  1. Birchwood Academy Opening Celebrations at 1pm SLT from now until Sunday Birchwood Academy: Who Are We? We are an immersive roleplay sim that harkens after the good old days where education was important but good manners and respect were just as necessary. We want you to feel at home and participate in the school and extracurricular activities, whether you’re interested in becoming a student or joining our skilled staff. We are an elite girls-only boarding school with experienced staff in charge, using corporal punishment as a discipline tool. Please note that we only accept students that are 18 years or older, child avatars cannot attend. Our primary intention is to interact in a realistic and participatory way with all the staff and students attending the school. This will include but is not limited to, exciting and interesting classes, clubs, extracurricular activities, dorm events, field trips and much more. If this sounds like a school you’d enjoy as student or as teacher, please do visit our lovely Birchwood Academy at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Witzend/93/223/28 - there is often a student available at the front desk or you can explore our amazing campus at your leisure. Please dress modest. Nudity or exposed genitals will not be tolerated. You may also wish to read our Code of Conduct and Rules statement here: https://www.birchwoodsl.com/index.php?topic=6.0
  2. Give inventory, then delete inventory?

    Practically speaking I use two loops. One that loops through the inventory and either appends to a list for llGiveInventoryList() or sends the item directly with llGiveInventory(), depending on permissions. Then I sleep 5s. That might actually be a bit excessive... still not entirely sure why I even need to sleep, but it seems to solve the issue of missing items on delivery. It's one of those problems I can't reproduce and have to trust users' reports that some deliveries are incomplete. And then I loop through the list created for llGiveInventoryList (since that's the copy items, i.e. the ones remaining in inventory, the others are already gone) and delete them by name, with llRemoveInventory(). The actual list doesn't get modified during that process. Oh and Rolig, yes I've done that mistake before ~grins~. Specifically not realizing that looping through llGetInventoryName() and then running a llRemoveInventory() against it... doesn't delete all items. LOL. That was a "duh" moment for sure. Thanks for the answers. I'm glad I didn't miss anything obvious. Goddess knows that's happened often enough before. -Jenni
  3. Simple question and I am sure it's been asked before but I can't seem to find anything about it when searching: I have a prim with a list of inventory items, some transfer, some copy. Basically, I'll need to give the items to someone (no problem) and then delete the inventory. It occurred to me that I really don't know what the proper approach there is. Right now, in pseudocode I have: * Fetch list of inventory items * Give no-copy/transfer items individually * Give copy/no-transfer items in a folder * Delete inventory I've had reports of items not being delivered, which I attributed to the inventory delete happening too soon. I added a 5s sleep, that seems to have fixed the delivery issue. However... is there a way to know whether the inventory has been delivered? I don't even care if the person has accepted the inventory, all I want to know is if the prim has sent the items so I can delete the inventory. Thanks folks -Jenni
  4. Hi what I need is another layer for Maitreya. I've tried finding fullperm clothing that would lay close to the skin, but none is close enough. UV map doesn't matter, though ideal would be the default body UV. Ideally if anyone knows of a way to do this, let me know. If it requires a custom rig, also let me know including the price - it doesn't have to be an exclusive mesh. Here is why: I need to be able to apply scrapes, cuts and bruises automatically, without a dialog, and be able to fade those over time via script. I know there's at least two systems out there, but neither fit all that well and both are proprietary which does me no good. Thank you kindly - Jenni Darkwatch
  5. The ability to actually run on an average PC? A far better new user experience? A miracle?
  6. Like others said before, its a complex issue. One reason to limit scripts on venue patrons is responsiveness of things like danceballs and/or scripted vendors. Since sims don't prioritize scripts on parcel over worn script (as far as I know anyway, please do correct me if I am wrong), walzing in with scripts that consume a ton of frame time will lag aforementioned danceballs and vendors. It's less the number of scripts, more the time the scripts consume. That being said, having lots of scripts also eats into that time, therefore less scripts = better for venues. There's other things in some venues... like listeners on local chat, as often used in collars. OpenCollar is a prime offender there. Hoe complex ones avi is should be pretty irrelevant for the venue. LL gave us the tools to just turn obscenely render heavy avis into jelly babies or impostors depending on how much our systems can handle. In other words, if you do care whether other people can see you, worry about ARC. If you don't give a damn... go nuts on what you wear. I've seen venues enforce ARC limits, but I think that's pretty silly. Sadly not all creators offer demos to check out how well-made their items are. Many, even from very well known makers, are just flat out crap.
  7. Dual-use Debit/Credit cards as often given out by banks do seem to work btw (at least did for me, I've since switched to PayPal instead).
  8. Linux Viewers: Hide All Controls: Resolved

