Today the lovely Sandie Bing let the kitties know that Tortec & Mixed Nuts had been rebuilt and remodeled. It's quite a nice build and lag free!
If you haven't checked out this store before, now's the time to do it. Two Midnight Mania's one located in each store. They have some clever, useful and fun items there too, including a special gift just for Lucky Kitties.
Here's the slurl

Firstly need to have your advanced menu available at the top of your screen if you do not, then do the following:
Hold down your control, ALT, Shift and D key now Advanced will appear on your top toolbar.
Go to Advanced, then in the list that apears choose Rendering , then from that list choose Info Displays , then choose
Avatar Rendering Cost.
This number is how hard the server has to work to render your avatar. The higher the number the harder it has to work.
Higher numbers can cause teleport problems, loading problems etc.
To reduce it, remove prims. To turn off ARC just uncheck it.
Hope this helps *hugs* Cat

It's been a little while since I've been to Primalot, but thanks to Lucky Kitty Nat Donat's recommendation I popped in and snagged a rather nice Kimilu Pussycat avatar (SLurl). That's right, it's a complete avie ... skin, eyes, shape, hair, teeth, clothes, and critter bits ... for free! Some past freebies and dollarbies are on the shelf and two Lucky Chairs are near by. Be sure to check out the rest of the shop, too. Very attractive with some nice goodies.

What? It's Fashion Week 2009 and no one told me? OMFrickin'Goodness! Okies, I'm probably the last person who should know. But I read about it at the Alphaville Herald with appropriate ooohs and aaahs over the pretty pictures (Web). You can head over to the event with this SLurl. Pic from Socialite Life (Web).

New Freebies at XD Fusion! (SLurl) The ever-generous Todd Borst just released a Shop Owner's Answering Machine, a device that lets your customers leave a message for you and dispenses gifts. Todd has used this in his shop for some time now to find out how folks learned about his products. Also new to the wall are Dynamic Floor Lights. They glow to lfe when an avatar steps on them. Try them out in the shop. Like the Answering Machine, this goodie is full perms. Past freebs are still available and the shop has some wonderful things inside.

A previous post exposed a Secret Lucky Chair List (Web) but our on-going investigation shows that the conspiracy now involves Secret Codes. At the bottom of the Lucky Loot List (Web) is an ingenious computer interface used by Those In The Know to lock away freebies in a hidden server, keeping them from the general public. This reporter has learned, however, that for the time being the system is pretty easily hacked (see pic at left). When you breach security you'll see a Secret Code that you can use to unlock the server.
Once at the Super Secret server facilities (SLurl), interface with the control panel and input your Secret Code using a special encrypted communications channel. The server then coughs up (eewww!) a special set of "delicates" tailor-made just for you.

I promised ya'll I would post the Midnight Mania list. Keep in mind this is updated as I stumble across them, someone else does and advises me or a kitty posts in the group and I'm on. This was updated today, some vendors may have moved but I've tried to get you as close to the MM as possible. These shops all have fantastic items so take a look around while you are out clicking on the MM's. Lastly if you come across an MM not on the list, please send me a notecard and I'll get it added. Enjoy ! *hugs* Cat

Lucky Kitty Devlin Kiranov sent a note card with a great tip for improving SL performance when rendering sculpies! Thanks, Devlin!
Sculpted prims are now a huge part of Second Life's Abilities to Create! If your not using them because of the lag you think it creates or the Blobbyness some sculpted prims seem to be at distances, then this tip is the Amazing Fix to that!
There is an Amazing Fix for this, that will not only help your Sculpted Prim Viewing Pleasure and not use up all your resources.
Debugging your LOD settings is something that can and will make all your sculpts hold the intended detail better.
Follow these easy steps:
1. Show the "Advanced" menu with Ctrl-Alt-D, or Opt-Ctrl-D on a Mac.
2. Select "debug settings" near the bottom.
3. In the blank space, copy and paste the word:
4. In the box below, set the number. The recommended setting is as high as 4 to have all your sculpts looking as the creator intended.
Unlike increasing your draw distance, this will NOT create lag for yourself or those around you! And it will improve the look of all sculpts.
Enjoy and pass this around, so everyone can enjoy the creativity as it should be.

