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.

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

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.

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

XSTREETSL BOYCOTT BEGINS

XSTREETSL BOYCOTT: JANUARY 1, 2010



Related prior blog: Kiss Freebies Goodbye



January 1, 2010, a grid-wide boycott of XstreetSL was declared. Not all merchants have seen fit to join the boycott. Many have. Whether the boycott will have real effect on XstreetSL-- whether enough merchants stand up and say NO... only time will tell.



Some merchants and customers are totally boycotting… Continue
