  1. It's really simple. 1. Have a lot of friends. 2. Make new friends with the vistors Do whatever you can to make then stay. Lets just say that's it's quite easy to make people stay if you know what to do. Just be active. That's pretty much how places like the commune got started. Everytime I came there, there was always somebody ther eto greet me. If you do not have a lot of time in SL, then it's not really worth it. Maintaining a popular place is a hard thing to do.
  2. Unofically, maybe. Windows is primarily Direct X, yet people got this crappy unoptimized program working for windows. Offically? Nope. Software is expected to *WORK* on consoles, and a program as glitchy and as crappy as SL would never be accepted by Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo. LL barely have any programming skills to program well on the PC without crashing or problems ingame.

TKR No offense, but mfor once can you actually post something that has something to do with the topic? I know it's hard for you to find work after they got rid whole helper thing, but I'm pretty sure this person knows how to meet people.
  4. Didn't you say in anothe topic that "My firestorm never crashes" I guess it does now.
  5. None are better than SL; that depends on your hardware or viewer. But overall? I like both my Linux setup and my Mac OS setup, so I like both I guess. I can't really stand WIndows though. Besides video games (which doesn't matter to me since I'm not a PC gamer), you can pretty much find any software you need on Linux or Mac. But my opinion is bias since I'm a software developer and graphic artist. If you're casual, just get a cheap PC with windows 7. But if you want to be a dumb hipster like me, then get a Mac.

It just becomes a place where a handful of us with "secret knowledge" can come and play. KEVP I'll never understand this why people think this way. Just look at the wiki. That's everbody does these days when they need help on any software.

One is that there aren't any groups or profiles naturally integrated in the real world, so there isn't even the option to poke a person and see what he/she likes. Your example would mean, that you leave your profile completely blank, because hey, in RL I can't right-click you.... Well, nothing wrong with someone leaving their profile blank if they don't want people learning anything about them. My profile is completely blank for that very reason.
  8. It's certainly ain't father's day for me. Another week in my country.
  9. The last thing i want to do is scare somebody after they seen my groups. I visit a lot of sims: Grated, M rated, RPing, hangout spots. Since everybody look at profiles first I'm just doing it for their own safety.

Their mother has just died leaving them the house (4 bedrooms) and land as her only real property. It was important to her that they share "everything". The brothers have very different personalities and can choose from the following roles: The Casanova/Playboy - Always wooing and bedding females without descrimination The Criminal - Drug dealer, pimp or rapist, with little respect for females The Nerd - The quiet guy, with sexual deviant behavior (BDSM) The Businessman - Boss type who is busy often with business, like to show off his women If interested in details visit http://michiganbros.wordpress.com/ i find the bolded statement very offensive. Why is it deviant behavior? Do you even know what BD/Sm is? Also.. why are you stereotyping these "roles" about how they would treat women? What, exactly, is the point of this RP? What is the final goal? Why not just ask for people who can fill these roles without them being roles? Do you have any idea how hard it would be to RP as a rapist? Where are these women coming from? Will they be informed of the RP? or will the four of you sit around comparing d**ks? Why the heck do you have to over analyze everything on the forums or turn everything into some liberal agenda? Seriously, it's a role play scenario, so not everything needs to make sense. Seriously, you need to calm down.
  11. I agree that bad lines suck on the mainlands. Makes me wonder why they don't get a private estate instead. However, I rather deal with them than the teleport you to home at 10 seconds secruity orbs.

I just finished my degree in computer science and I took some IT courses during college not too long ago, and i personally say buying a laptop for SL is fine if you know how to take care of your laptop so it doesn't overheat. While I perfer my desktop, I've been running SL on laptop for years without much trouble since I was always on the move during school. Of course due to SL horrible optimization you can't run at the highest settings on many laptops, but lets be honest; SL isn't exactly that pretty graphically anyway. Running at the higest settings is like trying to put makeup on a baboon.

Here and Now impatient kids are crying for SL to be able to run on their tablets and not-so-smart phones. In the Here and Now I haven't heard of too many (if any) success stories about bringing these two very contradictionary demands technologically together. That's only because SL is horribly unoptimized due to LL crappy coding. You think something that looks like second life (which you have to admit, doesn't look that great by todays graphical standards) wouldn't need at least a Radeon HD 7950 to run smoothy on ultra settings. Tablets and smartphones are already running decent looking games, and they're getting stronger every year. I obvoiusly don't expect to see SL on any mobile devices anytime soon when we even have SL running like crap on decent rigs. But for everything else out there, I expect PCs will get less popular overtime. I know even popular gaming companies like Square Enix starting to say that tablets are the future.
