We are midway through 2017 with growing interest in IMA! Thank you to all those participating and to those joining us in our mission to help advance the virtual world technology we all love. We created the IMA Google calendar because it is easy for the general community to use and so working group leaders can add their meetings to the same calendar. If you need access as a working group leader, please send email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to get added.

Based on suggestions from the members, we have created a new mailing list that anyone can join. We hope this convenience will be helpful in keeping people in the loop outside of virtual worlds!

You can join the mailing list by visiting this page. If you have any difficulty, please let us know.

Over the past few weeks, you may have heard some of us talking about something called Open Project. This is the leading open source project management server available and as planned, we are using Open Project as the open source software that powers our Project Management Site. Some of the frequently asked questions we heard are: What is it for? How do we use it? Do I need to download anything? So let's address those here! 

 

We held another monthly meeting for the Advisory Board expanded to include the Director's Council. If you would like to join the council please send email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can get you on board! We will be changing the monthly meeting date and time based on feedback from those who have schedule conflicts.

 

Meanwhile, for the folks that missed the meeting, thanks to Marcus Llewellyn, we have yet another recording of our meetings on our YouTube channel. Google's transcription for closed captioning should catch up soon so the cc works. You can view it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iTSlCDr1XY

[11:27] Marcus.Llewellyn @grid.avacon.org:8002: koh-koo-ah

[11:29] Neovo Geesink: So was I but since the first versions could not coop with VAR regions I allso switched to Singu.

[11:33] Neovo Geesink: It runs pretty good for a DualCore 3.0Ghz, at 8G with a 150/15 Home Internet connection... I am plesantly supprised. :-)

[11:33] Steve Franklin: Yes I am too!

[11:33] 111shawn.resident @sanctuary.homelinux.org:8012: I gave it a go Mal, which is a no go atm. :)

[11:34] Marcus.Llewellyn @grid.avacon.org:8002: Freeswitch

[11:34] Neovo Geesink: It is a Dedicated computer on which no other processes are running. It is purely for OpenSim.

[11:34] Steve Franklin: ah very cool

[11:35] 111shawn.resident @sanctuary.homelinux.org:8012: any hypergriddable places running freeswitch?

[11:35] Steve Franklin: That is how I do it too but I am using VM's on a dedicated machine just for that

[11:35] Marcus.Llewellyn @grid.avacon.org:8002: Probably very few. It is a pain to setup.

[11:35] Neovo Geesink: :-)

[11:36] Steve Franklin: it is 8 core 32G Ram running Ubuntu VMs in esxi

[11:37] Neovo Geesink: :-)) Cool!

[11:37] Neovo Geesink: Moment, I have a RL issue.... AFK...

[11:37] 111shawn.resident @sanctuary.homelinux.org:8012: https://freeswitch.org I'm on it and will see if I can get AVirtualWorld to get it going. :)

The IMA server has a new grid on it! The first region on it was the IMA Outpost Alpha on Metropolis Grid. Now online is the IMA Halcyon Test Grid. This grid was formerly hosted by Myron Curtis of A Dimension Beyond, Inc. on a virtual server that was a part of the Virtual Worlds Grid server farm. Now it has it's new home on the IMA server. It is a fully functional, full powered grid with an excellent connection to the Internet. It is available for testing purposes to anyone who needs them. It is also updated regularly with the latest version of the Halcyon fork of OpenSim to keep up with the technology. Here is the info to get in and use the new test grid:
