I discovered Opensim around 2013 and have loved it ever since because it really encourages personal creativity.

About Myself

Not much to say, really. I discovered Opensim a long time ago and tried a few of the early versions, then joined Openworld and learned to build.
I had been a member of SL but found it too much like the "Wild West", so did a little bit of building and clothes making there and then came back to Opensim.

My Interests

I'm interested in building and exploring. There's little I like more than exploring other people's creations and expressing my own creativity through building.

Favorite Quote

Is it just me, or is everything shit?

Music I Like

Very eclectic taste in music - everything from opera/classical to heavy rock. If I had to choose one genre, I think it would be Northern Soul.

Films I Like

I'm limited in my taste of films. Action and Sci Fi would probably be my films of choice.

Books I Like

Can't read, I'm an avatar

My Heroes

Never set anyone on a pedestal - they will always fall off.

OpenSim Version

0.9.2 Yeti

Viewer Version

Firestorm OS - latest release

Well, because of the recent tech issues I haven't had time to make a halloween scene, so in an attempt to make up for it I'll be streaming creepy stories over the halloween period. Just turn on your "music" and listen. There is a short delay before it starts to play, so please be patient. Happy Halloween!

This pic is Shay, Sandy and I sitting by the waterfall at midnight listening to the creepy stories. Midnight is always the best time to listen to scary stories.

Our Web Site is currently in beta and is currently being populated (sorry, no SSL connection yet, but we don't collect or store any data from it.)

Bernicia Prime Adult Store.

I'll leave it to your imagination what's in there - unless you want to find out for yourself ;)
Some cool... erm.. I mean... hot stuff. No child avatars allowed in this store.
...
Thank you to all who offered advice and help in the recent crash, including those who commented, IM'd and emailed. The problem could not be fixed by remote, so I've reset the whole server and started again from scratch (using last backed up OARs and IARs)

This last week Bernicia has been limping along on a standalone server with SQL Lite (the problem was so bad that I couldn't even get a working MySQL working). Now it is back to normal, running on Dreamgrid again with Robust and MySQL.

Thanks again to all those who contacted me, you have given me great confidence in the Opensim Community.
...
We are back but with caveats. Dreamgrid stopped working on our server after installing a web server. We uninstalled the web server but that only fixed half the problem. Dreamgrid crashes when "checking diagnostic port".

We know that all needed ports are working and open because everything was working fine before. If anyone can help with this problem so that we can get back days of work lost, please IM me here or email zoe.synclair [at] gmail.com.

Meanwhile, Bernicia Prime is running on a standalone instance of Opensim. We lost about two days of improvements (the last time we backed up to oar) and, of course, all inventory for avatars which means that new features cannot be restored unless we get Dreamgrid working again. The sim is, however, open for visits!

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Temporarily Closed for Server Update

...

We've now developed the northern side of the region into a beautiful woodland walk. Take the Honeysuckle pathway and enjoy!
Also made more signage to guide you to what you want.

...
Thanks to all who visit but please note:
We are still getting visitors to our old URL. This is a small server that is now only used for test and development and is no longer being used to host Bernicia. It is largely a blank sim. Our new URL is bernicia.outworldz.com:8002 If you have landmarks to the old one, please change or delete them and use the new one instead.

The old URL is still active but only for the purposes of new projects and hypergridding by the admin. To enjoy Bernicia Prime, please use the new one.

Thank you.
...

The region is back after emergency maintenance. Sorry for any inconvenience :)

...
New Server is now public.
I've transfered Bernicia to a new server which has more memory and bandwidth. Hopefully, this will help with lag problems.

Meanwhile, I'll be using the old server for development of future projects.
...
I've been experimenting with Alchemy Viewer, which is very fast on Opensim but have noticed that it doesn't rezz textures from the Opensim Texture Library. I would, therefore recommend using Firestorm when visiting Bernicia, as I do use some textures from the OS Library for parts of the ground.

Also, Bernicia will be moving to a faster server soon - the new server is in Alpha development and I'll let you know when it's ready to go public.

Happy Opensimming.

...
New Store Opening Soon - here's a small sample that's available in Synclair Designs at Bernicia now. All original Textures and Authorized imported Mesh.
This is one of our first collection - The seaside collection. More to come, but I wanted to get these out whilst it's still summer in the North (LOL)

Oh, and did I mention - they're free!
...

It's a new dawn and I've installed a dedicated server for the region, so it will be operating 24/7 (with occasional restarts and maintenance down time).

...
I've migrated the region to SSD and would appreciate it if visitors would let me know here about your experience when visiting Bernicia. If you have visited before and can remember your experience, it would be good to know if it has improved or got worse since you last visited.

In particular, It would be helpful if you could let me know about any difficulties in teleporting to the grid and any rez problems you have whilst there. Be aware, though, that the region is quite large and is run on a PC, not a dedicated server, so initial rez times will be slower - up to 5 minutes. Other than that, please let me know if you have difficulties in moving around, copying items etc., it would be a great help.

Our core times vary depending on my workload but will hopefully be between 11am and 8pm BST (UK Time).

Thanks, and stay sa.

After a couple of months "offline", I decided that today is a good time to open up again. It's my RL wedding anniversary, and since no-one is allowed to go out of their RL homes here, going out on Opensim is the next-best thing.
