Thanks, Hamlet, I really do appreciate it...

Codebastard Redgrave and her contacts managed to shut down the primary location where this was being offered for a download, only 23 people managed to get it before it was removed. And most BitTorrent sites that carry "Neil Life" are actually fake feeds. So this means that most people who might get the notecard will *not* be able to download it. But, alas, that won't prevent them to start another download site somewhere else... so the more people are warned, the better!

Also, thanks to Zai Lynch, who might have found the culprit: Neil Elton (http://wiki.secondlife.com/w/index.php?title=Downloads&diff=448913&oldid=445632) With a name and a description on the *official Linden Lab wiki*, LL might be able to do something about it.

In the mean time, another of those phishing/virus-infested/copybot-included SL viewers seems to continue to be around:

It will get worse before it gets better. And it will not get better unless Linden lab formally denounces these people and removes all of their supporters from LL staff/executives/board.

In addition LL needs to become very aggressive about enforcing the GPL aspects of the source code and anyone that releases or has ever released a ripping tool or participated in development of a ripping tool needs to be removed from Second Life permanently.

Unfortunately, there is a new download location. It is now hosted at sharenow.com...

Emerald has also release a lot of functions in the past. I agree there may be one or two functions not mentioned in the client like our physical object interceptors which is on our svn and a few other things. Please do not be discourages we do not release passwords or anything. We do track IP adresses that download the viewer and the source to keep count.
