    firestorm new release 64bit

    Candy, to give you sensible advice we need you to post details of your system...OS (64 bit windows 7/10?) also the amount of RAM (you need at least 8GB these days and preferably more. With that information we can more easily advise you, though the inworld Firestorm Support English group (assuming your native language IS English) should be your first priority.

    Deploy Plans for the week of 2018-09-17

    It is now 21.20 BST...13.20hr PDT and according to the Grid Status Page the rolling restart is STILL happening. Is this merely an oversight or is this roll taking far longer than usual?

    Having said what I did about your previous post, we still do not know what 519222 actually is!

    Thankyou Caleb. A clarification.

    Sunday Still no comment from either Caleb in this thread, or the Lab on the GSP as to why the published server version was NOT rolled to the RCs this past week, nor any indication of what the content of the actual server version rolled WAS. If this was to circumvent a very late-discovered security exploit I'm not daft enough to ask WHAT, but just some indication of WHY would be nice. Does ANYONE actually know what the reason is?

    I can confirm that the LeTigre RC sim Wirtz is also running 519222, so what happened to 519319?

    OK BTW , Solar, I never said anything about LL not working to PST/PDT. So your comments make no sense to me, either.

    OK firstly the issue ceased after c. 1.5 hr so it did not require a restart. Perhaps it does happen to you that other regions restarting cause TD spikes. It has not been my experience but maybe that's irrelevant. Secondly, it being a US company employing US staff is not disputed. However its customer and user-base is worldwide and THAT is relevant, though a US company might not see beyond its own shores. That is what I meant by "insular". Thirdly I notice that the Grid Status Page has posts supposedly made on the 3rd and at 3am PST on the 4th. I was monitoring the webpage...they were NOT there earlier today. And no it is not a browser-cache issue, I know to check that. Fourthly, the issue is over and considered irrelevant by the majority. I guess that I just have to live with not being on US territory and thus being an irrelevance to some in the USA.

    OK so my point is proven. It was a US holiday and the rest of the World can go hang. Of course. And some people wonder why the rest of us call the US insular?? Yes, some call it worse but that's their business. The TD spikes WERE due to botched restarts of other servers on the same machine, it seems.

    Well I guess I should've expected it. No announcements either in here or on the Status page but Main Server Rolls are happening as usual, oh...except we were not warned, and some sims have been botched. Now I know it was Labor Day in the USA yesterday so that there was nothing on the GSP is no great surprise, but WHEN is LL going to realise that SL is NOT exclusively US, it is WORLD WIDE! It is no defence to say that "we are entitled to our National Holidays". All that was needed was a brief post to say the the Roll WAS going ahead. That it has been done fairly kack-handedly by all accounts is no great surprise. My sim is suffering massive TD spikes with only 2 avs on it and NO TPs, so the spikes are probably due to issues with other regions on the same sever as mine. which from its number is a very old one. Not clever, LL.

    No Rolls this week?

    erm...that was my point Scott, that week Caleb DIDN'T. This week he has. I do know my way round this community by now, I should after nigh on ten years...and yet and yet... my region was restarted despite only having been rolled the previous week! Not complaining just mildly surprised. You have the advantage of me there Phil. I have NO idea what your point was.

    erm did I say which one I was referring to? anyway(s) the two big bits North of Mexico both speak the King's English so we are still in (dis)agreement! Gosh I posted this over an hour ago and the server crashed!!

    No Rolls this week?

    Yes well, you see I speak the Queen's English and you speak the King's English (George 3) so we are two nations divided by a common language (someone once said). (Do you think they need pose-balls?) Yes, I do bang on about the Lindens' lack of predictable communication. 'tis my cross to bear.

    No Rolls this week?

    Oh Willow Why DO folk misunderstand my posts so much? I am not a spoilsport, of course Linden staff deserve a bit of fun! However since they undertook to communicate more effectively with their user-base I have seen no significant change to the accuracy and frequency of their posts in this thread. I do not think that it is done to "spoil my day", I am not that self-centred and indeed it doesn't, but I DO think that a post saying that there is no new code to roll but there WILL be restarts where they have deemed it necessary would be reassuring. My PS was not intended as a cynical coda to the post, and as regards the Mainland regions, restarts do get made but there are squabbles between parcel owners on the region as to when and how these are done, with the inevitable result that little, if anything, ever gets done.

    I see... So the Lindens are all off on a jolly? ALL OF THEM??? Bite me if I am mistaken but if there is to be no new code deployed and just restarts as they see fit, don't they at least tell us? I'm not suggesting that they shouldn't HAVE jollies, but at least they could let us know that there was no one at home. PS Oh and my Homestead also got a restart so that was OK. I do know of a few adult Mainland sims that really need weekly restarts.
