Mark is selling DarkLife.
Way back in '04 I was exploring on one of my first days in SL and met Tedd, who explained to me that one could opt to not have titles show, and I took that advice to heart.* He was working on DarkLife and took me over there, where I met Pirate. Pirate said, "Make some clothes for DarkLife," so I did. I had a shop and a house. Because of that I got involved with SimCast - I was recruited by YadNi - which was less happy for me, but for which I created prolifically for a time. Mark and Pirate (I think both) as well as Prong from SC were sent to the GDC in SF by LL, and I talked to both PC and PT while they were there. Afterwards PC said, "I was going to thank you for doing something that I noticed when I was at the GDC but I was drunk at the time and can't remember what it was." Ha! I know what it was, though.
Because of PC I was in an in-world game dev group and wound up answering a group chat call in 2005 for someone to come help test Sim Combat, which turned into Combat Cards.
SC went belly-up in a big row, but DL plugged on. It was remodeled (took forever) and I stopped having a shop/house, but it had a loyal fanbase. I'd go and look in on it every once in a while. PC left ages ago and just pops up once in a blue moon. But - DarkLife twines around my SL history, so it's a milestone, a bit, that it's being sold.
* The first person I met was Hiro, who told me that he thought that wide trouser-legs never looked right. I asked him what the "strange knitting motions" were, and he did that belly laugh (the one I removed from my repertoire within the first week and never went back to) and explained that it was typing.

Interesting. I haven't thought about DL for a long time. I remember tooling around there way back when with a couple old friends. Good times.
