  1. Rotations are strange, in that they seem impossible to grasp until one day they aren't, and you can't see what the fuss is about. I think the stumbling block is that you need to stop thinking about multiplication, because that's not what you're doing. The * sign means in this context, ""translate by this rotation" and doesn't mean "multiply by" anything. The important questions are which objects you want to rotate, and what frame of rotational reference you want to use (world ruler vs local ruler in the edit window). Once you appreciate that that the numbers don't really matter
  2. It was but I think most people now associate the area with the Millbank Tower office block, with Tate Britain, with the Millbank TV studios, and with the Millbank Estate, an early public housing scheme, started in 1897 using bricks recycled from the old prison. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millbank
  3. I was thinking more of the impossibility of knowing, or even being able to think about, something outside the physical universe. It's like trying imagine what colours look like that are not part of the visible spectrum to us. We just don't have the conceptual equipment, even though we know they're there. Something that's not even subject to the same basic laws of physics as I am is so beyond my comprehension that I can't begin to think about it.
  4. I'm probably going to regret getting involved, but here we go. To put it simply, living organisms reproduce themselves. The second law of thermodynamics tell us that they will be subject to a degree of random change (mutation) during the process. Over time, some of these mutations, either on their own or in combination with others, will prove more successful at reproducing themselves than do organisms that lack these minor genetic alterations. The more successful the organisms that carry these mutations are at reproducing themselves, the more of them there will be, and
  5. I always try to limit myself to one script if I can and, unless I have to for one of the specific reasons mentioned above to do with multi-threading, I split them only if I run out of script memory or if the logic becomes too hopelessly complicated otherwise (though that's normally a sign the script needs rewriting rather than simply splitting, even though I might not immediately see how to organise things more elegantly and economically).
  6. In the meantime, there are plenty of rez zones in Bellissaria, the new Linden Homes continent, and plenty of places there to explore on foot as well as with a vehicle, so maybe if a couple want to take a stroll, they might start off their walk in one of those while we wait for other options to become available.
  7. And according to Nietzsche, it's all already happened an infinite number of times, and will all happen again an infinite number of times, throughout eternity.
  8. You or I might think we could write something to the OP's specific requirements that would be more efficient than the Swiss Army knife that is AVsitter, but it's not a project for a beginner scripter, and I think that, in practice, I would probably use AVsitter anyway, since why reinvent the wheel, even if the available wheel does have more bells and whistles than you need for the particular task in hand? (And, I have to say, that if I were writing it as a stand-alone script, I'd certainly study the AvSitter scripts first to see how Code Violet does it, and only then consider what I mi
  9. You can't take snapshots with LSL, at least not with the official viewer (and I don't think Firestorm or any of the other TPVs support it either) but I think you could reasonably easily set up the rest of what you describe by using the AvSitter tool (free and OS), particularly the Animation Sequences feature or the AvSequence Script. That doesn't require any scripting knowledge to do -- the whole point about tools like AvSitter is that the scripting is already done, and you simply need to configure the set-up with the values you want in order to achieve your desired outcome. So
  10. Try the Commerce Forum, where both the Inworld Employment and the Wanted forums might be appropriate. Of if you describe what you need, we might be able to help you write it for yourself (and even if you don't want to learn scripting, you might find it helpful in discussions with people you're considering hiring to write it if first you've clarified your ideas about what you want by describing them here.)
  11. Yes, I have. I've been using the technique for a couple of years now. You're welcome to try it yourself using the example I posted. Rez a box, put the test script into it, pay the box some L$ (which go straight back into your account, of course) and check the results here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aphV6xptbPCcmQsLv76angzxvDjrnAsXWrs4jjm2dXQ/edit?usp=sharing
  12. Yes, it's been discussed in several threads over the years, and nothing in my posts is particularly original -- I just thought it would be helpful to pull together what I've learned from those discussions and the articles they reference, along with what I've learned from working with G-Sheets and LSL for a couple of years now, on and off, and post a couple of examples in a new thread. I hope this helps people who are interested in learning how to connect to G-Sheets from SL, which I think offers us access to very powerful technology without having to set up a mySQL/php database, and ma
  13. Maria Korolov explains a basic method to post data to a sheet here: https://www.hypergridbusiness.com/2014/10/easier-google-spreadsheet-visitor-logger/ and she provides a code example here https://www.hypergridbusiness.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Easier-Google-Spreadsheet-Visitor-Logger-hardcoded.txt Based on that, this is how I construct a script to parse the spreadsheet URL and use that to post data to a sheet. This simple example might be used in a vendor, but the method works for anything. First, decide on the fields you want to store. For my vendor, I want
  14. And it turns out it's remarkably easy. I had made a note of this url some time ago when I saw it in a discussion here -- I'm sorry, but I can't remember any more than that at the moment. Anyway, I've been playing with it and it seems great for limited amounts of data -- there's a hard limit of 16,384 bytes you can receive if you set HTTP_BODY_MAXLENGTH in the http request event vs 65,536 in a notecard, but you can still fit a lot into 16 KiB, I've discovered. You need to read the article to understand how to use the script in the second link, but it's very simple if you feel c
