  1. My bandwidth usage soared my ISP immediately pinned down the problem to some sort of update in sl.... I'd ignored mention of pathfinding and lo and behold theres the cause.... My usage jumped from 1- 2 gbs a day to 10 !!!! Without SL (I dont want to pay my ISP any more which is what I'll have to do if I exceed my allotted 60 GBs) over the past few days my gb usage has dropped to 512 mbs a day !! Therefore I have no choice but to stay out of sl until at least my next months billing period starts in september. This means Im paying my tier fo only halfs a month use. Lindens arent doing anything though they believe their terms of service means they arent obliged to provide us with a regular service.. Presumably being kept out of sl for half a month is acceptable to them. Oh well tomorrow I contact English trading standards authorities and see if Lindens can shirk their responsibilities to their customers when they screw things up BIG TIME. You'd have thought reducing my tier by 50% was a small price to pay for my continued good custom but I think Lindens have EPIC FAIL written all over them when it comes to customer service ! Now Im looking to sell my land and cut my premium membership.... Ive sent my responses to TJ Lindens useless email via the email I got...needless to say the ticket system wasnt working either when I tried earlier !!
  2. I bet these gamer bods are going to love coming to sl as is and seeing their gigas gobbled by pathfinding.... As Im looking to civ 5 on steam as an alternative to a rapidly declining sl I dont want nasty mega munching features being spread there thanks....
  3. I wondered who linden labs were getting ready to sell too......
  4. STILL UNABLE TO USE SL - THE MEGS PILE ON SECOND AFTER SECOND TO AN EXTENT WHERE I CANT STOP IN SL FOR FEAR OF RISKING MY OTHER INTERNET USAGE.... IN VIEW OF THE FACT I CAN NOT EVEN CONSIDER ENTERING SL WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF INCURRING CHARGES FOR EXTRA USAGE BY MY ISP I HAVE SUBMITTED A TICKET REQUESTING A 50 % REDUCTION IN THIS MONTHS TIER PAYMENT...I SUGGEST ANYONE SIMILARLY AFFECTED NOW DO THE SAME.
  5. Well I tpd from one region that was affected to one where pathfinding has been shut off and the drop was immediately registered on my usage meter.... But I suggest everyone try it for themselves download a usage meter and go to a region on mainland watch the usage rocket then try a region where its turned off SHADY was the region I went to and I didnt turn south east south west or any other compass alignment.. I walked across SHADY as soon as tp'ing in and the difference was immediate... but dont take my word for it...try it for yourselves... TURN PATH FINDING OFF NOW... :smileymad:
  6. Still of out sl ...bumped to get an important matter ahead of the other 'stuff' on this forum....
  7. Oh and if you dont like my post oskar tough...I dont like my bandwidth usage being smashed to hell and faced with paying my ISP for extra bandwidth...
  8. Oskar Linden is clearly the kind of guy who wont admit a massive error has been made and that users are being inconvenienced BIGTIME... EXTRACT A DIGIT OSKAR AND GET THIS USELESS FEATURE TURNED OFF I WONT BE WAITING ROUND FOREVER FOR THIS ONE TO BE FIXED...Not like I have with numerous ludicrous boundary crashes for the last 5 years....
  9. Lindens are obviously in a panic about this I contacted live help a couple of nights ago and asked for pathfinding to be turned off in the regions where I own land...quite remarkably I was offered an island without paying the 1000 dollar set up fee...wish I could afford the monthly fee for an island .... It was also suggested I use the sl viewer instead of firestorm ...didnt make any difference and to set the viewer distance to 32...odd it only seems to go down to 64 on my version... but then again if Im building with a 64 m prim I at least want to be able to see the other side of it to build with in... In any event I cant get into sl while this fiasco goes on...not without paying my ISP a very large amount for going over my gb allowance. Of course even though I can only use sl for a limited amount of time Im sure oskar linden wont be recommending refunds on both tiers AND premium payments....
  10. IT DOES HAVE AN EFFECT BELIEVE ME ...IVE COMPARED READINGS IN REGIONS WHERE PATHFINDING IS ON AND OFF...AND THE DIFFERENCE IS CONSIDERABLE. WHY DONT YOU TRY DOWNLOADING A USAGE METER AND TEST IT YOURSELF.. MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR BLOCK CAPS. I CANT GET INTO SL BUT IM STILL PAYING MY TIER AND PREMIUM ACCOUNT AND BASICALLY IM FURIOUS.
