User Guide to Binemist Portals

I love manuals/user guides/instructions (even rules). I find them extremely useful, and seeing that I have made a tricky teleport system on Binemist, I thought I would make an illustrated user guide to help you find all the different portals on Binemist.

Lets start…

I have placed a portal at the Tuscan Villa in the sky. It’s the barrel of water in the court yard. When you move your mouse over the barrel, you will get the option to sit. Please do…

You will be transported to the sea bed under the Viking ship

Whenever you see a door mat, it is likely a portal to somewhere else on Binemist. Move your mouse over the door mat and if you get the option to sit, you have found the portal. Of course as in all things; no rule without the exception, and here it is – the star portal:

You’ll find it next to Tuscan Villa and it will take you to the under water cinema

Bjarne’s Mountain – that incidently got an autumn coat today – also have a portal. In the café you will find a doormat, a kitten and a portal:

This will also take you under water – to the arty corner under the viking ship

On the platform in the sky – at the Ice Café you will also find a door mat and a portal. This portal will take you to one of the house on the surface

The last portal you will find at the light house. Once you get there, open the door and venture all the way up to the platform. Work up the courage to jump over the fence:

I hope you find this manual/user guide/instruction helpful. I work in IT and we love the phrase RTFM (Read The F**king Manual), so consider yourself instructed/warned :-))

Laurine made machinima on Binemist

I stumble over this very cute little video made at Binemist. I really like it. I think it tells a little story but I am not sure, as I don’t understand the French written on the film. I like it, the music fits very well. It’s just nice.

It bothers me however that the mesh island is material ready and looks shiny in some viewers. I really don’t understand why you would make a moss-overgrown rocky island material ready anyways. I really must talk to the creator about that.

Hiding out

On my back

Prefered pose

This image is a pretty good representation of how I feel RL at the moment. I prefer to be on my back… Protected in a shelter wearing combat boots and kneepads.

I have some issues with my tailbone. I can’t really sit down in front of the computer for long periods at a time. That makes my word-day somewhat hard, as I work in an IT department. Luckily I can raise my table so I don’t sit in front of my computer, I stand, and that means that my days at work are exhausting at the moment.

My boss has furthermore decided that we have to go round the office and talk to all the users. Stand next to them and help them with any IT issues they might have. It’s a super idea. Users love it. But I often feel under attack – I’m sure you know; It’s amazing how we, as users, can bitch about systems!

So when I come home to my flat, I spend rather a lot of time on my back on a nice comfy sofa, staring into the ceiling.

But I miss my SecondLife. I have a big arse desktop gaming computer luckily on a table that I can raise, but I don’t really feel much like spending whole evenings stand there – I prefer to be on my back when I am at home (I have someone who likes to cook for me, don’t worry). I also have a MacBook, but it’s not really very good in SL. But I found SLGo. That is brilliant for shopping and exploring on the Mac. I haven’t figured how to fiddle with stuff lying on back, but I can explore and shop.

So earlier this week I went to Uber. I like the theme. It suits my mood.

Bandana Day 2014

Bandana Day

Bandana Day

Today is the last day of the Hair Fair in SecondLife, and the tradition (long tradition that goes all the way back to 2007 – a life time in SL) has it that this is Bandana Day. We remove our hair to show that we care. The Hair Fair is a big thing in SL. All the great hair designers create hair where a percentage of the sale goes to the American charity Wigs for Kids.

Bandanas are sold on the Hair Fair and all the proceeds go to Wigs for Kids. Bandanas are created from people all over SL, by creators, bloggers and Second Life residents. This is my second year doing the Bandana Day, and I think it’s fun. This year I got this beautiful wrap from LeLutka. Last year I got to dance with Michaell on Bandana Day – this year sadly I am on my own.

On the matter of Michaell; He wrote me that he is taking a break from SL. I think he is bored with it. He plays Guild War instead. Maybe I could catch up with him there. We still keep in touch on email, and I am really happy I met him. I have a great friend in Michael.

Greens are always something to admire

Falu red Farm Shed on Binemist – now with stuff inside

2014-07-13_002

Falu red Farm Shed

Today I got around to decorating the inside of the Farm Shed. I had been wondering what to do with it, and then I came across some new stuff from Apple Fall that had the right colouring for the shed. It’s now a kind Scandinavian living room with books, both no comfy chairs as that doesn’t belong in a shed!

Gora and Bine

Gora & Bine

This morning I showed off Binemist to Gora. She had been by, but only seen the platform in the sky. She was well impressed with that, but when I showed her the potholes to the ground, she was even more impressed.
