I apologize for the false alarm. Lucifer caught me on FB, met me inworld and talked me into sleeping on it (I have something like 6 weeks to cancel my cancellation).

UPDATE: I kept my account after all. I'm pretty ashamed of the drama fit, so apologies to one and all.

Wild how in 2023 we still have to close the program to log in with a different account and there's no 'silent login' available like we had in 1999 with most chat platforms hahaha.
Yeah, I keep a lot of people on Invisible for that reason but its not fool proof at all.

File under whoops.

So, the last week or so, I've had this weird issue. I simply, could not teleport onto my own parcel. It always dropped me next door with "Cannot teleport closer."

Apparently, I had accidentally blocked teleport routing. i didn't even know that was possible.

What I hate the most is confessing my dumbness to whoever tries to help me.

Maximum Length of a Group Notice:
512 single-byte characters.
I call bullshit. Sure, in a notice's text field and the toast pop ups, the limit is 512 (technically it's 511, but not worth going into the reasons for this). But reading a notice from the Group Profile window, I'm not seeing it. I sent a notice that is a total of 483 characters. Total. Not a lot of nonsensical encoded baby talk chatter, just straight ASCII and 3 carriage returns. And the notice in the Profile window is cut off at 472.

I am not the model of brevity in notices, so restrictions as they stand often kill me when composing a notice. But I need to close out with a "Sincerely" or more likely a "Cheers!", Linden. Don't make me stop doing that!

Also, why not just go to a full 1K text limit? Would that extra 512 cause disruptions in the system, LL? Bring down the network? Cause fires and earthquakes on the grid?

:grr:

The early Lindens were heavily focused on land/building/scripting, since that was THEIR interests and that of the techy sandboxer crowd they communicated with the most, over social and community features.

Personally, I always believed LL should have bought Ning and integrated it with SL.

I tp'ed into a store location and found myself standing on the head of a guy avatar literally double my height. I was afraid to jump off for fear of breaking my neck.

At least his proportions looked pretty good. He had the appearance of basketball player, thin but athletic.

Had my fair share of creepy interactions on my old profile. Didn't give them much mind and ignored them.

The time is right, your perfume fills my head
The stars get red, and, oh, the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying somethin' stupid like, "we fuck lol"

I am playing a necromancer in Diablo IV and the build I have uses a skill called corpse explosion - basically after you kill stuff, you can make their corpse explode, which damages other creatures, which causes a chain reaction of more corpses and more explosions
we need corpse explosion in SL :p

In Season 2, I had an amulet that automatically fired CE whenever you moved in range. So after my skels and golem blitz the mass of demons, I just walk behind and let everything blow up! I pictured myself filing my fingernails as I did so.
