I arrived in Second Life early last May. Learning to build was my first priority - and for a long time my only priority. Luckily I've figured out that the learning curve is endless and taking care of a few other things would be a good idea. My neighbours will tell you it took me 3 months to do something about my AV - obviously I wasn't too worried about the fashion police........or my neighbours' sensibilities.
So a bit about me:
- I'm not in my dotage ...... but I'm definitely past the "coy, big boobs, cute" phase of life.
- My rl children all have four legs - 2 cats, 2 dogs.
- I like to garden in rl - so started with that in SL.
- I find it incredible and amusing that we buy and sell pixels. Everytime I start to get wound up about the business side of SL I hear a friend's voice say "they're just pixels".
- The first time I used Gopher on a Mac to access a computer on the other side of the world - I was enthralled. What I'm doing today is pure Science Fiction.
- I think it's way too easy to buy land - which must be why I keep doing it.
- Got myself a brand new video card - and now I can use Windlight. Logged on the other morning to this scene:
- Now I just need to learn to take good photo's :)
- Have been very lucky with my SL neighbours - they're kind, supportive, funny and adventurous.
- Was working in my garden the other morning and two newbies were sitting there having a chat. Heard one say to the other "I believe we change a lot between the ages of 16 and 20." Decided that an older, more mature voice might be welcome.
