Earlier this month I found an open source Box Office script licensed under Creative Commons and took a picture so I’d remember where to return. This is one of the handy features of Snapzilla. Just take a pic, send it there and you can always return later.
The Box Office script allows property owners to run events with a cover charge, split money with the host of the event and more, via the notecard:
Yesterday during our radio show our group attempted to use this and had some problems. The Box Office launched off a bunch of sensors into the neighbors property and kept hammering my lost and found with new sensors. Turns out I was using a “pretty old” version of the script when I contacted the creator Peter Newell he gave me v1.5. I should know better to always check for the newest version before trying to demo something. Doh!
Peter, a friendly chap, stopped by and helped me kill the old sensors and setup the new version so that for next week’s even our group can run a better demo of the program.
I just revisted the official (?) Box Office vendor location [SLurl] and saw that they are dispensing v1.5 also, so you can get the most current copy of the program there.
Box Office was the result of a contest to create a useful community program. There are more details in this SL Forum thread (registration required).
