Strange though it may seem, we've just bought a private island in the virtual world of Second Life - "RnR Island", joining the likes of Toyota, the BBC, CNN, Reuters, Sun Microsystems and a million and a half people in this wierd view of the future (?). See: www.secondlife.com http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/help/3681938.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6137424.stm http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=53451.html The idea is to start with a virtual Rum Ration Diamond Lil's and ARRSE NAAFI Bar, and see where it all leads. If you're thinking we're mad / WTF are you talking about, don't worry. If you're interested in the potential of this, have time, some IT / design skill and want to get involved, we need volunteer builders to start building and decorating the respective bars and then on from there. [email protected] if interested! This shows how it's done: http://secondlife.com/showcase/ As an aside ARRSE got taken away from the server that runs the Rum Ration backend this morning, so the site should have been a lot faster today for those on wide broadband at least.
