First up, I’d really like to thank all of you for your attention to the Weekly Linden account changes column that I ran weekly. Consistently, week after week, for the last 38 weeks the feature has attracted more readers than any other single thing.

This one, listed on the Second Life Marketplace, appears to use the same media-hack to identify the IP address of other users.
The creator suggests that this doesn’t violate the terms-of-service, since it does not send data to any person other than you, nor does it show you the data that it collects.
