    Um...

    The ceremony was great! And then we got hit by a griefer who took down the sim completely while we were standing around chatting afterwards. (At least they waited until after the conclusion of he ceremomy.) We all landed up chatting for two hours about various social VR and virtual worlds at a...

    Ask the Freebie Queen of Second Life Anything! Ryan's New Updated Guide to Freebies in SL

    Yeah, I know, I was stupid. I posted the same link to four different threads where people were looking for freebies.

    Ask the Freebie Queen of Second Life Anything! Ryan's New Updated Guide to Freebies in SL

    Yeah, they have been remarkably inconsistent about whether or not they ban me for posting a link back to my blog from the forums. I can go for months without an incident. And then every so often, out of the blue, I just get the banhammer. I'm feeling kinda sick and tired of it, to be honest.

    Ask the Freebie Queen of Second Life Anything! Ryan's New Updated Guide to Freebies in SL

    Well, I got a 24-hour ban from SL for posting this link to a few of the threads on the SL community forums discussing how to find freebies. I'm taking a break from the official SL community forums for a while.

    Gachas Are A Fucking Scourge

    Only once have I gone gangbusters on a Gacha. It was for Mary Poppins avatar named MaryPoppins Popstar: A 15-Minute Second Life Avatar Makeover: Mary Poppins! The rest of the time, if I see a gacha item I quite like, I always search for resellers on the SL Marketplace. I agree with Cristiano...

    Rediscovering A Love For Second Life

    Myself, I go through periods where I am on SL daily (like right now), and other periods where I wouldn't sign in for months. In fact, I had been making a conscious effort NOT to log into SL all the time a few years ago. But I love to style avatar looks, and Bento-enabled mesh bodies dragged me...

    Linden Lab lays off 30 staff

    The names I have heard who were let go were working on Sansar: Nyx and Cara Linden. Inara Pey has told me that Landon McDowell, Chief Product Officer, still has his SL account so that I assume that means he survived the layoffs. And Garth Linden is back on the Sansar Discord in his personal...

    Linden Lab lays off 30 staff

    I completely agree. In-world creation tools cannot compare with what you can now do in external programs like Blender, Maya and 3ds Max. However, I do note that some of the newer platforms like Somnium Space and Sinespace do offer some in-world building tools.
