Tip jar for the local grid "currency"

  • Keeps ID secure for both parties.  
  • But local currency may not be exchangeable for real money.

  • For Kitely Credits: More transfer cost than tip jar
  • For the function to handle this, see this page: llLoadURL

Sell videos, music mp3's. or take donations on the web

  • For stage performances--anything that can captured in video or audio
  • (music, musical videos, music-particle videos, stage performances, etc.)

Skip the tips, get sponsors

  • Entrepreneurs alert:  Potential advertising business here.
  • Coordinate ads at events with sales on Kitely Market.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
If you get an address like this: 
 hg.francogrid.org:80:Residence-09:/119/128/190     
paste it into the address bar of Firestorm, see if it takes you to the exact coordinates.
