A proposal: the Emergency Grid Broadcast System

July 3rd, 2010 by Marianne McCann

Earlier today was yet another incidence of login and asset issues. When I’m inworld, a box in my workshop will alert me to any posts on http://status.secondlifegrid.net/ , which gives me a heads up. Unfortunately, not everyone has such a device or a place to put it.

But it led me to think: if this device could parse a simple RSS feed of the grid status, surely the viewer with all its “web link” features, http-in, and so on could handle this?

This led me to make my second ever feature suggestion (my first, on parcel-level build rights, sits mostly forgotten): the Emergency Grid Broadcast System.

Essentially a glorified RSS feed reader built into the browser, this would prove a method to get people inworld to see when when big issues are at hand.

Anyway, my write up about it all is available on the JIRA at https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-20081. I think I have all my bases covered, all my “T”s dotted an “I”s crossed, but would love feedback. Please read, vote, and/or comment, and also please feel free to tell others who might be interested.
