  • [13:09 SLT] Arawn Spitteler shudders to think what Here would look like, without Tacks

  • [13:10 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles any chanse i could get that avatar :D
  • [13:10 SLT] xstorm Radek: *GIGGLES* :)Jeremy Linden 21:02, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
  • [13:10 SLT] Youri Ashton: oh, then i might have a great addition for your island Torley!
  • [13:10 SLT] Youri Ashton: euhm.. lemme find it
  • [13:10 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:10 SLT] Torley Linden: current avatar i have is by Meandyou Akina
  • [13:10 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: hehe
  • [13:10 SLT] xstorm Radek: the raining pianos
  • [13:10 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Where can I get the Jello avatar?
  • [13:10 SLT] xstorm Radek: the music box ?
  • [13:10 SLT] Marianne McCann: Jello is by Flea Bussy
  • [13:10 SLT] Torley Linden: how is everyone finding Second Life 1.23 so far? anyone not using it?
  • [13:11 SLT] Marianne McCann: I'm not using it
  • [13:11 SLT] Youri Ashton: ow, you still can 'find' it as well if you prefer
  • [13:11 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i have one bug i can notice
  • [13:11 SLT] xstorm Radek: the lost ailen radio caller ?
  • [13:11 SLT] Youri Ashton: its on the Hellen Keller day sims
  • [13:11 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Avaria, I got Jello for L$10
  • [13:11 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: closing a search window leaves an empty frame
  • [13:11 SLT] Torley Linden: Mari, any particular reason why?
  • [13:11 SLT] Marianne McCann: I used the RC for it, but I really did not care for some of the menu changes
  • [13:11 SLT] Torley Linden: hmmm Asuka i haven't seen that yet
  • [13:11 SLT] Torley Linden: Mari, like the pie menu rearrangements? or others?
  • [13:11 SLT] Youri Ashton: basic idea is to use Max the dog to find the clues and eventually th prize (its a pandabear)
  • [13:12 SLT] Marianne McCann: yup. The Pie, mainly.
  • [13:12 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i think its due to lag
  • [13:12 SLT] Youri Ashton: there ya go!
  • [13:12 SLT] Marianne McCann: I felt some of those changes were unnecessary and a bit unintuitive
  • [13:12 SLT] Marianne McCann: So... I'll stick with 1.22.11 til I gotta upgrade
  • [13:12 SLT] Youri Ashton: Jeremy, or anyone else, want a copy of this bear as well?
  • [13:12 SLT] WidgetHUD v1.2 (Mono): Youri Ashton has pinged you.
  • [13:12 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Bear?
  • [13:12 SLT] Marianne McCann: Bear?
  • [13:12 SLT] Torley Linden: i kept going into Appearance mode when i meant to Detach. it'll take me awhile to get used to that. on the upside it's easier to report abuse on someone from pie menu now. but longer-term, it's more likely we rethink if we really need a pie menu. so this is what happens in t he interim.
  • [13:12 SLT] Torley Linden: thanks Youri
  • [13:12 SLT] Torley Linden: *nods to Mari*
  • [13:13 SLT] Youri Ashton: no problem!
  • [13:13 SLT] xstorm Radek: i feel safer with Snowglobe 1.0.2 (2451) Jun 19 2009 19:29:16 (Snowglobe Release)
  • [13:13 SLT] Jeremy Linden: I think the Appearance change in the pie menu was reverted. I kept going into Appearance when I meant to edit an attachment.
  • [13:13 SLT] Marianne McCann: I'm fine with a pie. I also don't mind the idea of a contextual as seen in the early beta for viewer 2009.
  • [13:13 SLT] Youri Ashton: lol, trying to attach it so i can show
  • [13:13 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: torley do you have a linden watermellon (bear)
  • [13:13 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: omg THE Torley!!!!
  • [13:13 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I use 1.23 becuase it fixes Space Navigator support on Linux. Other than that it has nothing for me but some more rendering bugs
  • [13:13 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: where?!!!!
  • [13:13 SLT] xstorm Radek: hi Erin
  • [13:13 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: hihi!!!!
  • [13:13 SLT] Marianne McCann: To me, it makes intuitive sense to click on a person or thing and get some sort of menu pop up
  • [13:13 SLT] Torley Linden: hello ErinSelene, i'm currently crushing a couch.
