Avia Bonne, a noted builder/creator and OSgrid resident, has mentioned more than once in the past few days in posts on Google+ that she has heard that the grid may be coming back online in the next couple of weeks. On Monday she posted a question about this on the OSgrid community on g+. The post received a reply from Key Gruin, an OSgrid admin and a moderator of the Osgrid community on g+. His reply follows:
Wish it could be more “official” than this, but here’s what Hiro (leTwitch) had to say on IRC #osgrid this morning US Central time:
“08:23 < steve_franklin> Hi Everyone!
08:23 < steve_franklin> Is OSG going to stay dead?
08:24 < steve_franklin> been dead a long time now!
08:26 < steve_franklin> I still have 2 servers keeping water sims going just in case but it just seems to be more and more a futile effort as I see no light at the end of the tunnel
08:27 < steve_franklin> my feeling is just get an asset server going and get it back up and we will go from there
08:57 < leTwitch> Thanks for the input steve_franklin, we’re holding out for the rest of the week, if something really positive doesn’t happen before then, we’ll probably just move forward with a blank asset server
08:58 < leTwitch> about your other question, OSg’s hardware is in a bit of a pickle atm, but the community is alive and well, and we’ll not be tolerating the state of affairs with the hardware much longer ;)
09:09 < steve_franklin> That is a good thing as I was getting worried- I really don’t want to loose OSG as it has been ny place for many years”

On 1 November, Winterfell celebrated it’s eighth anniversary in Second Life. The 19-region estate was established by Serra Anansi, known as Lady Twilight, and is now ruled by her daughter, Princess Selena. The Princess welcomed Winterfallen and guests and dignitaries from foreign lands to the brand new Rosehaven Castle, the seat of power, wisdom and magic.
Following a performance by the singer Russell Eponym, which this correspondent sadly was unable to arrive on time for, a Renaissance Faire was held.
The tents around the Fairegrounds displayed the wares of craftors and artisans as well as attractions such as the tarot card reader. There were competitive games as well, including darts and mud wrestling.
The grand finale of the celebration was the Masquerade Ball at Rosehaven Castle with music provided by Lady Gabrielle Riel and simulcast on Radio Reverie.
Congratulations to Lady Twilight and the Princess on eight wonderful years of rule over a most beautiful land and for the great success of the anniversary festivities. A good time was had by all. Including this fellow…
Who was that masked man?
