A of last Monday, I'm finally back on Second Life. I ended up buying my own memory, which was only $40. I thought it was going to be $150, or I would have done it 6 months ago. I got my new avatar situated with a decent skin and body. I've used my old avatars as well. I've been able to find some of my old favorite haunts, and I've made a few new friends. But the first 3 days were pure frustration as I tried to relearn the game after a two year break.
