Please help him out by coming by and seeing if there is anything you would like. There will also be a donation box set out if you want to help. Exodus also has a yard sale going of non-copyable items in the lot next to his store http://slurl.com/secondlife/Shiner/15/41/105 (and in a skybox above – look for the LM by the furniture) so be sure to check that out as well.

PURGAL ADGE MARKETS – MARKET STALLS FOR RENT
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

Do you make things and don’t know where to sell them? Have you ever wanted somewhere to market your goods on the Mainland? Would you like a market stall and pay no rent? I have purchased some land on the mainland and turned it into a market place.  All you have to do is to donate your 512 land allowance, choose a stall and away you go. Each stall carries a 50 prim allowance. If you want a stall, but do not have the land allowance available, then stalls are being rented for 160L per week for 50 prims.

Please contact SkydiverAnarta Fall or SkydiverColorado Calloway for further information.

HOMESTEAD SIMS ON OSGRID FOR $8,000L 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, some hosted sims equivalent to the homesteads in SL will become available.

If anyone would like to take on the last one 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. Thanks!

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).

CLAIREHAVEN ESTATES
Sandi Glas
From the notecard:

Clairehaven Estates was established in 2008 to create an affordable alternative to land ownership.  From the beginning, Veronicaa Ninetails and Sandi Glas have worked hard to provide a stress free place to live and play and relax, all within a libertine community of “family” who live together in peaceful coexistence.  We currently have five regions, and though they are not themed, each has a character all its own.  Land is available in a variety of sizes, and priced modestly to better help everyone develop the home of their dreams.  Contact us, or visit one of our properties today.  The landmarks below will take you to the tier boards for each region, and you can visit a land simply by clicking on the tier box and receiving the LM to that particular parcel or island.

Haven I & Haven IV tier boards: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20IV/70/180/401
Haven II tier board: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20II/1/221/601
Haven III tier board: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20III/74/6/601
Haven V tier board: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20V/154/144/601

SPECIAL OFFER:  Pay 4 weeks up front, or sign up for monthly billing and receive the home of your choice from award winning Glas Houses absolutely free!

CREATIVITY AND MENTAL HEALTH; DO YOUR DOMPAMINE LEVELS EXPLAIN WHY YOU’RE IN SECOND LIFE?

“…it’s not that Second Life and virtual worlds changes your brain chemistry, but rather people with a certain neurochemistry tend to be attracted to creating content and having an avatar.”

Interesting article and comments on this subject. The comments are particularly interesting.
