  1. Gianni is cool. I can't find an old man skin for it though, and while my avatar looks 30, my typist is older. I tried searching here too Any older skins out there? Hair? Beards? I have been looking, and buying stuff that doesn't fit gianni
  2. Fun is just toolin' my own things, on my own sim. Community is fun too, but it's not restricted to that. I think that expectations of SL were pretty high, but that it's still challenging to develop a real time virtual environment for expression.
  3. Appreciate the input... generated a seperate cache for Firestorm on second disk and everything seems fine, even a bit of lag loss (few FPS) - probably from not having to access the same local cache of two different viewers simultanously on same disk (multiple avvies) - not sure if this will solve the duplication thing yet tho.. will ressurect this post if it occurs - this is on OSX 10.6 btw, probably should have mentioned that before. Thanks
  4. Appreciate all the info's and M.O.'s.... I thiink I will go with a dedicated avvie for constructs and share perms with my RP'er alts. Would seem to be the best of everything described
  5. I run multiple viewers, (Firestorm, Phoenix, Linden) and just ditched Phoenix for the release Firestorm - I also did a complete reinstall of Firestorm and Linden viewers only recently, and when I restarted Firestorm the first time, my inventory cache started loading duplicates in objects only... (thank god!) I am assuming this is just normal behavior and not a bug... but if anyone knows, I'd appreciate info on it... (I'm assuming the Phoenix Viewer, or the Firestorm beta was replicating on the shared cache, but not sure)
  6. yes, and no - prior behavior of the viewer was different, but after several dozen trials and with some help from Netgear, I found a resolution and do not consider this a security risk - which is what my concern was.
  7. I am headed toward building my first RP estate/area...but I've noticed some real differences in approach to how people do this. Some use an alt, others their primary... or teams of the same. I can't think of any advantage right away, other than it being harder to accidentally delete builds, or remain anonymous in the RP scenario. Are there others that might apply?
  8. For my part it's usually jealousy/frustation over something not going smoothly or as expected - such as a more experienced character defeating me, or stumbling into an arc-rail story (one that can't be altered, so no suggestion, idea, action will matter - there is almost no point in being there sometimes). - but that's on me. Sometimes the situation just wasn't forseen, and RP cooperation is not assured for important reasons. Playing a sci-fi sim (now gone) we had a pretty funky irreverant engineer who'd visit our ship frequently. He did nothing but get drunk and unfriendly time after time. We got attacked and boarded, and suddenly he's up and coherent and messing with engineering... well, after fighting off the first wave of boarders, three of us ran him to ground - he did not cooperate. Not knowing what else to do, and without restraints or a way to deal with keeping him in one spot - we kept unloading on him repeatedly (with weapons). He was pissed, and considered it griefing - I finally contacted him and explained his behavior was that of a saboteur, that we had no way to restrain him, and if he was a saboteur, we needed to keep him isolated. He agreed to hate me IC, and we otherwise dropped it OOC. Communications can go a long ways - sometimes it doesn't float tho, but I try to make my outreach, particularly if I am in the wrong, after that tho, the rest is on the other party.
  9. yeah... I've got avvies across the spectrum now, and actually was asked if I wanted help with my avatar so I did not look like an "old dude"... I think it's similar to tiny/furry discrimination of sorts - but it's on the other party really... do I want to hang with folks who discriminate like that? Not really.
  10. Thanks, I've been using OSX (snow) and XP - will be good to have this around for Win7 tho. Not sure if it's the same on XP, I know it's gone from OSX, tho I just found Phoenix and it's path (forgot it previously, tho it did no changes) - I'm into about 30 hours of diagnostics on my side, am now about to wipe the disks completely and start over. This all began on both systems on the same day, so most of my focus has been on network, but now that's all new... about only thing left is to wipe the drives.

  12. yes, and I went to Valkyrie (region) with a lot of tiny abandoned parcels and found I could purchase them, but still got no information - blank info where the calculated info should be. Point being, would you purchase land for 50kL if your browser was displaying this behavior?

  14. Ok, well, when I bought my land previuosly, the gold symbol would appear, it would calculate new tier, etc., based on my holdings, and present them where the errror message is - while I can still buy land, something is preventing that data from getting to my viewer, unless it's just up to the user now to bring up any holdings and recalculate it for every purchase. I'm ok with that, (not!) I don't think this is an expected behavior of the viewer, but I suspect it is server side
