        2017 OSHG: Physics with ubODE. How does it do vehicles?

        Physics with ubODE in virtual worlds.   
        How does it do vehicles?
        A new physics engine, ubODE, has been introduced in the upcoming version of OpenSimulator (OS0.9.X).  Since some grids  are running OS0.9.x, it is possible to get video demonstrations of vehicle performance under ubODE.  Here are 3, showing that vehicle performance can be quite good.

          2017 HELP: TECH: Avatar Psoriasis, a search for the cause or at least some cures

          Avatar Psoriasis, a search for the cause 
          or at least some risk factors
          Updated 6/14/2017
          My avatar appearance got corrupted recently.  Two other people have had the same problem.  I found some fixes, short of a clean reinstall of Firestorm 64, and, with only 3 cases, I begin to speculate about risk factors.  
          My avatar with a skin disease


          SMS (160) Short Poetry Workshop - Tue 6/13, 7pm SLT

          This week the Short Poetry Workshop presents SMS-Poetry or 160 Poetry. If you’ve ever sent an SMS text message to someone here’s your chance to write some free style poetry, but limited to up to 160 characters - anything that would fit in an SMS message . U don’t need ur cell fones, just join us to learn, rite & share ur SMS poms. We’ll be w8ing 4 U @ E. Cookie 
          Update: Fred B. suggested that I rebake textures, but that does not fix it.  The only cure I know is to relog in Firestorm 32 bit and change avatars.  It is probably a bug introduced with the code that makes FS adjust to HD screens.

          2017 PEOPLE: HG Safari celebrates 3rd anniversary with a dance

          HG Safari celebrates 3rd anniversary with a dance
          What are virtual worlds?  Mostly people having fun together.   Maybe dancing together.   Lots of frivolous stuff.   Not what we learned in school.  Maybe what we learned after school.  Now do you see why we like to come to virtual worlds?
          Can you find the velociraptor?
          Click image to enlarge

          • I think it beats dancing with wolves.  
          • These days, velociraptors are hard to find.  
          • Except in virtual worlds.
