at 8am SLT yesterday, we met beez Linden and had a lovely effusive chat with her while the grid came back to life, talking about a million things, including how fast the grid seemed to be running after the asset server maintenance.
At 7am SLT today, we're taking back some things we said about the asset server that were very far from impolite, and We Are Not Very Amused.
The grid has been down for 8 hours as we write this, and this is 8 hours' worth of plans, schemes and Coonspiracies(sic) down the drain.
If Real Life was like this I'd be sitting in a camping seat from Ravenous Dingo, shooting myself in the head with a revolver from Robbie Dingo and leaving the angels to sing an Asset Server Lullaby about the 400th time this happened. Or earlier, if I lost something priceless and irreplaceable. (Props to any country fans who get this reference)
Fortunately, most of us Patchoulis are much more well grounded. If you wanted us the past 8 hours, our RL self was rampaging through the bookshops of Perth devouring every possible book, and buying a few more. We had a good meal @ a popular local vegetarian restaurant, had a good dose of Ginseng coffee (ginseng + caffeine), and rented a bunch of Bubblegum Crisis spinoffs. (A.D. Police, Parasite Dolls)
If nothing else, at what is essentially the last of midnights in 2006, I say I'm sitting pretty in the catbird seat. What about you?
I'd be interested to hear comments. Drop me a line at the end of this post - what do you do when Linden Labs is forced to pull Agni out from under you.
