  1. All the answers given are right and as some extra information: A Linden home (of 512sqm) is free to own (there is no tier on top of premium monthly) and it costs nothing to buy. You can own 512sqm of land (again with no tier on top of premium monthly) but you will need to buy this somewhere on mainland and, depending on the area, this could cost anything from around a few hundred Lindens to a few thousand. A 512sqm mainland parcel of land allows you 117 prims total and that must include the house you build on it. A Linden home has 117 prims remaining for you to furnish. The Linden house d
  2. I should like to complain about the dropping standards of complaining, that's my main complaint. Years ago, when I worked in a customer services role for a major UK telecoms provider, we received good complaint letters. Some of them were so good, they were photocopied and pinned on the staff restaurant noticeboard. Nowadays, people don't take the time to complain in writing, standards have fallen drastically and lazily, customers will now merely ring a call centre and become annoyed at whoever is unfortunate enough to take their call. Alternatively, web-based complaint/contact forms are fi
  3. Thanks, Knowl, but it's not really something I want to do. I come into SL for fun after work, not to do some more I really just want to know why the new system (the SL Cashier) is available to new residents (outside US) joining today, but yet still, it is not available to longer-term residents who are also outside the US?
  4. Thanks, PeeWee, but I've tried that several times with no success. If I delete my payment information, then I'm returned to the old choice of payment methods - the expensive credit card or PayPal. The system will ignore any attempt to use PayPal. Does anyone know when the lab intend to carry out what they stated, "Initially, the new payment system will be available only to new Residents outside the US, and to those who do not have existing payment information on file. Soon, the system will available to existing Residents outside the US who already have payment information on file." ?
  5. In December of last year, LL changed how newly joining non-US residents bought Lindens. They replaced the blue/white credit card screen and the take me to set up PayPal screen with the SecondLife Cashier. http://wiki.secondlife.com/w/index.php?title=Linden_Lab_Official:Local_Payments_FAQ&diff=prev&oldid=1065892 The lab stated that existing (Non-US) residents would continue to use the old system, but PayPal became unusable and it is not possible to choose it as a payment method anymore. This leaves long term, non-US residents with a choice of using one expensive credit card or another
  6. Yes, your bum does look fat in that. I think that's one thing a guy should never say, can think of many others and I know there are, as yet, millions of undiscovered wrong things I will say in the future. It was once said that only two things in life are guaranteed, death and taxes, and yet I have never agreed. I believe there to be three: death, taxes and saying something seemingly innocuous which leads to several days of digging yourself out of a hole.
  7. My signature is how Winston Churchill signed-off all his letters. You'll need to look it up to find the meaning of the acronym. I use it because, as did he, I understand, bad or worse, good or better, we all do have to KBO.

I just did a search and here is a link to the free PDF download: AFK novel And here is a review: Review of AFK I've read that and it's a good read.
  9. Welcome to Second Life. It is great to hear you intend to spend time as an alt and I hope you have fun finding out what the world has to offer. There are so many beautiful places to visit, so much live music to go hear and so many interesting people to meet. Good luck! You'll love it.
