The Latest

Hi all - 

After several phone calls to the lovely folks at Second Life customer service it seems that I can in fact get my old account reopened but it would involve doing things I'm not willing to do at the moment. The short of it is it's just too much trouble to reopen that account. 

That said I will be in-world from as Aether Redux. Yes I'm starting completely over as of yesterday. Please feel free to come by Caledon Oxbridge and poke me with a stick and giggle at my duck walk. Starting over means I'll be abandoning my old inventory including several rather expensive aircraft. I'm still on the computer from 2008 and on a wifi connection. From what I gather flight in SL in nearly impossible without the latest bells and whistles. 

I've also started a new blog taking two things I'm a huge geek for. Steampunk and movies. Being the genius that I am I came up with the following name for this little venture. Get ready for it....

Thank you, thank you! (Takes a bow)  Just a few posts up now but something to keep me busy and with luck others informed. Take a look if so inclined. 

Hope to see all my old friends soon. Working weird hours now but I'll be about when I can. Take care and carry on.

New Look For The Blog And Myself.

Greetings one and all.

After being away from Second Life for more than a year I've decided to return and join in on the Steampunk fun once again. I seem to be having some account issues at the moment so I'll be in-world with one of my little helper avatars Zen Giranamo, going under the name of Aether Redux. If you should see me out and about please stop and say hello. With luck I'll be back in my old form within a week or so.

I've also taken a few moments and spruced up the blog a bit. New background and got rid of those pesky broken links. Let me know what you think of the new look in the comments.

I very much look forward to seeing all my old friends once again.

Best regards - Aether

A disturbing Find

As a Timeforce 10 agent I have the ability to slip from one reality to another. On a recent jaunt into the near future I was doing a bit of research and I came across the following card catalog entry.
As you can plainly see its a entry for my journal published in 1880 by Oxbridge University Press. Of special interest to me are the notations someone has made...

"Inglewood's airship went missing in 1893" "her ship was never found" "why is her journal here?"

Missing? Ship never found? And why would my journal be in a library and not with my "missing" ship? The notes indicate someone took a fair bit of interest in this entry. Who are they? Are they looking for me?

As I said, disturbing indeed!

Happy St. Pats!

Top o' the morning to you! Being of the Irish persuasion I couldn't let Saint Patrick's go by unnoticed. And what better way to celebrate the Irish holiday than with a bit of music. Enjoy.

Okay, this next one isn't exactly traditional Irish music but it does feature The Chieftains and where do you think Bluegrass came from? I dare you to be in a bad mood after listening and watching. Hey if nothing else we Irish are a fun lot.

And you didn't think you were getting out of here without a bit of The Dropkick Murphys. I thought The Fighting 69 th seem to fit.

Connolly Aerodrome and the Current Financial Crisis - Royal Caledon Air Force

A link and a few questions?

First the link to Zoe Connolly's Post about how real life can affect our virtual world.

And a few comments and a question or two.

Do you have any special thoughts of Connolly Aerodrome?
As for myself Connolly Aerodrome is one of my favorite places in Caledon. In all of Second Life actually. It was one of the first places I visited when I came to Caledon and I made the observation deck my makeshift home for many months.

More importantly it was a place where I found a sense of community and lets face it that's what we are all looking for here. Zoe did this by building a place where like minded people could feel at home and connect.

This past summer and fall I would pop into SL each weekday for my "nooner" and head straight to Connolly. On most days there was usually at least 3 or four regulars there and we would spend a few hours pirate hunting (things in Caledon were not always this calm) watching our little Sumie build something, target practicing or just sitting about acting silly. My point I suppose is that it was something I very much looked forward to each day, and having a home base was very reassuring.

My other memory that stands out was the memorial service we had at Connolly when Sumie Kawashima passed away in RL. Again the sense of connection was and I know this word gets tossed about a lot but amazing. It helped me get through what was a pretty rough time.


How many pairs of steampunk goggles do you need?

Who or what are you willing to sacrifice for?

What do you belive in, whats importat to you?

These are just questions, and I'm not suggesting anything but would love to know what you think. Leave a comment. No, really its free and I promise not to send you a fruitcake at Christmas.

One last question? What exactly is the definition of a rant? Just wondering.
