The holiday season approacheth

You may have noticed a boatload of my new stuff is no transfer lately. This is for many reasons, mostly that people are bunch of slimey douchebags who deserve to have their genitals rot off, but I digress. None of my fine blog readers are douchebags. You're all fine outstanding citizens with fantastic taste.

Anyway, to help people out who wish to give gifts from GK that are no transfer, I'm going to try to box all my shit up pretty and put it up on ONREZ this weekend (HOPEFULLY.) Also for trans items I'll leave some copyable present boxes out at my shop.

My Onrez Store.

I'm not putting individual hairs on there cause I really don't love money that much, but I might stick fatpacks up there. Yeah I know, that sucks, but less so for me as it means I don't have to box a bajillion individual hairs and take a bajillion snapshots.

So this means to give no transfer items you need an Onrez account. I prefer Onrez over SLX because visually SLX looks like dog vomit, where Onrez is shiny. Front end development is important and SLX needs to learn that. (*coughs*Immafrontenddeveloper*coughs*)

If anyone has any suggestions that might make their gift giving holiday nightmare a little less crummy, let me know!

Please Vote for this!

Nick works with me and said that if I get loads of people to vote and he wins that he'll give me an ipod. I don't really want an ipod, but I do want Nick to win. So if anyone out there could vote, that would be awesome.

It's a contest on Crestock, which is a stock photo company. You have to register to vote, but it's a really short process and you don't have to actually sign up for any plans.

Cat Scratch Xmas tree

Some may remember this from last year. It's pretty much the same thing. I made a swatting animation and added that to it and there is the old scratching post animation. The star is now sculpted instead of alpha textures.

It is 36 prims and transfer, so you can give it as a gift.

You can get this at my main store in Koreshan until I ask around about my prim counts at the other shops. Counting is hard. ;_;

Koreshan is on the crappiest server ever

I know most people think that about their servers on SL that preform poorly. I get the mental image of the staging server we used at Staples, which was a door stop for the IT department and no one in the room knew what it did so if they needed to say, charge their cell phone for a bit, they'd happily cut the power from it.

Last weekend the rolling restart ended up cutting Koreshan off from the rest of the grid. You could still get there, but after that there was no game functionality you could do (receive items, IMs, TP, attach, upload, build.)

So last night the sim was offline for hours along with 2, 000 other doorstops, coasters and things people can rest their wet umbrellas on.

So this sucks. There isn't anything we can do about service that we haven't already tried. Draconic contacted them about our lag and they told us we were just upgraded to a grade 4 server and that server "has a bug." No estimate of when they'll fix the bug or if they even bother while they work on their havok, windlight and absolutely retarded search engine (well it is! Seriously, they need to use a google wysiwyg instead of making proper fucking queries themselves? There are whole companies who specialize in search engine technology they can commission to help them with this! Not only that the only thing they could have actually fucking done that's helpful is a search by multiple keyword or heirarchy searching, which they didn't do. Fucking morons. Get a fucking usability expert over there for god's sake.)

And I fully realize a developer and the people who work on the servers are 2 different skillsets and it's not like you can say "Hey Buddy, today we work on server flowcharts! No more windlight for you!" But you can say decrease your developer staff and increase your tech people to make your goddamn game stable. I plan on buying a sim next year, I really don't want to be flushing $$ down the toilet.

*whew* So after "it has a bug!" we got "your textures are too big, everything needs to be 256x256" Since fucking when? I can only really speak for me and trinitee, but everything we use are 512 or 256, which has always been the standard. If everyone is using those sizes then they are absolutely full of shit and we are getting the standard "ah my computer died!" "Well did you try plugging it in?" answer. Did you even look at the sim? Oh yes.. while you were sleeping.

And you can't really get pissed at a linden customer service rep cause they are like 3 people down the line of the person who actually prioritizes getting shit actually done. I image their priority list is like this:
1) get new users
2) improve game stats
3) write paper on how we are cool so we get new users
13892834) fix that grade 4 server bug.

Which I'm sure is after polling staff about whether they prefer pepsi or coke in the vending machines and if they should go to PJ O'hoolihans or R.J Shenanigans for drinks after work.

I was hoping I'd feel a little better writing this and I do. But I'm still going to log into a busted crap server and that still sucks.

I'm starting a little freebie area near the entrance of my main store. Everything will from this day out be tapped to the wall.

New webhosting

So my old webhost sucked so much dick I had to stop using it. I got a little angry with them too so they immediately cancelled my account and silly ol' me didn't back up my files. OOPs.

Dah well. I will be using this boring layout until I most to host my blog on a proper website. I mean I'm a developer for godsake, why the fuck would I use Blogger?

New: Tote Bag

So here is a bag I made that is available at my main store and all the other locations when I get home from work today.

This bag is scripted with 9 texture styles. It has a sculpted skull and Xbones pin and it's own custom kitty qee as all my new stuff has had. Also, there are 2 arm animations with this. a bent arm and a straight arm or you can chose to use neither. It's all controlled in the touch menu.

Sorry peoples, it's copy only. Rampant theft is leading me to this. Those who have a problem with the permissions, we can work out of a deal where I'll give you a transfer or modifiable item, if you track down the IP of all offenders who have remade my items, stolen my textures or scripts and then go to their RL homes and punch them multiple times in the face and genitals.

So what I'm saying is, you have to just live with the lack of permissions. I'm tired of swatting people on the nose and saying BAD! And them responding "waht u meen u haf psd. Nooo I mayk dis ting. nocopie. i teel peeble u steel coz i mayk furst." Because I'm 98% sure that one day I'll be sitting there at the computer, heart pressure increasing from talking to person who is either foriegn or 6yrs old and*BOOM* embolism pops in brain and DEAD. Who will take care of my cat? Not my boyfriend for damn sure.

