Committed

You can read that title in at least 2 ways. Either is valid.
(1) I made a commitment to SL last night. I finally signed up for a premium membership.
OR
(2) I should be committed to the nearest mental health facility because I signed up for a premium SL membership.

After over 24 hours of not rezzing and my inventory not loading I was prepared to contact technical support. I am too impatient to simply file a ticket. I prefer to talk with a person. The only way to do that was to upgrade my membership. So I did. I figured for $6/month I could spring for a premium membership.

Of course, as you might expect by now, I chose the wrong group when given the choice of which support group to contact. πŸ™‚ I should know by now that if I think “a” is the correct answer, I should pick “b”. I had to take an online security test for work yesterday. The test had maybe 5 sections with a little quiz (5 or 6 questions) at the end. I got a question wrong on every single section. Always a true/false. I tend to read too much into these questions. LOL. What can I say? I like words. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I got transferred to the correct support group. The person there attempted to fix my inventory. It looked okay at first glance but when I typed “worn” at top, it never came back to show me what I was wearing. It stayed at “searching…”. And I never rezzed. He said file a ticket and I did.

So now I wait, floating, a white cloud, waiting for resolution.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. That would’ve bugged me, to be honest.. wanting to get an issue resolved and paying for it to get it done quickly, and then finding that you have to file a ticket anyways. There’s something wrong with the support system, there.

    I love your blog by the way – keep writing =)

  2. Thanks Prad! I am still totally frustrated. It’s now over 48 hours that I am a cloud. No word from support. I plan to become a squeaky wheel today. πŸ™‚

  3. Hmmm… I see some irony in your comment: “I am too impatient to simply file a ticket. I prefer to talk with a person.” in regards to 2nd life. lol!
