Hello my dearest dears! How marvelous, here we all are again, ready for another grand adventure on the OpenSim , the software platform that hosts hundreds of independantly owned and operated grids/worlds. Lots of these grids are connected by the hypergrid, an amped up teleportation system that allows you to traverse these brave new worlds, having cool adventures, meeting other pixilated pioneers, and snagging freebies till you are just dizzy! If you don´t understand any of these terms, or don´t know how to get onto OpenSim, please read my very VERY easy to understand, totally simple to follow, OpenSim posts. Come join the fastest growing virtual experience on the planet! I´ll see you out there!
Recently, I had been posting about my own home world CRAFT-THE FRIENDLY GRID , a well developed,160 region, vibrant community of artists and builders, which is my personal recommendation for the OpenSim newbie; and the leviathen OS Grid, with it´s 11, 000+ strong, highly developed, independantly run regions of everything and anything. It got me itching to do a post on one of the small grids again. Finding interesting, quirky little hangouts is a thrill in any reality. A Virtual World was just the ticket. It has 30 regions , only six residents, and possibly the worst name in the metaverse; try telling someone you were in A Virtual World, you wind up looped in a “Who´s on first, what´s on second” conversation. Saying “Bob Solo´s Grid” is much smoother going. And because it is largely a reflection of one man´s enthusiasms, there is really no genre or theme outside of intelligent, unpretentious dude. So let´s just go and take a look around! Oh, one thing- I am still messing around alot with my windlight settings (the button at the bottom of your browser with the Phoenix or Imprudence logo), so the sky and water don´t necessarily reflect the region. Just how much wine I´ve consumed.
Bob´s profile says he likes to be left alone, so when he popped in I got kind of nervous; but he turned out to be super friendly. And interesting! We talked for a long time about everything and nothing; amazingly, he has only been a builder for 5 years. A modest man, he was really pleased and surprised I knew about his involvement in Virtual Belfast´s famous Titanic project. I informed him yes, it was a freaking miracle I knew anything, as he posts almost no information, ANYWHERE! I got on his case about the state of his BLOG which contains ONE LINE( I mean dear god, it´s a WordPress 3.1, like mine. If I can push the right buttons, so can a squirrel) and his A VIRTUAL WORLD WEBSITE which has an excellent short film about virtual expressions of love, and a riveting talk by Dr.Michio Kaku, but only two small posts and NO pictures or direct information about his really great grid.
I am pleased to have changed all that a little bit. here is the upper hypergrid address of the Welcome area : avirtualworld.dyndns.org:8002 . If that won´t work for you,there is a blam gate in the Sanctuary Eld, and a panel at Crafts Hydra Station, and I think a gate at Hyperica Upper.
And now my beloved readers, with my fonts once again gone all wonky, I will love you and leave you. Thank you all so much for joining me. Your company means more to me than I could possibly find words for. Until the next time, the sweetest of dreams, and the brightest of days to you all. Adieu!
