    had a funny one today.. it didn't annoy me.  It made me laugh but worth sharing in case anyone else gets a giggle

    Him: hii
    Me: (Cindy Evanier): hi
    Him: i am male 21
    Me: ok
    Him: u
    Me: I am male too
    Him: ohhh
    Him left chat range.
    Him left the region.

    I would have thought the line annoying you most right about now was the one waiting to get in to see "Aquaman".

    To put it simply, NO. 

    Second Life has been the most addictive thing I've ever played

    Plus I'm just curious as well since I see people who've been here for like 10 years and I'm just like 'woah what have you been doing for the past decade?'.

    Based on the bolded sentence you're already past asking.

    You're hooked :-). Doomed, like the rest of us. Somehow we can't let it go. Even if we stay away for years at a time, we keep in touch, we come back. Your problem won't be finding something to do, it will just be finding time to do a few of the things you want to do because there is always something new.

  3. 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?

    Thanks Dillon! Is that 1.85 metres, as measured with a prim? Or as indicated in the viewer?

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 :-).
