[15:13]  Loki Clifton: no
[15:13]  Oskar Linden: I rushed the stage at a midnight showing New Years Eve at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle
[15:14]  Oskar Linden: then I started pulling others on stage and soon there were more people on stage dancing with the band than in the crowd
[15:14]  Oskar Linden: the trick is to get enough people on stage that security can't get up there
[15:14]  IzzieBellah Hinterland: doesn't matter what life Oskar is in, he's a rebel all the around.
[15:15]  Oskar Linden: I like to have fun

[15:20]  IzzieBellah Hinterland: love the colors
[15:20]  Oskar Linden: She sold it for her monthly rent
[15:20]  Oskar Linden: and it let her stay there for another month
[15:20]  Opensource Obscure: that's the right price!
[15:20]  Oskar Linden: that made me feel good
[15:20]  Opensource Obscure: so .. we read many interesting things these days on the blog from FJ .. general database now running on Mysql 5 .. european datacenter later this year .. global caching .. these don't directly relate to sim servers , but maybe you can add some details about
[15:21]  Opensource Obscure: *that
[15:21]  Richard Linden is Online
[15:22]  Oskar Linden: the mysql5 upgrade was a HUGE process
[15:22]  Oskar Linden: they have had that in the works for more than a year
[15:23]  Opensource Obscure: should we expect any immediate improvement from this upgrade?
[15:23]  Eddi Decosta: ah its for this? this offline hours ㋡
[15:23]  Oskar Linden: the improvements may not be readily apparent
[15:23]  Oskar Linden: the newer datacenter improvements probably will be
[15:24]  Oskar Linden: we are also doing some spreading out of our datacenter pieces and parts
[15:24]  Opensource Obscure: i'm from italy, so i hope they will
[15:24]  Loki Clifton: will it fix the Large invantory people
[15:24]  Oskar Linden: that is ongoing all this year
[15:24]  Opensource Obscure: from italy we always have 200ms of latency at least
[15:24]  Opensource Obscure: oh wait. that won't change, right?
[15:25]  Richard Linden is Offline
[15:25]  Opensource Obscure: that refers to the connection with the sim server
[15:25]  Oskar Linden: that depends OO. I'm not sure on the particulars
[15:25]  Opensource Obscure: yeah and i'm not being clear i fear. np
[15:26]  Eddi Decosta: well, ysertday i never disconnected from agni :p
[15:26]  Richard Linden is Online
[15:27]  Oskar Linden: so 1.34.2 went out well it looks like

[15:28]  Opensource Obscure waves to Lil
[15:29]  Oskar Linden: 1.36 is mostly bug fixes
[15:29]  Oskar Linden: lots and lots of bug fixes
[15:29]  Opensource Obscure: yay!
[15:29]  Eddi Decosta: ㋡
[15:29]  Oskar Linden: there shouldn't be much that is 'confidential'
[15:29]  Oskar Linden: so hopefully the release notes will be nice and fat
[15:29]  Oskar Linden: we're hoping for an early february release
[15:29]  Richard Linden is Offline
[15:30]  Oskar Linden: we actually packed much more into 1.36 than I thought we would
[15:30]  Opensource Obscure: will Viewer 2.0 release schedule influence server releases? or they're completely independent?
[15:31]  Oskar Linden: I'll appreciate any and all help on poking it as hard as we can
[15:31]  Oskar Linden: completely independent
[15:31]  Oskar Linden: we have been dropping vwr2 pieces into server code for months now
[15:31]  Opensource Obscure: hah!
[15:31]  Oskar Linden: ;-)
[15:31]  Oskar Linden: little stuff :-p
[15:32]  Opensource Obscure: i saw something change when using a viewer i built from 2009 april code .. it uses advanced shadows .. projected textures
[15:32]  Oskar Linden: there isn't any vwr2 code out there is there?
[15:32]  Oskar Linden: I didn't think so
[15:32]  Eddi Decosta: i hope a new graphic stuff ㋡
[15:32]  Opensource Obscure: you published something under rendering-pipeline branch
[15:32]  Oskar Linden: some of it might have slipped into the release branches
[15:33]  Oskar Linden: I'm really pretty far removed from any vwr2 stuff
[15:33]  Opensource Obscure: do you know anything about Havok7?
[15:34]  Oskar Linden: nope
[15:34]  Oskar Linden: it's not on my radar
[15:36]  Oskar Linden: anyways... :-)
