The blog here is about boredom cure which means I will give those who are bored , inspiration how to overcome the boredom. I start with a blogpost series about free games you could check out if you like games and if you are bored at home.
Today I want to suggest Second Life which is a free game (some dislike it to call it a game since it offers much more then a game) you could instantly download and enjoy for free. Second Life is basically an online virtual world where you can socialize with people, discover a new world, learn new skills, listen to music, being creative and much more. There is so much to do that I believe I will even forget to mention some things here in the blogpost. It is really hard to summarize all the things you can do against boredom in Second Life.
It is in my opinion one of the best free games for boredom cure because it is pretty complex and I guess it will cure boredom of most people in seconds if they test the game. I mean this because it is an online world where you can discover and learn much to overcome boredom. It´s simply a growing huge community created world to discover where you can meet a lot of interesting and creative people. Second Life is everything else then bored. It is such a huge world to explore that you will forget what boredom is.
Created a little but open Corner Store (20×20 meters) in Second Life, I decided that this architecture needs some green to give it some style. I started to create a plant tub I wanted in each corner of the store. While making these I though that is fun and started to create several and differend plant tubs in my little sandbox in the sky.
Thought the following screenshot is funny. The story above did end there that I became surrounded by green in my sandbox but well.. I wont stop creating more of them..
This is a new modern Room Divider in Asian Fan Style.

Freshly out of my Cinema 4d Mesh Project I talked about in my latest Blogpost.
Some days ago I found a little but very nice Store in Second Life:
Some of you know that I dont only write about my own Product Updates and my own Stuff. Sometimes I also like to support other merchants and creators as well with a little Blogpost.
I just wanted to write about the [P]erfection Store because I met the owner and she´s a very happy Person. We talked about this and that but she also introduced me to her Store.
I think Elf Ears are still a Trend in Second Life and I noticed soon she has some great looking Elf Ears in her Store from Southpaw.
I know some of you like them very much and that is why I wanted to share this Location with you.
If you like… just take a look at her Store
I think this Blogpost is more about her Elf Ears but she offers Eye´s in differend Colors as well. Some of them are cute and others are
in Zombie or Vampire Style. But you can also find Prim Nails and some very special Crown Armrings. They looking pretty fine.
I suggest you take a look there.
Oh and for those of you who are Freebie-Hunter´s…
Indee you can grab a Gift or play Lucky Letters
So hurry up and visit the [P]erfection Store
Finished this little and crazy Tipjar which will shoot with Particles after each tip (unless you did activate it in the Config Notecard). The Tipjar has much more features.. just read on
Or go direclty to the Marketplace Listing: Crazy Green Emitter Tipjar
THIS IS THE INSTRUCTION FOR THE TIP JAR
Feature List Summarized:
- Easy Setup with Configuration Notecard
- Every Settings are well descriped
- You as owner can choose if you want a Commission in % each Tip
- Choose if Tipjar-User will be logged out or can stay logged in if out of Range or not online anymore (You can define it in Meters)
- Choose if Peoples who want to login need to be in your Group or not
- Define the whole Hovertext and every Message the Tipjar can send
- Define the Color of the Hovertext
- Choose if the Tipjar should shoot Particles after each Tip or not
- Choose if the Particles should smash on Donator or the Tipjar User if Particle Mode active
- Define the Lifetime of these Particles if Particle Mode active
- Define the four L$ Payfields
How to use and change the Settings of the Product:
1. Rez the Tipjar.
2. Wait until the Initialization of the Tipjar is finished.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
3. First let´s customize your Tipjar now. Right click the Tipjar and click “edit”.
4. Go to the content tab.
5. There you will find the tipjarscript and the tipjarconfig
6. Make a copy of the “tipjarconfig” notecard and take it to your Inventory, just so that you have a Backup
7. Read carefully the configuration notecard. There you will find deeper Instructions and all about what you can change and how you do it.
