Blake Sea Cloud Challenge (Aditi)
As I was the first to report on July 21st, the Blake Sea regions have been cloned to the Aditi, the beta grid, and are running on AWS servers in the cloud (see: Blake Sea in the cloud on ADITI). At that time, region crossings for the regions were – to say the least – unstable.
Since then, those regions (some 46 in total) have been further updated (Monday, July 27th), and to help with gathering data on cloud-based region crossings, Simon Linden has defined the Blake Sea Challenge:
We just did some updates this morning (Monday July 27th) that fixes a bunch of the region connectivity issues. I just did a tour and didn’t hit any invisible walls.
Along those lines, I made a quick “Blake Sea Challenge” Go to secondlife://Aditi/secondlife/Morris/200/207/34 on the BETA aditi grid, and click on the red egg-shaped thing to try it out. It will give you the “Blake Sea Challenge” … wear it and touch, and it’ll get you going. Follow the instructions to sail / fly / motor around 46 regions without doubling back and see if you make it. Have fun and keep letting us know how it goes!

- There are renewed reports of delays to scripted object rezzing across many regions. see: BUG-228939 “on_rez action delayed for 2 to 3 seconds in many regions”.
