  1. This is actually HUGE news! server side rendering will be a boon to the average user. Nearly all of the lag that we experience is related to bandwidth and client side rendering. Historically most of the lag complaints have not been entirely LL's fault but instead have been related to inadequate clients to handle the demands of SL. This could enable the use of SL on any device from older PCs to smartphones to Google Glasses. OTOY There was a thread in the old SL forums when this company announced this that led to speculation if SL would ever go this way. It was a far off dream back then. Now
  2. I wonder precisely who's idea this was? It sounds completely overreactionary and unworkable in practice. Like using a bomb to scratch an itch on your face.
  3. Excellent news! I cannot wait to try this out.
  4. Thanks Jopsy, I think you just provided an excellent answer to one of the challenges in this hairball. At least for the use of Real Names. Create a parallel SL world for everyone wanting to use their real names. As I mentioned in an earlier post who among us except for a very few wants to use their real names inworld when most others are not? As it seems patently irresponsible to me to invite a new member to use their real names in a world where most others are not without a sufficient number of warnings. Whereas a separate world for people using their real names would be a world that peopl
  5. Hi Jopsy, I am replying to your post not for its particular content. But to see what your opinion of this question is. For those who want to use their real names in SL, what is wrong with making an extra av available to everyone? That way it would not be such a mess with double names all over the place? I asked this question earlier but I do not think anyone answered it. And I wanted to see what an argument against extra av's would look like.
  6. If it was just commercial hype the Iphone 3 would not have set sales records. Nor 4 for that matter. Other than the antenna snafu in the Iphone 4. Apple is famous for it's attention to detail not only in function but form as well. Apple or the Iphone is not my particular cup of tea either but the quality and popularity is undeniable. They also created a new paradigm for what a smartphone should be and that is why so many others are copying them. The reason I brought them up in the first place is they are an obvious example of a company that is very focused on their own primary product and visi
  7. Imagine if SL worked on a par with the quality levels of the Iphone! Would that be awesome or what? And with increased content protection. New Users would be beating down the doors trying to get into SL. Add in a new and improved present day low poly Avatar Mesh and New Users will use any name LL tells them to. If this happened within a few years someone will say "Facebook" and others will say: "Oh yeah I still got a page there but I am hardly ever on there anymore. And if all goes well in this universe then we will be able to look back and say: "Remember when LL briefly considered borking the
  8. I was just reading an article on how 3d printing is becoming set to revolutionize manufacturing. They mention a company called "Shapeways" which allows average people to send them designs which they then create real life physical objects from. A wealth of design software programs, from free applications to the more sophisticated offerings of companies including Alibre and Autodesk, allows a person to concoct a product at home, then send the design to a company like Shapeways, which will print it and mail it back. “We are enabling a class of ordinary people to take their ideas and turn t
  9. If that becomes true then I certainly hope that paying members will be blessed with not having to see all that. Incentive to premium perhaps?
  10. Good point. I guess I tend to overestimate. Your solution is straightforward and to the point. Possibly would it not even be easier for them to simply provide an extra av for the real name option? In the event that a name is already taken a small number could be added right after the name in Chat, IM and on objects. But not on the actual floating nametag. This would let people use real names or permanent nicknames on their primary user field. This would preserve exclusivity and avoid borking search and practically all other potentially confusing areas. Voila! no longer will there be a need f
  11. This is one of the most important changes I have seen proposed by LL in the entire 4 years that I have been in SL! LL you guys should send out an Email to every single resident of SL pointing to the original and subsequent blogs on this topic. Encouraging everyone to weigh in on this issue. It is a very small percentage of SL residents that even bother to read the blogs as most of the changes Rarely Affect Everyone on the grid! This would be the responsible thing to do! Not only for your current clients/residents but also for you yourself as a business. I know that if I had not heard about it
  12. The problem with it as I see it is the design. This implementation is attempting to solve multiple disparate goals with one packaged solution. The goal of allowing a person to use their real name in SL is far different than the goal of allowing a user to play with temporary names for role playing or anything else. IMHO complying with a new directory structure, use of Real Names and use of Temporary Names could have been approached differently. By designing each function into the overall system in the best way for each goal separately. What I mean by "best" is the most elegant and seamless wa
