    Signed out everytime I login

    That message usually means that the server is not getting messages from your viewer reliably (too many lost). Check any firewall on your system, and reboot your router and cable or dsl modem (usually it's best to turn both off, turn on the modem and wait for it to come up to normal lights, then turn on your router).

    Animesh and LI sky rocketing

    Without commenting now on whether or not we have the specific cost correct (the people that chose that value know much more about it than I do), it is not correct that Land Impact exists only to protect or account for server side resources. Viewers lag too, and objects that produce unnecessary viewer lag have a large negative impact on the experience of Second Life. Land Impact exists not only to limit what you can put out, but to encourage efficient content. Animesh objects are more work for a viewer to process; the increment to LI exists to reflect that cost.

    Anyone else having voice issues?

    Check what your system sees as the IP address for www.bhr.vivox.com (that's the voice service for the main grid). In a terminal window, type: nslookup www.bhr.vivox.com The correct answer is If you do not get that answer, it means that your system is trying to contact the wrong service. Rebooting your system may fix it; if not, it should correct itself eventually (the actual problem has already been fixed, but some DNS servers are incorrectly still giving out old addresses or otherwise failing to provide the correct one above).

    Advice on http error codes, please

    llHTTPRequest will return a null key whenever there is any error that does not send a request, so you could do something like key request_id = llHTTPRequest(strURL, [HTTP_METHOD,"POST"],llList2String(lRequestsToBeProcessed, 0)) ; if (request_id == NULL_KEY) { llOwnerSay("invalid url " + strURL); }

    Advice on http error codes, please

    No request is sent for that error, and no response is generated. It is true that some url parameters that were actually invalid used to be accepted and are now rejected by stricter tests. Feel free to post examples.
  7. Don't believe everything you hear. We are not phasing out classic avatars.
  8. We have that now under Preferences > Advanced. The slider is labeled "UI Size". Use with some caution - it's hard to test everything in the UI for all languages at all sizes, so this slider has been referred to as the "UI Bug Slider", but it does make things much bigger. For example, I'm going to have to edit my preferences by hand to undo it after this demo because I made it so big that the "Ok" button on the Preferences no longer fits on my (not very large) monitor:
  9. That won't change from the way it is now: if you select a personal environment (for example, by selecting "Midday", but it can be anything you pick), then that applies until you choose "Use Shared Environment" or until the end of your session.
  10. The ability of an Experience to set an environment has not yet been released (soon!), so whatever is happening there is not Experience-based.
  11. any time you go from one environment to another, whether by moving to where a new one is in effect or because a day cycle is changing, the setting interpolate. For movement the change takes a few seconds.
  12. Our monitoring doesn't show that. If you are having repeated problems that you can describe more specifically, we could try to help diagnose them, but Jira is a better way to communicate about them than the forum. If you have local recording capability on your system, recording the audio for one of your sessions (with the informed permission of the participants) would be one way to start diagnosing voice issues (many problems produce recognizable audio artifacts). We could also help you learn to do packet captures of the relevant network traffic for analysis.

    ping time

    The speed of light in optical fiber is about 1/3 slower than in a vacuum (the number you used), and there are lots of electronics in the way (a repeater about every 15km on undersea cable, for example).

    ping time

    Sorry ... that's not possible. You were not doing what you thought you were doing. The speed of light isn't that fast. animats is correct; the 'ping' time in the viewer measures the viewer->simulator->viewer time with the message being handled at the application level at both ends, so it is affected by the load at either end as well as the network you're sending over.

    SL Viewer fails to launch

    No idea, but your request for the logs is the correct next step.
