              1. This is not on OSGRID, btw , the article implies that it is with , (notably OSgrid).

                1. I changed the language to avoid the interpretation that the videos were shot on OSgrid. I have no idea where the videos were shot.

                2. Ahhh well just for the record, they were shot on my(Bill Blight's) grid,

              2. Well as these are from my grid's youtube channel and are watermarked, safe to say easy to tell they come from the Opensim Life grid .

              3. I revised some text to reference the Opensim Life grid.
