I have changed my Blog Title

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on October 3, 2009

Seeing how Linden Lab has requested a highly respected website (See:  to change their name because of their use of the copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise not-to-be-used-by-anyone-for-any-reason word, two-word-phrase, or image, I am taking a preemptive step to forestall the wrath of the almighty.

I never meant any infringement.

I actually like Second Life.

I just think that now is the time to begin thinking of them as less than the premier virtual world and stating this in my blog. If I happen to raise their ire… well, so be it.

It is simply beginning to look like they have a sour attitude towards their own customers.  Some of their actions are driving a wedge between them and their clients that send them real currency every month to pay the electric bills and salaries of their employees.

Give me your thoughts please.

The Absence of Ethos

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on September 7, 2009

It’s been a while.

In my real life, you know, the one that puts food on the table and keeps the wolves away from my door, I have started working again. This is such a happy thought. Ethos does not typically discuss Real Life here, but many of my on-line friends in SL know how long I have been searching for work.

After a few more weeks of certification training, I will have time for more in-depth work/play in my Second Life and some new things on this blog.

Enjoy your Second Life,

Working on Videos

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on April 10, 2009

Nothing to show this time.

Just more attempts to find the best way to capture, store, and process the video from Second Life to then upload to YouTube so that I can then link to them from this blogsite.

I am trying to do HD widescreen, but it is not working out yet.  I am sure it will come together soon.

I am also hoping that you will all be able to enjoy the HD videos that I am able to capture in SL.

You can see all of Ethos Erlanger’s YouTube Videos even if they are not yet linked to an individual post on this blog.  Or, you may copy/paste this URL into you browser:
