(This fake crying works real well) Tsstsst kids, if you start fighting over the blankets, Mummy's gonna get angry! :smileytongue: Hey! Dee gave me the blanket to wipe the milk off my glasses! Lia, when did you start drinking milk from a bottle? Okay, who's got the gin? I can't see a thing.
  3. Mmmm, "Under the Sea" has me thinking of taking up the steel drum. Wonderful music, Dillon.
  4. Here’s to the Crazy One. The misfit. The rebel. The troublemaker. The round peg in the square hole. The One Who Saw Things Differently. He wasn't fond of rules. And he had no respect for the status quo. You can quote him, disagree with him, glorify or vilify him. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore him. Because he changed things. He pushed the human race forward. And while some may have seen him as the crazy one, we saw genius. Because the man who was crazy enough to think he could change the world... ...was the one who did. Thank you, Mr. Jobs.

Dave #11 has taken up residence in a Japanese city park where he's been eating hapless children. Dave #3 still lives in my basement, playing SL all day. He only comes up to empty the pantry and complain about my cooking. How are you, Dee?!
  7. Hi, Kids! Paris and LadySue, welcome to the madhouse. Dillon, could it be you're not in the nursery because you're too hot to handle?

I would be honoured if you would take a little time to complete a survey I am using for data in an article I'm writing on "multiracial indentity" in Second Life. The only pre-requisite is that you consider yourself of multiracial descent and (of course) participate in Second Life. The link follows (with addtional instructions and privacy information), and while I am not currently offering any perks for your participation (as the link has been active for quite some time now, and I am wrapping the survey since my article deadline is due at
  9. Jo Yardley wrote: I like the idea. There aren't many realistic 1950s (roleplay) sims out there as far as I know and it wouldn't be a LOT of work to set it up. Mostly desert, nice 50s Diner in the middle with a few shops and apartments, down the road a military base... and in the mountains.... well just don't go there at night. Yep, that could be awesome. Put a big amazing flying saucer in the sky and you're on your way. Even if the roleplay doesn't attract a crowd, you could still have lots of fun with the 50s theme, dancing to Eddie Cochran by the jukebox with a sailor Jo, my space

Again it all sounds positive and he seems to know what he is talking about and what is happening. Especially this bit; Over the next few months (with testing most likely starting in December), we will be rolling out a series of more advanced features. These will make the creation of artificial life and artificial people much smoother. For starters, we'll unveil a new, robust pathfinding system that will allow objects to intelligently navigate aro
  11. Okay, now you're both being rude and obnoxious. Get a room, you two!

  13. Stella Carver wrote: See, this is why I kept my answer in a more general frame. Once people who know the "rules" start breaking them down I get a little squicked out. I'm not judging it, that's just my visceral reation. Stella, as someone who feels "born" into an atypical bent, I also get squicked out by rules. I find it interesting that some masters and mistresses will say there are rules, but don't know who wrote them. How's that for being in control? Now that I think about it, I'm fond of the golden rule, but don't know who wrote that either. Oops! ;-)

  15. I've never been a fan of "I love you"s. I didn't hear them around the house growing up. I didn't need to. They were in evidence everywhere. I like it that way. There eventually comes a time when you want to but a bow on it, but make sure there's something inside the box before you do.
  16. Josh Susanto wrote: Not that I don't think ralph isn't ultimately full of beans in the final analysis, but I think one of his main points has probably been roundly misunderstood by the lot of you. His complaint about the abundance of cheap stuff is not specifically about how much of it is sold, but about how much of it is rezzed and remains rezzed, including free copies. If I understand him correctly, what he seems to be trying to say is that the almost automatic proliferation of copymods, facilitated by the fact that everyone's first copy is cheap, fills in space that people don't bothe
  17. Medhue Simoni wrote: I would give all those corporate figures little value. I'm not talking the SL figures. It's the SL figures that refute the OP's contention, that's enough for me. We can wonder what IS causing the stagnation of SL, but cheap goods, if you believe the SL numbers, are NOT the cause.
  18. Chelsea Malibu wrote: The statement SL is boring is not a fact, it's a opinion and as such, 'calling my bs' does not quite fit here. However, you can clearly disagree with my opinion. What has bee reported is that 85% of all new users will quit by the end of 12 months. They have a survey they used to ask when people deleted their account and among them where questions about what people wanted in SL. Many said they did not feel this was a game and that their was no "achievement based" systems. I have invited dozens to come play with me in WoW and of them, none have come back to SL (ce
  19. It's zooming right along for me Chelsea. There was a forum glitch a few days ago that seemed to be related to the path from SL some of us, as not everybody reported seeing the problem. Hopefully someone will blow the lint out of whatever pipe connects you to the forum!
  20. ralph Alderton wrote: @Madelaine, This problem, the SUPERABUNDANCE of dross, has existed for several years and now is reaching fantastic proportions. Perhaps, Madelaine, you should ask yourself why Secondlife is not growing ? Why retention rates of new users are so poor ? Why is the grid getting smaller ? 650 sims lost last year There are a number of reasons for this and one of them is the SUPERABUNDANCE of dross, 10L$ poor quality products at the marketplace. If Secondlife doesn't look good, how will it attract and retain new and existing users ? I see little evidence that anythi
  21. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Second Life economy has been working more or less the same way since the start, with people making stuff of various quality at various prices, including free. Why is this a problem now?

My tattoos or the pattern on clothing is blurry, so i press Ctrl-Alt -r and everything instantly comes into sharp focus but then in a few seconds everything becomes blurry & I get this kinduv "planet of the apes" look, then everything comes back into focus except the stuff that was blurry to begin with.

Robeyn, I don't think there are any experts on "how this works". What you want is someone who'll take the time to learn "how you work" while you do the same for them. As in any relationship, that requires good communication, both ways, from day one. Welcome to the forum... and good luck!

Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn't know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. http://www.ted.com/talks/louie_schwartzberg_the_hidd
