Claudine Chantilly: sorry pinky. .i'm here yes.. was trying to find something on the jira
Pinky Ebbage: Ohhh
Torley Linden: Randal, hmmm well "Go Away/AFK When Idle" should actually be ticked if you DO want AFK to work... unless I'm misunderstanding you?
Arawn Spitteler suggests Hybernation, and plenty of Watermelon
Torley Linden: I like "Hypernation". ;)
Pinky Ebbage: It's alright, have to read quick here :-)
Evangeline Martinek: tis bad for you
Randal Kline: its unticked to prevent afking but apparently it is not working today

Torley Linden: I'm hoping to do more community education.
Claudine Chantilly: torley.. the well-know freeze/crash bug while turning the camera.. due to memory overflow when lots of large bitmaps flow in.. if memory serves.. you pronounced it 'fixed' in the jira. ..
Daten Thielt: ;o but we need to to keep proding the windlight lindens!
Torley Linden: So that means I'd be spending less time on the Issue Tracker per se (altho still visiting it from time to time).
Torley Linden: I'm still onboard with Team WindLight.
Pinky Ebbage: I experience that freeze/crash to trun the camera as well
Torley Linden: Claudine: Which #?

Multi Chair Crate v1.0.42 (TORLEY MOD) whispers: Maximum number of chairs reached, please rez another Multi Chair table.

Pinky Ebbage wonders how many AVs Torley really has
Pinky Ebbage giggles
Torley Linden: It's kinda weird because I do have those dreams where I'm falling but I almost ALWAYS hit the ground.
Torley Linden: And I'm not dead.
Chase Marellan stopped wondering a long time agou
Pinky Ebbage: Ohhh nooo, Torley!
Chase Marellan: Torley -- I hav ethose too! And the worst thing is that I hit the ground even if I wake up.
Igel Hawks: *giggles*

Igel Hawks smiles
Psyra Extraordinaire: Dahh, it *is* done. Well, that makes it easier :>
Daten Thielt: Torley what lindens should i look at if i want to discuss LSL stuffs?

Torley Linden: Some of our developers hold office hours.
Torley Linden: Havok 4 is Andrew Linden's providence if you want to talk about scripted vehicles and physics.
Psyra Extraordinaire gave you Pillow-Ness Melonstyle.
Torley Linden: Hahaha thanx Psyra!
Daten Thielt: Well ive been working with some people on Animation and why animation scripts cause so much script time when in use
Torley Linden: The way you are moving side to side, it's amazingly cute.
Psyra Extraordinaire: =D
Torley Linden: We're also working on moving towards Mono, which should improve server + script performance...
Pinky Ebbage: I've experienced that, Daten, trying to use any kind of animation scripts in my parcels, yes
Psyra Extraordinaire: Mmmmm, caulk.
Torley Linden: more details in the Podcast with Joe Linden (Miller) @
Chase Marellan: Do you know the timing on Mono?
Daten Thielt: Ye we here about mono once and it goes and dissapear ago
Torley Linden: Chase, not exactly right now. I know it's being internally tested by Lindens on our test grids.
Dimitrio Lewis: Mono is going to be really interesting
Chase Marellan: and whether existing scripts will continue to work?
Chase Marellan: So more or less than 6 months, you think?
dibbs Dovgal: Yes existing scripts will work.
Arawn Spitteler understands that Animation Scripts use lots of Server Time, by continualy asking what animation is waiting to be replaced: Eventually, I hope the Client will be upgraded, to control the AO directly
Chase Marellan: cool
Psyra Extraordinaire: Every time I hear mono I can't help thinking of caulking my bathroom, sigh. This must be what it's like in the mind of Tim Taylor.
Pinky Ebbage: Ohh yeah, saw that story with Joe Linden(Miller)
Torley Linden: Chase, from what I've heard, yes, backward compatibility is the goal.
Torley Linden: A great Linden to ask about Mono I think is... Periapse... he's Program Managing it.
Mariel Voyunicef: Hi! A lot of people in the Spanish forum say they want an efficient client and webpage in Spanish. If we sent corrections for the client translation at least, would they be taken into account, or should we just wait?
Chase Marellan: cool. do you know whether we're talking about, say, more than 6 months versus less than 6 months?
JetZep Zabelin: I guess we'll see a mono preview soon
Daten Thielt: hope so
Torley Linden: Chase: Not sure about that.
Chase Marellan: OK. :) Thanks anyway. :)
Pinky Ebbage: Mono?....ohhh ack....noooo, not that disease?......ohhh, something else?
Daten Thielt notes down Periapse
Pinky Ebbage blushes
JetZep Zabelin: hehe
dibbs Dovgal: Zero seems to think that we will be dealing with a mono beta rollout fiarly soono.
Arawn Spitteler wonders about interest in efficiency in Spanish
Torley Linden: Mariel, we have an Internationalization Team... they should be taken into account, I'd at least create an issue on the Issue Tracker with the details.
Torley Linden: See this, Mariel:
Mariel Voyunicef: Thanks. :)
Torley Linden: And please do share it with anyone interested in providing translations, it's appreciated and you're welcome.
Mariel Voyunicef: .
Psyra Extraordinaire: Interextroproquasiparanationalimentaferrazation team. you know you guys want to add more prefixes and suffixes to that, there's a start.
Multi Chair Crate v1.0.42 (TORLEY MOD) whispers: Maximum number of chairs reached, please rez another Multi Chair table.

aliceinwire Bleac: aruko aruko watashi wa gen ki
Evangeline Martinek: me as well, Chase
aliceinwire Bleac: aruko no daisuki
Chase Marellan: :)
Pinky Ebbage: Don't think I want to try to change AVs now, probably wouldn't work with the lag :-)
Pinky Ebbage grins
Mariel Voyunicef: Also... In the transfer e-mail I got, there was something about going to a sim named Baffin that I never found. Is it still up and running under a different name?
Chase Marellan: The story of my life: even when I'm normal I'm weird! :)
Evangeline Martinek: but.. still we're unique... no others like us, hmm?
Psyra Extraordinaire: It's ossible Baffim could be a TG sim.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Baffin, too.
Chase Marellan: Hehehe. Right. :)
Daten Thielt Wonders if there is more chance of becoming a linden if ur a mentor XD
Mariel Voyunicef: I never saw it, Psyra, though that'd be a bit ironic
Torley Linden: Mariel: Weird... Baffin is up.
Psyra Extraordinaire: But there is a Baffin here
Mariel Voyunicef: Is it?
Torley Linden: Mariel: Try looking for it on the World Map? It's a pleasant island with a Teen Graduation Station of sorts.
Mariel Voyunicef: Maybe I need to look for it another 15 times
Psyra Extraordinaire: Blue Linden's coffee shop is there. :>
aliceinwire Bleac: you are so cool today torley :D
Torley Linden: Mariel, try looking for "Sargasso"? It's to the east of Baffin.
Psyra Extraordinaire: And it looks better than a real Starbucks'
Mariel Voyunicef: OK, now I know it exists
Torley Linden: Thanx alice!
Mariel Voyunicef: Thanks a lot for the advice
Torley Linden: Mariel: Grrreat.
Torley Linden: You're welcome. :D
aliceinwire Bleac: totoro is cool :D

aliceinwire Bleac: i love the totoro songs
aliceinwire Bleac: and totoro video

Pinky Ebbage giggles to Psyra about the Starbucks

Dimitrio Lewis: heh
Torley Linden: aliceinwire, I'll send it to you and see...
JetZep Zabelin dances to "some kinda wonderful"

Daten Thielt: It can be played as a team or single player game, it involved a 40x40 arena where u fly around with a cannon/batton collect balls and firre them, it invloved alot more than that but the best way to explain it is a little like 3d pong, but to understand it, it needs to be played lol

Torley Linden: For awhile it was a running joke that I existed only in SL and was an AI construct or something...
