ha! i officially broke my hermit-who-lives-under-a-prim-on-a-private-grid lifestyle today!
i had a little time to kill today while waiting to go to lunch so i thought i would finally try out Kitely. i created a “world” and loved how fast and easy it was to get into it. i decided to start with blank land and it only took about 30 seconds for it to be created. i then installed the Kitely one-click enter world dealio which is a very convenient way to basically launch your viewer from your account page on Kitely.com (i am sure i am not being as precise with my description as Ilan would be, but you get my drift) =)
i then clicked to enter my world, Imprudence launched and i did not have to enter any creds, it simply put me on my new world (region). i was very, very impressed! i am used to running my own server and doing lots of stuff related to OpenSim so it was wonderful to have this incredibly simple process to get in-world. note to Prok (who hates my guts and thinks of me as an idiot) who commented on Maria’s blog wondering how easy it is to get into Kitely (seems you must be a big dope if you are too scared to check it out yourself) – it is SOOO EASY! i applaud Ilan and Oren for doing the most incredible job of setting up this smooth flow. compared to getting a sim in Second Life, the Kitely process is certainly 10 times easier and it is instant (and painless since it’s pretty much free to do one)
Kitely is 10 times easier than SL for getting your own region?
yes, and i know since i bought 19 sims from Linden Lab – the Kitely experience is really that much simpler and far, far faster. i can’t say enough positive things to express how impressed i am at their interface and the user experience
Ilan and Oren, you guys are fantastic and have thought out and executed Kitely is a phenomenal manner
after landing on my brand new region (they have a region uploader that is very easy to use, as well as a way to export your OAR just as easily – one-click!), i decided to give their performance a test and imported my Pink Galaxy Destroyer 3000 which is 638 prims. it did take a while to import it and i will do a timed test later (probably tomorrow’s post) but while it was importing, Ilan popped in to say hello!
we chatted for about 10 minutes about all sorts of geeky stuff and some awesome future things that Kitely will be implementing. it was very gracious of Ilan to visit with me (i can ramble in text chat like no one’s business! like 100 words per minute with lots of typos – i was really wound up Ilan, sorry!) =p
Kitely has some great plans for the future and i am very excited for them. i’ll be in there more often building myself a home – Kitely has blown away and exceeded my expectations =)
