  1. I was logged in and decided to log out due to system layers not loading. Tried to log back on and got the same message. Thanks for reporting on this Emma.
  2. The only time i get an unsolicited call from someone that's added everyone around for a group IM is some sad person pretending to be Prok in an attempt to get Prok AR'd. While I'm no fan, certainly, this continued, persistent hate directed at them years after the fact makes me think that maybe Prok was right. Another part of me thinks 'how sad' for the wasted time someone puts into a useless vendetta. YMMV On Topic: There are some people whom I love in my IM box as soon as i log on. They're the people I care about most. They know who they are. But, if that's a problem, you can always log on in hidden mode until you're ready to unhide. As for club / store / etc messages.. well there's a check box in group profiles that lets you turn the group chats off if they get spammy. The same goes for group notices. you do have control of your SL.
  3. It can just report any alts you may have by virtue of how that system works. There's always a price.
  4. 1. No one can see a file on your computer but you. 2. Avermetcin is not Ivermetcin. They are related. One is synthetic. One is not. No one knows if they are 'the same' or not as there has not been a huge number of valid research on humans. Small doses are great for getting rid of scabies big doses are.. well those pesky hospitalizations I mentioned are directly due to people being conned by quacks like Dr Lawrie. (okay, maybe she isn't incompetent and she's just an opportunistic grifter? So either she's dumb as a box of rocks, or she's morally reprehensible. I'm good with dismissing her either way. 3. So she's South African and left the country right after Apartheid ended. Hmmm how about that.
  5. Well, the work history I mentioned indicates some sort of problem. She had the title of Director for one job that she had for a whopping 6 months. I work in healthcare, 6 months as a Director (and the slew of other jobs that mostly lasted less than 1 year over the course of 10 or more years) is a huge red flag. Whether it's because of incompetence or inability to 'work well over others' is irrelevant. That it seems to have happened over and over again, I believe, is. And yes, I do judge someone that moves to, lives in and supports a racist government then leaves when that racist government is deposed in a fairly dim light. Coupled with her work history.. Well, there are a lot of inferences to be made. Medical facilities tend to overlook a lot of things to keep qualified staff. Racism and sustained incompetence aren't. The medicine originally mentioned that the conspiracy theorists glommed onto as ivermectin was, I believe, avermectin. A related, but different drug. Both are anti-parasitic, but they aren't the same thing and to assume interchangeability is deadly dangerous. In either case with these medicines, a virus is not a parasite. The stupidity arises from the fact that people are hospitalized for overdosing on a drug that's really difficult to overdose on because of these medical frauds that are trying to capitalize on people's fear (and in many cases, poverty.)
  6. Well a quick google shows she got her Doctorate (and worked for 4 years, though no more than a few months at a time) in South Africa long before Apartheid ended. Which, for me, speaks to character. In fact she seems to have left South Africa right about the time it ended. She continued her work history of working at various jobs for about 6 months to almost a year for 10 years until she landed her current job at a gynecological cancer center. Considering she got the name of a drug wrong and then doubled down on promoting it (and by extension, her 'research consultancy'), I'd say she's risen to her level of incompetence. Just because someone has a degree does not preclude them from being a. Batspit crazy and b. Dumb as a box of rocks.
  7. But but but, that's NOT what a random person who is totally a DOCTOR (their Facebook page confirms it!) said on YouTube. And we all know how reliable YouTube is in dispensing VITAL information like '10 Actors who refuse to work together ever again'.
  8. Fun fact, you're wrong, it's known. The way vaccines work is that if you do acquire the illness vaccinated against, your bodies immune system quickly gets rid of it. So you don't build up the huge reservoir of germs that lets them spread like wildfire. Lower amounts for a shorter duration. So, someone vaccinated, that acquires the virus, is less likely to spread it to someone that's unvaccinated, by huge amounts. There's less of it in the air around them, even if infected. https://www.gavi.org/vaccineswork/mounting-evidence-suggests-covid-vaccines-do-reduce-transmission-how-does-work Of course it's common courtesy and a civic duty to still mask up until the herd immunity threshold is crossed. After that, refusing to get immunized is a survival trait fail.
  9. There's also Requeeca at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/aaa/129/46/1402 They have some cute AO sets and individual animations can be purchased as well.
  10. I live a poly lifestyle in SL, so jealousy is a huge non-starter for me. Accept me, accept the family. That can also help keep things fresh. People wax and wane in online communities as RL circumstances change. If you have a large family grouping, if one needs to step away, either for a time or permanently, it softens the blow. But I also agree, ghosting is pretty damn low. Once, a long time ago, my PC died and I was still able to contact people I loved in SL while trying to replace it.
  11. The moustache and beard need lightening to a browner color, but you're lookin good!
  12. I know you hate context, but in the context of this thread, most people would understand when I say 'mesh' I mean mesh body parts. You understand that too, but pedants gotta be pedantic amirite? By the time you posted, if you had read the thread, he had already made the purchase of a human adult body and head, which made your 'just buy a dinkie' advice rather absurd. Why do you bother spending tens, even hundreds of dollars, in buying mesh buildings and furniture when items made of prims will do? You know why. It looks better. In the context of SL, it looks more modern (Pedant counter rant: Yes even though it's not a model of a modern building a mesh medieval cottage looks more SL modern than a prim one. Added because i know an argument over what is literally said rather than accepting the nuance of context is just the hill you love to die on.) Well the same goes for reasons to buy modern mesh heads and bodies. They simply look better and that's the goal. News alert, people use SL for other things than you do. Or did you miss that nuance of context too?
  13. Your answer has literally nothing to do with the help he's looking for. We get it, you don't like mesh. To each their own, but sheesh dude..
  14. For a few more hair base options, you might try Orthodox. They have a bunch of free BoM hairbases, or did anyway. They come in basic black as well as a white, tintable base. It'll give you more options for a buzzed or even short style of hair. (FYI girls, they work for us too.)
  15. So, it's been a while since I posted. These are a few I've taken in the last couple of months, and while late to the party, I had to share the ones I took at FF.
  16. Or a new age 'guru'? Would that sort of behavior include following someone on a forum for a couple years to disparage them every time they ever posted, primarily to carry on a grudge over a perceived slight to an SL landscaping business thereby making it unpleasant for them to post and eventually driving them away? That sort of abuse?
  17. Regardless of its purpose, any space in SL is as good as its staffing. Someone has to be the anchor that keeps bringing folk back. Someone to interact with new arrivals to make them feel welcome to join in. "Hi <person>! welcome to <place>. Have a seat, we were talking about <topic>." and continuing to welcome them when and if they come back. It also takes being there day after day, even if it's for just a couple hours to keep things spinning smoothly. Eventually, it will gain its own momentum but still requires that anchor to hop on and give it a few kicks to keep that momentum going. Like a merry-go-round.
  18. Did you add any new sitting animations to your AO or get a new AO around then? The problem described still seems AO related. Like a sit with a higher priority than the dance animations.
  19. That's a bit of a loaded question. There are as many different variations of kinky activities as there are people in SL. Basically, it boils down to what interests you.
  20. Just tell her it was with another dude. Because, as we've all been told, time and time again, there are no women on the internet. (And if there were, they wouldn't be interested in virtual sex.)
  21. Turn off your AO. ETA: Sometimes you need to give the danceball permission to animate your avatar.
  22. Wasteland 3 has an epic soundtrack that really sets the mood. This is the trailer score..
