Grid Issues



The Second Life Grid has been up and down many times over the past 24 hours.   April Linden takes up the story..


Hi everyone.

As I’m sure most of y’all have noticed, Second Life has had a rough 24 hours. We’re experiencing outages unlike any in recent history, and I wanted to take a moment and explain what’s going on.

The grid is currently undergoing a large DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. Second Life being hit with a DDoS attack is pretty routine. It happens quite a bit, and we’re good at handling it without a large number of Residents noticing. However, the current DDoS attacks are at a level that we rarely see, and are impacting the entire grid at once.

My team (the Second Life Operations Team) is working as hard as we can to mitigate these attacks. We’ve had people working round-the-clock since they started, and will continue to do so until they settle down. (I had a very late night, myself!)

Second Life is not the only Internet service that’s been targeted today. My sister and brother opsen at other companies across the country are fighting the same battle we are. It’s been a rough few days on much of the Internet.

We’re really sorry that access to Second Life has been so sporadic over the last day. Trying to combat these attacks has the full attention of my team, and we’re working as hard as we can on it. We’ll keep posting on the Second Life Status Blog as we have new updates.

See you inworld!

Second Life Operations Team Lead

Ride on the Peace Train



It was the climax of the love-in at London City.

Through February, lovers enjoyed Matt Monro, Neil Sedaka and the Everly's in concert.  Bringing the event to a close, last night, Cat Stevens filled the amphitheater with pure love!   There wasn't a dry eye in the house.  We all had tears rolling down our legs..

Today it is Substation with Bailey and Coffee at 11am PST, then the Cash For Questions quiz with Katty on the beach at 1pm PST.

To boldly send a jolopy into space



In November 2017, you will recall the maiden flight of Flat Grid 1.  An effort to conclusively prove once and for all that the Second Life world is flat and not round.

The initial flight of our dung powered rocket was fraught with problems and our heroic astronauts were forced to return to earth in the lunar module (sofa).

Today in a gigantic leap for mankind, Flat Grid 1 launched a sculpty VW Beetle into low earth orbit.

The launch of this old banger into space, conclusively proves we can now travel to any planet in the galaxy.
