[2018/05/05 10:57] Koni Lanzius: i see
[2018/05/05 10:57] albertlr Landar: But it does take two, the other is a booster.

[2018/05/05 10:59] jackie Baisch64 is Online
[2018/05/05 10:59] albertlr Landar: Yes, a National Guard plane with 9 soldiers had taken off going to Arizona, and it immediately experienced trouble, and was about to return to the air port, and went out of control and was spiraling down head first to the ground.
[2018/05/05 11:00] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: That is sad.
[2018/05/05 11:00] DJ Higher: aww

[2018/05/05 11:00] albertlr Landar: He was able to level off the plane and it landed on its belly, but exploded, and complete destroyed the plane and killed everyone. But avoided any casulties on the ground. No cars or semi's involved.

[2018/05/05 11:01] albertlr Landar: We lost internet for two days after.
[2018/05/05 11:01] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Hi LInda.

[2018/05/05 11:02] Azi Az is Online

[2018/05/05 11:03] Jeff Hall is Online

[2018/05/05 11:04] albertlr Landar: They all had families, so local hotels are providing accomodations for free for the families.
[2018/05/05 11:04] cilla teebrook: the seat next to be is empty

[2018/05/05 11:08] albertlr Landar: ThanKs EM please share that.
[2018/05/05 11:08] DJ Higher: thanks Em
[2018/05/05 11:09] albertlr Landar: Well anything going on this week, besides Cataplexia's birthday.
[2018/05/05 11:09] albertlr Landar: As I mentioned I have not been on the internet because of the crash for a few days.
[2018/05/05 11:09] Koni Lanzius: the University of Hawaii graduation was last night
[2018/05/05 11:09] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: We added our monetary system yesterday, and are progressing on rewriting the Firestorm Viewer.
[2018/05/05 11:09] albertlr Landar: So Just got back on yesterday after noon.
[2018/05/05 11:10] Koni Lanzius: went really well despite the Goddess Pele rainign hell on the big island
[2018/05/05 11:10] DJ Higher: yes crash and loading problems even tp problems i hear from alot people on the lbsa plaza
[2018/05/05 11:10] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: LOL
[2018/05/05 11:10] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Pele can be a bitch
[2018/05/05 11:10] albertlr Landar: On that sounds promising.
[2018/05/05 11:10] Koni Lanzius: hehe
[2018/05/05 11:10] Loco Admin: Boomer, you were going to add me to that?
[2018/05/05 11:10] Koni Lanzius: yes, Danger was there for support and it went incredibly smoothly
[2018/05/05 11:10] Mirror Amorasi: yes from people using Firestorm
[2018/05/05 11:11] Koni Lanzius: and was, I believe, and correct me if im wrong, the first ever graduation ceremony in OSG
[2018/05/05 11:11] Em Jannings: Hooray!
[2018/05/05 11:11] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: WE are looking ata workaround right now. Hyacinth had a neat idea, and Reza is coding it. A shortcut until we get the whole app rewritten. The deal killer is not having it dedciated to our world when it is downloaded. That is our first priority.
[2018/05/05 11:11] Koni Lanzius: I will have the video posted soon
[2018/05/05 11:11] Em Jannings: where do you post?
[2018/05/05 11:12] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Congratulations, Koni. :) Quite an accomplishment.
[2018/05/05 11:12] Arrwyll Barzane: whats wrong with the current FS?
[2018/05/05 11:12] albertlr Landar: Will you be renaming your version of the Firestorm Viewer?
[2018/05/05 11:12] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Probably. It is a radical departure..
[2018/05/05 11:12] amsterdam Bingyi: hello everybody
[2018/05/05 11:12] DJ Higher: hi peter
[2018/05/05 11:12] Foxx Bode: -*- HeLlO-*-
[2018/05/05 11:12] Koni Lanzius: I usually add them to my Archive.org site but I would like to post somewhere at the OSG site if we still do that
[2018/05/05 11:12] Linda Lightfoot: hoi Peter
[2018/05/05 11:12] Koni Lanzius: Peter! welcome!
