This review is short but delicatly written. Nice. However (i'm sure that this was not the fault of Mr. Chip Poutine) the name of the chief architect and man responsible for the design/construction (nearly ALL of the construction almost completely SINGLE-HANDEDLY) was left out of the review entirely.
I would politely ask that in future discussions of their projects, Mr. Oddfellow and Mr. Rambler please give well deserved props to Shukran Fahid.

That is all.

The proof is in the build, right click on any prim, who's name is on it? Turn on hover tips, who's name do you see? Chip dropped the ball as a blogger by letting this slip past. And Bo and Ham should have been up front with the info. For a review to come out like this it seems they tried to slip this one past him.

I'm hoping it was a Chip Slip. If Bo and Ham don't give credit.... well they just better be finished at dublin, the builder community in SL might not like the fact that any of their work would end up non credited. If this is the case Bo and Ham better start working on their building skills.

Chip Poutine

Boliver and Ham did credit Shukran as the main builder and mentioned that they flew him to Dublin to gather reference material for the sim. It was an oversight on my part not to include Shukran in the post, and will be corrected by means of an update. Thanks very much for the visiting the site and the feedback :)


Jak Yellowknife

Good to hear Chip. Good man! wtg Ham-Bo!


Who flew who where? Please enlighten me?

Chip Poutine

Booperkit, here is the quote from the transcript of our tour:

"Boliver Oddfellow:...we actually flew Shukran the builder to Dublin"



booperkit flew me to dublin. because she loves me and loves my dreams.

shukran fahid

I REPEAT. MY GIRLFRIEND BOUGHT ME A TICKET TO GO DOCUMENT DUBLIN. there now i think most of the credit due has been handed out. other important names include:

sitearm madonna
kal hocken
and all the folks on hams staff.
goodness credit can be a pain in the A**

Ham Rambler

Shukran, I agree that giving credit can be a pain, but it still must be given.
I was the one who suggested that you make the trip to meet me in Dublin, and I am so glad you did. Giving you your first pint of Real Guinness in Gogarty's Bar (on which the SL Blarney Stone is based) provided the perfect setting for you to see and experience the Dublin I wanted captured in the SL build. I hope you and Booperkit enjoyed the experience and that it may be repeated soon if we look at expanding the sim.

Boliver Oddfellow

I must agree with Ham and I am glad thatChips made the correction to the article. Ham and I both worked very hard to repeatedy make sure Chip was aware of who the builder was.

For those of you who dont know or havent seen, go visit Dublin sim. It is the realization of one mans dreams, created and built by my now buisness partner,and arguably the best archetect in SL Mr Shukran Fahid.

I am for one am proud as hell to have had a part in managing Shuk's build process not ony did we bring to life an amazing build we also gave birth to a IVM.


A lovely build, especially with all the photo-realistic textures. Excellent work all around.
