    How does your avatar look today ?

    You are not the only one. I tend to wear 'flat' feet when going barefoot.

    Where are the regulars?

    Finding unanswered questions is easy as that is most of the posts in ANSWERS. But, I understand what you mean. The problem is the OP seldom marks a question as answered. So, searches for JUST unanswered questions is pointless and any forum features for that work poorly. I think the designers expected that because there are few if any features specifically for users to work with answered vs unanswered. Instead I am looking for posts I have not yet read. Those shown to me in bold. I find the HOME page almost useless, but it has a tiny bit of interesting stuff. It gives no indication of what I have or have not read. Some of the FORUM, KB, BLOGS, ANSWERS, GRID STATUS, and ACTIVITY pages do provide indication of what is unread via bold or plain text titles. Others do not, like Blogs and KB. Within those read vs unread is not indicated nor does the idea of read vs unread make much sense. Other sections like FORUM use the bold text for unread content within. Here I have to keep up with marking sections read if I want the 'unread bold' to mean anything of value as I will not read most of the posts. ACTIVITY (top menu) may be the most useful for many of any sections. It has four subsections; All Activity My Activity Unread Content Content I Started Content I Follow Members I Follow Content I posted In Unread Content Content I Follow All Activity sorts by default as most recent first. At the bottom of each item (expanded view) is the time since posted. The section updates in near real time. I find Unread Content is almost the same. Content I Follow has stuff about where you have posted, sort of assuming you'll follow yourself, I guess, and whatever you add. You can follow people. To make these more useful I mark subsections as read. Then the activity section are less crowded. I think that also helps me avoid being show 5 year old posts I haven't read, which in ANSWERS is a good thing. Unread Content has a whole thing of sorting options at the top. Supposedly the designers thought this section so useful the put a link to it on every page of the forum, rightish side just under the image banner. Finding questions you haven't read shouldn't be hard, UNLESS there are no such questions, which is often the case. Following Linden members provides interesting information.

    Need ideas for drugs

    Drugs... uppers, downers... pot, coke, alcohol... Trying to imitate RL in SL for drugs seems to me to be WAY restricted. I can see you might script control of the avatar via RLV to have motor control and balance issues... vision could be changed... passing out... But, most drugs have an effect on the psychological and emotional experience. They don't manifest significantly in the physical realm, other than as mentioned above. You might pick up some of the post drug experience using a HUD that gave control of the avatar to others after a blackout or becoming incapacitated. Simulating a roofie shouldn't be that hard, degrees of conscious but out of control. Might be popular with the BDSM crowd.

    Last names coming back

    Having first and last names was a feature of SL years back. That is how I got my name, Nalates Urriah. New residents have been requesting last names. Existing residents have been requesting the ability to change names. An attempt to meet customer demand came with Display Names. That only sort of worked but still the requests for last names and changeability continued. The Lab is now adding the feature to meet customer demand. Giving customers what they ask for is seldom if ever considered a bad decision.

    New To Creating In World Store

    One of the problems you'll run into over time is aging Landmarks. Think of having 100 products in the marketplace and then needing to move your in-world store... it sucks. All those LM's in the marketplace items need to change. So, consider the value of a permanent location in SL.

    Where are the regulars?

    No... that is one section to high. There are a couple of 'mark as read' buttons. One is just under the forum banner image labeled 'Mark Site Read'. That is not the one I meant. The other is just above the list of threads. The second one will mark only the current section as read. If you are reading this post, the button does not show. You have to return to 'Go to questions listing' (near bottom of page opposite 'next unread') to see it. If you go up another section, e.g., Answers, the button hides again. You can use the 'Unread Content' just under the banner image to bring up a list of all the posts/threads you have not read.

    Where are the regulars?

    With finding... use the button that appears in the Answers subsection e.g., Everything Else for this thread, to mark all as read. It is just left of the 'Ask a Question' button. This mostly solves the problem. New posts then standout. Subsections with unread posts are bolded.

    You are correct... but, there is some number of people that will totally LEAP to the conclusion an avatar named 'RussianBimbo' will be the avatar of a RL Russian bimbo, which says something about their bimbo-ness. The only real unknown in that debate is how many will make that leap and never move beyond it.

    Animesh in Firestorm - how soon?

    Ummmm.... sort of can. The basic agreement is all viewers need to show the same "SHARED" experience. That is a bit hard to get one's head around, but my being able to set my WL to night while yours is set to day time isn't a breach of that concept, which should give you a sense of it. Plus, a third-party's experimental viewer can have stuff the Lab hasn't put into project or RC. The experimental version gives everyone a reference point for development. On a practical basis, the Lab suggests Third-parties wait until things hit RC stage before investing significant amounts of time in a feature the Lab is developing. The Lab has been known to drastically change their mind on how some things will be done. Which forces people to do a lot of revisions if they haven't waited. The Lab does get code out to open source dev pre-project... sometimes. Some third-party viewer dev's run way ahead on some features. Black Dragon for instance and its poser. Emerald-Phoenix-Firestorm on occasion runs ahead, bit not so much any more. An example is FS Windlight. That has been around a couple of years or more and EEP is just adding some of those features to the Linden system. I haven't looked at the FS beta currently in testing. My understanding is the version has animesh. The team has said they want to release a new version with animesh when the Lab 'officially' releases animesh. So, however it works, they will be releasing animesh about the same time as the Lab.

    Having every single port open is a significant security risk. Not the best idea. Opening all of them for testing is a basic troubleshooting step. Leaving them open is not good. Having 2.6 & 5MHz connection channels should not be a problem. But, not all laptop network cards can connection to 5MHz. You said you connected, so yours can. But, 5NHz is sensitive to interference. Much more so than 2.6. Also, it does not penetrate walls as well as 2.6. Fluorescent and non-led lights disrupt the signal too. So, try connecting via 2.6 to see if that works better.

    Part of the problem you face is SL Jargon... we misuse words. The dictionary meaning and what they mean in SL are different. With English being a second language it can get really confusing. So... the long explanation is here, Second Life: Mesh vs Classic Bodies. If you want lots of background information on avatars, I have written a load of stuff about them and the changes Linden Lab has made over the years. Use this link, AVATARS. None of this avatar stuff is hard to understand. But, it could drive you crazy trying to figure it out from what people say.

    What mesh bodies do you use?

    Mesh Body Addicts did a survey of a couple of hundred residents. The results are on the website.

    gimp textures not showing up in world,

    I am thinking like Wulfie, why all the polygons? Are you trying to upload mesh and textures in one pass or separate passes? I recommend separate. Have you tried applying other textures? Like the various default textures in the viewer... what happens?
