THE STUPIDITY OF LINDEN LAB

Congratulations Ebbe, you've managed to wreck the official SL forums, replace it with NADA and even your Sansar's nowhere near...oh wait, sitcom starting on TV

LINDEN LAB: Huh huh, we gonna screw you residents. Screw you! Huh huh, destroyin SL for fun n profit since 2010!

FORUMWORM: Oh no, they dont mean that, mammy?
MRS WORM: No no hush now chile, those Lindens awful good fellas t'you n me! That Ebbe, he a mighty fine fella! He wont do that to us, no chile, he be lookin out for us!
FORUMWORM: Mammy our sim be down 3 days...Marketplace took mah last 30L! Nobody picking up the phone!
MRS WORM: Dont you be calling support now chile, you wicked lil tyke, that Ebbe he be repping us poor residents.
LINDEN LAB: All inventory will be wiped.
MRS WORM: Ebbe dont mean that, he mean we be gettin a spring clean! Ebbe a GOOD man, chile!

Meanwhile, two steps away from the largactyl:
Under new CEO Ebbe Altberg, Linden Lab is building a VR world which goes by the name of Sansar. Whereas High Fidelity is radically open, not only in its code but also in its player, Sansar is closed-source, built for stand-alone experiences.

Open vs closed. Creation vs control. This is how the future of VR turns on a decade-old debate about a world called Second Life.


Beavis Ebbe:VR is so cool, dude, I can't get enough of it. Gimme MORE! And them others too!

Butthead Gavin: Huh? Then wha'bout immersionism, dude, doncha like to puke on it?

Beavis Ebbe: Wha? I said immersionism Butthead. Your OR's got way too many batteries, dude. Take it off and I'll puke on it, made in all them sweaty haunts in Chinatown.

Butthead Gavin: Beer and Pizza, Beavis. Beer and Pizza.

Beavis Ebbe: Now I really wanna puke - gimme that OR!

Butthead Gavin: No, dude! Beer and Pizza. Immersionism and meshlysquiggles. Ya can't have one widout the udder, and the more beer ya sozzle the more pizza ya donk. Geddit, dude?

Beavis Ebbe: Uh, how 'bout Beer and OR, then, Butthead?

Butthead Gavin: Only if ya drink the beer and puke up the OR, dude.

I got as far as FORUMWORM and glazed over.

In spite of that, I can condense the post into a single word: WARGARRBLE.

A rare and fascinating case of an OP that would be better in Vietnamese with pictures of awnings.

Where is tranhvx1032 when we need him?

Yanno, when most of humanity hates something so much, they usually just stop using it and move on with their lives.

NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR US SECOND LIFE RESIDENTS!

if I may, I might be able to explain the OP's point of view:

the first part is the complain: "Congratulations Ebbe, you've managed to wreck the official SL forums, replace it with NADA and even your Sansar's nowhere near.."

this means that s/he is complaining that the official Second Life forums are not working, and Sansar is not publicly available either, which at this moment that seems to be a problem.

"oh wait, sitcom starting on TV" we are now are going to see the complain with a little bit of humor in a style of the MTV TV show "Beavis and Butthead", if you haven't see it, there are some examples of it in Youtube, it's about two guys who are not very brilliant:

the Forumworm and Mrs Worm are typical of what Beavis and butthead would watch on their TV, the TV program starts with an announcement of Linden Lab that they want to destroy Second Life and damage the residents, in the conversation between the worms, who just listen the announcement, Forumworm understands the message while Mrs Worm deny it, claiming that Linden Lab intentions would never be like that.

after the worms scene ends, we are moved to the next scene where there is supposedly Ebbe and Gavin talking about the future of virtual reality in a very simple way, presented as the main characters of the show Beavis (Ebbe) and Butthead (Gavin), they are presented as those characters because the OP wants to present them as not so brilliant.

the following dialog between them doesn't have to be very smart, in accordance to the MTV show characters, and in accordance with how the OP wants to present Ebbe and Gavin.

in summary: the OP thinks that Ebbe and Gavin are not very brilliant based on the result that the Official Second Life forums are not usable at this moment and neither is Sansar.

Yep, those Alt Avatars made many moons ago always come in handy at some point.

When the better-known avatar gets banned or laughed at or groaned at too much, maybe.

So yeah, Lithium is breathtakingly expensive, like $8-1000/month. The biggest mystery is that they went with in th the first place. This migration, as messy and embarrassing as it is probably is for somebody at LL, is still going to save them a lot of money. Anything that drives down the cost of providing SL is ultimately good for us.

Just to alleviate my ignorance of forum software pricing, could you put "$8 – 1000" into a discernible format that visibly supports your assertion that it is "breathtakingly expensive".

I don't doubt your meaning, but $8 per month really doesn't strike me as anything other than breathtakingly inexpensive for a massive corporate software leasing deal.

Or am I, in my ignorance, missing the sarcasm?

That's 800 to 1000 per month, not $8.00 to $12.00

(try to put up with typos, am dragging and will be for a while.)
