>Actually, I have gone beyond fury into that cold, evil place where I just want to hurt people. Not everyone, just Lindens.
I know this may shock those of you who have known me for a while, either inworld or through these pages, and the reason I have flipped will seem somewhat pathetic.
However, the straw that broke the camels back, is just that, a straw. It is, by definition useless to say….”Ha! call yourself a camel and you can’t even carry that straw?!” The Last Straw is just that…..
My tale of unbounded fury begins with that increasingly annoying blog, NWN, where I read, Playing with Kirstens Second Life Shadows, and I downloaded the S20 viewer…..only to find…eeek…. that it is the Dreaded Viewer 2.0 (in disguise) that pile of crap produced by 5000 blind monkeys typing random code until by pure chance The Crappiest Viewer on Earth had been created.
I dumped it immediately…
…too late… “Viewer 2 will not replace viewer 1.23 software on you computer“…..simply fuck with it a bit.
Now, anyone above the age of say….3 years old… knows that survival on earth is dependent on NOT MESSING WITH MUMMY’S WARDROBE!!!…..or rearranging Daddy’s tool shed either…..
Anyone who has ever lived with girlfriends/wives/sisters, knows that this is a cardinal Law of Nature….blood could flow (yours) ….the same applies to boyfriends/husbands/daddy’s tools.
Except for the retarded fools that designed Viewer 2.0
I have now, whatever viewer I use, 3 useless folders. These are folders that cannot be rearranged, deleted or renamed….
“Favorites“..now…omg…this is sooo pathetic… who has a file called Favorites?… favourite WHAT for god’s sake…’Miscellaneous’ I could understand… but this is just stupidity….
…nothing however compared to….. “My Outfits“… well, IDIOT they are bound to be mine the ‘My’ is totally ridiculous, who’s outfits can I hold in my invent? The Pope’s?? Obama’s?? Get a grip….
…and…the one called “Current Outfit“…for those fools who can’t type “worn” into their search…
Now, for 3 years I have filed objects under Object and clothes under Clothing etc etc.. and that has worked out OK. Now, however, because of the alphabetical nature of these new folders I have my clothes strewn out over my Inventory… My Outfits (the name reminds me of my Most Hated File ever seen…”My Buddies”..) is now located between Lost and Found and Notecards… go figure….
OK, I thought to myself….you can do this, you can live with the idiocy of others, you have done so all your life…Governments impose stupidity daily on us plebs, after all.
That went OK, until I realised that there had been meetings in the Lab, people had sat around expensive tables discussing this nonsense, people had made ‘informed’ decisions and taken ‘a view’ that….for example… instead of giving us scalable prims…we could have “My Outfits”.
The fury struck for real then, when I realised I am paying their wages… that is something I can’t forgive myself for…
.. so…the only sensible course of action is to withdraw my financial support, and, although my tier is only $1057.56 per annum, I must be able to find a better home for those dollars.
I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more….. fuck ’em.
