     Here's the deal if you have land for people to donate then do it // 440 prims  is a good starting point.

OpenSim : HyperGrid : Complimentary ( Free ) Land : Use it or Loose It

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ya know what ? As an acting estate manager on several OS grids, I am getting sick and tired of people that claim a parcel of complementary land, and then they never return, screw em ! I throw them out and make room for new people that actually will contribute to the community.

Older Computers and OpenSim / HyperGrid : Dump Windows and Install Linux

By Avatar JayR Cela

     Here I go again : to all the folks out there wasting their money on things like Bright Canopy the streaming service for virtual worlds, wake up please. The extra $15 or so a month you are spending can easily be saved, and over the course of a year you will have $180 to spend on a new mini computer by HP, Dell, Acer, evan Intel and many others are readily available, and the prices continue to decrease every month.  For those concerned about the integrated graphics on these low priced box's, both Intel and AMD have made fantastic advances in recent months with the graphics capabilities, and they come with Windows 10

    In the mean time your old computer can easily be retro-fitted with Linux, Ubuntu or one of its derivatives are your safest bet. UbuntuStudio is a fantastic choice, it has everything you can possibly want or need to accomplish most anything conceivable within OpenSim / HyperGrid.

OpenSim : Chat Logs : Conflicting Standards or Lack There Of

By Avatar JayR Cela

     Look I don't go spouting off with some half baked crank bull-crap nonsense gossip and such like a number of OS/HG folk's. I only speak when I feel something is important.

     Currently there seems to be no set standard for storing and being able to read your chat log's from one TPV Viewer to another, they all seem to store the chat log file into different locations using incompatible formats.
     In other words, my Singularity chat log file's cannot be read by FireStorm or other viewers, and the same holds true in reverse. FireStorm cannot read Singularity chat log files, nor Kokua, or Alchemy or CoolVL.

     So this is an issue that needs to be addressed.

     I as a land manager depend upon the ability to be able to accurately read my past conversations with various people, often requiring me to log in in with a different viewer, simply because the person I am dealing with does not use the same one that I use, and they require assistance that mandates I be using the same viewer as they are in order to be able to explain things to them correctly.

    I am very excited about the Alchemy Viewer, currently it's kinda a work in progress, however as much as I dislike the V3 platform,  I would encourage everyone within the OpenSim community to get involved with both the Alchemy and Singularity viewer team's.

HyperGrid : OpenSim : An OpenSim-centric Viewer : Finally ! : The Alchemy Viewer

By Avatar JayR Cela

    I have been calling out for this for a while now, and finally someone is actually doing it. I'm talking about a a Third Party Viewer that is being designed with OpenSim in mind first and foremost, and not SecondLife. I am taking a quote from their web page / I hope Cinders does not mind :_)

( " With this release of Alchemy, we bring you full OpenSimulator support written from the ground up and are proud to say we will support OpenSim as a first class platform on par with our Second Life support. Much of the past month has been spent in communication with the OpenSimulator team not only to bring our viewer up to speed and inline with their platform, but to help squash compatibility bugs with their protocol, and it doesn't stop there. Our goal is to be the forerunner for new features and protocol helping OpenSim go places it hasn't be able to go before having been burdened by rigid viewer design and bound to the Second Life protocol by the viewer. We are committed to breaking new ground with OpenSim. That said, this is the first release of a brand new OpenSim implementation, so there's bound to be bugs. Remember what I said about about bug reports? Send them in! We love it." )

    Amen !! to that, it's an extremely bold statement of commitment to the OpenSim community, and I will urge you to please take the time to check it out and file bug report's and get involved if you can.

    A new branch of the open source SL viewer being designed from the ground up for OpenSim is something I have been calling for for a while now. My experiences with it so far have been mixed, admittedly I confess to only having a total 15 or 20 minutes logged so I can not really express any sort of feelings one way or another yet. There is one feature I think every one has been waiting for since forever ( lol ) the ability to adjust you VRam beyond the 512mb limit, Yay! :_)))

HyperGrid ~ OpenSim : Offering Friendship, and common sense

By Avatar JayR Cela

    I'm going to make this short and brief as possible....

    Hypergrid jumping is a total trip, and meeting all sorts of wonderful, creative individual pioneers in this ever expanding MultiVerse is sometimes beyond my comprehension.

     However, when a person just offers me friendship....
     without a proper introduction.....
     or at least taking the time to say hello first....

I find that to be quite rude....
I'm sorry if I have offended anyone.......

      But if you do not have the common courtesy, to introduce yourself, or  perchance we both  happen to be attending a Virtual World meeting of some sort's.

     Then more and likely i will ignore the offer.

P.S. / by the way I just added a link to the Alchemy viewer the other day / its pretty kool / but it has the C.H.U.I Chat / IM interface :(

OpenSim : Why You Don't want to use FireStorm

By Avatar JayR Cela

    FireStorm has grown to be the most bloated piece of work , I have ever seen, way to much SL specific trash no one in Open Sim needs.

     Do your self a favor and use the Singularity Viewer, it's mile's ahead faster in regards to FPS, easy to navigate, and all around it just proves what an utter failure the entire, supposed upgrade  of V2 from Mark Kingdom, that this idiot gave us, was such a mind boggling mishap.

OpenSim / Poison Viewers

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok this is just my opinion.

    The Current viewers available for Open Sim contain a lot of extra crap specifically for  SecondLife.

     Give me a break, SL is DEAD !!!!

      Go nowhere platform.

I have all this crud in the new FireStorm Viewer I don't need, just because it is required for SL, I am sick and tired of this. :(

Virtual Worlds : Windows 10 ~or~ Linux ?

By Avatar JayR Cela

     OK all you gear heads out there, I have been running Windows 10 Insider since day 1.

     It is a n awesome OS, once you turn off all the privacy setting crap it really rocks.

     However if you don't want all this junk shoveled down your throat, just install LINUX

JayR Cela :_)

New Stream Service For SecondLife / Who Give's a Crap ?

OK I am in a pessimistic mood today,

     In regards to the new fangled speed up your SL experience ploy, let me ask you this question ?

You spend an extra 10$ or so a month, to have a faster experience in the dying Virtual World SecondLife, because your computer is to old, however if you save the extra 10$ or so a month over  the course of a year, more and likely you can pick up one of the numerous MINI Computers from HP, IBM, Asus.......

    For about 150$ to 200$ U.S.

     Evan with the Intel graphics built in or the AMD APU's / these things rock Bigg Time.

So this pay me extra $$$ to get a faster virtual world experience is a complete waste of your time and money.

    Hold on a sec I gonna put on my Tin Foil Hat. Give me a break / this is just a laughable as SLGO
