January 2014                                       Issue #34
***************************************************

WELCOME to the thirty-forth issue of the Bay City Post! -Keeping you updated on the best city on the grid.

Should Old Labs maintenance be forgot,
and never code’d upon;
The flames of sLove now ticketed,
JIRA passed and now is gone:
Is thy server now grown so cold,
that loving Grid of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect (and by reflect we mean post a pic on the feed)
On Old login screen.
On Old login screen my alt,
On Old login screen,
That thou canst never once redirect,
On Old login screen.

My philosophy in life is this: always strive to make *new* mistakes. Repeating old ones gets tedious.
Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Fourth Annual Event Celebrates Holiday Season 

The Bay City Annual Tree Lighting, concert and fundraiser was held Sunday, 8th December 2013 and featured GoSpeed Racer, Grace McDunnough, and Christov Kohnke. The event was held at the Bay City Fairgrounds, in North Channel.  There was ice-skating, dancing, refreshments and lots of fun! And hey! We only crashed the sim once \o/ …and had an almost immediate restart from the lab! Thanks Lab people!!!
The silent auction included items from Pygar Bu, Cory Edo of Trompe L'oeil, Loki Eliot, ADudeNamed Anthony of 2Zoetic Motors, Robin (Sojourner) Wood, Laetizia "Tish" Coronet, Marianne McCann, Pamela Galli of La Galleria, Zen Zarco of <:*BoOgErS*:>, Wildstar Beaumont, Zak from Bop!, Winter Ventura of Eclectic Randomness, Isley Oodles of Fraidy Cat Designs, Pallina60 Loon, Eden Malik, Ever Dreamscape, and Hendrix Portal, and others.

All proceeds from the silent auction and from donation bins at the venue (kiosks will remain up and ready for your donations until January  6th) will go to Child's Play Charity (www.childsplaycharity.org). Child's Play is a 501c3 non profit organization offers online communities such as ours an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment. To date $85,501 has been raised. Yay \o/

A sincere thanks to those who offered items, those who donated, those who entertained and those who came to the sim filled gala! Also, a big thanks to our decorators: Marianne McCann, Pygar Bu and Mr. Windlight himself>>>  Michael Linden, and of course the wonderful folks of the Bay City Alliance!!! Thank you ALL for you kind generosity!!!

     *****

Prims Ahoy!

This year’s annual lighted boat parade was hosted by Fenix Eldritch on Thursday, December 12th at the Bay City Fairgrounds North Channel. DJ GoSpeed Racer rocked some wintry tunes for onlookers and a skate party after the parade. The boats were all “decked” out holiday style as they drifted (crashed and ghosted) around the sound! We did have a most excellent and expedient turn around on the sim and the party partied on!! Gotta love that second sim for back up. Thanks Guvnor!!!

** Thank you Marianne McCann and Pygar Bu for a most excellent build at the fairgrounds, and Michael Linden for making things all snowy and windlighty there!!!

OSPREY THERIN MEMORIALIZED, HONORED

Osprey Therian mounts rescue mission while many mourn her creator's passage.
The person behind the avatar Osprey Therian, Vivian Kendall, passed away on the 9th of December. While her involvement with Bay City itself was limited (she organized a Nova Albion to Bay City parade before the original auctions and was party to come Hallowe'en events between us, Nova Albion, and the suburbs), her influence on Residents across the grid, including many in our fair city, is far-reaching.
A memorial was held on the 14th of December on Osprey's land in Bodega. Several attended to listen to Justin Esparza and Enjah Mysterio speak about Vivian.
In attendance, as well as Mysterio and Esparza, were a large selection of prominent avatars, including many from Bay City:Tozh Taurog, Amulius Lioncourt, Fenix Eldritch, Robin Sojourner, Stroker Serpentine, SensualMami, Arrehn Oberlander, Lucy Tornado, Patch Lamington, Wildstar Beaumont, Marianne McCann, Ilianexsi Sojourner, Pixleen Mistral, Rhiannon Chatnoir, Bixyl Shuftan, Monty Talbot, Torley Olmstead, TheaDee, Kumi Kuhr, Mossant Paravane, Gentle Heron, Prokofy Neva, Vick Forcella, RacerXGullwing, Francesca Alva, Molly Montale, Gomi Mfume, Holocluck Henly, Frans Charming, Avi Arrow, NikoKito Aries, Kennylex Luckless, Laetizia Coronet, Otenth Paderborn, Zayn Till, and Watrbabee Greymoon.
The next day saw Osprey Therian lead a heroic mission to hopefully rescue Salazar Jack. Her and a small group of brave adventurers, including our own Felix Eldritch, went through the anomaly in Rodeo in earch of Jack. Unfortunately, members of this team have not made contact since crossing through the portal.
Both were wonderful send offs for a person who had a very big hand in the creative side of Second Life, and who inspired many. She will be missed.

