  1. I hate cold coffee. Fidor (This stupid woman is the reason McD's serves even worse coffee now than it did before.)
  2. Is your attention span limited to the first three words in a sentence? Fidor (made it easier for you to concentrate.)
  3. MY.REALLIFE.COM has even more issues. Fidor (I would lik eto swap identities with a younger richer and more beautiful person; can you help me LL?)
  4. Only Second.Life is allowed to troll. Fidor (Damn this English language, I keep mixoing up the meainings of troll and spam.)
  5. I use AdBlockPlus. Fidor (Which works well if you use Firefox.)
  6. I am entertaining myself. These forums are not entertaining Fidor (As hi sname sugegsts is an inhabitant of the feeds.) (With his name changed to protect the guilty.)
  7. It sounds like it's time to change the battery in my pacemaker. What's that you say? Oh yes, the one in my hearing aid too! Fidor
  8. Phil Deakins wrote: When you get past a certain age, you no longer mind dating yourself When you get past a certain age the women are no longer interested in you anyway! Fidor
  9. Sounds like Linden Realms for grown-ups . . . Fidor (Actually I would be dating myself if I admitted to knowing what you were talking about, wouldn't I, Phil?)
  10. Phil Deakins wrote: I think your "domme" got what she deserved this Christmas - outed. I do like Celestiall's post. Ain't it good we got her reinstated. Fidor (Now what can we do about securing Pep's return?) (Or is he happy playing in the feeds for the time being?)

There is more to SL than making a living. Education is an all time high. There is so much that can be done in the conventional world. SecondLife broadens that horizon. I think that with all the social netowrking system, including SecondLife, the economy can move in the direction it should. The Industrial Age was a wonderful experience. Now it is the 21st Century and beyond. We need to focus on this new age...I call "The Global Humanity Age." All the social networking has reached it peak and still growing biger and faster. SecondLife is one of them with a different aspect, 3-D reality. In its wonder, I hope that onter innovations will come forth. As there are different types of ways we socialize online (FaceBook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc.), there can be other innovative ways to share and experience 3-D online activities as we might do in real life but never had the chance. So focus. Make up your mind. It can't be still growing if it's already peaked But . . . but . . . but . . . that is what it said in LL's Marketing Department's briefing paper for this event!

When are you going to come out of your altcave and join us in-world, Botham? I've been searching on you and you haven't shown up yet. You sound interesting, though probably not as interesting as you think you are. You don't think I am stupid enough to compromise the stability and future of my inworld business empire by entrusting it to the capricious nature of a hungover moderator who just got dumped by her girlfriend before being informed she had been scheduled Christmas Day and New Year's Eve shifts? This is, of course, a disposable forum alt. Don't be surprised if you receive overly-familiar invitations from strange men via IM inworld in the near future. Although isn't that what happens all the time?
  14. "Most of the time I want to give you a slap, but occasionally you are mildly amusing" Fidor

Solipcyst wrote: BothamFidor wrote: Surely the answer is the same as for every other company that leads the market with disruptive technology: once they have broken the paradigm (if an analogous one even exists) or stretched the envelope... If SL is a failure in any respect, it's in its ability to provide the disruptive technology you speak of here. Hubris is not reality and if we really were looking for Linden Labs to create a gale of "Creative Destruction" of the kind described by Schumpeter, we've been badly let down. At the most we've been privy to a small squeak of embarrassing flatulence. The pervasive scent of which belies the feeble physical reality of its source. Technological ubiquity is accelerating rapidly to pervade every part of our lives, which I guess by its nature may ultimately realise our personal immersion within some sort of physical/digital continuum. This is all happening elsewhere however, and not in the vacant little gold rush town we know of as Second Life. The galloping hordes have disappeared over the horizon, visible to those left behind only by the cloud of dust blown back towards us on the breeze. I believe that in a few years, the idea that SL was capable of providing the technological epiphany of which you speak will be seen as quaint and amusing, if not downright ridiculous. Hmm, I noted the appearance of your name on the "new members" list and I wondered whether something like this might be forthcoming . . . While I was not disappointed, I hope I am not going to disappoint you, since I am afraid I agree with your post almost in its entirety. I also applaud its presentation. What a shame it will be wasted on most. LL may have had a miniscule window of opportunity, but the blinds came down long ago. Fidor (Oh, and don't tell the LL Marketing Department that it is the 21st Century; we don't want to wake them up!)

  18. Pussycat Catnap wrote: How anyone could have something against people who want gender equality baffles me to no end. it baffles me why they should be fighting an activist campaign in SL where nobody knows your real gender!
  19. Phil Deakins wrote: Apart from anonymously starting a load of silly threads and attempting to fill the front page with junk, what do you do to while away some spare time? Discuss it here. If you continue to criticise Linden Lab for spamming its own forums you will probably get a visit from the authorities, Phil!
  20. Theresa Tennyson wrote: Trying to get others to agree with one's rather exaggerated sense of self-coolness by spamming a lot of snarky threads? Oh wait, that's been done... I wouldn't mind so much if they hadn't stickied their self-serving sentimental slush so the actual interesting stuff disappears below the fold. This is propagandist censorship of the worst kind. RIC the posts and get them unstuck!!!
  21. Congratulations . . . . . . from the other 43, 722 couples whose relationships in SL didn't make it past a month. ETA and any number of partners in rl who don't play SL whose relationships have been wrecked by those cheating in SL.
  22. Eloise Baily wrote: While I'm here, I think a read of the LL asked Question, what are the books and movies that inspired you in Second Life gives a perfect example of the forum tone . . . That thread looks condescending and rude to me. Surely not! (You should not really be criticising the Lindens, you know, even if they do start a bunch of spammy condescending threads.)
  23. Lillie Woodells wrote: Hi there. I've been lurking on this thread and seeing some interesting and valid posts. I wasn't going to respond, but felt compelled because Caroro, you've made some points that touched on something I've been thinking about as well. Maybe you should have remained lurking until you appreciated that it is a courtesy to other posters to get their name right, especially since it is there in black and white for you to copy.
  24. Da5id Zsigmond wrote: I would think that everyone in-world needs to have read "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson. I've always thought it was the inspiration for SL itself. Or maybe it was the stuff that other authors had been writing for the previous decade or so before Stephenson's derivative tome.
