I has a friend named Crystyle. God is shitting on her financially. So I made her hair (RL picture coming soon) and other people made stuff too and she's going to get the lindens so her family doesn't have to start selling kidneys.
Follow up to the last post: Guess who is still selling (even more) of my shit?!!
At what point do they just ban the person?
Dude I work my ass off, wtf. This chick contributes NOTHING to the game.
*returns feeling less stabby.* This cookie is taking me to my happy place. It's a grumpy cookie. I love the grumpy cookie.
You know, it's not even like I'm saying OMG MY LIVELYHOOD IS THREATENED BY THIS! I don't care about it in a money way. I care about it in a "I fucking made it and you are taking credit, you fucking cocksucking douchebag! I hope you get face aids." way. Ok back to staring at the cookie.
I transfered this blog over to wordpress so I can host it myself and customize the layout better?
I have to redesign Bill's blog, that I also host, and while I'm looking through WP design sites for inspiration, I just saw an awesome layout that I'd really like to do on here, but Blogger is kinda being a douche.
Bill was on some 4chan thread saturday night where he found this animated gif. He proceeded to laugh from like 3am to.. what's today.. monday?
Tuesday Sept 23rd: The next in a series of bear related things.
It's the music that really makes me cry. If you haven't seen Wicker Man... uh good. Don't see it. I paid to see it in a theater instead of some good indie movie that was out at the same time, because my friend Cat and I couldn't convince the people we were with that even if we didn't know the plot, any movie that has Philip Seymour Hoffman in it would be better than a Nicolas Cage movie.
Crackfox is texture scripted just like Cani. It's script is a little laggy but I think it's worth the issues it has. At least it is until I get a better script.
This hair is loosely based on the below pictures. I couldn't really figure out how to do a fade in the hairline, so I was like hrmm.. braids. But then after like 4 days of fucking around I came up with what I have in the ad above. Guess how much Customer Service $10 a month buys you? None. They still have not responded to my issues yet beyond letting me know it's been transfered to the relevant area. Woopity.
If you have any other queries please contact us again.
Regards Darina LInden Lab Support
I upgraded. If they don't fix it, I'm going to... do nothing cause there isn't shit I can do. Is their customer service really worth $120 a year? If they fix my problem that will totally be worth the $9.95, but I'm downgrading as soon as they solve it.
My problem is that all rotation and movement scripts have stopped working on my PC. They will run on my laptop which is running the same OS, version and has the same specs as my PC, but 2 less crazy graphics cards and a little less ram.
In other non frustrating news: My new watch from Tokyoflash arrived yesterday. It's awesome except the band is too big for me. Bill is taking me to sears where he assures me that they can fix it.
I was playing with using the SL avatar obj mesh in Blender as a tool for building sculpts on. Um I'm still not good with it, but I think my next thing I do should be waaay better than when I tried it before without the mesh (I mean a coat I started last winter.)
Anyway the bottom part is optional. Not for all body types or AOs. It looks awesome on my AO though. WOOT WOOT.
I have like 5 more hoodies that I may release, I'm just working on texturing the prims right now.
Bill and I are watching Planet Earth on the huge TV since I bought the DVD boxset. There is a lot of footage about polar bears on that show, and most is basically about how because of global warming the life of the polar bear sucks. There was a video about a bear trying to attack a walrus because he was starving; he didn't even kill it, but it did injure him. The narrator said that the bear would probably die now because he was starving and injured.
At that moment I decided that if this whole web development career leads to nothing, I will quit my job and buy a helicopter and a harpoon and fucking kill walruses so polar bears can eat them. Seriously, fuck walruses. Polar bears > walruses.
And to get back to politics again, I read a comment on a political blog where some woman was calling out another for hating Palin for being a hunter and wanting polar bears off the endangered list and also being pro-life. The commenter said "so wait, you're against killing animals, but for killing babies."
That made me think. And my thoughts (probably unpopular) are this: feed babies to polar bears. :D There are so many more babies on Earth than polar bears. Seriously, fuck babies. Polar bears > babies.*
If you couldn't tell, I'm a bit passionate about polar bears. Just a lil.
*while I absolutely believe polar bears are better, I don't really want to feed babies to them. They have like no meat on them to sustain a bear through winter.
