  7. Finity's End is a far traveling ship, and wide space is the deep that she knows, Infinity's black is the emblem she wears, and never a mark does it show. And no sun can hold us or keep us for long, for Infinity is ours and Infinity's free And no star can own her, and no worlds her own, for Finity's End is she.....
  8. and that's the reason I always brace them... code insertion
  9. eh, sort of... it's an action recorder, so what it really does is record keystrokes (not sure if it records/sends non-ui clicks). it's used mostly for debugging so that actions that may be differentiated by settings can be troubleshot (troubleshooted?) in reproducible steps. I don't remember what you have to do to make it work, there used to be an unofficial guide somewhere.
  10. sort of... it's what the regions cling on to theoretically, a server of 8 cpu cores hosts either 7 full regions... or at least 21 (and probably 28 @ 3-4 per core) homesteads, the last core is reserved for management utilities. the cost of the server for LL is the same either way, and the traffic bandwidth consumed is theoretically comparable (but may in fact be higher for homesteads), but each of the 3-4 homesteads on a core affects the others (lag one, the others feel it, crash one, the others may go with it)
  11. actually they make more cash per server core on homesteads.... problem being, homesteads are by nature less stable, since they are packed in multiples, which makes troublleshooting and service a problem... I don't ever expect SL to break out of the niche market until they can come up with a lower cost solution to connecting to other grids securely, and a way to manage those connections in a sane manner. until then there's not enough portability to scale up much further.
  12. you folks realize that his particular thread has been dead for 2 months... right?
  13. my guess would be that it's a preliminary survey, not looking for specific results, but rather hoping to uncover something interesting for a more specific follow up. for that sort of thing it's more like window shopping than a grocery run randomness of a degree is encouraged. kinda like knowing you're hungry and craving something, but can't quite pin down what =)
  14. Well, better Ionescu than Brecht, we've already got a resident marxist. although I must admit that announcing your intention prior to execution bears his "epic" style.
  15. near clip may be disabled... I forget the setting but it has to do with stopping the camera from being affected by walls
  16. meh, that's not real alcohol... heck it's not even real beer, but rather the sort of water that makes yellow snow.
  17. Carole Franizzi wrote: Bravo! Bravo!!!! *applauds* This is part of the performance, right? That was my impression.... although pre-trolling isn't very impressive as an art form IMO, made less so by stealing the fun of puppy correcting absurdists that don't know they're being absurd.
  18. While I can appreciate in the technical sense that things like WoW are virtual worlds (in the sense that they represent a translated non physical landscape) you'll meet plenty of resistance to that definition due to the nature of their frameworks (designer driven, vs user driven goals/content; or even closed vs open systems). With that in mind, my only advice is to bear in mind that the relationships formed in those different frameworks will also have different tendencies in contrast with one another, just as there are different tendencies among the environments themselves, and the forums that represent them. Given your focus above, various frameworks may have a large impact both on available relationship type and qualitative identification within the environments (an aspect I feel many studies miss, downplay, or overlook). please note I am not in the psych field myself, though I do try to keep up with the general state of it through friends that are, so feel free to ignore this if it isn't applicable to your ultimate goal.
  19. The reason you don't see them in marketplace is because unless your particles are fairly close packed (stays near source), low density (not many on sceen at once) and long lived (stick around a while individually), what you end up with is bands of different textures. For a looser, higher density, or shorter lifetime setup you really need to use multiple emitters to get a display that really looks random (just remember to divide your particle output by the number of emitters)
  20. you're right... maybe that was too harsh.... I'll give em back.... just don't expect me to be responsible for loss of business or credibility
  21. no, I just imposed SOPA on them, after all... it's it's part of my name and my brand =P
  22. depending on the build you won't be setting all child prims to no physics. in some case people are reporting that setting only one or two children to use physics accounting (eve physics:none) increases the PE above the prim count. in the more complex case you may have linked meshs or children using something besides default physics shapes.... the volume detect hack will never lower PE below prim count, but may prevent raising it in situations where mixed physics might lead to a rise using just a physics:none shape on that prim. experimenting with torii or cut shapes might be the place to find where that makes the most difference
  23. Light is a lie. It shows you only a little of what's hidden in the dark, and will blind you to the truth past it's borders. Use it, but do not rely upon it. There is a moment when all lights fail.
  24. when it results in a lower PE than using physics shape.... which is dependent on the build.
