What not to do

Log in as alt with mod rights to quickly try out an idea; shift-drag a copy of a bit of a work-in-progress item; blissfully start editing said shift-dragged copy and delete half of it; realize that a) the idea works b) the shift-dragged copy is actually the original, and the real copy is now no-mod, no-copy! ; swear profusely, log in with main account and rebuild the broken item. Oh SL, thy permission & building system will drive me crazy one day.

In other news, I seem to have deleted my modelling stand!! This is what comes from late night inventory clean-up crazes. It's not so much the expense of replacing the poses (half of them were pretty useless anyway) but rather that I have no idea what exact poses I actually had in that thing, and some of them seem to have been no-copy! Frustrating, all of this.

New - Gothic ruins gazebo

This is not the typical L&E update .. it's actually a pretty old project of mine, which I remixed & retextured to make my home plot's garden a bit more autumnal - it turned out so nice that I decided to sell it too!

The hard facts: 73 prims, mod / copy / no trans, comes in two sizes (10x10m base and 3x3m base) but is of course resizable, custom hand-finished textures, 550L$. See it rezzed at the shoppe in Iron or in Caledon (small size only).

Not gone, just hiding ;)

Just a small update to let you all know that I'm still around - just up to the neck in SL projects (and RL took a good turn that leaves me *very* busy too). I've been invited to a collaboration with Callie Cline and Tuli Asturias, which is turning out totally awesome! I'm going into a very new style territory, but it's lots of fun. Other than that, there's still the neverending L&E boot project from hell - where I'm now stuck on the texturing, learning about custom PS brushes, trying to gain a level or two on texture drawing *sigh* There might be a little (non-wearable) surprise for Halloween though - I'll keep you posted :)