[2018/05/05 11:13] amsterdam Bingyi: ty:)
[2018/05/05 11:13] albertlr Landar: So basically its going to me more emphysis of use with opensim, rather than SL.
[2018/05/05 11:13] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: MY goal is to remove completely all references to SL.
[2018/05/05 11:13] Em Jannings: the current vieweer has some voice problems with linux
[2018/05/05 11:13] Jeff Hall: how devs are working on tha new FS
[2018/05/05 11:14] Em Jannings: I'll help debug if you need volunteers
[2018/05/05 11:14] Jeff Hall: *hom many
[2018/05/05 11:14] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Thank you, Em.
[2018/05/05 11:14] Jeff Hall: *how many devs
[2018/05/05 11:14] Jeff Hall: ?
[2018/05/05 11:14] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Mainly Reza, my CTO. with some assistance.
[2018/05/05 11:15] Jeff Hall: ok
[2018/05/05 11:15] Arrwyll Barzane: so, there is nothing wrong with the current FS then ...?
[2018/05/05 11:15] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: It is a herculean project. he says somne of the code is ancient, and buried deep in multiple layers.
[2018/05/05 11:15] albertlr Landar: But otherwise Boomer you have your grid runing smoothly now?
[2018/05/05 11:15] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Plenty. The biggest problem is it is killing the hypergrid.
[2018/05/05 11:15] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Yes, very well, and using Version 9.2.
[2018/05/05 11:16] Loco Admin: As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, we have a crew working on mobile version based on FireStorm. Would be great to share the burden.
[2018/05/05 11:16] albertlr Landar: oh great
[2018/05/05 11:16] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: I am not sure how much we could contribute. Our focus is very narrow.
[2018/05/05 11:16] cilla teebrook: for both Apple & Android?
[2018/05/05 11:17] Loco Admin: Yes. It's a tiny viewer that actually runs all platforms with minor variation, because we're porting to C#
[2018/05/05 11:17] cilla teebrook: thank you
[2018/05/05 11:17] Loco Admin: Then compiling to native, as required on iOS
[2018/05/05 11:17] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: MY goal is a viewer anyone can place on their splash page for direct download, and basically fill in a form to dedicate it to their world. THis lack is what hs killed the HyperGrid and prevented development and growth.,
[2018/05/05 11:18] albertlr Landar: well that is sure going to help a lot Boomer.
[2018/05/05 11:19] albertlr Landar: If you have an questions about the Hypergrid remember that DIva was the primary person behind its design and implementation.
[2018/05/05 11:19] Loco Admin: Diva still around?
[2018/05/05 11:20] albertlr Landar: yes, she is still working there at the University in CA.
[2018/05/05 11:20] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Well, I do not foresee a short time frame. Phase one is to develop a down and dirty way to accomplish this. But it will not allow anyone without a good coder or two on staff to use it.
[2018/05/05 11:20] Koni Lanzius: Irvine?
[2018/05/05 11:20] albertlr Landar: yea, I believe that is correct.
[2018/05/05 11:20] Em Jannings: Christa Lopes -- and I think Irvine is right
[2018/05/05 11:21] Koni Lanzius: :)
[2018/05/05 11:21] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Hyacinth has become our primary developer for the grid aspect, and advises Reza on the Viewer project.
[2018/05/05 11:22] George Equus: http://www.ics.uci.edu/~lopes/
[2018/05/05 11:22] cilla teebrook: sorry to back up here.. but what were the requirements to be a tester for the new viewer?
[2018/05/05 11:22] Koni Lanzius: thanks George
[2018/05/05 11:22] George Equus: yw
[2018/05/05 11:22] albertlr Landar: https://twitter.com/divacanto
[2018/05/05 11:22] albertlr Landar: This is her twitter account.
[2018/05/05 11:23] Koni Lanzius: wow she teaches
[2018/05/05 11:23] Koni Lanzius: very cool
[2018/05/05 11:23] amsterdam Bingyi: I would like to know, is there something on osg website about the search for testers?
