  1. Linden Lab's New CEO


    Can I say "yay"?   Welcome aboard Rod.. we don't bite.. too hard that is.  I'm looking forward to see what you bring to the table.  I'm excited by the possibilities in 2011.  What a great Christmas present to the users of Second Life.. 


  2. It's been more than 24 hours and the funds still have not been credited to my account.  I called billing and the reply was "they're working on it" .. which tells me absolutely nothing at all.  Please communicate with us.  Tell us "something" other than "we're working on it".  Thank you.


  3. Thanks Suezanne for sharing that blog link.  It does work.. although I had no problems logging in myself.. I guess due to the reasons Maniac has stated.  Anyway.. special thanks to Daniel Voyager for working out a fix for those inquisitive minds of SL.. which is mostly all of us! :-)


  4. What's wierd is that Gaikai's site says you must have current flash and java when they do not even have current java.  Each time I do access the SL beta site, I get 3 java security error messages that their java is outdated and poses a potential security threat.. therefore I must manually approve it.

    I've been reading up a bit and apparently the SL Beta is part of Gaikai's beta program which also included other applications commencing on the 17th of November.  SL users are not the only ones having issues.

    More about others experiencing similar issues on other apps besides SL:

  5. Please keep in mind this is the first of many tests to come.  It is only a  test run... to a concept that is barely beta.  One could almost call it alpha.   I still think the results are great.  I'm extremely pleased.

    I also think the reason some were able to get through after several tries is  because the video was cached so did not have to re-download which possibly gives false results of having greater bandwidth.


  6. Looks great.  I love it...

    I live in France.  My system is French Vista Family Premium. Dell...Nvidia drivers.. I did the recent Nvidia update at the end of October last month.. just basically an average PC, nothing special.  I use Orange ADSL for Internet... unlimited bandwidth.. fast access.  I had trouble with IE and Firefox but with Chrome it worked great each time. 

    One landing point did not rez the hair, I think that was some Eyptian looking  place.  But it had a lot of avatars there constantly coming and going.  Other  than that one place and issue with hair, everything  else rezzed super fast..including hair at other locations with fewer  avatars.. that is until I decided to change avatars.  It seemed to have  difficulty changing.  Now my guest avatar is wearing 2 outfits at once.  My  daughter thinks it makes a cool style, lol. :-)  I relogged as guest several times just to test it.  Of course my French keyboard  did not work ok but I was able to switch to english so that was ok. 

    I decided  to be rebelious and stray from the chosen destinations listed in the client.   From the Linden winter chalet I was able to take off flying, exploring parts of  Mainland.. so that was a cool detour even though it was not part of the  controlled environment of set destinations.

    I do think the new avatar needs more control with appearance.

    Anyway.. I hope to see this as an added option for SL users soon.  I think having a web 3D browser will open up massive windows of opportunities for Linden Lab and SL users both, especially those of us who are merchants.  We should welcome this needed development because it will help our world to expand, thus potentially increasing sales for those of us who make a living here.

    Yes it is only beta but I'm still excited also because I think for the first time that this browser can introduce the virtual environment like SL to people who have never done anything outside of FB or myspace or twitter.

  7. I have 5 images posted in my first comment.. and as you can plainly see that I am in beta..and I live in France.... was all over mainland, too.  I went to the Linden Chalet and then took off flying from there.  It was a ton of fun.  I think this is a positive step in the right direction for SL.  I cannot wait for further development of the web browser.  I think it will attract an entire new user generation to SL.  I like the fact that it has a button for full access.. makes a nice teaser.  Let's see more destinations and more access to mainland.  Allow teleports too...allow voice..allow shopping.. allow them a linden house..  friend's list but everything else they need full access. Thanks for the awesome work!


  8. Thanks Nelson for the updates.. always nice to have advanced notice.

    What would be really great is if everyone could purchase Homesteads.  You  mention Customer Support.. which support is that?  Phone, live chat or ticket?   Who will be handling it? Do you know when or if Concierge will be answering  phones again?  Thank you.


  9. Bonjour Kim.. it's great to have you!  Wow from Blizzard eh?  How lucky are we.   Very impressive.  I always said that what Linden Lab needed were professionals from the gaming industry.  Even though SL is not an MMO, it is still a gaming environment... yes also a 3D platform in which there are multiple opportunities.  I don't think you're an Anne Sullivan type but I'm sure we can expect amazing things from you.  I'm optimistic about what you will bring to the table.  Cheers and welcome aboard!
