  1. Thanks for taking the time to do this write-up Billy -- amazing quality of writing as usual on your blog -- I'd expect no less! So TMP is trying to rise from the dead, eh?. After years of arrogant, supercilious, downright abusive customer service from TMP, my inclination is to try to beat this one back into the grave with a wooden stake. Anyone gives them more of their Lindens is like someone going back to an ex who beats and steals from them.
  2. I gave up on TMP last year and moved onto another supplier. Their ability to look after customers proved to be --- TMP.
  3. I remember a few years ago they froze editing on the wiki (I forget the reason why.) So I stopped bothering to go there to record stuff. I just went today, found a script whose help needed a bit more added to it, but found that editing is still unavailable to us. I checked reason changes, https://wiki.secondlife.com/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&days=30&from=&limit=500 and all I'm seeing is blank user pages being created and some edits by Lindens. Just want to confirm that it's still frozen after these several years.
  4. I have two physical drives in my desktop. C and D, they are actually separate physical drives. Windows and programmes are installed on C. D is for data. Someone has suggested that if I installed Firestorm on drive D, the non-system disk, that this problem would go away. Any idea if this is so? This constant loss of password is a real pain in the butt for me as I need many alts for my biz / work in SL. I understand the reasoning from reading above but that doesn't mean I have to like it . I have a million other pieces of software I use on a daily basis, and this is the only one that loses all passwords when a Windows update occurs. Heck, my Chrome browser remembers and retains all my SL passwords for the secondlife.com site, which have even travelled with me cached in the browser to a new computer when I've upgraded to new computers.
  5. Inworld vendors tied to MP listings so we wouldn't have to maintain a separate inworld vending system, and repeat all the work we have already done on MP, which eats up days and days of your life that you'll never get back. Ability to upload multiple images at once. Ability to set default profit sharing so wouldn't have to redo it every single time for every single listing (with ability to change it as needed for the odd separate listing.) Ability to have more than one marketplace storefront per avatar. Ability to have LM for inworld store stored in one central place, say your store profile, -- so that as you move store in world, you don't have to give up a week of your life and update the SLurl on 3,000 items. (which of course you never do, so 5 years later online customers are using MP SLurls to try to TP to sims that no longer exist.) Customer being able to get redeliveries for copy items.

  7. Oh really, wow! At the time, one of the reasons I agreed to TMP is because it was one of the least hunky, back then anyway! But, from the start, their customer service was beyond arrogant, superior, smug, condescending, .. need more words here.... (and I am always unfailingly polite at least at first). So to this day, I actively recommend to everyone to not buy TMP. I bend over backwards for my customers. TMP was like, oh thank you for the 14k, who the hell are you?
  8. Why are more and more clothing designers boycotting TMP? There seems to be a hate on for them growing...... I have a TMP mesh body -- should I start looking for a new one from someone else; will I be stranded with no choice of clothes?
  9. Thanks for help, all. Genuinely helped guide me in making my choices towards a mid-cost range computer. I'm on it now, and it's truly whisper quiet. Love it. Ended up with: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB DDR, Intel Core i7 7700 Kaby Lake, 16 GIG ram, SSD drive for program files, SATA drive for data, 600 Watts True Power, Slince ATX Tower with Glass side. I know I could have spent more, could have spent less, but this should see me through for a few years. Now I just gotta figure out how to slow things down... I hit tap to fly a couple metres, and next thing I know I'm 4 sims over, haha.
  10. Yes, you did. My question was a follow-up to your subsequent discussion / opinion of CPUs after that: "i5s are dead meat by now as quad core CPUs are beginning to rot. Look at "Battlefield 1" multiplayer benchmarks and see the symptoms, especially when focussing on the minimum FPS they may generate. ;There is one exception, the i7 7700k ... quad core, capable of hyperthreading, highest out of the box single core speed ... overall, probably your best choice for Photoshop as of now." And I thank you for that. I used it as a kick-off point for some searching and reading on what's been happening with AMD the past few years.
  11. Is there an AMD CPU you'd recommend looking at?
  12. The card looks good Nalates. Which one did you get? asus, msi, evga or geforce? And would you get the same again? I see now the MSI gaming at least advertises itself as silent. How noisy are you finding your video card? With my particular form of tinnitus, the ear ringing increases in response to stuff like noisy fans (and fish tank pumps, etc) to match that noise.
  13. Thanks for your suggestion Lilith, sadly looks like access is restricted as newegg is insisting I create an account to view it. Thanks anyway! AMD has hated me ever since it was called ATI still, so I'll personally avoid it. Gotcha, Qie. Do you have any suggestions for a 2017 mid-range computer config good for SL? What are you running on; are you happy with it; what would you change?
  14. Looking for spec suggestions on a good mid-range Windows computer for SL. Not budget, and not thousands and thousands of dollars. I'll have it built for me. I have a biz in SL and so don't want lag making me spend 3 hours to do some work which could otherwise be done in 1 hour. I'm also a heavy photoshop user and graphics handler for other work outside SL. I'd like to stick to NVIDIA video cards. Ever since AMD was called ATI and still located back in Toronto, I've had nothing but bad luck with those cards, so I have no stomach for them. Happy for those who have had good luck and like them. Bonus if the system is potentially Sansar ready (even though we have no idea what that will be, and even though this forum is SL,I know....) [ Even so, apparently they are making sure that your SL name is reserved for you in Sansar. https://modemworld.me/lab-chat-3-project-sansar/#id ] I used to be a tech support person in another life so I can understand BIG WORDS but I'm VERY rusty now with what's out there as my focus has shifted to programming. Qie Niangao last summer posted some starting suggestions. Any other opinions???? Video Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater CPU Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater Memory 8GB+ RAM Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port OS Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer Looks like the 970 would MORE than cover Sansar, according to the Lindens "The Geforce 970+ is not our minimum spec, that is and Oculus and Vive minimum spec for VR. For just using Sansar on a regular PC or desktop, we’re not going to require that high of a spec" ( https://modemworld.me/lab-chat-3-project-sansar/#graphics ) so I guess I can focus on a good mid-range computer for SL. OH, and the top top priority? Life has blessed me in the past few years with tinnitus. So a silent video card fan is a must, as noises aggravate the ear ringing.
  15. 2GB vs 4GB Video Cards for Second Life ? All things being equal -- assume great bandwidth, a great CPU, great power supply available. 64 bit system, great clocked speed on the video card in question you are looking at ..... I know there are a million factors, like a racing car, but just wanted to look at one, though I know someone will tell me I can't. lol. But here's my question: If you pay 40 extra bucks to get an extra 2 GB memory on a video card, versus the same darn card in every way for 40 bucks less with only 2 GB memory (and like I said, with everything else about the machine being assumed great and the card assumed the same), will Second Life take advantage of that extra 2 GB or not be able to ? I know all about the other factors so am really not looking for a discussion on those, though I'm sure it will end up that way anyway lol. Just wanted opinions strictly on the 2 GB vs 4 GB. Does anyone know?
