  1. All you need to do is go into Nortom and tell it to restore and exclude this file, from then on it will work fine.

    a land question

    You are probably not going to like my answer, but here goes; I would never do such a thing for the public, so have no idea how to suggest advertising it. While I appreciate your altruisum, I really don't see a point in what you are trying to do. If you were doing this for some friends, it might make sense, but to do for the general public, it simply doesn't. There are many sandboxes spread across SL that fill this need and I have friends that have never created things anyplace else. A little laggy from time to time yes, and griefers do sometimes show up, but there really is not any limit to prims you can use in a normal build and space is not an issue. They simply rez a platform up around 3Km, sit on a box and go for it. In fact, I still use them from time to time, even though I own a sim. Why? Because they are a good place to rez HiPrim items or rez something that takes a large amount of space on various levels. Also good for rezzing coaleced items since I dont have to worry about cleaning it up if I miss one or two of the items, the sim will return them. While griefing in a sandbox can be an issue, normally you can stop most of it by simply working up high and sitting on a box. Lag can also be a problem, but that might be an issue on a little mainland parcel too. In the end, unless you thinking of providing this building area for a very specific reason, I think you are just wasting your time and tier. _________________________________

    a land question

    One thing you really have to consider when creating a sandbox is available prim. A 1024 m2 parcel only has 234 prim available which greatly limits the type and scale of things that can be created there, and how many people can use the spot. For an "on the ground" type of sandbox, I would personally consider 4096 m2 the minimum size. There are several ways to help stop griefing. First off the easiest is to limit access and permissions to group members. While this does present its own issues by requiring that anyone using it belong to a group, you can restrict entry, the ability to rez, the ability to move prims onto the parcel and the ablility to run scripts so that griefing is much harder to do. Using a skybox type of solution, a platform for example, placed up high, also helps because it helps keep the curious from seeing it as a target. However, above the ban lines anyone can cross the parcel, so if permissions are not restricted, it allows someone to grief from above using objects. If I were doing this, I would use all the tools. I would create a large platform up at 3000m, I would make the access group only, I would restrict all permissions to that group (rez, object entry and scripts) and I would get the largest parcel of land I could afford. I would also most likely charge a small monthly fee to belong to the group, or a fee to use the parcel, to help offset the costs. Hope this helps ______________________
  5. You have 76 posts showing so I have to assume you understand what this Blog is for. That makes me believe this is nothing but a Troll. And Peru's capital is Lima. /me adds your name to my ignore list

    I don't see you really responding to several of the suggestions. However, it seems moot at this point, so time to mark it answered.
  7. Actually I believe that employee number is now approx 270, at least 7 of which are VPs or higher.

