Coastal Boating Community

Houseboat // Bellisseria

They say you can never go home again, except in Second Life, where you can! In late 2019, I had a houseboat for a short time before moving on to another shiny new theme. On a whim three years later, I rolled the same houseboat again! This time, instead of the Eveningstar, I chose a different model, the Wallower.

My feelings about houseboats have largely remained consistent over the last three years — they were one of my least favorite themes. I don’t have a houseboat very often because I don’t like the colors or the crowded feeling. But every now and then, I come across a location that I find so appealing that I end up staying for a while. This is true of my current houseboat.

Updated JuicyBomb Rainbow EEP Settings

JuicyBomb - Rainbow EEP Settings

Psst.. rainbows for everyone! From now until September 1st, you can get a free copy of my popular Rainbow EEP settings at the Aurelias Rainy Cafe. It’s on the counter inside the cafe.

I’ve been wanting to update the pack to include N/S/E/W directions for the Cheery Day setting. Today I found out that Linden Lab is using the Cheery Day setting on the debug regions, so I decided to update the pack and give it away for a week. If you previously purchased this, you can get a FREE update on Marketplace.

I was a cloud for 24 hours

I was a cloud for 24 hours

As the title says, I was a cloud in Second Life for 24 hours and it sucked! I decided to update my viewer on Monday. Unbeknownst to me, some inventory maintenance was also taking place on the grid at the time, so my inventory vanished. I did a quick Google search for missing inventory and tried so many different things to get the inventory back. I deleted my cache. I did a fresh installation of my viewer(s). I visited a water region. On my computer, I replaced this random inventory cache file. Nothing worked! I came across this blog post about Inventory Management and Performance, which advised me to contact support as soon as possible.

Zooby Animesh Cat

Zooby Animesh Cat

We now have cats at Aurelias Rainy Cafe! Zooby has just released the Animesh Cat, and if you like interactive pets, you’ll want to get your hands on these cuties for your Second Life. The animations are the cutest thing about these cats! I’ve rezzed two at the cafe, and they run around making realistic cat sounds.

Zooby Animesh Cat
Luna & Tiger, the Aurelias cats

Meet Luna and Tiger, the first Aurelias cats! The Zooby Animesh Cat has a variety of accessories that you can buy separately, for your cat to interact with — such as food bowls, beds, and litter boxes. The accessories are optional, so you don’t need to get them if you don’t want to. I bought my cats some food, but I don’t think feeding them will level them up or anything. You can also choose to not feed your cats, and they will still stay healthy, cos these are not breedables. You can also rez as many copies as you want to, they’re copiable.

You can choose your Linden Home?!

You can choose your Linden Home?!

Have you ever wished that you could select your Linden Home? Many people have asked me how I was able to select my stilt home using the Premium Plus choose your Linden Home concierge service, so I’m here to show you exactly how to do it.

Is your dream home available?

Before you upgrade your account to Premium Plus in order to use this service, make sure you map Bellisseria and create SLurls to available homes. Keep in mind that popular Bellisseria themes are frequently sold out and the homes are instantly available on the Land Page, you won’t be able to file tickets for those homes with any success. Newly released themes are more abundant, so you will have much better luck filing a ticket for a home.

DeeTalez, Events and other Ramblings

DeeTalez-Fanny

“Hi All,” says Elle Couerblanc’s Typist. “This time tomorrow I will be on a grand adventure to the Great State of Florida! But before I go I had to make one post of our girl, Elle Couerblanc, in the latest release from Deetalez called Fanny. “Doesn’t Elle look so cute,” she continues with a heavy sigh, “plus, over the weekend, Elle went a shoppin’ to all the various events on the grid, and boy does she have a lot to say…

Saving Money with Gogo

My Office

Flickr sent me an email recently, reminding me that my Flickr Pro subscription is up for renewal. I’ve subscribed to Flickr Pro for many years, dating back to 2007. The price was reasonable at first, at around $25 a year, then crept up to $50, now it’s $71.99! I’ve been paying for the subscription 2 years at a time, to get a slight discount. I did not know that Flickr raised the price so much, and wanted $139.99 from me for 2 years (this already includes savings). Before they could auto-renew my subscription, I went to cancel it to see if they would offer me any discounts to stay, and they did!

Soft Melody

Soft Melody

Hello from Soft Melody!

An Island Hidden in the sky.
As you will walk down the alley the blossom scent will lift you. The soft warm wind will hug you so very gently. The chimes will guide you and the cats? Well the cats will ignore you because they are still cats after all…

Soft Melody

I saw a preview of this place on Flickr several weeks ago, and I just knew it was going to be gorgeous. Being here is like being in a beautiful Japanese city in an Anime. There are sakura petals gently falling all over and it’s full of life and so many cats! I wish I could take this region home with me and keep it forever.

Soft Melody

Lately, the term Metaverse has been thrown around by journalists as if it doesn’t already exist. Hello, I am in the metaverse right now, and it is called Second Life. We’re not waiting for the metaverse to happen, it’s been here for nearly twenty years. Show me another metaverse as complete as Second Life…
