I don't think the Lindens have any pity . I don't understand why I, under circumstances beyond my control(my old computer died and I had to get a cheap laptop to do my work until I could save up for a better one), now have to suffer for not being able to play SL to get the bear avatar that is ABSOLUTELY EXACTLY PERFECTLY what I've been looking for for THREE years. I've actually asked people around if they knew a good bear avatar and they said no.
I have been looking for a good bear avatar in SL for YEARS. Last year, I was unable to play SL for several months because my computer wasn't up to snuff. Recently, I went looking for a bear avatar again and tried google images and found out about the SL10B Bear Avatar. It said it was only available untill June 30th :(. I've checked the marketplace and other places in SL to no avail. Please tell me I can get it somewhere else.
