After all the bitter cold weather most of the world has been having (even those that usually don't see such a thing), it seems most people took the time to head down to the cavern to hear the latest during this month's All Guilds Meeting! A good turnout and a more than a few useful pieces of information. You can read up on it with our raw and cleansed chatlogs...and the following summary:
I.H.P.X. (aka Kaaja) was first to the podium to talk about the upcoming D'ni O'lympics, as well as the International Hood's Holiday Open House event back in December. Details of the O'lympics are still forthcoming, but those organizing the events plan to start on February 15th with opening ceremonies and various other activities (stay tuned to the MOUL forums for more). As for the open house, they were able to gather many interesting recipes from various explorers. Those can be found here; others are encouraged to add to the list with your favorite dish!

Once again, the Guild of Writers and its affiliated programmers show they're always working behind the scenes to provide a better URU experience! The Guild has released version 19 of their shard, Gehn, with some nice under-the-hood fixes:
- Change /dance to loop the animation.
- Ensure the launcher actually installs the redistributables.
- Fix a few memory leaks in the client.
- Fix a lot of nasty memory leaks in the server.
- Fix HANDLE leaks in the launcher.
- Fix several potential crashes.
- Reduce memory usage caused by unnecessary string copying.
- Fixed leaky leeks.
The /dance loop in particular will make future parties much more fun. No more Ctrl+4 over and over!
If you'd like to try the shard, simply download the installer at this link. You don't even need Myst Online: URU Live Again installed (but it does speed up the process of installation).
Keep up the good work, brilliant programmers!
Today is Leeshan 8 in the D'ni Calendar. It marks the date of the Great Fall of the D'ni civilization. Like the turning of a book page to begin the next chapter, this darkest day in modern D'ni history.
Caused by the social revolt of D'ni citizens Veovis and A'Gaeris, who placed a deadly gas in the air vents of D'ni, which infected and later killed any D'ni who came into contact with it. This nearly brought about the extinction of the D'ni civilization, except for those found within a few uncontaminated ages. These two were also the source of several tremors which destroyed much of city, and the damage we see today not caused by the ravages of time.
It is a date that can only be remembered with sorrow.
The D'ni Musicological Research Hood is happy to announce that, for the European listeners and audience, there will now be a twice monthly production by AlanD and EdisonRex produced in the GMT time zone.
This will take place on the second and fourth Fridays at 13:00 KI time - beginning on Friday, November 8th. The content will at times be a reflection and interpretation of that weekends chosen theme or, alternately, will be independent of that altogether and will be music and a show of their own choosing.
AlanD and EdisonRex will produce the content and it will be broadcast on the DMR's Shoutcast server.
The following monthly schedule changes are in effect with the D'ni Musicological Research Hood beginning this Saturday:
