Mwahahaha - a message on the LL blog said, in part, "Wondering why the grid is still down after the update? I’ve been asked to assure everyone we aren’t running around in world sitting in your chairs and playing Tringo."
We all know "sitting in your chairs" should be replaced by "trying out yer poseballs." Heh.
After deciding not to submit to Motorati I went ahead and did it anyway last night - only cut my idea in half and expected nothing at all to happen. I was surprised to get an email this morning from the coordinator: "your Motorati idea IS GENIUS!" Heh. Nice ego boost, anyway. It will be fun to do. He wondered if I'd be selling ice creams and things but I said they should be free - and I'd make some souvenirs (like cups and saucers, T-shirts, postcards perhaps) and sell them for 10L or something, just so there's a gift shop flavour.
Spent some time running around Uru Online -- now that Enjah is in it seems more interesting. We haven't hooked up yet but we will. Since the beta has been expanded now more things are possible, I reckon. I spent most of the time trying to remember what I had figured out in offline Uru - which I never got into much but certainly enjoyed some aspects of, including collecting mass quantities of books. I went back and watched the hologram Yesha but although I remember getting goggles or something in one of the bedrooms I didn't see that. I couldn't remember how to jump, but I figured that out and also discovered First Person. Annoyingly the audio was set to mute by default - I had to unmute even though I'd never muted it. It makes me feel strange that it's D'ni since, of course, it's not Dine' - although it starts out in the American Southwest. That has always seemed really odd to me.
