  1. For the last few years in Second Life, I've noticed that when I teleport to other people, I rez on top of their heads. Why is that happening?
  2. I just noticed I can't post using the Flickr "floater" in FIreStorm viewer, either. The "Account" button won't let me change the password to the new value (I updated my log-in from Yahoo! last month.
  3. In my Linden Home, ready to go dancing with Cary
  4. On the rooftop of the Chenier Embassy to the Linden Mainlands
  5. Me at Taka no Sakura, the ultimate Japanese sim.
  6. I have more than one alt. In the interest of enhanced security, I use a different password on each. Moreover, I just use one computer, my laptop, for Second Life. But it's an inconvenience, not a tragedy. One that I could easily avoid by purchasing a purse-size notebook and entering each password and username into it, perhaps in the Cyrillic alphabet so casual violations of my privacy are difficult. Moreover, Whirly answered my question - this is a "feature", not a "bug" and its purpose is to bind easy access to our SL accounts to the specific computers we use to access Second Life, which works for me. If I'd been aware that's how Firestorm worked, I wouldn't even have brought the question here.
  7. Thanks, Whirly! I wondered if it was perversity, but actually it's a reasonable precaution to keep SL residents' login information private! And your explanation makes it clear that Microsoft is (as I suspected) entirely responsible for this. I just wish my banking information were this secure.
  8. This isn't (I think, anyway) a real "necro bump" - I've had the exact issue the OP complained of, opening Firestorm to discover my username and password fields blanked and this message box appearing every time Microsoft applies a "major system update" to Windows 10: It just happened again because Microsoft decided to annoy me with more "improved" system apps I'll never use such as "3D Print". The procedure augmeta describes, "1. Close all processes of Firestorm 2. Browse to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Firestorm_x64\user_settings\ 3. Delete bin_conf.dat (click yes for admin rights) 4. Reopen Firestorm." Kills the message BUT, unfortunately, does NOT restore my username/password list. Just to warn you. Patty (angelpatty resident)
  9. As far as clothing on mesh bodies in general, most legacy stuff that's not sculpty won't show up. Most mesh outfits will. The Maitreya mesh body HUD allows you a new world of alpha customization that will allow you to wear your mesh (without requiring Maitreya appliers) in the size you're used to wearing or one larger. And you can always alpha your entire body out neck-to-feet if you must wear a one-piece outfit with its own skin (though that defeats the entire point of buying a mesh body, there are rare occasions you'd want to - flight suits and other form-fitting wear, pant suits, etc.). But good mesh outfits generally do show up well on Maitreya, and the ability to adjust alpha to custom shapes (one that, like mine, you've tweaked for several years) is worth the price of the Maitreya Lara by itself. If you customized your shape and it's not one of the "five standard Mesh shapes", you'll find that you can now wear a lot of mesh you couldn't with the legacy alphas. That's all even before you buy a single Maitreya applier outfit. Some Maitreya undies aren't appliers - beware, they can show through even Maitreya outerwear. Oh, look into buying the Omega bridge. It's more than worth it if you have clothes you like that have appliers not for Maitreya, especially Omega appliers. Be sure to buy the Omega bridge for Maitreya.
  10. Redgrave has appliers for their skins, too, and they work well with the Maitreya Lara (you might want, on the Maitreya HUD, to try (on the "skins and options" tab) the "neck fix on/off" button and see what you like best. My experience has been with the Lara and the Redgrave Kiara (pale) skin. There are two neck blenders (for the two different shades of "pale" and an applier HUD with eight different decolletages and nipple shapes for each shade of pale.
  11. Great point! And to be perfectly honest, SL, Utherverse and other virtual worlds are pretty up-front about telling newbs that "jobs" in these worlds aren't SUPPOSED to take the place of an RL job. Of course, if you designed something that sold for L$250 and each of us in SL bought one, of course, you'd be a multi-millionaire, even if all we bought was ONE. And Anshe Chung's an example of how you can leverage (in their case) SL real estate and make the sort of money that gets you subpoenaed to Congress to explain that you're not really laundering drug money. But (all self-love aside) I had a reasonably popular line of women's shapes in SL Marketplace, and at its most popular phase, I was essentially paying for my own SL activities with the lindens I made from it. I may re-enter SL Marketplace (when they eliminated Magic Boxes, LL essentially put me out of business, because by then I was full-time maintaining my group's sim and didn't even notice my MP Store no longer had merchandise) at some point, but it'll be when doing so becomes entertaining to me. Watching enough Lindens roll in to buy a Diet Coke at the end of a day... isn't serious investment, and I won't indulge in the drama of pretending it is. To the OP: get an RL job, or learn enough business theory to play with RL capital, if that's your priority. SL actually models how governments tend to "pick the winners" in real life very well. And you were schooled just as countless RL small business people are getting schooled in the US when the Federal Government decided to drastically increase their marginal cost of labor.
  12. Surprising to see traffic-gaming no longer works, considering LL doesn't enforce their own prohibition on the practice. I've reported one club owner who had ten bots on her fractional-sim club several times, and this person (after having that club crash due purely to her own ineptitude in dealing with other people) is happily spending other people's Lindens running another club which is chock full o' traffic bots and alts designed solely to inflate her traffic figures. In fairness to her, she's GOT traffic now - because she discovered the secret of running a meat market. Not going to bother reporting TOS violations LL doesn't care about - since they themselves are probably getting ready to game anyone with signifcant investment in their Second Lives.
  13. The scary part is that we watched SLGo blossom then wink out when Sony bought them and most of us haven't taken the lesson - that this is just foreshadowing of what **bleep**erberg may decide to do if he wants to open his wallet, buy Second Life, then shut it down to make us go over to Facebook. Goodbye inventories, goodbye everything. I wouldn't put it past him to sue to close the OS grids. You KNOW he's thinking about it. And you know Rosedale and company wouldn't object on (pauses for laugh here) moral grounds. Rosedale had his lawyers grab copyright on anything we make here because he's the big cheese and we're the little crumbs.
  14. Just one thing: the AnyPose product we're interested in in this discussion is "AnyPose Expression" - all the the other AnyPose products are pose stands intended to allow the user to make realistic frames for avatar animations, and only one of THOSE, AnyPose Demo, is free.
