What’s Going On?

I just saw on Twitter that SL has suspended new registrations????  Is this the beginning of the end?

    I was just on Twitter… I didn’t see anything about that.  And the main SL page seems to be accepting new registrations from what I can see.

    Where did you read this exactly?

    Okay, now I smell Griefers…

    They have a server migration listed on the calendar.  It may be a temporary measure as they back up files and get ready for the move.

    I would reserve the panic until something more substantial comes along.

    Looks into the crowded fire and yells, “Theatre!!”

    Am I allowed to panic now? Or shall I wait for later?

    I’m with Jed on this, panic later.  Surely if they were planning on shutting the grid down the rumors would far precede the actual event.

    According to the Grid status, issue resolved.  You may return to your non-SL related panic attacks.

    They turn off new registrations often when fixing server issues.

    As far as SL is concerned, I’d say we’re still firmly in the end of the middle.

    Twitter ain’t a super neato source of needful news, methinks.

    i think the only time I’ve read anything on Twiter was when Conan O’Brian had a twitter page after his show ended


    and that was more for entertainment than news

    Well, ultimately, the news came from the grid status blog.  I just read about it on Twitter.

    Grendel, I made the mistake of following Kevin Smith on Twitter, and I am convinced beyond a resonable doubt that that man has no life.  He has even less of a life than I do, and that is saying something.  Besides, I am a cartoon character that exists within a virtual reality.  How much of a life am I supposed to have.

    had a newbie show up just today in Caledon Tinyville in the middle of a Tiny Riverdance flash mob – brand spanking new biggie!

    we was nice and lets him go after giving him LM for new residents.

      Tiny Riverdance flash mob”

      Suddenly finding myself loving life. And recalling my term paper on the Dada Manifesto.

    Citizen Gearbox, the eternally vigilant are to be admired.  This is something to watch.  Let not your heart be troubled.

    ::rubs her eyes with a sigh:: People have been doing panics like this for years. It is not a permanent and just a maintenance thing. Just on a side note as well, and not to be a nitpicker, but wouldn’t this have been better suited to the OOC forum area?
