Enjoying Bondage April 2018 – slaves and drones

For this month I selected two “Enjoying Bondage” pictures. The first is based on slave kelly fixed in a steel frame at home to absolute inmobility (see Diary 2018 (62)). I added slave slut cecy suspended from the ceiling and I added the two “Easter” drones Flo Drone and Drone Flo. The collage sums up our bondage fun of the last weeks pretty well.

The second “Enjoying Bondage” picture is more personal. I enjoyed some self bondage at “Mastering the Zen”  and I think it’s worth an entry for our enjoying bondage series.

Diary 2018 (57) April 1st – Mario’s Easter Light Show

I had an invitation to for Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, to visit Mario2 Helstein’s Easter Light show. Angelique accompanied me to the event, which was once again at the Theatre On The Hill. Mario presented an amazing show again. The light effects are breathtaking, the music is selected thoughtfully. There were quite some elements that I saw in previous light shows of Mario, but it looks different from every angle, and different if you zoom in and out – and even more important, you I can’t get enough watching it. Following the show was a real Easter event for me.

Of course I took dozends of pictures again, much more than I can show here. I got the link to a videotaping of the whole light show from Mario a couple of hours after the show. The video was recorded by Peet Auer. There you can get an idea how amazing the light show looks like seeing it live.

And the next day I got the linkto another video showing some parts of the Easter Light show at the Theater In the Hill. This video was taken by Suzie Anderton of InWorld Films.

Thank you for the great show, Mario!

Ebbe and Oz talk Second Life in the cloud

Second Life moving into a cloud? I first thought, that will not change a thing for me as a user. But it does in several ways. First of all, Linden Lab will be able to turn fix costs into variable costs. That might help them to increase earnings and hence helps to keep Second Life running. Good News!
But there’s more that might change by the move. Nowadays Linden Lab’s revenues mostly depend on land tiers and as land is quite expensive it limits growth – revenues are more likely decreasing today. The move into a cloud might offer new pricing models based on usage, something that doesn’t frighten most users off as much as regular recurring payments do.
Right now the move into a cloud is decided but there’s no fixed date for it yet. The plans about a new pricing model aren’t yet fixed either, there’re just some ideas out so far.
Inara Pey’s blog post gives us some insight of what to expect. I look forward to the change and I hope it will be a smooth move with only little unavailability of Second Life.

It’s a huge effort. Right now the Second Life grid is a proprietary set-up in a hosting facility that we have customised for the purposes of what we’re doing – which made sense a decade and half ago. But these days, with the services from Google and Amazon and Microsoft with cloud infrastructures, it makes a lot of sense to shift our technologies to be on top of those cloud infrastructures instead of having our own.

Ebbe Altberg, VWPBE, March 15th, 2018.

That the Lab is working on moving Second Life to the cloud is becoming more and more widely known. First mentioned by Landon Linden (aka, Landon McDowell, the Lab’s Chief Product Officer) during his SL14B Meet the Lindens session, it was “officially” announced in August 2017 via a blog post.

The return of Second Life Last Names – update with audio

When I joined Second Life more than 10 years ago I had to pick a last name from a list of about 20 or 30 names and decided for “Maurer”. Up until today you know that those wearing the last name Maurer come most probably from Germany and as the list of offered last name changed you can also suspect their potential rezz date. Then Linden Lab disposed the last names in Second Life and we first cracked jokes about the fast growing “Resident family”. But as it is with many changes we got used it with the years. Nowadays having a last name clearly indicates that you’re an oldie in Second Life.

Now I read in Inara Pey’s blog about Linden Lab’s plan to reintroduce last names and what problems are to be solved with the return of last names. For me it was quite interesting and I wanted to share it in this blog.

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Following the Lab’s announcement that last names will be returning to Second Life  later in 2018 (see my post here), Oz and  Patch Linden have been providing further details on the change.

Patch has been commenting on the forum thread related to this topic (and the Lab’s 15th anniversary blog post in general), starting here, and I’ve also quoted him below.

Oz Linden took time to address questions on the subject at the Content Creation User Group (CCUG) meeting on Thursday, March 22nd.

The following is a summary of what has been said thus far, predominantly using Oz Linden’s comments at the CCUG meeting. I’ve attempted to summarise the key points as series of short topics, and have included audio extracts of Oz’s comments with each topic.

Note that the audio extracts draw together related comments voiced at different points in the session, as Oz addressed questions. I…

Enjoying Bondage March 2018 – Angelique

This month’s enjoying bondage picture is particular in many ways. First of all, I had in mind already that it shouldn’t be a collage but should just be Angelique and me in a bondage and spanking scene. Then, when I came inworld Wednesday, March 7th, in the afternoon for a bit of simploring, Angelique was also inworld unexpectedly and she called me to have a look at a pair of nipple clamps. She has some already, but she and I were not happy with them as they are static, they are attached to her avatar body but when she walks they don’t stay attached to her nipples. Now she found some that are not static. I joined her at the store and after looking at a demo version, we got not only these nipple clamps for her, but also labia clamps, weights, cuffs, chains, an anal hook and a spreader bar.

I took Angelique to our studio and attached all of the above. And yes, of course I took pictures! The photo shooting did take up same time and I instinctively began to tease Angelique, who was unable to move, more and more. Finally I had to gag her to prevent her from protests. And soon later I forgot about taking pictures and began to take advantage of her. Her moans were infectious. We had a very intense session, a session that I will remember for quite a while.

So for March 2018 I have these 4 pictures showing Angelique in a very naughty, erotic, and exciting bondage:

Enjoying Bondage February 2018 – The slut cage

For the enjoying bondage series I selected a picture of slave kelly in her moveable slut cage. The orinal picture was taken Thursday, February 8th, at Heavy Bondage Club and shows Mistress Jenny and me with slave kelly. I added slave slut cecy from a picture I took of her at Puerto Esclava, slave Bella in her new leather cuffs and harness, slave Flo in her pink drone suit and Angelique in her leotard with her hands cuffs in front. This way also the highlights of our February activities so far are captured in one single picture.
