Do You Remember?

Do you remember a time when we were at the climax of our SL careers? When we were not only sexy and young but engaged in SL stuffs?

I just found a kinda nostalgic photo from a Linden Lab meeting, where we protested bad sim crossings. It was in 2011 and none of us were n00bs anymore but, boy were we motivated and full of fight. I even made a poster to wear … and, if necessesary, to hit some or the other Linden over the head with it.

LL meeting_006
F.l.t.r.: Oyv Inshan (boatwright), Porter Tracy (sailracer), Orca Flotta (TrYC High Cheese), Joly John (sailracer).

And many more SL Sailing Community members were attending that meeting too: Little Kittensusie was our official representive and I’ve heard don Berithos in the crowd as well.

SL was terrible, at least technically it was. But we all had a great time! These times are gone and I fear they won’t come back. *sigh



    • Sorry to disappoint, Jackie, I’m still looking more or less exactly like back then. Of course I operate on my avie all the time, small stuff. But generally it’s the same Orca then and now. Trap gave me money some time ago and told me I must get a bento head and mesh body. But I was just too lazy to look into that stuff and afraid I would lose my identity. So I gave her the money back.

      Haven’t seen Qyv in years but I know Potty and Joly were also more or less the same avies as they are now. Joly has left SL, Potty is on sometimes and still has a parcel in Triumphal. And she also still looks like at the day of the great mass protest. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • That’s because Sansar doesn’t feature a real atlas and will never ever have one, Luna. It’s not a world like SL but merely a collection of unrelated “experiences”. To get from A to B you must TP. Brrr, shiver. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      Ebbe made that clear already long before they started working on Sansar when he said he doesn’t like the worldmap. Obviously not a traveller or a vehicle user at all, that guy. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      I guess he, like many other labbers, never understood what makes SL such a cool product. Once, when I was complaining about crashing during sim crossings with my sailboat some networker really, and without the slightest hint of sarcasm, told me I should just TP. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


    • Oyv?

      What tf are you talking about, Sammie? Qyv? Yes, my most beloved boat builder. She gave us the gift of M-24, the bestest raceboat in SL.

      Sansara, Sansar? Make your mind up, scatterling. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Yes, because you was probably the only one sailing that thing. Scows are fugly, even if Melges made them in RL and Qyv in SL.


    • “the scow was the best qm2”

      That makes no sense at all!
      Sammie, there are all those weird things on your keyboard, like ,;.:! They are nifty and make a lot of sense. Use them.