What language is that? It's not English.

See this.

That's the exact same language all of my angry customers use. :O And some of the non-angry but pants on head retarded ones.

Hilton Tries to Help Drunk Elephants

Posted: 2007-11-13 10:18:03
GAUHATI, India (AP) - Paris Hilton is being praised by conservationists for highlighting the problem of binge-drinking elephants in northeastern India.

Activists said a celebrity endorsement such as Hilton's was sure to raise awareness of the plight of the pachyderms that get drunk on farmers' homemade rice beer and then go on a rampage.

"The elephants get drunk all the time. It is becoming really dangerous. We need to stop making alcohol available to them," the 26-year-old socialite said in a report posted on World Entertainment News Network's Web site. Her comments were picked up by other Web sites and newspapers around the globe.

Last month, six wild elephants that broke into a farm in the state of Meghalaya were electrocuted after drinking the potent brew and then uprooting an electricity pole.

"There would have been more casualties if the villagers hadn't chased them away. And four elephants died in a similar way three years ago. It is just so sad," Hilton was quoted as saying in Tokyo last week. She was in Tokyo to judge a beauty contest.

Her publicist couldn't immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.

Hilton promised to improve her bad-girl image after she completed a jail term in June for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

She announced plans to do charity work in Rwanda, but the trip was postponed until next year.

Sangeeta Goswami, head of animal rights group People for Animals, told The Associated Press: "I am indeed happy Hilton has taken note of recent incidents of wild elephants in northeast India going berserk after drinking homemade rice beer and getting killed."

"As part of her global elephant campaign, Hilton should, in fact, think of visiting this region literally infested with elephants," Goswami said.

Another conservationist said elephant alcohol abuse was just a symptom of the real problem.

"Elephants appear on human settlements ... because they have no habitat left due to wanton destruction of forests," said Soumyadeep Dutta, who heads Nature's Beckon, a leading regional conservation group.

"A celebrity like Hilton must focus her attention on this fact," Dutta said.


Yes, you read correctly. Drunk Elephants. CARD ELEPHANTS PEOPLE! Not me.
I may look like I'm 14, but me drunk doesn't involve rampages. Mostly having to pee often and falling asleep on the floor.

That is just fantastic.

Update on my last post.

After a night of dealing with Koreshan being disconnected from the main grid asset server hell, guess what I log into other than notecards of missing inventory?

a) A pony of my very own called Moonbeam with big fuzzy feet
b) $L100K in profits. First we get the underpants. Then Profits.
c) An invite to a fashion show I already said I didn't want to go!

If you guessed C, you are correct.
I've talked to friends, and apparently model agency spam is annoying everyone, just the difference between myself and my friends is they are smart enough to mute people.

Just to make this PAINFULLY CLEAR

I do not participate in fashion shows. This extends from being in them to going to them.

No invites, no notecards, no I don't need models. I am just not interested. The past month this whole fashion show fad has become more hardcore with people pestering me about it. It even says in my profile I'm not interested, but no one reads profiles. If you want me to right off the bat love you, just read the damn profile. I can get testimonials from people on how much sweeter a person I am if they've done as little as acknowledge something from my profile when they start that initial conversation.

Why no interest in fashion shows? Isn't "no!" enough anymore? I'm not a fashion designer, I'm a content creator. I make crap. I harbor no false pretenses that I have a farking clue about fashion and frankly beyond "this looks good on me" I don't care about fashion trends. There are many people who can be considered "fashion designers" in SL and none are named Noam Sprocket. And given a choice between seeing a SL fashion show or playing Psychonauts for an hour and/or having a bowel movement, the fashion show will aways lose. I'm just not digging it. It's my prerogative and I'm positive there are loads of people who would cream their jeans over it, but I am not in that demographic. Stop marketing to me.

Not that my target audience of pesterers would go so far as to read my blog before contacting me, but I need to get this off my chest.

Also, following things are dumb:
1) Assuming I go asscrazy excited over things that have to do with nekos. I'm a neko. Whoopity doo. It has been over a year of nekodom. Already been there done that. Ker-snore.
You want my attention? Aliens. Hot sexy aliens. "You're having a sexy tentacle alien party?! I'M SO THERE!" is what I'd say.

2) Calling me: Girl, sweetie, baby, pookie, pal, pallie, buddy, Cutie, sweets and kiddo. Unless you are my mom (and I don't even like it when she does it) lay off. Noam. It's 4 letters. It's like the word Moan. If you are into cybering, I'm sure your familiar with writing the latter and know where all 4 buttons are on the keyboard.
I know I'm wasting time, but I named my av after Noam Chompsky. Most people who know who that is don't call strangers "darlin" so suggesting that people think of him when they see Noam, is pretty pointless.

Again, this is just word puke to make me feel better and I am fully aware that none of this will reach my target audience. Tomorrow I will log into more modeling show invites, some repeats that I got the week before and said no to, but apparently "no" means "Maybe if you bug me more I'll cave ^_^ <3<3<3:D!!!!!11111111" and of course the sarcastic comments from people who actually read this blog trying to get my goat. :P
((why a goat? where the hell did that expression come from?))

Schmoops: Shoes for girls.

These are sculpted color scripted shoes. They are silly and I like them.

New Hair: Tumnus (Braids + hat)

Tumnus is based off some pictures I have of an anonymous Jrocker pictured below. If you know who that dude is, I will give you um um um... something.

This hair is like.. 90% sculpted. I didn't want to make a braid texture, so I made sculpted braids. I think it looks nice, but from far away since sculpts don't render until close on my settings it looks like dreads or hotdog links.
>_> well it does!
I still love it though. You can pick this up at Harajukubox, The Block and my main store in Koreshan.
