Giving the Gift of HUDDLES

Friday, April 24th, 2009

tools-menuI finally rooted out a problem I was having with my gift server for the new HUDDLES Landmark Pal Deluxe. Now it works! Luckily the problem was in the server and not the HUD, so no update is necessary. If you have the Landmark Pal Deluxe and want to give the free trial version to your friends, it should now work. Go ahead and give it away.

If you haven’t yet tried the new Landmark Pal Deluxe, it’s really neat. I’ve found it to be very useful personally. It’s great to keep track of all your recent locations via the handy history menu. And it’s so nice to be able to save your favorite places in a variety of ways.

How do you dance in SecondLife (part III)?

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

I found another neat video from the showgirl underground in Second Life. The group is called Showgirls & Burlesque and they have a channel on youtube. This one is a more of a short movie than simply capturing a performance, complete with some touches of dialogue and storytelling. And I’m told they also use the HUDDLES EZ Animator Deluxe to coordinate those dance moves.

Svetlana Mosienko: YES we use EZAD! Don’t know what we would do without it:)

How do you dance in SecondLife (part II)?

Last year I blogged about Phoenixa Sol and how she used 8 Quick Pose HUDs at once to create unique dance routines. Well I was recently sent a link to a video by a dance group who uses an EZ Animator Deluxe to choreograph their shows:

Tweeting about HUDDLES

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Although, I haven’t been a user of twitter before, I got to thinking about how one might update a twitter stream from a LSL script in Second Life. It took me a little time to figure it out, but it seems quite easy. Someone posted a solution to the Second Life forums a couple years back.

The key line of code is this:

llHTTPRequest(“http://” + llEscapeURL(user) + “:”+llEscapeURL(password) + “@twitter.com/statuses/update.xml”, [HTTP_METHOD, "POST", HTTP_MIMETYPE, "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8"], “status=”+llEscapeURL(msg));

User is your twitter name, password is your password and msg is the message you want to send.

I’m thinking that it might be nice to add this to the EZ Animator Deluxe, but I’m wondering if anyone would use it and what features would they want. What do you think?

Oh, by the way, you can follow me on twitter, my name is KeikiAtHuddles.
