  1. I checked and the only way to get Snow Leopard is to buy it on disk and have it mailed to me. I have no idea why Apple won't sell it as a download, but damn, that's stupid. Looks like no SL for my trip. Think I'll just save up my pennies and buy a Chromebook. **bleep** Apple if that's their attitude.
  2. I'm going to be traveling soon. My travel computer is an older MacBook. I used to be able to load and run Second Life on it, but the latest versions won't run at all on it. Is there some version of Second Life or alternative viewer that's compatible with old MacBooks that still works (and if so, where can I get it?) or am I fated to remain in real life as I sit in my sparse hotel room and drink whatever excuse for coffee they've got? Dammit, I've got villages to sack and plunder!

    GOR newbie

    I have to take exception to the previous post. The link it leads to says: The following is only applicable to what is called BTB (by the books) regions. There are other Gor regions, which are loosely based on the books and typically labeled “Gor evolved”. They really have nothing to do with Gor, but the label and are very focused on the combat aspect of the game. The fact is that Gor Evolved is more like reading a Gor novel than so-called by the book Gor because Gor is a violent world, and nothing much ever happens in By-the-Book Gor. Sure, there's tons of combat in Gor Evolved, but there's roleplay too. It's the "fun" Gor. I've got an introduction to Gor site set up on my web site, it has a lot of resources and information, I hope you will consider stopping by.
  5. One of the things that may make it difficult to define Gor on SL is the communal nature of the game. It was not created by a corporation. No individual made up the rules, not even John Norman. The rules evolved from the pure text Gorean RP that developed in HTML chatrooms prior to the advent of Second Life, but they were not set in stone and they have evolved a great deal, largely because, and this is the other thing that makes it difficult, people come to SL Gor from all over the place. It's not just a bunch of maledom/femsub types getting their freak on. (There are plenty of places in SL designed specifically for that.) There are hadcore lifestylers who imagine that they are BEING Goreans in SL just as they act Gorean in RL to the extent they can and see no difference between IC and OOC, there are roleplayers of various stripes who feel it's a fun,sexy adult game and have no interest in OOC relationships (my personal faction) and nothing more, and there are World of Warcraft types who enjoy raiding and the sexy slavegirl eye candy but are not all that interested in sexual RP, and even slavegirls who don't want to do sexual RP, and probably plenty of others. The reason you have conventions like "fade to black" for sex scenes and a huge schism between by the book and Gor Evolved players is that they have EVOLVED to handle the different interests of the different players. Gor is truly a microcosm, everything you could expect in a virtual world. It's hard to define for that reason.
  6. Great concept, I like it. I'll visit and maybe do an interview about it for my blog.
  7. Yes, it's so wrong that other people have different fantasies than yours. Tell me, would you censor "50 Shades of Gray" as well? What are you even doing on Second Life?