Marianne McCann: Pillowgriff... guns? My goodness
Daten Thielt: i wana go to the office in brighton i think its in?
aliceinwire Bleac: yes but also the linden lab sim
aliceinwire Bleac: for sanfrancisco i have no money :(
Pinky Ebbage grins to Torley about being virtual
Chase Marellan: Torley: that's the way of today's world; I was just musing with somebody that I haven't laid eyes on the person hiring me in 15 years.
Marianne McCann: It's a nice place3 to visit, alice. Spendy to live here, though
Arawn Spitteler thinks: there should be a Linden Avenue Sim, in SL
Psyra Extraordinaire: We fixed that particular bug. :D
JetZep Zabelin: behind every avatar is a real person, even the alts.. except the bots =D
Psyra Extraordinaire: I am NOMAD, I am perfect.
Chase Marellan: hahahaha
aliceinwire Bleac: linden lab is in san francisco linden avenue :P
Psyra Extraordinaire: That which is imperfect must be sterilized.
Dimitrio Lewis: behind some avatars there's an empty chair...
ROMSEY Homewood: i'm a teddy bear
JetZep Zabelin: lol
ROMSEY Homewood: hehe!
Moard Ling: wann mate romsey
Pinky Ebbage: "I'm not a number...." uhm
JetZep Zabelin: afk takes over my account sometimes
ROMSEY Homewood: eep! can you reach?
Daten Thielt: alot of people dont get it that when they hurt some one here there is a rl person behind the av, avs are puppets we are the puppitiers
Moard Ling: my keepers make me amte with anythign that has fur
Marianne McCann: Psyra - I almost named the new computer NOMAD. Went with Conky 2000 instead. An my, but it;'s nice to see SL on a decent ;'puter
Torley Linden: Chase: Wow! Now you're really being progressive, if you've been doing it for 15 yrs.!
aliceinwire Bleac: oh torley i know that in the linden HQ there is one of my collaboration group object
Chase Marellan: Oh yeah.
aliceinwire Bleac: :)
Psyra Extraordinaire: Mine's named behemoth.
Psyra Extraordinaire: All metal case the size of Rhode Island, and I think it weighs in excess of 4 tons.
Marianne McCann: Psyra - my others are Lappy, Treadwell, and Clango
Evangeline Martinek: yikes!
Psyra Extraordinaire: Give or take.
Pinky Ebbage: Oh my, Psyra
Chase Marellan: To be fair, 15 years ago it was somebody who hired me for an in-the-office job, but I didn't actually meet them face to face until I'd move 1300 miles to where the office was.
blogHUD Messenger: Your image post has arrived at []: see
aliceinwire Bleac: because the rss feed reader that i have give to linden send here position to the php script
Rock Pond Pose ball: llStopAnimation: Script trying to stop animations but agent not found
Psyra Extraordinaire: Either way,I need a dollie to move it around, you can NOT lift it.
Chase Marellan: But since then, it's all remote, for the most part.
aliceinwire Bleac: nad i have see that one is on linden HQ
Marianne McCann: Daten - yes. I saw that back when I worked on AOL even, a lot of people just assuming we were like programs there to serve them
Chase Marellan: moved*
Claudine Chantilly: why do attachments stick preferentially to the crotch when they fall off, Torley?
Moard Ling cant belive you can work for a firm whose canteen you have not seen
Psyra Extraordinaire: technically they're sticking to the butt.
Evangeline Martinek: hahahaa yeah, why?
Chase Marellan: PRIMSTIPATION!
Evangeline Martinek: hahahahaa
Evangeline Martinek: hahahaha
JetZep Zabelin: i think thats 0,0,0 on an avatar
Pinky Ebbage: /me
Psyra Extraordinaire: They stick to the base of the avatar, which is a spot at the hips.
Chase Marellan: Moard: hehehehe....
Torley Linden: Claudine, oh, the "hair in butt" AKA "ass-attachment" bug... it has so many funny names... see the Issue Tracker for details on that... Nicholaz Beresford patched it, I think.
Marianne McCann has worked for companies she has never seen, and for people she has never physically met
Evangeline Martinek hysterically rolling on the desk top, still
Chase Marellan: Sometimes that's the best way. :)
Arawn Spitteler: Technically, attachments often appear at the center of the avatar's bounding box; effectively, we have our head s up our butts
Psyra Extraordinaire: The focal point (I almost trped 'fecal', which would be been correct too, but ickier) is between the hips.
Moard Ling: Me to Marianne facless suits, but not seeign th canteen ...
Torley Linden: Hahah Arawn, I've seen that.
JetZep Zabelin: never happens to me anymore but i get attachments that rotate independently of my av and mistplaced
Torley Linden: I've had the AWFUL experience of being folded in half!
Pinky Ebbage: I think we've all had that one, ack, the old crotch attachment thing
Torley Linden: WITH MY HEAD UP MY ASS!
Torley Linden: X_X
Pinky Ebbage giggles
JetZep Zabelin: hehe i saw an av with its head up its butt
Chase Marellan: That was a GREAT bug!
Chase Marellan: I've seen that one. :)
Torley Linden: Someone should do a machinima of that...
Chase Marellan: I've BEEN that one. :)
Evangeline Martinek: right on
Torley Linden: it's downright freaky, like a Silent Hill movie.
Harleen Gretzky: Nicholaz's patch fixes that too JetZap
Chase Marellan: I have a snapshot somewhere. :)
Torley Linden: Whoa Psyra your teeth rezzed for me before the rest of you...
Torley Linden: fierce panda jaws!
aliceinwire Bleac: torley your sword have not script inside for W A S D control
Moard Ling: polymoprhism aside presumably theres a bit of viewer code that says if UID=pants drawpants
JetZep Zabelin: i wonder if theres an animation to do it now
Marianne McCann: Daten - it's someting dat fascinates me, the whole way "social interaction" workin in a virtual world
aliceinwire Bleac: and also no animation
Psyra Extraordinaire: Heehee.
aliceinwire Bleac: :P
Torley Linden: aliceinwire: Hmmm... sorry then, maybe I was mistaken and it was another sword.
Moard Ling: of if uID+pants NOP
Psyra Extraordinaire: Now I feel like huggin' Moard.
Torley Linden: aliceinwire: It's been awhile since I used a weapon like that.
ROMSEY Homewood: its a panda hangout!!!
Evangeline Martinek: the human mind can't distinguish between virtual beings and real beings
Torley Linden: Some people really need to see a face.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Take us to your bambooooooo.
Torley Linden: That's why things without faces terrify them.
Evangeline Martinek: not ultimately
Pinky Ebbage: lol
Moard Ling: Big Mommy/Daddy hia
Torley Linden: "Cuteness" is usually a positive attribute...
Moard Ling: *suckle*
Torley Linden: hardly ever have I heard things that look so dissimilar from humans as being "cute".
JetZep Zabelin: hehe Evangeline my mind sees my avatar and i think Im the MASTER muhahaha
Psyra Extraordinaire: There we go. Wild Kingdom comes to you!
Evangeline Martinek: true enough.. but we don't master the others
Marianne McCann: True, Torley. I s'pect some react to me differently due to "the cuteness factor"
Torley Linden: I like saying "avatars in the wild".
Chase Marellan: hahahaha
Marianne McCann: In spite of some of the other stuff
Moard Ling: when they caught me i was wild
Moard Ling: actually i was livid
Torley Linden: Some say the reason for cuteness is so we don't kill/eat the defenseless young.
Torley Linden: Hahah Moard.
Torley Linden: I want to break out of a prison in Second Life, that'd be an experience.
Marianne McCann gave you Bellagio, Isle of Dreams (168, 147, 21).
Torley Linden: I want to see a Shawshank Redemption recreation...
Chase Marellan: hehehe
Torley Linden: heck, someone's done The Green Mile.
Torley Linden: Thanks for the landmark Mari!
Evangeline Martinek: I broke into the jail here once..
