: PeterT June 27, 2007, 05:42:45 AM
This board is where new SParkers can initially meet existing members of the community and find a buddy who will show them the ropes in SPii.

If you are a new SParker then you should post a message in here telling people a bit about yourself - but remembering that you must not give away an personal info (you should only ever use your avatar name, and you should keep secret things like where you live, where you go to school, your email/MSN details).  This is a public board - anyone with internet access can read it.

Check out the Schome Park buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies) in the wiki for more info about buddies.

I've just signed up two new members - jitiner and Galad - if you are watching this jitiner and Galad then Hi and welcome to the schommunity.  :)

The gang (hope they don't mind me calling them that) are looking forward to finding out about you and showing you around in Schome Park - so go ahead and post a response to this message to say hello and tell us a bit about yourself (remembering not to give away any personal info that might let someone locate you in the real world.

Original Sparkers - can we keep this thread reasonably clear of in-jokes and chat amongst yourselves, the idea was this would be a place where new Sparkers could post up introduction messages and you could respond with welcome messages... I've moved your messages to a separate thread in this board.

thanks

Hi

I am new to Schome Park/SPii. I have done a lot of sailing on the Main Grid and have sent a sailboat to the ferry(wo)man to bring into Schome for playing, racing, experimenting. I am fairly awful at editing (It was three months before I found out how to move an object!) but have done lots of sailing in RL (including racing) as well as SL.

I am also interested in the physics discussions (are we still doing that?) but anything really that looks exciting! Oh, looking at some discussions, maybe I should give the ferry(wo)man my working parachute: it was very useful for base jumping from outer space...

Anyone like to Buddy me?  Pretty please?

Martin

Well, I like sailing and have raced quite a bit (mainly for the county youth sailing), as well as being extremely keen on physics and politics, so I will be your buddy if you wish, but Topper has pretty much the same interests as well, so you might like to talk to him, especially as I'm away over the weekend.  :)

Hi All,

I've just received my avatar, and have spent a little time in SecondLife - in fact just enough to realise I'm going to need quite a bit of help to get to grips with SPii.

If anyone would be willing to be my buddy - I'd be very grateful  :)

Thaaaaaaaaaaaanks
Well, someone should offer to be your buddy soon (I'd love to, but I have problems getting into Schome Park), so for the meantime I'll help you. If you haven't done so already, you need to download the Second Life client (the program used to get into Schome Park) from here (http://secure-web13.secondlife.com/community/downloads.php). After that, you'll have to wait until someone offers to be your buddy before you can log in, but it's perfectly simple: just type your name (Dudefish Schomer) and your password into the login section on the client, and you're away. Your avatar will already be created, and your buddy will tell you how to change what it looks like, as well as a lot of other stuff. :)

Trix

You CANNOT get in without your buddy Dudefish, so I'm afraid you'll have to wait.

Hi people - or should I say avs - I'm another newbie to schomepark, though I've been playing quiet a while in the main grid. I'm told I have an avatar ready for me, just haven't managed to log him/her/it into the system yet  :(

Interests - um - pretty eclectic really.  Sort of stuff going into my trunk is a covered wagon, tepee, bbq set ...

Anybody up for being my buddy? - and any other suggestions on what to bring with me?

Hello,
I am Dudefish. I'm not sure how to log in or create an avatar yet.
Please could somebody tell me how?
Thaaaaaaaaaaaanks

You cannot log in or create an avatar at this point - once you have got a buddy and added info about who your buddy is to the Schome Park buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies) in the wiki then I will set up your avatar. You can then log in to Schome Park (ideally at the same time as your buddy so they can show you around and introduce you to folk).

If you are not sure how to add your info to the buddy page - then ask your buddy!    :o

It's the same client - when you log in it takes you to Schome Park - but I haven't set up your avatar yet.
I will do that as soon as I notice that you have filled in your buddy info on the Schome Park buddies page ... near the bottom of the page ... (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs)

I clearly need to clarify my email to folk!

