[16:02] Ardy Lay: Hello

[16:02] Baker Linden: YAY ANDREW

[16:02] Motor Loon: ey Andrew

[16:02] Tiberious Neruda: nope. Andrew's shown up

[16:02] Sonya Haight: hmm they are playing hookie for the last meeting?

[16:02] Sonya Haight: ah nm

[16:02] Rex Cronon: hello everybody

[16:02] Andrew Linden: Hello

[16:02] MartinRJ Fayray: Hello Andrew

[16:02] Baker Linden: Simon is on vacation for a few days

[16:02] Baker Linden: I'm not sure where kelly is

[16:02] hedeoliver: ol

[16:02] hedeoliver Resident: "hello",[["","Hello"],["interjection","hello","hi","hoy"]]

[16:03] Ardy Lay: This is the only remaining meeting that doesn't conflict with my work schedule.

[16:03] Andrew Linden: Yeah, Simon is out today, so it looks like it is just Baker and me.

[16:03] Ardy Lay: In the past there were more.

[16:03] Tiberious Neruda: and I've brought up sensible objection to location of the Thursday meeting

[16:04] Baker Linden: so I don't have much news today. Actually, I don't have any news today. Just working on moving some more rezzing code to background threads to hopefully speed up rezzing of objects

[16:04] Tiberious Neruda: may find that attendance doesn't improve much

[16:04] Andrew Linden: Yeah well that brings me to the main announcement today... we're planning on closing this Friday meeting.

[16:04] Ardy Lay: I live in USA so I am working when the rest of the meettings are held and cannot attend them.

[16:04] Vincent Nacon: hmm strange

[16:04] Andrew Linden: So this is going to be the last Friday Simulator User Group.

[16:05] Nalates Urriah: bummer...

[16:05] Rex Cronon: from now on only tuesday?

[16:05] Vincent Nacon: but Tuesday still stand?

[16:05] Tiberious Neruda: already been told that. Saying it's being merged in with the Thursday one over on beta

[16:05] Vincent Nacon: ah ok

[16:05] Motor Loon: Any official reason, or are we just to make up our own gossip?

[16:05] Vincent Nacon: come on Motor.... it's fun to make gossip anyway

[16:05] Sonya Haight: we are very good at it

[16:05] Andrew Linden: Tuesday's Simulator User group will remain

[16:06] Vincent Nacon: alrighty then

[16:06] MartinRJ Fayray: What is the focus of the new merged thursday meeting? Only things related to server beta?

[16:06] Andrew Linden: and some of the usual Linden attendees of this Friday meeting will probably be attending the Thursday afternoon meeting on the beta grid semi-regularly.

[16:06] Andrew Linden: Basically, the idea is to combine some of the topics of this meeting with Thursdays.

[16:07] Motor Loon: well, thats something atleast

[16:07] Tiberious Neruda: ....I've just said that I doubt the Thursday meeting's attendance will improve

[16:07] MartinRJ Fayray: That's a good thing. Yes

[16:07] Andrew Linden: The impetus for these changes are a combination of things...

[16:07] Tiberious Neruda: 'cause of the hassle with switching grids for just that hour

[16:08] Tiberious Neruda: curious to know if there's a reason it needs to be on beta grid

[16:08] Andrew Linden: (1) Sticking around late on Fridays when we'd rather leave early, or take the day off for a long vacation has been a slight burden over the years. Not a big one but it has certainly crossed our minds.

[16:09] Tiberious Neruda: logical

[16:09] Andrew Linden: (2) Oskar's departure left a little bit of vacuum on Thursday afternoons.

[16:09] Vincent Nacon: yeah doesn't seem reasonable to have two a week when you should have once a month anyway!

[16:09] Motor Loon: certainly a mild way of putting it

[16:09] Andrew Linden: So, the question was raised: close Thursday? or maybe close Friday instead?

[16:10] Andrew Linden: Also, the usefulness of two Simulator User Groups per week was brought up over the years.

[16:10] Andrew Linden: We always defended the two meetings because we think they are valuable.

[16:10] Tiberious Neruda: ...dumb question: couldn't the time be kept but the location moved to here?

