  1. The way to find out is to look at your Transaction History. Go to secondlife.com and look under Accounts in the bar on the left side. Absolutely nobody can take L$ without your permission, so you have given permission to someone. Find out who and stop it, if it's not something you wanted (like your rent, for example). If you can't, call the LL billing office and get them to help. LL's Billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  2. Currently, you can create: Up to five accounts per household. No more than two accounts in a single 24-hour period. How are the limits enforced? Nobody knows. Here's LL's official word: "Linden Lab has various means of detecting illegitimate accounts and enforcing necessary limits to prevent fraud and other disruptive uses of Second Life and LindeX services. For security reasons, Linden Lab does not reveal exactly how fraud detection processes operate.

Don't you have that same problem with your current method? Unless I'm missing something, you'll get extra seats in inventory that way too. Why not make the seat temp_on_rez? It won't vanish if you attach it before the garbage collector gets it (about a minute). When you finally detach it, it won't go to inventory. It will simply poof out of existence. Just out of curiosity, didn't we have this same conversat
  4. Almost all good shoes in SL today are sculpties. A few are mesh objects, but those are very new and scarce. To make either of those means developing some skill with a 3D modeling program like Blender or Maya and then importing your creations to SL. Many modelers offer kits of sculpty shoe parts in Marketplace or in-world shops that you can use to assemble your own shoes, if you don't have the modeling software or the skill (or time) to make your own. It's also possible to make prim shoes, which is the way all shoes were made until about 3 years ago. You can find many of those in freebie s
  5. The instructions at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=media&s[]=webkit are very helpful, regardless of which viewer you are using. Take a look.
  6. Everyone uses their computer differently and expects different things out of SL, so it's hard to say why you have more lag than the next person. There could be hardware reasons (some costly graphics cards just can't process images as fast as some cheaper ones), or it could be your physical setup (maybe you're using wireless, which drops performance for a lot of people). It could be your Internet connection ( a slower cable vs an optical fiber, or an ISP that throttles bandwidth at busy times of the day). Maybe it's the settings you are using in Preferences( too large a draw distance, using sh

  8. Well, you could script your chair to rez a pose ball for the other person to sit on. It wouldn't be linked to your chair, so if you moved, the poseball and its occupant would stay behind. Still, most recliner chairs don't move around much, so it could work. If you decide to go that route, I'd make the pose ball temp_on_rez so that it dies after the person stands up. That way, you don't have to worry about cleaning up leftover poseballs all the time.
  9. I think Lyra has the right answer. Emergence hasn't been updated (maybe even maintained) since it was released over a year ago, I believe. You'll do better to try a different viewer.
  10. Yes, there are extremely annoying bugs in the mesh viewers now. I think the best solution for you is to remove absolutely all of the V3 and Firestorm viewer files on your computer and re-install ONE of them (or revert to an earlier version). If you reinstall when you have borked versions of the viewers on your computer, you'll just inherit some of their problems. See the instructions for a Clean Reinstall at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_clean_reinstall . They give good directions for Mac and Linux platforms as well as PC. If you still have problems but can at least get
  11. Aside from shopping in world, which I recommend too, the other way to have a better shopping experience is to avoid buying more than one or two things at a time. The shopping cart is fine, but it relies on an out-of-date system of Magic Boxes to do the actual product delivery. If you put very many things into the shopping cart, the system can lock up and not deliver items. I rarely buy anything in Marketplace at all, but when I do I never put more than a couple of things in the cart.

    "Ghost" prims are very rare. You can't see them, even with CTRL+Alt+T, but you can trip over them. They don't persist for long, especially these days, because a server restart wipes them out. Recently LL has been restarting the sims about every week or two. Did you try using Firestorm's Area Search? That will find anything, even those pesky prims that disappeared to 500m in the air when you mistyped a number in the edit window.
  13. Atlassian? Why would you want to deal with them? That's the software company that makes the bug tracking system (JIRA) that LL uses. If you think you have found a bug, you need to report it to LL >>> https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/?
  14. Certainly, if you rez the seat as soon as the person gets into the plane. It's the script in the ejection seat that is asking permission to attach, and it can't ask until it exists. So, sit down >> rez seat >> get permission >> attach seat >> wait for eject command >> get eject command >> eject.
  15. If you are in SL yourself, just send him L$ by clicking on his profile and selecting Pay. If you're not, deposit RL money into whatever account he defined for payment information when he registered for SL. For example, if he's using a PayPal account for buying L$, send a few dollars to that account. He'll be able to draw on it as needed. (Of course, he might decide to use the PayPal account to order an outrageous T-shirt on line instead, but that's the risk parents take with teens.)
  16. BTW, I assume you know that you don't need to rename the files at all...... If you drop two or more copies of the same item in an object's inventory, the extra ones will automatically have a number appended to them (sound, sound1, sound2, sound3....).
  17. Well, for one thing, the sound files will be playing in alphabetical order, because that's the way they are always stored in inventory. If you want to change that order, you'll need to rename some of the files. The gaps, though, don't have anything to do with the script, as far as I can see. After all, you can play your four files in a continuous loop, as I can when I test it with four sound files here. It sounds like the dead sound files themselves -- the numbered copies that you made --- are borked, but I'm momentarily at a loss to explain how.
  18. If you get an "Object Missing From Database" error message when you rez an item from your inventory then sometimes the system notices this error and is able to automatically recover your missing object. However, in order to see if Second Life was able to recover your missing object, you will need to wait one hour, clear your cache as described in Clearing Second Life's cache, logout and then log back in and look in your Inventory Window to see if the item has reappeared.  The steps above can often recover inventory that appeared lost. If you have a Premium account, you may also submit a case
  19. You can't do that with standard prims. All normal prims in SL have sharp edges (well, OK, except for spheres and torii). If you want smooth edges, you'll need to create sculpties or mesh objects. For that, you'll need to use a 3D modeling program like Blender. Unless you are prepared to climb the learning curve to figure out how to do that, the easiest solution might be to shop for packages of prefab sculpty shapes. Visit someplace like Builder's Brewery in world or look on Marketplace.

  21. Wait a week. You're only allowed to change your Display name once every seven days. You can Reset your name, of course. Doing that sets your Display name to your username, the official name that you use when you log in.
  22. There are many causes for bake failure, so the same one won't work for everyone every time. Go to http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail and start trying things, startring at the top of their list and going down one at a time until you find the one that works for you. Something always does. BTW, those suggestions work for any viewer you may be using.
  23. It probably doesn't know that you are the owner. A well-written script that contains any functions which depend on the owner should always include a changed event that looks like this ... changed(integer change){ if(change&CHANGED_OWNER) { llResetScript(); }} That will force the script to reset itself if the object changes owners (as when you give it to an alt, or vice versa). If it's not there, the script will remember who the owner used to be, and only listen to that person. So .... if you can't modify the script or don't care to, just select the object and use Build
  24. LOL... I can relate to OCD. Welcome to the clubhouse. So, you have discovered that CTRL+Alt+T will help you find transparent objects. It doesn't help find objects that are inside other ones or that are really tiny. So, Click on your Build menu at the top of the screen. Select Options and be sure that the Select By Surrounding option is checked. Then type CTRL + 3 to open your Build edit window and drag a selection rectangle around some suspicious-looking area. Anything inside the rectangle will be selected, even if it is inside another object. If it's tiny, you may want to zoom in to
