  1. It was just two pics, about 1.5MB each, but I had the same issue with one. I have given up; I've got am imgur account anyway so I just used that instead.
  2. It works vice-versa too: if you have a mesh body then often an item made in classic sizes will fit too. But this isn't always the case so it's important to try demos first. In particular, often the alpha-cuts in the HUD don't match with the garment. And if you have a classic body and you're trying to wear something for a mesh body, they normally don't come with an alpha mask at all, so you'd need to make your own.
  3. I shouldn't have to compress an image that's already less than half the permitted size.
  4. So by this I would assume that it's the responsibility of the stream provider; Shoutcast etc.
  5. Suddenly, I keep getting the error that they exceed the size restriction, even when they are significantly smaller. I can upload anything up to about 2MB but anything bigger than that, I get the warning that they must not exceed 4.88MB, and it won't let me post. This has been going on for at least a couple of days.
  6. Just in case anyone wasn't sure, here's a hint or two...
  7. I did the same as Blush; I used the provided texture as a starting place, then in a graphics editor I added a shadow layer around the edges (just played around with the Vignette option until it looked okay) then I uploaded the new texture back into SL and applied it to the walls. It turned out a bit too dark; next time I'll have more transparency in the vignette layer, but it looks far better than it did without.
  8. Apologies for the poor quality of this one. My desktop PC died so I had to get my laptop out and install GIMP on it, and I have no clue how to use this darn thing.
  9. I use "Nam's Optimum Skin and Prim" almost all the time. It's one of the defaults in Firestorm but if you don't have it you can make something similar in the Environment Settings menu by altering the Sun/Moon light (turn it way down dark) and Ambient Light (turn it way up high). This will eliminate those ugly shadows on all avatars, not just your own.
  10. You could buy either and they both will work. If you think you might change to a different body in the future, and would want to use this skin on it, go with Omega.
  11. I have never used ban lines or security orbs. Both of them are problematic for people passing by in vehicles including planes, and I would rather have a plane pass safely over my parcel than deal with returning ones that have crashed on my land because the pilot got ejected. If anyone obnoxious comes in while I am there, I can still eject and ban. If I am not there, I neither know nor care. I do appreciate that people who have had problems with stalkers need more rigorous security. In that case, a private estate would be more appropriate than mainland.
  12. I often take a week off simply because my RL is too busy to spare the time. This is healthy, I think. RL should always take priority.
