    Profit, well as the dollars slip away funding Sansar, I am not confident that Linden Lab will have much of that in 2018. So if that is the linchpin of SL survival. I better look to Open Grid for my future. I am sick to death of VR talk, headsets, controllers Boys toys, nothing more. All this gets hyped as they think there is money to be made. Climb aboard the train to nowhere. Sl is so much more. Why could Linden Lab not see that! All they needed to do, invest in severs and promote, promote, promote. The ideals and achievements of SL. SL is so much more than flying dicks, Ebbie!

    oooh, like to say I did like the HF talent show, some very cool acts. Looks like the cream that once made SL so wonderful has moved on. Now I feel left behind and sad, oh well.

        well you did look cool most of the time. Was funny to see your knees give way and those arm that look so odd at times. Navigating in SL is so much more real, to me anyhows. Your hair looked good though.
