This morning, after some shopping, I was unpacking my new purchases in peace and quiet, a disaster happened. I am not sure what I did, but all of a sudden my screen was brownish and I could not zoom back to the normal view. I tried to reset the camera position, but it seemed I was stuck in between two wall, though I had not teleported and was still in my skyhome. Grrr… I re-logged, usually the solution to many problems, but when I logged back in, it was still the same.
I went through all kind of settings and was no longer annoyed, but a slight panic was happening. So, I teleported to a previous location, the shopping event I was just before this happened, hoping this would solve it. Nope. It seemed I could walk and turn, but I could not see myself. Just the dark brown screen. I teleported to another location, a club and finally to a sandbox. Nothing helped.
Standing in this sandbox, I got an IM from stranger, asking me why I was wearing a complete bar with bar stools….
Turned out, I indeed double clicked something while unpacking…the Dutchie Vintage cafe Bar I had rezzed for a photo, and I was wearing it. Duh. It just never occured to me to check what I was wearing!
Oh..and my sincere apologies to the shoppers I must have knocked over, when I was frantically teleporting around, with my bar…
Anyway, after this disturbing incident, which shows one can still be a N00b, even after almost 12 years in Second Life, I was in the mood for something cheerful and went to explore a place I had on my list: Tralala’s Diner!
The name is happy, the place however not so much.
Don’t get me wrong, I love places like this and Tralala’s Diner is certainly worth a visit. There is a lot to see when wandering around, I really like all the details and the overall ambiance of this place!
Wonderful for taking pictures too, a welcome distraction on an eventful morning!
