    Perform handshake between two prims

    What this does is, on a common channel, two prims will inform each other of their respective UUID's. This can be used to extend a particle chain from one prim to another, such as a leash, or any other functionality dependent on the UUID's of two respecitve prims. This has been tested ONLY for...

    Staffing agencies *sigh*

    I just sent this email to a new staffing agency which has placed me in an assignment. Am I off base on this, or should I be as angry as I feel about this? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Look, I'm sorry, but every single day...

    RLV configurable force attach on sit - no scripting knowledge required

    This is bleeding edge code; I've been able to test it with a couple of items but it's going to take some testing and maybe some wtf?s to knock the rough edges off. Also, at the moment it MIGHT only attach one item. This project allows someone without extensive scripting knowledge to configure...

    Script to traverse a linkset and report permissions and owner for each asset type?

    I'm pretty sure something like this should already exist as it is helpful when exporting objects. Is there any link traversal script that will report on both the owner and permissions of each prim in a linkset, as to type, prim owner & permissions, texture owner & permissions for each face...

    Anyone have links to the procedure for doing this? A friend of mine died, and I promised her husband that I'd find a way to save the sim so he could heep it on his PC. About half the build are buildings and landscape features I created, so between myself and her husband we should be able to...

    Making a jump animation not snap back to it's starting point.

    I have a jump animation that travels maybe 3 or 4 meters and then (naturally) snaps back to it's starting point. I know why this happens, etc - but I want to eliminate the "snap back" through some mechanism. I've tried using llMoveToTarget and it "sort of" works when I use a shorter jump, but...

    Refactoring Strife's UpdateLinkSitTarget for clarity

    I have (tried) rewriting Strife's well-known UpdateLinkSitTarget function from her page to better understand what it is doing, and to make it more understandable for others. If anyone with strong experience with the original function has time to review please, please do so - I need a serious...

    cheap & lightweight linux laptop?

    I'm having great fun with the big dev laptop everyone helped me buy, it's big, it has a huge display, and will last for several years... But it's big. I use it daily, but only if I'm in someplace for more than a couple hours. Now I need something lightweight (< 3 lb/1.5 Kg) to carry around...

    Problem with poser

    In Poser 10, I have a simple pose ... guy hanging down by his arms and legs with his "hip" raised up, and slowly moving up and down. After breaking splines and doubling key frame 2 to keyframe 3 to constrain the interpolation's "bouncyness" the animation is looking pretty smooth. For a two...

    HTML/CSS question

    I've created both a horizontal menu and a vertical menu for my student final project (we can create anything we want. so long as we meet a minimal list of requirements so this isn't a "cheating" question). The HTML & CSS are very close for both. I know conditional logic is very limited, and I...

    I just picked up a HP ProBook x360 11 G1 EE Notebook PC, need help understanding the specs

    The specs are here; the person I bought it from doubled up on the RAM and SSD drive so I'm really getting a good deal. These are the specs I'm concerned about. The main question is "What do I have to know or do to keep from screwing up? How can I prevent myself from putting in a cable that...
