    premium membership is it worth it?

    Kurds dont have a country because they were double crossed when the Ottoman Empire was broken up, the result being Kurds are forced to live in an area straddling Turkey and Iraq The Kurds have regularily suffered at the hands of the rulers of both countries. If America had an ounce if honor and integrity and a desire to see the true liberation of oppressed peoples they would support nationalist movements around the world starting with the Kurds. oh and by the way.....

    no matter how many slots there are, for some people its never enough. I have 60 group slots but always keep half a dozen open for the inevitable group invite to whatever club i'm gracing with my presence that day. plus i regularily leave the deadest or most useless ones. Unless they are mine of course.

    im sure you'd prefer anarchy to law. too bad Britain took away your ability to defend yourself.

    why do the most successful capitalists become the most strident supporters of communism when they start to enter old age? is it massive guilt at being so successful?

    you must be salivating at the prospect of a one world government and the abolition of nation states. You should google "Georgia Guide Stones" to see the brave new world our future masters envision for us

    Why is it suggested that to reduce lag in a busy shopping event you are advised to chose "show friends only"? People in this thread seem to be saying it makes no difference for your computer if you let everything load, or only let the essential elements load. I myself always see benefits when derendering unessentials in a scene. You know one of my biggest beefs in SL? You go to a store and you are immediately told by a sensor that you have too many scrips and your arc is to high, so please do something about it because you are degrading sim performance. Meanwhile there is a lag sink water fountain running, and dozens of little cute animals bouncing around, not to mention the giant rotating searchlights. Animesh, as I said before, when it finally shows up on the main grid... derender. It's another of those wonderful SL "improvements" that will drag us deeper into the pit of unusability. At least if's attached to a person, it will already be jellied Jellydolls... with some of the messes I see running around SL, jellydolls are a big improvement.

    so should i let everything render and basically lock up or selectively derender unnecessary stuff and have a bearable experience? i would think anything you derender decreases the work your computer has to do.

    Your experience sounds like before i got my latest computer. When I first joined second life over 8 years ago, it was with a computer that triggered the message "your computer sucks and you won't have a good time, but we'll let u log in anyway". I could go anywhere, do anything, no matter how busy a club was, it was no problem. By the time I replaced it about 4 years later, my top frame rate in even a moderately busy venue was 2 or 3. It was pure torture. I got my current computer, kept my same settings and I was at around 50 fps. It was amazing the things I missed before upgrading. When i'm home or out sailing now I often set my draw to the maximum, it doesn't hurt my frame rate (throttled at 25). I jelly everyone because as I said before my video card fan failed and I need to baby the card so it doesn't overheat. I selectively render avatars, to check them out, and of course my friends are always fully rezzed. If i'm talking to you in a club, I can see you fully. When I replace my computer i'm hoping for the latest nvidea card, but even then, i'm not gonna max out my graphics settings, I might not even unthrottle my frame rate, it's totally not necessary for a social platform. Oh, and every animesh I see when it hits the main grid, I'll derender, and half the battle against lag will be won. I really don't need the oooo factor, SL works just fine as is.

    Jelly them all and only render those you interact with, that's what I do

    Change, if it is a big improvement, is good. Change just for the sake of change, maybe not so much. Incremental improvements are just a money pit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaOgZwk9rN8 I laughed at all my friends with their mesh feet and mesh hands and mesh breasts (or was it prim breasts?), but when a complete mesh body that responded to sliders made change worthwhile, I was all in. Now I laugh at their obsession over mesh heads. When they finally make one that will allow me to match exactly my system head, then i'm all in once again. Seriously, how many mesh heads can one person buy?

    Summing Up Bloodlines

    I always wonder if a soul is really lost when a vampire scans someone, or is it just another sneaky way to get a bite. Oh you poor dear, a spampire bit you, your soul is in limbo. Here, drink this potion, then I'll bite you and your soul will be restored TO ME. You have the hud, your liege paid for it. As a human it costs you nothing to play the game. If you like the clan members, there's no harm in staying

    I will admit the one "positive" aspect of bloodlines is that it offers a family to confused or lonely people.
