  1. From a guys point of view: Maybe we don't know why? We are guys after all wink. I think women with weapons and especially those that know how to use them are sexy but I honestly couldn't give you a detailed list why, I just do. And it certianly helps if the women are sexy are to begin with. Would I find a 60 year old 300 lb woman all sweaty holding a butcher knife sexy, um probably not. But a good looking woman holding a beautifully made sword, yes I find that sexy. Men like sexy women, men like cars, men like beer, men like weapons. Combine any of these and its just a bonus lol. But on the other side I also like women that are very feminine. I like the long hair and painted nails with a pretty dress or skirt. I Iike the school girl look as well. What isn't a turn on to me is tats. Women with tatoos are just a turn off to me, especially big ones. I mean if its a little bunny, or a whnnie the poo on your ankle that is one thing. When half your body is covered in tats like someone in a prison gang it just doesn't do much for me. Men simply are not that complicated. I don't like pizza with everything, you know why? Because I don't like pizza with everything. Extra cheese and pepperoni for me please. I like dr pepper and hate pepsi. Why? Because dr pepper taste good and pepsi taste like crap. I don't know why, that is just how it is. Women are thinkers, the wheels in their minds are always turning. Thoughts run frantically through their heads and they are always trying to make sense of things. Men not so much. If you ask us what we are thinking and we say "nothing" We are not trying to hide anything. We probably were thinking of nothing, it happens, and you ruined the perfectly thoughtless moment lol. And if you ask again, what we will be thinking is "why does this girl keep asking me dumb questions? I told her already. I wonder if I could get her take her shirt off? Man I could really use a beer. OMG, she is asking me another question!" Obviously I am making us sound overly simplied, but I think you get the point. We find women with weapons sexy simply because we think its sexy. We never bothered to ask ourselves why.
  2. I care to a point since I build in sl and work with sculpties quite a bit. It will all depend on how they implement it. Think mesh as a super sculpty. You can get more detail and a smoother look with mesh. So for a vehicle builder mesh is a way to fix some of the minor problems we currently have with sculpts and may help in making the vehicles a bit more realistic looking. I for one honeslty don't know how it all works, I have a basic idea but at this point I couldn't make one. I do know they have programs that will convert sculpts to mesh, so that is a plus. Once its up and running and everything is ironed out I may play with it.
  3. By rebooting your modem and router it resets your connection. You may be experiencing a slow down in your connection. By resetting these it might fix it.
  4. straight from the sl wikki: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Streaming_Video_in_Second_Life
  5. A tuner card in your computer just lets you use your pc monitor for a tv screen basically. Which is kind of handy if you don't have a tv near your computer. You can watch live television on your computer while you do other things, or just use it for a tv screen. In order to use it for sl it would have to stream from a server. Just like being a DJ, you would have have to have a server or a stream in order to use your computer as a server. And I am not entirely sure it would work with video because it may have to be formated a certain way. SL tvs basically work the same way the radios do, they are just fancy stream changers. You can add the stream manually if you want. So if you had a stream with your info on it you could stream it into sl. And then there is the media on a prim thing, but I have no idea how that works. So in theory it could work, maybe. But I am not sure exactly how you would go about it. First you would have to figure out how to get your tv card to put out info sl could use, Then you would need to pay for a stream, or a server in order to get it into sl. This is how the dvd players inside sl work, all the movies are on a server somewhere and when you choose a movie it streams the movie into sl. And I am pretty sure they require quicktime to work. I am not exactly how it would work in your case though. Basically you would be doing the same thing Youtube is. And I am also not sure how it would work with live tv. My thinking is it won't keep up and the stream will be lagged or not constant. It would work better with pre recorded material I think. These are all just guesses on my part though. You need to find someone that hosts movies for sl and maybe they could give you a better explanation.
