Hot News from Eclipse Scriptworks
Recently there has been a renewed interest in privacy in the Second Life forums. Apparently some companies are publicizing information they collect on avatars. Eclipse Scriptworks will never reveal information about your account to anyone, ever. The data collected by your Avatar Tracker is not shared with anyone, and is not archived on our system for longer than 180 days.
Head to Eclipse Scriptworks on Orpheum Island to get your v3.4 update. This release fixes some very persistent bugs resulting from recent server updates. Delete or archive previous versions. Thanks to all the beta testers who helped get this ironed out. Ask Anna for the update (Dr Debruyere).
Numerous users have reported serious discrepancies between actual login times and the ones shown by avatar tracker. So far, tests have not been able to determine the exact cause. Initially I suspected LL Server issues, but continued problems keep me searching for a solution. Its conceivable that the popularity of Avatar Tracker is causing the problems. Rest assured that I am searching for a solution. I am currently upgrading to a faster server. I will keep you posted. Anna Debruyere
The delete avatar button on the account menu should now be working for all. If you continue to have a problem please let me know ASAP. If you are having trouble adding an avatar with the add button, please let me know. Anna.
SMS notifications would enable you to receive a text message to your mobile device when an avatar you are tracking logs in or out. You will be able to individually select which avatars to receive notifications for. Rates will be on the order of 10L per notification (about 4¢ US). Your standard messaging rates will also apply.
Second Life viewer 2, Phoenix, and several other browsers are beginning to implement “display names.” Residents will now be able to go by the name of their choice. Avatar Tracker is working normally since roll-out of display names, but I will take this opportunity to update the avatar information to include their current display name. Since users can change their display names up to once a week, it will be useful to see what they have changed their name to.
At long last I have released public version 1.0 of Eclipse Advanced Security. My hope is to merge the power of a full-featured security system with the ease of use seen in Eclipse Avatar Tracker. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during the beta testing period. Eclipse Advanced Security retails on Marketplace for $L749. For a limited time owners of Eclipse Avatar Tracker may purchase the new security system at 50% off. Contact Dr Debruyere in-world for special delivery.
I am compiling a list of feature requests for Avatar Tracker 4.0. Send your ideas!
Some users are reporting that the times shown for login and logout of avatars is incorrect. The issue is region specific, caused by lag on individual servers. If the problem persists you may need to locate your server in a different region. However, please notify me (Dr Debruyere) if you see gross errors in case I can develop solutions.
EAS is now ready for official beta testing. If you already have a beta testkit, login using your Eclipse Scriptworks single sign-on id. You may re-obtain your login credentials by clicking on any of your rezzed sensors. If you are a user of other Eclipse Scriptworks products, your login ID is the same. If you do not have a beta test kit you may obtain one at the Eclipse Scriptworks store.
