Linden Lab explains what went wrong at the weekend



April Linden has written on the official Second Life blog, to explain what went wrong over the weekend resulting in the severest performance issues in a very long time.

To see the message in full, see the link below.

We had a series of independent failures happen that produced the rough waters Residents experienced inworld.

[...]

I’m really sorry for how rough things were inworld this weekend. My team takes the stability of the grid extremely seriously, and no one dislikes downtime more than us. Either one of these failures happening independently is bad enough, but having them occur in a series like that is fairly miserable.

London City Gateway open for a PREVIEW



Whilst the building for London City Gateway continues, we are pleased to let you know that the initial phase of the completed building work will give a good flavour of what is yet to come in the Gateway in terms of  additional content, useful guides and free items.

The region is now open for Preview.. and by preview we mean that not everything is working yet, not all texturing is complete and there are a lot of things still to be set in their correct position.

If you would like to have a look around the London City Gateway region and see our progress so far visit: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City%20Gateway/183/85/24

Everly Brothers on Saturday



Appearing  this Saturday: The Everly Brothers.

Don and Phil Everly first became famous back in 1957 with Bye Bye Love and quickly established themselves as Rock n Rollers for the rest of that decade. Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy's Clown and Walk Right Back followed successively before they moved into the rock-a-ballad style they later became synonymous with.

In the mid 1960's they chart topped with, Crying In The Rain, Devoted To You, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Love Is Strange, Ebony Eyes, When Will I Be Loved and other softer rock songs.

By the start of the 1970's both brothers had become addicted to amphetamines which lead to a nervous breakdown for Don and the duo stopped recording. By the time both were recovered, disagreements had turned into a feud and the brothers did not perform, nor communicate with each other for a decade and pursued fruitless solo careers.

Thirteen years after the split, they performed some tense reunion concerts together beginning in the UK in 1983 where they had agreed that they would only talk to each other whilst on stage, but only if it was necessary.  Encouraged by the media hype of the reunion, in 1984 they recorded, On The Wings Of A Nightingale which was to be their final song to enter the charts.

By the 1990's the brothers had made peace with each other, but their stop-start careers had eroded their following and they continued to perform one-off reunion concerts every few years until their last appearance in 2004 as featured artists for the Simon & Garfunkel tour Old Friends, Live On Stage.

Phil Everly died in 2014, but the Everly Brothers legacy will live on.
We invite you to experience their heyday and bask in the incredible love songs penned by these talented and troubled souls.

Party in the Park is at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the stage show an hour later.
