  1. Heh heh hmmf hmmf, they said "member."
  2. "Also, please do not make use of apostrophes, even in official signs, as we have deemed them to be too phallic."
  3. Hey, speaking of derendering, how long do things stay derendered if you flag them for the blacklist? I'm using Firestorm, and have a property that looks cruddy with all the surrounding junk of various neighbors, but fabulous after taking several hours to derender everything ugly in sight. The next time I log in, several folks have either added more crud, or Firestorm is rendering stuff I know I derendered, such as parcel border barriers as above. Derendering also seems to have a positive effect on fps.
  4. They're gonna have a fit if they ever find out you derendered their privacy screen. "Stop looking at me! Stop looking at me! STOP LOOKING AT ME!!!"
  5. I have a strange feeling I've been there before...
  6. Some. Of us. LOVE. CAMPERS!
  7. Look closely at the slats behind the umbrella. In the first picture, they don't show; In the second picture, they do.
  8. Plus at this point I don't even remember precisely where it was. I was just wandering, and only took a pic, not a landmark, before heading home.
  9. It didn't appear to be method #1, so might be method #2. Either way, I'm not reporting it, as technically it's not out of theme. Nor is it blocking passage on the road. Nor do I live nearby, nor do I use a viewer that lacks derendering capability. Nor am I on the Linden Labs payroll and managing parcels is part of my job. I'm just fascinated by how this is being done.
  10. More graffiti. I'm not bothered by it. But I'm baffled at how they're pulling this off. It's a fun puzzle to try to solve.
  11. To own land on the Mainland, you'd need to go Premium. One of the perks of Premium is a free Linden Home, which would be located in Bellisseria. Even if you never go Premium, never even rent a parcel let alone own one, anywhere, you can still use one of the many rez zones the Lindens have set up in Bellisseria. Welcome back to Second Life! 🙂
  12. I do own several different parcels, because I like the variety. I like land that is unique in some way, such as a spot by the Great Wall, another by that Linden road that goes into an underwater tube when it encounters a lake, and a spot on part of one of the highest mountains in the game. I've also got snow land that overlooks a valley road and river, a tiny plot near one of my favorite LDPW spots, and some land adjacent to the Cirue-du-Whateveritscalled on Corsica, including one of those ancient videophones across the street. I used to rent a place in Bay City, but couldn't figure out wha
  13. Great boat rez area for sailing around a Linden oil rig and one of the tallest mountains in Second Life.
  14. Found it! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mujoul/19/4/76 The land across the street is for sale, cheap. I thought about buying it, but then I know it would always feel like the neighbors are watching me.
  15. Find an area with lots of abandoned land. Then buy some and turn it into a farm.
  16. This sounds like something to contact LL about.
  17. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt lol I forget where it is, other than that it's on a GTFO route. It's a tribute to the creator of ban lines lol
  18. Thanks for reminding me that having a GTFO Hub is one of my Belli goals. I'll talk to my friend who owns a stilt I'm helping her decorate, and see if she's interested in having a GTFO Hub.
  19. Every parcel is a bit different from the rest already, given placement of terrain features, foliage, and nearby buildings. Additionally, what makes each home unique is not what Linden Labs adds to it, but what the end user adds. Second Life has always been more about user creativity and customized content than any other game.
  20. I've always wanted to do that, to see and manipulate the additional terrain and estate controls owning an entire sim comes with. But it's cost-prohibitive, plus I've felt too isolated when renting parcels on estates in the middle of nowhere. I need to feel connected to the mainland, and be able to boat or drive there. I've even felt this way in real life, feeling trapped in on islands that are too small, in my mind (Oahu was fine, but Kauai felt too boxed in). I suppose I wouldn't feel that way if it was a multi-regional private estate -- it would feel like a small continent. But if I can
