The Pride Parade





Today was the Pride Parade in London City, ending Pride 2016.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has attended Pride through June and thank you to the cast and crew of all the shows.  Thank you for making this such a success.   The parade was the usual fiasco it is every year, so enjoy this horribly hurried and rough cut video of Parade.

European Union Referendum Day in UK




Whether you choose to leave, or remain; today is the day you cast your vote.   Unlike General Elections where you can boot out the offending party in favour of a different one, this is a once in a lifetime vote as to whether or not Britain should leave the EU or remain in it.  We will not be asked again, so choose wisely!

Singularity Viewer 1.8.7 (6861) - Full Release





It's been a while since the last full release of the popular Singularity Viewer, with many of its users opting into the Alpha path to receive updates.

The wait is now over with a full main release: Singularity version 1.8.7 (6861) Dated 16th June 2016, is now available to download from http://www.singularityviewer.org/

For those wishing to remain on the Alpha path and receive this current version and the more frequent updates (although some will of course be better than others), see the Alpha download page and download the most recent version.
You need to use this to preserve the current directory structure of the Alpha paths if you intend to remain using Alpha releases. http://alpha.singularityviewer.org/alpha/

As with all viewer upgrades, its always best to uninstall the old viewer first.  Your settings will be preserved.

Here is a reminder of some of our favourite additional settings that can be used to customize Singlarity viewer:

CTL+P > System > Security  autoteleport when region is restarting (drop LM in here)

Debug:
LiruShowTransactionThreshold = 2 Do not pop up a notification box for amounts less than this value.
UISndRestart = UUID of sound to play on restart (replaces Torley Linden)
AlchemyRegionRestartShake = true  Shake the screen when region restart is imminent
ShortDateFormat  for European format:     %Y-%m-%d   change to   %d/%m/%Y for Europe
LiruLegacyLandmarks = true/false  Landmark saved with position e.g. (22, 258, 23)
LiruSensibleARC = False   Show new style render Weights (FS style) not Costs
ShowSimChannel = True    Shows the Server name on About land top bar next to region name
LiruMapShowAvCount = True    Map shows amount of avatars next to region name
AvatarNameColour = override the default name colours, you can still colour friends in vanity
LiruShowLastNameResident =  Turn on or off  last names ending in 'Resident' (on CTL+P too)
LiruNewARCLimit = Change threshold colour on Av Weight (suggest 120k value for >230kARC)
FontScreenDPI= (default is 96.0) try 104.0 for slightly bigger lettering
RadarNameSystem=3  Show Legacy (display)
FriendNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
GroupMembersNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
IMNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)

Sadly,  no Mac version currently available.  A note from the Singularity team:
Unfortunately, we are left without a Mac dev and we would welcome applications. If anyone at all knows a mac user that knows how to program in C++, then PLEASE ask them if they would like to help us out so we can start offering an up-to-date singu for Mac.
