  1. Always been a fan of the original series ('65-'89) the stories were a lot better and full episodes were movie length so they had time to tell a good story. Even watching them today, a lot of the effects / creatures and makeup were pretty impressive especially for the time they were made. Yes, it was still campy, but it also had a more mature take on the story / characters. The modern day Dr. Who is aimed more to children than the original was and the classic stories are crammed into 45 min shows so it can't be as involved or fleshed out as the original was. That one episode awhile back with Matt Smith "Spaceships and Dinosaurs" was a perfect example of "Sesame Street in Space" But as an old fan, I still watch the new ones, I just keep hoping they will get better, lol. But there have been a few that were decent and harkened back to the original more. The 2 part episode with David Tennent, "The Imposable Planet" and "The Satan Pit" was probably my fave of the modern one.
  2. Ouch, sorry to hear that, but yea, you could file a ticket but LL has a general policy to not get involved between user disputes. Solution is to never rent land from anyone for any reason. Sounds extreme, but I have been burned even by "legit" well known and established land renters, It's all about business. Had a nice 1/4 sim I was renting awhile back, had it for almost a good year and the land owners were helpful if I had an issue, but one day, they wanted to flip the sim and rent it to peeps looking for PG land (land was mature at the time) so one day "poof" stuff was returned and land was reset with no notice. Good thing I wasn't running a business or store there, lol. But on the bright side I do have a funny reverse story. My first week in SL back in '08, I really wanted land to do stuff on so (since LL had a time limit on when you could purchase lindens, think account had to be a few weeks old) I got some L$ from a 3rd party site and purchased a 1/4 plot. Didn't know about tier so I never paid it and had no idea what that object was in the center of the plott that said "rent box" so I right clicked it and returned the object to the owner, lol. After I was on SL for awhile and learned about tier and how land rental works, then it dawned on me why all my stuff was gone one day, haha.
  3. Not sure if it's the issue, but sounds like it, when you upload an item and duplicate an existing magic box item, it moves the Magic Box item to "Unassociated" items list. At the bottom under associated items I had to manually activate the DD item. Don't worry about deleting the old Magic Box item untill you replace everything, they will just keep poping back untill you take up your magic box inworld, then "Sync" in MP and should clear all the old listings.
  4. I forget what it's called exactly, but It's a nice script engine you can purchase on Marketplace. It's a RP door script. You can edit it to do exactly what you want the door to do (answer a question) and if they don't want to answer it, you can enable the option for the player to "kick down" the door or even "lockpick" it. I believe it even has animations you can use or replace via UUID in the script.
  5. Life before the internet... sunlight and strange creatures.
  6. Folders are nice, but most thing I just put back into a box to save my bloated inventory, lol. I was going to go folders with my market place store, but unless I wanted to relist every item from scratch (50+) I had to migrate with the boxes. So now I just add boxes for new items for consistency.
  7. I use a logitech g-13 game pad (mini keyboard) as my "joystick" it's a nice little controller for my left hand, mouse for the right and keyboard when I need to type. I also use a 360 controller rarely, but does ok for using certain vehicles. Riding bikes or cars is great with the left hand keypad if macrod right, controller for boats, hard to control planes. This is pretty much my setup, minus the headset (use a much better one)
  8. Heh, Funny thing is when they introduced the Direct Delivery system, initially, they said you had to change, so I started to migrate then they changed their minds and said they had no intention of getting rid of current Magic Box system before I moved anything so I just left it at that. Haven't heard anything since until I went to put up a new build on my shop yesterday and saw everything was unlisted in my store. DOH!
  9. Yea, I use the Cool VL viewer too and think the version with the 3.6 renderer and the new beta version have memory leaks. I use the legacy 2.6 renderer version and the viewer doesn't suck up so much memory, infact, I could be inworld for like 6 hours and barely hit over 50% memory used.
  10. I saw a few adds facebook like a year ago or more, heh. I think they need a bunch of these type adds though:
  11. Yup, orig issue seems to be LOD but as far as the missing prim things, there are 2 options that can fix and one that can't. 1st one is the Object to Object Occlusion setting. When enabled, it will only rez a certain ammount of objects on your screen at once, so it will seem like the missing prim issue untill you uncheck. When I see the missing prim thing I always go into options and check that setting because I have seen it recheck itself for no reason before, lol. The other is speed rezzing via Daw distance stepping. If you have this enabled sometimes prims don't seem to all come in. With both enabled I usually have great frame rates as I speed rez nothing ... woot!

  13. I looked into the broadcasting license thing not too long ago and found nothing about needing a license to DJ in SL. You do however need a licence to broadcast music if you own a terrestial radio station (broadcasting over radio waves) Internet streaming is not covered since it is not broadcasted via radio tower. But if you own an internet radio station that also broadcasts over a radio frequency then you need a license to broadcast.
