I-Voyager Les Echos

Another (very poor...) parallel world, where you are supposed to get knowledge on various subjects and chat with other avatars.

I was the only one to be connected, good for the lag!

The configuration panel has the great merit to be clear and simple.

Unfortunately the customizing of your avatar is simple too, so you have little choice...

Your camera is always behind you (I didn't figure out how I could look at my face...) and the movements controls are somehow cumbersome.

You can access to different medias presented by mock-ups.

Nos rêves...Our dreams...I don't know if I am dying for dreaming in this scenery.

Notre travail...Our work...I understand better, it's a place where you work, not for fun.

When I go downstairs I lose the control of my avatar who is wandering from me, which is rather unpleasant...

On the first floor my camera is above me, I cannot position it just behind me but something is nevertheless visible...

Second Life!

Quite inconclusive when your are used to SL or Hipihi (I prefer Hipihi even whith my invisible avatars!) but it is just a beginning for the French economic newspaper les Echos.

Good luck Les Echos, but try and don't repulse your readers, 3D-Web deserves better treatment than this "voyage au bout de l'ennui"...

A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.

Daneel you are great!

Thanks to Daneel I have now a clear vision on where I settled in Hipihi!

Daneel made the reporter for me and took some picks of my place.

It looks like a mountain peak!

With canyons all around, I love it!

Some other picks of the Hipihi world.


Do you mean your birthplace? Or anybody's birthplace?

Is it kind of Help or Orientation Island in Second Life?


I already went to a place where Vidal Sassoon had a representation, is it the same location?

I do not recognize the spot.

Next time I will make an appointment, I need a better haircut.

And if it can be used in Second Life, good:)

I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

I want to explore my submissive feelings. like to have some lessons by knowing mistresses. maybe one will be my true mistress later.
if newbies want to talk to me, put away ur dick first. u can ask for some information, but not sex.
i prefer women and shemales ( the nice ones)

Thank you Sue, Zafka and Daneel:))

More news from this night.

First, I would like to give big thanks to Sue, Zafka and Daneel for their help and support:)

Now I have a better idea of what my problem is and I am more confident for the upcoming days.

So it is my video card (Nvidia Geforce 6200) which is not meeting the minimum system requirements.

I thought it was a state-of the -art video card, kind of joker I could use in any situation, what a disillusion!

Technology is running faster than me, obviously...

For interested people here are the minimum requirements, in case you would like to discover yourself the world of Hipihi:

Operating System: Windows 2000(SP4) / XP(SP2)
Internet Connection: DSL/CABLE/LAN
Network speed:50Kbps
Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 6600/ATI Radeon 9600 64MB
Screen Resolution: 1024*768
CPU:Intel P4 2GHz/AMD Sempron 2500+
Computer Memory: 512MB
DX:DirectX 9.0c

Sue and Zafka inform me that a new version with lower requirement as regards the video card will arrive very shortly, it's a matter of a week or so.

Anyway I will think about upgrading my video card and if I find one reaching the 10000 I buy it!

Well at least I put an option on it.

And now some picks related to my last night in Hipihi.

My new home, somewhere in the South of Mainland.

My mortgage deed.

Attempt to change my terrain.

Well...I will have to wait a little, so far my land is a misty land...

Trying to create something, I obviously succeeded to create something, but what...?

Yes, what...?

1:19am, time to go back home.

I mean to my bed...

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.
