  1. No. We're all SL residents here, just like you. Now, can you explain what you mean? If you want to add more information to your question, click the Options link in its upper right corner and select Edit.
  2. I love trying to figure out where ridiculous rumors come from. All I can guess is that some newbie heard about the old Emerald viewer that LL shut down about a year and a half ago and then morphed the story into a present day intrigue. NO, it's not true. At this point, there are more people using Phoenix and Firestorm than using LL's V2 and 1.23 viewers. Add in the people using Imprudence, Kirstens, Singularity, and the other TPVs, and that's a lot of people. LL developers keep the TPV developers informed about changes in the V2 codebase and the server software that all of the viewers ha
  3. She never said that she didn't change her settings. She may have even changed or updated the viewer within the past couple of weeks, for all we know. If CPU usage is higher for SL all of a sudden, then something has changed in her viewer.
  4. Game? It's hard to tell, because we can't see your blue screen to tell whether it's a Blue Screen of Death (usually a hardware problem) or whether you have actually logged in underwater at <10,10,10>, which will look entirely blue too. If you want to add more information to your question (perhaps a photo?), click the Options link in its upper right corner and select Edit.
  5. The best advice, if you have the option, is to avoid wireless. Many people in SL have trouble maintaining a stable connection on wireless, with the result that they have a higher rate of crashes, bake fail issues, and general lag. We hear from a lot of those people here in Answers. The problem is partly that wireless routers are not optimized for continual streaming of data, and SL relies heavily on a steady data flow. Wireless is also vulnerable to interference from cell phones, garage door openers, other smart appliances and -- if you are sharing the router -- every other user in the dor
  6. It's just a guess, but you may be putting more of a burden on your GPU than you have been in the past. The GE Force 8400 is an old graphics card by now. It's been around since 2007. It's a great card, but it has only 512M of memory. If you have been running Firestorm with Ultra resolution -- pushing the limits with shadows, antialiasing, a large draw distance, and other enhancements, you may be making your GPU work overtime and increasing your disc cache and CPU activity. Try backing off on some of those special features and see if that helps. Also, go to Preferences >> Graphics &g
  7. There's less load on the servers if you do your filtering in the script itself instead of making the servers do it three times. My solution would be something like default{ state_entry() { llListen(12345,"","",""); } listen (integer channel, string name key id, string msg) { if (~llListFindList(["Object 1","Object 2","Object 3"],[name])) { //Do something } }}
  8. I assume that you replaced the dummy URL in this line with the actual URL for your calendar in Google, right? $Calendar_xml_URL = "http://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/myfeed"; 
  9. Popping up on your screen, or popping up in chat? If it's on your screen, just floating around, it's hover text. You'll need to locate the prim that it is in -- I hope that you have mod permission on it -- and either modify the script that generated the text (if it is still there) or add a script like this to replace it: default{ state_entry() { llSetText(" ",<1.0,1.0,1.0>,1.0); llRemoveInventory(llGetScriptName()); }} If it's not floating around but it saying its message in chat, you'll need to locate whatever object is saying it and then mute (block) it.
  10. You're out of luck. SL's graphics are based on OpenGL architecture.
  11. Hi Angel -- Thanks for you long and thoughtful question. We get many versions of it every day, so you are not alone. As a way of addressing the points you raised, let me offer two pieces of advice and explain why each one is important..... (1) Don't overuse the shopping cart. It is easily confused if you put more than a couple of things in it. Actually, that's not quite true. The shopping cart is a delivery mechanism. When you put requests in it and then click the BUY button, the cart then sends a request to the Magic Box of each merchant on your shopping list, telling the Magic Box to s

    If you look at the top of the screen to see the coordinates where you are, does it say <10,10,10> ? If so, you are displaying symptoms that may fit the description on this site >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=gesture_issues . Take a look and see. There's a good description there of a procedure for curing the problem, if that's it.
  13. You are not the first person to have that concern, Lola. Take a look at the JIRA in this issue and consider adding your own observations or suggestions >>> https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-3959
  14. As Dora says, study the function description and the example scripts at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetCameraParams. There are two parameters you'll need to adjust: CAMERA_FOCUS and CAMERA_POSITION. If you are having trouble with the script you are writing, post it here and we may be able to help you figure out what's wrong.