The downside of this as apposed to Muxtape, is you have to rely on skreemer and seeqpod instead of being able to upload the songs you want them to host for you. :/
But Muxtape was taken down by the RIAA. The most shitty part of that is the fact I can't even tell you how many albums I've bought because I found the artist on someone's muxtape playlist. The RIAA doesn't understand the internet. Yeah there are torrenters, but there are people like me and Brandon who BUY shit from emusic, amazon, itunes and on a rare occassion when none of the above have the stuff... an actual STORE. 50% of the music I listen to isn't even on torrents because it's like.. me and some other dude in like Russia dig it... and we both use Comcast and can't host torrents.
Because Comcast is GHEY. GHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY.
** UPDATE- I got a teacher. X3 A really really good one YAY!
If you give a man a fish, he gets to eat for a day and if you teach a man to fish he gets to eat.. more fish. Something... however that goes.
I NEED A VERY SMART SCRIPTER WHO WILL TEACH ME THINGS.
I've tried 2 classes in SL in the past 6 months and they teachers always kinda flake out. It's been my experience with all scripters that after like 3 or so months of awesome collaboration, something shiny comes along and they go away.
Since all I do IRL is write code, I really hate the thought of having to code during my free time. Last weekend I was playing with the handler for sculpt maps and map types on a pose ball script and Linden Script is pretty much like any other coding language. You have variables, you pass shit around, you act on things, blah blah blah.
If you bought that last belt, you'd have noticed that it spams the hell out of the channel AND for some reason it asks if you want to animate your avatar. I didn't make the script and I played with it all last night trying to reset the shit and reinstall it just to get the same annoying results. I need to stop relying on other people's scripts. They aren't good. They aren't mine and getting yelled at because they break in a way I don't know how to fix sucks bag-loads of dicks.
So, I'm thinking it's time I just learn this stuff. I know what I want my stuff to do and I know what is the best UI to accomplish it, as that's my freaking job outside of SL.
My roadblock is, where do you find a GOOD scripter to help teach you this stuff? I would learn on my own, but I want faster results. I will pay for classes. I'm not exactly beginner level because I know many other languages.
Does anyone know someone who teaches classes? Or knows a good way for me to find someone? Someone who isn't a flake.
"I pick up a fossil and say FOSSIL and if they still don't get it, I throw it right above their heads."*
I'm not going to get political or at least agenda political. I think I've only done that a couple times on here but mostly it's to STRESS that people should vote and pay attention to primaries. Primaries over, I frankly am not wicked excited about the candidates. It's probably not possible for there to be a candidate who would embody all that I'd like in a president because in general, having worked on one of the primary candidate's campaign for most of last year up until super tuesday, everything is so strategic that shit is just not that real.
In terms of the whole "flip-flopping" people make accusations about during campaigns, I heard my friend Phil once say (I think it was about republicans) that people don't care if you changed your mind as long as what you think now is what they want. When I first heard that I thought it was kinda shitty, but probably true. Now I'm watching all the debates and speeches and shit cause Bill is really into politics and I honestly couldn't care since my candidate** dropped out and DIDN'T get VP, but since I'm the only one actually registered to vote in my house (jesus I need to take the remote control away from him) my stance on shit lately is "I don't care what you thought last month, just tell me you want what I want now." Because it's so much worse to vote for someone who just fucking hates you or what you believe in. I'd so rather hear a half assed lie that panders to me.
Anyway.. after all that blah blah blah, onto the video:
I just got linked to this video of Matt Damon talking about McCain and Palin. I never liked his movies but I want to see them all now just because he said the following about Sarah Palin, (assuming McCain dies in office) "I really need to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4thousand years ago. That's important, I want to know that. I really do, because she's going to have the nuclear codes."
So yeah. I'm going to vote for Obama because Palin scares the shit out of me. I think that's a good enough reason to vote. That and half a day off from work. WOOOT WOOT!
Uh, sorry to any readers out there who don't believe in dinosaurs.
*from Lewis Black's standup.
** My candidate is only my candidate because his campaign hired my company to work at his HQ the whole time he was running for president and after being there for so long I got very attached. X3 But honestly if I wasn't into most of his politics I did think he would have rocked in terms of the economy and fucking douchey McGonnadieinoffice, didn't fucking chose him.
