Slink has a page that does automatching on a great many skins. That should help you somewhat. https://slinkstyle.com/appliers_non-applier-matches/

ETA: Trust me, I do understand the frustration and sympathize!

Oh, I had forgotten all about that page -- side note, I should probably actually bookmark some of these links, duh.

Thanks so much !!!

Seriously Lil, if I can help, let me know.

Thanks - I remember going through the matching process with my system skin when I first got the feet, so once I reread the instructions, it shouldn't be that hard.

I have been back at work for an hour and a half and already feel like I need a vacation.

It's still 4 weeks until the next US holiday. Oh, and 16 de Septrembe is coming up next month -- Mexico Independence Day.  But August is bereft of celebrations. 

Does anyone know of a holiday in August somewhere around the world?

Yesterday was National Root Beer Float Day, and we missed it!

... cries her eyes out, then soaks them in a glass of root beer for two minutes before popping them back in.

Li'l gave you a list, but if that's not enough you can celebrate my 47th birthday, which happens this month. I don't celebrate it, but that doesn't mean the rest of the you can't. Just don't tell me about it.

Ugh. The hacked scammer accounts are out in force tonight. Catwa group got hit twice in the space of ten minutes, and three other groups I'm in got hit by the same person within seconds of each other. As much as I feel sorry for the people whose accounts are hacked to do this, they've only got themselves to blame for clicking that link and then actually logging into their SL account... on a website that's not even an SL one. More fool them for not taking a second to read and realise that Marketplace is NOT at cx dot altervista dot org ¬¬

There are so many warnings all over the internet about scammer methods and clicking links and opening attachments that I have little sympathy for folks anymore.  Even in SL, people are constantly warning others in groups and in stores and yet folks just keep falling for it.

Yeah it's been pretty bad the last couple of days. I've gotten to where I just block and move on.

On a more amusing note, I was feeling out of place so I switched to my "Gacha Money" shape. =~.^=

Yep. Usually, half a dozen people immediately respond with "Don't click!" (group chat lag permitting) but every now and then I still see some numpty saying "OMG, you saved me! I was about to log in!" (and being quite serious about it). I've even seen a couple of people say things like "Oh, I logged in. Should I not have done that?" And all of this within about a minute of the scam links being posted. It's just boggling how, with so many warnings around, people are so impulsive and careless.

A friend of mine, every bit as old as me, messaged me the other day and said "I can't believe, after 10 years, I was still stupid enough to click that link". Ummm...no comment?

Why are so many people shopping in their underwear? I'm not sure I should be letting you go to these places alone any more ...

Speaking of sudden topic changes, while heating up lunch just now a guy tried to tease me about my left overs for lunch.  He said he never ate leftovers because it was as good as the first time.   He told me this while opening his frozen dinner box.  When I pulled my turkey burger with fire roasted pablanos and grilled asparagus out of the microwave I told me he needed to find better quality starters.

Can you believe the audacity of them expecting me to actually do work at my job?? =~.~=

I've been so busy today this is the first moment I've been able to just stop and think.
