Recently we've had a couple of members inquire as to Elf Clan's policy on advertising. I've therefore expanded the Charter info pages a bit to be more informative. Here are current Charter guidelines on such:Continue

I've wanted to write this article for some time but have been gathering additional information. The final piece fell into place when I read a couple of releases on the same subject:
In this article it reveals new information:

I've taken on a new hobby lately: box guitars (also known as "cigar box guitars").
Rather than a guitar though, my first project started with an amplifier. After all, how can you test the electronics on a guitar if you don't have an amp available?
Following are photos of my first completed box-amp, with information underneath. Hope you enjoy the tour. : )
It's been my habit to annually review Virtual Reality as a whole at the end of the year. I usually do that sometime in December, but I'm feeling like writing tonight and I'm only a month early. If something earth-shaking happens in the next 30 days I can always write an update blog.
So here it is Sunday, Nov 24 2013. What is the state of Virtual Reality overall?
Sadly, not much different than it was a year ago. Or two years ago. Things have changed... but…Continue

Anyone who has ever owned and ridden a 10-speed bike knows that backpedaling the bike does nothing. Your legs move and appear to be back-pedaling, but the only thing that actually backpedals are the pedals. The bike itself keeps moving forward in the same direction. It doesn't stop, doesn't slow down, doesn't…Continue

Years ago... and a few times sense then... I have made a suggestion to Linden Lab regarding permissions on textures and sculpt maps. They never implemented that suggestion-- which caused significant problems not only for them but their customers as well... and even more trouble later on.
When a texture merchant sells a texture or sculpty it has to be full-perm to be used in a build. This means the item isn't protected and regardless of…Continue

WHAT IS A LEADER?
A true leader not only guides (hopefully in a good direction), but encourages people to follow and participate. A leader is active, visible, personable, friendly. The best leaders make people feel as if they are friends. Their associates know they can approach at any time with conversation, needs, wants.
We know that "too many cooks spoil the broth", so not everyone can lead-- nor does everyone want to. We also know "in a number…Continue

SNOOTS PLAYS SNOOTS
Monday, April 22 at 12 noon at the Gypsy Camp, Snoots Dwagon will be playing Snoots (all original songs). This may be a live performance or he may be "DJing" his original CD versions so you can hear how they sounded on original release. Either way, will be fun.

In a recent blog discussion with another Elf Clan Member we mentioned a valid question:
"What constitutes a grid?"
The term "grid" is used every day in the virtual reality worlds. Grid counts are quoted in statistical charts and grid owners are considered people who manage entire virtual worlds. But is that truly the case? For definitive purposes, I believe there is a conceptual difference between a virtual world installation and a…Continue
In a recent discussion on another blogsite, a user made the following comment:
"Closed commercial grids, imo, will only offer a place to sell and the rest of the metaverse will be for exploring vw as it should be, with freedom from exorbitant costs, low prim allowances, saving one's efforts in the form of OARs and IARs and meeting some really wonderful like-minded people."
I thought I'd discuss these concepts a bit and the reality of Virtual…Continue