8. After changing the configuration be sure that you click “save”!
9. Wait again until the Tipjar is initialized.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
The Tipjar will restart and initialize your tipjarconfig always if you changed and saved the config.
But after that, the Tipjar is ready to use.
When you made some Settings in the “tipjarconfig” File… and if you are happy with all Settings..
Just duplicate your Tipjar if you need more then one in your Club or Location. As you made already Settings,
the Duplicates will now have the same Settings.
You can also save your tipjarconfig in your Inventory after finishing your Settings. That is the way you can put
it back to a new rezzed Tipjar in case you did deleted every Tipjar from your Land. Good because you dont have
to make these Settings again. But be sure that you only have one tipjarconfig in your Object.
Q: The Tipjar is asking for Permission Debit. What the heck is going on? Can I trust you?
A: Yes, in fact you can trust me. Permission Debit is always needed in Second Life when a Script
want to take money from agent’s account. In the Case of Tipjar´s it is usualy so that your
Staff is logging into the Tipjar but you are the Owner of the Tipjar. If now someone (A Donator)
pays your Staff, the Money first goes through your Avatar and then to the Person who is logged
in to your Tipjar. So basicly the Script just ask you to get permission for this Function and to forward it
to your Staff or anyone who logged into your Tipjar. Anyway be careful in Second Life. Only give permission
if you trust the Creator of the Script you got.
FAQ will be extended in case many Customers ask similar or same Questions about one Topic
Today I just finished my new 10 meter high mesh spiral staircase for Second Life.
I offer two Versions:
This Kit of Spiralstaircases comes already with some very
great colorized and texturized version.That means it includes
already 6 Staircases in a very great design.
I did add 1 very basic
white version. It has the word “DEFAULT” in its name.
You can modify all of the 7 Staircases but you can use the
white default staircase as it has everytexture settings on
default (glow,shininess,brightness and so).for better starting from scratch.
Every Staircase is 10 Meter high and it has rezzed 18 orim equivs (That means 18 prims).
It is not sculped. It is a mesh product and therefor in high quality.
I hope this product will be usefull for you. I also hope you like this product.
I am always open for positiv and negativ critism and ratings as long as it is fair.
You can contact me whenever you have any questions.
THIS PRODUCT IS MADE IN A 3D APPLICATION, WHICH MEANS IT IS
A MESH PRODUCT. YOU WILL NEED A MESH BASED VIEWER TO SEE THESE OBJECTS. (Soon when there are only Meshbased Viewers and when LL did shut down Version 1 based Vievers, this notice here will be outdated and everyone can see Meshbased Products).
In a previous Blogpost, I told you already about 2ndhub. It is a Social Media Website related to Second Life and for Second Life Users. “Social Media” is probably not an unkown Concept for you. If not, then it is explained easy: Meet Peoples, Make Friends, Get known!
I think apart from making Friends inworld, lots of us use already Services like Twitter and Facebook to connect with Peoples who use Second Life. The basic problem is that Twitter and Facebook is not only used by Second Life Residents. So when we only want to meet and read Informations about Second Life, we need to filtering. But we do not have to do it on 2ndhub! And that is handy!
It doesn’t matter whether you want to connect because of Business-Reasons or because you just want to connect with Peoples from Second Life so that you can make new Friends. For each reason they have a Section and you wont be disturbed by one of them. The Layout is clean divided in Private Profiles and Business Profiles. That must be the reason why this Website becomes so interesting for differend Second Life Users.
Today I did read the Announcement that they reached 440 new Members in just 4 Days. I became nosy about the precise number of members and had to ask Mason Kingsford (Owner). He was very friendly to me and told me it is not a Secret! 2ndhub has today over 3100 Profiles which is in my Opinion very much. As we see.. it is doing well and I guess it will increase more. Many of us are already there and I just can suggest those who still dont have a Profile there, to hurry up!
You can find a 2ndhub Tour here.
Thanks for reading.. oh and by the way.. You can find my Profile there as well. Just contact me if you like.

Today I did browse the SL Marketplace Featured Items and found something really funny.
