Did they dump him in Waterhead like they did to my alt upon reentry in SL? I'd love to see that. :/


Until mid next month? I thought Humble was starting mid-January? i.e. next week or so.

I believe the account was created for him in advance, but there's no indication that it has actually been used at all. If that changes, of course, I'll post something.

Ezra, you're right, I corrected that, thanks!

Eggy Lippmann

That "new" feature has been around for 5 years, ever since the new Search window appeared, and SL started migrating a bit of its architecture to web services.
Maybe they just put a prettier interface around it and started actively promoting it *shrug*

Good to see you've come home to report on Second Life, you had us a bit worried.

Eggy, as far as I understand it they actually moved that to be THE profiles window in the latest dev build of the Viewer 2.x thing.

Like, if you want to open someones profile in the future and your restricted to the official client, I wouldn't be impressed either to be forced to load an embedded browser inside of my client, wait several seconds for the page to load, just to do something that should be EFF, just to open their god damn profile, which with the viewer 2 UI is already bad as you can only do one person at a time practically.

What viewer are you using Hamlet?

Thankfully, he grabbed "rodviklinden" on twitter. :P