    Ghost prims do not show in show in prim count, they are a collision box that server is maintaning even though the prim is no longer visible or clickable. Those require a sim restart to clear. What you seem to have is prims located on your parcel that you can not find. They can be anywhere within the area of your parcel up to 4096 meters and very difficult to find, especiall if, as they often are, they something like a watch, very small. Two things I often try. Select the Show option in About Land > Objects, this causes the object to be highlighted in white. Now go into Night view and camera at different levels and look for the white glow. Remember you need to move within your view distance to see it. Sit on a box and bump it up using edit in vertical jumps equal to your view distance. Second option, and in your case probably the best: In About Land > objects, refresh the list that shows who owns the prims on your land, click the listing that shows the 51 prims and return them. You can go into edit afterwards and rez the object from your lost and found folder to see what it is. I suggest being in edit before you rez the object so you don't lose it again. _________________________
  9. Try saving as .tga files. I use both and have no problems, but a lot has to do with the program you use to save the files. Also, it often takes time for a texture to appear clear when placed on a prim, especially if it a large file, like 1024 or more. _____________________________
  10. Print yourself up a nice sign.. WILL WORK FOR LINDENS... and find yourself a high traffic area to stand at. If you use your map, you can see where there are a lot of dots. Those are people. I would suggest a crowded spot on Zindra to start with.
  11. Thanks to all who contributed. This appears to be a well documented issue and there are several jira entries for correcting or to document it. It does not seem to be very well known to residents though. Maybe spread the word. I am marking this as answered.
  12. I tried using the jira to research this, and my search returned over 5300 entries. I just find it too cumbersome to really use. I appreciate the links and voted on the issue there.
  13. Well, after seeing how many people seemed to think it was a mega-prim issue, I went back and looked at my sim. I have a set of off sim mountains that give the island the look of being in the center of an old volcanic cone. While they are sclupted mega prims, I did not see how this could be causing the issue. I assumed they did not extend to the island center, but they do, and it is. The bounding boxes for these mountains extend up substanially beyond the visible height, and once above that BB, you can sit on an unscripted prim. So it appears that because the prim or object is within the BB of the mega-prim, the system sees you as trying to sit on the mega-prim and does not allow it. I found on my sim that once above 144.039m in alt I could sit on a plain box. I then moved the mountains up .5 m and could no longer sit on the same box. Moving it up to 144.539 caused me to be able to sit on it again, so, there was the answer. As a side note, they also cause the land of my sim to not show on the map. ( /me slaps forehead - should have been a better clue) Thanks to all who contributed and my apologies to Boroondas Gupte for doubting his answer. A clear case of condemnation before investigation and I stand corrected. I will leave this up for a day and then close it as answered.
  14. I have not seen it happen on any mainland region. I am not so inexperienced that I would be talking about a problem caused by another prim or mega prim. This happens currently anywhere on my region, a private homestead sim. I have seen it on other private regions as well. You rez a prim and then attempt to right click it and sit, and you get a No place to sit error. In the past, restarting the sim corrected the issue for some, which I pointed out in my OP. That would not occur if another prim was conflicting with the attempted sit. Now though, nothing seems to correct. Thanks for trying though. I thought I would ask here hoping maybe someone else had seen the issue and knew a correction, but after several days on the list here, only one answer that is unfortunately not helpful, I guess I will open a ticket on it. Not holding out much help there either. _______________________________
  15. Oh my, 50 bucks for something she intends to make money on by selling tons of them, that might take an hour to whip out by the scripter, yeah, way out of line. What would you suggest would be fair, SL wages, say - $L30 an hour? The suggestions are good, check the library and write one. Then, when you are totally frustrated and things do not work well, see how you feel about that 50 bucks. :-) Sorry, don't really mean to take it out on you, just tired of people thinking scripting is something to be taken for granted and not paid for. Just because anyone is allowed to script, it doesn't mean anyone can, or should. When scripting limits come into play, I will be really interested to see how much stuff gets broken.
  16. On and off I have been having problems on my sim and other places, where I cannot sit on an unscripted prim or object. I used to be able to restart the sim and this would correct it, at least for a time. This only seems to happen on private regions, but I can not find anything in region management that would seem to effect this. Now it seems to be a perminent issue. This is a real handicap for building and sometimes moving quickly to a spot (rez a prim, sit, edit location). I have totally given up on the that POS jira issue tracker. I tried "cannot sit non-scripted" and "cannot sit unscripted" and "cannot sit prim" and "cannot sit object unscripted" in the quick search. In every case it returned 5380 some entries going all the way back to early '07 and no matter how I sorted it, I could not find anything current on this, but did find several UnResolved from 2007.  What a total POS the jira is. Useless as tits on a turtle. Anyway, does anyone have any information on this obvious bug?  Any usefull suggestions?
  17. OP: "why can't I TAKE MY OWN MONEY back out to that SAME ACCOUNT DIRECTLY????" Thats a big Wahhhhhh if ever there was one. Bottom line, its the rule as they currently stand. They clearly show what you can and can not do with regards to selling Lindens for money and transferring that money out of SL. Don't like the rules, then don't play the game. How freaking hard is that? Screaming here, and calling us assholes just puts you on my "Never respond to this jerk again" list. _________________
  18. You used all caps on your OP, basically you shouted at us, other users, because you don't like a LL policy. And you call us assholes? ESAD! ____________________
  19. "Why" doesn't matter. You can't, and that is clearly stated in all the stuff you should but probably did not read when you signed up, when you sold lindens, etc. Easy Solution: Get a PayPal debit card, then you can actually get money back against any fees. ______________________ I posted this before I read the rest of your sniveling posts and responces. Don't expect much help in the future, after all, we are all just a bunch of assholes right?
  20. Good luck with that.... Might mean one of them might actually have to crack a manual someplace. They sure couldn't be bothered when they did this forum update. ______________________________
  21. SL has always had, and continues to have, issues with ATI cards. While driver updates etc can make a big difference, the only cards I have had contiued good performance from are NVidia. My latest is a 9800 series and it works great. You might, if your main use is SL, reconsider your purchase of ATI. No recommending anything, just giving you my experience. __________________
  22. Can you post some specifications for your new machine. Sounds to me like a connection issue. Try the following sites and see what you get: http://www.speedtest.net http://www.pingtest.net (link on speedtest) You may be having issues connecting with your local router, assuming you are using one to connect more than one computer. Is it wireless? __________
  23. Land can be a bit tricky unfortunately. The information Cin gives is correct, but the LL chart is a little misleading as the tier kicks in at 1 m2 above the number shown (512 is free, 513 = $5 us) since tier kicks in for premium members after the first 512m2. Also, on many rental properties (not recommending rentals, just explaining) the land owner has some land not used for rentals and so has a surplus of prim which they will allow renters to use by purchasing extra. Suggestion, figure out what you want to do and how many prim you will need to do it, then look around for land to purchase that will give you enough prim. You pay tier to LL in USD if you purchase mainland or a full sim. If you rent land it completely depends on what the land owner has setup since you are in a business relationship with another resident, not Linden Lab. Be aware, if you do not buy mainland, you are actually renting the land, no matter how it appears or what anyone says. Your landlord is another resident and LL will not get involved in any dispute you may have. While the majority of land owners who rent property are honest, there are some real horror stories out there. A simple example: you rent a parcel, put your nice no copy home out, all your furniture, etc. The actual land owner fails to pay their tier. One day you login and attempt to go home, only to find it no longer exists. Your stuff is gone and you have no recourse. _____________

    A question about land

    Then all you need to do is select "Make Donation" when you deed the land. That makes you responcible for the tier. Then in your group menu, make sure that the only role that shares financial is the owner role. I was simply explaining what the options were when you deed to group. ____________________
