  1. 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. If you do not receive items within about 24 hours, you should cut and paste the information about a 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 are very kind and willing to redeliver. This happens all the time and they are aware of it. Do be patient, though. Not everyone logs in to SL every day o
  2. It's hard to say why that happens without knowing what sort of error message you get. If you don't get any error message at all, then you aren't crashing --- you're disconnecting, which is probably a hardware issue. Reboot your router by unplugging it for a few minutes while you go make a sandwich or something. When you plug it back in, the router will get a fresh grasp on an IP address and should be a little more stable. If you've been using wireless, of course, get off it. There's way too much interference from garage door openers, cell phones, and "smart" appliances, all of which can e
  3. OK...I was prepared to give you the firewall answer, but if you are really sure that you have turned it off..... Try this (adjusting the details slightly if you don't happen to be using Firestorm) .... When you receive notifications, unless you dismiss them, they accumulate for later reading, in the small envelope icon on the lower right of the screen. Over time, they will grow in number. If you log out, these unread notifications are saved for when you next log in. If there are too many of them, processing them during next log in can cause a log in time out and you will be disconnected. T

  5. You may be the victim of statistics. LL rakes in a lot of cash from people who pay for special placement, and there are a LOT of people doing it. LL can't display all of the ads at once, though, so your ad might zip across the screen one time out of 50. If you don't happen to log in to the site during that one time, you don't see it. I made the personal decision ages ago to spend my advertizing budget on other things.
  6. When that happens to me (very rarely), it's because my ISP has been messing with something. I had lag issues in mid-summer, tore my hair out for a while, and then learned that my ISP had been replacing a bank of servers all week. I haven't had any trouble since. If you have done all the normal stuff on your own system (rebooting your router, getting off wireless, checking firewall settings, being sure that your antivirus program isn't scanning every blessed file that enters your texture cache, .....), then give your ISP a call.
  7. That doesn't sound like a message from your viewer. It sounds like something that your computer would say. When you have re-installed V2, Phoenix, and Firestorm have you done a completely clean re-install or have you been installing new copies on top of the old ones? The only way to be confident that you aren't passing corrupted files from one install to the next is to remove absolutely every file from not only your C:\Programs directory but also from the Documents & Settings folders that hold your Local and Roaming user settings files.

    how to ?

    Your home location can be anywhere on land that you own or rent, or that a group you belong to owns or rents. It can also be any Linden infohub. (For some obscure reason, my first home was a Japanese bus station. Go figure.) Anyway, you can go there instantly by typing CTRL + Shift + H . If you don't remember where your home is, this is a good way to find out. The search thing usually works, so give it another try. Type in SANDBOX and it will find you hundreds. Pick one somewhere down the list instead of one near the top. That way, you'll avoid crowds.
  9. Your Destination Guide is always there. It's in Search..... the Destination Guide tab. :smileywink:
  10. Good to see you back again, s32. I assume that this is part of the circuit board simulation project that you described the last time you posted here. Peter's right. Treat this like a real circuit board. You get the component in roughly the right place and its pins will line up well enough to plug it in. Just figure out how you're going to write if (pos == close_enough_to_endpos) and you've got it made. Hint: llVecDist .
  11. Peter's laid out the plan nicely. When you sit down to write your script -- any script -- take time to plant the logic in your head first. Then worry about the details of syntax that will turn it into a script. Think through the order in which actions ought to happen, occasionally looking back to see whether you should have prepared for them by collecting some necessary bit of information earlier. Start with the broad outline..... 1. Greeter detects person, looks at its watch 2. Greeter checks its list of previous visitors: Were any visits much than 3 hours ago? >> If so, remove nam
  12. Exactly what kind of help do you expect? If LL support says that the computer is not compatible with SL, they ought to know. The written specs are not up to date with the demands of the current V3 viewer. There are also factors that cannot be addressed easily in those specs, such as the problem that many laptops have in running SL from a chipset rather than a discrete graphics card. SL's support staff is aware of these limitations.
  13. If it's your land, you should be able to return the object to its owner. If you know where it is, select it, right click, and choose Return. If you don't know where it is, use About Land >> Objects to see the list of objects on the parcel, then highlight the one you want to return and select Return.
  14. It's one of many tools used to recover from some forms of ruthing, or bake fail. You can get the same effect by simply changing hair bases if you ever find yourself logging in and looking like a cloud. For more Ruth lore and a chance to look like Ruth, see http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Ruth
  15. Strange as it may seem, that message often means that you were wearing a group tag (title) with "illegal" characters in it when you logged out. That tag is preventing you from getting back in. The only solution is to get someone to kick you out of the group. If you can log in with an alt, IM the owner of the group and explain the situation. Ask to be ejected. If you are the owner of the group, you'll have to convince the others to leave the group so that you are the only one remaining. The group will automatically vanish within 48 hours when you are its only member. "Illegal" characte
  16. It's very tempting to recommend that you stick with a viewer that you already know works. Since you seem set on using the LL V3.03, though, try a couple of things. First go to Preferences (CTRL + P) >> Graphics >> Hardware Settings and UNcheck Enable OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO). That setting is supposed to speed up texture rezing, but it can have the opposite effect, especially with ATI graphics cards. If that doesn't work .... Disable AI in Catalyst: Right click on your desktop (or right click the ATI logo in the bottom right tray) and select Catalyst Control Center;
  17. When you sell L$ from your dashboard, as Lyra advised, they go into your $USD account. You then have to submit a credit authorization to transfer dollars from that account to your PayPal account. The payout typicallly takes 3 to 5 business days.
  18. Your immediate option is to post this speculation in the General Discussions forum instead of Answers. We have only answers here. :smileyhappy: BTW, if you think SL is a good place to invest, I have a bridge that you might like.

All joking aside though I wonder how many other users were also charged $L as it is only 1L it is easy for us to miss it, and how long has this been happening? Well, it's always comforting to know that you aren't crazy, George. Personally, I can't get worked up over losing L$1. It's about 0.4 cents, which is too small to count as more than a tiny annoyance. STILL, there's an injustice to it, and that is annoying. I do suspect that it's a software
  20. The point is still that you can't move the avatar unless it is linked to something. Then your script can manipulate the linkset.
  21. If you have a question, it's smart to start a new thread. Nobody is going to see it here. It sounds like you need to log in to SL at a Help center or at someplace like Virtual Ability Island, and learn some basic skills. Meanwhile, see http://secondlife.com/my/whatnext/basics/?lang=en-US
  22. That is strange, George. I just checked and I am also being charged L$ for membership in two groups that have never had a liability before, and which don't own any land. Something is odd here. ETA: Well, nothing odd at all as it turns out. Someone in each of the two groups had decided to put a new exhibit in search for a while, so the groups were sharing the L$30/week charge among us. That's fine. Glad I checked. I hope it's something similar in your groups, George.
  23. You can't move an avatar directly using LSL, so the only way to do it is to rotate something that the avatar is linked to. Treat it as a poseball exercise, as Peter suggests, and set the rotation in llSetTarget. Unfortunately, that means your avatar will be immobile until s/he unlinks again, so you'll have to do any other movements either by triggering animations or by moving that "poseball".
  24. I can make a wild guess at part of the problem. We each have an "in box" that collects any IMs, notecards, group message, group invitations, and objects that people have sent to us when we were not in world to receive them. That "in box" holds a maximum of 25 things. Once it is full, the system will not deliver anything else. Extra items are not returned to the sender, and the sender is not notified. The items simply vanish .... forever. Therefore .... If you received more than 25 IMs and other items and then your landlord sent you the group invitation, it's gone. Also, if you and othe
