  1. When you request permissions, LSL expects you to provide a run_time_permissions event in which you check to be sure that the requester has actually given permission. That's where you should usually put most of the stuff that you now have in the touch_start event. If you plan on letting other people use the script, you can either try restarting the script, for example by using a changed event to detect if (change & CHANGED_OWNER) { llResetScript(); } or you can test in the touch_start event to see whether the current toucher has given permission. For example ... touch_start (integer num) { if ( llGetPermissionsKey() == llDetectedKey(0) ) { //Do all the rezzing/animating stuff ....} else { llRequestPermissions( llDetectedKey(0), PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION); } }

  4. What? You don't include your thumbs too?
  5. Bears often resent insufferable screaming. GROWL
  6. As Bigmoe commented in your other thread on the same topic, I don't even understand what you are asking for, so cannot answer.
  7. As soon as you set perms to allow the user to modify the script, you have essentially made it full perm. The user can simply open the script, cut/paste it into another script, and have a free copy to resell or distribute. You might as well just give the script away. In fact, that's what quite a few scripters do -- simply post a script like that in the script library so that anyone can benefit.
  8. Nope. In fact, unless you are distributing the script with mod perms (highly unusual), the owner won't even be able to reset it.
  9. We are of the same era. I submitted my dissertation the last year that the university required carbon copies (photocopies were unacceptable) of all archival work. The following year, they decided that photocopies were probably stable enough.
  10. Yes, I have heard the same complaints about the demise of penmanship as long as I have been alive. The big difference I see now is that children can't read MY handwriting. It doesn't look like the stuff their computers spit out and they haven't been taught how to write on their own.
  11. That's the writer's guess at the year when the younger generations decided that search engines had gotten fast enough that it was easier to just leave information in an unsorted heap than to presort it into folders and directories. (My son discovered that with his clean laundry when he was about 15, I think. Why bother putting it all neatly into the drawers and closets when it takes less time to just grab things out of the laundry basket?) Sorting is necessary when you have so much information that it will take an unbearably long time to retrieve what you want later if you don't. If searching is easier, sorting is a waste of time. Why 2017? Blame it on Google/Amazon/Instagram/Facebook. EDIT: Parenthetically, I blame the demise of penmanship on the same trend. My grandsons have abominably poor handwriting (printing, actually) because they have grown up in an era when neatness with pen and pencil no longer made a difference. Everyone types on a computer keyboard these days, so why bother learning how to make your scrawling pencil notes legible? Penmanship was only necessary as long as deciphering was hard without it. As I note several times a day, the world is going to hell in a handbasket, and we have impatience and short attention spans to blame for it. Abetted by technology.
  12. Duplicate post. Full discussion at Please do not post the same question in more than one place.
  13. St. James Infirmary Blues -- The Silk Road Ensemble & Yo-Yo Ma
  14. Elégie in C minor Op. 24 -- Gabriel Faure , Jacqueline du Pré
  15. That's really unencouraging, sadly true. GREED
  16. You have defined new local string variables called link_name in each of the if tests in your touch_start event. You are never loading any value into the global variable called link_name.
  17. Information in my brain seems to be stored in one big heap, sadly, and the algorithm that I use for searching is slow and inefficient. As the years go by, I keep telling myself that I have to develop a better filing system or, failing that, a more intuitive algorithm. I've been putting it off far too long -- a lifetime, it seems. I'm afraid that I am starting to have memory leaks and overflow issues, and I have only crude tools for diagnosing them. In an ideal world, I would love to be able to back up everything in an external drive, but everything I have found on the market requires me to transcribe things manually. It's a slow, hopeless task. It's way too late to do anything about creating a multi-layered storage system and a more efficient random access file retrieval protocol. I'm afraid this brain is as efficient as it's going to get. The only truly comforting fact is that I have a lifetime warranty.
