  1. Agreed. Looks like a good basic system. That video card is still pretty useful and powerful in this day and age. The X200 series are great too, but only if you have the money. Just add another gig of Ram and ur all good.
  2. Normal viewer users can tell emerald users by the touch particles they emit. Emerald is a good 3rd party viewer. I just do not use it due to the lack of some features I need. Nothing besides that is wrong with it. Frankly, whether I use it or not I just wanna pat the peeps on the back who made it. Good Job
  3. if u are on a private sim just get estate manager to restart it and poof ur ghost is gone. this is a rare bug and i have solved it for 2 people on my estate before that way i see you tired that and u might be at the sim u tped to before that one or after. usually the restart works like a charm.
  4. when you are in sl, only LL and yourself are privy to your WAN IP. Tho i think there are huds and security stuff that can get your IP address, however usually most who has these are worried about greifer alts and those that cheat at clubs on contests.
  5. oh i know. I was just making a point that online you are your IP address. Same way in RL you are your real name. There are ways of masking your WAN same as there is a way of giving yourself a nickname in RL. All in all tho, IP Privacy is a hard sell since this info is always useful in peer/client to server resources, like banning a bad user or greifer, or in case of game servers: reporting and banning cheaters. I know this really does not apply here but the principles sl and streaming music servers are based on this backbone. Actually i had someone's alt full out lie to me that he was not someone else, and try to log on his other self at same time to fool me even more. I already knew he was fibbin and I hate dishonest alters, so i called him out on it. Tho his mannerisms in typing and such were identical, what really called him out on it was the fact that Shoutcast DNAS prompt tells me unigue connections as well as those connected. and two WANs were identical. This is not really a huge issue for banning, but just an example why these things log ip addresses that the admin can use to help protect themselves running servers that people connect to for any reason.
  6. Any thing you do on the internet discloses your WAN IP Address. This of course being the address that goes out from ur modem to the real world and given to you by ur ISP. As a DJ and an owner of his own server ( i do not rent servers when i have business internet and can handle up to 600 listeners without even noticing drag) i rarely pay attention to the Shoutcast DNAS log except the number of people connected to the stream. Yes IP addresses show up but that is how any server DOS dialog, prompt, or whatever streaming text shows when someone connects to something. Technically you are safe, and I can prove it. Just cause I can see IP addresses...none of them show who's belongs to who's. the list is sparse and so not well put together. Modems from Cable and DSL companies comes with firewall properties and they are not Switches or routers so getting in is not even close to doing, even for the best hackers, which is why they use spy/ad/and malware to gain entry, which usually some dumbass aquires by clicking on things and using ineternet explore (awful web browser). If you are on DSL...Guess what, ur WAN IP address changes every time you disconnect from your ISP's network. If you are using Cable/Fiber or Business Internet, then you have a static IP address and usually your port 80 (internet out) is off. The only thing you are doing is depriving yourself of music and fine speech in SL and you are not really saving your computer from nothing by not listening to Live music or DJs.
