    We may have a worse death toll but not a worse case fatality rate per 100,000 population than many advanced countries..We're at like 2.8%.. We're lower than the European union which is at 4.7%..

    With straight up deaths per 100,000 population, the only EU countries worse than the United States are Spain and Belgium.

    But, in reality most of the content doesn't change every second, or even every hour, day, or  month.

    I live in a mainland sim. Most content there has been the same for months, if not years. Yes, some has changed. I have wondered for years why SL servers don't have a way to flag changed content, so they know what needs to be redrawn and know that nothing else does. I've also wondered why locked content isn't flagged as unchanged. If these kinds of changes were made, it seems to me that the problem would be largely solved.

    I think it would have to do with the cache being relatively small. If you don't go anywhere but that region, it shouldn't be a problem. With a maximum cache of 10GB, it seems like stuff is going to get cycled out of it pretty fast if you do much more than stand around.

    I would very much like to be able to dedicate Fortnite or GTA V like amounts of storage to preload Second Life assets.

    All it required was a simple disclaimer that the intended audience was U.S. only but we don't merit even that.

    Maybe someone at Linden Lab thought that their almost entirely adult audience could figure that out without being told.

    As far as I know, yes (and I found some comments which is what got me thinking ). Not all cards will run all resolutions.   And I also know that when you switch from the native resolution (the default for that particular computer) to another resolution it looks really bad -- at least to picky artist me.   

     

    I found a few folks trying to run a 2560 monitors with a 1980 screen notebook and it wouldn't work - the 2560 option wasn't available. Running my 30 = 31 inch monitor at 1980 is not a choice (for me).  I did find ONE notebook that was 1980 but apparently with the ability to run a 2560 external monitor but it had several "no go" things I wouldn't like so it was out. I can't believe there is only one == but maybe.    

    There's a link to a full specs PDF on the tech specs section of the Lenovos Bree linked to, and the ones I looked at all indicated they were capable of driving external monitors at resolutions higher than 2560x1440. I don't use external monitors with laptops very often, but as long as I'm not trying to mirror the laptop's display, the laptop will usually let me use anything the monitor is capable of.

    Looks like the Lenovos while that have some good specs in there are 1920 resolution and that looks horrible on my monitor :D.   I "think" I can do what I want to do but as typically happens I usually want something "rare" ^^.  But lots to think about. If someone knows of a  2560 x 1440 please let me know. Thanks. 

    The laptop’s screen doesn’t make a difference if you’re using an external monitor, does it?

    In the U.S. we're doing close to a million tests a day and been staying right around the 4.7% positivity rate..

    Which 5% or below shows a slowing of the spread.. Hopefully going into the colder months it stays in that range or lower and not increase too much..

    Hope for the best, plan for the worst. It’s still way higher than 5% in many states. I don’t expect it to improve with colder weather,  but I’ll be happy if it does.

    So now our President and First Lady has tested positive and the ghouls circle. Can't say I'm surprised, it was expected. You know all this talk about karma...wishing ill upon anyone is also bad karma and bad juju even if you think they deserve it. 

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    It is what it is.

  8. Yeah, when I login to SL, the first thing I think is "this is probably what the Nazi death camps were like". Seriously, without naming and shaming, what kind of places are actually practicing serious discrimination? Like banning "an entire class of people" (and no cyborgs in 1920's Munich or formal dress at place that thinks Celine Dion is jazz don't count).

    20,000 linden someone accidentally sent you

    This is what strikes me as the important bit. It’s not logging in and discovering my L$ balance is mysteriously 20K higher than when I logged out. I know where it came from, how it got there and that it isn’t mine. I would think about calling support, especially if it came from some rando n00b, to make sure it isn’t some kind of scam. Like they bought $80 of L$ with a stolen credit card and were trying to stick me holding the bag when the chargeback comes. But in any case, it’s someone else’s money.

    But to ban an entire class of people, like all women, or all black, or all gay people, just because you don't like that class.. 

    That's not the same thing as restricting avatars to match the theme of a place. I can only think of a handful of places I've been to who have arbitrarily banned people on those grounds. Whether or not those places are okay with the TOS, I'm not really okay with them and I don't go to them.
