Hope is tomorrow's veneer over today's disappointment.

I am tenacious and this evening I try again the link http://www.hipihi.com/application/application_en.jsp provided by Daneel in his blog Daneel Ariantho's 2nd life
After few minutes I get the following screen:
More or less the same screen as the one I got yesterday, with the notable remark that it is faster...
5 minutes later, there is a big step forward, similar to the first step of Man on the Moon, I can see some familiar boxes that I can fill in.
The gender by default is Male, why on Earth males are always first on the list and privilegiated over women?
Date of Birth...only four possibilities...and a dash in case you are in trouble...
So I choose the biggest figure: 4, don't ask why.
Ahh! Another box is appearing, actually the first on the left was for the month, then here is the day...
And some green bars are encouraging me...
Blimey! The green bars have disappeared, this system is playing with mine (my nervous system)
Again the green bars, I decide to enter my SL birthdate, I wonder if I will have to enter the year...
Yes, I have to enter the year, I choose 2007, of course.
And now I have to key the country in.
The list goes up to Belgium.
Belgium seems to be the last country in the world for Chinese (just joking;)
As I am becoming impatient I enter Belgium, for Chinese I will be Belgian, after all I speak French (but it is not said if it is Walloon or Flemish side...)
No more pick for you now, I keep on having an eye on my Hipihi page, perhaps at midnight Zanzibar will be reached and I will be able to register at last.
You will be informed.
You must first have a lot of patience to learn to have patience.
