  1. Many of them are also in the Library
  2. Problems like those above can be caused by your home router not being able to handle the volume of UDP traffic being sent and received by the viewer. Have you tried power cycling your cable modem and/or router?
  3. Exactly so. Since uplift, all http-out requests from simulators go through shared proxies (as I explained in another thread). It used to be that scripts that ignored error responses and repeated the requests only impacted the performance of that one region, but now they also impact both the performance and reliability of other scripts across the grid making requests, but they also harm the reputation of SL (causing hosting providers to block access from our services). By sending these error reports, we're trying to get owners to discontinue using scripts that are just repeating reque
  4. About 11 years ago I was working for a big multinational that had acquired the startup where I'd been for several years, and decided I needed a job with more fun and more job satisfaction. I put out the word on my professional network and got a response from a colleague who was a Linden at the time. I interviewed with several people at the Lab (half my interviews were in-world using an account I'd had for some years), and after much thought I joined the Lab as the Director of Open Source. It turned out to be one of the best career decisions I ever made. My job evolved over the years, but
  5. Unfortunately, this is the biggest reason. The user interface system in the viewer does not currently support right-to-left text.
  6. This is the symptom that you get if something is dropping your UDP packets. Check all the firewalls on your system and network.
  7. ... but please don't do that with a timer that fires more often than once every few minutes; it's a waste of the simulator script time to check more frequently than that.
  8. Not so. I hate to break it to you, but you can't see most of the people who do the most of the real work. That position was filled internally, not cancelled.
  9. I missed the question (I had a lot going on outside the meeting and was multitasking, sorry). I do my best not to predict dates because it doesn't add anything when I'm right, and does a lot of harm when I'm wrong. We have one of our most skilled developers devoted to getting map tile generation working again - it's one of those things that hadn't been touched in a long time and needed more work than we expected.
  10. It's peripherally related. That product uses a HUD in the target region. When rezzed, the HUD provides a UUID key that you need to enter into the controller program on your PC. That key is part of the URL for the HUD, but the domain name part of that URL has also changed. If you have modifiable source, you can modify the HUD to put out its full URL instead of just the key, and modify the controller to use that URL instead of constructing one using a fixed domain and that key. If you don't, then I'm afraid it's permanently broken.
  11. No. Doing so would make it easier to use SL as a spam source.
  12. As others have guessed, one backend service has a bug. We hope to fix it quickly after the holidays. You can still buy regions by putting in a Support request.
  13. What you describe matches what happens when a firewall is dropping messages between your viewer and the simulator. Check your antivirus and windows firewall.
