Email invite to Frame from Bright Canopy


Bright Canopy

On 25th May I received the long anticipated email try out Frame from Bright Canopy. Frame makes it easy to run any software in a browser. Firstly I activated my account and signed in to the Frame Launchpad.

I received two hours (120 minutes) of free credit to get things rolling and the service seems to be running very smoothly for my first visit. I had a choice of either using the official Second Life viewer or the Firestorm Viewer to log into Second Life.

So far so good. :)

ScarletCSkylaC has passed away


I’m really sad to hear that ScarletCSkylaC (Amy) passed away after battling with cancer on Thursday 21st May 2015. ScarletCSkylaC was a friend of mine on Plurk and I enjoyed reading her plurks. ScarletCSkylaC had a really kind heart and soul that touched so many in Second Life/via Plurk.

ScarletCSkylaC will be deeply missed and may she rest in peace. Much love to her family and all her friends at this time. :(

Over 55 avatars attended Bay City’s Seventh Anniversary on Sunday 17th May 2015. The parade was great fun down route 66 and the music concert in the North Channel region was excellent from start to end. I can’t wait for next year’s Bay City’s 8th anniversary. :)
