Icky, ugly, YouTube compression! :( :( :( Anybody knows a better video hosting thingie with embed functionality?
For those who need a recap on how to login to OpenSim Ruth: if you want to try Ruth out for yourself, and test the OpenSim, Testa User to Testz User are available for your exploration pleasures. This is how you do it:
If you have a shortcut to the Second Life client on your desktop, copy it and name it ‘Second Life OpenSim Ruth’. If not, create one.
Right click it and look at it it’s properties. Normally under ‘Target’ it says: “C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe” -set SystemLanguage en-us. Just add -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/ to the end of it, so you get “C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe” -set SystemLanguage en-us -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/.
Use that shortcut to open the Second Life client. You should automatically connect to Ruth. As user name you can choose from Testa User up to Testz User, and the pass for all is ‘test’.
And the second option, which is my prefered one:
Go to ‘Start’ and then choose ‘Run’.
Type cd c:\program files\secondlife\ (or whatever path your SL client is located).
Type secondlife.exe -loginuri http://ruth.petitbe.be:9000/ .
See the Second Life client starting up and login with Testa to Testz User and password ‘test’ or bug Dalien (gently!) to get a private, personalised account.
If you see any Vint Falken running around, you can assume safely that’s me, so say ‘hi’. ;)
