  1. Yes, indeed, and many of them are challenging and fun. And you can do whatever you want and on your own time. No expectations, no points to earn, no levels to earn, no dragons to slay. And lot of help. (Not just Maddy, who might set you on fire -- if you are lucky.) Start thumbing through the Knowledge Base (tab at the top of this page). And if you get stuck, ask in the Answers forum or visit someplace in world like Caledon Oxbridge University, where there are loads of tutorials and people to ask.
  2. OK, then, if it's only one, I'm with Scylla in #4 too. What could go wrong?
  3. Nope. That's a viewer function, not a LSL one. Setting Home takes just a couple of mouse clicks, though, so it's almost as easy as a shortcut.
  4. Hmmmmm... Got updated exceptionally slowly this ROUND.
  5. Not specifically in response to @Luna Bliss's last post, but this poem by Jane Kenyon has a similar feel. Like Mary Oliver, Kenyon finds solice in quiet natural settings and has a uplifting but not mawkish perspective. I read this poem at my mother's memorial service many years ago: Let Evening Come BY JANE KENYON Let the light of late afternoon shine through chinks in the barn, moving up the bales as the sun moves down. Let the cricket take up chafing as a woman takes up her needles and her yarn. Let evening come. Let dew c
  6. I took some long walks in the woods and listened to the birds, went out for coffee daily and to the grocery store every Monday at 7:00 a.m., and spent a lot of time in SL (and a lot of time doing crossword puzzles and writing poetry.) High points? ... Had hail damage to the roof and got a new roof for the $500 insurance deductable, and helped a young friend find a new job. Kind of a slow summer, but not a bad one on balance.
  7. "Good pay" is a subjective value. Don't expect to get rich, though. There's not much need for traditional jobs in SL, except for show. For example, you can get unskilled work as a dancer, for which you will typically earn tips. The best ways to earn L$ are with skilled work as a creator (a scripter, builder, animator, ..) or a performer ( a musician or a DJ ), but those require a fair level of skill in RL and often an outlay for necessary software or other tools. Most shop owners are also creators. You can also earn some L$ as a landowner, either by managing rental property or by buying
  8. By a very trivial amount, since a line feed character takes a few bytes, but it's not worth worrying about. Readability wins over any miniscule loss of memory.
  9. Just to be sure that you understand .... It isn't sufficient to link a PayPal account. It must be a verified PayPal account. The following information is from PayPal : How to get Verified: Log in to your PayPal account On the account overview page, near your name, click Get Verified Select the verification method you want to use Enter your information, then click Continue Click Confirm, then click Submit ❗️NOTE: PayPal Verification usually takes 2-3 business days in the United States, and 4-6 business days outside the United States. ❗️ If your acco
  10. Gone astray? Marut? Escaped, surely. SMART.
  11. In a nutshell, Land Impact is all that counts. It determines how hard the servers have to work to create, rez, display, save your objects. PrimCount is just that, the number of prims in your object. It's part of the total picture of Land Impact, but doesn't take into account scripts, physics, materials, and other factors that add to the total server load. For most practical purposes, you can pretend that you didn't see that number.
  12. I suppose so, but then you'd have to be careful to link all the components consecutively. You can do the job almost as easily by giving all components of each drawer the same name and then building a separate list of link numbers for each drawer in state_entry (list lDrawer1, list lDrawer2, etc.). Then, when you click on any part of the linkset, check to see if you touched a component of one of the drawers. If so, apply the set of movement commands to every link in the list for that drawer. It is mildly fiddly to set up, but you can still manage the entire thing with a single script in the
  13. That one tiny script moves all parts of the drawer. Just drop it in the root. No Magic. One click opens the drawer, the next one closes it (or vice versa). Depending on the way your drawer is built, you might have to trade X for Y, but that's easy enough. Don't link the drawer to anything else (like the dresser). If you do, all is not lost, but this particular script won't work. You'll just need to work harder to write one that does.
  14. The answer is to put one script in the root prim of the drawer and then use llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast or your favorite function to move the root. The child prims will follow. integer iMove = 1; default { touch_start(integer total_number) { llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(LINK_THIS,[PRIM_POSITION, llGetPos() + <0.5*(iMove *= -1),0.0,0.0>*llGetRot()]); } }
  15. It's not likely to be a big, complicated script, but it may be a little fiddly. Just post what you have here, and be prepared to maybe hand an interested scripter a notecard with more specific details, if necessary. The fiddly part, as you already noticed, will be identifying the proper links and faces to change. Since you made the head, though, you already know what they are. Price is always negotiable. Creative work is worth whatever you are willing to pay, and a creator's time is worth what she thinks it is. Meet somewhere in the middle.
  16. Your best bet is to post in the InWorld Employment forum to attract a scripter who's willing to get a custom script started for you.
  17. Moles are freelance contractors. Tanstaafl, but since moles are basically wormovores, lunch isn't expensive either. I don't know if there's a policy about gifts, but I suspect that most moles would feel awkward getting them.
  18. .... and replaces the dot over the i with a ❤️ wherever it appears. Cute if you're in grade school ....
  19. Quite right. Until you transfer USD out of your Tilia account, you're safe. If you are in the US and you transfer a lot of money -- I can't remember what the trigger level is -- Linden Lab is required to send the IRS some version of a 1099 form to alert them. The same may be true for the EU or other countries, IDK. Even if you never trigger that notice, you may still be responsible for reporting income to your regional (state/province/federal) tax authority, but again, only on money transferred out of the Tilia account. Consult your local accountant.
  20. Nope. The mouseover function does not exist in LSL.
  21. Yes, I know. I also know that as far as the U.S. was concerned, it was a "police action" until things really blew up in the early 1960s. Even in 1964, when I was in college, I only knew one guy who had been in Viet Nam. He would tell us stories about being there as a military "advisor" in Saigon, and we had almost no idea what he was talking about. It just wasn't on our radar. A year later, everyone knew. A lot of the guys I knew in high school never came back from Viet Nam, or came back very changed.
  22. Oh, you ARE a kid. This really stretches our story that we were separated at birth. I agree. I could never get into Gilligan's Island somehow. Dobie Gillis, though, was intriguing. For one thing, the Zelda Gilroy character was an almost believable girl nerd, a new role for sitcoms at the time. She was SMART. The show also piloted the idea of breaking the fourth wall by having Dobie step out of the narrative every once in a while to explain what was going on in his head. I had a guy in my high school English class in my senior year who could have been a spiritual double for Mayna
