    Today is the last day to get your hands on the special Squidcrotch edition Squidogram! (Don’t know what a Squidogram is? Picture each of your friends with a talking, kissing squid clinging to their face — or in this case, a bit lower — and you’ll grasp the concept quite firmly.)

    Each squid is just L$50, with 5- and 10-packs available at a nice discount! These special edition Squidograms are on sale only at Cuddlefish Junction, and only through the end of today, April 5! They won’t be for sale again until next spring — if ever!

    Reports in the latest medical journals indicate a sharp rise in the incidence of a bizarre condition known as “squidcrotch”. The spread of this mysterious affliction is expected to reach its peak in the coming week.

    We spoke with Dr. Carol Fische of the Center for Delirium Control to find out what the average person needs to know about squidcrotch. “Squidcrotch is an extremely laugh-threatening condition. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of preparation. The last thing anyone wants is to be caught with your pants down, a squid groping at your woozle with its slimy little suckers, and not knowing quite how to react.”

    Dr. Fische advised that squidcrotch victims should be treated with care and respect. “Your first reaction upon seeing a friend or loved one with a cephalopod clinging to their crotch will be to double over in laughter, or perhaps take incriminating snapshots. But nothing could be more damaging to that individual’s sense of personal dignity. Except posting a video on the internet, I suppose.”

    Research efforts have revealed that squidcrotch is spread from person to person, usually being transmitted from one friend to another after purchasing a peculiar bucket for L$50. Symptoms to be on the watch for include: moist, slimy underwear, an awkward feeling of satisfaction, and a large squid dangling from your doodly bits.

    Dr. Fische urged against visiting Cuddlefish Junction between March 31 and April 5, citing a high risk of hilarity ensuing.

    Max the Virtual Guidedog at Wheelies

    Virtual Helping Hands are having a fundraising benefit at Wheelies for continued development of Max the Virtual Guidedog.

    I first blogged about the scripted guide dog last August. Since that time, the VHH team has made amazing progress! They’re playing a video at Wheelies of their recent RL presentation about Max, and it’s great to see how many technical obstacles they’ve overcome.

    Old Max and New Max

    VHH are now trying to raise funds to purchase some needed development software so they can continue enhancing Max Voice, a cross-platform application providing text-to-speech for SL chat, as well as other assorted helpful functionality. The development software costs $550 — but the price is expected to go up drastically in mid-April, so they need to purchase it soon!

    When I visited them earlier today, VHH had raised $100 of the needed $550. The benefit runs until midnight PST tonight (March 29).

    You can help by donating L$ in SL at Wheelies or via Paypal at VirtualHelpingHands.org. Any amount helps.

    Squidogram promotional image: "This Valentine's Day... say it with tentacles."

    Nothing says I can’t keep my tentacles off you! like a kissing squid that delivers your custom message. Tell them you care (and have an keenly developed sense of humour) with a Squidogram this Valentine’s Day.

    The squid is L$50. The memories (and the lulz) are priceless.

    Available now at Cuddlefish Junction and Loco Pocos Island.

    Here’s another random UI tip for you, this one discovered by McCabe Maxsted:

    Drag and drop an inventory item into the IM window to send it to the person you’re IMing with. You don’t need to open their profile window! (This doesn’t work for group IMs, though.)

    The next version of Imprudence will have a little reminder note in the IM window, but you can do this with any SL viewer right now!

    The more you know!

    You find out the darnedest things, looking through the viewer source code.

    For example, if you Ctrl-click on a slider bar in the SL viewer (or Imprudence), it will reset that slider to its default value.

    The more you know!

    P.S. This is what a slider bar looks like: Example of a slider bar widget

    An abstract sculpture I created on a whim. It’s 8 prims, created it in Blender in about 1 hour.

    You can view it at my friend Skitty’s flower shop in Second Life. The sculpture is not for sale (but the pretty flowers are!).

    Squidogram at Loco Pocos Promotional Image. "Surprise! It's a Squidogram! Make 'em LOL with a kissing squid that delivers your custom message! Works on Loco Pocos &em; and big people, too! Squidogram by Cuddlefish Junction"

    The news is out — Squidograms are now for sale at Loco Pocos Island, too! Squidograms work great on Loco Pocos and regular avatars alike, and they’re definitely the most unique (and slimy-squid-surprise-smoochiest) kissogram around!

    I’ve updated the Squidograms to be extra reliable, even in the face of lag and server troubles, which there seem to be no shortage of these days. And to really sweeten the deal, I’ve increased the bulk discounts to business-sense-shattering levels!

    A single Squidogram is just L$50, and the recipient can hear your custom message (and get squid-smooched!) again and again, as many times as they want, forever and ever. Or buy a pack of 5 Squidograms for L$200, a savings of L$50 — that’s like getting another Squidogram for free! For an even bigger discount, head to Cuddlefish Junction and get a pack of 10 Squidograms for just L$350! Slimy cephalopod, Squidman — that’s like getting 3 for free! :o

    So log in and head over to Loco Pocos Island to pick up some Squidograms (and maybe a cute new accessory or five)! Or drop by Cuddlefish Junction for a Squidogram 10-pack or any of our other fine products, including the handy-dandy Deliverator!

    P.S. Don’t know what Loco Pocos are? You’re missing out! They’re hands-down the best tiny toon animal avatars in all of SL, and there are a ton of animals, clothing, and accessories to choose from. (And Damien keeps putting out new ones all the time! I don’t know how he does it, he’s like a cute-making machine. Does he ever sleep?!) Each avatar and item has a bunch of color options, so you can really customize your avatar to express your personality. You hardly ever see two Loco Pocos that look exactly alike. And yet they’re all so gosh-darned adorable!
