I have a bunch of blog posts in my head. But with doing other blog posts, reading other blogs, plurks, parties, spending time with Levi & Cen, RL things, and a little detective work - well...who has time to write?
Plus, when I DO sit down to write posts, they end up being SO long. And I do mean long. So I've saved a couple, but I have to go back and try to revamp them to be shorter.
But until I do that, we'll talk about something else. :) I FINALLY managed to shove myself in to Hair Fair. I know, I said I wasn't going on opening day, but I just couldn't live another moment without THIS hair from Curio.
This one is called Lovely, and it so is. The moment I had tried on the demo, I just couldn't get it out of my head. I also picked up Rabid while I was at the Curio stall, because I love love love it too.
The lag was, of course, horrific. And believe me, some of those women strutting around put the "HOR" in horrific. Just for fun, I had turned on the Avatar Rendering Cost thing before heading out there. I had an ARC of 1. I didn't have any scripted things, any prims, nothing. I get out there and the red numbers are ALL over. I mean, just flashing here and there. 2000, 3000, 5000... It was bad. Now I know that ARC isn't the be-all/end-all of lag measuring. But it was something to see, that's for sure.
So I make it over to the Curio stall, FINALLY, and then I decide to go look for the Pixel Dust stall. Well, lag starts getting worse and worse. I even resort to that box trick that everyone out there was doing, even though I'm pretty sure that might have been lagging the place out, too. But I couldn't walk, and I do have a pretty good computer, you know? I look out and I see a bright red ARC, and it looks really long. I think, "Oh, two avatars must be on top of each other." As I'm trying to move my box around, I stop and I cam over to the number. 132,051.
I almost fall off my box.
I rub my eyes, I stare more, and it doesn't change. Over 130,000 ARC!! How...how is that possible?! I'm staring at this guy and I take a picture, even though because he was a ways away from me and SL was making his eyes look crazy.
I still have no idea how his ARC was THAT high. I tried to move my box a little closer so I could inspect his hair, just to see what was up. But unfortunately, I crashed trying to do that. And my box is lost at the Hair Fair. I think it's near the Hair Solutions stall, if anyone wants to delete it. lol
After that whole thing, I spent some time hanging out on a posestand, fixing my new hair and chatting with the group. Then I got really bored and I went shopping. I ended up buying the cutest lingerie at Insolence!! I cannot wait for Levi to get home so I can show it to him. :)
I guess I'll head to bed. I have some RL visiting to do tomorrow, and that usually requires at least 6 hours of sleep. LOL
