Examples

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        llMinEventDelay(5.0);
    }
    touch(integer detected)
    {
        llSay(0, "Touched.");//Without the event delay set touch would cause the screen to fill 
                             //with the word "Touched" in a split second if you held the mouse button down.
    }
}

Where as, if in one object you place this script (for the sake of fun call the object "Sandy Powell"). -

default
{
    touch(integer detected)
    {
        llSay(0, "Can you hear me mother?"); //Northern English accent. Catch phase of Sandy Powell (comedian).
    }
}

and this in another object called "Mother" -

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        llMinEventDelay(5.0);
        llListen(0, "Sandy Powell", "", "");
    }
    listen(integer chan, string name, key id, string msg)
    {
        llSay(0, "Eh?");
    }
}

the result in chat is as follows -

[12:51] Sandy Powell: Can you hear me mother? [12:51] Mother: Eh? [12:51] Sandy Powell: Can you hear me mother? [12:51] Sandy Powell: Can you hear me mother?

[12:52] Mother: Eh?

and no more events are triggered. This is an example of lost transferred info because of llMinEventDelay so be careful with it.
