Interwebz behind a red curtain (._.)

So… Here I am, RL, in China. Immy’s keyboard stabber is travelling on business and spending a couple weeks in Dongguan. It’s been fun and a bit crazy. Gotta love moving around for work. Interwebs in different places have different things. I remember Japan and what seemed like one WAY overloaded web. Viet Nam was quite surprising… webs were wide open, fast, and cheap. Australia was an adventure in monopoly… Then… China. (>_<)

Interwebs here are fast and reliable, but, boy are they locked down! (>_<)

Twitter, Youtube, Metacafe, bits and pieces of Google… Heck, even my own Blogspot site… All blocked. Searches are peppered with broken links. Logging to SL works, but, after a while packet loss starts to skyrocket. Especially if I start clicking links to blocked sites. And, so far, people been wanting to guineapig me by sending every possible blocked link they could imagine. (._.)

Still… What works, works. I’m able to VPN to my work compie in California to post this. I’m totally having fun here and I took a few pikkies. The weather’s all hazy, though. It’s hard to get contrast and detail when everything grey. (>_<)

Anyways, here I am and there you are. I’ll be back in my favorite time zone by the end of the week. It’ll be nice to have my 90% uncensored interwebs access back again. =^-^=

Darkly Cute - Now at the new Unreal Mall! =^-^=

One of my neighbors in the Ferguson sim has put together a cute little mall on an estate sim. Kiki and the others already have shops and booths there and under the suggestion of a good friend, I decided to move in too. (^_^)

It's a really nice place with wonderful and simple textures. Rent is L$100 per week with a cap of 4 weeks rental at a time. I've already gotten some positive attention from the place, so, I'll be sticking around for a while. (^_^)

Check it out here (^_^)y

NEW @ Darkly Cute - Atchi - Unreal Avatar

I totally took advantage of my extended weekend this week. Armed with some free time and my Wacom, I went and painted me an Unreal avatar. =^-^=

Using Ichgigo's freebie head sculpt and a bit of boredom, here we go! Atchi! Xd

The avatar includes a shape, skin, Unreal head, and a pair of my upcoming Unreal eye series. (^_^)

You can find it inside my cookie jar here at Darkly Cute. (^_^)y
