  1. Thanks for the reply. Although I am not scared of scripting, my only experience with it is in 3ds max and second life. A small script that replaces the names on Poser bvh export would be fantastic, and even a stand alone one would be nice, but I wouldn't even know where to start!
  2. Hello all, I'm not sure how many people use Poser for their SL animations, but I ran into the following: The old avatar I used in Poser had a skeleton with standard Poser naming. (hip, chest, lCollar, rThigh, etc.) These names are, as far as I know, essential for mirroring poses in Poser. The SL bvh importer still recognises these bones since the upgrade of the skeleton to Bento, but the added bones for the fingers for example will not take the Poser standards (lMiddle1 instead of mHandMiddle1Left). Does anyone know if there's a workaround for this? (other than manually altering
  3. I was also looking for this rig, it seems the link is dead. Also, which are the bones that need to be in the rig for a working bhv file? The available FBX rig can be imported into Poser, but with flaws. I cleaned it up in 3ds Max so it works in Poser, but it won't produce any BHV files that are recognised by SL. (I used a human avatar and removed the tail, quad leg and wing bones, as well as the extra spine ones which borked the rig in Poser. Also I removed the bones that are used for volume rather than transformations (BUTT, BELLY etc).
  4. Thanks Theresa, looks like I turned off the automatic updates for the graphics driver....shame on me!
  5. I was wondering if anyone has experienced the following (and of course if someone has an explanation, or even better a solution): When I start SL (I've used different viewers) I usually get 60fps (capped by my NVidia software, medium-high graphic settings). When SL is inactive, by opening a webbrowser or any other program, the framerate drops to 20fps or so and it pops back to 60fps when activated again, which was always been the case. But what is (relatively (for a couple of months)) new to me is that when I keep SL inactive for a longer period, which seems to vary between 30 seconds and seve

Both of those were clear in my OP. So I'll defend that position unless people show it to be mistaken. Going by the vast number of times the curve in question is mentioned, we can conclude it is there. Just because you don't see it and have not experienced it, does not mean it is not there. It is. So the remaining question is what that curve exactly is. It's a strange concept, since I see

  9. To me it looks like you have a problem with the weights. The parts that get deformed are possibly weighted to your shoulders or neck. If those bones are made wider or shorter with the avatar sliders, the mesh will deform accordingly. Another possibility is your skeleton in Blender not being scaled properly. Make sure to use the standard avatar skeleton and do not include joint positions inyour upload. Yet another possibility is the affected parts have more than 4 bones assigned, that can give unexpected deformations. I wonder which bones that would be in that location though.

  14. It's also twice the median household income in the US ($50k) and about twice the median in the Netherlands (EUR35k). As I said, nothing to get excited about. (and nothing to be ashamed for either of course)

There could be more, but going by the amount of people cashing out more than $5000 a month (2010 figure), under 200 people, it's very possible she was the first and only one. BTW...Are you an SL millionaire when you cashed out a million or when you have a million dollar, all of it made in SL, in your RL bank account? I wouldn't consider someone who made 1.2 million in 10 years a millionaire, unless the

If that's not enough, let's look at 24794 some more: 2 is a the first prime number, 47 is the 15th. 15 minus 1 is 14, double the sacred 7. That leaves us with 94, which is the exact percentage of empty space on mainland! I noted the illuminati connection in my Class 69 - sim theory also, so with what you mathematically proved here now, we can take that for granted, which bids the question how a L$ actually looks like, but I guess they keep them under lock so we won´t know it looks as
  17. I don't disagree with you, but I'm baffled why you quoted me I meant that $10k, (overestimated or not) a month is apparently worth mentioning by Ebbe as a success, while in RL such an income is just meh. It's substantially more than most make, but it's not a fortune by any means.
  18. 55 million in tiers with 60 million in cash outs sounds more like almost under water than over head

  20. I still find it all very unlikely, but that's not at all the point I've been trying to make. I have no trouble believing people sold 100s of 1000s of items. I must have sold 10s of 1000s myself over the years, in a niche market, plus my latest addition probably dates back to 2008. I kept posting because someone said something along the line of "it's pretty easy to sell that much". My point was, in relation to the title of the thread, that, according to Ebbe's statement, apparently it's only possible for the elite of the elite of SL merchants to make an income in SL for an extended period, th
  21. You are right, if the dresses are $4 each, which, as I made perfectly clear, is very unlikely looking at the dresses in the store you mention, or any other store I can find for that matter.
  22. I went by the total revenues, 300,000 dresses at $4....that's 1.2 million. If the dresses are cheaper, you'll need to sell more of them.
  23. It is hard to believe because I calculated from the moment the grid went live. It isn't hard to believe that a store with a loyal customer base sells 90 dresses an hour when they hit the grid or marketplace, for a short amount of time. It is hard to believe that one person sells over 200 dresses a day, every day, for over a decade. I didn't pick the priced down ones, I took an average price. It doesn't matter one single bit that they were more expensive in the past, unless you think that the majority of customers buys at full price. How are 100 dresses a day more than 9 an hour? (???) A day

Anshe Chung was pretty famous in the chess world, no idea if that qualifies as general public. Not sure if I'm allowed to post the video so I won't, but Gary Kasparov got the Ashe treatment in 2008.
  25. I also made a melon last year...or wait what did you say? I'm pretty sure the 1.2 million is an overestimation. But even if I am wrong, should we conclude that in 12.5 years time SL produced two millionaires? TWO? Out of 45,000,000 sign ups (which include alts and bots, but still)...
