Grid and Viewer Glitches?


 Lately it seems my alt Rezzdarnnit is living up to his name.

It's been a little more than a week since the February 1 outages that took out a number of sims for a while, caused people to have problems logging in, and other problems. Since then, I've heard of, and to a lesser degree experienced, a few issues that aren't just the usual lag. Some people are taking longer to rezz, longer to see others rezz, longer to see sims rezz, and some trouble logging in.
The news isn't *entirely* bad. Since upgrading my Firestorm on the day before the required update, my frames per second is sometimes quite a bit more than it was before, at least when there's few to no other avatars around. 

Checking the Grid Status Report, there was a mention of a long-running issue "Online Friends Display Issues," for close to a month, " We are aware that some of our Residents are currently experiencing issues with online friends not showing correctly. Our engineers are hard at work to correct this behavior as soon as possible; however, there may be an extended time frame before this occurs.
This hasn't been the first time the Grid has had more than the usual amount of bugs. During Second Life's move to Amazon Cloud servers, there were many to the point Linden Lab was asking for patience for the many weeks it would take. What could be causing these issues, we don't know, yet.

Hopefully things will be fixed soon.

  1. Yes, since the grid-wide problems, *many* Firestorm users have experienced continuing glitches: slow or missing chat, slow rezz of av and objects, weird TPs (the TP bar shows up twice!), very slow Edit windows, lag on Pie menu Edit, problems logging in, etc. But why isn't the Status page acknowledging these continued glitches??

  2. Just tested Catznip, and it also had the same glitches. So it's not Firestorm, it's SL itself.
