[NOTE: We were able to recover what was lost in our logs! Special thanks to Christian Walther, Korov'ev, and KathAveara for their help!]
Here's what happened:
Zeke365 spoke about the latest organized events to teach people about the various locations in the cavern and Age and the history that goes along with them. Along with here.r'Tayrtahn and Stone, they will be having th eir final tour of this season on Tuesday, May 7th at 22:00 KI time (with people to start arriving at the top of the Great Stairs in Ae'gura at 21:30). More tours are planned for the fall, as well as one or two that are during more European-friendly times. See more at the MOUL forum thread

OpenUru.org and its contributors have put out the latest update to the Minkata shard (Minkata.77). It comprises many bug fixes and other needed changes which, once properly tested, will be added to Cyan Worlds' MOULa shard in short order.
Some of the fixes (and their contributors) this upgrade include:
- Fixed the issue that quick mouse moves while walking/looking by mouse could get the cursor out of the window and break the continuous turning (Hoikas)
- Fix remote code execution through Python.Cheat and Python.RunFile (Boq)
In addition, the team has a request for those using the shard:
Code that has been changed on Minkata but not yet incorporated into MOULa is still present in this release (i.e. Physics fixes, Quab fixes, and removal of proprietary video player code). This is a final iteration of testing this large update to MOULa before Cyan picks up the changes. It is essential that we uncover any issues with the code before the handoff to avoid having Cyan spend time reverting MOULa back. In that situation we would be wasting some of the Cavcon fund due to having to back out (and resubmit) the changes
Make sure that moving your computer's mouse cursor into and out of the client window now behaves like any normal Windows program (your cursor should no longer be held captive by the game client)
Unless you forewarn me, don't try to do anything to confirm or exercise the exploit bug. I'll work with the developers to confirm this fix.
Haven't signed up for Minkata yet? Head to this link and follow the instructions for creating an account and installing the shard. Good luck to everyone testing the fixes!
A rather fiesty crowd at this month's AGM. What seemed like a quick meeting soon grew into a full-sized one..right before the crowd's eyes! Here are the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for those that missed it.
DTC came to the stage first to mention that HN has been put on hold for the time being for a new project! This will be similar to Spoken Word Night conducted by vid back years ago, specifically 25 and 50. More details, such as date and time, will be released soon, so check the Heritage Night site for more info.
Guild of Messengers
Thinking the meeting would be short, the GoMe went next, introducing to everyone the latest Messenger to join the Guild: Samoth! The Guild also updated everyone on the progress of URU2U's next episode, which is coming along nicely and will hopefully be released before the next AGM. There were also some non-GoMe related announcements: Samoth mentioned the Relto of Ainia, Max talked about the upcoming International Hood, and Lyrositor updated everyone on the status of Lyrobot.

We're charging right through this year at a crazy pace! This month's All Guilds Meeting came and went and once again, there was much to talk about! Check out the raw and cleansed chatlogs and see how things went.
Here's a summary of the meeting:
Guild of Writers
Hoikas took the time to guage interest in having a St. Patrick's Day parade in Gehn shard. He also mentioned a few statistics about the GoW's shard as well as announcing that the next release, Gehn.15, is expected to be released March 9th, with some bug fixes, a new Tre'bivdil stained glass entry designed by Tweek and modeled for URU by Doobes, and a new Age for all to enjoy!
Mac and rarified gave an update on Minkata and dealings with Cyan. rarified is catching up on some Foundry housekeeping, including compiling a new build of the shard's client, to get ready for new updates and fixes. They're still in contact with Cyan about getting said additions into MOULa soon, reiterating the need for a healthy CAVCON meter to help things along.
Guild of Instructors Read more
It's Groundhog Day in the US, and as we all wait for a (hopefully) early spring, we repeated our usual tradition of the All Guilds Meeting! Many groups were there this month, both new and veteran faces coming in to update everyone. We have our usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for your consumption.
Here's what happened:
Christopher and Mystler announced the public release of an URU test shard dubbed "Destiny" after the spaceship in the television show Stargate Universe (which Mystler had been watching at the time). This shard will primarily be for testing purposes, including new fan Ages for multiplayer functions. More information can be found on their forum.
Next to present was Alien. She announced that she will be broadcasting audio plays of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings that were first broadcast by the BBC about 30 years ago. The broadcasts would be one hour each week for 15 weeks. Alien plans to start them around the time Heritage Night ends its current cycle in about 6 weeks, so look back here for further details!
