New Roleplay area

A bit back to the roots when DD was a skybox, and then again a different theme too. Fast RP, no long winded stories, and yes, lots of.. uhm.. intercourse *coughs* ...

The feedback so far is positive. Let's see where it goes.

Location? Search for the above. It is at Nayeli and Eiai.

Firestorm Beta

Soooo, here i am, having downloaded the firestorm beta from here. When you do that, you are strongly advised, to have a clean install. That means, all older firestorm alphas and betas shall be removed.
Firestorm is somewhat Phoenix in Viewer 2. Well, not exactly. But that is the closest description to it.
After having downloaded and installed the viewer, one can either run it straight, or adjust the skin, or adjust the skin later, whatever you prefer.
The biggest point of quarrel for many is, according to discussions, the Viewer 2 sidebar. Firestorm payed tribute to those concerns by launching the viewer in its standard setting without the sidebar. However, under "Avatar-Preferences -Skins" one can select, with or without.
And here is now my standard setting with sidebar:

In the next picture, we will now take a closer look to some settings on the User Interface (UI).

  1. The menu "Me" in V2 is now "Avatar" in Firestorm. 
  2. The sidebar is optional
  3. Almost all can also be obtained via buttons at the bottom
  4. Group- and personal IMs are signalized in the lower right corner.
  5. The minimap has a nice feature, showing the chatrange via a circle
The beta runs here smoothly so far, only one crash, and i have in graphics almost all enabled, even those switches where the warning says that would be very unstable. Using this viewer is pretty close to V2, except that some menu points are labelled a bit differently (i.e. "Me" to "Avatar").

So, folks, it is time, to say goodbye to V1 Viewers, definitively in the next weeks. Why so?
because mesh will hit the grid, In July and August. A feature that will not be available, according to LL for V1 viewers. And so, rumours say, V1 viewers are going of the grid soon.

Moaning and bitching about how cool V1 viewers are and how bad V2 viewers are, misses the point. The V2 user interface is simply what we will have to deal with in the very near future. And, it is indeed more intuitive.

Clarification about last night (interesting only for the Glint-people )

So to prevent the rumour disease to spread, here now for all who are interested, my thoughts on the latest events and IMs:
I have learned that, if a person managed to get really onto my bad list, they can stay there indeed until judgement day. I do not care. Especially when these people never made even the faintest approach from their side to change that. And even when i think i would have gotten over things and lifted bans, seeing they do not even then start to also make a step towards me, just leaves them where they are. My blog is not a pillory, so i will not give any names, but also to prevent misunderstandings: said person was the GF or Mistress or whatever to someone who called me a Nazi, via a group note, send to 6000 residents at that time. The Nazi incident was not the only reason that brought her there, but certainly part of it. Enough said. Those who know her name, fine, and for the others, just leave it at that.
Anyway, said person was on my radar two nights ago, and i decided to sleep over it, before i react. And as i was still thinking about the issue, another IM popped up, a friend giving me a heads up... that some PRG member found the idea enticing to fuck me with my guns, literally...
err.. yes.. wtf?
Now, i do not find that idea anywhere close to enticing. Nor do i fancy to see that other person on a regular base. When i expressed my concern i got as feedback some confusion, people wondering what i want, in fact.
So, maybe i am wrong. Maybe i overreact. maybe my judgement is not as objective as it could be. Maybe i am even unfair.
Sorry for that.

It just feels wrong. And so, i stay away. And no, i have no other consequences or reactions planned. I will just leave them in peace. And wish for the same. It was really about time to let go of DD, for me. That is what i learned. And i wish those who are running it, all the best.

Not going to vent a little

I wanted first to write something.. for example about moaning blogs.. who are justifying everything and everyone in SL. Or for example about those readers of such blogs. Or for example about unfriendly IMs. Or Imposers.

I decided not to.

I am not going to feed anyones craving for drama. This blog will stay clean, and only give tips and tricks about SL, and stuff. And sometimes be my diary.. mostly about good things.

You all have a sunshiny, wonderful weekend.

Kisses and love to you
