  1. Fibromyalgia is a b****h. Your post doesn't come across as self-pitying at all - it's important to be able to vent. Chronic illnesses in general are a horrible horrible horrible HORRIBLE things to be stuck with, especially as more often than not, they are all but invisible, and if you don't look ill, sometimes (often?) people have a hard time accepting you're ill. Anyway, sending you a million hugs, and wish I could help more...
  2. That looks fantastic! I love the scale of your textures - they look just right. So many builders use textures on a scale that, to me, is just too big, but this is great scaling.
  3. I was undecided about what model to use at first, but I finally made up my mind (for now). I'm still working on the interior, but I'm pretty happy with the outdoor part so far (though I have a few other landscaping arrangements that I want to try, eventually). Love the view for now...

  4. That little boat (on the lower LH side) is ADORABLE. (Love the flag, too...)
  5. Thank you!!! :-)
  6. Oh, what a wonderful atmosphere! Very inspiring! I loooove that red wood burning stove - would you mind sharing where it's from?
  7. when i used the auto refresh on Firefox, I could not get it to go lower than 116 seconds (so just under 2 minutes) - anything less than that and I'd hit the limit (no, I don't think it makes sense, but hey, it's what it was). On Chrome, I'm OK with 66 seconds. On both browsers, I made/make sure that when I first land on the page, I don't start the auto refresh until 10 minutes have passed. So for me, BIG difference.

    But isn't that (premiums not renewing) offset at least to some extent by people who went premium because they wanted a Bellisseria home (or even joined SL for that purpose)? I'm sure plenty of calculations and what if scenarios were drawn in countless meetings... (The geek in me would LOVE to see the spreadsheets. If spreadsheets there are.)
  9. After a release, it's worth staying on the page and refreshing - there may be abandons from people who caught a home in the new region and decide they don't like it, or who decide that they like it much better than their other home in a previously released region. Just throwing that out there...
  10. the release will happen as soon as we step away from the computer... 😉
  11. @Atina0 I meant posting to the thread... I should have been more specific.
  12. Camper just now... ah, @Atina0 beat me to it :-)
  13. Ooooh, that is a brilliant expression! I saw a Traditional at 06:08 and assumed it was yours, but I guess I was wrong.
  14. At the moment, the new homes are rarer than unicorn dust - micro releases are happening (usually Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays), but you pretty much need to be stalking the web page (F5, F5, F5, F5...on and on - or use an auto-refresh browser extension that does the F5ing for you) as it happens. Not ideal, but with each release, the pool of homes increase, and that in turns mean there's more movement (people abandoning their home to try for another one), so that there's more chance of getting a home outside of the release time. It's getting there.... :-)
  15. Boat floated by just now (00:40 SLT); first home I've seen in days - is it just me, or have things been unusually quiet on the home spotting front?.

    That's very cute, and a clever attempt at disguising the damage done to fish in fresh water pounds further inland... Bellisseria Environment Society should really do something!
  17. If you use Windows, you can have 2 additional clocks alongside the system clock with the local time (the one that usually live in the bottom right hand corner); you have to click the time to show the clocks, but it's useful anyway. (Hope I'm making sense, and that somebody might find the info useful?) So you can set one to SL time and have that available via one mouse click...
  18. Too true! (and I reckon my ratio - for those I see - is about the same)
  19. wow, can I have your computer? 😉 I only saw about two, maybe three... (It could be worse, I suppose.)
  20. I want a CAMPER! :-) well, technically, I have one, I just want a better location...
  21. Ooooh, that looks fantastic! And all that storage space, too... always so good to have 😉
  22. Yes, that was the one. (Best region name ever...)
  23. I have no way of knowing. It could be, or it could be a later abandon by somebody else somewhere else...
  24. Aaahh, thank you! Yeah, furnishing the trailer (when I get it) is going to be... interesting... I can always plonk the kitchen outside. No electricity, no problem. 😉
  25. I'll be abandoning a houseboat at 12:45 SLT. It's here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arrgh/38/240/22 Best of luck...
