Bailey's Jumble Sale and Bizarre



Years ago in Second Life, Yard Sales were a popular weekend activity.  As a resident progressed through their game, they would sell off their transferable items cheaply, by re-boxing them and placing them on their land.

The guests would purchase the boxes, then use the 'take' command to place them in their inventory for their own use and pleasure.

It was great fun, terribly time consuming for the person selling the items, but a wonderful Jumble Sale atmosphere or rummaging was had by all.

So imagine how distressed we all were to hear that Madame Bailey (Bailey Saxmundham), who has donkeys years worth of old clothing, was just about to delete all her old glam hairdo's and frocks, and send them off to the great skip in the sky for all time.

We have pleaded with Madame Bailey to hold a church Bizarre at her house next weekend and to box up all her transferable tat for sale.  This is a lot of work for her and she is reluctant to do it unless many people attend.

To show your support, we invite you to contact her and pledge the 10L admission fee into Saxmundham Mansion (5L to the unwaged) next Sunday (UK day time) and come and rummage around her old undies for some great bargains.

Lemonade and Ginger cake will be available on the day.   We'll keep you posted about this event!


Trash or Treasure?



Some new wonderful items have been added to the litter bin located outside Freebie Megastore in http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/88/204/23
London City.

They include and empty disposable lighter (always handy for when someone you don't like asks for a light).

An uglies paper bag (in case your body looks better than your face) and a wearable TeePee for those nights when you are too drunk to stagger home.

Happy hunting!  and don't forget there are over 100 items to collect, and at random intervals, some cash too!  Just walk in to the litter bin and you will receive your reward!

Oktobefest Hangover



It was a sensational event at Lala's last night for Oktoberfest.  The drinks were flowing, the running buffet was finger-licking good, and Madame Bailey going round on the turntable after a few gins was the highlight of the night.




If you enjoyed Lala's last night, then next Friday is a true spectacular for you as Lala's holds a special Michaelmas Day Event with a full sit-down meal, dinner and a dance!

Resolved! Grid problems and a London City roll back



Last night there was a grid outage which kept residents off-line for about 3 hours.

When logins were re-enabled there was an unexpected anomaly in the prim accounting system, where some regions would report less available prims than there should be.  This also meant that where the calculation had been applied incorrectly and a region appeared to run out of prims, certain content was returned to owners in what appeared to be a random fashion.

London City Estate was affected by this problem.  To remedy this issue, we have rolled back all four regions to their state as at 6pm PDT on Wednesday 6th September, which is immediately before the grid outage.

We have conducted a full inspection of the estate and we are satisfied that all is now as it should be.   Please get in touch with with us if you have any concerns.

London City - Official Community Gateway




Almost Two years ago, London City, and Firestorm became the first of the next generation Official Community Gateways to come on-line.

Since then over 300,000 new residents have begun their journey in Second Life, via the portal operated by London City.

The gateway has the emphasis on quick-starting a resident by showing them the basics of walking, running, camera controls and jumping.  These are the bare bone essentials needed to begin their adventure, and if they decide for a more in-depth tutorial, they can take a tour of the full region and follow the examples - or - they can choose to jump right into the community region London City and meet other residents.

From there, our Support team will show them how to customize their avatar, dance, shop, create landmarks and search for places and events of interest.  For those who want to take it to another level, London City also offers building and scripting classes.

This video shows the kind of group events enjoyed by residents being born into London City Official Community Gateway.
