There has been quite a bit going on as usual, and not least of all the move of the West End club to a new location. My friend Brie Janick has been very ill and hadn’t been able to make it in-world for quite a while and we all missed her and were worried about her too. Seany, Brie’s fiance had been keeping us up to date on how she was doing and we were all so pleased when she finally returned. The plans were to move the club to a new sim and Clive worked really hard to sort everything out and he eventually found a new spot to settle in. Drax had his skybox at the old site and this too would be re-located to the new place. We went back to Tropical Drift where the club and our News shop had been, we just had a final toast to the happy times we had there.
They re-opened the club at the new location called Midnight Sands and it was soon up and running with not only the old gang turning up but with a lot of new faces too. I soon got settled into one of the shops and set up our ‘News Shop’ and Drax moved back into his skybox as did Hibiscus who had one too. Brie came back and organised some great nights, and it has been one round of parties there.
Talking of parties, I had looked forward to a concert in New London on Sunday just gone, it was a tribute Beatles night and it looked like a lot of fun. However when I tried to teleport I was stuck, I just got a message about not being able to teleport in a timely fashion and to try later. No matter how I tried I just didn’t get anywhere. In the end I had to use another av, it’s a dead giveaway as it’s just like my usual av but at least I got over to see the show. It was really a good night and I decided there and then to put the article on CNN, as I had already covered the Beatles anniversary of 50 years of being together in my last report. Todays article was the 200th one I have written for them and it only seems a little while ago I had reached the 100 stage.
Looking at SL ‘help’ I found some solutions to difficulties in teleporting and one of them was to remove all my attachments, including my hair (shock horror of being bald!) and to teleport without them to see if that worked, and it did!! The best way is to click on your av and remove all attachments from the pie chart menu, that way you won’t leave any attached. I suppose if you wear stuff long enough you may get a corrupt script or something, but it worked for me, I’ve had no trouble since. I also had a little trouble in Inworldz the new grid, I typed in ‘hair’ in Search, as my quest for shopping goes on even there! and I crashed and was told to re log. Each time I tried to look for hair I crashed again. I finally sent a ticket to the support people and they came back very quickly and told me that ‘hair’ would crash every time and they did know about it. So I have to type ‘female hair’ now and that worked a treat, so any odd words I put in that make me crash I will know what to do in the future. My av is looking better now in Inworldz, I found a nice skin which was quite cheap and some more hair. The hunt will be on for some good clothes and shoes next, I just can’t stop shopping in SL or Inworldz!
