Remember that Rolling Stones song Waiting on a Friend? For a little while now I’ve been noticing an intermittent delay with friends in my Second Life contact list showing up. Instead, all you see is this:
Last night I noticed a RL friend who I also have in my SL friends list sending a Twitter message about some technical problems. I logged into SL and planned to send him a message to ask for more information and possibly help if I could. Problem is my friend list didn’t load, it just stayed in “waiting…” mode. While writing this it occurred to me I could have searched for his avatar and contacted him that way. Where was that line of thinking last night?
When the friends list finally loaded last night, he wasn’t online any more. Has anybody else been having problems with their friends list loading? Is there a tip/trick/workaround to deal with this somehow?
