  • ESMS_controlled

    Landed at ESMS Sturup. Delivering passengers and cargo

    Finally after a lot of training I wanted to do my first flight in controlled airspace. And of course a lot of things went wrong. The new soundcard was acting up. My Widewiew computer died on me and and I had some strange winds on landing so I was going all over the place. But thanks to a nice Sweden_control with some patience I actually made all of the flight.


    I had a lot of fun!


    It is so much more fun to fly the skies with a lot of other pilots and controllers working to make it a fun experience. I think it was ok. When observing I have seen a lot of pilots worse than me and I cant wait to go again.

  • ESGG

    Finally I made a good landing following RISMA 1S down.

    Not perfect but it feels like I am finally getting somewhere. But I have had some more tech problems. Yesterday I had to go to text to talk to ESSA_APR, that was not so good. Having both control and engine sound in the headphones did not work so good so I have put in a second sound card. I really need to hear the engine sound in the background. It is a important key for me to know that I am not doing stupid things and get a stall or overspeed. Now I just hope that the sound system will work. It did not crash the computer. That’s a +1.



    Todays flight was good ESGG is medium sized airport so maybe it is time for Stockholm/Arlanda now the biggest airport in Sweden. But I have to download the maps. I have also spent a few Euros on Navigraph for the latest STAR and SIDS for my FMS. That are well spent money.



    Thinking of buying a jet. But maybe I need a few more pilot hours for that.

  • ESSBland

    Today was my first flight in a while. I have had a terrible cold so I have been grounded. But today I wanted to get back on flight deck. Very nice weather so a good day to brush up on my knowledge. It was a nice flight. Leaving Visby went very well after some trouble with my second wideview computer. But it was not so technical, my maps was on the keyboard so for once it was easy to fix.



    You really have to fly all the time to not lose your skills. It is that difficult. On finals on R30 I was checking my speed carefully, (have had some speed problems) but I came in to fast anyway. It is a long runway so no real problem but I did not set my ATR down where I wanted to. So need more flight hours.



    But of course. If it would be easy the it would be no fun. Always room for perfection.

  • I have started work on a new menswear collection for Second life. I think that men should have the opportunity to have a nice stylish wardrobe.


    I think i will call it the Ipad collection because i do the sketches on my Ipad. Really need a better tool for making fashion in SL.


    I have too dream something up.




  • From here i can connect to the web, servers, virtual worlds and Second life. And i got a new chair that do not kill my back. It is not a glamours life but it is my choice. ( I have been playing the latest Deus ex right thru for the last days so maybe it is ok).

    Thinking of a web cam. It would be nice to se some people once in a while. 

    This afternoon i will start the work on my Second life fashion company. Finally got some time for it. Going to be FUN. :)

  • Keswick my old house

    It is still there after all these years. Not many of my early builds are still around but to my surprise this one is still standing. It is a cool house from my learning days. It still looks good.

  • lendoniagate

    Started working on Lendonia again. Now with Opensim 0.7.5 and Bullet physics. Tried some airplane script that not really worked but that could be tweaking so I have good hope for the future. It looked good.

    9 sims are a little bit to much to build so I am toying with the idea to just release it as it is.

    When I got tired of Lendonia I worked some on the winter and ski sim. A broken net card have put this work in the background but after a change it is up and running again.


    First pic of the new build. Wintersim.

    I hope Bulletsim makes it possible to do skis. I would really like that.

  • Last year i started building an new server.

    Now it is ready and it is working. But now i think about optimization.

    My first thought was to use the RaspberryPI . But after some reading I found that it is really not up to run Opensim. I checked out cheap motherboards with processors. You can get them almost as cheap as a RaspberryPI.

    Finally I got some old AMD 64bit motherboards and started building. OpenSUSE 12.2 and some switches and solder in some cool switches. It is noisy but it works. 

    Now i want to se if i can build a very small Linux in OpenSUSE studio and run it under XEN. I also want to use MariaDB insteed of MySQL.

