Questions about “How do I explore/navigate/travel/find my way around Second Life” never cease to be hot. I reckon we can do a lot to improve usability, but until more intuitive changes come to light…
Me teaches you how to use SLURLs — web links for inworld locations! For example, SLURL TO MY OFFICES. Whether you want to advertise products/services in your email signature or are looking for a quicker way to get somewhere, SLURLs are excessively useful once you get started.
This vidtut features First Look: Dazzle (GET IT!). And in case you haven’t noticed yet, in our 1.19 Release Candidate viewer (and WindLight and Dazzle), SLURLs now appear in chat history every time you teleport. Sorta like a web browser’s “back button” or “history”.
But enough chitchat, it’s time to show you!

Thanxies for earlier suggestions that I should include video tutorials in our Second Life Podcast:
Rihanna Laasonen: “Torley, have you considered posting these tutorials on the Second Life podcast feed? You guys are hosting the podcast feed but don’t use it much. It would be great to have the tutorials download automatically instead of having to come here to find them then go off-site to watch them.”
Tensai Hilra: “Quick question Torley: not sure if I’m missing it, but is there a quick and easy place to get all the tutorials in a podcast format? mp4 seems to lend well to the task, but it would be nice to have new ones fed to me as I sync. Thanks and keep up the good work!”
YOU ask, I listen AND respond! I’m working on it, so TODAY’s tip has been podcasted! But… I’m finding it cumbersome to add new items via text editor. If you favor a certain RSS editor, let me know in the comments. Thanks in advance for helping me help you help us be ULTRA-LOVELY!
