Second Life, shiny, but ...
I finally logged into Second Life for the first time today. (My name there is "Zot Nephilim".)

I was amused to discover the following:
  1. you can take off all your clothes with a single menu operation
  2. putting them all back on again is far more complex
  3. the first two structures I randomly wandered into were casinos
  4. the first billboard I read was for sexy bodysculting
  5. the second was for an escort service
  6. the first person to actually say hello to me, was a prostitute.


Welcome to the Metaverse...

Aw too bad.

welcome indeed.
Helix Lycia there, and I can some times be found.
I typically hang out in sims that are other than the "adult content" land. There is much more there, but most of the inhabitants have to go through that phase.

I didn't mean to go to the "adults only areas", at least not right away. I merely found the menu entry to teleport me "home", expecting it to send me to a "welcome newbie" sort of environment. That's not what I got...

stpdfool was joking a few months ago about quitting his job to write code for 2L objects for a living. He just finally quit the job, so I asked him if he was going to do it, and he said that apparently the main thing worth writing to sell is fursuits. I guess he doesn't want to code fursuits... *shrug*

Furries, moreso than other fen, have more money than sense.

It's not that they have more money, just less sense.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

Deronimo Dahlgren on second life

I usually do not venture into adult only areas. Get outside of there and things can tame down a lot.

Computer Gaming World had a really good article a number of months ago on Second Life and Virtual prostitution.

The article was a shock to me. Not because of the fact that people paid real money for TinySex, (There, I just dated myself with that term) but that there were Human players, because for the longest time, the only news I heard about Second Life was from Furries, who made it sound like it was an all Furry game.

Fortunately, It's not dial-up friendly.3

Not only is it not dial-up friendly, it requires a close to the state of the art 3d graphics card and associated games-class computer.
