Betatest and adjustment of my Custom UI Skin Files

I told you in “this Blogpost” that I did create a custom UI Skin for the Phoenix Viewer. Now I had a response from LordGregGreg and if I am finished with everything I can email him the files and things start rolling.

So I told him that I will monitor my own UI Skin for a while now. I think I will monitor it for a Week while I play Second Life. I think thats the way how I can make some adjustment if I find anything strange in the UI.. yea I would call it betatest on my own. But at the moment I didnt find anything strange. But better using it one week so that I did explore every single menu. Its a measure of precaution so that I dont send out a UI Skin with failure.

But everything seems that this Skin will be one of the alternative Phoenix Viewer UI´s in the future. At least you might be able to choose this one then in your option panel.

That makes me happy. The Phoenix Viewer gives me so much fun with Second Life and now I am able to give something back to this awesome Team which is responsible for it that this great Third Party Viewer stays alive.

I also noticed that they all are very friendly. Thats cool!

Ok I am back to work now.


“minimalblue”, a new alternative Phoenix Viewer UI Skin? Maybe…

Today I was bored and searched a new activity. While I did reading the Phoenix Viewer Wiki, I found there a short but good understandable Guide called “Custom UI Skins”. I never thought I would create an custom UI for a Viewer but as I was bored I did give it a try.

First of all it was a lot of orientation, training and as they wrote in the Guide “Trial and error rocks!”. I agree at this point and I had a lot of fun with it.

So I would like to introduce you in the result:

minimalblue

(You can click on this screenshot to load it maximized)

As I wasnt sure if peoples will like this custom UI, I thought I could ask in the Phoenix Viewer Support Group and then I´ve got positiv Feedback which made me happy.

Someone wrote me I should introduce this UI Skin to Jessica Lyon from the Phoenix Viewer Team. And I did so..

Talk with Jessica

Seems that they like it so as she said I did contact LordGregGreg but he was offline. So now I wait for a reply but I am still pretty happy about this day. Sometimes a bored day can really end in a day full of creativity. Sometimes you just have to go new ways and learn new stuff.  🙂

 

So if I understand it right, they would add this new UI Skin to the next release but I will see what LordGregGreg will say if he reply. If it will be in the next release as alternative UI, then I am happy, that I could give something back to this wonderful Viewer and this great Team which supply us with this awesome awesome Viewer. 🙂

At least I would like to add this Poll to ask if you like this UI..

Greetings


Phoenix Viewer 1.5.1.373 released!

Jessica Lyon posted on her Blog that a new Version of the Phoenix Viewer is released. You can download the Phoenix Viewer 1.5.1.373 here. And here is the Changelog.


Did you know about 2ndHub Social Media for SL?

Today I did discover a new Social Media Website for Second Life Residents, called 2ndHub. I did create already my Profile there. My first impression is very good. The design is pretty good and you can setup many things on your Profile. For sure you can also connect with other Peoples which is logic as it is an Social Website. If you are Merchant, Designer or what ever, you are able to create addidionaly to your private Profile a Business Profile. The last one seems to be a good idea if the Website will be popular in the future. I can imagine that this could be a nice way to make your Business again more popular then it is already.

I also did discover that they seems to be adding Vendors in the Future. It seems so that you will be able to open Shops directly on this Social Website but im not sure about this.

I need to say that the whole Website is still in Beta-Stage. So I´m not sure what the future will bring. But my impression was that this could be a good alternative place to meet Second Lifers. I would say you try this Website out.. it is without cost. I will defenetly follow whats happen to this Project in the Future. I guess its promising.


Latest Lionheart Times released…

Mistletoe Ethaniel released the latest Lionheart Times. This is a Newspaper about Second Life, the Lionheart Estates and the Lionheart Community. You will find an Article about the coming soon Oktoberfest, Halloween and Winter Carnival in Second Life. You also will find a great Article for Merchants called “Why Customers Leave Your Shop in the first two Minutes” and much more.

