My first Chinese friends:)

My Picks

Their Picks

Conclusion: when I compare my picks with theirs, I am more eager to solve my technical problems.

My two new friends were very patient with me and they really tried to help as much as possible.

One of them (the male one) even gave me a link to something in Chinese that looks like a music Internet portal (he talked about Vitas who apparently is a European singer, first time I heard this name...)

He sent me some picks that you can see above (the ones with avatars under names!) so I now have my first Chinese contact in my gmail;)

To the soul, there is hardly anything more healing than friendship.
Thomas Moore,Irish poet (1779 - 1852)

The light is coming...

You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in.
Arlo Guthrie, US folksinger (1947 - )

Another try...

I decided to persevere...

The light is coming inch by inch.

I should have named my avatar Snail.

Now here is what I managed to get from Hipihi...



Create scene

Create terrain





Individual panel personal information

Individual panel personal settings

System settings

Possess Intel

And now to give evidence that I could take snapshots from Hipihi, here are some of my in-world picks.

Pitch dark

Flame in the night

Intel and the Moon

LETNI towards East (sunrise...?)

Is this what we could call making strides...?

Work in progress.

I am still invisible, but not totally blind, maybe I will find a good eye specialist.

By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, English preacher (1834 - 1892)

I give up...

Another try with Hipihi...

by the invisible Sofian...

Good start
Oups! male or female, you have to choose!

Well done!

And congratulations!

Let's go!

Let's jump into the water!

Be patient...

It's coming...


Where is the switch?

Some objects...

...are appearing...

the Mini Map..., at least;)

but the North is strange in China...

Many, many...


Something... blocking me...

Second log...

...into the water...


But where is the vendor?

Just in case...

...I add it to my Favorite Places

I am even able... turn around the place...

And what do I see?

Mountains far away!

In front of me, the South-West, good direction (I live in SW of FR...)

Behind me, the East-East, I told you that the North was strange in China.

I can teleport... using the Mini Map

After some flea leaps...

...balloons in the sky!

I dare trying...

...The Big TP

And I find myself...

...swimming in dark water:(

And final crash...

...again with the helicopter:(

It is never too late to give up our prejudices.
