i noticed a sort of urgent message from Phoenix.
apparently it is now imperative to migrate to the Firestorm viewer.
i've been meaning to for a couple of years, but keep thinking "why not just give up on the whole second life thing?"
yes, why not? i guess i had so much fun there for 4 or 5 years, it's hard to cut my ties. nostalgia for a virtual world, now so changed as to be barely interesting at all.
anyway, i did the surprisingly painless upgrade. it seems while i've been procrastinating, so have many others, and Firestorm just worked harder and harder to make a version more like Phoenix, just for us diehards.
everything seems to work except lucy's grass and money pile are white instead of green! (click pictures to see them really big!)
|where's the grass? and the money pile isn't green either|
|the other colors seem ok -- nice that the ugly across the way is gone|
|all is well in haven shire at mudpie's houseboat|
|and there are some new businesses in the neighborhood|