JetZep Zabelin: hmm its probably true but then those snakes like to eat baby chickens from my roost
aliceinwire Bleac: i'm hungry :P
Torley Linden: Please feel free to send your kewl landmarks to me!
Evangeline Martinek: accidentally cliked on a file cabnit
Evangeline Martinek: *cabinet
Psyra Extraordinaire: I guess I don't have much vision, I wanna make the Engineering area of the TOS Enterprise.
ROMSEY Homewood: panda milk available!
Pinky Ebbage: Torley - they've said that on those nature shows, the young are "cute" to the adults, the instinct to nurture them to living
Evangeline Martinek: whoa.. wrong tihng to do
Dimitrio Lewis: that would be neat, Psyra
JetZep Zabelin: i tried to make a cute av so not to scare newbies
Torley Linden: Pinky: Interesting... humans seem more attached to their young after they're fully grown than other species.
Pinky Ebbage grins to Torley
Evangeline Martinek: hmm... not me
Chase Marellan: Sometimges TOO attachedc.
aliceinwire Bleac: sorry if i'm a bit away
Evangeline Martinek: perhaps, after they move out
aliceinwire Bleac: i'm study japanese
Chase Marellan: Then their kids move back in and they remember why they couldn't wait for them to move out.
Marianne McCann: Yer welcome, Torley! It's a recreation of the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas. Pretty nicely done, all in all
Chase Marellan: Adult children are generally easier to love at a distance.
Moard Ling: any brad priott ?
Psyra Extraordinaire: "How big is a newborn baby?" "A newborn baby is big enough to make a big racket!"
Torley Linden: Ohhh RECREATION OF A HOTEL!?!?!?!?
Torley Linden: OMG!!!!!!
Torley Linden: I LOVE HOTELS!
Pinky Ebbage: We're supposed to be the smartest species.....but are we the wisest? get along with nature, to not misuse it?
aliceinwire Bleac: but i love you all also if i'm study japanese :)
aliceinwire Bleac: torley i don't like weapon too
Randal Kline: cant find any bamboo in my inventory for the panda bears :(
aliceinwire Bleac: like sword and other stuff
Marianne McCann: Full scale, I believe, with the water show
Moard Ling need to eat 90% of the day
Psyra Extraordinaire: Maybe it's turtle time.
Torley Linden: I'd like to grow bonsai if I were to took up a nice, quiet hobby.
aliceinwire Bleac: but i have ake a sword for this samurai avi
Torley Linden: Mari: That sounds pretty nifty already.
JetZep Zabelin: I got to see that Bellagio. . i lived in vegas for a year
aliceinwire Bleac: and i want make it good
Psyra Extraordinaire: That's a bit overkill. :D
Torley Linden: I've never been to Las Vegas but I'd have to stay out of the casinos!
JetZep Zabelin: lol
Daten Thielt: indeed
aliceinwire Bleac: i don't like to do stuff bt not finishing it
Psyra Extraordinaire: I'm taking the risk that eventually no attachments will work........ aaaand I think that time just hit.
Psyra Extraordinaire: There it goes.
Evangeline Martinek: nope.. not just yet Psyra
Torley Linden: alice, that looks like a soot gremlin.
Torley Linden: Soot sprite.
JetZep Zabelin: just setaside a $20 and play the nickel & dime slots and free drinks all night
JetZep Zabelin: hehe
Psyra Extraordinaire: Soot spirits. :D
Marianne McCann: Haiku: It was unforseen / We cannot connect you now / Try again later
Psyra Extraordinaire: Squadrons of WWII flying turtles....
Torley Linden: Mari, that sounds almost like something out of Portal.
Dimitrio Lewis gave you WindLight pics (Dimi).
Torley Linden: Thx for the pics, Dimi. I shall peruse... BTW Dimi, I like the intro you have on your films...
Marianne McCann: Heh!
Dimitrio Lewis: thanks :)
Torley Linden: Very dramatic w/WindLight.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Heh.
Marianne McCann: Why does my prim drift? / Lag can be a harsh mistress / And it is Sunday
Torley Linden: Hahaha Mari.
Torley Linden: That's so zen.
ROMSEY Homewood: /hug Krystaal
aliceinwire Bleac: torley you know japanese?
Torley Linden: *clasps big paws together*
Torley Linden: alice: No, I wish I could speak it better.
ROMSEY Homewood: /hug Krystaal
ROMSEY gives Krystaal a big hug.
aliceinwire Bleac: when we do a holiday in japan torley ? :D
Psyra Extraordinaire: My knowledge of Japanese words is limited to 'Hyundai', 'Honda', 'Mitsubishi', 'Sushi' and the like.
ROMSEY Homewood: hmm bear HUGS
Pinky Ebbage grins to Psyra
Krystaal Chevalier: hehe
Krystaal Chevalier: TC
ROMSEY Homewood: tata! see you
Psyra Extraordinaire: Caw! ^_^
Pinky Ebbage: My background is Czech, but it is a difficult language
ROMSEY Homewood: /grope
Marianne McCann: No water ripples / My computer is too slow / Shaders are all off
Torley Linden: Psyra, that reminds me of The Grudge parody in Scary Movie 4.
Evangeline Martinek: mkay.. peeps, be well
Marianne McCann: Bye Bye!!
Evangeline Martinek: nice sitting in with you all
Psyra Extraordinaire: Byeeeee.
Dimitrio Lewis: A couple of people questioned the "second life's machinima studio" tag. It referred to the community rather than the software, and there was some confusion. I'll have to think of something better for the next one :P
Arawn Spitteler: Script run-time error
Arawn Spitteler: Stack-Heap Collision
Torley Linden: Mari, are you making a book of this?
Pinky Ebbage: Take care, Evangeline
Evangeline Martinek: TTFN hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo!!!
Torley Linden: Dimi: Well, on the plus side, at least it generates reactions and allows you to explain it...
Psyra Extraordinaire: May your looting be plentiful!
Torley Linden: :)
Marianne McCann: I kinda did them as a goof, but dat might be a fun idea
Pinky Ebbage: Is that a Phoenix, Psyra?
Rock Pond Pose ball: llStopAnimation: Script trying to stop animations but agent not found
Psyra Extraordinaire: It doesn't say 'Grendel's Rooster' up there. :>
Torley Linden: Hahaha.
Pinky Ebbage giggles
Torley Linden: A phoenix in every fireplace!
Marianne McCann laughs
Pinky Ebbage blushes deeply
Pinky Ebbage: Some look like roosters
Pinky Ebbage grins
Pinky Ebbage: lol
Psyra Extraordinaire: Some cultures, mine's a mix of cultures. :D
Daten Thielt: lol ok im off got games to script, ill sent a notecard when its ready torley :D ByedBye all
Pinky Ebbage: Take care, Daten
Chase Marellan: bye daten
Marianne McCann: Have fun, Daten!
Marianne McCann: I'm off to camp this weekend, m'self
Pinky Ebbage: I have most of my alt AVs from Grendel's
Psyra Extraordinaire: Real camping I hope?
Psyra Extraordinaire: And not in a chair? ;D
Marianne McCann: Nope. In-world, Camp HardKNock for kids
Psyra Extraordinaire: Awww.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Doesn't compare, that's cheating. :.
Dimitrio Lewis: lol
Chase Marellan: Cool
JetZep Zabelin: i probably should go camping again too lol
Psyra Extraordinaire: You still get all the comforts of home. :D
Dimitrio Lewis: Imagine if people wore spinning ad signs over their heads for money. That would be awful :P
Psyra Extraordinaire: REAL camping is about sleeping on GRASS and STICKS under the STARS. :D
Marianne McCann: I have ten Lindens / twenty-eight hours in a chair / I play "Second Life"
Marianne McCann: Ya, we get cabins an stuff, but it's a sleepover away from home kinda camp
Moard Ling: whats the best rate youve seen for camping
Pinky Ebbage: Been there, done that, don't wanna sleep in the rain this weekend, in the soggy grass, myself
Torley Linden: Hahahaha.
Torley Linden: I want to set up some bots on my land...