[16:10] Ardy Lay: You said it was so people in different timezones could attend.

[16:10] Andrew Linden: Originally these meetings were created for the Havok4 physics engine upgrade

[16:11] MartinRJ Fayray: Since kelly's was closed too, this is the only UG where we can ask about lsl related topics

[16:11] Nalates Urriah: Getting the latest on the decision of which RC was likely to roll was nice.

[16:11] Andrew Linden: and I wanted to make myself available to concerned residents

[16:11] SonicAnd Miles: Good Times... Havok4 -hehe

[16:11] Andrew Linden: and I didn't want to have a single time that might be timezone unfriendly to half of our community

[16:12] Kennylex Luckless: There is to few Lindens in the "Linden" vilage, move all meetings here.

[16:12] Andrew Linden: I think I opened Fridays first and then decided on Tuesdays for the European crowd.

[16:12] Tiberious Neruda: ...I remember Havok1, when you could make a prim that shot off when it hit something

[16:12] Andrew Linden: Yeah, those were some very crashy days Tiberious.

[16:12] Tiberious Neruda nods

[16:12] Tiberious Neruda: to this day, -never- mention the pokemon Mew around Luskwood...

[16:13] Andrew Linden: Anyway, that's the history of why this meeting was created.

[16:13] SonicAnd Miles: I remember seeing some people in the news from sl

[16:13] Andrew Linden: Originally it was "Andrew's Office Hours" and we had lots of office hours open.

[16:13] Vincent Nacon: fewer meeting, more work!

[16:13] MartinRJ Fayray: Will there be a chance to catch someone for lsl related issues?

[16:13] MartinRJ Fayray: With the new calendar

[16:13] Vincent Nacon: wasn't that Kelly's meeting?

[16:14] Sonya Haight: yeah those were good times, plenty of communication when they were called office hours and the wiki had a full list of times and dates

[16:14] Kennylex Luckless: Yes it was

[16:14] Vincent Nacon: or was he fired too?

[16:14] Andrew Linden: MartinRJ, I think the Simulator User Group is the best forum for bringing up LSL issues.

[16:14] Tiberious Neruda: it -would- be Nyx's... but that's become mesh

[16:14] Nalates Urriah: Kelly folded his meeting into this one.

[16:14] Vincent Nacon: ah ok

[16:14] Andrew Linden: Kelly is still around, but I think they closed the Script User Group for low attendance, and he wasn't actually working on the script engine much at that time.

[16:14] Vincent Nacon: merge merge Merge!

[16:15] Andrew Linden: So, Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons on the beta grid will now be the main places to bring up LSL issues.

[16:15] Vincent Nacon: sounds good

[16:15] Andrew Linden: If Kelly isn't around we can relay questions to him later if we don't know the answers.

[16:15] Tiberious Neruda: Tuesday here?

[16:15] MartinRJ Fayray: Thanks

[16:15] Andrew Linden: Yeah, Tuesdays will remain here.

[16:15] Tiberious Neruda: or are both on beta

[16:16] Andrew Linden: Dunno how the transcript publications will work out. I'll have to coordinate with Maestro.

[16:16] Theresa Tennyson: It does make sense to have server development people at the server beta meeting, too.

[16:16] Andrew Linden: Tuesday will be here on agni.

[16:16] Tiberious Neruda: my question: What's the reasoning behind having the meeting on beta grid?

[16:16] MartinRJ Fayray: Maestro seems to have immense knowledge about lsl. So I am totally fine with that:-)

[16:16] Andrew Linden: Thursday afternoon (15:00 SLT) will remain on beta.

[16:16] Ardy Lay: Good bye then. That puts the meetings out of my reach.

[16:16] Andrew Linden: The main focus of the Thursday meeting will remain the beta grid and up and coming changes.

[16:16] SonicAnd Miles: testing stuff tiberious

[16:17] Motor Loon: The last 20 betagrid meeting I've been at could just aswell have been held on maingrid...

[16:17] Andrew Linden: But I believe Simon will be trying to attend the Thursday meetings too.

[16:17] Andrew Linden: I'll try to attend, and maybe some of the other LL devs.