Hi
I'm FI schomer, and all I know is that you have an Avatar, and you go round in the virtual world and do things... ???
I'm interested in Reading and maths and science and history...
And I've tried to navigate the forum a bit...
There is a Five hour time difference between me and the UK, but I can get up early on weekends and log onto schome by 1:00 UK time at the latest (if I wake up...)
Could I get a buddy?
Please!
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Kali Schomer July 01, 2007, 11:15:56 AM
Hey FI

5 hours, that is a big difference. Do you live in the US?

I will be your buddy if you want. I like science and maths (what i am doing for A level next year) and i love reading.

I'm on alot, and i should br back online soon (this evening) once my dad has fixed the laptop. I am normally on in the evening, anytime between 6 and 10 at. For you, i think, this would be between 1 and 5 in the afternoon? I can go on during the day now that i have finished school

It's up to you, but i would like to help  :)
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: FI Schomer July 01, 2007, 11:49:16 AM
Thanks!
I'll be able to go online again anytime you are today
(I'm hoping to do maths and science for A levels too! lol)
I will be online for a while now, as I'm the only one up for a couple of hours

FI Schomer :)

By the way, I'm in the Falkland Islands (FI)
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Kali Schomer July 01, 2007, 12:01:34 PM

Before I activate your avatar - which will be called TheKid rather than FI - you need to add your name and your buddies name to the list on the Schome Park buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs). If you are not sure how to do that then ask your buddy ...

lol
: Re: Welcome to SPii

: Kali Schomer July 01, 2007, 12:23:16 PM
It's ok, FI, i have changed it. But you can use the wiki and get used to changing it. I can just about manage that, even though technology hates me lol

The 'downloads' link is at the bottom left of the main SL page, in very small writing.
: Re: Welcome to SPii

Let us know when you get in OK - or indeed if you are having any more problems ...

PeterT
You would laugh at what happened to me when I first started trying use Second Life - I thought that if you clicked on the picture on the second life website that was how you got in - took me ages to work out that you didn't do it through your browser and needed the client!   ::) Ho hum - silly me ...

: Re: Welcome to SPii
: FI Schomer July 01, 2007, 01:24:14 PM
OK, there is a program running. It says

Do I say TheKid and my password, or click on New Account?
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Trixxiee Schomer July 01, 2007, 01:26:00 PM
You type in "TheKid" for your first name, "Schomer" for your second and then type in your password. When you click 'connect' it will know that you need to go to Schome Park and let you in automatically (at least it should). And then you're away! :)
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Kali Schomer July 01, 2007, 01:29:05 PM
Yeah, what Trix said lol

When in SPii, you should get a friendship offer. That is me, so accept it

Dear Peter Twining,
i have logged into second life twice now and it did not give my avatar any clothing. when i tried to put the default clothes on, it did not let me. I also went into the sco-op where i put on a top. the second time i logged in, this loaded immediatly so this cannot be a loading problem.my other complaint is that the first time i logged  in, i selected the male gender option, and what does it do, it makes my avatar a woman.
that is my list of complaints bye for now.

Hi Emodalek,
Good to know your problems have resolved themselves this time.  Lag and graphics can be a problem, and there is a weird issue that means all avs can appear female until they have fully loaded.  If you ever need help in-world just look out for someone else and ask them by typing into the chat box - we're a pretty friendly bunch. Welcome to Spii  ;)
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Fox Phlox July 01, 2007, 08:14:26 PM
Hi Emodalek - I'm glad your problem has been fixed. If you search through the library you will find at the bottom of your inventory you'll find items which your avatar can put on to appear male, female or even furry!

Non-humanoid avatars can be made by several methods. You can attach prims, as I believe Wheelo did, to make a sort of surrounding body. Alternatively, you can change the normal proportions and then add clothes on top, as I believe the Dragon avatar that was made does. There are probably other methods but I don't know of them.
: Re: Welcome to SPii

I saw one on the Main Grid which was just a small black scribble. I'm told you do that by folding your limbs up inside your body, but I'm not sure how that would work.

