  1. One more thing. It's great to see male-focussed content. Understandably, most is female orientated so it's great to have help directed at men.
  2. Hello Skell, Apologies for not replying sooner. I just wanted to say thanks for going to the trouble of compiling this extraordinarily comprehensive and understandable post. It's helping me a lot and I know it will be helping others. When I first posted my question, I thought I might get a reply or two but the discussion has been quite extensive and I'm reassured that it wasn't just me who was confused. I'm also delighted that it prompted so many interesting and helpful comments. Thanks to everyone. Aristotle x (RL: Brian Smith, Stamford, UK.)
  3. The first two replies to my question (by TDD and Natales) were helpful when I first read them, but my understanding was very poor. I'm finding that, as my knowledge grows, they make more sense. For example, I've just noticed that Natales did explain BOM and SSB. It's just that they didn't make sense when I first read them. This time round, they made much more sense. I've a long way to go but I'm getting there with your help, everyone. Looking at SL history, is this summary about right? :- 1. There's the classic avatar, then there's Mesh, then onion skins and then Bento . . . and
  4. Wow! Thanks Marianne. It just shows how confusing it all is. I could have sworn I'd bought a Mesh body (even though I didn't know exactly what one of those is). I'm getting clearer in my mind. It's interesting that I do have Mesh clothes but not a mesh body. I had to wear an alpha layer because skin was showing through the clothes. I assumed that was the classic avatar which (I think) we all still have. Thanks to Natales and her excellent blog page, I now see what the icons and boxes mean in the inventory. It's all a learning adventure!
  5. Thanks to you all, again. I'm in a situation like many I suspect. I love SL but my RL wife simply doesn't get it and sees any time I spend inworld as a waste of time. Ah me! So my exploration of Mesh is proceeding extremely slowly. But I'm grateful to you all. I'm gradually getting my head round the concepts. One (probably silly) question: what does BoM mean? In fact, I know it means "Baked on Mesh" thanks to Natales, but I actually don't know what "MESH" is exactly nor what baking on means. And then there's BENTO. This will probably make you all shake your heads in despair and
  6. Thank you, Nalates Urriah, for the link to your "Things and Stuff". It's very useful and full of information. Looking back, I must have joined fairly early on, but I don't remember Ruth and Roth. I do remember a lot of free clothes etc. some of which referred to the "boy next door" and the "girl next door" as well as some other characters. Perhaps these followed on from Ruth and Roth?
  7. Hello everyone. A million thanks to you all for your comments. I'm going to go through everything and hopefully become a bit more competent. I'm grateful to you all. I'll report back on my progress soon. Best wishes everyone and stay safe IRL.
  8. I'm 12 years and 8 months old in SL so you'd think I'd be an expert by now. I'm not. To be honest, I'm still a bit of a newbie. I'm a regular but infrequent visitor so I don't get time to immerse myself. I just love to pop in and dance, or wander through a beautiful sim, or ride a tram in a steampunk world. It's a bit of escapism for me. That's not to say I take SL lightly. Back in 2007, it seemed to have limitless possibilities. And in 2009, I jointly ran In-service training courses for UK teachers - in Second Life! Instead of travelling to the professional development centre, they joine
