This happened a few months back, but was reminded when iw as organizing some directories on my laptop. I’ve been spending some time recently in Second Life, drumming up events and activities for the NMC Campus — it is insanely curious, interesting, yet hard to quantify what the “there” is “there”, but you feel it there.
The theme was “water” and I tossed in two photos  . This is done by uploading the images (you save them as BMP files to your computer), which cost L$10 per upload, and then dropped them on the profile of the avatar who was running the contest.

Hey, winning is winning, right?
I might go SL shopping now and buy some new bling.
