The statistic that really matters: desolation!

I questioned Hypergrid Business' measure of landmass as a means for how good a grid is. So I looked at their October's "most active" grids stats from HypergridBusiness, and worked out some spreadsheet magic. The difference is, that I look at the number of actual logged in users (concurrency) in relation to the number of regions the grid has (single size equivalents). And this gives a much more usable metric as shown on the graph.

For OsGrid for instance, this means for every user that is logged in, there exist 201 regions on the grid; 200 without people, and 1 with a user.

If we want to bump into a another live person on Wolf Territories, we have to travel through 2611 regions!

It is no surprise the microgrids do well here. They make the grid no larger than is reasonable for the grid's concurrency.

Best in this graph is of course Second Life, with 0.6 regions per logged in user. That means every region in SL, has on average about 2 users in it.

Data file available at (you can repeat the test yourself)

NB. data measured at 19:30 UTC, usually when most OpenSimmers are online
NB2. the concurrency reported by Alternate Metaverse is most likely incorrect/fraudulent; correcting this to 60 (like when there's an event/party) yields a desolation of 167 regions per logged in user.

Inside Veri's Memorial at OSFest

One of my parcels at OSFest is ready to go. This one promotes my Luxor region on Wolf Territories grid. The small structure in the center is a memorial to Veri McMaster and there's a song playing there titled 'Moments' by Sid Acharya - it is not a stream so just make sure your sounds are turned up and after about a minute you will hear it playing.

Here's the hop: hop:// HG Address is Just look for the Egyptian structures.
Voice in Opensim is a vexed question, and whilst most of us don't use it for a whole host of reasons it is a very useful thing to have. But, so long as there has been a 'free' alternative, most have been happy to use Vivox. For most people Vivox is probably fine, but for some there is one very big downside to using this service: it eavesdrops.

Some years ago I was working on an Opensim based solution for remote meetings, a place where we could virtually meet. Probably the most important criteria was security and privacy, so obviously Vivox, with its policy of eavesdropping was a non-starter. I had become aware of the Whisper project, but that only worked with Opensim up to 0.7.6, and whilst the module was then still available, it isn't now. Also, the Whisper project itself was abandonware. In 2014, Zetamex announced a bounty for anyone finishing the work on the Mumble-Whisper voice module, and started a crowdfunder, which predictably, this being Opensim, raised the derisory sum of $62 from four backers...

Even at the time, it didn't look as if the bounty would be claimed, as Vivox was still a viable option, so of course that's what people went for rather than for an independent voice solution for Opensim. I did try to contact the person behind the project at the time, as I would have liked to have supported the project, but they did not get back to me. The project I was working on didn't progress, but more because of the high entry threshold of Opensim/Second Life. I still have the OARs I made for the project however.

The EchoVoice project announced in late 2021 offered some promise even though the project was looking for $60k in initial funding. A cynic might think that raising a sum like that in Opensim is just pie in the sky, and so it proved. Thus far the project has raised $775 of the needed $60,000. Hypergrid Business described the project as suffering from 'delayed funding'.

And now that Vivox seem to be about to follow through on their decision to close off access to Vivox for most users of Opensim there is now a clamouring. The writing has been on the wall for a very long time, and there have been alternative voice projects launched from within the Opensim community that have been ignored.

At the end of the day we need to take responsibility for our own project. The Opensim project needs lots of things. Opensim needs its own viewer project with all the SL only gunk removing, and arguably a more formally organised Opensim fork project is needed to properly progress the project. But I doubt that any of this will happen because no one will cough up any cash. I know there are some users of Opensim who are extremely cash-strapped, but I reckon that most could afford the odd pound/dollar every once in a while to support projects in Opensim. Even in my most financially straightened times I could always find the odd couple of quid for causes that are important to me. Now that I'm somewhat more financially secure, I can afford to indulge more, but like most, I understandably want to be sure that any project I contribute cash to has a better than evens chance of reaching its goal.

There is only one way we will get the things we want in Opensim, such as a voice module, and that is through paying for them!

