  1. Is "LIFE Properties" owned by Linden Labs?

    I wanted to buy a piece of abandoned land and filed a ticket, as required. I was told that it would be put up for auction. I replied asking why auction it when there is direct interest. I did not get an answer. The auction went off and as predicted, Life properties snapped it up. This one, unlike any other of their lots, has not been set for re-sale (at an astronomical price) nor is it available for rent (also like most any of their lots) and has been that way since they claimed it. So, perhaps there is some connection. Or perhaps it is a coincidence.
  2. What did your avatar look like when you first started SL?

    I love these kinds of threads! Here I am a couple of months into SL; 2010 I can't find the original for 2012 but here is an edited one: 2014: 2017: And finally, a few minutes ago. Even though my avatar is 6 foot tall, most furniture dwarfs her:
  3. Do you have any Mermaid Avatars you'd like to share?

    A couple years ago, I stumbled into a creepy carnival. The rides looked as though they were held together with tape and prayers. I took my chance and played one of those impossible-to-win games where you shoot out a star pattern with a bb-gun. Much to my surprise, I was successful! My prize was a mongoloid looking, half-dead fish in a bag. I felt sorry for it and planned to give it a proper death in my toilet at home. Upon closer inspection, it was a tiny little mermaid! I tossed it into my goldfish tank and was fascinated by the way it decimated the population in a matter of hours. Weeks went on and it grew bigger and bigger. She outgrew tank after tank, a 55 gallon barrel, a tarp-lined pickup truck box and kiddie pool. One night, while some friends and I were doing our darnedest to fill the back of my truck with empty beer cans, I joked that I'd have to house her in my above-ground rubber pool. It was a light-bulb moment and so we set out wrangling the slithery, pokey, BITE-Y mermaid into my pool. You can just make her out on the bottom here: She sulked for a long time...I can't say that I blame her. I keep her fed by forcing her to do tricks for bits of imitation crab on the end of a fishing pole. Its great fun! Although, there are times when she falls out of the pool and thrashes about in the grass. The carnival has since moved on. Folks, let this be a lesson in why you should never take home prize fish in bags!
  4. Lemme See Your Linden Homes! ♥

    I searched for a long time to get the style of home I wanted and on a sim edge. The result was that I am able to have a bit of an "off sim" deal without encroaching on my neighbors. Outside: Inside, I did some remodeling by adding a second floor. There used to be the customary sex bed up there but that has lost out to a covered piano. Overall, it is not a bad little hide-out and I still have 56 prims to use.
  5. As the title suggests, I am looking to buy two side-by-side parcels on horizons. If you have such for sale, please IM me in-world with the price you are asking and a landmark to their location. Thanks!
  6. Privacy Blinds

    In your "About Land" panel on the Options tab, UN-tick "Avatars on other parcels can see and chat with avatars on this parcel" WIth that unticked, they can still cam into the house, just not on you. Of course, if they are on your lot, they will see you.
  7. New Horizon Bids Up to US $50-100

    I am glad to see I am not the only one who is disgusted by that auction. I was excited at first and ready to up my tier from the basic premium to be able to have one of the horizon plots. 3 hours later when I was able to log into the auction site, they were well over what any sane person woudl pay for a 1024. I suppose I can foolishly hope that they turn parts of Mainland, where the linden homes are, into adult rating.
  8. Renewing Premium

    I thought as much...perhaps I was being hopeful is all. I suppose I could downgrade to a freebie account and buy again at the time of year I'd like to be billed on. Thanks for the reply.
  9. Renewing Premium

    Hello everyone; Is ther a way for me to renew my premium account before it is due?
  10. Running Out Of Texture Memory

    I too was having this problem. What I did was go to Prefs>Graphics> Hardware Settings and un-tick Enable Streamed VBO's. It stopped the micro-freezing as well as the texture memorty dump.
  11. Copyright issue or okay?

    Alright - as I thought. Said statue has never been made in RL, as far as I know. I suppose to cover everyone's arses, getting some kind of release from the author of the book, or the author of the person who drew the book's cover can't hurt. One more question though, would I seek permission to have this thing mad in SL by "anyone who could" thus releasing anyone from copyright laws, or would I have to find a creator, hope like made he/she can do it then have that person named in the copyright...thing? *edited to cover the fact that I'm all thumbs today and can't type properly the first time 'round
  12. Copyright issue or okay?

    With all the copyright laws TOS's, EULA's, DCMA's LMNOP's...I am confused. I am smitten with a picture portrayed on a book cover. It is of a statue and I would like to see if I can contract someone in world to make said statue - from sculpts or mesh, doesn't matter at this point - but I would like to know what kind of laws I (or the creator) would be breaking of said statue was made. This would not be for sale (other than the initial compensation for creating such) and would be for my private use. Are things of this nature permitted?
  13. Linden Homes

    Ahh - yes...if I was not in such a big uppity rush, I'd have read one of the posts a few down from mine. Thank you for replying.
  14. Linden Homes

    Good evening everyone. I treated myself to another year of premium membership and picked out a house. I got the LM and decided that I didn't like the one I choose. I want the Tahoe one, but the one with the railings on the deck area and the entrance on the long-side of the house. I abandoned the land and logged in, but now it is just showing the Asian theme house which is funny because I am standing on my newly-abandoned tahoe house. My question is, how do I get the home I am after? I have tried logging out and back in again and refreshing the page. Nothing has worked yet.
