  1. No pants has my neighbor Teleconferenced and careless My door is closed forever
  2. The ability to either summon Ninja Guardians or Protective Pirates whenever one feels their avatar has been griefed. OK, I know this would never be used for its stated purpose...... .....I just want to see that neverending “Pirates vs Ninjas” battle at Waterhead....
  3. “Previous experience herding cats will be considered an asset....”
  4. I have that little itch again, the one at the base of my scalp I discovered back in the 90’s. I thought I’d left it decades and an ocean away - but the scratchy little imp is back. The last time it popped up I was helping provide “humanitarian assistance” some ostensibly-civilized place where - if they didn’t like your gender, gender-identity, nationality or religion - your lights could be turned off suddenly and permanently. I’m sure they had reasons that made sense to them; I had my own for wanting to survive the trip. I’m pretty sure the Itch was my subconscious reminding me that
  5. I get annoyed when I go to a club and the DJ is non-stop bringing the whole CV-19 thing into Second Life. I’m considered an Essential Worker, meaning I have to go out in public daily and take my chances. SL is my little Reality Break and his constant Coronavirus dialogue and doomsaying were SERIOUSLY harshing my SL Buzz 🙂 So I turned off the SL music stream, turned on my favorite iTunes mix and took my SL back. Funny, I like this DJ better when I’m picking the tunes...... Can Mimes make it as DJs in SL ?
  6. I wish all you daredevils well and hope your relationships are long and happy ones 🙂
  7. This is tough advice, but in SL it might be sane advice. Don’t worry about people’s alts. Alts can be generated instantly and are ubiquitous. Trying to keep tabs on “who-is-who” can eat up time and make you crazy. I have been to that show and have the tee-shirt. If people treat you as you want to be treated, give of their time and make you happy; enjoy it. If someone is an alt-a-holic or is just distracted or disinterested, their presence will fall off and they will fall out of your life in favor of people who want to be there. Evaluate whether or not someone has
  8. Personally, I think the “saving” of Sl will be; (a) better business decisions by LL and (b) flattening the learning curve required for New Residents to get to the point where they can “mingle” confidently and make better use of the variety of content available. But if we MUST change SL to a musical-era format, my vote is for ABBA-Life.....
  9. Exactly. Clarity is important when dealing with topics that may be relatively new to the awareness of significant groups of people. That’s how we can avoid “arguments” where both sides are actually talking about two different subjects through sheer miscommunication.
  10. We are all on somebody’s Spectrum 🙂 What matters is whether or not you accept extrinsic definitions as boundaries.
  11. The following is based on my experience in large, purpose-made roleplay sims with specific themes, I generally did not RP outside the formal setting: My past experience with role playing and moderating roleplay has been this; we *all* knew we were there to act out out the parts of characters in a free form play - so we maintained a hard line between In Character and Out Of Character. There was no expectation that anyone’s character IN ANY WAY resembled the RL person or their personality. So, if the relationship was all IC (In character) then there was no pressure to disclose any
  12. Keep the positive energy flowing to me and my cohorts in Essential Manufacturing 🙂 If you can eat it, drink it or medical with it; we’re going to work 7 days a week to make it.
  13. Maybe in the Roleplay forum you’ll hit more people who are “into” the subject? Personally I use the old reliable /me and “ “ to denote In Character action. If I am in RP and need to say something Out Of Character I post it in (( )) That pretty much seems to keep the dialogue straight, so long as everyone involved takes turns and knows we were IN Roleplay. SL has this odd thing where people will just walk up outside the RP setting and start emoting at people who have no idea what’s up. I kinda scratch my head at that one as it’s more about confusion than a Live Action Role P
  14. Actually I did spend a *looong* time working for a company that does make toilet paper (among other things), but I moved on before the poo-poo hit the fan 🙂
  15. My Second Life Definition: A virtual world populated by Real People who are both empowered to remake themselves in the manner of their own choosing and to participate in a global tribe that has the same opportunity. My Second Life Experience: In Second Life I have a virtual body that has none of the Injuries or scars of my real one and which lets me be “just one of the Tribe”. I have amazing friends, a wonderful Partner of almost 15 RL years (on our Originals) and the chance to indulge both my creative sweet tooth and my strange sense of humor. I’ve also had stalkers, griefers a
  16. I absolutely do, in fact I’m probably more of a “people person” here than in RL. Meaning I’m more likely to just randomly talk to people. Also, I’ve been seriously into my SL Partner for about 15 years now......which kinda seems to indicate that “real feelings” are involved where I’m concerned 🙂 SL friendships have their ups and downs, just like RL. This is made more complicated in SL because in SL you sometimes encounter people who consider you “just an NPC in their personal Game”......but frankly, RL has no shortage of those..... I value and love my SL friends for many reasons
  17. Ardy, the control room I run looks like a refugee from the Expanse already.......so it might not be a stretch ...altho some days Its the “Out-of-Control Room”
  18. Thank you Beth 🙂. I’m pretty sure the Big Auto Makers and such are curtailed, but our sector is headed straight to mars. We’re feeling the pinch as odd things run out, but maybe this is what brings about the Paperless Office for real. We’re so automated that everyone is an Isolated Worker on a normal day, so probably the only hazardous part is the commute here 🙂 Many, many thanks to you and your Sister-in-Law as well. I think you have it a bit harder than me 🙂
  19. So I work in a “Critical Industry”, meaning that as the government advises people to stay home - *we* are ramping up to 7-day weeks 🙂 This is not a commentary on our schedule 🙂 What entertained me tonight was how much joy an act of minor insubordination brought the workforce.... So as soon as I got here, I found out that we had a new shortage. We already got through “Medical Masks”, “Exam gloves” and Printer Toner....but this one had people stressing; we were out of the free coffee for the lunchroom. Evidently, the coffee service stopped along with everything else and
  20. I tossed a giant potato in the Insta Pot, “baked” it and then it made an exit under a yummy blanket of Salsa, taco meat & shredded cheese! This is much prettier than mine; This is about two meals for my way-of-eating, three if I just let myself SMELL it and gain weight when it first comes up.
  21. I’m not especially scared. I take precautions because we live an an era of “elevated risk”, but I’ve had practice doing that. Mainly I’m hopeful that this event - unfortunate as it is - might nudge us a bit closer to getting our mutual act together. The illusion that “things like that don’t happen here” has been pierced, so maybe that can lead toward a change in how we deal with Big Problems and also each other. Because if we can’t, our odds in the evolutionary lottery only get worse.
  22. My SL needs a lil’ more beautifying than Scylla’s does........ I’m “beautify-challlenged.....” .....and who is that creepy dude back there in the shadows?