    Right now it runs a grid of 4 islands and i run the rest on some new workstations. I want all of my developer grid island on the server. Next step must be some kind of server that optimize the network connections and it is not very good as it draws to much power. Not green at all.

    If i can push down the cost for a sim to 100$ a Opensim grid starts to be good economics.

    I need some extra software as i also use it as a renderfarm for 3D pictures but disk space is cheap these days.
    As always the work continues.

    Oh yes. I have solved my back problem with a new super chair.

  • Right now i am testing a new tool for doing 3D pictures. DAZ Studio 4.5 . I am not that fond of the renderer but i have found several others on the net that i can use with some tweeking.



    The user interface is nice and you have thrre to select. One is very user friendly if you are just starting out with 3D images. You get some assets to start experimenting with and best of all it is free.


    Go over to and check it out.


  • Digital art gallery

    When i explore Second life around i find galleryś with digital art everywhere. Photography made in SL. Sculptures made for SL. All kind of digital art. It is a explosion of this so before limited art form. And many pieces are very good , too.

    I wonder if the art world outside of SL have any idea of what is going on?

  • There is a lot of different gallerys in Second life. Very big ones with many paintings and some good art. And the small ones often run by the artist with a few pictures or sculptures.

    In the big ones you get a big dose of all the culture you could want.

    Crossworlds gallery


    Crossworlds gallery

    But I rally prefer walking around in a city block finding small gallerys and designers or maybe a strange store or two.

  • I have been to art exhibitions and party´s for some time now. One of the things I do is to read peoples profiles and I have noticed that almost everybody logged in are three years old or more.

    No more newbies. So I expect the flow of new inhabitants in Second life have stopped. Today Second life is a mature product and the people in world are those who have found the extra life awarding in some way. When all you meet are avatars that are several years old maybe its time for Linden lab to concentrate there efforts on the inhabitants that really stay year after year and not just trying to get new people to join Second life. It´s obvious to me that virtual worlds is not for everyone and that very few people enjoy them. But I have also found a upside for virtual world.

    I am a crazy online player and I try out all new online games. And the one I play the most is of course World of warcraft. So why are Wow and EVE online so successful and the others have to go free to play in a year or so? Both in Wow and Eve you can do other things than follow the story line. You can go fishing or exploring or just talk to friends. The others are just games. You might as well take away the online and just play them as single player.

    Social is the buzz word. And Second life is more social than all of the others together. Maybe there is only a market for a million people or so world wide and maybe it´s time for Linden lab to really take care of the players and not focus on getting newbies.

  • I have several avatars in different worlds. Some of them are only avatars and some are connected to my real life identity. I find that the avas that have there own identity works better than when people actually knows who's behind the avatar. I think when people goes into a world like Second life they do not want to know who the other avatars real identity is. The illusion of the avatar is more important. I wonder if this will change or still work in the future. I know who many of my Second life friends are in real life and for me I think that ads to my different friendships but of course if you do SL for virtual sex you probably do not want to know your partners real life identity.
    Imagination is really powerful.

And the background sound is so nice. Vawes. I just have to visit all of them. I think there is a new sl photo project in there. "Marinas of Blake sea". From cyberserenity Vella via

    A lot of nice SL art. It just proves that you can do good art with SL and some graphics editing software. In many ways this is a break through for virtual art- Its possible to produce a lot of it. And a big production secures a few really great pieces. Of course the art world in RL do not understand it. But we do dont we? From cyberserenity Vella via

There is always a channel that play something i like. RL radio is only ads and djs that love their own voice.. I WANT MUSIC! From cyberserenity Vella via

  • newrender

    Makes some imaginative pictures. Maybe i can find some use for it.

    The name is Art of illusion and it looks like it.

    i have followed Gracie Kendal for many years now. A fine artist and i think that SL only improve her work because she is just getting better and better. The colors and shapes getting more firm and and it all fits together better and better. Makes me happy. From cyberserenity Vella via

  • I have made a few things with scupted prims before. But now i am trying to dig deeper. I made a few things today to see what possibilities i can find.


