Phone line installed on solipCISM

You can now reach Khoisan by telephone in solipCISM.  Students and others have always been able to see whether or not I’m online, but unless they’ve been on my Contacts list they’ve had no direct way of contacting me when online.

To address this inconvenience, I googled a telephone box image, built a telephone box, and put in a modified version of Kristy Fanshaw’s online indicator script that will not only show that I’m online but will also allow people to IM me in-world.  Kiosks will be placed at each of the main buildings.

I foresee as a future development the inclusion of a telephone directory in the box enabling callers to reach any lecturing staff online … but that will be for another day.

Find Kristy Fanshaw’s script here:
