Also, first life prevented me from joining the Old Guard...but then again, I'm still forging forward at the Lab ;) Miss everybody, including you of course, Hamlet ;)

RL also prevented me from joining the celebration. As a former Linden, I can attest that for myself and those I worked with, SL was far from just another job. For the great, and (as with any workplace) sometimes not so great times, I'll always remember the many years I spent at the Lab, and my former co-workers (and current friends), fondly.

I'm guessing hamlet hears often from SL's crop of cynics. Myself, and my in-world friends never thought you Lindens were just punching a timeclock. Years ago, just of out college, I worked at a fab startup and experienced maybe something of what you probably did, well, less the edgy user community! Hat tip to all you who made SL an RL reality.

Thank You

Argo.

To the Cornfield Crew:
Many thanks for my "other life!" That life and those times are irreplaceable in any world.
