Post 1100 it says - I certainly know how to babble.
I woke up, etc., and while the coffee was squeezing itself out of the espresso-maker I logged into the preview grid for a moment. I got an IM from Racer, who asked me how I liked it, and I said there were lots of interesting things like MOVING ATTACHMENTS but that I didn't like the new shiny (well, no one does - it would be good as an addition to, but not instead of, the current shiny). I only read about moving attachments yesterday on the forum - if I would learn more about scripting than just playing around with existing scripts I'd be able to do something cool I'm sure. He hadn't heard before, but immediately, I'm sure, had a million ideas -- and he has the knowledge to implement them.
Once I was at a snail race listening to Racer calmly and humbly help someone, and repeating the same things over and over, and sorting out people who had complaints ("I would've won but the check point said I missed it!"). I thought, "He has got to be the nicest person in the universe." Then I thought that Second Life has many really patient, helpful, humble people. It does! ---CRAP WARNING!!--- The virtual world distills the essence* of a human exchange down to the minimum -- as it it expressed in our tap-tap-tap on the keyboards across the world. Still, SOMETHING comes through - something humans are sensitive enough to pick up on. The choice of words... everything in an exchange - give a clear picture of - not the outside of a person but the inside, non-physical essence at that moment. ---CRAP WARNING!!---
Well, and Racer is the nicest person in the universe, too.
