365 days of SL, day 61:

(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 2261 KiB)

I wasn't sure what to take a screenshot off for the longest time, given that I only was on SL briefly; I spent my time reducing the clutter in my inventory by a tiny amount, and originally wanted to post a shot based on that, but I then ended up talking to a few friends instead. (All in my stateroom, BTW.)

The above screenshot shows a typing animation, something that I imagine everyone who's ever played SL is familiar with. :) The standard one merely shows you hacking away on an invisible keyboard; most (?) furry avatars also include talking muzzles, at least these days, with moving lower jaws that make it seem as if you're speaking.

But there's also tons of other kinds you can buy (or get for free). (I think the weirdest one I ever saw was a barf typer that caused you to projectile-vomit when you were typing. It cost 1 L$, and no, I didn't buy it.)

This one here shows a laptop that appears out of thin air when you start typing, and vanishes again when you stop. Oh, and the bullet holes? They're based on this story (from the "you-couldn't-make-it-up" department).

Hm! There's a thought - I haven't done anything to my type anim, and the stock one is a bit boring the millionth time. =:) My ideal is probably a bit sparklier than yours, I suspect. *grin*

Maybe these entries otter be public? Seems like such a neat collection of SL traveloguery.

*s* Could be — although I'm not sure what my ideal even is.

And yeah, I've thought about that. Should they be? I'm a bit more hesitant to share details of my personal life these days, but yeah, maybe. It's something to think about, and discuss with the usual suspects, especially those appearing in the screenshots. :)
