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.

We’ve been rather quiet the past month, but we have a good excuse! We’ve been trapped in our own lab turning out a series of updates, improvements and new features for Rental Beam. Maybe we’re a bit biased, but we’re pretty excited about this release. We’re pretty sure you will be too. So without further ado, let’s dive in starting with perhaps the most important new feature of Rental Beam.

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.

Second Life Photography for Lazy People

Second Life PhotographyHow many times have you stood back and looked at your Viewer screen then thought: “If I could just get that scene captured…”? Well, I’m here to tell you how.

Log-out. Right then and there. Hit Ctrl+Q or Alt+F4 or whatever keystroke you need to use to close your SL Viewer. Now we go on a hunt.

The Last Image

Most SL capable Viewers save that last screen image to a single disk file. I use Firestorm and run on Windows 10, so my last image can be found at:

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Firestorm_x64\darrius_gothly

And the image file itself is named screen_last.bmp

See? (click the images for a full-size view)

More Sunset in Second Life  Photography

All you have to do is find your last image file, and there you go! An exact capture of the very perfect scene you saw rendered on your Viewer. (Second Life Photography is just more wheels on suitcases, man. I’m tellin’ ya!)

VMM – Understanding How It Works

Filed under: Linden Lab and Second Life, SL Marketplace, Technical Info 

VMM - How It WorksViewer-Managed Marketplace is making quite a hit with both Sellers and Buyers at the Second Life Marketplace. The “hit” it’s making is more the absence of complaints than the usual flood of them, but in the process of turning around sometimes it’s necessary to do things kinda backward. What really matters though is that VMM is working. And now it’s up to us to learn how it works and how best to use it.

Firestorm VMM – An Early Look

Filed under: Linden Lab and Second Life, SL Marketplace, Technical Info 

Firestorm VMMThe possible next version of the Firestorm Viewer for Second Life (and Open-Sim grids) has been released into the dedicated testing community, and from all indications things are looking very positive. To be honest, my personal experience with this release candidate version has been so smooth and delightful that I’m left with only positive comments.
