    Second Life

    Does anybody participate in Second Life? The name of my avatar is Near Back.

    For those that have no idea what I am referring to, Second Life is an online virtual world.

    I don't have the time to do a first life correctly, who has time for a second life?

    Re: Second Life

    I've heard of it, and I guess there's quite a bit of people who make a living off this virtual world. I can't get into it enough to get any use out of it. :)

    Re: Second Life

    Until I read about the 'sex code' lawsuit on MSNBC, I had never heard of Second Life. What exactly does one do in Second Life?

    Re: Second Life

    Just made a name called Hiwatha Rowlands.

    As close a name I could get to my favorite Iowa State player ever.

    Re: Second Life

    I tried it earlier in the summer, just to see what all the hubbub was about. Now, I'm no stranger to MMOs, but I really didn't see the attraction. I thought it was unentertaining, difficult to control, and just generally pointless.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I think it's more meant to be a virtual, 3D chat room. It's no World of WarCraft, but there are a lot of people out there who like to chat with others while customizing their environment.

    Does anyone remember The Palace? I think it was big in '96 or '97.

    There are quite a large number of users that engage in this activity so these people apparently consider it to be entertaining. For most online games you will find people that consider them to be the highpoints of their week while others can't find anything entertaining or worth while about them.

    I never said I expected it to be comparable to Warcraft. I know it's not an RPG; it's just an MMO application. And yes, lots of people obviously like it. Nevertheless, I still found it boring and difficult to use.

    Re: Second Life

    You know, maybe if you weren't in Alaska, you wouldn't need a Second Life to communicate with people

    I kid, I kid, but I've never really understood this type of app myself, either.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
