Restore Restore Restore

We have a new (full) SIM for Tidra since last week. We down- and uploaded the terraforming from the old island to the new one, so we had exactly the same landscaping. Now we had the problem to move all the stuff from one SIM to the other.

Weeeeeeellll, I rolled up my sleeves and started... writing down the exact position (X, Y, Z) of each object, take it, move it over, rezz it, put it in that same position again (X, Y, Z). You can imagine, that this is a very boring, exhausting and high efforting progress. And there were around 2.500 objects to move. *sigh*

The second day I suddenly remembered that "restore to last location" function in Emerald (not sure, if it exists in other viewers also)... and.... YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! It worked easily! Take an object and restore it at the "last location" in the new SIM, which puts it exactly where it should have been.

I think I could have moved the whole stuff within some seconds, if I would have returned it all at once into my inventory and restore it in the new location; but I didn't want to take the risk. But it made the work much, much easier.

I thought I mention it, because everyone I talked to, never recognized, what that restore-function is good for. It not only helps you to move your stuff from one SIM to the other (which will be rare), but it also helps you, when you accidently delete something (which happens often to me!) - Just restore it from your trash-can, then restore to last location, and voila! It will be at the right place again. Works purrfectly! Thanks, emerald!

Congratz, my Boys!

Have not written for a while. Busy weeks it's been - RL and SL. One of the events was the preparation for the SL-wedding of my boys Mick and Brian. While I was busy organizing their wedding in SL, they and my Kenshi were busy organizing their wedding in real life.

Belgium was after the Netherlands the second country in the world which allowed (since 2003) same-sex marriage (with full rights; registered partnership with restrictions they had already since the year 2000).

And today, 15th of May 2010, is the big day for my lovely boys! I still can't believe, that my sweeties become husbands today! Too bad I can't be with them in this big moment in their lives, but I'm with them with all my heart and all my thoughts.

Mr. & Mr. lil devils

The SL-wedding will be on Monday, 17th of May, at 12.00 pm SLT on our (new) Isle of Tidra.
