and after all, you're my beta wall

Fleep got me back into Second Life for a while. The basic account is free, so why not? I rather like the game and its concept; I played quite a bit two years ago in Beta. Unfortunately, my previous avatar (who went by the brilliant local moniker of Cambridge Fats) and all the pleasant land he owned went the way of the bitbucket when the game went live and I was not ready to afford the subscription fee. So it goes.

Now, two years later, I returned and was pretty impressed by what the game's become. But more on that some other time. I started up a new character (Fats no longer being an available surname, I chose the unwieldy yet alliterative "Hieronymous Horton") and started wandering around. I heard of a little monument to beta testers, so I travelled out to the Plum sim (each section of land is run on its own server and called a sim; there's over 1000 of 'em in use) to check it out. It turned out to be a little three-wall project with a dedication on one wall and the names of the beta testers, Vietnam Memorial-style, on the other two.

So I found my name.

Angstrom Becquerel, you're in there too.
