Deimos!

I consider myself to be "technologically challenged." The extent of my savvy is Googling things. My poor, dear, IMPOSSIBLY patient Mr. Handsomeface only recently had the misfortune of hearing me ask, "Can you walk me through uploading a file to your server?" That's what that was, I think - a server... or a database... or something involving files... and uploading. Yeah. That.

Anyway...

A few months ago, I'd decided that I wanted to watch movies in Second Life. Because... MOVIES IN SL! I used the Consignment movie theater skybox (which is awesome, by the way) and theeeeeen it came time to prop up a working screen. I Googled! I sent a NC to creators/scripters! I begged friends (thanks, Scar)! I begged people to test out MP4s with me (thanks, Koura)! I tried myself! I just couldn't get it quite right.

Enter the Deimos Television Store! I'd had some experience with DVD rentals in SL, and that prompted me to search for TVs in SL. After finding Deimos on the Marketplace, I then visited the store to try the demos. I settled on the Starfire, which is one of four. There's also Eclipse, Luna and SunRay, each priced at 2,999L.

Because I'm also really good at copying and pasting, here's the Marketplace listing verbatim! I made bold my favorite features:

Neat, huh?

Methinks you have lots to play with in the TV, but if you want to play music or video files that are not already inside of the menu - and I did - there's the upload addon. It's super easy to work. You rez the plugin, click it, and you are given the setup process in local chat. I did this part all by myself! CELEBRATE!

What I DIDN'T do, however, is notice that the upload limit is 900MB. The movie I'd been DYING to show other people was 300MB over, and I tried three times to upload it. With my super slow upload speed, each attempt took maybe six hours. It took someone much more observant than me to notice the limit (Thanks, HSW)! Still, that's no count against the product; if you can convert the file to a smaller file type, then go ahead! I have no idea how to do that, but I can tell you it accepts multiple file types.

A word about the customer service: I've repeated several times that I'm terrible with this sort of thing. Morphix, Deimos store owner, has been nothing short of amazing, considering the client. He's answered all 283987598273234 of my questions, and there was never one hint of aggravation/rudeness in his answers. And I don't believe any of them came later than 24 hours after asking the question in the first place.

In short - awesome, complete product(s), awesome customer service, awesome time with friends. I'M SOLD!

Here's a few screenshots of the TV:

(The "tracking!" message is NOT a part of the TV; that's hovertext for a HAIKEI temp-rezzed build, which I am decorating right now for blogging, TYVM!)

AND OH! Don't like the stand? Want to mount the TV? Just click on that stand and kiss it au revoir! To get it back, just click the now-phantom stand (so click right below the TV), and it shall reappear!

Finally, with so much content included with the TV, you're probably wondering about legal stuffs and things? Here's some disclaimers, included in a notecard inside of your purchase:

I know I said I'd post these credits yesterday, but... if I ever AGAIN say I'll do something after working 12 hours, just slap me in the face. Because I've lied.

Ambition is sometimes not enough. Energy counts for something too.

To apologize, here's an awesome song from one of my favorite bands in the world, Beach House:
