Are these Blue World Notes going to be posted here on regular basis now? (need to know if I need to trim my RSS reader list)

Hamlet, since you've recently been getting a lot of flak about your blue mars postings, I just wanted to openly say thank you.

I've been playing Second Life off and on since late 2003 and I'm always looking for new things to spend my extra time with - Blue Mars now being one of those "things". The last time I started using Blue Mars was about a year ago, and I hated it - it didn't have any of the functionality that I wanted out of the virtual world.

However, It's because of your blog that I've recently revisited the virtual world, and WOW has it changed. It still isn't great, but it truly is on the right track. Heck, I might start developing content myself over there; at least until mesh imports are available for SL.

Again, thank you for giving us extra insight on a whole new metaverse. :)

I appreciate that very much, Robert, thanks! I do hope at least some readers are at least somewhat interested, and that those who aren't won't mind too much that 5-7% of NWN content (I checked) is devoted to very brief posts about Blue Mars.

That elf is too light skinned to be a dark elf. Should be a midnight blue to ebony black.
