Thank you so much. Now I know one more thing that I don't need to think about. I got in. I walked. I ran. I chatted. Very impressive. Not very many people to interact with. A couple of avatars 'blew me off'. Some were nice and welcoming. Not my thing. Thanks for the help in getting me in there. I've never been one for video games and that is very much a game. Everybody should try it.

I did about the same thing. I only saw one other person there--some girl riding a snake or aligator art car. I also tried to purposely walk into walls and stuff. Instead of getting knocked down or stopped, the program walks you around them.

Isn't for me either. I uninstalled the program.

That might be the live chat? Did you download and install the program on your computer? That's what I did. I couldnt figure out how to do it via my browser, or if thats even possible. Then when I was in the practice place, at the top there was a search box. I entered Burn2 and it asked me if I wanted to be teleported there. I said yes and I next thing I knew I was standing at the gate. Seemed like a long walk so I decided to try the fly feature. Why not? But once inside, I walked around a bit but nobody else, except for aligator girl was there.

I saw 2 people walking around and 4 sitting by a fire. There was some background noise and loud music every once in a while. I typed a few things into the chat box and then got tired of it. If I knew how to get costumes, dance, sit, spin around or do anything at all maybe I would like it. Honestly, I don't have the patience to learn it. To much like a video game and if it ain't centipedes, breakout or donkey kong jr. I don't have any use for it.

Well, cheers to you for giving it a go anyway. The interface is sort of technical-leaning. Even though I messed with it quite a bit before, coming back I still had to ask someone how to do the dancing bit again, it is that confusing.

Once you get past how to work the software, you then have to get past the social convention of it sll. Some people are friendlier than others. Sounds a bit like eplaya to me. :)

I also like centipede.

Does John Law actually go to Burn2, or were Manny, Moe, and Jack simply kidnapped and brought alone?
