  1. I like both and really have no preference. This is the first time I’ve ever really had to think about it.
  2. The babies in boxes is an old forum thread where a resident saw a merchant displaying prim babies in some kind of packaging and she was very concerned about it. The thread was something like, “ What’s this about babbies in boxes? The misspelling made it more memorable.
  3. Just stay logged in 24 hours 7 days a week. I think you can put your computer on standby and keep your SL minimized. It doesn’t cost much energy to keep your computer on.
  4. The best way to make loads of money is to open up a club. You need a dance floor, lights, a stage, DJs providing the music and some hosts to make everyone feel at home. The more flashy lights the better. You also need to look the part of a club owner so buy the best avatar you can buy. Do all that and watch the money roll in!
  5. The F.I.C. The ***** incident reported by German news. Horror stories about banking in SL. Sexgen releasing of all it's animations. All sorts of conspiracies involving ALTS. Babies in boxes. Who attacked Genus? That's a mystery.
  6. LL should make a mobile viewer to look at your avatar and other people's avatars. There are mobile apps called hero collectors where you have detailed avatars but very simple game graphics. I think an SL app for just avatar customization and viewing along with a chat function would work with the limited processing power and graphics of a mobile device. The SL app could also encourage people to take their avatars into the full SL world using a computer. It could even link up to the marketplace.
  7. Can't an SL designer simply make their own merch and advertise it in their profile or stick a prim with a link in their store in-world? I mean, corporations were doing it all the time when they had their own regions. Their merch was a lot more expensive.
  8. It's not a bad video. Nicely produced. She has a kind of exaggerated, slightly loopy, influencer personality. I've seen a lot of youtube videos and this is par for the course.
  9. Mine works fine right now. Status looks okay too. https://status.secondlifegrid.net
  10. Might want to wait for Black Friday sales. https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/Gaming-Series-Products/ https://store.acer.com/en-us/laptops/gaming https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/d/gaming-laptops https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/gaming-laptops/sc/game-laptops?~ck=bt https://store.hp.com/us/en/slp/hp-gaming https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Laptop#AORUS https://us.msi.com/Laptops
  11. I find that the welcome areas have people using voice. I can't say that the conversation will be interesting though.
  12. Usually it's the girls who fall for the bad boys, not the boys falling for the bad girls, but que sera que sera.
  13. Can SL be accessed by VR? I think there was a client that supported it but that went away. I think empty sims might work well.
  14. @FairreLilette Did you get the Addams store credit at the Halloween shp’n’hop? I’ve always thought SL needs central planning, zoning of regions for certain activities, and LL has actually tried this but can’t control what people build or where people go to shop or party. Maybe LL could make a new user created map, which is brought up like a hud, and this map is filled with icons for shops, houses, venues, etc. Sort of a graphical layout of our landmarks where we can group all the stores in one area and houses in another. It’d create a visual map that looks better than just a list of
  15. Then it becomes an Alfredo sauce. I’ve heard of milk stewed chicken. It’s supposed to be good.
  16. Not a Trump supporter but I think he was (is) needed to shake up both the political system and the perception the public has of the politicians and news organizations. Trump defeated both the Republicans and the Democrats in 2016. His win was a message to both parties that they are absolute poop.
  17. The business model that SL has been using with free and premium players seems to be working. SL has been free to play since around 2006. There is value in people who just visit SL without paying a thing. I enjoy talking to new people who have just entered SL. I enjoy the feeling of an active world with people doing things. Anyways, here's an interesting article I dug up. https://lindenlab.wordpress.com/2006/03/23/free-to-play-pay-for-stuff/
  18. Subscriptions to games only work with a large player base and many multiplayer games have gone from a subscriber system to free-to-play. SL isn’t like most games. Free players can still create and consume content. Free players can also turn into premiums. Having to pay for SL right from the start would be a huge barrier to entry. Getting rid of a huge population of active users and shrinking new signups is such a bad idea.
  19. It is worrisome is that she cheated on the OP during their SL relationship. It might be in her nature to look for fun elsewhere. Nobody is perfect but there are some flaws that are not easily forgivable. Only the OP can decide on thIs.
  20. There is of course, fair use. It depends on what you are doing. I think videos where you are just reviewing or giving examples are able to use without needing permission.
  21. I never look at the blog posts. I almost missed the Halloween shop-n-hop!
  22. I have to warn you that a tiny case pc, cube pc, small form factor case, will have heat problems. I had one and it worked until summer when it began to shut down from overheating. It had almost no airflow inside the case. In a way, it is worse than a laptop because you are using a full power CPU and GPU instead of the low voltage low heat mobile chips in a laptop. The Lenovo lunchbox seems to get around it by having an open air flow but I think the low power supply is to stop people from installing a powerful graphics card. A desktop replacement running a large monitor and 3D graphics would p
  23. I think Lenovo calls their gaming laptops Legion. So the Lenovo Legion laptops are what you should look at. The Thinkpads are the regular non-gaming laptops. You can also look at Dell or Asus for something similar with a dock. I can't recommend HP.
