Midnight Rendezvous


I got together with Megan about 1:00AM this evening, over in Second Life. I still can’t figure out how to set our home to my home location, since she bought the land, but it was fun to hang out, dance together in the living, kiss her goodbye, the usual stuff. The nice thing about spontaneously going out dancing in SL is that you don’t have to even get dressed or go anywhere — a few clicks and you’re there.

I’m going to have to pester SL support to figure out how two people can share a home. She created a group and deeded the land to it, and I joined the group, but I still can’t set my home location to our house. So each time I log in to Second Life I show up in some random place I was last week. Based on what I’ve seen so far, though, there are some bugs in the SL server software — I’ve had a few things not work and then suddenly start working, and in one case the SL knowledge base said it was a known bug. Frankly, I’m amazed how well it does work, given all that’s going on there.



  1. I wasn’t shocked. Althought that spiral staircase will take some getting used to. Can we leave an upstairs window open and just fly into the bedroom that way?

  2. Flying in windows works well.

    I set my home to the on10 island long ago (I’m a Second Life hobo – no property).

    I haven’t been there for a while (got tired of the tiresome downloads), but I would think you can set home to anywhere you are welcome. It’s on the small map view, I think. Definitely somewhere.

    Also, you can always snag a landmark and put it in your inventory. That’s how I make the rounds of known places that I’ve visited before. Before you exit SL, just teleport to your favorite starting point and there you will be the next time you log in, stretched out on the sofa. Or whatever.

    Have fun.

  3. Hi Dennis, I should have known you’d be up on SL. Is there any aspect of technology you don’t dabble in? 🙂

    I’ve set my home position to a neutral public location now, but I still can’t set it to our/Megan’s house — I get an error saying that this land belongs to somebody else. (Not those exact words, but that’s the gist of it.)

    So I’m still working on it.
