    ( just because I can't help myself 😺 ) while near history is important, particularly named places in honour of early intrepid explorers who teleported at great risk and peril to themselves, the story of Belli goes way way back. A recent discovery of a forgery authentic scroll, found while ploughing the old cucumber fields Belliestateus Vaticanus [1:1] In the beginning when Patch created the heavens and the regions, [1:2] the regions was a formless void and blue wavy stuff covered the face of the deep, while a wind never swept over anything. [1:3] Then Patch said, "Let there be light"; and there was a not very good windlight. [1:4] And Patch saw that the windlight was not very good; and called in Rider who went OMG! and made a more awesome one. [1:5] Patch called the awesome windlight Day and kinda night, and the not very good one Rider hid way down in the dialogs somewhere and never called it anything. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. [1:6] And Patch said, "Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." [1:7] So Patch made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. [1:8] Patch called the dome Sky, but Sky said uhh! uh! not to name after me. And Patch said pleeaaasssee! go on! and Sky went oh! ok then. And so there was evening and there was morning, the second day. [1:9] And Patch said, "Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the regions terrain appear." And it was so. [1:10] Patch called the dry terrain Terrain, and the waters that were gathered together he couldn't think of a name so they just called Water. And Patch went oh! well and that was good enough. [1:11] Then Patch said, "Let the terrains get painted to look like grass and sand and brown rocky-ish stuff. And it was so. [1:12] The painted terrains kinda looked like vegetation: pretendy grass and stuffs. And Patch saw that it was good enough as well [1:13] And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. [1:14] And Patch said, "Let there be windlights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, [1:15] and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the terrains." And it was so. Because Rider had already made them [1:16] Patch tried to make two great lights - the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night - and the stars. [1:17] Patch tried to set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the terrains and waters, [1:18] to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And Rider went "Oh! man. We gunna be here forever at this rate" and done it himself. Patch saw that it was way good and patted Rider on his back. [1:19] And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. [1:20] And Patch said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky." [1:21] "And the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind." And Ebbe coughed discreetly, and Patch went "Oh! thats right. Let there be Moles" [1:22] Patch blessed the Moles, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the water with houseboats, and let traditional houses multiply on the terrains." And Ebbe went: "Yeah!" [1:23] And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. [1:24] And Patch said, "Let the terrains bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind." [1:25] And the Moles went: "I think he means like roads and stuff" and they made it so. And Patch saw that it was good and said awesome sauce! [1:26] Then Patch said, "Let us make avatars in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the houseboats of the water, and over the traditional houses, and the pickles." [1:27] And Grumpity went: "Umm! There's a zillion avatars pressing F5 and they already look like us kinda sorta except for the F5 imprinted on their fingers and foreheads." [1:28] So Patch blessed them F5 avatars, because Patch didn't want Ebbe to cough all over him again. And Patch said to them "You can't be fruitful and multiply, because we haven't got enough homes at the moment. So just one each ok ?" And the avatars never said anything. Just keep refreshing the F5 to get any home, nevermind more than one. [1:29] Patch said, "See, I have given you a home and like trees and rocks and roads and stuff, upon the face of all the regions but you have to bring own food because we haven't got enough LI to grow anything other than trees and hedges and grass and flowers." [1:30] And to every avatar what never got a home yet, Patch said "Let there be pickles!" and the Moles went "What!" and made a pub instead. And it was so. [1:31] Patch saw everything that the Moles had made, and indeed, it was very good [1:32] And there was evening and there was morning, and that was the sixth day. [1:33] On the seventh day Patch fell asleep because puffed out. And the Moles all went "Awwww!" tucked him under a warm blankey with his teddy bear, and just carried on. [1:34] And there was evening and there was morning, and that was the seventh day. [1:35] On the eighth day Patch arose and said: "Let us call this place Eden". And the Moles went "Sorry boss! that name already been used. So we have called it Bellibutton." And Patch said "Reaally! Oh! well!" [1:36] These are the generations of the waters and terrains and when they were created. In the days that Patch made the regions what are known as the Bellibutton of Second Life

    Playing around to see what interesting effects I could get with Windlight and projected lighting. This Torley preset ([TOR] SPECIAL - Threshold) looked amazing with the pink and teal projected lighting from one of the Weekend Ruiner photobooths. These two images are completely un-edited, except for cropping and resizing:

    I honestly didn't even do the auto-refresh. I just happened to be awake at 0600 in California, checked at the top of the hour, no luck. Then I checked again at 0630 and BOOM! Got lucky with my first traditional home in Sweetmarsh. Not on the canal, but on the top of a lil hill.

