Shorah and Slainte,
On Saturday 03/17, the D'ni Musicological Research hood proudly presents a full night of music with 2 broadcasts
At 1600 Hrs. KI time (7pm eastern US), I will broadcast Celtic Music from my site:
Then at 1800 Hrs. KI time, Christine will take over the broadcast from ustream.tv/channel/live-in-the-dmr
Please join us in the DMR or listen at the sites. All are welcome!
After long hours spent translating, I have finally managed to produce the second issue of The Cavern Post - in French!
Almost every part has been translated, with only the crossword puzzle still in English due to obvious constraints.
So have fun, to all you Uru francophones out there, with the first French issue of "The Cavern Post" (and hopefully not the last)!
Cyan Worlds, Inc., together with Ubisoft, has announced that Myst V: End of Ages will be made available for download on the Steam game-distribution platform starting this Friday! And if Steam doesn't get your blood boiling for this, then maybe some Good Old Games will: Cyan also stated that GOG.com will be distributing the game soon after as well. No price has been mentioned yet.
So if you haven't played the final entry in the Myst series (although, hopefully, maybe the end can never truly be written), now's the time!
In the past, I have heard that players have formed objects to attract the Bahro or other characters into the cavern. So I was thinking: what if players formed the Cyan logo and hummed the tune? Do you think a Cyan employee would enter the cavern? Naturally, they're busy, so this may amount to nothing but getting players in the cavern, but I think it would be a fun thing to try.
The event will take place Friday, March 16 at 6:00 PM EST in the Summoner's Hood.(this should be 3:00 PM for Cyan) As someone suggested, we will " ... put gold-clothed people in the fountain and blue-clothed people around it to form a C.".
There will be a stream and an optional Mumble chat where people can actually hum the tune. This will be hosted at the Guild Of Writers(guildofwriters.org). Mumble is very easy to install and set up, it can be found here. It is open source software and free to download. Remember, use of Mumble is optional, but use of the MOULa client for voice chat is not allowed.
Being that the event is taking place while Cyan is at work, that means people in their timezone will be at work too, so it's up to us in the east to make the event work and get Cyan to come. If you can't make it, don't worry; I will post a full chat log.
I made a thread where people can write what they want to ask Cyan and I will ask your question to any Cyan employees that enter the cavern. That thread can be found here.
There will be virtual pizza! And don't worry, if you can't hold a tune, neither can I!
Lyrositor has started offering a didactic Q&A event on setting up an Open Source shard. Each session will cover all the processes involved to get you up and running with your own personal shard, starting with basic and general information for the first sessions and then moving on to tackle more technical issues. Chatlogs will be made available each time here.
As a result of the success of his first Q&A last Saturday, Lyrositor has announced that he will be repeating the event every week, time-permitting. Follow the link below to be updated accordingly. For time schedule flexibility, each Q&A will take place on Saturday on one of two times: either 11:00 GMT-5 or 21:00 GMT-5. Times will be provided in KI Time once the month of March is over, due to differences in DST time changes in Europe, America, and URU. If you're unsure about the time of the event, this is the correct timezone's time. To convert from your time to GMT-5 time, you can also check this link.
Requirements for attendance: basic technical skills, understanding of servers, perseverance; for actually setting up the server, you will need an internet-connected machine running a *nix Operating System (consult chat logs or attend event for information). WARNING: experience with an Untìl Uru shard could help you, but the process is radically different. Read more
If all goes well, the Guild of New Greeters will be having their next meeting on Friday, March 16th, at 3:30 PM EST, otherwise known as 12:30 KI time.
They will be meeting exclusively in their IRC chat room (Alternate Link). If you want to use an IRC application instead, connect to the server "irc.mibbit.net" and enter the room #newgreeters to join.
Everyone in the community is invited to attend this meeting.
Community member MYSTRIVEN has announced that he has managed to produce some exact replicas of the Moiety Daggers from Riven, with the consent of Cyan Worlds! Using 3D Models and laser cutting, he has managed to manufacture 40 copies of these iconic objects from Riven.
The daggers are designed through the use of software, unlike Museum Replicas' daggers, which use a mold, and are hand-painted to match the texture of the Moiety daggers. The full creation process is described in detail in this forum thread, so if you happen to have professional industrial design software, a laser cutting facility, painting and texturing skills you can produce the same result yourself!
Cyan has allowed the production of these daggers, so in effect all legal aspects are covered by the following disclaimer:
"The Riven Dagger is a trademark of Cyan Worlds. Used with permission."
