The workaround for this unexpected magical glitch on Linden Lab’s billing system is to enter your credit card details again.

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.

Saffia Widdershins has posted a blog about a serious situation : Can You Help Maxwell Graf and Lyrric Fei of Rustica?
Maxwell and Lyrric are in a very unfortunate and serious situation and if people can spare a bit of time to read Saffia’s post it would be appreciated.
I am not going to go into the details of the post here, but I will talk a little about Maxwell and his work in Second Life and beyond.
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.

Inspired by Inara Pey’s blog post; Visiting ~Neive~ In Second Life, I decided to follow in Inara’s footsteps and visit Neive in Second Life.
Inara had informed us about the region :
~Neive~ is a Homestead regions designed by Claudia (claudia74a Orsini) which Caitlyn and I first visited in late June 2017, when it still appeared to be under construction. We dropped back there at the start of September to see how things had developed, and found the region has grown into a quite pastoral – if slightly eclectic – setting.
This description is extremely accurate.
The notecard that you can accept when you land in the region informs us that the region was first created in 2016 and is now back, with romance and friendship in mind.
