Linden Moon

Last night I downloaded the 1.23.1 Release Client viewer.

Straightaway I noticed a new font in the statistics menu, I don't particularly like it, but I do appreciate that it improve readability.

A friend IMed me to ask if I was having problems with things rezzing, and I said no.

And of course, I immediately began to have problems with thing rezzing.

I've noticed I myself don't rez in right away, appearing instead as a cloud, and when teleporting it takes noticeably longer times for objects to appear.

Tonight I clicked on myelf to get the edit menu and found I couldn't. Instead, I got the same pie menu you get when you click on another avatar (Profile/Appearance/Groups, etc). No edit.

I'm hoping that's a glitch and that things will be hunky-dory when I next log in.

Alas no. I just relogged, and the problem persists.

Here's a workaround: Click on a prim and choose edit. Then, without closing the Edit menu, click on any prim you're wearing. You'll be able to edit it.

(By the way, you can use the same technique to check out your friend's hairdo-- you know, the one she won't tell you the maker of).

Speaking of the edit menu, there's a new Permissions button in the Content tab that will let you set permissions on groups of prims or objects.

Best of all is the new moon. When it's near the horizon, it's huge-- and it casts a shadow on the water!
It gets obscured by clouds, too. Above are two photos.

I found that about right clicking on objects, too. To get to detach, I had to click on the "More" option first. Not sure how I like that yet.

I just found that out, Melissa. I'm not sure how I like it either. In fact, I can say with some certainly I DON'T like it.

I see you posted about the new moon, too.

I went back and tried adjusting the time to various hours of the night and found something strange. Formerly, the moon (always full, alas, but I can understand not wanting to mess with doing all the phases) would move across the sky as the night proceeded, but this morning I found the large full moon stuck just above the eastern horizon, no matter what I set the time of day to.

Guess it's time to hit the JIRA again.
