Hello again,

The crash-when-using-internal-viewer bug fixed in 1.12.1 reappeared ! So here is that fixes it again.

MD5 hash for the zip for Windows :

Note to the people who compile from my sources : The patch did not change because the fix does not lie in the "newview" project, and is due to me compiling with VS2005 anyway.


RestrainedLife 1.12.6


This is a security update following the one issued by Linden Lab on 09/26/2008. Check the following link for details :

The security update is not mandatory, but strongly recommended.

In short, the older viewer (and the older version of the server-side code) were allowing an exploit that could eventually lead to give someone else the ability to make YOUR viewer send messages, such as L$ transfers, fake IMs etc. But don't panic, the exploit is not known to have been ever used, as if it had the victims would have been aware of it (since the messages are sent through your viewer). It required some really tight circumstances to allow the attack, but the risk was there.

Now that LL has updated their server-side code, they have also released their client-side code (oh sorry, I meant "the viewer source code"), so here is the latest RestrainedLife viewer including this security fix.

First download the regular SL viewer (v1.20.16) here :

... then download the latest version of the RL viewer (v1.12.6) there :

Keep in mind that the older RL viewer (v1.12.15) is not compatible with the current SL release (v1.20.16). If you attempt to use both at the same time, your viewer will hang.

RestrainedLife 1.12.5

It seems there was a nasty crash (well a hangup situation) when under @shownames so here is an updated version :

MD5 hash for the Windows zip :

Very sorry about that, I have tested it thoroughly but never had that crash before releasing.

RestrainedLife 1.12.4

Hi !

After more than a month here is the next version of the RL viewer. Only one new feature that is not really BDSM-oriented (but very handy nonetheless), but a lot of changes, restrictions getting even more restrictive, and some things added for convenience. Make sure to read the Readme First text file first to get an idea of all that has changed.

There are no new scripts to put or anything to update, it's all in the viewer this time.

As usual you can get both the executable and the sources here :

MD5 hash of the zip for Windows :

Have fun !

A new form of kidnapping ?

~~~ Breaking News ~~~

It seems that someone, or a full organization, takes a wicked pleasure in abducting poor girls and throwing them into dark, remote places. Some of them were never to be seen again, but Haleen S., who got lucky enough to escape from the clutches of her "captors" after hours of desperation, accepted to tell us her story :

"I was hidden in the bushes near the Kelley Technologies dropping area, with the hope to see 'Banes' and perhaps interview one of them. It was dusk, the hour when they like to go back here to execute their daily maintenance, away from prying eyes. I spotted one, drew my camera and then... omg I don't remember clearly... It all went dark"


"I woke up on a cold, stone floor, in what seemed at first to be the basement of a castle. My eyes were not used to the darkness, and I frantically looked for my purse and my camera, nothing ! They had taken them from me !"


"I stood, and saw a corridor, a part of what became more and more to look like an ancient tomb and less and less like a civilized place. It was dark and gloomy, I was scared to hell."


"I walked down corridor after room after corridor, without seeing or hearing anyone, only my rapid heartbeats and a few... omg were they ghosts ? I didn't see any but they were there, I'm sure of it !"


"After hours of exploration, I saw some bright light and... I don't know what happened after that. All I know is that I woke up in another place, and this time all my belongings were returned back to me. I never had the chance to see anybody, or to know where I was. I wonder if it was a dream..."

Haleen went to the hospital after that, where she was offered a short stay at the Paine Institute according to the local Medical Regulation Procedures.

It all happened somewhere near the Kelley Technologies lab
