  1. Who could resist such a sweet-talkin' guy. Of course Bebe will rule in your favor and explain (gently, patiently) to her friends that you're not the dude they think you are. My advice is to throw a party and invite Bebe and her friends. That hot tub in the snow would be a good gathering place (clothing optional?--maybe not this party). Some good food, drink and conversation might do the trick as it worked on Bebe, eh? P.S. Don't ask why I know about that hot tub. |:
  2. Thank you for offering an opportunity to take questions. What about charging residents for each extra avatar created (a modest sum, perhaps USD10)? It's been raised in the past as one way to discourage griefing and other nuisance activities.
  3. The only items I've ever boxed are textures and photos. Since 2013, I have also given each item purchased (at the folder level) a MMM YYYY tagged at the end. Every six months or so I will sort through inventory and look at those things that are oldest and determine if I want to save or purge. If I haven't used or worn it in 'awhile', it is ripe for purging. My avie will soon be 11 years in SL and I have under 40K in inventory. Happy sorting!
  4. Check the Grid Status page on your Dashboard first to see if it's a problem that's being addressed. Many times it's just a temporary hiccup on your side.
  5. I realize that talking over tracks isn't everyone's cuppa tea which is why it's so awesome that SL has such a variety of clubs. There is literally something for everyone. If I go to a club and dislike what I hear, I leave. If I like it, I may remain awhile. There is no right way of doing things. Yes, the club is Ambrosia and it has been in SL since 2006. That is a record few clubs have. I wish all the DJ-aspirants good luck!
  6. Autumn because of the colors, cooler weather, and my birthday
  7. Your avie name, Pennytrated, is an interesting one. Just sayin'
  8. Oh he's not gone from the world, just a bit absent from here. He was always a gentleman when I interacted with him. I miss his presence here.
  9. My first friend in SL passed away 5 years after we met. A mutual SL friend and RL friend of his notified me while I was DJ'ing. Shocked doesn't describe how I felt. He was a wonderful, happy man. I know two others from my 'list' who have passed away. It's always a shock as it would be in RL. P.S. I, for one, miss Pep.
  10. I suppose you could look at this as an opportunity to clean your inventory.
  11. If you've tried Firestorm Support group inworld and their help hasn't worked, then I have nothing to add. I'm sure someone linked their page of step-by-step instructions: http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_voice Anyway, I remember when voice was rolled out in 2007. It was a sim-by--sim thing and the first places to go 'live' were the info hubs. A huge group gathered there to listen and speak. I sat with my friend waiting to hear the voice of our boss at the time who we knew to be a brash, direct person by her texts. Her voice did not disappoint. Sure, there were people who did not want SL to 'go voice' EVER but, over time, it's become a choice (as with so much in this world). So those who wish to voice, do. Those who do not, don't. No.big.deal.
  12. Sure, I'll bite. There's a curve. A soft, supple curve that's easy to reach. Doesn't require fancy yoga moves or gymnastics to access. And, it's a spot that some can miss unless very, very responsive to me. I can help guide: "lower, yes lower...just a little to the left. There!" It can come as a surprise, really. The skin rises up from both sides forming a soft mound. Right there, there in the center is where I'm most sensitive. So...very...sensitive. Reach that spot and I'll do just about anything legal, or nearly. Care to guess?
  13. Since I tend to get my left and right reversed, I might whack them both for good measure.
  14. FEMA should cover all US territories. I wish we'd been more prepared for this. Also, while the hurricanes are getting most of the attention, don't forget that fires are devastating parks and communities out west. https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2017/09/wildfires-rage-across-the-american-west/538977/
  15. Welcome to SL! Sometimes SL is unavailable because of issues with the grid (the world we inhabit). You can check for the Grid Status on your Dashboard page found at secondlife.com. Other times, a sim may be down and you cannot TP to it. Give it 10 minutes and try again. Other problems might be related to your side. The point is, these things happen from time to time but not often for most people, I expect, or they would not continue logging in. You can always check with the support staff if you are having a problem that won't go away. ETA: Rolling restarts do have a schedule. Again, check your Dashboard.
  16. You know that and I know that but he's a newbie so cut him some slack.
  17. Best visit clubs where you might like to work and chat with the DJs (when they're not actively streaming). There used to be a couple of places offering classes in SL so you could check search for them. Mastering the mechanics is not difficult, depending on the software you choose and the style of DJ you aspire to be. Mastering the 'banter' with patrons takes some practice and there is no class for that but your personality. Good luck!
  18. I DJ'ed in SL for just over 7 years for a very popular club. One of the requirements at that club was the owner wanted DJs to talk. A lot. This meant even talking over the tunes. I never ran out of things to chat about because, generally, the patrons gave me material. It takes a bit of practice and I wasn't so chatty at the start (2007) but, with practice, you'll get more comfortable.
  19. Oh that Sansar thread - yeah, it was moved and cool for that. I agree that you've gotta take it if you're gonna hash it out. *flexes* Thanks for the lolz.
  20. An opinion is just that, an opinion. Older versions of this forum were much livelier and more fun to read and participate in. It's all gone pablum in the last few years. Sad.
  21. Last Call. Curio. Shiny Things. That last was owned by an avie with one of my favorite names: Fallingwater Cellardoor. I loved buying shoes and jewelry there. I met her once in another shop and she was fun to chat with. Tuli skins, too. She apparently still has a shop on MP.
