Gonna at least begin this one without the Hucka D. Bought additional 2048 in Gaeta next to the old 2048 to make 1 4096 square piece of property. Immediately populated the new property with trees to match those on the old one. Then began the real work of combining my two 30x30x30 galleries (Gallery at the Temple of TILE and Edwardston Station Gallery) using prims from the two lots combined. As of today I appear to be basically finished with this process — I am set up in Gaeta, then, and have even moved both gallery kiosks to that location, making these, I suppose, the “official” versions of each gallery. Apparently they were suppose to be combined after all. I was quite worried about lag in the sim after my computer crashed not once but three times the other night. But tonight in walking around the Gaeta gallleries, things were jerky, true, but I didn’t crash. Think this will work, then. I’ll create some pictures asap. Amazingly (again), the Gallery at the Temple of TILE, although basically the same physical size (30x30x30), seems considerably larger than older versions; and was able to contain quite a few more pictures than the version I set up in Klein only a couple of weeks ago, for example. I deleted that version in the last couple of days, btw, and, as I said, moved the Gallery at the Temple of TILE connected kiosk to Gaeta to combine it with the ESG kiosk. Just like that.

So what are the fates of the various other galleries now that this combining in one place as come about again? I’ll keep a close monitor of visitors in Healy to see if I need to keep that essentially duplicate Edwardston Station Gallery, but at any rate I believe I’ll keep the CHRO gallery there (Something To CHRO About). Need to take pictures of that interesting place now! Currently it happens to be a nice spot for Edna’s Pocahontas related photos, which were about the only ones I couldn’t find a niche for in the new and improved G at the T o T. It also contains the pre-10×10 collages and some CHROmagraphs, although I want to spruce up and expand the realm of the latter sometime soon. Related to that, I also want to take up keyboard playing in a regular way again. The CHRO experience is both an art system and a music system.

Theoretically I could reduce to just the one 2048 parcel in Gaeta, although it would be a *tight* fit. Did I mention I already deleted the Victorian ground house, in order to reduce any extraneous cause of lag? I knew I’d never “live” there anyhoot, and in its place, further into the lot, I just set up one of those 10 prim Arcadia Asylum created Shop in a Box that I used as the module to create the ESG. It seemed appropriate, and you have a nice view of my new mini-forest from the roof.

So before bringing Hucka D. in, here’s my plan. I have a square 4096 parcel in Gaeta, just like I did in Otherland. On it, just as before, are the combined Edwardston Station Gallery and Gallery at the Temple of TILE. The newest version of this combined gallery idea, first experimented with in the Neith sim of Azure Island #1 this past holiday season, is the most compact so far, yet contains, I believe, almost all the pictures of the former combined versions.

I still haven’t figured out a place to put the Edwardston sim related pictures that I had in the subway of former versions, though.

I suppose we can’t wait any longer — “Here’s Hucka D. for ya.”

Hucka D.:

Glad to be here tonight.

bb:

I’m going to head inworld to take some pictures in a minute, Hucka D…

Hucka D.:

Honestly, baker b., I didn’t know if you were going to be able to pull off this new, combined gallery thing. But you did. Lag may be a problem.

bb:

Lag’s always a problem, Hucka D. Wherever I set it up.

Hucka D.:

True. So you’re giving up Klein, I suppose. Nautilus City is already a goner. And maybe the ESG in Healy? Aplasta obviously. Theoretically, you could reduce, then, just to the CHRO gallery in Healy and then the 2048 in Gaeta. But I don’t think you can. You’ll keep both 2048s together for a while… just live there, as you’re saying. Maybe build a labyrinth?

bb:

I just like the forest there now. The land seems to need to be healed for a spell. Before doing anything further to it.

Hucka D.:

You heal land with your forests.

bb:

Yes. Think so.

Hucka D.:

We can talk about the 10×10 later. You better go inworld for your pictures.

bb:

Thank you!
