[2018/06/23 11:03] albertlr Landar: well not sure how long opensim will continue to run on mac's as it looks like they are going to abandon the use of opensl I heard.
[2018/06/23 11:03] albertlr Landar: But that might be a future problem.

[2018/06/23 11:12] George Equus: Don't think so
[2018/06/23 11:14] George Equus is Online
[2018/06/23 11:14] Wizard Atazoth: probably afk
[2018/06/23 11:14] Wizard Atazoth: wb albertlr
[2018/06/23 11:14] dan banner: so there are birthday regions online
[2018/06/23 11:14] albertlr Landar: had to relog, my chat stopped working
[2018/06/23 11:14] dan banner: parcels are available
[2018/06/23 11:15] dan banner: osg11b1 has like 3 spots left
[2018/06/23 11:15] Dee King: Oh there you are
[2018/06/23 11:15] dan banner: but theres 3 more regions for parcels
[2018/06/23 11:15] Wizard Atazoth: Awesomes!
[2018/06/23 11:15] albertlr Landar: Oh so they are going well.
[2018/06/23 11:15] albertlr Landar: And each region holds 15 parcels?
[2018/06/23 11:15] dan banner: anyone that wants a spot just let me or another admin know
[2018/06/23 11:16] dan banner: ya i think theres like 15 or 16 per sim
[2018/06/23 11:16] paela argus: but not me :D
[2018/06/23 11:17] albertlr Landar: I noticed last year during the fundraiser that my Singularity chat stops working if I get too many IM's for some reason.
[2018/06/23 11:17] albertlr Landar: I was hoping it would get fixed by now.
[2018/06/23 11:18] dan banner: thats never happened to me albert
[2018/06/23 11:18] albertlr Landar: But this year we want to encourage the displays to emphysise people to contribure monthly donations to OSgrid if they are not already doing so.
[2018/06/23 11:18] Danger Lytton is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:18] albertlr Landar: well I have their latest beta.
[2018/06/23 11:19] Wizard Atazoth: hmm good theme
[2018/06/23 11:19] Danger Lytton is Online
[2018/06/23 11:20] albertlr Landar: I think we can distribute some of those donation boxes to those with displays that want to participate, which connects to the donation page.
[2018/06/23 11:21] Dee King: is it hard to get donations ?
[2018/06/23 11:21] paela argus is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:21] albertlr Landar: Or at least have some in the common areas of the Birthday Regions.
[2018/06/23 11:21] albertlr Landar: Well if we don't ask, we don't get enough to cover things.
[2018/06/23 11:21] albertlr Landar: Thats basically the problem.
[2018/06/23 11:22] albertlr Landar: And we are going to have another fundraiser in September for a week.
[2018/06/23 11:22] albertlr Landar: Last year we set a goal of $3,000 and we met that with a few hundred over that.
[2018/06/23 11:22] albertlr Landar: So it was decided to go for the same goal this year.
[2018/06/23 11:23] albertlr Landar: But during the Birthday we just want to remind people that the monthly donations help us the most.
[2018/06/23 11:24] albertlr Landar: Most of our donations are through paypal, and we pay most of our bills through that.
[2018/06/23 11:24] albertlr Landar: And have found if we maintain a balance of at least $3,000 in paypal, we can cover almost all expenses.
[2018/06/23 11:25] albertlr Landar: We have about $1,500 in a back up checking account, and what to increase that so that some future expenses of moving our asset server for instnace to new equipment will be covered.
[2018/06/23 11:26] albertlr Landar: So over all we are in pretty good shape financially, but we just want to maintain that going forward.
[2018/06/23 11:26] Aquarius Dragon is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:27] albertlr Landar: We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization here in the US.
[2018/06/23 11:28] albertlr Landar: But the use of OSgrid is free and open to everyone, but we still have expenses to pay.
[2018/06/23 11:28] Aquarius Dragon is Online
[2018/06/23 11:28] albertlr Landar: So fundraising is necessary to keep going.
[2018/06/23 11:29] albertlr Landar: No one is paid on OSgrid, all our work here is volunteered.
[2018/06/23 11:30] albertlr Landar: So we can say this truly a community supported grid.
[2018/06/23 11:30] albertlr Landar: Well does anyone have anything else they would like to bring up this week.
[2018/06/23 11:31] albertlr Landar: I do see that Hypergrid Business is still posting articles, despite Maria saying she was cutting back on things there.
[2018/06/23 11:34] Dee King: im so new to opensim i just cant think of anything that isnt very basic
[2018/06/23 11:34] albertlr Landar: I will repeat again that the next meeting of the Membership will be held here on Hurliman Plaza on August 5th, 2018 at 11 AM. That is a Sunday.
[2018/06/23 11:34] albertlr Landar: Well you are more than welcome to ask about basic things too.
[2018/06/23 11:35] albertlr Landar: Feel free to bring up anything you want Dee
[2018/06/23 11:35] DJ Higher is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:35] Dee King: ok wouldn't a way to make more money to host sims and rent them out rather than just being a hub ?
[2018/06/23 11:35] albertlr Landar: Welll some region owners do that.
[2018/06/23 11:36] albertlr Landar: But OSgrid itself is a non-profit, so we are unable to do that.
[2018/06/23 11:36] DJ Higher is Online
[2018/06/23 11:36] albertlr Landar: All our homestead regions, which are only a few are free to use on a first come first serve basis.
[2018/06/23 11:36] Dee King: i was talking about osgrid itself, just to pay for running costs of the organisation
[2018/06/23 11:37] albertlr Landar: Well like any non-profit we are restricted by what we can do by the IRS in the US.
