About Myself

I'm also in Second Life, Kitely and Alternate Metaverse (AMV). :)
(I'm stuck with Jerom in OSgrid)

If you're from SL and call me Jerralyn, welcome. If not and you call me Jerom, I'm okay with that but I prefer Jerralyn. :) Look up the meaning of Jerralyn and you'll understand why. That said...

To extend what my bio says... I am your local, friendly IT dude who is a vixen in SL and Open Sim. LOL...

My Interests

guitar, photography, reading, parks

OpenSimulator Version

I don't run a OS server (yet)

Viewer Version

Latest versions of these viewers, preferably in Linux:
1) Firestorm
2) Alchemy AgileAkita (perpetual) beta
3) Cool VL Viewer ... ALchemy and VL sometimes swap places but FS is always #1!

(Now if someone is gracious enough to port Black Dragon to Linux AND fully functioning with Open Sim... might donate a few $ for that... hmm.)

Hardware

Some humble, hacked up Windows laptop from 2018 that triple boots Win11, Linux (Ubuntu Studio) and Android-x86. Not what I'd use for a server running 24/7, but it's pretty cool for desktop/workstation duty, having 2 SSD's and 32 GB system RAM on board. :) And it's portable, ha.

Yay, here I am at Paris in AMV! Took me a bit of time last night to settle on a basic look. I'm sporting the Athena body with the Lelutka Erin head, same as my OSgrid avi, but lighter skin. I've also tried to add a bit more thickness to her compared to the other one.

I'd love to age myself a bit more here. That's not a typo! Is there a good store in Open Sim that has aged body skins? I have tried out the aged face skins from the BoM pack and they do work well, but I could use some body freckles and veins for a more convincing aged look. Not too old, let's say 45-55, basically my age group IRL.

TIA :)
Yeah, I'm in... For those of you in SL... I'm just saying, if the upcoming NUX avatars don't look this good, I think Open Sim wins LOL...

This is excellent for a starter avi! However, too tall for my taste by a foot. Plus I need my BoM skins, makeup and tattoos. This isn't BoM but it could be transferred to a newer Athena 6 body if desired. At the very least I'll transfer this outfit to my shorty from OSgrid, once I have her built in AMV. Cataplexia Numbers has done a great job with the starter looks!

Off to work on adding my OSgrid favorites here in AMV. See ya later!

ETA @ 14:25 SLT : New Firestorm viewer just dropped today, 6.6.8. Try it soon.
I can't hold it in anymore...

IAR issues aside, I'm choosing Alternate Metaverse as my new second home in Open Sim!!!

Spent last evening researching several HG's... including several recommendations given to me via PM. I chose AMV as it has some incredible places within its HG. I also chose it as the HG owners have extensive SL and Open Sim experience, a huge plus in my book.

After dinner tonight, I'll be copying a few bits of info from one of my OSgrid avis, and picking up some clothes and bodies from the AviWorlds mall. Yes... I will begin with an Athena based body with the Lelutka Erin head as that's the figure I use the most in OSgrid (and Open Sim in general).

No worries, Ruth2 fans! Because this is a new start of sorts I also plan on creating a Ruth2 based avi or two on AMV. I'm already working on one with my Kitely account. I want to use the LuvMyBod and Diana bodies from Hyacinth... but we'll see, I did manage an Athena like take recently with the Ruth2 BoM... see my previous post here with D*ffy Du*k.

I'll keep OSgrid around as a last resort... and because that HG does have some great sims as well. I love some of the space and jungle sims in it.

Thanks to everyone who recommended a few places, can't wait to get going on AMV. :D
ETA: Spax Orion mentioned something to me in the comments section of his recent post... I likely will need permission from a OSgrid region operator... in that case... I'll probably rebuild things slowly instead. As it is I have lots of photos of my favorite outfits from OSgrid (and Kitely), much more than whatever I have posted online. I'll be okay with this, not a problem. I can always pick three or four looks and redo them quickly enough. Not hard really. I'll just keep looking at a few more sims and see which one would suit me. Any sim that has a Suitcase in the inventory and is good about backups, griefer issues, customer support and fault tolerance should do.

Well, here I go... I'll have to see if I can pull off a IAR (inventory backup) run in OSgrid... need to read more documentation and maybe the OSgrid forums before attempting.

Here's the current version from the OS archives if you're curious: http://opensimulator.org/wiki/IAR_Format_0.3

I plan on importing as much as I can of my OSGrid identity somewhere else. My first choice is Alternate Metaverse, DigiWorldz is my second; I'm looking at a few more sims before I settle on my next, official second account. I won't send it to Kitely as I want to keep that account as lean and mean as I can, even though I've chosen it now as my main Open Sim account.

I may be overthinking my actions here, but I'm sick and tired of the file corruption issues I put up with when TPing with my OSgrid account. That account won't go away. I'll keep it around for testing purposes.

Okay, enough talk, time for me to eat dinner then I'll see what can be done. Carry on!
Here we are... my Ruth2 avi in Kitely that has similar body dimensions to my Athena body, especially the one that uses the Lelutka Erin head. It measures 5.33 feet\1.625 meters.

I'm getting there, still a work in progress. :)

This is consistent with the casual look I sport in Open Sim and Second Life, so it's something I can enjoy. Next time... I'll try to put together something business oriented... then fantasy... a gown... in due time. ^_^

After a year or so of being in Open Sim... I'm beginning to work on a proper OS avatar without any of the pirated material. I know Dorena's World has some Ruth2 outfits. Are there other spots I can TP to for more Ruth2 goodness? This will take some time for me, and my RL week ahead looks quite busy so I may not have much time to work on this until the end of it.