[2018/05/05 11:24] Em Jannings: is the project ready for that yet?
[2018/05/05 11:24] Loco Admin: When I asked "around", I meant literally in-world on the HG etc.
[2018/05/05 11:24] cilla teebrook: Boomer?
[2018/05/05 11:24] cilla teebrook: just a question about requirements needed
[2018/05/05 11:24] albertlr Landar: well OSgrid is not directly associated with the individual Viewer developers.
[2018/05/05 11:24] albertlr Landar: Each of them has their own websites.
[2018/05/05 11:24] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: Yes, Cilla?
[2018/05/05 11:25] cilla teebrook: giggles
[2018/05/05 11:25] albertlr Landar: You can go to their websites on our download page.
[2018/05/05 11:25] amsterdam Bingyi: ok
[2018/05/05 11:25] albertlr Landar: BTW, any that has a viewer that has OSgrid already set up in the viewer can have their viewer added to the OSgrid download page.
[2018/05/05 11:25] Loco Admin: Nice
[2018/05/05 11:26] albertlr Landar: That has been the policy
[2018/05/05 11:26] cilla teebrook: I'm just curious about how smart and what plateform .. maybe I'll ask him privately
[2018/05/05 11:27] amsterdam Bingyi: rl is calling, bye folks, see ya next time
[2018/05/05 11:27] Koni Lanzius: ok bye Peter
[2018/05/05 11:27] Em Jannings: bye
[2018/05/05 11:27] Jeff Hall: bye
[2018/05/05 11:28] Loco Admin: I'm unable to make the Tues Dev meetings, because of my work office hours. Was wondering if more of these dev topics are covered there, and if many attend.
[2018/05/05 11:28] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: We are working on Windows 64 and 32, as well as Linux and Mac. LInux and mac are available for download at our web page, but the Windows versions are proving much more challenging.
[2018/05/05 11:28] Loco Admin: I find the IRC channels and forums useful, however. (Thanks Foxx)
[2018/05/05 11:28] albertlr Landar: yes, you will find much more detail and discussion on at the Dev Meetings.
[2018/05/05 11:29] albertlr Landar: 'You will find the chat from each meeting posted in our wiki each week.

[2018/05/05 11:31] Koni Lanzius: Em can you describe it for us?
[2018/05/05 11:31] Em Jannings whispers: :))
[2018/05/05 11:31] Koni Lanzius: hehe
[2018/05/05 11:32] Koni Lanzius: it would make a killer theme for our next donation drive
[2018/05/05 11:32] Em Jannings: it's a flat prim with a soccer field graphic and transparent abrriers around the sides
[2018/05/05 11:32] Em Jannings: it uses a physical ball
[2018/05/05 11:32] Em Jannings: we playd some game on Metro

[2018/05/05 11:32] Em Jannings: 10 minute halfs
[2018/05/05 11:32] albertlr Landar: and what physics does it use?

[2018/05/05 11:32] cilla teebrook: i played SL football & soccer for a few years.. is why fun
[2018/05/05 11:33] Koni Lanzius: good question, Albertlr

[2018/05/05 11:33] cilla teebrook: way
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: nothing fancy
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: the spectators came with animations and cheers
[2018/05/05 11:33] Koni Lanzius: do you find any lag during the game?
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: no lag in soccer
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: that's american football
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: (ha ha )
[2018/05/05 11:33] Koni Lanzius: our donation drives tend to have high concurrency
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: we had about 20 people on the region
[2018/05/05 11:33] cilla teebrook: oh yes .. so which are you refering too
[2018/05/05 11:33] Em Jannings: didn't crash
[2018/05/05 11:34] Koni Lanzius: cool
[2018/05/05 11:34] Em Jannings: it would be easy to set up a tournament
[2018/05/05 11:34] Koni Lanzius: there is always the old raglan shire trick if large numbers did cuase lag
[2018/05/05 11:34] Em Jannings: 4 on a side makes it easy to form teams
[2018/05/05 11:34] albertlr Landar: hum sounds very promising.