[16:18] TankMaster Finesmith: there was a good turnout of lindens yesterday

[16:18] Nalates Urriah: Maestro said he was going to try and get more of the server dev's at the meeting.

[16:18] Andrew Linden: Yeah, I attended yesterday but then got interrupted in RL and had to walk AFK.

[16:19] Andrew Linden: Other news... my interestlist work...

[16:19] Vincent Nacon: interestist?

[16:19] Andrew Linden: I solved the main performance issue that I've been struggling with for the last week...

[16:19] Andrew Linden: yeah, I've been working on cleaning up and fixing the interestlist

[16:19] Andrew Linden: which is what we call the code on the server that figures out what is in view and sends the various updates to the viewer

[16:20] Sonya Haight: can you fix it again and tell it to put one of my sims back on the world map?

[16:20] Andrew Linden: In the Develop menu you can enable some particles that will show you where the interestlist updates are coming in...

[16:21] Andrew Linden: Develop Menu --> Show Info Sub Menu --> Show Updates to Objects Option

[16:21] Vincent Nacon: ah

[16:21] Andrew Linden: If you enable that you'll see some blue, red, and green particles that show up spatially where the ObjectUpdates are arriving.

[16:22] Andrew Linden: Red means "full" update: when an object first arrives, or when some misc property changes.

[16:22] Motor Loon: hm not much... I'd have thought alot more data would be comming all the time

[16:22] Andrew Linden: Blue means "terse" update: change in object position/rotation/velocity, or a change in face color.

[16:23] Motor Loon: so how come Tank is updating all the time, and I'm not?

[16:23] Andrew Linden: Green means the object is no longer in the interstlist, which means it was deleted, or it was just dropped from the list (culled)

[16:23] Sonya Haight: more hair probably

[16:23] TankMaster Finesmith: o0

[16:23] Vincent Nacon: because Tank is awwesome! :P

[16:23] Theresa Tennyson: Tank's more interesting *giggle*

[16:23] TankMaster Finesmith: ^

[16:23] Motor Loon: you're so laggy tank...

[16:23] TankMaster Finesmith: thx!

[16:23] Motor Loon sticks tongue out

[16:23] Andrew Linden: The constant updates mean that he's got some script that is constantly changing some visible parameter

[16:24] Andrew Linden: such as floating text, scale, or some other property

[16:24] TankMaster Finesmith: no...

[16:24] TankMaster Finesmith: just a AO

[16:24] Motor Loon: I dont see anything on him moving so... wasted info?

[16:24] Rex Cronon: so if your script changes texture that forces updates of object that is in?

[16:24] TankMaster Finesmith: ive got some scritps I can't get rid of that only change the color of the object via the hud

[16:25] Nalates Urriah: Does the FS Bridge generate and update?

[16:25] Andrew Linden: Yes, changes of texture, texture parameters, color, etc

[16:25] Andrew Linden: will cause updates

[16:25] Sonya Haight: its red too, he needs ritalin

[16:25] Andrew Linden: The blue updates are relatively cheap.

[16:25] TankMaster Finesmith: no, bridge is created at login

[16:25] Andrew Linden: Red updates are more expensive.

[16:25] TankMaster Finesmith: and if it were, ithers herew ould be updating the same

[16:25] Tiberious Neruda: hmmm

[16:25] Theresa Tennyson: Tank and Jen are updating constantly.

[16:25] TankMaster Finesmith: others here would*

[16:25] Tiberious Neruda: how bad is that?

[16:26] Motor Loon: flexiprims would cause it right?

[16:26] Motor Loon: I mean wouldnt

[16:26] Andrew Linden: Anyway, my work on the interestlist is an effort to improve the code that figures out what updates to send, when to send them, and how to sort them.

[16:26] Tiberious Neruda: as far as updates

[16:26] Ardy Lay: We still get updates about blocked avatars

[16:26] Andrew Linden: It isn't a major overhaul, so the gains I'm expecting might not be very big

[16:26] Andrew Linden: but it looks like I've got some gains

[16:27] Andrew Linden: perhaps next Thursday we can do a pile-on or a demonstration of the new interestlist code.

[16:27] Motor Loon: and the problem of e.g. die-packets not getting to the viewer with reliability?