MOLE WATCH
by Marianne McCann

With the holidays upon us, the moles are nestled safely in their warm burrows, and not much seen on our side of the grid.

They have done a bit more holiday decorating, though a plan to tint the effluent of the water treatment plant to green and red seems to have been nixed .

They did do a boat removal in New Port: one that was stuck there, in the air, due to a current "selected/sat upon" auto return bug.

According to head mole, Michael Linden, there are "a bunch" of Bay City-related fixes in the works, but other projects of higher priority are creeping ahead. This will include trolley fixes would could see the overhaul of the entire trolley line. This would be a welcome repair for those who rely on our beleaguered and aging trolley system for local travel.


THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

January 2008 saw a high water mark, with SL hitting its highest concurrency. Over 88,200 were logged into Second Life at the same time. Plans then included increasing capacity for the 100,000 mark, expected by mid-year. 88,200 remains the high point to this day.
According to Linden Lab, Second Life Residents spent a total of 28,274,505 hours inworld in January of 2008. The average concurrency was 38,000 residents.  It is unclear how many of those Residents were 'bot accounts.

Bay City Welcomes Sailors!

This year’s annual lighted boat parade will be hosted by Fenix Eldritch and held on Thursday, December 12th from 7-9 PM SLT at the Bay City Fairgrounds North Channel. DJ GoSpeed Racer will be offering some wintry tunes for onlookers and a skate party after the parade. Come see the boats all “decked” out holiday style as they drift around the sound!

Got skates?! There are freebies at the fairgrounds so just bring a warm sweater and enjoy the wintry wonderland!

* Tip: if you don’t have a boat with lights or that mods, it’s fairly easy to create a string or two of lights that fit your boat and simply “attach to center” on your avi :D .

** Thank you Marianne McCann and Pygar Bu for a most excellent build at the fairgrounds, and Michael Linden for making things all snowy and windlighty there!!!

*** Side note: there is an ornament on the tree made by BlueGin Yifu, one by Osprey Therian (a long time Nova Albion person who is currently in hospice) and there are snowmen by Hyper Mole :-)

Bay City residents did an outstanding job of decorating for the autumn season, and it’s looking like winter is gearing up to be quite loverly as well. With so many vibrant citizens rezzing prims about town, some say it’s shaping up better than ever. Come have a looksee around.

Griefer Madness!?!

Poor griefers *sobs* between the lab responding vigilantly to grief reports, it seems many a grief has moved on. There was one that hadn’t yet got the memo about how attentive citizens are here, and was quite dismayed when he came to stir up some residents one night only to find that the residents merely took a seat and carried on. So sad I believe he was even mad!  Aww one supposes even griefers need love too. Let’s hope Santa brings him a nice legal script or too and he discovers the simple joy of snowball fights or the like. Merry SL M. Griefer :)

Been an angel nearly all of the year; oh dear

Santa honey, one thing that I really do need...

So hurry and IM me tonight

Santa cutie, let’s cut the lag and log on Newegg
Got the link here I’ll need your ID and password, Santa cutie,
So hurry and IM me tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree with a 5sixteen Samsung SSD
I really do believe in you;
Let's see if you believe in me...

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing... some bling...
And a couple of sims; Santa baby,
So hurry and IM me tonight

Oh So hurry and IM me tonight
Hurry, tonight!

A Mid-Autumn Afternoons Dream

Spring sprang, summer shined, winter welcomes, but I always fall for autumn.

Come play with me under the big oak tree and happily we’ll set our fancy free!”

BAY CITY ALLIANCE

In October, The Bay city Alliance passed its fifth anniversary as a group! The first meeting was 10th October, 2008 Only four members who attended the first meeting (out of 25) are still active in BC. One of the first action items was a welcome basket. BlueGin Yifu, founder of the Bay City Alliance, passed in October 14th, 2010, roughly two years after founding the Bay City Alliance.  She helped spearhead the sense of community, and community participation throughout Bay City.  To this day we still use a stage design she created for our annual Anniversary event.

