  4. I have to disagree with lists being memory efficient - they aren't. Single valued variables are always more memory efficient, but more of a pain to work with (ie. a lists are easier to work with). JSON is cool, and 'may' save you some memory depending - you'll have to test. If you don't use that much data, just use lists for the easy of use. The fastest / most efficient code is that which doesn't exist. I tend to write like an old C++ programmer writing symmetric functions for every little thing first. But once everything is working I go back through and remove all the junk. So can you consolidate some functions into one function? In your final stage of optimization, remove all comments. Also replace triple spaces with a tab. Basically every extra char in your script uses a bit of memory.
  5. Live or Work in Bay City, the coolest city themed area designed by the Lindens. This rental is for a 2x prim corner lot in Bay City. Parcel is 1024sqm and 468prims. (parcels like this sell for L$100k or more, so this rental price is a great bargin) See it HERE

  7. @Czari Here's the link to the meeting (noon today -Sun 9/29) RiftRaven posted http://secondculture.pirats.fr/?p=4990 Also, the SurveyMonkey was a great idea! The checkbox controls didn't seem to work on MOAP, so instead I've added the link to my little notecard giver parcel as text in Say. FYI...the notecard giver I have made is totally full perm, and has already has a notecard inside describing the TOS issue and calling on people to TAKE ACTION. If youz want copy for your store (or where ever) just let me know. As I said, it totally full perms so you change everything is you don't like some part.
  8. I got a page not found error on the AView.tv link Chic Err..excuse me. not "page not found," but the site couldn't find your post. But an update on what I have been working this past week. I contacted a number of editors / authors at various "gaming news" websites. (some you guys would definately have heard of) I have already received a few "nibbles," so I am hopeful that soon some major game website will pick this up and then run with it. This process is slooow going since it takes a while to write each email. So if anyone else cares to join in, there are lots of "gaming news" websites out there.

    DNS Problem

    You could also check for viruses, trojans,adware. Some of these sneeky pests mess with your DNS.
  10. Anyone know what kind of CPU and memory the sims run on? class 701, 801 doesn't say much :) The reason I am asking is given the new TOS (LL can now sell your uploaded works/products!), and given that SL continues to lose sims (48 just last week ~ 48*200 = $9600/mo loss of revenue right there) so i am looking into other 3D worlds like OSGrid, Kitely,etc. From my research I've found that full SL sims use one core, homesteads 3 per core, opensims 4 or more core (then one core reserved for misc processing). But one core of which chip? What kinda clock rate does that core run at? As a web developer I already have a dedicated server provider, and they have good rates. Now I am considering having them fire up another one for me, then I'll install Opensim, use one sims for me and possibly start renting sims myself. So making sure the current processors they have can run sims effectively is important. That's why i said class 701, 801, etc. is meaningless :) Well, meaningless without an association like class 801 is quad xeon running at 3ghz, or whatever. Which CPU or clockrate IS the important part

  12. "Wodwick" doesn't care about the content creators. We are not relevant. In his July interview @ AllThingsD.com he gloats about how "over half of our user base has been here 18 months or less" and having "400,000 new registrations a month." Of those 'core' residents, content creators would be just a fraction. Hey Wodwick? Just wait until those "400,000 new registrations" start logging into a world devoid of the works of us content creators! A world sterile, and barren of any creativity! What do think your resident retention rate will look like then? Just wait until the revenue from those content creators and merchants starts drying up! I know over the past month I've cut my tier by $100/mo. and other expenses (classifieds, MP 'enhancements') by ~ L$10000/wk. And I advocate everyone to cut what they can from their expenditures LL too! Anyway, if you guys get a chance check out that interview (if you haven't already). It is...entertaining. Especially considering some of the other things Rod Humble said (just weeks away from this TOS change). P.S. I have already sent an email to the person who wrote that interview (Eric Johnson) suggesting a follow-up article. But if anyone else cares to contact him-please do ( his email is at the top). The more attention that gets drawn to this issue the better
  13. Wow! Looks like some traction now on this issue as I've been busy getting a new web server up and running right. Which brings me to point out something to those saying LL should be using be using this new TOS wording to "cover their butts." As a web developer, when I go have a new dedicated web server fired up (or a VPS or shared hosting) the service provider doesn't have such a draconian TOS saying "anything I upload to server they have the right to sell / or license!" That's just ridiculous! THAT would shut down the internet almost immediately. No! LL could have totally have gone with a TOS wording such as "Hey Stupid! Don't upload stuff if you don't have permission!"...IF their intention was to decrease their IP liabilty, No! This will play out and it will ultimately be about LL's bottomline one way or another.
  14. Hi there. Sorry been busy trying to contact the last of the RL businesses in SL in my list...lol. TY Chic for posting that. Czari I will send you a 'care package' in world feel free to hand out, edit, or whatever
  15. A neighbor had an item I really liked and I was debating on whether or not to buy it. I first saw it a couple weeks ago (before I heard about the TOS change), and looked up the creators store on the marketplace. There it was-along with about 20 other products. Today out of curiosity I went back to that merchant's marketplace store-EMPTY! Interesting I think. Maybe just random, but the one item I was keeping an eye on has been removed from marketplace. Hrmm
  16. I have a whole host of things going on to get the word out. Several grid-wide ads, notecard givers, blah blah blah But by FAR the easiest method I have found to make an impact is letting merchants I have purchased from know about this change. a) I just made a little informative notecard about this change of TOS. (if you want a copy let me know) b) Then I went through my inventory looking for folders of products I had purchased. c) I right-clicked the product (or any notecards) and selected 'properties' to get the creator. d) I sent them an IM and dropped the notecard into the chat. I only did 5 IMs at a time. Usually 1 or 2 of those 5 would be online so I could then chat with them, and ask them to also let others know. The point being this was easy! No research, no setting up ads, or scripting. Just drag-n-drop, chat. Boom!
  17. Also, (I pointed this out in an earlier post) this TOS change allows LL to sell / licence the logos and marks of REAL WORLD COMPANIES with a presence in SL! I have been working hard to contact any I could find to let know, but if any of you know of some..lemme know Then, the link below is for our EU residents to enforce their rights. I found it on http://modemworld.wordpress.com https://www.secure.europarl.europa.eu/aboutparliament/en/petition.html Don't forget to let your friends / merchants you have bought from about the new TOS *** Aztral Aeon
  18. Most people haven't heard the news. Of the people I've contacted, 95% had no idea of the change to the TOS. A few thought it always was this way, fewer still did already know. THAT'S WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO HELP GET THE WORD OUT :smileywink: I believe we are in race against time! The faster we can show the number crunchers at LL a dip in their revenue, the faster we can get this TOS change reversed. IF YOU COULD SPEND JUST 5 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME AND HAVE THIS TOS CHANGE GONE-WOULD YOU? That is really all it will take! Just tell 5 friends, or merchants (ideally) you've purchased from about how LL can now take whatever they've created, then advertise and SELL those items on Amazon (or where ever) not giving the creator a single $L..and ask them to likewise tell 5 people. Then just watch how quickly LL revises their TOS! Or just ask me if you would like a notecard you may pass out. Passing out a notecard takes 1 second. A simple drag and drop into some chat windows is really fast! And you can do that least to help us all out - right?
  19. Thankz. Yes-just looking for any changes since the new Aug TOS went into effect. the dwellonit site pretty close to what i was looking for
  20. Has anyone been keeping track of SL stats (users/tranactions/etc.), or know somewhere that has? http://secondlife.com/xmlhttp/secondlife.php has an XML dump, wondering if anyone has seen a website where they've been storing this data over time. Thankz!

