  1. If your computer is so old that it doesn't have a CPU with SSE2, then you won't be able to enter SL with the standard viewer. Phoenix still offers a viewer that will work without SSE2, but that may be the only one that does. You can download it from http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=downloads . Look for the options labelled "Standard".
  2. Bonus prims are just a way for a private estate owner to concentrate a sim's total prim allotment in a smaller area. A sim only gets a maximum of 15,000 prims, and that allotment is normally distributed evenly across the sim. If the estate owner wants to build, say, a real primmy skyscraper in the middle of the sim, s/he can create a parcel there that has a bonus of 2.0 or more, so that s/he has more prims to work with there. That just means that there are fewer prims to work with everyplace else on the sim.
  3. There's no way to change your username. What you got was a new account. That user name is not associated with your old account, where your old av and all your inventory are. You'll need to work with Live Chat (if you are a Premium member), or maybe with the billing office to find your old account. If you want to try the billing office, it's a free phone call.

  4. I just found the answer, Redrock. It's a new bug, apparently introduced with a recent server upgrade. If you try to rez items in your parcel but the setting for Allow Object Entry in About Land is not turned on, the items tend to rez at or near to <0,0,0> in your sim instead. That's the spot at the extreme SW corner of the sim that is often called the sim's "garbage collector." A lot of lost items turn up there eventually. So, the way to solve the problem is to Allow Object Entry, at least until LL fixes the bug.
  5. It sounds like LL finally upgraded the viewer far enough that your old laptop can no longer handle it. You don't have to upgrade each time a new version is available. All you need to do is open Preferences and uncheck the little box that authorizes them to upload new versions automatically to you. You will probably do best to reinstall a previous version of LL's viewer or try a TPV. You can download viewers that LL still has available from http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Supported_Viewers. Third party viewers are at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory .
  6. I think the Warm Fuzzy Fairy and the Practical Joke Fairy collaborated on setting up this rating scheme for LL. If you post here often, every once in a while you get a nice e-mail like that but you can never be exactly sure what it means or what you did to deserve it. Life is like a box of chocolates ........
  7. It's impossible to make that judgment without knowing what computer the OP has. If it was working fine for a couple of days after the viewer upgrade, the problem really is nothing more serious than the graphics card drivers. Many people are seeing that message as they change LL viewers recently.
  8. I share some of your concern, Perrie. As Void and Innula point out, though, it's tough to see how to make some permissions revocable without, for example, breaking vendors that depend on PERMISSION_DEBIT being persistent. I can think of a handful of other LSL functions that can easily be used for evil but are indispensible for many applications.
  9. Once again, the LSL wiki is your friend. Study the examples at https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlGetNotecardLine , especially the first, very simple one. Reading from a notecard is not hard once you get the basics in your mind. It only starts to get tricky when you try parsing and filtering the information that you read. There are plenty of scripts in the wiki library or in the LSL Scripting Library here that you can get clues from.
  10. LOL.... He lucked out. I am having one of those rare, slow afternoons and was glad for a quick diversion to keep my brain from getting stuck in neutral.
  11. The wiki is your friend >>>> https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Alternate_Editors
  12. I mean any editor that you can use outside of SL. The editor that's built into your viewer is nice, but has crummy diagnostic messages so you have to guess at what's wrong.
  13. Well, let's see..... There's a random semicolon in an if statement at the start of your listen event, and a missing } bracket about ten lines below that. The variable named whichcommand is defined in a limited scope in the listen event but then used outside of that scope, where it is undefined. Needs to be global. Then at the line you marked as "bugged", you are using an else if without any previous if in the scope, so else makes no sense. There may be other problems as well, but fixing those will at least make your script compile. You probably ought to be writing your script in an exter
  14. You want to use llSetLinkAlpha instead of llSetAlpha. Then just identify the prim that's your flame and toggle it on/off by link number. See https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetLinkAlpha
  15. That user defined function would certainly work, although I usually prefer to inline a simple function like that integer RanNum = min + (integer)llFrand(max - min +1); // where max and min are integer variables defined elsewhere If you want to keep track of what's been used before, add each new result to a list and then query the list when you need to, as in @redo;integer RanNum = min + (integer)llFrand(max - min +1); if ( (Used_nos !=[]) < (max-min + 1) ) // (Used_nos !=[])  ==> llGetListLength(Used_nos){ if (~llListFindList(Used_nos,[RanNum])) // If the number is already

    script overload

    No, there isn't, and it's not true either. Scripted objects do not, in themselves, cause lag. The server time alloted to handling scripts is at the bottom of the priority list. That is, scripts use whatever server time is still available after dealing with sim physics, updating and communication with avatars, updating and communication texture information, handling network communications, and dealing with background things like weather simulation. Sciripts do not lag the sim; the sim lags scripts. There are two senses in which this is not quite true, however. One has to do with scripts th
  17. We are all SL residents here, just like you, so we cannot do anything but give you advice. There are no Lindens here. If the person has violated TOS and you have provided sufficient information in an Abuse Report, the Lindens may apply a sanction, up to and including banning. Otherwise, LL will not intervene in disputes between residents. Your best choices are normally: (1) mute the other person (2) ignore her (3) go somewhere else.
  18. You can mute any object you choose. That way you won't hear the spam.
  19. Moving them to a new location is the answer, Innula. V2 and Firestorm don't have any other way.
  20. There's no need for a complicated script. Put this in a prim and ask IVA to touch it (Whoever IVA is) .... default{ touch_start(integer num) { llSay(0,(string)llDetectedKey(0)); }}
  21. There are many reasons why you might get that message. Normally, it's LL's code to tell you that you have been banned or suspended. Your account may also have been put on hold by mistake, or for an administrative reason -- maybe someone else has been using your account for phishing or other unauthorized purposes. If that's the case, you should have received an e-mail explaining why, and what to do next. I'm guessing, though, that it's not the case for you. We've had quite a number of people with exactly that problem recently, and it has turned out to be either a router issue or a DNS proble
  22. Your camera is your friend. The arrows and circles are always centered on whatever object you are working on, and you can always center your camera on them by putting your mouse cursor there and Alt-clicking. Then your cam will rotate around that spot when you use Alt + arrow keys, and you can zoom in and out with your mouse wheel. All it takes is practice.
  23. That wasn't "Inspect". It was derender. "Inspect" doesn't do that. It's just for looking to see an object's ownership and other pertinent details. It can't make the object (or avatar) invisible. If you're using the Phoenix viewer, though, Derender is a very real possibility. So.... To rerender an object, you need to remove it from your viewer's blacklist. Access the Asset Blacklist from the Phoenix menu at the top of your screen. Click on the item you want to rerender, note avatars show as objects. Click the Remove button. Change your group tag, or teleport out and back. The object, or
  24. "Following", in this context, doesn't mean that the person is following you physically. It means that the person has your profile on his RSS feed, like seeing when people make changes to your facebook page. I find the whole concept of facebook pages and the loss of privacy more than a little creepy. Yes, it's possible that this is one way for the OP's stalker to be "following" her.
  25. Nope. If it's no-mod, you can't add a script or modify one that's already in it. If the object doesn't already know how to llDie, you can't teach it.
