Quitting a Job with Style

2 05 2009

Hello all!

 

Seems that we are in the New Era for everything. Some people got plenty of creativity to everything you can imagine, including quitting a job, like Jarrad Farbs, from 2k Games Australia did. He is the developer of some most interesting browser games like ROM CHECK FAIL, FISHIE FISHIE and  POLYCHROMATIC Funk Monkey . Farbs was even envolved on the development of Bioshock, a first-person shooting game for Xbox and Pc Platform.

Following Mario through an above-ground and sublevel and into one of Farb’s own retrofunky titles, he gets to scream “I QUIT” several times more than the average office person ever has in their lifetime. We could have used a few more levels, but it’s the best gameplay we’ve ever found in a farewell note. Then he leaves us with a touch of sentimentality, claiming that “his princess is in another castle.”

Next time when i feel like to quit my job i should do something like that. Hm, i should learn with him first.

Here is the live demonstration of this Game wich shows up his feelings thru messages during the small game – http://www.farbs.org/Message.html





What is your purpose on SL?

15 10 2008

Second Life purposes : Some has, others doesn´t.

Some people believe that Second Life is a good place for relax, to unstress about the RL deeds, find a place to throw up all the anger and frustration about the real life is, to find a match for their heart, to do anything they feel to, etc. Well, im on this option by the way.

Real life should be more flexible like we have on our Second Life. It is cool, because outside this metaverse you are just one more on the hood, some unknow guy that does like everybody do. But with some small skills you have, that may not have that importance to people around you, it´s a great matter who does live inside this metaverse. You can express yourself thru your skills in a magical way, that you become not just someone else, but YOURSELF, with a good name. Purposes are like this.

Some people likes to have their purposes on relationship (i find this issue more hard to discuss), because some people think on the same way and it gets more easier to their understand on what they feel about “seeking love”…

But you cannot think just because some people spends most of their time on this metaverse, they doesn´t have a life. Most of people, works, to pay their sim tiers, or works on offices that allows to run second life when it is in break time. They got real friends, but they know how to share their friendship between those two lifes. Some might not have much real friends in RL, but the least one or two their have they can count on them like brothers and sisters. Also applies that in SL friendship.

SL friendship is a very vague issue. Because it´s more harder to know who you can trust, who you can tell your problems and secrets, indeed, but that really depends on you to choose who you want to share it. Some people doesn´t like to bring their RL to SL, because of this. I think it is cool to separate both lives and the purpose is to meet people with same tastes on lot of things, have things in common, but talking about life is too much drama that i think it doesnt have to happen.

Do you usually tell where you from to people? Your real name and stuff? I think what is important is everybody can speak in english. Where you from, what you do, doesn´t really matter to no one else. What it does matter is your skills, your talents and creativity that can bring most positive things to Second Life, helping their growing up even more.





Stop with typing animation!

8 11 2007

Don't type anymore!If you find really annoying seeing hundres of people chatting and making those typing sounds and animations like you are typing in the air, and seeing yourself being like a noob or even you wanna hide when you are typing to someone else, I have a solution for you.

 You need first set up your debugger settings (Pressing ctrl + Alt + D at same time) and it will appear two new menus: Client and Server. Now you just need to set up in your Client Menu > Debug Settings Option.

 It will open up a window with a dropdown menu. Go look on the list for the “playtypinganim” and next you put on False mode on dropdown below.

 Now it’s done! You won’t never hear yourself typing and writing at nowhere like a noob.

OBS: It will only work for your avatar. You will still hear other people typing and seeing their animations, unlessDebug Settings you ask them read this little tutorial and make everyone happy at the end.
