  1. For anyone who has this video card, is Second Life working successfully for you? [I get that it's probably overkill, and I get that SL will almost certainly never have ray tracing, I just want to know if it works -- I saw one or two random reports of crashing though the users in the end wasn't sure if it were the RTX video card or not causing it.] If anyone wants to suggest another current high-end NVIDIA card, I'm all ears. Price isn't that much a problem, BUT it must be absolutely silent (I have tinnitus and fan noise makes my ears buzz more.) I an ordering a new custom-built computer
  2. 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.
  3. I gave up on TMP last year and moved onto another supplier. Their ability to look after customers proved to be --- TMP.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 los
  6. 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

  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. 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 metre
  11. 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
  12. Is there an AMD CPU you'd recommend looking at?
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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
