SL12B fireworks show marks the end for live performances

SL12B performances end
SL12B performances end with huge firework show

To mark the end of the live performances at SL12B Community Celebration Bewell Ormega put on a huge fireworks show between 11:30pm SLT (28th) to 12am SLT¬†(29th) at the SL12B Stunning Cake Stage. It was really amazing to attend the final event of SL12B and I have to say I have loved this year’s birthday celebrations from start to end.

Thanks to all the organisers for the best party yet. ūüôā

The Linden talks I thought worked really well along with the SL12B music festival. I enjoyed exploring with the SL12B raptor avatar and sharing adventures on my SL Flickr stream. The theme What Dreams May Come I liked and the builds were much better this year. The stages and live music was fantastic. The SL12B BIG Hunt continues until 4th July 2015.

The SL12B regions will remain open for viewing until Saturday 4th July 2015. This is a great time to visit the exhibits and explore before the sims go offline for another year.

Please share in comments your thoughts on SL12B! Thanks ūüôā



YadNi s Junkyard has closed down after 11 years in Second Life

YadNi s Junkyard 001
January 18, 2011

After 11 years the well known YadNi s Junkyard in Second Life has closed down which is a massive loss and very sad to see this landmark disappear. YadNi s Junkyard started back on 6th April 2004 and it was the first freebies store in Second Life history to launch. YadNi s Junkyard was one of the top favourite places for new residents to get freebies, getting started in Second Life and it was a good places to make new friends.

YadNi Monde posted this message on Google+ on June 23rd 2015.

YadNi s Junkyard has closed today.
After 11 years of helping Thousands new residents with REAL freebies, full perms, for free, and one of the most long lasting money trees, I had to close the place today.
I hope you have good souvenirs of that place.

It’s going to be hard to imagine what the grid will be like now without¬†YadNi s Junkyard but the memories will stay with us for sure. This is the end of an era and YadNi s Junkyard will be deeply missed by everyone.

Replay of Ebbe Linden talk at SL12B

On Friday 26th June 2015 Ebbe Linden was interviewed by Jo Yardley and Saffia Widdershins at the SL12B Auditorium.

There were more than 100 attendees at the talk and there were technical issues at the start.
