Oh my, we went miniature for this race on a special track with obstacles, boats, mine car rides, shrooms, under hill, over dale etc. One of the more challenging courses I have gone through! (I know where I am in this picture but won’t tell you, lol)

There were some inventory issues over the weekend and they are doing a database restore which is taking some time. I just checked and even the forums are down right now.

UPDATE ON STRATEGY AND CALL FOR IN-WORLD MEETING
Philip Linden

“When I spoke at the seventh-birthday celebration, I said how we  needed to ‘tear down the walls’ that broadly keep more people from  getting into and using Second Life.  We have created together (both  Linden Lab and the many of you who create content and experiences) an  amazing shared experience which at it’s best is a breathtaking social,  creative, educational, and entrepreneurial platform.  But we’ve gotten  ahead of ourselves.  We still have a lot of hard work to do to make this  experience accessible to a majority of people.  At a very high level,  we’re slowing down work that we think we’ve started too early or in the  wrong order, and refocusing our team and projects on improving the basic  features which impact all users and which are essential to the  operation of Second Life.  Additionally we will focus on faster  iteration with more input from the community, as well as greatly growing  the virtual marketplace.”

“Before the end of July, we will  also hold an in-world gathering where we can  talk more about these  plans and take questions. More details about how  we can best  get a big group together and talking will be coming in  another post.”
