    Unsurprisingly, my new laptop can't access Second Life. Or, more correctly, it gets me in there for about fifteen seconds before locking up. I will make a few more stabs at trying to disburse some money immediately on entering, but it appears I'm going to be offgrid until such time as my desktop machine is returned to me.

    Oh, and if anyone tried sending me an IM inworld over the last few weeks? They all got lost on the first crash, sorry.

    The problem is that I can't stay inworld long enough to pay the money I've got. The record today has been 10 seconds.

    I know I'm a big lurker here, but your tier is paid up for quite some time still.

    have you tried an alternative viewer ? try onrez, with all settings to low, or the bog standard linden variety with everything turned down.

    to add to frenchbloke's comments, I've found I get much better performance with Windlight than with the regular viewer, even with the graphics settings higher than zero.

    I'm using the bog standard linden variety with everything turned down. I'm convinced the hated Voice is to blame. I'll try Onrez tomorrow.

    Neo, thanks.

    Warren, I wasn't asking you for $L. The Office will remain as long as you need it there.

    Neo -- I got inworld for a whole ten seconds, and managed to send you L$10K towards my rent in that time, before Onrez died on me again. Hope that helps.

    Hank, I'll pay you back when I can.

    dont worry about it.

    I tend to donate to locations I really like having as neighbors. You aren't the only recipient of such things. Good neighbors are hard to find.

    I would just spend the lindens on something like Giant flying cocks or man eating vulvae

    I think your 10k got there first.

    You should be Good to go for 3 months, from what the script was saying.

    Ahhhh! NOW I know what's going on ;)

    Self-absorbed thing that I am, I've been wondering why you weren't answering my IMs, and why Office Stygian had been sitting as a forlorn and frozen radioactive dump... I of course blamed myself ;)

    Hope you get back to the grid soon - It's not the same without you...

    You killed the office! Replacement coming soon...?

    as you're still having problems with viewers, try SLeek - 100% text based - handy for catching up on im's and the like

    Replacement's in.

    So now you're a bar owner - nice. I took the opp to reacquaint myself with bar work, but with no one around it was like working in that pub that everyone avoids but no one knows why. Built on bad juju land.

    I should probably find that system that lets people tip barmen and install it...
