I've found people leaving tip jars at clubs and it's a hassle to keep cleaning them up.
This script adds less sim loading than the popular 3 script tip jar since each script adds sim load.

This script is designed to be used in the one prim tip jar, however it can be used in more complex ones.

The big differance is that the script dies if you are not in the sim.

string m_ownerName;
key m_ownerKey;

integer m_money;
integer m_DieTimer;

//set the floating text,
SetText(string PayeText){
string Text;
Text = m_ownerName + "'s Tip Jar.\n$";
Text += (string)m_money + "L Donated so far\n";
if (llStringLength(PayeText) >= 0){
Text += PayeText;
}//set Text
m_ownerKey = llGetOwner();
m_ownerName = llKey2Name(m_ownerKey);

// llTargetOmega(<0,0,0.075>,PI,0.05); //rotate if desired
llSetTimerEvent(53); //use odd numbers to prevent all scripts in sim from triggering at the same time
on_rez(integer RezNumber){
money(key id, integer amount)
m_money += amount;
SetText("$" + (string)amount + "L Was donated by "+(string)llKey2Name(id)+" last.");

llInstantMessage(id,"Thanks for the tip. :)");
llInstantMessage(m_ownerKey,(string)llKey2Name(id)+" payed $" + (string)amount + "L");
if (llKey2Name(m_ownerKey) == ""){ //he's not in this sim
if (m_DieTimer > 2 ) { //give him some time, just in case he crashed.
llDie();//he hasn't came back yet
m_DieTimer =0; //he's back
};//in sim

Interesting use of llKey2Name, I like it!

Just a tip:

llKey2Name can produce some unpredictable results immediately after an agent leaves a sim - especially if the agent has simply crossed to an adjacent sim.

While using llKey2Name to detect agent presence in the sim is probably fine for this tip jar script, I prefer the method below for better accuracy if you need to know immediately that the agent has left the sim:

if (llGetAgentInfo(m_ownerKey) == 0)
//m_ownerKey is not in the sim

A way to get rid of the issue of the glitchiness coudl also be to just set it to check every x seconds (say 180) and that way you would be less likely to run into the owner just leaving the sim issues.
