NCI has daily classes/events held at their locations with times and a schedule routine.
To keep track of classes and attend them there are three choices:

1. Go to one of the NCI locations and look at the big schedule board.

2. Join the New Citizens Inc or the NCI Alumni Association group and get announcements on classes and events (tutorial on this soon to come!)

3. See the classes/events in SEARCH:

Open your SEARCH tool from the bottom of your Second Life viewer.

Go to the EVENTS tab.

Type ‘NCI’ in the searching field and hit ENTER.

Find the class you want to attend and click on “Notify” to be notified 5 minutes before class and get a teleport to the classroom.

If you are looking for NCI events specificly or NCI classes specificly, just type in the searching field ‘NCI Class’ or for events ‘NCI Event’.

[TUTOR] How to open a Link

This tutorial will explain to you how to open a link in Second Life that is not a clickable URL. You can most likely see a link in someone’s profile (where you cannot use HTML or the normal <a href= thing), or from chat text—both are total difference, but will be explained here.

First we will start with viewing it from public chat. Unlike IM, public chat on screen is NOT clickable, this means you cannot just *click* the URL to open it…
You need to:

1. Click on LOCAL CHAT at the bottom of your Second Life viewer.


2. Click the purple-colored link.

3. Wait for your browser to open and load.

-That’s it! Simple, ain’t it? Well, this one is a little bit more tricky…

Now I will explain how to open a link from an un-openable/clickable place, such as someone’s profile.
Like me, some people like putting MORE links in their profile than just the WEB tab, so the other sections of the profile seems like the perfect place—And it is. :)
Here is how to open it:

1. Open the person’s profile (right-click on avatar > PROFILE -or- SEARCH > PEOPLE).

2. Hold your left mouse-button and select and highlight the Link/URL.

3. Press CTRL+C (Control key and C letter) on your keyboard.

4. Open your browser.

5. Press CTRL+V (Control key and V letter) on your keyboard to paste the URL. Or, right-click on the URL bar and choose from the menu PASTE.

6. Hit ENTER for it to load.

There you have it! :D

Thanks to Torley Linden with his video tutorial on parcel music, I been working on a notecard full with music streams from Digitally Imported. I thought maybe I should put it here too, so other people could use the streams. These streams are free and you can use them on your parcel.

Go to “About Land“, and in the “Media” tab there’s “Music URL” section. In there you will paste (CTRL+V) the music stream.

[TUTOR] Giving all items from Contents tab (script)

Tired of giving things to people with the “Buying” method? Want to give someone a free item without them having to do the long right click -> Buy/Open?? No worry, there is an easier way to solve this with a little scripting—-Folks can get the contents of the object with only a simple left-click.

—-

First we need the object/prim that will be the content giver, it could be any object. I will use the simple plywood cube for example.

Next we’ll give our object a name in the General tab.

Why give a name? Great question. The name of the object will be our folder name once we’ve got a copy from the contents of the object. It automatically sets it to be the folder’s name.

We shall now put the contents you want to give (e.g. a notecard, clothing, object, sound, etc’). It can be any item. But if it’s more than one, better make a folder within your inventory and put them in the folder, *then* drop them into the Contents tab.

I will put a single Pink Carpet that I want to give for free. Do not worry—-a copy of the object will still be in your inventory. Unless it’s a non-copy permission object.

Finally, we now make the script that will give the contents to whoever touches the object.

Copy & Paste these following lines to a new script—-Make a new script by clicking the “New Script..” button. (remember to delete any other lines that are in the default new script before! Or else the script won’t work).

Script by Belita Tandino:

—-

//For integer owneronly if it equals 0, anyone can recieve contents, if it is 1, only the owner can.
integer owneronly = 0;
key owner;
list gInventoryList;
list getInventoryList()
{
integer    i;
integer    n = llGetInventoryNumber(INVENTORY_ALL);
list          result = [];

for( i = 0; i < n; i++ )
{
result += [ llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_ALL, i) ];
}
return result;
}
default
{
state_entry()
{
owner = llGetOwner();

gInventoryList = getInventoryList();
}

touch_start(integer total_number)
{
integer i;
for (i=0;i<total_number;i++)
{
key target = llDetectedKey(i);

if ( (target != owner) && (owneronly == 1) )  // person clicking isn’t owner and owneronly is set;
{
llInstantMessage(target,”Sorry, only the owner is allowed to get my contents.”);
return;
}
{
llGiveInventoryList(llDetectedKey(i), llGetObjectName(), gInventoryList );
}
}
}
changed( integer change )
{
if ( change == CHANGED_INVENTORY )
gInventoryList = getInventoryList();
}
}

—-

Save the script and close it. You will get a “Compile successful, saving…”. After it being saved: “Save complete.”

Close the script window and touch your object—-Accept the offer and look in your Inventory for a folder named as the contents giver’s name.

There you have it :) Well done!

[TUTOR] Disable from going AFK

Annoyed from going AFK and then being logged off all the time when you leave Second Life alone? There is a solution for that not to happen!

Go to Advanced menu by hitting CTRL+ALT+D on your keyboard. Then Character -> Character Tests -> Go Away/AFK When Idle.

Or a less easier way is via “Debug Settings…”, type in the field “AllowIdleAFK”. Now set it to “FALSE”.
