My collection of thoughs and whispers from everywhere

Part of my journey in second life, an off-world collection of articles.

Emerald Login page On google statistics: 50k connections to SL using Emerald in 1 day


It’s a printscreen from Google Analytics for Emerald frontend page. Weird or not, they track your reall ip when you connect to Secondlife using their client.

It’s not against CS? Section Disclosure ? 🙂 Still, people like to share.

It puzzles me a bit, but it’s normal to know how many startups your client do.

What’s weird also on that page’s there’s 2 distinct channels: Greenlife Emerald Client. and Emerald Client.Why?

Does not common sense said that older versions are forbidden to log to agni… why those are still registered in your tracking? As there’s a report for last month (15oct-15nov).

Btw, Gratz Emerald Team! There were 50k connections from your client to Secondlife.

1% increase but’s growing.
