Charlanna Beresford is typing…

December 9, 2010

By my reckoning, Linden Lab owes me an hour or two of my life.  Not because of the time I’ve spent in Second Life, but because of time waiting politely due to the SL bug  in IMs where it will tell you that “so and so is typing…” when they really aren’t.  I can’t begin to tell you the number of loooong silences that have happened as a result.  I usually sheepishly follow up with “are you typing or is SL lying?”  The person then tells me they aren’t and we follow it up with a giggle, of course, but only after we’d been scratching out heads and wondered what happened.  A couple of minutes here and a couple of minutes there really do add up!  Anywho, just throwing this out there, dear readers, it is a bug that drives me up a tree and who knows, maybe some day Linden Lab will fix it…

Curious what I would say? Set your Wayback machine and look after the jump:
