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…

New products just released

Although times have been difficult, I have been madly working on a few large projects as well as a couple that have been in the queue for far too long. While working on the large projects, I have spent some relaxing time creating three new clocks and one new skydiving lift. First the clocks. Read more…

Two down and one to go!

Dare I say that the sale of both the monastery and the cottage have taken place. Shortly after posting the advertisements, I received an IM stating interest in the monastery by a friend. At the same time, another had mentioned interest in the cottage. Within minutes, the cottage had been sold and later in the evening, the friend, who by then had managed to arrive in world, purchased the Monastery. Read more…

More Rental Rights for sale

It seems that RL has taken its toll to a much greater extent than I had anticipated. I thought I could weather the storm, but the storm still continues unabated. To that end, I find that I must detier a little further. This time, I’m selling both my cottage and monastery in Steam SkyCity. Read more…

Rental Rights For Sale

It all started one day when looking for Victorian Steampunk paraphernalia, I stumbled upon New Babbage. I was quite taken by the land’s slightly darker vision of steampunk from that of Caledon. I sat and waited until time came that I could afford a property and that one would come available. That day came and I became the proud owner of a plot within Babbage Palisade. Read more…

Animation: I’m disheartened

For many months, I’ve been trying to find an animator to create a few animations for a particular project. I’ve had a number that have promised work, went away and when I tried to contact them to find the status, never heard back. The latest is the last straw. Read more…

New projects coming up (including a photo contest!)

Although RL is busier than I thought it could possibly be, I have decided to embark on a couple new projects that should ultimately take up all my remaining time. One of these projects I shall briefly discuss here and the other will have to wait until I have more of the details in order. Read more…

Judge not lest ye be judged. . . Ok, judge.

In my last posting, I briefly mentioned the wonderful build that Eladrienne Laval and Kheph777 Enoch created in the Rezzable Garden of NPIRL Delights. I had been there to visit a couple days ago, but in all my infinite wisdom, managed to take exactly ZERO snapshots! Can you believe it? I was awe struck. Today I managed to rectify that situation as I popped in-world this morning with my view camera on its stand. Read more…

I think I’m out of my mind . . .

In one very real sense, everyone in-world is out of their mind. We have consciously transferred our minds, however temporary, into our avatar existence. How we do that and what we become during this period of transference is completely up to us. It is our world and our imagination. Read more…

I’m dreaming of a dystopian, Dickensian world. . .

Recently, I was chatting with a couple friends and I expressed my idea to create a new region in-world. The idea is to create a Dark Victorian Steampunk sim. You see, I love Caledon, but it can be a little too clean for me at times. I like the grimy atmosphere presented within a Dickensian world. I like a little dystopia with my afternoon tea, thank you very much. I like unfettered speculative technology that is explainable in a semi-plausible fashion. I like evil, mad science. Read more…
