DeliHUD 2-week public beta starting NOW!

In one of the previous posts I've mentioned I was coding a bit...

The alpha tests seem to have gone reasonably well, so I am opening the beast to the public beta.

What is it: it is an in-world interface to del.icio.us, to retrieve and visit the SLURLs that you would pick up on blogs and other out-of-world sources.

Setup: create a notecard with two lines - first one being your del.icio.us username, the second being your del.icio.us password, then wear the hud, and drop the notecard onto it.

The SLURLs that you want to visit from in-world should have 2 tags: "slurl" and "visit". Then they will be picked up by the HUD and shown to you.
By clicking on the text shown in the HUD, you will be offered a TP to the destination, and after you have visited the place and possibly created a LM for it, you can click on the red square next to the text to remove the "visit" tag - after which it will no longer show in the list.

Where to pick it up ? I've put a vendor next to the primskirtbuilder area (see the banner on the right side of the blog), as I was a bit lazy to tweak the script, I've put the symbolic price of L$1 to still make it function.

The beta lasts till 25th of June, after which time all the beta copies will self-destruct - and either we might have another round of beta, or if the beta proves successful and bug-free, then I start distributing it.

Please put your comments about the behaviour/functionality/etc. into the comments to this post, so we avoid any duplicate reports.
