New voting booth - Man on the moon?



A new voting panel is in the park asking "Has man really been to the moon?"

Before you vote, consider that it was at the height of the cold war and the Russians were making all of the significant steps in space, leaving the rest of the world behind.    The Soviet Union had launched the first orbiting satellite, animal, and first man into space. They had logged 5 times the amount of hours in space than anyone else.

High above the earth at 1,000 miles and extending to 25,000 miles lay lethal bands of radiation called the Van Allen radiation belt.  Every manned mission in history since the first in 1961 to the present has been well below this radiation field, except Apollo.  In order to survive the hour and half journey through this radiation field, solid lead shielding would be required. Instead a thin sheet of foil was used as the only protection.

The furthest man had ever been in space was 250 miles in low earth orbit and the moon is 235,000 miles away.  The international space station orbits the earth at 245 miles.

A pocket calculator has more computing power than computers in the 1960s

In modern times, we have never returned to the moon.

But if you believe we put a man on the moon, please vote yes.

Restart Problems on Tuesday



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.

London City Community Gateway






Second Life's London themed Community Gateway, "London City Gateway" is taking shape.

The Gateway aims to give new users the basic skills they need to enjoy their initial experience in Second Life.

New users creating accounts will be given the option to login directly to London City, so it is important to include as many useful tutorials as possible, without overwhelming a newcomer.

The 'Walk-Through' already covers how to move, walk, fly, communicate, dress avatars, use pose balls and join groups.



We are very fortunate that London City group memberships now total a quarter of a million residents and to that end we would like to draw upon your wealth of experience and invite your comments, suggestions and ideas for additional 'instructions' that should be included.






Please visit London City Community Gateway and imagine yourself as a brand new user. If you have a suggestion for something we should include as a basic but essential skill that a new user will need within the first hour of their Second Life, please drop a note card in-world to Billy Arentire.

At this point we are not seeking to demonstrate building skills as a part of the tour as this will be included in a dedicated area.

Thank you to all your suggestions so far.  Please keep them coming.
