So we’ve understood (or at least attempted to) SL. We’ve got ourselves an avatar and now we are standing at the info hub!! Haaaaawwwww what is this place and why can’t I move???
Chances are you are lagging the hell out!! Now lag and typo’s are the way of life in SL. You have to be fluent in typonese and you sure as hell need to learn to handle lag with a smile. So you ask, what the f*** is lag eh?
Lag is a common word meaning to fail to keep up or to fall behind. In real-time applications, the term is used when the application fails to respond in a timely fashion to inputs. Now that is what Wiki has to say. The way I’d describe it is, if you read your chat 5 mins after you type it, or you press the “up arrow” key to move forward and you wait for your avatar to move only for it to land it a bush some 5 mins later, you are lagging!!!!
Fear not, info hubs are usually laggy anyways. Go on click on the search button on the bottom row of the screen. Go to the “Places” tab and search “club”…pick one from the search results and “teleport”. Yay!! you’ve officially used your SL super power!
Go on…..click around, search etc etc.
Tip: Search Shekhawati and come on over, we are usually there doing some non sense or the other. If you happen to sneak in when we aren’t, be sure to join our group and keep an eye out for activity at our end!
So after all what is SL (Second Life)????
The usual conflict of opinions arises from the fact that to a certain half of the large populace, SL is merely a game. A way to unwind, nothing different from the likes of World of Warcraft, Runes of Magic and the likes. The other half will strongly oppose this view of second life. To them it is about creativity, about learning, a constant education, a place to meet friends old and new.
There is also this other group of people who have business interests within SL and take it very seriously. Being the owner and creator of successful stores requires a whole lot of dedication. I’ll gladly admit I have no such dedication. but hey I have tried my hands at a lot of stuff, I just never last at any one thing for long.
So what is it to me? Its definitely a game, but I remember that the person behind the avatar is human just like me. Of course, I’m not perfect, however I do try my best to not knowingly hurt anyone on there. Somehow every feeling is amplified 10 folds in SL, so it is best to keep things simple….not always easy believe me. And therefore you will find huge “No Drama” signs all over the place, in clubs, on people’s profile, etc etc…..problem is…no one is drama free. You can try your best to stay clear of it, but it will still brush past you tainting you in its color.
Anyways….in all its beauty and its every flaw, SL is a great place to be. You meet crazily amazing people and time just about whizzes past without you knowing.
Ahhh….have you created your avatar?? Good!! Look at the next post, for where you are headed next.
So I’m back again!! This time with the photographs of the birthday gifts I received. I promised to continue with my SL story after this post, although I will not promise that there won’t be other interruptions!! The day to day can sometimes be quite intriguing! So here goes:
The red shoes, the hair, the clothes….all gifts and I love each one. The green dress ofcourse was a gift to myself….its the most beautiful outfit I’d seen and I totally love how my avatar looks wearing it. Very elegant if you ask me.
Oh click on the picture to see it larger. Next post will be a continuation from my 1st post
I did initially plan that I would make this a chronicle of my experiences in SL for the last 3 years, but the party my friends threw for me on the occasion of my birthday, forces me to take a detour..skip a few years ahead in time and describe that before going back to my SL story. I am beginning to think that these will be a regular things (the skip aheads lol) too.
So I celebrated my 29th birthday yesterday. While RL day was quite normal, my SL party simply blew my mind. I didn’t really expect much in terms of a party, just a few people coming together but the party was spectacular. The place was decked up, “happy birthday tunes played over and over, friends new and old all gathered together and we had one of those crazy events where the homos came out of the closets (lol ok thats an exaggeration). The party was great. We had DJ Sameer Hyx, DJ Viky Aura and DJ Cronus Parx spin some real great tunes, while the folks danced and talked gibberrish and well a perfect recipe for a great evening. It was a good 4 hours of fun and frolic.
I got some amazing gifts too and I will put of pictures of me in my gifts in the next post. Thsi post I have pictures of the actual event itself
