To make it attractive to educational institute BUSINESS INSPIRE (the owner of EDUGRID NL, SIMVALLEY and other private closed grids) the possibility to rent a complete sim (65000 sqm / 15000 prims) till 1-1-2016 for FREE!

The offer sounds very attractive, but the web sites seem to be unreliable, perhaps only to people not in Europe.  I have not had trouble reaching the grid, but I have only tried a few times.  I would be reluctant to build anything of value there unless I could get an OAR file easily.  I am not sure how I could do that if the web site is not accessible.