So I strongly suggest to read this Newspaper:

Lionheart Times Sept. 19, 2010


Working on a new Project with a friend in SL

Yesterday I did talk with one of my friends called “Rockhound” in Second Life. As I prefer building with prims and he like the chalange with scripts, we came to the idea to start a project together. All I can say is that it will be a new tipjar. At the moment it is a try of our idea. So thats why I wont reveal to much now. But it will have some pretty cool effects which I will reveal if we did really finish the project. So stay tuned! 🙂


Oktoberfest is coming soon on the Lionheart Estates

Yesterdays I went to our Estate Community meeting called “Howdy Neighbor Day” on the Lionheart Virtual Estates. If you dont know about this Event.. its an event for Lionheart Residents and there friends and an opportunity to step off our land in pursuit to greet and meet each other. Socializing is the magic word and we hold already several of these meetings.

Sookie and me did write blogposts about one of the meetings some time ago. Read Sookies Blogpost and my Blogpost about one of our Neighbor Days if you want to know more.

So apart from meeting each other and talk together we also plan new things. Yesteday we talked about an idea to hold an virtual Oktoberfest Event. We had already a lot of good input but it is still in planing phase i guess. But one thing you should know.. Lionheart Events are usualy very well planed and make a lot of fun. So be prepared for the Oktoberfest soon. I will keep you informated if I hear more about it and when it will start. I imagine this event could be a blast.

So I think I will write about more details soon when I know more.


You miss the Arabella Steadham Drama?

ogin FailedWell, no problem!

Watch the latest Arabella comments on her Flickr “Login Failed” screenshots:

Arabella is flaming on her flickr “Login Failed” Screenshot

She act so silly.. Anyhow I dislike to quote her.. but on the other side I thought this here is more then funny:

“phoenix and emergence are based on emerald indeed, just been screwed up by incompetent people who cannot code”

What a Drama Queen she is 😀


Found a great Newbie Guide for Second Life

Today I was bored and explored the SLUniverse Forums. Found a Thread where someone show of the own Blog with somthing like a Newbie Guide. Well, Im not new to SL but I thought this is something pretty interesting to share:

Getting startet in Second Life

I think it should be very appreciated that SL Users who are already very familar with Second Life, share Informations for Newbies who start with SL. And thats why I just wanted to share the Link to this great Beginner Guide too.

Maybe some of you are new to Second Life and could need it. If not.. if you know already everything about Second Life, you still could share this Link if you know a Newbie or if someone ask you for beginner-questions. 🙂

Great Guide and thanks goes to Pussycat Catnap.


Nice to hear, Phoenix Viewer made it!

I am pretty happy that the Phoenix Viewer is now on Linden Lab´s Third Party Viewer List. Congratulation to Jessica Lyon and her Team. 🙂


Emerald Viewer is now insignificant! The Phoenix Viewer is there!

As I already said in this Post: “Malicious Joy, Jealousy and so much more. Kid.. Choke on it!“…

And its right.. Every “End” is a “Beginning”. Someday there will be another complex Viewer like Emerald. Indeed maybe this Codebase will be used to produce a new similar Viewer.

And there we go…

Jessica Lyon announced the Phoenix Viewer on her Blog.

I’m am very proud to announce the launch of the Phoenix Viewer. This project, has started off simple, with it’s initial release of a safe clone of the Emerald viewer. Users want Emerald features, you shall have them. We have big plans to expand to the Snowstorm project as well. We have already applied for the TPVD, to which we have no doubt we will be accepted in a timely fashion. We have already started making in world groups for support, (Phoenix Viewer Support), beta testing etc. There is much more to do… however…

Jessica lyon assembled a team of developers to work on a new viewer called “Phoenix Viewer“. She said the new Viewer is developed and will be updated by Peoples who were originally Emerald developers, some who were not. She said they all are respected reputable residents in the SecondLife Community. She also said everyone on this team insists on 100% public transparency in EVERYTHING they do. Btw. LordGregGreg Back is in the Phoenix Team too, which means that the Emergence Viewer probably will not be updated anymore.

If you want to know more about the Team, all the Developers and the Viewer you should check out Jessica Lyon´s original Blogpost about that:

From the ashes….

