  • This is awesome.

    We really want slideshare to work in second life ... if anyone has ideas about how to make that happen, hit me up. You can send me a private msg from my profile.

  • This is as naked as you get in Kaneva. As you can see, I've made some progress with customizing the bathtub and with hanging a picture.

  • I came back home with a bathtub, a ceiling fan and a TV. Plopped the stuff on the floor from the inventory. Moving things around isn't particularly easy -- instead of dragging/dropping, you need to push the direction arrows on a pop-up window. You also need to remember to click the green check mark or whatever you've been doing will be lost. This is probably the most annoying interface element of the game.

  • This is the electronics store in the mall where you buy TVs and washers. You can't buy these goodies on the shelf, but if you look closely, you'll see a box with Spore, the Will Wright's upcoming evolution game. There are also boxes of Wiis and Xboxes that you can't buy.

  • Now back to the mall for some frames. In another strange navigation twist, you can't teleport directly to the store (or, rather, I couldn't figure out how), so I had to go to the main spawn area and than walk around looking for the frame shop. No meaningful signage to help you negotiate the space, either.

    As I said earlier, you can't just buy something by clicking on it. Instead, you need to approach the automatic clerk, press TAB to summon a list of available merchandise. After that, the acquisition process is pretty straightforward, although the item descriptions are somewhat cryptic (what's 'converted to 261'?)
