  1. Or I could just ignore your request... It did, you interpreted badly
  2. My post said that's it's a mistake made by many. Please read a little harder. Just about everyone was fixated on codes by SMS, email or token. As to biometrics, I'm really not going to get into it for good reason or the other methods available. I'll just keep snacking on the popcorn and watch with amusement
  3. I've wanted to stay out of this since the last similar thread but one element that is missing for me and which seems to be mistaken by many is that 2FA is NOT a code that is sent to a phone or displayed on a token! Some people's experience may be only that, others somewhat more. 2FA is a security principle of which the second factor could be a OTP code but does not have to be. Pedantic yes but it's an important point as far as I'm concerned. Windows Hello for example can leverage certificates with biometrics. Difficult to use? Not unless sitting in front of the PC is considered difficult (and that's just one example of unobtrusive second factor). Also, it seems that a large number of users seen reluctant to protect the viewer and if all they want to do is login and chat then I can understand their mindset but I've only seen Gabriele draw attention to the inventory as an important asset. That was certainly mine! Money I could have replaced but loss of intellectual property in scripts, animations, objects etc. that were of my creation would have ended my business operation. Account takeover could also lead to related issues around fraud, either financial that affects the nonchalant player directly or others with whom that person would normally interact. Back to my example with assets. I would share content, edit rights and so on. LL remain ridiculously behind the times by not offering methods available. Whether people want to use them would no doubt remain a personal choice and in that I have no issue with people who do not wish to apply better controls, just as long as they quit ranting about telling others that SL should not have better authentication security beyond avatar name and password!
  4. I haven't actually seen any good responses here yet. This is clearly important and warrants you contacting your government. They have resources, they can find people, they can launch helicopter attacks to sort this out. Failing that, send an email to Liam Neeson, he has skills and knows how to find people.
  5. Actually no because while the constituent countries that make up Britain (of course Ireland is not one of them), each of them has its own language, not just accent. Thus to suggest that there's a British accent while describing that as one recognised as quintessentially well spoken English, is not only somewhat disrespectful of those inhabitants of those countries but also demonstrating a lack of either education or awareness but that's another subject. But it's ok, I can just refer to this American accents of the Canadian Mounties or the American accents of the Mexicans or is it the Mexican accent of the Americans?
  6. So you mean a specific ENGLISH accent then? Not a British accent of which there's really no such thing.
  7. Precisely what does a British accent sound like? Do you mean Dai, the Welsh villain? Paddy the (Northern) Irish villain? Or Jock the Scottish villain? Or do you mean a stereotypically movie English accent? Clue: British accent is somewhat meaningless.
  8. Yes but... cyclists do own the roads as they have an implicit right to use them. Motorists have to be licensed to be permitted!
  9. and retaining potentially sensitive information within the corporate domain, much less likely to take a spanking from GDPR (depending on the nature of the data in question). The last thing that organisations need is data exfiltration via non approved methods.
  10. I don't believe they have anything for corporates. Maybe people who work collaboratively in a small organisation who don't mind playing "dress up" first and have no need to share anything such as presentation content. Beyond that I struggle to find any fit.
  11. Yes, they can try and I predict that if that's the plan, they will fail to gain traction, that's all. It's just too niche with such vastly different requirements to execute, delivering next to none of the standard requirements that the market has already demonstrated are what the customer base need. Where it probably would work perfectly would be to create a virtual environment for a virtual meeting room for inconclusive talks between vacuous UK government and the EU. Nothing productive would happen and no tools will have been harmed in the process.
  12. Possibly but they're missing the mark. It's not about the cost to education or anyone else, it's about the requirements of the platform upon which to run the client and the user interface to achieve three main presentation tasks, those being slide presentation, whiteboard and screen share. Without those, it's a dead duck for at least 99.67% of the intended customer base, more so when up against incumbents where the only requirement is a browser, or mobile app which can do all of the above tasks with ease. Does a lecturer comprise a virtual avatar professor without any decent established common method of presentation tool? Nah, i'll go with a video feed thanks
  13. Other than they'd just become another "me too" in a market of existing, established incumbents.
  14. Thank you! That's the one, I forgot which "King" Linden it was at the time, I left SL quite a long time ago now. It really needs to be accessible in a web browser, very limited in scope and frankly, by the time you've done all that and made it conference ready, it's just NOT SL at all. Without any method to share content, I mean REALLY share content, even something as basic for business as a powerpoint or a screen share, then it's a non starter and please nobody suggest media on a prim, i'm talking about native integrated support. Remote meetings typically need so much more than just to look at a pretend person when I can actually see the real person. Far more fun is to turn on FaceRig and become an animated rigged avatar as a virtual camera feed to Webex but even so, it's a distraction and only suits internal meetings for holiday times. Nobody really wants to see me as a female bartender holding jugs of beer as their line manager
  15. They tried selling "SL behind the firewall", I forget what that was called but that was when the CEO at the time (forgotten his name) thought that the money was in business, completely ignored the consumer playing base and tried to market SL to corporates. That didn't end well.
