SciEye: The SciLands Are Moving! But not Spaceport Bravo

October 12, 2009

SPNN News, Spindrift isle, the SciLands, Second Life – Your SciEye columnist says the SciLands are moving again, this time next to the adjacent University of Texas [UT] education continent.  Today, Monday, October  12th, is  the scheduled day for the Lin, represented by Dee Linden, to lift and land 62 of our science, technology, engineering, and math isles.

[Update 7pm SLTMonday Oct 12th] 

“We’ve moved!
[18:27]  Dee Linden: (Saved Mon Oct 12 18:30:58 2009) 63 regions moved
today, Paradox

Many many thanks to Dee for saving us from 63-ticket purgatory!-Paradox”

[Update Tues 10am SLT – the Map has updated!]

Your LMs [landmarks] will still be good, but you will have to manually revisit and reenter any of your Profile personal Picks again.

More updates as events unfold …

[Disclaimer: I’m the SciLands POC (Person/Point of Contact) to both UT and LindenLab for this move.]

In a related story, the International Spaceflight Museum [ISM] is leaving Spaceport Bravo behind in the SciLands move, and announced that it is for sale by auction.  “Kirra Ball donated the isle and 2 years rent/tier, but after that wonderful donation ran out in the spring of 2009, visitor and volunteer  staff donations were never   enough to pay for Spaceport Bravo.  It is with the greatest reluctance that the ISM Board of Directors voted this weekend to put the isle up for sale,” is my  comment as ISM Director and President.

Gus Plissken /SL name is handling the transaction, with an ISM BoDirectors  waiver: “Resolved, that Fred Fuchs and/or Firesabre Consulting be authorized to act as agent for the ISM Corporation in marketing and selling the sim, Spaceport Bravo, and should be indemnified against any claims of conflict of interest for the purposes of performing this service for the Board.”
