  2. It means that LL has decided to subsidise users from countries which charge VAT. They can not avoid handing the relevant monies over to the appropriate fiscal authorities, so they are effectively giving a discount, thereby discriminating against those, such as US citizens, who are not affected by such a taxation regime. How do you feel about that, you 75% of LL customers who are paying more than the subsidised 25%?

That's disgusting!!!! Tomato sauce, that is.

  6. Huh, you give someone an answer that works and all you get is Thaks!

How about: "Why, at 13:00 SLT yesterday, were the top fifteen threads (with one exception) more appropriate to the Answers, Your Avatar, Technical or other forums, even external sites?" Because some people are idiots. Next question. I disagree vehemently with your analysis. I would posit that most people are idiots.

I'm saying that there is room for a little more customization or better facial expressions (a few heads already use this stuff), but you'll never see a mesh head in Second Life that can use all the shape sliders. They simply weren't made to be used that way in the ancient times. In another universe you could do it.
  9. This thread is a conclusive demonstration that if something isn't worth doing, it's certainly not worth doing twice.

I'm sorry i bored you. i was hoping to avoid a scripting solution so i didn't want to post it there, i thought it was a pretty basic 'general' question so i thought it made sense to post it here (as this is called general discussion), and from the subject line it's pretty obvious what i'm asking, so if it is not of interest to you please skip it so you aren't bothered. i hope your day gets better than it was. :matte-motes-asleep-2: Best wishes, ~Bleue Seems your question did create some discussion I try extremely hard to convert boring, inappropriate threads into interesting discussions; it is perceptive of you to notice. ~Heue

Of course, since it's a virtual world, there is no magnetic north to work from. Since it's a digital virtual world the concepts of East and West have no validity whatsoever.

  15. Just rectifying the thread title.
  16. Make sure you get a girls bike, without a cross bar. You don't need to stop at red lights and pedestrian crossings, since rl cyclists don't bother either. Watch out for a little black diesel Ford though; I enjoy forcing cyclists off the road.
  17. An internet agreement is not worth the paper it is not written on. Take the ToS for example . . .

  20. Cinnamon Mistwood wrote: HughJegow wrote: No, I am not going to die. Will someone log in as you once a year to correct grammar or or point out failed logic? (Just as a public service) Actually, I wrote a very clever greasemonkey script a couple of years ago and since then it has been regularly creating new avatars, and using them to post random insults and grammar corrections; nobody seems to have noticed the difference.

Reincarnation is an interesting philosophy, but is it just the reputation you want to live on? Will someone log in as you once a year to correct grammar or or point out failed logic? (Just as a public service) I was right. (You should have read the first post with a Dick Van **bleep** "English" accent.) Maybe tomorrow will see my termination. Especially if Technakitty has her way . . . ETA: I am actually astonished that the Mary Poppins chimmannee sweep actor's first name didn't get censored too.

  23. Calumny is my word for the day, and it is dedicated to Jumpman Lane.
