Ahoy! I guess y’all received this email sent to us by the friendly neighbourhood lab:
… and the fluff party rolls on for a while longer. Ugh, come on, read it yourself. And the mail is ok-ish. I have nothing to complain about. What I found much more disturbing was a blogpost by SL-famous Inara Pey:
Can it be the good old – and usually very trustworthy – Inara has mutated into a (paid) shill for the lab? I was particularly startled by this portion of her post:
the Lab is diverting all of its resources into Sansar at SL’s expense.
Neither assessment is accurate – asthe Lab has repeatedly tried to state.
That’s news for me. Last thing I’ve heard was the complete opposite. Remember what Ebbe said in an interview when he was asked directly?
I commented on Inara’s blog already. Maybe some other concerned SL residents care to leave a comment as well. Oh, well, yes, I know the cannibal story is like almost 2 years old by now … but still. What was said, was said.
By the way …
Yes, I did it. Applied for an Sansar account and it was granted. Holy shit, what a disrespectful, treacherous traitor this Orca is. 😦 A real meaniepooface. But wait, hear me out please. I’m doing it all just for you! You know, stunt avie and all? Really wanna find out if I can even connect to Sansar and how laggy it is on average hardware without any added VR shit. Also it might take days before I finally muster up enough nerves to plunge into that “experience”.
Oh, and didn’t the Lab just state that we can’t access Sansar on Linux? Hmmm, seems it might take a few more years before I can finally log in.
But then another kindasorta positive aspect of Inara’s post was this snippet:
The infrastructure work has been on-going for some time – most recently the Lab has deployed a new simulator build using a more recent version of Linux, and a further operating system update will also be forthcoming.
(Boldening by me)
See that? Did you know our beloved grid, our most favourite virtual world, was Linux-powered? I mean it was clear, was it not? 99% of the internet and other networks are running on Linux, why should SL be an exception? Don’t you feel obliged now to at least give it a try if Linux wouldn’t it be a positive impact on your personal desktop as well?
Okay, ’nuff of that shit for today. It’s cold and rainy outside, even colder and damp inside the house. To make it short, this ain’t really a comfy atmosphere. So I should stop thinking uncomfy thoughts and posting uncomfy posts but instead jump back into bed. Oh yes, best idea ever.
