I just spent all my savings on upgrading my computer, primarily so i could be up to date with Second Life. I upgraded to a 64 bit system with 8 gigs of RAM which is probably pretty standard now. Everything works fine EXCEPT SL. The system freezes after a few minutes. So I tried
1. Using recommended graphics drivers as per wiki : no difference. Tried different drivers …no good.
2. Spent hours testing RAM with no difference. Firestorm works with 4 gigs of RAM which makes having 64 bits pointless.
3. Reinstalled Windows and just installed FS, no difference.
4. Posted a jira to FS site no one has answered. This could take months.
Yesterday I spent hours researching, reading forums and posting to them. One thread decided it was my power supply that needed upgrading. Not doing that would mean dismantling the PC. This is very frustrating.
I am able to go into SL providing I have my graphics set to low. I managed to do my shift.
I was crashing so much Siani created a body double for me. But this is not funny when it come down to it. My SL experience with low graphics is not good. All I can do is wait for the Jira response. It is very frustrating especially as everything is supposed to be better. Everything else on my computer works fine its just SL.

it’s a Girl Documentary Film
In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls(1) are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”. Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members. The war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls. Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl reveals the issue. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women. The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice. It’s a Girl is now available for screening events globally. (Learn more about bringing It’s a Girl to your city!)
The Libor scandal is a series of fraudulent actions connected to the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) and also the resulting investigation and reaction. The Libor is an average interest rate calculated through submissions of interest rates by major banks in London. The scandal arose when it was discovered that banks were falsely inflating or deflating their rates so as to profit from trades, or to give the impression that they were more creditworthy than they were. Libor underpins approximately $350 trillion in derivatives. It is controlled by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA).
The banks are supposed to submit the actual interest rates they are paying, or would expect to pay, for borrowing from other banks. The Libor is supposed to be the total assessment of the health of the financial system because if the banks being polled feel confident about the state of things, they report a low number and if the member banks feel a low degree of confidence in the financial system, they report a higher interest rate number. In June 2012, multiple criminal settlements by Barclays Bank revealed significant fraud and collusion by member banks connected to the rate submissions, leading to the scandal.
Because Libor is used in U.S. derivatives markets, an attempt to manipulate Libor is an attempt to manipulate U.S. derivatives markets, and thus a violation of American law. Since mortgages, student loans, financial derivatives, and other financial products often rely on Libor as a reference rate, the manipulation of submissions used to calculate those rates can have significant negative effects on consumers and financial markets worldwide.
On 27 July 2012, the Financial Times published an article by a former trader which stated that Libor manipulation had been common since at least 1991. Further reports on this have since come from the BBC and Reuters. On 28 November 2012, the Finance Committee of the Bundestag held a hearing to learn more about this.
George Osbourne at JP Morgan offices.
AND its JP Morgan who suffers or do they? :>
America’s scandal-racked JP Morgan Chase smashed Wall Street’s forecasts yesterday with the help of a revival in so-called simple banking.
The bank, the world’s biggest by assets, has been reeling in the wake of a trading scandal in which Bruno Iksil, nicknamed the London Whale, lost $5.8bn (£3.6bn) through derivatives trades.
Yesterday, however, a boom in simple mortgage lending helped the bank to roar back and post a $1.4bn rise in third-quarter post-tax profits, which came in at $5.7bn.
The bank’s earnings per share of $1.40 were well ahead of analysts’ forecasts of $1.21, and the 34 per cent rise in profits came in a traditionally quiet quarter for earnings.
Simple banking simple mortgage lending, seems to me “simple” equals the ordinary person. AND:>
The Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group could receive a major discount to possible UK libor-rigging fines given each lender is substantially owned by the British taxpayer, legal experts have told the IBTimes UK.
RBS, which is 83 percent owned by the government, is said to be within days of agreeing a settlement with US and UK authorities that could mean around £500m ($785m/€577m) in fines. Lloyds, which is 41 percent owned by the taxpayer, is one of a number of banks being investigated by US and UK authorities for its role in the scandal but has yet to reach a settlement.
JP Morgan is the biggest bank in the world with assets of $2 trillion. Who owns it? Mainly the private investment group The Vanguard Group. Which means Not Us. Its in Private hands. No doubt the top 1% in America. Do they pay fines? Do they suffer losses? No. Do we? Yes. Its not right AND its not fair. The Poor get Poorer The Rich get Richer Everybody Knows. No one is doing anything about it.
“Welcome To Your World” it says at the top of the page of The Declaration of Human Rights. This is a joke. The world does not belong to us it belongs to the rich. The top 7%. The crime of poverty kills, has killed many many more than The Holocaust. It is a crime far worse than any in human history. If the rich gave up a small percentage of their accumulating wealth millions would be saved. Millions of kids would survive. Millions would not live in Poverty, in misery. I DEMAND AS A CITIZEN OF EARTH THAT THIS SITUATION CHANGE! NOW! I DEMAND THAT THE VERY RICH BE BROUGHT TO ACCOUNT! THEY ARE MURDERERS! THEY ARE COMMITTING A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY! THEY ARE DOING IT WITH OUR PERMISSION THEREFORE WE ARE ALL MURDERERS UNLESS WE STAND UP AND DEMAND AN END TO EXPLOITATION OF THE POOR SO THE VERY RICH CAN HAVE GOLD BATHROOM TAPS!!!!! YES THEY ARE LIVING IN DECADENCE FAR WORSE THAN ANY OTHER PERIOD IN HUMAN HISTORY> THEY CONTROL GOVERNMENTS> THEY CONTROL US! STAND UP AND JOIN ME IN DISSEMINATING THE CRIME OF POVERTY CHARTER WHICH SIMPLY STATES:
http://poverty.com : 25,000 people mainly kids die everyday through not having enough to eat. I lived in India for a couple of years. One day I was sitting at a cafe in Bodh Gaya Bihar (the poorest state) and a westerner was walking along being hassled by street kids. This is standard practice. Anyway he was eating sweets. He didn’t like the one he was eating so he threw the half eaten sweet on to a rubbish dump. 5 kids fought over it.
What do you get? A Broken Link. And two results one to wiki and one to a book:
A clear explanation and provocative look at the impact of new technologies on world society.
Needing guidance and seeking insight, the Council of Europe approached Pierre Lévy, one of the world’s most important and well-respected theorists of digital culture, for a report on the state (and, frankly, the nature) of cyberspace. The result is this extraordinary document, a perfectly lucid and accessible description of cyberspace-from infrastructure to practical applications-along with an inspired, far-reaching exploration of its ramifications. A window on the digital world for the technologically timid, the book also offers a brilliant vision of the philosophical and social realities and possibilities of cyberspace for the adept and novice alike.

The Wayback Machine is an historical archive of preserved web pages. Type in a URL and start surfing through time!
Most societies agree that it is important to preserve artifacts of their culture and heritage. Without such artifacts, civilization has no memory and no mechanism to learn from its successes and failures. Our culture now produces more and more artifacts in digital form. Internet Archive’s mission is to help preserve those artifacts and create an Internet library for researchers, historians, and scholars. The Archive collaborates with institutions including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian.
The archive of pages goes back to 1996. The original Wayback Machine interface was released in 2001 with about 10 billion pages.