Hi, I'm a new Schome Parker, and I've been advised to find a buddy with similar interests to learn the ropes from.
I'm 16, just entering Sixth Form. I've been a long term NAGTY member, and I'm into science, especially physics.
I play various instruments, but only for personal entertainment.
Hoping someone can find the time to feed me the "Idiot's Guide" to Schome Park.
Thanks a lot,
Seph.

Hi Seph!

welcome to Schome. I'm sure if you read around the forum and the wiki you'll pick up some useful information, and check out the Buddy thread- you can post up a hello message there and somebody will come and be your buddy and show you round.

all the best

Hi Seph, Good to see another physicist joining those already on the team - you might be interested in the pages about the physics of Second Life on the wiki. Fox

Here is a link to one of the physics pages in the wiki (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Physics)

As a general rule the easiest way to find things in the wiki is to search for them - there is a search option on the left hand side of each wiki page - type in the text you are interested in then click on the Search button (not the Go button - cos that only searches for the word in page titles and is very picky!).

There is a link to the wiki from the top right of every forum page.

I'm a new Schome Parker and I really would like a buddy. I like purple and silver (duh), I play the trombone and I kind of like rock music. I'm 13. I like books, especially fiction (fantasy) and manga a lot. I quite like history and english. I hate sport. I've been in NAGTY for roughly 6 months and I really, really hope one of you kind dudes out there has the time to tell about whatever the fish I need to know about Schome park.

Hey Purplesilver, welcome to schome

I hope you like it here. We are all nice people. Well, most of the time lol

Whoever your buddy is, i'm sure they will be helpful. I have a buddy who is a newbie, FI.
In fact, i haven't seen him in a while. If anyone sees him, tell me ???

Hey Purplesilver, and like Kali said, welcome to Schome.

I assure you we don't bite...well, most of us don't :D

My computer doesn't run Second Life properly so I can't have a buddy, but I thought I'd say hi anyway, and there are a lot of people around now it's the holidays, so someone will be your buddy soon. :)

Kali - maybe send him a PM?

Hello PurpleSilver, and welcome to SchomeTM.  The holidays have started for me, so I have lots of free time (well until Sunday anyway)...I would be happy to buddy you until then.

I can't do this evening though, or 4-7 tomorrow, so any time apart from that is smashing.

Next step is for PurpleSilver to update the buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs) - this step is really just to make sure that you know how to edit a page in the wiki (it's scary at first but gets less scary once you've done it a few times) - if you need help yell cos someone will be happy to explain how to do it ...

Hi Patelio - Lots of folk seem to be off on hols at the moment, but I'm sure one of the SParkers will offer to buddy up with you soon (though many of them are not active until later in the day).

The Schommunity website (wiki/forum) is a bit daunting at the moment - we are thinking about how to try to make it easier for folk to cope with ...

One useful tip with the forum is to use the 'Show unread posts since last visit' option which appears at the top of most forum pages (between the purpleish bands and next to your image).

Enjoy.

Hey thanks i wud appreciate it :)
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: PeterT July 26, 2007, 12:12:50 PM
Hey thanks i wud appreciate it :)
Next step is to update the buddies wiki page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs) to show that you and Achilles are buddies.

Once you have done that I will set up your avatar and will PM you (ie send you a personal message in here) to tell you it is ready to go.

You need to log into the wiki before you can edit the buddies page - you use the same username and password as you use for the forum (you are already registered for the wiki). Once you are logged into the wiki and looking at the buddies page if you click on the edit tab you will be able to add the necessary info - copy the layout/formatting that the other people have used.

If you post a message in here once the wiki page is updated then I will spot it more quickly!

Yup tis don. I've sent you a PM with info about how to get into Schome Park now (click on the MY MESSAGES (1) link in the menu that runs along near the top of the forum window (below the news bar).

You might want to arrange to meet Achilles in there so he can show you around (to be honest Schome Park - like all of Second Life) is pretty dull unless there are other people there to interact with).

