SLCC 2007 Hotel Nearly Booked!

Posted on June 22, 2007. Filed under: Chicago, convention, DJing, Education, First Life, Friends, metaverse, Music, RadioRadio, Real Life, Second Life, SLCC, VR worlds, Webcasting |

Folks the rooms set aside for a discounted rate at the Chicago Hilton and Towers are nearly gone, so please book your room now if you’ve not done so yet! When these are exhausted, we’ll look at adding more rooms of course, but why wait? Click here for the Official SLCC Blog, the bright, blue buttons on the right will take you to Hotel & to Convention reservations pages.

In related news, I’ve been privy to an advanced peek at the scheduled speakers for some of the different presentation tracks, and let me just say this, I knew beforehand that I’d want to be in more than one place at one time, but now I’m SURE of it! These 3 days are going to be chock-full of interesting, fun, engaging content, presentations, machinima filmwork, music in varied forms such that we’ll ALL want a clone or three so we don’t miss a moment! Zounds! what a concentration of all the wonderfullness that SL has to offer this will be, gosh-a-golly!

All I can think of is the closing lines of “Meet Me In St. Louis”, all this excitement will be “right here in [my] home town”, and how happy I am to share my town with all of you folks that are coming to the convention! Can’t wait!

IF Dr. Suess were to explain computers …

Posted on May 7, 2007. Filed under: clever, computers, Cute, Education, Humor, jargon, Jokes, language, Learning, parody, silly, slang, Technology, Writers |

it might go something like this: If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort…
Then-the-socket-packet-pocket-has-an-error- to-report!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
and the double clicking icon puts your window in the trash
and your data is corrupted ‘cause the index doesn’t hash,
then your situation’s hopeless and your system’s gonna crash!!!

If the label on the cable on the table at your house
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,

When the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy on the disk
and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
then you’ll have to flash your memory and you’ll want to RAM your ROM
Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!

(sent to me via email, it seems to be an anon. author, and NOT actual Suessian text)

Satan’s Sex Ed … I’m not kidding

Posted on March 8, 2007. Filed under: Education, Humor, Linkage & W(a/o)nderings, sex, utube |

This video is HYSTERICAL and PG, so they say, but zOMG it is funny, stuff like “the lies Satan will tell your children” for example is the start of a rockin’ good time in my book.
