That's an euphemism, really. All of a sudden everyone on my contacts list started to log off, and they all did in the end. Next, I couldn't move, and logged out myself, but couldn't log back in, of course. It seems to be an SL blackout, as the dashboard web page doesn't load, either.

Shrek ears for all the Second Life team working today?;)

Note: yesterday the lag was intense all over SL, so I should have seen it coming... (my dashboard finally loaded, so maybe not the whole team should wear those ears)

And it's not over. The sequence of "Unscheduled Second Life Maintenance" is just pathetic.

I can't login anywhere. (for the smart posters: yes, I just tried logging in at a Le Tigre region.)

Shrek ears for Linden Lab.

well LL is not unlike other hosting providers, sometimes Beatrix,  things break, hardware,ect and sometimes it takes ages to recover, remember the SL database is way over a petabyte and if you can imagine the rebuilding of a new server thats been promoted to act as the database for everything.   this is not some ordinary hosting provider that can have instant fall over spool up and maybe a few seconds of hiccups, promotion of a backup node to the primary node takes hours and if it has problems then LL has issues which affects us.  nature of the beast.

It's just caused by The Phoenix's Level 3 Host Provider. Down since yesterday. Level3 is looking for the fixing the network. that causing an pathetic outages in this area. I'll wait for another day though. Better find the SL-Virtual World Alternative that includes Explorable Area and Open World. besides Activeworlds,There.com and Onverse. that we know it. lots are on the steam from 15$-100$. for Example Grand Theft Auto V,ARMA III,Flight Simulator X Steam Edition and X-Plane 11 Global. It's worth of Money.

All true, and just thinking on the amount of inventory transactions per hour gives me an headache. But why do they keep pretending it's all OK, and minutes (or hours) later coming back saying it's not? Sorry, but it's pathetic.

Oh, OK, Shrek ears for that provider, then. But no kudos to LL's GSP.

Nah, I pay for SL and my internet connection already, I'm not going to feed some parasite service.

Yep, nothing we can do.  And if it's true that their provider is the cause, nothing LL can do, either, except explaining what the problem is, so it doesn't look pathetic from them.

Hopefully not, but it's not looking good.

We use level 3, they appear somewhat pathetic at planning and notifications.