    To the left is sculptyman. The tools to create sculpties are kind of limited.

    No full 3D editors , and Second life destroy the finished product when you upload.

    But its ok anyway.


    There are great ways to use sculpties in buildings and furniture.




    A nice chair and now i have to create some animations for it.

  • In SL you find stuff.

  • slbloodlines

    I have really tried to stay out of  slbloodlines but its fun and something to do in SL. So i am really thinking of the vampire thing. Its hard to find the time WoW is really going good now. I need more time. Have to stop working. There is no other way.

  • Just no news

    From my mobile phone.

  • And i just had to make a Second life book about the gallery build. Could not miss that. In world you can find it in my store at Epimetheus. Both the book and the gallery looks fine. Its nice to have virtual babys in world.
  • Todays work was to do some competition designing on Dreams/shockproof. Everybody makes very nice beautiful stuff so i decided to do something completely different. A kind of waisted landscape. Broken down world, but with a waterfall as that is the competition theme. And i wanted some particle extras. And it looks good at least right now.
  • So finally i have the Asgard gallery building in Second life ready. Go and see it. And see the art inside. Its a treat.
    I am continuing too build more places in SL for the gallery community. Its fun.
    The web site got a few new pages and its now incorporated with my old web site.
    I have problems getting the help forum up anybody have a database expert free. Anyway just working on.
  • There are a few people out there thats interested in what we do and how our projects proceed.

    And now i am writing at to many places so i thought it was better to keep one blog for both art projects and the 2worlds2go company because the work is really similar.

    So right now the development in second life are moving along good. The new gallery and the machina studio vill be up soon.
    And i have designed a new gallery. The Asgard gallery. And i hope it will be up and running in a few days. I think Karen wants to get her pictures up really fast.

    I will try to put up new info on this blog insted of our website. It kind of gets to be to much info and the website got to much anyway.

    So the reason to start a blog. I like it.

My work

My work is mostly experimental. I always want to know what happens if you put this thing on this one. Will there be some great art then?

I have worked forever trying to find what art is all about and new media and computers are one of my greatest friends. Hacking art and soceity to find the basic code behind it all. I use  my knowledge of building hardware and writing software to do experiments in digital art and research our lifes and death.


The creation process is the same if you paint or use digital media. My work spans a lot of areas. Sometimes maybe they are to many. After art school i started out as a painter but i quickly got in to computers and the Internet. I still like to work with digital media. Exploring virtual worlds and create art for the web and games. Today i got the Oculus rift that makes it possible to bee in a alternate reality. I think art willl never be the same.

Light test for painting

I do a lot of graphic design for digital media in gaming and virtual worlds. And i love the digital camera. I do not have to work in a smelly darkroom anymore if i do not want to. I do many purely digital pictures in software and as a photographer at the hypergrid. And i also have a gallery there where i can show of my work. It is all net, servers and streaming information.


The road is open.


The work continues.

  • Grid jump to Tranquility Welcome

    After finishing work on the servers and got them going again. Hypergrid up by the way. I had to do a jump.

    Today it is Tranquility Welcome. Never been to this grid before. Found stuff i wanted but don´t know what currency to use. That is annoying.

    But all in all a nice visit.

  • Once more partying in Second life.

    Long time since i where out partying in Second life. But i had really a good time and i where up way to late as the Dj just keept on playing. Second life is still fun. But i have to move again as more and more islands disapper. Well yesterday where all about fun.

  • Euro truck simulator 2, TruckersMP, VorpX, Oculus rift

    Finally I got some of my hardware to work and I have had a fun afternoon honking at trucks while driving slowly in my new car around Scandinavia. The landscape is just beautiful and the roads nice. I will have some coffee and then it is onward to the continent.

    This is so much fun.
