New Photo Policies

Greetings members! I wanted to announce a new photo policy on the Elf Clan Ning site.



As we all know, photos take up space... and we are limited to 10 gigs on the Elf Clan Ning site. We aren't anywhere near 10 gigs yet, but that eventuality will come. Photos are the dominant user of storage space.



Please understand we WANT you to upload photos. Photos are great. We just want you to help us be discriminating and conservative of our available space.

A week in the life of Second Life

I had been really busy last week with plans a preparations for Merlin and my wedding. There was a place to prepare for my mertime, and shopping with Artwear for dance animations, plus dancing with Art and Rose (trying to keep my from having a nervous breakdown I suppose). Then there was the dress rehearsal on Saturday night. I'm so glad I got the chance to take photos during that, but maybe it's true about not letting the groom see you in full dress prior to the wedding. Artwear and I had been… Continue

Naturalistic Fallacy: Natural Doesn't Mean Safe!

Every once in a while, you hear some health nut or organic produce advocate say "If it's natural, it's safe!" They repeat this without questioning it. But when you seriously think about it, you realize just how false that line of thinking. Scholars of logic have a few names for this line of thinking: "Naturalistic Fallacy" or "Appeal to Nature". It is defined as the mistaken assumption that because something is natural, it is safe or morally acceptable.



There are numerous arguments… Continue

VIDEO CARDS AND COMPUTER CONFIGURATION

IMPORTANT: Be sure to check the comments for addendums and latest information.



I often get asked about ways to speed up Second Life, especially in areas of graphics.



There are three things computer-wise that directly affect SL speed:



1. Duo core as opposed to single-core computer (duo core is of course better)

2. At least 2 gigs RAM (3 gigs is even better)

3. Video card



Today, one can buy a decent duo-core entire computer for about… Continue

I meant to say...

Just wanted to let everyone know who came to the little WInter Fun Fest that I had a blast!! Skiing/sledding down the slope was and adventure in itself and only Koni made it into the cove on the other side of the tents. Poor Noah managed to sled back up the slope and fall off the back side, which helped keep my sides aching a while. Then I got so turned around I fell off the platform myself.



Eren also provided a great snowball system that counts the number of times you've been… Continue

Gotta Love Pixies

Pixies are interesting and wonderful creatures. Their primary hobby is pulling pranks. They hone this skill not by doing so on a regular basis, but sitting around in little pixie circles trying to work up something majorly awesome. At least, that's how ours work.



So I thought I would mention a word or two about historic pixie pranks and their effect on our group.



THE ORC/PIXIE WAR

The most notable was when the pixies decided the Orc Embassy needed some…

Crashity Crash, Laggity Lag

Fact of usage:



I have crashed more in the last week than I've crashed in the last 6 months (using the standard SL viewer). Reports are coming in from others experiencing the same thing.



The drop-dead, stand-still lag caused by teleporting avatars (in or out) is becoming more than irritating. It's a constant stowstopper nuisance.



Why is performance so poor? This is worse than 5 years ago.



Just sayin'. Hope you folks at Linden Lab manage to get it… Continue

Continuing to theme out the skybox

I have been adding items to the skybox rather slowly. Wanted everything to be just right. My gramaphone was there and I've listened to it quite regularly. Tonight I added a special treat. I heard the #1 cylinder being played in the tavern due to the primary sound system being borked. I was so enchanted by the music (Andrews Sisters, etc) that I just had to add this special treat to my current set up. Thanks to Eren for producing such high quality music on SL.…

Please Welcome Clarence!

A few of you will have noticed that the Thirsty Dragon has a new resident. His name is Clarence and he is a kitten. He has made friends with Topi the rat and is getting used to his new home.



In time he will get to know you and will allow you to pet him and eventually he will learn speak to you. He is very clever. I hope you will become friends with Clarence and be kind to him.



However, beware. He will soon learn who is naughty and who is nice and will attack anyone who is… Continue

Credit Where Credit Due pt 2

I have often said that while I will be very frank in regard to Second Life and customer relations, I will also give pats on the back when such are due. In truth, I wish I had reason to do this more often. This is one of my favorite things.

To a Tavern-Keeper (For Bryster Shan)

Who keeps the bartop free from rat and ork

and pixie's tricks and Dwagon's probing snout?

"A drink for you I'm thinking," asks, uncorks

and pours us rums, or Wootnog, dwarven stout?

Who bids us hearty welcome, knows our names,

acknowledging each one of us as "Lord"

or "Lady," warm and bright as any flame,

unsatisfied until our drinks he's poured?

How empty would our Second Evenings be

without the fellowship he catalyzes

with cookies, dancing,… Continue

The Monty Python 16-Disc Set

I recently purchased the entire Monty Python 16-Disc set. Here is my review of that product:



While the contents of this package are quite good and bits of it even moderately funny, I was especially entranced by the fine packaging, which although likely created by marketers and not the performers themselves, still contains quite a bit of humor and imagination. I especially enjoyed the "bright green sticker which covered otherwise informative and humorous parts of the original box". My… Continue

CONTINUING SL BUGS

While trying to move an object, I set positioning to LOCAL movement mode for proper alignment. I was amused/irritated to discover-- still existing-- an OLD bug of the item not moving by root prim alignment. In short, it doesn't follow its own root prim orientation. This makes it very difficult to align builds and avatar accessories.



At one time this worked fine. Then following an update, it no longer worked. It's an induced bug... and it's an OLD bug. This problem causes builders,… Continue