And check out the Website (still in Progress) of the Phoenix Viewer here:

The Phoenix Viewer

So I am happy that the whole Story and Drama has an Happy End. Peoples who did like the Emerald Viewer because of the Style and Features now know where to go. There is no End.. there is a beginning.


Cool Minimal Music at United Beats – *CODE 415*

United Beats ClubToday 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.


Thank you LordGregGreg! Now I can keep going on with my Favorite Viewer!

Yea I really need to thank you LordGregGreg. But not only you.. I also have to thank all Peoples who did suggest me to install the Emergence Viewer, which is a Clone because its the Emerald Source Code. I did try the Viewer today and didn´t see a difference to Emerald. Well sure.. as I said it is the Emerald Source Code. And now I am pretty happy.

You will find the latest Emergence Version 1.5.0.2 here.

Now we just need to hope that LordGregGreg will keep it up to date. But I am sure he will. Its just importend that this kind of Viewer stays alive. Yes, call me “Fangirl”. 😉


Malicious Joy, Jealousy and so much more. Kid.. Choke on it! (Emerald)

Second Life Kiddys<<— “Emerals is Gone !! (YaY)” These kind of Topics I found yesterday and today in differend Second Life related Forums. And I really ask myself what kind of Person you must be if you have so much malicious joy, jealousy and hate in your Heart. Its pretty amousing if I read those babyish Peoples who  wants to share ther spitefulness.

Right. Fact is that a huge amount of Second Life Users is now unhappy because ther favorite Viewer is History soon. They are Peoples who did decide for Emerald because the matter of Taste. Because there subjective Feeling is that it is the best Viewer. I am one of these Person who did use Emerald because it had Tons of Features which I cant find on a single other TPV.

As I said, Indeed it is a matter of Taste. Its all about Flavor. I wont say that other TPV´s are bad. I just say that for my requirments, Emerald was the best Viewer. Otherwise I wouldnt have used it for a so long time.

So now all these childish Peoples come out of there Corners and rejoice in there own mischievousness. And you know what? Those Peoples with pretty low requirements will soon see: “He who laughs last laughs loudest”. You really believe that Peoples now will go over to SLV 2.0? I dont think so. First of all Peoples like me will login with Emerald as long as possible. Which means so long if Emerald dont get access to the grid anymore because of LL. After this they probably will find another TPV instead of using 2.0 Viewer.

And its right.. Every “End” is a “Beginning”. Someday there will be another complex Viewer like Emerald. Indeed maybe this Codebase will be used to produce a new similar Viewer. Emergence is an example but nobody knows if this Viewer will be refined in the long run. But you can be sure there will be an alternative with the same amount of Features then Emerald has. Some Peoples will take the Code and improve it and make a new Viewer out of it (Sure without malicios code). Thats say “This is indeed not the End”. This is not how the World is turning. And let me see if these snotty littles still enjoy there malicious joy. Now I just can hope that these Trolls choke on the own gloating. Oh noes.. Did I curse now too?

However, Let these  little Drama-Queens and Drama-Kings choke on the own sounds of levity.

Have a nice day 🙂

PS: Get an impression what other Peoples think. Read all comments here: The End


Sad News: The Emerald Viewer Project is Dead

Arabella Steadham Announced on the Emerald Viewer Blog that there will not be any further releases of the Emerald Viewer after today.

Linden Lab has made demands of the team that are impossible to meet. Among the demands not listed publicly elsewhere was to publicly release an RC without any ability to load the emkdu or llkdu files. This was do-able. The final demand was to ‘delete’ 3 key members of our team. While making this demand, Linden Lab was quite aware that this was effectively the guillotine to the project.

Cloe´s Party at “Wee Little Irish Pub”

Irish PubI 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:

Lionheart Chamber of Commerce Election Results

Some days ago I wrote already about the Chamber of Commerce Election Weekend on the Lionheart Estates. The Chamber of Commerce Members and the Chairmen-Candidates came together. The Candidates introduced them self and the Members asked some Questions and got many Answers. You can read more about the Election Weekend here:

Miyo´s Blogpost about the Chamber of Commerce Election Weekend

Today the Lionheart Estates announced the Election Results. For the Roundup, 21 members have participated in the Elections and 3 votes were invalid (One vote per business only..). So this means there were 18 valid votes distributed as following:

– Sookie Slafford: 6 casting of Votes

– Clover Windlow: 12 casting of Votes

This means we have a new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce and for this reason many congratulations goes to Clover Windlow. But for sure thanks goes to both Candidates, all Members and the Lionheart Estates as well because of  this exciting Weekend we had.

