Downsizing Yet Again . . .

It must be abundantly clear to all that I’ve been far from active in-world for some time. RL has been both busy, challenging and temperamental for quite some time. Lately, it has been a little too much of each of these things. Read more…

Just a quick update

As it has been nearly an entire year since my last post, I felt it necessary to give a brief update…. Read more…

This is most disconcerting…

I mentioned my issues with performance and, noting that I do not experience these issues anywhere else on the grid including in my skybox, I was told that this is an improvement over where they were before the changes. Odd, then, that I did not experience these issues before the changes and they occur consistently now that the changes are in place. I think I need to find a new location to move to. Read more…

Not much ado about anything…

Well, well, well. I went to my shop in Steam SkyCity to see the new changes to the infrastructure. Fairly nice, but… It seems that the entire sim is now completely bogged down for me. I don’t know if its me, the new infrastructure or some evil plot of the reverse vampires and the Rand corporation. I’m guessing the latter. Read more…

Anybody home…

Ok, it has been nearly a year since my last post. That clearly qualifies me as being remiss. Well, I’ve been busy… until recently. Read more…

I have a new blog (yet another!)

Since the beginning of time, or rather, since the beginning of this blog, I’ve tried to keep within character most of the time. There has been the odd occasion that I’ve veered off a little, such as my last rant entry. Well, I’ve decided that it is important to keep this blog in character as much as possible, yet I’ve always wanted to discuss other things on my mind. Things that interest me, make me happy or perhaps make me upset. Enter www.newbelius.com (yes, I’ve registered a domain name, whatever that is, for it…. That makes 10 for me now, I think).

The Internet is NOT the cause of all evil

<ooc>
Ok, this is very much out of character, but I could not resist but to comment on something I just read. It seems that some people are just unwilling to open their minds with respect to new technology. This closed-minded behaviour clouds their perception of facts and can cause them to spew trash on the pages (or, ironically, on the Internet) in the form of misinformed commentary. Read more…

My Newest Project – the meta.World

Lately, I’ve been pondering the existence of the metaverse. I’ve thought about the various worlds out there (SL, There, Active Worlds, IMVU, etc) and I wonder where we are headed. The concept is intriguing, but the implementations need work. All of them. Read more…

And gone . . . (no, not me!!)

It seems ironic that as soon as I mention that I will shut down my shops, I get a flurry of activity such that for the very first time since my in-world birth, I am self sufficient. Sales have increased and with the sale of the last of my land (and closure of my outlet shops) except for the 512m plot in Steam SkyCity, I am finally slightly better than breaking even. But something else happened that truly hit home and made a very big impact upon me. Read more…

The time has come

I knew that one day I would have to come to terms with the fact that sales have always been low, but lately, my sales have been nearly non-existent. Is it the global economy? Is it that my products merely suck? Is it the particular shade of green in my logo? I expect its a combination of a number of things. Read more…
