Great book. I've probably read it four times and listened to Wil Wheaton read it five times. Definitely going to check out Aech's livingroom. :) Thanks!

Sans and I just paid a visit and discovered that unless you are one of Baldtraveller's friends, you are confined to a space that lets you view the basement, museum-style. A trifle disappointing.


Yeah -- you can't actually go hang out. You're welcomed by ban lines and under construction signs. That's a shame; I'd love to go hang out with more fans of the book.

Opps. I forgot to turn that off. It used to be a private build area for my store. All fixed.

Heard about the book here from your blog Hamlet picked up a copy and enjoyed it. A lot of cool ideas for a future metaverse.

UPDATE: I have taken that problem that i had with the security and in the spirit of the book create a bit of a game out of it. Now when you arrive you again will not be able to get strait in. You will need to complete a game within Secondlife in order to get into the Aech's Basement. Its not real hard but give it a shot. Im sure it will evolve in time.


Just played through the challenge to gain entry to the basement and it was great! Thanks for the hard work Bald, you rock! RPO is such a great book!
