— Contents of Notecard —
Before doing any Hypergrid jumps, be sure you have set your Home location and have relogged since you set it.  If you don’t, Hypergrid jumps will not work.  This appears to be a bug.

Many people find the Imprudence viewer to be very good for using with both SL and other grids.  You can find it here: http://imprudenceviewer.org/

*** How to make Hypergrid Jumps in 4 easy steps ***
1) Open your World Map.
2) In the text box next to the Search button, enter  the Hypergrid Address.
3) Click the Search button and wait for the map to move to the jump region.
4) Click the Teleport button.

*** Our Starting Location ***
Hypergrid Address: 66.240.233.81:9001:pathlandia
Region Name: “Pathlandia”
Grid Location: jokaydiaGRID (Lower)
************************

Hypergrid Jump #1
Hypergrid Address: hypergrid.reactiongrid.com:9009
Region Name: “HG Gateway 1″
Grid Location: ReactionGrid (Middle)

We’ll be making this jump using one of the instant Hypergates on Pathlandia.  It’s the stone archway next to the Tardis..   Just walk up to the archway and walk through it.  You will automatically make a Hypergrid jump to “HG Gateway 1.”

For more information on how these instant Hypergates work, see:
http://becunningandfulloftricks.com/2010/10/29/the-metaphor-of-portals/

We will be meeting a French group of fellow Hypegrid travelers at this location.  They are participating in a Virtual Worlds Camp. (http://vwcamp.org)  Let’s explore with them!
I’ll be passing out Babbler devices that will automatically translate chat back and forth between french and english so we can all understand each other.

***
jokaydiaGRID has a Newbie Dome for folks to pick up freebies that can help them get started.  If you find any good freebies in your Hypergrid travels that you’d like to share, you can put them in the Newbie Dome.   There’s currently a lack of many good outfits and items for male avatars, so it would be great if we could find more items like that to share.

And we arrive on the region HG Gateway 1 on ReactionGrid.

Mimi.Muircastle: did our inventories jump with us?
Mimi.Muircastle: fait nos inventaires sauter avec nous?
Aloe.Cortex: i seem to have my invetory
Aloe.Cortex: Il me semble que mon Inventaire de
Pathfinder.Lester: yes, inventory should be with you
Pathfinder.Lester: we are now on a hypergrid gateway point on ReactionGrid
Pathfinder.Lester: this location is in the “Middle” of all the hypergrid regions
Pathfinder.Lester: so it’s a good place for jumps to other grids
LexGrey.Barbosa: for the distances ?
Pathfinder.Lester: LexGrey, precisely. yes.
LexGrey.Barbosa: in my opensim i try jump to pathlandia but says is so far, ja ja
Pathfinder.Lester: we can reach FrancoGrid from here

Mimi.Muircastle: the middle kingdom?
Mimi.Muircastle: l’empire du milieu?
Pathfinder.Lester: you can jump from middle to upper, usually

Mimetic.Core: i hope it catches on
Mimetic.Core: J’espère qu’il captures sur
Marmottina.Taurog: How do we actually make the jump, using the map ?
Pathfinder.Lester: marmottina, how do we make what jump?
Marmottina.Taurog: into another grid ?
Marmottina.Taurog: I’ve never done it
Pathfinder.Lester: Marmottina, there are different ways to jump to other grids.
Pathfinder.Lester: you’ve already made a jump!
Marmottina.Taurog: ah yes but that was magic ! :-)
Pathfinder.Lester: you jumped from jokaydiaGRID to ReactionGrid
Mal.Burns: hah – you just did!
Pathfinder.Lester: that was an “instant” hypergate on my land
Pathfinder.Lester: that’s one way to make jumps. ppl can set up instant jumpgates like mine.
Pathfinder.Lester: that take you to a specific region
Marmottina.Taurog: ok
Pathfinder.Lester: on a different grid
Pathfinder.Lester: there’s also a “manual” way
Pathfinder.Lester: if you look in the notecard i gave you, it describes how to make “manual” jumps to other grids
Marmottina.Taurog: right so that’s what we would do next ?
Mimi.Muircastle: can a hypergate be set to a variety of grids or only to one specific place?
Mimi.Muircastle: peut-on hypergate être réglé à une variété de grilles ou seulement à un endroit précis?
Pathfinder.Lester: you need to know the hypergrid address of where you want to jump.
Pathfinder.Lester: Marmottina, yes
Pathfinder.Lester: you can set gates up to let you select different grids
Pathfinder.Lester: Marmottina, yep, you got it.
Mimi.Muircastle: ty – that is what I was wondering
Mimi.Muircastle: Ty – c’est ce que je me demandais
Marmottina.Taurog: Ah OK
Marmottina.Taurog: thanks !
Peter.Miller: I think Path said there is a directory under construction?
Peter.Miller: Je pense que le chemin a dit il ya un répertoire en cours de construction?
Pathfinder.Lester: there are a couple different objects that you may see across the different grids
Pathfinder.Lester: Peter, there’s http://hyperica.com
Mimetic.Core: sometimes, if i wish really, really hard i spontaneously teleport to cool places througout the grids.
Mimetic.Core: parfois, si je veux vraiment, vraiment dur i spontanément téléport de beaux endroits througout les grilles.
Pathfinder.Lester: that’s a manually curated directory of many different hypergrid locations
Neo.Cortex: actually there are some directories
Mimi.Muircastle: tell us your secret, Mimetic
Pathfinder.Lester: there are also some different devices you’ll see inworld
Mimi.Muircastle: Racontez-nous votre secret, Mimetic
Pathfinder.Lester: here’s one…
Pathfinder.Lester: i’m standing next to a “HyperGate”
Pathfinder.Lester: it looks like the stargate from the movies and tv show. :)
Marmottina.Taurog: yes :-)
Mal.Burns: address list at http://www.hypergates.com
Neo.Cortex: i just had some talk about those with the builder, Kidd Pico
Pathfinder.Lester: these “stargate” hypergates are scripted to be part of a network…..
Pathfinder.Lester: they index reachable jump points
Mimi.Muircastle: I love the way those look – trekkie heaven:)
Mimi.Muircastle: J’aime la façon dont les comparer – ciel trekkie:)
LexGrey.Barbosa: in the web you can download one “iar” with the stargate
Neo.Cortex: at the moment we have not only two, but 3 versions of the HG protocol in use:
Pathfinder.Lester: but ONLY if the location has a stargate hypergate rezzed on it.

