Spent the rest of yesterday trying to build stuff in Second Life. I had a go at trying to build something that resembled a working piston. Whilst it looks OK when stationary, as soon as it moves it goes all jerky *sulk*. I suspect I'm doing something wrong in the way I'm animating it. Or maybe it's just not possible to animate things like that.

So eventually I gave up and had a play with my dirigible. Oh how I laughed when I accidently fell out of it and couldn't find it for half an hour. Stupid thing floated off and was bouncing around the landscape. Luckily I was getting notices whenever it failed to go into an area it wasn't allowed in to. Although what confuses me, is how it managed to drift off anyway, when I only appeared to be able to move up and down or turn left and right.

Whilst I fully realise it's utterly pointless, I'm tempted to hire it out like a taxi. It'd be a good way to meet folk and earn some much needed cash.
