Earning Money in London City




London City offers many ways to earn cash for the good things in life.

We recognize that many new residents born into the London City Gateway, need a way to get some money quickly, and that finding a job within minutes of being 'born', is likely to prove tricky.

So whilst acclimatizing to Second Life, London City offers many way to have fun and earn at the same time.

For information click the tab at the top of this page that says Earn Money.

There is also a brand new exciting way to earn cash in London City, but it's currently under wraps until we roll it out next week.  Be sure to look at the Earn Money tab during the middle on next week for more news!

Lab releases native 64-bit viewer



Linden Lab has today released their first viewer to be built as a 64-bit application for Windows and Mac.

The use of 64-bit architecture gives much more memory available to application than ever before and offers a more stable experience with significantly fewer crashes.

The viewer will automatically patch its updates via an additional executable SL_Launcher.exe  ensuring you have the latest version, without the need for fresh installations.  It also downloads the specific best version for your operating system and graphics.  For example, if you are still running a 32-bit OS then the correct version of the viewer will automatically install for you.

To see the full story about this new viewer see the blog by Oz Linden

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.
