    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have to admit i don´t know that many virtual worlds

    Riddle Sideways: never did much "The Sims" online version
    Riddle Sideways: I like OpenSim
    Darren Islar: can you build there and using textures in the same way as in sl?
    Adams Rubble: One has to be careful stretching ones hair in OpenSim
    Adams Rubble: there is no limit like in SL and the hair can get as big as a house

    Adams Rubble: how does the viewer lose clothing?
    Darren Islar: I don't know
    Darren Islar: and to everyone it is something different
    Darren Islar: when I went back to emerald
    Darren Islar: and changed there
    Riddle Sideways: I lost some friends :(
    Darren Islar: I had the same problem again
    Adams Rubble: oh wow
    Darren Islar: no I didn't loose friends, I think
    Adams Rubble: I am glad I am slow to switch
    Darren Islar: well, if you do, make sure you rezz in a place where nobodyis around
    Adams Rubble: hehe. OK
    Adams Rubble: are there any advantages to the new viewer?

    Darren Islar: np
    Riddle Sideways: my UPS went
    There was so much more I was planning to chat about Dick Tracy's wrist-radio TV.
    I have been thinking about how some personal electronics took off and some died.
    It had to do with their paradigm fitting into normal everyday life.
    I did not want to carry 5 extra devices, but did want my tunes, a phone, a calculator, clock, calendar.
    However, now I have one device that does all that and more.  .

    Adams Rubble: I thought you had been paged by Dick tracy :)
    Darren Islar: :-)
    Riddle Sideways: forgot and spoke the secret exit code
