i just realised this morning (i’m a fast one i tell ya) that this is the first time in nearly eight years that i haven’t had some form of paid virtual world home
when i started in Second Life i was a paid member and soon rented a 4096 sm plot and built a gallery for a Deaf artist. Sunny Whitfield and i were neighbors way back then and we each eventually “bought” sims
after closing the SL estate (my last SL login was feb. 22, 2011), i went to Reaction Grid where subQuark had started Enclave Harbour. first it was a “white label” private grid and then we moved to be part of the community grid
we (i) quickly overloaded the resources and we needed more power! so we went to SimHost for two years and that was a great learning experience and it was neat to have our own box
once i figured out Kitely (it took me a year!), it was an easy sell to get us moved because the price was crazy cheap ($35 versus $159) and the resources of 100,000 prims and 100 avatars was amazing
times change and for the first time in 8 years i don’t have a paid virtual home!
Hax Nuit is still in Kitely but it’s a free account (i’ll keep an eye on traffic and probably offer it as a freebie OAR)
i guess Sim-on-a-Stick is my home and i’m truly a virtual hermit now!
*time to rediscover myself and be all Zen-like*