[16:27] Andrew Linden: Motor, lost packets is a problem for the interestlist

[16:27] Motor Loon: yeah, so that should improve a bit too?

[16:28] Andrew Linden: one of the things I'm going to do next is to try to make the green packets (KillObject) sent reliably.

[16:28] Motor Loon: ok

[16:28] Andrew Linden: Which should reduce or eliminate some of the "ghost objects" that vanish when you select them

[16:28] Motor Loon: yeah, I hate those

[16:28] Sonya Haight: are we supposed to be seeing green anywehre?

[16:28] Andrew Linden: you know, those objects that were deleted a while ago but for which their corresponding KillObject packet was lost.

[16:28] Vincent Nacon: yes... grass are green

[16:29] Sonya Haight thumps Vincent

[16:29] Vincent Nacon: :)

[16:29] Andrew Linden: Sonya, not green particles except for when an object is deleted, or falls out of view.

[16:29] Sonya Haight: ahh ok, can you delete Motor real quick so I can see?

[16:29] Tiberious Neruda: o.o

[16:29] Motor Loon: nooo

[16:29] TankMaster Finesmith: huimm , still updating like made with the fs bridge detached

[16:29] Rex Cronon: there seems to be an algorithm that can generate lost packets...

[16:29] Ardy Lay: Why are there so many object update particles rising from 0,0?

[16:29] Andrew Linden: So if you're flying away from a pile of objects looking back, you should eventually see some green particles show up when they go out of view.

[16:29] Sonya Haight: what version fs Tank?

[16:29] TankMaster Finesmith: 4.3.0

[16:30] Andrew Linden: Ardy, those <0,0,0> particle updates are actually on attachments

[16:30] Andrew Linden: the viewer does not properly transform those particles to the proper world location

[16:30] Sonya Haight: mine is much older and I have the bridge attached

[16:30] Andrew Linden: it is a viewer bug

[16:30] Andrew Linden: well, the particle updates are a viewer debug feature

[16:30] Ardy Lay: debug-bug

[16:30] Ardy Lay: Fun

[16:30] Andrew Linden: yeah buggy debug option

[16:30] Meeter: Timecheck : User Group is half over

[16:31] Kennylex Luckless: Btw, is there any way to block this kind of "Mega Marquee", even you block a person you can see them.

[16:31] Andrew Linden: What is a "Mega Marquee"?

[16:32] Kennylex Luckless: It is a wery anoying thing you can see several sim away

[16:32] Vincent Nacon: the hover text that Delustionalist had?

[16:32] delusionalist: more importantly, there are people hacking voice so that we cant mute them when they blast music and scream and stuff

[16:32] Kennylex Luckless: The fireman had one

[16:33] delusionalist: it's the same as any titler in SL

[16:33] Kennylex Luckless: Yes, hovering text on a mega prim a user where, efect is that you see it on a veru long distance

[16:33] MartinRJ Fayray: That's all viewerside

[16:33] Vincent Nacon: sounds like using mega prim to get the hover text appear from long distance I believe

[16:33] Motor Loon: its because you had the debug function active Kenny... often after use of those, hovertexts no longer go away with distance

[16:33] Andrew Linden: I still don't understand what it is. A very big object with hover text?

[16:33] Andrew Linden: I thought the viewer actually attenuates hover text based on distance

[16:34] delusionalist: no it's not a mega prim

[16:34] Vincent Nacon: Andrew, the distance on how Hover text appear is based on the size of the prim

[16:34] Andrew Linden: Oh hrm...

[16:34] Vincent Nacon: but

[16:34] Rex Cronon: so because the objejct is mega that forces the text above to show even if is very far away?

[16:34] Andrew Linden: yeah that would be a viewer-side problem

[16:34] Vincent Nacon: the mega prim can be trimmed down with profile cut and dimple and hidden in alpha

[16:34] Kennylex Luckless: Go to hubs in Zindra, they do advertise them there.

[16:34] Nalates Urriah: Hover text is messed up in the Development viewer. You can get hover text from regions 100+ meters away.

[16:34] Vincent Nacon: while maintaining the scale of mega

[16:34] Andrew Linden: Hrm...

