 15 Year Anniversary (Permalink)
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Katie Melua - Nine Million Bicycles
Topic: Miscellaneous

Looks like I missed the anniversary by two days.

 1998 - 2013

15 years. 15 years. And this site is still sitting around in some shape or form even though no one visits it anymore.

I'm also surprised this blog feature hasn't been shut down. It seems everything else is gone, even the HTMLgear guestbook I used to have.

Ah, well. Here's to 15 more years...

 Tripod locks down. (Permalink)

Tripod made an announcement today. Free members can no longer use FTP or File Manager. In order to keep building your site, you have to use their Webon feature.

 

EDIT: Ah, looks like they added a new sentence to the bottom explaining that this affects only new members that signed up after the 23rd. Earlier members get to keep their FTP/FM. That's good news!

 EBTS4 - Progress (Permalink)
Now Playing: Zoë Badwis - Freefallin'
Topic: Active Worlds

I realized the world didn't have a default groundcover so I was able to go down a bit below ground. After thinking about it, I figured it'd be neat to have a little waterfall come down and have some buildings around it. It's the details that's going to be a pain, I'm sure.

I have to break up the one room houses with walls, toss in furniture to make each room, etc... What I'm currently unhappy with is how 'unnaturesy' it is. I was hoping to weasel in more trees and plants. I guess I just gotta stick more around the area.

 The Extreme Builder Talent Show IV (Permalink)

EBTS IV

EBTS4 started yesterday and runs til January 31st. I snagged up a lot but as you can see, it's pretty empty right now. Taking a few minutes to adjust to the new world. It's a 6x6 lot and anything goes!

The prizes don't really interest me this time around (I don't win anything at these events anyways so...). They're worlds of various sizes given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

I most likely will end up doing one of my PDL Builds. "Pure Dumb Luck" where I just tinker and tinker and something forms out of the mess. hehe.

 2010 Holiday Village in Winter - Bakery (Permalink)
Mood:  caffeinated
Now Playing: Lucky Star by Prima Donna (Tim Dawes remix)
Topic: Active Worlds
A couple days ago, I decided to finally take up one of the contest lots. I didn't want to do the train station and I was split between the toy store and bakery. I finally decided to do the bakery. I did lots of searching on Google's image search to find various bakeries.

I don't think I'm done with it. I keep walking around because it feels like I've missed something. Contest doesn't end for a while so I can just keep tinkering with it when ideas come.

 Activeworlds - Holiday village in Winter (Permalink)
I guess it's that time of year again. There's a Holiday Village contest in Winter world on Activeworlds. I built on a lot but I don't think it's one of the lots that would win a prize. I had fun tinkering with it though. Not sure if I'm done but I think I got everything as I possibly can.

 

 A Quick Glimpse
 

It's all fun and games till someone loses an arm.
 
Don't they look lovely?
 
Glimpse of bedroom

That's what I slapped together. I am incredibly thankful that the 'scale' feature exists. That makes it tons easy to resize objects to make everything fit and to create new stuff.

 

Ah, and a quick glimpse of when I started - and almost ready to call it quits because they were horribly pieced together!

 Active Worlds (Permalink)
Active Worlds

I took a quick break from landscaping and started working on a building. Even though I get ideas, they really don't flesh out well when I'm building. Sometimes something new pops up or I take a different path... It's just all like playing with clay. I have no set goal. I just have a little idea and hope it comes out okay. hehe.

 

PWI

The guild has been quiet for a few weeks now. Sort of. Either that or I'm coming on at the wrong times. Some members keep saying that the leaders rarely pop on anymore and that they're off playing other games. I know they played Battle of Immortals and all but eh... All I have done lately is go in to do the daily Crazy Stone quest and now I'm pretty much running out of money so I won't be surprised if I forget to log in eventually. Just like last year... hehe.

 Old Tripod Message Boards (Permalink)
Mood:  surprised
Topic: Tripod
I was looking through disks for screenshots when I came across a folder that contained old copies of the message boards that Tripod used to host! It was a huge surprise because I've looked for these message boards quite a few times over the years but my searches came up empty.

To come across them was like... wow. I thought they were just gone or that I had them on a disk that disappeared. I uploaded the messages to FG Archives.

Fantasy Gathering on Tripod Messageboards

 

1999... What a blast from the past.
