Lately some of my customers wrote me that they cant save the Confignotecard of Heart Tipjar in Second Life. But when the first Customer explained me the problem, I was not able to reproduce the error at least whith main Avatar which did create this Tipjar. But this is because this Avatar has full permission on this Item anyway.
I thought it would be better to check it out with my Alt. And see there… I wasn´t able to save the Notecard too then.
I got the “The server is experiencing unexpected difficulties” errormessage when saving a notecard inside the prim.
At the same time I asked google for the Problem and found out there is already a open Jira Ticket:
So if you anytime notice the same Problem with one of your Products or if you get customer request that they cant save your confignotecard then there is one workaround for you which will fix the Problem for your customers. Indee you should update your Marketplace listing then as well. :P
You need to change at least the Confignotecard to FullPermission which shouldn´t be a problem for you. I cant tell you why the Notecard has to be FullPerm. I just can tell you it will fix the problem and other People commented the same on the Jira. It is anyway nevermind if the Confignotecard is Full Permission. I usualy did create them Copy and Mod only but now they are Fullperm.
So dont expect that LL will fix the issue. Looks like the Jira is open already for years.
However I did fix my Product and had a lot of work telling all my Customers of this Product to delete the old Tipjar so that they can use the new one. I think most of them were very happy that I did send a new Version. And I was also happy that one of my Customers did tell me about the Problem. Its fun to see that not anybody will report Problems. This makes me thinking if they ever did unpack the Product.. if they ever did login to SL again or what is wrong? :D This was sadly a Problem I could not see with my main. For the future I should test scripted objects from time to time with my alt. For new Products I do it anyway but looks like this Problem did appear since some month. I am sure I did not see this Problem with my alt when I created the Tipjar.
However. Everything ok now.
I found a nice first Direct Delivery Impression Article from the Beta Grid. Second Life Resident “Couldbe Yue” wrote a two Parts Article Series about Direct Delivery Beta and you defenetly should check it out as it will concern us Merchants real soon now.

Freshly out of my Cinema 4d Mesh Project I talked about in my latest Blogpost.
Lately there is a new fraud going on. There are scammers who looking for victims in content creator groups. Everyone needs to be alerted and be careful!
Those peoples have stolen accounts and are looking for content creators as there target and will IM them things like “Hey someone has stolen your content” followed by a phishing link which looks like an official LL website. Once “Logged in” their user name and password have been successfully stolen and those scammers have a new stolen account!
So be very careful these days and tell your friends too so that those fraudster cant filch more accounts!

There is a latest news on the Firestorm Blog that they release Firestorm with Mesh Support now..
Due topopular demand we’ve decided we can’t hold back the Firestorm with Mesh support release,however this hasn’t been an easy decision. Unfortunately LL Mesh code comeswith a lot of new bugs and undesirable behaviors which we honestly aren’tcomfortable releasing with. Many of these issues we would consider blockersfora release. The issues which we wouldn’t consider blockers simply do not reachour expectations for a quality release. However, you asked for it! And you’regetting it in its current state!
But I suggest you read on the official Firestorm Blog:
So now the Gold sellers and spammers we know from other Games (MMO´s) like World of Warcraft are arrived in Second Life. The official Second Life Forum is full of “Buy Linden Dollars” spam.
So be careful… I bet you catch malware if you click on one of those links. And you know.. you just can get L$ from Linden Labs on the official Second Life Website. So dont buy L$ on any of these dubious Websites they spam in the Forums.

How to use and change the Settings of the Product:
1. Rez the Tipjar.
2. Wait until the Initialization of the Tipjar is finished.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
3. First let´s customize your Tipjar now. Right click the Tipjar and click “edit”.
4. Go to the content tab.
5. There you will find the tipjarscript and the tipjarconfig
6. Make a copy of the “tipjarconfig” notecard and take it to your Inventory, just so that you have a Backup
7. Read carefully the configuration notecard. There you will find deeper Instructions and all about what you can change and how you do it.
8. After changing the configuration be sure that you click “save”!
9. Wait again until the Tipjar is initialized.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
The Tipjar will restart and initialize your tipjarconfig always if you changed and saved the config.
But after that, the Tipjar is ready to use.
When you made some Settings in the “tipjarconfig” File… and if you are happy with all Settings..
Just duplicate your Tipjar if you need more then one in your Club or Location. As you made already Settings,
the Duplicates will now have the same Settings.
You can also save your tipjarconfig in your Inventory after finishing your Settings. That is the way you can put
it back to a new rezzed Tipjar in case you did deleted every Tipjar from your Land. Good because you dont have
to make these Settings again. But be sure that you only have one tipjarconfig in your Object.
Q: The Tipjar is asking for Permission Debit. What the heck is going on? Can I trust you?
A: Yes, in fact you can trust me. Permission Debit is always needed in Second Life when a Script
want to take money from agent’s account. In the Case of Tipjar´s it is usualy so that your
Staff is logging into the Tipjar but you are the Owner of the Tipjar. If now someone (A Donator)
pays your Staff, the Money first goes through your Avatar and then to the Person who is logged
in to your Tipjar. So basicly the Script just ask you to get permission for this Function and to forward it
to your Staff or anyone who logged into your Tipjar. Anyway be careful in Second Life. Only give permission
if you trust the Creator of the Script you got.
FAQ will be extended in case many Customers ask similar or same Questions about one Topic
Today I just finished my new 10 meter high mesh spiral staircase for Second Life.
I offer two Versions:
This Kit of Spiralstaircases comes already with some very
great colorized and texturized version.That means it includes
already 6 Staircases in a very great design.
I did add 1 very basic
white version. It has the word “DEFAULT” in its name.
You can modify all of the 7 Staircases but you can use the
white default staircase as it has everytexture settings on
default (glow,shininess,brightness and so).for better starting from scratch.
Every Staircase is 10 Meter high and it has rezzed 18 orim equivs (That means 18 prims).
It is not sculped. It is a mesh product and therefor in high quality.
I hope this product will be usefull for you. I also hope you like this product.
I am always open for positiv and negativ critism and ratings as long as it is fair.
You can contact me whenever you have any questions.
THIS PRODUCT IS MADE IN A 3D APPLICATION, WHICH MEANS IT IS
A MESH PRODUCT. YOU WILL NEED A MESH BASED VIEWER TO SEE THESE OBJECTS. (Soon when there are only Meshbased Viewers and when LL did shut down Version 1 based Vievers, this notice here will be outdated and everyone can see Meshbased Products).
Just a short News to anybody who still dont know:
So as you can read in the Linden Labs Blog Post… Mesh has finaly completely arrived.
