My Opensim Grid “Pathlandia”

More pics of Pathlandia

To help with my exploration of the Hypergrid, I’ve set up my own Hypergrid-enabled Opensimulator grid running out of my home.

My grid “Pathlandia” is currently using Diva Canto’s Diva Standalone software [OpenSim 0.8 Release, Diva release: div-r25084], and I use Ener Hax’s SimonaStick for a simple database solution.  It’s all on an old yet reliable dedicated server in my house running Windows 7.

Visitors are always welcome.  There are many freely copyable curios and curiosities on the island, so please take copies of anything that catches your eye.  Enable Lightshare in your viewer when visiting to get the full effect of Pathlandia’s customized sky settings.

To see who’s been visiting Pathlandia, I use Maria Korolov’s script that automatically enters visitor information in a Google Spreadsheet. 
Here are my Visitor Logs.

UPDATE Jan 27 2012: Rick Anderson, Director of Virtual Worlds at Rutger’s Center for Online & Hybrid Learning and Instructional Technology, brought a group of 10 students to visit Pathlandia last night.  I’m happy to report that my desktop Opensim grid handled the load perfectly!

Thanks for visiting!

UPDATE Aug 13 2014: The Hypergrid Safari visited Pathlanda today.  20 people!  Here’s a great writeup of the event from Thirza Ember.

  1. I love your office picture. For me, it’s overlaid with my first meeting with you, in your LindenLab office in SL, in 2006. I miss that strange little guy and all his clocks and odd tchotchkes.
