“When I was your age, I didn’t have Internet!”

“Back during my days, there are no such things as Wifi.”

“When I was your age, if I wanted Internet, I had to disconnect my phone, mess around with cables, connect the phone cable to the modem, dial-up the modem, and if I want to look up a page about Backstreet Boys, it takes 5 hours to load the first page.”

“Back during my days, we didn’t have Internet at home. If I wanted to use the Internet, I have to go to a Netcafe!”

If you remember Netscape and Dialups, you are officially an elderly citizen as far as kids nowadays are concerned. Bonus points if you can remember how DialUp sounds like. How about I refresh your memory?

This post is overdue. I wanted to post it during the weekend, but last weekend was close to being my Apocalypse. SL was borked, Plurk was down and then my Internet was down. I have never felt such intense much First World Devastation in my entire life!

Anyway, let me brag for a bit here. This build I’m using is the Garage Shop from Mugen. Mugen is a new brand, though it is not new-ish. Xero decided to rebrand his store from XTC (no, not the other XTC) into Mugen and one of Mugen’s first offering is…a prefab. WOAH.

I am rather proud of this prefab for a lot of reasons, haha. But the main thing being that it is great to see how a friend progress from making furniture to a full blown prefab. It’s on the smaller size so it’s perfect for a small store or a cafe and ONLY 12 land impact. Xero made it in a way that user can retexture easily, though I didn’t do it because I like to blog things with their natural colour (translation: I’m not the best when it comes to texturing walls).

It is now out at Mugen’s store and you can find the demo here. 😀

It’s getting more and more difficult to end a post without being abrupt nowadays, so I shall leave you with a trailing pause…