[2018/05/05 11:34] Mirror Amorasi is Offline
[2018/05/05 11:34] Em Jannings: teams could make a donation to play
[2018/05/05 11:35] Em Jannings: Koini will referee
[2018/05/05 11:35] Koni Lanzius: put the bleachers on one sim and the field right next to it on anoither
[2018/05/05 11:35] cilla teebrook: we had to put the players on a separate sim from the audience and cheerleaders
[2018/05/05 11:35] Jeff Hall: ive made a sim having more than 150 balls bouncing everywhere in all directions, its called CheckPoint and is located in Metropolis
[2018/05/05 11:35] Koni Lanzius: ~** HAHAHA! **~
[2018/05/05 11:35] Koni Lanzius: ahhhh, no.
[2018/05/05 11:35] Em Jannings: 150!
[2018/05/05 11:35] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: lol sounds fun
[2018/05/05 11:35] Koni Lanzius: yea we could really jazz this up and make it fun
[2018/05/05 11:35] Koni Lanzius: cheerleaders team flags
[2018/05/05 11:35] Em Jannings: cilla - you had a big crowd
[2018/05/05 11:36] albertlr Landar: so the purpose is to see if one suvives the balls?
[2018/05/05 11:36] Jeff Hall: haha Albert
[2018/05/05 11:36] Em Jannings: the purpose is to win of course
[2018/05/05 11:36] Em Jannings: after having a lot of fun
[2018/05/05 11:36] albertlr Landar: ok
[2018/05/05 11:36] Jeff Hall: no its funny in fact and u can ride a vehicle through it:)
[2018/05/05 11:36] Em Jannings: fun trumps winning
[2018/05/05 11:36] Koni Lanzius: so Jeff's is a bit different
[2018/05/05 11:36] cilla teebrook: i missed out what you might of said how the $$ are earned
[2018/05/05 11:36] Jeff Hall: yes its not a game
[2018/05/05 11:37] Em Jannings: one way would be teams pay an "entry fee" in the form of a donation to the grid
[2018/05/05 11:37] Em Jannings: or we could sell brauts and beer
[2018/05/05 11:37] Koni Lanzius: Em 's is at team sport event
[2018/05/05 11:37] Em Jannings: we didn't do any of that in my previous experience
[2018/05/05 11:37] Koni Lanzius: yes we can brainstorm ways to invite donations
[2018/05/05 11:38] albertlr Landar: well there are two ways to raise funds for the campaign.
[2018/05/05 11:38] cilla teebrook: for points
[2018/05/05 11:38] Em Jannings: the field i made has advertising boards
[2018/05/05 11:38] Koni Lanzius: but i bet it would be quite popular if we eliminate the tech issues
[2018/05/05 11:38] albertlr Landar: One is out right donation.
[2018/05/05 11:38] Em Jannings: we could put osgrid ads there
[2018/05/05 11:38] Koni Lanzius: yea
[2018/05/05 11:38] albertlr Landar: the other is long term donation each month.
[2018/05/05 11:38] cilla teebrook: yet that sounds like poker thingy
[2018/05/05 11:38] Koni Lanzius: yes
[2018/05/05 11:38] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: I am sorry, but we are off to play grandparents with Daisy in RL. Bye everyone. Thank you.
[2018/05/05 11:39] Em Jannings: bye boomer
[2018/05/05 11:39] Jeff Hall: bye boomer
[2018/05/05 11:39] cilla teebrook: bye boomer
[2018/05/05 11:39] Koni Lanzius: ok see ya Boomer
[2018/05/05 11:39] albertlr Landar: And one thing we want to try to encourge this year, is more long term donations.
