Linden Labs to destroy Sailing and Aeronautical interest in SL

It’s funny, last spring LL began allowing the sale of single open space sims (voids) and doubling their prim counts. Fine and dandy I suppose. It only encouraged people to get their won little slice of heaven in SL and have a sim of their own. Then LL began having second thoughts, people were doing lots of things in these void sims they were not originally intended for. In their questionable wisdom they’ve decided to lower the boom jack the prices up which will make them unattractive. From $75 to $125 a month tier. That’s pretty damn harsh indeed. But what really sucks is that many estates still use the open space sims for their intended purpose. Namely several sailing and Flying themed sims. Many of them have voids that are not sold, have only landscaping and are primarily used to support an active community of vehicle users, be they sailboats, planes, or cars. These voids were supported by tier collected on the full sized sims in the estate. An extra $50 USD tier per void is going to break the bank and cause these states to collapse. They will not be able to afford all their voids and will have to abandon them. With little or no room to drive a vehicle around they lose their appeal and will lose residents.

In this day of financial turmoil jacking the prices on voids is stupid. The very estates  using the voids for the expressed purposes they were created for will be the most affected. Way to go Linden Labs. An absolutely stupid F***ing move.


Looking for input

10 Years of accumulating MP3s, 4 years of microbroadcasting and 2 years of streaming has witnessed my MP3 collection grow from nothing to over 6100 tracks. My music is mostly mainstream  pop and rock from the 60s,70s, and 80s. Lately my newer acquisitions skew towards 60s and 70s tunes. So much so I think I am starting to sound like an oldies station. As far as I care the 80s aren’t oldies yet and I am looking beef up my selections for that decade. I am looking for input as to songs and artist I can add to the playlist the next year. To see what kind of music I play I invite you to see my current playlist at http://www.konastream.com/playlistA.html

If it fits my format and I find it listenable I’ll consider adding it. You can email me at :

Two Years of Streaming into SL

12 October marks the second anniversaty of streaming into SL for me. I began with East End Radio back in SLNE, which was known and “The East End” at that time. From October til February I was the home station for the estate providing music and airing the voices of the various residents as station IDs. My current station, KONA Radio plays in the SLNE estate and I will be hosting a special event from 3:30PM to 5:00 PM SLT at the Nantucket Theater. I’ll be playing special songs, telling stories, and handing out free Tshirts. If you are a KONA fan or were around when EER was active, please come on by and join us!

Katy, Cobalt, Gwen, and a much younger me!