FUN READ: The forum gets funnier at the end when the adfarmers start crying about their crumbling empires. And by crying I mean insulting others and claiming they are victims to an evil communist organization. It makes me think of my niece when you don't buy her a toy. I say no. And she screams and screams and cries in anger. Then she kind of calms down and tries more of a sobbing saddness approach. Then I call her a bad actress and she says something like "you're a doodoo head and I hate you." And I say "yeah well you're still not getting any new toys" and she says "BIG DOODOOHEAD" and I go back to reading the back of the Xbox360 game I was going to buy myself, cause I'm an adult with money and not some crappy poor 6 yr old who is always dirty and smells and likes freaking Polly Pocket too much. ... God I hate children.
After having read a bunch of the later posts on the SL forum cause.. flame wars are always funny, I realized something.
I haven't fucking stepped foot on mainland in 2 years, unless it's to report a copybotter.
Why would you ever bother to go to main land? I think even the building stores I go to for scripts and stuff are in private areas. O_o
I failed at doing the reference picture justice. I think that girl hair is way cuter. I actually intended this to be for Boy-Noam. But girl noam took better snapshots so she gets to be in the ad. On a boy: Reference picture:
I spent the weekend learning new tricks in blender and watching The Mighty Boosh... and drinking Strawberry-coladas.*
Does anyone know a good place to buy Copy/trans animations for furniture that is NOT bits and bobs or CORN ? I was working on my own in Poser and they are seizure-iffic.
*my new favorite drink. It's like having an italian ice that gets you drunk. I dunno how to make them in such a way you don't need a spoon to consume it. ... I'm so making them when I get home. F the gym.
Bio: Noam was born in Feb 2006 spontaneously. He spent most of that year being a pain in the ass twat. 2007 proved to be better times, having moved to Koreshan and made some hat everyone and their grandma bought. Then he got really into smack, not the drug but the breakfast cereal, sugar smacks... mmm. Then stuff happened and things where great. Then more stuff happened and it's shitty again. I think cryolife might be karmic retribution for 2006.
If I'm offline, send me a notecard with your name, the item name, the date you bought it and most importantly the transaction # and you will get super speedy service as soon as I accept the note. Failure to do any of that means you have to wait.
If your notecard starts off by calling me a thief because you paid for something and it was never delivered, please take a second to close your eyes and picture me. Sitting at my desk and pantomiming strangling you. Never do I stroke my Snidley Whiplash mustache and go "HOHO, For I have stolen another 25 cents from someone on the internet! My dastardly deeds know no bounds!" And then cackle madly. The asset server sucks. Just give me the trans # and I will fix it.
Items that are NO MOD, will forever be no mod. Please try the demos
I will gladly send gifts of no transfer items if it's not a hugenormous list. There is no additional cost.
No Refunds or exchanges on NO TRANSFER items. This means hair. Please be sure that you are purchasing the correct style and color before you commit to buying.
Lying about transactions, using someone else's Trans #s, saying you bought more than you did etc, will result in banning. And if it's funny, I may tell other people about it too. :-D You've been warned.
I don't do customs, but I do take suggestions. If I get inspired by your suggestion I will send you the item I make for free. Please when suggesting stuff put your avatar name on a notecard with any reference pictures as I have a shitty memory.
I don't make little kid clothes.
I do not speak any other language than English. If you do not speak English, then you probably can't understand any of this policy and I look forward to your nonsensical IMs and threats on my life.
I can only do resizes if I have time. I don't usually. :( Sorry. Honest to blog, if I have free time, I will help you out. If it's an easy issue, I will try to walk you through it.
Until Linden labs gets rid of the NOTES sections of profiles, I track all correspondences with customers through that. If you were a dick to me 6 months ago for no good reason and you're hoping I forgot by now, hahahahaha. Silly face. I love taking notes.
I'm not looking for models.
I don't want to give you $10,000 linden to put on a fashion show.
I'm not looking for rental spots at the moment. When I am, I am looking for places that: have nice builds, don't have to do with nekos, and have a rental rate closer to L$1 to 1prim.
If Second Life ever fucks up your PERMS and makes mod objects no mod, I will replace them. If it's trans, send me back the broken parts. If it's no trans, TP to the shop when I'm on and just show me you own it. (Snapshots do not = ownership)
I do not replace items for people who got their accounts banned. I do not give items to alts either. Just don't get banned. How hard can that be?
The only people who should be offended by this list are the people who commit these atrocities and therefore deserve to be offended. If you are just a chill costumer who does your thing without rocking my boat, then I love you X a billion.
