Yay, some of our products are now available on the Second Life Marketplace.
Of course SL being SL, none of my stuff migrated from SLX/Xstreet to the new Marketplace as promised, so I'm having to rekey in the data and upload the pics again.
I've had a few technical problems since I am using a different computer to where all my stuff is, and had to download from SL the vendor pics of the products, but many were 256s which the marketplace does not accept. However I've now managed to get the original Photoshop files off an external hard drive and save them as new 512s.
So there are now a handful of products avaiable, and I'll be adding more over the next few days until all are available once more.
Okay, I've had a bit of time to explore in-world, and as expected, all my stores are gone. I will be listing some stuff with SL Marketplace soon, now that I've got a handle on the SLX/Xstreet and OnRez merger with SL. Sadly Virtual Starry Night, an excellent gallery of Van Gogh's work, has bitten the dust. And of course the FirstMeta MetaCard, a virtual credit card, has gone too. The pic has a link to the announcement.
I'm not on a phenomenally fast machine, but after a glitch where my avatar was all stripes (which seems to have cleared, so it must be a SL bork rather than my machine) I should be able to do some editing and creating.
And there is some stuff in the works about possible new in-world shop locations.
Well, here is a new look to the blog with the whizzo new template builder on Blogger. I've now checked most of the links here, but have not yet changed all the in-world or online store links until I've been in and sussed exactly what is happenning following Linden Labs acquiring Shop OnRez and SL Exchange. The former certainly has disappeared off the face of the earth, the latter still exists until the Second Life Marketplace takes over.
So pretty much none of the products will be available, but I will, when I can get reasonable in-world access, try and restore the products, but there will be some rearrangement and discounting, with lots of new product ideas to come, so stay tuned!
Well, sorta. Been away with all sorts of problems, lack of employment, loss of internet connection, blown power board etc, but once I find my feet again, things should be back to, er, normal. Loads of ideas to come, but I also have to check what has changed in SL over the last 2+ years :-o
Be aware I haven't yet checked any of the inworld stores, but I know the magic boxes disappeared from most locations, before most of the web sites also died, merged, or got eaten by Linden Labs.
Well, I needed a computer on my desk, and I have a computer anim from Bits & Bobs. Since I have an iMac in real life, I chose an iMac in SL (in fact I have several lol) but all the mice were poor. So I made this, and have it positioned nicely for the anim. And I thought I'd share it for the Mac users out there. Enjoy!
