My Pack, originally uploaded by ßlackie.

This is my pack;
Adolph, Formika, Marianne and Snowhite.

Adolph seems to be a little camera shy today so I didn’t get a shot of him but the one next to the camera is Marianne.

They will be living with me and keeping me canine company at my secret doghouse. They can be a little frightened when they meet new folks, but after a while they’re very warm and friendly.

NCI has daily classes/events held at their locations with times and a schedule routine.
To keep track of classes and attend them there are three choices:

1. Go to one of the NCI locations and look at the big schedule board.

2. Join the New Citizens Inc or the NCI Alumni Association group and get announcements on classes and events (tutorial on this soon to come!)

3. See the classes/events in SEARCH:

Open your SEARCH tool from the bottom of your Second Life viewer.

Go to the EVENTS tab.

Type ‘NCI’ in the searching field and hit ENTER.

Find the class you want to attend and click on “Notify” to be notified 5 minutes before class and get a teleport to the classroom.

If you are looking for NCI events specificly or NCI classes specificly, just type in the searching field ‘NCI Class’ or for events ‘NCI Event’.

(This is an unofficial tutorial for finding NCI classes—made for faster and easier directions for new residents)

[TUTOR] How to open a Link

This tutorial will explain to you how to open a link in Second Life that is not a clickable URL. You can most likely see a link in someone’s profile (where you cannot use HTML or the normal <a href= thing), or from chat text—both are total difference, but will be explained here.

First we will start with viewing it from public chat. Unlike IM, public chat on screen is NOT clickable, this means you cannot just *click* the URL to open it…
You need to:

1. Click on LOCAL CHAT at the bottom of your Second Life viewer.

2. Click the purple-colored link.

3. Wait for your browser to open and load.

-That’s it! Simple, ain’t it? Well, this one is a little bit more tricky…

Now I will explain how to open a link from an un-openable/clickable place, such as someone’s profile.
Like me, some people like putting MORE links in their profile than just the WEB tab, so the other sections of the profile seems like the perfect place—And it is. :)
Here is how to open it:

1. Open the person’s profile (right-click on avatar > PROFILE -or- SEARCH > PEOPLE).

2. Hold your left mouse-button and select and highlight the Link/URL.

3. Press CTRL+C (Control key and C letter) on your keyboard.

4. Open your browser.

5. Press CTRL+V (Control key and V letter) on your keyboard to paste the URL. Or, right-click on the URL bar and choose from the menu PASTE.

6. Hit ENTER for it to load.

There you have it! :D
