    Click the BOM button

    Thanks. It fixed mine.

    Click the BOM button

    That's a very good question. I have been using that HUD for well over a year and there are still parts of it that I cannot figure out, like the entire Layers tab. The BOM button seems erratic to me too. Perhaps an instruction notecard would be helpful.
  3. In that case, Look at the top of the screen while you are in Marketplace, and then use the dropdown menu to set your access preference to General, Moderate, Adult.
  4. Have you clicked the option in About Land >> Sound on your parcel to restrict sounds to your own parcel? That should have the effect of blocking sounds outside your parcel from coming in too. I believe that option is checked by default on all Bellisseria parcels, but you or a previous owner may have unchecked it.
  5. I'm not quite sure what you are doing, but it looks as if you are breaking each line of data from the notecard into two parts: (1) the object name and (2) a string called count that contains everything else. Then, you are converting count into a comma-delimited list called sort, which you then separate into pieces and "cast the data back to their types and use them." You haven't included the important bit of code that shows how you plan to evaluate the various parts of sort, but I can tell you that if you are separating them by looking for commas, then you are ripping vectors and rotations into pieces. A vector like <13.56, 784.9, 500.10> will be interpreted potentially as a string ( "<12.56"), a float (784.9), and another string ("500.10>"), which is not what you intended. If you want to keep variables separate so that you can typecast them reliably, you can't use commas to delimit them. Separate them with "~" or "$" or something else.
  6. OK.... Not a recurring peeve but one that is appropriate for today.... Getting to almost the end of a week without major things going off the rails, and then watching things start to unravel at 2:30 on a Friday. It's not that weekends are really any different from the rest of the week, but my brain says that Fridays are for cleaning up loose ends, not for watching them spawn.

    IM spam

    Well, you could always set the spam filter in your e-mail client to toss messages from that object into its TRASH folder......

    You may be in luck. The group only has one member, which means that it will disappear within 48 hours. If the object is in a sandbox, the sandbox autoreturn should kill the object before that even. Keep your fingers crossed. Edit: Meanwhile, you could send the creator a polite note to ask him to clean it up himself. Assume that's its an honest mistake. You'll have better luck that way, even if it's not.\
  9. Not really. If your parcel were in an Experience, so you could use llTeleportAgent, you could do something like that, but it would be convoluted and would still involve being sure that they were in the Experience and had therefore implicitly given PERMISSION_TELEPORT. llEjectFromLand does not give you the option of selecting where it sends someone. It just tosses them out of the parcel. Using any other teleport method would involve asking for permissions, which a trespasser is unlikely to agree to.
  10. Right now the moles are devoting most of their energy to getting SL 17B ready to open, so they are not opening up one or two new Bellisseria regions a day, as they have been for the past few months. That means that most available homes now are ones that someone else has abandoned. As soon as SL 17B is underway, I think we can expect activity to pick up in Bellisseria again. So .... temporary low availability, but be patient for a week or so.
  11. Not at all. But then, I am not easily peeved. I just meant that it's interesting that the moderators haven't noticed how far the thread has wandered from its theme. It clearly hasn't peeved them.
  12. Um... no. That's a serious misinterpretation of particle-wave duality and crystallography, subjects that were at the heart of my own professional career. As far as sand and drum heads are concerned, all your example illustrates is a simple principle of wave harmonics that is among the first things that is taught in college-level physics and calculus. In the context of this discussion, crystals and drum heads are red herrings. I remain open to the possibility of tinglyness and AMSR, which seem like fascinating experiences that may be worthy of study, but crystals and drum heads are a distraction here. Actually, this whole discussion -- interesting though it is -- is a distraction from the pet peeves theme.
  13. Having had no experience with "tingles" or anything else that people in this thread have described -- up to and including kinesthesia -- I have no idea what gives. I'm curious and open to learning more while personally skeptical of anecdotal accounts. That's my own version of "I don't know."

