ANZAC

Today in my part of the world, it is ANZAC Day. Every year this falls on the same day, 25th April.

This Day of Remembrance is held by Australians and New Zealanders alike, and as an Australian living in New Zealand, I cannot help but feel blessed to be to be a part of our world and part of two cultures united by history.

This Day commemmorates those members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought so long ago and so far from home at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. In more recent years, it also honours service men and women who died and served for their country. This is a rare instance of two sovereign countries not only sharing the same remembrance day, but making reference to both countries in its name.

This day holds great significance in both countries, and is marked historically as the ‘coming of age’ of both Australia and New Zealand all those years ago. Everywhere around the world where Australians or New Zealanders gather, you will find a commemmoration held today. Indeed, many villages and towns across Europe also remember our ANZACS for the selfless service during 2 World Wars.

At the Kemal Atatürk Memorial, ANZAC Parade, Canberra you will find this inscription, written by Kemnal Atatürk, the first President of modern Turkey in 1934, as tribute to the ANZACs killed at Gallipoli:

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side now here in this country of ours… you, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, They have become our sons as well.”

Rescale

If you build, create, purchase or wear anything that contains scripts, you need the Rescale, a single-script tool for customizing no-modify attachments and other objects through menus.

Why one script?
Because of the new scripting tools in simulator 1.38, there is now a DRASTIC REDUCTION IN RESIZE TIME!
The entire goal of Rescale is to cut down on the amount of scripts that must be worn per attachment, thus preventing lag.
For very primmy objects, for example more than 128 prims, the simple method would be to keep a script in each prim.
This means 128 or more scripts just to resize such an object, which means 2MB or more of simulator memory will be in use (A LOT for one object).
Having several such objects worn or rezzed piles on yet more memory usage.
Not only does this degrade sim performance in general, it is particularly destructive during teleports.
Teleports must transfer each script’s state to another sim, and transferring all those scripts causes a large delay in some cases.
This delay is extremely noticeable, and often painfully so.
Avatars wearing hundreds of scripts can cause a sim to hang for even as much as 10 seconds when they teleport in or out of the sim.
To avoid all of this, Rescale can replace hundreds of resize scripts by having one per whole object rather than one per prim.
In other words, there is now absolutely no reason to accept anything but the best of both worlds.
The solution is finally here — no sim lag, and no minutes-long waits for resizes.

Features
Resize a whole object
Resize a single prim on all axes at once, or in a single dimension
Move individual prims
Restore the whole object to its original state
Restore individual prims to their original state
Coordinate multiple, separate objects to resize or restore all prims simultaneously
One script
Highly reliable
Extremely sim-friendly
Free support and updates for life
