I recently discovered that I can launch my freebie raft from my skybox at 700 meters, float over all the properties that surround me, and land in the water in the next sim. Sweet! No waterfront needed! I haven't tested how far you can glide from even higher up... it may be possible to cross several sims to another ocean from 1000 or 1500 meters high. So, I'm ready to launch my flying raft into the sunset...

I've noticed SL is alot more quiet than it used to be...


I've noticed that this camping site has been around forever, and I do not understand why, with the new camping\bot regulations and all.
So, if you are looking for a great place to camp, you may go here:

The snow has fallen on the Steamlands, holiday decorations are out, and there is ice skating and hot cocoa all over the place!
Beautiful, romantic and quite a lot of fun.
Come and visit Caledon & the Realm of the Roses, Steelhead, New Babbage and our other friends and neighbors in the lands of Steam.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a safe and prosperous New Year to all.

I've noticed that this camping site has been around forever, and I do not understand why, with such a horrible name and all.

So, if you are looking for a great place to camp.

Camp with slasher movie name:

Um...I died for the first time in SL. I was behind the scenes, doing sound effects for our university's House of Usher beta-test, with damage on for the sim.

The actors wanted a distant pistol-shot. I provided it...and shot myself with a flintlock :)

Hilarity ensued.

How is it that discussion of the upcoming script limitations, targeting resize scripts, seems to be happening in an info vacuum that's forgotten why resize scripts are utilized; an insecure environment that makes it a gamble to sell user-modifiable content?

I'm happy that they're introducing new features to LSL that make it possible to resize multi-prim objects without a copy of the script in each prim. I haven't been using resize scripts because of lag concerns, and now I can consider it.

But people who have already been using resize scripts and may have them installed in hundreds of products just got the heave-ho under the bus.

And on the heels of the XStreet debacle? Sloppy. The LSL updates should happen with a significant lead time before the limitations. That would help mediate the merchant hate.
