Just a small note.

Due to Googlecode being a right royal pain in the arse and not allowing downloads(anymore), I have shifted back to sourceforge.

A Little Clarification


To re-iterate what was previously stated S19 is what I currently use to run Secondlife its a personal viewer I just happen to share it. To this end I am obliged to share the source code which I dutifully do and yes it includes large sections of code from henri, and code derived from emerald/pheonix, or dale glass,marine kelly,lord greggregg etc etc etc or even the lab.And shock horror ME TOO.
Each header or source code file contains the copyright as is.

Now here's the rub I can basically add , modify, subtract, merge , delete, re-enable or do whatever I please as long as those original code copyrights are intact.

This also means I can alter the UI remove Tabs or add tabs, change textures alter DOF, change shaders, add 3D,alter default behaviors, remove post processing or add it, mess about with cmake, alter anything I please as long as it does not break the LL TOS.

And here is the best bit of all, I can do this without consultation or committee meetings or anyones approval, this also works both ways people can take whatever they please and alter change or otherwise faf about with whatever they please and they often do.

The fact remains that as long as I share a binary I am obliged to also share the corresponding source which I do, If this is not to your liking, sorry I don't run the viewer for anyone else except for my own selfish needs.

Warm Regards, KL

Just to add a pretty image or two a few examples of what I mean.

What dreams may come!

That will do nicely :)
S19 @ 500K mem = HAPPY!



So I guess the most pertinent question is why? It is probably the most pointless one to answer also.

But lets just take a wild stab at it!
I need to be in SL occasionally so I need a viewer ( Duh), V2 is dead sorry S22 it was fun, V3 is well lets just say it's not my cup of tea. I could just download someone else's viewer but thats not what I want.
I LIKE S19 it was and still is quick, its code in comparison to newer clients is simpler it has much more modest hardware demands I can merge from many sources more rapidly etc etc etc..
It ticks all my boxes, on a more personal note it's NOT limited to SecondLife.

That is important to me, so it may have bugs , it may not compile on macs very well... sorry

But if I wish to drift around SL or jump into Opensim I can.. anyway hope that kinda answers some of my motivations, and why I share the corresponding installer.

Huge love n respect,

Ok this is fun...no really!




Not everyones cup of tea, but if your like me and love anything 'simulation' then this is worth a mention.
Kinda stumbled upon this gem while trawling through the Steam green-light section it's called Euro Truck Simulator 2..... I know catchy title.
Now driving trucks may seem kind of odd as a game but this is mega fun and seriously addictive.
And like most things its the little touches that make the simulation really click.
The Internet radio streaming into the game is a stroke of pure genius , great rendering with superb lighting , and simple but inspired AI from other motorists. You will find yourself swearing at the Car that undertakes you on the autobahn and nearly causes a major pile-up.

Add this to your collection now you won't be disappointed.

Mucho Hugs KL.
