    Try to log in to Hatton. I tried first two other places - last location and home, then I came in when I used Hatton.

    Not sure, might just be a lucky time window. I just got into ANWR after an hour of unsuccessful tries ...

    Maybe Oz cracked his whips and the hamsters in their little threadmills run faster again ...

  2. Don't build a Gaming PC for SL - if you want to use it solely for SL a medium tier GPU with 4GB GPU RAM or higher will suffice (unless you run many alts at same time maybe). What you want for SL is the highest frequency CPU processing power thrown at a single thread you can afford.

    Many GPU eye candy stuff available to modern games is not used by SL at all. So a gaming PC tailored to today's needs will miss the target.

    Ban lines should be Banned.. for lack of a better term. What purpose do ban lines serve except to make the world less realistic. No one wants to see them and new users have a steep learning curve to turn them off. If I was a brand new player and came upon a parcel with ban lines I would think twice about sticking with this platform. We need fresh blood in SL. Not for the vamps..lol.. but to keep our platform fresh and populate our world even more.

    Security orbs are dishonest and sneaky compared to banlines. Banlines are honest and straightforward. When traveling mainland I never have problems with banlines - just with security orbs - if anything should be discouraged it is the use of those orbs.

    Not the "victim"?

    Nope, apparently after the SPAMpires started getting some flak they started some weirdo 'honour code' thing that kept you from SPAMming and paying your pyramid fees instead. Funny enough some even seem to take punitive actions upon those who brought begging vampires into the families...

    It's all a big mess LOL.

    I'm just going to go ahead and ask @Tommy Linden or any of the others to go ahead and shut this thread down. It's getting entirely too ridiculous in here and serves no purpose whatsoever. 

    Stop sabotaging threads - YOU and none other brought up the matter... it could have been utterly avoided but you chose to bring it up - please stop flaming in order to get threads closed which you don't like.

    1) bombarded with group invites and notes/landmarks upon entering.

    Those are the best,... as if turning up didn't clearly proof I found the shop already... if you want to remind me to store a LM give me a popup greeter menu that just offers me one (I usually see them with group invite, store LM and no thanks options)

    I also wish Casper would offer to disable that delayed LM tossing on an invidual basis - same logics as above - I bought something there - please don't try to tell me where the store is after a purchase - do you think we are stupid?

    Pfft, I'm amazed it took a full 19 hours and a forum post, tbh. Throw a bag of crap into a ceiling fan pretty much anywhere in SL and it'll hit at least 12 people who'd submit to a ham sandwich if it meant they could wear something leather or sparkly. (Except for Gor, where the ratio is more like 500, and you are strongly encouraged to use more bags.)

    Wait - I have to submit to someone to wear leather and sparkly? Who says that?

     July 2008 states that the limit was/is 100 (if enabled, I guess - and per "island")

    + 10% premium bonus allotment + owners 

    I think the highest I ever saw was either 109 or 112, cannot remember the details though and yes it was laggy as hell.


    PS: what actually is posible is 400 people tuning in to the stream however (from other regions/outside SL)

    Tell me what plan is behind if caravans should be offered as premium homes, laugh, most of us want be treated like animals and caught in tight cages. xD

    Maybe once enough unclaimed caravans are around the LDPW can claim "New Linden Homes demand was met. Need proof? Unclaimed Caravans." ... :ph34r:

    On a serious note, no idea - Forums people are all crazy about them though - but I doubt a significant number will switch to them when the time comes. Only time will tell ...

    When I need to greet someone who uses funny fonts, I just open their profile and copy it verbatim and paste it with my greeting.  It's not worth it to me to be peeved over someone else's affectation, I just let it slide.  Life is short.

    I usually try to translate their gibberish to Latin script - I can read 4 non Latin scriptures - all those letters have a meaning. Much more fun.

  11. Maybe a typo, 40 would sound more believable - I never saw more than 150 avatars at once , not even at the firestorm major events area which would feature that 4 sim corner setup @panterapolnocy mentioned.

    However really crazy stuff like SLXB events maybe could have that big number

  12. I think it is a culture thing. Many guys from Asia and South America run the good old A/S/L? routine from IRC in their first lines of IM communication, revealing theirs unasked and hoping you would do the same. Voice verification to them might be just a reassurance of neccessities of politeness - too bad out Western definition of politeness might differ.
