I spent some time setting up the pavilion and things for the New West show. I'm not finished. I couldn't terraform so I built a base. Actually, I first built a reflecting pavilion in a pool of water in Goguen, but chucked it out as there's not room for reflections. Hmmm... well that gives me another idea. Anyway, in Goguen someone's fireworks launcher came dropping into my build letting of fireworks. I checked the owner and shouted, "X stop being a jerk." Immediately he said, "WTF I was in my house." I ignored him. He came over and said, "Are you the ass who called me a jerk?" I explained that I was just trying to build, and his fireworks all over my build (inside, outside, wiggling around, etc.) was making it hard. To me it had looked like he was manipulating the fireworks launcher from afar to annoy me. He said nothing and left.
Ed and I ran around Relay for Life - backwards, always backwards - when someone spoke to us, asking if we'd donated money. I said yes and left, feeling annoyed. Ed told him he was broke, so the man gave him 97L, which Ed refused, explaining he is an alt and the main account had already donated. I asked, "Who is he - the donation police?" Although I gave money weeks ago, I can think of a lot of reasons why someone might not be able to donate, and even more reasons why it is none of anyone else's business.
I have no right to be cranky as it isn't 100 degrees today.
I saw a Second Life name, Didikay somebody, and it took up short as I hadn't heard that word - Didikai - a tinker - gypsy - in a long time.
Unmanipulated snapshot from SL - our snapshot interface just changed, giving different and more options, but having a major couple of head-scratchers in the brilliant flash and full-screen-preview. We don't like those things. Someone on the forum said the flash woke his wife up. It's been described as "seizure-inducing." The freeze-the-entire-screen is odd, and not good at all for rapid screenshotting for animated GIFs or to show progressive movement.
