[06:57]  newbie: how can i earn linden?
[06:57]  Debs Regent: many ways
[06:57]  Debs Regent: 1. make stuff

[06:57]  newbie: oh
[06:58]  Debs Regent: for 1. – you need to have skills and often the money to upload stuff
[06:58]  Debs Regent: so if you have no money that’s out
[06:58]  Debs Regent: for 2. you need some experience usually
[06:58]  newbie: that’s pretty hard for me
[06:58]  newbie: heheh
[06:58]  Debs Regent: for 3. not many people just ‘give’ you money – unless they’re either getting a ‘service’ for it or are daft
[06:58]  Debs Regent: mind you there is a 4. too
[06:58]  Debs Regent: 4. you can ‘camp’
[06:59]  Debs Regent: which means some people pay you to stay on their sim
[06:59]  newbie: ahhh
[06:59]  Debs Regent: but because of all the NPC ‘bots’ around these days, not many people pay for campers
