  1. As long as you use that viewer to make backups / copies of stuff you created yourself you have nothing to worry about. If you copy somebody elses stuff, you need explicit permission from them. If you copy somebody elses stuff and you don't have their explicit permission to do so, you are liable to be reported and banned. I think that also counts when not redistributing or sharing your copies.
  2. Funny. Few people know her, but everybody refers to her when mentioning a bug in computing these days.
  3. You can also save yourself much troubles if you can exchange your GPU from ATI to NVidia. Afaik ATI users experience much more trouble in properly installing and maintaining their driver than the latter. I always stuck to NVidia and hardly have the trouble I notice ATI users have. Not questioning ATI products, just the(ir) (proprietary) driver support on linux.
  4. You cannot change your IP ? Is yours static for some reason ? ( Not about customer service, but thinking practical here on your behalf. )
  5. Afaik live-support is only availiable to premium-accounts. Always been like that I think ( but could be wrong ). Was once stuck for 2 weeks in a former free account. Can happen. Usually login issues, like your friend has, disappear when SL servers are restarted after updates. Might be more helpful to your friend trying to clear his cache or trying to login at start at a different location ( try Pooley ) and more tricks others might reply here in this thread.
  6. ok Steganography is putting the code into the picture. But the code within the picture needs to be triggered by an executable ( program, engine ) specifically written to execute the code. Has to be done client-side. ETA : What the OP is referring to is technically feasible. The claim that SL is 'infected' seems rather unlikely to me. A false positive by the virusscanner is all the more. This better perhaps ? An' wuzzat 'bout mah granma ?

To make it executable the recipient should be tricked to open the image with a malicious application to execute the code from within.
  8. As good as nothing on marketplace. There are many references to tennis, but that usually refers to shoes or shirts.
  9. Let's see. Android ICS. Lumiya viewer. Dolphin-viewer for forums. Nope. No trouble here. ETA : Goes for Chrome for Android too. And Puffin Browser. Opera. Funny. Only Firefox seems to have trouble with forum menu's, but logging on/off went ok. Unable to test IE for Android.

Mint is based on either Ubuntu (Mint 14 corresponds with Ubuntu 12.10) or on Debian. So, I can try the Debian version, and see if it works better, or I can "regress" to a version of Mint that works because it's based on Ubuntu 11.10. In either case, would running apt-get update or apt-get upgrade from an older distro put me right back in the same position, or would it only upgrade the packages that are not too modern for my 3 year old machine? I mean this fo now on
  11. solstyse wrote: I have done a bit of research,and found that I'mnot the only one who feels that Ubuntu distros later than 11.10 feel "broken" but at the same time, there are plenty of people who have no trouble at all with releases up to their latest 12.10. there also seems to be some disagreement on the net as to what is the cause. Some cite the libfontconfig 2.9 files, saying that replacing them with libfontconfig 2.8 specifically in your sl directory will fix it. Others say it's a video driver issue. It seems that this is unique to Ubuntu, although not all users experience the symptoms.
  12. solstyse wrote: So, the last version of Ubuntu that worked perfectly for me was 11.10. I'm wondering what dropped from the repository that would make it stop working as soon as it hit the number 12. TDD123 replies : Sounds to me like when upgrading you do so by apt-get upgrade only. Are you aware that general upgrading to a newer version number of your distro requires apt-get (-f) dist-upgrade too ? The -f is optional. Distribution upgrades can be tricky though and can break dependencies. Muon has a graphical package manager that might assist you better. solstyse wrote : I
  13. Ok .. Sorry for the delay, but have got some time now. Thanks for starting the thread already. Downloading latest SL client ( Linux beta ) and will get back to this asap. ETA : Working.

Thanks for your time, and thanks for reading! -Devoran Comet I think it's a very ambitious plan and perhaps impossible. Remember real-time is hard to emulate for all involved when depending on network traffic, latency, error correction and what not that might interfere with this dream. It will be hard enough to pull all you want off with only

Or maybe I am just over analysing things. It's tricky to say. The waste of time is not essential in my general message to the OP. This is : Time is not precious amongst friends without consideration. Expect common decency even from non-friends.