Hello,

I am new to the Schome Park project and I need a buddy.
I think that the Schome Park project is a very good idea and will be very interesting.
I like using the internet and my computer as I find it very interesting I also have several websites that I made by myself:

www.Evil-Games.co.uk
www.Ed-Host.co.uk
www.WackoFM.info

Anyway thats a bit about me and my Schome Name is: Edi Schomer.

I'd really appreciate it, if someone would be my buddy.

Thankyou for your time in reading this:D.

Welcome to Schome Park Edi. I'm impressed by your list of interests, particularly the website building. I've done a few myself and it can be pretty time consuming. There a many people who share your interests in Schome Park and I'm sure you'll enjoy it there.

Looking forward to meeting you inworld.

Welcome to Schome, Edi!

There's a buddies page on the wiki where you can find out more about our buddy scheme

http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies

You can join the wiki and create a user page there as well, tell people what you're interested in, what you hope to do in Schome (remember not to give out personal details though).

all the best

Thanks.

Hi Hamno37!

welcome to Schome! I am sure you'll find a buddy who will be up for showing you around. Everybody was new once, so don't be worried about asking any questions. Perhaps you'd like to put a post up on the "Introductions" section of the forum to tell everybody what you're interested in, how you got to find out about Schome, what you'd like to do here, etc (please don't put up personal details though).

Thanks for the welcome Edi.

I have already ventured into SPii a few times, the first time over a very slow connection, so thanks to all I (literally) ''bumped" into for your patience!  :)

The welcome pack was very useful. Emodalek took me on a whistle stop tour of the Island yesterday which ended with a crash landing at the bottom of the Log Flume! (I tried to upload a picture of this incident onto the wiki, but it won't let me at the moment).

Hope to be able to find my way around soon.

: PeterT September 29, 2007, 09:19:02 AM
KitKatKid has got a buddy and added his name to the wiki - so I will be creating his avatar as soon as I can. We do still have a problem with the avatar creation system, which goes something like this ...


So - best case scenario - we will have the contract signed on Tuesday 2nd October and will be able to start registering avatars on Schome Park again on Wednesday 3rd October ...  :-[

In the meantime - if you are new to the Schommunity I suggest you spend some time trying to get your head around the forum and wiki - they are pretty confusing because of the amount of material on them! Oh - and join in any of the discussions that you are interested in ...   :)

: Re: Welcome to SPii
: PeterT September 29, 2007, 09:34:29 AM
Ever the pessimist - what is the worst case scenario?

Worst case scenario - we have to find another way to do the registrations - if that were to happen then I would ask Linden Labs to sort out the current backlog of registrations for us.

I'm pretty sure that the contract will be OK - but I know that once you involve lawyers in negotiations things get much more complicated and take much longer ...

How much of a backlog is there? Are we talking about all the american students aswell? How many?

At the moment there are two students and one adult waiting for avatars (I think). However, there are two or three batches of students whose details we expect to get through in the next week or two - we will need to have something resolved before then ...

What does the adult specialise in? Or are they general support staff?

I would like to suggest perhaps you could help a little to avert possible confusion, Peter T... I know you have been on this site for aeons and aeons and had to put a humanoid picture up as it was in the days before you had an avatar - but it is a convincing looking picture, people might think it is you  >:D Indeed it has been copied inworld onto the boards around the running track.  So is it time you updated your profile and uploaded your avatar image so people will know what you look like? :P

Hi Crypto001 - welcome to the Schommunity. Must admit that being an old fuddy duddy I struggled to decode some of your txt spk. Folk tend not to use text speak in here - I think its to humour us old folk to be honest ...

As soon as you have a buddy and have edited the list of buddies on the buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs) to show who your buddy is then I'll set up your avatar - when I say 'as soon as' what I mean is 'when I realise!'

Hope someone volunteers to be your buddy real soon.