[16:35] delusionalist: it's no mega prim tho it's fairly small

[16:35] Andrew Linden: the viewer could just not allow (or not send) hover text on objects of a certain size

[16:35] Chieron Tenk: some upper limit on hvertext visibility distance would be meaningful then

[16:35] Andrew Linden: does it even make sense for regular useful content to have hover text work on mega?

[16:35] Vincent Nacon: nope

[16:35] Andrew Linden: ... probably someone is using that as a feature

[16:36] Andrew Linden: if I nerfed it I'd probably get someone complaining

[16:36] Vincent Nacon: hmm...

[16:36] Andrew Linden: er... I'd probably get some non-griefer complaining

[16:36] Rex Cronon: maybe the user can choose whether or not hover text works on mega at a specific distance?

[16:36] Vincent Nacon: I think majority would be happy that if you nerf it

[16:36] Andrew Linden: about how their marquee in their private island suddenly stopped working

[16:36] Kennylex Luckless: There it is

[16:36] Rex Cronon: let user choose to use it or not

[16:36] MartinRJ Fayray: Hehe

[16:36] Vincent Nacon: and yeah, you are using mega prim for it

[16:37] Motor Loon: actually the viewer should just not render hovertexts attached to a blocked avatar...

[16:37] Kennylex Luckless: Ctrl-alt-t to see the invisible prim

[16:37] Vincent Nacon: I can see it in alpha mode

[16:37] delusionalist: it's only a bit longer than the floor where standing on

[16:37] delusionalist: thats not mega

[16:37] Motor Loon: well, its certainly big

[16:37] Tiberious Neruda: and it -does- poof aftr a little bit

[16:37] TankMaster Finesmith pulls out his 65535x65535 prim

[16:37] Andrew Linden: Oh, is it the blinking "Vote" on the fireman?

[16:38] delusionalist: yea

[16:38] Vincent Nacon: yup

[16:38] Tiberious Neruda: but it is a bit on the obnoxious side

[16:38] Andrew Linden: Ok that looks pretty annoying. That is done via llSetText()?

[16:38] Vincent Nacon: it's using Block character to make that message

[16:38] Motor Loon: FIrestorm derender seems to fix it

[16:38] delusionalist: aren't most titlers obnoxious?

[16:38] Vincent Nacon: yes

[16:38] Vincent Nacon: and outdated

[16:38] Kennylex Luckless: Even you mute folks have those they are visible

[16:38] Tiberious Neruda: ...point well made

[16:38] delusionalist: so you wanna ban all titlers?

[16:38] Andrew Linden: We should try to fix that viewer side first.

[16:38] Ardy Lay: We still get updates about blocked avatars

[16:38] Motor Loon pats Tank's head for derender

[16:39] Tiberious Neruda: ...discourage their use, at least

[16:39] Chieron Tenk: no, but lower obnoxiousness?

[16:39] Vincent Nacon: not bad, just give it nice limitation

[16:39] Andrew Linden: A viewer-side fix would allow residents to enable/disable it.

[16:39] Vincent Nacon: or control, viewer wise

[16:39] Kennylex Luckless: No, I want them not to show on users I has mute, no ban for them.

[16:39] Jonathan Yap: Not display hover text for muted avatars?

[16:39] Ardy Lay: Maybe something like MiniMapPrimMaxRadius?

[16:39] Vincent Nacon: just disable on mute

[16:40] Andrew Linden: Right, muting hover-text should help.

[16:40] delusionalist: there will always be things that people find obnoxious, but the best plan imho is like he said fix it so that people vccan easily mute it viewer side

[16:40] Motor Loon: agree

[16:40] TankMaster Finesmith: baker's group list loading code still slated to go out next week?

[16:40] Vincent Nacon: and maybe a distance slider?

[16:41] Andrew Linden: Good question TankMaster, lemme look at the plan for next week...

