Units of Mass

Monday, January 30th, 2006

About units of mass…
One of the things I notice about our world is that it seems… *small*. I had my user put his monitor up higher, so I could look down at him, but he still shakes his head and smiles condescendingly at me. I think part of the problem is that his camera is […]

llMoveToTarget Experiments

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

llMoveToTarget(vector target, float tau)
I took some measurements of the rate of llMoveToTarget().
Experimental Setup:
I ran tests with mass ranging from 0.16 to 80 essellograms. For each mass, I initiated a 10 meter upward vertical movement with tau = 1. To sample at various times along the trajectory, the following code was used:

Odyssey Gallery

Wednesday, January 11th, 2006

On Saturday morning 2006.01.07 the Odyssey Gallery was rezzed at Alice 28, 96.

And on Monday morning 2006.01.09 we made our first sale! Two chairs to an avatar with initials 2N. I didn’t see what the fuss was, after all, it’s open for business and the products are not-bad and at a reasonable price, we feel. […]
