Around the Grid in thirty days.



Todays sim: Zindra. What? it counts. It's a sim isn't it?



Well, I am age verified, but since I have a child avie's profile, I'm not taking any chances. You have to be age verified through credit card and ID. Myself as well as others thing that Linden Labs has screwed up by this. I think they should of made a seprete grid and set everything up as a porn site. Then set up the main grid like they want, a safe enviroment for family and education.

As I look at the adult continent I see lots of different places that sprouted up.
All adult.

Around the grid in 30 days.






30 sims in 30 days. Todays sim is York University DEM

*gives a scared kitty look as ears lay back and eyes grow wide with fear*
I didn't do it. No really.

Needless to say I didn't stay long and will not put the Slurl on.

It is our goal to run a clean beautiful sim for all to enjoy. Rules are here so you know, up front, what to expect. This will not turn into a run down trashy sim with no regard for your needs. If we keep it beautiful people will come back time and again.



We will have a minimum of five adverts running at all times to encourage visitors to stop by and go for a stroll and visit your shops. Each advert will have a different TP location so we can get traffic to each section of each sim.



We do not advertise for individual stores. We do encourage you to do this. It cost as little as $50 a week to advertise and we have found it will increase your business and boost your sales.



We will be holding regular events and activities on the island. This brings people in for the event but it also gets them to have a look around. The sim is free to use for events, just contact the staff for times.



We do not push traffic on the sims, but we do try to attract people here to see it and enjoy it.

We will monitor the island for lag and make all attempts to keep it as low as possible. If you have an item causing excessive lag it will be returned.

International Comic Con in Second Life


Aftermath 2 I'm looking this time. Maybe next time I'll have something for them. Pics will soon follow.
Con lasts til Sun. Doors are always open and costumes are encouraged.

Around the Grid in 30 days: Urdu


Urdu is on the main grid also. It seems I'm getting slim pickins. The sim seems to be some people's homes and they have made it look ever so nice. But looks can be deceiving. They also left the heart or life meter on. That means they can shoot you on the spot.

[06:38 AM] ladina Fauna: Greetings
[06:38 AM] ladina Fauna: smiles
[06:38 AM] ladina Fauna: i am sorry.. this is a human only environment
[06:38 AM] ladina Fauna: do you have a human form you can change to?
[06:39 AM] Bloodfang Clawtooth: I'm gone
[06:39 AM] Bloodfang Clawtooth: sorry

And todays adventure ends. It's a nice place to vesit, but I wouldn't want to live here.

Edit: Upon further inspection of the nice ladie's profile I saw she was with the Gorean book groups. That is why she asked if I had a human avie.

In the most general use of the word, Gorean means anything characteristic of the Gor science fiction novels by John Norman. In these novels, the word "Gorean" is used to refer to the fictional counter-earth, to its inhabitants and social customs, and to the particular language which is the most widely-spoken lingua franca in the known inhabited regions of Gor (though other languages are also spoken on the planet).

Around the Grid in thirty days: Transylvania










Transylvania I'm in the sim for vampires. This a hang out for vampires and the like. This is a no RPG sim.
People often asks me if I bite or if I like vampires. They are ok but I'd rather be a super hero any day.

Shopping area, hang outs, the castle is a hang out, a stage area for live concerts.

Around the Grid in thirty days: Sokri

Sokri is our next sim.
There really isn't too many separate sims away from the mainland this time.
And I noticed that most S named sims are in my store's area or on the same continent.

The area has a Asian mall with a tiny store in there. Tiny Love has some nice animal tinies, clothes for tinies and music instruments.

Some nice stores, a photostudio and land for sale. I am tempted on the land.


I found lots of snowmen in the sim too.

Extrovirtual also has stores, homes, Museum of Raglan History, a park, and a hospital.

The museum is managed by a friend of mine Xavier Felwitch.


The Museum of Raglan History was opened in the Spring of 2008 to showcase past events held amongst the ever-expanding community of Raglan.

Many events, including the Medieval Festival and Mardi Gras were such lively and fun events that Xavier Felwitch decided to open the museum and put memorabilia from these events and many more onto display.

The exhibits will continue to grow and change as many more events are created and enjoyed and will ask to be remembered for new tinies to enjoy or for other tinies to reminisce.

CRITICAL NOTICE to all Artist and Gallery Owners!

CRITICAL NOTICE to all Artist and Gallery Owners!

There is an extremely serious permissions bug that has been confirmed by quite a few people (including myself with my own eyes).