Torley Linden: just a couple...
Marianne McCann: Ya, it's seriously wret and cold here IRL
Torley Linden: and have them do interesting things.
JetZep Zabelin: lol
Chase Marellan: hehehehe
Chase Marellan: such as?
Marianne McCann: wet*
Moard Ling: wait for glastonbury
Torley Linden: Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations for bot programs?
JetZep Zabelin: that would be interesting
Torley Linden: Well, like have them be actors, and make this place more animated.
Torley Linden: (And NO I am not gonna rez 40 camping chairs on my own land.)
Dimitrio Lewis: lol
Pinky Ebbage giggles to Torley
Psyra Extraordinaire: I've made silly systems to get groups of things to talk to each other. I have this flock of birds in Avaria that all chat with each other, but it's all prescripted. :(
Psyra Extraordinaire: I wish I could build something into them like MegaHAL.
Torley Linden: Bots are tools, and not tools in the insultive sense, but there are a lot of usages for them which don't annoy/anger people and have yet to be explored.
JetZep Zabelin: have the do like chores around the place and somehow interact when they bump
JetZep Zabelin: lol
Pinky Ebbage: Awww, why not, Torley? that would be a good place, say 100 lidnes per minute camping chairs?
Torley Linden: JetZep, haha, yes, something like that.
Pinky Ebbage: lindens
Pinky Ebbage grins
Torley Linden: Pinky: HAHAH, I don't need the traffic. But...
Torley Linden: ;)
Randal Kline: sales assistance
Pinky Ebbage: *mews*
JetZep Zabelin: wow
Pinky Ebbage: purrrs happily =^.^=
Moard Ling: i;ve got a bot i run for my partner
Moard Ling: ye sdear
Moard Ling: no dear
Moard Ling: lets go shopping
Moard Ling: nice shoes
Pinky Ebbage giggles
Torley Linden: HAHAHAHA.
Torley Linden: :D
JetZep Zabelin: maybe chat bots
Psyra Extraordinaire: No, this doesn't make you look fat
Marianne McCann: I tink folks have a fear of 'bots. I dunno if it's from "copybot" or jes a "uncanny valley" side effect
Torley Linden: I think it'd be fun to have a bot based on my conversational routines.
Torley Linden: That would "learn" over time.
Moard Ling: have to mispeell irreuglary as well :)
Torley Linden: Mari, yeah, I think it's somewhat of both...
Torley Linden: fear of what people don't understand.
JetZep Zabelin: they have those scripts.. and they learn from what people say to them
Moard Ling: my bot has never been prodded
JetZep Zabelin: I'm sure they could be brought into lsl somehow
Moard Ling: everywhere i go soemeon attacks me with a a bot stick
Torley Linden: The "copybot" wave was rather intriguing in that... it surged very hotly, then a few weeks later, there were but 3 matches in Search for "copybot". Whereas before there were hundreds.
Marianne McCann: True, Torley. A pretty deep set human thing, that
Torley Linden: Time has a strange effect on what affects us.
Randal Kline: moard: could be your tag that you wore
Pinky Ebbage: irregular
Pinky Ebbage: Hmm
Psyra Extraordinaire @Korbins, "Negative, I am a meat popsicle."
Pinky Ebbage: I dunno
Moard Ling: lol never see my tag
Torley Linden: "Fight or flight", and unfortunately, some people would rather criticize and show contempt than LEARN.
ROMSEY Homewood: time is the fire in which we burn!
blogHUD Messenger: Your image post has arrived at []: see
Torley Linden: "Ugly bags of mostly water", isn't that how Morbo describes humans?
Torley Linden: ROMSEY: BONUS POINTS for BLADE RUNNER reference!
Pinky Ebbage: I'd rather learn, Torley
Psyra Extraordinaire: Ugly pink bags of mostly-water.
Pinky Ebbage: Oh my
Marianne McCann: Ya, people went sorta crazy. Like "monsters on Mulberry Street" crazy
ROMSEY Homewood: dang!
Torley Linden: Great, thanks Psyra.
Igel Hawks: hehe
Torley Linden: Mari: I like Twilight Zone a lot.
Torley Linden: There's a lot of paranoia in this world...
Marianne McCann: Torley - I'm a Twilight Zone geek. It's why I'm part of a store called "Kick The Can"
ROMSEY Homewood: Paranoi is the fire in which we burn...ha!
JetZep Zabelin: Thats a gesture i need to find or make.. the twilight zone
Marianne McCann: (Even if my own store name is a Hudsucker Proxy reference)
Torley Linden: Hahah Mari, oh great, that's good to know.
Torley Linden: The Twilight Zone has such a distinctive theme. Within 2 seconds, you can recognize the music.
Torley Linden: I think that's the hallmark of recognizability.
Moard Ling: and what a great pinball - with thte gumball
Psyra Extraordinaire: /twilight zone
Torley Linden: I'm reading a book right now by Malcolm Gladwell, it's called Blink, and it's about making quick, accurate decisions/judgments.
Psyra Extraordinaire: /twilight zone
Psyra Extraordinaire: Okay, ignore that. :D
Marianne McCann: Oh, I *love* blink., Great book
Pinky Ebbage smiles
JetZep Zabelin: sounds like a book i need to read
Pinky Ebbage: There it is
Moard Ling: five characters in search of an exit ... love it
Arawn Spitteler thinks his Teeter Totter could use Marianne's imagination, and Marianne's sign could use a Teeter Totter
Torley Linden: It has some controversial content, and people wonder about challenging conventional wisdom like "How could you possibly know something in 2 secs that you'd expect to learn over a longer period of time?", but that's part of why it's so fascinating.
JetZep Zabelin: i make too many mistakes in quice decisions/judements
Marianne McCann: Moard - another fave of mine, though my all time fave is prob'ly "Willoughby"
Torley Linden: Routinely in work I look for ways to automate/simplify processes.
Torley Linden: I also like Outer Limits. I guess I'm a fan of twist endings in general.
ROMSEY Homewood: Outer Limits (original) was spooky
Pinky Ebbage: Those shows are rather ancient in terms of television, I guess, I saw them first run, uhm
Pinky Ebbage grins
Dimitrio Lewis: Twist endings always feel very artistic
JetZep Zabelin: hehe
Chase Marellan: Twilight zone is one of those things that knowing somebody's favorite gives you insight into their psyche. :)
Marianne McCann: Romsey - when I was a RL kid, the opener of that should would freak me out someting fierce
Moard Ling: lol do not adjust your set
Moard Ling: verticla hold in todays world :)
JetZep Zabelin: when you were a RL kid.. ;)
Torley Linden: I just don't like when I can figure out the ending in advance; then that sense of anticipation is lost for me and I prolly stop watching the movie right there.
JetZep Zabelin: i like that
Marianne McCann: Chase - Kick The Can, Willoughby, and the one with "Aunt Tea". Now you know all you need abotu me /me winks
Torley Linden: Rod Serling had such a rich voice for narration too.
Moard Ling: I watched tyhe prestige and was shoutign at the screen it was so obvious
Torley Linden: I also watched another scifi show he narrated, Night Gallery.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Kick the Can's a favorite. :D
Pinky Ebbage: One movie that did grab one was Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"
Chase Marellan: hahahaha.... Interestingly, those are some of my wife's faves too.
Marianne McCann: (I also like the four episodes with Jack Klugman in them, but I like his work in em)
Psyra Extraordinaire: Muahahaa.
Moard Ling: i love vertigo - give away th eploty half way through
Torley Linden: Hitchcock had such a unique directorial style... I used to watch the TV shorts presented by him too.
Dimitrio Lewis: It would be funny if historical movies had alternative twist endings on the dvd... Hitler doesn't die, the other side wins a war, etc
Marianne McCann: Oh ya. I have a friend who was *on* Night Gallery. Cool show
Chase Marellan: I like Willoughby the best, I think, and One for the Angels, and Jesse Carter, and ... the one with the old man who's really an alien prince.