I know some of the Athena clothes I have now can fit Ruth2 with some alphas... the shoes I have on here are for the Athena. Right then, I must snooze now so I'll have to check replies later. Thanks for looking + any advice.

Luna Lunaria: Here's a link to a pdf of @JupiterRowland 's list of destinations. Feel free to download it and pass it along. If there's interest, I can also post it in the Opensimworld discord server: https://driv... 20 days ago
Is it me or has OSgrid been having some database issues lately? Sometimes when I change outfits it takes longer to rez stuff, or parts don't rez at all, forcing me to log out and back in to fully wear outfits.

Also I've had some issues with my heads and bodies showing up as white blobs. In those cases I'm forced to unpack another copy and rework my heads and bodies to point to the new copy.

I've no such issues with my Kitely account. May end up using that more often vs OSgrid.

ETA: This is one example from my OSgrid account. I have a few other outfits that look worse as far as rezzing that haven't been fixed yet. Right now I have 144 outfits for my account in OSgrid; many of them are just slight tweaks to a main outfit.

ETA2: Bloody h#$l, it's also happened to my Kitely action figures! One example here, I did clear out the caches and logged back in before making this screenshot at Fantonelli (don't worry, just added the bra and panties to be somewhat decent lol but I need to show the problem I'm having):

Jupiter Rowland: I guess this may be related: I keep seeing some male mesh body malfunctioning, at least on newer OpenSim versions. I don't know which one it is, I don't use this kind of body (it's none with Roth in t... 3 months ago
Ok... just looked through some of the recent front page posts. I've been here in Open Sim for about nine months now.

I have accounts in OSgrid and Kitely.

I'll have to admit a good deal of my wardrobe is possibly copybotted. I'd like to know if anyone is willing to send me a list of LM's showing truly original, OS based stuff (aside from Lunaria), I'd appreciate it. Most of my wardrobe is rigged to the Athena body. I also have a small number of Ruth2 takes. For my male alts (yes, I have a few, using the same names that I established for them in SL), I use Adonis and Roth2.

There was a discussion recently that influenced me to write this post. It's located below the post from Luna Lunaria, #92052. I totally understand creators desiring to be compensated for their creations. I have spent a fair amount of L$ to gather some of my clothes in SL. I wouldn't mind paying a few K$ or O$ for some creations on this side of the metaverse, as I think that's quite fair.

Thansk to anyone that can help me out, I appreciate it. I'd prefer that the links be included publicly (instead of PMing me), so other users can find it easily.

Gawrsh... noticed a lot of you gave me thanks in messages recently. I'd go back in world right now but don't have my laptop with me today at work.

Thanks everyone! 😊

HIII... just hi :)

(I need to add more clothes into my Kitely self... I generally have better uptime with myself on Kitely VS OSgrid... see ya!)

I'll be out for a bit... some of you who follow me on twitter, MeWe, facebook and newTumbl already know this, but I'm in the midst of packing boxes and cleaning up IRL before moving. I'll be in NY state briefly with relatives. They are assisting with my search for a new home. I should be back on sometime after Easter Sunday. Take care! ^_^

I'm on Kitely now as Jerralyn Franzic. See ya later! ^_^

Goshdarnit... I am getting more RL stuff done (and hanging out more in SL), but I want to get back on Open Sim. My account right now is on OSgrid. Is it actually possible to copy/transfer my assets from OSgrid to another provider, like Kitely? Or am I starting from scratch if I choose to have a backup account? Please advise.

I'll come back later after dinner to check responses.

Changing display name on OSgrid

I've been around for nearly two months. Why am I required to hold off on changing my display name until the early afternoon on January 19th?


Aaack: OSGrid doesn't supports display names, so don't pay attention to what the viewers say, even if you could change your display name once per second it wouldn't be shown to others. 1 years ago
Best places for safe hubs/home point
I've designated an adult hub I use as a home point in Second Life. I'd like to use an adult hub in OSgrid as my home point, so at least I don't get caught someplace weird to me while accidentally stuck in my birthday suit (been here a week, yeah, that's happened in SL as I don't have a home/rental there).

Thanks for any pointers!

Namib

Denied access. I'm using my original Open Sim account in OSgrid.

Soul-Shopping-Sky

Awesome! Love the layout, too... I dare say it's like going to a shopping event in SL but much more fun :)

London City

Great region to visit! I barely had enough time to look around. I'll be back for sure. Lots of little bits I'm sure I've missed, seems to be a failry large sim. Worth a look, and I'll say that there's plenty for the dudes to feast on as well, shopping wise... means I need to send my male alts there very soon! :) Thanks again, it was a splendid run today for me. (Seeing Kurt Cobain underground ...

Carima-Callas

Great sim, much to see here. It's well suited for many TP's... love the castles and ballrooms. :)

Rayvn's Roost Concourse

Been here several times since I've had a OSgrid account (Dec. 2021). Now here to build up my Kitely avatars (main + alts). Nice to see some good clothes for the guys, too. Highly recommended! :D

Advantis

I've shopped from time to time at Advantis, and it's hard for me to not find what I want there! Also fun to explore the other sims in the grid, I love it! (Very nice for my alts too... :) ) I'll check out the new sci-fi stuff later. ^_^

Our World 2022

Incredibly thought provoking, and superbly executed! Well worth the visit if you're willing to tackle the weighty subject matter.

trails

Sent an alt here, she loves it. I heard she photobombed the Trump V Biden fistfight LOL! I'll be around ASAP. :)

CyberPunk

Well worth the trip! Crank your settings up to High or Ultra if your PC can handle it. :)
