  2. People in Active Worlds were talking about the new upcoming virtual world (SL) where the graphics would put AW's graphics to shame. That was around 1999/2000. Then illume passed and the memorial was held in SL, the SO saw the graphics I'd tried to keep him from seeing (because I knew!), and I've been stuck with it ever since. Tried going back to AW a couple of times but it just wasn't good enough any more.

  10. For many (most?) people, the more hoops they have to jump through to log in, the less likely they are to log in. Then there are those who don't log in from anywhere but home, although possibly on different devices depending on what room they are in. Account security isn't something that should be charged for, it's part of the whole. Personally, as long as it is opt in, I'm ok with it. If they ever make it mandatory, that is a different story.
  11. I never got that either. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hair