  • [13:14 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles erin i would think u never seen a linden before
  • [13:14 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:14 SLT] Youri Ashton: ther eit is
  • [13:14 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: Torley sent Woveli a bear!
  • [13:14 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: HIIIIIII!!!!!
  • [13:14 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Yes, do not eliminate the popup menu, even if it is not a pie
  • [13:14 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: Me and my alt are big Fans!
  • [13:14 SLT] Torley Linden: aye Mari -- those Viewer 2009 are of course very very rough so a lot could change -- just to set expectations!

  • [13:14 SLT] Torley Linden: that's a classic line, ErinSelene
  • [13:14 SLT] Youri Ashton: if anyone wanta copy, just ask me in IM :) (not really nice to do this all in main) :p
  • [13:14 SLT] Marianne McCann: Oh, of course. I hope many things with it change, to be honest. But most of what I'd love to see tinkered with whatsn't in that early rough one
  • [13:14 SLT] Marianne McCann grins
  • [13:15 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: Mr. Popular

  • [13:17 SLT] Torley Linden: wow there were a lot of iterations for the pie menu changes, Jeremy had me curious about it -- https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-8080

  • [13:18 SLT] Evil Titler: Marianne McCann assigned a new title to Asuka2 Torok. S/he must live with it for a while!

  • [13:18 SLT] Torley Linden imagines Jeremy's eyes glowing into those dev's souls
  • [13:18 SLT] WidgetHUD v1.2 (Mono): Torley Linden has pinged you.

  • [13:19 SLT] Marianne McCann: "Social Networking", ths century's word for "Stalker"
  • [13:19 SLT] Torley Linden: xstorm, i guess it's also hard if the menu layout was poor, and you learn things the "wrong" way... and later improvements are a temporary hindrance due to what you're used to

  • [13:27 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: lol Arawn
  • [13:28 SLT] Evil Titler: Give Asuka2 Torok a new nasty title! You have 60 seconds to assign it with /69!
  • [13:28 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: like the soace navigator but one step further
  • [13:28 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Haptics, what Andrew was hired for, before Lindens existed. They're nicely described i my cousin's book Chimera, but involve overly advanced technology, for SL
  • [13:28 SLT] Evil Titler: xstorm Radek assigned a new title to Asuka2 Torok. S/he must live with it for a while!
  • [13:28 SLT] Youri Ashton: correct link it seems, Torley
  • [13:28 SLT] Youri Ashton: thanks
  • [13:28 SLT] Torley Linden: Andrew is a real rocket scientist
  • [13:28 SLT] Torley Linden: the first i heard of him was some forum posts with that bald-headed kind of Dr. Evil avatar
  • [13:29 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: erm . . . what is the linden stance on bots? especially if they arn't use for camping- if you guys know?
  • [13:29 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles i been called crazy before:D
  • [13:29 SLT] Torley Linden: and i was so impressed by his blend of humor and tech facts
  • [13:29 SLT] Youri Ashton: any specific bots?
  • [13:29 SLT] Torley Linden: ErinSelene, have you looked at the Knowledge Base info for that?
  • [13:29 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: torley u ever been called crazy :D?
  • [13:29 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :P
  • [13:29 SLT] Torley Linden: in short, depends HOW bots are being used and affecting resources?
  • [13:29 SLT] xstorm Radek: *GIGGLES* :)Jeremy Linden 21:02, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
  • [13:29 SLT] Torley Linden: Asuka, many times over. but i'm totally boring to me.
  • [13:30 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: yes it said yopu guys don't mind them the same way other games do but i didn't wann ask my real question if it would upset you
  • [13:30 SLT] Youri Ashton: with a brilliant mind often comes a healthy form of insanity, it's only a good thing he has that Asuka ;)
  • [13:30 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: haha us hyper kids need to stick together
  • [13:30 SLT] Torley Linden: crazy to me is, like, spelunking through a hotel.
  • [13:30 SLT] xstorm Radek: what game ?
  • [13:30 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: add was the best thing to happen to me :D
  • [13:30 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: The day that Torley hasn't been called Crazy, his coffee was late
  • [13:30 SLT] SL6B Kiosk - 10 Prim Lg - Lit: Thank you! Your SL6B info and goodies will be delivered to you soon!
