I've found by chance a newspaper on a sim from which I haven't heared anything before. It's called the Seventh Sun and available as in world edition and on the homepage as well. Looks quite good to me.
There's been a planet for SL based news around for some weeks already, I forgot the URL, but now again stumbled upon it, so without much further adago I present you World of SL. It belongs to Tao Takashi aka mrtopf.de.
Motorbike clubs are not uncommon, but this one has a twist: it's a biker club for bikers in Second Life - the Hellfire Motorcycle Club! It's strictly virtual and just exists in SL at all.
I cant believe that someone would go so low as to Ban a person from their dream business. Dil and Charity built Phat Cats out of pure love and hard work. to ban these two loving people is beyond belief. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Dil and Charity you are very near and dear to me not only in SL but RL now too. I love you both and I will always be there for you.
Big drama in the making, it seems.
Something that just happened to me at Phat Cat's:
[13:01] X: Are you a homo?
[13:01] Bartholomew Gallacher: Now what's that kind of a pickup line? That's lame.
[13:01] X: Jeez, apologies
[13:02] X: you just look like a raving woofter
[13:02] Bartholomew Gallacher: If you'd taken the short time to look at my profile you'd know that I'm partnered up with a lovely wife.
[13:03] X: Beared wedding if you ask me
The nerves of some people; such behaviour cries out for "mute me for a lifetime!"
The until now beta tested voice feature of the First Look client has gone into the main client. Thus it is enabled everywhere and now mainstream.
The use of voice is always going to be optional, and estate owners can disable it, if wanted, but it's now there and without any extra charge at all for the sim owners, as it seems.
While some couldn't await the arrival of this feature into the main client any longer, others are still sceptical about it and/or don't want to use it at all. Consider it working under Mac OS X and Windows, but not under Linux yet.
It's simply not working under Linux because the proprietary binary that's needed to connect to the servers of Vivox is still non existant, meaning what you've got under Linux there is an empty shell so far.
