  1. You don't learn, do you? Your previous thread was relocated somewhere more appropriate. If you aren't careful, you'll get disciplined for spamming! [i used to be a werewolf, but I'm much better nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!]
  2. So the Maya users are mainly the Chosen Few . . .
  3. Ah, Ebbe also mentioned "The Lab does not view the new platform as a contiguous world with a unified geography” and "There will be segregation based on age / content" so he obviously intends to create ghettoes for grown-ups - as well as minors that don't even have to lie much - or perhaps he has never acquainted himself with the age verification debacles.
  4. Oh, and "don’t expect full backwards compatibility" and "it’s not even clear to us if we will preserve the original format in any shape or form" and "we’re focused more on high performance and high quality, and probably less about portability " and "direct content migration in all cases will not be possible". So don't bust a gut making too much new stuff in the current SL, and think carefully about spending on new purchases.
  5. You're obviously having problems with written comprehension. I will spell it out to you. You asked what type of skills are employers looking for. I answered that they were perhaps looking for work experience in Second Life, of which you said you had none. This would explain why nobody seems to want your services, something you appear to still find surprising. [And you are obviously lacking in the skill of not overselling yourself with pretentious unverifiable claims.]
  6. "One interesting decision we made among ourselves, just the other day, is that we want the next generation platform to be 13+" - Ebbe Altberg, VWBPE 2015 Well, that completely puts the mockers on SL V2 for Adult participants.

  8. If you want an answer, why don't you post your question in the Answers section? I am sure a bunch of charitable busybodies will cut and paste the appropriate advice and screenshots for you there. [Callum is a Gaelic name for a bunch of erstwhile kings of Scotland; were you banished to Yorkshire?]

  10. Damn! Now those annoying 'nucks are going to start banging on about poutine . . . . . . and I will have to retaliate with curry and chips.
  11. Medhue Simoni wrote You'd be lucky to find 10 Maya users in SL. That's probably because the Mayans thought the world was going to end in 2012. Out of interest, are there any Maya users here in GD? [Yeah, I know, that question should really be asked in the Technical Forum.] PS Anyone that claims to be will have to prove that they are neither a Linden alt nor a shill. PPS Is it coincidence that one of the meanings of the original Sanskrit word Maya is "Unreal"? PPPS All of the other meanings imply something that doesn't, and will not exist except as a figment of someone's imagination. PPPPS Do you think LL's codename for SL V2 is Maya?

Biscuit?!?!? You don't dunk Biscuits, you dunk cookies.. and Donuts. Biscuits get covered in gravy. The reply I knew would come... ...from someone who had not read the whole thread carefully - see this post.

Your picture looks like a glorious summer's day in Wales! My view of the eclipse was great. Forget the expensive special glasses, I wore two pairs of my kids 3D specs they use for movies. [Maybe I'll try that trick when I am next in SL; cheaper than that ridiculous Ormolu Rex thing that makes you sick.]

  15. . . . the UN International Day of Happiness! So smile!!! Or else a platoon of blue-bereted Lithuanian Peacekeepers will smash down your front door and tickle you with their bayonets. [Has Linden Lab been tinkering with real world settings; for an hour this morning the sun went out in the UK?]

Unfortunately this is platform/browser independent - is web-side. But . . . but . . . but . . . all the complainants appear to be Apple users! [Perhaps it's actually a wetware-category problem.]

  20. I like do-it-yourself chocolate digestives. You take "ordinary" digestives (you are right, accept no cheapskate substitute for McVitie's) and slather some high-class dark chocolate spread on them. Only for dunking in hot chocolate, where it doesn't matter if the spread melts into the drink.
  21. Berlin Mesmeriser wrote: I"ve been frowned upon before, it has no effect on me. So, by omission, presumably you ARE affected by the more serious consequence of your posts being potentially actionable by LL as spam, which might get you banned, which would solve your problems at a stroke. Or are you, as is my wife, selective in what you focus your rose tinted spectacles on: she keeps asking "What's the worst that could happen?" when I criticise her driving, and gets upset when I point out that she could die, and kill our kids, and wipe out another car, and a bunch of pedestrians . . .
  22. I should mention that I am avid reader of the web site www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com which has its main focus on biscuits, but also covers cakes and tea. Could you ask for more? [Perhaps you could ask for it to be updated, as it has not been since 2008 . . . but trawling the "feedback" is interesting.]

I want to sound all posh and fancy and say something along the lines of Hob Nob, but the truth is it's got to be the reliable Richtea. A Digestive has a far better soaking quality, but that is seriously offset by its fragilty. Ah....I tried those. I do like them a lot. But, they tend to break so easily! I should have mentioned perhaps, I do not dunk in tea - I do not believe in drinking hot water - but I prefer Ovalmaltine (or Horlicks as you probably call it). Do you think dunking in malt drinks requires a different biscuit? Ah, that would be the ones with pictures of grazing cows on them; malted milk, I believe. For milky drinks my personal preference is something my now sadly departed grandmother used to consider her special treat: Marie biscuit sandwiches. This involved slathering one Marie biscuit (very difficult to find now, and relatively expensive for what are simple plain thin tasteless rounds in their unenhanced form) with heart-blocking amounts of full-fat butter, then placing another on top. The dunking process has a visual aspect, with melted butter forming golden spirals in the froth of the milky drink, but don't do it with tea, it just looks like scum. I have to admit that there is a degree of danger of disintegration, but I limit my risk by consuming the whole snack in one. [it didn't do much harm to my Gran; she lasted until her late 80s.]

Caity, Caity, Caity! Why waste a critical discussion topic on a portmanteau thread such as this. And don't you dare go and ask them over in Answers! This question deserves a whole Friday thread of its own. [For our colonial friends "biscuit" is real English for what you call a "cookie".] Oops.....I may post it again tomorrow and perhaps I could then also mention the Bourbon, which I do not like but are always in the majority in those packs with 'assorted' biscuits. You can mail me your spare bourbons, I love 'em! Just address the package to "The ASBO Man hanging around the outside of the Milton Keynes Shopping Centre he is banned from." [Plus ca change . . . eh!]