  • [13:30 SLT] Torley Linden: i don't drink coffee, it smells great but upsets my tummy!
  • [13:30 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles im a tea person
  • [13:30 SLT] Youri Ashton: having so much skills and no fun is just causing the person to go insane in the wrong way ;)
  • [13:30 SLT] Frank Curameyer: iced coffee = good
  • [13:31 SLT] Jeremy Linden hearts his Keurig coffee machine.
  • [13:31 SLT] Marianne McCann: Shoot - gotta run. Have fun, all!
  • [13:31 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts = overpriced
  • [13:31 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: many genious were seen as crazy because no one understood them
  • [13:31 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:31 SLT] Frank Curameyer: who buys iced coffee when you can make it lol
  • [13:31 SLT] Youri Ashton: true
  • [13:31 SLT] Marianne McCann: Bye Bye!!
  • [13:31 SLT] Torley Linden: i used to drink Tim Horton's hot chocolate. Tim Horton's is a prime source of canadian coffee
  • [13:31 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: torley is a genious of the metaverse
  • [13:31 SLT] Torley Linden: bye Mari!
  • [13:31 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :)
  • [13:31 SLT] Youri Ashton: bye bye :)
  • [13:31 SLT] Youri Ashton: lagg
  • [13:31 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: he is a bit crazy but we love him for it :D
  • [13:31 SLT] Torley Linden: that would make a fancy title.
  • [13:32 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: makes it easier to relate to him
  • [13:32 SLT] Youri Ashton: true sakura :D
  • [13:32 SLT] xstorm Radek: eeewww officer core turn human
  • [13:32 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: How come Doc group is the only Office Hours with sofas that work?
  • [13:32 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: at least he is purpleish pink
  • [13:32 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: gaga
  • [13:32 SLT] Torley Linden: it's important to have personality... it's fun
  • [13:32 SLT] Youri Ashton: so true :p
  • [13:32 SLT] Torley Linden: Mojito, out of sheer curiosity, when/where is the last broken sofa you encountered?
  • [13:32 SLT] Jeremy Linden: They were picked out and maintained by someone who has extensive experience with Second Life ;-)
  • [13:32 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: thats hot
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Let me see
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Nyx's office hours I think
  • [13:33 SLT] Youri Ashton: not fun if everything has to be black or white, there is still a grey area and a color side to life :p
  • [13:33 SLT] Torley Linden: (sorry i can't reply to IMs, too much happening in the open!)
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: The poses would sometimes not kick in, and you end up sitting backwards, or on the arm of the sofa
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Or at some odd angle
  • [13:33 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: okies torley its a kind of personal question so keep the window open and answer when you get a moment
  • [13:33 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Sounds like someone needs to script in some sit targets.
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Unless you clicks on just the right part
  • [13:33 SLT] Youri Ashton: Nyx has broken sofa's indeed
  • [13:33 SLT] Youri Ashton: no scripted items
  • [13:33 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: yes
  • [13:34 SLT] Youri Ashton: no poseballs either
  • [13:34 SLT] Torley Linden: i had an embarassing situation at Here, one of the deck chairs... the sit target was positioned in such a way that sitting would make you look like your head was in the seat and you were going to get a spanking from behind
  • [13:34 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: And there was another one with similar bad sofas, but I am not sure which it was
  • [13:34 SLT] Youri Ashton: sit on a prim its basicly the idea, only problem is, it keeps failing
  • [13:34 SLT] Jeremy Linden makes a note to bother Nyx about his sofas when he goes to Boston tomorrow.
  • [13:34 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: They looked the same - grey things
  • [13:34 SLT] Torley Linden: Asuka, oh, i was never diagnosed by ADD
  • [13:34 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: oooh is it still there lol
  • [13:34 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: lol
  • [13:34 SLT] Torley Linden: *with
  • [13:34 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: what was it u have then?
  • [13:34 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: cant remember :D
  • [13:34 SLT] Torley Linden: i get bored easily but can focus on things for long periods of time if they fascinate me
  • [13:35 SLT] Youri Ashton: lol, we tried the same thing jeremy, but he doesnt listen to us :p
  • [13:35 SLT] WidgetHUD v1.2 (Mono): Youri Ashton has pinged you.
