  1. I agree completely. I went to a talk given in-world (on another account) by the new Philip-account some years ago. Here's the video. There is about 5 minutes of dead air at the beginning, and then an avatar begins introducing Philip at about 05:30 by showing the (then-blank) profile of the new Philip-account, shortly after which Philip begins speaking at about 07:30. He's a very interesting speaker, and several of his talks are on YouTube as real-life recordings. Compare the voices if you wish. Its definitely him, imho.
  2. Thoughts Degauss, de·gauss /dēˈɡous/ verb 1.remove unwanted magnetism from (a television or monitor) in order to correct color disturbance:"I degaussed my monitor, but the ghost images remain" 2.destroy the data on (a data storage device) by removing its magnetism:"modern drives will get destroyed if they are degaussed"
  3. Total General Moderate Adult Total 100% 12% 63% 25% As one can see, only 12% of the land mass is General, and so only 12% has Adult Activity forbidden on per http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Adult_Content_FAQ
  4. Thank you for the information. In most of life it would be odd to have something so prevalent be meaningless, but prevalent and meaningless are just two sides of the same coin in the general discussion forum 😊 Indeed. I am in the process of developing the same opinion independently.

  6. Aye. Thank you for making SL more welcoming to men. My experience is that there are many such as you in SL. To find happiness in SL, one need only get out and explore a little bit.
  7. There are very few questions posted on the forums that are not easily answered by a web search.
  8. While I'm in SL primarily for the creative side, and while creating usually means mesh, textures, or scripts, sometimes creating means forming stories with words. In roleplay, the stories and actions are complex enough that one needs one's hands for the keyboard. What one does with the fantasy later is one's own business. Some females report back the next day that they "saved it up for later." I have no idea what that means 😎.
  9. See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Residents'_privacy_rights Emphasis added. So, you see it depends on where they are sharing the chat logs. If they are sharing inworld, file an Abuse Report (AR). If they are pasting it outside SL, read carefully the green text above and at the first-link provided.
  10. My world has three moons. If I could make three moons in EEP, that would make me switch.
  11. Yeah, hard to get by without a Space Navigator for large projects. I've used one for years also.
  12. I'm told the old 5-sim version is now a 3-sim museum version on Linden Land at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Galaxy FORWARD/108/175/26 , but no rentals because the Lindens run their museums that way. Zhoa Boa 's estate has a one-sim version as a club. One SIM is plenty for a dance-hall version. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Desolate/188/171/30.
  13. Humour Translunar translunar adjective trans·lunar | \ (ˈ)tran(t)s, -raan-, -nz+\ Definition of translunar : of or relating to the entry into or movement along a trajectory between a celestial body (such as the earth) and the moon by a spacecraft translunar injection translunar burn
  14. US$600 minimum before an entity is required to give you a 1099 in most cases. See; https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-1099-misc TurboTax gives the filer an opportunity to declare small bits of miscellaneous income. I don't know what is the cutoff for applicability; I let TurboTax decide what to do.
  15. An advantage of using a single texture with offsets for displays (numerical in this case) is that the entire texture is loaded in the viewer of nearby avatars, and thus a change (numerical in this case) is fast even for bandwidth constrained clients or on heavily loaded servers.
  16. The sounds are cached by your viewer. Depending on your viewer preference settings, the caching may or may not survive a viewer relog event. The complicates testing.
  17. You have to either time the tour such that you can preplay the sound at zero volume before you truly play it at volume, or have a second prim doing so silently in parallel. If your situation (timing and geometry) allows you might dedicate a prim in each room for the purpose of preplaying silently the sound intended for the next room.