  15. I have to admit that I do not understand what you are describing, but you are clearly having some kind of disagreement with a sim owner. A landowner can always ban anyone from his own land for any reason, just as you can always tell anyone to get out of your house in RL. Unfortunately, there's no easy solution. If you think that there has been a violation of the Terms of Service, you can file an Abuse Report. If there has been no violation, however, LL will usually not become involved in disputes between residents. You will have to work it out between you or simply walk away.
  16. A bandage thingee? You mean a separate piece, like a sash or something? Or something that is drawn on the suit itself? If it's a separate piece, just don't wear it. If it's part of the suit, though, there's probably not much you can do about it. Maybe buy a new suit? :smileytongue:
  17. From what you said, it sounds as if you are crashing, not disconnecting. That's comforting in a way, because it means that you probably don't have a hardware problem like overheating or a dying router. It's hard to know exactly what the problem is, though. You can add more information to your question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and then selecting Edit. It might help, for example, if you could tell us whether you are getting a specific error message or if there's a a trigger than seems to make you crash (like teleporting, for example). Meanwhile, take a look
  18. There are many variations on the hunt idea. The basic idea, though, is to find a poorly-hidden sign somewhere in each participating shop and click on it to receive a free bit of merchandise -- usually something on the low-priced end of whatever the shop sells. You often also get a landmark, an invitation to join the shop's group, and a bunch of other promotional stuff. If the shops are lucky, you get distracted by other merchandise while you are hunting for the freebie and you end up buying more things on impulse.
  19. @Shockwave -- Yes, I agree, and I am as disturbed by it as you are. I don't like LL's decision to dump us into the Google-searchable world one little bit, and I will not defend it. My best response to the OP, however, has to be (1) Sorry, but you're stuck with the system, but (2) you can choose to disable a lot of it so that your searchable profile is as worthless as possible. I am powerless to do anything else.
  20. You can make your profile dead boring and uninformative. Don't fill in anything about your RL. Leave the Interests section empty as well, so that the system can't recommend you to anyone else. Then make your Privacy settings as restrictive as possible.
  21. If it says that it's attached, it's attached. It's also probably inside you. When clothing/jewelry designers make things that are meant to be attached, they usually do the final fitting on themselves or on an alt who is "average size." That guarantees that the object will attach in roughly the right spot for most people. If you are taller, shorter, slimmer, rounder, or otherwise differently challenged, however, it won't fit as well, so you'll have to adjust it. Stand on a pose stand so that you are immobile. Then, use your camera to look inside yourself to find the belly ring. (You're a
  22. No. As far as the servers are concerned, it is not moving at all. Any movement is apparent, confined to what is generated by your own GPU and displayed on your screen. Each person therefore potentially sees a different movement, depending on how her/his GPU handles the image.
  23. You ARE wrong. That's why I copied and posted verbatim the specific section of the TOS that says very clearly, "If you are at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, if it is greater), then you may only access areas of the Service rated General in accordance with our Maturity Ratings." It can't be any clearer than that: "YOU MAY ONLY ACCESS AREAS OF THE SERVICE RATED GENERAL". If you are telling residents under the age of 18 that they can enter non-G areas, you are setting them up to be banned. Incidentally, there is no such thin
  24. NO. That is flat-out wrong. See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Teens_in_Second_Life. If you are under the age of 18 and are in areas that are not rated G, you are in violation of the TOS and risk being permanently banned from SL. The rules are very clear. See the TOS, Section 2.2: " Users 16 and 17. If you are at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, if it is greater), then you may only access areas of the Service rated General in accordance with our Maturity Ratings. ......

  25. You may not have to submit tickets. Try contacting the merchants first. By now, the items are certainly no longer queued for delivery. They should show up (incorrectly) as having been delivered. To get a record of the individual items in your order, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. You should cut and paste the information about each missing item from that Order History and send it in a IM or notecard to the merchant, along with a polite message requesting redelivery. Most merchants a
