Hello, The Typist wanted to say a few words. Seven months ago my computer ceased operating. This was at a very unfortunate time. I had just finished my building that, sadly, took me six months to finish. The build was not in place long before the box on my desk became a non-computer. Thankfully, just this week hard drive #2 was cracked and the backups of most of my textures, sculpts and other data has been recovered. Hard drive #1 should be recovered by next week.
I was a naïve optimist and believed it would, like the “The Modern Prometheus”, be brought back to life. Seeing a chance to rent a lot with more prims, next to a place dear to my heart, I moved the building. (Using a friend’s computer.) That was months ago and I currently get into SL once a week to pay rent.
My current projection is that I will be able to get a new computer in December.
SPOILER: Revealing My Alts.
I have tried to keep some RP going on the forum. I apologize to anyone if I dropped the ball.
Osric Worbridge: My primary in New Babbage. He, technically, is the builder and land holder.
Cadmus Lupindo: The Most Interesting Man in New Babbage, is the owner of Ahab’s Revenge Whale Oil Company and Ahab’s Bane Tavern. “Stay thirsty my friends.”
Odnar Halberstadt: Miner from Falun. Recipient of the Order of the Milk Bottle.
Gil the Sea Urchin: Lives in Vernian Sea and does not like his fish cooked.
I look forward to making my build better for RP and hanging out. Hopefully I will be able to have a real Grand Opening in January.
I would love to hear suggestions for fun events that could be held at Ahab’s.
I love the name “Gil” for a sea urchin :D Will sacrifice some old floppy disks in honor that you get a new computer soon!(I never know who is who in alt land-thanks for the heads up)
I hope to see you around town soon! Glad to know that all of those others hadn’t gone away either. I’ve revealed my alts before when I was offline for an extended period, so welcome to the unfortunate club of creative people, I guess! :)
Gilhooly and Gil should hang out more.
I’m fascinated by the Order of the Milk Bottle and I wonder if that’s an aspiration I should have. Is there an Order of the Pie? (which I would like better)
((and good luck in dealing with the new desk paperweight you have acquired–I hope your files and textures are all restored to safety soon))
The New Babbage Wiki has information about the Order of the Milk Bottle:
Thanks Miss Book! I will check that out…a good reminder of the wealth of info in the archives and records :)
Need a bartender at the Ahab’s revenge? *grins*
Hurry back soon! I haven’t gotten nearly enough time with the Captain.
I would be happy to discuss employment Ms. Macbain. Perhaps…
*Cadmus pushes the Typist out of the way*
My Dear Star, Why don’t you come over and have some drinks. I would be happy to look over your…resume and perhaps we can come to an arrangement.
*chuckles* I’ll happily come let you have a look at my…resume. I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until I put back into port.
Unless, of course, you can catch me at sea.
MISTER CALAMY! Have the crew Beat to Quarters! I want the Leviathan prepped and ready to launch by Eight Bells!
The Red Cat is a fleet ship, Captain. I think you’ll have a hard time doing more than sighting my stern. *grins*
*Thinks about sighting her stern*
Hard-drive #1 I am told is empty. A second look will be made.
The data recovered from hard-drive #2 saves me from a loss of 5 months work so I am happy.
