Spring at Furillen

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
I was feeling restless and antsy yesterday morning, so I went off for a bit of an exploration rather than unpacking boxes and figuring out what to feature from the Arcade which opens at midnight. I will do that today, but yesterday, there was just something in the air. And it was something that suited the carefree and happy Kaelyn maxi dress from Thalia Heckroth™.

I Went to the Garden

ACS Memorial Garden

Cancer touches us all. We all have friends and family who have confronted cancer and struggled to overcome.

It’s such a beautiful sim and very uncluttered so it struck me as a good spot to make a short video tutorial on using the Zoom keys to change your cameral “lens” in Second Life. Most of the time we zoom by pressing down the option or alt key and ten using arrows, view or the mouse to move our camera about and to zoom in. That’s great, but it makes for very distorted close-ups. This little video will show you how the zoom controls work and contrast proper and improper methods of zoom.
