Johnny Cash on Saturday



There are few recording artists who are considered an example of  'cool' throughout their careers and remain there long after their death, but Johnny Cash is one such person.

The American singer-songwriter was one of the top selling music artists of all time, selling more than 90 million records worldwide.

Drug and alcohol abuse featured prominently in his early career until he met and fell in love with June Carter, who was independently famous as part of the bible singing Carter Family.  Cash said he had an epiphany when meeting Carter and his devotion for her made him clean up his habits and embrace the teachings of the Lord.   (Everyone say Hallelujah!)

Johnny Cash is best know for songs, Hurt, A Boy Named Sue, Ghost-riders, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, When The Man Comes Around, Jackson and Walk The Line.

He is appearing  on Saturday and you are invited to spend some time with this great icon.

The party starts at 12pm SLT (8pm UK), with the concert an hour later at 1pm SLT.

A soft launch for Genesis Viewer



We have been working on a new project,  The Genesis Viewer.


This 1.23 style viewer already offers features only seen in v6 style clients, but we are adding features all the time to make this viewer the 'go-to' for laptop users who need high performance and low footprint to get the best experience in Second Life.

We are still in initial development, but this is where you can help.   The latest version is already robust, but now we need your input as users, to hone us in the right direction for the needs of the many..

We currently only have an original legacy skin, but rest assured that although we intend to always offer support for this style, our own unique Genesis skin is on its way.

There is an inworld group and a Discord for those of you who would like to help with testing or offering ideas for features.   Get on board now and see your name in lights :)

Please see the GENESIS tab at the top of the blog for more information or to download the viewer.

Happy Independence Day



Wishing our American friends across the great pond a very happy Independence Day.

On this day in 1776 the United States formally separated from Great Britain.

Thomas Jefferson, penned the Declaration of Independence and later went on to become America's 3rd President.  Nine years later, over breakfast one morning, he drew up the US Constitution, but history recalls it's principal author was actually 4th president James Madison.

Wherever you are, have a great day!
