  1. What's so strange about it? All humans move on four legs before they learn to walk.
  2. Hi LaGataLoca, Linden Lab eliminated several ways to make money and even ruined the land market, so earning L$ has become significantly harder over the years. That doesn't look to me like the Lab focuses on people who want to earn money for their 1st Life. People who earned a significant amount of money in SL were always a very small minority anyway, and LL never made a secret out of this fact. Most creators, club or shop owners etc. don't run their business to make money. They do what they do for fun. It's their way to play the game. Their earnings are often only a way to compensate a part
  3. Well, I'm not really hooked. I depend on SL because it's the only place where a SL avatar like me can live. The one who is actually hooked is my 1st Life avatar who created me - and got hooked on me. I was born when my 1st Life avatar got a new high speed internet connection and wanted to try it before moving to Guild Wars and create an account there. Joining Guild Wars wasn't free, but SL was, so it looked like the perfect platform for a test. My 1st Life avatar wasn't sure what I would be in the long run, if there would be a long run at all. So it made up a name for me that could fit to b
  4. Hehe.... my 1st Life avatar read this and told me I was almost just like little Erin when I was younger. I actually found that Mr. Right who got me a quarter of a sim, along with a sufficient weekly allowance and all those other little things a woman perceives as her basic needs, while her guy spends a fortune on his golden girl. In fact, I found that Mr. Right who gave me the feeling to be truly appreciated several times. Yes, I was a very material girl. However, over time just living like a spoiled brat coudn't satisfy me anymore. I needed a purpose beyond being admired by a guy and living
  5. I think you're right, Pussycat. Before LL reorganized the market for land, everybody could try to buy land for a good price and sell it with a decent profit. As a result we had lots of people who dealt with land and that was of course rezident owned land. But that kind of business is much harder now, because you have to compete with the constant flow of cheap land povided by LL, who throws abandoned land on the market for 1 L/sqm after a week, instead of leaving it abandoned and empty for a year, like they did before. LL's new approach also encourages people to abandon land instead of trying
  6. Hey KatKaif, can't you use your world in First Life, please? I tell you, if everything is free in your world and you load it up to 1st Life, my 1st Life avatar will move in at the spot!
  7. Ok, it's not the whole continent, but one third of it. That's still a big landmass. At least far more than what I would call "just a small part of it all", unless you refer to the complete landmass of all continents counted together. I still find it pretty common to see so many parcels for sale at a mapscale like this. The initial price for land was much higher in the past, but what really counts is the tier and nothing has changed about that. All in all the proportion of land for sale looks not much different to me than back in 2009, for example.
  8. Looks like Satori to me. Well, when you look at a whole continent, a view like that with lots of parcels for sale isn't that surprising. I think it was always like that.
  9. Hi Bratty, since you call it Showcase, I suppose you're on Phoenix or maybe Firestorm. I used Showcase every day to find new interesting places, but LL's changes made Showcase quite pointless. The spinning circles are no problem for me. The list is loaded in a second. But all you get is a small selection of destinations that belong to a particular category, not the complete list. If you compare the list you get with a category of the website for destinations, you'll see that the website lists far more destinations. In my opinion, LL made a terrible change to the worse when they redesigned s
  10. Well, that was a bad explanation... the percentage of other parameters is not changed, but their effect. Example: Head size has an effect on all subcategorys of the head. If you make the head smaller, the eyes become smaller too, even if you don't make a change at slider for them. They stay the same in proportion to the head, but become smaller.
  11. Each slider has a range from 1 to 100. What else could it be than percent? If you work on shapes, you'll notice that changing one parameter affects other parameters as well. They are all linked to each other, because you don't change total values, but proportions.
  12. So LL has a permanent record of everything I've seen in more than 4 years, huh? In other words: They've always monitored my client settings, like Draw Distance, Focus Offset, Camera Offset, Camera Angle, Camera Offset Scale, etc. along with my camera focus. And they will never ever forget that on March 23, 2008, at 04:31 PM, I looked.... ehm... at a wall. Well, I finally get an idea where all that server power goes in SL! I only wonder how many employees they need to review all the data I'm constantly producing, even when I do nothing. Oh, and I also wonder if you actually believe what you
  13. Hi Medhue, first let me thank you for trying to make the public aware of this serious threat. Well, I suppose you used a sound sample for your video, and the corporation had the copyrights for that sample, so it owned the sound of this particular wind. That's ok. A sample is a sample, and if they had the copyright, well... But I wonder if they actually had to prove their claim. Only YouTube could clarify this question. It's still easy to tell how crazy it can get in relation to SL: As we all know well enough, SL is full of content that possibly or de facto violates copyrights, and at any g
  14. By now I've somehow recovered from the initial shock and found time to read more about this issue... It was your blog, Prok, that made me aware of the term "SOPA" for the first time. But to be honest, I had no idea what it was. I only understood that it was an acronym for... a party?... or a hacker group?... or a website?... or what? I read some paragraphs without getting a clue about the nature of the topic, so I went on to read something else and forgot about it, until I discovered this thread and read it merely to get to know what the acronym means. Now I'm alarmed, and that's an understa
  15. I'm.... stunned! This is probably the most serious and vicious assault on worldwide freedom I've witnessed in my lifetime! You could expect something like that from regimes like China, Iran, or North Korea. But it's the US Government who's about to launch this?!? I don't know what to say... if nobody stops this... I'm too shocked right now to think any further..
