Greetings From Bodega Island
LL's network went partially down taking 200+ sims out. I was at home in Bodega when I noticed the sim was struggling and said that in IM to Jensel (who was in Isabel at the Shelter). She said Wingo had gone down in the middle of Travis's show -but apparently they just reconvened in Isabel (on the other side of the room) and continued. Bodega was an island as Bolinas, Davenport, and Palomarian were out, however I didn't really pay attention to Mohrr (the void sim north of me) and when Salazar, who was scouting round, asked me if it'd been down (as it was up at that point) I really wasn't sure. Strangely my radar HUD displayed Enjah as being nearby at one point - I shouted thinking she was in the sim, but it was... a ghost, apparently.
Now I don't want to log out in case I can't get back in. Update for tomorrow was cancelled which is too bad, however it means at least the grid will be open. I bet LL is happy they decided to postpone it as they hadn't anticipated this network crash. Forcy said: "It must be hot in California."
Tiff came at 2:30 in rl to see the play rehearsal. First about 5 soldiers wearing sandwich boards dropped onstage and kept begging us to click their signs. I clicked one which gave me an advertising notecard for a gunsmith, then said, "We can't click on you as then you will come back." I could've said, "We can't click on you or you will never leave" I asked Salazar to come, which he did, very kindly. I asked the boys to leave which they didn't quite manage to do. We had already explained we were trying to rehearse a play, so Salazar limited access of the land to those involved with the play.
Then, as it turned out, Luc was kept from rehearsal by something, so we just talked a bit about things then I logged and Tiff and I ate lunch and talked. She left and I leapt inworld late to a meeting with Doc and a prospective marketeer.