[16:41] delusionalist: geez, i find 50% of the avatars on SL obnoxious lol

[16:41] Vincent Nacon: so you don't have to mute your "stupid" friends ;)

[16:41] Jonathan Yap: Vincent: Oz and I have worked on 3 different ways to have a distance slider but so far none have been approved

[16:41] MartinRJ Fayray: Hehe

[16:41] Andrew Linden: Yeah, it looks like Magnum channel will be promoted to the main channel next week

[16:41] Vincent Nacon: in that case, slap them till they approve!

[16:41] TankMaster Finesmith: ok

[16:41] Andrew Linden: which includes Baker's code for large groups.

[16:42] Rex Cronon: u just need a textbox for user toenter value

[16:42] Kennylex Luckless: I never mute stupid folks, I often only mute advertising bots in welcome hubs and vampires.

[16:42] Tiberious Neruda: just send an army wearing those totlers he had on

[16:42] Andrew Linden: What is currently on BlueSteel and LeTigre will also go to Magnum

[16:42] TankMaster Finesmith: more brakage for phoe next week then :P

[16:42] Andrew Linden: so all three RC's next Wednesday will get the same update.

[16:43] Tiberious Neruda: if that don't convince 'em, doubt little will

[16:43] Theresa Tennyson: When do you think the interest list will be on an RC?

[16:43] Vincent Nacon: if all fail, slap`em some more

[16:43] Vincent Nacon: no one like getting slapped anyway

[16:43] Andrew Linden: Theresa, my hope would be to wrap it up for QA early next week.

[16:43] delusionalist: it would be great if there was an option to completely mute all invites ie: TPs, Groups, etc and also mute Conference calls

[16:44] Andrew Linden: If I could do that then it might go through QA over next weekend and then be in the queue for RC

[16:44] TankMaster Finesmith: I thought it was funny that a thread poped up on SLU about us not supporting phoe anymore just because a lot of really really old phoe jiras were closed as won't implment

[16:44] Ardy Lay: Log out? ;-)

[16:44] Tiberious Neruda: that's news?

[16:44] Andrew Linden: since all three RC channels are getting the same code next week, that means the queue for RC is pretty empty

[16:44] Rex Cronon: there would be lot less work if the viewer allowed plugins/addons...

[16:45] Andrew Linden: however, we've got a No Change window coming up later this month for the US Thanksgiving holiday

[16:45] delusionalist: for example everytime im in safe hub i get offered green mouse and invited to some group that costs $999L

[16:45] Theresa Tennyson: Region crossing isn't as hateful as I thought it would be if you're on a road instead of the ground.

[16:45] Vincent Nacon: I know this isn't the mesh meeting but can someone update me on Mesh Deformer?

[16:45] Tiberious Neruda: yeah, that's ridiculous

[16:45] Tiberious Neruda: someone tried sending me a group invite that cost 9,999

[16:45] TankMaster Finesmith: mesh deformer status" its still under development

[16:46] Andrew Linden: So, the earliest the interestlist code could be up in RC would probably be Nov 27th.

[16:46] Theresa Tennyson: Safe hub = pre Giuliani Times Square.

[16:46] Andrew Linden: What is phoe?

[16:46] Vincent Nacon: basically the same status since Spring

[16:46] Nalates Urriah: For news on the Deformer look at:

[16:46] Vincent Nacon: ah thanks

[16:47] Tiberious Neruda: wouldn't that be Phoenix Viewer?

[16:47] Theresa Tennyson: Phoe = Phoenix viewer, Andrew.

[16:47] Andrew Linden: ah ok thanks. I was not hip to that lingo.

[16:47] Tiberious Neruda: old v1 client people cling to...

[16:47] Motor Loon: grins

[16:47] TankMaster Finesmith: heh, sorry for not being more specific :P

[16:48] Theresa Tennyson: Oz is discussing having everyone show up to his Wednesday meeting using the deformer test viewer.

[16:48] TankMaster Finesmith: but yeah, its still the second most used viewer to

[16:48] Tiberious Neruda: can't you put out a MOTD for PH saying that the only update is to FS?

[16:48] TankMaster Finesmith: we may

[16:48] TankMaster Finesmith: there should be a blog soon about phoe anyway

[16:49] Tiberious Neruda: it's past time

[16:49] TankMaster Finesmith: ^

[16:49] SonicAnd Miles: i use default viewer :p

[16:49] Theresa Tennyson: If Tank was into that kind of punishment he'd be somewhere on Zindra right now.

