Cake Against Cancer In Second Life For Macmillan Coffee Morning

An Image Should Be Here

I am a little late posting this but there’s still time to enjoy cake in Second Life because today is Cake Against Cancer day, courtesy of Prim Perfect and Cheertopia and all for a very good cause.

The event is part of a bigger event, the biggest coffee morning in the world, organised by the UK Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Cakes Are Not a Lie
Today’s event will start at 1pm SLT at Prim Perfect HQ, where DJ Elrik Merlin will be spinning the tunes until 3pm and then the event moves to Cheertopia, home of the Second Life Cheerleaders who will be holding a bake sale for the cause.

Prim Perfect have been holding Macmillan Coffee Mornings in aid of this cause since 2013 and have raised over £540.00 (over US$720) through the sale of virtual cake.

Linden Lab Issue Warning About Account Security and Inform Users About Potential Viewer Install Warnings

Linden Lab have blogged about a couple of important issues that could impact your enjoyment of Second Life. One is about account security, which is very important and the other is about potential warnings when you try to install Second Life, which contains helpful knowledge.

The account security blog post; An Important Reminder About Account Security, informs us :

It has come to our attention that some Residents are sending messages – which may appear as popup windows in some viewers – informing other Residents that their accounts have been compromised and encouraging them to contact Support, using a phone number that is not associated with Linden Lab.

These messages are phishing attempts to gain access to your Second Life account. Neither Linden Lab, nor Second Life Customer Support, would attempt to contact you in this manner.

Please make sure you are aware of this issue, the blog post from Linden Lab contains links to support, so it’s well worth taking a look at the post.

Rustuica

Maxwell Graf, in the form of Maxwell Graf at least, arrived in Second Life in October 2006, so he’s no stranger to the medium and has made good use of it.

Maxwell, sometimes sporting a funny hat or headgear, sometimes sporting a droopy moustache, but mostly sporting a laugh and smile has been to many events in between creating, throwing snowballs in years gone by.
