Yes, this morning my monitor passed away. I felt it was about to happen, poor thing.
Hopefully, it is still guaranted ! Gonna be back next week with a free new monitor ! It is a Iyama ProLite B2475HDS-B1, we discovered they have short lifetime (more or less 1 year, mine is 1 year and a half, lucky me). But I also ordered a new monitor from another brand, in case of (and because I’m willing to get a 27″) : it’s a AOC e2752Vq ! I don’t know much about this brand, but the critics are really good (great colors after a few settings, good response time, my numer one specs !)
I was willing to blog all the new juicy stuff you can get at FaMESHed this month, but my laptop has an ATI video card (powerful but LL does not like ATI…), and I got too many weird red/green/yellow artifacts on SL UI to stay logged in ! So here are some details about the look I wanted to share with you ! No more teasing next week !
Styles Details :
UPDATE 3rd january 2013 : Curio is officialy back in Second Life, Gala Phoenix’s won ! Official announcement : “Great news everybody! A settlement has been reached in my legal dispute and Curio is officially back in business! Please visit curioonline.org for more information. I’d also like to take a minute to thank you all for all of your support, generosity and encouragement throughout this last year. Thank you so much everybody, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!”
UPDATE : Events raised enought money to help Gala Phoenix deal with justice (and give a warning to all content thief down here in Second Life world !). On monday 23rd of July 2012, she managed to raise a total of $24,561 ! Congrats ! Keep us up to date about the situation !
We need to unify, content creators, fashion lovers, Curio fans, … All together, because this is an important cause. Gala Phoenix, creator of famous Curio skins, has been trapped in a serious and unfair copyright conflict. I say unfair, because I do believe in her honesty. After accusing another person to copy her work, she has been accused herself, and the problem is that this person intented a complain, a takedown notice, a legal court action asking to remove the skins from Second Life… This has much more impact for LL, and Gala Pheonix can’t continue to sell content and her skins are offline. She needs to clear her name in court, in America but also in Canada. She needs some financial help. And we are here. This is not just about Gala Phoenix creations, this is about showing how disgusted we are, how we need to prove we are here, willing to make things right, willing to step up and say no, we are not lambs anymore, we won’t let those thieves claim rights about our creations. In, and out of Second Life. We are living important days, our community needs to show its will to make things change. Curio’s case is a symbol, we will not be safe until we prove we are brave enought to fight. Time has come. Help Gala Phoenix, I think this case may change our future in Second Life, and digital copyright infringement in general.

Pacific Crisis Fundraiser
March 16th – April 10th
Location : Here
Help Japan fundraiser event
Location : here
Donating to the Japanese Red Cross charity.
Bounce participates and I’m putting those items for sale. Exclusive colors ! I love Japan, and I’m very emotional. Those days have been very hard and I hope we can help.
More infos :
“An emergency fundraising effort for the victims of the crisis in the Pacific that hit on the 10th/11th of march is being set up.
SL is an international community, with a strong base in Japan specifically. This disaster is worldwide and affects us all, as a community SL has risen up time and time again to help out in times of distress, including very recently.
In september 2010 11,000 us dollars was raised for the pakistan flood crisis relief fund (UNICEF) at an sl event. An event organised in four days. This is an example of what our community can do, and we are attempting to prepare for a similar, simple but effective, event.
We are calling for anyone who wishes to help with this fundraiser. We will be providing vendors that donate 100% of sales to a charity account (Charity Shelter) for people to place in their stores and at an event location. The products in these vendors don’t have to be new, but the more new and exclusive items available the more money we will raise, so even a variation of an existing product is appreciated.
We welcome any and all participation and interest in this event – if you’d like to participate as a designer please go to – http://www.tinyurl.com/pacificfund
We require all brands involved to have one product sold at 100% to the charity, however if more than one item is available the others can be at 100% or 50%.
Please note that 100% of all money raised will go to the charity Americares (http://www.americares.org/). Land was donated by Glam Affair and all volunteers are giving their time without charge.”
