We are sorry for what seemed like continual restarts on all four of our regions at various times for most of yesterday.
As is normal on Tuesdays, the Second Life Servers were rolled for update, but unexpectedly also rolled all of the Release Candidate servers too, placing them on the main channel by accident.
A second roll was later performed to hopefully correct this error, but unfortunately it then placed the estate on the incorrect RC channel, After a third and final roll the estate finally went back to the correct server.
Each roll resulted in approximately 30 minutes of down time per region and effected not only our visitors ability to enter London City but also caused disruption to ongoing events.
We are sorry for this disruption, but it was beyond our control, and we are pleased to let you know that everything is now resolved.

THE EMPIRES OF THE FUTURE...
The opening of Second Life's largest community event is just one day away. It seems like only yesterday we were at the closing events of SL10B and now here we are a year later about to celebrate the opening of SL11B, Second Life's Eleventh Birthday.
This years event features the best and brightest that Second Life has to offer, and we are pleased that London City has been counted among them. The only London in Second Life asked to participate at the Official SL11B event, the London City Exhibit is based on a bright and prosperous future.
Of course, being the only London chosen to exhibit did present some pressures but we happily rose to the challenge. It was great to be able to build in confidence knowing that those who abused their Second Life Birthday parcel last year to grief us were excluded from participation this year.
The build began with a concept and quickly took on a life of it's own. Growing and changing to become what we feel exemplifies this years theme, "The Empires Of The Future Are The Empires Of The Mind".
As part of the SL11Big Hunt, we have not one but TWO free gifts for you. These items were created by London Brand exclusively for London City's Exhibit. But you'll have to wait until tomorrow when the regions officially open before you can get your hands on these one of a kind items.
Everyone here at London City would like to thank the Community, Visitors and Merchants for making London City the most popular destination in Second Life.

Congratulations to Austria this year for winning the Eurovision Song Contest with their artiste Conchita, the bearded lady.
British entry Molly was Smitten-Downes with a sore throat just one day ahead of the contest and there was a worry that at one point she would use the rhythm method and pull out just ahead of the contest, but on the night, like the true star she isn't, she sang her heart out and sailed into obscurity securing just 40 points landing us in 17th position.
We last won Eurovision 17 years ago in 1997 with Love Shine a Light by Katrina and the Waves.
This is the longest gap ever for us since last winning. We've even tried rolling out the big guns in recent years with class acts such as Queen Victoria's favourite, the 79 year old Engelbert Humpadink and ever tuneful Bonnie Tyler. Some of us fear that until we wheel out Cilla Black on a gurney, we shall not win again.
Enjoy the video.
