2014

firewworksWell I didn’t achieve that much in 2014 feel it was a bit of a nothing year. Loved my time with Storm in Second Life. Bought a new computer system , a tablet and a smart phone so technology is up to date. Feel I’m getting a bit stale as to hosting , need to up my game. Sigh. However I did stop smoking (YAY) and joined the gym. ¬†New years resolution? Be more energetic. Have a cold at the moment and feel awful.

Hope you all have a super New Year ūüôā

Animated Gifs – Micons

New WordPress is good. 4.1 .

dancegifI was reminded of Hyperland :¬†Hyperland is a 50-minute long documentary film about hypertext and surrounding technologies. It was written by Douglas Adams and produced and directed by Max Whitby for BBC Two in 1990. You can find it on YouTube and Vimeo. 1990 before the web please note. Some great interviews ¬†and history of The Internet. great to hear Ted Nelson the inventor of hypertext in the 1960s. One important element was the prediction of Micons or moving icons I like movie icons too . Didn’t happen. Not sure why but ¬†I like them. Leave a comment after visiting Micons.org¬†and watching the movie, there is a relevant clip of the movie on the micons site, if you so wish.

Help

I use the Firestorm viewer for Second Life and it is very good. I have been using it for over a year and just upgraded to the latest release.¬† Yesterday had what I thought was a disaster. I couldn’t see mesh the 3D modelling of objects. There were just gaps where clothes would be. I thought my graphics card had broken, and it had. I had just updated the drivers. However I didn’t know this and I asked friends what to do. They took me through various settings nothing worked. Then it was suggested I ask the FS Support group in chat. I joined the group and typed my problem into chat. Almost immediately the answer came that I had to roll back my drivers to an earlier release. It was the new AMD drivers that were doing it. So I did a system restore. Everything went back to 4th December. And everything worked.

So my Firestorm does not support certain builds of AMD drivers. I went back to release 13, 14 seems to have problems in its various forms. Finding this out took a matter of seconds. What a great resource to have that Chat. Excellent stuff. I watched it yesterday and picked up some tips. It seems no problem is too small to help, from fiddling with a graphics setting to a complete install. Well done Firestorm. They also have a wiki and JIRA and forums. http://firestormviewer.org
