Q&A Video and transcript

now available at the following link thanks to Pantera and Inara.


It is that time again! We’ll be hosting our (second Saturday of every month) Q&A this Saturday April 12th at 4pm SLT. We will have some announcements as well as field your questions and complaints. As always, the meeting will be recorded on video and later transcribed for those who could not attend. If you have questions but are unable to attend feel free to post them as a comment on this blog post and they will be answered during the Q&A.

Topics include but not limited to…

  • Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability bug and how it effects you
  • Revisiting why we block old viewer versions and how.
  • Lets talk a bit about Firestorm DUI
  • Upcoming release! Really? Another one already! Maybe!
  • Whatever else comes up.

Region fills up fast so come early!

  • DUI could also be confused as Driving Under the Influence. *arches eye brow* I was confused for a while what DUI meant till someone pointed it out the correct terminology.

  • yes, DGUI (Dynamic Graphical User Interface) would have been a less ambiguous (but admittedly less catchy) term.
    Of course combined with the april fool element, the name as chosen is appropriate 🙂

  • Yeah, but if it wasn’t DUI, the video wouldn’t have made sense. LOL

  • I was wondering if DUI was linked with some multiplay-screen system where we can have the classic viewer on one screen for sailing for instance, while we have the map or/and minimap on the other screen. Just a dream lol

  • Any chance you could include an option to make the font type bigger for the inventory? Tough for an old pair of eyes like mine to see it sometime.

    i never had this problem befor only with the newest firestorm :3(sorry for bad english) dunno what to do to fix it 🙁

  • I’ve changed my mind about the DUI or whatever else you’ll call it. It’s not a good idea. I know people who get drawn into long-winded discussions, leaving their friends waiting for hours on end, and when they’re back, it’s too late. With this feature, they’ll end up causing far more upset to their friends than they already do.

  • The LL viewer and servers continue to add functionality, new features and improvements and the TPVs must add them as well.

  • My problem is this. I can use the previous version with the EXACT same message but when I apply the same settings for photo in the newest, it’s:

    “Your hardware configuration does not meet minimum specifications needed to run the application. The application must close.”

    GFX card: GeForce GTX 580

    And again, I can run the previous version with the exact same settings without getting this error.

  • Word is a new version is coming soon… I just wanted to say how well the current 32bit version is working (64bit not so much). That being said please do no release another public beta, keep those for your dedicated beta group – As Ed Merryman would say “OK?” haha I am definitely looking forward to the merged in voice fixes and I think I speak for many others when I say I don’t want to be a beta tester. I think even that “ole grump” Ed Merryman would agree with me here… Keep up the good work guys and I look forward to the next one.
