My third rezday passed without my noticing (back at the end of November). I don't feel older, and I certainly don't feel wiser. I'll take that back: I do notice that an increasing number of profiles show later rezdays than mine, so I guess I'm getting older relative to the population.
In more interesting news, I finally paid a visit to InWorldz. I had created an account months back but never got around to logging in. The bad news was that I was never able to appear as more than a cloud, despite logging in several times, clearing the cache, and all manner of tricks learned from wrestling with Second Life clients.
And that's the good news, as any Second Life client can also be an InWorldz client. I think I used the Phoenix client, which is already configured to log into InWorldz through a drop-down menu on the start page. I rezzed in a welcome area, looked around, and found two warehouse-like stores with free clothing and accessories for men and women. (The two are separate, so if your virtual faith requires women to shop separately from men, InWorldz has you covered.) The freebies appeared to be the same type of mix as in Second Life: some good stuff, some adequate stuff that will suffice until one obtains money and can shop for something better, and some stuff that is best buried deeply and then sealed with concrete. Although, honestly, everything looks good on a cloud.
I'll try again some day and see if an actual avatar appears, duck walk and all. But the transition from SL to InWorldz seems to be fairly seamless, beyond the big downside of losing years of carefully-accumulated inventory. (A second downside: as Miss Emilly Orr says, "I just can't register for a company who decided to end their corporate name in 'Z'. I just can't." I haven't gone that far, but I feel her language-mangling pain. It's a terrible name.)
