Its interesting

I remember this visit to Storybrook Gardens not  so  long  ago.

Its the one sim I always love to visit as it changes with the seasons and is so pretty and photoesque. (that’s not a real word but it is now…ha ha)

I love creativity and people who think about things such as seasons and how the plants look, how the snow would lay etc.

That’s what makes a virtual world a fascinating place to visit. When reality is mirrored and yet at the same time you know you cant stay, but really want to.

When I do return I will certainly be visiting again.

Insanity

Today is the day I sat with an investigator and finally spoke about what has happened to me for the last 4 months and hopefully the people responsible get held to account and justice served once they have done all their investigations.

SL situation has been nothing in terms of the violation I’ve had recently and in context if the Lindens don’t rectify it, it’s not the end of my happiness and existence. Everything is about context. 

I not so long ago aluded to data breaches.

Suffice to say because it’s still at a certain level of confidentiality I can’t say too much, despite my great need to shout to the rafters what they did to me. But eventually I will.

In the UK there is a organisation  called The Information Commisioner (ICO). 

If your data has been breached, they investigate and consequently can instigate fines against organisations for failure to protect data. These fines can be up to £500,000 and carry with them other penalties and measures organisations need to rectify and adhere to. 

Well the ICO have taken my complaints very seriously due to the nature of the breach as I have another level of protection which is about being legally privileged.

The devastation caused to me relates to information gained which was highly confidential and was gained by abuse of two individuals who used systems for their own gains. 

Soon I will speak about it openly, but not till they have been investigated and dealt with.

But for me today it has beenemotional but also a relief to finally start seeing something happening.

One thing I know, justice sometimes late, eventually does come.

Pigs will fly

I regard life as an adventure most of the time.

Peaks and troughs happen along the way which we learn from. We meet people that often just pass through, but some who stay with us on the adventure.

We are educated in many ways by often the simple things we do and experience and often take for granted those moments as they are so usual and often. We don’t actually stop and think because they’re so usual and often.

Last night whilst faffing around on my PC and sorting out my rather huge SL photo and video collection, I stopped and had a moment.

No, I didn’t sit and pray and get all emotive. I just stopped and had a moment and thought wow.

A total big wow!

Have you ever sat and thought back to 30 years ago?

We only imagined the technology we have now. Video calling to me was stuff that was just imagination I used to see on tv shows. Back in the day it was shows such as Space 1999 or Get Smart. It was fun and imaginative but never real.

Wind clocks forward to today. We have it.

We have virtual reality, we have immersive reality.

Our virtual relationships have progressed from typing text chat to interactive ones. We can emote, touch and fully feel like we are with others who are thousands of miles away.

Who would have thought? I guess those folk with the wild imaginations from our childhoods that wrote these thoughts down as otherwise how did we get here.

So, last night I contemplated this and then contemplated all the horrid things people are doing to each other in the world and how we hope for this to change. I truly believe it will because if we can achieve these unbelievable things, we can achieve anything.

Pigs will fly and it will rain men. Lots of men. 😊 well that’s my little sideline wish anyhow.
Have a great day and I’ll see you in SL.

A jump from Second Life to High Fidelity

A quick ten second overview video of this world. I clearly need to get the correct head and hand gear but for now using a mouse and keyboard.

I’m  impressed with the feel of it, though its unusual when so used to SL and how it works.

BUT I foresee this is competition for SL and for creative sorts, I think this will be pretty exciting.

I stopped and had a voice chat with an American man who was really helpful and explained some bits that I wasn’t sure about . Such as at the moment its in voice chat but they are looking at an eventual chat feature.

My thoughts on this? I’m definitely staying in and will play with it and learn I think.

Excuse the pretty poor video of it but hey, its a definite different experience for me and so I had to record differently for today.

I need to learn how to build as seriously I hate wearing my hair in a bun in RL,  let alone in  a virtual  life.

Where there’s a will

There is always a way.

So says my barrister friend today when I told him of the events of the last few weeks.

I’m not sure my SL dilemmas constitutes a barrister, although tempting an idea it is to involve one. 

I will give the lab people a chance as I figure I’ve never had an issue before.

So today I have sent a formal letter to them which is signed for and tracked so I will know when they get it. 

I’m guessing they are more used to people emailing or ranting over the telephone. However with my law head on, things are done in writing. 

It also gives them a chance to address concerns I have financially and for them to investigate and explain how since I’ve not had access and been away that  at the very least in terms of £ sterling over £60 has been taken from my pay pal and credit card. Not possible while I was in scotland as couldn’t play SL! Not have I spent that much in the past few weeks prior.  Hmm let me see £1.5 k invested in Luxebox which by the time linden lab sort this out I will have automatically lost because on the 1st of the month  you get kicked from the group to rejoin for the next months box event.

By heck I shall just smile as that is all I can do at the moment. 
The issue?

Well I have an American male friend in Sl who was also hacked. His account had 9 k taken and transferred to an Emma. 

Now the wierd thing is I’m implicated somehow but don’t know why. By the nature that I know him?

I didn’t even know about his alt. Anyhow none of it makes sense.

My computer was hacked and it had been for weeks before this.i didn’t know at the time, only I did notice my connection kept disappearing and I found it hard work doing anything. I even blamed my sky internet.

But it wasn’t because lots of odd things went on. Accounts kept locking me out in Facebook, yahoo, pay pal, hotmail.

My computer is sorted and virus free. No other person can backfiring or whatever they call it access it now.

So I shall be patient.

Seriously in this world there are way better things to worry about.

So I’m trying not to. But SL is my escape and my creative outlet. 

Damn the person who did this because when I find them, my wrath will not be held back.