  • [13:35 SLT] Torley Linden: hahahaha
  • [13:35 SLT] Youri Ashton: well... does listen, just no action :p
  • [13:35 SLT] Torley Linden: this sounds like a detective mystery, Case of the Bad Sofas
  • [13:35 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i remember u doing a talk on add or autism or something a while back
  • [13:35 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Might have been Q Linden's sofas. But dont hold me to that
  • [13:35 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Heh! Nyx just replied to me that he's open to donations of better sofas :-P
  • [13:35 SLT] Torley Linden: oh it was asperger syndrome (form of autism), yes Asuka, i gladly speak publicly about this as Second Life is a healing and wonderful creative space for those with autism!
  • [13:35 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Oh, that's what's called ADHD, when the Teacher gets annoyed. The best cure was recommended by Doctor Maxwell, and involves a little silver hammer.
  • [13:35 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D yea that i have also and its a gift and a curse
  • [13:36 SLT] guns whispers: Buy a copy and rez from your inventory and attach to your right hand to use.
  • [13:36 SLT] Torley Linden: so i first knew about it about a decade ago, far before i ever heard of Second Life. the first SL incident i heard of asperger's was from Pathfinder Lindenr.
  • [13:36 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: laag
  • [13:36 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Autism is more a spectrum, than a disorder; I think Diagnosis might be the basic Disorder
  • [13:36 SLT] Torley Linden: this was before he was hired by Linden Lab so i knew him on his alt, and he was very forward and very nice! and i was like "wow, cool guy."
  • [13:37 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: heh i tried to apply to work in the uk office for linden labs but didnt get a reply email
  • [13:37 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: 2 years ago :S
  • [13:37 SLT] Torley Linden: anyway, Pathfinder introduced me to the Dreams community and other people in SL who were using it for healing and therapeutic purposes for varying medical conditions.
  • [13:37 SLT] Youri Ashton: I have a form of autism as well, no tests have been done to know what it is, but according to the doctor it might be PPD-NOS
  • [13:37 SLT] Torley Linden: the human brain is still very much a mystery.
  • [13:37 SLT] Youri Ashton: true
  • [13:38 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i like sl because it removes most of the factors that aspegers makes difficult
  • [13:38 SLT] xstorm Radek: cHuman brain is a faty computer
  • [13:38 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: in real life
  • [13:38 SLT] Evil Titler: Give Asuka2 Torok a new nasty title! You have 60 seconds to assign it with /69!
  • [13:38 SLT] Youri Ashton: and the 10% we use of it, it will probably be many years before we even get close to know the entire brain
  • [13:38 SLT] Evil Titler: Arawn Spitteler assigned a new title to Asuka2 Torok. S/he must live with it for a while!
  • [13:38 SLT] Frank Curameyer: the 10% thing is a myth
  • [13:38 SLT] Torley Linden: and by then we may have telekinetic powers! j/k ... sort of :)
  • [13:38 SLT] Youri Ashton: true Asuka, same idea I had.
  • [13:38 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles that would be fun torley
  • [13:38 SLT] Torley Linden: Officer, you remind me of the Residents. the performance artists.
  • [13:38 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: if someone pisses me off il steal there drink
  • [13:38 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:39 SLT] Youri Ashton: problem however is that people use SL as well as a excuse to forget that there are real people behind each avitar
  • [13:39 SLT] Youri Ashton: if you get my drift
  • [13:39 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Somehow I think if I had telekinetic powers my subconscious would have a field day with them.
  • [13:39 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: well alot of them arnt real people but bots
  • [13:39 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: but that will change hopefully
  • [13:39 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: There aren't real people behgind any avatars, but only imaginary people.
  • [13:39 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Watch "Forbidden Planet".
  • [13:39 SLT] Officer Core: Torley, I'd need a topHat :P
  • [13:39 SLT] Torley Linden: :D good point
  • [13:40 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: does officer work here?
  • [13:40 SLT] Torley Linden: more people are becoming familiar with virtual worlds like Second Life.
  • [13:40 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Speaking of specialized names, how about all bots be required to have a last name of "Bot"?