  6. ya heat will cause you computer to shut down. As well as not having enough power to run everything. If its not an over heating problem possibly getting a bigger power supply might help. It could also be a software problem. Something might be conflicting with the sl program and crashing your computer. The power supply problem is pretty common though. People go out and buy a newer card or other hardware that requires a beefier power supply and are still running it on a stock one which just can't keep up. And power supplies work a lot like car audio amplifiers. You can't always take the ratings to heart. A stock or cheap power supply might say it s 350 or 400 watts, but that is peak power right before it shuts down. The same with cheap audio amplifiers. They might say they put out 1,000 watts of power, but that is with all the channels added together at peak output. And after market power supply will normally put out what it is rated for at a constant state. As will a better audio amplifier. Its rated as RMS power instead of peak power. A better amp will supply say 100 watts of power per channel rms. Which is how a better power supply will work. The peak power output will actually be much higher. Upgrading your cpu will also draw more power, as will adding more components like drives or mulitple usb hardware that requires the computer to power that device. Like USB driven speakers and what not. You take a stock 350 watt power supply and upgrade the cpu, or over clock it, add a larger video card, larger monitor (which requires a higher resolution) and then add some usb powered devices or multiple drives and extra fans and suddenly your power supply can't meet the demands and becomes unstable. There are various software programs you can get for free that will monitor your heat if you think that is problem. Not sure if there is a way to montitor the actual power draw though. But if you isntalled a better graphics recently and now your computer is crashing I would guess its the power supply. Could simply be your power supply is going bad too. These are not the only things that will cause it though. There are a number of things that can cause a computer to crash both software and hardware related, even bad drivers can do it. I think bad memory can do it as well, so doing a memory test might not hurt either. If it were me the first thing I would do is test your system under a load by using a program designed to stress your system like prime 95, furmark or heavy load. If it doesn't seem to be over heating or shutting down do to power issues you could try re installing windows and see if that fixes it.
  7. Nope, not our shop but that is our shell and our track in the background. We do supply shells and parts to lots of car makers though. I can't say for sure if that was obtained legally or not but I can check. His name is familiar but I don't know if its from doing business with him or banning him lol. I will check with the owner, she has records of all of it. In order to get our stuff full perms you have to sign a license agreement stating that you will only use the parts in builds and they have to be no transfer when done. For 500L I am sure it doesn't have our scripts unless they are the older gen3 scripts which we do sell as a kit. Thank you for bringing it to my attention though. I will have the owner check it out and if they are not legal we have them removed from the market place. Maybe I will take some pics of some of my cars and put them on my flicker account or something.
  8. hyp·o·crite     noun 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.  According to that definition, no it doesn't make me a hypocrite, nor does it discredit my advice. I would look at more as I am a person with first hand knowledge of the dangers of doing it, which makes me more qualified to give the advice than someone that has never done it. In my case I know the person I gave my info to very well and had good reasons to do it. Still doesn't change the risk involved in doing it. "(than you for all the mr and mrs obvious for you stupid comments) this person just asked for help, not you opinionated tudes, so back away, i hope they have already repaired the damage and getting on with Slife." And your post helps this thread in what way? Other than to try and make someone else look bad? All you did was insult me and state the obvious like everyone else.
  9. nope, once you purge them they are gone as far as I know.
  10. Is that mustang one of our cars Keli? It looks like our mustang, one of our shells for sure. and its infront of our track too. https://d3qcduphvv2yxi.cloudfront.net/assets/2707062/view_large/gasser%20front2_001.jpg?1292935485
  11. I am the CEO of Kustom Klassics, we sell and build custom cars that are high prim and moddable. We sell parts as well. And do custom paint and mods. As for posting pictures, I have hundreds of cars, I wouldn't know were to start lol. We also sell full perm shells if you want to build your own car. We mostly sell American muscle cars since we have a drag strip on the sim. But we have all kinds of shells available. And we currently have a buy two get one free deal. Buy any two cars in the same day and you get one free, and you can gift it as well. And I will custom paint any of our cars for 500L. Our cars range from 1000L to 1500L and are moddable and adjustable via a notecard. And we offer some of the best service in the sl auto industry. Here is a link to our youtube channel where there are some instructional videos and a video of some qualifying for one our drag races. http://www.youtube.com/user/vladihazelnut?feature=mhee If you want more info contact me inworld and I will be happy to show you around the shop and our two sims. Or just do a search for Kustom Klassics. There is also a link in my profile. All our cars and parts are copy/mod, we encourage the vehicle modding culture in sl. Our sim is a sandbox too if you don't have a place to work on your car. Haru motors is a popular car, but they are fairly limited to what you can do with them once you get them. The top three cars in drag racing right now would be Kustom Klassics, T&S motors (amber) and Raver Designs. the number one most copy botted cars in sl are the Pro Street and Best Cars from tednerd. Not that he copy bots them, but he gets ripped off the most. Mosts of the freebie cars you see or stolen versions of his cars.
