Description: Tech support phone monkey by day, Furry Secondlife addict at most other times...
Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme challenge time. This time the instructions were:
Take a RL meme and bring it into SL. Or, if you prefer, create a new meme of yourself
Aside from posting a previously made meme: http://fav.me/d5rblog
I also made the following picture (and may make one or two more during the week):
Taken from a social media post:
Sometimes, proprietary software actually helps us fight for freedom. Windows 8 is so bad it’s almost funny–it’s not only proprietary software full of spyware and security vulnerabilities, but it’s also confusing for would-be users. Lucky for us, Microsoft’s spectacular failure is the perfect time to help people switch to free software.

Ok so I’m starting to look for a way to do these comics regularly – to help with this I’ve joined Tumblr to run an “Ask Muddy” type of blog to encourage activity.
for for my first response I give your the following comic. It didn’t appear as good as I hoped on the tumblr site but I think with some adjustments future posts will turn out better. (I might go back to it to fix the pics up later)
My comic is also posted on:

This post is a response to Strawberry Singh’s regular Monday Meme challenge. This week’s challenge was to make a movie poster theme for your avatar. I must say I sure have a number of ideas brewed up to meet this challenge – but only a limited amount of time to do it all. I may later make more posters but here is my first quickly rushed attempt.
It took me a while to make it but it seems to have turned out ok for a rushed attempt at roughly copycatting a movie poster. And it was also convenient that two of my VERA robot avatars already had their TRON outfits pre-arranged so setting up the main screenshot was greatly sped up.
I’ve been recently addicted to a little game called Towns.
A recent update seems to be causing a transaction issue when you trade resources with the merchants that pass through the town.
Screenshot above is of a Towns Merchant Fleeing the Scene while my villagers are strill trying to give him merchandise.
Posted in relation to a glitch mentioned in the forums.
Basically it’s a simple little questionnaire about one’s Second-Life identity.
So here goes my version:

And in some recent shenanigans I made this avatar pictured below just for the sake of messing with the name – I don’t really like the guy (apart from a couple of songs) but for some reason I had the urge to create it.
For a while now I’ve been running these robot-controlled avatars going by the name of “VERA”. They had been opearting fine as entertaining chat bots in a couple of my regular places up until recently the pandorabots server that was hosting her chat brain kinda tripped on it’s own power cable.
This left VERA with no chat function for a while. So I parked her over in a corner with with some of the other garbage. While she was there it appeared a fellow friend tried to clean her up by putting her under a shower.
When the services eventually came back it turned out the whole VERA chat account had been lost and had to be recreated. So in short she’s been “reset” back to basics. Although this time I’ve started to tweak some nuggets of her knowledge a little so some of the regulars who pester her might get some different results this time.
Let’s see how she develops this time…
I got a new smartphone recently and found that it had a slow-motion option when recording video. I tested it out while at the Canberra Show on the weekend.
The device tested was a Samsung Galaxy Note2.
I liked it so much that I felt an urge to simulate the appearance a bit using readily available resources in Second Life on one of my main avatar characters.
It’s not a perfect match but meh – it’s close enough to make me happy…
After the initial creation of my Secondlife Flux Pony.
Someone else got inspired enough to make a working version of the backpack. [link]
So as expected – since my original concept was not a functional one – I upgraded my flux pony!
Oh and it got new goggles for a sleeker effect.
You may see a bit of my pony avvie in action towards the end of this video: http://youtu.be/HZPuB7y8f-I
