  1. You Are Here. No, seriously. This is where you are, but, since you have not yet defined your self image you are not visible. We have provided this handy map marker you can use in the interim. I'll link this from another thread:
  2. Nope. Bare metal means no hypervisor. I'll try to describe what I saw back then. The computers had two 10G LAN interfaces and a 1G Management interface, each. There were two dual socket Xeon computers in each 1U chassis. I think the rack, as shipped, had 40 of those in it and a switch or two and power rails. It was all wired and tied and ready to feed. Then it was wrapped and crated and shipped to a data center. I think at the time they were shipping to Phoenix AZ. The test harness did not include a hypervisor. It included an image containing a custom Debian GNU Linux OS
  3. SL simulator hosts have been running a customized Debian GNU Linux OS on BARE METAL. There has been time for that to change between when I watched Silicon Mechanics servers racked for LL to when LL announced they were preparing to move to cloud hosts. Gosh, if they are still using the servers I saw racked they are dealing with 11 year or so old servers. That seems unlikely.
  4. There are 47 in list returned when I query the "Advisor" role and only 1 of those is immutable.
  5. I am familiar with those rules. They no longer apply to me. Alas, I have no real GPUs. I only have the Intel stuff in the CPU so it's not likely to do me any good to try Alchemy.
  6. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, could be selected from pre-loaded "Favorite landmarks" just below the Menu Bar. Select a destination, receive mission objective, follow the clues, participate..... Don't many established Residents like to participate in grid-wide or community "hunts" and other adventures? Is it possible that the people running these already produce engaging content for Residents that, with a little coaching, a new resident might likewise find engaging? I see a vast talent pool out there and I see a lot of people saying "Somebody should do something." S
  7. Alts are people too. 😉 If Alts spend money or others spend money on them, then alts do indeed help the SL economy. Bots, on the other hand, should be "registered" as "scripted agents" on their account pages. Hmm... I think "scripted agents" still count in concurrency statistics but not parcel traffic statistics. I won't assume they help the economy directly but MAYBE some are tools used to help others help the economy by helping themselves manage land and stores. That said, I am not here to start any arguments and, yes, I suspect MOST bots are wasting resources. I see hundreds a da
  8. I'd like to put you in charge of eliminating "world map signs", but, alas, I am nobody.

  10. How about eliminating the entire GUI and doing everything except movement of avatar and direct manipulation of in-world objects via a command interface? Should I run and hide now?
  11. Yeah. I think a grand total of two people in the closed beta for Viewer 2 did not scream about the world view shrinking when the sidebar opened. One actually had a seizure and another vomited on the floor during testing that "feature".
