Just Ignore and let this one die

Recommended Posts

One of my RL friends got divorced a couple years ago, from a fella who was alcoholic. She was surprised to learn that I knew he was an alcoholic long before the divorce, as he'd had alcohol on his breath when painting my barn (his profession).

I visited with her a couple days ago, where she updated me on her love life and how her ex still continually peeves her. And, to top it all off, his birthday is coming and she feels compelled to give him gifts, if only to keep up the facade for the children (youngest in high school).

I suggested she give him a case of these...

She chuckled, but she's such a chicken. I imagine he'll be getting socks.

Hey there - just wanted to give y'all a head's up that an "Alt Party" is being planned for the Hangout.  Here's the blurb from Ghosty Kips:

  • I am in the planning stages for a Cartel alt party! What's an alt party, you ask? A party for our alts! Guessing who is who is only half the fun - but there's some planning that goes into making a successful alt party work. Details are forthcoming, but expect an "official" announcement in a week or so. Meanwhile, dust off your alter egos (or your alter ego's alter egos) and make them "party presentable!"

Hmm, none of my alts are "party presentable".  I never take them out anywhere.  Heck, most of them are still in one of the starter avs.

I don't even know anyone anymore other than a handful of oldbies. Heck, I'm not even in the group and haven't been in ages. Everyone is an alt to me at this point.

Hi, folks -- I don't know if you remember me from the early part of this century (not that I was around that much).  I just got this account reactivated after I don't know how many years. I had even forgotten I ever got this name, but I was looking through the archives, and on this page from Feb 2010

    http://forums-archive.secondlife.com/327/85/252954/4127.html

Maureen said, "Just checked, and 626 avatars have posted to this Thread" and in the list of names, I said hey! that's me!

I also found (in the forum archives) this picture of me, which Feline took at a Halloween party. (Check out those boots, eh?)

So I got the account reactivated and it's so nice to have a last name again.  Now I have to get up-to-date. I already know which mesh body I'm going to get.

Anway, I have to run home now in RL because it's just starting to snow, and it's supposed to get heavy, baby.

Thanks for the photo, @LittleMe Jewell !

 

So... after getting my old account reactivated, I logged in and started taking inventory.  I found myself standing on a lawn in a peaceful, nice sim where they allow anyone to "set home here" -- and that was a nice thing to still find working. I kind of expected to find myself looking like a cute tomboy, but instead I was wearing this dress that belled out like a ballroom gown, but was made to look as though I lived in a magical forest.

... and that is all the clothes I own! I didn't have the Punisher costume, or any of the other pieces I remember. Just this magical woodland lady dress (and I don't know why), and a set of fuschia lingerie that I never unpacked. Nothing else.  I still had all my skins and shapes and hair, though.

I don't mind losing it all my clothes.  I'm going to have to get a mesh body and clothes for that. Besides, I can't be sure I didn't delete my inventory myself, as odd as that would be.

But the real blast from the past came as I went through my skins, trying them on, when I saw a skin folder named DUTCH TOUCH, and I thought what kind of name is that for-- OHHHHHH!  It used to be one of my favorite skin shops, and in a flash I could even see the store in my mind's eye.  Now the store is only on the Marketplace. The ones I have are still such nice skins.

And then I was done taking inventory, completely done.  Now I get to start all over, almost like a newbie.

There have been cases where LL reactivated an account, and the user discovered problems/missing inventory/etc.  I would file another support case.  It's not a sure thing, but LL might be able to get more of your Stuff back.

Definitely a big "might".  They even state so in the Knowledgebase:

Thanks, @LittleMe Jewell and @Lindal Kidd -- I think I'm going to let it go. It's pretty nice to be starting off again from almost zero, like a newbie. Everything I had was system clothes. I hadn't even gotten as far as mesh clothes in my old life. Besides, in the past my inventory overwhelmed me. This time I'm going to try to be less of an accumulator and more of a picky shopper.

On the other hand, your posts do make me feel like my inventory evaporated... that I didn't delete it. That makes more sense.

This is just a ramble. You can ignore it and let this one die:

This morning I arrived at work at the same time as this guy who is an executive at another company in the same building. I don't see him very often, but until today each time I'd run into him was a day that was significant to him. The first time was his very first day, when he was new and enthusiastic. He told me (all excited) about this book he was working out of called "The First 90 Days" which is about how to start a new job. The next time I met him was his 30th day, and then his 60th day. He told me that the book said those were significant days. Then I didn't see him again until his one-year anniversary. Each time, I could see he would key into his memory of being new, so running into him was always a happy upbeat experience.

Today, though, was just a day, and I was feeling a little burned out myself. I could see he was feeling down, and it came out that he DRIVES for TWO HOURS to get to work every day. I exclaimed, "That's terrible!" and then of course felt stupid for blurting it until he agreed, saying, "Yeah, and when it rains, it's even slower." I didn't get the feeling that he was complaining really, or looking for pity or anything. He just wanted to say it to somebody.

It made me feel better about my commute, but I still feel kinda burned because we've been working a lot and are short-handed. But I have to say that getting back into Second Life is a really nice thing to happen at this time. This morning before I left for work I logged in, and it struck me there are real people in here. I was sitting on the floor in my kitchen, and felt like I was sitting in the center of the world. Yes, I have a RL social life, often too active, but SL is just a different dimension. So many places to go, and so easy to have nice hair.

If I drive for 2 hours, any direction, I either left the country, or drove my car into the North Sea...

Can't imagine having to drive 4 hours every day just to get to work and back. I drive 5 minutes to work, 6 if its rainy :)
