  1. Right. If you want something grid-wide, follow Wulfie's advice. Build a robust system with an external server.
  2. Chances are pretty good that you set an asking price that was unreasonably low, so nobody is desperate enough to sell at that price. Remember that the LindeX is not a market. It is a currency exchange. You are trading with other SL residents like yourself, so when you use the Limit Buy option you are hoping that some other resident(s) will be willing to meet whatever price you offered. If not, you could wait until the end of time. I suggest canceling that order and placing a new one at a better price or, better still, using the Market Buy option until you are more familiar with how the LindeX works.
  3. Use llRegionSay on a private channel that all of your HUDs use.
  4. That's the way it is. This is a rich, complex world with many options so it does take time to become familiar with the parts that are most important to you. As you look for guidance, remember to turn first to the Knowledge Base (tab at the top of this page). Use its Search tool if you don;t see quick links to your specific question. If you still have questions, you can use Firestorm's wiki (https://wiki.firestormviewer.org/), which is quite comprehensive, and of course you can always return here and either search for questions that others have asked before or ask a new one.
  5. One of the problems of dealing with an outdated, unsupported OS -- in this case, one that is not supported by either Microsoft or Linden Lab -- is that you can't get reliable information about what patchwork ideas might work and, as other have pointed out, manufacturers no longer provide drivers that are compatible with the dead hardware. Unless you want to keep shooting in the dark and getting frustrated, you're best bet is to replace the graphics card or, since that's not likely to work well with your old machine, replace the whole thing. Clearly that involves spending money, but it will end up costing you more in frustration and anxiety to keep putting off the inevitable. Take a good look at your budget, evaluate your other priorities, and see whether a new machine is possible. When you can afford it, shoot for the best machine that you can afford, realizing that it, too, will be obsolete some day. It costs more over the long haul to keep replacing mediocre machines every couple of years than to buy something that is likely to still be viable 5 or 7 years down the road.
  6. Oh, that's easy .... You type the "@" symbol and then start typing the person's name until the list of popup offerings finally shortens to the one that you really wanted. Then you click it, tap your heels together three times, and say, "There's no place like home."
  7. We've already gone around the topic of lutfisk in a previous incarnation of this discussion, so I'll stand off to one side instead of offering a new opinion about whether it counts as "cuisine" or "flavorful". It is distinctive. On the general topic of smoked, salted, and pickled foods, however, I agree that Scandinavians win the prize.
  8. Ooops. My brain was misdirected by your crafty reformatting. Sorry about that. Yes, the current word should be FLIRT. Ignore mine. @Aiiyaz, please play through .... EDIT .... Oh dang. I give up. Sorry about that. We're on FACES.
  9. I've just spent three solid hours in Zoom meetings, looking forward to resurfacing in the "real" world here, only to find that the food wars are still in progress. AND I missed lunch. [Sigh] However ..... since the topic is still open, I have to agree with Beth that bangers and mash is a great British invention. Not exactly a culinary delight, but quite satisfying. Ditto for fish and chips. In fact, more so for fish and chips. With malt vinegar. I can leave the rest of Beth's menu to one side, but those two belong on my menu. Having said that, though, the very best fish and chips I have had in recent years were not in England at all, but in St John's, Newfoundland. They know fish.
  10. The Knowledge Base is a great place to look for basic information. In this case, take a walk through and
  11. Welcome aboard. We were all new once upon a time.
  12. HAH! They don't make an intelligible sentence or phrase. You're disqualified. PPppppth! Back to the game ... Being realistic, every angel keeps .... SHOES.
  13. Unless you are renting from someone who is in the business of being a serious landlord, chances are good that your landlord is like me. I occasionally go out of town for a few days -- well, before CoVid-19 I used to -- so it could take a while before I notice that someone new rented, unless they sent me an IM. I suggest sending a note and then giving your landlord a few days to respond. If you don't hear back soon, move on. You'll be out a week's rent, which is annoying, but that's about all.
  14. For a start, study the sticky thread at the top of this thread that deals with scripting doors. This is a very common scripting task, because there are lot of things in SL that need to rotate around a hinge. "Smooth" is often a matter of making cumulative movements that are small enough that they appear continuous -- a matter of balancing step size with duration of the movement, but can also be accomplished by using llTargetOmega or llSetKeyframedMotion alone or in combination with stepwise movement. You can offset the axis of rotation in several ways, depending on how your object is constructed.
