|Where Are My Eyes?|
|Taking a Spin|
Written 29 July, 2007
When I logged in this morning, every thing was just fine-- for maybe thirty seconds. Then my avatar shorted and thickened and orange hair sprouted undernaty by Mystikal BubblePony do and my hobbit feet spilled out of my elegant Sylfie's shoes.
I was ruthed.
Worse, my inventory seemed to be ruthed, too. Most of it was gone, and it didn't seem to be downloading.
Hmmm. Maybe it wasn't a client-side issue after all!
Multiple log-ins didn't fix the problem, so I pulled out my trusty alt, Dakota.
Well, she's not THAT trustworthy. I know she's been underreporting her tips from the Dragon Skybar. But still...
Anyway, Dakota rezzed just fine and her inventory-- not that she has that much of it, and what she has is like too goth girl for me-- seemed fine. And she was able to rezz and delete objects.
Voice First Look crashes m computer (not just SL, the whole computer dies) on a regular basis, maybe once every 45 minutes, so I reluctantly started it.
Hmmm. Optional download. Maybe that will help with the crashes. And the weirdness.
Nope on the weirdness. I'm still ruthed. And poorfly rezzed ruthed at that!
Nope, not server side at all.
As to whether Voice First Look will still crash my computer? Probably.
Still, there IS a lot of client-side weirdness in Second Life.
Last night I changed upon a photo I took a while back at the Sphynx Jazz Club. As he danced, an avatar was spinning around, rotating on his long axis (no, guys, I know what you would like to think of as your long axis, but I'm talking about from head to toe. He was just dancing and spnning, and no one saw it but me.
Now my eyes are gone!
They just now disappeared.