  22. Thank you! Finally have my grid-wide AD running (silly graphic took longer than expected). It just hands out a notecard I have written informing people about the TOS, hopely motivating them, then providing some ACTION_ITEMS of things they can do. Dropped some $L into this campaign. $L4k is all I can afford right now, but I'll keep at it. My resources are limited, but I KNOW some of you have more resources than I do. If you care at all about your content being sold by LL maybe you could drop some change into a networked AD yourself? I have graphic, a notecard and have used 2 ad networks So if you would like help..just let me know Again, this is one part of this crusade. If EVERYONE that reads this thread can tell JUST 3 people about the TOS change (asking them to also tell 3 people), then before long all residents will at least know. You can at least do that-right? Or you have a little bit of free time..just IM me. I'm trying to approach this problem on multiple fronts so I have lots of ideas of how YOU CAN HELP
  23. Ya know what? You people actually frickin annoy me! I mean other wimpering and whining in this thread (and maybe others) what have you done about the situation? Let me tell yaz. since yesterday I've researched the LL management AND the board members (a bunch of venture capitalists who I would guess are the investors). Alot of info can be had by a simple web search on their names-linkedin accounts, EMAILS. Anyone think about that? Anyone actually done something? Secondly, the top 10 or 20 largest groups constitude a sizable fraction of the SL population. After spending much of yesterday (and today) writing a notecard to them, and a notecard they may freely pass out I sent those out-asking for group notice. Sure...maybe they won't lift a finger, but AT LEAST I AM TRYING? What have you done? Thirdly, there are some real world companies / organzations with a presence in SL-correct? Anybone considered that maybe they (or more precisely their legal department(s)) would be interested in knowing LL can sell / licence any company logos (or other marks) they upload? So I've contacted a few so far. If someone would like to help doing more that would awesome On top of that I've also submitted news items to a few 'gaming news' websites, dropped my marketplace ads, and as soon as I'm done writing this post I'm funding a grid-wide ad campaign passing out the notecard I've written? (If you want a copy-just IM me). Then I'm gonna to look up merchants with alot of products and start contacting them too! Soooo..what have you done? Think it won't matter? Quitting before you even try? Yoda would say 'THAT is why you fail!" I say "quitters NEVER win!." Look, the officers and board members seem to think this change in TOS will profit them. IF you cut your SL expenditures down you can show them that it is gonna COST them instead. THAT is how you win! Happens all the time. This company or that company gets boycotted, or bad press then they retreat like cowards. LL is no different. Follow the money! Now is the time to get moving on this, or before long you could see a blazing banner on the marketplace (or viewer login page) where LL is selling stuff YOU CREATED on Amazon (or where ever they want) without giving you a dime. Not even taking you to dinner first. So how bout yaz stop whining and get off your freaking duffs before it too sore for you to sit down? yes?
  24. Would be great if everyone could help get the word out on this change to TOS. Been trying to contact founders of some of the large groups in SL to do a community service notice, not making much headway. If other could do the same it would be awesome.
  25. Linden Lab has actually started selling things LL selling content
