And no, I'm not talking about my undead Grandfather.

Guvna Shang told us in the State channel that his entire inventory has disappeared.

Colonel O'Toole already reported a similiar disaster happening to his fellow Hobo, the gifted builder and urchin Arcadia Asylum.

But this is the first time, to my knowledge, that the Lindens have fumbled the builds, possessions, and records of the head of a virtual state into the Digital Void.

The Guvna has sworn not to abandon us or his Empire, but the relevance of holding on to the avatar Desmond Shang has come into question.

He has sworn to send his deva to the doorstep of Linden Labs to recover his data, if that is what it takes. I hope this is resolved soon, Guvna!

(This does raise the question of what would happen to Caledon if something horrendous befell his deva, but that is another post.)

That is horrible! Easily everyone's worst nightmare in here to have that happen...

Thankfully, I was around when the Guvnah reappeared in Tanglewood, much better for wear - it seems that his near-myriad of friends-notifications were doing him in. Once that feature was shut off, he was much better.

As to his inventory, he had remembered a procedure, which another Caledonian had in note form; I passed him one that I had acquired that has proved successful for others as a backup. I have not heard the results of those attempts, however.

Fraulein Chief, I still need to fulfill that promise of shopping, I should remind you. *grin*
