    The link to the following page, and the materiel thereon, makes it clear that SL still has an API for registering new users with last names.  http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Registration_API

    That info might be a bit out of date, I still have the last known third party registration portal to have last names bookmarked the sign up page still exists however in the last name section there are none

  2. I've not noticed much if any difference in lag on the BoM FS i still get the same FPS on my mainland parcel, and any place i go to that's mega laggy is still mega laggy. aside from trying a different viewer you may want to try white listing Firestorm in your antivirus if you haven't already some AV's may scan each and every file and texture used by FS or what ever viewer you're using causing a performance hit https://wiki.firestormviewer.org/antivirus_whitelisting

  3. The "Bellisseria Citizens" group put out a notice about an organised trick or treat event in Bellisseria anyone can apply for their home to be part of it if they are willing to give something away. I put up a stand at the front of my home with a hot chocolate giver and the sweet bowl that was in the group notices i filled mine up with a few things i've made in the past including a couple of chairs, a pose (made with an inworld tool) and a t-shirt (Maitreya applier & System layer). As long as it's copy/trans and self made or a something that allows giving away free you can give trick or treater's anything you want

  4. I just took the first property i could get while it is near a pool which is one of my preferred places/community areas to live near, i'm not wild about the location. if it wasn't for the time it might take to get somewhere with nicer landscaping around it and now being settled in my home i'd try for another place

    I've never gone to a single shopping event.  My general understanding is that they are too crowded to get into which means almost certainly my FPS would plummet meaning I can't actually look at anything I might want to buy.  No thanks.  I find stuff I like on MP and from there I get brands I like.  What I buy is fatpacks not outfits as a general rule.  So this whole scheme is a complete miss for me.

    Most shopping events are very popular or full in their first few days/week then the number of people in the sim starts to tail off, I find the "Region Tracker" in Firestorm useful for seeing how full events i choose to visit regularly are. if your viewer has the option you could always set your viewer to "Show friends only" or in the advanced menu disable "Avatar" rendering when visiting a shopping event.

    I've been eating Kit Kats kept cold in the fridge. They are crispy and delicious. Peanut butter cups are a close second.

    I've been loving the Kit Kats covered in "Ruby Cocoa" pink chocolate lately and also love peanut butter cups and their seasonal shapes more the peanut butter inside than the choc on the outside

    I'm going to admit that, on the whole, I don't much like American chocolate. Hershey's, for instance, always tastes waxy to me.

    The absolute masters of candy are the Brits. They make the most glorious everything -- Barratt's Sherbet Fountains, and Quality Street, and Rowntree Pastilles, and EVERYTHING. Even their potato chips (aka crisps) are better: I can only get Oxtail Soup chips when I go specialty candy stores!

    British Cadbury chocolate is also very waxy and nasty in taste since the brand got taken over by Kraft/Mondelez whatever it's called now, much prefer Galaxy or Ritter chocolate. Must admit i've never seen Oxtail soup flavour crisps anywhere. They don't exist anymore but i used to like Hedgehog flavour crisps

  7. My name is a mash up i wanted to go with my name but every last name i tried it wouldn't allow me to have. I toyed with some other names even deciding to use the name of the next female singer to come up on the radio but i couldn't commit to any them before having the bright idea i'd mash the two names together. When it came to a last name i picked one i could remember how to spell and liked i can recall several names similar sounding to mine that i would've picked being in the list Hesse, Hester & Heston. Since Hesse & Hester didn't sound quite right it was a toss up between the "en" or "on" spelling variants, Hesten felt more like a last name spelling so i went with it

    Ah yeah ? Really ? Try to edit the feet. At least one the demo given in the shop it's impossible.

     

    The feet and lack of resize have always been somewhat of a downside, however i have tried on alts bodies with feet that can be resized in edit mode and the feet only look good and correct within a specific value range. if i remember right on the TMP feet the optimum foot slider value is 45 anything below 40 and above 50 looks weird. Traditionally in the days of system feet, shoes were made for a foot size of 0 you could go lager but your feet would look like ogre feet


  9.  I have not known of any offer where you'd get the L$1000 sooner than 45 consecutive days of being premium only discounted quarterly plans. As well as the L$1000 i also recall getting another small bonus of around L$250 the first time i went premium many years ago for paying with Paypal i don't know if that still happens

    My Deluxe TMP is entirely (not head sold apart). I'm 1.86m RL so I wanna be tall here too : impossible with MAITREYA that is only for petite sized (or so) ones.

    I don't know where you get the idea being 1.86m (6"1) is impossible with Maitreya i use that body and am exactly that height in SL and i have been far taller 7ft plus when i first made the transition from a system body to Maitreya. The body can handle any height it's only shapes where you might want lots of padding where a curvy body would be a better option

  11. I'm going to guess you look like this

    original_5ca4b979289dd2404e000001.png

    It's just one of those weird glitchy things that sometimes happens in SL, it last happened to one of my alts up in my basic studio using my own pose stand the posing script is a commercially available one that uses a blue menu to auto or manual cycle through poses & rotations, turn 180 or show and/or hide the stand & text which any pose stand you own might use. hoping off and on again will cure it. What Skell said is also very plausible it's not uncommon for items that can be worn to unpack to have a hold pose in them that makes you look awkward after removing

  12. The most popular/widely created for head brands will set you back between L$5,000 & L$5,500 if you absolutely love a head in this price range and you can't afford it in one go save, don't buy a head you're not entirely happy with because it's more affordable as you'll never be entirely happy with it and will end up spending more money on your dream head anyway

    I believe the free eBody's still only allow you to use the built in skins so while you could use any brand out there i think the problem you're going to have is finding an applier that matches the eBody skins or a head whose built in skins can be tinted to mach eBody

  13. I've never seen availability of a Beta body at either the Maitreya or LeLutka stores where Lara is sold. I have seen one or two mentions of Beta on product images this would have been from when Lara was no doubt in the Beta phase before mesh bodies entered my radar. Given the updates Lara has had over it's time if you don't have older versions of the body there's no way to get them
