Lanai's Diary: Spring Has Arrived and Already Butterflies Tried to Take me Out FFS! ~Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

Please use caution when doing your Spring decorating this season or something like this can happen to you too...
On Sunday while sprucing up the media center for Spring I decided to dig thru my inventory for some butterflies to add to the place.
Locating a mystery box simply named “BUTTERFLYS” I snatched it from inventory and drop it to the ground. All of a sudden a swarm of butterflies were forming a giant particle halo around the center...
Some butterflies had peace signs in there wings and others in a joyous colorful displays big and small.
Immediately I was overwhelmed and could no longer stand to see this or risk going into a virtual panic attack or worse some sort of graphics seizure the XBOX warns gamers about.

In the Spotlight: Model/Host-Manager Jovial Jewell talks about her modeling work and being a Host-Manager at Bella Vida Velvet Jazz Lounge

Today’s SL Enquirer Spotlight falls on nearly-three year old avatar Jovial Jewell, who spoke this afternoon/evening with SLE staff reporter Ramon Federal about her two SL careers, one as a high-fashion model and one as Host-Manager of Bella Vida Velvet Jazz Lounge.

Jovial, who sat for her interview in a flowing white dress, was trained by Ewing Modeling School, where she “learned…about styling my outfits and how to walk the runway,” and has also been an instructor there. “I have been in many shows for designers like Chez Gabrielle and Fierce Designs. Also Hotlala Designs.” 

Being a model in Second Life is very satisfying for Jovial. Asked what she likes best about the work, she said, “I love the fashion industry, love the fashion industry. I've always wanted to be a model in RL, so this lets me live that out a bit.” She also mentioned that she usually gets to keep the clothes she models, no small perk when working for the designers she has.

"The Gran Way"
Recently I was approached by an avatar named Dave Gran who claims he has worked closely with the Lindens and many of SL's top designers & Businesses across the grid since 2003. Not knowing much about such an accomplished avie my question was as good as anybody's so we decided to meet up later on that evening where I blindly went into the interview with a blank notepad and a puzzled look. so... Who is Dave Gran?

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: PrimSavers - Lacy Muircastle Reporting ...

PrimSavers – You only live Twice!

Primsavers has an extensive range of furniture and other home decor ideas, all of which are designed specifically with prim count in mind. PrimSavers strives for exquisite quality and extremely low prim count.
Floyd Mistwalker of PrimSavers is a master magician when it comes to manipulating the use of prims. In fact he has it down to a fine art!

Alright, let's understand what we have here.

What we have is Floyd Mistwalker having tortured the prim to within an inch of its existence and magically conjured up entire sets of furniture using the absolutely bare minimum in prims and in many cases no more than just 1 prim!

He only ever uses the best poses (no static freebie poses for him) in all his furniture. You are always offered multiple texture options in order to fit in with any decor scheme.

News in a Nutshell- Lanai Jarrico Reporting... (OLD ARCHIVES)

Staff Reporter
• Wednesday, March 03, 2010
From Tigers Public apology, natural disaster and the Winter Olympics games Our real world news outlets are all tied up in sports, entertainment and world drama at the moment.

It's an interesting place to be caught in between keeping up to date with local news and the news generated by avatars in a virtual world but decided since I get news leads popping up all the time from residents of Second Life about this and that I figured I'd sum it all up into a news Nutshell....

SLE Police Reports- 3/1/2010 LIKE OMG HACKER WARNING BEWARE!!!!??!!! ~Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

3/2/2010- HACKER UPDATE- jsgior32 Toxx (rezzdate 3/1/2010) who was previously mentioned as "jsgior32" now has a last name and upon reviewing the accused's profile. It read's "Yeah, I'm the one they told you about. ;)"
Lock your doors and windows folks...
Monday, March 1, 2010- According to an urgent hacker alert which began cirrculating on Monday morning amongst avies wanting to protect their fellow peeps from menaces to second life society has sadly been haulted in its tracks. I'm left bewildered and wondering what the heck is going on and why the heck am I dressed like Sherlock Holmes
I came across The actual alert which claims,
" Don't add anyone named jsgior32. She is a hacker. Tell everyone on your buddy list because if someone on your buddy list adds her, she'll be on your list too. She'll figure out your computer ID and address. So copy and paste this message to everyone on your buddy list because if she hacks them you're next. I sent this to everyone on my list; so please send this to everyone on your list.."
Upon following some leads and asking if they knew any of the actual victims of this supposed hacking, One gave me a couple leads,another never returned my call, and the other told me they didnt speak english... So I feel getting to the bottom of this would be like swimming in a pool of honey.
Still needing to know who this clown was running umuck and threatening the good people of Second Life I took it upon myself to whip up the trusty Sl Search Engine in one last ditch effort and looked up "jsgior32" myself.
Either the LL Secret Service caught wind of this Sl Problem and handled it, the accused's name is mispelled and incomplete or this Hacker never existed in the first place.
Confused and Unsure who the real source is of this Hacker alert chain letter of sorts, it makes me wonder just how effective these notices are when not enough information is given.
On behalf of Al those for Grief Control. Be safe out there Second Lifers.... but keep those eyes peeled for Griefers they can strike at any time. knowing how to defend yourself is half the battle....
