Today has not been a great day in House Pey where real life is concerned From a morning filled with opportunities and plans to an evening with not a little frustration and general “Grrrrr-iness”.
I shan’t bore you with the details. Suffice it to say the oven completely dying yesterday (after being decidedly wobbly for the last few days) didn’t help, and I’m not even going to mention the toilet seat in the en suite bathroom. No, really. I’m not.
Instead, I’ll bore you with some minor SL trivia, given it is June and the 10th anniversary celebrations are looming closer.
We all know that the very first beta resident on record was Stellar Sunshine. Her name is recorded, along with all those of the beta participants at the Beta Participants wall in Plum. Her account is still active, and she still logs-in from time-to-time.
But do you know the very first “officially recorded” SL account?
The belonged to Phoenix Linden who, Andrew Linden told me (and by “me”, I mean “everyone attending the Simulator User Group meeting on Tuesday June 4th” :)), was implementing the databases at the time, and so his was the first account to be recorded. Prior to the work Phoenix carried out, SL didn’t have persistent authentication or records.
So there you go!🙂
Anyone else have snippets of trivia they’d like to share which may be rare or new to others? Feel free to post a comment.
