Day 107 - The day we got hit with 2.0

Oh my goodness.... SL Viewer 2.0 [Beta] has come out, and it allows you to do web stuff on a prim! See?


Ok, so I went back to my normal browser to finish this up. :) But still, it's pretty neat! I had gone to the Second Bodies HQ earlier and Al had played a page on YouTube for me on a prim. HOWEVER...

I was standing there reading blogs on a prim, and I went away for a second. When I put SL back up...


Who knew you could change the URL on someone's prim! LOL!!!! Bad bad bad Fricker!!

That is, however, probably a bad thing, you know?

I didn't get mad at him, though. It was too damn funny and besides. He was a tiny kangaroo. Who gets mad at a tiny kangaroo?

Hi Fricker!

Not me.

Anyway, I'm still getting used to this viewer. It's got some nice features. I don't like not having my fly button at the bottom, though, or the search button. I also hate how you have to go to a slide out menu just to delete something. It makes it clunky when trying to build. Also, the profiles... Dios mio, no. I like them BIG and in my FACE. Not all scrunched to the side and I can't see anything. Also, I liked my media stuff at the bottom too. The biggest problem for me is the snapshot issue. I believe it's just on the high res snaps, but if I go any bigger than the current window [which I regularly do because I like my pics big for editing], I end up with this problem.

Not. Good. At. All.

That's so not good.

However, the tattoo layer is pretty cool, as is the alpha layer. No invisiprims on shoes? HELLO, SHOE WORLD! Oh man, that is all worth it for me right there! I hate invisiprims on shoes, especially the new trend of putting the shoe on the lower leg and and the invisiprim on the foot.

Like everything, it just takes getting used to. In a few months, people will be used to the new settings and layout, and some people will be here who never have known anything different. And of course, there will be all the people who do absolutely NOTHING but complain about it for months to come because complaining about SL and Linden Lab is their food and water. Like I mentioned in a plurk earlier, the Lindens could solve world hunger, and some people would complain that they hadn't solved cancer in the process.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to playing with the new viewer.

I downloaded it and then had to leave for a business trip this morning. I'm both looking forward to and sorta dreading playing around with it when I get back Saturday.

Fricker -- hahahahahaha. Bluebonnet is never gonna be the same.
