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.
