Virtual Worlds, OpenSim, Grids & Hypergrid

What is a Virtual World?

2016 APL 2016-02-11 Two new publications.

PUBLICATIONS Adding the third would have meant a delay of some days, and I want to keep to a regular schedule. If we can publish something each week, it works better than publishing a lot once every two months. Judith told me after editing this weeks first publication that there were so many letters, that […]

2015 APL 2015-12-08 Three new publications.

First, a beaded rondel. I don’t know the style of the design, but I do rather like it. After obtaining permission from the seller, I put a bid on it (don’t tell on me, please) and it so happened that I won it. But the strange thing is, the ebay photos were much better than […]

2015 APL Two new publications 30-09-2015

Dear me, this is getting to be a very long letter. Does anybody actually read it to the end? PUBLICATIONS This time, we start off with an old and timeworn footstool. The images are a donation of ebay seller jennysfrenchboudoir. Although the embroidery is somewhat damaged, the pattern could be reconstructed easily from those nice […]

2015 APL Three new publications 11-09-2015
