Nothing out of the ordinary, then I go to link everything together and all of a sudden my entire house has absolutily no collision at all, despite any settings inside any of the prims. I even tried unlinking the prims again and the issue still persists. Is your root prim phantom ?
  3. Having been soundly drubbed in the original thread, you thought you'd start another - way to go, Storm...

The right way according to my methodology, but, again, that is beside the point and outside the scope of this conversation. You remind me of a temple priest in some ancient religion, desperate to keep his incantions and magic tricks secret from the peasants, lest they discover it's all actually just common-sense and deprive him of his free wine and virgins...

Storm Clarence patronised: /smiles yes, I have/do hack Ubuntu on some of my personal machines, but what's in a name -- pick your flavor! ;It gets no more modern than 3.3.7 regardless of flavor du jour (see what I did there with my French.) Doubtless deep under Windows there's a "DOS x.y", but you don't need to be familiar with it to run IE...

As are mine (see above) - perhaps you should add something from the 21st century to your 'experience', ju

  10. Storm Clarence wrote: {stuff} I've been running Ubuntu Linux for five years. It used to be a bit tricky in the way you describe, but that's no longer the case. The procedure I specified to install viewers works, time and time again. As for your "right way to run Linux" - so what ? we're not talking about a commercial implementation with hundreds of users here (a task in which I have some experience, btw), but a single individual home user wanting to run a particular piece of software for his own pleasure. It's perfectly all right to install trusted applications programs in your user

  12. Masami Kuramoto wrote:In fact Mint and its parent Ubuntu have become so noob-friendly, it's almost embarrassing. I'm at risk of losing my geek card. I have to agree with this - I have Ubuntu 10.04 running several different viewers on several different grids - and each was a simple case of :- Click on a web-page to download a file to my home directory, Click on the downloaded file to create and populate the required viewer directory structure, Right-click on the main script in the newly-created directory to construct a desktop shortcut, Then click on the shortcut to run the viewer.

Customers continue to spend real money on items which just vanish at random while LL just shrugs and says "not our fault". They do what the DMCA law requires them to do, doing any more would open them up to lawsuits from all and sundry. I wonder why LL doesn't decide it's time to remove the open source designation to the base software coding and put i
  14. To return to the OP's actual question, I have no idea why people put this on their profiles, there's no need. It's perfectly OK to 'Record and Save' chat logs - most people do this anyway, by default. What the TOS prohibits is subsequently revealing those chat logs to another person within the SL environment - revealing them inworld or posting them to these forums a TOS offence, but posting them to a 3rd-party website is not.

But that doesn't mean automatically that there is open sex allowed. On the word itself....I think there is a difference between adult and mature. Like saying to a 17 year old "Hey, you are pretty mature for your age" but still you wouldn't call them an adult. Old enough to see some boobies, but not allowed to see the whole porn movie. (Remember LL allows stripclubs on M rated sims). Feel better for being insul
  16. Syo Emerald wrote:This means, on a M rated sim, you still have the risk to meet people who haven't verified their age yet. Then they shouldn't call such sims 'mature', as they're obviously not.
  17. Syo Emerald wrote: Its funny to see how many scream up, because he considered to follow LLs rules, isn't it? Would you say the same thing when some other part of the TOS gets violated? Doesn't it make age verification (you don't need that to visit M rated sims) and adult land senseless, when sex is everywhere ok? I don't see what the problem is in the first place - sex exists, adults ( which is what I understand M-rated is for) know it exists - in fact they wouldn't be here without it... The suppression of sexual feeling amongst adults is done primarily for purposes of control ("you can

Are you in the GreenZone group ? A vendor of 'security products' has added the entire membership of that group to his blacklist, and is selling devices and huds which detect anyone on that list and report them to the device/hud owner as a greifer and/or hacker.