Oktoberfest!
Oompa! We celebrated Oktoberfest at the Bay City Fairgrounds on Sunday September 22. There was fun, food, polka music with DJ rtyu193, … oh and BEER. All under the big blue and yellow tent. Thanks to Marianne McCann and Pygar Bu for another great build, to the Bay City Alliance for hosting this event, and to ALL the great guests who came out and polka’d their pants off!!!

New Olde Bay City Brewery Back!!

Yes the Bay City Brewery has been reassembled and is back in its former location in Argos, on Route 66, and across from the Bay City Department of Sanitation. Chief Brewmaster Ivan Suen has created some signature brews (and by signature we mean we’ll be needing your signature on a waiver before drinking any of the brew). The Brewpub is now open to the public, and is featuring live DJ’s on Most Saturday nights, some Fridays and occasionally after the Bay City Rumbles on Thursdays.

*Although some speculate the location adjacent to the Sanitation department is the cause of the signature green beers glow. We say… It’s Something in the Water!!!   ;/

Community Service Announcement

What a Character!

With the advent of advent… wait what? That’s a different month?? Ok lessee. With Halloween just around the corner, the moles are again coming to town to enhance some of Bay City’s spookier prims for your pixel enjoyment.



Let’s help welcome people with some avatastic entertainment and visit these sites to greet our ghoulish guests.



Seriously I myself love to role play and/or do a little “performance art” at the South Channel Asylum, the Falmouth Hotel, and at the hay maze in the Bay City Fairgrounds. It’s fun to dress up and “play” the role of a lunatic, a ghosted bell hop, a wicked witch or giant spider and more. So how ‘bout we costume up and make these builds come alive as guests pour into the city?!



Come reap the freaky fun!

WELCOME to the thirtieth issue of the Bay City Post! -Keeping you updated on the best city on the grid.

Labor Intensive

Labor Party, Labor Day… It’s been a long hot summer and it’s taken a lot of work to keep our pixels cool. In spite of our Hot Bay City Nights I think we’ve achieved just that. Bay City is growing and we’ve shared some hot times in this cool little coastal. Summer breezes by too fast, but it’s been one fine day here by the bay! I’d like to say thanks to all our friends old and new. Know that you are appreciated and we look forward to more great seasons full of fun and frolicks with you all!

A little ditty I found on the wall of a friend’s house I was um erm oh uh… totally not griefing if that’s what you’re getting at :o   :

No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn,
(edited below)
Warm with me this autumn or next summer you’ll get burned.

Hot Bay City Nights a BIG Sucess!

Bay City Hosts Second Annual Car Show!

Uccie Poultry-Seale gives it her all at the Car Wash

It was August and it was hot Hot HOT! What's better than hot rods, bikinis, music, dancing, drinks and dawgs?!? Nothing! That's what!!! Bay City hosted the grid’s most Rockin' vintage auto show... Hot Bay City Nights was held the last week of August at the Bay City Fairgrounds. There were six awesome vintage automakers with cars on display, music and dancing, a bikini contest, three charity car washes, and a Bay City Alliance welcome booth.



The charity car wash was held three times with hosts Benjamin Wahl, Nadia Soldya and Ever Dreamscape. Donations were raised for childsplaycharity.org, and a whopping L$83,550 was raised!!! Wow! "Your donations support seriously-ill children in hospitals by distracting them from their illnesses, and help them cope with fear, anxiety, and boredom." -Cameron Hosner - Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
We would like to thank all those who came out to the event and helped out with the car washes!

Sylvia Tamalyn Named Miss Bay City!

Miss Bay City, Sylvia Tamalyn

The “Miss Bay City” bikini contest Saturday, August was well attended and a panel of independent judges proclaimed Miss Tamalyn as the 2013 winner. Angela Seale- Poultry graciously passed her crown over as guests cheered on both the beauty queens. Rumors that Miss Tamalyn won due to an overabundance of insurance premiums are false.  Trust me I know this to be true as she hasn’t even purchased Beauty Queen Prize Car coverage yet!!!

Miss Bay City enjoying a snack after the event :D

Miss Tamalyn received a Miss Bay City sash and crown and a new car donated by ADudeNamed Anthony. Judges were ADudeNamed Anthony, Evola Courtois, and former queen Angela Seale - Poultry. 
The master of ceremonies was a very stylish Pygar Bu.

