  1. Here's more info on the whole thing https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/g5gyms/midwest_internet_outage/
  2. Yes, there does need to be a whole lot less people scamming others, but that isn't what I focused on in that particular bit. Thank you for attempting to 'fix' what I said, you didn't need to.
  3. -Any- store that does this would quickly lose business. There are a lot of people out there on rural connections, slow/high ping connections and it can take a long time and multiple logins to load the entire store (And all their decorations!) on a good day. I have been on a rural DSL connection (Try less than 2MB DL on for size) for the last two years and lemme tell you, how frustrating it is to have to stand there, waiting for stuff to load and then get griped at by a fellow customer because you've been standing there too long. That particular scenario has never happened to me personally, but I see it all the time in groups, impatient people complaining about people 'standing around, afk' while shopping in a large/busy store or events and how they should be tossed out after 10, 15, 20 minutes. An individual has no idea if another is cam shopping or anxiously waiting for things to load and it's nigh indistinguishable from being 'afk'. It's part of the reason I wait until any and all events have cleared out of their busy times (usually a week or more) because it's just that much more difficult to load a region with that many people (even with show friends only, because each connection) or even to fight the mass of people trying to TP in. It just isn't fun. Any store that banned people based on window shopping/their opinion of 'spending too much time (wat?)' at said store would lose my business, my partner's business and potential business of friends, because why should I waste 30+ minutes of my time trying to get their decorated store to load when they obviously don't value my linden. There really needs to be a whole lot less impatient people in the world.
  4. I miss living somewhere that had the food diversity that I grew up with. I'm currently stuck in the middle of 'white bread America' and it's literally as exciting as that. There were a couple of places that pop up every now and then, but never stick around for long because what the demographic finds as good food here in this area doesn't consider flavorful food as -good-. Or something. I can't even begin to guess why they'd choose the 'Asian-American' oversauced with teriyaki flavoring to the real thing. (There is about 6 different 'Chinese buffets' within an hour drive every direction though :/) The Ethnic section in the haphazard grocery stores isn't even big enough to shake a stick at. That said, there is this tiny Vietnamese restaurant about an hours drive away from me that we try to get to once a week. (For some reason an hour rural drive is a lot longer than an hour in the city?) The best noodles and Pho on the planet. I'm afraid it's going to go under soon and then I'll be left with nothing but my own cooking again. I'm not a bad cook, but I can't hold a candle to real Ethnic foods.
  5. -No you can't remove your brows, they're painted on. -You'll have to replace your teeth with the ones in the box. -Your nipples are poking through your shirt. -Did my hair come off again? -My clothes are right there, what do you mean I'm naked? -No, your brows aren't gone forever, you just need to put the eyeshadow on a different face. -If you want to smile, you have to buy the expression.

  7. I made it in! Sweet, sweet ocean sounds. Seems it's beginning to connect again slowly. https://gyazo.com/2ba562ab1595c0fa8ca1fc3c7ad42891
  8. I have had a couple of friends able to log in. They're on east coast mostly. I still can't get in (midwest)
  9. Might want to keep an eye on the Status page. https://status.secondlifegrid.net/
  10. I'm sure that it's been said somewhere, but I'm not quite awake enough yet to have cognitively read every post. Please, furniture creators, quit using ancient animations and charging a premium for your furniture. Getting a nice looking couch, sitting on it and having my hip twist inside my body is not what I like to see after I spent a mint. And if it's no mod? I'm not buying anything of that product, ever again. If I have to rebuild the animations myself out of stuff that I already have, (Thanks AVSitter!) I better not be paying premium for a prop I put together myself.
  11. When I first discovered SL, I was lost for a week inside a newbie college. I quit and about 4 months later I had a car accident that very nearly killed me. In a frustration born of the inability to move, a fear of driving (I love to drive, so this was horrible) and feeling absolutely isolated, I dug my account back up and decided to actually look at it. I found freedom, and the ability to smile again despite everything that was happening to me in first life. Nearly a year after my accident, I met this crazy, goofy person and we instantly became best friends and nearly inseparable. Everything felt better with this person around and they were with me through every obstacle I had to overcome and a few curveballs that life was giving me as well. I'd never opened up to anyone like I did this person. So, several months after we met, I drove 12 and a half hours (Yes! You have no idea how terrifying that was) to meet them in person. We spent a fantastic two weeks together and a year later, I moved up here because I couldn't see myself being anywhere else but next to this amazing person who had the ability to make me smile despite everything. Who sat beside me in the dark and held me, didn't judge, and cried with me. We're going to be celebrating our 7th year together this November. We don't even know when our friendship became this bond, so we celebrate the day we met, because every day together is confirmation that good things do come from a determination to at least smile if you can't do anything else. Yes, Second life has vastly improved my life. It's still hard, I have bad days, we live paycheck to paycheck but we're happy, because we're together. And things will continue to get better.
