This is just a quick test. I indexed 600+ dance animations in OpenSim, and made them searchable on the web server. This one just returns a random search match, and sets your avatar dancing. Eventually we’ll have a really nice club board and you can have lists of your favorite dances.. A list of matches for “Disco” or whatever you are searching for.. And have it in a wiki type format where people can help describe the dances better, and add single word search tags like sexy, slow, hiphop, rock etc…

At this time. This only will work on Nani OpenSim. The standard one will not allow UUID’s to be used in place of animation names. A fairly easy patch may be available soon for other OpenSim versions.

Once fully operational, the installation is expected to generate $2,000,000 worth of renewable energy capacity over twenty years, based on “an average of 1,100 megawatt hours of energy per year, enough electricity to power up to 150 homes.

Bray’s Place – Second Life
Bray’s Place – Second Life avatar

My favorite place in SL. Bray’s is a wonderful Blues Club, and residential island. Bray operates it in a very community minded, and community supported way. It is a wonderful place to hang out, dance, listen to great DJ’s and find a cute little home, if you are in the market. Lots of beautiful places to explore, and really friendly, laidback people. It’s a rare little enclave in SL that is not commercial and irritating. 🙂
