Rental Beam at SLM

Rental Beam has become one of our most popular products. As a result, we’ve had to make some important changes. We’ve also got a number of updates and improvements planned. Today I’ll discuss what happened, what has changed, and what you can expect to see coming in the near future.

Back-Handed Compliments

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Man Behind the Curtain 

I tend to have rather sharp-edged opinions on things. As a result sometimes I make people angry. One particular person I’ve successfully angered for quite a few years is a fellow Second Life Resident only with a lot more time “alive” here. We both have pretty good word skills .. and we disagree with each other on almost everything. Sometimes vehemently. Apparently I’ve recently earned another helping of ire. Have a look:

The Rewards of Customer Service

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Linden Lab and Second Life, SL Marketplace, The Project to Save Second Life 

Customer Service is that ephemeral quality about a business that is tough to define in words, but crystal clear in experience. We know when we’ve been treated properly, our concerns or issues taken seriously, and our business appreciated. We also know when we’ve been discarded, disrespected and dismissed. It’s no secret that Good Customer Service is something every company should provide. But many choose not to, and their reasons range across the map. So I thought I’d perhaps convince a few of them to reconsider their decision based on my own recent experience.

This time that experience comes from the Seller / Merchant side of things, not from the usual “Customer Perspective”. Confused? Read on …

An “Interesting” SL Viewer Bug

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Linden Lab and Second Life, New Products, Technical Info 

The SL Viewer and its genetic children are the magic lens by which we “Live” in the Virtual World of Second Life. When it is doing wrong things, it sullies our enjoyment and makes it more of a chore than an enjoyable pastime. That’s why bugs like I discuss today are especially important to exterminate. Sadly the Executioner for this bug seems to be taking the slow boat approach. And I’ve run into it full speed ahead.

Rental Beam – Updates and New Features

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Technical Info 

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 is now Reborn!

Rental Beam Reborn
Making money as a Second Life Landlord is a touchy business. The community of Second Landlords is populated with the entire range from giant holding companies all the way down to individuals just making the rent on a Sim Server. But all of them (the smart ones anyway) use some sort of Rental System. And all of them need a way to advertise what they have for rent.

The Lowly Slide Show

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Internet Life and Humanity, Technical Info 

Your first day in Second Life is generally spent trying not to run into things or other people. The second day is spent in open-mouthed wonderment at all the STUFF to be seen, touched, used and just plain experienced. After that you start realizing how much like “The Jetsons” Second Life can be. But for most of us, every day from the first onward is spent in the company of someone we know well. Family, friends, beneficial acquaintances … whatever the relationship, chances are good you will find moments you wish to keep forever. Presto! The size of your SnapShots folder starts to grow.

HyperMenu Meets Virtual Landmarks

August 1, 2015 by · Comments Off on HyperMenu Meets Virtual Landmarks
Filed under: DGP4SL Info, New Products, Technical Info 

VLMlogo2I mentioned in a recent post about the use of the HyperMenu product on my new (and still a-building) in-world store. I also made mention of the fact that the Virtual Landmarks for the previous Teleporter Store had been updated to the new locations. That means anyone owning a VLM (Virtual Landmark) to my old store can now use it to teleport directly to the new store. As the true idiot I am sometimes, it completely escaped me to build VLM support into the HyperMenu product line. But I got smart(er).
