  1. Whilst it muttered, "brain the size of a planet and all they ask me to do is stuff corks in, Oh! I'm so depressed. Life, don't talk to me about life!

  3. Daria's Afterthoughts and Wikiality Enjoy!
  4. Omg what was that tough girls name that got banned?She was always calling her parents The Rents? hehehe She was a blast! Darlene maybe? Oo Daria! She's still around (just not as Daria) and doesn't go near the forums. We still hang out and she is just as funny as she ever was.
  5. Well, at least this thread has not been boring, it's already had more tangents than a trig lesson :matte-motes-smile:
  6. I think the title says it. I remember some brilliant, fascinating discussions here once. What do we have lately? - OMG I think voting things are unfair and my mummy agreed - Things are really laggy and I'm too stupid to realise my comp is basically a pile of outdated rubbish - What is the best graphics card because, really I want to boast about the one I am buying - I complained about something on marketplace and the seller has banned me. Long time since, when the general discussion forum was removed I was one of those campaiging it be brought back, with the benefit of hindsight - good call ;-)
  7. Laughs again. My point was, get some perspective. Really, look outside your own mind and get some. If that was cruel, or some sort of forum gang mentality, check my posts, I post rarely. Sometimes however, I do think it worth pointing out: get some perspective. Sims in SL are owned, so ultimately, and oh so unfairly ther owners can do whatever they want, their rules. Unfortunately, take it or leave it. A bit like life, when mummy is no longer your landlord. A bit like life when you don't have a mummy, a bit like life life when you are persecuted for being who you are: a fair individual. If you don't like a sim, or their competitions are biased, move on. Hopefully also you have finished writing your name on the foods in the fridge.
  8. OMG! Being gay in many countries can get you a prison term, people in some countries are starving to death, children are globally abused, women are globally subjugated and the weather is generally **bleep**. I think I am overreacting, I'm off to look up near earth asteroids.
  9. Yes, the SLRR (Second Life Rail Road). If you look for a sim named "Purple" you'll find that has a station at the end of the line, where the ferry goes over the sea.

  11. Yes! Our Highlands of Scotland sims of Inverness and Urquhart. As the introduction of the steam railways in the rl Highlands of Scotland were a very important part of opening up the Highlands to holidaymakers in the 19th century, I made sure we had our very own SL Highlands Railway, and had a lot of fun building it. The journey takes you around both sims and along the banks of Loch Ness. Brody Castle Railway Station
  12. Good of Lisa to offer, I would have too. Tip for the future, if it happens again. Show land borders permanently, then rezz it on the ground, fit it into the dimensions of your parcel, sit on it, then in EDIT type in the height, switch off show land borders - job done.
  13. Hi Drake - get in touch with Hippie Bowman. I believe he does classes. He's a great guy and if he can't help you, he'll definitely point you in the right direction. Another friend of mine, Doug Kaptane, used to do one-to-one tuition, so he's worth contacting too.

Magnus, are you really sure? there are rumours about me, that I always wear a towel with me. ..and talking about a Deep Thought. And Aphrenity even did't decline, he just ignores me...what a loss. Perhaps because I have no wedding dress. I always carrry a towel, and in case of hyperspatial travel: 5 pints of beer and a packet of peanuts.

You seem not only to be a misogynist, you are also a misanthrope. You're against "live and let live", against women - I never encountered anyone who is so superficial and ignorant. - - Absolutely seductive. - All your words seem so heartwarming and wonderful, that I can't imagine anymore to spend my time in sl somehow more beautiful, more comfortable, more interesting or wonderful than at your side. Moreover the consistency of your thoughts. - Simply gorgeous. - I fell in love with you, because you're such a good and lovely person. I do not care what you look like in rl or how old you are.. Will you marry me? Let's do it immediately. (And to all the other women here, who are also seduced by Aphrenity's personality... -I asked first. Please wait in the line.) I can ask LisaSpring to lend me the wedding dress, if she finds someone who is willing fulfilling her wishes. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Lifestyles-and-Relationships/Looking-for-Man-to-give-me-SL-Wedding/m-p/2877029#M31860 If he declines, please marry me!

  16. I suppose it depends why you are in SL, I'm here to be myself with anyone I meet and neither feel too ugly nor too old to withhold my rl pic. Perhaps that's because, at the massively ancient (mature) age of 49, I no longer make the kind of shallow judgements I did when in my late teens and twenties, a time when I also thought anyone over 35 was old. I'm more interested in personalities, intelligence, humour and even a bit of mature discussion: the kind of mature discussion that can be had with someone who has grown up enough to realise that looks aren't everything. Of course, being massively old my primary motivation for being in SL is not continual puppy dog enthusiasm that I may just have met an avi controlled by a Penthouse Pet, so I don't feel a need to hurriedly click to see what the rl looks like. That's because I'm interested in the person, rather than whether they are ultimately worth my time because of their looks. Experience has taught me that a lot of elderly and ugly folks, some even older than 40 (!!!) can be quite interesting. I don't know why that is? I mean when I was 20-odd I presumed everyone older was really boring, and clearly had let themselves go a bit. I certainly didn't want to waste my time talking to them. Now however, I have clearly let my standards slip, or perhaps I've grown up.
  17. Easy, be yourself. That's why you have it Hippie
  18. I used to post a lot in the forums, and made many lovely friends from my active time. However, I really got sick and tired of the amount of trolling, threats, insecure look-at-me, faux SLebrity, Forum Stars in their own mind, and those with a keyboard to hammer their view out on, rather than a monitor to read others, etc, etc. After a couple of years of regularly posting here, then almost three years very rarely posting, do I miss it? No.

You cannot make them no copy though, otherwise no one can read the notecard (something I never really understood about the permissions of notecards). But you can make them no mod and, if you wish so, no trans too. Who ever would have thought eight years ago when I registered for sl that my poetry would be a business to survive best all current plans and changes to come! :smileylol: Difficult to no transfer as copy, then paste to new notecard lets new owner set their own perms?

They have already, if several reports are to be believed, and why should they not be. The knock-on effect of this on the existing SL economy will be massive, as will be the consequences for LL's ability to fund the development of Sanitised Life. Any business plan (although somehow I doubt if one exists as yet) would have to be based on the redirection of existing profits from maintenance and V1 enhancement to V2 resources. But the profits, as explained, aren't going to be sustained, and by letting the cat out of the bag this early Ebbe has shot himself in the foot, because the Board are going to have to go running to third parties for money. And who is going to be interested? Nobody has been in the past five years, and every other attempt to offer a "better sl" has been a short-term commercial disaster Of course creators are looking for reassurances that they might be able to bridge the trading gap technically, and many will be doing their utmost to try to bolster market confidence by offering unfounded assurances to customers. I know that SL users are not known for their collective intelligence, but I don't think they are going to be taken in by the tepid and unprepared bluster currently issuing from an obviously disturbed - and apparently isolated - CEO. Bottom line? I don't think SL is going to last long enough to support the development period of Sanitised Life. And the CEO certainly isn't. "all you blood-thirsty bystanders, will you try to find your seats" Agree Perhaps Off on one, again Irrelevant