For you males there is a Skin which is inspired by the Dr.House MD TV show.
I really had to laugh coz I found it funny and I am sure I would buy this skin if I would be male.
You can find this Skin here on the Marketplace:
The seller is Naj Potez with the Store NAJ shop
I did read in the product description that you wil get:
- The Skin
- The Shape
- And for sure his animated walking stick
You´ll get it for 890L$ on the SL Marketplace.
I thought this funny and cool product is a blogpost worse.
So here is my top sold SL Marketplace Produkt for November 2010:
I told you in one of my latest Blogpost that I worked on a Phoenix Viewer UI modification.
This UI is called Minimalistic (Blue) and you can download it now direct out of your Phoenix Viewer.
Just open your settings and go to the UI options. Click on “get more” and choose “Minimalistic” and then “Blue” if you want to try that new UI out.
I have new neighbors and if you know me.. well then you know that I am even nosy who are my new neighbors. Normally then I went to the new neighbor parcel to say “Hello, I am your neighbor! How do you do?”.
Well, this is the way how I meet peoples around my own Parcel and this is working well. In my opinion it is better to know neighbors as it can get a nice friendship sometimes. And with sometimes I do mean thats almost safe.
So when I noticed my new neighbors, I went over there and said “Hello”. They was very friendly and did welcome me. We talked abour neighborship and soon I asked whats there Project. Even if I did notice already, they told me it will be a club. They said I should come to an event if I like.
So I did.. another day I had a lot of yellow points on the Radar and I was sure they hold an Event. I went over there again and a DJ was spinning and a crowd had fun and nice talk. I did feel like I am at home, very fast.
If you think now “Oh noes.. Miyo is writing about another new Club again!”, then you are wrong. In my opinion this Club is a bit differend. I think there focus is more on “talk together”, play together” and “meet each other”. Which means we talked.. but very special was that we played a game. More precisely,… We played many rounds Trivia. Trivia is fun you know? Not that you only answer some questions if you can.. no,.. along the way you become acquainted with each other. For me it wasnt easy as the questions was in english and was focusing more on american general knowledge. But at least there was also a lot of general knowledge from all around the world. Questions about geographicals.. and many others. So I was able to answer some of these questions and even if I was right, i´ve got some L$. But I didnt care about the L$ and I think others didnt to as the bottom line is to play together and having a great time. And yes I think we had! It was fun!
OK but let me tell you some Details and where you can find the Club. The Club is called Two Worlds. After asking them what kind of music they are related to, they told me that they play a wide range and arent related to anything special. They told me they play this and that depending on the Event and I think this is ok. I really suggest to stop by one day as it seems fun to meet the peoples there.
You can find the Club here: Click to teleport to the Two Worlds Club
I hope to see you there some day as I will stop by sometimes too. And I hope this article was interesting for you.

Today I am arrived at the United Beats – Code 415 Club in Second Life. I must say I am anyway a great fan of Minimal, House and Electro Music. So I did arrived at a Location where I feel pretty good. There was a DJ called Cyberstar and he really did groove the crowd. If you also like this kind of underground Music then you defenetly should take a look at this Location. They played a lot of “deep stuff” there. No mainstream. I often visit those Clubs in Second Life if I have enough time and I am pretty sure I was there already before. I think they did do some changes on the Location. I defenetly can remind Code 415 but the Club Enviroment changed I guess. All the Peoples I did meet there was pretty crazy. They had absolut cool costumes. Pretty Sci-Fi and modern. Well thats it.. Its a Tech-Scene so dont wonder. So my suggestion goes to Code 415. Check that Club out.
I mentioned before that Cloe is now the new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce. You maybe did read it here: A new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce.
