  1. I definitely know from both past and current experiences that buying in desirable regions is both patience and luck. Years ago, like, 8 years ago, I had a small parcel in Bay City (Dennis) that I didn't really realize the value of. I still to this day wish I had never gotten rid of that land that I originally purchased for like 30k for the 1024 plot and I simply let it go to abandoned when I no longer wanted to play SL daily. This was under old abandoned land procedures, so someone likely snatched it immediately for L$1/sqm. I will say though, for anyone that isn't 100% set on paying tha
  2. Hi there! I am hoping that I'll be able to help you with your requests! I have had a lot of experience in the shape editor and actually am working on making a variety of shapes for my own store. Feel free to hit me up (leave a notecard please as IMs are always capped) and I look forward to discussing what you need! Siofra Highmist
  3. Hi there, I'm Sio and I've been around secondlife for a number of years, but just recently returned after a long break. Naturally, I have lost touch with all of my old friends around SL and reconnecting with them has been hard simply due to absence. I am hoping that I can meet some new friends around here to do stuff with! (And, you know, because new friends are great) I both like to create in SL and explore. I at one point had a photography business around here that I plan on revaamping, along with updating the items of my store to be well... newer. And better. I'd like to find friends with s
  4. Hey there. So, I'm looking to buy a new laptop for SL but technical jibber-jabber in terms of how things actually work confuses me. I'm looking at something like this. Help? My budget would be about 600-800. Can I even get a decent laptop to run SL with that budget?

  6. Hey there. So maybe someone can help me with this, because I don't understand... I just opened the edit menu for my shape, and messed around with your typical torso + leg dials, didn't even TOUCH the hover menu or option... and when I clicked "save" it set my hover to 0 for some reason. I've been trying fruitlessly to get it to save to having me above ground, but each time I click "save" it resets to 0... With or without objects and AO on, it does this. Relog doesn't help. Editing the shape doesn't help. I would like to be above ground. Can anyone help?
  7. Really the only thing that is pushing me away from Mac is the pricing. Poking around on their website the other day, it looks like they do not offer a computer under USD$2300 that contains an actual grapics card over integrated graphics chips. I'm currently on intel's newest incarnation of integrated graphics and I can tell you that it really can't run anything efficiently. It takes sometimes 15+ minutes to load my own house let alone anything else in SL. Obviously I could have missed something as I did not go in store to ask, just poked around online. But if that is in fact what's going o
  8. Depends on what you see as "real" ;-) But I'll chime in here and say that the relationship my (RL) husband and I are in started on Second Life. When we felt it was appropriate, we moved from SL to Skype video chats, and when we felt it was appropriate after that we met in person. At that point, we knew that things between us would work well for an SL to RL transition, and when we were ready we made that transition. It was a little difficult dealing with disapproving family members in the process but after two years things are okay now. :-)
  9. Don't worry, you're definitely not alone. :-) I have also been in SL for three years. I do in fact have friends, (yes, actual ones) but all except one have moved on from SL entirely... I still talk with them via Skype and other venues, but pretty much I am alone now. It's not that I really have any issues with connecting with people, it's that I can't seem to find people that actually want to build any kind of friendships online. Most of them would rather just IM me when they want some L$. :-/ Although I agree with the other sentiments that we should have a group of people who can't f
  10. Hi there. I am trying to change my preferences for a friend on my friends list, so that they cannot see my online status.... Yet when I load up the website it says they're not even in my friends and therefore won't let me change it. I know I can see their online status as they're "online" in my friends list right now... But why can't I change that preference? Is there a way to change it without them on my friends list on the website? I swear these things were just simpler when we could do everything in the viewer -.-;;
  11. Not sure if you're still looking at this or not... but. My RL husband & a friend run a zelda group, complete with sim. The name's Hyrulian Legacy and while open enrollment is closed, you're more than welcome to contact me inworld and I'll have someone give you an invite. The group and sim is currently undergoing some rennovation and set up, but there's a huge number of people and *most* of them are quite friendly. The sim is being set up to be a place where members can role play, rent out a house, and a HUD is also being set up so that there can be some gameplay going on as well. The sim
  12. SO. Normally I'm not in your average human av, but lately while designing something simpler than I usually use I encountered something.. I've got this duck lip thing going on. Pic: Anyone have any ideas on how to get it to go away? I tried a facelight, new skin, new shape.. not sure what settings to mess with to get it to go away if I can D:
  13. I was a premium member, and then I upgraded my tier level, still staying premium. When I get my bill in the next week, will it incorporate the monthly premium AND the tier fee, or is the tier fee correct in the amount it will be in total?