Pathfinder.Lester: une personne a été citant comment trouver les adresses hypergrid de différents endroits sur le hypergrid …..
Pathfinder.Lester: i blogged recently about that here: http://becunningandfulloftricks.com/2010/11/11/lets-build-and-share-lists-of-hypergrid-addresses/
Pathfinder.Lester: J’ai blogué récemment à ce sujet ici: http://becunningandfulloftricks.com/2010/11/11/lets-build-and-share-lists-of-hypergrid-addresses/
Pathfinder.Lester: there is no single “master list” yet
Pathfinder.Lester: il n’ya pas de «liste maîtresse» unique encore
Pathfinder.Lester: but there are different lists that are starting to come together.
Pathfinder.Lester: mais il ya des listes différentes qui commencent à se rassembler.
Pathfinder.Lester: in time, they will all coalesce i think.
Pathfinder.Lester: dans le temps, ils vont tous se fondre je pense.
Marmottina.Taurog: it’s exciting stuff !
Marmottina.Taurog: il est des choses passionnantes!
Pathfinder.Lester: yes
Pathfinder.Lester: oui

Mimi.Muircastle: good idea Neo
Mimi.Muircastle: bonne idée Neo
Pathfinder.Lester: there is another interesting hypergrid device on this region….
Pathfinder.Lester: il ya un autre appareil hypergrid intéressants sur cette région ….
reynald.raidegrave: merci beaucoup Marmottina ;-))

Mimetic.Core: i like that one
Mimetic.Core: i comme celui-là
Pathfinder.Lester: big white board. HGurl sign on it.
Pathfinder.Lester: grand tableau blanc. Inscrivez-vous HGurl sur elle.
Pathfinder.Lester: you can use this device to SEARCH for keywords
Pathfinder.Lester: vous pouvez utiliser ce périphérique pour rechercher les mots-clés
reynald.raidegrave: merci beaucoup Marmottina ;-))
reynald.raidegrave: i have big lag in the chat sorry
Pathfinder.Lester: i just searched for “Pathlandia” and it found it. see it on the board?
Pathfinder.Lester: Je viens de la recherche de “Pathlandia” et il l’a trouvé. le voir sur la carte?
LexGrey.Barbosa: great
Mimi.Muircastle: I see your address on Joykaydia, right?
Mimi.Muircastle: Je vois votre adresse sur Joykaydia, non?
Pathfinder.Lester: if you click on the entry for Pathlandia, it will hypergrid jump you to Pathlandia
Pathfinder.Lester: si vous cliquez sur l’entrée de Pathlandia, il hypergrid vous sautez à Pathlandia
Pathfinder.Lester: but sometimes the addresses might jump you to a wrong location. so be warned. lol
Pathfinder.Lester: mais parfois les adresses pourraient vous sauter à un mauvais endroit. donc être averti. lol
Peter.Miller: Does it search every grid @Path
Peter.Miller: T-il effectuer une recherche par quadrillage chemin @
Pathfinder.Lester: i don’t think it indexes everything
Pathfinder.Lester: Je ne crois pas qu’il soit tout index
Pathfinder.Lester: but the ability to search using keywords is really awesome!
Pathfinder.Lester: mais la capacité de recherche par mots clés est vraiment génial!
Mimetic.Core: i think you have to register your grid on the site
Mimetic.Core: Je pense que vous devez inscrire votre grille sur le site
Peter.Miller: Yes, very useful
Peter.Miller: Oui, très utile
Pathfinder.Lester: Mimetic, oh you do? that makes sense.
Pathfinder.Lester: Mimetic, oh tu faire? qui a du sens.

