I’ve always liked to do my blogging images in a natural setting in Second Life. Partly because I am so fail when it comes to a back ground, but also partly because I love enjoying the many amazingly beautiful places that people build. For a couple of months now I have squeezed myself and my home in a small parcel. It was driving me insane! I needed to spread out, pull the trees apart and let the fields and flowers roll between the pathways, lakes and bridges I have always enjoyed. I finally moved, got a much larger bit of space to enjoy and took a few days to just paint the empty canvas my way.
These shots were all taken in just one corner. Kismet came over and patiently waited for it to rez, I swear her laptop is running on a rubber band and duct tape. While she waited I snuck a couple of shots. I love this one of her! If you want to see what she is wearing head on over to her blog here!
Over the next few weeks, or months, I am sure my land will be tweaked and changed now and then, but for now its an open playground that I hope others might sneak by and check out. I have rez open on it with a modest auto return so if people would like to use it, its there. I have to admit, I had the most fun with this build than others I have done in the past. You are sure to see a lot of pictures of it here soon.
Editing to update…I have since removed the link to my land. Short story, logged in to unusual lag hiccups, notified the sim owner, helped show him where the issue was as kindly as I could, and was told I was the problem with my know it all attitude. I hope that everyone within SL demands the service they are paying for, as I always have and always will. If I am paying for land and following a cov, and I report that someone else isn’t, *I* am not the problem. Remove your COV if you do not want to enforce it or be shown something you are ignorant of. I will not be told to basically shut up about technical issues if it is costing me money. I will not be told I am insulting when I am, in fact, just trying to help solve an issue. In the end, I requested a refund and said I would clear my land to prevent further issues because I have a habit of asking for what I pay for, good running land (perhaps my last job spoiled me, DSE is still the best estate I’ve seen, I am sure there are others, I just haven’t rented many other places) and in response I was ejected, banned, all items sent back (not an issue, easy to rebuild, but had to dig out my no copy items) and refunded. The refund came only after a short changed refund of a small portion of what I had paid. Luckily, they came back and *did* finally refund me. Some people just don’t know how to treat residents when they find an issue, that estate certainly was one.
Fortunately I can sit and say thank you to the support of the amazing friends and fellow plurkers. For your private messages and for the person that snagged me up to live on their sim with them. I have in fact shown the logs of these conversations because I was sorely in doubt about my own behavior and told no, I was defensive yes, and blunt, but not insulting or mean. Others also stepped forward with their terrible experiences with the same estate. Another case of lesson learned!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
