Lawnmowers in SL?

While spending time with a good friend Ginger this evening I noticed the beach grass was a bit high:

Ginger snuggles

Seems Go has been pretty busy with the grass seed and fertilizer out here. Do they make a scripted lawnmower in SL? Riding mower for me of course. Go can use a push mower :).

A full house for Sunday evening’s listener party! From left to right: Razzap Snookums (in his rarely seen female space pirate avatar), Ravishal Bentham, Aribella Lefleur, Crap Mariner, GoSpeed Racer, Grizzy Griswold, Feline Slade, & Alidar Moxley. Off camera is Kanomi. We are all crossing our fingers here in anticipation of KONA Radio being added to I-Tunes! Hopefully it gets picked up!

Lets get real. 750 Prims and 10 avatars max. What a  load of horsesh*t. Sure, 750 prims will garner you a nice lighthouse and a bunch of rocks and trees but the egregious part is the 10 avatar limit. In my 2-3/4 years in SL I spent a lot of time associated with the sailing community. A 10 avatar limit to a sim is not going to cut it. A large race and or regatta can have more than 10 avatars in a given sim at any time. The last damn thing you want is to have participants bounce off a sim boundary because there are too many avatars in a sim at once. I know for a fact several Lindens have watched races in the past and know how many people can be involved.

The sailing and other vehicle themed estates will still have to shed voids as they would no longer be as attractive to even renters/buyers.  In my experience perhaps 4 voids can be supported by 2-3 full sims if the residents don’t mind paying a bit extra to fund the void’s cost. It gets dicier after that as fluctuations in occupancy cuts into the void fund. A way around that is to rent or even sell voids to cover their cost. Provided enough free prims are left open for sailors and scripts are kept in check it all works out. This crippling of the voids will still have a deleterious effect as it will drastically reduce the amount of voids an estate can afford. As voids get dropped sims will have to be moved at a cost, further taxing the pockets of the sim owners.

This is still a no win situation. Sailing may not die, but it will be effectively crippled.

Sooner later it finds you. That certain someone who makes you smile, makes you feel special. That certain someone who you can make feel good about themselves. It’s a happy place. A place I am determined to stay:)

Relaxing on the deck with Luna

Sunday was a rather sad day as the Hukilau / Rosewood community marked the passing of a dear friend and loved person. Lacey Lovell / Lory Paine passed away in RL a few weeks ago and she will sorely be missed. Lacey was a very kind, loveable person who was always there to help. She was always kind to me and you could always count on her to really care about how you felt. Many of you Hukilau alumni knew Lacey pretty well and will never forget her. Lacey took a break from SL for a few reasons and came back as Lory Paine. She was well known to many in the Dublin sims as a fan of music. When GoSpeed would guest DJ there Lory would always come and invite her friends.

Lacey / Lory, you were loved by many here in SL and we will always cherish your memory. God Bless you, I know you are in a better place.
