Littlefield Grid Community Meeting – 3 Jan 2014

The monthly grid meeting took place as usual on the First Friday of the month, January 3, 2014.

Walter presented our new Community Connect Project, to provide the resources that smaller virtual communities need, at nominal or no cost. Communities and groups with at least ten active members can apply for the Community Connect Project and receive a 50% discount on Littlefield Grid region rentals, paying just $10.00 per month per full region (30,000 prims), for a minimum of four regions. Alternatively, groups who prefer to run their regions on their own hardware can, if accepted into the program, connect their regions to Littlefield Grid at no charge; the usual $5.00 monthly fee will be waived as long as the group remains active and their regions remain available 24×7. The Community Connect Project allows groups to use the Littlefield Grid infrastructure, saving them the overhead of maintaining a set of asset, inventory and group servers and maintaining the robust portion of the Opensimulator environment. We know that running a grid can be a very difficult and trying experience. The Community Connect Project means that small communities need not struggle with underpowered hardware and spend all their time to keep the world running. They can just enjoy each other. We have the resources to support them. We are hoping to assist other communities and share our resources.

In the past few weeks, live music performances came to Littlefield Grid! To encourage attendance, we will have one or two per month. There will be a monthly event at Sound City, the new club in Littlefield East. We were also very fortunate to get Joaquin Gustav, the popular guitarist, to play for us every Second Sunday at 3pm grid time. His next performance will be Sunday, January 12.

Also in Littlefield East, the new roller rink will open soon with a special event.

The Littlefield Art Gallery opening will be January 16. Talk to Omen Crow for details.

The Adventure Club will have its usual meeting the day after the grid meeting. This month’s tour will be of Phoenix Rising, the garden meditation sim designed by Enigma Namaste.

This Sunday, Luminaria region opens with the Festival of Lights for Twelfth Night, January 5 at 2:00 p.m. This is a stunning new winter region that will be decorated for the event with a dazzling display of lights. Ice dancing and ice skating will also be available.

We are having scheduled hangouts several nights a week at 8:00 p.m. grid time. Check the calendar for the evening’s location.

We have our regular weekly dance at Speakeasy on Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. with DJ Walter Balazic. In addition, Omen Crow DJ’s on Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m., and Elric DarkStorm is considering organizing a dance on Friday nights.

Toy McBride is going to create a photo board to display photos from events, helping to show visitors and newcomers who we are and what goes on here on Littlefield Grid. There was some discussion about the best place to display it.

In Opensimulator news, avatar physics will soon be available for us. In addition, there has been a rumor that there may soon be offline IM-to-email support.

The next grid meeting will be held on Friday, February 7 at 1:30 p.m. grid time.

Our website is in the process of being changed by Ashton…he has written a custom code for us
We will be upgrading some of the infrastructure around Feb/March. (grid server, hoping to make it twice as powerful as it is now) we are at about 15% capacity now… all the funds we receive from renters go back into the grid. In Nov we gained around 83 new users.

We have been approved for Bitcoin. Walter will investigate Bitcoin for use here, but not for commerce, just for paying rental tier, as some members cannot use PayPal.

We have moved everyone to Release 2 of version 8.0, newer releases have some bugs at the moment.

Avatar physics may be coming to Opensim. It seems to be a simple fix, and Cinder has supplied Justin with the code. Not sure if he will implement it yet.

*************************************************************************************************************************

Omen will have an art gallery opening Jan 16 (no DJ that night at Speakeasy)

Breedable pets – Omen & Chris had a successful test for them…they are still working on this project. The first LF breedable will be available soon…

If you have an announcement or event please let us know by the 15th of each month for the coming month, so that we can submit it to Hypergrid Business as well as the Littlefield Calendar.

We all enjoyed Molly’s blog post about her Littlefield experiences.

Cute and Kinky card shop Littlefield main region – let maralyn Demar know if you want to personalise any of the cards.

Omen is having a 50% off sale on all skins at BioLabs.

Aaack announced that Blender classes will resume next year in April; he will be away till then. Blender 101 classes are on YouTube if you wish to learn in your own time.

OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013 – Part 1

Toy McBride’s reflections on the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013

First day of the conference – Saturday September 7th 2013

With much excitement we gathered in keynote areas on OpenSimulator Community Conference grid, where we listened and watched the very first OS Community Conference.  I wasn’t sure what to expect at this event, or how it would play out, but I have to say I enjoyed it very much.  It was very interesting to see so many people from around the various virtual worlds gather in one place.

It commenced with conference open & welcome with a panel of speakers, then moving on to Keynote Panel, The Future of OpenSimulator.  Sadly after this part of the program I had to log out for the night, Australian time zone can be harsh in the virtual world.

What I can report on though is Littlefield Grid’s OSCC13 dance party held at Speakeasy region on LFgrid.  We had a fabulous turnout from the grid’s community plus some visitors from other grids, we were also lucky to have some of the keynote speakers attend the dance.  Thank you all for attending our celebration for OSCC13, we hope you enjoy your visit to our grid.

Below I have uploaded some pictures I took at the conference and from our dance party.
