I am now the proud estate manager of the HeriotWatt Second Life island. I have had a few surreal email exchanges with the owner of the Edinburgh University archipelago, about being neighbours and how we should allow plenty of space for our expansion plans. Expansion plans? Getting a single island was enough headache for me. Apparently one doesn't want a nudey beach next door to one's serious university soil. Just like real life property buying, I suppose. Anyway, Edinburgh have give us a warm welcome. All I need to do now is to learn how to build stuff. I have only managed to make a toilet roll so far.
