Festive Pudding-Hunting Pursuits - a Preliminary

My punctuality remains as dismal as it has always been, but I am determined to release this particular Christmas-Related Product before Christmas.

Some readers may be aware of my "Steel Pigeon Projector", which has been sitting outside my shop practically forever.

Snowball Turretting Commercial Notice

Further snow-related news: I have put out for Open Sale an Automatic Device which fires Snowballs at whomever might be within its range.

The Turret is copiable (so many may be placed) and controllable by the owner either individually by touch, or en masse via a controlling device

News of Updated Snowballery

updated_snowballery

I have noticed that some seem to be finding the Snowball System that I devised some two years ago now - goodness me! - diverting and entertaining, still; or, at the least, they are using it occasionally.

A Contest, and a little News

I have been terribly remiss not to mention the following Contest regarding "steampunk" appearance, of which I am pleased to be a judge: http://www.koinup.com/contest/secondlifesteampunk/

Said Contest is being run by the Aethernet Pictorial Establishment "Koinup", and involves Photography of one's own personal appearance in the "steampunk" style.

The Ordinal Wilks&Co Vertical Clock-Loading Pistol

An actual product release for a change; yes, it is another pistol which may break down at a moment's notice. Please see the following:

clock-loader-10

The Full Set Of Photographs

For the next few hours, available for half price from my Caledon shop! (That is, L$200.) (Not any longer.)

If you wish for more detailed Historical Information, please do read the following....

An Awkward Occurrence enables Pontification

I must say that we have not had a Good, Old-Fashioned, Update-Related Scripting Function Break for some considerable length of time, and it is good to see that Tradition is re-establishing itself with the most recent "Rolling Restart".

Semaphore Unbound

Well, I did say that I would release the thing, and so I have. In practice I decided to charge the princely sum of L$0 for it, including two sets of appropriate official flags; anyone wishing to leave a donation to offset my Uploading Charges is more than welcome, but I dare say they will not bankrupt me.

The Semaphore Animation Device is available from my Caledon shop of course, and also from ShopOnRez. (I am afraid that I do not have the patience these days to list items on SLExchange, certainly not ones from which I gain no monetary reward.)

A lengthy page of instructions is available for the benefit of insomniacs, and for those who are still not asleep, the main script itself is also viewable.

The item itself is not transferrable. Whilst regular readers will be aware that I am not the most assiduous in pursuing Resellers of my Free Items, counting it as one of the consequences of releasing items that are both Copiable and Transferrable, that is not to say that I like it when some reprobate grabs things which I set out and re-packages them as part of some godawful "Business In A Box". In actual fact I do not object too much if a New Resident decides to scour the Grid for free items for which he or she may con some Even Newer Resident out of a few coppers - at least some effort goes into that practice, and it may be said that they perform a service - but the industrial reselling of Free Items is something which annoys me somewhat.

Furthermore, this morning, when I approached someone in their appallingly-textured shop and politely requested that they cease selling my Grid Crash Protection Box for monetary gain (I have no illusions that such action is technically punishable by what Laws of the Land exist, very little is, but as a Free Citizen I am quite at liberty to make that sort of request with ethical justification, particularly as there are clear notices indicating that these things are Not For Resale) I was treated to a dull little lecture about how "we don't own anything therefore I can sell anything" and how I should read the Terms Of Service, as if I had not read them enough times to be able to repeat them verbatim.

This annoyed me, even though said seller did in the end remove my products - apparently customers had been complaining that the Grid Crash Protection Box did not actually protect them! perish the thought - and thus I am disinclined at this time to offer copiable and transferrable items, even though many fine folk would find this convenient.

I do apologise for this tangent.

Yes, yes, the Ordinal Cutting Torch

I have spent quite a lot of time tinkering with this thing and thus, you should buy it immediately.

<

blockquote>There can be few Engineers, Blacksmiths, Salvage Experts, Artists, Pirates, Safe-Crackers and so on who have not, at one time or another, wished that they had a portable yet effective solution to the problem of being required to cut through a Large Metal Plate Of Some Sort.

Sculpted Industrialism

In recent days I have been observing many fellow artisans upon the Grid - well, I flatter myself that they are my fellows, I am a child playing with plywood and glue compared to most, but nonetheless - writing and speaking on the subject of Sculpted Prims, the new magical lumps of clay sent to us from the heavens that promise to make our fruitbowls that much more interesting.
