Tuesday Tidbits

tidbit-tuesdayIt’s only Tuesday?

*Sigh*

This week is taking forever already.

A few tidbits for you:

⇒  What’s the meanest thing someone’s ever said to you on social media?  Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme is all about the haters.

I recently came across this image and I think it sums things up pretty well:

InternetDickwad

⇒  The latest Drax Files was about my favorite SL artist, Whiskey Monday.

Check it out:

⇒  Canary Beck wrote a post about a style make-over guide for men in SL.

One of the first things she says is you need at least $8,740L to complete this look.

Say what?!

Now, I appreciate the post, because there are lots of guys who don’t have a clue where to start.

And it’s a ‘ground-up’ build, including skin/shape, etc.

But $8000L?

That seems expensive.

Or is it just me?

⇒  Ciaran Laval reported that Premium Members (that’s me, yay!) will now be able to receive 50 offline IM’s, rather than the previous 25 limit.

Now, my offlines go to email, so it probably won’t be as big a deal to me as other members, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Something useful to go along with your premium membership!

⇒  Crossing my fingers that LL and OnLive will work something out and do a package deal (as Jo Yardley suggested) and bundle premium membership with an SLGo subscription.

Now THAT I would find useful!

⇒  Caitlin Tobias wrote a post about her recent issues using the official SL viewer.

Clothes disappearing, inventory lost (the WHOLE thing, not just certain items!), etc.

She can’t use Firestorm (which I looooooovvveeee), so she ended up trying Singularity and then the Alchemy viewer (which I’ve never heard of before).

So I got to wondering – what viewer do you use, and why?

Is there one you’ve tried and absolutely hated and why?

Feeling Inspired

The last few days have been rather chaotic for me, something I detest.

I’m a planner – I want everything laid out and ready to go. 😀

So when plans change at the last minute, or people are, you know, people, I sometimes find it extremely frustrating.

I have to take a deep breath and remember, ‘Not my circus, not my monkeys.’ 😛

I think I survived the chaos, and this morning I was feeling inspired.

I have become addicted to taking photos now that I can play around with shadows and windlights.

I’ve been visiting all kinds of places, looking for good locations to shoot, for interesting art, and just generally exploring.

Whiskey Monday is one of my favorite SL artists.  I love her dark, yet hopeful, view of the world.

She was granted an LEA sim and I eagerly await her posts saying she has a new build up to explore.

I went and took some shots today – I hope they turn out as well as I want them too!

And since I neglected to post a LOTD yesterday, I put on an outfit and went exploring for that as well.

I find I am loving having an excuse to play dress up and wear all those things that usually just sit in my inventory.

I am trying to go through some of my older outfits first, so that I can box them or throw them away if necessary.

It’s amazing how much stuff you can acquire in 5+ years. 😛

I’d better get busy!