I heard someone say... Midnight Mania's are like having Christmas every day, you log on and have MM presents to open! So without further ado I'm posting my very first Midnight Mania spotlight.
This lovely gem was snapped at Thalia's Fashion Collection . Not only does she have two Midnight Mania's but also two mob-vends with some fantastic items which drop down to 1L now that's what I call a real deal.
Here's the SLURL http://slurl.com/secondlife/Namgyal/248/196/337 for all you Midnight Mania hunters. My next post will be a complete list of the Midnight Mania's I've compiled (with all you lovely kitties help)

Maybe I've been too busy making prize hunts to notice how many Grid-Wide Hunts there are going on right now, but I wandered into Worldwide Industries and found a 14 Hearts Tour
(SLurl). Apparently this store is stop #9 and by clicking on the heart I got a prize and an LM to stop #10, INDI Designs (SLurl). S'pose I could be wrong, but I'm guessing that the prizes are clothes in both spots. No idea what is at the other locations nor where they are. It doesn't appear that the gift givers are set to Show In Search. And I don't know if this was mentioned in LKC past notices, either. With Google, though, I found it listed in SL's Community Events (Web) ... details and a start point, it seems.

Hidden deep in the bowels (ewwww!) of the Interwebs is a secret list of Lucky Chairs (and other Shep Korvin products), the prizes, and SLurl teleport links to each for the elite freebie seekers in Second Life©®℠™. Clearly, the Powers That Be don't want us mere mortals (and nekos, furries, immortals, demons, elves, thingoids, etc.) to know about it. Click the picture to see it live, but first keep in mind that not all chairs in-world are connected to the list at this time. Documents I've found show that the systematic takeover of chairs is on a voluntary basis for now, but who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men (Shep, to be specific!)? Another secret site (Web) lists info on how those in the know can join the initial stages of this "revolution." Best study the information well and be aware of the Inventory clogging effect use of this evil scheme may have. I can see how it could break the asset servers and leave us all nekkid, forced to buy new clothes.

The Isle of Lesbos 2009 Valentine's Hunt starts February 7th and ends early on the 15th. A quick hunt but well worth it.
Each region has seven hidden hearts. When you find one, click it and say I Love You (just like that .... no punctuation, each word capitalized) to get your prize. The Oasis of Lesbos has some extra hearts hidden by the merchants inside their stores so there is more than seven to find (how many? hmmmm. I don't know. Still waiting to hear from the merchants, but at least two.)
Oh ... sometimes the hearts move. Must be gravity or something. If any male wants the prizes from the Women Only region, contact me! Please respect our preferences and you might even get some erotic art for men!
♥ The Bay of Lesbos (SLurl) Bikinis & water toys.
♥ The Isle of Lesbos (Women Only here; SLurl) Special shirts & party gear!
♥ The Isle of Lesbos Mall (SLurl) Jewelry & a custom structure!
♥ The Oasis of Lesbos (SLurl) Bikinis, jewelry, & more!
In the Oasis, look for the extra hearts in these stores:
♥ Ayiki (Skins & Shapes; SLurl)
♥ Los Texanos (SLurl)
♥ Raindance (SLurl)
Does your store or mall have a prize hunt? Drop a note card with details in-world (or reply to this post) and you can get some free publicity.

Sure, the working conditions are pretty good (I mean, how many people can float around in a warm ocean while working?), but trying to keep up with Group paperwork isn't always fun. Between working membership rolls for several groups, notices posted from those groups and more, and the unending IMs on all manner of topics from more people than I personally know, my Instant Messages often cap a couple times a day. When I can I just leave my avie logged in to catch all the messages. I'm sure many of you are in a similar boat. Imagine poor Serenkitty's inboxes!
Please! When contacting me or other LKC officers, please send note cards. I leave my LL-created Note Card folder empty (having moved all the cards I keep to another folder) just so I can see new ones. I'm sure I'll still find the need to float around while digging through logs and e-mail boxes to find missed messages, but hopefully I can cut back on this use of my time.
Thanks for your help! Now if I can get a ban on "blind" offers to rent in other people's malls ...
(Like the 'kini? It's from Nanogunk (SLurl) and was free at one time. The shop has some other nice freebies, too.)
