National LolCatz Archives

For a few months I’ve been a regular contributor to the forums on the wonderful SL community site SLUniverse. I’d recommned it to anyone looking for a good active 3rd party SL forum.
My own contributions have tended to be of little substance and more humour related . In particular I’ve found I have a passion for Photoshopping famous photographs with LolCatz heads , A strange talent but it keeps me off the streets, I’ve recently set up the National LolCatz Archives, a photographic archive of LolCatz History. The full archive is now hosted here . Today’s addition to the archive was Munich 1938.

Both SLUniverse and the Archive have been added to the sidebar here

All original unsold land has changed ownership from Kirby McMahon to Dusty Outlander. The land is all back on sale at the same inland price of L$22000 per 2048sqm (14 plots in total) so it sounds more like an administrative move rather than a totally new ownership. – The change occurred at about 00:20 , today November 8th.

Indications are that avatars show similar behaviour to RL research, moving away from the bot when pressed to closely , with women being less sensitive. It doesn’t mention known cultural differences in personal space but I’d assume those would apply as well .
