  1. I can provide you with free land. I have 2 adjacent sims. Come to Cookie and look around there and on Thinkerers Quest to the south. Keep in mind that a virtual classroom can be in the air at an altitude high enough to be practically inaccessible without a landmark. If you want to talk to me, I am thinkerer.melville I can help you in some building and other aspects of SL. I have a blog: Virtual Outworlding, with general information about virtual worlds and their use in education. I will not charge for educational land.
  2. Since you are filling out a 1099, you are probably paying US taxes. Even if you activity is regarded as a Hobby, you can deduct as expense up to the amount you made. The computer is a capital asset, though, so you must spread the deduction over the life of the computer. I used to be in business. At that time, the life of a computer was 5 years for tax purposes. There were schedules you could use to spread out the deduction. You need to study the IRS rules or get advice from a tax accountant.
  3. full sim island for sale, priced to sell at $100; tier due 11/18 The island is cleared an leveled. It has no permanent contents on it. Enter reply here -- I should get the email on it.
  4. If you are using the standard sl viewer, try Firestorm. You can get it here: http://www.firestormviewer.org/ If it still does not work, you can find support help on that page. That help is better than you will get from Linden Lab.
  5. This might be caused by a failing router. The router can work fine for your browser and still fail for SL. See if you can borrow another router or connect your computer directly to the modem. Before making that direct connection, be sure your computer's firewall is on.
  6. Many people do building an other solo work in OpenSim, using Sim-On a Stick or low cost grids. http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/2013/11/2013-help-opensim-prmer-hypergrid.html Firestorm supports export and import http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/2014/01/2014-help-opensim-intergrid-transport.html
  7. Check your bandwidth Google on bandwidth, pick a site near you Make a few tests at times that matter to you Complain to your service provider if you are not getting what you pay for Close all programs that you don't need while you are in world. Use wired connection rather than Wi-Fi
  8. I don't have good info on capture tools for the MAC, as all my work is on the PC, If you get good info about capture on the PC, I hope you will post it here so I can update the article. BTW, there are Facebook and Google communities on machinima and video production in virtual worlds.
  9. See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machinima_(filmmaking)
  10. You can do that in Heterocera, on the road that loops around the atoll. You can probably do it on any road on any continent.
  11. Thanks very much. I will review these and probably embed them on my blog unless you tell me that I should not.
  12. I turned off the automatic update. When I notice there is a new vierwer available, I download it and keep the file till I am ready to restart my PC. I never try to install the new viewer except immediately after a system reboot. I have never had an install problem with that practice.
  13. For help from Firestorm, go to http://www.firestormviewer.org/support/ TKR