  • [13:40 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: he is here like all the time
  • [13:40 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:40 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: the world is created by peoples minds too
  • [13:40 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: but Wilveli is my bot
  • [13:40 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: and she won't rez
  • [13:40 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Or, as in Isaac Asimov, "R Daneel Olivaw"
  • [13:40 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: wolveli*
  • [13:40 SLT] Torley Linden: i like the Foundation and Robot stories!
  • [13:40 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: its just harder to work with matter
  • [13:40 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: or is it
  • [13:41 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: See, just prepend an "R"
  • [13:41 SLT] Youri Ashton: arawn, so the people that get a avitar and play with that are no real people? could you explain?
  • [13:41 SLT] Torley Linden: i believe that came up before Mojito but was deemed too impractical to enforce
  • [13:41 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: I was thinking, in addition to partner names, we could have master names,
  • [13:41 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: How is Second Life different from Reality?
  • [13:41 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: btw torley is there a planned rework on the prim system?
  • [13:41 SLT] Purity Sweetwater: master names?
  • [13:41 SLT] xstorm Radek: only people with the Linden last name work for linden labs
  • [13:41 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: to allow real mesh use
  • [13:41 SLT] Torley Linden: as well as people who aren't bots but want the last name Bot for the heck of it, maybe to pretend to be a bot like those Candid Camera store manneqins
  • [13:42 SLT] Torley Linden: Asuka, define "rework"? :)
  • [13:42 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Master's ames would be for Subs and Bots, mostly
  • [13:42 SLT] Jeremy Linden: People with the Tester last name also work for Linden Lab, but shouldn't be talking to Residents.
  • [13:42 SLT] Youri Ashton: no, how can a person behind a avitar not be real? the bots in SL are not advanced enough to be NPC's
  • [13:42 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: well for example for a obj mesh or 3ds to be used it wouldnt work with the current system
  • [13:42 SLT] Youri Ashton: i know jeremy :D
  • [13:42 SLT] WidgetHUD v1.2 (Mono): Youri Ashton has pinged you.
  • [13:42 SLT] xstorm Radek: OMG!! and i started to AR the TESTER name lol
  • [13:42 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: According to Nyx, meshes are being looked at
  • [13:42 SLT] xstorm Radek: joking ;-)
  • [13:42 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: RealXTend already has them
  • [13:43 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: You might think you have some thought kept from me but, if I can't see those thoughts, they aren't real, so you have no real secrets.
  • [13:43 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: yes but realxtend is heavily modified
  • [13:43 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: im talking for the main sl grig
  • [13:43 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: grid*
  • [13:43 SLT] Torley Linden: Asuka, ah, we have been investigating extending sculpties. no comment further on that for now, though.
  • [13:43 SLT] Frank Curameyer: Torley you like robots right? mind if i give you something?
  • [13:43 SLT] Torley Linden: please do, Frank!
  • [13:43 SLT] Frank Curameyer: okydoky
  • [13:43 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: That is why it is not easy, the same "heaviliy modifed" has to get done
  • [13:43 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i mean not with sculpties :D a totaly different method
  • [13:43 SLT] Frank Curameyer: lemme just find it
  • [13:43 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: without breaking all the old stuff
  • [13:43 SLT] xstorm Radek: whats a robot ?
  • [13:43 SLT] xstorm Radek: he he he he he
  • [13:43 SLT] Torley Linden: and yeah, what Mojito said... Nyx knows more. but, still very much "in the works".
  • [13:44 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: so its a future thing?
  • [13:44 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I have seen some INCREDIBLE things done with sculpties though
  • [13:44 SLT] Torley Linden: oh thanks a lot Frank, i'll check this out soon!
  • [13:44 SLT] Frank Curameyer: welcome :)
  • [13:44 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: im happy just knowing its a possibility
  • [13:44 SLT] Torley Linden: well, it certainly wouldn't be a past or present thing... so a future possibility, yes. ;)
  • [13:44 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: yea im a fan of nomasha's work
  • [13:44 SLT] Torley Linden: sculpties were borne on the back of a clever, clever hack... and they've really changed how much of the world looks.
  • [13:44 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: he done some amazing things with sculpts
  • [13:45 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Oh man, Nomasha. That guy had incredible work even before sculpties.