You can find the original Announcement on the Lionheart Website:

I visited the Estate Town Hall Meeting

Today I went to the Lionheart Town Hall Meeting. It was funny to see all the peoples from the Lionheart Estates again. We shared some Informations and News. It was very intresting. One of our Topics was that Linden Lab is working on Screennames. This means that we soon maybe can change the Name of our Avatar which appears to others Inworld. But this doesnt mean the Accountname itselfs. Just the Name which is over our all Head. We did discuss this. Many peoples worried about this News as some peoples and me too believe this could be abused by some Peoples. Griefers could immitade Names of others and Newbies could fall into this trap. Or if you did build a big Business in Second Life, someone could describe them as you, and this could result in further Problems. If it is possible to copy others Names, its sure that there is a Reason to worry about.

But this wasnt the only Topic we had. As always we had a nice round for Asnwers, Questions and Suggestions. I made the suggestion that the Estate should have an own Sandbox for Estate Members only. It could be a nice spot to meet each other or maybe working on shared Projects. We wouldn´t have Lag like in Open-Sandboxes and Peoples with smaller Parcels could work on bigger Objects and Projects. Indeed we wouldn´t have the Problem with Griefers as it would grands access only to Peoples who live on this Estate. I noticed that many Peoples liked the Idea. They came with additional thoughts on that. At least our Estate Manager said that this is a nice Idea but he need to think about it. I think it was about the realization. Indeed it cost many Prims and many Space so the realization would also cost him more Money. But I think my suggestion arrived and lets see maybe there is still a Chance in the Future.

We had way more Topics but I cant remind them all. It was again nice to meet the Estate Manager, the Lionheart Team and all my Neighboors. After all the formal Topics we went over to usual Chat. Talked about this and that. Had fun together and so. I like it. Great to meet them all.


I did meet a friend in SL and just hang out. Cool!

Rocking in a Club So today I did meet a Second Life Neighboor which I already know for some time now. He has a Parcel not far away from mine. First we talked about differend stuff and then I´ve got an invite from a neighboor Club called “Number 12”. For all who dont know about this Club.. It is a alternative and Rock Club. I did write about it some time ago:

Number 12: Awesome Rock and Blues Club in Second Life

I told my friend about the invite and he decided to go there too. We did listen music and did write about everything. Our biggest topic was Windows Vista vs. Windows 7. I told him that I dont like it if a Operation System ask me multiple questions if I really want to start a programm or move data files from one to another location. We had much fun and did laugh much.

I like those day when I can hang out in Second Life and just relax the time, listen music and talking with other peoples. We also talked exactly about this topic. What do we do today if we are bored and its cold outside? We have the posibility to hang out in front of our computers. Use some photoshop or just hang around in Second Life. I asked him what he would to if he was born in 1818 or so.. He said he would posibly write a book. It was interesting to know. He told me that he like to write. What would I do if we wouldnt have computers and all this? I hope I would have a horse! I could imagine that I would like to ride a horse every single day. Maybe I would like to write songs.. I love music and in real life I play guitar. Maybe I could write songs on piano when I would be born 1800 or so.. You maybe laught about the topic we had. But at least its a good question or? What would you do in times were they didnt have stuff like computers or tele vision? I think they also had much hobbys.. music, writing,. painting.. at least they arent much differend to our hobbys today. Its just more technical and modern today. But we will see some day too.. Its just today modern and it will be old in the future. I like to talk with peoples about those philosophical stuff. At least we had much fun together and a great talk with great music.

My Parcel is on the Lionheart Estate and it can be fun to hang around there. You have so much neighboors with differend own projects there. You will find clubs and and and. When I did rent my parcel there it is some time ago and today I already know lots of peoples who are tenants there too. So this is what I like. Its like a virtual home town.. yea I feel at home there.

