  1. my best friend in SL recently lost a ton of stuff. She was gone from SL for i assume about a year. I, on the other hand, was gone for about 4 years and didn't really lose anything that i noticed. Suppsedly there is some new feature that has photos in INV so you can see what your junk is, but i do not know how that works. I guess that new "upgrade" caused problems.
  2. Yeah, i think this happens to a lot of us on a regular basis. The way to handle it is to buy one of those old people toilets and have it in the same room. OR play sl on a laptop so you can carry it to the bathroom and take a dump while hosting a party, just make sure your mic is not on. For real though - yes, some people put second life before relationships, friends, their jobs, etc... but some things will NOT take a back seat to SL - bodily functions happen to be one of those.
  3. I am just learning how to do it (using blender)and recently built a stair case railing. Seems like a sweet deal, one prim instead of 8 (at least in my case) It is just one texture, material, and color so no problem there... Aside a couple minor buillding errors like rotation angles and alignments (both my fault), iit seems to work fine. So anyways, what is the trade-off with using mesh that may not be evident to beginners? It is kind of like when you think you are getting a good deal on a used car or old house but then a week later something goes wrong that you could not have foreseen. having a nice object of oone primm instead of several just seems too good to be true.
  4. Solid friendships never come easy. They develop over time it may be better if you can join some communities, popular places, etc for child avatars. Of course be careful to avoid the shady ones.
  5. I am back after being gone for four years. I quit cause my computer couldn't handle whatever crap they were throwing in the grid. It doesn't seem much different - mostly vacant areas, some of the older places still there but new faces, the griefers still acting the ass, not much has changed. I think the reason SL isn't very popular is because the media seldom talks about it, no, it is the countless social medias that get crammed down peoples' throats. If virtual worlds were big, if commercials said things like, "build your own custom (whatever) on Second Life" then more people would be in. I am glad virtual worlds are not real big. It is one of the last sacred things on the web where you don't have to worry about reality. It is 3D version of what the web was like 15 or so years ago when we were warned NOT to share too much RL info. Even if it seems slow, I say enjoy it.
  6. Man, I haven't been inworld in a few years. A friend of mine tried sL for about 20 minutes but of COURSE the first thing that happened was some creepazoid following her around trying to "do teh sects". Anyway so here are a couple what-if's... For the residents who are at the height of their SL addiction (16 or more hours a day in some cases), what if they lost their web connection or the power was off for a few hours? How would they survive? What if max prim allowance didn't exist on any rented land in SL? Like it just wasn't a factor? Would some residents have completely cluttered SL homes like their RL homes probably are? What if there was some sort of block on new residents (maybe 30 days?) from doing adult activity? Would the "do teh sects" creepazoid population still loiter the noob spots in search of some new person all the time? A big one - suppose SL followed the same rule as that "social media" site that is getting tired. Like say your avatar had to look as bad as the RL operator sometimes does with weight problems and all and have the same name. Would SL'ers then try to use SL to pretend their RL is better than what it really is? I know people on social media never do that HAHAHA sorry I cannot say that with a straight face... "Oh yes this 50 room mansion is modeled after my real home!"
  7. I believe stuff like this happens. If soiling your pants because you could not pull yourself away from SL is the worst thing to ever happen web-wise, I say you are in good shape. So you ruined your pants. What about people whose entire lives are ruined because of something they did on social media?
  8. It is like this - If you have a bunch of crap in the trash can and dont know what is in there, you would never find it if searching anyways. You would probably not remember owning half the stuff. 80K items, good luck finding ANYthing. Plus, if you did trash some valuable treasure like a worthless texture, outfit, etc... it would probably be easier to just re-buy or re-make the thing than trying to remember what it is called to do a search. wow, 80,000 items. And I thought I had reached haorder status when my INV got a little over 1,000 How is it even possible to accumilate 80,000 items? I don;t think I could do that even if I added up all the PRIMS in various objects.
  9. Just what the world needs, ANOTHER incarnation of C.O.D. The world needs that like it needs another reality show featuring trashy people.
  10. I asked my avatar. I said, "MoiselleErin, would you do it?" She gave an honest response, she said - "Not if it means getting off my fat ass!"
  11. SL didn't used to be so slow. Then they started adding updates and tons of silly useless features and finally it slowed down. I imagine SL is probably a lot of fun still if one has all these requirements but who wants to update their machine just to get into any particular game?Yeah there are older viewers but to see the latest and greatest stuff you need really modern stuff or you have to do a bunch of fine tuning in preferences. It becomes more of a nightmare than anything.
  12. Anything can happen. I have a friend on an different forum (not sl related) who met their S.O. in SL. It was a long story. Relationahips, no matter where they start, can go any direction. I think it is funny how people say "I would never date someone I met in a club, live close to, tavern, dating site, facebook SL, work, a client..." OK then, where do you expect to meet someone? When they use the defense of "Cause if it goes bad..." That alone shows just how optimistic they are about their ability to develop and maintain a relationship. Personally, I have heard of more relationships STARTING because of SL than I have about them ENDING cause of SL. But then I suppose most people would not go around bragging that they lost their partner because of someone on the web.
  13. Rich experience - If SL seems to be running reasonably smooth, you will be fine. Maybe it won't ever run as smooth as a video game for playstation whatever but anyways... Honestly though, the things you REALLY need to have a "rich" experience in SL are these - Discipline to not let SL get in the way of real life. Oh yes, that CAN happen. "A few more minutes" can turn into ALL night (again) Better call into work, too tired to go. Understanding that SL is not real life. That fat hairy nerdy guy you saw waddling down the street in real life could be an ultra-hot woman in SL. He will not tell you this though. Not in RL not in SL. Understand that some people in SL are delusional to the point that they regard themselves as highly as some regard that person's avatar. Some wretched hag in real life might be a snooty supermodel in SL who will play games with your feelings. Do not let SL mess with your real world feelings. I made that mistake at the beginning. I used to date someone in SL and was IN LOVE! After learning more about this person's real life (thru them telling me and thru some online court documents about this person's history AND photos they sent) I would be horrified to meet in real life. There is a dark side to SL that has nothing to do with graphics or FPS. What you need to ask yourself is this - Will SL be worth it if I become all-encompassed and obsessed with it? Just keep a level head. The addiction can creep up quick. I thought it was stupid at first but the first time I called into work to play SL, I knew I was hooked. I HAD to work on my avatar, I HAD to see what was going on with my favorite sim... I soon lost that job BTW.
  14. I know the feeling. For the first time in my LIFE I live completely alone. In the past I have had room mates, a spouse, family, or whoever but now it is just me and the fleabag. That and painful nostalgic memories of the good ol days.
  15. LL keeps adding more and more weird stuff to SL. They keep "upgrading" viewers, adding stuff like mesh, pathfinding, sunshine rezzing (or whatever) and God knows what else. It is kind of sad that one cannot go into SL and just enjoy it without being a computer diagnostician to figure out the problems then having to avoid a bunch of stuff, reducing graphic levels etc. Thing is, it is just gonna keep getting worse. When people who own gaming computers are having a lot of problems, there is a serious issue. I have not been in SL for more than a few minutes since about a year ago. When I log on and textures keep turning black and dialog boxes are blank, I pretty much gave up. That and my SL best friend gave up too.
