UPDATE: The URL for the music stream has been added (see below).
The Guild of Healers has been a familiar fixture in the cavern and in Second Life for many years...and they're going to celebrate our move into the fall season with a party!
If you'd like to join in on the festivities, head over to the Guild of Healers' Hood on Monday, September 21st at 13:00 KI time. Music will be streamed at this URL the day of the party.
On September 18th, 2014 the primary matrix of the KI-device, known as "the Lattice", suffered a major cascade failure, leading to a subsequent event known as the "Great Crash" of its virtual processing nodes. Unable to utilize the Nexus or rely upon the KI-coordinate system from the Great Zero, travel to and from the cavern became hazardous at best. Thankfully, through dedicated efforts of several Restoration Engineers, the Lattice was restored to functionality after weeks of dedicated work. There were severe data corruption issues, however.
Both the KI-devices and Lattice were able to be restarted only at their "baseline" state, very similar to that which the DRC encountered when investigating the cavern during the first Restoration. It is unknown at this time if Victor Laxman was consulted during these repairs.
Access to Nexus and various cavern locations may now be visited with relative safety, assuming normal precautions are taken during such explorations.
We must sadly report the news that, on September 3, 2015, Deirdre Karris departed this world for a far better place in the Ages to be found beyond.
During her time among us, she participated in many events with other dwellers of the cavern. Examples include helping plan events, such as the yearly CAVCON Awareness Party, concerts as varied and far reaching as Bach to the Beatles, and all the while lending comfort and encouragement more times than can be mentioned.
This Sunday, September 13, 2015 at 13:00 KI time, the URU community she dearly loved will hold a memorial service to honor this most wonderfully remarkable woman. The event will take place in the Guild of Messengers' Hood, within the garden of Eder Delin, a favorite place of hers.
All are welcome to attend to provide their best wishes, and give support to their fellow community members.
We at the Guild of Messengers also wish to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to her friends and family.
It's back to school for some, back to work for others, and back to the cavern for September's All Guilds Meeting. Things were delayed a bit to accomodate Doobes' admittedly weird schedule, but the meeting itself went off without a hitch.
Also, here's a handy summary:
CAVCON Awareness Party
As has been done in previous years, some very caring and crafty explorers are planning to organize a big event to bring the importance of the CAVCON to the forefront...and to just have a great time in the cavern.
Deirdre, Zeke365, Patricio and maggie696 are behind this year's efforts, and the party is tentatively scheduled for October 10th. More details will be figured out over September, with a full announcement at the next AGM (October 3rd). Stay tuned here and at the MOUL Events forum!

The Mysterium committee is currently running a survey for explorers, including those that have attended the fan-run convention in recent years, and/or those who are interested in attending in the future.
The survey doesn't take very long, and it will help them get an even better idea of what everyone really wants for future Mysteriums.
So if you have 5 to 10 minutes or so to spare, please consider helping the committee by filling it out and also sharing the link with your other Myst/URU-fandom friends.
The survey can be found here. The Mysterium committee thanks you for your participation!
