Petr: I hope we can submit bug reports
A: The product has built in Feedback. Click on [Main Menu & Setup] (picture
of globe on hand)/ [Information]/[Send Us Feedback]
Petr: What kind of protocol does AltME use internally? Is it IOS RMP
protocol? How does it sync?
A: We have not decided to release this info...yet. But when we do, it will
be on www.SafeWorlds.com.
Pert: How will it scale?
A: We are working up an answer for this now. Will post to SafeWorlds FAQ.
Petr: Will it be possible to "install" new apps/reblets into owned World?
A: That is the plan in the future, but for now you are hitting on Gordon's
questions, about why we are free. We have to make money somewhere, but
Gordon will be happy how we keep the product free.
Petr: Why don't you allow proxy settings or why don't you use http tunneling
like IOS does, please?
A: Working up an answer to this.
Gordon: First, nothing is free. What is the cost going to be - really.
A: First...let me state that we disagree. Walks on the beach (and I live on
Maui), Netscape, Pauley Shore movies (ok, they "should" be free)
Your answer: http://www.safeworlds.com/free.html
Gordon: Is there a SafeWorlds - World that I/We could join to get our
A: You can get your questions answered by asking through the product itself,
or through http://www.safeworlds.com/feedback.html.
I understand the "logic" of making a product like this, and then using it.
But "feedback" is really not what it was designed for. For now we want to
let people "play." And keep feedback formal through a single channel, to
ensure that the final answer is posted on the website. But this might
change. We are keeping it loose.
Gordon: I've set up my LinkSys router to forward the ports 5400-5409 to my
local computer address. Is this what I need to do to allow others to join
Worlds that I set up?
A: Working up and answer to this.
Rishi: World: "superglue" Pass: Guest1 (through 8)?
Cyphre: world: "Rebolheaven" Pass: guest?
A: Please make sure your world is up and running for people to log on.
Basically you are running a client-based/server, which is an odd concept at
first. I see people are having some difficulties getting in. This might be
user error (which user I'm not sure: Master or guest). But, please send
feedback if you confirm it is a bug, or if you figure out something we
should fix to make this easier.
Inviting people using the Guest method is not what this product was
intended for, but something we might need to deal with. Hard to judge
features until the signal to noise ratio of "new product use" calms down.
But this is fun!
