On this day six years ago, Phoenix rose from the ashes, and from the Phoenix emerged the Firestorm shortly after. Six years ago today the Phoenix-Firestorm Viewer Project was formed, and shortly after we incorporated to form a a responsible, accountable corporation with the simple mission statement To improve the user experience. In those six years we’ve published two very different viewers on two different code bases and have released countless viewer updates. We’ve maintained an average team size of 80 volunteers performing support, quality assurance, development and management; add to that a large team of beta testers and preview testers! Our most recent endeavor has been the development of a Community Gateway where we focus on trying to improve the retention rate of new residents coming into Second Life.
We have accomplished much and, over the years, have persevered through some very tough times and challenges. On this day, as a way of saying thank you for sticking by us — and as we have done for the past five years — we celebrate that we are still here and invite you to celebrate with us at our Anniversary Party!
As in previous years we’ve arranged some awesome live entertainment starting with JavaJoe MacIntyre at 1pm, continuing with Lisa Brune at 2pm and culminating in the headliner performance by Maximillion Kleene at 3pm!
We also have some wonderful gifts for everyone, including:
