SL MARKET DAY EXPO
DeAnn Dufaux
April 17 to April 29
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Austerity/158/54/983  *please be advised this is an adult area
Pick up some great bargains here, watch the fashion shows and listen to some great DJ music.  DeAnn, Kerryth and Ishtar are participating in the Market Day Expo. For ongoing events during the Expo see in-world newsletter for  an addtional notecard on the events.

From the notecard:

~:|:~ What is Market Day? ~:|:~

In many real life communities of any size, you can find merchants gathering in a downtown or town square area for at least one day a week. Oftentimes, they vend fresh foods straight from a farm or seasonal items right before a holiday. On these days, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we will have vendors from all product and service areas come together on a single sim to demonstrate a sense of community not only among the merchants of SL, but with residents new and seasoned. When possible entertainment or music will be planned that fits the first three themes we’ll experiment with in future Market Days. The market will last an entire 24 hours from SL midnight to SL 11:59 pm on the given market days. Market Day will usually be monthly except as indicated in News.

HOMESTEAD SIMS ON OS GRID FOR $8000L PER MONTH
Dot Macchi

As you might know, the Devokan team has been building on the open-source OSgrid over the past few months. In the next couple of weeks, we will be moving the builds on Devokan Waysmeet and Devokan Deepwater to two home-hosted sims.

This will free up two hosted sims equivalent to the homesteads in SL.

If anyone would like to take on one or both of these, the cost will be
*** 8k lindens per month per sim ***

This will include full land rights, including terraforming. Each sim will have about 4k prims to use. The sims are Hypergrid enabled. On the OSgrid, it is free to upload textures, sounds and animations, and megaprims can be made as needed. Avid, original builders can have great fun for very little cost! On the other hand, the software behind OSgrid is alpha software, so you can expect to crash and experience some difficulties teleporting on occasion. If you are interested, please contact me by 9 May 2010. Thanks!

Dot Macchi
Developments in Devokan: http://blog.devokan.net

How to get to OSgrid
1 Register an account at http://www.osgrid.org/elgg/   (name and password)
2 Download Hippo viewer software at http://www.osgrid.org/elgg/pg/utilities/software
3 Install Hippo and run it, logging on to OSgrid using the name and password you set up at step 1.

Don’t be put off by the ugly default avie — or, if you are male, by the fact that the default is female. This happens to everyone, and people are happy to help you out. There are LOTS of freebies available — OSgrid takes pride in its open-source credentials.

To find regions built by the Devokan team, use the Map as you would in SL and search for any of the following:
Devokan
curiosity
Nalands

You will be able to fly from any of these to the other regions (there are more than 8 altogether).
