  1. Both parties WANT American elections to be fraudulent. Consider that list you have expressed along with a mile-long list of similar reasons. Anyone who was actually concerned about election integrity would be calling for things like international monitors, paper ballots, vote-counting transparency, UN-ADJUSTED exit polling, etc. In other words, they'd be calling for the same things the US calls the gold standards for election integrity all across the globe. But I never hear cries to bolster election integrity -- just to overturn the results of whatever the last election was because one sid
  2. Wow, awesome tip Arielle. Thanks. Sure enough, going into debug and setting this to TRUE gave me another ~10FPS or a whopping 25% FPS bump.
  3. Let's take this one at a time. Is it porn? Um... not by any normal definition I can think of. I suppose an incredibly repressed person might think of all sex as porn but.... ewwwwww. Is it cheating? I think that's a poor question. Who cares if it is "cheating" or not? That's just a buzz word specifically intended to obscure the facts of the situation with a big red flag. Here's some questions I think are more relevant: Does your wife want you to do this? If not, then whether or not it was cheating before, it certainly is if you do it AFTER knowing that and you hide it
  4. Plenty of legitimate uses. I scripted up an online detector so that my various electronic devices would buzz me when my girlfriend logged on. It was a convenience and she knew about it. Later, I took her off the detector list because I made a little gizmo for her that let her message me (to my RL devices) directly if she chose. Of course people have non-sketchy reasons for wanting to know when someone else is online.
  5. I guess I don't really separate SecondLife from Real Life that way. SecondLife, like everything else we do and experience, happens in the real world. One way to look at it is that SecondLife is akin to a telephone call... a bit of technology inserted between two people just like the telephony system. In that context, SecondLife relationships are very different than Real Life ones but only because of the changing landscape wherein they happen. For instance, if I had a close female friend with whom I'd been talking for the last 20 years on the phone but she happened to live far away, I woul
  6. Insofar as I was able, my avatar is me. There were issues with the Gianni body because even at 0 settings, it's WAY too muscular. Heck, at 0 settings, it still looks like a professional body builder. But ignoring the shape of the body, the hair, beard, and wardrobe are all pretty similar. Heh, in the case of the hair and beard, I liked them so much in SL that I grew the beard then went to a high-end barber to get the haircut and beard shaping of my avatar. I took some liberties with the face and gave myself a nose job. My steady dance partner does the same thing. Her avatar is basi
  7. Heh, I readily admit I have no idea how to get an unprocessed, usable photo out of firestorm. I can handle everything else I need in-game. But the gamma is invariably WAY too dark. the actual in-world scene is quite a bit brighter than the captured photo. This is so common that I have a typical adjustment layer I pop on... exposure: +0.5, Gamma: 1.2.
  8. OK, I must be having some sort of brain freeze here but I've found ways to make it play a variety of sounds... but all in-world. what's the function to make a simple client-side beep?
  9. Now that this project is done, I wouldn't mind putting a free mesh body on my alt. But it doesn't appear the LucyBody is available anymore. Do you have a place to get it? If not, anyone got any other suggestions?
  10. No, what I meant was that I'd like mesh that doesn't break down with LOD issues. One major body creator clearly failed totally with LOD and it shows every time someone wearing it appears. I'd like any mesh I get her to be "solid" as opposed to collapsing into triangles at a distance.
  11. I’ll have to ask, oddly it didn’t show up in my list my what is she wearing hud. I don’t think it’s made any more... not sure the maker even exists.
  12. I'd really like to thank you all again. I managed to pickup the Lara body and a quick pass through the sliders tells me it'll be able to match her slim-hipped, B-cup figure nicely. Insofar as the "mesh wars", there isn't really any aesthetic issue here. The only aesthetic judgement is hers and the only acceptable answer is "the same as she looks now". Whatever body can do that with the best selection of TOP quality clothing is the winner. What I like... you like... or someone else likes isn't really a part of the equation. The real problem is going to be the face, not the body.
  13. Thank you all for the help. If Maitreya is still in business that’s where I’ll go largely due to brands like erratic. insofar as “solid mesh” next time I’m at Muddy’s I’ll just find out which major body maker has failed so utterly with their LOD and avoid that one. Regarding shape, my contribution to this is to try to use the Freya head and some body to exactly duplicate her existing mesh head and classic body. So I will know right away if a given body works or not. it sounds like my picks, in order of fashion availability (which is the entire purpose of this upgrade any
  14. Hello everyone. I'm trying to setup a friend's avatar and I picked up the free catwa head and I went to get a Lara body to go with it and... Maitreya is closed? I went to the sim and it appears abandoned. Am I missing something? If not and Maitreya is really out of business, then what I need is a recommendation on bodies. The primary consideration here is access to a wide variety of clothing. As secondary considerations... BOM capable... ideally with the onion skin layers detachable and without using any sort of relay hud. Solid mesh... I don't know which female body it
  15. Not a snob but perhaps a bit unknowledgeable. The quality of someone's look doesn't have much or anything to do with whether they use a mesh body. It has a lot more to do with their design skills as they put together the avatar. Every single day I see hundreds of full mesh avatars that look hideous. It's more rare, but I find plenty of classic avatars looking very well put together. Insofar as your preferences for mesh avatars, everyone's entitled to their preferences.