The problem: objects nested inside other objects are getting reset to FULL PERMISSIONS when rezzed. The problem is with permissions on objects INSIDE other objects. When a customer buys, for example, a boxed item, and rezzes the items inside the box, they are RESET TO FULL PERMISSIONS when rezzed on the ground.

This does not (and this is just *my* understanding) affect things you can't rez, like scripts. I've tried it myself and can't get any scripts to reset to full perms. It appears to happen when you rez a rezzable object in world, not just by copying to your inventory.

This is not a Server 1.27 ONLY problem. Reports are that it affects 1.26 and 1.27. It is not a client problem. Problems have been reported with different client versions, and reports seem to indicate it's a server problem, not a client problem. None of this is confirmed.

The problem is easily reproduced by using the new bulk permissions feature, HOWEVER there are many reports of nested objects getting permissions reset that were created BEFORE that feature appeared. So it appears at this point NOT to be a bug limited to the bulk permissions feature. Again, not confirmed.

For more info, see https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-4444

Here's what to do, and I'd recommend you do this IMMEDIATELY!

Rez all your things that you sell that contain other items (boxed products, etc.). Take all the nested items inside it out, one by one, and rez them. Check permissions of those items as they sit on the ground. Don't just copy them to inventory, that is not a good teset. If your items on the ground are NOT supposed to be full permissions, you have been bitten by the bug. CHECK EVERYTHING.

If you purchase an item from someone, rez it, and it's full perms, be a hero and NOTIFY THE CREATOR IMMEDIATELY and let them know to pull their items off the shelves asap until they can fix this. You might get a nice freebie for being a hero :)

HOW TO FIX
There is no confirmed, reliable fix. There are reports that manually resetting the permissions one by one (do NOT use bulk permissions button) will fix the problem, and it does appear to, but there is NO guarantee they will STAY that way. We don't know how they got messed up in the first place, so it may certainly happen again to your objects. The only reliable fix until we have more info is to pull your items off the market and not sell them. This is something you may consider doing to avoid having valuable items sold as full perm, if that hasn't happened to you already :( However, there have been no reports of someone manually setting permissions *recently* and seeing them reset to full permissions, so perhaps this is a good fix. We do not know for sure yet. It may very well be a bulk permissions bug, which is a new feature, after all.

-Sasun Steinbeck

Around the Grid in 30 days: Quasimodo

Today's sim is Quasimodo. It's a private estates type sim so I won't post the SLurl.
I took some pics but did not find any note cards of information on the place.



Two world collide?


Gemini Endfield and Richardus Raymaker and I all help a fellow Goony and kid avie out at NCI.

I should explain. riddarholm Andel in the SLC chat was asking for free boys hair.
So I told him about NCI's freebie wall. I tp'd from Raglan to NCI to help out. Gemini and Richardus both followed the link I put in the chat and we all helped out.

Richardus and Gemini stayed for a bit. I think Richardus got some freebies but didn't tell.

I hope they come back again.

30 sims in 30 days: OSHO SL MEDITATION ISLAND

Todays sim: OWOKUN Meditation Island

Everything from astrology basics to poetry reading to Osho Discourse Stream.
I came here a few times as a kid avie and no one minded.


Here's more information:

OSHO SL MEDITATION ISLAND

At Osho Meditation Island you can celebrate, meditate, practice yoga, experince spirituality, attend courses, get healing, watch videos, read books, relax and connect with friends.

This is a place where you can simply relax and where you can also enjoy the company of other visitors of all ages from over 100 countries. You can choose to do something, to rest, swim, meditate or just be.

You can learn simple Osho Active Meditations: techniques specifically designed for the contemporary, over-charged mind and stress-impacted body.

You may like to nourish your body-mind-soul with a stunning selection of individual sessions, like bodywork and massage or longer workshops and courses — all designed to help you become more aware of yourself.

The key to relaxation is awareness: being a keen observer of all that is going on both inside and around us. This is the inner science, often also called meditation.

And while we each walk this walk alone, it is more supportive and more fun to share the process with others, whether during the various daytime activities or in the evening — trying out a new meditation technique, or enjoying an evening a party, dancing, watching or participating in live theater events or just going to the movies.

Above all, this is a unique environment created through the awareness, humor, and celebration that each of us brings to the table.


Reception is an important place to visit on the island. Here you will find info about the island, events and classes, a sign you can touch to visit our website and another sign that will tell you how to join the OWO & KUN group to keep up to date with what is happening here.

You can also join the OWO & KUN group by doing the following:
1. Paste the following link into chat:
secondlife:///app/group/78858cc9-02e7-3a51-6d0c-ed6a88bcd163/about