[16:49] TankMaster Finesmith: LL's V3 is the third most used viewer

[16:49] Motor Loon: I finally convinced my damn redhead wifey to upgrade from Phoenix the other day... that was a massive task indeed and came with a whole lot of whining...

[16:50] Tiberious Neruda: though I don't know if I'll be making the beta grid meetings...

[16:50] Sonya Haight: she will switch back if you don't make her delete Phoenix from her computer totally

[16:50] SonicAnd Miles: they should outlaw 1.x viewers :p

[16:50] Tiberious Neruda: ...just cut 'em off the grid totally

[16:51] TankMaster Finesmith: lol

[16:51] Rex Cronon: lol. hold you horses

[16:51] Theresa Tennyson: You'll end up in a cage match with the "We should boycott mesh" group.

[16:51] Sonya Haight: anyone know how long a map takes update? new snapshot or whatever you want to call it?

[16:52] Rex Cronon: why would u want to inflict such cruel and unusual punishment on everybody:)

[16:52] MartinRJ Fayray: How bout a little iframe next to the login button that informs phoenix users that they should switch to a newer version:-)

[16:52] Tiberious Neruda: if those people walk, they won't be missed

[16:52] Andrew Linden: Sonya, the map tile should update daily

[16:52] Tiberious Neruda: we've had mesh for more than a year now

[16:52] Andrew Linden: I think the map generation starts sometime after midnight every day

[16:52] Sonya Haight: my main sim has been off the map since Tuesdays rolling restart

[16:52] Andrew Linden: and is not complete until later in the morning

[16:52] Sonya Haight: I've placed a platform at 250, even that hasn't showed up

[16:52] Andrew Linden: Sonya, which region is that?

[16:52] Sonya Haight: sunny point

[16:53] TankMaster Finesmith: I thought the images were taken at 150m

[16:53] Andrew Linden looks on the map...

[16:53] Sonya Haight: should be ocean with one dot on it at the moment

[16:53] Vincent Nacon: yeah I thought it was 150m too

[16:53] Tiberious Neruda: if they refuse to update, well, don't let the door hit 'em, I say

[16:53] Sonya Haight: well 3 dots now

[16:53] Motor Loon: interesting

[16:53] Sonya Haight: nah thinks show up below 400 I think it is

[16:53] Sonya Haight: things*

[16:54] Sonya Haight: I've restarted it a couple of times since Tuesday too

[16:54] MartinRJ Fayray: Restarts wont work

[16:54] Sonya Haight: oops on Tuesday after rolling restarts I mean

[16:54] Theresa Tennyson: I think the cutoff is right about at the top of the Eiffel Tower in 1900 Paris

[16:54] Jonathan Yap: You are saying SUnny Point has no land mass now?

[16:54] Theresa Tennyson: I'm seeing just the name and na couple of peopledots.

[16:55] Sonya Haight: yah but its was going all blinky when I stood on teh sim next door Martin, thought I would try it

[16:55] Jonathan Yap: I see a map

[16:55] TankMaster Finesmith: I see gray people

[16:55] MartinRJ Fayray: Lol

[16:55] Sonya Haight: Sunny Point is there, people are tping in fine, but the land is not showing on teh world map Jonathan

[16:55] Kennylex Luckless: :-)

[16:55] Meeter: Timecheck : User Group is almost over

[16:56] Jonathan Yap: I see the road going in from the other regions etc

[16:56] Andrew Linden: Yeah, you're right. It isn't on the map.

[16:56] Sonya Haight: you see it?

[16:56] Jonathan Yap: yes

[16:56] Sonya Haight: the actual land?

[16:56] Jonathan Yap: but, I am probalby using the UDP version of the map viewer

[16:56] MartinRJ Fayray: I don't see it

[16:56] Andrew Linden: So the map update job is not running or is not completing.

[16:56] Rex Cronon: we just entered the twilight zone...

[16:57] Ardy Lay: Is it missing at all zoom levels?

