  1. When you run into a Stranger who seems to know more about you than they should, and you wonder whose Alt they are.
  2. I'm a homeowner, but MOST of what I spend is on getting outfits ready for events at clubs that I either visit or work at. In RL, you can write off clothing that you buy for work as an Expense on your taxes - not so in SL...... When you Host or DJ (or Dance for that matter) you wind up having to keep your avatar updated and your wardrobe in a constant state of flux. If you host or DJ at fetish clubs, that can be VERY interesting :-) Disclosure; that's no a sacrifice for me. I was blessed with a broad kinky streak and would probably buy most of that anyway.....
  3. Sadly, we'e lost iOS access to SL from iPhones :-( I work a wonky 3rd-shift myself and it was wonderful to at least be able to log on during lunch and say hello to my Partner. I'll say this as a credit to all of *you*; I enjoy talking to you on the Forum just about as much (if not more at times) than in SL.
  4. "Real love" is whatever is meaningful to those involved. I love my Partner, but she's a LONG way from me - so we talk in SL every night and after a decade, the affection is sort of there to stay. I know a polyamorous family that seems to genuinely love one another...all three of them. SL is home to many facets of "reality" that are unfettered by traditional "Real Life" constraints; how can love be any less-mundane here?
  5. Aislin, I SO feel your pain! A few years back a stalker ran me completely off my 2005 Original Avatar. LL told me (on my Original) repeatedly that changing the Presence system would cause all kind of issues, inconvenience sellers, do bad things to Vendor systems, cause Dogs and Cats to have "relations" and generally create issues. So I gave up all that Inventory. Not a good solution. Hopefully things or regimes change and solve this.
  6. I'm really glad you specified......I was JUST about to make an intimate personal post and make someone's day....
  7. I don't think they told the angry, intimidating people where it moved too...... ..that worked with one of my ex's....
  8. TBH, I have not had any success in getting Ll to deal with stalkers. They decline to give a true "hide global Presence" tool and policing alt accounts seems to be pretty much impossible. That leaves; "make a new alt and sacrifice your existing inventory" as an option - which reeks. What stalkers think they are..... What the really are....
  9. Once, my laptop crashed to its final reward...it was the middle of the night and I had to wait for Bestbuy to open.....
  10. I've known people whose Alts role-play together...like....ONLY together. I observe from afar on those occasions.....
  11. Some minor tweaks :-) Changed skin appliers. Out hunting for music stream providers !
  12. Did you try logging to different Region? When I can't get on at my home location, I set "Refugio" (On my Original I worked there at the Barbie Club.....don't ask.....) as the Region and log on again. That gets me on as my home-region seems to go wobbly a lot.
  13. Does the "Friday" dance..... well, its not much of a dance......
  14. I'm binge-watching "Glitch" currently :-) Glitch Wiki
  15. This question pops up periodically... What is the "least troublesome" PC security software when it comes to conflicts with the Second Life viewer? Is something dramatically better than others? "Troublesome" in the sense of "does not prevent SL from running correctly".....
  16. Over-arching plots have been a mixed-bag of late in SL RP. I've seen the following play out in several sims in the last two years; (1)..Moderators roll out a simwide roleplay (2)..Player clique screams "Don't tell us what to do you Fascists!" (3)..Drama That said, I like Asphyxiation Point currently :-)
  17. I feel awful for saying this - but I've caught myself looking at Rezz-Dates a lot in the past year before interacting with people.
  18. I'm not sure what my Cat calls me, but he does this a lot...... Should I worry?
  19. On this day in 1934, a massive storm sends millions of tons of topsoil flying from across the parched Great Plains region of the United States as far east as New York, Boston and Atlanta. At the time the Great Plains were settled in the mid-1800s, the land was covered by prairie grass, which held moisture in the earth and kept most of the soil from blowing away even during dry spells. By the early 20th century, however, farmers had plowed under much of the grass to create fields. The U.S. entry into World War I in 1917 caused a great need for wheat, and farms began to push their fields to the limit, plowing under more and more grassland with the newly invented tractor. The plowing continued after the war, when the introduction of even more powerful gasoline tractors sped up the process. During the 1920s, wheat production increased by 300 percent, causing a glut in the market by 1931. That year, a severe drought spread across the region. As crops died, wind began to carry dust from the over-plowed and over-grazed lands. The number of dust storms reported jumped from 14 in 1932 to 28 in 1933. The following year, the storms decreased in frequency but increased in intensity, culminating in the most severe storm yet in May 1934. Over a period of two days, high-level winds caught and carried some 350 million tons of silt all the way from the northern Great Plains to the eastern seaboard. According to The New York Times, dust “lodged itself in the eyes and throats of weeping and coughing New Yorkers,” and even ships some 300 miles offshore saw dust collect on their decks. The dust storms forced thousands of families from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico to uproot and migrate to California, where they were derisively known as “Okies”–no matter which state they were from. These transplants found life out West not much easier than what they had left, as work was scarce and pay meager during the worst years of the Great Depression. Based on my grandparents descriptions, I'm pretty sure it was not like this...
  20. On a related note - I tried one of the "other" SL-similar grids once and was back here within a week. If I'm going to see people dressed like the cast of Jersey Shore with "male attachments" on their foreheads, I want them to at least be MESH forehead-"male attachments"...
  21. I suppose that "I agree -and- disagree" So far as "stuff" is concerned; we do have better stuff.... So far as "what is Second Life; that's still widely diverse; ~For people who want to make stuff; if they have the technical skills - they can ~For people looking for sex; they still can (and be obnoxious about it) ~For people looking to network for RL relationships, they still can (and I wish them luck; they'll need it) ~For people looking to Roleplay - they still can (altho the RP presence is dwindling for various reasons) ~For people looking to club - Definitely possible Is it a Game or a World? The answer is "yes" depending on who you talk to. As in Real Life; perception is everything :-)
