I just have to say that all the work folks here are doing is really inspiring and amazing.  Thank you thank you so much for preserving and sharing these wonderful creations.  Community driven efforts like this one gives me a lot of hope for the future of Opensim as a truly open Metaverse.

I recently added  Pathlandia to this very useful online directory of hypergrid accessible regions.  You can also post events!.  Wizzy or Thirza, I think it would be great to include the Hypergrid Safari clubhouse and possible even post the safari events to the site.  Could get more attendees and attention!
