What to do?
Clearly, even for someone with little business sense, the option was to start selling those old servers aggressively, but making sure that these are “low quality” products, not fit for regular use. The “openspace sims” were born. And the strategy was such a huge success that in March 2008 allowed them to be bought in isolation, increased the number of prims to 3750 (what a regular quarter-sim is supposed to have), and allowed parcels to be sold and announced on the available parcel list (i.e. on the map).
