  1. Tuesday, I sent you a PM with some SLURLs. I totally agree with you, regarding the difficulty of finding good black skins, but they really are out there...you just have to dig around for them. Hair's actually a bit easier, and I hope the locations I gave you are useful. Please feel free to IM me in-world if you like, I probably have some other SLURLs in my inventory I'd just forgotten...
  2. The SL me is a lot like the RL me, just more idealized and with one heck of a better wardrobe. But my virtual self wears pretty much the same things I wear, and has the same haircut (um, usually...), and we look similar. The big thing I changed (other than giving myself an awesome physique without having to hit the gym every day) was my nose: I always wanted a really sexy Sarah Bernhardt nose, and RL, mine's boring.
  3. When I first started SL, the hardest thing to get used to was movement, followed by trying to find someone to talk to. The default animations are atrocious and I hated the way I walked and stood, so I tried to fly everywhere. I assumed that, like most games, I could find people to talk to easily if I just flew around a little, so I spent days just aimlessly flying around the mainland. I'm sure you can imagine how well that worked out for me; I eventually quit SL out of sheer boredom. I came back, though. Still, it was a long, long time before I learned about AOs -- I had my noob duck-walk for ages.
  4. Fantastic advice, Sasy. There are so many ways a single item can be worn...and if you really want to get adventurous, you can try attaching pieces to a different location just to mix things up! One caveat, regarding system items made for men: some designers paint a "bulge" in the groin, or a Situation six-pack on the shirt, which may not preclude women from wearing menswear but certainly requires a little creative accessorizing. If you've got pants with a textured "bulge", throw on a belt or a longer shirt; if you've got a shirt with "muscles", grab a jacket. Thanks for writing this!
  5. This has been going on for over a month now. Every time my main tries to upload, I get this:  This goes for anything I try to upload: textures, notecards (even if I'm just trying to edit an already-written notecard), scripts (again, even if I'm just trying to edit an already-written script). It doesn't matter what viewer I'm using, or what computer I'm using: this is consistent, reproducable behavior across all viewers and computers. However, this is only happening to one of my avatars (my main, of course). All of my other avatars can upload just fine and write notecards and scripts. It is a frustrating, but feasible, work-around to simply log in to an alt to do my building, and I would like to resolve the problem. Does anyone know what's going on? <i>EDIT:</i> I have tried to upload in different regions / sims, and I have already cleared my cache (and note: I've tried on different computers, so it's not a cache issue). Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm still baffled.
