Where's Waldo Czari: ETA: Meatloaf is on the far right (just in case you (generic you) have not seen Meatloaf since his younger years; his daughter, Pearl, is the blonde on the far left at the mic. I would guess on the left of the group of people in the middle of the stage. The tall blond in a white top and jeans. She looks right in her element.

It could be because the intelligent ones are avoiding you. :smileyhappy: That sounds as if you are insulting the few female friends I have. How rude. How rude that you would insult the women in SL.

By eliminating all the redundant "portal" design that their competitors thought necessary, and stripping their page to a query box and lots of empty space. That wasn't art, that was pure functionality. That is where you show your ignorance of what art is. That white space is a design decision, an artistic decision. Art is not only the presence of color, forms, lines but about the absence of them too. Just as music is not about filling every measure with notes, sounds but also abo

Visual or personality related. 1. Male, heterosexual or bi. 2. Open, accepting of, comfortable with themselves and others. 3. Good sense of humor. 4. Experienced in RL and SL. 5. As far as avi looks: not grotesque shape, skin or hair.

Even so the first time I attended public school was in the 11th grade. It was quite a cultural shock going from a small all-girls Catholic high school to a county-wide public high school.

As a Wisconsinite, the locations of all those li'l red USA dots bother me, but I can take some small comfort (and you can beam over your Alaskan "hippy" style schooling) that our states are better than average in high school dropout rate (@8:05). Another interesting video. I can't do too much beaming. The "hippy" school and the school for students with learning differences are in Florida.
  8. Madelaine McMasters wrote: ... Here's a reason I'm optimistic and have a huge crush on Hans Rosling... Another fantastic video, Maddy. And I can see why you have a crush on HR - very good speaker and showman. His data showing that better health does not need to be dependent on better economics gives me more hope. But I am still concerned with shifting from spending on the development of technology for economic growth to spending on the development of technology to improve the environment.

Avery, that was an interesting video, but left me feeling a li'l deja vu. I was home schooled for 15 years (birth to college). My childhood classroom was very much like that fella predicted would arrive in the next 10 years. ... So, while the future he's describing sounds very nice, I've already been there. I think others will enjoy it. Here's anothe

I can write cursive backwards. Dunno how I figured that one out. Maybe you were a forger in another life. :smileyhappy: I think that is trick they use to keep their own cursive style from creeping in, either that or writing upside down.
  11. We all learn through sight, sound and touch (probably other ways too but those are the main ways) but not all people learn the same way. Some may learn best through sight. I'm one of those, a very visual person. I can read a technical computer manual and retain quite a bit even if it has concepts that are new to me. On the other hand my audial memory is awful. Someone could tell me 10 times the 4 step proceedure to login to some account, say, and I probably won't remember it. Not until I wrote it down and saw it printed. Others don't seem to be able to pick up things from manuals but ne
  12. Thanks for the advice. And you too Tex. I think I will be able to attempt 3rd person now and not feel too awkward. For 1-on-1 I will probably do what I did my one attempt and follow the lead of the more experienced player. Neither of us had RP experience and although he only had a little more experience with cybersex than my none it was probably mostly my ineptitude that turned our romantic interlude into a bedroom farce/comedy. I never had so much fun playing or laughed so hard in my life. And although I would not trade our fumbling, awkward encounter for anything I hope I can do bette
  13. Dhuanolil wrote: I always use third-person, even when it is just in one-on-one conversations. There are three reasons why I do: one is that using 'Dhuanolil' or 'the Drow' instead of 'me' 'my' or 'I' helps me feel like I am keeping my RL self extremely separate from what is happening in SL. That might sound stupid and some people will happily point that out, but what matters is what makes -me- comfortable, not what others think. ... That is a very good point and may help in having an avatar do something that the person behind it would not normally do. So it could be liberating.
  14. Tex, looks like you guys were having so much fun. :matte-motes-grin: Thanks for sharing. In the last few weeks there was a post on one of these forums that mentioned emotes. Since I had never heard of that before I did look up several sites that explained/gave examples. But seeing them used in that thread has helped a lot, even though some were not necessarily "good" examples (at least according to some of those sites). There seemed to be a lot of determining how other participants would react or even act instead of letting them initiate that for themselves. But then it was playing in the
  15. The Second Life environment seems to be a blend of 1st person and 3rd person and I'm not sure when to use one over the other in my interactions with others. As far as "game play" it is definitely 1st person, which is part of the reason I had so much trouble with it in the beginning. If I had played any 1st person shooter or any simulation games then it would have been easier. Instead all my gaming experience is with "god view" or 3rd person games such as Diablo - Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2 and Sims 3. I kept wanting to see my avatar in her environment. Talking via text wi

  17. Thanks. When I first set this top up I was on my laptop. Now that I'm home again I forgot to turn RLV on my viewer on my IMac. So toggled that on and restarted but still get the same error when I wear the necktie/collar from the item in the #RLV folder: .:GiMa:. back to school knot shirt RLV device + collar (chest)[script:Interaction] Script run-time error Stack-Heap Collision I'll remove and rebuild the #RLV folders for this top and see if it works then. Thanks for your help.

I turned RLV on for a top I bought and I can't get it to work right even though I set up the inventory folders as indicated. Is there info somewhere explaining how this all works? This should be simple so don't think I need to join a group or take a class.

    Here are the standard sizing shapes used by some mesh clothing creators: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Standard-Sizing-Package-Updated-Male-Female/2894727http:// This is free from the marketplace. When adusting your shape using the shape edit feature there are some gotchas: Don't expect the middle of the sliders (50) to yeild an average normal avi. Instead you'll end up with a deformed mishapened human-like figure. Arm length use something over 70. The height using the Linden Lab viewer is not the height of the avi but some component of the avi that will yeild an avi taller than
  20. Oh, Thanks. After being here for over 2 months it's about time I bought some furniture. : )

If the latter then it is necessary to get furniture that fits your avi's height. I have only one peice fo furniture so far, a cuddle chair, but have put off buying any more since most is too large for my 6' avi. Any suggestions for furniture that would fit my 6' avi and one about 6' 5"?
