I enjoy taking snapshots in Second Life. What would you guys think if I posted images large enough to be used as desktop wallpaper now and then? Would you be interested in shots taken inworld, or do you spend too much time in Second Life as it is so when you close the application the [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye When I tell people about Zyngo it’s always the same reaction “oh I have never played that” and you can sense the apprehension. I then explain if you know how to play Bingo, playing Zyngo is a piece of cake. Just about every person I’ve gotten to try Zyngo returns to [...]
I used to roll my eyes at these kind of Second Life profiles but now I’ve made a game out of it. If I spot one now I laugh. Here are some typical profiles I find amusing. The Defensive Profile (Picture of scantily clad woman.) I hate griefers. Do not mess with me. Do not [...]
Over time RL loses stability. If you have SL for more than six months, at some point you’re going to have to reinstall RL from scratch. Contrary to popular belief you won’t have to reformat your RL. Back up your RL just to be safe. If everything goes smoothly you can reinstall RL by clicking [...]
The Beatles were missing their guitar player so I had to help them out. I mean, those poor Liverpool lads! It was a dirty job but somebody had to do it. I wore a tag above my head that said “Not George” just to make sure no one got confused. ;)
When I’m working on some stuff I don’t always want to logout of Second Life. I don’t like the humped over “afk” look though, and busy mode is not always appropriate. I used fliptitle for a while with the floating text above my head “AFK” or “I’ll be back” as an alternative, but some people [...]
Skin Lotus has some great skin for sale at lower than average prices, but they also have some free ones available. Do not let the fact that it is free put you off. This is better than some skin I’ve paid good lindens for, and there are a couple of free shapes as well. I [...]
Trying to fix some things here, so this site may look a bit crazy. Comments were not working, and there were some coding errors to deal with. Also to alleviate confusion from now on if you see hyperlinks on this site they will lead to other pages on SLFix.com or elsewhere on the web. I [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye John Lennon “the Eggman” lay like this a long time. We thought he was drunk at first then worried he might be dead. I took a snapshot and noticed Jesus in the background coming to escort him to avatar heaven—but wait, that’s not Jesus. That’s Lennon John, the other John Lennon [...]
It is said that ignorance is bliss. As a n00b in Second Life one rarely thinks of the people they meet as being alts of someone they know. We generally go around being happy wide-eyed n00bs. Then one day we see that not only is it possible to have more than one avatar, but it’s [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye Second Life John Lennon aka “the Eggman” disappeared from Second Life for a while but was recently spotted in Liverpool dancing around and then later at Dear Prudence Rock Club talking to . . . Dear Prudence. The Eggman aka “Timothy Falta” aka “DJ Timothy Falta” aka “that guy who looks [...]
These are the new skeleton shirts available at Subculture. Three in a pack. Richard, Shauna, and Toastie are not included in the purchase price. I just had to post this picture because it makes me laugh. If you’re curious about the flaming hat Toastie is wearing it’s called the Spirit of Jazz hat and is [...]
When you’re new to Second Life you start out with a default or “n00b” avatar, but you’ll probably want to change this to make yourself more original and presentable. This is where shapes, skins and hair come in. What is a shape? A shape is the physical features your avatar has. This is everything from [...]
I discovered Little Town Women’s Clothing in a mall and followed a landmark to their main store. So many of their dresses and skirts are to my taste. Actual sleeves! The clothes are pretty and the prices very good. I was impressed that nice boots and shoes come with their already reasonably priced outfits. I [...]
This is not an art gallery, this is a Tart Gallery. It is owned by ByrneDarkly Cazalet and keywords for it are “pop, paintings, pin-up, girly, lowbrow art gallery, RL artists, comic, urban, and dark.” I like some of the pop art. If you’re in the mood to visit an art gallery put this on [...]
Subculture has not been officially launched but there are a few items on the wall. One is a Union Jack sleeveless shirt for 80 Lindens. If you’re feeling lucky you can try for one in the Grim Reaper Crane game over by the DJ booth. I was sneaky and put one in there.
Contributed by Shana Skye What is a SLURL? A SLURL is the Second Life equivalent to a URL, being a link or landmark to where you want to go in Second Life. A SLURL is handy if you want to send an IM to a group of people to tell them a location. They can [...]
All right it’s a bit of a joke to call it the SLFix.com Headquarters because that sounds so official and important. Actually, the headquarters consist of a desk inside a run down urban blight building; and yes, I live upstairs with bunnies and bunk beds. There’s a real life picture of me on the wall. [...]
The Naonao Museum has a wonderful collection of classic art. I spent quite a bit of time looking at three floors worth of paintings. Naonao’s can be enjoyed as a gallery to stroll through, but if you’re interested in adding a bit of the culture to your Second Life home you can purchase the paintings [...]
