AWI has trademarks on "ActiveWorlds", "Active Worlds" and the old AW
logo/icon (USPTO serial #75697074). However, if they don't try to use it
for business, they might be protected by fair use in this case, don't know
much about this.

I'm sure nobody is claiming to be AWI, and if you demand that AWI vouch for
any URL before you'll click it, you're not going to click a lot of them :-)

0/2=0. You could interpret that in two ways: you don't see half in either
worlds, because there isn't anyone in either wolrds OR you do actually see
half in one, half in the other world.

More to learn? Do you really need to learn anything to use the AW

If you're going to add key mapping, you might as well do it properly.
That's what they're trying to do.

If you actually try to understand what you read, you'll see that 1) it's
disabled in the main universe, 2) it's optional for the other universes.
Don't know how it handles the hidden status option, but I suppose they
would've been smart enough to show that to everyone (the UniAdmin,
however, should still see everyone).

That's pretty much what it is now. The only difference is that instead of
entering "y" or "n" in the chat, you click a button. Don't see how this
will change anything.

It isn't like they're sending you advertising popups, just message boxes.

Not exactly rocket science, I suggest you take a course on reading
comprehension. It means that the on-screen location of those windows will
be saved in order to make them appear at the same place the next time you
open them.

> g.eh?

Are you a universe admin? If no, this doesn't apply to you, so you don't
need to understand it. FYI it just means you can change some strings that
will be shown in the GUI.

Do you have to bash every single feature, just for the sake of bashing
them?

Again, this is very plain, simple English. It just means that if you use
a special prefix in URLs, it will try to find files on your harddisk
instead of on the web.

Try it and see?

It's a good way of showing what you're doing more clearly than was
possible before. To have "Sweets doesn't understand anything (s)he
reads" is not the same as "Sweets: I don't understand anything I
read". You not knowing how to use a keyboard doesn't make it a worse
feature... By the way, what's it to do with the goreans?

I agree with you on this one, that floating thing is pretty annoying.
What I do is that I just hide it when I don't want it floating around.

So all you do when you talk to someone is go "a/s/l?!" And you were
talking about "AOL'ish" features...

That would be space in the GUI.

Some people like to have a visible margin.

> p. Again eh?

Still pretty simple English, but it does describe something technical so
I'll forgive you on this one. Just means that instead of using all the
power of your processor, like before, the browser will limit it's use to
50% maximum. This will prevent it from causing other programs to
malfunction or slow down ridiculously.

It's not like it's going to force you to wear a particular avatar in all
worlds with that OP, it will just store it on a per-OP basis, so it
defaults to another one. Won't take you a second to switch it when you
enter.

Does that make it a bad feature, just because the almighty Sweets doesn't
use it?

Same question here.

The improved CPU throttle could also help on this issue, especially on
Win9x. However, I've never had any problems with AW disconnecting me, you
haven't ever thought that the problem might be with your setup and not
AW?

Are you a browser developper? If not, then you don't need the *debug*
log! This feature is probably aimed at the beta testers, a task you
certainly wouldn't fit for. Again, it does say this very plainly, but you
seem to be allergic to comprehension.

Is everyone bitching? I only see you :-) Judging from this post,
disregard what you read and heard, you probably just misunderstood it.
Just download 3.5, install to another directory and try it out before you
say anything. If you don't like it then, you can just go back to your 3.4
installation.

I'm sorry if I offended you, but you really pissed me off with your
attitude. To me, you just seemed like some bastard bashing people's hard
work just because it had some features you didn't care about, or that you
disliked a bit. You are not the center of the universe, sorry. Just because
you don't use a feature, does not mean that it's not a good one!

I also found it hard to believe that you failed to understand most of that,
since you said you've been a world owner for three years. In any case, you
very obviously didn't read it very attentively, if you had you would not
have said what you said. By the way, my primary language is not English,
but Norwegian. So don't come here and tell me not everyone is English.

I hope that you don't mean that you will deny access if no Referer header
is present. Remember, Referer is a completely optional header and many
firewalls block it. It can also be easily spoofed.
