Above or below ground, for a while at least...

In the past I've mentioned that nowadays with alpha-based shoes I seem to hover above the ground or floor--and people have helpfully pointed me at the "avatar offset" knob that many third-party viewers provide to correct that and other similar issues, especially for tiny/giant avatars.

Nalates Urriah writes about how SSA (server-side avatar baking) will stop that from working. The new Firestorm doesn't have that knob--because it won't work on sims with server-side baking.

If these issues concern you, please do read Ms. Urriah's blog post, follow the JIRA entries she mentions, and, if you have the time, attend the Server Beta Meeting she mentions.
