Yesterday Graz hacked into Moonletters HQ with a monkey wrench and wrote an article for the site. The cheek of it! Since he went to all that trouble I figured I’d “accidentally” leave the door unlocked and let him write something again soon.
Shhhh! You ain’t seen me right? It’s 3.30am and I’ve circumnavigated Shauna’s security systems and broken into Moonletters HQ using a sponge and a rusty spanner. And here I sit at my old desk hammering away at my dusty old typewriter (Shauna always refused to buy me one of those new fangled word processors. “Typewriters [...]
Mesh in Second Life can be great adding realism to buildings, clothes, and even avatars. It often lowers the prim count of objects too, which is good for land owners. Once I was actually able to see mesh (I was on a viewer that couldn’t for a while) I became a fan of it in [...]
When I first entered Second Life it was an exciting magical new world to explore. My only experience with virtual worlds before it included the game Runescape and a place called Cybertown — and neither can be compared to Second Life. I wanted to see everything when I was new, experience everything, and find out [...]
Hi everyone. I have decided to break the extended hiatus I put Moonletters on. Though I did sneak a couple of things in during this hiatus (I know, that’s like cheating the hiatus) I was never really “back” so to speak. I must say, this is the longest I’ve ever taken a break from Moonletters. [...]
**Warning: This post has nothing to do with Second Life. Just needed a first life musing, so feel free to skip this and view it as a space filler until I write something later.** The Kilns Some of you may know that I admire the late writer C.S. Lewis. I like him so much, in [...]
Things are easy for me in Second Life. I have an enviable social life, an awesome wardrobe, I look how I want to and never feel self conscious, I rarely feel shy, and I never lack for lindens which come from my own earnings. I haven’t had to buy lindens for years since everything I [...]
The elections are over in the USA — thank goodness. Now things can get back to normal again in first life conversations, on facebook and, yes, even in Second Life. Those outside of the USA probably do not experience the political talk to the degree I have because though the election was somewhat interesting to [...]
It’s that time again. Every four years the USA holds an election for a new president and people go nuts. My facebook is filled with politics, people on both sides voicing strong opinions. Oh, all right.. Let’s be honest, here. They’re not “voicing strong opinions.” They’re tearing each other to shreds. Some have even started [...]
For most people, first life comes — well, first. Second Life is something people do for fun, to relax, or escape the mundane. Others who have more time on their hands or a limited means to get out in the “real” world, often spend more time virtually. For a long time this was the case [...]
Some of you may know I’ve moved to a new place recently. I’m still unfamiliar with the area I live in, and learning my way around. I use a Satnav wherever I go. Last Sunday I intended to find a church to visit, so I programmed an address into my Satnav. While driving out I [...]
If you’re a goth, every day is Halloween. For the rest of us it comes once a year. (Ok, if you’re a furry, neko or vampire in Second Life Halloween is also everyday. Still, you have to admit there’s something special about October 31.) When I was a kid I got ill almost every Halloween. [...]
Aside from a prison rapist, who finds this attractive?
I teleported to a place where a group of people sat around a camp fire. Some used text to chat, while others used voice. If I typed a comment to a person using voice, usually they did not notice because they weren’t paying attention to the text chat. At the other end were people who [...]
I got to be an extra in “The Rubbles” today, an upcoming film written and directed by Slate McLeod. The release date is possibly this week, though Slate asked not to be quoted on that. Filming does seem to be wrapping up though, and Moonletters will have a world premier — so stay tuned! Here’s [...]
First, I want to say that some of my best friends are women, and I think those of my own gender can be wonderful human beings. I’m just clarifying that in case one might accuse me of “disliking women” after reading this. Ok, I like most women. But I must be honest in saying that [...]
I went out exploring last night and came to a quaint little Korean store. It felt a bit laggy to me so I cammed outside and this is what I saw. Yes, that’s right. Self replicating prims bouncing around all over the place, covering the sim like a swarm of locusts. I have to wonder. [...]
This was in my Facebook feed. You’re supposed to choose the eight people who randomly show in your friend box, casting them in the order they appear left to right. I figured I’d nick this and make up my own list for Second Life. —– You are in a HORROR MOVIE Decides the creepy house [...]
A new study from Rice University reveals that women are twice as likely as men to use emoticons when texting. I’d say this holds true for text communication in Second Life as well. I don’t have the original messages to paste in, but my friend Jellie and I often have conversations that go entirely like [...]
In Second Life a griefer is someone who tries to inflict harm, chaos or distress onto other residents by various means. This could be by trying to crash a sim or by annoying people with repetitive shouting objects. A griefer is almost always anonymous and their attacks can be either random or deliberate. With a [...]
At times I’ve almost felt guilty for enjoying Halloween as I do, and have wrestled with the right or wrong of it since it falls into a “dark” category. I believe people need to follow their conscience on these things, but I have to admit that Halloween has always been a lot of fun for [...]
Science Daily recently ran an article entitled Whether We Like Someone Affects How Our Brain Processes Movement. I love how scientists do studies to come up with conclusions we already know. It made me think of this meme that’s been going around Facebook. Most of the people I know try not to dislike people, and [...]
When I was eight I became ill with scarlet fever. My temperature was so high I went to sleep and had incredibly weird yet vivid dreams I remember to this day. One of those dreams was of a place, and I saw it a few years later in an animated film by Tim Burton: The [...]
I usually shake my head when I visit somewhere that has a sign asking people to read and obey rules of a sim. Why? Because unless the place has a specific theme, dress code, or certain behaviour to be observed for roleplaying, most rules you find on notecards are kind of useless. They usually boil [...]
Found this on the wall in The Killing Moon pub. It was apparently put there by Graz Firecaster. I know this will only be funny to certain people, but had to include it anyway.
Recently I read an article by a minister of a church. I was on his website and thinking of giving the place a visit — until I read his article. He didn’t say anything terrible exactly, but his subject matter was the virtual world, something he didn’t seem too keen on. More than once he [...]
I placed adboards by Zorro the Bull in Moonletters town, and there have been legitimate ads put there. However, when it comes to my friends you can never know what you’ll see. For instance, one friend thought it would be great to put a picture of a woman’s bare bottom up. He didn’t want to [...]
Ever log into Second Life during a time zone you’re not used to? I have done so recently only to discover my friends are asleep, no one is around . . . and even the sky looks different. Moonletters can be like a ghost town then, but if a stranger does wander in they’re a [...]
Hi gang. I’ll be flying out again in first life very soon to Phoenix. The wi-fi has been good to me this week in Chicago, so hoping there will be more of that in the valley of the sun. See you all soon (Lord willing).
