  1. Well, this is unusual. This thread jumped from October of 2011 to today and nobody batted an eye; it just kept on trucking as if nothing had happened. Where's Drake with his Necromancer tarot card?
  2. There is so much wrong with that sentence that I don't even know where to start.
  3. Again with this? Sheesh. At least this one's close to freezing over.
  4. It is still an issue but from my perspective less of one than it was back when this thread originated. Even then the trends away from max height avatars was under way, though. It's (in my view) considerably more common now to see avatars approaching RL height norms. See Cindy's post farther up this page and Scylla's thread from a yesterday: Why did the software decide to add a snippet of my picture from a post well down in that thread to my saved URL of the OP?
  5. ((Fiddle dee dee, this post was overtaken by events! Move along, please.))
  6. It's both, if I understand you correctly. My prim height measuring widget says 1.85, the very same number returned by the Shape Editor. I'd thought those used to vary, but maybe that got fixed while I was wandering. I have only done a rough check. I can walk through a 1.9 meter prim without the top of my head (quite) showing, so I'm fairly confident the numbers are correct. The friend I mentioned is Naz Fride; she is my height or a tiny bit less now, but she was much taller before. This fuzzy pic is almost seven years old and you can see how much taller she was (and I was taller then than I am now). The liberties she appears to be taking with me are purely a result of the height difference, by the way.
  7. I don't get in here (this category) often but as it happens this is a subject I've spent a little time with. I'm 1.85 meters, or just a touch over 6 feet. I am certainly not tall, but I do find that I'm actually taller than a few women I see and not much shorter than most. A good friend who used to tower over me is now possibly a smidgen shorter than I am. I think it might be a trend and aside from the issues with buildings, furniture, vehicles, etc. (bless the 'ADJUST' feature) a welcome one.
  8. When is an alt not an alt? I read this title and took 'alt' to mean, well, alt. You know, those other personalities some of us have. I took 'key' to mean UUID. I saw 'unbinding' and thought, "Wow, what deep level programming concept is this person speaking of so casually as if we all knew what it meant?" Imagine my disappointment upon reading the second sentence (didn't know what PTT stood for, so the first only whetted my interest) and figuring out you meant the Alt key. I guess this might be one instance where case matters :-).
  9. You might have missed the "The Home and Garden thread" because it's near the bottom of the page here in the General Discussion Forum, but that's where you should go for ideas. There are 22 pages of posts dealing with nothing but land and building ideas. A lot of them will be for parcels much bigger than your 1024 (even those will have good ideas), but a great many are for plots half the size of yours or smaller. Here's one about building and decorating a house on a lot of less than 400 m².
  10. Another option is to create your own superhero: this IS Second Life, after all. Quinn Morani once shared a story with me regarding something her daughter had said at the age of 7 or 8: she had decided everybody possessed a superpower of some kind and when queried decided Mommy's was 'reading'. Quinn even wondered aloud what her hero name would be. I realized that could work in SL, so I asked @Argus Collingwood to make a costume (for which I probably paid about a tenth what it was worth) based on one of those names, 'The Battling Bookworm'. Quinn's birthday was not long before Halloween so it gave her a good excuse to wear it. She decided she needed a useful superhero accessory—the sidekick—so I had to come up with a role and outfit for myself. Doing all that is still one of my very favorite things ever from SL. The Battling Bookworm and her trusty sidekick, Stacks: ps: Maddy took this picture; she probably has a larger print. I must have resized mine somewhere along the line.
  11. ((complimentary fans available at counter))
  12. She definitely isn't running the current version; in her OP she states it is 5.0.11. The current version is 5.1.7 (.55786). I would imagine Firestorm Support is not going to do much with something that far down-rev; they'll probably recommend what many here have: clean install of latest version. That way if she does still have issues at least they'll be working with current code.
