Goony island changes to a homestead

Goony Island, home of the well loved Nemo beach this week changed from an Openspace Sim to a Homestead. What this means is that we are only allowed up to 20 people on the island at one time and have to pay more tier. The reason for the extra tier has still not fully been explained yet. In the 3rd quarter of this year Linden Lab will possibly introduce a means to regulate script usage on sims, but its my guess that by then everything will have changed. For all the time i have been in SL Linden Lab have continually mouthed off at Second Life's scaleability. This clamp down on openspace and regulation of script use and Avatar presence shows all to well that they have hit a wall and are now pulling back.



Anyway, to show the goony defiance against the Hand of Lab we had a party as we often do, and by jove it was a good party. I colaberated with Goony neighbour Richards from Rapscallion. We made a dance floor over rickety old planks bridging the two Homesteads and managed to get a party of nearly 30 people. Just goes to show what ever Linden Lab try to do to spoil our fun, we'll find the cracks and exploit LOL :)

GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!
