  1. A very low grade card, despite the 4GB (only DDR3) with a small 128bit connection. Won't give you good graphics. In the 3 digit model number of Nvidia cards, the 2nd number is important. Should at least be a 5, better 6 or 7. Memory should be DDR5, connecction at least 256bit.
  2. That was announced in the Blog like 6 weeks ago: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Featured-News/Faster-Credit-Processing-amp-Upcoming-Changes-to-Fees/ba-p/3011794 The 3 Dollar fee is now the minimum, going up to max 15 Dollar, depending on how much you cash out. I wouldn't call the 3 Dollar for cashing out 4 Dollar too high - I would call a cashout of 4 Dollar too low.
  3. Next billing date: April 7th. Price: $120 including transfer fee. Grab it now - will go back to LL on Monday otherwise.
  4. Please contact me with price and next billing date. Thanks :-) Daniel Regenbogen
  5. When buying a private region directly from LL, the first monthly fee is included in the setup fee.

First thing: a homestead is not 200 dollars per month but "only" 125 (or 95 for grandfathered ones). And second thing: if you want more than 20 people on a region, you have to go for a full one (and have to pay for it 295/195 dollars). Cutting a homestead into 16 parcels is just crazy.

The only official way to convert Lindens to RL money is through Lindex and Linden Lab does not buy or sell and has never bought or sold anything there. It's all transactions between residents. That is such a well established and well known fact that it would never occur to anybody to doubt it. *.*.* Actually, you are wrong in that. LL does at least sell on the LindeX. What do you think they do with the fees they collect in L$? And it is a well established fact that LL also stabilize the LindeX rates if necessary. The LL sales on LindeX were reported in early years, but are not anymore for a few years now.
  8. Is there any chance for a change in the Private Regions land portfolio? Just this last week the SL grid size fell below the 25,000 regions number, since the Homestead Debacle more than 8,500 private region were lost, amongst them many beautifully developed regions that were showcases for what is possible in SL. Private region costs are too high, the region types don't cover the customers demands. I have Homestead customers who plead for some more prims, but the step to a full region is just too steep. A portfolio of full, half and quarter regions at a price tag of $250/125/65 should be possible and even profitable because of higher demand and actually adding more regions instead of losing them. Or, the smaller and almost cost neutral way: at least add a few more prims to the existing land products! 20,000 for a full region and 5,000 for a Homestead would go a long way already. And even more important: it would send a message to the customers that LL actually listens and understands...
  9. As it was said by someone else before: make a Skrill account and load it with your PaySafe-Card, then use the Skrill account for SL. One step more, annoying, but at least you will be able to get your money into SL.
  10. Personally I think the 27inch Retina iMac is overrated, and as Gavin already said, it has a huge amount of Pixels to push around by the graphic card, and that graphic card is from AMD which usually isn't as suited for SL like an Nvidia card. A Mac in general doen't perform as well in SL as a Windows machine with the same technical data (it is crazy, installing Windows via Bootcamp on a Mac you get a much better performance than under MacOS). That's why you should always grab the Mac with the best hardware (at least on the graphic card side), which would make the 27inch Retina iMac madly expensive. On the other hand even the non-retina 27inch iMac Display is beautiful. Sadly these iMacs nowadays only come with the Nvidia GT 755M graphic card, there is no option for a better one available anymore. If you want a 27inch iMac, look in the refurbished section of the Apple Store and grab one with at least the Nivida GTX 775M (2GB graphic memory) or if you are lucky with a Nvidia GTX 780M (4GB graphic memory). I use that model at the moment, and so far I wasn't tempted to install Windows on it :-)
  11. While Sansar sounds to be quite interesting, my main interest right now is still in SL (as it is for many who I talk to every day). It is good to know that there is no plan for closing its doors. For me, though, that is not enough. I would like to see some old problems worked on, the biggest being the badly shaped land product portfolio. Are there any plans for that in the near future? The grid is still suffering from the Homestead Debacle (just look at the declining grid size, losing more than 20 percent of regions since the high time). I'm not even speaking about a lower price in general, just that a region with a quarter of prims available should cost in the range of a quarter of a full region. That would allow to add something like a "half region" at around half the price of a full one. A different approach would be to raise the prim count for all region types. Is there any chance for long lasting bugs to be taken care of? Like the possibility for attackers to circumvent estate bans (not with new accounts, but people on the ban list still being able to come back). Could something be done about items that can do huge damage (like region crashers) sold on the marketplace? For a while I flagged them regulary - just to see them being sold without any reaction from LL instead of a fast removal. And finally: thank you for this thread! One of the biggest problems in all my SL experience since 2006 is communication or rather the missing of it.
  12. Naja, du koenntest dir eine Premium-Mitgliedschaft leisten, damit bekommst du nicht nur pro Woche 300 L$ ausgezahlt sondern kannst dir auch noch ein kostenloses "Linden Home" aussuchen, gibt es in verschiedenen Stilen und moebliert.