Pathfinder.Lester: cette région nous est désormais sur ReactionGrid, dans le milieu de la hypergrid.
Mimi.Muircastle: the real middle kingdom:)
Mimi.Muircastle: le véritable royaume du milieu:)
Pathfinder.Lester: there is another gateway called “HG Gateway 2″….also ReactionGrid, but on the Upper hypergrid.
Pathfinder.Lester: il ya une autre passerelle appelée “HG Gateway 2 “…. aussi ReactionGrid, mais sur le hypergrid supérieur.
Peter.Miller: There’s a game here: guess the search term
Peter.Miller: Il ya un jeu ici: deviner le terme de recherche
Pathfinder.Lester: since I now work for ReactionGrid, I can build on both of them. so I will be adding things to both of them to help people jump to different places.
Pathfinder.Lester: depuis que je travaille maintenant pour ReactionGrid, je pourrai m’appuyer sur deux d’entre eux. Je serai donc à ajouter des choses à tous les deux pour aider les gens passer à des endroits différents.
Pathfinder.Lester: i have added this HGURL device, and the stargate Hypergate…and a kiosk about our Hypergrid Adventurers Club. :D
Pathfinder.Lester: J’ai ajouté ce dispositif HGURL, et la porte des étoiles Hypergate … et un kiosque sur notre Club Hypergrid aventuriers. : D

Pathfinder.Lester: maybe like a train station. so people can hang out and meet people who are passing through.
Pathfinder.Lester: peut-être comme une gare. que les gens puissent sortir et rencontrer des gens qui sont de passage.
vinc.sonic: oh sure
vinc.sonic: :)
Pathfinder.Lester: this region only exists as a gateway waypoint for folks
Pathfinder.Lester: cette région n’existe que comme un point de passage de passerelle pour les gens
Mimi.Muircastle: cafe middle kingdom
Mimi.Muircastle: Moyen Empire café
Pathfinder.Lester: but could be fun to just hang out now and then and see who stops by
Pathfinder.Lester: mais il pourrait être amusant de simplement vous détendre de temps en temps et voir qui s’arrête
Mimetic.Core: @mimi – you’re realling pitching the middle kingdom thing ;)
Mimetic.Core: @ Mimi – vous êtes realling pitching la chose empire du milieu;)
Mal.Burns: yes – recording script for sim visitors
Mimi.Muircastle: sorry – just caught my imagination:)
Mimi.Muircastle: Désolé – juste pris mon imagination:)
Pathfinder.Lester: Mimi, good imagination. :)
Pathfinder.Lester: Mimi, bonne imagination. :)
Pathfinder.Lester: i must leave now, too
Pathfinder.Lester: i hope this was fun for everyone
Pathfinder.Lester: J’espère que cela a été amusant pour tout le monde
vinc.sonic: me too :)
Peter.Miller: yes, time to go
Peter.Miller: oui, le temps d’aller
Mimi.Muircastle: me too this has been fun:) ty again Path!
Mimi.Muircastle: moi aussi cela a été amusant:) ty nouveau chemin!
Mimetic.Core: it was a blast for sure
Mimetic.Core: il a été une explosion à coup sûr
Pathfinder.Lester: my pleasure
Pathfinder.Lester: J’ai le plaisir
vinc.sonic: have fun bye
Pathfinder.Lester: hope to see you all again soon
Pathfinder.Lester: Au plaisir de vous revoir tous bientôt
LexGrey.Barbosa: thanks, see you
Pathfinder.Lester: have a great day. bye!
Peter.Miller: Thanks, Path — nice seeing everyone
Pathfinder.Lester: ont une belle journée. bye!
Peter.Miller: Merci, Chemin – nice voir tout le monde

Pim Peccable
Niko Donburi
Mari Asturias
Chimera Cosmos
Peter Miller
Kaseido Quandry

Pathfinder Lester

We begin on the region Pathlandia on jokaydiaGRID.

Pathfinder Lester: how’s everyone doing this evening? our meeting officially starts at 10pm GMT, so more folks should be coming soon.
Anastasios Aurotharius: I’m doing well…ty….and looking forward to hypergridding for the first time
Anastasios Aurotharius: :)
Anastasios Aurotharius: how are you, Pathfinder?
Pathfinder Lester: Anastasios, cool!
Pathfinder Lester: i’m doing well, ty
Thinkerer Melville: I am here as reporter, Path — for my blog
Anastasios Aurotharius: congratulatons on your new job
Pathfinder Lester: Thinkerer, oh cool!
Lloud Laffer: My first taste of hypergridding as well.
Pathfinder Lester: Lloud, cool!
Lloud Laffer: I was aplogizing to Anastasios for my appearance – still not grasping inventory transfer.
Pathfinder Lester: if you’ve never hypergrid jumped before, there’s one thing you need to do first…..
Pathfinder Lester: you need to have set your home location. hypergrid jumps won’t work until you’ve done that and have relogged since you first set your home.
Lloud Laffer: oh, ok.
Pathfinder Lester: so feel free to set your home to this location if you wish. and relog.
Anastasios Aurotharius: at the risk of sounding foolish…how do you do that?
Pathfinder Lester: then hypergrid jumps will work for you from then on
Lloud Laffer: ok excellent. will do.
Pathfinder Lester: no worries
Pathfinder Lester: go to the World menu on your viewer
Pathfinder Lester: and just select “Set Home to Here”
Pathfinder Lester: then relog
Pathfinder Lester: the hypergrid protocol needs to “know” you have a home before you can jump between grids.
Pathfinder Lester: ok, i’ll officially kick things off….
Pathfinder Lester: welcome to the Hypergrid Adventurers Club! thank you for joining us today……
Pathfinder Lester: i see familiar faces, and some new ones! :D
Pathfinder Lester: the first half of each of our meetings (30min) is an open discussion.
Pathfinder Lester: second half will be a live tour of the hypergrid……
Metta Lane: well, I have a new face but I am old ;-)
Pathfinder Lester: metta, lol
Mari Asturias: :)
Lloud Laffer: Good one Metta, me too. I feel nothing like myself!
Pathfinder Lester: we like to start by having folks just introduce themselves in open chat. say whatever you’d like about yourself and your interests/projects.
Pathfinder Lester: i also post a full transcript of every meet on my blog, so this is your chance to introduce yourselves and your projects/interests to a wider audience….
Pathfinder Lester: and if you do NOT wish for your chat to appear in my blog transcript, please just say so and I will redact your comments from the transcript.
Mari Asturias: Hi, I’m Mari Asturias for 5 years in SL .. I’m grieving my inventory ATM :) I am and work with educators – with SDSU and other orgs .. I did some Global Kids work and I’m REALLY interested in hypergridding yay!!
Metta Lane: I am Maria irl and on Tuesday I will have a meeting with the computer department at my uni about the possibilities to set up an open sim
Pathfinder Lester: i’ll pass out today’s notecard while you all chat. plus a little gift that might be useful to you as a hypernaut. ;)

