All Quiet on the Western Front
Yes, I've been a bit slack on the blogging front this week....but not really...
I'm in the process of building a new blog on a personal hosted domain and expect to finish next week when I get back to my own computer as currently I'm working on an iMac deep in the Kentish countryside surrounded (at times) by cats, rabbits, deer, badgers, moles and buzzards. I was woken this morning by Phil the pheasant shouting at some ungodly hour...
On the SL front, the big news is Rod at SLCC promising to polish more.... good, polishing and clearing the pizza crumbs out of the servers would be great, after all, Viewer 3.0 hasn't rocked anyone's world. Inara Pey has a good report ...here. Personally I am not much of a conference person though I have been to a few in my time, I enjoyed the socialising but Rod could have blogged everything he said, it would have been more available, maybe.
The Evil Google+ has attracted more and more press Wizard has a link to a few posts in her Drama Blog including a link to the new NetPolitik by Miso. Rod did seem to understand the privacy issue in his speech, which is just as well remembering how annoyed the WoW folk got when a change was attempted over there.
Great image by Botgirl ... here. ....and a story here.
...and on the subject of names....the stupid Display Name idea has turned sour as most of us predicted it would. It's a shame companies are so reluctant to admit they got it wrong (even Coke had to) and I guess SL will never go back to two names, or even three in the registration...but a good post on that ...here.... by Avril Korman.
Anyway, I'll get back to building a website and weeding inbetween ..... god...code is a nightmare...
Have a good weekend.
