Lost – an Open Life report

me in OLThat’s the only word in my profile. Lost. Its kind of a strange feeling, to be here when OLG is so new and so raw. I signed up yesterday, and spent 3 hours on it, of which probably 2 hours was spent staring at the “Connecting to Region” screen as I made many, many failed attempts to log in or teleport anywhere. When I did manage to get in, I picked up a few freebies from the sandbox, and uploded a few textures to make my own, and I’m reasonably happy with the way I look here. I’m nowhere near as good looking as I am in SL – my skin here is a freebie one form a RPG pack but it has a ginger beard, and that’s all I really need to keep me happy, even if it does make me look like Philip Linden. And the Dirty Biker hair looks almost like the hair I wear all the time in SL, if I slap a bright orange tint on it instead of the usual black.

Today I hung out at Lecktor’s Roadhouse, and discovered how to use a poseball when the script doesn’t work. Right click > Edit > and play the animation from the contents tab. It works a dream, just like a Chimera.

But despite the rawness of OLG, and all the problems with logging in and teleporting, I’m actually loving it. I’ve socialised more, and made more friends, in 48 hours on OLG than I have in the past month on SL. And tonight when I got home from the pub and went online for an hour, it was OLG I picked, not SL. That says a lot.

Then again maybe it’s my ADHD showing…

(PS: watching the election results as they come in and Obama is ahead 108 to 34 so far. I am so tempted to stay up and watch it all but my old body wants my bed.)
