However, it shouldn't really be a case of spite, such as it feels like with the viewer tags, LL *should* be commanding that position from one of product superiority and user respect. Yes I agree. And I'd add that it says something about LL. If you compete with LL, and you're
  2. a new addition to the TPV policy reads: I.e 2.k : You must not provide any feature that alters the shared experience of the virtual world in any way not provided by or accessible to users of the latest released Linden Lab viewer. I.e., don't do anything that would actually improve the users shared experience beyond what LL does.
  3. I was recently booted from a sim because of my viewer ( yeah I'm a technologist. ). Yes I have done quite a bit to go beyond the normal SL viewer & now & I am getting "no thanks" for my efforts. Both by the Lindens and "Phoenix" zealots. Ya know ... really this is such a sad state of technology where ppl use position rather than argument or a contest only to suppress a challenge, innovation and productivity. As long as this happens we shall just burn rubber.
  4. The Lindens are now doing rollbacks without warning ( your changes are getting deleted. A roll back is .... You fix something one day & the fix is gone the next.) ... makes my fixes look pretty bad... visitors don't know that the Lindens are doing it and it just makes my biz appear sloppy and unprofessional. And while this might be JIRA material ... I think the community should know about this. someone did this - not me ... (I suspect a Linden - I doubt a hacker .. my password is longer than 8 characters mixed case alpha-numeric characters)... I fixed it by placing it on the ground. The
  5. If each new feature requires a new viewer - a full release of the entire viewer - It says to me that the Lindens didn't learn the idea of modularity. Its a concept taught usually in a freshman's first course in computer programming. I don't get it ... Why continue with mudularity - it pisses guys like me off. I'd love to add new modules (loadable libraries) - the kind that fit my vision - not Linden Lab's. And besides when you practice mudularity it infects the entire development process. A complete global knowledge of the viewer is required to build and test .. build & test on se
  6. if you project it on a flat surface (there is math involved) .. you can can kind of with a bit of scripting.
  7. ok then - I did the Moreland Grove viewer and I hate V2.x. But it wouldn't be fair just to say I hate it just because. OTOH most (not all) of the critisms of the V2.x UI have been posted & talked about ad nausem here .. in groups and other forums. What's not to get? What I would have done is not change the user interface or have kept the changes minimal & tried to evolve it in smaller steps. MS made this same mistake with Vista & pissed of a lot of users. SL is a community and like a living organism itself... and like a living thing it needs to adapt along with changes ma
  8. I would like a check box in mine & everyone else's profile that gives us permission by the profile owner to export our own paid for prims to the other grids. Or on each prim an addional permission check box that allows the export of that prim if and only if the avi is the owner of the prim and the prim has copy permissions. The market outside of SL has potential - I'd like to take advantage of that. (and besides ... if SL gets sold I'd like a safe place for everything I've paid for.)
  9. Well Void - if the thread has been deleted I guess its your word against mine. I guess its up to the readers to judge the truth for themselves. While I was doing development, alpha and beta tests... I was only interested in getting things written, tested, and fixed and yes I said very little about my viewer period. I did announce it & asked for testing help. And since I didn't/don't work for either you or Linden Labs and was not seeking LL listing approval.... I have the freedom to set my own job requirments and schedule even if you don't personally approve. Believe it or not... I

  11. this is in reply to Void Singer ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_lady_doth_protest_too_much,_methinks. ) I do try not to reply to posts like Void's but because this is a public thread I'm afraid I have to defend myself here. Here is my privacy policy and for ease of reading it is on my download page right along with my disclosures, checksums etc. and the full source code. Which is all free to download for everyone. You can read it to verify it is 100% in complience with the TPV listing requirements. And furthermore if anyone wishes to verify that the executables match the source the
  12. The Lindens are redirecting their marketing focus: see http://www.ispionage.com/research/default.aspx?q=secondlife.com&refid=3f2b044b Note in particular the keywords they are using to advertise with. You may also want to check out the search terms and see what turns up. Should raise your eyebrows. and an excerpt from the tao of Linden: Work Together. We are engaged in a wildly ambitious and complex endeavor. We need to take on risk and accept the occasional failure. But we dream, stumble and win only together. This requires a level of creative collaboration you won't find in many compan
  13. I love Second LIfe ... but ... What has happen to the economic data - graphs and spreadsheets? Why is the number of ppl online not shown on the viewer's login screen? And what ever happened to that web only client?
