What kind of exotic characters do I need to supply for a password in the 2life?

I gotta build tigerman camp this year. Downloading the second life viewer to check this out again now.

Virtual reality is probably a ways off, despite the hype on oculus / vive.

But this second life burn thing has been going on for some time now. And if you need motivation to see a virtual world, it is still kind of interesting.

You can download the program you need here:

Thanks for the link, still have a little issue with making a complex enough password to satisfy the stupid thing.

Thanks Badger. As it turns out, I'm not smart enough for Second Life. Oh well, more time for my first life.

Much of SL is a ghost town. If you hang around long enough you'll have some furry come along with more than free hugs to give you. Burn2 or not.
