Vint and Codie put together a blogger party at CodeRed. Both Codie and Vint are really good in the marketing stuff, the sim filled way to early. Some how then both missed to get a DJ, and the location was a little wrong. But i hope none of the guest noticed anything of this, I was a little worried when i found the surl going into my shop, well, also would have been a little fun, all shopping at my shop instead of partying *giggle*

With just some 20 minutes to spare Codie came on and we fixed a landing zone on the root, I asked who was going to dj. No they hadn't fixed that. Quickly i looked at friends online and found Balp, convinced him to DJ and the party could start. They two might be to of the best artists, but I'm not sure about the organizer party. The rest of the party was really great and i have so fun in my new Robot outfit. Just to bad i was Sunday and i had to leave early. Could have stayed much longer with my love.


Reasonable resemblance

Raul found a cool site, but in difference to him I share the image used for the resemblance *giggle*.

Blog Action day, and this year it's all about the environment. What is the environment for us second lifers, does it really matter to us or is the main issue something about griefers, ad farms of bad builders. It the main environment lagging sims, bed written scripts, stupid spamming stuff? Or is there something more in our lives we should look at? The second life environment is all different that out RL one, but in the end the problems here and in RL are quite similar it's about limited resources. Some of the SL resources are quite easy to see, the number or prims from one. Then there is 0 left it's ended you cant add more. Others are harder to follow, runtime in client and simulators form one. Most of us have seen a sim lag to death, gray people all around us as the bandwidth and server resources end.


Lights on Linden Labs

Hi Linden Labs,

You liked feed back, so this is going to be one more LL bashing session. Ginsu posted a blog entry, stating that Linden are the most transparent of all public company she have seen. Is that that case I'm sorry about the state of information in the US. Yes they do some thinks right, but to be honest, if it wasn't for Chrome and Codie, I would have left SL. These two friend are actually what keeps me coming back to SL. The rest of my friends I would miss you, yes and i would be hard to leave you, I would be sad, but i could live with that, and Linden some times pissed me enough to be close to that border where it would have been worth it. However the love of my sis and my girlfriend keep me getting back in.

To be honest the request for feedback, is one more example of bad communication. It takes up the blog about VAT, “VAT are you talking about?” as good communication! Did you ever care enough to read the comment on that before calling it good? That long entry is full of legal errors spotable by a novice like me, Starting with the easiest to verify, your VAT number. All EU VAT numbers start with a country code. No EU country have EU, you can register in EU you have to register in ONE country! The second one, until the sudden day they payed the tax, after that day they are paying the tax, but just that now the price is 25% higher because I'm Swedish. Yes my tax level is high, but it would have been nice to get notice of at 25% extra fee, I have learned that they promised to give 60 days warning on land price raises, be fore i started SL. That much more that was given, in fact I didn't get any notice form LL until the official blog. I still haven't got any mail, but on my account there is a asterisks so i might pay it.

Second I had an inventory loss for me very valuable stuff, my favorite dances, not a word from the lindens until they closed the bug report system, your bug report is now gone because we didn't like that system. Thats all, Love the feed back, i hear many other have problems with inventory losses, it keep me from shopping, I'm very very conservative shopper now, the loss of my dances, the blatant ignorance from the lindens. To get stuff it have to be something I really really like, and that I'm not suer i dare getting it, so i have to be cheep as well,if i loose it so i can get it back. When will Linden tell all resident that there still haven't delivered voice to all platforms? When will Linden's foll fill the big wish of getting back a usable user interface? Good there is the Nicholaz build, more stable and with a user interface that works. Also i don't care about voice personally, tried dislikes and never going to use again.


SL Price level up 25% thats what happend


Originally uploaded by Nadine Nozaki

Tell what they did was to raise the cost with 25% and not telling before and trying to blame EU for it. According to there blog that have been paying VAT for us all the time as they are supposed to do. Until last month the VAT was included in the price, the priced was VAT inclusive, now suddenly they isn't.

Now in the communication Linden Labs finally cleared out that they screwed us EU citizens, they raised our prices in a unethical way. Good that they finally clear that out. They also announced that this raise was so unethical that they backed on the time frame for the mainland fee's. This issue is not about EU taxes, it's about what price Linden takes out of it's customers, until now the price have been the same, e.g.. the end user price have been the same, but tax levels have differ. Not the end price will differ.

Linden also makes some remarked how bad the VAT works in the worlds today, something i fully agree to. They however make small mistake, the EU is no "European legislation ", the EU makes recommendations sometimes mandatory, that are incorporated into the nations laws of each country. These laws differ a little or much between the different EU states. Making it almost impossible to understand. Skatteverket have some information how this is incorporated into Swedish law. Lindes also missed that they can choose to just register in one country "The trader is free to chose any country it wishes." some EU states have lower VAT that Sweden, I would love to pay Spanish, or UK VAT instead. (The rules for that is in "Regulation (EC) No 792/2002").
