On Sunday 21st April 2013 the I.H.P. will arrange a Party and Celebrate the opening of the new International Hood! As it happens, this Day coincides with the D'ni New Year and the day after is the International Mother Earth Day. A sort of lucky coincidence for all!
The event starts Sunday morning at 06:00 and continues all day and late into the night around 24:00. We will have some kind of "Official Opening Cremony" at 12:00 noon in the Hood. Please join us for that! We'll also have some games, quizes, etc., during the event, besides all Streamed Music of course! Here's a full copy of the schedule, (with all times are notated in KI-time).:

OpenUru.org and its contributors have put out the latest update to the Minkata shard (Minkata.77). It comprises many bug fixes and other needed changes which, once properly tested, will be added to Cyan Worlds' MOULa shard in short order.
Some of the fixes (and their contributors) this upgrade include:
- Fixed the issue that quick mouse moves while walking/looking by mouse could get the cursor out of the window and break the continuous turning (Hoikas)
- Fix remote code execution through Python.Cheat and Python.RunFile (Boq)
In addition, the team has a request for those using the shard:
Code that has been changed on Minkata but not yet incorporated into MOULa is still present in this release (i.e. Physics fixes, Quab fixes, and removal of proprietary video player code). This is a final iteration of testing this large update to MOULa before Cyan picks up the changes. It is essential that we uncover any issues with the code before the handoff to avoid having Cyan spend time reverting MOULa back. In that situation we would be wasting some of the Cavcon fund due to having to back out (and resubmit) the changes
Make sure that moving your computer's mouse cursor into and out of the client window now behaves like any normal Windows program (your cursor should no longer be held captive by the game client)
Unless you forewarn me, don't try to do anything to confirm or exercise the exploit bug. I'll work with the developers to confirm this fix.
Haven't signed up for Minkata yet? Head to this link and follow the instructions for creating an account and installing the shard. Good luck to everyone testing the fixes!
A rather fiesty crowd at this month's AGM. What seemed like a quick meeting soon grew into a full-sized one..right before the crowd's eyes! Here are the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for those that missed it.
DTC came to the stage first to mention that HN has been put on hold for the time being for a new project! This will be similar to Spoken Word Night conducted by vid back years ago, specifically 25 and 50. More details, such as date and time, will be released soon, so check the Heritage Night site for more info.
Guild of Messengers
Thinking the meeting would be short, the GoMe went next, introducing to everyone the latest Messenger to join the Guild: Samoth! The Guild also updated everyone on the progress of URU2U's next episode, which is coming along nicely and will hopefully be released before the next AGM. There were also some non-GoMe related announcements: Samoth mentioned the Relto of Ainia, Max talked about the upcoming International Hood, and Lyrositor updated everyone on the status of Lyrobot.

EDIT: April Fool's! Did we get you?
For many years, the Guild of Messengers and the Guild of Writers have existed as distinct entities in the Uru community. Collaboration and communication have always been the key words to describe our relationship, itself based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. After much thinking and planning, we have decided to take this one step further: we are proud to announce that both guilds are fusing together to form the Guild of Messengers and Writers!
We'll be providing more information about the GoMaW at the AGM, but here are the essential points you need to know right now. Read more
The DMR will be hosting a live interview with Jack Wall, music composer for Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation on March 16th at 18:00 KI Time! The DMR is accepting questions from explorers, some of which will be selected for the interview. If you have something you've always wanted to ask him, post quickly in this thread!
This marks the second time the DMR has managed to host such an interview, having already talked to Robyn Miller a few weeks ago (we are preparing a transcript of said interview; stay tuned!). But the DMR isn't stopping here! They've already got an interview with Tim Larkin (music composer for Myst V: End of Ages and Uru: Ages Beyond Myst) set up for some time in April; we'll keep you updated. Keep watching this thread in the meantime for information as it becomes available.
