I went to a class in Second Life -- well, a demonstration and explanation of something someone's working on, called "genprims." Genprims are prims that (in progress now) will be able to move, procreate, reflect "genetic" qualities, respond to people, and much more. I asked if one might "mirror object" - because that would be a HUGE thing to builders. He said definitely. I'm not very well informed but I'm totally jazzed about the possibilities.
Then I went to see DarkLife, which has been in closed beta. I ran into Tedd T., who invited me to take part in the upcoming closed beta session,. I was very enthusiastic about that. The sim reflects the loving care the builders have lavished on it. As far as I can see it's a fantasy medieval game world of sword-wielding warriors, healing potions, and wizards. I can make clothes, weapons, and armor if I would like to. W00t. Put my toreador-honed skills to good use. today I made A) platinum Marcel-ed hair, B) a martini with olive,, and yesterday I made a cigarette holder with a lit Balkan Sobranie. So -- yeah -- I admit I'm fooling around. Tomorrow my clothes are in a fashion show, and getting things organised correctly and sent to Asri was a tedious task that took ages. I'm happy if I got it right finally, since the first two times I tried I had everything wrong. I'm just doing it... uh... to see what happens. It's not like slaying monsters, however.
A friend TPed to my house yesterday, and she was sad about a reaction some people had had to her when she spoke about her life. A shame. Would be nice if people could enjoy the things they like and leave others to enjoy the things THEY like, without passing judgement upon things about which they know nothing. Anyway she was so unhappy she has been walking around in an alt (another avatar). Incognito, as it were.