— Contents of Notecard —
Before doing any Hypergrid jumps, be sure you have set your Home location and have relogged since you set it.  If you don’t, Hypergrid jumps will not work.  This appears to be a bug.

Many people find the Imprudence viewer to be very good for using with both SL and other grids.  You can find it here: http://imprudenceviewer.org/

*** How to make Hypergrid Jumps in 4 easy steps ***
1) Open your World Map.
2) In the text box next to the Search button, enter  the Hypergrid Address.
3) Click the Search button and wait for the map to move to the jump region.
4) Click the Teleport button.

*** Our Starting Location ***
Hypergrid Address: 66.240.233.81:9001:pathlandia
Region Name: “Pathlandia”
Grid Location: jokaydiaGRID (Lower)
************************

Hypergrid Jump #1
Hypergrid Address: hypergrid.reactiongrid.com:9009
Region Name: “HG Gateway 1″
Grid Location: ReactionGrid (Middle)

We’ll be making this jump using one of the instant Hypergates on Pathlandia.  It’s the stone archway next to the Tardis..   Just walk up to the archway and walk through it.  You will automatically make a Hypergrid jump to “HG Gateway 1.”

For more information on how these instant Hypergates work, see:
http://becunningandfulloftricks.com/2010/10/29/the-metaphor-of-portals/

“HG Gateway 1″ is a handy jump point in the “middle” of the Hypergrid.

Hypergrid Jump #2
Hypergrid Address: 88.191.79.199:9001:Eiffel
Region Name: “Eiffel”
Grid Location: FrancoGrid (Upper)

We’ll make this jump the manual way (see above “How to make Hypergrid Jumps in 4 easy steps.”)

This location features an accurately scaled reconstruction of the Eiffel Tower based on real life architectural plans, as well recreations of other classic French buildings.

***
jokaydiaGRID has a Newbie Dome for folks to pick up freebies that can help them get started.  If you find any good freebies in your Hypergrid travels that you’d like to share, you can put them in the Newbie Dome.   There’s currently a lack of many good outfits and items for male avatars, so it would be great if we could find more items like that to share.
— End of Notecard —

