  1. The sooner LL do cut back the number of groups the better....then perhaps we might actually get group chat working I cant understand what anyone would want 40 groups for anyway...Group chat didnt work before the number was upped to 40 so what was the answer ...pour more water into the leaky bucket.....
  2. Here's my latest puzzling problem over the creation of the universe and its do the barenaked ladies suggest the universe stated to cool a mere 14 Million years ago....Im sure they say million and not billion....
  3. Funny how we never see any mention of whats being done to tackle these oft discussed issues and complaints then.....
  4. In my order of things lindens need to deal with - names comes just below the lack of prim toilet roll avaialbilty in sl - this is clearly another smokescreen to divert from the issues which do count....i.e. excessive tiers , lag, boundary crosses probs etc etc.. the same old stuff lindens have been ignoring for years.....and always manage to produce a non issue like this or a few meaningless freebies to brush the 'important' stuff under the carpet. This is typical blah about something for ages...get a mass of opinion and then ... ...do nothing.... Im sorry but in my opinion this ceo is a joke ...
  5. I thought that the universe was sneezed out of the nose of the great green god arkelseizure.... or was it created by a back fire from the engines of space station terminus.... theyre as sensible as any religious explanations if not more so...but I wont deface the headstones or blow up, or put fatwahs on anyone who chooses to believe differently.... unlike some I could mention who seem to think their magnificent god warrants death, destruction, maming and torture in his name...
  6. I consider this forum a place to voice my complaints about Lindens and sl which havent changed much in 4 years because Lindens havent dealt with the problems....Id much rather hear people voicing their concerns and opinions about problems with sl than some of the drivel that gets on....Perhaps LL might realise that because people are complaining about the same things ad infinitum they ought to get and do something... although considering it took nearly a week for the ceo to respond to birthday greetings to him on this forum I dont think anyone in LL is taking that much notice..... I vent my spleen all the same.
  7. Whatever the report is it wont mean much to you average sl user who is like myself probably sick of not being able to afford tiers or sell land at a decent price. Lindens will see the map resembling an enormous bowl of custard before they take the obvious move of reducing tiers and upping free land allowances. Still Im sure Lindens will be able to come up with a few freebies...how about that Wooden horse of Troy I see trundling along the Linden highway....but then I always beware of Lindens bearing gifts....
  8. Lets hope they put an end to these stupid names using all sorts of weirder figures and characters to... 26 letters of the english alphabet are good enough for most of the western speaking world......
  9. I dont expect Lindens to do anything - be it tackling excessive tiers, the increased number of crashes and tp failures ( odd that thats gone hand in hand with mesh introduction) crossing boundaries and least of all tackling a stagnating in world building system - but there'll always be an apologist for Lindens like you around to buffer any comeback from someone like myself who wants a better deal for his money.... If youre happy playing devils advocate for lindens fair enough.
  10. I dont like sculpties they never look like theyre part of sl for the most part, they take ages to rez and no amount of tinkering with the viewer gets them to work properly...
  11. Unfortunately by saying what is and isnt possible you save the Lindens from having to do the job. The In world building system is static. If you want to create and import fair enough - I want to build inworld and see what Im making there
  12. Probably because of the wealth of cheap textures avaialble within sl....and probably because more people use art/photo software.... not the same as building methods...you cant go and buy an inworld way of changing lindens building software....
  13. Id be happy with 99% hollowing of prims, larger prims, a new range of polygonal prims ( I think its barmy the maths you have to go through to get a correctly sized equilateral triangle) with a menu that correctly reflcts the sizes of the sides of the polygons and more ways of varying the angles. I also think its quite ludicrous that tapering prims can only be achieved through a limited number of axes and a fixed set of angles. The torus can only be reduced to a cetain width if you look at its cross section and the supposed 95% hollowing of the tetrahedral prim is still nothing like 95% rendering it usless in the construction of buildings especially in futuristic builds where a correctly hollowed tetrahedra would be a fantastic addition.... And when are we going to be able to add text to prims ?? I may not have the desire to become a whizz with the technology of mesh but I have the imagination to see new ideas and ways of making inworld building more interesting ...and that comes simply from the experience of inworld building and wanting to achieve more with a system whose basis I already know and understand and which I would be more useful to the majority of builders in sl...
  14. Start standardising skins and shapes - NO THANKS !!! Once you do that all the variety begins to vanish out of SL . You might as well give everyone a cube as avatar....
  15. I have no argument with anyone who thinks building outside sl using a mass of complex software and then paying to import the stuff they made is a way of being 'drawn into' SL ...my problem with mesh has always been - and its quite obvious - that while Lindens have promoted mesh it took away the onus on them to provide building software - even the lindens 'tutorial' on mesh was nothing more than a warning about copyright breaches - no advice on the software to use or how to go about making mesh based items ! It also caused a total stasis in inworld building with nothing new ( bar the introduction of 64 m prims as standard - still not big enough !) when we could be getting new methods of shaping and cutting prims, newly shaped prims etc. Lindens should be providing the tools to build with in view of the fees they charge and they should be adding new features to those building systems to keep the art of inworld building alive and vibrant. The introduction of mesh basically stopped any development with the inworld building system at all. And as a result in world building is becoming dull and repetitive..... Mesh takes away the pleasure of inworld building and turns building into labouring over complex software only to then pay to import something you dont even know is going to look good once it arrives in world.
  16. Good god is that a video card or part of a jet engine... I was lost after 15 seconds I think you'd need the mind of sheldon cooper to understand that
  17. I wouldnt recommend HP - I cant speak for the USA but over here in England Ive found their customer service appalling. I certainly wouldnt buy from HP again after my experiences with them.
  18. It will take a lot to beat my pal NonSmokerGirl Tulip, who normally assumes the shape of a Zebra (with somewhat less than sturdy legs), dancing to an accompaniment of Tiny Tim singing 'Tiptoe throught the tulips'. The first time I saw it I laughed my socks off. It has to be seen to be believed and its still the funniest thing Ive ever seen in my four years in SL.
  19. The thing that continues to astound me about this forum is the total lack of posts screaming for a better service , better value for money and better customer care. Its clear from the CEOs recent posts that Linden Labs have that same old feeling that people should bow down and be grateful they can spend their dosh on a service giving diminshing returns... rather than doing all he can to boost customer confindence and giving more to the long term devotee of sl rather than throwing out crumbs to lure in newcomers....
  20. Just get sl working properly and screw all the tech smart asses please......We had em whining for mesh and with what effect ...virtually none... Meanwhile the lag worsens, the crashes on tp worsen, the building menu is stuck in stasis without anything new to please the inworld builder. I want a bigger monitor to see sl on not something which harkens back to miniature screens of the 1950s tv set....
  21. Tier cuts all round I say...its the obvious way to give sl a boost across the board.
  22. I dont pay a tier to have sl blacked out thanks !!!!!
  23. Youve used that old chant before ...or some American has...we aren't all loyal Americans here...
  24. Perhaps if people went after the gun maker there'd be fewer people being shot in the world ...
  25. yes well it was you who made the first analaogy to winning and loosing so youre probably right...
