  1. Apparently mine was 2 months ago. Missed that one .. Apparently Neph's is the day after Orwar's. Which is completely by chance. Missed that one too. Mina's turning 1 in November .. Probably going to miss that as well. If any of my rez days ever have been observed, it's been by Catrie.
  2. Yes, many clothes have scripts that command your body to hide parts of it to avoid clipping (i.e. the skin of the body moving through the clothes). When you take the clothes off, there may be a short moment before the body re-shows the hidden skin as the body re-bakes. It's entirely natural, so nothing to worry about - if the skin doesn't happen to re-appear, you may have to go into the body's HUD and give it a nudge (either a faulty hide-script or lag can cause this).
  3. Which is just yet another reason one shouldn't wear it when out and about .. It's easy enough to add it when you need it.
  4. Offense taken. Huffs. It depends on how intricate the designs are. A simple T-shirt shouldn't be more than ~2,000-4,000, add a meshed collar to make a polo shirt and you'd have to add some, a meshed breast pocket and you'd have to add some more - a complex ball gown with folds and bows and whatnots could well require a fair bit more. However, in reality it's more a matter of mesh design choices, or rather avoiding doing terrible ones; there are plenty of shirts with ~50K complexity which could easily have contained less than a tenth of that if it were better meshed. An example from personal experience is when it comes to rings, I've had ones that add ~40K complexity per hand - now I've found a brand which consistently puts out rings with ~1.2-2K complexity (and that are script-free and modifiable, to boot). It's not because the rings are any less complex in their design, but has everything to do with how they've been meshed. In the end though, it's going to have to be the user's decision. Personally I seldom leave the house with more than somewhere between 25K and 35K complexity, but if I'm dolling my avies up for taking a picture, the complexity isn't a concern. If you want to wear a dress with that high a complexity, perhaps you could compromise by reducing your accessories' complexity - but on the other hand, you don't dictate how high complexity other people around you permit (personally I'm generous enough to allow up to 65K whilst in my 'clubbing' setting, but my 'shopping' setting is 30K - and usually coupled with 'Show Friends Only' if the event/store is busy). TL:DR - If any attachment is >4-5K complexity, it's time to ask whether it's A) worth it and B) appropriately complex for its purposes (i.e. 'I want to look pretty for others' vs. 'half the people around me see me as a jelly doll, so the dress can't be seen anyways but only serves to make it so that people can't see me at all').
  5. Mostly EBM when I've gone. But I don't go there much, most of the time people appear to be AFK farming the 'sploder. And the whole 'meh, people' thing.
  6. This may well have been the best thing to happened since the fall of the Berlin wall. I'm ecstatic.
  7. Yeah, I just had one approved from April 5th. In a dead thread. Oh well.
  8. Between first life, second life, and a whole lot of procrastination in both, I don't think I'll have the time for a third life as well.
  9. .. I've watched way too much Archer lately. 'Halloween' was not what first came to mind ..
  10. Now who's threatening who with a good time?
  11. I could show you some non-HD Catwa clown makeup, if you're interested ..?
  12. Same. I could never get used to the BD UI. Yeah, same. But it's usually not bad in FS for me either, so meh.
  13. You can, in the Firestorm inventory options anyway, turn double-clicking from being the default 'wear' to 'add' instead. But I don't know about 'removing' wear completely .. Myself I've been wanting the ability to select both layers and objects attached and remove both in the inventory, the way you can in your wardrobe ..
  14. Yes, quite the catch 22 that. No one makes anything worthwhile for the guys 'cause 'no one buys anything', but in reality 'we' don't shop 'cause there's nothing worthwhile to buy.
  15. But it's so confusing 'cause the 'Murrican red is blue and the European blue is the other way around, and just like milk that one might guess is super-alkaline because it's so mellow, it's actually slightly sour .. Wait, I lost the metaphor along the way. Anyway. Drink milk. It's good for you.
  16. There's a progress of attempting to undo that, in some cases. In Swedish we have words such as 'polisman', 'brandman', and 'sjuksköterska' ('police man', 'fire man', 'sick-tender-ess' i.e. 'nurse'). Suggested alternatives have been .. Peculiar. Like, 'brandhandläggare'. Which .. Basically means 'fire desk jockey' (or, word by word, 'fire-hand-layer', but a 'handläggare' is usually an administrative goon doing bureaucratic whatnots .. Also it's actually also still grammatically masculine, with the female equivalent being 'handläggerska' which, whilst not used, ever, so .. Bleh? Suffice to say there were some complaints from the actual fire-fighters .. No one's mentioned going back to 'brandsoldat' ('fire soldier') which is considered a rather archaic term these days, but which is technically gender-neutral as, well, there's no word for a female soldier .. Because there didn't use to be any, and the whole idea was probably quite inconceivable until relatively recently). English is a bit of an oddball within the Germanic language branch for not having them. How it looks over in the Romance branch I have no idea .. As for the Finno-Ugric branch .. English: A dog. The dog. Two dogs. Swedish: Hund. Hunden. Hundar. Hundarna. German: Der Hund, ein Hund, zwei Hunde, den Hund, einen Hund, dem Hund, einem Hund, des Hundes, eines Hundes, den Hunden, der Hunden.

  17. Because, usually, racism stems from lines of reasoning such as: 'I did an online search for men kissing men, and because there were fewer men of colour in the pictures, people of colour are inferior to/less worth than white people'?
