Blogging from within SecondLife, second try

I’ll keep this short in case I start chatting random stuff to people who happen to be walking by (wish I knew a way to do this silently).

I’ve decided to start blogging from inside SL, at least for a little while (i.e., until I get bored with it). So look for posts from “slstats” that will be from in-game, complete with SL addresses if you want to see for yourself.

The furrent one, in Huin, is the plaza where you can pick up free watches.

This entry was posted by Second Life resident Delogos Burleigh from Huin.

Update: This is what I posted the first time (I apparently got the posting permissions wrong initially).

Yeah, I know it’s kinda silly (and really exposes how much of an Internet geek I am), but I decided to give it a try anyway. I’ve been playing Second Life for a while now (my RezDay is 10/31/2005), and it’s fun enough.

I don’t have a paid account, but I have a “grandfathered” basic account, so the stipend is still in effect for me. Anyway, posts from within SL will show up as this username. Feel free to ignore ‘em if you want.


Somehow, and I honestly have no idea how, the style file for this site (which k2 reads) was converted from LF (Unix-style) to CR (Classic Mac-style) encoding. Since I’ve never edited any of those files on a “Classic” mac (i.e., one running pre-OS X system software), I have no idea how that happened. In any case, a quick re-save in TextMate later, and everything’s pretty again.

I just wish the K2 guys would quit switching repository providers; I always forget what the SVN command for changing that is, and end up just checking everything out again from scratch and moving things around into the right places.

Test of CricketMoods

I installed a plugin that gives me those silly “Current Mood:” lines on posts. So I’m testing it out. I’ll probably try it for a couple days and decide that this isn’t livejournal, and turn it back off…

Happy Birthday, Linux!

Heh. Linus Torvalds had no idea what he was getting into 15 years ago…

Hello everybody out there using minix –

I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing
since april, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on
things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat
(same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons)
among other things).

I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and
I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them :-)

Linus (torva…

PS. Yes – it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.
