With blood and sweat, and duct tape!

Filed under: Second Life Shit! — Hugsie @ 5:52 pm

That’s what’s holding the Second Life service up right now.  I’m starting to think that the concept of updating the service with OUT taking down the entire service offline just isn’t working.  All this week they have been trying to update the server side of everything (namely asset database servers, where all your stuff lives) and they keep running into problems.

You can read a nice play-by-play in the Linden Blog. The people who comment on  it sound like broken records.  Always someone bitching about how he hasn’t been able to login for 4 hours.  Another complaining about lag as if it didn’t exist before the beginning of the internet time. Pages of user complaining about crashing or getting kicked offline when they teleport, which I got numerous times my self.

The funny thing is the Lindens don’t read those comments.  Hell I don’t read all of those long winded comments, and they expect the Lindens to read each one, and do something about it?  It’s not even an official venue to contact the Lindens about problems of any kind.

Another odd thing I’m finding posted in the comments are links to other blogs, and I’m not sure exactly how these are getting posted on there.  The more amusing one is “Second Life Sucks” and they started a weekly wrap-up of a choice collection of user comments from the Linden Blog of user complaints.



  1. When writing a post on your WordPress blog, go to the “Trackbacks” section, below the text area and send a trackback to the other post’s trackback address. For example, the latest “Tip of the Week #19” post’s trackback address is

    That’s how you get the link to your blog to show up in the comments. Almost all blogging software has this, and most blogs let you send trackbacks to them. You don’t get any “Google Juice” from them, since links in comments are normally rel=”nofollow”, but when something you’re saying has to do with something somebody else wrote, it’s a good way to join the conversation without actually leaving a comment.