  • [13:45 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: They aren't Hacks or Exploits but User Created Upgrades
  • [13:45 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: yea those guitars :D
  • [13:45 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: love his work
  • [13:45 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: wouldnt surprise me if he got hired to build for lindens
  • [13:45 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I found some sculptures of the playing card people form Alice In WOnderland. Card for a body, with a head on top, arms and legs. One priim
  • [13:46 SLT] Torley Linden: technology keeps improving at cheaper prices, too.
  • [13:46 SLT] Torley Linden: nowadays, even low-end desktop computers have basic 3D. 10 years ago this was an incredulous stretch!
  • [13:46 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i think a big step for sculpts would be an inworld preview. i mean actualy spawning it to see if it scales properly ect :)
  • [13:46 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: What did state of the art technology look like, fifteen decades ago?
  • [13:46 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: without uploading a texture
  • [13:47 SLT] Torley Linden: Arawn, i visit retrogaming sites to indulge in that :)
  • [13:47 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: it was a calculator arwan
  • [13:47 SLT] Officer Core: wrong one, sorry
  • [13:47 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles
  • [13:47 SLT] Torley Linden: flexiprims have added so much too, can't imagine so much of the fashion industry without them
  • [13:47 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:47 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Babbage's Analytical Engine
  • [13:47 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: torley is flexy sculpts possible?
  • [13:47 SLT] Torley Linden: Asuka, i've seen it done on other Viewers. i don't know how stable/practical they are in actual usage but they look fun!
  • [13:47 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Somebody suggested animating the sculptie bump texture
  • [13:48 SLT] Torley Linden: i've seen that for animated animals and such, Mojito.
  • [13:48 SLT] Evil Titler: Give Asuka2 Torok a new nasty title! You have 60 seconds to assign it with /69!
  • [13:48 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: haha yea another thing i would like to see is true shadows. there was a fork in the svn but its gone now
  • [13:48 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: How you mean "true"
  • [13:48 SLT] Evil Titler: ErinSelene Llewellyn assigned a new title to Asuka2 Torok. S/he must live with it for a while!
  • [13:48 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: well u can fake it with textures
  • [13:48 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: 1.23 has shadows, but they kill performance
  • [13:49 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: but its not a real shadow
  • [13:49 SLT] Torley Linden: dynamic (non-baked and prerendered) shadows, i think? i played with an internal build that has projections for light prims
  • [13:49 SLT] Torley Linden: so you can play a movie and have it project across an entire, non-flat surface
  • [13:49 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I have just seen the one that does the sun
  • [13:49 SLT] Arawn Spitteler onders how a twisted torus can be flexi?
  • [13:49 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: yea it was in the svn but its removed now :( so perhapse it was scrapped
  • [13:50 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: There is the pipeline-render branch still there
  • [13:50 SLT] Officer Core: off to build, Peace
  • [13:50 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: well, it was there last week
  • [13:50 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: It does not do the projection thing though
  • [13:50 SLT] Laurent Bechir: what is pipeline-render branch ?
  • [13:50 SLT] Torley Linden: there are experimental features which are very tantalizing but we certainly can't guarantee the stability of
  • [13:50 SLT] Torley Linden: Runitai Linden would be a good guy to ask about that
  • [13:50 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: It is in the viewer SVN.
  • [13:50 SLT] Torley Linden: if he can share, that is
  • [13:50 SLT] Youri Ashton: Quarl is working on something he said on a meeting
  • [13:51 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: so soon we can have reall curly flexi hair?
  • [13:51 SLT] xstorm Radek: the nice part about sculptys you can name moving sculptys nano prims from them
  • [13:51 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Do words like Pipeline Render Branch exist in the Wiki?
  • [13:51 SLT] Youri Ashton: http://www.qarl.com/qLab/?p=59
  • [13:51 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I am not sure about that. I think somebody at an OH told me where it was
  • [13:51 SLT] Youri Ashton: look at that one
  • [13:51 SLT] xstorm Radek: make
  • [13:51 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: But building a viewer is an onerous task the first time.
  • [13:52 SLT] Torley Linden: that's a beautiful picture, Youri. i've seen others with Pastrami Linden's avatar... and more exciting things i just can't talk about yet!
  • [13:52 SLT] Arawn Spitteler doesn't remember that much of C++, but might get around to learning Python
  • [13:52 SLT] Torley Linden: it's always tough, because you want to show people what's coming, but it has to be tested rigorously and perform well, or else it'll be a disappointment
  • [13:53 SLT] Laurent Bechir: and does pupetter feature still exists in SVN ?
