Oh, Come on, Second Life. Give A Lycan A Break

More redmapping. Become a regular thing in Steelhead. I hate it, not because it's screwing with events that I'm providing the music, but because it's what people are starting to remember Steelhead for.

Perhaps TotalLunar Eclipse might explain this in more detail.....even better if Tensai Hilra had a blog of her own, but this much is certain, Linden Lab has done everything, including moving Steelhead to a different server (more than once if I understood the conversation right), and we're still redmapping. Have no idea what's happening.

Something else that's weird.....I seem to have an early warning system when there's problems in the sim. Seems to be just me, as nobody else I've talked with has seen this. The columns at the Kokopelli Stage, as well as the outer walls on several of the buildings across town, start changing color, kind of a rainbow. Sure enough, when I see that, my stream starts screwing up or the sim will redmap.

As for the stream, having only one computer, I'm not aware of songs skipping or knowing that there are problems hearing the music unless someone tells me......or some asshole is rude about it. Let me assure you, a huge percentage of that issue is due to the problems Steelhead has been facing, a smaller percentage is me having to stream using Winamp (I had SAM by means other than paying for the full version, and lost it when the old computer fried) with Windows Vista (which I think is the reason I'm getting the early warning system scenario, while nobody else is).

I've got a gut feeling that when Steelhead Harborside rises from the depths, and we had several events over there, there would be no issues with the stream. As far as the issues in Steelhead City.......we must be patient. We have two of the best managers in all of The Grid, even though they are frustrated by these circumstances, they haven't given up. We'll get to the bottom of this. As the old saying goes, "Caledon Wasn't Built In A Day"

Preparing The Storylines

I've put it off long enough. Time to head back into the roleplaying aspect of Second Life. Vista seems stable enough for me to get back into the swing of things.

Have to make a few more IM's contact a person or two, and the Jobias storyline goes back into full swing. Steelhead and parts of Caledon will be used as settings, most of it in blog entries across the aether. I've decided to wait until after the Harvest Festival, though.

After that, Cousin Purdie will be taking the spotlight. Few surprises in that respect, mostly this'll be blog entries, with Purdie getting his own blog (ooooo, a spin off series). I made arrangements in Steelhead for this......and when showing Lunar and Tensai something that'll play a major role in that storyline, Tensai took great interest in that thing that I showed them....far as I know, it'll lead to nothing dangerous. She may start to get very creative in a build, though. Trust me, it'll be fun. Not every idea I give her leads to something or someone being destroyed......

Aaaaaaaand after that.....who knows. May come up with something else, may take a part in someone else's adventure. Let's see where the fun'll lead us.
