May Day RFL Flop and Other Matters

Stream connection issues forced me to end my May Day RFL event early.  When the connection keeps cutting out every few seconds, that's bad.  I'll try to get to the bottom of this, but for right now I'll have to hold off on DJing until the problem is solved.  I can't have this kind of thing happening every time I try to use my stream.

Of course, only a few people actually showed up, three or four at most.  Sometimes you hit the traffic jackpot big, and sometimes you flame out big.

I'm already seeing the beginnings of another blog battle from certain quarters.  During my DJ event Tuesday night, someone from a certain griefer-run group showed up before the actual start of my set, when I was warming up my playlist.  Sure enough, the little liar himself wrote a blog starting shit again, even though in my previous posts I didn't even mention him by name.  But there he was, ranting and raving and mentioning me (and someone else he has a problem with) by name.

I make no excuses for anything I've written here, or anything I've done in SL (and I have indeed done some really stupid shit).  But for you-know-who to keep attacking people like this — especially through a charity organization — is pretty low even for filth like him.

I've begun building TARDIS consoles again in SL (pics will be uploaded later).  I'll probably end up submitting it to Novatech again once it's finished, since other groups are either severely back-logged or won't touch my builds.  I'm also working on making a small space station for RP purposes.  Because land is so limited, I can only work on one project at a time.  But I really only need to place controls on the new console, and as for the station build, that's a longer term project since this is my first time doing something like this (at least with the intention of making something that can actually be sold).

In my real-life, such as it is, the last week of school for the semester is upon me.  I need to find a paying job for the summer — NOW — so I can pay for the storage unit containing eighty percent of what I have left in the world.  Otherwise I'll lose it all.  I could cry.  I really could.  Film-makers do not cry.  And I am a film-maker now.

My short film is in the editing phase.  Depression and illness have kept me from working on it as diligently as I should, but I have to get it, and a screenwriting project for my other class, done by Tuesday.  Gotta love deadlines.  I will make them.  Just you watch.

New World Notes has two more commentaries on Linden Lab's poor business decisions, which you can read here and here.  The following quote sums up what I'm sure pretty much everyone who's been told to get a new computer by some moronic V2-apologist probably feels: "My AlienWare M11x runs next generation AAA games like Skyrim just about perfectly, but somehow, can't run a client that's been around in some form for 10 years. Why should I spend $2000 to make up for Linden Lab's shortcomings?"  Yep, that about sums it up.  Next time, V2-apologists, think before spouting off such a stupid remark.
