This is my last day spending my Second Life in my Golden Years. It’s been fun though, truth be told, my experience wasn’t that different. A couple of people said I looked cute or that it was refreshing to see, and asked where the avatar is from. Much like my time spent as a furry, there was no harassment or other unpleasant incidents or attitudes.
I hope your time in Second Life has been as pleasant as mine.

One of my teeny tiny pet peeves is when people harp about Second Life being a game. This is often followed by declarations that games should not be taken seriously. Therefore, Second Life should not be taken seriously.
I wrote in another blog that despite certain statistics about the web and other things geek…
- Facebook has 750 million active users and 53% of Facebook users play games
- 65% of U.S. households play video games
- World of Warcraft has 11.1 million subscribers
- 2008 saw eight superhero movies
- The Dark Knight was the highest-grossing film of 2008 worldwide with a total of $1,001,921,825
- About 130,000 people attended San Diego Comic-Con in 2010
…Second Life crosses some kind of nerd line.
Putting the benefits of play, such as learning, teamwork, relaxation, and therapy, aside, there’s a lot more going on in Second Life than playing. I opened the Search and the Destination Guide and decided to check out some other ways in which Second Life is being used.

This is one of those outfits that would not be possible on the old viewer lacking layers and multiple attachments. With all the sales and gifts going on this month, you need those features to wear everything.

Indie Rose is closing and everything in the store has been marked down 50% or more. I picked up a few great pieces like this Vintage 50s Party Dress in Mocca. There are also 25 dollarbie gift packages throughout the store. It’s a lot of the same items in different colors, but all worth snatching up if you’re an Indie Rose fan. Sale ends January 1st.

It took me a long time to snap this photo on the bridge. It’s not often that I get to take snapshots with shadows. Turning them on makes my FPS drop drastically and soon crash. Once I got my outfit together and find a nice spot, I get into position, find a pose and windlight, up my graphics and cross my fingers.
