New Premium Shiny
Yesterday the Lindens announced a new benefit for Premium Members. If you are Premium, your Transaction History will now reach back 90 days. Free members can reach back only 32 days. (No I don’t know why 32.)
With the announcement, we got some statistics.
There’s a ton of activity in Second Life’s L$ economy: every day, the Marketplace alone sees more than 20,000 unique buyers purchasing more than L$16,000,000 worth of goods from more than 15,000 unique sellers. That’s a whole lotta Lindens changing hands! And that’s not even including inworld transactions.
This is set of DAILY numbers. I suspect they are averages. Still, it is impressive.
This morning a roll was stared and then canceled. The system started overloading. At today’s Server-Scripting UG the Lindens did not yet know the cause. Rumor is RC regions were restarting too. But, that is unclear.
The problem will get sorted and a new roll will be attempted next week.
There is no RC roll this week.

The Lindens announced: Our support upgrade has been postponed! The upgrade which was meant to take place today [11/7] will now be scheduled for tomorrow 11/08 at 3:00pm PST. The upgrade will continue through Thursday Morning, when we plan to re-open our support site at 9:00am.