Pim Peccable: I’m still just a hobbyist at all this. I build (made this Avatar for example) and hope to find time to expand my involvement
Niko Donburi: I’m Niko, nice to meet everyone. In SL I’m known for my live music performances (Google me for links, downloads, etc). Here on the Hypergrid I am working on some machinima and photography which you can see at my deviantART site.
Lloud Laffer: Hi, I’m Lloud Laffer, about 5 years in VWorlds as well. I’m interesing in distance learning technology.
Kaseido Quandry: I’m an adjunct law professor and grad student at Arizona State, teaching a class in virtual worlds next semester
Anastasios Aurotharius: hello, my name is Anastasios…I have been in Second Life for 2 years….have a general interest in virtual worlds….and am planning to write a blog about VW’s
Thinkerer Melville: I am Thinkerer Melville. — check my profile for blog (http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/) and web links I am here to report on this club
Chimera Cosmos: will have to type up the little intro to copy/paste instead of making it up each time heheh
Pathfinder Lester: lol
Peter Miller: I’m a biologist/educator from Liverpool UK
Pathfinder Lester: yes, a good idea!
Peter Miller: By appearance, Pathfinder’s evil twin
Lloud Laffer: lol
Arwenna Stardust: Hi Im Clare Atkins late of the SLENZ project – I teach IT in SL and hopefully here soon too :) Have two sims here Kokako and Applewood
Metta Lane: (me giggles
Pathfinder Lester: i find these introductions are always useful to help build potential collaborative connections between folks
Mari Asturias: has always liked reading about the SLENZ project
Chimera Cosmos: I’m Chimera Cosmos on a bunch of grids but lived on Jokaydia in SL since 2008. Been in SL since Fall 2006.
Pathfinder Lester: yeah, it’s a great project!
Johnnie Waugh: Member of VLENZ, builder of Andelain on NZVWG.
Arwenna Stardust: we are now vlenz - http://vlenz.edumuve.ac.nz
Chimera Cosmos: I like teaching basic SL skills to faculty and folks to help them integrate here, and doing touring and stuff.
Pathfinder Lester: lots of interesting virtual world projects coming out of Australia and New Zealand.
Arwenna Stardust: I thin we tend to be ‘risk takers’ and perhaps have more freedom than some others
Chimera Cosmos: Pim, the main reason I made another Chimera over on Franco grid was cuz I was so sad I missed Pandora!
Cider Jack: Hallo Arwenna :)
Chimera Cosmos: thought maybe a “Local” could get in- but still no dice
Arwenna Stardust: I want to see Pandora too :)
Arwenna Stardust: the photos looked amazing!
Cider Jack: Sorry about the non-functional clock I littered your sim with earlier this week Path :)
Pathfinder Lester: yes, Pandora is a closed region, but they opened it up special for us the other day
Pathfinder Lester: no worries Cider
Cider Jack: there is a working one now in the freebie dome
Pathfinder Lester: oh cool. i’ll grab one there.
Arwenna Stardust: yes – I saw that Path – Im hoping they might be persuaded to open it again for us :)
Chimera Cosmos: Can you get us back in there Path? Why is it closed?
Chimera Cosmos: I loved the Pandora-ish sim at RFL
Pathfinder Lester: since we have a few ppl here who have never hypergrid jumped before, if you folks have any questions please ask in chat and we’ll do our best to answer.
Pathfinder Lester: Chimera, i don’t know why it’s closed. the region owner just has it that way.
Lloud Laffer: ty path
Chimera Cosmos: Secret Experiments hahahah
Mari Asturias: has never hypergridded before and is a tad bit nervous
Arwenna Stardust: hehe Chimera
Delenn.Daines: are we going to hypergrid jump today?
Pathfinder Lester: Delenn, yes
Niko Donburi raises his hand. “I’ve been having a lot of trouble searching for sims to TP in via the Map. What exactly do we put in the search box?”
Arwenna Stardust: Mari – it is great!
Pathfinder Lester: at 10:30GMT we’ll go on a trip
Mari Asturias: grins
Peter Miller: You will love it @Mari
Lloud Laffer: does hypergridding scramble our atoms across the universe?!
Chimera Cosmos: you need the web-url-like address
Kaseido Quandry: yep, this’ll be my first time too
Pathfinder Lester: Niko, good question.
Chimera Cosmos: for other grids
Chimera Cosmos: Path will give them to us
Pathfinder Lester: you need to know the exact address of the hypergrid region you are searching for
Pathfinder Lester: one place to find those addresses is here: http://hyperica.com
Pathfinder Lester: but Hyperica is a manually curated list of addresses, so not everything will be on that site.
Chimera Cosmos: and Jokay has the hypergrid addresses for the sims here in http://jokaydiagrid.com – in case you need one to hypergrid back to
Peter Miller: :)
Pathfinder Lester: there are other lists out there you can find. i blogged recently about other lists. http://becunningandfulloftricks.com/2010/11/11/lets-build-and-share-lists-of-hypergrid-addresses/
Pathfinder Lester: so 1 way you can hypergrid jump is the “manual” way…..
Arwenna Stardust: yes a good idea to share lists Path
Pathfinder Lester: typing in hypergrid addresses in the world map and searching for them…..
Niko Donburi: so do I put all of this in: secondlife://85.214.144.62:9000 or remove some of it?
Pathfinder Lester: if you open the notecard i passed around, there are instructions on how to manual jump in the notecard.