I'm not quite sure how you managed to slip through with a three part name!  :o

Mars I posted my name on the wiki so if you want to be my buddy go get to it. (LOL)


I edited your entry on the buddies page (so that you came at the end of the list rather than as a heading!)
I've set up your avatar - as you didn't respond to my question about what you wanted me to do about your name I have just gone for removing the space - so you need to log in to Second Life as DaRkStArSk8Ater Schomer - the case of the letters DOES matter when you log in.

Enjoy.

Skater - you need to edit the buddies page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_buddies#A_list_of_current_buddy_pairs) to show who your buddy is - once you've done that I'll create your avatar.

Thanks Peter  ;)

I just tried to create an avatar for Chippermass - the registration website is down at the moment - I'll keep trying until it comes back up and will post a message here as soon as I've succeeded.

I think Chippermass may be having problems installing the client - but have suggested that s/he posts a message in the Second Life Help discussion if these continue.

PeterT
PS Please make sure that Chppermass knows how to edit a wiki page - and knows how to find the Schome Park Events page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Events) so that s/he knows what is scheduled etc..

I will aim to be around from 8pm to 9pm tomorrow (Tuesday) so I can sign up students as they select their avatar names and/or get their buddies and edit the wiki.

Sorry for cutting you out of the second Flashmeeting - I was anxious about you getting access to info about folk's real names and email addresses (which we were talking about quite happily). So AUP strikes again.

Anyway - a goodly chunk of new folk now signed up with usernames and passwords for the forum - and looking for buddies.
Yankee will be working with this new group of students to help them get up to speed with the forum, wiki and Schome Park too.

Enjoy.

Hi Rambo - hopefully one of the old hands will be along sometime soon - I know that some of them are a bit snowed under with school work at the moment ...

If no one else is free, i could be your buddy.

Can i just say that we do need to remember that not all peps have voice chat.

i know that i still have much to learn in spii, however, if my buddy were to ask such a question that i could merely refer them to more experienced schomers.

Rambo does have an avatar already - but it would still be good if he could add your names to the buddies page. It is very important that folk can use the forum and wiki as well as SPii itself.

Allstar letting anyone use your avatar is against the AUP (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Acceptable_Use_Policy) and against Linden Labs terms of use.
Don't do it or we will have no option other than to ban you from the project.

Swearing is also against the AUP (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Acceptable_Use_Policy) - we do take the AUP (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Acceptable_Use_Policy) very seriously - so I suggest you re-read it now and then stick to it.

Hi, I'm Ophelia and I'm new to schome park.  I could use a buddy... anyone mind showing me the ropes...?.... :)....anyone?.... :-\.... Please????....  :'(...hey, I'm cool 8)...kinda  lol.  Cant wait to meet you!

Hi Ophelia - welcome to the Schome Park Project.
I'm sure someone will offer to be your buddy very shortly - I'll be watching for when this happens and will get your avatar set up asap.

We seem to have met each other already, so why not? :)



Mars can you please bear in mind my 3 buddies max suggestion. I think people think its a good idea because if you have like 5 buddies then they arent going to get as good a learning experience from you.
Its great that your taking such a personal interest in this BTW ;)

Well, I really only have three now, including Becca. (KitKatKKid and Darkstar) Pigment seems to have grasped the wiki and forum fine, and she's been in SL before. KitKatKid is getting to grips with all three aspects of Schome really well, so whilst it may seem like I have hundreds, I'm really taking more on because I thinks KitKatKid and Pigment are capable of looking after themselves now.

Whilst I can still be Pigment and KKKid's buddy, I'm really more of a familiar face to them now.

If you want some looking at mini prims or other odd techniques I could give it a go-SLs building menu, although annoying restrictive, can be fiddled with quite well. This is so long as the lesson would be earlier than about 6:30 as I have explorers after that.

