  1. Ditto - just hangs on login screen. I do show that Linden posted a new status at 7:05 PST: "We are aware many users are still experiencing intermittent log in issues, and our engineers are working towards recovery as quickly as they can."
  2. I came in during SL's high watermark in 2007 and was quickly hooked despite the steep learning curve. The first few years I was totally addicted (hours a day) but my interest started waning in 2010 and pretty much went into semi-active check-in status up until this year when I decided to binge a bit.