[2018/05/05 11:39] Boomer.McBooms @terraworldz.com:8002: :)
[2018/05/05 11:39] Em Jannings: in a way the tech problems are part of the fun
[2018/05/05 11:39] Koni Lanzius: ok
[2018/05/05 11:39] Koni Lanzius: i will give that some thoiught
[2018/05/05 11:39] Em Jannings: we all know by now that stuff just happens sometimes
[2018/05/05 11:39] Koni Lanzius: hehe
[2018/05/05 11:39] albertlr Landar: And one thing they do in public radio is call this catagory a Sustainer.
[2018/05/05 11:39] Koni Lanzius: thats the spirit!
[2018/05/05 11:39] albertlr Landar: So something we may consider adopting.
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: like the Patreon thing?
[2018/05/05 11:40] Em Jannings: a sustainer as in the annual tournament?
[2018/05/05 11:40] albertlr Landar: yea.
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: a couple of groups in other grids have started that
[2018/05/05 11:40] Em Jannings: this is a world cup year
[2018/05/05 11:40] albertlr Landar: Or being a Patron is another term.
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: yes, see?
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: perfect timing
[2018/05/05 11:40] Em Jannings: at some future it would be wonderful to have a hypergrid championship
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: when is the next donation event Albirtlr?
[2018/05/05 11:40] Koni Lanzius: yes!
[2018/05/05 11:40] albertlr Landar: probably after the Annual Birthday in July.
[2018/05/05 11:41] albertlr Landar: We will set a date at the next board meeting.
[2018/05/05 11:41] Koni Lanzius: oh and first, should we wait for approval to move forward on planning?
[2018/05/05 11:41] Em Jannings: I had this field up at the last birthday
[2018/05/05 11:41] Koni Lanzius: ok
[2018/05/05 11:41] Em Jannings: for people to mess with
[2018/05/05 11:41] albertlr Landar: discussions can go on all the time.
[2018/05/05 11:41] Koni Lanzius: i haven't seen it yet
[2018/05/05 11:41] Koni Lanzius: ok
[2018/05/05 11:42] Em Jannings: oh
[2018/05/05 11:42] Em Jannings: I have uniforms too -- Tizzee made them
[2018/05/05 11:42] Em Jannings: but they aren't mesh
[2018/05/05 11:42] Em Jannings: lol
[2018/05/05 11:42] albertlr Landar: And if need be the idea of the socker event could be part of the Birthday
[2018/05/05 11:42] Koni Lanzius: can we put the OSG logo on them?
[2018/05/05 11:42] albertlr Landar: Sure.
[2018/05/05 11:43] Koni Lanzius: cool beans
[2018/05/05 11:43] albertlr Landar: We really need some new t shirt for the 2018 Birthday, which will be the 11th I believe.
[2018/05/05 11:44] Em Jannings: I suggest making a new shirt specific to that birthday
[2018/05/05 11:44] Em Jannings: so people can start a collection the next year
[2018/05/05 11:44] Koni Lanzius: Albirtlr has the admin guys thought about https://www.patreon.com/ for monthly donations?

[2018/05/05 11:48] albertlr Landar: I will go a head an post an announcement about it once I get it confirmed in the forums and set it up about the Birthday.
[2018/05/05 11:48] Jeff Hall: lol yes
[2018/05/05 11:48] Jeff Hall: no reason to break it before a weekend
[2018/05/05 11:49] Koni Lanzius: what are the typical activities connected to the OSG birthdays? I know we do the sim exhibits
[2018/05/05 11:49] albertlr Landar: I moved all the old Birthdays forums to an archive to clean up things.
[2018/05/05 11:49] Koni Lanzius: a dance
[2018/05/05 11:49] albertlr Landar: Mainly exhibits, but events are always welcome. We have had dramas and plays, and dances etc.
[2018/05/05 11:49] Koni Lanzius: oh thats right
[2018/05/05 11:50] albertlr Landar: Interactive exhibts with NPC's
[2018/05/05 11:50] Em Jannings: maybe we could bring back speed build
[2018/05/05 11:50] Koni Lanzius: yes those are fun
[2018/05/05 11:50] albertlr Landar: YEa, just need someone to get it going.
