  1. Maybe but Lindens arent just restricting their business to the USA and theyre obliged to follow the laws of those lands where they sell....as for US users if youre prepared to pay up for a company who won't refund or recompense you for loss of money...or charging you too much for - lets face it a SHABBY SECOND RATE SCREWED UP service good luck to you. Five years Ive been in sl most of it a regular paid up land owning customer.... well that nameless faceless supervisor that TJ Linden is hiding behind has cost Linden labs my business...Not to mention those technical jerks who should have shut o
  2. I cant load tickets to respond to them....Anyone else having this issue or have mine been 'blocked' somehow by lindens ?
  3. I think anyone considering membership of sl really has to think hard about those terms of service because it means if you are denied access to sl or have to stay out of sl as I have lindens arent going to recompense you...which is quite a loss if youre paying even a middling tier. I dont know if this sort of 'shirking of responsibilities' is allowed in the US but Im certainly going to have a long conversation with our relevant trading standards people here and we know from the v.a.t fiasco a few years back that if lindens operate in areas outside the USA theyre certainly bound by overseas ru
  4. My bandwidth usage soared my ISP immediately pinned down the problem to some sort of update in sl.... I'd ignored mention of pathfinding and lo and behold theres the cause.... My usage jumped from 1- 2 gbs a day to 10 !!!! Without SL (I dont want to pay my ISP any more which is what I'll have to do if I exceed my allotted 60 GBs) over the past few days my gb usage has dropped to 512 mbs a day !! Therefore I have no choice but to stay out of sl until at least my next months billing period starts in september. This means Im paying my tier fo only halfs a month use. Lindens arent doing any
  5. I bet these gamer bods are going to love coming to sl as is and seeing their gigas gobbled by pathfinding.... As Im looking to civ 5 on steam as an alternative to a rapidly declining sl I dont want nasty mega munching features being spread there thanks....
  6. I wondered who linden labs were getting ready to sell too......
  7. STILL UNABLE TO USE SL - THE MEGS PILE ON SECOND AFTER SECOND TO AN EXTENT WHERE I CANT STOP IN SL FOR FEAR OF RISKING MY OTHER INTERNET USAGE.... IN VIEW OF THE FACT I CAN NOT EVEN CONSIDER ENTERING SL WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF INCURRING CHARGES FOR EXTRA USAGE BY MY ISP I HAVE SUBMITTED A TICKET REQUESTING A 50 % REDUCTION IN THIS MONTHS TIER PAYMENT...I SUGGEST ANYONE SIMILARLY AFFECTED NOW DO THE SAME.
  8. Well I tpd from one region that was affected to one where pathfinding has been shut off and the drop was immediately registered on my usage meter.... But I suggest everyone try it for themselves download a usage meter and go to a region on mainland watch the usage rocket then try a region where its turned off SHADY was the region I went to and I didnt turn south east south west or any other compass alignment.. I walked across SHADY as soon as tp'ing in and the difference was immediate... but dont take my word for it...try it for yourselves... TURN PATH FINDING OFF NOW... :smile
  9. Still of out sl ...bumped to get an important matter ahead of the other 'stuff' on this forum....
  10. Oh and if you dont like my post oskar tough...I dont like my bandwidth usage being smashed to hell and faced with paying my ISP for extra bandwidth...
  11. Oskar Linden is clearly the kind of guy who wont admit a massive error has been made and that users are being inconvenienced BIGTIME... EXTRACT A DIGIT OSKAR AND GET THIS USELESS FEATURE TURNED OFF I WONT BE WAITING ROUND FOREVER FOR THIS ONE TO BE FIXED...Not like I have with numerous ludicrous boundary crashes for the last 5 years....
  12. Lindens are obviously in a panic about this I contacted live help a couple of nights ago and asked for pathfinding to be turned off in the regions where I own land...quite remarkably I was offered an island without paying the 1000 dollar set up fee...wish I could afford the monthly fee for an island .... It was also suggested I use the sl viewer instead of firestorm ...didnt make any difference and to set the viewer distance to 32...odd it only seems to go down to 64 on my version... but then again if Im building with a 64 m prim I at least want to be able to see the other side of it to b
  13. IT DOES HAVE AN EFFECT BELIEVE ME ...IVE COMPARED READINGS IN REGIONS WHERE PATHFINDING IS ON AND OFF...AND THE DIFFERENCE IS CONSIDERABLE. WHY DONT YOU TRY DOWNLOADING A USAGE METER AND TEST IT YOURSELF.. MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR BLOCK CAPS. I CANT GET INTO SL BUT IM STILL PAYING MY TIER AND PREMIUM ACCOUNT AND BASICALLY IM FURIOUS.
  14. All I know is that my gf went to umpteen regions where we own land last night none of em is magnum...Im sure she didnt go out of her way to orient herself in any particular direction...in every one her usage meter went mad...then she went to a region where its turned off...the difference speaks for itself. And even if the info is right who wants to spend their time in sl in specific parts of a region facing a certain way...ridiculous nothing its BLOODY LUDICROUS
  15. I want Lindens to shut off pathfinder across the grid...its clearly a major nuisance.... why should the option to shut down be available to some but not others... SIMPLE
  16. Its time someone at Lindens got their finger out started looking at the issues adversely affecting their clients and giving some infomration and actually BE SEEN to be doing something other than promoting other social networking sites and using them to dribble out info people want to see...
  17. Do you know how ridiculous your advice sounds ?? Read it back...stand in this region, face that direction.... we need action from lindens now ... I cant get into sl for the rest of the month..why should I pay a full months tier or a full months premium payment for that ...what annoys me is that this iss ue is of vital importance to users whether their usage is limited or not and we arent getting any info at all. By the way if this thread slides from the top I'll be bumping it till we get some much needed action...
  18. And yet the talk in the firestorm group at least was that Lindens wont bother ... What Im interested in now is whats in all those extrea megs being thrown at us. By the way you might enjoy wandering round sl using a draw distance of 32 m...what pleasure is there to be had in the amazing landscapes and builds in sl...viewer designers might as well just restrict the draw distance and the rest of us may as well stand in a 32 m hollowed out cube... basically the politest word I can think of for this is crap....
  19. Turn pathfinding off NOW until it works. My GB usage has been pushed to the limit by this rubbish which is absolutely no use to this user. Lag has also been apalling since it was introduced. Lindens keep introducing this rubbish and doing nothing to rectify the stability issues and financial issues which are slowly turning the entire map yellow. As for me, Im now trying to work out how many minutes a day i can now spend in sl....My ISP generously increased my allowance - at a price of course...but this month my usage is done for if I wandered into sl and stayed for any length of time the wors
  20. pATHFINDING IS A DISASTER FOR USER ON LIMITED GB ALLOWANCES FROM THEIR ispS ..CHECK THE jiras. The worst thing thats been introduced in sl .....
  21. Lol its no wonder Lindens can get away with lumbering us with huge tiers...theyre probably funding constuction of a space rocket to escape Earth and its untimely doom.......
  22. Oh so we're not taking these theories from New Scientist or an edition of Horizon not even Patrick Moore but John Moore who Ive never heard of....is he a scientist then or just another Jerry Springer ...lol
  23. Im surpised you take or recommend pills...Id have thought one read of the statutory leaflet in any box would put you off....after all you believe some voyage to the bottom of the sea episode scenario about the world being flooded....
  24. What in San francisco ? Pay me the costs and Im there.... you might find it pricey as I live in the UK though alternatively if you fancy financing a holiday for me in Llanddudno or cornwall....bring it on................