  12. I don't see how they would know the difference, most debit cards show up as a credit card. Just depends on how you use them. Not sure about the prepaid ones, never used one.
  13. Just go look at some and see what looks right for you. Prices range all over the place. My advise is don't buy the cheapest one you see, and you don't need the most expensive either. I personally use a GameCom by Plantronics and like it. Its big but its built well and has a good mic in it. It wasn't very cheap either, over 50 bucks if I remember correctly. And for sure get a head set, not a desktop mic, those have serious echo problems in sl. And when you use a headset remember to shut your desktop speakers off or it will echo too.
  14. I normally except friend requests from anyone, then just weed them out later. As for random tp requests, that it is the easiest way to get off my friends list. If it continues just AR them for harassment and mute them. I have many pet peaves in sl, that one is kind of far down on the list, but its on it. One of my biggest is that I do customer support for our products in sl. It drives me nuts when someone asks for help then doesn't pay attention, doesn't do what I tell them to do, or goes afk while I am helping them. I dropped what I was doing to help you, you can at least pay attention while I try to help you.
  15. You can switch to a viewer that doesn't have that, but be forwarned all of the older viewers will eventually stop working or be broke and not function very well. For starters if you use a viewer that doesn't have web profiles you won't be able to change rights for others our yourself. Like give people edit rights and stuff like that. And then when mesh roles out there will be even more issues with an older viewer.
  16. Ditto what madman said. Never give your password out period. You can not imagine the amount of people I have seen stabbed in the back in sl by so called "best friends". If you give someone access to your account just expect to never use it again. Sl may help you, but I wouldn't bet money on it since you willingly gave them the password. That being said I have done exactly what I said not to do. (Do as I say, not as I do lol). My inworld boss and business partner has all my info incase I for some reason bail on sl or something happens to me in real life. But my account doesn't have a valid credit card linked to it so there is no damage to be done that way. The worst that could happen is she could take over my account and I wouldn't be able to access it anymore. In my case if that were to happen I would either use one of my other accounts or just walk away from sl and find something better to do with my life.
  17. Like others have said, the radio simply changes the radio stream url in the land settings. You can do it manually or a get a stream changer. There are many of them on the market place ranging from free to rather expensive. Most sl TV's will change the radio stream as well. In most cases you will have to deed the radio to the parcel though to make them work. I actually sell stereo systems for sl, using the fada script which works pretty nice, but you don't need one really. You can down load win amp I think its called and go to the shoutcast website and browse all the channels then pull the url from win amp and plug that into the stream in the land settings. A sl radio just make it a bit more easier is all. But even with the radio you need to load the urls into a notecard or something. And they change often so sometimes when you buy a radio have the stations will be dead. There are few that search for channles though. Other option is to shut of the music if you don't like it and can't figure out how to change it. Me personally I have never been into listening to the radio or watching tv or movies in sl. I have a stereo and tv in real life. If I want to watch tv or listen to music I will just turn one of them on hehe. The Music stream is nice for live events though. Or watching a movie at a drive in or something with friends. But if I really want to watch a movie I would rather watch it on my 42 inch plasma than on a 22 inch lcd screen in sl. But that is just me, others love the feature.
