Diary: 25th April 2008

Building work in Anubia almost complete now.

Earlier crashes and missing textures were due to a failing router (a hardware problem on my part). The software itself has not yet produced any problems, so far.

Going to try to connect to OSGrid this weekend, then do some visitor load tests to see at what level the number of avatars starts to affect my sim performance (currently, with 4 of us in there there is no lag whatsoever, but I wonder what it will be like with 20, 30??)

If the current upload speed from my ISP is sufficient to serve 10 avatars, then I don't think I will consider upgrading to a home/business account with my ISP for the higher upload speeds offered.
