  1. You don't know this one, but you do, because it's my alt. (Should say I am also Marigold Devin.) And up to now this alt is still apparently an Advisor, even though I hadn't logged in with it since about 2012! Photo for posterity. I dare say, next time I log in with it, the Advisor tag will have been changed. How low those post counts are. I do actually remember the reason I started using Echo Hermit to post for me; it was because in those old forums, some mardy arse grumbled about people posting just to get post counts, and I wanted to prove them wrong. I just en
  2. If you were wearing the same skin and shape that you would usually wear when you noticed this large dent in the collar bone and chest area, I would hazard a guess that it was something that was always there, but for some reason the lighting in relation to where your avatar was facing, showed this 'flaw' up more. We are meant to have some curves and dents and lines, as the natural body, human or beast, does have in real life. However, you could show us what exactly you mean by uploading a photograph and adding it to your post (see the little tree icon at the top of your post when you click on

    I have absolutely no clue how Kindle's work.
  4. And that's what I've learned today. I was still composing my post when yours slipped in front. I am sorry I seem to be tailgating you somewhat today. Not intended.
  5. Welcome to Second Life Answers, littlehermione. I'm not suggesting the "tech" who you had in doesn't know what they're doing, but it sounds like he's done to your computer what a kitten would do with a ball of wool. Edited, because Karen's answer makes way more sense than mine, and the OP certainly doesn't need the confusion that my post may have unintentionally added.

  7. Blimey, Neal, hate women do you? The last thing any of us needs is a Klingon :matte-motes-wink-tongue: Maybe you need to take him to a circus sim and hope they take him travelling with them when they move on.
  8. Welcome to Second Life Answers, It means you can still carry on using Phoenix if that's the viewer you prefer, but over time it may not work, and there will be no direct support available from the Phoenix/Firestorm developers. There is a very full explanation of what will happen, by Jessica Lyon, developer of Phoenix on youtube. Here is the link.

Milk monitors and class systems, you guys sound like you come from a fairytale! Lol. I don't know about Echo, but I like to reminisce sometimes It's definitely great to be able to look back at simpler times, and realise that life with all it's current array of time-saving gadgets and gizmos has actually got a lot more noisy, stressful and complicated.

For sixpence (six old d pennies, you will remember, Phil), you could have a custard cream biscuit with your milk, or if your parents weren't so well off you could pay just two old pennies and have a rich tea biscuit with your milk, or the very poor kids (or parents who actually fed their kids breakfast and knew biscuits weren't that nutritious) got just the milk. Good grief! 6d for a custard cream? That's a lot of money for just one biscuit. I could buy a cornish pastie for th

There is one word on the list that I've wondered about for ~45 years - jigger. When I was in the army, two friends had a laugh about "legging a jigger" but they wouldn't explain what it meant. At least I know what 'jigger' means now. Maybe the phrase meant running along a jigger. Dennis Tanner, what a coup that was. I'm no sure exactly how long he's been back, but long enough to become very close to,

If it isn't too dry. Most restaurants don't know how to do it properly, or they leave it to bake too long. It isn't my favorite anyway. I'm not fond of overly 'rich' or 'sweet' things. Lately I'm more into savories I guess. I feel like that about most flapjack. I like it to be slightly chewy. I love sweet stuff, but I balance it out with plenty of fresh fruit and
  13. Please check your graphics card drivers are up to date. Also ensure you are on a hard wired connection wherever possible. The freezing may be indicative of an interruption in your internet service, so do a ping test. Carry out some basic computer maintenance also; remove any surplus programs or files, do a disk cleanup and defragment.

Please stop this trend wherever you can, for the sake of all humanity. /hyperbole My grandmother talked about putting a little water with condensed milk (the government gave out the tins) and putting it on bread for a treat. It was like icing, she said. And a lot in her family came out with diabetes, later on... Another po' folk treat is bread pudding. Stale bread, raisins and what have you.

  15. Welcome to Second Life Answers, Siennalove2hug Are you sure your friend list out of world (on your dashboard?) is missing? The people who are logged into Second Life will usually show up emboldened at the top of your friend list. Have you tried scrolling down to see if your friend's name is further down the list? Also, if your friend is using a Display Name, they may appear in a different order within the friend list than they do under their Account Name.

But since you brought it up, I will say that Vista never gave me problems......I can't say the same for XP though (for me, XP was a degrade from Win ME when I first "upgraded" (SP 1 fixed it for me though and I loved it after that). The only reason I mentioned Vista is because Vista was the first MS operating system that had the "Aero Glass" features........huge resource hog that ruined any performance increase ove

I never have milk on its own (with ice cubes woulkd be pretty much the same). I don't like it on its own. When I was at school every pupil got 1/3 pint bottle of milk during the morning break. I never had any because I didn't like it. Strangely (or no

And various forms of milk. Don't forget that I thought milkproducts summerize that pretty well. I can't really join the topic...but it reminds me of the yoghurt I still have somewhere in the fridge. I'll go and check if I can still eat that. I believe, as long as they are stored in a refrigerator, yogurts will keep well after their use-by date.

Although I am born and bred in Yorkshire, and Scouse folk, Liverpool, Manchester is a whole other county (with whom we did have a civil war a long, long time ago apparently), my mother was from Manchester, and as a UK northerner, I understand much of what is in the list you linked to.

Remembering how we had a little funeral for a baby bird that had fallen (or been tossed out) of its nest when I was about five years old. Teacher helped us dig a hole, we made a little lollypop stick grave marker for it. We sang All Things Bright and Beautiful and said a little prayer for it's poor little soul. Few days later, thing had been dug up, probably by a cat (or the garden-proud caretaker). We were soooo sad.
