UPGRADE: CalendarCog Board/SuperBoard 2.0 RELEASED!

Yes, finally, it’s here! We at MechanizedLife are very thrilled and proud to anounce that the new generation of CalendarCog Board and SuperBoard are now available for purchase on SLX or inworld at MechanizedLife Store, on Rouge.

Here are a few highlights of what’s new:

  • CogServer no longer required; greatly improved and simplified setup!
  • Adaptive 4/5 lines display with optional board label
  • Kiosk interface, click to list events in chat, and HUD users can synchronize events
  • New hovertext Verbose mode to help diagnostics
  • New uniform modular architecture, complete rewrite of the Controller and Display components
  • Owners can add events using: /15 add

Automated upgrades should do their job in the next 24h. If you don’t get your upgrade, please contact CodeBastard Redgrave directly for a manual delivery.

UPGRADE: CalendarCog Board 2.0 in beta testing

We are really thrilled to anounce that the new CalendarCog 2.0 is ongoing beta testing as we speak. CalendarCog is a Google Calendar driven event board for SecondLife. And the best event board in SL will become even better.

MechanizedLife CalendarCogs Board and new SuperBoard

So, what is the big deal with 2.0? So many things! Here is a list of the biggest changes in the upcoming version:

  • No need for the CogServer anymore; CalendarCog Board will now be a standalone, independent device that will only need to be rezzed and configured like the Kiosks. That means much easier configuration. They still can be “grouped” together through the CalendarCog website.
  • Kiosk capabilities; the CalendarCog Board will now become an over-inflated Kiosk. Users will be able to click on the Board to get a list of upcoming events in IM, and also synchronize events with their CalendarCog HUD.
  • This is yet to be tested, but the CalendarCog Board owners should also be able to add events to their calendars in the same way it’s done with the HUD
  • Automated 5 vs. 4 line display, adjusting itself if you add a board label or not
  • Hover text diagnostic dialog, so you always know what’s going on while operating the board

The new version of the CalendarCog Board is currently in testing phase, but we are working on a few enhancements and additions too, and it should be released in the upcoming week. All current Board users will be upgraded automatically.

UPGRADE: CalendarCog Kiosk 1.8 released!

Finally, we released the 1.8 version of the amazing CalendarCog Kiosk.

It needed a complete overhaul, some basic, like AM/PM time. It needed a few bug fixes, namely for synchroning events from the Kiosks to CalendarCog HUDs. It needed a new look. We opted for several new looks, created from scratch. And we think we delivered.

MechanizedLife CalendarCog Kiosks - ALL Models

What is that CalendarCog thing, I hear you ask? CalendarCog is Google Calendars for SecondLife. And the CalendarCog Kiosk is a low lag, low prim, small footprint, lightweigth display for your Google Calendars in SecondLife. Kiosks displays events by cycling them as hover text, and will list all events when touched.

New in this release:
- AM/PM time and military time both supported!
- Synchronization bug fix
- Reset bug fix
- GET HUD option for your visitors
- CONFIG menu option to reach the website
- No more blind loading, progress bars and counters always tells you what is going on
- Removed superfluous ( ) when event has no location
- And a few more goodies…

CalendarCog Square has also been discontinued and is replaced by the CalendarCog Kiosk package, containing a square version. All customers who have not recieved updates are not in my database, please contact CodeBastard Redgrave inworld for a replacement.

UPGRADE: CalendarCog HUD v2.04 released

A very anticipated upgrade, and one I really wanted to do for a while is the CalendarCog HUD. It is definitely one of the most interesting product in our catalog, and our flagship product among the CalendarCog series. Those who tried it will tell you: you absolutely need this HUD if you are on a schedule.

So I am really proud to have made my homeworks, and release this major upgrade to the CalendarCog HUD. Those are the first step in a move toward much more goodies for this HUD, but I hope our customers will be pleased with the number of refinements we brought to this latest version.

MechanizedLife CalendarCog HUD v2.04 - Interface snapshot

New in this version:

  • 12 lines x 60 character per line display (old version had 5)
  • redone the complete text matrix using 10 character per prim display
  • crisp and clear new font
  • background color, background texture and text color can be changed through the config notecard
  • new non-obtrusive HUD hiding method (prevented camming through the hidden HUD)
  • MUCH faster, Mono compiled
  • new interface rearrangement in prediction of extending the HUD
  • a few bugfixes: now CalendarCog HUD can synchronize to Kiosks properly

We will continue our work on adding more goodies to your HUD now that we have a larger and more reactive and clear display, so stay tuned.

We already delivered the update through our Deliverator, since the old update server is not available to push upgrades to our customer. If it happens you have any version of the HUD prior to 2.04, please contact CodeBastard Redgrave to get your upgraded version, via a notecard or IM. Specify your complete avatar name, version number, and place of purchase (SLX or inworld). Please allow up to 24h. Thanks for your understanding.
