CAVERN EVENTS:

The D’ni Voice is looking for anyone who plans on running concurrent events in SL and in the Cavern.  Please send me information on a notecard (so I don’t forget, lol) with the following:

Event
Name(s): SL name and Cavern name and KI#
(this is because of the Nexus bug that drops hoods off the list so that folk have someone to contact if they want to get to the event but can’t)
Location: SL SLurl and Cavern Location
Times: SL time, KI time and any other reference time (some have been using Eastern US Time)
Feed or Streams: whether music will be on land server in SL or if available on shoutcast, winamp etc and URL.

I am hoping to get concurrent things in the Cavern Events thread as we know about them along with any weekly postings, though if you prefer to do that yourself you are certainly more than welcome to but please give me a heads up so I can make sure I add it to the blog and the in-world newsletter.

IDEA FOR CLASSES ON MYST AND URU HISTORY & THE STUDENTS OF D’NI KNOWLEDGE
DangerZone & DocOlanA – MOUL Forums

DangerZone is trying to put together some classes and teach the History of Myst and Uru. Additionally, DocOlanA is getting The Student’s of D’ni Knowledge going as well to have discussions about the D’ni history and culture. Both look to be very interesting projects.

THE CAVERN BOOK CLUB
Jamey Inventor
Tuesday, 1:00 – 2:00 PM SL and 2:00-3:00 PM KI time
Location: Cavern Book Club Bevin contact Jamey KI# 46415 if Bevin is not showing in Nexus.

Bring a copy of the Myst novels, as well as other Myst-related things that you’d like to read. Microphones are highly recommended if you want to read to everyone.

I started Uru Memory Gallery as a way for people to remember Uru and to attract new people to the worlds of Myst. With the happy return of MOUL right after I set it up, a “memory” gallery is no longer needed. I’m now combining my love of art with my love of literature to remodel the gallery.

Over the next week or so, Uru Memory Gallery in the Tokatah Alley apartment will turn into the Frosted Myst Literature and Arts Gallery. You can already see how things will be changing. One section of downstairs area will remain dedicated to Gandhar. I’ve boxed up his posters I’ve made so far and have them available for a small price. All proceeds from Gandhar’s posters will go to Cyan to help support MOUL, with his daughter’s agreement that this is what he would have liked.

In addition, books and stories and poems will be available at my gallery locations. You can find six of my stories (as Diana Cacy Hawkins) there already, a few are free. And a stand for Myst related publications. Links to where you can find the three Myst novels are on top shelf, while books to click on for helpful hints for new MOUL explorers set below them. In the next few weeks, books from the Friends of the Fissure publications will be added to the Myst section.

Auto-Bans for CopyBot Clients

“Skills Hak has released a client detection and ban relay system which Hak says “detects all known viewers with copybot/griefing functionality” with no false positives.”

The remarks especially are quite interesting as some feel this is “zero tolerance justice” and banning simply based on the viewer you are using is unjust, whether you are doing anything illegal or not. It also begs the question of someone using a viewer and not realizing it is on the radar of this system. Results could get you banned from the area AND an abuse report to LL.

MASTER CLASS BY WIZARD GYNOID
DMom2K Darwin

Last night Burniversity held a Master Class where Wizard Gynoid explained how she makes her sculptures and what tools she uses to do that. We were given several types of rezzers so that we could go and experiment ourselves. These sculptures can be extremely prim heavy!