Mimes Protest City Hall!!



After submitting an application to open an academy of mime school and being told: NO Mimes!, at least (most) one mime took to the streets in protest. In an interview the painted protestor was cited as saying _____ __  ___  _______  _ _____  __________  __ _ !

"[14:01] Ever Dreamscape: ya i told Mari i was going to open up a school of mime and she said no permit ;P
[14:02] Roc Plutonian: I knew I liked her"

Come to the next Espresso Yourself night at the Pen September 3 at 6PM SLT to hear more!

Seriously Breaking again?!?  Yep :/
Real News from the Bay City Post!

Yep!
I “ran” into (k maybe over) Ivan Suen who has been a busy big builder in Bay City!
Ivan Suen: I'm having second thoughts about dumping a few hundred K lindens into the new Bay City Heliport.
Ever Dreamscape: hmmm heliport?
Ivan Suen: Yup,  took me a while to negotiate the landowner to sell.  but I needed a spot where it could be flown into with no fear of ban orbs nearby
Ever Dreamscape: gah ill bet
Ivan Suen: The problem with the airport is that airlines can't set up shop there :)
Ivan Suen: so the "Bay City Heliport" is essentially a partner to the larger airport, which will host up to 8 airlines or helicopter tour people. I scripted up a tour giver that narrates for you :))
Ever Dreamscape: excellent
Ivan Suen: I'd like to do this interview in two parts.  The first in my normal typing voice,  and then the second by banging by empty beer into the keyboard.   shidfhsdfasdhjusd
Ever Dreamscape: lol ya... so tell me what's going on here?
Ivan Suen: It's another commercial experiment... seeing if there's need for a heliport.  One of the challenges with Bay City is that the current airport doesn't support operations by some of the airlines such as around the Blake Sea regions.  Another challenge unique to Bay City is that our parcel sizes and road layout really prohibit a private runway (except for small private aircraft).  So similarly to how some cities have had success using helicopters, this is an effort to mirror some of those.



Ivan Suen: Ultimately, I'd like to see existing SL airlines have ticket counters here and fly to and from Bay City destinations as well as other locations in Sansara and Heterocera Atoll continents. This facility will also be suited for tour operators, where they can have their guests meet here and board a helicopter for tours of the City.
Ivan Suen: The inside is mostly mocked up, so don't put too much faith in it yet.  But I think the overall flow will be as it is now. Meeting space / ticket counters on first floor.  Two banks of elevators to take passengers up to the helicopter deck which can service up to three passenger helicopters at a time (such as the AS-363 or EC-135 by S&W.
Ever Dreamscape: looks great!
Ivan Suen: Thx.  It is loosely inspired by some reading on art deco architecture as well as a few design cues from the Heliport found in the World’s Fair in NYC back back in the 60s (I think the 60s).
Ever Dreamscape: so you built and scripted this all yourself?
Ivan Suen: I do a lot of building and scripting.  Although for a lot of my projects lately I leverage the prim-slinging talent of a few friends as well as technologies from Gentek and Hippo.
Ever Dreamscape: so what would you suggest people to do if they want to get involved in this project?
Ivan Suen: For project updates, be sure to click on the mailing list button out front.  To help beyond that, we're going to need some pilots that are good at flying helicopters and hopefully would want to offer passenger service or tours!
Ivan Suen: So if you ever wanted to start a tour company, get your logos, ideas, and friends together!
Ever Dreamscape: Tours would be fantastic and the location here next to the Truro Airship Rez zone is fantastic!
Ivan Suen: It's also close to the aquarium and many other FANTASTIC Bay City builds, especially some of the random great spots you can find just checking out your neighbors creations!
Ever Dreamscape: Wow thanks for the tour Ivan I hope this is a big success for you. Anything else that our readers may want to know?
Ivan Suen: And please be sure to not just get out and enjoy Bay City's Roads, Water, and Sky, but please use sensible ban lines or security devices to help everybody else enjoy the same freedom of movement :)
Ever Dreamscape: That is really good advice thank you!
Ivan Suen: Today's interview was brought to you by the letter E-tv. :)  Thanks for stopping by!

 Awesome (?)Shark Joke

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship.
"Follow me, son," the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people bobbing in the water.
"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing," the father explained. And they did.
"Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing." And they did.
"Now we eat everybody," the father said. And they did.
When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"
His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without the sh*@ inside!"
