Immersive Reality Has Closed

We closed the Immersive Reality Grid on April 30, 2018.

This was partly due to lack of interest, even with our free parcel offering,
but the main reason is the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

It is our opinion that Opensimulator as currently offered, especially the currency module, is not secure enough to meet the requirements of the new regulations. We do not have time to develop new code to meet those requirements.

Although some have suggested configuring a firewall to block known European IP addresses, that would be a lot of work and we felt that it was just better to close down the whole grid before the regulations go into effect.

All personally identifiable data has been erased in order to comply with the GDPR "Forget Me" rule.

Finally, even though Immersive Reality is no more, I, Tom Wyoming, will still maintain a presence in OpenSimulator at the Boom Town 2 region on the OS Grid.
