Got this email right now…
Dear Second Life Resident,
Late last week, we discovered a denial-of-service attack that was being served through the widely distributed Emerald third-party viewer. This is in direct violation of our third-party viewer policy (part 2, section d, paragraph iii).
We have removed Emerald from the list of third-party viewers, and are now in touch with the Emerald team to discuss what can happen next. We did this to do our best to protect the safety and security of Second Life users. We will not tolerate a viewer that includes malicious code, nor will we tolerate development teams with a history of violating users’ trust or disrupting their lives.
We take privacy, safety, and security very seriously, and we will act to the best of our abilities to protect it. We have not yet disabled logins via the Emerald viewer, but will do so if we feel the software and the team behind it is not able to meet the standards we’ve set. While Emerald is currently the focus of our attention because of what happened recently, all third-party viewers are held to the same standard, and must comply with the third-party viewer policy.

If you have been using the Emerald viewer, for now we would encourage you to consider either one of the Linden Lab viewers, or an alternative third-party viewer.
denial-of-service attack that was being served through the widely distributed Emerald third-party viewer? Emerald?
Im not sure why I cant believe this.. but it seems I have to.
I hope all will be ok soon.. If they shut down Emerald Viewer.. what should I use then to login Second Life? Oh my GOD! Horror-Scenario..
I hope I dont have to use the Viewer 2.0 for the future. 😦
Usually I am one of these persons who dislike everything that is affected by changes. Or in short: I hate changes.
In almost the same manner it was pretty sure why I did freak out when heard that Xstreet SL will be transformed to something which is called Second Life Marketplace. Yea New Second Life Marketplace.
Indeed I was one person of many who worried about that. I thought why there is need for so much changes?
Today I updated some of my core products on the new marketplace. And after editing 3 products I started to acclimatize with the new way how to manage products there and so.
I must say that I now start to like the new design.. Yes me! The evil hater of all changes.. I like it now!?
Yea the way how I can edit all the products is pretty good. Guess its just a matter of habituation.
I like that you can link one product to another. Or link to a demo. This is good I thought and I use it now.
What makes me sad is the fact that they did remove this “Peoples who bought this product, bought these products too…” Feature. Im not sure but this was another good way to get some visitors.. yea visitors other creators as well.
But at least I am overall much more happy with it then in the past. Had already some sales but not much. Main sales still come from Xstreet SL. But when they close it down.. I hope those sales will be on the new Market too.
Just my “changed” thoughts on that.
Just downloaded a new Version of the Emerald Viewer.. no I dont know if there is a new Version. I just wasnt up to date because the SL brake I had.
Ok then I did notice that they have a new Website here:
And I must say I like the style of the Website. Its so minimalistic but fine. I like this style. I mean what else should you see on this website? Right.. Most peoples first look for a new Emerald Version. And the first thing you see on this website is the “Download Button”. Easy .. and sweet!
You may wonder why I write about this.. I just dont like the trend that new Websites have to be overcrowded.. Its a trend I dont like.. Lots of Websites outthere which are overcrowded even if they just offer one single product. Yea on some Websites you wont find this single Product with the first hit.
So.. Great Emerald.. I love the new Website.. keep it simple but fine 🙂

So yesterday I just wanted to make some changes in my Mall in Second Life.
The first idea was to build a third etage. But I didnt want to build in the high again. So i thought about the solution to build a cellar in the mall.
First it wasnt easy because the Second Life terraforming tools are horrible in my opinion. But then the estate owner told me about a tool which is way more effective.
But what did I place in the new room? Well i´ve got some new and great alexandre fashion skins and shapes. So I wanted to place them in my mall. I am alexandre affiliate and I am sure I will sell a lot of those skins because they are very realistic. And if i dont sell much.. however SL is fun and not only business. But SL keeps me creative and this is the main point why i like to spend time for it. But anyway let me please place the SURL to the skin and shapes:
This is another view of the new mall space.. I like to work with blue windows and the idea was to see sim water on the ground. Im not sure if its ok to be proud about the own work.. but in this case I am. I had a lot of fun while redesign. When I finished the room, i still did need some friendly admosphere.. so i thought it would be great to buy some plants. I did place some of them in differend spots of the mall. Now I am happy!
