Glamour in Final Fantasy XIV

Many games – especially MMOs have a form of “costume” or other mechanism for people to “dress up” their characters. Wow has transmogrification where you can make an item of gear look like another item of gear. In Final Fantasy XIV they...

Player Community in FFXIV vs WoW

World of Warcraft (WoW) has had a reputation for a toxic community for a long time. This is not really unearned. Many people do not care how their actions impact on others and do not hesitate to pile insults and humiliations upon players that they feel are not playing...

OpenSim and the Future

Its a sad fact when some of the things we enjoy in life start to fade away.  When that favorite item is not made anymore, and we can’t replace it, or in this case when development seems to stop on an important project. OpenSim is not dead.  It will likely live...

For me, the words heat and action probably should never be in the same sentence.  While others are running to the beach (if close enough) or other sun traps, I am wondering how I can keep cool.   I am just not “built” to enjoy the sun and prefer to just...

A new look (virtual nudity)

I’ve decided to go for a Faerie look at the moment.   I won’t use this all the time – but I love the whole Faerie theme, and I’ve gone for a more “naughty” Fae look without wearing much (or anything).  My new Random World in Great...

Introducing the Amazon Echo Look.  This is the latest addition to the Amazon Echo line powered by Alexa, Amazon’s digital assistant.   It is interesting because now for the first time Alexa can listen to you and watch you. With the Echo the device constantly...
