  1. You cannot hide yourself from the in world search, at all. I have actually asked this question in the Firestorm group support. LL does move names from database to database and search is probably not able to access them all. And again I will state Pamela...in order to use legacy search, you MUST install Firestorm Once that is done, log in and click CONTENT on the top title bar. Then click LEGACY SEARCH. Put the dot in whatever thing you are looking for and type away. Using legacy search this way is tons better as I have actually grown use to web search and only use legacy for other things.
  2. In Firestorm, click Content on the top...then Legacy Search. This was added in Firestorm If you do not have the current version, please update.
  3. Go to a build enabled land, click build...then click the ground. Pretty simple.
  4. I second this. I've had enough studies from stupid colleges and we surely don't need them from pathetic community colleges, national colleges, or any further ones from colleges we have never heard of.
  5. Dillon Levenque wrote I did notice you were a bit taller than me, but only a bit. Some of my friends that have been here a long time are damn near Amazon height, but it does seem to me that the trend is for shorter avatars, which must be a relief for women that are under 5' 5" in RL and have taken pains to make their avatar match that; they might stop being mistaken for children if the trend continues. This happens constantly actually. My avatar is only about 6'2", rather short for SL, but exactly my real lfie height. The overly large, steroid types guys who look like they are going to go into roid rage scare me. That trend is slowly fading as more and more realistic skins are released and better shapes are being made. The one thing I wish LL would do is update the shape base, as it has been around for quite a while without an update.
  6. I second and thirdly say to store clothes, shoes, skins, hair, etc in a prim. Amethyst nailed this. I see no need in tossing away things that you have bought when wishing that you didn't when you feel like being retro.

Many, many thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to provide info/advice. Yes you can actually. You will need a Windows 7 Disk. Pop it into the DVD/BR drive, and boot from it. You can wipe out the Windows 8 partitions and then proceed to install Windows 7 on a fresh partition. However, I would suggest that you make Windows 8 DVD's first(most manufacturer's allow you to make a copy) before you wipe out anything.
  8. Don't forget that when you change a core operating system component such as the motherboard or processor to a different one than what you originally installed the operating system on, you will need to reinstall Windows. This does not apply to power supplies, DVD/BR drives, RAM, memory card readers, sound cards, ethernet cards. Video cards...I would stick with newer technology. I just upgraded to the Nvidia GTX 650ti 2GB back in November. It is a great card, runs smoothly, is relatively short(not one of those 9 inch long cards), and runs SL perfectly. Matter of fact, this video card took my Windows Aero score from 5.2 up to 7.6! This card back when I got it was $200 though the price has probably come down some. Check at Newegg.com or Tigerdirect.com. Most of your computer guru's are going to buy parts from one of those two sites. ETA: Fixed typos and grammar.
  9. Nevermind...just found them. They are from J's. /me face palms
  10. I am trying to find the boots that are in the photo for this listing...can anyone help me out? Boot Link
  11. There are generous people in this world you know. But it leads me to believe that you are just an irritable punk kid by the post you made.
  12. Can't remember which, but it is either Inworldz or Avination that you can choose your own last name. Linden Lab made a HUGE MISTAKE in doing away with last names. Trying to force people to use display names. One word to sum it all up: Idiotic.
  13. Leia36 wrote I have only ever unfriended one guy and that was cause he wouldn't take no for an answer. I have ran across people like this constantly. It does nothing for their manners. I would like to be treated like I am in real life actually, but that is hard for some people to grasp apparently. Would you go up to someones bf/gf/partner in real life or a random stranger on the street and say "Want sex?" Of course not. What makes them think that it is any different here? Makes me want to rage on them and slap them upside the head and knock some sense into them. There is a line between here and real life and that line has become so clouded. I don't see SL as a game, but as an extension of my real life self personality wise. There are things that are different but I am not going to trust someone at the drop of a hat either. I have been hurt by way too many people inside this world.
  14. I don't think this has anything to do with the bridge actually, but you never know. Click on Avatar >> Avatar Health >> Recreate LSL Bridge. Make sure you are in a rez and script enabled area. The bridge is responsible for script counting within the viewer along with being a part of Firestorm's radar function.
  15. Anyone else hate this when people put something similar in their profiles: " I trim my friends list every so often. If we haven't chatted in a while you may be deleted. No reflection on you and no offense intended. Doesn't mean we aren't still friends." If they were a friend, why would you delete them out of your friends list? Makes the people who say such things sound really arrogant, that they don't care about anyone but themselves...in other words...The God Complex.
  16. No one has access to my feeds but my friends, and even though they do...I never post on it. They want to contact me, all they need to do is send a simple IM. I never hide my status. If I wanted a facebook-ish crapface, I would use facebook. I personally hate social media, despise it to the core.
  17. Sometimes SL sticks with the attachments. Relog and then try to remove that sleeve again.
  18. It's partitally transparent when it is not active. If you were to click on the profile, the transparency goes away.
  19. There is the SL upper limit actually. Linden Lab servers run at 1500kbps max. Those servers will not run faster than that and if you boost your bandwidth above that, it is just wasted. You will not rez faster, tp faster, nothing faster. Ricky, you will want to check this link out: Speed Test ETA: You could also try rebaking or the refresh texture within the pinwheel when right clicking on your avatar.
  20. That is actually the Phoenix skin in Firestorm. Looks great doesn't it?
  21. Youtube Vids are playable. You don't even need an expensive TV. You can play them right on a prim actually. The other people may need to press play on their viewers for media other than radio to see the videos.
  22. LoL Rival! Can we thank the pyshologist who ever came up with that? I am quite sure it wasn't Freud. I am like you, a people watcher. My life is far from perfect. Both in real and sl. I love a good debate, as long as said debate doesn't start turning ugly with name calling, raking me out on my sexuality. Matter of fact, I have made some very good friends simply by having a 'colorful' discussion if you will. There are specific reasons why we all log into SL. Who am I to say that one reason is better than the other, or to even question the motives of another person.This seems to happen a lot.
  23. I have no idea Czari. The gay community here is well...just one word...weird(yes I'm gay in real too). People who put crap like this in their profile: "If you are not quite right in the head, stay away!!" -- That is quoted from an actual profile. Who is right in their head these days? The world has changed so much, though it never seems to evolve here? I will always look at the person who is IMing me. Will also read their profile before I respond. Blank profiles are rather interesting. Forrest's Momma said it best when she said "you never know what you gonna get." Haven't we all been whacked up side the head with boulders and stuff too? What I really can't stand is depressing people. Having to constantly tell you how bad their real life is, how their second life sucks. I prefer to stay single. Tons less drama and I answer to no one but myself.
  24. There is nothing further you can do. The Dev team at Phoenix is no longer supporting that said viewer. Eventually, when server side baking comes out, Phoenix will be nothing but a pile of junk code. Your best bet is to jump to another viewer now. If you prefer the V1 interface...I suggest Singularity or CoolVL. Bot support mesh and both will keep hacking v2 code into the obsolete codebase it uses. Or just update to Firestorm, put the skin on Phoenix and move the buttons around, turning on text options for them. You will be very surprised at how much Firestorm looks like Phoenix.
  25. Myself personally....the Docs from Gos are now outdated and use insiviprims, though you can turn them off. Plus there is a tag on the back of those that just loves to poke through pants. I say go with the J's ones. ETA: The script usage on Gos is slightly high too.
