  1. While many of us are still recovering from the winter holidays, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and our shopping itch just won’t go away! Linden Lab is winding up for a Valentine’s Day inworld shopping event - and we’re now looking for Merchants who would like to participate. The Valentine’s Day edition of Shop & Hop will open on February 3rd and will run through February 17th. This is your opportunity to bring a ton of new customers to your brand, by offering some of your best items. We are looking for Merchants willing to offer a discount on some of their items and provide a small non-exclusive gift to shoppers. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out this form as soon as possible and no later than Monday, January 20th, 2020. We will contact you soon after that date if your application is accepted. We are excited to host this event and look forward to putting it together! Image by Fel Matias.
  2. Our “Made in Second Life” series continues with our first episode focusing on “Art Made in Second Life.” This episode spotlights Fiona Fei, an artist who has extended her canvas to Second Life. Fei, who has an MS in Visualization from Texas A&M University, uses SL to “share [her] thoughts, ideas, knowledge, and artistic vision in fantastic ways that is not possible in the real world.” Her work can currently be seen in the Shui Mo Gallery, a series of installations created in the style of Chinese ink brush painting, depicting a common theme or landscape seen in many traditional Chinese paintings. Shui Mo Gallery Explore the artwork of Resident FionaFei at the Shiu Mo Gallery. Shui Mo, meaning "ink" in Chinese, is a series of installations created in the style of Chinese ink brush painting, depicting a common theme or landscape seen in many traditional Chinese paintings. Visit in Second Life “As a Chinese American who immigrated from China at a young age, I created the Shui Mo series as a way of connecting with my ancestry and celebrate centuries of art from old masters who painted using traditional Chinese ink brush style,” says Fei. Shui Mo hovers over Dreams, a region dedicated to helping and supporting stroke survivors and people with autism by means of regular group meetings, classes, games, and creative building contests. The goal of the Shui Mo Gallery is to give the visitors and the Dreams community the feel of being fully immersed inside a 2D drawing as well as an escape from even ‘’virtual’' reality, where the 3D space melts away into the mind of the artist. “It is my hope that these artworks will look like 2D paintings upon first glance and surprise the viewer in seeing that they are actually sculptures,” she says. “When you first come into the gallery, you are about to step into a world of ink and become the art...or at least become immersed as a fellow piece of artwork."

  3. Microsoft is discontinuing support for Windows 7 on January 14th. This means that it will no longer get updates, including security patches. Therefore, running Windows 7 will become increasingly insecure as new vulnerabilities are discovered and not patched. Accordingly, Linden Lab is updating our system requirements to remove Windows 7 from the versions we support. This does not mean that Second Life will stop working on Windows 7 immediately; existing viewers, and possibly some new viewers, should run as well as they did before. However, we will not be testing any viewers on Windows 7, so it is likely that compatibility problems will develop and increase over time. In addition, we will not attempt to fix any problems which occur only on unsupported operating systems (if a bug is reported against an unsupported system, we usually try to reproduce it on one that is supported; if we can't, we don't investigate further or attempt to fix it). In order to keep your Second Life experience as reliable and secure as possible, we strongly recommend using only supported versions and keeping them updated with the latest vendor patches.
  4. Happy Tuesday, and Happy New Year! We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 8th at 14:00 SLT in our usual meeting place, and also to highlight one of our favorite new features we shipped to the marketplace just yesterday. Specifically: Search filters for limited quantity items and demos! Both of these features have been requested for a very long time by our community and we’re just tickled pink for them to be the first marketplace updates we deliver in the new year. We believe these features should make the marketplace more responsive and efficient across the board, and make searching more enjoyable for all. We've also added individual gifts received pages (similar to order invoices), so that the purchase notification at the top of each product listing can link to these for easier redelivery, where available. Cheers, and we’ll see you at Web User Group on Wednesday to talk about the rest of our 2020 slate!

  7. "The New Year is a painting not yet painted; a path not yet stepped on; a wing not yet taken off! Things haven’t happened as yet! Before the clock strikes twelve, remember that you are blessed with the ability to reshape your life! ―Mehmet Murat ildan" Details are on the Threads and Tuneage blog.

  9. "Look out the window on a really bad winters day and the only people you will see outside are dog walkers. That and crazy people. Us dog walkers are an insane type, we refuse to go out if something is needed for the dinner, telling others to 'just make do with whats in the fridge'. Then it comes time for the dog to get their walk and off we go, big coat on, rain hail or snow, off walking the dog. " Click here for details on the Just Stuff blog.
  10. "Currently open – for a while longer at least, given it commenced at the end of October 2019! – at La Galerie D’angle, curated by Mary Zimmer, is an exhibition by JanitaEduarda Arado. I confess that I’m not aware of being that familiar with JanitaEduarda’s work, but will say that this exhibition is a superb introduction. Comprising some 40 images, the pieces presented in it cover landscape, avatar and self-studies that are diverse and eye-catching. Throughout all of them as a rich understanding of colour, tone, depth of field / focus and – as is always important for me – narrative." The rest of the story is on Inara's blog.

  13. "Great Balls of Black Sunshine! Kitty, Duchess, Sugar and Sorchiee, collectively known as Team ACID, hit the scene to blot out the evils of reality! The image captures the mind-altering foursome at the peak of their trip to the outer realm. Duchess attempts to hail Dr. Leary on her coms to secure more supplies for the upcoming adventure as the remainder of the team dishes out doses of white lightning and liquid bombs to secure the platform. A beautiful purple haze fills the room as these angels in the sky regroup before their next meet up with Mighty Quinn and the Microdots…… Stay tuned… or turn on and drop out."

Moonshine gives me a much needed outlet for my super deep artsy weird side and i love them for it!. i wish i were i able to say i "planned for days and days" for all of my posts, but truth be told, i honestly think of 9/10 on the spot or the second i buy a certain thing and have a eureka moment because i know it goes with some other somethings buried deep within the fashion graveyard that is my inventory. at any rate, i hope you all enjoy this post...No matter how polished i become or how much i learn, my weirdness is eternal.
