D is for Demo. Or Disaster

1 D is for Demo

D is for oh, dear! I had an attempted shopping day a couple of days ago. I say attempted, because I tried my luck at The Home Show. I got in, but it was full and after standing in one store for about 30 minutes, less than half of the items had rezzed. I tried cam shopping, but more or less ran into the same problem. Repeatedly. All in all, I spent a little over an hour there and finally gave up with plans to go back another day.

So since I had Lindens burning a hole in my pocket, I hopped over to FaMESHed. I knew I was in for the same problem there when I saw nothing but floating heads, missing vendors and orange puffs. Fortunately, things started to rez after several minutes but I knew better than to try on demos there.

So, off I flew home. Now, I didn’t originally plan to try on four different demos at the same time, but I was still suffering lag and although I thought I had removed each one when they didn’t show up initially, they obviously had a different idea. Suddenly they all appeared. Well, about half way. And there they stayed. They wouldn’t fully settle onto my body and they would NOT come off! I was giggling as I took this quick snapshot before logging off to try later.

I went back the next day and bought all four items I tried on, after logging back in to a completely normal avatar, albeit dressed in nothing but demos. I even changed before I headed back to do my shopping.

Disaster averted. And my “D” entry was completed.
