    I don’t appreciate having grafitti put on my building without even asking permission.  Babbage is supposed to be RP optional.  I opt not to partake in this particular rp.  I can’t log in right now.  A couple of friends are searching Babbage to find out where I am, so hopefully, Tenk can restart the sim and get me out later.  But, when I do get in world – I’m going to return the decoration and ban the owner from my parcel.  If it happens again, I’m going to ask Tenk to treat it as a formal grief complaint.

    It was put on you property with out your permission? Not cool. You are correct New Babbage is RP optional.

  3. Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox September 6, 2010

    Yup.  Like I said, I can’t get in world right now because SL thinks I am already logged in for some stupid reason.  But, if the person had sent me a request, it would be in my in-box with the 20,000 IMs asking if I fell asleep at my computer.

    I sent a ticket to the Lindens hours ago, but since this is a holiday…..  Tenk tried restarting Babbage square.  I tried logging Zaida in on a different computer to see if that would bump her.  Jimmy recommended completely uninstalling Emerald.  So, I did that and tried to log in with Imprudence.  Didn’t work.  I’m wondering if completely uninstalling SL from my computer might do it.   Mara and Tsula both say their radars show me as being in the church, but they don’t actually see me.

    Tank you Mr. Tenk for removing the graffiti. 

    And dat was weird.  Like I said – Mara and Tsula both said that they showed me on their radars in the Church of the Holy Innocents.  But, they didn’t see me when they went there.  Then, all of a sudden I was there, and then finally got logged out.

  5. Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox September 6, 2010

    Nope.  Still can’t get in.  :-/

      You’re not showing on my viewer radar or the Mystitool now. Hopefully it’s been resolved.

      If you’re still stuck try changing the login location in preferences before you login. That sometimes helps ‘kick’ the server into doing something.

      SL did have a spat of flakiness yesterday. It managed to part me and my submarine in a badly flubbed border crossing. I never did find it and had to go and modify the original again. Later I tp’d across Babbage and ended up somewhere in orbit.

      I do love forrest gump tp systems. ‘You never know where you’ll go’ :-P

      Eh, it’s what I get for driving a non-backed up prototype, I suppose.

  6. Mara Razor Mara Razor September 6, 2010

    Yeah that’s been freaky.  Went Zaida hunting to find out where she logged from.  Both my radar and Tsula’s radar showed her in the Church of the Holy Innocents.  But, she wasn’t there.  Then, every so often she would appear then disappear.  She seems to finally be logged out now.  But, she’s gone to work.  :-/

    sounds like some wierd bug, like the ghosting that kept happening to people logging off months back, they’d logg and their avi would still be standing there, meanwhile the server would think they were still logged on and not let them come back in

  8. Mr Underby Mr Underby September 6, 2010

    I’ve had a few ghosts like that at the Bucket lately.

  9. Victor1st Mornington Victor1st Mornington September 6, 2010

    Log in server ghost.  I get that a lot on the dr who sim cause tgeres usually about 20 to 30 people in it during peak times.

    The trick with the log in server loop is when the avatar appears infront of the sim owner, count down the seconds until it vanishes and reappears, then time a sim restart for when the avatar has appeared…or alternativley using emerald do a short warning countdown to a restart (60 seconds) the sim goes down and the avatar login loop doesnt have a sim to loop in :)

  10. Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox September 6, 2010

    I still can’t get in at all.  I completely uninstalled all viewers of SL from my computer.  Did a disk cleanup.  Reinstalled.  Nothing.  Somehow Tsula was briefly able to log in as me and moved me over to Steelhead thinking maybe the problem was Babbage Square since I’ve had problems there before.  Now, both Tsu and Mara say they don’t see me as logged in on their friends list.  Yet, I cannot log in.

    I’m starting to think I’m going to have to create an alt and recreate Zaida from the ground up.  But, the thought of losing all I have in my inventory just about kills me.

    • Blackberry Harvey Blackberry Harvey September 6, 2010

      I’ve had that problem before.  It’s not your viewer.  It’s whatever login server your account is on.  Put in a ticket with Linden Labs and they’ll reset it.

  11. Mara Razor Mara Razor September 6, 2010

    Well, I’m showing you online again, but hell if I know where you are now because you’re not in Steelhead.

    I know there’s this big “Religion is bad” rp playing out in Babbage right now.  I don’t much care for it.  But, in any event, the church wasn’t really built for RP.  I built the original building to look like the church that was attached to the Catholic school I went to as a child.  Unlike a lot of people, I have positive memories of being in Catholic school.  The church is my happy place.  If you want to vandalize the convent (the house next to the church) or Zaidaville – knock yourselves out.  Don’t vandalize the church.

    • LoPxie Artful LoPxie Artful September 7, 2010

      *hugs zaida*

      well… i suppose the church of the builder isn’t really about religion being bad, but it is meant to be a metaphor for “science as a religion”… or rationality, whatevs…  it is all terribly ironic and satirical, i am sure

      i don’t like it when rp drama becomes rl grief for anyone, especially my friends… it is all supposed to be fun, not horrible and traumatic

      so yeah, anyway…  leave zaida’s church alone!

    • Mr Underby Mr Underby September 7, 2010

      Lo is right, the RP is not that religion is bad.  I’m saddened if it came across that way.  The RP is meant to be specifically “Reason vs Occult”, and religion has nothing to do with it, apart from the Church of the Builder being one of the most visual and vocal supporters of reason in New Babbage.

      Why anyone would equate your cathedral with that is beyond me, and why they would choose to vandalize the church without asking permission first is even more beyond me.  It shoudln’t be hard for Mr Tenk to find out who the culprit was.  Bad form.

    • Gabriell Anatra Gabriell Anatra September 7, 2010

      Actually the impression that I got from this RP has mostly improved my opinion of the church, especially in contrast to this Loosestrife business. The church might seem dogmatic at times but look at what they have to deal with. In their situation I might make them look diplomatic in comparison.

      Agreed about the mark though. You church didn’t even have a presence in the RP to begin with, let alone a pro or con position.

  13. Jimmy Branagh Jimmy Branagh September 7, 2010

    With all the “cults” recently dropped into Babbage, I see it all as becoming analagous to the constant bickering between various beliefs in RL, as well as the religion vs. science conflict.

    We need to remember that this is not real (the HELL you say! :) ), and care must be taken not to take things too seriously.  On the other hand, actual representations of extant religions that are not involved in particular RP scenarios should be respected.

    Of course, ask permission before scribbling on someone else’s build, for ANY reason.  That’s just common courtesy.

    (There now, wasn’t thet simple?  Oy will now return ta bein’ me normal se’f!  Thenks faw awl yaw attenshin!)
