The Christmas Games




With the grid migrating to London City for Christmas,  it's a great time to catch up with people you haven't seen in a racoon's age, as they escape their families, kick off their shoes and relax with a nice bottle of Burgundy.

For your merriment we have a Christmas quiz, Musical Chairs, and a good old fashioned knees up around the piano for those who want to make a spectacle of themselves.

Return of the Christmas Stool Survey



Too many sprouts?

Famous for our classy user polls.. today we ask, how is it going for you this Christmas?

For anonymous medical research and certainly not for merriment, we are concerned whether or not the sprouts, turkey and alcohol affecting you more than usual?



Boxing Day



It is Boxing day today, another public holiday in the UK.

So after you've digested todays roast dinner and flicked through the usual movies on the telly, pop in to London City and have fun showing off your new toys and games to other Residents. 

Also try your luck at the games tables, or just pop in for a sherry or three.  We're open throughout the holidays, so come share some cheer with your friends.

Paying for Premium membership using Linden Dollars



You can pay for premium membership using Linden Dollars.. Here's how:


Log on to your dashboard at Secondlife.com and look for the Linden Exchange panel on the left hand side. Click manage, then click Sell.

The amount you need to sell from your Second Life account is L$3,100 and this will raise US$11.37







You will be asked to confirm your password and then your order will be processed.

At this point, this is usually where you would go to the Process Credit part to request funds to be sent to you in US dollars.   But for this method of paying for premium subscription, you leave the money in your account.

Finally, you head over to https://secondlife.com/premium and upgrade your account.  Whenever any payments for Premium, Land Tier etc is taken by the lab, it always checks to see if you have US Dollars on deposit on your account and will always take from that pool first, before debiting your credit card.  Therefore if you wish to remain as a quarterly premium member, you would need to repeat this process every 12 weeks (selling 6200L).  Alternatively, keep an eye out for deals on annual Premium subscription which is an even better offer.
