And just as quickly, he vanished.
He told me he had some extra time and was looking for something to do. I suggested he give Second Life another try. This was his responce, reposted with his permission:
Sorry but Hell has a better chance of freezing over, thawing out, and refreezing again before I will ever play Second Life again. Linden Labs pissed me off that bad with how they acted regarding screwing up a paid account I had and then telling me it was my fault. It took them over a year to even admit that they messed up before even contacting me about it and that was only because the BBB [Better Business Bureau] had them listed as a disreputal[sic] business. I am still waiting two years later for a promised refund from them. Before I will ever install anything made by that company again on any computer I own, I will require a lobotomy and my gentaila[sic] nailed to a table with railroad spikes.
Great job, Linden Labs.
