Hello all. I am currently on a camping trip in the forest. Roasting marshmellos and making smores has been a lot of fun. For some reason Walmart and safeway were out of dry ice and firewood but we made do. I guess it is a little late for labor day camping trip but I like to avoid the crowd.
I am writing this on my new android 2phone which is pretty cool. I would have gone droid x but a physical keyboard is better.
I haven’t triedloading second life but I hope that will be coming soon. Enjoy life my friends. Be back soon.
One of the most earth shattering yet glossed over changes will be that Teen Second Life will be discontinued. Teens age 16 and above will be allowed into the Main Grid. The teen grid will be shut down on December 31, 2010.
In what can only be called a disappointing launch of their Viewer 2 for Second Life, Linden Lab focused on their goals instead of incorporating feedback of their residents.
That approach obviously didn’t work and now Linden Lab is again changing course and attempting to incorporate more feedback and even code with the new open development program Project Snowstorm.
Linden Lab is going Agile in a very big way “Linden Lab has adopted the Scrum framework”. Anyone who knows anything about Agile knows that it initially makes everything much worse as the developers struggle with the different methodology and even terminology (backlog, daily scrum, use cases, retrospectives, user stories, sprints, etc. LET MAMA WATCH HER STORIES!) I can speak from personal experience that it can often decrease productivity. Agile doesn’t solve the problem of bad programmers or a poor work ethic. Only proper motivation and confidence in the company and employees can do that.
The problem is it isn’t working. Search is not improving and is arguably worse than ever. It is time for Linden Lab to break down and hire a Google Search Expert to fix the broken search. Obviously your employees working on Search do not have the necessary skills or knowledge to fix the problem.
Here is a suggestion Linden Lab. Hire on a contract basis a Google Search Expert (from Google if necessary) and fix this problem!
Alright I have kept silent long enough. What is with the Second Life Blog formatting. In both Firefox and Chrome the text of the “Featured Posts” is laying half on top of the images next to them. I mean, do you guys never check this or what? Maybe it is my resolution (which is pretty standard) but I do not think so. I hope when you upgrade the blog software version you also take the time to fix this glaring and long running error. See the screenshot for proof:
But one of the sorely lacking features of the game is an integrated Weather System. I can’t really understand why this is not allowed on a regular basis. The level of interest that rain, fog, snow, etc would add to the game provides limitless potential.
