Newsflash from Ancapistan Stock Exchange

30 03 2008

Today, I found something quite interesting and evenly disturbing on SL-News-TV.

IntLibber Brautigam, CEO of Ancapistan Stock exchange just stated in a press conference that ACE will be down for somewhat longer due to a serious bug in their database AND in the backup to it.

While he stated that deposits of anyone are safe, I cannot deny, that I AM ON THE COLD-FEET SIDE HERE AGAIN.

For the second time after the bank ban, my investments shake. It’s really like the feeling they must have had in the roaring 20s when all was possible.





Jogging in jam, searching for promoters

29 03 2008

Do you know the feeling to try jogging in a swimmingpool which is filles with strawberry jam up to your knees? Well if not try SL on a saturday night. Top of the cracker was the asset issue server, coming up. Somebody started it obviously.

Suddenly all tries to write anything, to bring things in world or to pick them up became fruitless. Frustrating though.

Well anyways, I managed to come up with a promotion plan and schedule and I am ready to look for promoters to make the Storeshop and the Galerie known throughout the channels.

So if anyone would go for a cut&paste-job for four hours daily, which you can do from anywhere in SL, IM me:)

Also, the comission vendors seem to be somewhat popular for I already have given away about twenty boxes of those and I am eager to see when the first sale from one of those rolls in.

Now time for bed now and be back in the morning when SL is mostly asleep:)

Have a nice weekend everyone!





CEOs, weekends and snow

26 03 2008

Boy SL sees happenings lately:)

Some CEO ejecting and becoming head of the board. While some wiseguru-newsagencies again honk the SL-is going -down-horn due to this, I think it was the right decision. SL has become so big, that it needs a department for vision on top while someone else than Philip Linden does the anyday business. In my opinion, SL will gain from this. Fresh people may also mean fresh ideas. Not too bad in view to LL either:)

working-at-the-drawingboard.jpgWell, back from the huge policy-plane, I m on easter holiday, which means, I had some time for neat improvements. Especially due to the snow outside in old Germany,  it was not too hard to get to my working platform, doing some of the administrational stuff for my shop. Did I mention that my to do list always tends to be my worst nightmare?:)

In fact I updated all my selling system to hippovend-technology and also developed some Comission Vendor to give away to people.

Another stroke of luck was that one of the three major shops ejected from the Dhaulagiri Sim, allowing me to buy half the place and to fill my land contingent. So now I have the prims to get back on my segment-shop idea with a decent primcount in my back to set a lifedisplay and rent out the shops there.

Right now, I am fiddling on a promotion-HUD to give away to people who do what i have no more time for: PRon group channels. So if you want that job, IM me:))





New Product: Gorean Forest Mansion ‘Etaria’

17 03 2008

ps_etaria-001.jpg Spacious and open is the impression, we wanted to give with the design of the ‘Etaria’ mansion. Taken over from the concept of the far smaller ‘Eloria’Forest-Retreat, the mansion is designed to hold your home in a most gracious way, with vast space, with open windows and a lofty balcony to enyoy the view or land without crashes, if needed.The slightly rusty metal roof grants a view to the nights sky as well as on the suns blaze on sunny sims.

To enjoy the building without boundaries, you will also find a Hammerwielder Teleport-System already built in, which you will only need to reset once after rezzing before using it to jump between the spacious halls on both floors. It will also allow you to easily configure other landing points by a simpel 4-step-system (get new destination-object from the TP-base, rename it, drop it where you want a destination to be and reset it).

This building will fit evenly well in a gorean setting as it will in some elven or fantasy surrounding.

Busy-Bee-Weekend

17 03 2008

Now this weekend has seen some work. By the way, did I ever mention that my fiance always sneers at me as I claim to work, while I lay down on my couch, digging under a cosy blanket with my laptop in front of me on a small  table.
The fact alone that my attention is malfunctioning during that time -especially in catching up on her comments about what’s on TV- should tell her that I am highly  concentrated:)

However, during this weekend I managed to work a bit, even though SL was jammy again at  times.

At first, me and my friend Dispensus Waechter got back on the old idea to rent out the Storeshop’s Shop Displays on the Life-display-platform over the shop (God, what a repititory sentence).Hrmmph. Explanation:

In Dhaulagiri, I finally had the chance to get rid of the Holovendor – solution for all of  my products and to put up Life-Displays, people can teleport to and see the structure they  would buy in full size.

This display platform now has its traffic and it naturally costs some prims. Due to the fact, that my main focus is on buildings, I have no big ambition in creating furniture. This means, the the shops always appeared somewhat bare and lifeless, while I alwayswanted to give the customer an impression of what my creations could look like in their place.

So we hammered out the idea to rent those display shops to shopkeepers.

My friend Dispenus Waechter took over the task to oversee the rental business there and will  do so for the upcoming lifedisplay of the segment shops, soon to come.

He bought a hippo-rental server and did set up the rentboxes and rental boards. So far the  boxes seem to be brillo, even though we aren’t smart enough to use the web-based-server  option as of yet:)

We hope to offer some synergy-effect to shopkeepers here, due to its a free-tp zone. This  basicly means that they can offer their customers the chance to hop into their shops while  also the customers of the Hammerwielder Store Shop will pass by their shops to see the structures and  -of course- whats in them.

Now so much for that. I myself at the same time bought a hippo-update-server and  experimented with it. This means, that from now on, I will ship my products in Omega Rez  _locus Boxes which will look for an update every time they are rezzed to build a structure.

The customer will be given any never version on that very moment.

I hope this piece of service will improve quality for I am now able to correct little  glitches found immediately and not have to contact buyers one by one.

And finally what I did this weekend was to finish the forest mansion, I had underway for  quite some time now and boxed it up for sale (see product article above).

Now who says you can’t work on a couch?!





Updates Updates Updates

9 03 2008

I recently met Cal (yes I know that this is  normally what people call me), a fabulous guy who seems to have survived from the old days of SL, whobought of my vintage line wholesale package and who turned out to be a.: a nice person and b.:an excellent advocatus diavoli with a sharp eye.

He was so nice to point out several bugs in my designs to me which slipped me as some things do when you work intensely on them and turn into the eyes-wide-shut-mode. So I spent most of saturday with snooping after his findings and correcting them.

 

During this process, I updated the following things:

– The Majestic

And no, I do not have a fancy update-server as of yet, I have to admit. I fancy I slowly have to face the fact that this thing grows bigger and bigger and get me one:)

Kind regards,

Calixus
