Today is the last day you can buy money from a 3rd party system as Linden Lab terminates the
Reseller pilot program.
For many years, third parties were able to buy and sell Linden dollars to other residents. Last year, a change of agreement by Linden Lab permitted only the selling of L$ by a 3rd party and not the purchase of excess L$ from residents. However, just 8 weeks ago the Lab announced that it was discontinuing the pilot scheme completely and that Resellers had until 1st August to wrap up their businesses.
For the past two months, Resellers have been campaigning for a stay of execution at least until the end of this year, but to no avail.
DX Exchange one of the largest Third Party Money Resellers says on their site:
"We almost run out of our L$ stock. LL did not respond to the petitions. It's the end of an era.
We still have a small stock for those who just bought and still have to withdraw their L$.
We advice you to do it now, so you won't be disappointed. We are not allowed to buy L$ to replenish"
So if you have cash on deposit, today would be a good day to collect it.
Having had a long and happy association with TeleLinden and DX Exchange, we here at London City, wish both companies well in whichever direction they now choose to direct their business activities.

It was once unthinkable that anything could come close to making a dent the cravings of the hardened smoker for their delicious cigarettes.
The NHS tried issuing free patches, lozenges, nasal sprays and none of these alternatives made much of a difference.
Then the e-cigarette came along and was quickly eclipsed by vaping devices. Take a look in any high street and you will notice that for every 4 or 5 smokers you seen enjoying their smoke, you will see a trendy person with a vape.
Could it be that soon, smoking of cigarettes will become so highly unfashionable that those of us who still love a toke, move over to Vaping?
Nikotin in London City is the first brand in SL to exploit this new trend amongst smokers, offering various paraphernalia and gadgets to accessorise your Second Life avatar and equip it for vaping.

Forty years ago, waitress Debbie Harry, who had been performing part-time in a folk band, formed Blondie with her friend Chris Stein.
In 1976 they released their first album Blondie and from then on became a huge success in Australia, England and America.
Although the bulk of their hits were in a relatively short timespan from 1978 to 1981, their most successful release, Maria was not until the band reformed, many years later in 1999.
Now regularly touring again, you can enjoy the hits once more at The Blondie Tribute Concert, this Saturday in London City. The party begins at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.