On the subject of 'us' and 'not us', can I point you to the  SPii Dictionary  (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Dictionary) definition of 'one of us':

One of Us - (adjective) a description for a staff member that has been corrupted initiated into the SParker way of life. See 'Elsa SParker'

I have always found this highly amusing and have assumed that this makes me very much not 'one of you' !! I've thought about editing the entry, but then have not been sure whether or not I am awaiting some sort of 'result' from some 'initiation test'! Think I'll leave clarification of that one to one of you!  :)

No, it would be 3pm there, because last week, the UK's daylight saving had ended, but the US' hadn't, which meant that for a week, the difference between UK and Eastern American time was four hours instead of five, but since then, daylight saving has ended in the States too. :P

What powerpoint is this, can we get a link?

It's mentioned in the Virtual Worlds thread.

If you have powerpoint then follow this link (http://kn.open.ac.uk/public/document.cfm?docid=10637) then rather than clicking on the presentation's file name right click on it and save it to your hard disc - then run it from there.

Topper

I don't think he's american - he can actually get in already - but being sensible he knows that having a guide/buddy will help ...

Incidentally - someone suggested that we have buddy groups - kind of self-help groups of newbies that meet and support each other - and maybe have a link THS too.

What do folk think of that as an alternative to the old buddy system?   ???
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Topper Schomer November 09, 2007, 05:16:28 PM
I think having small groups of say 5 with one or2 THS with them for when groups come in but in beetween when only a few people are registering the old buddy system would be best

you must be either

in spii for 3 months
be active in forum and wiki
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Topper Schomer November 10, 2007, 07:00:07 PM
but that may change as when big groups come in then THS could litrally double in size. So the critera may get tighter by needeing to be in Spii say 4 mounths and be actve on the fourm and wiki.

Remember that part of the role of a buddy is ongoing support - and making sure that your buddy is involved in all aspects of the community - SL, wiki and forum. I'd say, with a few exceptions, that people who get the most out of Schome are the people who are actively involved in all three.
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: KitKatKid Schomer November 11, 2007, 05:02:03 PM
I agree with you Fox - Mars doesnt 'buddy' me as much anymore but when we're both on at the same time he always says Hi and how are you getting on. And also if I need a hand hes there to answer my problem.

On the buddy system, I feel that each member of THS should have 3 buddys max at a time but when a buddy says that they can go alone then the HS can pick up another buddy.



P.S - By my calculations I should be a member of THS just before Xmas [All going well :P]
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Jpskater777 Schomer November 11, 2007, 05:34:00 PM
i agree with fox
and also kitkatkid saying that if you have a buddy that you have no more than 3. but even so 3 is a lot, you have to make sure that everyone has been getting time with  you and has been getting enough help.
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Topper Schomer November 11, 2007, 05:49:33 PM
When a buddy says that they can go alone then the HS can pick up another buddy.

I would disagree with this and think the buddyer should have the final say when the people are OK with all 4 mediuums of schome (SL, Wiki, Fourm and SLog). cos some one could walk in get a buddy walk into schome park and say hi to the buddy and say hey dont need a buddy no more; a extreme example perhaps but it would allow someone to do that.

Topper
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: KitKatKid Schomer November 12, 2007, 03:52:03 PM
Point taken.

I think if the buddy feels they are ok the HS needs to agree that they are ok.
Me and mars never had any formal "Ok i think i can go alone" chat. We just sorta went our separate ways. But we still chat and he helps me with things I need help with.

^ That kinda sounds like a love story gone wrong. :P
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Marsbar9 Schomer November 12, 2007, 05:05:32 PM
Aww :P

Reason being I don't think anyone should say "I can go my separate way now" - there are always things to learn - even we, as THS, are still learning, because everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.


I still make sure, like Kit said, that everyone I buddy (and come to mention it, all the new comers) that everything is going ok, and no one has any problems or questions.
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Jpskater777 Schomer November 12, 2007, 07:14:33 PM
Dont forget to mention that most of the newcomers are coming from the u.s so there is a time difference of 5hrs. the HS have to be on late to be able to see their buddy. So its not that easy to keep up with the time difference because we may want to go on later than 3 or when its not too late over there.So they cant see they experience buddy.  :-\

I can do scripts; I could probably also teach you how to make some scripts...

