  1. i reside in the uk, did a speed test to servers in usa, got a ping time of 18 ms download speed 70 m bits, upload speed of 20 m bits my prob is when using firestorm, or any other view, when i visit certain regions on sl, i ge a ping of well over 600 ms, this seems to be problem with lag, can anyone give me info how to get this lower my connection is very good help would be appreciated, thank you
  2. predictive text is a pain, you enter a search it put something else in lol
  3. sometimes it may be your browser, dep on which one you use i get this sometimes with opera or Firefox, mabey it could be your firewall, or anti virus , try clearing browser, history, cookies i use crap cleaner by pinform software its free, sounds like a browser issue, you could also try resetting your modem or router , by turning it off leave off for a minute or to, try ie 11, sometimes the website has a prob where it cant connect due to network interruption this is due to firewall, always update browser to latest version it helps because of security certs etc, hope this helps good luck
  4. not all some might be bots, i found that out when i got no reply from them in chat could be that they wont talk tho, a bot sometimes in the form of an avatar will be a greeter to the sim ie every time you visit they will greet you with a welcome, you say thank you, ask a question then guess, no response from them
  5. it is very hard, i have the same prob as i live in the uk, most of my friends here are from the usa time difference is a tricky one, i cannot get online in the daytime uk time because of my work commitments, weekends is not to bad because i spend a lot of late nights here, i did try it once with late nights in the week , i ended up with exhaustion, and was very ill to the point of hospitalization, so they told me it was a warning to get my rest , i was off sl for about 5 months, but my boyfriend here stuck with me and waited for me, but i did tell him to go and enjoy himself and rp as normal, we have an open relationship, and its good it works for us, all the best and good luck
  6. very true indeed i agree, and thank you for your specs looks a great system you have, i will be upgrading very soon
  7. i dont think u can to be honest unless you can read minds, the beauty of sl is that, unless you are told by the person then you will not know, unless you know the person in rl, rp if someone wants to be ie male or female is totally based on the role they play, a lot of people here would prob want to keep there real id private because of there circumstances in rl, its about trust and having trust, in someone, its a catch 22 question, im not a religious person, but does god exist, no one knows for sure, unless they have seen him or her, its a great question tho, to be honest i would not worry about it, i dont care who or what gender they are in rl or sl, as friends are friends at the end of the day, thats all that matters to me personaly
  8. strange because i use there dns and i can get i get here no problem
  9. i have had this prob it was lag that caused it
  10. try cloudflare dns service, see how that does its free to use and simple to configure, instructions are available on youtube x
  11. thanking you i always clean up my pc after a session its good policy in this day and age
  12. no i ment the dns service i know cloudflare have been around, dont think many knew about the dns service i only found out after looking on you tube
  13. looks like a corrupt file issue or it has gone missing some where try cleaning the firestorm files completely out it sometimes leaves files behind after uninstalling so i do it manual by locating the firestorm folder and deleting it then i reinstall also the registry can be a prob after you uninstall so get a registry program a good one that will repair the registry on windows, or have you tried system restore
  14. i had a issue on my windows based pc, with another game it was getting pixalated , strange shapes etc it was a graphics card issue drivers was the fault
  15. i have been having a few issues with firestorm since the update made me wonder if it need a patch or update may be that it gets very buggy, found it uses a lot of memory as well ,
  16. i tried ramdisk was not very good to be honest
  17. my friend has got ssd what he does is he installs to hdd, thus freeing up the ssd to use window programs, so it copes better the the short cut is on the desk top, but games are on hdd bearing in mind he has a really powerful i7 based pc, i suppose the way forward would be some large ssd disks , but they are really fast drives, one prob was when they first came on the market, he had a spike in the power, shut down his pc, and killed the ssd could not get it to work again but they may have improved on them now
  18. love faggots me i im from the west midlands uk, its my favourite dish, i get confused bout it as well nice with mushy peas too, used to sell em at the chippy by me
  19. charming, not all trans are gay i know that for a fact, and i think you have been nasty to me but im not bothered, i was just making a point of view, and u jump down my throat, thanks for that bye bye