[2018/06/23 11:37] albertlr Landar: We can't sell things, but we can accept donations.
[2018/06/23 11:37] Dee King: oh thats America the land of the free lol
[2018/06/23 11:37] albertlr Landar: yea
[2018/06/23 11:38] Dee King: i didn't know that
[2018/06/23 11:38] Dee King: see told you it was basic
[2018/06/23 11:38] albertlr Landar: And what is offered here on OSgrid is free.
[2018/06/23 11:38] albertlr Landar: Thats ok, a lot of people don't fully understand the concept of open source.
[2018/06/23 11:39] albertlr Landar: If you go to Wright plaza, you will find that all the items there are free to take.
[2018/06/23 11:39] Wizard Atazoth: I wonder. How the girl scouts sales cookies as non-profit?
[2018/06/23 11:39] albertlr Landar: They operate that more as a separate operation.
[2018/06/23 11:39] Wizard Atazoth: ah
[2018/06/23 11:39] DJ Higher is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:40] albertlr Landar: In fact the Girl Scouts National headquarters is here in Savannah, GA where I was born and live
[2018/06/23 11:40] Dee King: Girl scout cookies inc ive heard of that and im in Bulgaria
[2018/06/23 11:40] DJ Higher is Online
[2018/06/23 11:40] Dee King: :-)
[2018/06/23 11:40] Wizard Atazoth: makes sense then
[2018/06/23 11:41] albertlr Landar: The girl scout organization itself does not sell the cookines, its each individual girl scrout that does the selling.
[2018/06/23 11:41] George Equus: Must be very tasty cookies to get that kind of reputation :)
[2018/06/23 11:41] Dee King: id buy them ;-)
[2018/06/23 11:41] albertlr Landar: yea, they have great cookies, just can't eat them anymore myself as I a type 2 diabetic.
[2018/06/23 11:41] Wizard Atazoth: it would be like if I charged people rent for a sim I hosted, then donated the money to osgrid I guess.
[2018/06/23 11:41] DJ Higher is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:42] albertlr Landar: So have to avoid them now.
[2018/06/23 11:42] Dee King: as an emergency you can ;-0
[2018/06/23 11:42] albertlr Landar: Well Wizard you could do that, it would be great.
[2018/06/23 11:42] Dee King: maybe you can sell os grid cookies lol
[2018/06/23 11:42] Wizard Atazoth: lol
[2018/06/23 11:42] DJ Higher is Online
[2018/06/23 11:42] albertlr Landar: Well we do have some virtual donuts and cookies around here some where.
[2018/06/23 11:43] albertlr Landar: They never seem to go stale here either.
[2018/06/23 11:43] Dee King: giggles
[2018/06/23 11:43] albertlr Landar: very good preservative in them.
[2018/06/23 11:43] George Equus: Some very stale ones in the Hall behind us :)
[2018/06/23 11:43] albertlr Landar: greetings

[2018/06/23 11:47] Mirror Amorasi is Offline
[2018/06/23 11:48] Dee King: its not doing it here
[2018/06/23 11:48] Wizard Atazoth: Maybe lag. I see you only typing once.
[2018/06/23 11:48] Jean-Phillipe Savant: right maybe a new razor is in my Christmas list
[2018/06/23 11:49] Jean-Phillipe Savant: all kidding aside.. Mesh has been my major problem on my regions.. Some show and some don't..
[2018/06/23 11:49] albertlr Landar: if you have a older slower computer that can affect the experience of things in opensim.
[2018/06/23 11:50] albertlr Landar: Sounds like a texture problem.
[2018/06/23 11:50] Jean-Phillipe Savant: I have done graphic card up grade and memory cards.
[2018/06/23 11:50] albertlr Landar: If those are meshes thart were made on OSgrid, they should show up.
[2018/06/23 11:50] Jean-Phillipe Savant: assets On the textures?
[2018/06/23 11:50] albertlr Landar: yes.
[2018/06/23 11:51] Wizard Atazoth: Some mesh here is poorly made
[2018/06/23 11:51] albertlr Landar: so depends on the mesh object a lot of times.
[2018/06/23 11:51] Jean-Phillipe Savant: yyes, I have got most of mine online at
[2018/06/23 11:52] albertlr Landar: you will have more success with prim objects I am afraid.
[2018/06/23 11:52] Jean-Phillipe Savant: working with blender to bring in items also. Like I said just learning. I'm a chef in real life
[2018/06/23 11:53] albertlr Landar: well like good food it takes time and patience to get the end results to be successful unfortunately.
[2018/06/23 11:54] Wizard Atazoth: yup
[2018/06/23 11:54] Dee King: are you using firestorm ?
[2018/06/23 11:54] stiofain mactomais: and a blender is useful to both
[2018/06/23 11:54] albertlr Landar: thats a good observation.
[2018/06/23 11:55] Jean-Phillipe Savant: right on, I just read much and try working it out. I'm looking for scripts for some of my doors and finding that not that easy.. rotating and cutting etc..
[2018/06/23 11:55] Dee King: if so they have a mesh bug in the latest version some objects don't show in osgrid
[2018/06/23 11:55] Jean-Phillipe Savant: yes it's private one
[2018/06/23 11:56] albertlr Landar: Try Wright Plaza for lots of free things and scripts
[2018/06/23 11:56] Jean-Phillipe Savant: firestorm pro is the version
[2018/06/23 11:56] Dee King: copybot viewer
[2018/06/23 11:56] albertlr Landar: may want to try Singularity to view mesh things.
[2018/06/23 11:56] Jean-Phillipe Savant: Not sure on that
[2018/06/23 11:57] stiofain mactomais: is a good script resource
