Free Buckaroo Till Sunday!

Posted in buckaroo, Slider, VidMon, webmon at 1:12 pm by buckybarkley

[The Sale is over! Thanks everyone!]
 
 
Although I wont say my store is officially sorted out and “open”, it’s certainly running to the point where people can go in and buy things …
 
So let’s make it interesting!
 
Everything is free until Sunday Night.  You buy, you ask for a reimbursement, I check for the sale, I send it.
 
What can you buy?
  • SimpleSlider – 100L
  • Slider – 300L
  • VideoPoster – 100L
  • VidMon – 300L
  • WebMon – 300L
Go to my store: Buckaroo 

Why am I doing this?  Simple – to get the word of my store out there! 

Details:
Go into my store between now and 11:59 pm SL time Sunday Night (March 23rd, 2008).   Buy whatever at the usual price, and then send me a notecard (name it please!  I’m likely to delete anything called “New Note”) … or an email asking for a reimbursement.  You have until noon Friday (March 28th) to ask for a reimbursement.
 
I have to be able to confirm purchases on the transaction log from the SecondLife.com web site before I will send reimbursements. Please break things out by name of item and purchase price.
 
There is a 2000L limit to the reimbursement, per person.  I dont want anyone stocking up for free and reselling — that’s not the point of this … 
 
If things get crazy I reserve the right to pull the plug on this :)
 
NOTE: I will not respond to IMs asking for reimbursement!  Send a notecard.  My IMs get capped, and it is too easy to miss one.

I’ve been thrilled to give a couple of talks lately, and am doing another on Monday Morning (Teachers Buzz Session for NMC).  We’ve been demoing the use of WebMon, Slider, and VidMon.

The Monday morning session will be at the MuMu at 9am
 
I am up for doing more talks, so ping me if you have a group that is interested in getting info out in SL via web / slides / video.

Three Video Products On The Way…

Posted in buckaroo, projects, VidMon at 12:44 pm by buckybarkley

I will have 3 video products for sale soon.  The museum-specific VidMon has been running for over a week now, and people seem to like it.

  •  VideoPoster is the very simple product.  Set the description to the quicktime url, drag the poster texture into inventory and name it “screen-texture”. Deed the object if you need to.  Done!
  • VidMon will present a simple menu of available videos to pick from.
  • VidMon Pro will add the ability to search, change the aspect ratio of the frame, give out notes, and more
I will initially make VideoPoster free at my store!  I want to get it out there, and the script is fine now.  But I’ll get it out for free while I tweak the look of the controller and get detailed documentation together.