[2018/05/05 11:50] Jeff Hall: im here for making an exhibit
[2018/05/05 11:50] Koni Lanzius: hint hint ;)
[2018/05/05 11:50] Jeff Hall: as every year:)
[2018/05/05 11:51] Em Jannings: It would be nice to have some times when exhibitors would be around
[2018/05/05 11:51] Koni Lanzius: yea, like the particle exhibit
[2018/05/05 11:51] Koni Lanzius: that one was very interactive and fun
[2018/05/05 11:52] Em Jannings: I'd set time aside if I could neet some of them
[2018/05/05 11:52] Koni Lanzius: meet n greet?
[2018/05/05 11:52] Koni Lanzius: cool idea
[2018/05/05 11:52] Em Jannings: yes - not for hours and hours
[2018/05/05 11:52] Jeff Hall: last year it was my little steam train with people all over
[2018/05/05 11:52] Jeff Hall: :)
[2018/05/05 11:52] Em Jannings: yes
[2018/05/05 11:52] albertlr Landar: well last year, we still have another Birthday region available that was not used.
[2018/05/05 11:52] Koni Lanzius: yea that rocked, Jeff!
[2018/05/05 11:52] albertlr Landar: So we do have room for growth.
[2018/05/05 11:53] albertlr Landar: And people are not limited to just one exhibit.
[2018/05/05 11:53] albertlr Landar: As long as we still have room.
[2018/05/05 11:53] Koni Lanzius: ahh
[2018/05/05 11:54] Koni Lanzius: maybe Em could do a "soccer practice" exhibit :)
[2018/05/05 11:55] albertlr Landar: well that is what I thought.
[2018/05/05 11:55] Koni Lanzius: kick the ball around a bit :D
[2018/05/05 11:55] Koni Lanzius: fun!
[2018/05/05 11:55] Em Jannings: be glad to
[2018/05/05 11:55] Koni Lanzius: yay!
[2018/05/05 11:55] Em Jannings: getting people doing things is the strength of this environment
[2018/05/05 11:55] Koni Lanzius: yea :)
[2018/05/05 11:56] Koni Lanzius: that and the sense of community
[2018/05/05 11:56] Em Jannings: yes
[2018/05/05 11:56] Em Jannings: so having exhibitors around to chat would be great
[2018/05/05 11:56] Koni Lanzius: you really see the diff when you go to a for pay grid
[2018/05/05 11:57] Em Jannings: and that's why many of us are here
[2018/05/05 11:57] Em Jannings: instead of there
[2018/05/05 11:57] Em Jannings: :)
[2018/05/05 11:57] Koni Lanzius: yeps
[2018/05/05 11:57] Koni Lanzius: love OSG
[2018/05/05 11:57] Koni Lanzius: best place evar
[2018/05/05 11:57] Loco Admin: :)
[2018/05/05 11:58] albertlr Landar: well I saw where OGgrid seems to be the most used grid these days.
[2018/05/05 11:59] Koni Lanzius: one other thought as part of the donation drive is doing tribute band performances with those cool avatars folks are brining in from those websites
[2018/05/05 11:59] Koni Lanzius: yes, impressive figures indeed
[2018/05/05 11:59] Em Jannings: new avatars?
[2018/05/05 11:59] Koni Lanzius: someon gave me a Kurt Cobain av that really rocks
[2018/05/05 11:59] albertlr Landar: meaning real life personality avatars.
[2018/05/05 12:00] albertlr Landar: are these mesh BTW.
[2018/05/05 12:00] Jeff Hall: i have a long term thought about public places albert
[2018/05/05 12:00] albertlr Landar: ok
[2018/05/05 12:01] Jeff Hall: could we envision to revamp and give an OSGrid signature?
[2018/05/05 12:01] albertlr Landar: hum clarify that?
[2018/05/05 12:01] Jeff Hall: like Event Plaza, not tlaking about special event but make it more special
[2018/05/05 12:01] Jeff Hall: its quite early 2000
[2018/05/05 12:02] albertlr Landar: oh you mean redesign it.
