Winterstock in SecondLife

With the season to be jolly ahead of us I wanted to blog about the Merry Christmas Sim known as Winterstock! If you are in a seasonal mood here is the place to do some shopping in a very warm ;) winter scene. Ewan Mureaux and Antonia Marat have done a great job here making a Christmas themed sim! Be sure to check it out it will be worth it, I promise. Here is a vid to bring you in the mood of the Christmas spirit. Winterstock SLurl

Enjoy and lots of love.

2 years of Openlife.

Openlife exist 2 years this friday 'WOOT'
This saturday we will celebrate this fact on Vonda from 10am to 12pm UTC. Hosts are Dawny Cinquetti and KirstenLee Cinquetti. Everyone is welcome!

I remember the first day I signed up as if it was yesterday. We were glad not to get logged after 5 minutes and TP was not even implemented yet lol. We (KirstenLee and me) saw other Openlife residents that day and had already lots of fun. Getting stuck ie not be able to move or wanting to do things too fast for the server. But fun it was. In that first week we logged in every now and then to see how it was progressing. I did show my face in the chatroom but not much. In a few months things progressed fast. Moving was easier and TP was available. Thats when we got hooked on Openlife. The atmosphere there was so relaxed. Nothing hasty like other worlds. People were building and chatting with each other like the build they made didn't needed to be finished....
Meetings with the CEO/Founder of Openlife were special. We were talking about the future of Openlife. He asked us what we wanted to have to make the Openlife experience much better.

Openlife meeting one year ago.


So this was discussed and agreed on by all. This made me curious about the CEO/Founder and he turned out to be a great person that I have much respect for! KirstenLee and I wanted to support him and rented a region on mainland 'Corinth' and had much fun there building and having fun with friends.

In the mean time KirstenLee had offered to build Openlife a viewer based on his other worlds viewer. That was appreciated of course. So much that he got employed by Openlife. Then Openlife saw an increase in sign ups and demands for regions, so we gave our region up so that a new owner could have the pleasure of it. Time went by and progress was made, credits etc. Sakai Openlife could use a hand in the forum and I said to be willing to help out there. That was really a day job sometimes but fun to do! When time went on and me being a member of the team I had alot of talks with KLee and Sakai about Openlife, this encouraged me wanting to help out in Openlife more than just being a forum moderator. Thats where my role as a Resident Liason in Openlife is based on. As someone said it very nicely, "I have a direct line with the Openlife team". We can find out if its needed to sent a 'support' ticket or a 'contact' us form.

Time moved on fast in Openlife.



People left and new people came, some of the people that left I have still contact with. Residents I never talked with are now friends and so on. It is a relaxed word and have 1 thing in mind. To build in peace and have many friends in the mean time. I hope that my contribution will be that this feeling will be brought out to new residents of Openlife and they bring it over to others inworld :)

Sakai, KLee and me, alias the 3 stooges ;)

Now we are about to celebrate Openlife's second birthday. Thank you for the oppertunity to contribute to it..... "CHEERS"

Another Blog

Yes another blog, everyone does it, so why not me ;)
I have no clue what to blog about. I guess it will be a mix about Openlife, Second Life and Blue Mars. Since Openlife is mixed with my real life it can be that I blog about my personal life too.

A little about me.
I started Second Life on 02-22-2007 and had no clue what it would bring to me, it opened my world. The chance to talk to people all over the world was and still is awesome to me! So it was no surprise that I became a mentor when I was 5 months old.
And then I met KirstenLee Cinquetti. It was love at first sight for the both of us. After 2 months having a relation in Second Life he moved from the UK to Holland to be with me.
The most of you know he makes viewers and thats why Openlife hired him to make the Openlife viewer! We started there in 19-02-2008 almost since the beginning of its exsistence. For me always wanting to help out I became a forum moderator for Openlife and recently a Resident Liason. Being close to the Openlife devs makes me realize what Second Life had to be back then and I am glad to be a part of Openlife's evaluation!
Most people dont realize how far Openlife has become in such a short time! And I'm sure that many new things like SSO or PoG will come.
Well thats about it for now, its my first blog and since I'm not native english please forgive me if my sentences are not correct!
