Still here, but my computer broke weeks ago. I'm running on an older computer that can barely handle running Second Life; lots of lag, long loading times. Anyhow, I'm unable to run News Beat, because I can't open even paintbrush or Microsoft Word at the same time with Second Life, without the computer crashing. This doesn't mean the end of News Beat, it's just on hold until I get a computer.
ETA of new computer: a month.
You'll see G. Welders around CD, but not in the busy parts. All of the bling effects and too many people causes the computer to overheat and quit.
