Grid Attack And Restore - Fire And Ice Grid - The Full story

The Fire And Ice Grid have been subjected to a serious attack on our servers.

All data is securely backed up on disconnected media and is in the process of being restored.

Our apologies for the interruption in the normal service.

The main website is now back up, the rest of the grid will be back up as soon as the data transfer from the backup server is completed.

So far the website, blog forum and wiki are restored, regular updates will be added to our discord channel.
The Fire And Ice grid has implemented restart warnings when simulators (groups of sims) are shut down. Every minute, during the ten mins before a restart, residents on affected sims will get a popup.

How many times has the #Opensim community found out too late that their grid has no #Backup or can't deploy them? Events like this should never be; unfortunately, the opposite has been exact. See the blog for our methods.

This will be a general question and answers session on all things content creation. I have been in virtual worlds since 2004 and done many Youtube tutorials. Teaching has been one of the true loves in opensim. With current world events, I have the time to do it once more. Brings your questions and I will endeavour to help you with them. The session will be conducted both in voice chat and via text. I look forward to seeing and helping people.

Custom Map Tiles now available on the Fire And Ice Grid.

Following our upgrade to 0.911 last week the Fire And Ice grid has now returned to using separate Robust instances.

This setup is a little more complicated, hence my decision to go with the simples setup for the upgrade. Multiple robust instances bring performance improvements in a number of situations.

We currently separate the grid user service, asset service and inventory service (the ones suggested on the opensim website). If anyone has experience of further gains for separating others I am interested in talking.
The Fire And Ice Grid are pleased to announce we have completed our opensim version upgrade. The opensim version upgrade to 0.911 forms part of our ongoing commitment to keep up with opensimulator developments.

This weekend I am planning on upgrading to 0s0.911 from 0.910 anyone know of any gotchas?

Free Land for a club! - A full region is up for grabs on a first come first served basis for an individual or group that wishes to run a club. The only stipulation is that there must be regular events and promotions happening.

A lovely beach setting featuring artwork by one of my favourite 3d artists in opensim. A pleasure to spend a little time looking around.
