The 1920s Berlin project will be celebrating it’s 6th anniversary in Second Life on Friday 29th May until Wednesday 3rd June 2015. There are six days of events and entertainment that you don’t want to miss this year. Everyone is invited to come along and have fun. See below for the full schedule and spread the word. :)
On this day everyone is welcome to visit our sim and take a good look around and see more of the sim than you’re usually allowed to see.
Several of our tenants will also the doors to their private apartments and an ‘Open House’ sign will show you where you can enter and explore how the people in the city live.
The regular 1920s dress code is in place but being allowed to have a peek inside normally private residences is a lot of fun.

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.
Here is the replay of Ebbe Altberg presentation at SVVR 2015 which runs for 22 minutes. Ebbe talks about Second Life, the Oculus Rift, project SANSAR, The 1920s Berlin project and much more. It’s worth watching if you missed it or if you are interested in the latest developments.
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. :)

As many know already the famous SS Galaxy ship in Second Life closed down after 8 years earlier this month and the regions are no longer accessible. The closure marked the end of an era but there is exciting news on the horizon because it’s going to be modified so that Linden Lab can place it back inworld as a Museum soon.
The ship will be open for visitors in the near future and the ship will be preserved as a piece of Second Life history so thats the good news at the moment. More information will be released soon.
No previous management or crew will be aboard
No rentals or events will be hosted
The ship will exist in a museum state
Linden Lab takes ownership of the sims
On Tuesday 12th May 2015, DBDigital Epsilon who is the former Manging Director of SS Galaxy said this in a recent blog post…
Dear Supporters and Friends of the SS Galaxy,
There have been many rumors cycling regarding the Galaxy and what really happened. I can’t release that information as of yet. However, I can now say that the SS Galaxy has been acquired by Linden Labs and will return. She is currently undergoing retrofitting to sail under the Linden Labs flag. I have been tirelessly converting all the transferable prims I personally owned to Linden Lab ownership, and my part of the project is now complete.
Sadly being under Linden Lab’s flag also means that none of the previous management or crew will be aboard in any sort of capacity. I have also been told there will be no rentals or events. This means she will not quite be the Galaxy you know and love. But she will still exist in a museum state and be open for visitation in the near future.
More information will be released as I can. I wish to thank everyone again from the guests, to the staff, and beyond. You all made the Galaxy the special place she was, and no one can take that from us.
