Broadband and Second Life Do Not Play Well Together

From Oct. to the end of Jan. I was stuck with a miserable dial-up connection and couldn't use Second Life at all.  So when in Feb. I decided to spring for the pricey Virgin Broadband at $55. per month I was happy that I could open Second Life again. Just when I was starting to have fun after two successful days of being on Second Life, it stopped loading right. I couldn't see my avatar, and the rooms just weren't loading well at all. I tried 2 different servers, cleared their caches, cleared my browsers caches and still nothing. Then today I thought I better check my Broadband usage chart. OMG, I burned through more data in 2 days on Second Life than in a week on normal computer browsing. I can't do SL at this rate or my Broadband won't last the month I need it to for business use and things like Facebook and Blogger. I'm so sad that I won't be able to do SL, unless Verizon gets around to adding more portals for DSL in the Lucerne Valley.  Even $55 is a burden for limited Broadband (per month) and I can't have it running out in a week. So sad. And I still don't know if Second Life is having PMS or if it just will never load right again.  At this rate I can't sit around twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to load. If at the end of the month I have any time left and need to burn it up fast before I pay again, I'll try loading SL again.

After watching the movie Ghost Rock I fell in love with the character Savannah.  The next time I dressed my avatar, I realized I had unknowingly made her like Savannah.

Happy 4th of July 'Second Life' Style

Celebrating holidays on Second Life is a lot of fun. I got this outfit from Ragdollz about a month ago and I'm glad I finally get to wear it. Click on the photos to see the bigger version.
My avatar is taking the day off so my real life personna can go to a 4th of July potluck in the park.

Taking A Day Off

Last night I was completely mesmerized by SL.  Too many men, too little time. I was Miss Popularity last night. I never wanted to go to bed.  But finally I was so sleepy I was walking into walls on SL. Today I'm not logging onto it at all. It's so addicting. And I have so much real life stuff to do.  Mounds of it. Like laundry and dishes and sketching and taking photos and packing to move.  Piles and piles of stuff that has to be sorted, sold, given away or tossed.  Ugh.  No wonder I want to stay on SL so much.  Look at the alternatives?

This is a new look I made for my first ever second life Alt.  Her name is Wystra. I hadn't used that account in a long time but I reactivated it when I found that to convert Lindens to cash I had to buy something on Second Life first to get the meter running.  You have a cap on how much you can cash out that rises over time, but it doesn't start counting until you make a purchase. Even if your account is 10 years old, it starts at day one when you put in your payment info.

Red Hair

Calico Kitty had some amazing hair on special for 55L. That 55L I spent earned me about 4000L in a club last night. Everyone loved my hair. Here are some photos I took on SL last night. The hair is called Addison II.  There is also an Addison  I that looks like this in front but is short in back.