  18. The SL veiwer should work fine on widows 7, it must be some other program conflicting with it. Possibly a security setting, or maybe a firewall or anti virus setting. Try dissabling any anti virus or anti mallware programs you have installed and then see if it will install. My guess would be you have an anti virus software that is flagging it and not allowing it to install. You may also have to logged in as administrator for it to install. Its hard to say without actually seeing it. But I run windows 7 as do thousands of others and I can assure you the viewer will work fine on it. I have been using windows 7 since it was in beta with no problems.
  19. probably depends on where you go and what time. I show almost 60,000 people online right now and its the middle of the day in the U.S. . So most are probably still at work, providing they have jobs considering our crappy economy.
  20. Kind of curious what his orginal criminal act was, being from what I read he went to jail for violation his parole, among other things that they dropped. I wonder what he did originally that got him in trouble. Obviously from the terms of his parole/probation it was some sort of computer fraud. Could have been something else though. And having contacted with two other known felons, both with the three felony charges. Um what happened to the 3 strikes your out thing? Guess it depends on the felonies you commit.
  21. well in the bottom picture it looks like you are on the ground and its sunset. In the other picture it looks like you are at a fairly high altitude and its mid day. The time and the altitude will effect the sky. To make an accurate comparision both pictures would have to be in the same location at the same day cycle setting.
  22. Sounds like an issue on your side, I don't have to tweak anything. I do, but just because I like things a certain way. I tweak various graphics and debug menu settings to where I like them. But I could just as easily log in, set the slider to ultra and be on my way. And that is with Phoenix, firestorm Kirstens and official LL viewer. I haven't tried the new mesh viewer yet. Rather than using analogies why don't tell use exactly what you have to tweak and what sort of problems you are having. Maybe someone could help if we knew what was really going on. As for you original analogy, I used to be an ASE certified mechanic and I can tell you without a doubt if you need to do all that to drive down any road you need a new car lol.
  23. are you using a headset only? or do you also have speakers attached to the system? If the sound is running through the speakers as well the microphone will pick it up miliseconds later and cause an echo. Same for others. If they are using a desktip mic and speakers you get this quite frequently, but you can have a headset and have it happen too. If say the headset is really loud or they also have speakers and have left them on. I am guilty of this sometimes lol. Also if you are using any voice morphing or filting software the setting may be wrong and you are picking up an echo. You have to make sure your computer is set up so you don't hear your own voice through the speakers. open your sound properties and make sure the microphone you are using is your default device. Check in the properties to make sure "listen to this device" is unchecked. Its under the listen tab. Also make sure "Stereo Mix" is not turned on under the recording tab. Other than I don't know what could be causing an echo. I normally only hear an echo though other people because they have their speakers on with their headset or they are using a desktop mic that is not set up properly.
  24. A security system would be one way to keep unwanted people away. And it doesn't matter if you have doors or not. Most of them you can set the distance so it doesn't have anything to do with prims. You could have an empty lot but set the perimeter to 20 meters or something and anyone that comes in that area will get booted. The down side is they are pain in the ass if you have frequent visitors. You will either have to shut it off before someone comes to visit, or put them on a White List so they don't get booted. You can aslo restrict acces through the land manager for that parcel. You can set it so only group members can come on, or set up a list of allowed people. And if you own the land you could make a seperate parcel just for your house or work area leaving the rest of the land public. And if you own or manage the whole sim you can choose to make the entire region public or not and set up access lists. As for the ban line thing, that makes no sense to me considering that is something you can control viewer side. If you don't want to see them, you just turn it off.
  25. If it was serious enough and you can get a LL aware of it they will ban them. Like say someone confided in me that they were gay in real life, or that they were playing as a female but were really male. If I went around telling everyone this person was gay or was really a guy and he didn't want others to know LL could ban me. You can even get banned for discolosing someones alt. An even more serious case would be if you knew persons real life name and address and were giving it out. But in the end it is the internet, and the golden rule is unless you don't want everyone to know, don't tell anyone! And if they have real life info about you that you have not disclosed with anyone then you need to contact LL for sure. Not just file an AR, contact them directly by phone or something.
