Google Update: Last Spin for CalendarCogs

A story I didn’t want to write but one that was on a horizon very clear to see: The CalendarCog product line, initiated in 2007, has reached the end of its viability. The calendars and kiosks and HUDs that connected to Google via APIs were incredibly useful and practical gadgets in their day. Last November, Google changed the API protocols and pretty much severed our ability to connect Google with Second Life. You may ask, why not open source it? Codie feels the code is obsolete. Hey, last time we modified it was at least four years ago. A lot of changes have been made to Second Life as well as Google APIs.

We really haven’t sold any Cogs for more than a year. It’s been that long since I’ve done any customer service worth mentioning until one person contacted me last week about being unable to get a Cog board to work. Codie is retiring the product from our store and the SL Marketplace. I get to write the obituary.

I went to look for some of the CalendarCog product praises that SL bloggers have put forth over the years … even those are gone! The party is over, we had a very good run. Thank you to all who used our Cogs, it was a pleasure doing business with you.

NEW RELEASE: CalendarCog Board update and new SuperBoard

You need to display events from Google Calendars, larger than life? The CalendarCog Boards and SuperBoards are for you.

We just released this new long awaited version of the CalendarCog Board. Minor upgrade in appearance, but under the hood there’s a new roaring kitty. The new Board is half of the prims of the original, for a crisper and more readable display. The new Boards are also tintable and texturable through the configuration notecard.

The SuperBoard is one huge 20m wide display, when just big is not enough. Every character on this low prim board is bigger than your average avatar’s head and makes it hard not to notice.

We already sent upgrades for owners of the CalendarCog Board v1.2. If you own the old version and didn’t receive an upgrade, please IM CodeBastard Redgrave inworld to get a replacement. The new Board and SuperBoard will be available for sale on SLX and inworld today.
