!@#$% Glow

Ok, after a little playing around I’m certain that the weird ghosts and other issues are all caused by glow. Here are some of the annoying (albeit, kinda cool) things showing up in my snapshots.  Screenshots, not surprisingly, are not showing any of these issues but I didn’t think they would.

This hair has glow enabled so that’s what is causing the ghosts here.  As you can see, I am a sad panda because this is effing up all my snapshots!!! >.<

Where’d my body go??! Prim (colored white) behind me has glow on.

I’ve been bleh lately. Kinda uninspired, bored, and just meh for no good reason really. On another topic, nearly all my snapshots lately are being effed up by that glow ghost blur thing so I haven’t really felt like having to photoshop the living daylights out of every snap. Anyways, this picture turned out pretty okay.. though now I’m annoyed by the hair/hand business but I didn’t notice it until I uploaded it to Flickr and now I’m too lazy to go back and fix it. Maybe I’ll vector it later on, that might look cool. Well I’m rambling now.. bye!

Meme

I like memes. I don’t know why, I just do. Here’s a collection of a few from this week:

SL Inventory
– Yes, it only looks neat on the outside. I’m really fanatic about the outside of stuff looking neat but I don’t care too much what the inner stuff looks like.
– Open your SL inventory.
– Don’t clean up anything!
– Take a screenshot of your inventory and upload to Flickr.
– Post the instructions with your picture.

Desktop – I do keep my desktop fairly neat… I don’t like a bunch of icons cluttering up my wallpaper. It’s a picture of the Club Congress that I took a few months ago.
– Minimize all the windows.
– Don’t clean up anything!
– Take a screenshot of your desktop and upload to Flickr.
– Post the instructions with your picture.

Name 3 of your SL pet peeves. They don’t have to make sense and they can be totally crazy, but just name 3 things that bug you and discuss!

1. Ban lines just in general are made of fail. They are an eyesore and they leak through my walls even though they are up next door.. why can’t they just be invisible walls? And also, why don’t they extend all the way up? I’d very much like to keep people from just letting themselves into my skybox. Sure, I realize they can cam in but I’d far prefer them to peep from somewhere else than actually show up in my house. Actually it would be awesome if they could keep people from camming in too! A girl can dream can’t she?

2. People who complain about freebies. Honestly, if it’s not your thing, fine, don’t take it and stfu. I still remember being in a store where the owner had just set out a freebie and people were bitching about it in general chat while she was standing right there! So effing rude. And it was fine quality but it was one of those things that not everyone would be into. Ugh. Is it so hard to just not pick up a freebie if you don’t like it and leave?

3. The camera. My struggle with the horrendous camera are well documented and even though I’m better at using it, I still HATE, HATE, HATE the camera. Hate.

And I’m going to add a 4th because it’s something that just recently starting bugging me… for some reason on this latest viewer there are glow “ghosts” showing up in my snapshots. Like I’ll be near a tree that has glow on it and there will be this weird light thing that will cover my face or something in the snapshot. Very weird and annoying and it’s ruining the majority of my snapshots so I have to stick with screenshots to make sure I don’t get that which is also a pain.

Inventory woes

What on Earth possessed me to try and organize my inventory?! *tears hair out*  I thought my inventory was a blackhole of horribleness in WoW where I routinely am forced to purge stuff because I’m out of bag space…. that is NOTHING compared to having what amounts to an unlimited bank in SL…. which means I have every landmark, notecard, bald base, what’s it, and freebie I’ve ever managed to come in contact with.  My inventory is like playing Katamari… I just steam roll and collect.  And let’s not even get into the horror that is my textures folder.  It’s amazing I find anything in that mess.

Omfg.

NC/M/T Rant

Oops, I think I deleted this post from earlier. No idea how that happened.

First off I’ll say I do love the mini dress outfit from Ce Cubic Effect.. I’m only wearing the top bit in the pictures in the post below but the whole little mini dress thing is super cute. And I also purchased this item with the full knowledge that the perms were NC/M/T, basically No Copy. That being said… I hate no copy items that have a lot of primmy/sculptie bits that are hard to fit. Luckily the stuff fit fairly well straight out of the box so I didn’t need to edit it much. I didn’t edit the arm bit for Ruth below and you can tell it’s just not fitting right, but I didn’t want to fuss with it in the off chance I screwed it up royally. But I really mod a lot of the stuff I use depending on the pose I’m using at the time and I just don’t trust my editing skills all that much. You should see some of the monstrosities I’ve made with hair that I’ve modified. And that’s why I love mod/copy. Maybe it’s because I don’t often buy things for others so I never look for the trans perm on anything. So yeah, moral of the rant, I pretty much avoid No Copy items like the plague. I’ve often passed up really nice stuff because it’s No Copy. I just couldn’t resist the pull of this dress though. But I did cringe a little bit when I bought it.

Le sigh

Ugh. Just ugh. My neighbors want to offer up a land swap (?!?!) because they’ve basically bought everyone around me out and honestly, it feels a wee bit like strong arming due to the fact that they’ve pretty much blocked me in with huge buildings. Blech. While I wouldn’t mind moving somewhere with more space because I’m just about primed to max, I just wasn’t ready to make a move yet. I’ll have to see what the hubby has to say on the topic but I’m thinking of keeping it for the time being, perhaps shopping around for a new spot and making the move over gradually as to not lose customers and what not. But I think I will stop thinking about it and go play World of Warcraft, where I don’t have to deal with this kind of stuff. >.< Bad guys, I sees them, I kills them.
