Earning Money in London City




London City offers many ways to earn cash for the good things in life.

We recognize that many new residents born into the London City Gateway, need a way to get some money quickly, and that finding a job within minutes of being 'born', is likely to prove tricky.

So whilst acclimatizing to Second Life, London City offers many way to have fun and earn at the same time.

For information click the tab at the top of this page that says Earn Money.

There is also a brand new exciting way to earn cash in London City, but it's currently under wraps until we roll it out next week.  Be sure to look at the Earn Money tab during the middle on next week for more news!

The Old Bull and Bush




The wartime pub in London City is coming along nicely as the whole team potter away collecting memorabilia from the wartime, coupons, posters, ration books and Ministry of Food recipes.

The pub has its own voice parcel, 24 hour 1940's radio stream, board games, drinks and leader board competitions.

Today we added a game of draughts (checkers) which uses proper rules, where you can take a whole series of your opponents pieces if you line them up correctly.

So keep an eye on the pub, its a bit of leisurely fun and its all coming together quite nicely.

"Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft", is  the recognised anthem of World Contact Day which happens in March each year, where the song is constantly broadcast by satellites into outer space.

Join us for The Carpenters in Concert.  Party in the Park starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) and features songs from the era and The Carpenters in Concert begins an hour later at 1pm SL.

Lab releases native 64-bit viewer



Linden Lab has today released their first viewer to be built as a 64-bit application for Windows and Mac.

The use of 64-bit architecture gives much more memory available to application than ever before and offers a more stable experience with significantly fewer crashes.

The viewer will automatically patch its updates via an additional executable SL_Launcher.exe  ensuring you have the latest version, without the need for fresh installations.  It also downloads the specific best version for your operating system and graphics.  For example, if you are still running a 32-bit OS then the correct version of the viewer will automatically install for you.

To see the full story about this new viewer see the blog by Oz Linden