[16:57] Sonya Haight: well kick something Andrew and make it work

[16:57] Sonya Haight: yes seems so

[16:57] Andrew Linden: Sonya, I don't know why it isn't on the map, but I'll ask around at LL later to see if anyone else knows what is up.

[16:57] Sonya Haight: I have played with other sims that are poofing at different levels Ardy, but this one is just gone gone

[16:57] Theresa Tennyson: I think it was yesterday that I saw the weird missing stripes on the map that happened a couple of months ago.

[16:58] Jonathan Yap: Andrew, my old V1 viewer is showing the map

[16:58] Sonya Haight: ok thanks Andrew

[16:58] Andrew Linden: Sonya, whatever I learn, I'll send you an IM.

[16:58] Sonya Haight: thanks

[16:58] SonicAnd Miles: rebake the terrain :-/

[16:58] Sonya Haight: might have to

[16:58] Jonathan Yap: Maybe it is a bad cache entry for the http map server or something

[16:59] Ardy Lay: Tile got generated. The cloud fails yet again.

[16:59] Tiberious Neruda shrugs

[16:59] Andrew Linden: No, I think the map should regen daily, no terrain rebake required.

[16:59] Jonathan Yap: what if you zoom out 1 level, do you see it?

[16:59] Sonya Haight: no, not there at any zoom level

[17:00] Andrew Linden: I wonder if the V1 viewer is using an old map tile.

[17:00] TankMaster Finesmith: latest phoe I think uses the http map

[17:00] Andrew Linden: I can't remember how the V1 map tile generation is different from the new one.

[17:00] Tiberious Neruda: I see the sim to its west, but not that one

[17:00] Sonya Haight: I am on the old fs, darn and tossed out phoenix so cant' try that

[17:00] Meeter: Thank you for coming to the Server User Group

[17:01] Andrew Linden: Well, even if a V1 map works, there is a problem with the map tile generator.

[17:01] Kennylex Luckless: Yw Meeter.

[17:01] Ardy Lay: 020d89ab-b256-fa25-2b56-919ae1cba220

[17:01] Jonathan Yap: Map failure using Radegast, too

[17:01] Theresa Tennyson: There was a time when the world map was missing long vertical stripes a couple of months ago for a while - I noticed that happening again yesterday or the day before.

[17:02] Andrew Linden: Yeah Theresa, I heard about that. There is more than one failure mode that can cause that.

[17:02] Andrew Linden: I was wondering if that event was related, but I'll have to ask around.

[17:02] TankMaster Finesmith: someone mooned the camera, and it broke

[17:02] Sonya Haight: probably was me, took extra long on that restart

[17:02] Andrew Linden: I've been very much focused on this interestlist work so I haven't been paying attention to most other issues.

[17:03] Andrew Linden: I should repeat: this is the last Friday Simulator User Group meeting.

[17:03] Object: Hello, Avatar!

[17:03] Andrew Linden: We'll continue to meet on Tuesdays (12:00 SLT)

[17:03] Sonya Haight: yeah thats it

[17:04] TankMaster Finesmith: thanks for all you lindens do for us

[17:04] Andrew Linden: and we'll also cover some of the simulator issues in the Thursday afternoon (15:00 SLT) meeting on the beta grid (in Morris).

[17:04] TankMaster Finesmith: hope everyone has a good weekend

[17:04] Andrew Linden: Thanks for coming.

[17:04] Sonya Haight: thats not a new map picture though or it would show the platform and other stuff I put in the sky Tuesday night

[17:04] Rex Cronon: tc all those leaving

[17:04] Nalates Urriah: sunny point is not showing up in

[17:04] Theresa Tennyson: Ooo, you could have a crappy sim and put giant tiles above it making it look cool...

[17:04] Rex Cronon: and have a nice day:)

[17:04] Inara Breen: Thank you as always, Andrew

[17:04] Baker Linden: Thanks for coming everyone! See you Tuesday!

[17:04] Ardy Lay: Sonya, that's dated Fri, 9th Nov 2012

[17:05] Vincent Nacon: take care

[17:05] TankMaster Finesmith: lol, so I wonder if LL will have an official release with baker's code before his code hits all the servers...

[17:05] Yuzuru Jewell: Thank you, Simon and Baker.
