A general question

Feb 4, 1999, 7:42am
Is there a general locale one can find bots to
download? I am looking for a greeter bot for my
world...Also, instructions on installing it?

Thanks a million,

Terry (Holistic1)

Well,,, one thing would be that when new objects do become available, they are
zip separately and put on the web as new objects for a certain period of
time...that would sure make things easier for those of us who have our own
object paths not having to hunt and download each object.

Well, you can always form a loosely knit
corporation and all of the bitchers, whiners and
complainers could contribute a couple of grand
each, buy up the AW stock and take control of the
corp. Then you all can bitch, whine and complain
about who is going to play boss this week. But
then again, youi all might be able to force the
company personel to get off their duffs and get
what you want done, done.

If any of your objects have a black box or square around them it is
because your cache has been clobbered... Simply exit your aw browser, and
go to where your ActiveWorld cache is located and delete it.

Given that the USA is one country from sea to shining sea, and Europe is a multitude of countries border to
border, it would make sense that Europeans would speak more than one. But that does not make us inferior. It
just makes us a nation of one language. Although I only speak english, many Americans speak more than one
language (Spanish, or variation, being the most popular). As for accents, most of us don't have a problem,
although we might ask one to repeat themselves once in a while, after a short time our ears become accustom to
the accent and then have no difficulty understanding .

One other thing.&nbsp; Make sure that everything is removed from your temp
directory.&nbsp; It is located at c:\windows\temp.&nbsp; Windows has a
bad habit of reusing temp files if it finds them.&nbsp; Thus if you have
an error condition and whatever program you were using created a temp file,
which almost all of them do, then, when windows restarts, it will see those
temp files and attempt to reuse them.&nbsp; Thus recreating the error condition.
<p>Hope this helps,

It would really be a nice thing if they made just the new objects and textures

new textures.zip etc.&nbsp; As it is, we have to download each, one at

I have downloaded all of the textures, objects, seqs, and avatars that

download them at http://209.158.225.67. I tried to get all of the new
ones, however, I may have missed one or two. I will add to the zips as
time allows and I know there are newer aw items ready to download. If
you find any that need to be added, I would really appreciate being

Too lame to write a subject

Jun 21, 2000, 8:43pm
May I recommend a couple of ideas. First of all, go to c:\windows\temp. if
there are ANY files and/or folders in the temp folder, delete them.
Second, run scandisk with auto repair option selected. After rebooting, go
to the microsoft.com site and do a search on 'regclean'. Download it and
run it.. Regclean cleans up the registry.

That should fix you up some.

Hope that helps.

Gads, wouldn't it be easier to simply put each browser into its own folder,
then put a shortcut on the desktop and rename it to whatever the universe is

It works for me.
