  1. You need permission from Linden Lab. The wiki has been closed to general editing for a few years because there was too much malicious posting.
  2. Did you check the little box that says, "Remember username"? And the one next to it that says "Remember password"?
  3. Oh. Well, then, just don't put your secrets in writing. That balloon could end up being shot down in Chinese air space. Your secrets would be on the front page of Renmin Huabao before breakfast.
  4. Corollary #1: The only person you can trust with a secret is your mother. Corollary #2: Don't tell your mother anything. Corollary #3: Even if she's dead.
  5. That's the way it appeared to me --- sort of a dummy variable in that mode -- but it's good to have that verified. Thanks. And that's ideal. Even better than what I was planning to do. Thanks again.
  6. No, it's not. I quoted the entire "description" above. It's about as clear as mud, sadly. Thanks. I suspected as much, but was hoping for a simpler approach. That does still leave me wondering what to do with the final parameter in [ PRIM_ALPHA_MODE, integer face, integer alpha_mode, integer mask_cutoff ] since there is no mask cutoff in emissivity mode. Time to do more experimenting.

    The easy way to find out is to visit Maitreya's Redelivery terminal and get the v5.1 model. I have no idea whether it will solve your problem, but it's the smart thing to do anyway. I assume that they upgrade their product for a good reason. The current version solved my own problem.
  8. According to the LSL wiki, when PRIM_ALPHA_MODE_EMISSIVE is enabled, "Diffuse texture pixels opacity maps to their emissivity when rendered. Fully opaque pixels will effectively be rendered as ‘full bright’." That implies that we should be able to vary emissivity gradually between zero and FULLBRIGHT by changing opacity while we have that alpha mode enabled. But I can't see how to do it with llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast. Has anyone else figured this one out?
  9. I think you may be imagining something very different from what you described in your OP. Grid Status is a report created by Linden Lab and displayed at the URL I provided above. If you want to display that web page on the face of a prim, use Shared Media. I also gave you a link to the Knowledge Base article that tells you how to do that. You don't need any special LSL script at all. I have no idea why you are trying to extract information from the Grid Status Report and put it into hover text, but I am beginning to suspect that you are not really asking about Grid Status at all. Perhaps you simply want to know whether a specific region is on line at the moment? If so, you can use llRequestSimulatorData. There's a very simple example at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlRequestSimulatorData#Examples that you can modify to look for DATA_SIM_STATUS instead of DATA_SIM_RATING. Just request the information with a timer-triggered call to the function and display the output in hover text if that's what you are after.
  10. The URL for the grid status page is https://status.secondlifegrid.net/ . To display any URL on a prim,
  11. As we were all told in the announcement regarding name changes, "In order to ensure your name changes proceed smoothly, please make sure you are logged out of the viewer before changing your name. There may be a delay of 24-48 hours for your new name to show across all services in Second Life. " There are many systems within SL that all need to be adjusted when you change your name. Some things change almost immediately, but others are apparently more complicated, so they take longer. I advise waiting for a day before you panic. Then, contact Live Chat tomorrow if you still have problems.
  12. With jalapenos? That's my favorite kind, great on a rye crisp cracker. 🥰
  13. It can take as much as 24 hours before your changed name is recognized through all parts of SL.
  14. Then the account is still alive. That may still leave you wondering what else may be going on in his life, but you won't be able to get those answers unless you ask him. He may simply be out of town, or having computer problems. or he may have just decided to take a break from SL for a bit while attending to RL things that are more pressing. Send a friendly note to find out, without seeming too nosy about it, and see what happens.
  15. I haven't played with llGetDayLength much, but there's a handy example script in the wiki that you might play with.
  16. Try to open the person's profile. You exist, for example:

    Thanks. It fixed mine.

    That's a very good question. I have been using that HUD for well over a year and there are still parts of it that I cannot figure out, like the entire Layers tab. The BOM button seems erratic to me too. Perhaps an instruction notecard would be helpful.
  19. In that case, Look at the top of the screen while you are in Marketplace, and then use the dropdown menu to set your access preference to General, Moderate, Adult.
  20. Have you clicked the option in About Land >> Sound on your parcel to restrict sounds to your own parcel? That should have the effect of blocking sounds outside your parcel from coming in too. I believe that option is checked by default on all Bellisseria parcels, but you or a previous owner may have unchecked it.
  21. I'm not quite sure what you are doing, but it looks as if you are breaking each line of data from the notecard into two parts: (1) the object name and (2) a string called count that contains everything else. Then, you are converting count into a comma-delimited list called sort, which you then separate into pieces and "cast the data back to their types and use them." You haven't included the important bit of code that shows how you plan to evaluate the various parts of sort, but I can tell you that if you are separating them by looking for commas, then you are ripping vectors and rotations into pieces. A vector like <13.56, 784.9, 500.10> will be interpreted potentially as a string ( "<12.56"), a float (784.9), and another string ("500.10>"), which is not what you intended. If you want to keep variables separate so that you can typecast them reliably, you can't use commas to delimit them. Separate them with "~" or "$" or something else.
  22. OK.... Not a recurring peeve but one that is appropriate for today.... Getting to almost the end of a week without major things going off the rails, and then watching things start to unravel at 2:30 on a Friday. It's not that weekends are really any different from the rest of the week, but my brain says that Fridays are for cleaning up loose ends, not for watching them spawn.
