  1. Hi Hara. You're playing a frigging 3d video game, if it wasn't running at 100% CPU I'd be worried about how well it's running. "An enormous amount of memory" is very subjective. On a system with 1GB SL uses a lot, on one with 8GB it's using next to none. When it first launched Viewer 2.0 had a memory leak and would crash even just standing around as it approached 2GB. Recently I've not seen it, but it (or another) could still be there on a different system configuration. (I've only used it on Vista 32-bit, Seven 64-bit and Ubuntu 64-bit on the same hardware.) So you suggest - and Linden Lab too - I must change my pc only to connect on SL using V2???? Sorry but this is a non-sense!!! With my old pc, that is ok for my real job, the only viewer I can use is Cool VL Viewer in version 1.23. I can building and scripting only with 256 MB of ram.!!! I can also use voice!!! This I call a good viewer!!! But your call to fix known bugs is still that old non-developer misunderstanding that every programmer is identical. A database programmer (which Display Names is a part of) knows little to nothing about an OpenGL, networking or game logic problem (which are many of the open bugs). Yes, maybe you think right, but I'm a web developer, from analisys to ended product and I know that adding one or more fields on a table is very easy: is the use of theese new fields - and the logic behind it - that can generate an enormous variety of new bugs in the system. And the impersonation is a strawman. There are plenty of ways to find out who the user really is ... Yes, I know, but try to explain it to new SL users, and hope they remember it!!! Rubin Lyle
  2. Dear Lillia, I'm on SL from 2007, and I see more changes in client software, server software, and functionality of the system: but I cann't remember a "disaster" like Viewer 2. It's a disaster for every PC I try it: lag, cpu working at 100% all the time, an enormous amount of memory used... In the same situation with 1.23 or something else like Cool VL Viewer I have no lag, possibility to run more than 1 client with no client lag, normal working for cpu and the right memory usage It's only my opinion, but I thik that the old clients are better than viewer 2. Another example: during building operations, it's useful to move the camera instead of the avatar and do it 1000 times: in the old viewers the camera control window is always shown and complete, in V2 the old camera control is split into 2 tab and the window hide itself after few seconds. As results of this, what I did with 1 click on the old viewers (1000 click), now i can do it with 3 click on different UI position (3000 click): old viewers are more usable! And what about the search tools? In the old viewers I always found what i looked for, I cannot say this for V2. I can tell you a lot of other examples: in V2 simplicity is only a memory... We don't hate wiewer 2, but I think - and a lot of people think the same - that Linden Lab people must resolve a lot of bugs in the system of SL, before add new functionality like Display Name, that will cause a lot of problems still indicates to LL in other posts of the blog. Example: in the future, one of the griefer preferred activity will be the "Impersonation", and the report abuse system will be filled with reports against wrong persons, because of display names...

  3. I think that is better if Linden Lab try to resolve SL problems instead of release "Display Names", that will cause thousands of more problems with wrong abuse report!!!! What must I think if I'll banned from SL because a griefer with a display name like Rubin Lile or Rubyn Lyle ? Try to resolve real problems of the system: lag, tikets system with very long times queue (I have 2 tickets opened on August 28th 2010 and still in "new" state")... Rubin Lyle
  4. I have 4 open tickets, 2 of then opened on August 24th 2010. I have no words... Rubin Lyle
