Ok, at first I really didn't get it. The whole Second Life thing that is. I didn't really see the point of it. But since opening my account a few weeks ago I'm afraid Second Life may be my new drug of choice.
So much so that I upgraded my account to premium. What this allows you to do is two things really. One, own land and two, you get 300 Lindens, Second Life's unit of money a week. To be quite honest I'm not sure how I feel about trading real dollars for virtual Lindens. Actually thats not true. I'm pretty sure how I feel about it, but hey, its only money. Right?
