FIC

I was directed to a list the other day called the FIC.  I had a look at the names and thought I don't really know many of them but what a great bunch the ones I do know.  And I am on that list! someone must think highly of me for some reason.  So what does the FIC mean you ask?.  I had been hoping it meant Friendly Inner Child or something.  Actually it stands for Fetid Inner Core.  I thought to myself that Fetid is not a word you strive to be associated with.  [fet-id, fee-tid]  Show IPA
–adjective
having an offensive odor; stinking.
Ouch.  I am part of a stinky inner core of something.  Oh well not everyone is going to like you.  The thing is that I am not really offended as I respect many of the people on this list.  Granted I don't know  most of them.  Also it's kind of refreshing for someone to not tip toe around being nice.  The person who made the list is named Prokovsky Neva and I would love to see a feud start up between him/her and Saveme Oh.  A kind of pay-per-view thing. " SAVEME OH vs PROK! - the reconing"  Something like that.  Not sure who I would place my money on there.   For fun I have decided to put a little point form summary of what I do know of some people on this list.  If you would like to go read the original article it is here.  If i put "don't know" beside someones name it doesn't mean they don't do great or terrible stuff  it just shows how much of a hermit I am.  If you have more info on what these people do then feel free to post in the comments.

Torley Linden - how can anyone not like Torley?  I saw a video of him making music once and he just seemed so happy and enthusiastic about it.

Hamlet Au- Hamlet was originally an employee of Linden Labs and now has the popular site New World Notes.  He seems like a nice guy to me, definately a very hard worker.  Posts everyday for years now, and has done some big interviews with people such as Cory Doctorow and others.  Also wrote a book on SL which have seen in a Chapters/Indigo bookstore by me. (Indigo=giant big box bookstore)

Crap Mariner - Crap is a really nice guy too.  He has a blog and does tons for the music scene in Second Life.  Really funny too.
Jumpman Lane - I met Jumpman once and in the process of checking his profile I discovered he was some kind of SL porn king. 
Soft Linden- don't know

RightasRain Rimbaud - RAR is the head of Rezzable creations who I have done a few projects for.  One one side it was great to have a company that actually paid artists to create.  They paid good rates too.  On the other side they had a bad reputation for not paying artists and my old friend Spiral Walcher was very bitter towards them I recall.  They did pay me for my projects but one time it took ages to get paid.  I also have a 10 thousand prim build where I placed each part individually on their private sim.  It's called Crosshatch.  Part of the contract was I would get this builder buddy they developed so that I could copy entire sims I have created.  So for example I could copy my entire Standby sim at IBM with the click of a button.  They gave me a broken version and this Foolish Frost person made no attempt to help me with it.  Also I tried to get there to make a copy of the build using Imprudence viewer and lost my ability to log on to the sim.  I asked for help and again nothing.  So essentially I have no copy of my build.  That's my story about RAR.
