A very immature griefer named Ol' Fitzcarraldo just crashed the entire Second Life grid by unleashing self-replicating, physics-enabled balls. I saw Bodega was going down (didn't know why or that it was grid-wide) and logged off. The forum had 200 then jumped to more than 500 people online sharing information.
What an idiot.
This fellow has been causing trouble - I answered a call recently in Elven Glen, where he and two friends were up to no good and refused to leave. After about 15 of us showed up they decided to leave.
This will result in perma-banning, but I hope that keeps him out. This is bad enough, but made worse by it being a Sunday, and the day before a point release. Floridians are saying, "Well, I guess I won't get back in until after Wilma."
Ol' Fitzcarraldo - do yourself a favor and grow up.
Update: the forums now have 1040 people online - more than during the winter outage which was previously the record-holder at 800.
"as an update...
Colliquial reports seems to indicate that the asset server is hosed.
The perpetrator has been permabanned.
Cue the w-hat apologists.
Seriously, I've defended you guys a lot, but get your shit together. Stop breaking SL with your newbie pawns."
