I had to agree to the new terms of service before logging in today, and at a more detailed than usual reading of terms of service, they look a lot better. I appreciate that Linden Lab need to be given rights as they are effectively republishing work. I felt that the previous terms were a […]
The last post featured Annwn Willows, and Joanna Corith has just announced that it will be closing on the 26th June. So you have less than a week to go see it, and I’m going to take this as a good excuse to share another shot from when I was there last. Such is Second […]