Moard Ling: mind you B5 never recov ered form endign the sahdow war mid season
Psyra Extraordinaire: That's one of the reasons I usually hate prequels, you usually know who will live and die.
Pinky Ebbage: Oh yes, Torley, one of my favorites in movies and such
Torley Linden: Mari: Oh, neat.
Marianne McCann: Moard - My fave of Hitchcock is The 39 Steps.
Torley Linden: We are enthused about suspenseful cinema here!
Igel Hawks: Hi Alste
AIste Boa: hi ^^
Chase Marellan: I love The Third Man
Pinky Ebbage: Well, there we are, get bots that give one thrills and suspense then :-)
Marianne McCann: Chase! Oh! How did I forget that one? The old man/prince one is another old fave
Pinky Ebbage grins
Torley Linden: Psyra: I'd like to see a prequel that would blow my mind by way of revealing it was an alternate timeline at the end, and different people live/die. But, having said that, it's safe to say I now anticipate such a possibility, rendering such surprises moot.
Psyra Extraordinaire: I liked the *original* The Hitcher. the '81 version.
Randal Kline: you guys have large memory storage to remember so much
Moard Ling: hitch rock i have his book of itnerviews
Chase Marellan: Mari: :)(
Marianne McCann: Chase - especially the zither music /me winks
Psyra Extraordinaire: I think they're doing that with Total Recall.
Sandro Felisimo: hi^^
Chase Marellan: Oh yeah!
Chase Marellan: absolutely. :)
Psyra Extraordinaire: Considering that one is still confusing as to what happened in the ORIGINAL movie. ;D
User not online - inventory has been saved.
User not online - inventory has been saved.
Moard Ling: mind you twin peaks the film was good, you knew the ending and it was alogn way downhill to get there
Psyra Extraordinaire: But with no Arnie it won't be the same.
Marianne McCann: I have Karas' Third Man theme on the iPod. Good stuff
Torley Linden: David Lynch has a very confusing but distinctive style.
Torley Linden: I laughed at what David Lynch had to say about the iPhone.
Chase Marellan: which was?
Torley Linden:
Torley Linden: :D
Psyra Extraordinaire: I've pondered goign to see Cloverfield, but suspect it would be rather campy.
Torley Linden: May not be suitable for younger viewers.
Torley Linden: I spoiled Cloverfield by reading Wikipedia.
Randal Kline: motion sickness
Torley Linden: My main interest with it was the hand-held footage and good marketing. As for the movie itself, I haven't seen it, so I can't be a good judge.
Marianne McCann: That's one I've not yet seen
Pinky Ebbage: lol
Moard Ling: i understood SAWIII BY reading wikipedia
Pinky Ebbage: I like that one, Torley!!
Torley Linden: =o)
Chase Marellan: HAHAHAHAHA.... sorry, you're right, that David Lynch clip is classic
Psyra Extraordinaire: Heehee.
Psyra Extraordinaire: Very true.
JetZep Zabelin: rofl
Pinky Ebbage: He is soooooo correct, David Lynch
Psyra Extraordinaire: Same with zero-day theatre cam movie pirates.
Chase Marellan: absolutely!
Torley Linden: Ahhh it's been so good being with each and all of you. I've got to go for now, and continue my work. I'll return at 2 PM later today!
Torley Linden: Thanks so much for coming here! :D
Chase Marellan: Bye, Torley!
Harleen Gretzky: bye Torley :)
Chase Marellan: Thanks for having us...
ROMSEY Homewood: Nice to see you again Torley TC :O)))
JetZep Zabelin: C you again Torley
Marianne McCann: Bye Bye!!
Torley Linden: Bye, and hope if I don't see you again before the weekend, have a memorable and rewarding time. =^_^= *waves and smiles*
Pinky Ebbage: Take care, Torley, glad to see ya again!
Marianne McCann: Have a fun day, Totorley!
Pinky Ebbage smiles

Pinky Ebbage: Don't work too hard

Kamael Xevious: Just WL
Marianne McCann: Does f'r me, but I 'm havin' my issues nowadays with it
Daedalus Young: I still need to try the newest
Torley Linden: *nods*
Torley Linden: What graphics card are you on, Kam?
Marianne McCann: The alpha things rendering opaque is drivin me nutso
Kamael Xevious: The 7950 with 1GB memory
Torley Linden: Mari, yeah, it seems like that got worse instead of better...
Daedalus Young: is that why I heard people complain their facelights are all weird?
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: hi!
Daedalus Young: hi
Marianne McCann: Daedalus - prob'ly. Dat an the change in how much light lights give in daytime
Torley Linden: The downside of a facelight, as BigPapi Linden will be happy to point out, is there can only be 6 OpenGL local lights in a scene at once, and you and a few friends using facelights will quickly use all of them up.
Daedalus Young: yes
Daedalus Young: I'll have to go make RL facelight rigs :P
Torley Linden: I think they are fine for focused photography, tho.
Marianne McCann: Me uses the Mysti's light only rarely, and usually jes adjusts her settings
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: the new windlight is cool
Torley Linden: WindLight is getting closer to a Release Candidate viewer... we're continuing to identify problems with certain kinds of hardware.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i had to upgrade
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i couldnt take crashing anymore
Squirrel Wood: Hellu Torley .)
Kamael Xevious: The 7950 has been problematic from early on with WL too, I know.
Marianne McCann: I'm gettin a fair number of bad crashes, an my sis is getting totally missing water with atmospheric shaders on. I still gotta put it on the JIRA
Squirrel Wood: 7950gt here... no problems
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: its ram i bet
Kamael Xevious: I'm on a gxd...
Kamael Xevious: er gx.
Kamael Xevious: And XP X64
Squirrel Wood: then I would blame xp 64
Kamael Xevious: That is my guess, actually. . .not the card at all.
Torley Linden: Those of you on ATI cards and WindLight, for the time being, we recommend you use the 7.10 drivers, 8.1s and other newer releases are sadly broken... we're working with ATI about it.
Marianne McCann: Even with the few glitches, I wouldn't traded WL for the world!
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: its like a battle of semi conductor giants!
Daedalus Young: oh hmm, last time I checked the ATI site said I can't have the card I currently have
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: invidia are winning
Daedalus Young: is not a Mac card they say
Daedalus Young: so they don't even have drivers for it
Daedalus Young: or at least that's how I understood it
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i heard a rumour that soon mac os will be released on a disc that will install on any intel machine
Torley Linden: Handmadeandroid: Officially, or otherwise?
Marianne McCann: I've heard dat rumor for ages
Daedalus Young: should be possible
Marianne McCann loves Leopard, and runs it at home
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: well my lecturer is very well connected, he put the BBC servers in for all the video editing stuff when they switched to final cut, so who knows *shrugs*
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: they would wipe the board
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: lol
CeeJay Tigerpaw: I saw a web site once that had what appeared to be instructions for making a Leopard boot CD that would boot on any Windows Intel box, but I did not try it.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i wrote on your blog entry about your upgrade winging about windows torley and leaving some advice to would be upgraders
Marianne McCann: CeeJay - the x86 project
Torley Linden: I know there are some, ahem, "unofficial" ways to run OS X on Intel/AMD machines...
CeeJay Tigerpaw: I think Marianne is correct.
Torley Linden: But I doubt Apple themselves would do so anytime soon.
Torley Linden: OSX86 project.
Marianne McCann grins
blogHUD Messenger: Your image post has arrived at []: see
Torley Linden:
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i think they will
Torley Linden: Handmade: Why do you think that?
CeeJay Tigerpaw: I have a few friends at Apple who way that if you have a WinBox running Leopard they had better not hear about it.
Torley Linden: I don't dismiss the possibility, but it'd be more of a surprise to me than... say, Intel-based Macs. ;)
Marianne McCann: Apple makes a lot of money with a hardware/software combo
Multi Chair Crate v1.0.42 (TORLEY MOD) whispers: Maximum number of chairs reached, please rez another Multi Chair table.
