  1. Has anyone else noticed a problem with the new search when refining your search by Permissions? I've just serched for teen female - Avatar Components - Avatar Shapes - Copy & Modify boxes ticked and clicked Refine Search button. Bought 3 luckily very cheap shapes without checking the actual permissions in the descriptions and found 2 were No Modify. They clearly have Modify & Transfer crossed through on the right of the description page and they're not new shapes. Is the new search not refining by permissions?
  2. Problems yesterday with some viewers being unable to connect to SecondLife & getting the message "DNS could not resolve the the Host name" appear to have affected the UK and been caused by British Telecom's DNS server failing. This has now been fixed! Perhaps we need to keep the current Firestorm viewer around as a back up in case this kind of failiure happens again. The last time this happened was only this June and it lasted for a couple of days if I remember. I didn't try Firestorm at that time not did I try another trick which is to change to using Google's DNS servers.
  3. Benn, try downloading the latest Firestorm viewer as Firestorm seems unaffected.
  4. Having a very odd problem. Logged in on the latest Firestorm viewer sorting Inventory and things started going slow, alpha layers and foot shapes taking ages to have any effect on my avatar. So tried relogging on the very latest Kokua viewer that I've just downloaded and clean installed - 3.7.21 - Logged in fine the first time, changed Prefs, and relogged. Message came up on Login screen after a while saying "DNS could not resolve the the Host name". Did as message suggested, checked SL.com and logged into my Dashboard with no problem. So tried SL Main viewer 3.7.20 (296094) and got the same message. Then tried Firestorm and logged in with no problems except texture loading when I tp is slow as though there are CDN problems again. Anyone else having similar problems?
  5. Be interesting to hear if people are again having problems with textures stalling this evening (currently 3.26pm slt).
  6. Ayesha I'm have texture stall problems this evening and inability to take off worn items. This lasts for up to five minutes at a time and then everything returns to normal. Earlier this evening (UK time) I was trying on skins. Suddenly the skins stopped changing. Ctrl+Alt+R stopped working, too. I was wearing one skin according to Inventory but what I saw on my av was the previous skin. I tried clicking several different skins and tried Ctrl+Alt+R several times then sat and waited. A few minutes later it was like watching a slide show as my av quickly went through wearing all the different skins I'd tried to wear. I did not go from the original skin to the last one I had tried, I saw all of the skins quickly rez and be replaced on my av. It seems as though we have a normal period of rezzing, then everything stalls, pauses, and returns to normal. I'm back on Firestorm at the moment because good though I found Catznip it is slow rezzing textures. (Edit) Returned to Catznip. Texture stalling is bad even on the Main Linden viewer. One new pair of pants with 2 alpha layers in the folder. Neither alpha layer would rez, one of the 2 alpha layers refused to be taken off, and at one point I had both alpha layers showing as worn with neither rezzing. Finally logged in on Catznip and all was resolved. Will see if textures continue stalling on Catznip tomorrow.
  7. Oh that is interesting Sara. I'll download and install Catznip and give it a try. Thank you. (Edit) Catznip does indeed seem better. As with all my viewers, Catznip has it's own Cache folder. Logged in and the whole mesh house was there instantaneously. Then I visited a store where yesterday most of a mesh couch had been missing. Only one arm rest showed but the mesh cat sitting on it. Yesterday that couch wouldn't rez for me or my alt no matter how many times we revisited. Finally I visited it with a friend, she sat on the couch and it appeared. With Catznip the couch was visible the moment I walked into the store. Catznip does seem a little slower at loading but that maybe because it's a new instal. I'll happily put up with slightly slower rezzing speeds so long as I can see everything I should be able to see. This isn't conclusive though because the dress problem mentioned earlier, once cured by relog while on UKanDo, wouldn't reproduce on other viewers. So, does Project Interesting save changes whatever in a central folder used by all installed viewers bewcause this doesn't seem to be a Cache problem as all my viewers have their own Cache folders.
  8. It is possible that this is something similar to the problems I've posted about (http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Server/bd-p/SecondLifeServer). While I'm not having the really bad problems reported in this thread I have seen one thing that seems to show things are getting worse. Since the last Grid Roll to the Main Server, the one that enabled CDN Grid wide, the small mesh house that I call home has rezzed instantaneously every time I log in and every time I tp home. Before the Grid Roll I would have to wait and click around to fill in lots of emplty spaces in order to make the house fully visible EVERY time I logged in or tp'd home. Yesterday evening and agin this morning I'm back to the old problem when I log in and tp home. Large bits of the mesh house are missing and there's no floor. I haven't clicked anything this morning just left myself standing still while checking the forum and typing this, and nothing is changing, nothing is rezzing. Been over 10 minutes now with no change. This is very depressing. I, too, am from the UK, wired connection, no wi-fi, and line speeds in excess of 60mbps. Ping sim is around 150 which is normal for me and 0 packet loss. I've got bandwidth set to 1500 on all viewers now, which is apparently the recommended Firestorm setting.