  • [13:53 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: giggles puppetter?
  • [13:53 SLT] Torley Linden: i don't know Laurent but that was a lot of fun to play with back years ago
  • [13:53 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: moving an av with script?
  • [13:53 SLT] SL6B Kiosk - 10 Prim Lg - Lit: Thank you! Your SL6B info and goodies will be delivered to you soon!
  • [13:53 SLT] Laurent Bechir: you could move it with your cursor
  • [13:53 SLT] Torley Linden: oh, if you want someone really crazy, and i mean this in the best of ways... http://ventrella.com <- guy who conceived flexiprims and avatar puppeteering
  • [13:53 SLT] Torley Linden: yeah you could fine-tune and adjust your avatar into poses and save them
  • [13:53 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: There i ssomething called "avateering" used by Metanomics for their TV show
  • [13:54 SLT] Torley Linden: well, the whole save thing wasn't even finalized
  • [13:54 SLT] Torley Linden: what's avateering?
  • [13:54 SLT] Laurent Bechir: but only on beta grid
  • [13:54 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: pupetteering an avatar
  • [13:54 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Typically they have the interviewee on voice.
  • [13:54 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Meanwhile some staff poeple animate the avatar.
  • [13:55 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: I think puppeteering is a better word for what I do with wolveli than bot . . . I just make her walk with me and talk to people
  • [13:55 SLT] Torley Linden: i'd like to see that, sounds more lively than, say, just a "talking head"
  • [13:55 SLT] ErinSelene Llewellyn: it's fun
  • [13:55 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Check out the web page for Metaniomics, I think there is a link about it
  • [13:55 SLT] Torley Linden: too many presenters sound good on voice but can't/don't know how to control their avatar at the same time
  • [13:55 SLT] Torley Linden: it's definitely a compound, acquired skill
  • [13:55 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Yes, they add hand gestures, etc
  • [13:55 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: Metanomics does not have the interviewee animate themselves
  • [13:55 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: They have staff poeple do it.

  • [13:56 SLT] Torley Linden: http://www.metanomics.net/index.php/services/art_of_avateering <- needs more info!
  • [13:56 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: In the end credits they usually mention the name of the avateers
  • [13:56 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: I suppose we're still a ways from Streaming Anims
  • [13:56 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: not realy
  • [13:56 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: i think sine waves hud does it
  • [13:56 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: Wouldn't we need the skins?
  • [13:57 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: So you wear a motion-capture suit in RL that completey moves your avatar??
  • [13:57 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: u choose animations on the site then reset ur hud in sl and it has the animations u chose
  • [13:57 SLT] Torley Linden: someday maybe mocap studios will be affordable enough that they're a modest luxury, instead of a crazy-high-priced one
  • [13:58 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: I have seen Japanese geisha dances that I think were done by motion-capture. Very exquisite details in hand and ankle positions
  • [13:58 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: u can probably make one at home. it would probably suck but save u alot of cash
  • [13:58 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: :D
  • [13:58 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: One that just did one arm would be useful.
  • [13:58 SLT] Torley Linden: i'll count on innovators to come up with brilliant homebrew solutions
  • [13:58 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: the way camera motion tracking is going i think mocap is in trouble
  • [13:58 SLT] Evil Titler: Give Asuka2 Torok a new nasty title! You have 60 seconds to assign it with /69!

  • [13:59 SLT] Torley Linden: there are always inventors who figure out how to do 80-90% of what a supremely expensive solution does at 20-30% of the cost... or less!
  • [13:59 SLT] Jeremy Linden: Thanks for coming, Youri.
  • [13:59 SLT] Evil Titler: Purity Sweetwater assigned a new title to Asuka2 Torok. S/he must live with it for a while!

  • [14:00 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: its like the wiimote tech but 100000 times more accurate
  • [14:00 SLT] Mojito Sorbet: But then need a way within SL to feed in all the joint positions in real time
  • [14:00 SLT] Asuka2 Torok: they could write there names on a piece of virtual paper
  • [14:00 SLT] Arawn Spitteler: I think Streaming Anim would be a P2P feature

  • [14:01 SLT] Torley Linden: amazing things do happen. we're all here talking together.