So I think because of that, yesterday she did invite us to her Party at the “Wee Little Irish Pub“. I think you can read in the Name it was an Irish Pub. We had much to talk and did listen Music. I thought the Music sounds pretty Irish so thats why I asked Cloe if this is “Irish Style Music” and she said yea you could call it so but the Moderator is subject to call it “Celtic Rock”. For me it was new but I did enjoy the Music and indeed the little Pubs atmosphere and all the friendly Guests. I had the chance to meet peoples I already know and some of Cloe´s Friends which I didnt know before.
She also told me that she has an Irish Band in Second Life and that the “Wee Little Irish Pub” is the Place where they hold Events sometimes. I was nosy and did join the Group to be informed about Events. I think I will arrive there again then and it could be that I someday write another Blogpost about it.
I also had the chance to take a “Lionheart Times” in front of the Pub. It is a Second Life Newspaper about things that happen on the Lionheart Estates. Pretty funny writen. You defenetly should take a look and read a little bit.
Ok I had again a nice day in Second Life. Sadly I was to early tired and had to leave the Party. But it was because its another timezone here in Germany. So for me it was latenight. However I was there for a while and I really did enjoy to meet them all. I think this is all I can write about it but at least I have some cool Pictures for you, take a look:
Today I did build a new Product for Second Life. This is a romantic Pavilion which can be placed in a Garden or on a Wedding. Maybe it could be a good spot to meet and talk with friends. Or just for any other Event. I uploaded it already to the Second Life Marketplace:
Hope you like it. Greetings

Today I did meet Aviano Gearz on Twitter. I didnt know him before but I am even interested in new places. I think you know that. So he did tweet about his Cafe.. “Working on a little garden @ Geetu Cafe in Second Life.. Red, White and Pink Roses are beginning to blossom”.
Again I was nosy and I thought I take a look. A Cafe with with Flowers seemed to be interestind.. I like to see what peoples build in Second Life. And for sure I like to blog about it. Well at the moment his cafe is still a bit quit but I guess it is a new cafe. But why not visit it someday with your friends to have some communication in a friendly environment? Maybe you will meet Aviano Gearz there too and he is also very friendly. I can say I did enjoy the communication with him. You can see that he is from india.. He places the national flags there but also pictures of food. He also did show me a freebie corner because I am designer. And he said designer can place there freebie products for sure with Landmark and Notecard in the box. Peoples can grap a free product but designers can share Landmark and Notecard on this way. But I think I dont have to explain freebie here because we all know what it is I guess. So how I said the rest of the environment was also very sweet. I did enjoy the flowers there.
He did show me another interesting spot there in the cafe. He did place books you can read. They are related to India and if you click one of the books you will be redirected to google books. I did like that idea.
So if you like to visit this place with your friends in Second Life, here is the SURL for you: Geetu Cafe
Hey my friends! Today I did use twitter for some communication because I was bored. A few days ago I did meet MickeyETC on Twitter so that I had some talk with her today again. You all know I am often nosy so I did notice her link on twitter is a SURL. I just checked her location then out inworld in Second Life. And what did I notice there? Great! She is furniture creator like me! So I arrived there in her Furniture Center called EtCetera Furniture ETC. I would suggest you click that link here and see what she is offering.
She had many kitchen sets there.. but look at this screenshot here.. this red kitchen did impress me very much. I like this style. But how I said.. this is not the only kitchen there.. just take a look!
I also found many bed room furnitures. See this picture here.. I think this is a pretty awesome arrangement.
I think you can get there everything which is called furniture and so. I did notice a lot of great outdoor stuff too there. Some stuff you can place in your Second Life garden. I like her style.
But see this here.. The store is huge. You really find everything there and this is why I am to lazy to write down everything she is offering.. its a huge sortiment there. I found really much furniture there.
At least I found out that there are promo sales in her store. You see the june special promo on the screenshot.
It is her Tuscan Wrought Iron Patio Set. The Idea seems to be great, if you purchase anything there for 500L$ you will get this promo set for free. But you can also buy this set for 500L$.
So yea I would say if you next time searching for some good furniture and so, just take a look at her store. Im sure you will find some interesting stuff for your Second Life!
And here is the store SURL:ETC Furniture Center