If they were, I assure you, we'd have see numerous people posting here about similar issues... the truth of the matter is that we haven't seen any such thing. I'm not saying that it's not an issue for some people besides yourself, just that it doesn't occur as often as you seem to think. I know next to nothing about using Mac laptops for SL, but I do know that Maddy has used them for years without the issue of which you speak and may be able to help you mitigate your supposed damages. Yet, you chose to dismiss her input and write off her successful use of the platform on a Mac laptop as some sort of anomaly. Your assertion may be entirely correct and yet, I'd wager that my anecdotal evidence far outweighs your personal experience. ...Dres Dres, feel free to ask around in the Macintosh User Group, the heat problem comes up there regulary, and they are *very* SL specific. Machines that run cool in more or less any other application add 30 or more degrees within minutes of running SL. Especially for densely packed machines like notebooks heat *can* be a killer. Which, in case of Macs, not only fits the mobile ones but to some degree also the iMac or the Mini. Just a little test I did now: Within 5 minutes of starting SL, the GPU temp went from 35°C to 72°C. And that's on a 27inch iMac which has a bit more breathing room than a MacBook. (1 minute after quitting SL, it is down to 50°C already.)

Tomarax, get "SMCFanControl" and use it to manually push up the fan speed to maximum when running SL. The automatic fan speed control from Apple doesn't work good enough to keep the temps down under the impact of the SL viewer, at least with any kind of MacBook. With mine it makes a difference of roughty 85C to 60C (185F to 140F). The MacBook becomes a noisy **bleep**, but at least not an oven plate :-)
  15. Man kann Gruppen nicht direkt loeschen - allerdings braucht eine Gruppe immer mindestens zwei Mitglieder. Also alle anderen rauskicken, und die Gruppe wird nach einigen Tagen automatisch geloescht.
  16. I have 1 Homestead for sale, billing date is the 7th, so just paid and coming with a full month of tier. Price idea: $275. Please contact me in world.
  17. There actually *is* a GT705, it is the lowest of the lowest in the 7xx series: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2578/geforce-gt-705.html
  18. Phil, you will discover a whole new world if you got a real gaming card instead of an office card. Seriously, if you want to enjoy all the nice&shiny that came to SL over the last few years, anything below a x5x nvidia will not be enough. And the 705 mentioned in the OP's question is even lower than yours...
  19. No. Not at all. Nvidia's for SL should have at least a 5, better a 6 as 2nd digit in the model number. The 705 is for office work and nothing else.
  20. Yes, in world join the group "for sale by owner", there are almost always used regions for sale at much lower price than in the official landstore. Keep in mind that the billing date transfers to the new owner, too, so a region sold at 400 dollars with next billing date 3 weeks away is a better deal than one sold at 400 dollars with next billing date only 3 days away.
  21. Yes, you always need at least one full region to be able to get a homestead, no matter from whom.
  22. You were in need? You were able to grab other land before your old rent ran out, couldn't have been much of a need...
  23. Doesn't look to me like the same situation, she very clearly wrote: "I paid for some weeks (requirement just one week but I paid a few)" To me that looks like she actually paid for rental time, not into a balance. BTW, I would really like to know what system/company that is, maybe you can tell me via inworld IM. I rent some shops myself and never encountered something like that, only the normal rental boxes (nowadays mostly Casperlet, in earlier times often Hippo), and they instantly turn money into time.
  24. Wait, this is something completely different from the original poster. She haid paid for rent, the paid money was added to her rental time. I was under the impression that the same was true for you. If this is not the case and you had "free money" deposited there, they have to pay it back. And you should never do that again, why keep your money in the account of someone else, banking is forbidden anyways. If you want to park money outside your main account, just make an alt and give it to him. If your money was "converted" into rental time, you're out of luck and what all others and I wrote already about contract is applieable.
  25. Just how is your buying your own region a problem for your former landlord? Why should it even be? You could have simply timed your move smartly and used up what you paid for already before getting your own region. There is no stealing involved at all, the landlord kept his part of the contract, his only obligation beeing to provide you with the rental land you paid for. The "goods" that were paid for were received - the buyer or in this case the tenant aka you simply decided to throw them away. Calling this stealing (wrongly) is actually a very real crime called slander. A contract is a contract is a contract. Turn on your brain before entering one. SL business is no game, it is for very real money.
