Contributed by Shauna Skye If things look a bit crazy today it’s because I’m giving slFIX a new look. So pardon the dust. I’ll have it looking presentable shortly.
Contributed by Shauna Skye In real life you might hear of struggling bands, starving musicians playing their hearts out for a small amount to feed their family. I understand. I have been in a band, and it’s safe to say I know a few musicians. In Second Life, however, I would dare say most musicians [...]
Contributed by Paypabak Writer Pay and Dreams were at it again! They found a great new store that sells wonderful treehouses and homes along with a very clever landscape accessory no island owner with ocean front property should be without! What appear to be nicely wrought reefs, isles, and sandbars are actually outside-of-sim additions! Yes, [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye SLFix’s Yamarontoast Dagger has come out with another cool item: a message board! What brought this on? Well, I bought a message board for SLFix HQ, and Toastie took one look at it and said “I can do better.” Within one day I received a new board with more features and [...]

Contributed by Shauna Skye Ok this is not at all helpful. I have no landmark to give you, no item for you to find, no interesting place for you to visit or actual news. These pictures of Magdalena Bing and I just make me laugh.
Contributed by Paypabak Writer The grounds below the Lost World Gallery described in this month’s ROLE magazine article by Looker Lumet, made me think of Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Tomb Raider movies and games. Lush jungles and ancient ruins, massive arcane structures, and dank basements: perfect settings for adventures of the imagination. [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye The first event for my new place at the SLFix HQ will be held by the Penny Lanes hosting a Beatles party. (“We’re not a real band, we just dress like one.”) Come join Lucy in the Sky, Lovely Rita, Sexy Sadie (our new drummer), and me Dear Prudence, for two [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye I’ve opened up a 25L Arcade at the SLFix HQ. All games are just 25 lindens to play: zyngo, daazy, Area 51 . . . and there’s a freeplay zyngo with 100 lindens in the pot. If you’re not keen on games you’re welcome to just hang out on the couches [...]
Contributed by Paypabak Writer I love SLFix! Shauna Vella started this feature about blogs/bloggers recently and then there is this shitstorm of blogging about the death of Rheta Shan by many of the most-respected bloggers in SL. Talk about timing! Emotions running strong and a troll named Prokovy Neva stirs the pot with doubt and [...]
Contributed by Paypabak Writer I’ll just say up front that I receive commissions on the products I’m about to review for you as I handle customer service for them. If you want to read a less-biased opinion, I give you Crap Mariner’s recent blog. Crap is a talented Second Life programmer in his own right, [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye Free*Style is a blog dedicated to freebie fashion in Second Life. It’s updated regularly, and a nice place to find zero linden clothing if you’re female, though I see guy stuff now and then. The tagline for Free*Style is “….apparently helping to ruin the Second Life® economy since 2007″ which is [...]
Contributed by Shauna Vella Have you ever been muted in Second Life? Have you ever muted a griefer? How about a “friend”? The mute button is a handy way to spare yourself from annoying objects, irritating people, griefers and ex-partners who piss you off. How To Mute Someone 1. Right click the person or object. [...]
Contributed by Paypabak Writer A week or so ago, I was given a landmark by a work colleague to an event called “Horns for a Hundred Thousand.” The benefit was held for Project Jason and included an auction and various raffles, plus a tour of several stores that carried items sold for donations to the [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye I have decided to feature one Second Life site or blog a week here at SLFix. But before I get underway with this I am curious to hear from you. Aside from SLFix, what Second Life blogs do you like to read and why? Do you yourself have a site dedicated [...]

Contributed by Shauna Skye Something I noticed long ago even before Second Life is that often the people who moan the loudest about how they hate drama are usually the ones causing it. The culprits often say things like “I just come to Second Life for fun” or “Second Life is just a game” and [...]
