  1. Now that he has the items and they are in his vendors, he is the owner. He can do anything he wants with them. As far as I can see, your only way to beat him at his game is to do what one major shoe designer did three years ago (1) Offer the items yourself for free (possibly with a discount coupon for some other great item, to make the freebies move fast) and (2) Develop a completely new product that will outdo anything you made before and gave to him.
  2. You might post this question in the Fashion forum or maybe in General Discussion. You're more likely to get specific recommendations there. Personally, I'm not aware of any shape demos sold with mod perms, but then shapes are so easy to make with the Appearance sliders that I have never bought one in SL.
  3. All viewers have Preferences (CTRL + P) >>> Graphics . You enable streamed media on that page. Do be sure that you have clicked the "Advanced" box so that you see the full set of parameters.
  4. Also, do not put anything in the "Interests" category. If you leave that completely blank, the system won't suggest your profile to other people who may have common interests.
  5. Try using streams that aren't blocked. There are plenty of them.
  6. Duplicate post. Original at http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/So-many-domains-blocked/qaq-p/1136217
  7. The Scripting forum is meant as a place for scripters to learn from each other. It's not really a place to look for scripts. If you are looking for someone to write a script for you, the best place to ask is in the Inworld Employment section of the Commerce Forums (http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld-Employment/bd-p/InworldEmployment). If you are looking for a script that already exists, try Marketplace or the LSL Scripting Library (http://community.secondlife.com/t5/LSL-Scripting-Library/bd-p/LSLScriptingLibrary) or the Wanted section of the Commerce forums (http://community.secondlife
  8. Here? Assuming that you have payment information on file, you can buy L$ by clicking on the L$ symbol in the extreme upper right corner of your viewer screen when you are in world. If you're not, you can buy L$ from your dashboard at https://secondlife.com/my/?lang=en-US . Click the Buy $L link in the left-hand sidebar, under the Linden Exchange header.
  9. It all depends on how you stretch and cut the prim. A cube has 7 faces, of which one is the inside face. So you can show up to 5 faces total. Try it. Make a cube, taper it in X and Y, and slice the top off the resulting pyramid. Then flatten it on Z. You'll have four trapezoidal faces surrounding one square. The inside face (#6) and the bottom (#5) won't be seen.
  10. It's quite simple, assuming that the people are registered as SL residents. Use the Map API and designate your chapel as the destination. See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Map_API for an overview and a link to the instructions for setting yours up. ETA: If they aren't SL residents, of course, all bets are off.... until you convince them to join. :smileywink:
  11. Define an integer counter, start it at zero, and then loop through your sound files in a timer event, with the time set to just a little longer than your longest segment..... llPlaySound(llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_SOUND, counter), 1.0); When you play the last one, shut off the timer.
  12. Hey, if all we have is long shots, that's what we offer. Anything is better than a fried graphics card. But that's what I think it is too. =X
  13. That's a really bad ping time and a rotten percentage of dropped packets. You do have a connectivity problem. Try rebooting your router by unplugging it for a few minutes and then plugging it back it to get a fresh hold on an IP address. Get off wireless if you have been on it. Then run a ping test >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Checking_for_packet_loss_%28network_lag%29 to find out where the problem is in your connection.
  14. That's wierd, and a little scary too. I can't think of a good reason for that to happen unless your graphics card is failing. Just as a long shot ...... try opening Preferences (CTRL + P) >> Graphics >> Hardware Settings and UNchecking Enable OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO). That setting is sometimes responsible for making objects black on your screen, although I have never heard of it creating a vertical black line. I don't expect it to work, but who knows?
  15. The fastest way to see where new items are in your inventory is to open the Recent tab. Anything you have received since logging in will be listed there. If you want to look farther back in time, click the gear symbol in the lower left corner of that window and select Show Filters. In the panel that opens, set the time or day that you want to seach for. Items are commonly packaged for delivery, and may be delivered in folders that have obscure names, so open any folder that looks unfamiliar. Go to a sandbox and rez objects that may be boxes that contain your new items too.
  16. Stand on your land and...... Choose World > About Land and click the General tab. Click Abandon Land. After confirming, the land is removed from your account. That's it! You can register for another Linden Home.
  17. Most people who are teaching in SL are teachers in RL, and they are teaching their own RL students here. (And they don't get paid in SL for it.) The other possibilities that you named are all up to you. If you want to call yourself a cheerleader or a veterinarian, do it. Then see if you can convince anyone to pay you to do it (not likely unless you can do something really special that's worth paying for). The point is, almost everyone in SL is self-employed except for DJs, dancers, and escorts. You create a product or develop a service and try to find customers/clients who want to pay you
  18. If you're running a firewall or firewall/internet security software, it may have a security warning in the background that's interrupting Second Life's login process. You may have to reconfigure or disable this third-party software to use Second Life. See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configure_your_software_firewall for instructions on configuring your firewall to avoid this problem.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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

  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
