Found a new Animations store

I cannot remember how I found it, LOL. It's a very LARGE store - they have belly dances which I was looking for additional ones, I did not see any couples dances even with their HUD but I may have missed them. I bought 3 of the Vogue ones- unfortunately it doesn't appear that one can buy individual dances, but they have 3 packs for 700L which isn't horrible and the animations are very smooth and nice.

Check out the MyAnimations store

Women are not equal to men

"I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman she will make greater. If you give her sperm she will give you a baby. If you give her a house she will make you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.

So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!" 😃

A trip to Bryn Oh Second Life Sim

This reminded me a lot of the old computer game Myst- an abandoned, lonely landscape filled with strange curiosities and artifacts. Before you actually enter the exhibit, there are instructions to set your WindLight and graphics, which my laptop could barely handle LOL [Sun & Moon shadows + Projectors].

Nevertheless the sim is amazing [not to mention the sunlight] and well worth a visit.
Some raw photos below:

While wandering around, I observed there are some videos that come up when clicking certain objects - found the two below there are probably more of them.

For Lisa - Firestorm sound not working

1) Make SURE that music and videos work properly outside of SL - can you play music on your computer ? Can you watch YouTube videos without any problem?

2) If the answer to  1) above is YES, then you have  viewer problem, as it doesn't happen that SL audio is down everywhere [Yes it could be not working in one place or another but it is not down everywhere for sure]. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF FIRESTORM.

3) Check your volume settings as shown in the picture below

I have voice turned OFF as it often annoys me and I cannot use it with family around, often.
NOTE: You probably know this already but you need to click the music icon to start music:

Make sure that you have STARTED music playback:

by clicking the music icon indicated by the red arrow.

4) If 3) did not fix the problem, there may be a problem with your FS Preferences. Here are two resources from the Wiki:

Audio tab


Yes you will have to read these pages as I do not know your system or what is on it. Here are screenies of my preferences which work for me:

5) If all of the above things do no work for you- have a trusted friend who knows what he / she is doing , log into your account and try to confirm or fix the problem.
