GeekSpeak – Lost Technologies. Join the discussion on Saturday July 29th at 12pm SLT

What technologies and the skills to use them are lost in the past?  The Antikythera mechanism suggests that ancient technology was more sophisticated than we imagine. We have lost the secret of medieval stained glass, Damascus steel and Greek fire, that kept Byzantium safe for centuries.  We can no longer make Stradivarius violins or Roman concrete that lasted so much longer than our concrete lasts.

What drugs and medicines did the ancients discover in plants that we have lost?  What did Helen use in the Odyssey to drug her dinner guests?  What herbs did the medievals understand and use?  What did the wortcunners know that we have forgotten?

And what about the basic skills of primitive people?  Could you make fire using only sticks and leaves?  Would you be any good at flintknapping?  Could you spin thread using a drop spindle?

This week we discuss how people lived and worked with long forgotten skills that, someday, we may need to recover.

Redamancy Forest is a beautiful forest sim created on May 9th, 2017 for women to come and be...WOMEN!! Adelheid Mathy, the sim owner, found it in her heart, creative spirit, and her fabulous mind to create a sim that is geared towards women who crave a space free of judgment, harassment, and mindless chatter that distracts from fully enjoying Second Life.

The sim is managed by Solgazer.Sittingbull and is brimmed full of activities that the female avatar can enjoy: Dancing well into the night, cuddling with your lover or bestie, exploring the depths of the forest, opportunities to engage in enriching and intimate encounters, swimming, and a live DJ set on Tuesdays at 4 PM SLT and Thursdays at 7 PM SLT.

The theme is a natural forest, hence the name, so if you love natural settings, this is the spot for you ladies.

This is a female only sim, so no male lovers or friends are allowed.

Ready to meet gleeful and awesome women like you in a relaxing environment, hope on that train down below and we will see you soon. 

Teleport now!

Mamaa Saiz performs at Tranquil Cafe at 6pm SLT Tonight!

Yes, he's irreverent; and he's witty. But he's also a smooth-as-silk guitarist. He sings in a voice all his own. He's been charging his way through top Second Life music venues, lighting audiences on fire with his amazing musical variety: from smoky ballads to jazz classics; maybe a little country and western with a tear jerker and a dash of comedy for seasoning.

His acoustic guitar skills are first rate and he sings and plays 100% live with no backing tracks.  He has been influenced by many musicians including Carlos Jobim, Glenn Frye, James Taylor, and more.

"I've made a deal with Linda Ronstadt: I don't play her songs and she don't play mine. And if I stay 100 feet away I don't have to go to jail - again."
                                                                                        - Mamaa Saiz

Performing on July 26th at 6pm SLT

Additional Information:
Mamaa Saiz
Genre:  Acoustic guitar and vocals - timeless songs
Contact Mamaa directly to book a date. Fee: Best Offer + tips


"...he’s tasty. Mamaa knows how to swing and when to drive...He not only treats us to the depth and soul of some of the best music ever written, but he creates a ton of smiles along the way."                                                         - Traci Nubalo, Metaverse Tribune

This is Mamaa at Tranquil Cafe on 4/13/11

Second Life - Active Full Viewers - Camury Reporting...

All Second Life users are aware of the official Second Life Viewer, available on the main Second Life Downloads page. However, many Second Life developers, outside of Linden Lab, offer custom Second Life viewers. While Linden Lab does not support third-party viewers, many users choose to use these alternative viewers.

Second Life Viewer official:

What's important to know is that Linden Lab provides a Third-Party Viewer Policy to promote a positive and predictable experience for all Second Life Residents.

Down below you will see a listing of Third-Party viewers created by developers who have certified that they comply with the Third-Party Viewer Policy.

Viewer - Alchemy
An experimental Second Life™ viewer striving to be at the forefront of stability, performance, and technological advancement in the open-source metaverse viewer field. 

Platforms: Windows, MacOS, Linux.

Viewer - Black Dragon
The primary goal of Black Dragon is to enhance and refine the visuals of Second Life as well as having unique design approaches and features.      

Viewer - Firestorm
The next generation viewer from The Phoenix Firestorm Project, Firestorm is based on the LL V3 LGPL code and offers extensive interface customizability including V1 skin options, feature and option rich with 24/7 support. 

Platforms: Windows, MacOS, Linux

Viewer - Kokua
Kokua is an open source viewer for Second Life and OpenSim-based virtual worlds. The goal of Kokua is to improve the user interface and usability of the viewer through community involvement, thoughtful design, modern development methods, and a pro-change atmosphere.

Platforms: Windows, MacOS, Linux, Linux 64bit

Viewer - Catznip
Catznip aims to refine and reinvent your window into Second Life. Our focus is stability, usability, privacy and plenty of new original home grown features. It's about taking a fresh look at things and attempting to do them better. Catznip is the development viewer for the alternative implementation of the RLV specification. RLVa goes from Catznip into many other TPVs including Firestorm and Phoenix. This is especially useful for script developers as Catznip represents the future of RLVa often months ahead of the mainstream.

Viewer - Restrained Love
The RLV enhances your experience when you use it in conjunction with RLV-compatible objects, which are very common on the SL grid now. It is primarily intended to be used by BDSM fans with BDSM oriented objects in-world, which can restrict the user from detaching items, receiving IMs, hearing chat, teleporting, etc. It can also be useful for totally PG purposes, such as forcing to teleport somewhere (facilitating transport networks), changing the Windlight settings through scripts (helping sim owners), preventing from teleporting out of a maze, etc.

Viewer - Singularity
Singularity strives to combine the beloved look and feel of Viewer 1.23 with the latest and greatest of available technology, and to stay compatible with future Second Life changes and features.       
Platforms: Windows, Linux

The user should be wary of third-party viewers who have declined to self-certify compliance with Linden Lab policies or have been turned down for non-compliance with policies.
Other viewers such as Exodus, Imprudence and UkanDo have not been updated recently enough to be considered fully compatible with current Second Life services. Depending on their use, they may or may not meet your needs.

All viewers described above are projects that are regularly updated to track new developments in the Linden Lab viewer and implement a complete graphical environment. So, if you want to take advantage of all aspects of full viewer functionality, choose one of the viewers listed above and enjoy!
