  1. My goal was to find out which CPU is better for SL (without paying a 500 bucks worthy CPU like the i9-9900k) I'm aware SL doesn't use multi-cores, but single-core: so in theory it benefits from the highest clocked frequency. I finished my CPU performance comparison FPS-wise in SL with same hardware/settings/viewpoints/avs/etc. for: Ryzen 5 3600 vs. Ryzen 7 1700x [stock + overclocked] check it out here: https://youtu.be/VDpN-w-0sts Intel i3-9350kf vs. i5-9600k [stock + overclocked] check it out here: https://youtu.be/my-J89BM6Nk Conclusion below the vids.
  2. The new trend in advertising of parcel rental prices is pricing by the meter. I am one who stops to do the math before I make any kind of financial decision- and I thought I'd pass on my research. I came across some advertising of Company A that said "0.26 L$ a meter a week for normal land and water parcels 0.29 L$ a meter a week for protected roadside parcels 0.33 L$ a meter a week for protected waterside and waterway parcel." At first glance it's a price to make you go WOW when Company B sells a parcel for L3094 a week. Ooooo That MUST be a better deal, right? Let's look at the numbers. Take a random parcel I found: (roadside) 2368m for $L447 for 812 prims a week by Company B standards. BTW this pricing is per prim according to the company itself. Let's compare it to Company A's pricing policy per meter: using my calculator, I did .29 x 2368 = 686.72. WOW that is 239.72 L more expensive! That is nearly 54% higher! Just by pricing it by meter. Be aware, when you parcel off land, LL AUTOMATICALLY assigns prims to the parcel so there can be no prim difference without "playing with the prim sharing" in the region. Such as... Apartments- everyone getting 50 prims (when the space actually gives 150 prims); companies using the sky for skydomes thus lowering the amount of prims available per parcel, companies "borrowing prims" from other parcels in the same region, etc etc. These are all tactics that they use to attract renters. Oh we have more prims per parcel! we have a larger space! Oh and heaven forbid if you rent out a larger space, less prim parcel - say.... 16384 meters with only 1/2 the amount of prims LL assigns because they used them for other parcels... Company A's price would be (roadside) L$4752 for 2600 prims vs Company B's L$3074 for 5625 prims... Which company would you choose? Be smart when comparing companies. Many are just trying to rip off the consumer. Why am I telling you this secret? Because I used to be one who was ripped off, and I have found a company who is SMART about their pricing. Just food for thought.
