This Aethernet Journal is a record of the experiences of Ordinal Malaprop in the realm of Second Life as a technologist, natural philosopher, mathematrix and occasional purchaser of shoes.
Ms Malaprop is a resident of the isle of Caledon, where she maintains the original Caledon Lighthouse, though it must be said that other people have now built lighthouses considerably better than hers. Still. Let us not be downhearted.
Ordinal is generally found to be delving into the somewhat esoteric workings of the Second Life universe, at least in terms of scripting objects to make odd noises or explode.
As a reader of this humble journal you will sometimes see reference made to free devices and possibly "the freebie box". Unless otherwise specified, if Ordinal has finished with a project she will place it into this device (to be found at Ordinal Enterprises at the Lighthouse in Caledon) from where it may be taken and examined by any interested party. Since the issue of most concern to Ordinal is scripting and the examination thereof, these items will be modifiable and, usually, distributed with full permissions, so that one may open them up and see how they work.
If perhaps you have stumbled upon this journal by some accident, and have no knowledge of Second Life, do feel free to join, as it is, indeed, free to enter the world, and as of the time of writing does not require even a credit card number or any such thing. (Though one might find it advisable to spend a small sum in order to obtain a little currency within the world.) You might also find it useful to examine some of the links on the side of the main page, to obtain broader knowledge.
It should of course be noted, particularly by any ladies or gentlemen of the legal profession, that Second Life is a trademark of Linden Labs and not anything to do with the author, and all opinions expressed herein are those of the author and not zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
In case there was any interest in the matter, Ordinal's skin and hair are by the highly talented Robin Sojourner, and her clothes are mostly from the silentsparrow emporium.