    We're trying to spread them out, and add a touch of random to them for sure. 😊

    TY for replies. No winding stairs! That would be too much LI. It would also has to be a door, an opening in the floor, and so on. No, I am sitting in the chair now, @Leora Jacobus. Like you do. I need a carpet for comfort and decor. I will try to put a teleport script in 2 carpets. Maybe that can work. For now, it is sit-in-the-chair! @RaeLeeH, I like it, I have thought about Queen Anne style. With @Blush Bravins wrap around porch, I think it's a bit like this: I work on it in a sandbox now. My work process is looking at it and think it's close enough. The left is work in progress. The right is how it was. Adding a bit more decor. The weather-vane is only 1 LI and free! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/HVW-Wind-vane-ship-shape/15237414 The new windows have better LOD. I am using myself in the tower as size model. Oversized chair too.

    There isn't, but there's a general rule against abusing region resources. However, it's unlikely that in the normal course of events you'd do that, unless you're planning on keeping a menagerie of breedable critters or something similar.

    I don't know if he looks at name mentions, but I would like to thank @Patch Linden for his evident effort to spread releases as far, and as randomly, across LL's workday as he can. It really does seem to be pulling in some of the more chronically homeless of our new neighbors!

    I am completely and utterly mystified by the absence of any movement from LL on this. The blog post announcing Tilia hasn't been updated since before the Town Hall, and (get this!) STILL SAYS THAT ALL SL RESIDENTS WILL NEED TO AGREE TO THE TILIA TOS!!!! The FAQ to which the blog post links has not been changed at all since it was first posted. The "Official" Tilia Forum thread has been locked, with the result that we can't bump it up, and is currently slowing sinking to the bottom of the second page of this forum. AND it's a disorganized mess. NO official transcript of the Town Hall has yet appeared, that I have seen. The only comprehensive and well-organized account of what this is all about is Inara's (my god, she deserves a lifetime service award) And, clearly, no one has thought to reach out at all to SL's international community. Seriously, WTF? Even I could write up a comprehensive, simple, and brief communication in a couple of hours or less (and all for the low low price of a Linden Home houseboat!), but they haven't been able to take the time to even update their own official blog announcement???? I despair.

    This morning's release was around 9:30 EST, and that's hardly LL's headquarters time zone. That's 6:30 PCT and I daresay most Lindens were still asleep. Most of the east coast, however, was awake. What strangle complaints you make, Alyce. It's almost as if you are intentionally trying to create things to make yourself unhappy.

    Ok this post frankly made my day, put a huge smile on my face and I laughed right out loud at a handful of them! At the same time, there's some frightening reality in there too! 😂 Hmmm, Abnor's potato salad is missing though... 😮

    I am inspired by @Lukas Thetanand tried to build my own tower. It is a start. I have bought the windows and roof, obviously. I am not that good to build. I will mesh the rest, but I am not sure about the windows. I thought it was original, to have them to the floor, maybe I should have a more traditional look. Maybe the tower is too wide. It is 5 x 5 m. I will experiment with smaller, maybe 4,4 or 4 m? It is plenty room inside for a chair and a telescope. I don't need more furniture.

    Today was the day! Home alone for a couple of hours, so no interruptions...….and the perfect opportunity to see if my two laptops can support four girls in world...……. Anyway, after a slow start, and an update on my old laptop, I got the girls over to Charleston Heights beach, where we met up by the refreshments kiosk. After a few photos we decided it would be fun to do a Baywatch session there, and just before we went off, we dropped in at Blue Water Cove beach. It was early so not very busy, which was great. It takes a lot of concentration keeping four fidgety girls in line...….haha! This really is it.....I just can't keep adding family, so I'll stick with three sisters and cousin Skye...…….. it was a lot of fun today.

    it's been a while, so posting.. I went blonde because I love these braids, but it pokes through my (unadjustable) lil elfie ears, so blonde makes it less noticeable. LOGO used to have ears you could angle in and out, but now they don't. It sucks.

    I had a little chat with Djehan, the other day (in her HL group). Frankly, I have a hard time understanding how come she has to undergo so much ***** on this forum. None of the rude detractors here has ever made anything even as remotely beautiful as she has. None of you. Nary a one. She's truly amazing for keeping up with this abusive behavior alone. Anyway, I understood it's more of a USA regulators thing, and has far less to do with Linden. But I'll leave that for official spokespeople to talk about, if they so desire. It's good, at least, Djehan isn't here to witness all the abuse levied at her.

    Don't give up! It will happen. Imma tell you a funny story. So I played catch and release for too long with the first release. Not even knowing/remembering about the mailbox to change the house. Idiotic in retrospect, but whatever. So I had been trying, trying, trying. Like literally walking around like the Seinfeld episode muttering, "No soup for you" Those of you that have seen Seinfield will get it. Then I see we were restricted to the number of times we could TRY for soup. LOL I was ticked. Im like what in the control freak is going on here. So at 5:05pm CST, a time I KNOW I have not a doo doos chance of getting a house with allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the restrictions/limited homes and stuff. I logged in saw a house, was thinking Im not even sure why Im clicking this because I know its going to be gone. And guess what??? I got a frigging houseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! So all that said is, do not give up hope. It is totally possible. Two days later my daughter for a beautiful plot/spot that was abandoned on Ketran. Keep trying. It's worth it.
