Yesterday Lucia called to give me, she said, my update on the real world. She's been interested in bats lately, and has been on some bat-walks, the last to a batty area on Woodard Bay. There happened along two bat experts, one an amateur bat fanatic from town, the other a Seattle bat expert who was described to me as looking like Wallace Shawn, In other words, I said, he looked like a bat in human form. "Exactly," said Loosh, "I had that thought at the time." She said there was alpha bat expert posturing as they vied to display deep bat-knowledge.
The log-a-thon stress test was this evening, and I spent it at the Lily Pad listening to live singer Frogg Marlowe. Enjah got home in time to log in for a time. The Lindens fell short of their 5000 log-ins goal, but said they would hold more log-a-thons, and had been pleased by the way the grid handled the number who did log in. It was unfortunate that some people were unhappy about the day and time of the event - I think Linden Lab probably was trying to have a stress test on a day that would have a lot of people available to log in, but not a day/time that would wreck everyone's weekend if something unforseen had happened. Unfortunately that put it in the middle of a work day for Aus/NZ and the creepy early Monday morning hours for the UK and Europe. I always get the feeling the Lindens are just damned no matter what they try. I am sure the next log-a-thon will be (and rightfully) geared to another time zone.
Sailed from Riverwalk in Ganymede to Cowell then back home to Bodega.
I was thinking about the upside down room and then read it was back!
LL recently hired one of the original visionaries from There - an amazing artificial intelligence expert who was responsible for the dogs among many things. His website has a few incredible little programs like this bird:
It saunters around and you can put seed out by clicking your mouse button. It is amazing.
