  1. I use Vista Animation's "The Boss". The Marketplace only lists the extended edition: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/VISTA-ANIMATIONS-THE-BOSS-EXTENDED-EDITION/2999652 but there's a basic edition available in-world for about half the price. I used to use their "Business Man" AO but after a while I grew tired of how wooden the standing poses appeared.
  2. You might find something you like from Creative Decay's offerings: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/104124. I've only given it an admittedly cursory look... Good luck with your search!
  3. You might try Joyus Living in Caledon, http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Caledon%20Victoria%20City/213/220/23. She only has a handful of items in the MP; far more extensive selection in-world. Good luck in your search!
  4. I've purchased a lot of mesh clothing from hoorenbeek... pieces such as a shirt may have several different meshes depending upon how the clothing will be layered... a shirt might be worn on its own, or layered under a jacket or blazer, and combined with high- or low-rise pants. There are also 3 different sizes (S, M & L)... it makes for a lot of options for a single garment, and undoubtedly adds to the expense. The net effect, though, is a good one.
  5. I like the men's clothing from [hoorenbeek], https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/49237
  6. Have you considered switching to a different viewer, such as Firestorm? It might be an improvement in efficiency and support for your video hardware.
  7. See this thread: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Lifestyles-and-Relationships/Premium-Account-and-Partner-setting-quot-Home-quot-location/td-p/1746607
  8. The 'SL Avatar' folder should be copied to your Runtime/libraries/Character folder, the 'SL Clothing' folder should be copied to your Runtime/libraries/Props folder, and the 'avatar_mesh' folder should be copied to your Runtime/Geometries folder. The avatars will then appear under 'SL Avatar' in the Characters group. Good luck!
  9. There is a useful set of alpha masks available for free in the Marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Avatar-Alpha-Overlays-101311-update/2312783 You'll need to do some trial-and-error to find the one that works best, but it may help a lot with shoes for which there is no supplied alpha mask. Good luck!
  10. Hmm... that never worked for me before, but I just tried it again and it was fine. Go figure!
  11. AFAIK, the only thing she can do is to landmark your home and add it to her favorites for quick access. Doesn't help much when loggin in, though. She needs to belong to the group which owns the land. You can't set a group on the Linden homes.
  12. Have you looked at Robin "Sojourner" Wood's tutorials and in-world resources? I think I recall something in her "Clothing 101" book that addressed necklines. Her web tutorials for SL are at http://www.robinwood.com/Catalog/Technical/SL-Tuts/SLTutSet.html. Good luck!
  13. I like this one from Vista: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/VISTA-ANIMATIONS-BUSINESS-MAN-AO/298451.
  14. Do you have Photoshop CS6 Extended? I can't open OBJ files in the regular version of CS6, but my old copy of CS3 Extended opens them just fine.
  15. The Hosoi Cluster Welcome Package, which costs a single Linden, contains a male and a female kimono. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Japan%20Chubu/57/244/24 The Harusaki Onsen spa is a lovely place to visit while you're there.
  16. I don't know if you've already come across Japan Kansai, but they are looking for feudal Japanese roleplayers. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Japan%20Kansai/57/5/23 Good luck in your search!
  17. I'm using a Lenovo W520 which works well in Ultra mode. It also works very nicely with Adobe Creative Suite CS6. Lenovo's web price for the W530 (the successor model) is £1250, but you may be able to find a W520 within your price range (though near the top, admittedly). Good luck!