  11. All I know is that my gf went to umpteen regions where we own land last night none of em is magnum...Im sure she didnt go out of her way to orient herself in any particular direction...in every one her usage meter went mad...then she went to a region where its turned off...the difference speaks for itself. And even if the info is right who wants to spend their time in sl in specific parts of a region facing a certain way...ridiculous nothing its BLOODY LUDICROUS
  12. I want Lindens to shut off pathfinder across the grid...its clearly a major nuisance.... why should the option to shut down be available to some but not others... SIMPLE
  13. Its time someone at Lindens got their finger out started looking at the issues adversely affecting their clients and giving some infomration and actually BE SEEN to be doing something other than promoting other social networking sites and using them to dribble out info people want to see...
  14. Do you know how ridiculous your advice sounds ?? Read it back...stand in this region, face that direction.... we need action from lindens now ... I cant get into sl for the rest of the month..why should I pay a full months tier or a full months premium payment for that ...what annoys me is that this iss ue is of vital importance to users whether their usage is limited or not and we arent getting any info at all. By the way if this thread slides from the top I'll be bumping it till we get some much needed action...
  15. And yet the talk in the firestorm group at least was that Lindens wont bother ... What Im interested in now is whats in all those extrea megs being thrown at us. By the way you might enjoy wandering round sl using a draw distance of 32 m...what pleasure is there to be had in the amazing landscapes and builds in sl...viewer designers might as well just restrict the draw distance and the rest of us may as well stand in a 32 m hollowed out cube... basically the politest word I can think of for this is crap....
  16. Turn pathfinding off NOW until it works. My GB usage has been pushed to the limit by this rubbish which is absolutely no use to this user. Lag has also been apalling since it was introduced. Lindens keep introducing this rubbish and doing nothing to rectify the stability issues and financial issues which are slowly turning the entire map yellow. As for me, Im now trying to work out how many minutes a day i can now spend in sl....My ISP generously increased my allowance - at a price of course...but this month my usage is done for if I wandered into sl and stayed for any length of time the worst case scenario is that I would be paying my isp an extra £200 for the usage over my allowance ! Needless to say I doubt whether linden labs would be prepared to foot this bill even though this problem is THEIR fault !! If lindens dont do something to rectify this soon there wont be any point me paying my tier (or that matter monthly premium account payment) for the decreasing amount of time I can come into sl. You should see the megabytes piling on on a broadband usage meter. My usage hasnt changed but since pathfinding was introducing my daily usage has soared from 1- 2 gb to 8- 10 !! As usual the upper echelon users have the right to turn this off on their islands - not so those of us who simply own bits of mainland... The feature is an absolute disaster as far as Im concerned and need to be laid to rest now.,...
  17. pATHFINDING IS A DISASTER FOR USER ON LIMITED GB ALLOWANCES FROM THEIR ispS ..CHECK THE jiras. The worst thing thats been introduced in sl .....
  18. Lol its no wonder Lindens can get away with lumbering us with huge tiers...theyre probably funding constuction of a space rocket to escape Earth and its untimely doom.......
  19. Oh so we're not taking these theories from New Scientist or an edition of Horizon not even Patrick Moore but John Moore who Ive never heard of....is he a scientist then or just another Jerry Springer ...lol
  20. Im surpised you take or recommend pills...Id have thought one read of the statutory leaflet in any box would put you off....after all you believe some voyage to the bottom of the sea episode scenario about the world being flooded....
  21. What in San francisco ? Pay me the costs and Im there.... you might find it pricey as I live in the UK though alternatively if you fancy financing a holiday for me in Llanddudno or cornwall....bring it on................
  22. ... predicting the end of the world pre norman conquest........
  23. ... or a refuge for a humourless bunch of armageddon peddlars
  24. Well its quite simple if the west side of the USA appears to be sinking move everyone over to the east side and get them to jump in unison.... Make sure the statue of liberty is kitted out with a verry large pair of wellington boots first though