Torley Linden: The upside of widespread OS X adoption on non-Apple-made-hardware has often been touted as one of the upsides.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: becuase it makes perfect sense, we can get as the hobbyist absolutely fantastic kit, state of the art bus speeds etc, and then we put windows on, and its crummy, so anyone who essentially isnt gaming and say running graphics applications doesnt want to splash out on a power mac when they know they can build the equivelent hardware for a 1/5th of price
Torley Linden: Did anyone participate in MacHeist?
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: and i dont feel my lecturer would make up a wild statement
Squirrel Wood: Macophobia :p
Marianne McCann: Me, I jes hafta get boot camp or whatever on mines
Torley Linden: It would be a surprising move...
Torley Linden: *remembers when there were Mac clones*
CeeJay Tigerpaw: Ah, yes, the Frankin...
Marianne McCann: Ya. Jobs killed the clones
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: if i wanted to test the water first id virally make it possible and test it on a load of loyal mac-in-nerds first and then perhaps move it to beta
CeeJay Tigerpaw: *Franklin
Torley Linden: I once wrote Steve Jobs...
Marianne McCann: Largely over wanting that hardware/software combo
Torley Linden: asking what he had for breakfast.
Torley Linden: And his reply, almost exactly, was:
Torley Linden: "I don't eat breakfast. Best, Steve."
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: lol
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: caffeine addict
Torley Linden: Years later, as I find myself not having lunch, my memory harkens back to that brief-but-influential exchange.
Squirrel Wood: he does eat breakfast.
Squirrel Wood: first meal of the day is breakfast. even if its lunch. or dinner. :p
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: om gosh lol
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: have you seen whos taking over from gates this year?
Marianne McCann: /meonly rarely has breakfast, but is definitely not steve jobs
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: this man
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: LOL
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: wacth that and try not to laugh
Squirrel Wood just wants two million in cash on her bank account...
Torley Linden: Hahaha.
Torley Linden: Steve Ballmer, he's really energetic.
Torley Linden: I remember seeing him in that Windows 1.0 ad...
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i watch that every week
Torley Linden: Handmade, does it inspire you to do great things?
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: as kind of personal pscho therapy
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: no
Torley Linden: OK, at least it has some therapeutic effect. Ha ha!
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i just go 'handmade theres a man out of control, you are ok'
floatythingy AO: 3347 bytes free
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: he probably has a cupboard entirely filled with chinos and blue shirts whicch are all tagged and on a spread sheet
Torley Linden: Oh my gosh, that sucked! SL was eating like 1.5+ GB of memory...
Torley Linden: and then I ran into a SmartHeap error.
Torley Linden: Anyone else see that?
Sougent Harrop: That little?
Torley Linden: X_X
Sougent Harrop: ;)
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: 2.22
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: 2.22gb
Torley Linden: SL, don't gobble my RAM like a turkey!
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: thats also why mac os would win, windows can only see 4gb
Torley Linden: Handmade: That's what your viewer's currently using? :O
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: thats including the graphics memory
Daedalus Young: they'll have to fix that yeah
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: 2.23 gb ram 47% processor
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: :|
Torley Linden: Oh.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: *stands back from computer*
Torley Linden: <— SmartHeap errors.
Shockwave Plasma: I've seen the tempature on my CPU go from 40c to 50 c with in 2 minutes of starting UP SL
Daedalus Young: can't they still use 8GB Ram and just flip it around? So Windoze may see only 4, but as they flip which part Win is looking at, they still have 8?
Daedalus Young: I know it worked that way somewhat in my old MSX
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: the entry about critical borderline is interesting
Torley Linden: Wow Shockwave, that is a cool leopard print.
Shockwave Plasma: I've given up being a pirate for while
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: thats a new swap page method the new chipsets support
Shockwave Plasma: You might have seen Codebastard had some other ideas :-)
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: torley do you think this kind of environment is heading towards a totally immersive experience as in full VR?
Torley Linden: Handmade, Second Life, you mean?
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: well mass populated online stuff in general
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: secondife amongst others
Torley Linden: Hmmm... how you define "immersion" depends on who you are.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: well all your senses
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: touch smell 360deg environment
Torley Linden: Some people are very uncomfortable/fear that, so I don't think everyone wants it. But some definitely are anticipating it.
Shockwave Plasma: Handmade ..Do you mean the full body suit ..helmet etc ?
Squirrel Wood: ^^
Daedalus Young: and our bodies in some pod, powering the Grid... :P
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i dont know what form it would take
Torley Linden: Remember when there was a lot of hype about interactive movies with smell-o-vision and that sorta stuff?
Sougent Harrop: It's easier to jsut go outside.......
Torley Linden: And turns out a lot of people just wanted to sit back and watch a movie.
Torley Linden: Haha Squirrel, I saw that earlier.
Torley Linden: That was a shocking reaction.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: probably loads of crystals all linked together lol
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: on a world wide machine grid
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: with quantum processing
Torley Linden: Loads of crystals all linked together sounds like something out of a Final Fantasy game.
Torley Linden: Some supercomputer at the core of a planet...
Torley Linden: with an evil tyrant who's harnessed the power of the cosmos to enslave the race...
Torley Linden: and the nature spirits that are awakening to make things right.
Marianne McCann: Ya. It really comes down to ease of use more than anything. You can do it, but the way VR is handled today with helmets an stuff is only gonna appeal to the die hard folks
Sougent Harrop: Sounds like a Heinlen book
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: well a cpu is essentially a slice of crystal isnt it, well silicone which is a glass cystal
Squirrel Wood: a cpu actually is made of sand :p
Torley Linden: VR helmets look dorky to a lot of people. Generally, non-technical folk enjoy their technology when they don't perceive it as such... when it's seamless, for example. And lightweight, and "transparent".
Torley Linden: Handmade: Yes, interesting how that works...
Torley Linden: "Big and bulky" generally isn't an attractive way to market tech.
Harleen Gretzky: Or maybe even the Matrix
CeeJay Tigerpaw: Lightweight VR glasses should be possible, and might be made to look cool.
Squirrel Wood: and sand in itself is actually stone.... and minerals and... stuff.
Torley Linden: CeeJay: I'd like if the footprint of my current glasses could be VR.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: yes which originally was a melt from a volvano
Torley Linden: Squirrel: Ahhh what we take form the earth!
Torley Linden: It's so intriguing, eh?
Marianne McCann: I tink it's possible. I mean, MP3 players were a minimal part of the market at one time
Shockwave Plasma: there have been plans to make laser projecters that go in glasses, adn use the retina as the screen
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: unless its white sand that predominatel shell so a calcate
Marianne McCann: 'til they was made cool *and* easy
Torley Linden: Have any of you seen the video, The Story of Stuff? I don't agree with all points, but it's rather thought-provoking.
Torley Linden: I see we have some chemical thinkers here.
Sougent Harrop: Just link in some of the stuff that fellow is doing with the Wii hacks.
Torley Linden: , it's 20-min. if you have time later. I like the presentation style.
CeeJay Tigerpaw: I expect it is just a matter of really clever optics to project an image onto the field of view of, say a good pair of wraparound sunglasses.
Sougent Harrop: Head tracking
Torley Linden: Ohhh there was a really cool SL video recently with head tracking...
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: or vibrations straight into the optic nerve
Squirrel Wood: <= 2 hour movie that *will* make you think. guaranteed. ^^
CeeJay Tigerpaw: That requires you to be close to a base station, but the gizmo on the gadget is small.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: lol and hide in a cupboard :|
Sougent Harrop: Are you familiar with this guy who hacks the Wiimote and does stuff with it? He did a head tracking thing
Torley Linden: <— Good vid.
Torley Linden: Sougent: Got a link?
Marianne McCann: I do wish I had more direct control of my avvie. Something like AV puppeteering, of course
Torley Linden: Squirrel: I haven't seen all of that, just a preview, but my brother loves that vid!
floatythingy AO: 3347 bytes free
Sougent Harrop: This guy is really pointing the way to some neat stuff for the future
Squirrel Wood: wb wb
Torley Linden: Pardon, crashed again, and thanks!