  9. Now the whole issue of missing prims/mesh pieces has become even stranger. I've just tried on a new mesh dress, it came in 5 sizes and 4 different colour variations, and it has a corset like top & a skirt. I tried on the small size first which was a little big, then I tried on the XS size. Only the black corset top rezzed which I thought might be a fault with the dress. So I tried on the other 3 XS size colour variations and found they were all missing the skirt. So I checked the other sizes, everyone was complete. I clicked the empty space where the XS size skirts should be but there was nothing there. I tried Alt-Ctrl-R but no change. So I thought okay a fault with the XS size dresses BUT I decided to relog while wearing one of the XS size dresses. I logged back in and everything was there, top AND skirt. This was UKanDo viewer which is suppossed to be very upto date. Now if this is a Project Interesting glitch why did it only affect the XS size dresses? Why have I have never encountered anything like this myself before last weeks Grid Roll when CDN went Grid wide? Could it now be a combination of Project Interesting and CDN glitches? I have no idea but it is now beginning to make me despair of SL. The worst thing about this problem for me is that I really have no idea what is missing from any location because since CDN rolled out last week everything now rezzes so very quickly. I'm no longer waiting around for several minutes having tp'd into a sim waiting for objects and textures to fully rez so I'm not looking for missing objects. At least with the dresses it was very obvious the skirt part was missing! Feeling really fed up at the moment. (Edit) I didn't change my Group while trying on the dresses. (Edit) I'm in the UK on BT Infinity (fibre to the box) with line speed around 65 to 70 and I'm hard wired, no wi-fi.
  10. Nova, I'm a Firestorm user but I did use the LL viewer last week while I was having the problems and again this week but not very much. Last week the LL viewer suffered the same as the Firestorm viewer, failed logins, failed tp's etc. but I admit I haven't tried the LL viewer today. I know Firestorm, being an older viewer, is missing updates that the LL viewer has and I wonder if those might be making Firestorm more susceptible to the problem of missing objects that I'm having today. I must try using it more over the next few days. But how do I tell if the LL viewer is handling things better when the problem is so random. (Edit) Maybe the LL viewer is better. Having posted the above reply I've just logged back into SL and visited the same store again. My LL viewer and Firestorm each have a separate Cache folder so the store was not already in my LL Cache. The store rezzed complete almost instantly I arrived on the LL viewer. Just a pity the LL Viewer doesn't have the copy/paste build tools and possibly Area Search. (Edit) Final thought. Using the LL Viewer seems to be a possible solution to my problem but it doesn't have many of the extras that the TPV's have. Firestorm appears more susceptible but has the extras. So, I'm going to stick to the LL Viewer and to 2 of the TPV's I have installed that are up to date and have the extras, too, Alchemy & UKanDo.

  12. Yes I know about the missing prims issue, I've encountered it quite a lot up until this weeks Grid Roll. The mesh house my partner I have on our land often used to only partially rez both when logging in and when tp'ing home. The quickest way to get it to rez was to right click around until the missing mesh pieces rezzed. Since this weeks Grid Roll everything, and I mean everything, rezzes almost instantly. The problem at both stores was that the missing mesh objects just were not there. I tried right clicking everywhere but there was absolutely no trace of them, yet a few objects and the store itself were rezzed perfectly. I waited over ten minutes and nothing changed. It took a relog before the objects were visible. When I tp'd back to store again everything was visible. It was as though certain objects either weren't being cached or not being uploaded to my viewer until I'd relogged. I had a similar issue with an alpha layer yesterday. It showed as being worn in Inventory yet my feet were visible and nothing I did would make the alpha layer work until I'd relogged. Again I waited over ten minutes, tried all sorts of tricks but it was as though the texture wasn't there. (Edit) And teleports are becoming problematic today. Yesterday was super, today 3 failed teleports so far resulting in relogs each time.
  13. Well this past two weeks has made me begin to question staying in SL simply because of frustration. I had problems last week after the Grid Roll (see http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Server/Deploys-for-the-week-of-2014-10-27/td-p/2852640/page/2) and now this week rezzing has become very odd. Logins fast and smooth, most tp's very good, most rezzing is very fast but now things are becoming odd. I arrived at one store to pick up a group gift and found just an empty table. Tried clicking above the table but nothing appeared. 3 minutes later and the group gift boxes suddenly appeared. Walked into the store opposite to check their group gifts and the store appears almost empty. There are a few wall vendors visible, a few boxes hanging in mid air which I'm sure should have tables under them, but none of the clothing racks are vbisible. I know they were there before this weeks grid roll, I know they're there now because when I try to walk where they should be I get stopped. The rest of the store is fully rezzed, everything crisp and sharp. I've tried the old trick of clicking the empty spaces where I think they were but that doesn't work any longer. Ten minutes+ and still nothing. I'm beginning to doubt my memory of the store now! If this is CDN then it's killing SL for me. (Edit) Okay, I now do believe this might be a CDN problem. I have just logged out and logged back into last location and everything instantly (and I do mean instantly) rezzed. All the mesh clothing racks are visible. This is going to be very annoying.
