So this morning, when I logged on to my laptop, everything froze. There had been an update while I slept, how I do not know because I had feature turned off… no updates unless I allow them. With a frozen screen all I could do was reboot… Nothing… reboot again…. nothing. This had happened before, when the laptop was about 11 mths old & then it had to go back to samsung to be repaired, free as it was still under warrenty. 3yrs later & it has happened again, but I wasn’t ready! I mean I knew I was going to have to replace it sometime soon, but not TODAY I was NOT ready for this TODAY. I had not backed up my HD, so EVERYTHING… all of my Mesh, my clothing designs, my new posters I spent hours creating last night for my new release… All GONE! I could have cried.
So now I have a new laptop, this time I went back with HP, got the pavilion with Nvidia Geforce. You can’t beat a HP, none of my other laptops ever let me down, or locked me out so i couldn’t save stuffs, they just wore out after quite a few years.
So now i have my shiney new laptop & was finally able to download the IWv3 Viewer
I have visited a few times over the years, Fleure is a supporter of live Music & I always enjoy the artists performing. This evening it was Russell Eponym, wonderful ‘Music Whisperer’ Musician/Singer/Songwriter./Poet.
If you have never visited I highly Recommend that you do.
For years I used the 1 prim old style vendors for selling my wares, then about 2yrs ago I went to multi vendors really only for the gifting & discount options that you can offer to customers. I was out shopping a few days ago & had not really noticed this about myself before, but I really only purchase items from 1 prim, old style vendors myself. So it got me thinking (which is often a bad thing lol). I do not like to stand in front of a multi vendor flipping through to find something that I like, sometimes having to wait a while for the photo’s to rez in, so what makes me think that my customers do?
So for the past few days I have built a new store which I am now filling with old style 1 prim vendors, its hard work, I had forgotten that lol. But I am also having the multi vendors around for those who prefer them. It is going to take me a while before I can launch the new store, so my old one is still up & fully stocked with multi vendors filled to the prims with all of my creations 😉
I like how I can display my items in one prim. I like how I can make the store more user friendly with 1 prim vendors. My multi vendors are great… but no matter how I lay them out, you still have to wait a bit for the next page to show the photo’s
On my return I quickly rezzed out my old stores & filled them as fast as I could. Over the last dew days I have been thinking about changing things, the layout, the decor, even the buildings. In all of the years I have been in VW’s my main focus has always been fashion. I do create other things, like furniture & landscapes, I just don’t seem to Market those as much as I do my Fashion store. In the past I have always just placed furniture upstairs in my Main store, last year I copied my store & placed the furniture in its own place, but still not really focusing on it. Now I have purposely built a Furniture store, where I can place out all of my furniture & Furnishings on display. Lots of room for me to fill with lovely new creations I am working on 😉
A few years ago, after the freebies were removed from IDI (welcome center), Wolf-Tek created the Freebie Ring. I have always used it dotted around my region & it has brought lots of residents in to it. However there are only a handful of Merchants/land owners actually using it. Considering that the main cry by most in IW is that there are no people about, or ‘no one ever comes to my region’ it really surprises me that there are not more using this vital FREE tool for bringing residents to your Region. It is so easy to set up & use, there is a website where Residents can look to see where the freebies are & what is on offer, or they can just use the inworld ring to jump from one to the other.
Last night I went to a Birthday Party for Cataplexia Numbers. It was quite late here in the UK about 1am, I had just finished Modelling a new outfit I had put together, but wanted to just call in & say Hi. I had been having some viewer issues after updating the V2 Viewer I use & last night I couldn’t even dance at the party because nothing was happening when I clicked on the dance ball. So I could only stand & watch the dancing, but the music & Light show were great & it was nice to be with People. I didn’t know most of them, but was able to catch up with Cataplexia & enjoy the atmosphere, so all was good.
I have now reinstalled the old V2 beta viewer, hopefully now my issues will stop. I wish I could use the V3, but it just won’t work on my laptop
