The good thing about Second Life is that it is always changing. The bad thing about Second Life is that it is always changing.
The grid keeps getting bigger. There's always new content, changing content. Residents keep creating, and more creative people keep coming in. There's always something fresh to look at, to experience, to explore.
But, sometimes, things and people that you've gotten attached to also eventually go away. They've changed and you've changed. There is less constancy in virtual worlds than in the real world.
Ah, well. We'll always have our memories.... And our chat logs....
