Wiki me2.jpg

In the mythical, rumoured, so-called "Real Life", I am disabled with multiple sclerosis, which sadly is getting worse by the month with it seems nothing I can do to stop it. But I don't want to labour on about RL, we all have our crosses to bear and there are people here worse off than me.

As to my skills, I have a few things I can offer :

  • I can speak French (not too brilliantly or fluently, but enough to make myself understood and get by)
  • I can take classes in Second Life
  • I know enough about the wiki to be of help to newcomers to it, though there are many more who, unlike me, are experts
  • I am a reasonably competent writer
  • I understand the basics of Photoshop (please don't ask me about Blending Modes!)
  • I use Apple Mac, so I can talk about that to people who need to know more
  • I can edit items reasonably well (hair is a specialty), though I'm pretty new to actual building / creating
  • I often make people laugh! (enough said ... let's hope they are laughing WITH me lol)
