        • Q: What happened to the Friday event notices you were carrying twice a month?
        • A: They weren't drawing enough interest and alternative sources came online.  I am now running a short  form daily near the top of this blog. A more comprehensive collection is in  Selby's daily news collection.

              Problem discussion

              The function of llcceflib_host is to assist with web sourced content. It would be called for media on a prim (MOAP) or web-sourced profiles. The comments on the bug report suggest it may be called for other (unexplained) reasons.  The comments also indicate that the problem occurs for some people and not for others and that it is not specific to an operating systes

              I am running Firestorm 4.7.7 (48706) Mar  5 2016 00:13:45 (Firestorm-Releasex64) with OpenSimulator support.  Operating system: Windows 10.  I do not find a slowing problem even when I am working around a lot of media posters. I do see a modest accumulation of llcceflib_host processes after I close the viewer, though not enough to cause slowing.

              Suggestions for problem management

              1.  Restart Windows 10 at least once a day.  Persistent processes will accumulate If you just put the system in sleep mode. This suggestion is good advice whether you are having this particular problem or not.   
              -
              2. Turn off "Allow media to autoplay"  and "Allow inworld scripts to play media."  These are in Preferences, Sound & Media, Media tab.
              -
              I found that the settings in suggested in 2. reduced, but did not eliminate, the accumulation of  llcceflib_host processes.  Since I cannot replicate the slowing problem on my machine, that is the best I can do to test the suggestion.
