Since my last post Second Life hasn’t been really much better. Lindenlab is still good at producing what’s their own speciality – lags over lags over lags and ah bad gaming experience.
Well, to top it even, all logins to Second Life are disabled because the ISP of Lindenlab is having problems with their infrastructure and handling all the traffic, so they tell. Well… might be even right, who knows, stuff like that happens, but good hosting providers have got backup lines just in case for that, redundant connections, they are running if big enough a system called BGP with an autonomous system which even adds more to the reliability of a system.
Well, because Lindenlab quite well knows what they got on their blog when an issue like that opens up again – thousands of angry comments – it became lately their policy to just disable comments for such postings.
On the last case, though, one comment from Second Aimee made it through, before they closed it. She encouraged the people to comment on her blog instead, which the people are now gladly doing.
So this is quite a good chance again to get an unfiltered picture about what are people thinking about Second Life, opinions, which aren’t really showing up on the corporate blog anymore.
One asks for example:
Why is SL always screwed up on Weekends Grrrr
Simple – because weekends mean usage peeks and the most stress for the system, which it is unable to handle.
Another one just finds interesting prim objects in real life:
WHAT IS THAT 1 PRIM OBJECT IN THE CORNER OF MY ROOM AND HOW DO i SCRIPT
IT?? SOMEBODY CALLED IT A TELEVISION ONCE. THINK ILL TURN IT ON..
But most are just plainly annoyed right now and venting off some steam, like:
yeah UP YOURS Linden Labs!!! I have over 200,000 dollars(Lindens)
invested in my freakin inventory alone,and that isnt including what I
spent on my Avi, like are u freaking kiddin me? All I get back is a
bald head, a freakin boot up my ass that wont even come out even if i
click detach and now I cant log in to pull the boot out of my ass and
find my hair??? WHAT did I do to you besides spend real cash for this
So… the typical collection of comments on such a matter. New CTO, anyone? /me sighs.