Pathfinder Lester: Niko, take out the “secondlife://” part
Pathfinder Lester: so, for example, the hypergrid address for THIS region is: 66.240.233.81:9001:pathlandia
Johnnie Waugh: hmmm Path seems that with osgrid going to OpenSim one cant hypergrid from or too Osgrid sites anymore..is that correct/
Joel Foner: hi guys
Joel Foner: couldn’t figure out the hyperteleport thing… but got here anyway – only have a few mins but hopefully more next time :)
Pathfinder Lester: Johnnie, correct.
Pathfinder Lester: the reason for that is…..
Pathfinder Lester: OSgrid is running version 1.5 of the hypergrid protocol
Pathfinder Lester: and many grids are still running version 1.0
Johnnie Waugh: ahhh……. so that is it
Pathfinder Lester: can’t jump between 1.0 and 1.5 grids
Pathfinder Lester: but everyone is working to upgrade to 1.5 asap
Pathfinder Lester: jokaydiagrid is running 1.0
Johnnie Waugh: yes …. dayam it
Pathfinder Lester: so today we’ll be making jumps to only 1.0 version grids
Johnnie Waugh: was trying to jump from osgfrid to jokay yesterday
Mari Asturias: How long until jokaydia upgrades?
Pathfinder Lester: 1.5 was just recently released, so many grids are still working on upgrades.
Pathfinder Lester: Mari, i’m not sure. probably a month or so?
Mari Asturias: nods
Pathfinder Lester: some grids are more focused on being “cutting edge”… like OSgrid
Arwenna Stardust: and OSGrid is running Os 7 and we are still on 6.9 ?
Anastasios Aurotharius: I have a question about the web page links that should connect automatically…..I had snowglobe installed at one time and now everytime I click on a link it tries to open snowglobe…
Arwenna Stardust: does that make a difference too?
Pathfinder Lester: other grids are focused on stability….and usually wait a bit before upgrading
Johnnie Waugh: yes that is so…but with problems
Pathfinder Lester: that’s why we’re waiting with ReactionGrid to upgrade
Arwenna Stardust: yes good idea
Johnnie Waugh: NZVWG is on 7 and there havent been any problems like osgrid but it might be a scaleability thing
Pathfinder Lester: lots of edus and businesses use ReactionGrid, so stability is really important to them.
Arwenna Stardust: I like a little stability in my virtual life :)
Pathfinder Lester: Arwenna, yes
Pathfinder Lester: OpenSim 6.9 uses Hypergrid 1.0. and Opensim 7.0 uses Hypergrid 1.5
Arwenna Stardust: ah yes! I thought there was a connection
Talvin Muircastle: Heh. What version does the Documentation Wiki use?
Johnnie Waugh: wish they had made them compatible
Pathfinder Lester: ya i know
Talvin Muircastle despairs of the wiki. First step in writing any script: do tests, see if it really works like that here.
Johnnie Waugh: or compatible downwards
Pathfinder Lester: kind of a pain right now. but a passing pain. ;)
Arwenna Stardust: but hard with a small devt team John
Johnnie Waugh: true
Arwenna Stardust: growing pains eh Path ? :)
Pathfinder Lester: lol yes :)
Pathfinder Lester: so i described “manual” hypergrid jumps……
Pathfinder Lester: but there are other kinds……one kind is to use an “instant” hypergate……
Arwenna Stardust: a blamgate
Lloud Laffer: yah, I would hate to be them. so hard to keep up with viewers.
Arwenna Stardust: grins
Johnnie Waugh: yes… they work well
Pathfinder Lester: a gate object inworld that is scripted to instantly take you to a specific grid when you walk into it.
Mari Asturias: love that idea
Pathfinder Lester: they are handy if you want to easily jump to a specific location
Arwenna Stardust: one step and BLAM you are there
Pathfinder Lester: we’ll use both an “instant” hypergate (aka, blamgate) and a manual jump today
Pathfinder Lester: now when you jump to other grids….your identity, avatar and inventory remain with you.
Cider Jack: to get back do we use a etagmalb?
Lloud Laffer: amazing. in my short usage I have been quitting between each grid change. already learning new things.
Mari Asturias: @Cider hehe
Pathfinder Lester: and if you pick up things in other grids, they will be in your inventory wherever you go
Lloud Laffer: I get it – that is so awesome.
Pathfinder Lester: your av’s identity and inventory “live” on the grid where you created the account
Cider Jack: like you always bring the weather with you eh
Pathfinder Lester: any questions so far?
Anastasios Aurotharius: smiles @ CJ
Pathfinder Lester: it can be confusing at first, but it all makes sense over time. :)
Lloud Laffer: so uuids can be accessed outside of being loged-in? does that questino make sense?
Arwenna Stardust: just watch out for boxes though – sosmetimes if you take a box the contents dont transfer with you – have to open the box when you get it – then you are usually ok
Lloud Laffer: ok
Pathfinder Lester: Lloud, I’m not sure about that, technically.
Kaseido Quandry: ahh, good tip, thanks!
Arwenna Stardust: :)
Pathfinder Lester: let me find a helpful page on how hypergridding works.
Cider Jack: I think, Lloud, it just accesses your home grid database from wherever you are
Pathfinder Lester: here: http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Hypergrid
Chimera Cosmos: NewWorldGrid Chimera modified her clothes over here and it didn’t stick when she went back
Pathfinder Lester: Cider, yeah, that’s how it works pretty much.
Chimera Cosmos: she came to visit ;-)
