Second Life Premium Offer - They Pay You!



In August we explained how Premium Membership to Second Life could cost as little as 26 pence a month for those of us in the UK who opted to pay for membership on an annual basis.

You can see that story here

This month, Second Life has another offer for premium membership at just US$11.25 for 3 months (£7.31).   Add back the stipends you receive, worth £3.35 a month and the 1000L bonus worth £2.59 and you get £12.64 in Linden Dollars for the £7.31 you pay for Premium!   Now this really is a bargain!

Just some of the benefits of Premium Membership include:

A Linden Home -or- a 512 sq meter parcel for you to build on supporting 117 prims.
Expanded Support, now including Live Chat
Exclusive Activities including Dune Buggy Racing in Racer's Gulch
Free Premium member gifts
Access to Premium member only Sandboxes
Increase from 42 to 60 groups!
Increase from 25 to 50 offline messages!
Other offers and incentives offered constantly.


Don't forget, VAT is no longer applied to European membership.   So now is a great time to jump on board.  Hurry because this offer only lasts until 2nd November!

Second Life improvements



Linden Lab has blogged about some new features coming our way:

Media on a Prim utilizing HTML5 and replacing the old Quicktime framework (that many Windows 64-bit users can't use anymore anyway!).

Rendering Complexity, a way to block the rendering of avatars with high render weights that impede the performance of your viewer.

Quick Graphics. Store multiple settings for graphics, accessible at the click of a button. Handy for when you want to enable high detail for photographs and video or lower detail for busy places, or to set a different ambiance for a beach or a city.

Notifications. For the busy resident, the ability to sort incoming notifications into categories.

See the Linden Lab official blog for an in-depth explanation of these new features.

Saturday: Hazel O'Connor - Breaking Glass Concert



A special treat this weekend for those of you who remember the 80's New Wave scene in the UK.

A hit film starring Hazel O'Connor and Phil Daniels, broke the box office in 1981.  The film was called Breaking Glass and charted the success of a post-Punk/New Wave singer 'Kate' from humble beginnings, singing in rowdy back street bars, to sudden super stardom and her eventual meltdown.

Hazel O'Connor wrote and performed all of songs from the movie and just like her character in the film, experienced a brief superstardom in the early 80s with songs, Black Man, Eighth Day,  If Only, Writing on the Wall, D-Days, Who Needs It and her most famous of all, Will You, which remained in the charts for 14 weeks.

Come and enjoy our live tribute show on Saturday http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/128/113/23 

The Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm UK).
