Don’t let it happen to you.



About those Neighbors

In internet, Lapara, Weekend update on March 20, 2020 at 4:33 pm

I had these neighbors.  They had a horse farm and a DFS farm.  Scripts went above 7000 in the sim.  Trains wouldn’t run on time.  I had to retime the entire sensor network.  Bus service had to stop.  It took me a while to figure out the cause, I thought it was Second Life, but then why does Lapara work so well?

They abandoned onto the next sim.  Everything went back to normal.  Other people abandoned.

Then one day, they came back.  They bought the entire strip.  I’m grateful that there is life, however it’s a couple municipal buildings and a loading dock.  But mainly, it’s market stalls.

Laggy Market Stalls.

And a puppy mill.

Scripts are increasing by 100 per day in the load.  I can’t even turn a scooter.

This sim performance meter never goes to the top.  I have never seen one of these measure such poor performance.  Sometimes it even turns yellow whilst I just stand and stare at it.


Second Life’s only integrated signal crossing

Traffic signal, klaxon, arm, and trains you won’t find anywhere else, nowhere else.

Prim shift, shifting prims, oh my

In internet, Lapara, New Technology on September 11, 2019 at 12:03 pm

The concept of prim shift has been a theory (to the best of my knowledge) for years.  When you have 13,000 prims to track, you start wondering if you really made that many mistakes, or have gotten that sloppy.

Today’s RC channel roll has proved “prim shift”.  It is so bad, that a 2 mile commuter route is now shut down.


You can see the guide floating way up in the air.  Also, a teleporter is about 10 feet high too.

It should be noted that this piece is almost 5 years old.  It has not been touched in FIVE years.

And below are various other incidents documented recently:


Discovered August 22nd.  This was originally rezzed, and never moved since August 22, 2010.  9 years exactly.  It is still off at the moment slightly.






These are all recent as the shift has gotten worse recently.  It was never really much more than a minor glitch when something moves an inch, or turns to the side, but now we’re finding objects being lobbed several feet.

I put this one up on the main Second Life group as well.  Testing how the embed looks in the Blog, and seeing what can be done.


The A Line

More tests of the SL EEP project

In the future you will get bombarded with EEP news and announcements.  Before you do, I will bombard you first as we’re on the beta!

Messing with a colder day cycle.



Now happening, Cruise from Bergen to the far north(Norway)

In internet, ships, Streaming on June 19, 2011 at 12:38 am

We had just caught wind of a live streaming cruise.  A six day Journey(which started 2 days ago, sorry) and is streaming via nine cameras.  I recommend playing with the features, such as radar, and 3D.  Also you can place the main video into full screen.

Also notice the midnight sun!


Edit.  Now that it is over, the link is planned to still work and plays in it’s entirety.  Also it is also apparent that I am not the only one fascinated by this.  It was the most popular broadcast in Norway over the weekend.   We here are hoping for the full 30 disk DVD/Blu-ray set this Christmas(and a blu-ray player!)
