Thursday Discussion – Viewer of Choice

On Thursday 26 May at 2pm SLT, at LnL Square:

Viewer of Choice?

It’s been over a year since Linden Lab launched Viewer 2. Do you use it? Do you prefer the old style viewers, and why or why not? Do you trust and use Third Party Viewers? What features would your perfect viewer have?

We’ll be discussing these and related questions. Join us!

SL Discusstions at LnL

Every Thursday at 2pm I host a discussion at LnL Square, on some thought-provoking topic related to Second Life. I’m going to try to remember to post them here every week.

On Thursday 19 May at 2pm SLT we’ll be revisiting an old favourite topic, “Relationships in Second Life”. Partnerships – marriages and all the associated drama. But can they work? Or should they be avoided at all costs? What’s your experience of relationships in SL? Hope to see you there.…tti/227/21/317

Bitten by Horses

About a couple of weeks ago, I was persuaded to get an Amaretto horse.  His name is Shihab, and he’s a red Arabian, and I picked him up from a market somewhere for L$125. Not bad, considering these horses are actually rideable, and they’re about a hundred-odd prims less than my Hoofit horse.

A week and L$900 later I had six more horses; another stallion and five mares, and I am well and truly bitten by the breeding bug.

Shihab and Teo (a black Arabian mare, not pictured) have now become the proud parents of Lizzie, my first foal:

She has fire element eyes, just like her dad.
