The Easter Holiday in London City - Starts Thursday evening!

This weekend is the longest break in the UK since Christmas... yes it's the partay season also known
as Easter.

All clubs and venues will be open throughout the weekend which starts on Thursday night in England and runs through to Monday night!

So don't forget if you're going to chapel, to pass a Tesco Express on the way back and make sure you are fully stocked with tinnies galore to get you through this most important of seasons in the social calendar.





Concerts this weekend include the continuation of the Disco theme with the legendary UK disco band, Boney M on Saturday night.

For those of you who are feeling a little more biblical on Sunday, Australian band, Judith Durham and Seekers will be singing all their famous up-tempo folksy songs, which will be followed by the annual Crucifix race where you can win 500L for doing the fastest lap of the sim whilst nailed to a cross and to finish, the world famous, Egg'n'Spoon marathon!

Classy entertainment in London City, throughout the weekend!

Meeting Ebbe Linden


What a delightful chap Ebbe Linden is.  He wants to take us back to the golden olden days of Lindens in World and us all working together.

Wants to rework the TOS and is adamant that LL in no way lays claim to other peoples intellectual property.

Wants to improve the latency and performance of SL and appeal to the masses instead of the million.

He tells me that he appreciates all the work we put in to building communities.

I enquire about tier fees.  He says, they haven't crossed that bridge yet.

The Weekend in Video Review

What a superb weekend, yielding some of the highest online traffic in Second Life this year.

Here in London City, on Sunday night 109 avatars were present, which is quite remarkable considering that not more than 100 visitors should be able to be in the same region at the same time.

It demonstrates that when a region is full, if you persevere and continue to teleport, or better still, walk over from a neighbouring region, you can bend the grid to your will!   It also makes us wonder just how many people would have been here if Linden Lab did not impose agent limits!

Enjoy the video of the weekend in the London City, the single most popular destination since 2010.