  15. Try this, simply as a proof of concept: default { on_rez (integer startup) { if (!llGetAttached() ) { llSetTimerEvent(0.0); llTargetOmega(<0.0,1.0,0.0>,0.0,0.0); } } attach (key id) { if (id) { llSetTimerEvent(10.0); llTargetOmega(<0.0,1.0,0.0>, PI/2, PI/2); } } timer() { llSetLocalRot( llEuler2Rot(< llFrand(PI/2), llFrand(PI/2), llFrand(PI/2)>) ); } } I just rezzed two small spheres, linked them a couple of meters apart, dropped my script into the root, and attached it to my spine. You'll want to play around with the numbers a lot to make everything the right speed and get things rotating the way you like them. Change the rotation axis for the llTargetOmega around, experiment with setting one or more of the random values in the llSetLocalRot function to zero or to some other fixed value, make the timer change at random intervals .... It's fiddly work but mildly entertaining.
  16. But, but, but ... thst's what makes it marmelade! Absolutely! Too much of the marmelade that we get in the USA is overly sweetened and is little more than orange jelly with little bits of peel floating around in it. A good marmalade has finely sliced peel and has been cooked down enough to be a warm brownish orange. Tangy and delicious. It's great stuff on a scone or on toast. Now you're talking. My mom used to make the best candied citrus peel ... oranges, grapefruits, lemons ... and surprise us with it when we were having a slow, blah day. My son has learned how to make it well now, so he's raising his daughters properly.
  17. I have too. It seems like a lot of work to so to for one person's worth of the stuff. And when I barely have my eyes open too.
  18. Oh, now, you would have to mention donuts. I am very fortunate to live over an hour from the closest shop that sells a reputable donut, not one of those cloying Krispy Kreme things. Otherwise, I would totally ruin my pseudo-diet by going there every time the urge struck. I am not truly fond of sweet things, but I will make an exception for a donut. And this .... Man, this is such a good derail......
  19. Well, you can get it through King Arthur, but it will cost you $8.95 for a 6 oz. bottle, shipped from England. I don't know how well it survives in a bottle, bounced across the sea. I have eyed it in their catalog many times, never wanting to spend so much for a very small jar, but hoping that maybe my daughter or DIL would think to send me some for a special day. But we digress. Scones and clotted cream are hardly a peeve.
  20. Well, we do like scones ... That's something I could go for, along with the coffee, as long as it isn't one of those squishy things that are sometimes passed off as scones here in the USA. A proper scone with clotted cream or butter would go down nicely.
  21. Well, then, change your object's rotation axis slowly in a timer event too. Or make your object have a child prim with llTargetOmega scripts in both the root prim and the child.
  22. Sorry. There's just no way I could face something that looks like that, especially not at breakfast time. Then again, I can't face most things at breakfast time, except coffee.
  23. Ah, well then ... you're skunked. You can only run one account at a time on one instance of a viewer. After all, SL is premised on having your viewer maintaining a continuous data stream with the LL servers. If you break that stream for more than a few milliseconds, the servers no longer know exactly where you are and your viewer no longer knows what's going on around you in world. You can't just have your viewer tell the servers, "Wait a bit. I'm going to go run another account here for a while. Hold my place." If you want to run that other account, you either have to use a second viewer or you have to log out and log back in with the second account. I don't understand this part, but I do understand now that you don't have a MP store. In that case, no, ANS will not work for you. And there's absolutely no way that Linden Lab is going to let you query your account balance from the outside. They are very security conscious, so nobody peeks into their accounting system.
  24. That's just because you didn't specify that you wanted the object to keep on spinning around. It the context of LSL, "rotate" means "make a single turn by some specified number of radians." If you want the thing to keep on turning, you'll need to put the command in some sort of recurring event. A timer that triggers every 0.2 seconds and rotates the object by another few radians would do the trick, for example. Or you could simply use the llTargetOmega function. If you want the object to spin around its own Z axis, for example, you can just write llTargetOmega(<0.0,0.0,1.0>, 0.1, 0.1);
  25. Pick a card .... any card ... I think it had something to do with beavers. Or maybe something someone said about having a sense of humor. Or maybe .... gosh, I dunno. Too many pages back.
