9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

September 12, 2008 -

A 9/11 remembrance was held in Second Life yesterday on the seventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

As reported by The Click Heard Round the World

There were 70-80 other avatars present... Most folks sat on the grass in respectful silence, restricting communication to instant messages.  A couple of avatars in soldier's uniforms stood at attention. Believe it or not, it means a lot for a bunch of avatars to sit in silence.  It just never happens...

 

On the audio stream, starting at 8:45AM EST (when the first tower was hit) and for several hours afterwards, the names of all the victims of 9/11 were read out by various members of the Second Life community... You could hear people's voices breaking in the midst of reading the seemingly endless list of those lost...

Classic case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder if the individual is over the age of 15. Usually acts agressively and lashes out at cultural norms and authority due to a deep seeded sense entitlement and a near infantile lack of empathy. Acting out via anonymous proxies such as newspaper letters to the editor or Internet forums gives greater license for juvenile power and violence fantasies and encourages the senseless egotism. Generally an undesirable personality, likely a loner though some personal relationships with close family or a friend may occur. Probably unable to create additional lasting relationships and may have trouble holding down steady employment. Possibly abused as a child.

You aren't fooling anyone.

Yeah, just as well. Something tells me that otherwise, you'd be spending a lot of time with ice packs telling your action figures "Just wait until next time... I'll get him then... just wait..."

It's probably best you just stay in your mom's basement. It's safer there.

Agree. Very very very agreed.

Every 5 minutes? What are you talking about? GP didn't even have a 9/11 article yesterday, on September 11. Get off the the chronic and play some Sonic.

LOL! Nice.

Well, I wouldn't expect too much rationality from someone who pretty much admitted to being a sociopath.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

Constantly referring to 9/11 for no real reason irks me too like picking at an open wound, but yesterday was the 11th of September and for better or worse, the events of that day had repercussions that are still being felt today. It's hardly a distant memory best forgotten.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

Gee. I wonder how people responded to other attacks? "Oh gee, the Nazi's are bombing us", "Oh bother, whatever do we do about the British?" "My my, so Pearl Harbor is gone.", and "Woe is I, the Huns are here."

Come talk to me when the human race DOESN'T consider loss of life tragic and horrifying. THEN you have a right to complain.

When it's someone we really fuckin' hate or a lot of people we love or hate, we don't.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

I consider the death of others to equate to nothing more than a slightly quieter and less crowded world.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

By that reasoning, you're pretty easy to dismiss as well, as I can imagine the globe will continue spinning for a few billion years once you've expired.

You sound confused, might I suggest a juice box and a nap?

He may be thinking of Rudy Giuliani perhaps.

And not a single flying phallus in sight? I'm impressed.

MaskedPixelanteOf course it's improved. At launch, Origin was scanning your entire hard drive, but now it's just scanning your browsing history. If that's not an improvement, I dunno what is!07/29/2014 - 8:59pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