Lloud Laffer: I don’t think uuids are accessibel without being loggedin – it must be that inventory is transferred locally by the client.
Lloud Laffer: viewer
Cider Jack: Yeah, sometimes after hypergridding, I log back in on here and I’m ruthed
Pathfinder Lester: i’ve found that if you modify your appearance while hypergrid jumping, the results can sometimes be….unpredictable. :P
Pathfinder Lester: so rule of thumb….
Delenn.Daines: I am curious as to why my avie looks like it has stripes of yellow and purple. Something to do with my graphics settings?
Pathfinder Lester: change your clothes before you travel. ;)
Arwenna Stardust: LOL!! nicely put Path!
Lloud Laffer: I AM NOT RUTH!
Chimera Cosmos: yes, unpredictably unpredictable haha
Peter Miller: A quick rebake fixes that
Arwenna Stardust: ah and take a HGAC T shirt while you are here!
Kaseido Quandry: Delenn, I’ve been gettiing that a bit – and yep, rebake fixes
Pathfinder Lester: yes, rebaking often fixes tings
Kaseido Quandry: CTRL+ALT+R
Pathfinder Lester: i also handed out a Babbler device to everyone…..
Chimera Cosmos: sometimes it’s that you are close to crashing and when you do the system doesn’t remember all you had done
Lloud Laffer: oh yah, where’s the tshirts?
Pathfinder Lester: just wear that…..
Pathfinder Lester: and then you can make whatever you say in open chat be translated into other languages
Pathfinder Lester: if you visit a grid in a foreign country, helps to have Babber :)
Arwenna Stardust: so what will we need today Path?
Pathfinder Lester: i’ll take mine off today
Anastasios Aurotharius: translators are amazing
Pathfinder Lester: well, today i wanted to show folks a handy location in the “middle” of the hypergrid
Pathfinder Lester: it’s a good jump point to upper and lower locations on the hypergrid
Johnnie Waugh: upper and lower?
Pathfinder Lester: and then i thought we’re re-vist the eiffel tower on FrancoGrid
Pathfinder Lester: since many folks wanted to see that but couldn’t make our previous tour
Pathfinder Lester: ah, yes, upper and lower….i will explain….
Arwenna Stardust: oh yes!
Anastasios Aurotharius: sounds fun :)
Pathfinder Lester: all of the different grids are all laid out in a big map…..
Mari Asturias: ah yes .. “The Map”
Pathfinder Lester: but there is a bug right now that does not let you jump further than 4096 regions away…..
Chimera Cosmos: found some interesting bot-like females underneath the Eiffel Tower
Kaseido Quandry: o.O
Cider Jack: don’t tell me JokaydiaGrid is in the lower grid – I thought this was a nice neighborhood :(
Chimera Cosmos: don’t know if they are always there or if it was special ;-)
Pathfinder Lester: so you cannot jump directly to locations all the time. sometimes you need to make a “hop”
Pathfinder Lester: yes
Pathfinder Lester: jokaydia is lower ;)
Pathfinder Lester: DOWNTOWN
Pathfinder Lester: lol
Cider Jack: lol
Pathfinder Lester: FrancoGrid is Upper.
Arwenna Stardust: where you find the most interesting people!
Mari Asturias: really did chuckle out loud
Pathfinder Lester: Arwenna, you got it. :)
Anastasios Aurotharius: smiles @ Kim and Chim
Cider Jack: where all the best restraunts are!
Pathfinder Lester: hypergrid adventures to far away places always involve a “waypoint” jump
Pathfinder Lester: like today
Pathfinder Lester: we will jump to a place on the Middle part of the map. then we’ll jump to Upper to visit the Eiffel tower on FrancoGrid
Pathfinder Lester: any questions?
Arwenna Stardust: awesome!
Mari Asturias: groovy .. let’s go!
Niko Donburi: I’ve been playing with Google Map and trying to come up with a way of picturing where things are. I’m putting all upper grids above the tropic of cancer, all lower below the tropic of capricorn. You have to stop at the equator as a lay over…
Arwenna Stardust: dont forget about setting home :)
Cider Jack: I’ve got a question – when do we eat?
Anastasios Aurotharius: does everyone have their parachute?
Pathfinder Lester: Niko, cool!
Pathfinder Lester: let’s start our journey now
Arwenna Stardust: Path you may need to remind people about Home
Pathfinder Lester: yes
Pathfinder Lester: make sure you’ve set your Home location
Pathfinder Lester: you can’t jump until you’ve done that
Talvin Muircastle is only here for the chat, I don’t jump. ;)
Joel Foner: ok so is phoenix a ‘really bad idea’ for hypergird? (fourth crash)
Pathfinder Lester: Joel, ow
Pathfinder Lester: i recommend Imprudence
Peter Miller: I’m using Imprudence — rock solid
Niko Donburi: @Joel; yeah, use Impredence
Talvin Muircastle: Joel: Phoenix and OpenSimulator don’t seem to get along.
Arwenna Stardust: Imp rocks :)
Pathfinder Lester: our first jump today will be thru this gate over here…..
Pathfinder Lester: wait for us when you get to the other side :)
Pathfinder Lester: just walk into the gate one at a time
Pathfinder Lester: poof
Pathfinder Lester: next!
Pathfinder Lester: i feel like a train conductor
Pathfinder Lester: room for everyone in this train. no pushing!
Talvin Muircastle: No, this is part of education. “Get in line, one at a time, no pushing, quickly now…”
Pathfinder Lester: lol
Pathfinder Lester: exactly Talvin
Talvin Muircastle speaks from practical experience on that one.
Pathfinder Lester: i’m going to go ahead and go in
Pathfinder Lester: to see folks on the other side
Pathfinder Lester: see you there!

