Today I got up, went to jin shin, went to Les Schwab and bought tires, drove home in a snowstorm that started as I was leaving the tire place, staggered downstairs and threw in a load of laundry... Now I mustn't forget to go in the virtual world to meet the children.
Last night I roaming the Building world in CTCUNI, looking for things to get the children excited. I had good luck with the things I set up for Tuesday, so perhaps these new things will be good, too.
I logged into Second Life to find a notecard from Wayfinder exhorting all merchants to check the permissions and prices on their things. I spent some time doing that as I'd had some bad experiences that I had chalked up to error on my part in one case, and a possible bug in another. It's too easy for me to blame myself, perhaps - apparently there is more mobility to permissions and prices than there should be. I can add my permission experiences to the group's, however, I couldn't draw any conclusions based on my experiences alone. The other thing - objects repricing themselves - I am about 50% sure is a bug. It isn't, to me, as serious. Once several months ago I had a flag pop up to say I'd sold something for 1L. I thought, "I don't have anything for sale for 1L (then)." I rushed over and the vendor was selling some things for 1L - I thought it was a vendor-spaz-out and deleted the vendor. Recently I had someone IM me out of the blue to tell me something of mine was for "sale" at 0L - I had been repricing not long before and thought perhaps I'd inadvertantly done it. Not long ago at my Bodega shop I saw two men "buying" something, but figured out the object was priced at 0L. I went over and spoke to them - said I didn't mind them taking one copy, but I would be unhappy if they took more than that. They were very nice, and one came back later and bought another outfit. It certainly wasn't THEIR fault - I wasn't sure what had happened. Checking my slboutique vendor I found two things with bad perms that were likely to be my fault, and some other assorted bad perms I have no clue about. I'd guess in the first case I used inventory find which had come up with the objects I'd given Mark for DarkLife, which had the wrong perms. That's my assumption. I DID have an experience where I was resizing an object and it flipped to 0L. I'm going to try to reproduce that. I've been remiss to not address this sooner; as I say it's easy for me to blame myself, but also I have so many problems that this certainly was dwarfed.
