Dear Henry: What is wrong?

Every two weeks Henry cleans out the VIE MSL mailbox and takes some time to answer a question from a needy, pathetic or simply highest paying reader of this blog.

Sometimes harsh, hardly ever subtle, mostly innocent but always helpful (or at least trying to be). If you have a delicate issue you need professional help with – just go out and get some… if you can’t afford it and nobody else wants to help you could always consider e-mailing Henry.

 

Dear Henry,

Last week I spend a nice evening inworld with my Second Life registrered partner. She and I have been together for 3 years now. At some point my SL client crashed… (unfortenately right before things would have gotten really nice if you know what I mean). When I tried to login again I got this message “Unable to connect to the network. despite our best efforts, something unexpected went wrong. Please check secondlife.com / status to see if there is a problem with the service knows.”

About half an hour later I tried again and the problem seems to have been solved. I slowly rezzed in our house  and before I could even see what was going on I heard a woman (my woman!) and a male heavily breathing and moaning.

When I was finally rezzed I saw her and some man I have never seen before naked in our bedroom. They clearly felt uncomfortable with me rezzing in and they quickly explained to me they were only fitting clothes and outfits for a fashion show next week. Now that might actually be true, she is a succesfull model in SL but I’m not sure how that would explain the moaning I hear. They insist that must have been the result of the music streaming badly while everything was still rezzing.

I need some advice here, what to do?

with kind regards,

Mr. Crashed and Cheated on

 

Dear Crashed,

I think it’s not worth worrying about. That “Unable to connect…” error is actually really very common occuring if you use the Linden Labs viewer. From the info you provide in itself it is hard to say what exactly is wrong. It may be a DNS problem (which could be solved using Google’s DNS) or your connection may be having a intermitant problem.

Check the SL forums for suggestions on what may be the problem with your connection and of course check the grid status (as the errormessage suggests). If you change to Google’s DNS, be sure you keep one of your ISP’s DNS servers in the list.

with kind regards,

Henry
