Yesterday there was a pile-on on the preview grid - and I think those are fun so I quickly concluded my talk with a custom-outfit customer on the main grid and ran to Siva as fast as I could (had to download another new version - I downloaded 3 or 4 yesterday, which means resetting the idiotic Norton firewall each time as it just... flips out if I don't. Tch, stupid Norton.). We had to do various things to try to catch bugs, like IMing as individuals and in groups, teleporting about, offering teleports and landmarks (offering TPs was broken), buying things (I bought a steambot suit) and buying things to give to someone else (I bought an elaborate armored suit and gave it to a fellow I was talking to who was who-knows-where in meatspace, but wasn't a native English speaker), fly across sim borders (there has been a closed sim for ages and I just avoided it thinking it was for secret Linden Doings, however, flying avatars piled up on that sim edge like flies on a window screen and it came to light that it was closed off for no reason), and relog multiple times. I ran into SarahB's brother in Goguen Sandbox - he a dragon, me a steambot. Upon relogging we both lost all our attachments and were strange dark-colored beings. Drat - I'd better go and recreate that as I'm sure Looper will say, "What did you look like?" Here's a picture I took yesterday:
Here's one I took a minute ago showing me looking as I looked after relog wearing the steambot when all the attachments fell off, and the righthand side shows the steambot as it looks with attachments in place. Left side: under the suit, right side: suit in place. For SLers: this is just boring to you, I know - I'm showing it for RLers who have no clue what I'm talking about. Does it make things clearer or more murky to them? I have no clue.
