Second Life

This section of Astroblahhh.Com contains stuff related to the massive multiplayer online virtual world game Second Life, which can be joined and played for free. (Though you might not be able to use it unless you have a broadband internet connection and a fast-enough computer with an adequate graphics card).

Second Life is an immersive 3D world, in which you can actually build, program, and even sell your own totally customizable objects. Second Life has a virtual currency called the L$ (Linden dollar) which can be exchanged for real money.

Since there are no fees taken out of any transactions within Second Life (there are only fees when you exchange your L$ for real currency), that makes Second Life one of the only feasible ways I know of to collect microdonations via the internet, and a better payment method than PayPal.

As of 1/4/2011, I find the newest official Second Life viewer to have a really terrible, confusing interface in comparison to the old versions, and search doesn't work anywhere near as well.

Thank goodness, it's still possible to use an old official Second Life viewer - Version 1.23, which can be downloaded at Second Life's official wiki:

This section of my site might someday feature many more things. For now, though, there's not much here.
