SSB (Server-side Baking (or Appearance)rolls to the entire grid
today (Tuesday). If you are not using a properly equipped viewer avatars will not be seen properly. Jessica Lyon has a good post at the Firestorm Blog which applies to all viewers. There has been a long run-up to this new feature. No one can say they were not warned! LL and many private blogs have been talking about this for many months! This is a major improvement to the avatar rez process, a major improvement!
I am sure there will be wackadoodles who will be crying “the sky is falling” and the end of Second Life. Ignore them.
Those accessing SL with very old equipment will have the most problems, some will find they can not access the grid at all. My best advice to them is to try various Third Party Viewers in the hopes of finding one that works. Text viewers will of course get you on line but with limited or no graphics. You knew that sooner or later all computers become obsolete.
Bugs will appear in one part of a working program when another ‘unrelated’ part is modified. Murphyism