[2018/05/05 12:02] Jeff Hall: and very neutral
[2018/05/05 12:02] Jeff Hall: yes
[2018/05/05 12:02] George Equus: Wright Plaza could probably do with a face lift too. some cleanup
[2018/05/05 12:02] albertlr Landar: well I am sure that it can always be discussed.
[2018/05/05 12:02] Jeff Hall: we have a builders team here
[2018/05/05 12:02] Em Jannings: ooo
[2018/05/05 12:02] Em Jannings: I didn't know that
[2018/05/05 12:03] albertlr Landar: And Wright has been under discussion for some time now. That is why we are no here on Hurliman, not just because of the lag.
[2018/05/05 12:03] albertlr Landar: now
[2018/05/05 12:03] Em Jannings: Wright amd lag are synonymous
[2018/05/05 12:03] Jeff Hall: Event Plaza should be too since its a window for hypergriders comeing to meet us
[2018/05/05 12:03] Jeff Hall: lbsa too
[2018/05/05 12:04] Jeff Hall: is just a thought i had
[2018/05/05 12:04] Em Jannings: so there sould be some effort directed at these windows>
[2018/05/05 12:04] Em Jannings: where others get first impressions
[2018/05/05 12:04] Jeff Hall: thinking of redesign
[2018/05/05 12:04] albertlr Landar: Yea, well it gets a make over all the time with the various events. But some evolution should be possible I would assume.
[2018/05/05 12:04] Jeff Hall: making it WOW!
[2018/05/05 12:04] Em Jannings: Visit Craft World for a good example
[2018/05/05 12:04] George Equus: any interior decorators around here?
[2018/05/05 12:04] Jeff Hall: being careful about lag of course
[2018/05/05 12:05] Em Jannings: the kitely entrance grid is well done too
[2018/05/05 12:05] albertlr Landar: Lets talk with Dan about that, he can always put up a dup event plaza and see if some want to try to enhance it I guess.
[2018/05/05 12:05] Jeff Hall: i mean the standard ones albert
[2018/05/05 12:05] Jeff Hall: and can work on events one of course:)
[2018/05/05 12:06] Jeff Hall: anyways i just mention
[2018/05/05 12:06] Em Jannings: I think it's a good point
[2018/05/05 12:06] albertlr Landar: I will bring it up, and see what the Board says.
[2018/05/05 12:06] albertlr Landar: I know we had talked in the past about some of this.
[2018/05/05 12:07] Jeff Hall: yes
[2018/05/05 12:07] Jeff Hall: Fuu included:)
[2018/05/05 12:07] George Equus: another area that really need attention is the World Map on the web site
[2018/05/05 12:07] albertlr Landar: But the biggest problem is getting people that would be part of the effort to make those changes, and stick with it
[2018/05/05 12:07] George Equus: work horribly bad in both IE and Forefox,
[2018/05/05 12:07] Loco Admin: Agreed. Difficult to locate proper region placement
[2018/05/05 12:07] George Equus: very
[2018/05/05 12:07] Jeff Hall: we have a Event Builders group
[2018/05/05 12:08] Jeff Hall: but need a skiilled leader
[2018/05/05 12:08] albertlr Landar: Another problem is the old saying a camel is a horse designed by a group.
[2018/05/05 12:08] Loco Admin: lmao
[2018/05/05 12:08] Koni Lanzius: ~** HAHAHA! **~
[2018/05/05 12:08] Em Jannings: lol
[2018/05/05 12:08] Em Jannings: so did camels do event plaza?
[2018/05/05 12:08] Koni Lanzius: i hear that! ;p
[2018/05/05 12:08] Loco Admin: oh my
[2018/05/05 12:08] albertlr Landar: never know.
[2018/05/05 12:09] Arrwyll Barzane: time for me to take off - take care everyone
[2018/05/05 12:09] albertlr Landar: well if that is all.
[2018/05/05 12:09] albertlr Landar: We should disband for this week.
