Pinoy Hideout

Pinoy Hideout (click here for a raw shot)

I went to a new sim, Pinoy Hideout, earlier today to explore and look around. The sim was designed by the talented Neva Crystall. The owner of the sim is Lovelykitten Resident and there is also a photo contest for those that like to explore and take images.

Even though I have a somewhat decent computer, it took me quite a long time to get it all to rez, and even in these images, you can see that some of the ground textures are not fully rezzed. This happens to me in lots of places.

Then I logged in and went there using SL GO and everything rezzed right away, with no issues. Isn’t it funny that a mobile app works faster than my computer? I don’t know, I must be doing something wrong in my settings.

Pinoy Hideout

SL GO has recently started a “Refer-A-Friend” program. Anyone can earn $10 for every referral who converts to a paid SL Go subscriber. This offer is only good for a limited time, until January 7, 2015. I thought I would sign up for this program and share my link with you guys, but then realized that whatever money I earn from this will probably be spent on new shoes for me. So I figured instead of doing that, I’ll share Draxtor Despres’ link. He says the money from this program will be put towards the weekly Drax Files podcast. If you’ve never heard the Drax Files Radio Hour podcast before, click over to the site now and have a listen to some of them. They are very informative and help me keep up to date on all the events in Second Life and throughout the tech world.

Draxtor also did a little ad for SL GO recently which features himself and his son…and a Torley Linden right at the end! It was rather amusing as he played on the stereotype that SLers are all anti-social and don’t go out anywhere. Also, he’s got some serious skills on the skateboard! Click over to check out the ad on youtube, also embedding it below.

Murder Mystery

A few months back I did a book meme where I talked about books that I love to read. I mentioned a lot of book genres that I’m interested in but one that I failed to mention are murder mysteries. I actually used to be completely addicted to Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie. I have […] Continue reading →

Freedom

All that’s left is solitude and the desires in my heart. I won’t be around for most of June because I’m going away to places I’ve never been before. I’ve been a mix bag of emotions so far this year (or perhaps always?) and I wanted a change. So I’m travelling across the ocean to […] Continue reading →

The Spring Season Challenge

(click here for raw shot) Tomorrow is April 1st and this month always reminds me of spring; probably because of the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” I thought this week would be perfect to do a spring challenge. Meme Instructions: Share a spring-themed picture and/or answer the following questions about the season. Don’t […] Continue reading →
