It's interesting but not surprising that no-one's suggested marketing Third Life to this demographic. I have seen a rumour that SL2 will be Sanitised Life, a family-friendly upgrade of SL with Club Penguin overtones. Father "In fact, I started that rumour" Jim

It's a statement about who one is, a way of defining oneself. And what if one wants to define oneself as an amoral, plagiarising anti-establishment activist? And how do you stand on using appropriately referenced quotations? Academically sound, but unoriginal? And remember, stealing from one source is plagiarism; stealing from many is research. Father "Who was the most famous plagiarist ever? Martin Luther King!" Jim

I'm awared this was a planned slip of the tongue or "official" announcement if you will. It's just a shame they hadn't let Peter Grey know, so he could have prepared some damage limitation material. Or even some prepared answers other than "We're not ready to talk about this yet". Father "It's funny how those attending that discussion have suggested that it didn't seem intentional

They have actually aid they will shut it down as soon as it becomes unprofitable. Which is likely to be sooner rather than later as the SL economy shrinks. As users gradually work out that they are buying stuff which will be useless in SL2. They are already taking steps to keep it profitable by considerably reducing the number of developers working on it. Father "which means that even less will get done o

And also how to do all of the things SL cant do now but can do in the Betterworld, but Better also then Wolkenreiter gave an example: maybe in the betterworld the avatar is graphically better (speed wise) and artistically better in terms of looks and also better operationally and modally. So the avatar runs/renders as well on a tablet as it
  10. Even more than Medhue, you should stick to your knitting, Granny Jane. Your economy was a disaster even before the banking crisis. Father "and like SL, it's just about to crash" Jim

I remember you from those classes. I do hope the acne has cleared up. I've since gone on to a quite successful career and life.

That's only worth about 50 cent to me. I might actually go get the Surface Pro 3 tho. Given your apparent propensity to back obvious losers, please don't offer me any racing tips.
