    Stolen valor on SL

    There are those who do revere the military, many of whom are lifers. The rest of us, not so much. We have a healthy respect for them but never lose sight of the fact that they are human like the rest of us and are not infallible.

    More like piggybacking on a communication transmission.

    You have to listen really hard to hear the morse code in the static. You'll hear it if you have trained your ears.

    Anyone know what these bots do?

    After reading through the thread, (yes I know, necroed) I'm pretty sure the bots described were land bots looking for parcels to snap up.

    Stolen valor on SL

    You're using a bit too broad of a brush there. Most of the guys I've known over the past 45 years or so, don't ever claim to have been in the military when they haven't been. There was an air force base not 5 miles from the town I grew up in. It wasn't the only AFB in that state either. There were also a few army bases (one well known boot camp about 50 miles from the town I grew up in) as well as a naval and a marine base. So, no, not every guy in America claims to have been in the military and seen war. Just the young ones who erroneously think it will impress others. It always catches up to them sooner or later.

    Yet I'm the one you claim is arrogant. Did you forget about all the fingers you're pointing back at yourself while pointing one at me?

    Yes. Here's me in a sexy pose. No, no shanty. Just a den. Come on in, it's cozy inside.
  12. I don't think so. Les is still around. He just doesn't post often. https://community.secondlife.com/profile/960998-les-white/
  13. Wonder how long it would take to make the trip in a paddle boat. I used to love getting out on the rivers and streams with mine. Oh wow. Les still has them up for sale and on the MP! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Paddle-Boat-21/46407 and for those who like sharing the fun: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Paddle-Boat-Rezzer-and-personal-craft-v12/46411 Les is another of the oldbie creators that I miss. Used to love hanging around his shop and watching him build and testing scripts. Damn. That was a long time ago.

    Looks to me like you are confusing impersonating an officer with wearing clothing bought at army surpluses which carry more than just army "issue". ETA: I'm a civilian and have owned a naval flight jacket legally purchased at a local army surplus store for decades. I've also purchased other things besides clothing. All perfectly legal.

    What Happened to the World?

    I've always wanted to live in a place like that but the neighbors always turn out to be jackasses. ETA: That was meant to be funny. Not saying any of the neighbors living in that area are jackasses.

    I must be stupid then. Thanks.

    Linden Homes Preview

    There is at least one Linden Home sim region open to the public for previewing. There's no reason potential residents shouldn't be allowed to rez things to test it out as Blush did. That's part of what a preview is for, not just taking a looksee. Remember the auto return feature? Yep, mainland regions have it, too.

    Why do people support sellers that do no mod?

    Please stop taking your feelings about what others have said and/or done out on me. I am not those other people. I feel the same way about other creators who think people don't have the intelligence or ability/capability to mod something so that it fits their needs. There have been so many times I wanted to do something in SL and couldn't because the only items available didn't quite fit my needs and they were no mod. I can't tell you how many projects I had to shelve over the years because of that. Yes, it is your creation. Yes, you have the right to dictate it being mod or no mod. Yes, I have the right to not buy your nomod product. And round and round it goes. *sighs* You seem to be taking the things I'm trying to say personally and that is not how they are meant. If an item is copy and I mess it up then there is no issue. I can just rez out a new one and try again. I assume creators not setting permissions no copy/mod would be a no brainer. After much trial and error, I found it best to make my items copy/mod/no trans.

    Dreams, Reality, and Second Life.

    Something similar happened to me back in 2006. I dreamed I was actually in SL along with my other half. At first it was so real. Then it turned into a nightmare. I've made it a point to not think about SL as I fall asleep since then. It was that bad. I woke up with tears streaming down my face.

    Why do people support sellers that do no mod?

    What accusations? Where did I ask you to explain yourself? I understood you quite well. You seem to be misreading my posts as I said I made the homes, not you. I didn't say anything about you personally.

    Why do people support sellers that do no mod?

    I don't need to re-read. This isn't my first go around with this particular dog and pony show discussion (to mod or not to mod). When it comes to mesh clothing, I have very little choice but to buy no mod. No, I don't like it and there isn't anything anyone can say or do to change my mind about it. I'm too used to being able to tweak things to fit my personality and/or needs. Once upon a time (2005) I made homes that were no mod/no trans because I didn't want people messing up my work or giving it away for free to friends. After talking with other creators and customers, I soon realized the error of my ways. It's not about what the creator wants, especially since there is no stopping copybotting. It's about what the customer needs. How many times has anyone purchased something because what they needed didn't exist, but they could mod it to fit their needs? Have you never purchased something that wasn't exactly what you needed but you knew you could mod it to fit those needs when there was nothing else on the grid that would work? Even you are adding walls to Linden Homes to mod them to your liking/needs. For me, the bottom line is, if it's copy/mod/no trans, I'll buy it. If it's no mod, I'll either keep looking or change my plans but I will NOT buy no mod items. That will not change. Creators who don't think others should have the ability (or talent) to mod items are doing their customers a disservice and outright insulting them.
