Welcome Sport Fans!

Two down in the ninth, two on, and the counts 3 & 2.

As we all know, this has a happy ending where the Hero at the plate smacks a game winning double.

Unfortunately for Residents of Second Life, this is just a fairy tale when it comes to installing Major Release 1.23.

Yesterday it was announced that 1.23 was going to be installed and 1/10th of the SIMs will get the first rolling restarts and then they would watch and see if other problems exist.

Within minutes, it was quite easy to see that Linden Lab was going to strike out and the Hero, becomes a bum.

This is the FIFTH time that Linden Lab has attempted to place the infamous version 1.23.3 onto the servers, only to have it fail all 5 times. I'm pretty certain Linden Lab is taking the lead as the WORST developer in Gaming History. This certainly will give Atari's production of E.T. a run for it's money as WORSE game ever.

It seems our friends at Linden Lab is having POST-CORY issues with this Release, and now it's been delayed again, giving us all ANOTHER attempt on Monday.

Bets? 0 and 5 so far, will they continue their proud tradition? Only time will tell!

As Harry Chapin wrote, "Haven't we played this scence before?"

Linden Lab announced this past Monday that they would be start rolling-restart the SIMs to get 1.23 into production.

Apparently the start was a bit late on the start time, and, once people began noticing MAJOR BUGS in the release, our friends of course asked the users to give them REPRO steps and file it in JIRA. This is Linden Lab idea of the community helping Linden Lab. I just wonder why Linden Lab expects people to come to their aid. By their own admittance, they have chosen to bypass a number of bugs to stay on the bleeding edge. I mean if Linden Lab wants to slash its own wrist, why should I really care?

I've asked TWO Linden Employee's to explain this latest fiasco, Prospero, who was apparently in charge of this weeks mess and Joshus Linden, who apparently is Prospero's talking stick.

This makes the THIRD time for Linden Lab to try and install a major release, and have failed considerable. I would LOVE to hear Uncle Philip to explain how this is a good thing, and not a bad thing; or is he too busy pulling strings of a certain new CEO?

IF the Linden's in question dare to answer and be truthful and blunt with the community, I'll report it here, but if I were you I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

The Logs are Corrupted?

This just in. Somehow the LOGS there at our friends business are getting "CORRUPTED". Apparently this happens especially when LINDEN LAB EMPLOYEE'S are caught doing something wrong.

I would LOVE to hear Uncle Philip, Aunty Robin, or maybe our NEW CEO M explain this interesting fact.

If you would like to know how I know, I suggest you read the blog about a certain Linden being pissy with a Resident and apparently not getting into any trouble about. Blue Linden said, "the logs are corrupted", when approaching our Resident that was upset by BUB LINDEN telling him/her to "BUGGER OFF".

I would like to be assured by our friends there at Linden Lab that this corruption problem won't happen ANYMORE when it comes to showing just how shabbily their Employee's are treating their Residents!