    Or if you use KDE... create a new Window Rule: System Settings->Window Behavior->Window Rules->(Button)New...->Window Class (Application): Exact Match do-not-directly-run-secondlife-bin->(Tab)Appearance & Fixes->Ignore global shortcuts Force Yes Save, apply, done. This will prevent ALT+TAB from working while the viewer has focus, but beyond that it works perfectly. I use those rules for putting SL window-less in the background of my desktop as "wallpaper" Maybe someone else can chime in whether or not something similar exists in other window managers.
  9. Product reviewing issue needs to be addressed

    Thanks but no thanks. I prefer to review something on my own volition. If anything or anyone "nudges" me to review, I generally give a scathing negative review.
  10. Flat 2048m² parcel supports 468 LI, ADULT rated land on Aulen (Zindra adult continent). Price is very low for a parcel on Zindra. Verify it yourself before buying :) If you'd rather rent: L$ 500/week, contact Jenni Darkwatch via IM in-world. You'll get full rights to the parcel except of course sale, but you can sub-rent it, manage parcel access lists, deed/return objects etc.pp. along with a friendly landlady that's been in SL for many years, owned land for many years and have renters since many years. Limo: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aulen/5/168/71 If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me. Happy New Year :) Jenni Darkwatch
  11. Which laptop should I buy?

    I have one of the cheaper ASUS ROG laptops with an nVidia 860M. SL runs perfectly on it. An acquaintance of mine has a MSI gaming laptop which also runs SL fine. The key is pretty much the GPU. Many laptops have very cheap GPUs which will barely run SL. nVidia tends to work best, followed closely by ATI with occasional problems and with a large performance gap Intel also works, on minimum graphics usually.
  12. 64-bit Ubuntu

    Presuming you installed all needed 32bit libs: Remove the libopenal* files from the Second Life lib folder. That forces the system libraries, fixing sound. For the mic... best I could come up with was to download the latest Kokua viewer and copy the libvivox* files from there. If you grab the 64bit version, the libraries are in the lib32 folder. Otherwise they're in the lib folder.
  13. could this work?

    You can split a mainland parcel any way you like. Just remember to lower your tier setting on the dashboard once you abandon the excess land.
  14. Nervous Beginner Domme Seeks Female Mentor

    A good way to start would be to attend the various discussions and classes, for example these from the Adult Community Education Society group, here's their calendar: https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=2pakplu8i9gdn1ls3picgrrm2o@group.calendar.google.com Hanging out at various friendly chat circles might also help. My personal preference for hanging out is The Velvet Thorn chat circle, they do have occasional classes too, are usually busy and have generally helpful staff. Dances and bi-yearly auctions help to get to know people if desired. Their webpage is at http://velvetthornfemdom.blogspot.co.uk/
  15. Hi in the last few days I keep having completely strange issues. Occasional packet loss spikes to >8%, strange error messages like the one below. Based on the error messages it appears to be an error on LL's side of things. I've even gone ahead and verified that I had no packet loss to various servers/sites I own or manage all over the world. No packet loss anywhere there, not even when sending 1000 1k payload packets. Screenie of the latest weird failure (on login screen):  Anyone else seeing increased failures in SL?
