  1. Depends on whether it is in an Adult content rated sim or not, I think.
  2. It's hard to make an avatar that looks that much like yourself. Didn't there used to be a service where you could submit a RL photo though, and have an artist try to do it?
  3. And so you wouldn't be asking yourself if you are cheating, then, would you.
  4. I just assumed I could build an Amazon virtual world, and then with one-click ordering, have it rezzed IRL (probably through 3D printing) and it would be delivered outside my house by a drone. Free 3-D World Delivery if you have Prime Life.
  5. Rule of thumb, both RL and SL: Any question of this kind that you ask yourself with the words, "Is it cheating....", the answer is always "Yes."
  6. Say that Linden Lab has users from about 1,000 areas of the world. Of those, there are about 10 places that are known to be dangerous (to themselves, their neighbors, and SL). Most of the griefing comes from those 10 places. There are even lost of people who are trying to escape those places, it's so bad there. Now, out of those 10 places, Linden Lab's previous administration identified 6 of them as being the worst. (The other 4 might even be worse in some ways, such as being the source of a major attack, but they have certain political and economic ties.) So the incoming CEO of LL implements

That's how the Internet works: two computers know each other by IP address in order to communicate. However, your IP address can be used to identify you in real life. Anyone who knows it can trivially figure out your real life location, with varying accuracy. In some places, just the general area that you live in. In other cases, your block or maybe even street. That depends on how your provider (ISP, e.g
  8. Calling Cards are not like other assetts; they are stored on your hard drive rather than a server. That may have something to do with it.
  9. Thank You! I will fire up Emacs and look for this file and see what it's doing. More interesting things. Sometimes (transferring the object, Save As from Appearance, and other random actions, sometimes...) the object appears with the body shape icon. I guess the system gets confused while I am manipulating the object, and pants turn into a shape...
  10. I have some old wearables that show with a question mark icon in inventory. When I put them on, they don't appear (although the avatar may deform slightly), and going into Appearance mode shows them. What are these? They might be slider-clothes made in SL, or purchased. There is no Mesh anywhere in this story. I am guessing these are damaged assets or something?
  11. KarenMichelle Lane wrote: The Risks: OMG, someone can identify what ISP you use. Yup, that is pretty much it. Actually, you can often geolocate an IP address to within a few hundred feet. (Depends on various factors. You can almost always identify the city; sometimes the house address.)
  12. There is a region called "Cookie" that hosts literary events, especially for writers of prose and poetry. One way to find out about things like this is joining groups like "INKsters" and "Virtual Writers, Inc".
  13. She forgot to make the neighbor's side transparent... "Woman builds 60 foot screen to block view neighbor home"
  14. Are there any design documents that explain the Viewer? The overall architecture of the Viewer, the messaging system, circuit use, what goes over UDP, the role of HTTP, what kinds of things are polled, what the state machines are for. what all the threads are doing, why some things are plugins...an overview of all the pieces and key data structures?
