Lost & Found - The Abyss

Normally the things you lost XOR the vehicle in question lost at SIM XING will be returned to you in Lost & Found – but… sometimes you will look in vain for the items there. So what happened to the items then?

Now we enter the realm of SL myths and the unknown. As comets the lost items fly through the hard working moles nets, drawing long trails of glowing particles over Linden Governor House as they fall down, down and down. Observed on the radar of SL server administrators and continuing falling down deep into the abyss of an old forgotten SL server hidden under dust and ages of woven binary data.

There below the reach of the known VR Universe it is believed a stockpile of millions of prims, sculpts, mesh is accumulated simmering with the sounds of scripts trying to revoke absolute commands - down there eastern of the moon and western of the sun in the mysterious Lost & Found Abyss.

Oh no, that's not a mystery at all! It's hidden under ground here:

But if you dare go there, beware of the Inventory Worms and ... well just about everything else really.

Similar to this one is when you miss the person and you drop that photo, always an embarrassing one of course, on the wall of your home, or a tree.
