Which...kinda just confuses me more - the part about the HUD not being required to play. I checked the wiki and isn't it kind of required to do quests and the like? Or have them issued and get your HUD updated to do them? I mean, from what I can tell, the only other thing to all this is walking about aimlessly and touching little glowing things on the ground?
Sooo, I've tried all this suggestions - nothing worked. Also checked the troubleshooting post, switched over to the default SL browser (was previously using Firestorm) and still no dice. Are there any other suggestions here?