Ok but after listening music we got a group Invite of the Chamber of Commerce. It is a association of all Merchants and Business Ownerd from the Lionheart Estates but I will tell you more about this Event in my next Blogpost. Just check that out if you want to know what we did there.


Enjoy Your Time at Geetu Cafe in Second Life

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

Found a huge furniture center in Second Life

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


Most SL Clubowners are without sense of decency!

Yes you did read right. In my opinion most SL Clubowners are without sense of decency. Oh and I miss logic and cleverness too. I would go so far that I say most of them want to rip you off if you ate tenant!

But this doesnt mean that I say every Clubowner want to screw you. No I said many or most of them do so. And this is my experience as shopü tenan.

I told some of you with a blog article that I did rent a shop at Club Pacha in Second Life and that this spot was horrible. I did pay for four weeks and in this four I didnt have a single sale. I must say here that I dont expect only sales if I rent anywhere.. Sure it is great if I sell much.. but it wont be to bad if I dont sell much. I expect first of all to share my notecard and landmark with my LMgiver there. Next I expect that peoples will see my shop sign. All this is name recognition and brand awareness. And this is what I expect first of all. If I sell anyway.. its great too! However in case of the Pacha Club I did not even share one single landmark or notecard. I am total sure that I wasnt able to build brand awareness on this spot. And this is why I called it “epic fail” in one of my blog articles.

For sure I did tell the club owner that I was pretty unhappy with this shop space. It was idle money. But I didnt want to make much trouble because of this. For me it was just clear that I dont re-new the rental there.

Somedays later the club owner contacted me again to tell me about his new plans. He want to rebuild the club and wanted to make sure if I maybe rent on the new spot. In a second I did hit the keyboard and did answer to his IM “No I am not interested.”. After he said that this spot will have again huge traffic I said “Hun.. traffic doesnt mean anything.. it could be a place full of bots and thats why I dont care about these numbers”.
He said he isnt gaming traffic and so…

Then I recived some plans which looks like this:

I did trust him. He said this would be the new strategy. And I have to say that I like these kind of spots. I very good experience in the past with that. I was tenant of several clubs with the same strategy. And if get a good shop there, it can be great.. but just “can be great”..

Because of my good experience with clubs who use this strategy I was interested now and had to ask him many questions again. I asked him for example if the TP Point will be a fixed point for all. Or if he will teleport peoples directly to the dancefloor? He said everyone will arrive on the tp point and then they have to go through the mallway until they reach the dancefloor of the club. I asked him some other question..
And I thought all sounds good and I will try it out for a week. He did assure to give me a spot near the club. I thought about that and later I said “Ok lets try that”.

You maybe ask now why I am so unhappy then? Well.. because he gave me a grafic like this.. and he told me about his plans but later I had to notice that some of these points arent true.
If we talk about teleport point.. He said everyone will arrive on this point. Today I did notice this is not fact. Nevermind how you arrive there.. Groupmessage, LM, Notecard, Direct teleport or what ever.. you will arrive directly on the dancefloor and not on the tp point. Only the peoples who came from search they will arrive on the teleport point.

However this is not the biggest problem…
When I did check my rental box I had to notice that they increased the rental fee from 300L$ to 400L$ without tell me this. You may think now “Well but its just 100L$ more..” but I have to say this is not the problem. The problem is here that he changed later so much things that it is now total differend to the agreement before. I did rent this spot on a total differend agreement.

But sure for me 400L$ weekly seems to be exorbitant too. Let us think logic now. We all know about Second Life economy behavior. To reach 400L$ in a week with a little shop near a club isnt assured.
Sometimes it can work.. sometimes not.. but I calculated with 300L$ here because this was the agreement and later I have to pay 400L$ now.. its not good because in this case 80% of peoples wont see your shop anyway because the teleport them to the dancefloor. If I count all this together.. yes then I get angry.
Because if he would told me before about these changes, I maybe wouldnt spend money on that.

