With the Blocking of Emerald I’ll not be writing future Emerald Viewer Reviews. I’ll be concentrating Phoenix and Imprudence, which I expect to be my fav’s, and developments in the Second Life Viewer, Snowstorm Viewer (or in LL speak, the development viewer) and KirstenLee’s S20. As interesting things in other viewers comes up I’ll post about them too.
After just a few months of writing the Emerald Viewer Review and Updates, my posts were out of control and scattered across several months. I made this page to list all the posts I’ve written about the Emerald Viewer. This page should make it easier to find all the information about my Emerald Viewer Reviews. I’ll include links to other good sources of Emerald Viewer information after the list. Let me know if you find resources I don’t list.
