Well, I spent the morning before Little Loner woke up walking around Orientation Island on Second Life, completing tutorials, and happily taking snapshots. Well, snapshots are disabled on Orientation Island, and I was too sleepy to notice, so there went my morning.
Still, thanks to the screenshot utility in Ubuntu Linux, I can show you how to log in to SL, and the first four tutorials on Orientation Island – the required ones.
Again, if you’re not interested in Second Life and/or think it’s a waste of time, don’t bother telling us – this diary is a response to requests for help from the community having trouble with Second Life, so I’m not going to bother trying to sell it.
Oh, and lots of pictures below the flip. You have been warned.
Join me below the flip for links and what your first login to Second Life will look like.

Yes, God help you, I’ve decided to chime in on the “civility” debate.
Apparently, as far as I can tell with sleep deprivation, being behind on my online projects, and having a small child climbing on me since 7 AM, the problem is that we don’t say “fuck you” to each other enough.
Therefore, I offer this handy essay, by which any of our members can pass along the requisite “fuck you”s to any of our other members without having to actually type “fuck you” themselves. Civility and lively disagreement are maintained.
That said, let’s get to the fucking.

When I offered the community the option of having in-world tutorials for Second Life, or a howto diary, the community overwhelmingly chose howto diaries.
Notice I snuck in a plural there – due to screenshots this is going to be a series. But, I will be making this as thorough as possible so that everyone will be able to join the growing Daily Kos community in Second Life.
I won’t bother to try to sell Second Life here, and if you’re not interested or think it’s pointless, don’t bother commenting to that effect – this diary is help for people who have shown an interest.
That said, join me over the flip, and I’ll introduce you to Kossack Fullstop.
Oh, and lots of screenshots, so be warned.
