Let the summer begin…

19 06 2008

Its grand old holiday time for the next two weeks in old RL, which basicly means that I have more time for inworld matters:) For that reason, I am in the lucky position to complete some designs and wrap them up.:)

Besides that, I fiddled myself into GIMP, my mysterious graphics program, with the effect, that I now strive to improve the design of my product-posters.

Here is my first result …. well as the creator, I will naturally think it’s great …what would you think?

Oh btw thats a new product too, of course:)

New Product: Ventriloq – Personal Greeter HUD

18 05 2008

As a shopkeeper in Second Life ™, you normally have to repeat certain welcomings or product-related phrases to point out this or that over and over. That is, if you happen to be a shopkeeper who seeks ‘face-toface’-contact with customers or have employees for giving personal service.

Examples:
“Greetings. Welcome at SLCME headquarters. How may I help you?”
“Please remark that, if our products get utterly destroyed because of a malfunctioning prim, we will of course redeliver a fresh copy of the respective prim.”

Quite some typing for business-conversation, you have to do multiple times, isn’t it?

Due to this, a gadget, worn as a HUD that makes your avatar actually say whatever phrases you preset with a simple click, would defenitely save you some typing time.

Find it at The Hammerwielder Store Shop, on Second Life(tm) Exchange or on my onrez-site and take a look on a way to make serving customers a tad easier.





Segmented life

29 02 2008

Now these two weeks saw some ups and downs:
at first, my shares of the Mainstaululu-advertising-Network droppend with the uncertainty
of LL-Lab’s new policy regarding spam.
Secon: After my recovery from my personal >>nose-plague<<, my RL-boss was so kind to shove a heap of workload on my desk, which was able to keep me from my anydaywork and finally I had to teach some people in law-classes.

So, when old Friday came around, I was all fed up, while not being able to enter SL for more than two hours all week.

Now that my week had been segmented already, I started to dig up an old idea, which roamed
around my mind for quite some time: shop segments which could be copied and combined to form
a mall or a shopping-street.

While just having finished >>The Majestic<<, I decided to keep that very style for the new
designs as well.
Now I was all set to do, what I have been doing all week: neglecting my anyday-work to have some time of pure fun and contemplation while building.

When finished, I had attained two results.
First: I need more prims! I am eager to set these on a life-display as well and -oh dear-
I am short on prims, so I went over to a new tierlevel and started to buy whatever land was left on Dhaulagiri to realize my idea.

Second result was that I was much more relaxed after the weekend. It’s good to create some content now and then instead of doing admin-work for the shop.

Another idea, I had with buying more land was to refinance a bit of the whole thing by showing my new designs ‘in action’, which means, I rent them out to tennants for not too much money to cover some of the land-tierfee. Due to the 19% VAT I pay this wont work out
on the perspective of huge earnings, but it will help nevertheless.
But then again: where to get more prims for doing so?

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions …*sigh* back to admin work.:)
