This block indicates the status of the Second Life Grid (www.secondlife.com).
I knocked it together as part of the Second life/Moodle mashup: www.sloodle.com
It Screen scrapes the Second Life status page using the php function: "file ()"
You are more than welcome to edit this as you wish, all I ask is that if you do, you send me your updated version so I can use it too!
I'm not a php expert so if you spot anything wrong please let me know.
Oh and if you do use Second life to teach - please pop over to Sloodle.com and get involved!
