  1. Deploy Plans for the week of 2017-11-06

    Following on from that post, Grumpity, I see that despite the scheduled postponement of the Support Maintenance until next Monday... "Hi Everybody! Well, this is embarrassing. Our support upgrade needs to be postponed yet again. Outside factors have come into play and we will be unable to upgrade our service until next week. What this means is that for our residents: Support access will remain normal until next Monday the 13th at 3:00 pm. We will then move forward with this upgrade which will have the same expected downtime." ...The GSP is showing Support as "Under Maintenance" today! So is that still this "handy feature" fooling us all, or is it more "miscommunication"?

    Thankyou Grumpity That was just the reassurance we needed after today's oddities, most welcome! I AM a bit perplexed by the now-you-see-it now-you-don't....now-you-do behaviour of the GSP over the support downtime! Never mind, so long as the work get done!

    So what is so different about today's roll compared to the many other Main Server restarts. Is this a coded message saying that the SL infrastructure is in danger of collapse? Or was it simply a case of kack-handed server operation? That does not explain the unusual restart of the LeTigre RC region.

    This gets curiouser and curiouser. Wirtz, a mainland LeTigre sim was also restarted today by LL, but while one might reasonably assume some anomaly had been found in 510119 to cause the reversion to 509394, it remained on 510119! Now why on EARTH restart an RC channel region/server today and stay on 510119, if it had been found to have a problem/exploit? This whole restart/roll mess today looks like a complete mix-up, so far totally unexplained or even noted.

    This is beginning to look like an LL FUBAR. My region was not rolled so I contacted support. It was rolled to a new sim but not to the sever version, that according to Caleb above, it should be! Shrek ears anyone? ETA , having contacted support again, it appears that the roll was abandoned today. Watch for updates to the OP.

    Sharie, Perhaps even THEY don't know yet!

    You are becoming tiresome, Drake Firstly, the Server Rolls are posted BEFORE the rolls, usually something like 12 hours before, at around 2pm on the Monday, SLT, with the Main Server roll beginning officially at 3am the next day. Secondly, LL has a QA procedure which allows them to test code being promoted to the Main Server regions, testing them on Aditi first if necessary then putting them on one or more of the Release Candidate Channels of LeTigre, Bluesteel or Magnum. No one can know with ABSOLUTE certainty how Rolls will proceed but after a good few years, they are getting the hang of it.

    The point of the Linden post is to tell us what they WILL BE doing not what they have done. It has always been so.
  9. Here we go again

    Oh come on Drake This is pointless. At no point did I suggest that I would flounce off if these updates were not posted and I certainly didn't say anything about direct messaging. I simply ask that the information be posted in this forum, as it has been for the last ten years or so, in a timely manner. If you consider that unnecessary, fine...you go right on and think that. I won't.
  10. Here we go again

    Well Drake So weekly Rolling Restarts never change parameters? I simply disagree. There ARE other changes that require client updates, but not all do. Bug fixes are a typical example. The rest of what I said stands. Never mind, this is a matter on which we will not agree and Caleb HAS posted now, so better late than never. Congrats Whirly, spot on. Ce n'as fait rein. Or put more simply, "meh" .
  11. Here we go again

    OK Drake so you don't give a damn. Server software changes in SL are far and away different from changes sometimes made by ISPs. Yes they discuss things (SOME things) at meetings, which (if you'd bothered to read what I wrote) I cannot attend. Maintenance is most assuredly NOT something just to keep the Hamsters happy, unless you mean the regular restarts needed to keep server memory from overflowing. I DO give a damn because I like to know what it is that I am to get, whether it be permission changes or script function changes, or whatever. I probably care more about SL because my response to the standard "get a Life" mantra is that I HAD a life, and it was mostly taken from me by illness, so I replaced it with a Second Life. And when LL does clever things it like to show off to us via the Blog, and even to apologise when they screw up.
  12. Here we go again

    Well The Roll has ended and we are still none the wiser about the content rolled to our regions. "Internal Fixes"? A guess from what was rolled to the RCs last week or info from the groups that Lindens discuss scripting and such with the residents, Whirly?. Yes, Nal, I COULD go to such meetings, if they were held at a time I could be online, but like many, they aren't. And as to relying on a Third Party Blog, (Good and reliable as it is), that is simply a "workaround". This is the place where such information is supposed to be put out for us users to digest. I repeat, this performance is NOT GOOD ENOUGH. If for any of many perfectly good reasons Caleb cannot post, there are plenty of other Lindens that could, and should take up the slack.
  13. freezing and crashing sim

    Whatever the owner of the sim support can, if asked, arrange for the sim to be restarted. If it IS a private region, support can tell you and if the owner cannot be contacted, a restart will be performed if server performance is erroring.
  14. Here we go again

    Caleb We are two hours into the restarts on Main Server and there is no post from you or any other Linden to tell us WHAT we are getting! This is NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

    *offers a clean hanky to Caleb* "There...Blow!" I rarely have to complain about Caleb, he is at worst a bit late in posting, but that can happen for any number of perfectly good reasons. My whinge was about the benighted souls who are supposed to operate the Grid Status Page, who simply did not do their jobs.
