Problems returning to a region?



If you are one of those affected by Teleport failures when returning to a region you have previously visited during your session, it appears increasingly likely that it is due to your Antivirus software,  in particular, Malware Bytes.

Maestro Linden writes on  BUG-229871 

Per the findings in the comments thread, it appears that this issue is caused by Malwarebytes interfering with the viewer's connection to the simulator. I recommend either relying  [on] different antivirus software than Malwarebytes or follow Lucia's instructions to explicitly whitelist the SL viewer 

This may also affect other AV software and/or other 3rd party viewers.

Kate Bush - Saturday



Out of the blue, at the age of 19, Kate Bush topped the UK singles chart with her debut single Wuthering Heights and was the first British woman to have a UK number one with a song she had penned herself.

She has had a further 25 top 40 hits with songs, The Man with the Child in his Eyes, Babooshka, Running Up that Hill, Wow, Don't Give Up, King of The Mountain and many more.

She had not performed on stage in nearly twenty years, but in 2015 did a brief tour for die-hard fans where tickets are changing hands in excess of £400.

Enjoy the music of Kate Bush this weekend in London City as we pay tribute to one of Britain's icons of the 70s and 80s.

The Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the Concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh




Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has died at the age of 99, Buckingham Palace has said.

A statement from the Palace said: "It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

"His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle."

Great Britain will now begin a period of national mourning, until the day of the Duke's funeral, the longest serving consort to a monarach, in history.  The Duke would have had his 100th Birthday in June.

The Duke, who hated “fuss” and took a no-nonsense approach to life, had planned a royal ceremonial funeral, rather than a State funeral, giving him the same status as Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Buckingham Palace has indicated that it will be a revised funeral in accordance with coronavirus restrictions and the Prince's wishes.  Current legislation limits funerals to 30 members.  The funeral is likely to take place in one weeks time.

For those would like to mark the passing of the Prince in Second Life, a black armband is available in the meeting area.

Easter, The Jebus Revival!





Jan Couch     -      Tammy Faye Bakker     -      Vestal Goodman

This weekend in London City, we're holding a "Revival".  A toe-tapping high tempo, deep south, Gospel concert, starring our versions of Jan Crouch and Tammy Faye Bakker as hosts, with Vestal Goodman (known as Vestal Virgin) as the lead performer in our show.

In America, selling God is a multi-billion dollar, tax free business, raking in wealth for its televangelists, unimaginable even by the most famous of performers.

Each week millions of people tune into crying preachers who offer everything from cures for terminal illnesses to guarantees of making you as rich as them, so long as you send them your hard earned cash on a regular basis.

The premise being that God is a bit strapped for cash and that a mighty oak will grow from the acorn you plant.

Perpetually embroiled in scandals of racketeering, prostitution and embezzlement, it is also a cut throat business with each ministry condemning other ministries and producing evidence on each other,  as they compete for the prize fund of your money.

Kenneth Copeland     -     Benny Hinn     -     Robert Tilton

Top of the tree is Kenneth Copeland, with a tax free estimated worth of over a billion dollars, a fleet of private jets and his own airport, all used for spreading the word of the ministry... and holidays.

Every so often things go wrong, as it did in 1987 for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who were the original Satellite Televangelists. Jim was found guilty of mail fraud and sent to prison for 47 years, but paroled just 5 years later. His mistake was to oversell time-share stays at Heritage USA, a city he had built to spread the good word.

Since the Bakkers mistakes, other televangelists have stopped offering tangible assets and instead offer to use their own hot line direct to God (who speaks to them constantly) to get you the things you want.  Since this cannot be measured, its all perfectly legal and profitable in the extreme!

However, with such extreme stakes involved, the production value of the shows produced by each ministry is paralleled only by Walt Disney studios.

Our Revival concert highlights the very best of the glitz and glamour you can expect as your sins are melted away.  It is tongue in cheek, has a free bar with hard liquor, the occasional hooker for our preachers and lots of crying.

We are not poking fun at people's beliefs, we are however aiming to lambaste the highest paying entertainment job in the world.

Starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with 'The Hungry Goodmans' on stage from 1pm SL time.

As always and as part of our public service and customer care, we have scoured the supermarkets for cheap holiday grog. This year's winners are Asda (Walmart if outside the UK) and Sainsbury's.

70p a per 440ml can of Fosters in Asda.

53p per 300ml bottle of Bud in Sainsburys.

Chalet Linden Homes launched ahead of schedule!







Breaking news:  Chalet Linden Homes are now available  AND the Bellisseria continent now connects to the Satori Continent!  

Patch Linden says: Chalet theme homes are modeled after stylized European alpine wood-timbered houses (fachwerkhaus), of a type that you might expect to find in mountains of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, or northern Italy. These are not rustic buildings, but contemporary homes ready for 21st century living.


Be sure to check by the London City Portals; we will feature some of these new homes in our Linden Homes Portal. :

Here comes summer-time



In the UK and Europe, the clocks go forward by 1 hour at bedtime, tonight!

This means that London City will "catch up" with the confusing USA clocks that changed two weeks ago and London time will be back to where it was, 8 hours ahead of SL Time.
