  1. Oh, yes, but SVC-7283 was fixed with the last server upgrade. It was the only large issue that made it into that one. See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Server/Deploys-for-the-week-of-2011-09-26/td-p/1127467
  2. Look in theTransaction History in your dashboard at secondlife.com >> Accounts to find out who you have been paying the liability to. It's probably a group liability for some group that you belong to -- your share of the group's expenses for advertizing events in Search, perhaps. You can ask the group's owner about it, or you can simply leave the group if you don't want to continue paying your share.

I am looking at this page here: https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ and cannot find an appropriate option to file the ticket under. Can you help with this matter? I'm finding the whole process incredibly frustrating. You have replied in exactly the right way. We have tried to get LL to build in a better system, but this is what we have to work with for now. :smileysad: You're right that there's no obvious category for your question in the pulldown m
  4. If you are the owner of the group, then you have total control. That's what the Owner role entails. If the group is really dead, you should be able to eject everyone else. At that point, you will be the sole remaining member and the group will cease to exist after 48 hour. If it really is true that you have no control, then either (a) you are not really the owner or (b) the group is borked. I think your only choice is to file a support ticket and ask LL to get rid of the group (or just live with it. That won't be the only extinct group in SL).
  5. You'll probably get a quick answer if you post your question in the Mesh forum >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Mesh/bd-p/Mesh . In fact, before you do that, spend some time reading in this sticky thread >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Mesh/Mesh-enablement-trouble/td-p/1010933 . Your answer may already be in there.
  6. Unfortunately, SL has a long history of problems with ATI graphics cards. Try the suggestions at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=ati to see if they make a difference for you.
  7. Step #1 is to learn how to build anything in SL. Mesh is fine, but if you don't have basic building skills in your toolbag, you won't have a clue what to do with the mesh once you import it. Visit the Ivory Tower of Prims in world. Spend a lot of time with their tutorials and then a lot more time practicing in a sandbox. Step #2: Take a look at the tutorial videos at http://blog.machinimatrix.org/3d-creation/blender-meshes-trail/ . Gaia Cleary does a beautiful job showing how to create mesh objects with Blender. Her videos show the process from start to finish, including how to optimize
  8. No, but you should only get charged for the current month. The way to get the best answer, however, is to ask the billing office. Make a free phone call. LL's billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week......... Toll-Free (US/Canada) 800.294.1067 Long-Distance 703.286.6277 Local Toll-Free numbers * France: 0805.101.490 * Germany: 0800.664.5510 * Japan: 0066.33.132.830 * Portugal: 800.814.450 * Spain: 800.300.560 * UK: 0800.048.4646 * Support is in English Only
  9. Well, you have a couple of choices. One is to try and resolve the DNS issue: (1) Try shutting off your computer, unplugging the router and modem for a couple of minutes, and then plugging them back in and restarting. That simple step may clear up everything (2) If that doesn't work, see the solution here: http://neilrobinson.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/a-fix-for-dns-errors/. Basically, it amounts to adding additional DNS servers to your DNS settings in Network settings under System Preferences. Instead of using the ones recommended in that article, I suggest using the Google free DNS servers
  10. There are no ghosts. LL resolved that problem with a server upgrade back in March 2011. Please describe the situation that you are experiencing. A sim restart may not be the appropriate solution. You can add information to your original question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting EDIT.
  11. I can't get in world to check whether I'm having that problem today too, but I have had it happen in the past a few times. It seems to be a server issue. At least it clears up after a while as mysteriously as it started. LL will be doing server maintenance all this next week which, they say "will require an extended period of region restarts. " I think the best idea is to sit back and wait until they're done before you panic.
  12. Unless I have missed something over the past 4 years, that's not an option in Marketplace. You just have to be obsessive about looking at your listings every once in a while.
