  1. Splashtop and Teamviewer are both free ways to access your home PC from a mobile device. There's a bunch of other options that you can use that cost about $10 a month. Just google "remote access mobile" to find lots of options.
  2. This is happening to me constantly for the past few days. I seriously doubt that its my video card (or hope not), because I'm using one of the new NVidia GTX Titan cards. It also happens sometimes if I don't even move the camera - things just blur and then refocus again. Its never happened prior to this that I can recall. Its not just me, either. The person standing next to me said it was happening to them, as well. Right now, I'm standing in front of a trash can with a 512 x 512 texture. I mouse over it until it renders properly, then move the mouse - within about 15 seconds, the object is blurry again. If I move the mouse back over - or even just wait a while..it focuses and then becomes blurry again a few seconds later. I was beginning to think it was a sim issue, but reading this and hearing that others are experiencing the same, I think perhaps its not.
  3. Shady Falls gets a smallish but good crowd in the SL mornings, most days. I can't guarantee RP, but as long as there are people willing to come and be a green dot, it usually brings more. You're welcome to come have a look if you enjoy paragraph style roleplay.
  4. Hi Hyeena, We're still a very new sim and there are a lot of openings left. Everything from working with one of the gangs, to starting your own "under" gang (typically these pay a portion of their income to the power currently in charge of their turf), to some business we have that still need owners as well as the town Sheriff's office and Deputies. Have a stop by if you want to just look around.
  5. Shady Falls is a 1920s themed urban sim. Featuring ethnic neighborhoods where prohibition and the promise of easy money are beginning to reshape communities, Shady Falls is a struggling, dark place seeking to strike it rich. Join us for intensive paragraph roleplay focusing on individuals, mostly-immigrant neighborhoods and the struggle to thrive in the small but growing city of Shady Falls. We are flourishing after our first month open and have openings for roles in every community as well as several businesses still seeking ownership. The ethnic gangs are accepting members and the flow of alcohol has finally begun. Small groups of paragraph rpers will find themselves at home, here. Come by and observe at any time: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shady%20Falls/135/99/39

  7. Bumping this. 17 days left to enter. We have some amazing entries already.
  8. The sim many of you knew as City of Perdition has temporarily closed and is being recreated as a 1920's urban roleplay sim to be known as Shady Falls. Our biggest challenge in opening an urban sim set in the 20's is to help roleplayers find the kind of quality mesh clothing they've come very quickly to demand. Our build is going up with modern SL techniques, and roleplayers want their clothing to match those high standards. In order to address the shortage of "modern" vintage clothing in Second Life, Shady Falls is hosting a "1920's Outfit Contest" with a 50,000Linden prize. To enter, all you have to do is create a new 20's outfit (it can be for sale in your stores or at Vintage Fair right away) and post a photo of it to our Flickr Group at: Flickr: Shady Falls [Secondlife Roleplay] . You are welcome to include URLs or SLURS in your entry. We want to help you sell clothing - it helps us sell a new type of roleplay to those accustomed to modern. The contest runs from now until August 30th and anyone is invited to participate, provided the outfit is original and their own creation. This is not a photo contest, but a clothing design contest - though a nice looking photo can't hurt. In addition, even for those who don't win, we are happy to provide free advertising in the form of inclusion in our sim notecards with LMs and possibly even a single prim vendor at no cost for those designers who submit great entries. Our only goal is to encourage development of period clothing so that our players have a lot to choose from. For details, please contact Jon Vetinari in world - or just go ahead and upload your new creations to Flickr. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8284/7704325876_4bfb3669e4_c.jpg