The group walks through an Instant Hypergate on the region Pathlandia on jokaydiaGRID.

And we arrive on the region HG Gateway 1 on ReactionGrid.

Pathfinder.Lester: wooohoo
Mari.Asturias: So… how does “friending” work with the hypergridding?
Chimera.Cosmos: we’re landing on top of the globe
Kaseido.Quandry: oh, good question
Anastasios.Aurotharius: I love the way people materialize out of the stars
Chimera.Cosmos: that’s actually kinda cool
Pathfinder.Lester: so we’ve all jumped
Pathfinder.Lester: we are on a totally different grid
Pathfinder.Lester: ReactionGrid
Pathfinder.Lester: this is a waypoint
Lloud.Laffer: friends and inventory seem preserved.
Pathfinder.Lester: any questions so far?
Pathfinder.Lester: Lloud, yep!
Lloud.Laffer: so cool
Niko.Donburi: make a LM here everyone, good to have!
Delenn Daines: so I noticed that the text changed under peoples names
Pathfinder.Lester: Delenn, yes!
Delenn Daines: bc we are on a different grid?
Pathfinder.Lester: you see your “home grid” in your name tag
Kaseido.Quandry: yep – tagged with our homeworlds?
athfinder.Lester: Kaseido, precisely
Pathfinder.Lester: so we started on jokaydiaGRID. now we’re on ReactionGrid. and we’re headed to FrancoGrid.
Metta.Lane: This is cool!
Anastasios.Aurotharius: there’s no place like home…
Pathfinder.Lester: so open your notecards
Pathfinder.Lester: you’ll see your inventory is still with you
Anastasios.Aurotharius: what would Dorothy think?
Delenn Daines: now if I could only have my inventory from sl!
Pathfinder.Lester: open your world map
Pathfinder.Lester: search for “88.191.79.199:9001:Eiffel”
Pathfinder.Lester: then click teleport
Lloud.Laffer: jump there – don’t log out.
Pim.Peccable: Glad to know I don’t have to kill any witches
Anastasios.Aurotharius: lions and tigers and bears….oh…my….
Peter.Miller: Hi Jenny
Jenny.Oliver: HI!
Peter.Miller: Nice landing :)
Jenny.Oliver: I came from Midrivers Project!
Pathfinder.Lester: Jenny that’s cool!
Lloud.Laffer: Ah, got it! Off to Eiffel- mon dieu!
Metta.Lane: Now Eiffel is showing up on the map
Pim.Peccable: We are going to 88.191.79.199:9001:Eiffel next, Jenny
Pathfinder.Lester: see you at Eiffel!

The group makes a manual Hypergrid jump from the region HG Gateway 1 on ReactionGrid to the region Eiffel on FrancoGrid.

Pathfinder.Lester: we made it!
Cider.Jack: no elevator?
Chimera.Cosmos: Here are those bot-ladies!
Pim.Peccable: we can fly you know
Chimera.Cosmos: they have some freebie hair circa 2008 from SL hahahah
Metta.Lane: This is a truly impressive build!
Anastasios.Aurotharius: the romance….
Anastasios.Aurotharius: lol
Pim.Peccable: It’s actual size!
Mari.Asturias: I”ve never actually been to the Eiffel Tower… this is nice
Pathfinder.Lester: so this is an accurate build of the Eiffel tower. still under construction, but mostly done
Pathfinder.Lester: it’s exactly 324 meters high. just like in RL.


Cider.Jack: I want to drop a penny from the top
Arwenna.Stardust: wow so not built to scale – just built!
Pathfinder.Lester: i don’t think there are any freebies here.
Pathfinder.Lester: this region is a workplace for architects
Arwenna.Stardust: I want to bungee jump from the top!
Jenny.Oliver: This is phenomenal
Pathfinder.Lester: they are working on recreating classic french architecture
Pathfinder.Lester: anyone have any more questions?
Chimera.Cosmos: not much up there yet
Lloud.Laffer: Wow, thanks Pathfinder – this exceeded my expectations. The gates are so vital to the experience.
Chimera.Cosmos: if you take a LM here, it’s just local I think
Kaseido.Quandry: oh, that makes sense
Pathfinder.Lester: yes, you cannot make hypergrid LMs
Kaseido.Quandry: within grids
Pathfinder.Lester: but the devs are working on it
Pathfinder.Lester: it will get there. :)
Lloud.Laffer: Agreed!
Chimera.Cosmos: the central area of Francogrid is quite extensive
Niko.Donburi: so are you storing locations on a notecard then?
Chimera.Cosmos: big buildings and landscaping
Jenny.Oliver: Told my island admin in SL about this. I think I sold her to this new experience!
Pathfinder.Lester: Niko, that’s what I do, yes.
Arwenna.Stardust: Francogrid is great for freebies :)
Mari.Asturias: hehe.. coming back here later
Pathfinder.Lester: and all the notecards from past HGAC meetings have all the details so you can visit past tours
Johnnie.Waugh: yes i’ve been doing that and it works
Chimera.Cosmos: which sim has the most freebies here?
Pathfinder.Lester: i include those notecards in every blog post I make about each trip
Jenny.Oliver: I found some wonderful textures on the FrancoGrid
Arwenna.Stardust: yes – definitely worth checking out this grid – somewonderful places here
Chimera.Cosmos: didn’t have time to look around last night
Chimera.Cosmos: non ha avuto tempo per guardarsi intorno la notte scorsa
Pathfinder.Lester: on francogrid, the place for freebies is a region “Ile aux freebies”
Pathfinder.Lester: appropriately named, eh: ;)
Pathfinder.Lester: we can make a local tp there now if folks want to.
Anastasios.Aurotharius: ty so much for all of this Pathfinder….it’s great!
Pathfinder.Lester: just open world map and search for Ile aux freebies
Pathfinder.Lester: just a local teleport on this grid, so it works normally
Lloud.Laffer: yes, thanks Path. Also – best wishes on the new job IRL!
Pathfinder.Lester: ty Lloud
Pim.Peccable: Did they close Pandora yet?
Pathfinder.Lester: Pim, i think so.
Chimera.Cosmos: Island of Freebies heheh
Pathfinder.Lester: i see pandora on the map
Pathfinder.Lester: but dunno if it is open
Chimera.Cosmos: yes but you can’t TP there
Cider.Jack: thanks for the adventure, Path :)
Pathfinder.Lester: my pleasure, my friend
Cider.Jack attempts to hypergrid backwards…
Pathfinder.Lester: i see many green dots on “Ile aux freebies” right now
Pathfinder.Lester: lol
Pathfinder.Lester: and now I too must head out. RL calls.