  13. A shoe base won't make your ugly feet invisible. That's not what it's for. If you are using an older viewer that does not support alpha clothing layers, you'll need to use invisiprims to hide your feet. Most shoe designers used to build them right into the shoes, but today's designers often don't bother, so you'll have to do it yourself. Here's an invisiprim... default{ state_entry() { llSetTexture("38b86f85-2575-52a9-a531-23108d8da837", ALL_SIDES); }} Rez a prim, shape it to the appropriate size and shape to cover the heel of your shoe, and then drop the script into it. Voi
  14. How's video streaming? If you're having trouble with it too, the problem may be with slplugin.exe. Relog and open Search Go to your computer processes and look for “slplugin.exe” For Windows users, go to Task Manager → Processes Tab For Mac users, go to Activity Monitor → My Processes (usually by default, but you can check top right drop down) For Linux users, go to Command Terminal, and type “ps aux” You may see four instances of the slplugin running (that is normal behavior) If you do not see any instances of slplugin running, that is the cause of media failing If slplugin is not running
  15. If your camera is suddenly pointing straight up - or straight down - or some impossible direction, then try these: Press escape a few times. Pressing escape will clear focus from any windows that have focus, and finally, will reset camera position.Go to Advanced → Show Debug Settings and enter “FocusOffsetRearView” 1) in the input field. Click “Reset to default” at the bottom.Press Ctrl-9 - a few times even.If that doesn't work, hold down Shift, then use the mouse wheel to change the camera angle.If all of these fail to work, then the only remaining solution is to reset all your settings to d
  16. Hi, Ms Cuten -- This is a public forum. It would be a very good idea to take your e-mail address out of your question here. That's a nice way to invite spammers to flood your mailbox. Meanwhile, the answers to most of your questions are right here >>>> http://secondlife.com/support/quickstart/basic . Start reading and welcome to Second Life :smileyhappy:
  17. I like it, Pete. It makes the garbage collection cycle more compact and eliminates the need for a timer event. It also introduces llRegionSayTo and llListRandomize as alternative ways to handle those tasks. If nothing else, I hope the OP sees that there is more than one way to handle almost any scripting challenge. The method you choose ought to be the one that's most efficient and best matched to the setting where it will be used. In a very low traffic environment, in fact, a greeter script like this might not need a garbage collector at all. It would simply check each new visitor against
  18. It depends on how much work you want to do. If you are satisfied with slapping a pic on a prim, that's all you have to do. Save the snapshot to your inventory and then drag/drop it on your prim's face. If you want to do any post-processing (editing out things, changing color balances, etc.) your have to save to your hard drive and do the work with Photoshop, then upload again.
  19. As others have said, contact each merchant and ask for redelivery. It's a pain, but they are used to it and most are pleasant about sending you your items. Not that it helps now, but to remember for the future: (1) Don't overuse the shopping cart. It is easily confused if you put more than a couple of things in it. (2) Don't buy things from Marketplace (especially LOTS of things) unless you are in world to receive them at the time. We each have an "in box" that holds IMs, notecards, group notices, group invitations, and anything that is delivered to us if we aren't in world at the time.
  20. Well, ... (a) it's a weekend, (b) it's barely October, and © I don't think there's ever been a guarantee that the periodic "virtual good" for premium membership is on a strict monthly calendar. Be patient. :smileywink:
  21. You haven't offered much information, so it's almost impossible to guess what the problem is. When you get "loged out," do you get an error message of some kind? What are you doing when that happens? What have you tried already?
  22. Have you checked to see whether you have an antivirus program or a firewall that is blocking access to some of SL's functions? Take a look at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configure_your_software_firewall to see what's involved.
  23. No matter which viewer you choose, there is only one file to install. Once you download it, just double click on it. The viewer will install itself automatically.
  24. You may be asking your computer -- or at least your graphics card -- to do too much. You can open Preferences from the login screen without actually logging in. Just type CTRL + P and it should open. Then go to the Graphics page. Make sure to click the Advanced button so that you can see all the parameters, then ..... (1) Reduce your draw distance to something like 64m. (2) Disable shadows (3) CLick the Hardware Settings button and (a) turn anisotropic filtering and antialiasing OFF and (b) UNcheck Enable OpenGL Virtual Buffer Objects (VBO) Then, log in to some nice low-lag place like
  25. Thanks, Chosen. Those are the sorts of things I'm trying to decide, and I do appreciate your wise words. I'm not a big-time builder -- I spend more of my time scripting these days -- so I don't have to rush into retooling for mesh, just as I didn't rush into sculpties at first. Until a higher proportion of residents have a mesh-enabled viewer (and until LL can manage to make theirs reliable) the market won't be beating my door down with demands for mesh stuff anyway. Still, I see the future on the near horizon so I want to get my head around these important issues. Thanks again. And, aga