Dont forget to mention that most of the newcomers are coming from the u.s so there is a time difference of 5hrs.
I'm fine with being on at 8pm (in fact, around 7/8pm would be the best for me because I can get other stuff out of the way first) for a couple of hours; the main problem would probably actually come from the fact that your SL club only runs for an hour, then it may take a fair while to get home and put SL on, so we might not be able to be there by then...

well thats true it is only 1 hr. but it shouldnt take that long to get back to there house if they didnt go anywhere else because where we live it is a small town, the town is only 2 miles long so every can walk home and be there in not that long of a time.

: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Topper Schomer November 15, 2007, 06:18:58 PM
it can take me around 30 an hour to walk home from school and thats about 2 miles and I dont go straght on the computer I am usall hungry by that time and maybe have a bit of homework to do so it can be 6 before I log on so all in all around 2 hours or so I think the americans wont do the same as me but it could be understandable to only logging on at 9 :-\

Hi CookieMix - I've set up your avatar on Schome Park in anticipation of someone offering to buddy up with you - it is more interesting going into Schome Park when there are other people around ...

I have set up avatars for swizz Schomer, Yue Schomer, Waffleking22 Schomer, and Rubystar Schomer.

Enjoy ...   :)

PS Life is much more fun if you get a buddy before you go into Schome Park - nothing worse than going in there and there being no-one around.
PPS Check out the Schome Events Page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Events) to find out what is happening - all events are open to everyone ... (at least until the mutinous students (http://schome.open.ac.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1690.0) get their evil way  :'( )

You may be able to sort this problem by downloading the new video card drivers - we need a techy to advise us about how you do that (it is a matter of going to the website for your video card and downloading new drivers) - I have taken the liberty of posting a query about this in the Second Life Help discussion (http://schome.open.ac.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1734.0) cos we are more likely to get a quick response on something like this from there ...

Sounds like updating the drivers may do the trick - though you might want to check out what graphics card you currently have and compare that with the info on this page (http://secondlife.com/corporate/sysreqs.php) while you are waiting for a response to the query (http://=http://schome.open.ac.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1734.0).

Hi...
     I am new to Second life. I called myself 'Steam' because i am into steam power. I hope to make some new friends.
                                See you soon,

You have just made me think about making a steam engine in Schome Park. You could make 'steam particles' appear, the pressure of which could push a piston. It would be difficult, but possible...
: Re: Welcome to SPii
: Jpskater777 Schomer November 29, 2007, 07:42:06 PM

You might be interested in Steampunk, which is big in parts of the Main (adult) Grid of Second Life.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_punk

I quote:
"The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history–style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; "

Hello all - and good to be joining you . I have spent many a happy hour(s) on the main grid constructing and more recently have started looking at scripting. Looking forward to joining in with events in Schome and as a newbie I am looking for a buddy.

So if you can show me the ropes and would like to be my buddy - please give me a shout.

Hi
I am Kreila SParker and I am looking for a buddy if someone would like to buddy me please? ::)

I am interested in what 'research skills' could look like inworld and if there are correlations between these in RL and what folks might need differently.

I am hoping to have some discussions with Roughbounds and others on such matters.

I suspect we are going to run out of buddies!
 ::)

Lots of new folk joining ...  :)

 >:D I am being a bit wicked and setting up people's avatars even if they haven't got a buddy - though clearly if you can find one that will make things easier for you.

We will be running lots of activities/events over the next weeks - all events are open to everyone - check out the Schome Park Events page (http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/Schome_Park_Events) for info about what is happening when - and if you have an idea for an event then feel free to organise it (or if you want help with sorting it out then ask in the Events discussion board (http://schome.open.ac.uk/forum/index.php?board=3.0)

Enjoy

Several options:

I am setting up folks avatars slightly after their forum and wiki registrations are activated - giving them time to explore the forum/wiki and post a message or two (cos it is vital that folk use the forum and wiki if they are going to get the most out of being part of the project).