It's that time of the year again when OSFest is nearly ready to open the doors of a new grid to exhibitors, merchants, and sponsors to start placing their creations before the official opening on September 15th. I know I've been working on my new exhibit since mid July.

OSFest (OpensimFest) is a big event with tons of exhibits from multiple grids, including individual exhibitors, merchants, and artists, as well as educators and grid owners. Each year they create a grid just for the festival with multiple regions and tons of performers that lasts 2 weeks. At the end they have a large celebration just before the entire grid is taken down until the next year.

If you wish to participate as an exhibitor, performer, or merchant, please go here to register for a parcel: then click Register on the top menu line. Once the grid opens you'll receive a parcel number by email.

OSFest sponsors are those who support the grid monetarily to help offset the server and technical costs of running a short-term grid. Their support ensures the grid is free to everyone.

UPDATE: Thank you Dee.Ferry for providing me with the Blueberry - Frappe - Bodysuits fat-pack! The vendor now includes the black and the white versions of the bodysuit, as well as the gold.

Be both smart and sexy in this outfit. I'll supply the beautiful outfit and you supply the brains. I mean, I don't include brains with the outfits! That would only attract decidedly not sexy zombie shoppers.

oh HELLO: A Zombie Free Zone

I think the "Blueberry - Frappe - Bodysuits Full - Athena Gold" is part of a fat-pack. If you have it, kindly sent it to me, or tell me where to get it. Thanks!
My passion is building large architectural structures and regions for commercial, spiritual, and entertainment purposes, and doing them with highly detailed surfaces and textures. While I am not primarily in the business of making smaller items, in the process of making a venue I inevitably end up adding furniture, lighting, and accessories that match the style. A lot of these I make myself, but some, like this beautiful Art Deco Lamp, which will be part of my new OSFest build, I source from 3D modeling sites.

The first photo is of an original lamp from the 1920s, currently available on Etsy for about $300 usd. The second is the 3D model by Katmit developed for 3D printers. I purchased it on Renderhub for $12 and it came with an Extended Use license. After a lot of work with faces and UV maps I was finally able to get Firestorm to let my version upload, which is the last pic. I was meh about the plain globe, so I replaced that with something more interesting and added my light script. This little project took a lot more time and effort than I planned for, but I'll spend many happy moments sitting at the bar just looking at this lovely piece of art that began life a hundred years ago.

You will be able to see my full Art Deco venue at OSFest this September on the sponsor region.

To our residents and visitors

Last week ILY went offline due to a power supply failure that took out the motherboard and corrupted the main database of our server. We have now replaced the server and have got some of the grid back up and running from a back up. ILY 1 is now running and all those who had parcels on that region will have them replaced over the next few days.

We have replaced our broken server with one with a slightly higher spec, however the server had not faulted - it was zapped by high volts when the UPS failed during an Electricity Network High Voltage Fault in Manchester.

Sadly we have not been able to recover the database though we are continuing to try and repair it. That means we cannot recover the individual inventories of our residents and our residents will need to make new avatars.

Going forward our backups will be done to The Cloud instead of too our 2nd Network Server - this has added extra cost and increased security to the grid.

All those who have bought land from us will get equivalent sized parcels back and will get 6 months free rent as compensation.

We will need to rebuild the islands on ILY2. Sadly it is unlikely we will be able to rebuild ILY3 so we will not be replace the holiday homes that some of you had. We will in time build a new holiday home region.

It may be a couple of weeks before normal service is restored but we WILL be back and we hope you will stay with us.

Love Debz, Bobbi and all at I Love You i had that 1 year ago very sad i lost all but i had all oars and iars in a save harddisk at home. Now i have a cloud external and my home hard disk as second save! Good luck for a restart. 4 months ago

Luxor is my home and a place of meditation and mystery for spiritual pilgrims. The region rewards those who are patient, still, and listening, for there are quiet songs that will play at various locations if you stand and wait. Shared environment and higher graphics will complete your experience in this place of Peace. I am here often so please say Hi if you see me

Nothing is currently for sale here but eventually I'll open a little shop of antiquities.
