I find it not so easy to make friends on SL. By friends I mean more than acquaintences. Some people are befriending you to add to their invite list because they DJ or host at a club. I had one person befriend me because she saw me as some kind of project that needed fixing :(. She proved to be no friend at all. I have no time or patience for "fake friends" but it seems to be the norm here in SL. Too many people treat others in SL as if they are disposable.
I am experiencing lag on Second Life like never before. I have not changed anything on my laptop. I have set graphics to LOW, and lowered field of vision to 64 ft, 512bits. Some sims are not as laggy as others but eventually my laptop will crash and I get the spinning circle of death! So it CTRL ALT DELETE, close application, Log back in, over and over again. Not too happy with this. Peter115
