These phenomena, which usually include nausea and some dizziness are mainly caused by a conflict between the visual system (telling you are moving) and the vestibular system (which is convinced that you are not moving). Increasing the instantaneous field-of-view, resolution, sharpness of image, update rate – all these engineering improvements have no effect on the SIS. SIS is more preva

Your mention of paranoia is just the usual baiting attempt so I'll cut the line and dispose of that now. As it happens, you actually did form half of a valid point with the idea at the start of the sentence. I've heard the monster door story many times, first directly and then from overhearing it being told to others or seeing it in places like this. It's one of my favorite Maddy stories (not my very
  3. Well, fooey. I'm too late for 'holidays' but at least I'm ahead of New Year's Day for everyone GMT +2 or later. Happy New Year!
  4. From my view, it still looks pretty much like that. Still fully compartmentalized. And I work with almost exclusively brick and mortar businesses. The relationships between the compartments is both difficult to understand and, it seems to me anyway, totally open to interpretation, but the bottom of that food chain is the merchant's customer. The merchant (LL, in this case) is only one rung off the bottom with all the capabilities and power that implies. From there it moves to the software, hardware, and possibly middleware LL uses to get credit card transactions (henceforth EFT) to the credit

I don't know if you're aware of this but the majority of computer modification/configuration tasks are performed by people sitting in chairs with the computer on a workbench. It is not at all uncommon for the workbench to be at desk-height (even in professional computer repair centers) and the chairs to have arms. "personal opinions"? Oh, you mean something like this?: "IF you had a 3rd or 4th generation i7 ( LGA 1155 or LGA 1150) then yeah I say

Or a blissful dancer in SL? ;-). Aye, that too. That's the thing about experiences. Once you've had them, they're part of you. They are an element in your narrative. In that particular instance, a very positive and treasured element of mine. Hiya :-) .

He said that when we play covers, we play a lot of stuff from our youth and from the ages before also, mixed in with more modern stuff when a 30s-40s-50s+ is dancing (a little bit intoxicated sometimes) to a song from their youth then they arent dancing as a 30-40s-50s+. They are dancing as a teenager. They are transported back in time. In their minds and memories. They are young again, for those moments. We see this every weekend, in 1000s of faces, on 1000s of nights for over the 10 years now that we have been playing the

Of course they come after me then and charge me a hefty overdraw fee LOL, so I'm sure the money is in the account. ditto on that.

  15. Did you not look at this earlier post: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/General-Discussion-Forum/Why-is-SL-so-empty/m-p/2967187/highlight/true#M215252 ? Maximum daily concurrence in Jan 2013 looks to have been about 65.000. By December of that year, after fluctuating to as low as about 55,000, it was right around 60,000. These days it's about 50,000. Yes, it is declining and unless LL does something useful, such as working on helping new users (or by taking advantage of the massive number of current residents to accomplish the same thing) it will probably continue to decline. But all thi
  16. Root Beer is a very good thing. One of the best tasting root beers we beleive is still being made. It's called Sudz. Hint: There are a few products that come close to what you will have in Heaven. This is one of them.

  22. Now that I've stopped laughing, I do actually have a suggestion for merchants (although I suspect I'm preaching to the choir with the group of same in this thread). I purchased a gift on MP. My friend never received the item. After we waited a few days I contacted the merchant (can't remember by which method but it was the one requested) and explained what happened, including transaction numbers, item number/description, and recipient's name. I included a comment that the recipient was well acquainted with SL and had checked all the likely places. Next day or so, my friend logged in and IM'd