Im sure I wont earn so much money there that I can cover the shop rental. And I am sure others cant do too. And this is why he maybe need to search every one or two weeks new tenants

For me its a pain to find peoples who hold what they said before..

I did tell him my opinion about that now. Let me see what he will answer. But assurance in these guys is lost anyway.

I just guess that many club owner use shops to farm Lindendollars.. they really do not care about the tenants.. what they see is the fast and easy money. Maybe not all.. but many peoples do.

I know they have costs for the land too which need to be covered..For sure they need to do but it would be for all better if these peoples take care about the tenants..Those exorbitant tends to nothing..they are unlogic.

So this is why I call it “farm the tenants”.

Sometimes I cant stop thinking that it is a shame and that there are a lot of fraudster in Second Life.

Sure maybe all this sounds like I am pissed now.. Maybe I am.. but this blog post will help me forget this. Blogging keeps me relaxed.. so all will be cool! 🙂

Attention! Griefer Group roaming around in SL!

A few Minutes ago I did recive a Groupmessage from my Estate Owner. He said there is a Griefer Group roaming around and they terraforming parcels and regions to extreme heights and depths in a lot of places on the grid! This will cause items to be sent off-world and prims to be returned to the owners Lost and Found Folder.

So be sure that “Edit Terrain” for all users is unticked/unchecked on your Parcel Settings!

If you dont know about this Opion, you can find it here on the SL Wiki:

Thanks goes to Lionheart for reporting this.

Number 12: Awesome Rock and Blues Club in Second Life

Last week I did notice there is a new building near my Mall. Because I even like to know my neighboors, and because I did notice many peoples on this neighboor parcel, I thought it would be a cool idea to say “Hello” there. I even do so if I notice new neighboors. However.. First I wasnt sure what I will find there. But when I arrived I did hear rock music and I was suprised! You know why? I love rock and alternative music! So now I was sure this must be a club and I was right.

So yea I went into the building and there was a party going on. The club is called “Number 12”. Peoples was friendly there and did greet me. It didnt took much time and I did feel very comfortable there. Not only because the friendly peoples, friendly communication there and the friendly atmosphere… I did also feel comfortable there because they did play music I like. They did hit my taste of music very good. Apart from rock and blues music they also did play very great old rock and oldie music. For sure they also did play some harder guitar music and thats what I like! I really did enjoy every single Song there and had much fun.

While I did dance with all the peoples there, I did meet the co-owner who is called “Do Negulesco” in Second Life. She also was very friendly. I asked her if I could write a blog article about this club because I like the club and I would like to tell peoples about this location. And yea she said this would be very cool. She also did offer me to tell me about the club history. I thought this would be pretty cool because this makes the article much more interesting. So this is why I will tell you something about the club history now.

They did start the first Club called “Number 12” back in September 2007.
It was the same club like the new “Number 12” today. IJsbrand McMillan (Owner) did start this project with his friends Glenn Umarov (DJ), Bloem Bekkers (Host) and Nella Ceawlin (Host). The club was small but anyway the location did enjoy to be in a vogue because they even played pretty great music. But other then today the did not hold events every day. But if they had events.. The club was well visited.
They did hold Events like the “Mister and Misses 12 elections” or Tattoo-Contests and many more. However “Do” told me that they had to close the old club because they didnt have enough time anymore then. Because of the popularity of the club it was sure that peoples was sad when they closed the first club back in August 2008.

IJsbrand and Do did work now for 18 month in other clubs then. But in this time they got the idea to re-open the “Number 12” some day. When Glenn and Bloem did hear about this new plans, they was right away enthused. They said “Sure.. re-open the Club and we will be there!”. “IJs” did find land on the Lionheart Estate and then they started to work on the new club.
So the re-opening was on 7th May 2010 with many guests and old friends. And you can be sure they was pretty happy and did feel comfortable again because it was like “come back home”!

As you can see… the club “Number 12”  is reborn.
But today the new club will have a DJ and Events every day at 12 PM – 2 PM. But much more importend is that peoples will have fun again and for sure they will enjoy there time at “Number 12” together. And im sure they even will come back!

So I would like that if you will visit the club too soon. If you want to do, here is the teleport location:
