hippoRENT - Hippo Technologies LogoI have put off writing this post for a long time now, but it’s finally reached the point where I feel I must. It gives me no great pleasure to write it either, but sometimes I just have to say what I think. Today’s post is exactly that, me finally saying what I feel needs to be said. To put it bluntly … if you are using the hippoRENT Rental Management System then it’s time to find something else.

When it comes to managing your Land Rentals, it’s the tiny details that tend to give you the most trouble. Simple things that get overlooked, or tiny issues that go unnoticed can drive you totally crazy. And that’s why we’ve been busy improving Rental Beam. At DG Products for Second Life, we believe that computers should handle the boring detail work, leaving us Avatars to frolic and play our day away … errr, something like that.

Rental Beam Reborn
Making money as a Second Life Landlord is a touchy business.

Once added, the Land Owner adds a simple bit of HTML to their website to display a real-time listing of all of their available Parcels. Unlike the similar service provided by Hippo Systems, the Rental Beam service allows the Land Owner to integrate the listing into their own website.

Our time away from the public eye wasn’t totally wasted. (Although laying around watching educational TV shows isn’t exactly “waste”, it sure isn’t immediately productive either.) We are pleased and proud that over time we’ve gathered a cadre of “Idea People” that are excellent at thinking up new gadgets, identifying needs and problems in their own use of Second Life, and willing to share those ideas and suggestions with us.  When we are presented with a new idea or obstacle, we do what’s only natural for us … we invent a tool or device to address it.
