See author Ernest Cline’s post “Aech’s Basement Chatroom in Second Life” from 11th October 2012. The chatroom is located at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Archers/33/32/108. But you will have to find some keys for access! [Update: the chatroom is no longer there as at April 2015]
We may see the chatroom in a movie…
