| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|As always, this is public, it'll go on the wiki

|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:36] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Assuming I can figure that out. :-)
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:37] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Today I thought it'd be cool to talk about the heterogeneous grid
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:37] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Hi Nounouch, welcome to zero's office hours, wihch I'm guest-hosting
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:37] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Heterogenous? In which way?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:38] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|(Hello. ;) )
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:38] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Heterogeneous in terms of what version of software the sim hosts are running
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:38] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|You've already got three classes of sims.. and several bits of kit that's special, like the asset servers. OOOH.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:38] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Post liberacion!
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:39] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|As in being able to stop only part of the grid for a rolling maintenance ?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:39] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Post-liberaction, indeed
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:39] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|As in being able to put new code up on single sims and let real folks pound on it!
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:39] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Faster maintenance is a goal
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:39] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Testing beta code in the main grid is another!
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:40] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|It's funny how much more useful the main grid is
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:40] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I would so love that.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:40] 
 
| Squirrel Wood:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|size matters in this case I'd say
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:40] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|It has always been true that the users are the best testers.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:41] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|It's hard to reproduce real usage on a test grid.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:41] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Access, too. I try, now, to leave copies of key work in asset at all times so I can rez them on sandboxes in beta, and test
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:41] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|But.. It would be much nicer to not have the 2-3 week window when I can't get new code into the beta grid
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:41] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I think since SL is promarily a communication medium, it's hard to get people to leave aside their main second life to do some testing.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|That's true too.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Asset lag is killer too.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I end up re-doing bug fixes to code to artifacts in the beta me.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|My avatar isn't as pretty in the beta
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Cut scripts from grid copy with fix.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Past to beta copy
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:42] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Ick
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Would be nice if we could send current objects to the beta grid for certain testing.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I wonder, would you all be more interested in the beta if the asset lag were shorter?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Yes
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Helps a little.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I guess my question is, how much shorter?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Yesterday
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:43] 
 
| colspan="2"|''Wyn Galbraith is joking.''
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:44] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Well. zero would be idea. Realistically... once or twice a week (and on a schedule) would be helpful.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:44] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I also.. make a point to go log on and see what state my Ave is in the beta grid after each snapshot
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:44] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I don't know how much effort it takes to do a sync -- presumably a lot
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:44] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|A "send to Beta" warping object ?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:45] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Something like that Nounouch.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:45] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I use the beta for demos when main is down.. and once or twice.. when I didn't do that.. was bemused that the snapshot had clearly been taken late at night, with the Ave not in work clothing.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:46] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|That can be embarassing.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:46] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|One thing about the het grid is that as simulator versions advance, they might want a newer viewer version as well
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:47] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|For features like sculpties, for example
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:47] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|The new viewer wouldn't be *required*, but you probably would want it
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:47] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|So have a separate viewer for the Beta grid?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Squirrel Wood:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Mayhaps another series of FirstLook viewers?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| colspan="2"|''Khamon Fate claps for first look''
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|First Look is awesome
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|First look.. is a really good strategy
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|FirstLook was great, yup. But we are talking of collapsing 5-6 different Firstlooks at once
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Optional.. is not so good.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:48] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Only then you're not testing with the exisiting viewer, so how would viewer related issues be tested then.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:49] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I had to back off the optional update.. which is only easy becasue I'm very careful to keep the current install at all times
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:49] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Which have you guys considered opening an Icehouse chat group that we could join and y'all could use to bounce ideas off us?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:49] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Finally got the grpahics drivers fixed.. so that I can run the optional. But.. it is painful, when the update takes your machine straight to lockup
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:49] 
 
| colspan="2"|''Wyn Galbraith is all out of groups''
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Khamon: you mean like office hours?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| colspan="2"|''Zha Ewry is as well''
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|25 groups. Heh.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Yeah but a group where we could chat about this stuff anytime
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Thoughts, too. We'd be glad to discuss ideas you have, at random
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:50] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Zha are you linux-based?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|XP
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I mean I could drop some educational ones, I've done almost all the free classes available for the those groups I'm a part of, but would hate to.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Or do you eat AIX for breakfast ha ha ha
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|The linux version was fine. But.. we have silly corporate apps which (sighs) like XP
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I'd drop a group to be a sounding board and idea pusher for Icehouse
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I think the problem with an always-running group chat would be that I'd rarely get any work done!
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|You'd have to control your growth
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:51] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I could drop a scripting group.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:52] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I mean chat
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:52] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Are you non-invasive bamboo?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:52] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Which is contained in a pot, I think that's the cure for invasive bamboo, correct ;)
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:52] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Alas.. my laptop (and main machine) is XP, and ATI.. So.. drivers are tricky. We *do* have a new family which is nvidia based... just out. I *so* badly want one of those
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:52] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|A "let's drop an idea and wait return" schema is what I use to call a Wiki or a board. Aka Web stuff
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:53] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Um, I heard that the species of plant that is sold as "lucky bamboo" is not a bamboo, it's a geranium or somthing
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:53] 
 
| colspan="2"|''Wyn Galbraith is XP, Dual Core and unsupported graphic chip set.''

| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|On a Tablet PC.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:53] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Well, a number of us, who are here a lot... chat about what Zero talks about.. between meetings. Having a formal group
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:53] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Geraniums taste funny to me.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:53] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|would be nice. Lindens could dump notices and proposals at the group.. and we'd be able to discuss it at random
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Maybe I'm thinking more like a forum.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|You guys should probably ask Zero when he gets back -- I hardly feel qualified to discourse, since this is, after all, my first office hour!
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|(that I've run)
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|We'll tell anyone anything :-)
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|:-)
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Back to het grid:
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:55] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Speaking of which.. How is zero, and his expected arrival?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:56] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|If there's sculpties in one sim, and some other new viewer-sim feature in a neighboring sim, what then? Have to switch viewer versions when you regious cross?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:56] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|You're right it's Dracaena sanderana. Which is fake bamboo.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:56] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Dynamic loading sections of client
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:56] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Fake Bamboo ha ha ha
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:56] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Gah. Don't make it worse.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Just use the front level browser..
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Hopefully.. you keep things forward compatible most of the time
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Whole sections such as the menu bar, and when the client is logged in?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Aka Quarl toy with the sculpty code, updating the three versions, rebooting the zone, people reconnect, DL needed code and load it ?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Aren't we sposed to talk about a browser plugin?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:57] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Oh no that's Benjamin at 10
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:58] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Initially at least, we don't have dynamically-loading viewers that are loaded piecemeal
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:58] 
 
| Khamon Fate:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|I wonder how optional rendering sculpties is gonna be.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:59] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|In any case, any beta branch tends to change a vast swath of code, so you'd be reloading everything.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [7:59] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Who do you expect it to work ? A viewer per server familly ? A sculpty-on-work one, a browser-on-work-one, a whatever-on-work one ?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [7:59] 
 
| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Given that one could build an open source client that doesn't render whole swaths of the world.. I'd think totally optional at some leval Khamon.
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [8:00] 
 
| Nounouch Hapmouche:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Or a single client being updated several times a day ?

| Zha Ewry:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|How often would you imagine deploying new code to sims, Which?
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#FFFFFF;"
 
| [8:00] 
 
| Which Linden:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Client updates should always be optional after liberacion
 
|- style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#F0F0F0;"
 
| [8:00] 
 
| Wyn Galbraith:
 
| style="white-space:normal;"|Jarod.
