I got an email from someone wanting to buy tents in SL, last night. It was about 12:30am and I logged in and started out showing a few where I was (in Ambat), but it was too cramped. I went to their sim and pulled out a lot - they want to use tents in a marketplace. I asked them how many, and they thought 16-20 - so I said I'd sell them copiable tents as is would be a shame to have to buy so many. Ordinarily a copiable item would sell for much more than a non-copy item, but I told them I'd sell the copiable tents for the same price as non-c if they gave me a spot in their market. I rezzed the tents, changed the permissions, and set them for sale. They wound up buying five tents and I gave them another. The point of this is not to relate how nice-and-or-stupid I am (take your pick) but this:
First thing this morning I received an anxious email from the buyer saying the tents were no-mod/no-copy/no-transfer. NOT how I had set the perms. I went there and we did various things like rezzing, changing, trying to duplicate, checking, etc. What was happening was that on the ground the tent looked good - I took it and looked at perms in inventory: no/no/no. The were no/no/no for her. I didn't solve the problem but just gave her boxed tents which held their permissions. I have no clue what it was - after I went home I rezzed the tent and changed the perms, which stayed correct in my inventory. I filed a bug report for what it's worth.
I spent some time today sorting in my inventory. My inventory is nine miles long. I didn't look at the search total (too scary) but it was well over 12k. I threw out a lot and got it down to 11k. I decided to divide and conquer, so I made two folders:
Made by Me
Made by Others
Into mine I put 8 bazillion objects and textures, whole finished projects, and anything else I have made.
Into the other I put most of what was left.
There are also folders for notecards, landmarks, and things like that.
I think I can organise the Others folder as it's fairly static.
Then I can start trying to organise my textures by dividing them into artwork, clothing, etc.
I can get a texture organiser like Clio says I should get, and start plunking things in it.
This is where those who use illegal uppers have a distinct advantage, as they'd be enthralled by this task and work for a week before collapsing.
I was waiting for multiple-selection in inventory before I did this... and we've had that for a while now. I have NO EXCUSE.
