Real or Imaginary

I just ordered some business cards for my Second Life alt. While that seems a bit insane, even to me, a tutorial I saw about running a Second Life business says it's better for tax reasons to keep everything under one name. So if you know me on SL and plan to meet me in real life, I thought a business card would make the transition from fantasy to reality a smoother one. Plus it's so darn cool. It's a trance card for hypnosis, a little 'freebie' induction to take home and focus on in the wee hours of the morning. And Vista Print had such a good deal, I'm getting two sided business cards in color with a spiral on them, for hypnosis of course, as well as a self-inking stamp with my name and address, all for under $25.00. I can't wait to get my new cards in the mail. Woot!

If only my computer memory would get here so I could actually PLAY Second Life.

Still Stuck on Welcome Island

I've been able to log into all 8 of my Second Life personas. It's so fun to see them all again. I can get SL to load and if I'm lucky I can stare at my person for about 10 minutes before everything freezes up. I am chomping at the bit to get the new memory card added to my computer. I hope the guy who ordered it tells me the minute it gets there. I've already lined up a whole bunch of hypnosis friends to join me on SL once I can get my new alt off of welcome island.

Almost Back

I got the 'new' used computer set up. He warned me it might be sluggish on SL until the memory he ordered gets installed. Well, he was right. My new avatar is on Welcome Island, and I can see it, walk a few steps, turn this way and that, and that's about it.

I logged into some of my old alts, and I was able to hear music and fly a bit. So far I haven't seen any other people. I'm not sure if I just don't have enough memory for them to show up, or if I'm in deserted locations. A lot of the landscaping is fuzzy. At least I have a computer again and can do other Internet things like blogging and checking email. In fact everything except run memory hogs like Second Life. It was so weird seeing my friend's list for the first time in 2 years. Some of the names I recognize. Most I do not. I can't wait until I can play a full on scenario. At least one of my names still has almost 1000 lindens.

Memories...Like the Corners of My Mind

I ran into two computer geeks in a chatroom, and they think I can get back on S.L. if I just spend about $100 on more memory. It seems this old computer I got stuck w/ barely has enough memory to wipe it's own *harddrive. But in the real world fixing my truck took all my cash this month. Sooooo...who knows when I'll be able to buy more memory.

Second Life Contest Winners.

I miss Second Life so much. Here is an animation from a SL contest. I believe this one came in second.
