Avatar as OpenID key

There is a lot of discussions about using or not OpenID or OAuth to login to opensim servers. But what about the inverse process? We worked out a in-house solution, using a web server with access to OpenSim’s MySQL database… More after the break. We still think the way to go would be to debug and enhance the core module of OpenSim, so suggestions are still welcome.

Rolling update to 0.7.3 and new server

After a couple of days testing the new release, we decided to launch the rolling update of all sims. We take this oppportunity to move them all on a new, more powerful server.

The update process has been prepared so that it will take only a few minutes for each sim.

We found out the 0.7.3 release was working pretty well, we only found one bug with a NPC function. Not enough to stop march of progress. (I will just have to wait a little bit before deploying the amazing outfit vendor I am working on).

Experimenting de-centralized grid

OpenSim is supposed to be working with de-centralized server, that’s the goal of a grid, right? So, theorically, I should be able to run a region in a grid, while using another grid’s authentication server. And inventory and assets servers.