CeeJay Tigerpaw: Another option for 3D is a fish tank view, in which you swap frames on the screen in sync with switching transparencies of a pair of LCD viewer goggles.
Torley Linden: What'd I miss?
There is no suitable surface to sit on, try another spot.
Al Sonic: Hello again ^_^
Sougent Harrop: Did you miss my link?
Al Sonic: Very little; it almost went silent.
Torley Linden: Yes, sadly I missed it.
Sougent Harrop:
Torley Linden: The funny thing about all successful cool technologies is, eventually the novelty wears off and they become everyday parts of people's lives... like iPods.
Al Sonic: Yeah that though.
Torley Linden: *checks it out*
Torley Linden: Whoa, I think I've seen some of these Wii vids before.
Shockwave Plasma: I asked if there was someway for Lindens who are goingto miss office hours to "leave a note" or someting
Torley Linden: He really likes that Wiimote. :)
Torley Linden: (Wiimote is such a fun word to say.)
Multi Chair Crate v1.0.42 (TORLEY MOD) whispers: Maximum number of chairs reached, please rez another Multi Chair table.
Sougent Harrop: Watch the video on the head tracking and just imagine that with SL
Torley Linden: Shockwave: I've been looking for a more automated way myself, I hate leaving people waiting... I usually announce it on my wiki page because changing textures was a pain, but there's prolly a better way.
Torley Linden: I hesitate to use XyText billboard...
Torley Linden: as cool as they are, they use many prims.
Daedalus Young: we'd need multi-texturable prims for that
Torley Linden: Sougent, did you see that other YouTube link I pasted back up?
Dave Sparrow gave you letter to SL.
Sougent Harrop: I have it up, haven't watched it yet
Torley Linden: =)
Torley Linden: Oh gosh, it went so quiet again!
Daedalus Young: it did...
Marianne McCann: I had a lotta whisperin' in my ear
Sougent Harrop: So, we need SL viewer for the Wii and some head tracking goggles and finger tracking like on that website....
Marianne McCann giggles
Torley Linden: You could almost hear a prim drop...
First Prim: drop
Torley Linden: Sougent: Put all the pieces together, and what do ya get... *BEWM!*
Dreamscape's Dance Bracelet: OWENIMATIONS DUO DANCER v3.4 -- type /99help for instructions
Al Sonic: I really really loved your fast-paced video Torley.
Torley Linden: Thanks Al, the one on my blog where I'm racing through a bunch of stuff?
Al Sonic: Heh, there's a reason I'm a Sonic fan.
Torley Linden: Haha.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i love sonic
Jason Swain: I have a question but I am not sure if there is a solution. The inworld maps show a texture via UUID, is there a way of finding the UUID for a given SIM?
Torley Linden: Yeah, I like timelapse effects.
Torley Linden: I used to watch the Sonic cartoon.
Al Sonic: You? ^_^
Torley Linden: Jason, great question I've heard before. I don't know offhand how to do that.
Marianne McCann: Ooh, dat would be interesting, Jason
Torley Linden: I'm actually curious who the leading Resident cartographers are right now...
Torley Linden: Dyne Talamasca did some work in that area way back, she made a very impressive map.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i did think of writing down a guide
Torley Linden: Cadroe Murphy has long held a fascination with such things, too.
Marianne McCann: Torley - Carl Metropolitan has some great map kiosks in NCI
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: theres some lush places on the old continents
Shockwave Plasma: I thik there was something on New world notes last week abuot the map
Torley Linden: Mari: Oooh like the early 2003 ones?
Torley Linden: Shockwave, yeah, I saw that, the map compiled by SignpostMarv.
Torley Linden: Really extensive.
Marianne McCann: Torley - no, modern, and regularly updated, of mainland
Sougent Harrop: the SLURL map is cool IMO, just wish it were clicable
Torley Linden: Amazing how big Second Life has gotten.
Torley Linden: Mari: Ahhh.
Jason Swain: Could you point me in the direction of a person/resource that might know?
Marianne McCann: There's copies of both of his, Torley
Alpha Prim: awieeee that hurts
Marianne McCann gave you Kiosk - LL Mainland Continents.
Torley Linden: Jason: While I don't know for sure who might be an authority on this, I'd try asking the two Resis I named earlier, and any dev who holds office hours... like Zero.
Torley Linden: The World Map used to have "ownership" by a given Linden...
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i heard a rummour about some kind of advanced texture mapping going to be introduced in the sometime future torley?
Torley Linden: but hasn't in a long time that I'm aware of.
Torley Linden: Handmade: Who's the source of your rumor, and what's their quote?
Jason Swain: Will do, Thanks for the pointers Torley :)
Torley Linden: You're welcome Jason, best of hope with it.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: a friend
Torley Linden: I usually can't put much stock in rumors, I like to have a source named to establish context and credence. :) So I'd need to know more about what your friend said to have a better understanding!
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: something along the lines of texture maps which would reflect light in certain ways much like the technology video games use
Torley Linden: I can broadly say that we do *want* to have an advanced materials system in the future, including advanced texture mapping, yes.
Torley Linden: But no work has been done on that yet, it's an idea for a future phase... Team WindLight mentioned this several times at office hours.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i see
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: well thats exciting isnt it
Torley Linden: So if that's what your friend heard, then yes, it's accurate we'd like to get to that.
Al Sonic: That's likely to be what it was a reference to.
Torley Linden: :-)
Torley Linden: But it's currently undefined as to when that will happen.
Shockwave Plasma: Philip said html on a prim probably by march
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: id like to see that would add a nice layer of detail
Shockwave Plasma: or was it May?
Torley Linden: "HTML on a prim" is currently taking the name of the "parcel media" project I believe.
Jurin Juran gave you SL World Maps Throughout Time.
Al Sonic: Appropriate.
Torley Linden: And that's continued to be worked on internally...
Shockwave Plasma: he did say HTML on a Prim --ish
Torley Linden: It'll be exciting to have more dynamic surfaces, whether they look better, or all-out have new functionalities.
Citizen Dreamscape: Excuse me, I have a question about that.
Shockwave Plasma: It was the Davos interview on SLNN
Torley Linden: Sure Citizen, please ask.
Sougent Harrop wants the same prim limits in SL that he has in RL......
Citizen Dreamscape: I was wondering about the "HTML on a prim" thing - will these be support for stuff like Flash or Shockwave?
Citizen Dreamscape: *there
Citizen Dreamscape: Or straight HTML?
Torley Linden: Citizen, I'm not sure of that yet. That's the *hope* but I don't personally know if that's possible.
Al Sonic: Didn't they say that was the last thing they're struggling with?
Shockwave Plasma: I need al the support I can get
Torley Linden: I would love to have Flash video like YouTube inworld...
Citizen Dreamscape: LOL
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: html is a browser language surely
EquiBrad Voom: omg flash everywhere would make the place look spiffy :)
Torley Linden: that's one thing touted about Kaneva, "Ohhh watch YouTube movies together inworld!" that I want.
Sougent Harrop: Or Sliverlight for thaat matter....
Citizen Dreamscape: WEll, I write Flash games and LSL games and it would be easier in many respects to just "paint a prim" with the Flash. :-)
Torley Linden: Hehehe.
Daedalus Young: for a lot of things that'll save prims too
Torley Linden: That's great to hear, Citizen.
Daedalus Young: like those slingo-things
Torley Linden: I'd like cool control surfaces...
Torley Linden: Yeah, Daed, my feelings too.
Torley Linden: A lot of very awesome Flash games are out there.
Rocky Merosi: Heya Torley :P
Torley Linden: Heya Rocky!
EquiBrad Voom: well if ll get html ability from mozilla libraries, flash compatibility will come with it?
