And so it begins.

Looks like it’s been about a week or so since I posted. So, what has been happening? Well, there was of course Second Life 1.5.8 (followed closely by 1.5.9 and 1.5.10 in fairly rapid succession to fix some newly introduced bugs). The Lindens don’t yet seem to have crippled my sim, which can only be seen as a good thing, and the store’s doing well.

The other evening, in Gravity, Freya dedicated a song to me, which Dominick played :). Unfortunately, due to the problems with SL, I crashed just before it started and was unable to get back in for about a half hour. So much for that. Thank you for trying, Freya.

The mall, as I said, is doing better. We’re well over 50% full now, and I think we’ll get some more merchants soon as people notice us. If you’re such a merchant and haven’t heard of Mochastyle before, then I’d encourage you to take a look. You’ll have read in the forums about malls with “the cheapest rents in SL” all the time. Well, cut their prices in half and you’ll have what we charge.. about L$50 a week for our most expensive 40 prim booths. The L$1 stalls in the market, are I think all taken, but since some folk there are abusing their rights, I’ll be freeing some of them up soon.

And w00t! I got my Live Help 1st Team t-shirt this week. Thanks Lindens! I shout out loud enough when I think they get it wrong, so I’d best do as much when I think they got it right, lol.

So I’ll be disappearing soon. Not for too long though. I’m away for the holiday and should be back before the new year to cause yet more drama and tears on the SL forums. So, to those of you I won’t see before I leave, have a wonderful holiday, whatever you celebrate, may it be all you hoped for, and more.
