Login issues



Vintage "outage" page.
As of Monday morning UK time, Login issues to Second Life continue.
Since Sunday, there have been incidents where the entire population has been thrown off-grid for an hour or more at a time.

You can check progress on this issue by clicking the button at the top of the blog to see the Grid Status

Frustrating as it is, these things happen from time to time and rest assured the lab is doing all they can to restore normality.


This graph as at 2am SL time (9am UK) charts the outages.  The gaps indicate when no residents were online.

This issue was subsequently resolved Monday afternoon.

From the lab:

Heya Folks.
I can confirm it was a DDoS attack, and yes, the folks on my team had a rough weekend.

We do our best to fight DDoSes, but this one took quite a bit more effort than normal.

I’m sorry people’s plans got interrupted over the weekend. It was a rough weekend for all of us… including those of us on this side of the grid, too.

The UK clocks went forward one hour this morning.. so today at 12pm SL time (7pm UK) it is Substation with Bailey and Coffee, then join Katty on the beach for Worlds End from 2pm SL (9pm UK).  Don't worry, we all catch up again as everyone else's clocks change next weekend!

Oktoberfest the event




A wonderful night was had, thanks to Bailey and Coffee at Lala's, which had turned itself into a beer tent full of grog sampling residents.

Top Omph-pa-pa tunes were heard throughout the evening, and a special appearance by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel made the event even more special!

Don't forget today is party day with the Worlds End pub at 11am SL (7pm UK) and then Party in The Park from 12pm SL (8pm UK) followed by the concert by Hazel O'Connor.

Cash at The Crown Wine Bar




Missing from the London City landscape for a couple of years now, we are thrilled that The Crown Wine Bar has at last made a long overdue return!

Located just off the welcome area in the main hub, The Crown is a one stop venue for entertainment and for winning some cash!

You will need to join the group inside the bar for details of events being held.  An inviter located inside the venue will automatically invite you.

As well as regular DJ events, there are some very handy features for new users looking to earn a few linden dollars to pay for some of life's luxuries.

These cash incentives, include cleaning the bar after the untidy customers,  being a dancer, answering cash questions at 1L a pop, a cash dropper and a lucky chair!

Pop over to The Crown and check it all out
