I got to see Sam!

Tonight didn't go as planned. Ah well. :)

BUT... SAM CAME ONLINE!!! I was so happy!! But not happy at the same time since this was his last visit with us until he gets out of basic. :( He's heading to basic training on the 30th. He stopped in to do a few things and just check in on us. It was an all too short visit. I'm so glad that I got to see my buddy, because you all know how I've missed him so. But now I'm sad that I know for sure that I won't be seeing him until at least July. He was sad about that too, but I think he was even MORE sad about the fact that his head will be shaved. LOL

And I finally got to kick out the reseller that we had as a vendor at the pit. That store has been a thorn in my side since he showed up. I didn't just kick him out. lol I didn't mean for it to sound like that. He was over a day late in his rent and since he'd been complaining [allegedly] about the low traffic numbers, I'm sure he doesn't mind that I sent all his incredibly overpriced junk back. I'd like to get 3 or 4 smaller merchants in there... maybe designers that are just starting out, since really I'm just starting out myself. But they have to sell their own designs, not just be reselling freebies.

Other than that bit of excitement, it was a quiet night for me. I got caught up on group gifts, and of course spent quite a bit of time playing Sweet Tooth. lol Rick kept me company for a while by showing off a house he built and we flew in his helicopter. I'm amazed at how few vehicles and other things I have. I have that Mercedes that was given away for free some time ago, and I've been trying to find that bicycle that I picked up with Cen when we were in Paris, but my inventory is hopelessly enormous and I can't remember the name of it. So I'll have to go back to Paris to get another to see what it's called. And I have a hobo bike from Arcadia Asylum's collection, plus some cheap motorcycles, but that's about it. Sometimes I really don't know what exactly is taking up so much inventory space. lol

Oh look, another Release Candidate viewer....with over a 100 comments in the in SL Blog that it's crashy as hell and people are crashing when they go into appearance. Thanks for testing that out for me, guys. Now I don't have to download it. ;)

I guess I'll lay here on my couch and play some more Sweet Tooth before bed.

Yes, isn't it scary how they've borked the latest RC? I was reading the comments in fascinated horror...

how come you don't "have" to download the new RC, Alicia? I do, or I don't get in... and once I got in, they crashed me out and wouldn't let me back in for hours! *sniff*
Kitty wants to scratch and bite some Lindens today! =^.°=

Ali doesn't "have" to download the new RC because she'll just use a different viewer (like the main one or a First Look viewer), instead, and just wait for the next version of the RC to be released, right? ;-)

Quite right, Wrath. :) I moved to the main viewer after the whole "Dazzle" interface came out, with only brief trips to the RC viewers to play with the Avatar Rendering Cost thing. I was tempted to get the latest one, but then I read the blog comments. Since they're back to weekly RC updates, I think I'll wait.

Wow that's wierd. I've been running the newest RC since last night and it seems to run the best Evar. I mean, like a good 5 fps faster than the normal client! Of course the one before this crashed me instantly, while the one before that worked great. LOL

(Ok now i don't remember if I went into appearance mode, i'll have to check that.)

Alicia, you never know it could work great for you. If you care :)