    YAY! 😊
  15. No, I'm afraid not. I have often wondered what that must feel like. And yes, @Madelaine McMasters, I have used headphones while watching those YouTube videos. The sound is more compelling, but not tingle-inducing.
  16. I have listened to glass harmonica recitals several times in my life and have always been fascinated by the beauty of the music. The YouTube videos in this thread are lovely. I could play them again and again. Do they make me tingle or see colors or have other kinesthetic experiences? No, but they are beautiful. I have never had the tingly feeling that several people in this thread have talked about. The closest I've come to something I can imagine as "tingly", I think, has come each time I have heard Japanese Taiko drumming. I've had the pleasure of their performances two times in Japan and three times in the US. Each time I have found myself totally engulfed in the rhythms, as if they are inside me as much as outside. I suspect that's largely because they are very loud -- loud enough that you can feel the air throbbing deep through you. But no tingling. Perhaps I am defective, or not worthy. None of the other links in this thread do anything for me either. I've listened just now to a handful of YouTube performances, but none gives me the feeling of being surrounded by the drumming -- probably because I am not. YouTube is a pale substitute for a live performance.

    BTW, if you haven't already tried it, go to the mailbox on your parcel and click-HOLD it for 5 seconds or so to reset its script. Then see if its dialog menu rezzes a house for you. That reset feature is handy if the problem is right there in your own mailbox. If that does not work, then a mole or Linden really will need to do some triage at a higher level.
  18. Makes no difference. The same tool is in all viewers.
  19. You should be able to drag a selection rectangle around the object (as long as your Build/Edit tool is set to "Select Surrounding" ). Then unselect anything that is not the object you are looking for until only that one object is left.

    Submit a support case right away. The Moles usually handle those sorts of things very quickly, but they have to know where to look. Edit: And if you put up your own house, the Lindens or Moles will delete it as soon as it's discovered.
  21. I'm not aware of any such limit. Essentially, everything that's important to know about Classified ads in in the Knowledge Base article at Frankly, though, I suspect that most people who have land to sell post in the Land forums, where there is no charge for listing.
  22. Are some of them in Adult regions? If so, are your preferences in Search set to allow you to see Adult content? (Remember, you need to set rating preferences separately in Search, Marketplace, and your own viewer Preferences.)
  23. Yes, and that's both understandable and appropriate. A discussion without some level of emotional commitment is dry and likely to be both timid and unproductive. The thing to watch out for is excessive emotion, by which I mean letting emotion become the primary driver. If the goal is to WIN ( that is, to humiliate or intimidate the other parties), there's something seriously wrong. Indeed. Mark Twain said something quotable along those lines. I agree, which circles back to my initial rationale for staying largely out of the fray here. At the extreme risk of accidentally implying that I am thinking about any specific person at all, I am reminded of a sign that a colleague posted on his door many decades ago: "Never try to teach a pig to sing. It only wastes your time and annoys the pig." Once one person in a discussion assumes the role of a pig (or, worse, starts treating the other person as if she is a pig), everyone needs to step back and cool off. Personally, I usually choose not to join in the first place.
  24. And there we agree. It is the discussion that falls apart, leaving us no wiser than we started but having raised our collective blood pressure. As long as we can debate verifiable information and consider its implications, debate is healthy. That level of disagreement is what civil discourse is about. Sadly, too much of the political rhetoric in forums like this is mired in armed mudslinging about which village has the greater number of idiots. My own favorite guide, by the way, is Fisher and Ury's Getting To YES, which has gone through several editions now. Their recommendation is to avoid thinking in terms of "sides" and "positions" and to focus more on understanding what each contributor in a negotiation would consider an ideal goal. The challenge, then, is for all participants to work together toward finding a solution that will satisfy a goal they can all be comfortable with.
  25. As does the right. There are no angels on this battlefield. Rather than accuse either side of being more duplicitous than the other, I prefer to watch what both have to say and to make up my own mind about where the truth lies ( mindful of the fact that the phrase "the truth lies" is, itself, a loaded concept ). That's a very good point. In the context of this forum, though, a political "good idea" devolves quickly into "my camp is better than yours," with little room for reasoned discussion. As I said before, any argument I might add is already familiar to both sides and is not likely to persuade either to change, and there are very few undecided people out there. There are plenty of good ideas and bad ideas, but little agreement about which ones are which. Stoking the flames by simply repeating the rhetoric seems pointless -- a recipe for failure. I choose not to make a delicate situation worse.
