Broken Image Links - Don't Click Them

Hi everyone - just an update here from the year *checks notes* 2023? What?? Holy crap that went fast! 

While it is kind of amazing that this site is still up and running, for as much as people talk about stuff on the internet lasting forever sometimes it doesn't. 

Back in the day I uploaded most of the Second Life screenshots for this blog to image hosting sites SL Universe and Snapzilla (aka slpics dot com) run by one of the OG residents. Tonight I was reminiscing a bit and starting to think about re-launching another old project, when my travels brought me back here via Hamlet Au's New World Notes, which is still going strong (F-yeah Hamlet!). 

I noticed that most of the images (linked from SL Universe / Snapzilla) on these posts weren't displaying properly, and when I attempted to follow the links back to the source I was redirected to a different site entirely, at which point my security software stepped in and said "whoa big fella, I see we've got ourselves some malware on that site so maybe we won't go there.

So yeah that happened, and I don't know for how long it has been happening. I think the only responsible thing to do would be edit the posts and redact the images, but it's going to take a while. So the next most responsible thing, maybe, aside from taking the whole blog down, is to put up a post on the homepage. 

So here we are. 

It's kind of nice to be back, even if the circumstances suck. Sad to lose the images, sorry for the inconvenience. Stay safe out there.