Daedalus Young: flash doesn't seem to work in the SL built-in browser for me :/
Torley Linden: I do know I'll be helping with communication of several key features later this year (including some stuff I can't talk about right now) so I'll know more in due time.
Citizen Dreamscape: OOoohhh. unspeakable stuff. :-)
Torley Linden: Daed: There's a hack around that, I think, but it's kludgy... Callum Linden explained it to me some time ago.
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: will we be getting morer prims :P
Torley Linden: Ha ha, mysteries.
Daedalus Young: ahh
Daedalus Young: well I don't ever use it really, it's only on web tabs in profiles
Squirrel Wood: mysterious mysteries!
Daedalus Young: though when it comes to Flash-on-a-Prim
Sougent Harrop: Speaking of more prims, do you think that Havok4 will make it possible to increase the prim limits some?
Torley Linden: "Flash-on-a-Prim" had better not be "Flash-in-a-Pan"!
Daedalus Young: lol
Al Sonic: XD
Marianne McCann can't wait to see what the surprises are
Torley Linden: Sougent, myself, I don't know. Andrew likely would, though.
blogHUD Messenger: Your image post has arrived at []: see
Multi Gadget v1.52.0 by Timeless Prototype
Rocky Merosi: Actually they posted about that in the havok4 blog :P
Alpha Prim:
Torley Linden: Rocky: Oh, sharp! Where did you see it?
Marianne McCann: I did read dat Mega prims are limited to 256 nowadays
Squirrel Wood: Torley, All the stuff you can't talk about yet - make sure it is pink or green ^^
Daedalus Young: well more prims also brings the matter of more data transfer
Marianne McCann: on the Havok 4 servers
Rocky Merosi: they say no because its much more than physics that prims affect
Torley Linden: Squirrel: Hahaha.
Daedalus Young: not only a physics thing
Rocky Merosi: my sim runs havok4 right now and its much better performing :)
Torley Linden: Rocky: That makes sense from a rendering perspective too...
Rocky Merosi: let me grab the link
Squirrel Wood: Oh yes. Havok4 makes griefers unhappy ^^
Torley Linden: and in general a lot of people need to be better educated about healthy usage of prims & textures.
Daedalus Young: hehe
Sougent Harrop: Should make them happy Squirrel, new challenge for them
Citizen Dreamscape shuffles feet guiltily...
Torley Linden: We need to have better documentation about that, I believe.
Daedalus Young: in the future, instead of virus scanners we may have griefing scanners
Harleen Gretzky: Havok 4 blog?
Daedalus Young: when a script operates in a region, the region checks if it's not a griefing device :P
Torley Linden: Someday, 1024x1024 textures will be puny, but until then, it's good to practice some economy.
Squirrel Wood: healthy usage of prims & textures makes a good theme for a video blog ^^
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: i never use 1024 textures lol
Torley Linden: Daed, yeah, and looks into the scripts for the "signatures" of the objects...
Daedalus Young: I used 1024x1024 textures for my photos in the Second Arts Photography building
Daedalus Young: but still economically, as 3 textures make up 7 photos :)
Rocky Merosi: Read comment 30 for info on why prims wont be increased with havok4 :)
Sougent Harrop: Well, prim conservation is not without the cost of detail and realism.
Torley Linden: Daed: Yah, there are some subtleties, and that's a good example.
Torley Linden: Thanks for finding that, Rocky!
Rocky Merosi: you bet :) I am all over this havok4 thing :)
Torley Linden: :D
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: but the nature of the environment, people get more land to have more prims
Torley Linden: Glad to hear it, I'm happy Havok4 is public at last and rolling onto Second Life.
Daedalus Young: I only tried it at the Beta grid, where sandboxes were filled with 10x10x10 random prims
Rocky Merosi: Yeah my sims performance is so much better with it
Sougent Harrop: Oh for the day that you can have the same number of prims in SL as you do in only by space
Rocky Merosi: lol
Torley Linden: I had great fun dumping a bunch of physical objects and watching region performance be resilient.
Rocky Merosi: Well if you need a havok sandbox on the main grid to play at, I have one on my sim
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: yeah my home sim is being beta tested H4
Marianne McCann: Rocky - may I have a LM to it?
Sougent Harrop: I watched an experiment on a Havok4 sim with 1024 physical prims in a tower, falling all over
Torley Linden: Ohh you're an early adopter Handmade?
Rocky Merosi: I can give you a landmark to my lucky chair shop thats right next to it but I dont actually have a landmark for the sandbox
Marianne McCann: Thankoo
Torley Linden: Citizen, great Jawa av. I saw one awhile ago but it wasn't put together too well, but yours, with the sculpties, looks great!
Rocky Merosi: Hey Torley have you got a chance to check out my lucky chair heaven yet?
Citizen Dreamscape: I'd love to take the credit, but I cannot.
Torley Linden: It's okay, at the very least, you know you have good taste.
Marianne McCann: Time f'r me to run Have fun!
Marianne McCann: Bye Bye!!
Citizen Dreamscape: LOL. Thanks.
Jurin Juran: bye Marianne
Daedalus Young: bye
Citizen Dreamscape: It was made by Hippi Hammerer. (Sorry about the jumping about - I was trying to right-click my hood. :-) )
Torley Linden: S'okay!
Rocky Merosi pokes Torley :P
Citizen Dreamscape: OOh! Chair!
Multi Chair Crate v1.0.42 (TORLEY MOD) whispers: Maximum number of chairs reached, please rez another Multi Chair table.
Torley Linden: Oh Rocky, sorry, I haven't, did you send me a landmark before?
Torley Linden: I don't remember if you did/didn't.
Rocky Merosi: Yep I can send you another if you would like :)
Torley Linden: Yes please, pardon for forgetting!
Rocky Merosi gave you Magical Freebies and More!! 700, The Magic Soapbox (132, 139,.
Torley Linden: Great, thanks.
Rocky Merosi: heehe I dont sell anything there personally :P just give things away :)
Torley Linden: :D
Watermelon Slice whispers: Mmm!
Rocky Merosi: mmmmmmmmm
Torley Linden: Ahh pardon I have to leave a little bit earlier than usual, I need to attend another meeting (I'm trying to cut down on them so I can make more video tutorials).
Citizen Dreamscape: Does anyone know if there is a decent "rule of thumb" for texture vs. prim size. Like .5x.5x.5 should be fine with a 32x32 targa or something like that? Or is it all guesswork/art/voodoo magic?
Jason Swain: Thank you very much Torley , Have a great weekend ^^
Torley Linden: That looks like a deleesh slice.
Al Sonic: Okie, g'bye!
Rocky Merosi: uh huh
Rocky Merosi: it is :)
Rocky Merosi: want one?
Handmadeandroid Zenovka: nice to see you torley :)
Torley Linden: Citizen, really depends on content & context. But generally, if details aren't all that important, downsize.
Torley Linden: :D
Torley Linden: Nice to see each and all of you too, and have a great weekend!
Citizen Dreamscape: Coolio. Thanks.
Watermelon Slice whispers: Mmm!
Rocky Merosi gave you Watermelon Slice.
Citizen Dreamscape: LOL
Shockwave Plasma: Bye Torley
Citizen Dreamscape: I love it when inanimate objects whisper in 2L.
Rocky Merosi: lol no kidding
Citizen Dreamscape: "Bench whispers 'Sit on me!'
Rocky Merosi: everything seems to talk here
Torley Linden: Citizen: If you have a small object you expect people to zoom in on, using a bigger texture is fine. But if it's just going to be something most people don't see, then smaller texture is appropriate.
CeeJay Tigerpaw: Cheers, all.
Torley Linden: T'care all! *waves*
Torley Linden: :D
Citizen Dreamscape: RL would be freaky like that. LOL
Rocky Merosi: later Torley :)
Daedalus Young: bye Torley
Al Sonic: *wave*
Harleen Gretzky: bye Torley, have a great weekend!
Citizen Dreamscape: Thanks Torley.
Sougent Harrop: Bye Torley
