No Second Life for me…

November 21, 2006

I’m not a very lucky person, am I?

Two weeks ago I signed up for “Teen Second Life”, the version of the simulator designed for minors, since I wasn’t allowed to apply for the “real” version until my birthday. When the site refused to accept my registration two or three times, I emailed asking for help — only to be told that I needed to provide Government-provided ID in order to join in.

So, I emailed back and said that I’d rather just wait until my birthday, since it was coming up so soon. More than a week passed without response, until the 17th rolled around and I took a look at my inbox — only to find that not only hey the Linden Labs people created a new account for me using the old username, they had even wished me a happy birthday in doing so.

Awwwww. :)

Of course, my birthday coincided with a fair amount of travel to see my various family members around Canberra, so I haven’t had the chance to login and play until today, a fortnight after my original attempt. And just as soon as I try to play the game I downloaded so long ago, I find that somebody up there hates me. Damnit!

So I guess I have to wait a few hours to play with my Second Life. It wouldn’t be so bad, except I don’t even have a First one to occupy me in the meantime.
