Broken landing points and angry grid owners...
I know will be banned in next region where try to help, but...
Peoples, you must understand that visitors in your sim who enter for first time must load ALL items around landing point, start ALL scripts, load ALL multimedia and most of visitors not use copybot or text viewers...
Normal user use firestorm (may be old version) and come to look around, not to be chocked from quantity of your scripts, greeters and givers.

Wait... no need to ban me from your region - i see only this:
New home for OpenSim Genome Island and Nova Archaeology
Virtual Islands for Better Education is pleased to announce some of our grids have a new home.
Genome Island by Max Chatnoir (Mary Anne Clark in RL) is a collection of genetics and cell biology activities. It recreates many of the activities of her Second Life Genome Island (and some not there) which has been a Featured Destination and used by many biology teachers for over a decade.
Nova Archaeology by Nova Saunders (Marion Smeltzer in RL) is a recreation of several archaeology sites from the midwest including interactive displays.
They are both hosted on the Science Circle OpenSim Project and are publically available and hypergrid accessible.

To start a new grid...
Hello all!
Me and a friend is talking about starting a new grid, that we, when its up, would connect to hypergrid etc.

Does anyone here know about a good server that we can rent from. Cheap with good prices and fast is a plus?
If you want to reliably TP to old grids, set your dns name to all LOWER CASE in both the gird and the entry you add to the viewer. This has been haunting certain popular places for a long time. I think this can be fixed in Opensim code in 0.9.2, whenever that comes out.
Regions and Beacon

How can I add my region to the Opensim Beacon teleporter?

Opensim 0.9 : Textures in inventory with mesh upload
Something that worked in Opensim 0.8.x : if you select "Include textures" during a mesh upload, you get a copy of the uploaded textures in your inventory, under the name " Textures".

In Opensim 0.9.x, it's not the same. If you select the checkbox, textures are uploaded and assigned to the mesh in world, but you don't have the textures in your inventory, so you can refer to them anymore.

The solution is to add an undocumented setting in OpenSim.ini :

MeshModelAllowTextureToInventory = true

The setting will be documented in next release, in reply to the opened issue:
Some LSL Help
Hello everyone, looking for some scripting help. At one time HyperGrid Business had an article about using Google sheets as a database but since they've changed how sheets are handled, it's broken the code. Anyone know how to do this? It's the only method I can think of to make my project cross-hypergrid.
