    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

    We're a Virtual Pets and Sim Games Community. We have a lot of Virtual Pet Sites Owners and Sim Games Owners that frequently visit, along with Artists, Writers and Programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our List of Virtual Pet Sites has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.

    Well, I don't use Hotmail, but this is some news for those that still use Hotmail instead of "Gmail".

    I just tried it and I really, really like it. I am a big fan of neat, polished yet minimalistic interfaces. Much faster and organized.

    I wish they would just pick one mail format and stick with it.

    Like seriously, at work there was Outlook, I also had Hotmail, on Vista they had Windows Mail (or some such thing), on Windows 7 they have Windows Live Mail, and it is integrated with Hotmail. And then there is LiveDotcom

    Why do they need all that stuff, just pick one so it isn't so confusing! lol All they really need is one internet mailing service and one PC mail and make them work together, and quit changing it every new OS and having a zillion domains.

    I wouldn't know, or care, because I sync my hotmail account to my Gmail, so every email stays in one place for me to check. :)

    I just tried it out. I really don't like it. It is almost too simple for me and not as crisp as Gmail. Also there are quite a number of ads on the right hand site for me, which I feel are poorly integrated. Gmails ads are barely noticeable, outlooks, are sticking out and ugly.

    I do the same thing. It's a lot easier for me to manage my emails as well. @Corleone You're not the only one apparently the new hotmail has been downloaded over 1 million times.
