Hi Hamlet. I've completed the "Tag" you gave me to post 8 Random Things about me, and I forwarded it to eight others. Hugs-

Hmm. Caps were *implemented* but I don't believe they were ever used. Linden Lab said they'd post an announcement if they ever had cause to turn the cap on. This apparently did not take place.

Hamlet Au

During peak periods, you're often given a log-in wait time-- I'd say that also qualifies as a cap.

RE: SL is ported to a next gen game console.

Um ... Can't you run SL on the linux partition of PS3?

Debian I believe has SL available for download via apt-get, though not directly part of a distro CD/DVD (obviously, its too much of a moving target for that).

I think it is actually pretty well accepted that income made in virtual worlds is taxable -- at least when it is withdrawn as dollars. The big question for most tax experts is whether it is taxable before it is withdrawn as "real" money.

Hamlet Au

Yeah, I'd wondered about that prediction's phrasing-- I think it's meant to be when the IRS explicitly says L$ income is taxable, just as they say about contest winnings, casino payouts, and other non-standard forms of income listed in our 1040s.
